    Andrea (the lab manager) is awesome.

    I must confess. Any "wingeing" you hear from Brady Haran about how long this collab took is 100% true. We filmed this 4 years ago (!). He's bugged me to publish it every two months or so, so as a way to express my sincere apology I'd like to humbly request that you go watch his video and consider subscribing on Objectivity. Also, if you do so, please leave a comment about how it was worth the wait and he should quit his wingeing. Here's his video. (I didn't know about the Genesis Rock!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvhLBzsDwSQ

    Also check out Joe Hanson's video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr28zMXQ3bU

      Bill Martin + Jared = WORTHLESS

      You believe that billions of years ago there was a Big Bang, in which nothing exploded and created everything. The earth supposedly was formed 4.6 billion years ago as a hot ball of ROCK. So there we have your ROCK. Then it rained on this ROCK for millions of years creating a primordial soup. Then the soup MAGICALLY came alive about 3 billion years ago and man ultimately came into existence 3 million years ago. All thanks to a ROCK and some rain.

      It's sad and hard to believe that you call this science. None of this has ever been OBSERVED, TESTED, or DEMONSTRATED.

      Evolutionists hate to hear this but it is true: evolution is a religion. It calls for FAITH in many different areas and it does NOT belong in the science textbooks.

      BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA please keep responding your stupidity is hilarious!!!

      Jarod Strain=delusional+desperate

      You're just another dumb dumb that believes he evolved from a rock!!! Ahahahaha To have such a STUPID BELIEF is this day and age is just stubborn and willfully ignorant. It's time to grow up, you're too old to believe your ancestors were rocks!! Let go of your childish ways.

      Trolling Moon Rock YouTube video comment threads just to try and convince people they evolved from a rock is idiotic and pathetic. Why would I listen to someone like yourself, especially someone that has faith they came from a rock?? Ahahahaha

      You have to make a choice. Either you're willfully ignorant or just plain dumb as rocks!! I like to believe there's hope for humanity and believe you're just willfully ignorant.

      Please give me hope and tell me you trust your five senses. Trusting your five senses is the gift of will that will set you free!!

      Please stop memorizing and regurgitating someone else's belief system. Especially if those beliefs came from dirty old pedophiles. Theres no need to memorize books. Your five senses are what make you human and intelligent. Don't go against them!!

      Bill Martin has no MATH SKILLS.

      I'm trying to help you not make a fool of yourself again.

      Here I'll make it real easy for you since simple high school geometry is OBVIOUSLY not your strong point.

      1. Go to your refraction calculator copy and paste the calculations to this comment thread.

      2. I will then HIGHLIGHT where your YOUR DELUSIONAL CALCULATOR increases THE SIZE OF EARTH BY 4,618.83 MILES by adding a multiplier to the radius of EARTH.

      Please do this for me. I really love ending my night with a laugh.

      Remember kiddo ...

      BAHAHA of course refraction calculators will CALCULATE ANY DISTANCE you ask it, you dumb dumb.

      ... and that's where ball gobblers don't use common sense.

      ... and that's where a prediction calculator DOES NOT = REALITY.

      Here's why ... if an object is ALREADY COMPLETELY HIDDEN and BELOW THE HORIZON than it would be impossible for refraction to even refract.


      First you must calculate 2 equations COMPLETELY ...




      from there if the object is STILL IN VIEW than you can attempt to play with your silly refraction numbers.

      Bill Martin is delusional.

      bahaha of course REFRACTION exists silly girl but it sure can't magically levitate COMPLETELY HIDDEN OBJECTS 4 miles into the air and AROUND A BALL, you SILLY girl!

      Keywords for you = 'COMPLETELY HIDDEN' and 'AROUND a BALL.'


      Like I said you can't apply a refraction coefficient to an object that is already COMPLETELY HIDDEN and BELOW THE HORIZON.

          Can someone please explain one thing to me.. Why have 2.5k people disliked this video.. I mean either you find this video about moon interesting and you watch it entirely or you don't find it interesting enough (i don't know why) and go back to doing whatever you were doing before.. Why would someone take the pain to intentionally clicking the dislike button.....

              Oh my gosh, Destin you are the most excited nerd I’ve stumbled across in my 55 years of life. You have screws lose. And I must also, because I’m fascinated with your videos. Just watched vortex rings. Wow. Didn’t expect that. Thanks for inspiring us and exciting us out here. Love seeing your family also. Good looking crew, brother. Look forward to spending non time with you on the other side!
