The Lounge / Making my once a yearly visit
« on: March 27, 2013, 09:51:19 AM »
Hey, first time here since 2011. Most people probably don't remember me. Are Saddam, Gayer, Draincover, Oscar (I know he left but maybe he's come back), Space Cowgirl, Tom Bishop, etc. still here?

-ROUND000 (Roundoo)

The Lounge / Hey
« on: July 22, 2010, 12:22:59 PM »
Hey it's Roundoo I can't firgure out how to change my name back and I'm not sure why I did it in the first place but I don't really care. I haven't been here for a while so I thought I'd stop by and say hey. The only people I remember are Oscar Wilde, General Gayer (something like that) taters, Space Cowgirl, Saddam, and this one guy who had a Linux penguin as his avatar. Are any of you still here?

Flat Earth Q&A / Let's play pretend
« on: September 09, 2008, 01:28:08 PM »
Ok FErs, let's pretend this. I gather all of you and we go to the moon. You look and you see the Earth's curvature, proving it's round. What would you do then? Would you accept that the Earth actually is round or would you quickly agree that you are all unknowingly wearing virtual reality helmets? Because that's what I can imagine you doing.  ::)

So anyways, what would you do if you saw Earth's curvature?

Flat Earth Debate / Sun's orbit around FE
« on: August 19, 2008, 08:52:56 AM »
Ok so apparently FErs think the Sun just magically orbits the Earth in a way that just happens to cause seasons.

Quote
As the sun orbits over the Earth, the Flat Earth theory maintains that the sun's orbit radius changes, causing it to be directly overhead different locations at different times of the year. There is no explanation of the mechanism that causes this.

So first of all...how does the Sun just "magically" be in the right spot in at the right time of the year? What would cause it to change its orbit? How is it orbiting Earth without gravity? Why am I asking you all these questions?

FErs, explain if you can.  ::)

Flat Earth Q&A / FLAT Earth Sun
« on: August 08, 2008, 01:17:27 PM »
Yes, I'm calling flat Earth fake Earth from now on, because RErs like me know the Earth is round. (I'll only do that in Angry Ranting now for stupid reasons I won't go into.)

Ok, so about the flat Earth sun. It's about 32 kilometers, and goes around the north pole, which is at the center of the Earth? (correct me if I'm wrong)

I have a few questions and comments:

1. The round Earth atmosphere is about 100 km. How thick is the flat Earth atmosphere? Is it the same as RE? Different?

2. How far is the flat Earth sun from Earth?

3. In RE only two billionths of the sun's energy makes it to Earth. How much makes it to Earth in FE?

4. How old is the FE sun?

5. How much energy did it start out with, how much is left, and how much longer will it last.

End of post. Please explain.

NOTE: LOOKING OUT MY WINDOW DOES NOT MAKE THE EARTH FLAT, TOM. NOR DOES DROPPING A PEN IN FRONT OF ME MEAN THAT WE'RE ACCELERATING.

Ok, one thing I love about FErs is that they write all this junk with little or in most cases, no proof to back them up.

Everything on the RE side has been researched and proven. But FErs tend to go "I'll bet NASA just (insert somthing here") Saying "I'll bet" or "probably" doesn't make something right. Proof to back it up does.

So for this post I'm going to ask one simple question.

If the mission to the moon was faked at Hollywood, then where were the men who were supposed to be in the shuttle when it was airborn?

Flat Earth Debate / Earth to be Proven Round Soon
« on: June 24, 2008, 09:24:00 AM »
http://news.cnet.com/Space-the-new-summer-vacation/2100-11397_3-6072973.html

100 million dollars per seat. Wow. Ok I know that most if not all of us don't have that kind of money but before we know it an average rich person will be able to fly into space for a vacation. And I can easily bet my life that my grandchildren will go on a space vacation, only it will be much cheaper by then. If the conspiracy existed, then they wouldn't even bother making these things to send us on space vacations. And also the government wouldn't just kill every rich person who goes into space. I'm sure that all the young people on this forum will either go on a space vacation or know someone who does in their lifetime.

I can now say, with great satisfaction, that the Earth is going to finally be proven round soon enough.

Flat Earth Debate / If Gravity Doesn't Exist...
« on: June 23, 2008, 03:30:27 PM »
Then how does the moon orbit Earth, and how do all the planets orbit the sun? And no, the sun is not 32km or whatever FET thinks.

Flat Earth Debate / Time Zones
« on: June 23, 2008, 12:02:57 PM »
Ok...So FEers believe that the conspiracy started sometime when humans first attempted to go to space, but then realized the "real" shape of the planet. We know that we first went to space in 1969. Or according to FE, "attepmted" to. So that would likely be when the conspiracy started.

Now here is a direct quote from the FAQ:

Quote
Q: "What about time zones?"

