Philosophy, Religion & Society / Dem Watch 2020
« on: December 04, 2019, 12:33:53 AM »
Each week we should bet on the next Dem to drop culminating in the foreshadowing of the DNC Nom.

Betting begins, who is the next to drop out? Each cycle is 7 days, starting with today, oddly, Tuesday. Double points for predicting a 2-fer in the week cycle. We are now in week 1. Put your bet in brackets, e.g., [Week 1 - Bennet] Vitriolic reason: Who? Something like that.

Vitriolic reasons why your pick is doomed is very much appreciated and rewarded.



My first pick:

[Week 1 - Booker] Money. Raising nothing, needs to preserve at least a minimal standing as Junior Senator to remain a senator.

I literally stumbled upon this and really haven't had a chance to research its veracity, but thought it would be of interest.

From the website (https://www.onemoreorbit.com/):

"One More Orbit is a multinational attempt to break the world record for the fastest circumnavigation of the earth via both poles, in a Qatar Executive Gulfstream G650ER ultra long-range business jet.
The record is being attempted during the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Apollo 11 moon landing, as a tribute to the past, present, and future of space exploration.
The team will launch the record attempt from, and return for the finish to, Space Florida's Launch and Landing Facility (the former Shuttle Landing Facility) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, from where Apollo 11 launched their historic mission 50 years ago. The mission will start at 09:32 EDT – the same time as Apollo 11.
The speed record will be certified by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) and GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™."

You can apparently watch their flight live:

Didn't know where to put this. Seems like a chat between MCToon and Pete is happening today if anyone is interested.

Pete and I had a nice chat for my Coffee with a Flat Earther series on YouTube.  The video is premiering Thursday, March 21 8:00pm GMT or 3:00pm CST.

You can watch live and participate in the live chat or watch any time later.


Thanks for the cordial chat, Pete.

According to the wiki and elsewhere, FET states that the Sun and Moon are approximately 3000 miles away and 32 miles in diameter.

Why is it that the distances and diameters of the planets have not been calculated at all, let alone with such precision, by FET?

This is kinda cool, regardless of one's earth view.

Flat Earth Debate / I'm getting all Meta...

Is this the Crux of the Biscuit?

From the conclusion of Rowbotham’s ENAG:

'Wherever doubt shall exist as to the. sufficiency of the phenomenal explanations offered, the mind must at once fall back upon the grand reserved proposition that water is horizontal, and, therefore, any want of satisfaction in explaining phenomena must be met by further efforts in that direction, and not by the mentally suicidal process of denouncing a proved foundation."
