Flat Earth Debate / International Linear Collider and the round earth
« on: January 11, 2012, 04:37:50 PM »
I am sure that most people here knows what is a particle accelerator.  The most famous particle accelerator today is the  LHC.

Now, there is another collider being built, it is called International Linear Collider. The most interesting aspect of this collider is that they will accommodate its tunnel to the curvature of the earth.

Can FE theory, mathematics and/or physics, able to disprove their calculations?

What will happens if the ILC actually works? What happens if by taking the curvature of earth into account they can make a better collider?

Flat Earth Debate / sniper shot
« on: January 11, 2012, 09:34:11 AM »
Very long distance sniper shots requires a lot of calculations from a variety of variables.
In the book The Way of the Sniper the navy sniper who tells the story says this:

“Each rifle a sniper uses has unique characteristics that are compounded by the ammunition and many, many exterior factors. There is wind. There is humidity. There is the spin of the Earth. There is even the fact that as a rifle is fired, its barrel heats up, the metal contracts, and the bullets are propelled faster.”

This is phenomena is called  Coriolis effect. Any object moving horizontally on or near the earth’s surface is deflected slightly off course due to the spinning of the planet beneath it.

Of course I am not expecting that FE believers will accept this as proof of a round earth.

But my question is, if the world is flat, and the snipers do consider the Coriolis Effect in their calculations. They are trained to do so.
How can they hit the target? If earth has no rotation and they are taking in consideration the roundness of earth and its spinning, they should always miss long shots.

Why they don't miss those shots? Why taking in consideration the Coriolis Effect helps them?

Flat Earth General / video evidence of round earth
« on: January 10, 2012, 10:21:40 PM »
I know that FE consider that all agency connected to any government is part of a conspiracy to make us believe that the earth is round. I don't really know what they have to gain from this, but this isn't the point.

Check this video. It is a group of professionals engineers, and some other people with different expertise,  decided to sent their own rocket to the space.

Though the rocket didn't get into orbit, it did get high enough to show the curvature of earth.

Here is their full summary report,  it is VERY detailed, http://ddeville.com/images/Rocket/Qu8k%20-%20The%20Story%20-%20Final.pdf

So we have video evidence from a experiment that had nothing to do with NASA or any governmental agency.

My question is, can FE consider this as evidence of round earth? And if not, why not?

Flat Earth Q&A / gravity and time relation
« on: January 10, 2012, 09:25:14 AM »
RE scientists are well aware of the relation between time and gravity.

We know that the time goes by faster the higher you are. This is proven fact since many many scientists and universities have done this experiment.
We also know that GPS satellites (or airplanes if you don't believe in satellites) have to  constantly adjust their clocks in order to match the clocks on the surface. because at higher places the time goes by slightly faster.

I was wondering how the FE theories would explain this phenomena ?
