The Lounge / Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki
« on: May 10, 2014, 08:37:26 AM »
It seems that scepti does not believe the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki happened. I am curious to know how many FE'er believe the same thing. Did it happen?

I think the FE'ers don't realize how much GPS is used in this world. They think it is on their iPhone, handheld and in their cars as a toy. I'm curious to know if the FE'ers can tell me what countries does not use GPS. There are lots of agencies in the world that needs GPS for their jobs. Can you name a few? I don't think the FE'ers realize the enormity of this system. Come on FE'ers show us how you are up to date with this world.

Flat Earth General / Queen Mary2 uses many satellites.
« on: May 04, 2014, 01:43:03 PM »
The Queen Mary2 uses many satellites during the Atlantic crossing. It uses GPS for navigation, Satphone for phone communication, Sat internet to supply internet to the passengers, and weather satellites for real time weather forecast. I know some of the FE'ers will say they could use Stratellite but that does not come close to cover the whole Atlantic ocean and to work in any way.

GPS has elevation(altitude) BECAUSE it has satellites. A flat earth GPS would have to be land base as claimed. It is not possible give elevation on a GPS system if everything is flat.

I am curious to know the opinion. The debate of it can be done later.

Flat Earth General / North Korea secrets exposed by satellites
« on: April 24, 2014, 04:16:46 AM »
North Korea can't hide their military secrets any more because of satellites. Anyone can go to Google earth and see the whole country down to cars traveling in the cities. Of course street view will not be possible.North Korea secretes exposed by satellites

Flat Earth Q&A / All the sides of the moon should be seen.
« on: April 21, 2014, 04:26:28 AM »
If the moon is as close as claimed (2300 miles) and the sun is going around the moon 28 times in a month then all of the moon's top, bottom and back should be seen. The 2300 miles is the same distance from New york to Las Vegas.

In the past 100 years we have seen many advances in technology. Look at the advancement in cars, trucks, trains, airlines, ships, computers, cameras, medicine and a long list of things. The FE'ers simply stop at space technology. Forget the idea of images or videos of earth or living in space and look at why technology has a limit. What is the big issue with space technology?

Flat Earth General / Why do FE'ers believe conspiracy theories.
« on: April 16, 2014, 02:52:44 PM »
"There are number of factors, but probably one of the most important ones in this instance is that, paradoxically, it gives people a sense of control. People hate randomness, they dread the sort of random occurrences that can destroy their lives, so as a mechanism against that dread, it turns out that itís much easier to believe in a conspiracy. Then you have someone to blame, itís not just randomness. If you reject evidence, or reinterpret the evidence to be confirmation of your theory, or you ignore mountains of evidence to focus on just one thing, youíre probably a conspiracy theorist. We call that a self-sealing nature of reasoning."
Any thoughts on this?

Flat Earth Q&A / The creation of the flat earth.
« on: April 14, 2014, 05:41:27 PM »
To make it simple most of RE'ers knows that the stars and planets are created from leftover matter and gasses ofter stars explode at their end of life.  It is an cycle that has being going on for billions of year. This has been accepted for a very long time. Now the same question come to mind to how did the flat earth get created. Has it always existed? Not likely. God maybe? I hope some FE'ers can give me a logical explanation. If you don't say do.

Flat Earth General / Denpressure fails again.
« on: April 05, 2014, 08:26:29 AM »
Here is scepti famous words about denpressure:"Nothing on this Earth weighs anything unless it's under pressure. No pressure, no weight, it's that simple. No need for gravity or the rest of it."

I challenged him on that. He admitted that 1/2 the air pressure would be equal to 1/2 the weight. 1/100 the pressure = 1/100 the weight. I propose that I would put a 10 pound lead ball at the end of a spring scale. It would indicated 10 pounds. He agreed. Then I would put the same scale and lead ball in a vacuum chamber. He indicated it probably would not change the indication on the scale. The conclusion is that air pressure did not make the lead ball weight less as he predicted. So his denpressure failed to prove that it replaces UA or gravity. So denpressure busted.

12
Most RE'ers have no problem evaluation pictures or videos of different information as having value or creditability. Now the FE'ers seem to have a strong conspiracy attitude or all pictures are videos are fake or Photoshopped. I will not mention names but some will deny "ALL" pictures or videos. To these people at what point are they reasonable or just denialists. Here is a stating point and my question:"Scepti did the July 7 2005 London Bombing happen".

Flat Earth Q&A / Will air roll off the flat earth.
« on: March 28, 2014, 12:42:47 PM »
If you pour water on a table it will roll off the edge. The FE is acceleration at 1 G so why does the air from the ground to at very height altitude (100,000 feet or more ) not roll off the edge of the FE?

14
Flat Earth Debate / Airplanes can't fly in the FE world with UA.
« on: March 28, 2014, 06:06:25 AM »
It was described in another tread that if is a ball was thrown up the FE will catch to it. Sound reasonable but that would not apply to and airplane. As the FE would raise up it will hit it. Now it was said that the rising air with the FE will create lift but that will only happen if the airplane is FALLING. The airplane can't fly with UA.

