Title: I have been to Space and seen the earth is round
Post by: Lance Armstrong on February 03, 2011, 12:38:12 PM
Hi let me introduce myself, well my name is Lance Armstrong and many of you may not know me.
Well i have been to the moon and seen the earth from space and yes it is round, here are some pictures of Earth.
(http://scienceblogs.com/startswithabang/upload/2010/07/new_national_space_policy_for/earth-space.jpg)
Also you can use Google Earth located here to see the Earth
http://www.google.com/earth/index.html (http://www.google.com/earth/index.html)

Well ok you still dont believe the earth is round here are some ways to prove it is and have been around since 1200 ad.
First during a lunar eclipse the moon is block from the earth from getting light from the sun as shown in here
(http://www.boilr.net/wp-content/uploads/2008/02/800px-lunareclipsediagram1.gif)
Now that the Earth blocks the sun we see things called shadows and the shadow of the earth during a penumbra eclipse we see the ROUND earth shadow on the moon.


Also if the earth is flat why havn't we fell of when we get to the end? Why am i able to walk from point a and go stright and end up back at point a?

Thank you hopefully you realized the Earth is round.

First, please give me your definition of straight.

Well Peach First say Hi to Mario for me love his work. second straight is a line connecting two points like this @-----------@. I believe his point is that under your flawed model of of a flat earth one can not fly or "walk" to some places. lets take Australia for an example. If i want to fly there from lax with the "RET" as you call it i can simply fly over the Pacific Ocean. However to do this with your model i would need to fly over land masses. I never crossed over any then i flew there. If that FET were true i would need to fly in an arc around landmasses which would drastically increase the time to fly there. However the ratio of times and distances flown support a round earth. and please dont try to say jet streams have anything to do with this they are already taken to account.

Your understanding of straight is not the same as mine.  I would say it was the shortest line connecting two points.  So I guess we have a conflict of definition.

But you do understand what we are stating tho if you just start at point A and start waling forward you'll never fall off the earth and end up back at point A.

..... thank you for trying to act smart by picking apart my straight line explanation by redefining it the same way again with the word shortest included. We can all go to wikipedia and find definitions, but do you have anything intelligent to say about the little problem with your highly inaccurate model?

IOA I'm pretty sure its a joke and he raises a good point why dont we see a disk shaped shadow on the moon?

You would be following an arc on either model.  Please read the FAQ; then we can talk.

The burden of proof lies with the person who makes the claim, and extraordinary claims are best supported by extraordinary evidence. Claiming that you are a Space Traveller (a fictional being) is an extraordinary claim.

If I claimed that I was an elf (I am not an elf), would you think it right if I demanded that you prove beyond reasonable doubt that I was not an elf?

Ok no more arguing can you disprove the theory

Ok James i agree with you 100% but you yourself fall in to that. Your making a claim that its all a lie well i choose to side with the people who have reason to be believed not and old man with no facts to back it up and only word games to try to confuse the less intelligent.

Yet you all still avoid the arguments that we have both made you all choose to jump on the joke you dont see and try to act intelligent and noble by attacking him and skirting the facts that disprove you.

Oh please James don't try to make me look like some one who hates people based on something like that. Are you not an old man? than what should i call you the man on the internet? and like i said you are in fact right in what you said however you yourself should be questioned under that logic. Meaning i have no more reason to believe you than i do them. You however tried to word it in a way that could be slightly confusing to lesser minds (we cant over look the fact that not ever one has the same level of intelligences). Often when one does this they are actively trying to confuse and through that confusing try to remove themselves from being included in their own logic.

You can't travel in a straight line and end up where you started on either model. That's not physics, it's common sense. Either way you need to walk in a circle.

You're not walking in a straight line on FE because you'd have to be following a compass, which would lead you on a huge circle round the North Pole. If you think you can walk in a straight line unassisted, please see anyone who ever got lost in deserts or woods.

