The posting (with the same title on September 7) was taken removed for further review at Jerry L Krause’s request while he reexamine one of his premises. He has brought it back with comments, changes and dialogue which I think you will find most interesting. So, be enlightened, entertained and take his challenge.

Author’s Note: A fact is that CB posted my previous essay with a very similar title which contained a gross error. He offered to take down this essay but I consider even a greater error is to hide one’s errors. Buckminster Fuller considered we can only learn from our errors. For just because an idea worked when tested in a given situation, it might have worked for a different reason (idea) than that being considered. So, he concluded it is very important for humans to share with others that which they clearly have found does not work. Because of the gross blunder I had recognized, I began to ponder what other errors I might have made. And I have concluded there were. So while the title is similar, it needed to be modified a bit. So, I concluded that the beginning of my essay needs to be totally different.
At some early time I believe prehistoric people observed clouds to frequently form and dissolve again, without any precipitation occurring, just as we do today. And from the beginning I believe all human babies began to drink their mother’s milk in order to survive. And later in these babies’ lives many began to drink the milk produced by other animals as I have. So what these early humans, and many since, likely have observed, if they noticed things, applies to the natural phenomenon we term Tyndall scattering or the Tyndall effect or colloidal scattering
But it is an all too common observation that we don’t notice common everyday observations (things). To support this idea, I ask a few questions which only each individual reader can answer. First, do you know what the phenomenon we term the Tyndall scattering (etc.) is? If your answer is: no, you cannot know what these prehistoric people could have seen that could have been related to Tyndall scattering. If yes, the second question is: do you know how, what these prehistoric people could have seen, applies to the natural phenomenon of Tyndall scattering? And if your answer is no, you cannot know how this natural phenomenon applies to the observation of the invisible (to our eyes) downwelling longwave infrared (IR) measured by an instrument of the SURFRAD project at seven locations in the USA. And if your answer is yes, do you know how this natural phenomenon applies to the observation of the invisible (to our eyes) downwelling longwave infrared (IR) measured by an instrument of the SURFRAD project (https://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/grad/surfrad/dataplot.html) at seven locations in the USA? And if your answer is yes, you can read what follows and help me discover any errors which still exist by making comments.
