Great question!

I suppose it was the early map-makers that started this view of our planet, who were mainly from the northern hemisphere. We tend to think that north is up and south is down, but I'm sure that there are deniers in Australia, New Zealand and Argentina. There is no scientific basis that I'm aware of for this view. There is no up or down in space. "That's the way it's always been" has never been a good answer for me.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is this the time when all those Pagan chicks are out there in the woods without their clothes on?

Total bullshit equinox here in Massachusetts. There was plenty of snow on the ground.

Not total bullshit. The daylight was over 12 hours. Thumbsup

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
