Who is this "they" ? The government? Some scientific body?


Are people silly enough to believe that scientists who know the Earth isnt 93 Mil away would stay silent on this , and not explain the truth?

Hey I just finished measuring it with my triactular sunbeam measuring stick and it came out to 93,123,632 miles and 14.5 inches, give or take a 1/4 inch. And that's the truth.
