Flat Earth Debate / Re: Actually, I think it's round.
« on: July 27, 2007, 04:50:34 PM »
Yes, I would believe you. Circumnavigating the earth is perfectly possible on a Flat Earth.

The Flat Earth is shaped like a pancake. North is Hubward, South is Rimward, East is Turnwise, and West is Widdershins.

....Insert BS here....Quote trimmed to save scrolling...

Whenever I have doubts about the shape of the earth I simply walk outside my home, down to the beach, and perform this test. The same result comes up over and over throughout the year under a plethora of different atmospheric conditions.


That's weird...according to my calculations, the water would only be 0.5 meter "higher" between you and those children. Variables used in my calculations: circumference of Earth = 40,075.16km around the equator, radius of Earth = 6378.135km to the equater. 0.5 meter is hardly noticeable in the large scale.

p.s. who in their right scientific minds would use imperial units?

EDIT: circumference of earth was unnecessary.

We get paid so much in America. While people starve in countries we abandon, like Vietnam. We never should've gone, we didn't have the manpower to win.

Nice transition.

No, on a globe Earth there are infinitely many accelerating vectors pointing toward the center of the Earth...You're mixing up the FE acceleration with the RE one.

How is the globe earth able to pull and hold people towards her surface? What is this magical mechanism?

The same magical mechanism that the Cassini probe used to slingshot itself to Saturn.

Wait! Let me get it for ya. You were about to say that space flight's a conspiracy, right?  ::)

I got the impression Tom bought it. Unless he's a troll too. Or has a very dry sense of humour (maybe it's all run off the edges?)

Gravitation can only occur in one direction because the universe is accelerating. An accelerating body can only have a single vector at any given moment.

Ergo, on a globe earth people on the underside of the globe would be swept off of its surface.

LOL...

And you are saying the world cannot be flat because in one instance someone used faulty logic.

No, he's saying that the arguments are retarded.

Well, I asked for an explanation as to why the distance would change, because I still see no reason to assume otherwise... That was fairly clear.

Narcberry presented a pretty clear premise on page one. Perhaps you just need to read through it again very slowly?

Also i am surprised Tom didn't see this. It is pretty obvious if you understand ANY science. Even if you beleive in the flat earth you can see that the round earth theory wouldn't work this way. I  had pretty much assumed Tom was real and Narc a fraud but maybe they are both trolls?.



My theory is that they're the same person. Now, don't feed the troll  8)

What is the absolute humidity of the surrounding air in g/m^3, and what is the chance of shower on the day of the experiment?

Seriously though, if the man asked a simple question, just give him a simple frackin' answer!

Here are some questions for RE'ers. I have several, but will not introduce the next question until the current question has unanymity.

Question 1
Imagine a large rubber ball. You point your finger at the ball, with an initial seperation of 9 cm and move your finger towards the ball at a rate of 1 cm per second. After 9 seconds, what is the distance between the ball and your finger?

I want to see narc's awesome questions, so: 0cm.

Well, I edited my response when I saw his that suggested bouancy, but now that I see his new one, I may as well revert to the old statement, because that is the most pure "i'll pull it out of my butt right now" response i've ever read.

If we were rising in a sea of dark stuff due to bouancy, then the gas giants would float up faster...

But the gas giants have counter-thrust fusion ion drives calibrated to exert constant, perfect force in the exact opposite direction to the universal accelerator to main an equal acceleration relative to the Earth.

Universal accelerator pushes up on the universe, right? This causes acceleration. HOWEVER, it can't push up on something THROUGH the earth, as this would be impossible. This means that the accelerator needs to bypass the earth in order to push up the planets, stars, etc. If the earth were infinite, it can't bypass the earth. Therefore, the earth is not infinite.

You are assuming that the universal accelerator does not permeate the universe as a universal constant, that it originates from a single source below the earth. This is wrong. The Universal Accelerator invokes the Quintessence form of negative energy which fills all of existence. The Quintessence form utilizes tracker behavior which closely tracks the radiation density of an object until there is an equality of matter-radiation.

That's some high-class BS.

WTF? The only way the distance in your absolutely ridiculous experiment would grow is if gravity pushes mass away from the earth. Last time I checked, I was sitting firmly on my chair, not flying at 1g into outer space...

narc is such a comedian.

EDIT: spelling...

Wait...so, what does humans not dying in space have anything to do with conspiracy?

Well, the most hazardous environment has a 0 fatality rate. Seems odd.

Maybe it's the fact that space is the most hazardous environment that's attributing to zero fatality. If I know that jumping off a plane from 4km altitude can be very hazardous to my health, I'd better be damned sure that my parachute will open correctly when I go skydiving. I'll exercise far more caution than I normally would on the ground.

narcberry, do you have any idea why your "proof that god created the universe" thread got locked? I typed up a response but didn't make it in before the lock  :(

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Why Cover Up?
« on: July 17, 2007, 03:42:18 PM »
I'm not sure if that has been asked before but...why would anyone cover up the fact that the Earth is flat? You say Money, which is being poured into the NASA fund. Okay...Why is it not possible for NASA to fake space exploration with Flat Earth being public knowledge? If everyone was taught flat earth since kindergarten, NASA only has to instruct its graphic artists to render fake images depicting a flat Earth, and save billions of dollars that would otherwise go into guarding the ice wall secret over the years.

« on: July 17, 2007, 10:14:03 AM »
The thing I don't get is that...if this site is about scientific and critical thinking, why do people keep bringing up the conspiracy crap? There is no way one could refute a conspiracy theory. There isn't a limit to conspiracies. I can say, "Oh I've personally seen a satellite launch. Heck, I'm an astronaut." Even if I were telling the truth, conspiracy theorists could easily discredit me by saying that I'm part of the conspiracy. Using conspiracy theory in your argument is a cheap shot.

How do they rotate around the earth if the earth isn't spherical?

Skeptics are going to ask: How do you know that the satellites rotate around the Earth?

Why do we care whether Google owns any satellites or not?

People think that the existence of Google Earth proves a spherical Earth.

Okay...let's assume for a moment that the existence of Google Earth would prove a spherical Earth: Why do we care whether Google owns any satellites or not? Google could be getting their satellite images from other companies.

I hope that you could find some value in the site in that it encourages everyone to consider carefully the foundations of their beliefs. I hope that you'll take the time to read the RE Primer that we've developed.

While we're on the RE Primer, do you think it would be possible to host it somewhere that wouldn't give me this:

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Law of Perspective Fallacies

Just for fun. Here is the zoomed in image.



What purple-pink shirt (it looks red), whose legs, where does the floor start? Are you an idiot Tom? You actually think there is anything in this that helps support you. In all honesty the person on the LEFT looks like their legs are a more normal length, with the other two it is much harder to tell the bottom of their legs from the reflection on the floor. Nice try but you fail Tom.

I wonder how Tom could tell where the shirt ends with the backpack on. Also, let's assume his law of perspective is true, the "woman" in "pink shirt" would appear to have a right leg that's ~1/2 the length of her left leg. How would you explain that, Tom?

Notice how the left hand woman in pink (the one with the backpack) has abnormally short legs compared to the rest of her body.

LOL nice one. I'm beginning to see what this site about now. I can't even see a person in pink, let alone someone carrying a backpack.