A: The sun is a spotlight which shines light on a concentrated area, so not everywhere on Earth will be lit at once. Times zones exist so that everyone's clock will be at 12:00 around the time the sun is approximately directly overhead.

So as you can see this would kind of make sense.

BUT.

If you go here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_zone

It clearly states in 'History' that MOST MAJOR COUNTRIES (the ones who would create the conspiracy) accepted the time zones by 1929, FOURTY YEARS before humans went to space. Since we didn't know how to go to space back then, we wouldn't have made the time zones to support the conspiracy. Don't say that the year wasn't 1929, there are still people who were around back then and still remember it today.

And also, for the sun to concentrate at one area at once, humans would have to literally be able to control the sun. So ya, another major hole in FE.

The Lounge / OMG the Diamond Industry is Ripping Us Off!!!!!!!!!11
« on: June 22, 2008, 03:01:56 PM »
Ok I learned this a while ago so I can't remember all the details.

Anways ask the average person why diamonds are so expensive and you'll ususally get the answer "They're rare." What I learned though is that actually diamonds are so common that they should be worth no higher then TEN DOLLARS. It's just that one company owns most of the diamond bussiness and they can basically make the price whatever they want because of that. Doing so is illegal in America so they put their main incorporation in the UK, where it is legal. That's also why gas prices are going up. (Sort of) All the companies are merging to make higher prices. It's times like this when I wish I lived in the UK and was old enough to sue.

Flat Earth Q&A / Super Smart Boat Building Dinosaures?
« on: June 21, 2008, 06:57:25 PM »
Ok well I've just been told bits and pieces but I heard that FET (or at least Dogplatter) believes that dinosaures could build boats and tools. WTF?! Most had extremely small brains. Infact most were about peanut sized. (Or at least that's what I'm told) Does anyone have any proof they did this?

15
Flat Earth Debate / The Victims of Shuttle Crashes
« on: June 21, 2008, 06:44:04 PM »
Ok so in FET it's impossible to go to space blah blah blah. But while I was looking throught the "Shuttle crashes" post I noticed something. What about the people who have died in shuttle crashes? What happened to them? What about their grieving families? Are they acting? And what about the fact that the dead people haven't been seen since? No one would want to live hidden the rest of their lives just to help out a conspiracy. Now what does FES say for this?

Flat Earth Q&A / What Would It Take?
« on: June 20, 2008, 01:09:16 PM »
What would it take for an FEer to realize that the Earth is round? The only way I can think of is if a really smart person came here and messed with the FE theory. And also, if the Earth was no doubt round, (which it is) what would happen to this place?

17
Flat Earth Q&A / Why the Earth, and Why Do You Think It's Flat?
« on: June 20, 2008, 08:59:04 AM »
Ok when I think about it...Why did you choose the Earth and why did you make it flat?

What I mean is that you guys could of made up anything. You guys could of said that Neptune doesn't exist but that it's a conspiracy. You could of said that 9/11 was a conspiracy. You could of said that Christopher Columbus didn't sail to America, but it was a conspiracy. Once you found the topic you wanted you could of  researched it for years and then made a website and everything. Of course the Earth is round, but why did you guys make your topic a flat one?

18
Two questions:

1. If gravity doesn't exist, what holds the FE atmoshpere in?

2. If heat comes from underground in FE, then how come when clouds cover the sun it gets noticably cooler?

19
Antarctica was tropical at one point.

Round, you're a genius. Because of fossil evidence and contenental shifts, we know Antarctica (or the ice wall, whatever floats your boat) was not in its current position forever, but instead somewhere more tropical. Therefore, how did it end up running so nicely right around the edge of the earth? And this also means the ice wall would not have existed at one point, which means all the water would have probably spilled off by now.
Win for RE?

The entire landmass of the Earth used to be in the center. There was no ice. Or at least not even close to enough to hold the water. So does FE say that continental drift never happened? Well it did. Fossil evidence is enough proof.

Final proof of Earth's roundness?

Flat Earth Debate / Magellan
« on: June 18, 2008, 03:07:49 PM »
Ok...What about the dude who sailed AROUND the Earth some few hundred years ago? When he sailed AROUND the world, people already knew it was round. Here's his Wikipedia article:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferdinand_Magellan

There were no Ice Wall guards back then. (well because the wall doesn't exist) No governments to make money off of a conspiricy. If the Earth was flat he would have just ran into the Ice Wall eventually. But he went in a complete circle. 360 degrees. Whatever you call it. What does FE have to say? Did he "fake" his voyage?

Flat Earth Q&A / Questions and stuff
« on: June 17, 2008, 09:02:49 PM »
Ok first of all this was a nice little quote I found on the Internet:

Quote
Question:  Why is the Earth round?
 helen m vonderheide

Answer:
To a first-order approximation the Earth is round.  This
is due to gravity.  Gravity pulls with equal strength in all
directions; therefore any variations from a spherical
shape will lead to gravitational forces that
bring the shape back into that of a sphere.
 
