The Lounge / Things in movies that should have happened bt didn't
« on: April 12, 2015, 10:34:38 PM »
This thread is about things in movies, that should have happened, and if you really think about it would have ruined the movie had it actually happened.

For example, I was watching Batman Begins today.  Near the end when they have the microwave emitter in the train causing all the water in the pipelines to vaporize.  Well, what about all the water in the people?  All those people should have been cooked.  Batman and Ra's al Ghul too.  Makes no sense why that didn't happen but if it had, would have ruined the movie.

Flat Earth Q&A / Further Denprssure Questions
« on: November 28, 2014, 03:23:13 PM »
This is to try and understand Scepti's denpressure a bit more.  Please try to refrain from any debating since we have plenty of other threads about that.  I wan't to get some solid answers to questions that still remain. 

First, I want to make sure that I understand how denpressure works.

This is my understanding of it.  Please correct me if I am wrong.

The mass of the air above us pushes us down.  Correct?

If I lift up a rock, it compresses the air above it.  Correct?

When I let go of the rock, the compressed mass of the air above it pushes it back to the ground right?

If this is the case, why does it only work in the vertical direction?  Why not in the horizontal directions?

If I throw the rock to the right, why doesn't it get pushed back to the left and land at my feet?

There is a mass of air to the right of me.  Why does the rock continue to travel right while it is falling?

Flat Earth Debate / Small Swells Covering Large Ships
« on: August 09, 2014, 07:23:35 AM »
OK, this was brought up in the Q&A board.  I would like Jroa to explain to me who this is possible.  Since when asked in the Q&A, he skirted it by saying that it was not in the Debate board.

When a ship is far away, it appears to be very small.  Your thumb could cover it up.  Why not a swell that is shorter than your eyes?

Also, never mind.  This is not the debate forum.  Please, limit your posts to FE questions and answers.  Thanks.

So tell me Jroa, or show me if you want, how a swell that is lower than eye level, say a 5 foot swell, can block a 30 foot tall boat if my eye level is at say, 10 feet?

Flat Earth Debate / Discussion: The Flat Earth and Religion
« on: March 08, 2014, 11:23:32 AM »
http://theflatearthsociety.net/religion.html

It can be shown that the Flat Earth worldview is consistent with the vast majority of religious texts and worldviews.
Babylonian
He named the four quarters of the world, mankind he created
Enuma Elish, The Epic of Creation

Christian, Islamic, and Abrahamic Religions

Selections from Old Testament:

Isaiah 40:22:
He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.
A spheroid doesn't look like a circle from a distance?
Isaiah 11:12
And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
Four corners is a common saying referring to the four directions of a compass.  North, South, East, and West. Also, as stated in the previous example, it is a circle.  How does a circle have corners?
Psalms 24:2
For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
what does this have to say about flatness?
Proverbs 8:27
When he established the heavens, I was there; when he drew a circle on the face of the deep,
Discussed prior

Proverbs 30:4
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
does earth refer to land masses or the world that we live on?

I Samuel 2: 8, Job 9:6
The pillars of the earth are jehovah’s and he hath set the world upon them
Doesn't mention anything about shape

Job 38:6
Whereupon are the foundations made to sink, or who laid the corner-stone thereof
What does this have to do with the world?

Job 26:7
He stretcheth out the North over the empty place, and hangeth the Earth upon nothing
Describes a world hanging in space.  Doesn't mention anything about shape.

Job 26:10
He hath described a circumference upon the face of the waters, unto the boundary of light with darkness

Job 26:7
He spreadeth out the North over the desolate place and supporteth the Earth upon fastenings
Describes a world hanging on fasteners.  Nothing about shape here

Zechariah 12:1 Isaiah 11:22
Stetcheth out the Heavens as a curtain and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in
So you can't stretch Heavens over a spheroid?
Exodus 20:4, Deuteronomy  5:8
the waters under the earth
Yes there are waters under ground

Selections from New Testament:

Romans 10:18
Their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the end of the world
Just describing that the disciples and new Christians were going around spreading the Word

Daniel 4:10-11.
... a tree of great height at the centre of the earth...reaching with its top to the sky and visible to the earth's farthest bounds.

Matthew 4:8:
Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world

Luke 4:5:
And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
Where is this mountain?  You realise that at that time, they knew not of many of the land masses of the world right?
Revelations 7:1
And after these things I saw four angels standing on four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
See response above about the directions of a compass

Just dealt with the Judeo Christian views here.  Taking snippets of scripture to show a point is not conclusive to what is being said.  None of these shows anything about the shape of the World.
