Flat Earth Debate / Re: One of Toms posts, and the 100 proofs thing
« on: November 28, 2008, 06:34:23 AM »
... you can't just claim something and "assume true" without any further evidence...

Indeed. FET fails miserably on that account.

I believe Tom is implying that all scenes "filmed in space" could just as well be created completely by CGI.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: wind
« on: November 10, 2008, 03:46:18 AM »
Wind is part of the conspiracy. Those so-called wind power generators in the countryside are in fact large fans that create the wind. By spreading the ridiculous notion that a spinning propeller could create energy, the conspiracy has found a clever way to hide their "wind generators" in plain sight. Haven't you noticed how they always seem to be pointing in the direction the wind is blowing? That is because they are causing the wind! It's so obvious, but people refuse to see it because they blindly accept what they are told by the evil government.


PS: For those who don't get it - </sarcasm>.

I wonder if Rick is even aware that he's basically the subject of a huge internet joke.

It is observed consistently, even through telescopes

Proof?

There are numerous images on the internet. Some people have even done their own experiments and posted images on this forum. In one thread you yourself even declared the sinking ship effect that was clearly visible through a telescope as "proof" of bendy light. Why do you feign ignorance? You yourself have acknowledged the existence of the effect through a telescope.

EDIT: While we're on the subject, how about some "proof" that ships sinking over the horizon can be fully restored through a telescope?

The only evidence we need to conclude that the Earth is round is the sinking ship effect. It is observed consistently, even through telescopes - therefore it is not an illusion of perspective. If you try to explain it with bendy light, you are invalidating the "observational evidence" for flat Earth because you are admitting that the Earth is observably round.

Let me put it this way: </FET>

Even through a powerful telescope, ships can clearly be seen to "sink" below the horizon.

Uh oh. Tom is going into copy & paste mode again. ([1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6], [7])

As has been discussed before, the "vanishing point due to human limitation" is total bollocks, because when looking through binoculars or a telescope, ships can still be seen to sink below the horizon.

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Mercury and Venus
« on: October 29, 2008, 05:51:44 AM »
The interaction of the Sun and Moon's magnetic fields at close range causes them to repel one another.

I didn't realize that the moon had a magnetic field.  Do you have any verifiable evidence to support that claim? 

It seems that magnetic repulsion should affect the sun's and/or moon's orbit as well.  Any thoughts as to why this is not observed?

Because it's complete cow dung?

So if bendy light is merely a derivative theory, what observational basis does that theory have? Obviously it can't be "the Earth looks flat", because bendy light negates that observation. It would appear that your new derivative theory is entirely beyond human experience. I guess the new basis for Bendy Light FET is "We'd like to believe that the Earth is flat."

Before you continue to use my own logic to disprove FET, let's change the subject shall we?

Fixed that for you.

Sorry, but I don't give much of a shit about SR, GR or anything else at the moment. The topic at hand is FET, since we are in the FET forums after all. I've provided a logical argument as to why bendy light is incompatible with FET. You seem unable or unwilling to refute it.

On the topic of the electromagnetic accelerator, it's all well and good as a possible explanation for bendy light... but that doesn't change the fact that bendy light itself is inconsistent with the very foundations of FET.

I'll try to put it as simply as possible:

- It is possible to observe the roundness of Earth. (sinking ship effect)
- FET explains observations of roundness with bendy light.
- Bendy light also nullifies observations of flatness.
- FET is based on the observation of a flat Earth.
- Therefore bendy light invalidates FET.

I believe we can consider FET to have been successfully disproved by its own advocates. Bravo!

No, bendy light is a derivative of the original FET. We do not yet know which is correct. I saw the need for a modification to FET, and came up with the bendy light hypothesis. It may be wrong, but you can't say that the scientists who came up with the idea of the luminiferous aether disproved the existence of light.

So if bendy light is merely a derivative theory, what observational basis does that theory have? Obviously it can't be "the Earth looks flat", because bendy light negates that observation. It would appear that your new derivative theory is entirely beyond human experience. I guess the new basis for Bendy Light FET is "We'd like to believe that the Earth is flat."

Considering that a shuttle is visible right up to (and possibly beyond) LEO, there's no doubt that it goes up and stays up there. You could probably send it down during the the middle of the day or night, but you'll have the get it back up at most about 40 minutes after you took it down lest various shuttle spotters notice it's missing. There may be various times when you'll have to keep it up anyway as it may be visible during the day or night.

NASA projects holograms into the atmoplane. They don't need to be very high resolution; they just need to be sufficient to keep people from wondering where the shuttle went.

Wow, that ranks right up there with the mysterious but conveniently placed sky mirrors, gleefully helpful boat-pushing fish, oh and let's not forget the magical-omnidirectional-supersonic wind currents. FET is a fucking merry-go-round of lulz.

</sarcasm>

Seriously, if NASA is projecting holograms into the sky, they would need a huge worldwide network of "holographic projectors" to cover all visible satellites, shuttles, the ISS etc. simultaneously. Before you ask: no, I'm pretty sure there are no sky-hologram projectors in my neighborhood.

What are pings anyway?

Your ping is generally the time it takes for a packet (or message) from your computer to reach a server (or another computer) and get back again. Low ping = faster = better.

« on: October 22, 2008, 01:52:10 AM »
Bendy light. You assume that earth is flat and therefore come up with BL as a solution. OK, that is a theory, but in science you need to be able to test and retest to validate a theory. Right now you appear to be saying here is a theory of bendy light which proves flat earth can work. We can prove the theory because the Earth is flat! Running round in circles there mate.
Circular logic, quite ironically.

What is also ironic is the way you mention the dark ages and the way they believed in witches. You know what else they believed in the dark ages? That the world was flat.

What would be hilarious is to take one of these morons on a trip on a space shuttle and watch them furrow their brows as they finally realise that the world is round. Actually, all you'd need to do is put them on a sailing ship and travel in a straight line long enough before they'd get to the same place. And no-one has made mention of being in a plane and _seeing_ the curvature of the earth with their own eyes. Or are planes part of the NASA god conspiracy as well.

Jesus christ, I can't believe there are people still this stupid in the civilised world :/


Hint: there aren't.  ;)