J, do a search next time (this has been covered several times before, along with the next thirty things you're going to think of to disprove FE) and stop defending Armstrong because he's a pathetic ignorant prick. Armstrong, you're a pathetic wretch and you're mocking the names of two great men (Neil thought he was going to the moon, he's still pretty brave; and Lance won the Tour De France despite obvious balance issues) and you should probably take up masochism.

Q: So what about flight times then? How can FEr's calculate times with the distorted map above?

A: Quite simply RErs can't do that either. There are two many variables. Performance is effected by fuel loads, ambient temperatures and pressures, engine models, the list goes on. Depending on what is happening with other traffic you might be in a hold, or routed out of your way to avoid other traffic or storms. The pilots do not fly direct to their destination either. Depending on the wind they might take off in the opposite direction to the intended route. They then fly SIDS (Standard Instrument Departures) onto a route, follow some beacons, get onto an Oceanic Highway on the way their, follow a STAR (STandard ARrival) on approach, and again go right round the back of an airport to land in the right direction. When pilots are following routes like the typical ones below, how can anyone make a simple straight line DST comparison to ascertain shape? Only the aircraft's Flight Management System really knows how far that trip is. The pilot just uses the data it provides. However FMS source code is closely guarded.


Quote
Q: Well what about flying in the Southern 'Hemisphere'? Surely that would take much longer than times we have.

A: No. Pilots make use of jet-streams in both directions.
Quote
Jet streams are undulating bands of strong, high-altitude winds, associated with cold fronts. They have an average altitude of 10 km and may occasionally exceed 400 km/h. Pilots often seek out a jet stream to speed their jet planes along.

so many things prove you wrong and you try to defend a crumbling lie
the simple fact you can go west from point "A" and continue to go west and end where you started at point "A" proves it is round like the other guy explained.

fuck the flat world it is truely round!!!!

Read the FAQ. Circumnavigation is not an issue on a flat Earth.
state the fact why its not? circumnavagation is real and a fact it happens all the time

you people are stupid if you truely believe the earth is flat.

It does. It can happen on a flat earth. Consider the north pole to be the centre of the circle, and the earth projected around it with the south pole surrounding the edge. There is still the problem of circumpolar circumnavigation, but we are still  waiting for an answer on that front.

look at a FET map its easy to work out :S

i still find it hard to believe jet streams can make such a big difference though. thanks for showing me though i must admit i havnt read that bit before cheers. afterall it would take months to read everything on here!

more proof of a round earth:

Rotation of the starry sky every 23 hours and 56 minutes, proves Earth moves in relation to the sun. The sun appears to move around Earth in 24 hours. For the stary sky and sun motions to not be an equal time, then it is the Earth moving in relation to the two other references. Repeated for one year, this proves Earth goes around the sun once each year because the starry sky will repeat its patterns once each year.
Sticks of equal lengths perpendicular to the ground have unequal shadows at the same time of day. This proves the world is a sphere.
By measuring the angle of the shadow compared to true north and length of the shadow at noon GMT you can find the latitude and longitude of each stick's location. Collectively, this data proves Earth is a least a half sphere. Repeated on the other side of the world at 12 midnight GMT, you can prove the entire world is a sphere.
The sun rotating around the sky once a day proves rotation of Earth on it's axis if you also know premise 1 and premise 2 as stated above.

haha i love how all the people here that know the earth is round have proof but "flatearthers" or what ever they call themselves have almost none... well none that makes any logical sense

I love how noobs act like everyone here believes in FE. I personally don't. However, I really must commend the new RE'ers here for descending to levels of stupidity lower than that of the moon shrimp argument.

I find it funny beyond all belief that not one of you has tried to disprove us. You all seem to concerned with the fact you all have no sense of humor. James Please prove that to me, pretend this is the court system (your apparently good at playing pretend), beyond reasonable doubt that its a lie.

I won't say this often, and I hate having to, but lurk moar.

@Tausami - As a noob you are learning fast. 
@Lovell - you really, really need to lurk moar. Not only has he cast reasonable doubt many times, he will also inform you the onus is on you to prove the FEers wrong. So evidence?