Flat Earth Q&A / Sun and moon falling on the FE.
« on: March 27, 2014, 12:47:26 PM »
If the FE is accelerating at 1 g why does the sun and moon not fall on the earth. What magical force is keeping them up there in a specific distance and so called circular pattern?

Flat Earth General / Moon landing may be a hoax.
« on: March 25, 2014, 05:50:15 AM »
This guy has some compelling ideas that the moon landing was a hoax.

Flat Earth Q&A / North star (Polaris) on the Flat Earth.
« on: March 24, 2014, 09:02:00 AM »
The north star (Polaris) is located above the north pole. Where is it on the FE model and can you see it from all over the flat earth?

Suggestions & Concerns / My concerns
« on: March 24, 2014, 06:54:16 AM »
Memberating is also against the rules.  Let the moderators do their job.  Stop trying to be a vigilante.
I have to problem with that but there have been lots of broken rules by all including moderators.

Flat Earth General / How FE'ers view scientist.
« on: March 22, 2014, 02:20:38 PM »
I am curious khow FE'ers opinion of scientist. Do you see them all working for government or military. Are your views of them negative? Are they professionals? Do they have a passion in the research they do.

I found the non stop flight from Cape town to Sydney Australia.http://www.travelmath.com/flying-time/from/Sydney,+Australia/to/Cape+Town,+South+Africa
The travel time is about 14 hours 13 minutes. Removing 30 minutes for take off and landing it make for flying time of 13 hours 43 minutes or about 13.75 hours. As indicated the flight speed is 500 mph. If you take 500 times 13.75 it gives 6875 miles. I measure the distance from Google earth and it came to 6850 miles. As far as I am concert that is the right and accurate distance. Show me on the FE map the distance of 6850 from "Cape town to Sydney Australia". If You can't then you have serious thinking to do about your flat earth.

Flat Earth Q&A / Moon eclipse can't exist on the FE model.
« on: March 20, 2014, 04:02:22 AM »
Let the FE'ers explain the moon eclipse on their model. See the video to what it is.

Flat Earth Debate / Denpressure finally defined!
« on: March 18, 2014, 07:11:07 AM »
Yes! Yes! here it is defined by scepti:
Denpressure: The force of any dense object against atmospheric pressure that displaces it's own mass against that of the atmosphere it finds itself in.
He said a "FORCE".  Magnetism and electric are know fields. Of course the third force is GRAVITY but for now we will not use it. Common sense tell me if you remove the atmosphere pressure all you have left is the "FORCE". I ask for a name but did not get one. He called it "mo joe" if i wanted. He could not define me what is this "FORCE"
We all want to know.

Lets face it, if the world is flat you must be able to map it. How hard could it be. If you want to sail from south Africa to Melbourne Australia you must have an idea how far it is so you can make the trip safely. Does anybody of the FE'ers can give me a accurate number? In the round world I can find that out in a few minutes. I suspect the FE'ers will ignore this request. That is a easy cop out.

24
I believe it is accepted by the FE'ers that all the planets are not flat. You can see that in a telescope. You can see them rotate. The FE'ers think the earth is the only planet that is flat. How did the become flat and why?

Flat Earth General / scepti thinks the V2 rocket did not exist.
« on: March 16, 2014, 11:12:18 AM »
Here is sceptic comment about viewing the following videos:

" class="bbc_link" target="_blank">

"I hope you are winding me up with this shower of absolute crap.
And you think they sent this piece of garbage to targets. Come on man, you surely aren't this naive."

Now I am sure that there are people on this site from England that their fathers and grandfathers that can attest to this event.

Flat Earth Q&A / Do you believe ICBM missiles exist?
« on: March 15, 2014, 04:24:26 AM »
ICBM means intercontinental ballistic missile. We all know the Russians and USA have them. If you remember the cold war it was a power of military strength without fighting. Do you think all of these missiles exist?

27
Flat Earth General / Where do you go to increase your knowledge?
« on: March 14, 2014, 02:36:47 PM »
There are different ways we collect information to increase your knowledge. It can be school, coffee shop ,books, newspapers, TV, Internet, library or all of the above? I see here smart and stupid question but when it comes to specific details there must be a credible place for everybody. To sum it up where do FE'ers get their knowledge.

Flat Earth General / Are FE'ers linear or nonlinear thinkers?
« on: March 14, 2014, 07:55:57 AM »
Here is the difference.
Definition of Linear Thinking

    Essentially, linear thinking is to look at something from one point of view. If a person practices linear thinking, she sticks to a straight line of thought, meaning she takes information from one situation and applies it to similar situations. Another definition of linear thinking includes responding to one stimuli before responding to the next. Linear thinkers are thought to be logical and orderly, excelling at subjects like math and science.

Definition of Nonlinear Thinking

    The term "nonlinear" means that something is not in a straight line, and this concept can be applied to a person's method of thought. A person who thinks nonlinearly often makes connections among unrelated concepts. A nonlinear thinker will jump from idea to idea, unlike a logical, linear thinker. Nonlinear thinkers usually perform well in the arts and tend to be more abstract.

Flat Earth General / Difference of 0 G on earth and on the ISS?
« on: March 10, 2014, 05:20:59 AM »
Look at the difference.

In the vomit comet ( 0G ) there is always a tiny bit of gravity:

People are not bouncing around because there is no gravity.
