Although the demonstration with the balled up piece of paper and pen is very compelling, Pierce lost me when he called it the earth’s accent instead of axis.
I have a feeling I’m not the only one who was close to being convinced by Pierce’s quick, yet highly sophisticated, scientific argument based on his in-depth years of research.
