The motherly instinct isn't as culturally universal as you might think. While there is an undisputed biological basis for it, in some cultures this is either diminished or suppressed entirely. For example, in certain small societies living in very hot, dry regions, when a baby is born it is left naked to spend its first night outside. If it survives (being 'strong' enough) it is then brought in to be raised, if not, it is unceremoniously buried and life goes on...

How is such a system so stable?

I reckon Tom or someone will hack FES and shut it down. He will then feel satisfied that he has demonstrated a conspiracy, but will have no space to gloat about it. The forethought required to avoid this hitch is beyond his grasp of course...

Apparently 'up' is an absolute direction.

So the story is just an exploration, not some kind of change?

Nothing wrong with that of course...

In a massive source text where you can interpret whatever vowels and phrasing you wish, there will of course be codes to be found by those who 'look' for them (more like creating them).

The statistics are in your favour.

There would be a need if said protagonist did not agree with the system.

For example the en-masse execution of dissidents might ring a few alarm bells in his little protagonist-head....

The final lines of the book are: "The scar had not pained Harry for 18 years. All was well."

It's 19 years! Did you actually read it?

Jesus!!!!

Well it's not magic if you ignore Tom's ridiculousness about the stars and planets having gravitation when the Earth does not. Then it's just a case of 'no gravity'.

It does seem a little more magic when some objects (just terrestrial ones) have no gravitation and others do.

I no longer have any idea what trig is arguing for, except the NUMBERS, WHY DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND THE SECRETS ARE IN THE NUMBERS!!!11!1!1!!!!!

I bet it's hiding somewhere. Just behind a planet or something.

This thread confuses me, as it seems to state what we know already. You may consider Newton a good approximating model for 'everyday' use, where distances are such that light appears to travel at infinite speed (as do the effects of gravitation). Other than that, it has been surpassed.

My old physics teacher used to call numbers like 195 and 207 'pretty much 200', so I guess there's the reason Newton survives still.

Mathematicians have never stood for that kinda shit.

If you look over a large expanse of flat ground on a semi-cloudy day you will notice you can see the undersides of clouds in the far distance more so than those slightly nearer....i.e. the clouds are tilted 'downwards' as if sloping. I observed this effect yesterday, and saw that the Earth was round with my own eyes.

Why should we ignore the evidence of our senses and presume the ridiculous idea of a Flat Earth to be the truth?

I must remind you that the value of c never changes. If c were nearly 0, we would be in quite serious trouble.

Ignoring that oversight, you have successfully demonstrated that Einstein and Newton are in close agreement at non-relativistic speeds.

Erm, your point is?

Are there even Hispanics in Britland?

I guess, but we don't call them 'Hispanic'.

There's all kinds of people in Britland, London especially. If I get on a bus from the end of my road I'm probably gonna be the only white guy on it...

I love this town  8)

How do you know how wealthy I am?  Are you assuming that because I am Hispanic, I must be poor?

I was assuming that. Then again, I am pretty racist!  ;D


I still don't understand what a Round Earth Society is for...is it like the Wet Water Society?

P.S. Please do not start a Wet Water Society.

P.P.S. In Englandtown there is no culturally ingrained racial stereotype for Hispanic people...

The correct model?

Surely at best it is a correct model.

Time is not quantized. Relativity and Quantum Mechanics assumes that time is continuous, indivisible. Therefore, there is no such thing as an exact moment of Midnight.

Have you ever heard of an instant?

Like in the context of instantaneous velocity or acceleration.

The FES has no members. The closest you get to an FES member is a member of the FES forums (that's us).

If you want my advice, I'd drop it (like it's hot).

Celestial objects have gravitation, so when you get closer to them they pull on you slightly.....apparently.

The moon may never crash into the Earth.

It is not crashing right now because the force of gravitation between it and the Earth is only changing its velocity enough to maintain a (roughly) circular path, but if this force is not great enough the Moon's velocity won't change fast enough, and it will spiral away.

It would be possible, but the effect would decrease with distance and probably be far too imprecise to draw a clear conclusion, even with advanced imaging software. Nice idea though.

The Bedford Level experiment has been proven wrong and useless.

Sad thing is, we didn't do it. It was Rowbotham that proved it for us. Check back soon for further information. Sleepy time now!
