I actually haven't played AOE 3 for a couple of weeks. As with anything hobby, my interest in it waxes and wanes. Besides, I've been too busy. I worked on an engine today and got it running well again, then did some mowing and watering. After those chores were chore was done, I worked on a powered tin snip that was bought for nothing at a sale, unjamming it and greasing the gears. All it needs now is a switch, which I ordered. I tilled up half the garden then came in and spent a couple of hours posting here and helping on the technical forums. I then installed some handrails in my parent's bathrooms. Just a typical day around the property. Right now, I'm watching the lunar eclipse -- it's covered about 7/8ths of the moon and I'm wondering if it will be total. After I post this I'm going back out with binoculars to watch more of it.

I thought there was no eclipse in the usa. Anyhow, watching it aswell while enjoying a special beer. Unfortunately I live in a reasonavly sized city (called the Netherlands) so I cant see it too well. Dont have binoculours either.

Its wonderful how it gets red (its for the same reason the sky is blue).

I wonder if ancient greeks used this to calculate the size of the moon.

Around 240 BCE, Eratosthenes calculated the size of the Earth to within a few hundred kilometers of its actual size. Around the same time, Aristarchus and others not only calculated the size of the earth but also that of the moon and the distance of the moon from the earth. Their calculations were a bit from current measurements but not by as much as one would imagine, especially considering that these early astronomers had only their eyes for observation. Unfortunately, the Catholic Church then gained power and for a couple thousand years eclipses were thought to either be caused by the "Devil" or a sign from "God." It wasn't until 1992 that the Catholic Church admitted that they were wrong and that the earth did indeed revolve around the sun.

Even now, certain churches have to assuage the fears of their members, many of whom still think that an eclipse is a sign from their god that the end is nigh.

I'm not kidding about this:

The Mormon Church is reminding its 15 million members that just because a supermoon and lunar eclipse are happening simultaneously tomorrow night doesn't mean the world as we know it is ending...

Theres just one thing off about your post, and thats that you make it seem like the people in the middle ages thoughts different things than those in the antique times. Fact is that the church didnt fight the ideas of the ancient greeks, or aristotle in particular, especially not when it comes to astronomy. Quite the opposite was true, they embraced it fully.

The problem with Copernicus' idea wasnt only that it was incompetible with the church (not specifically because god stopped the sun but more because it implied that it implied the stars were so far away that earth could be considered insignificantly small), but mostly that it destroyed Aristotles complete theory (which strechted from philosophy to physics to medicin).

Some historian wrote (excuse me that I dont have the exact source, I am on my phone just about to go to sleep) that the biblical interpretation was sometimes even adjusted to be compatible with aristotles works.

During the medieval ages, the influx of new knowledge mostly stopped. People considered the older people wiser than them. The older a source, the more power it had. They did however improve upon aristotles ridiculous theory of mechanics and came up with the principle of impetus (or implied force), which is remarkably similair to the laws of newton.

I was educated as a scientist. Unfortunately, when I took calculus the majority of the class were business majors so the professor geared the instruction to solving business problems. The lack of science-oriented examples didn't hurt me much though as I have never used calculus since. Calculus is just not used in field biology -- it's all statistics.
