    What is FreakyKBH's concept of an eclipse in his preferred model of a flat Earth?

    And you have joined many here who attach Duchess by maligning her to others rather than addressing her directly. She asked a perfectly reasonable question above.

    Using mathematical modelling I presume.

    I don't think any elephants or turtles or giant men were involved.

    Don't presume.
    What heliocentric/orbital dynamic model are they using?

    He is and he is correct. If you are going to be a malingerer, then no more mucking about in hyperspace, just line up your target, launch your tirade and await your shower of brickbats and bouquets....

    Little escapes your notice.
    Find the answer and you'll probably figure out the point.

    They use necromancy, if that fails they summon a Besselian demon.
