He got lost then claimed he found the south pole.

Genius.

Yes, we keep getting lost and map a gigantic landmass and chart the territories of penguins. We even have a research base at the south pole. If you claim compasses work on FE, then you can tell when you reached the south magnetic pole.

BTW, this was 1912, now we have airplanes taking off from Argentina, delivering supplies to reserch bases, and landing in Australia.

See this picture, this is the south pole, the geographical south pole. According to the FAQ, lattitude and longitude can be measured correctly. This means that one knows when he is at the geographical south pole. The man was a Sweede in 1912, so he had no GPS, satilites or psudosatelites.

In the backround is the Amsuden-Scott reaserch facility (closed in 2002 as another facility was completed just out of camera range). It has a population of about 70 in the summer and 30 in the winter.

how far does Antarctica go in till you huit the ice wall? Just a question for you FEs.

The distance from the "geographic south pole" and the ice wall is unknown.  No one has ever been there.

Post by: Legacyof22 on March 30, 2009, 08:01:00 PM
This guy has ;D

Let's take away the distance to the ice wall. Lattitude and longitude can be acuratley measured in FE and RE. It's been almost 100 years since Amsuden reached the pole.

Please click the link in my first post, it has a lot of info

"That guy went there. We know the guy went there because he says he went there. He says he went there because he went there."

I'm just trying to point out the lack of support. You can't just post a conclusion without evidence and expect it to mean anything.  :)

Anyhow, I'l get back later, don't have time now to find evidance.

Can I say, remind you, this isn't like UFOs. No, there have been about (estimate) 500-2000 people who have been to the south pole and probobly 100-1000 still alive today. It isn't one freak incident.

Where did you get that number? Was it a third party that you assume to be accurate?

Didn't you get the post card that he sent you from the gift shop?

The number is an educated guess, probobly on the short side. Actualy do reaserch on the south pole and you have historical records of people going there, that plus the Amsuden-Scott reaserch facitlity has housed about 100 poeple a year since the 1970's, I'd say it is on the short side.

As for the guy actually reaching the pole, my point in saying all these people have reached the pole is to prove that he wasn't the only one who has gone there. If I haven't been able to convince you, I should have created a new conspiracy theory. Do the math, a few thousand people, some civilians, who go to get away from normal life. Some are Scientists who (like you, unless you are a troll) fight for only reason and truth. Some are billionare adventurers who come because they can.

Do the math.

If the ice wall is exist, where is the south pole?

sorry, lots of network problems, back now.

That is the thing, someone has reached the south pole, no one has reached the Ice Wall, and the theories don't co-exist.

On the far side of the Earth, directly beneath the north pole.

My mistake, the FAQc says nothing about lattitude and longitude. Can they accuratley be meassuered in FE?

Yes, just the same as in RET.

Then the south pole must be a huge problem for the FE theory, huh?

Well, when you approach 90° S latitude, it becomes more difficult to determine longitude due to the behaviour of the stars that far from the hub. But for all navigational purposes barring trans-Antarctic ventures, both latitude and longitude may be accurately measured.

So you can tell when you have reached the south geographic pole?

Sure. You would get crushed onto the underside of the Earth by Dark Energy.

Post by: theguyontheleft on April 25, 2009, 01:52:59 PM
The issue is that of these many people who have visited the south pole (from many different nations) and of the people who have gone across the center of Antarctica, none have seen the "edge of earth" and the FE theory seems impossible

Are you FE's telling me that researchers and pilots are nothing but sellout liars keeping a conspiracy going for no reason, and that there is a large market for people thinking that the earth is round?  I would ask what would happen if you were personally escorted to the moon to look at the earth ("you" meaning the FE's), but you true believers would just say that you were drugged and put into holographic cocoons and had the whole thing played out in your dreams.  That is why the only true purpose of this forum is to spread your bad humor and slander, b/c we have given you proof, but all you do is throw back in our face and call it a lie.  YOU CAN USE A TELLESCOPE YOU MADE YOURSELF TO LOOK FROM A MOUNTAIN AND SEE THE ROUND HORIZON.  BOATS COME OVER THE HORIZON, GRAVITY EXISTS, THE EARTH HURLS THROUGH SPACE AROUND THE SUN, NASA ISN'T A LIE, THE MOON LANDING BEING FAKED HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FLAT EARTH THEORY (IF IT EVEN WAS FAKED), AND EVERYTHING I JUST SAID MADE HALF OF YOU FE'S LAUGH YOUR ASS OFF B/C YOU THING I AM ACTUALLY ANGRY JUST BECAUSE I TYPED EVERTHING IN THIS LONG-ASS SENTENCE IN ALL CAPS.  YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW ME, SO ACCORDING TO YOUR LOGIC, I DON'T EXIST.  You are all pathetic.

That is exactly what they're saying. and it's physically possible, if not probable, so they have the right to their own opinion.
