Tell him that you would think it was black too if your head was as far up your ass as his is.

i'm sry to tell you but the blue comes from atoms in the air. so he is in fact correct because what we see is not the pure form. at least i think he was going towards that

But isn't the sea blue because of a reflection of the sky, so hence if the sky is black then the sea too must also be black.. my perception has been altered significantly.

the color of the sea is determined by the plankton and other organisms living in it from what i recall. the reflection of light in water wouldn't have a bit impact because it's not a perfect reflection and the in coming angle changes often because of the slightest movement on it's surface. so to get some kinds of an angle you'd have to look at a derivation of an integral with time being the linear changing constant

well i'm not 100% sure of the fact stated above with the derivation of an integral.... it could also be a differential equation that has an unexpected irregular singularity

This is what I learned about the sky, in physics

The blue color of the sky is due to Rayleigh scattering. As light moves through the atmosphere, most of the longer wavelengths pass straight through. Little of the red, orange and yellow light is affected by the air.

However, much of the shorter wavelength light is absorbed by the gas molecules. The absorbed blue light is then radiated in different directions. It gets scattered all around the sky. Whichever direction you look, some of this scattered blue light reaches you. Since you see the blue light from everywhere overhead, the sky looks blue.

I got this from a website, but that's basically what they taught us

To our eyes, it's blue, because the atoms color it that way.

Therefore it's blue.

actually it's not. same thing is with time and speed. and with a lot of other things

that's pretty accurate actually.
now the fact that is out there is also the colors that the human eye sees. for what we know we can recognize let's say 56 colors. but with the wave lengths there can be way more. so blue doesn't have to be blue at all but rather a different color that our eyes is unable to see.

but seriously guys this topic makes as much sense as the question "if a tree falls in the woods and there is nobody near, does it make a sound?". by being a physicist will always say yes because it causes waves and sound is actually transmitted by waves. byd being satirical will ask "and what if it falls on a rodent?". and the non believers will say that there is no f***ing way that it made a sound because there was no one to hear it. therefor it can not make a sound

Somethings we're just not supposed to think about too much. Like time travel. That shit'll kick your ass. Anyway, atmospheric interference is a bitch. Sorry ya had to find out this way. Sad