This is without considering the rotation of the earth,
however.  The rotation of the earth adds centrifugal
effects, which cause the earth to bulge slightly at
its equator and flatten slightly at its poles.
(This is like twirling a rock on the end of a string
and then letting go--the rock flies away from the
twirler.)  Because of these centrifugal effects, the
distance from the center of the earth to the surface
of the earth is about 0.33% shorter at the poles
compared to the equator.
 
-Grant


I would like to see FE's response to it. And by the way, when RE says "discs don't occur in nature" they often forget to mention gravity. Discs don't happen naturally with gravity. Galaxies have nothing to do gravity, so there you have it.

Next question, this one is a HUUUUGE hole in FE. Ok, so according to FE, shuttles have not been in space. What about the people who have died in shuttle crashes? Tom says that nobody went on the shuttles, and that the family either doesn't that their still alive, or that the are pretending to be sad. Ya right. Why doesn't someone prove this? This literally screams "round Earth!"

There's some I need to add later but I keep forgeting them.

Technology, Science & Alt Science / White Light
« on: June 16, 2008, 09:22:32 PM »
I'm bored.

Did you know that when you're looking at light you're actually looking at all colors at once? It's just that our brains are lazy so they just go "screw every color, you see white." So ya, clouds are rainbow, your socks are rainbow, and Fluffy is rainbow.

Ya I just thought that was cool so I posted it.

Flat Earth Debate / How Did the Earth Form Then?
« on: June 14, 2008, 01:37:56 PM »
Ok, I've looked over countless posts, read the stupid FAQ, and still I have yet to see an FE-er demonstrate how the Earth was formed if gravity doesn't exsist. I want to know now. Spammers will be ignored. Thank you.

I want to know how many people here actually believe the Earth is flat. And answer honestly.

Flat Earth Debate / Simple Proof
« on: June 05, 2008, 02:29:37 PM »
The FES is giving up.  ;D

Let's say an RE'er posts something that undeniably proves the Earth's roundness, (which has been done) then an FE either A) Bullies them B) Says stupid things like NO U C) Posts information that looks really scientific and well thought out but for real is made up or D) All of the above.

You guys are failing everyday, multiple times and refuse to accept failure or roundness. Too stubborn is my guess. And don't ask what posts I'm talking about because I know you know.

Well, I see that a lot of times that you guys use Wikipedia for your flat Earth crap. But well, ANYONE can edit Wikipedia. You got 40 seconds? Go edit a Wikipedia article and make it completly wrong! So when you guys link to it, how do I know that YOU didn't just go there and make BS up?

Victory for RE!

P.S. You can't say RE does this because the average RE editor doesn't even know about your exsistance.

Flat Earth Debate / Uhhhh....Ice Wall?
« on: June 03, 2008, 01:49:46 PM »
Ok.

Well.

Anways, now I'm here to talk about the "Ice Wall" and why it doesn't exsist. Ok first of all no one has ever seen it (don't give me fake pictures and that so and so was murdered and that crap). And fisherman and scientists go down to the real (it exsists) continent Antarctica all the time.

Ok now about the Equator. If you say it doesn't exsist well your wrong. The closer you are to the Equator, the warmer it gets. Don't say that's false because the poles are cold and countires near the Equator like Brazil and Eygept are warm. So if there's that line of warmth that goes through the middle then how come that part of the Wall isn't melted away? That would cause the water do fall out.

So now I've found the 10 billionth hole in the FE theory and the FE will fail to prove me wrong.

And also, that's just not how planets form. Ice doens't just surround a planet. And if Earth had that, why don't other planets? We would be able to see the walls through a telescope, but NOPE.

28
NOTE: I HAVE READ THE FAQ

Anyways, let's go back to the death of a star, long ago. If it is a big star (the example star is going to be a big one) it gets bigger and bigger and then BOOM! it explodes. Now of coarse stars are mainly hydrogen gas particles. The pieces of gas float around the universe for a while, possibly millions of years. Eventually, one of the pieces happens to collide with another particle. The particle can be dust, gas, or whatever just something. Now that they there are two, it has double the amount of gravity. Now that piece of dust/gas/whatever floats around more, collecting more gas/dust/whatever. Over time it gathers more and more particles, giving it more and more gravity. HOWEVER, usually when it is forming a piece will just break off, which collects it's own particles. BUT because the original piece is bigger, and because of gravity, it spins around the original. Now the original piece gets so huge and, when something becomes big enough, it creates it's own heat. That becomes our sun. All the broken off pieces become our planets, including the Earth. So as you can see, if gravity didn't exsist, the entire universe would be absolutly nothing.

And also, if you are going to leave some useless/annoying post, just get lost and ruin one of my other posts.
