Thanks Carol!

Well, if we were being very "subtil" (in terms of drawing very fine lines and distinctions)(!) we might draw a distinction between having "bias" and being "deliberately dishonest."

I'm sure my own writings display various biases, of which in many instances I may be completely unaware -- but that is a different thing than saying that I set out to deliberately deceive anyone (which I do not do).

So, I might quibble a bit and argue that those sites you mention could have biases, without being part of a grand deliberate deception to trick us into an unwarranted belief in International Space Stations.

But, I would say that most of the recent aggressive proponents of flat-earth theories would assert that very thing (in other words, that there is a grand deliberate deception about satellites and space stations). I certainly don't wish to get into a discussion about that, except to say that (as noted) my own observations provide me with sufficient evidence to conclude that we are in fact living on a spherical planet earth, traveling around the sun, accompanied by an orbiting moon, in the company of the mighty planets Jupiter, Venus, and all the rest!

Interestingly, CS Lewis has a powerful illustration of the use of intentionally dishonest sophistry with the purpose of controlling the thoughts and desires of others in the Chronicles of Narnia, in The Silver Chair.
