Flat Earth Debate / Suspension Bridges...?
« on: December 20, 2007, 08:05:37 PM »
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humber_Bridge


Quote
Each tower consists of a pair of hollow vertical concrete columns, each 155.5 metres (510 ft) tall and tapering from 6 metres (20 ft) square at the base to 4.5 metres (14.8 ft) x 4.75 metres (15.6 ft) at the top. The bridge is designed to tolerate constant motion and bends more than 3 metres (10 ft) in winds of 80 miles per hour (129 km/h). The towers, although both vertical, are not parallel, being 36 millimetres (1.4 in) further apart at the top than the bottom as a result of the curvature of the earth.[1]

Just a question...

With the incredible weight and torque and everything, wouldn't it be an undue amount of stress to put on the structure, just to perpetuate the "round earth myth?"

Flat Earth Q&A / The Double Slit Experiment (Engy, please read!)
« on: November 17, 2007, 08:57:28 PM »
Hi guys,

I have a topic completely apart from FE/RE.  I need someone with actual knowledge of Quantum Mechanics to reply to this.

I've read pages and pages and pages relating to the double slit experiment.  Basically, it proves light is both a particle and a wave.  I understand it, basically (well, as much as I can understand physics stuff, anyhow).

I need to know the answer to one question, and I haven't found anything conclusive in my research. 

Does the double slit experiment, in any way, touch on the effect of thought/consciousness?

I would like an unbiased answer, so when I get it, I will let you guys in on why I want to know.  Until then, please let me know what you know.   ;D :-*

Flat Earth Debate / Why Argue Semantics?
« on: November 14, 2007, 10:14:37 PM »
n scientific usage gravitation and gravity are distinct. "Gravitation" is the attractive influence that all objects exert on each other, while "gravity" specifically refers to a force which all massive objects (objects with mass) are theorized to exert on each other to cause gravitation. Although these terms are interchangeable in everyday use, in theories other than Newton's, gravitation is caused by factors other than gravity. For example in general relativity, gravitation is due to spacetime curvatures which causes inertially moving objects to tend to accelerate towards each other.

Okay.  Generally, people who come here are LAYpeople, right?  Not people with PhDs in physics.  Not always people who have even sat in on a physics class once in their lives. 

So, if gravity and gravitation are interchangeable in everyday use, why not let it slide when new people use the term "gravity?"  Maybe tell them the difference, then go on to discuss whatever point they were trying to make?  It only serves to piss people off when you treat them like morons.  Seriously, why?



PS, I think that if you keep going on about "there is no such thing as gravity," you should just shut up about the UA as a force.  Both are theoretical.  One isn't true just because you say the other is false.

Flat Earth Q&A / So.... The Real FES...?
« on: November 12, 2007, 10:37:05 PM »
Okay, so this is the FES forums, but is it the center of the "official" FES?

Okay, so this site has the "crazy" going for it, but I can't tell if it's being facetious or not.   ???

----After spending over sixteen million dollars and using over 48 thousand yards of industrial strength strapping tape, we of the Flat Earth Society were able to construct an enormously powerful neurotransmitter that can implant suggestions directly into the brains of the nearby non-Flat Earthers. Having set it up just outside of the Russian Antarctic exploration post (Vostok), we are awaiting word that all three scientists and 174 penguins have been shown the light.

See what I mean?  I swear, if TomB posted this on the forum tomorrow, I would not even blink in surprise...




On a side note... I was reading this website... all I can say is WHAT THE F*CK?!

The original flat earth was confined, restricted, and twisted into a perverse spherical shape by a conspiracy of TELEVISION BROADCASTERS in an attempt to realize their dream of TOTAL HUMAN MIND CONTROL through subsurviant captive homogonized market share....The big question of course is how they managed to spherize the Earth. There is some speculation that they somehow managed to tinker with some of the cosmological constants that define our particular universe in such a way as to redefine the world's stable state from flat to spherical.



Now, I'm starting to think TomB is the sane one...  :o :o :o

Flat Earth Debate / Do You BELIEVE?!
« on: November 11, 2007, 10:53:00 PM »
Well, after hanging out for over a year and joining just last month, I decided it was time to see who really believes all this "Flat Earth stuff."  I know a lot of us here don't, and that many who say they do are just FE'ers for the sport of debate.  You can post below what your real beliefs are or bumps or anything else you wish. 

Please just be honest when you vote for your own personal belief in a flat/round earth.  I would like to get accurate statistics.  :)

Flat Earth Debate / Some Unanswered Questions...
« on: November 03, 2007, 01:27:13 PM »
Hello,

Though I am new here, I have been reading this site for about a year on and off.  Frankly, it astounds me that people actually believe in a flat earth in this day and age.  But that is aside the point.  I just wanted you guys to know my stance before getting to my question.

Please don't ask me to read the FAQ, as I have gone over it numerous times.  And if you are going to cite "Earth: Not a Globe," please tell me where specifically you are pulling information from.  I have the digital copy to go on, and can't find a needle in a haystack.



Now, I understand that you believe in the Ice Wall.  And it's obvious that there is air in our atmosphere, else how would we breathe?  Is it your stance that the atmosphere only extends so high?  Such as 150 miles or something?  If so, what keeps the air from "falling off" the world?  It can't be the ice wall, can it?  If it were, the ice wall would be very visible, wouldn't it?

Or is it your stance that there is no such thing as the vacuum of space?  In this case, how do you explain the thinning of the air as one travels to greater altitudes?  It can't be that the acceleration of the earth is "catching" the air and making it denser. 



I will leave my queries at that, since all other questions I have have been asked and "answered" previously.  This one I have not found addressed anywhere and I am baffled when it comes to finding any way to make logical sense out of this.  (Well, as logical as anything else on this site...)
