WOW!!! Are you that dim(lol) Lets go back before real science, back to the discovery of fire. When they had fire do you think that they may have thought the light from the fire traveled out to light things up to be seen or that things traveled to the light of the fire to be seen. LOL
how could you prove it without science?

Gee, i'm crushed that a guy who can't figure out it is the rider that balances a bike thinks poorly of me...

and one who actually gives any credence at all to such whackjob ideas as those sites you liked to...

Uhm I would say by looking and common sense. Light a torch and look around. Does the light go out to the items you see or do the items you see come to the torch? LOL

by your eyesight it is just there. it moves far too fast to see light move so one could only prove that it moves using scientific methods. as happened in the real world.

still can't figure out that a bicycle balances because the rider, huh? gee that's a tricky one. you do know a person can also balance on a stick or pretty much anything don't you?

time for you to use that common sense you referred to earlier.

I would bet way back when man invented the wheel,,, without science you would think the earth rolled across the wheel instead of the wheel rolling across the earth.

That is how you see light. You think without science we would not know light traveled out to illuminate things. LOL

Well, i'm outta here. while i'm gone, take you bike and push it down the street and watch it fall over eventually, then ride it and see if you can see the one thing different that keep it from falling over...

that should keep you occupied for a while...

So again by your logic. If you lit a torch you would not know the light moved out to illuminate things? So you would think the things moved closer to you to be seen. OH I get it now. You would think everything moved closer to the fire to get warm. LMAO

Again if you lit a torch you may not be able to see the light actually move but you would see were it reached out to, thus it had to move out because those things did not move closer to the light. You keep falling lower down the pole of nonsense.

The gyroscopic effect has practically nothing to do with riding a bike.

If someone is claiming that he is flat our wrong.

Yep as I said "Scientists have been puzzling over what makes bicycles balance since they were invented, back in the 19th century. In 2007, a group of engineers and mathematicians led by Nottingham University's J.P. Meijaard announced they'd finally cracked the mystery with a set of incredibly complex mathematical equations that explain how a bicycle behaves—and it turns out that gyroscopes are only part of the story"

The gyroscope effect is a very small part. In fact one group developed bicycle with a counter-rotating wheel to take out the gyroscopic effect and the bicycle was still balanced in almost the same way.

Not quite the article I was looking for, but with this bike the gyroscopic effect can be almost eliminated:

Counter steering is what keeps a bicycle upright. And it also means that when you want to go left on a bicycle you first have to steer left.

Jupiter's a gas planet. It would burn up before it hit the corona of the sun more than likely. In theory I was speaking of an metor (more than an asteroid which is ice and would melt) of a substantially large size that would penetrate to the interior of the sun. But as I stated it was a hypothetical theory not to be taken literal. I was making a hypothetical point of the earth.

Come on geography boy, tell us where were is. Spell check doesn't correct real words religitard. Would you like to try again? Still don't believe in evolution, how about I drop a fossil on your foot? If you weren't hom skooled you wouldn't need to be spell checked.

For ages, scientists assumed that the gyroscopic effect (the force that keeps a spinning top from falling over) was the key for a bike's balance. In the '70s, science disproved that theory.
