In a Thread in the "On the Fringe : Alternative Theories :" sub-forum of SciForums, the following was Posted (Bold by dmoe): - the ^^above quoted^^ from Post #11 of : http://www.sciforums.com/showthread.php?142209-Solar-Cycle-cause&highlight=spiral Okay, I realize that this was Posted in the "On the Fringe : Alternative Theories :" sub-forum, so does that mean that it "can be" or indeed "is only" an 'alternative' view? I ask because it seems to conflict with what I have been taught and learned of the 'orbit' of our Solar System within the Milky Way Galaxy. I was taught and learned that our Solar System resides in one of the lesser arms of the Milky Way, commonly referred to as "Orion's Arm" or "Orion's Spur". From what I understand, our Solar System maintains its position in that lesser arm during it's 'orbit' of the Milky Way Galaxy. I start this Thread so that possibly some Members may be able to clarify the issue. It may well be that I was taught and learned spurious information, and although I find that rather hard to believe, I could and would of course have no choice but to accept that, if presented with True Scientific Evidence that what I was taught and learned was indeed spurious information. Until such time that any pertinent True Scientific Evidence is presented, I have no choice but to consider the Bold part of the ^^above quoted^^ Post be be, for all intents and purposes, nothing more than false, or 'nonsense'.
