'hmmn interesting' given that anyone can come up with any set of values.
A flaw in my book denotes that you can (not simply theoretically) but data based prove the opposite as true..
I don't know enough about the subject to take either side, I'll stand in the middle since it is the only place to be when not sure.. Not looking for a miracle where one might or might not exist, and not offer a contrary contention just for the sake of it!
all the best
The video doesn't show its calculations either so technically it is irrelevant, but anyway the quickest way to find a point the distance of which to one pole divided by its distance to the other pole equals phi = 1.61803399, is 180/(1+phi) = 68.753882.
So the point we are looking for is either 21.246118 N or 21.246118 S.
Kaaba is 21.4225 N, which makes it approximately 12 miles off.
That is if we consider the Earth to be a perfect sphere, which it isnt, I'm gonna try do the same with an Erath like elipse/oid, but I don't think the results will differ significantly.
