The Moon is Made Of Green Cheese
Or How To Become A Professor Of Astrophysics - just repeat after me and put down in your exam papers which I and my peers will mark âThe Moon Is Made Of Green Cheese â and you too will pass with flying colours. Well this piece of folklore is no longer emphasised since Neil Armstrong didnât sink down to his armpits in gooey Gorgonzola but the rest of their fantasy world is alive and well - namely that The Universe had a beginning and will suffer an ignominious end, that the speed of light is constant everywhere and at all times except when it wasn't in their â Expansion Phaseâ, that everything in the Universe is attracted to everything else in the Universe according to the Law Of Universal Gravitation except that it doesn't as everything is supposed to be flying apart at a great rate of knots, that the most common element in the Universe is Hydrogen and it becomes Helium with boundless output of energy which their fellow Professors Of Physics across the hall have continued the promise made sixty years ago that in thirty years from that time they will have this energy harnessed. They are at least consistent in this respect as In Thirty Years Time from the present time they have promised they will have this energy harnessed. The list goes on and on - Black Holes, Cold Dark Matter, Anti Matter, it doesn't matter just so long as you repeat this claptrap. Welcome to the cosy club.
Yes, you can assume from the above that I have set the full main and jib and coasting along before a gentle breeze wondering what I will do for the rest of my day.
