Hah, my literacy is fine. I'm probably the most literate person here. I'm just a lazy bastard who doesnt like to think alot. This thread is getting redundant though.

and using this same logic it is easy to see that the increase in global temperatures since the 1800s is caused by the decline in the numbers of pirates.

How is it the same logic?  The former is the construction and evaluation of a mathematical expression, whereas the latter is a claim about causation.  How do you propose to relate them?

Speak english. I cant understand that. Using "former" and "latter" makes your statements ambiguous.

So, what do you believe? Flat or Round?

and you cant say for 100% sure that radio waves wouldnt act different on a flat earth, simply because you dont have a flat earth to test radio waves on.

yes, round earth = round waves... in a sort. They are broadcast in every direction.

This is quite possibly the dumbest thing I have heard all day.  The waves may be broadcast in every direction, but this doesn't make them round, they are still linear.

I never said they werent linear, i was simply at a loss of words for an explination. radio waves are emited and the move in every direction, like an enlarging bubble. thats what i meant by "round".

i assume that if the earth were flat then instead of the "bubble" it would be like a disc.

it was an attempt to confuse. it's not like anyone CAN know if radio waves would act like that on a flat planet, since there isnt a flat planet to use to test it on.

but why debate it? most of the FE'ers would be stupid enough to believe it!

Then why are you part of the flat/non flat debate?

psouza4, if satellites (like echostar) worked like solar powered helicopters then the FE Theory and Satellites could co-exist.

Do FE's have reason to believe they do (satellites working similarly to solar-powered helicopters)?  Other than its relevant possibility?  (this again goes back to the "it's possible that it's magic" perspective, but I'm trying to debate based on science, which is supported by data -- so does any exist?)

i dunno i was just thinkin of any way a satellite could work under FE's conditions.

if the earth is flat then radio waves would be too, right?

Let's see...Flat earth = flat radio waves?  The very nature of EM radiation prevents them from being 2D.  So does this mean round earth = round waves?

Then since is 99x broadcast from a 150 foot tall (approx.) antenna, i shouldnt be able to recieve the signal, when i'm about 141 feet below where it is broadcast from.

'Then since is 99x' is nonsensical.  What is 99x? Are you saying that the radar won't reach you because you are 141 ft below the dish at the base of it or 500 miles away?

I'm on a higher level of thinking than you are

Yea, I severely doubt that.

yes, round earth = round waves... in a sort. They are broadcast in every direction.

"Are you saying that the radar won't reach you because you are 141 ft below the dish at the base of it or 500 miles away?"
it's obvious you havent googled 99x.

"Yea, I severely doubt that."
Doubt all you want, but you're always gonna be the idiot who thinks the earth is flat.

The no-satellite theory is one of the most flawed, however and is typically explained by FE'ers that functions satellites are typically responsible for are instead replaced with radio towers on the Earth's surface.  Therefore, FE'ers believe that "satellite images" (of the Earth) must all be fake.

No, FE's believe satellites are faked because for a satellite to be in orbit you have to have gravity, which FE's say the earth doesn't produce. And if satellites don't exist, than the functions of satellites have to be from another source.

Or, satellites operate like electric helicopers....

How about using your thinker to put together a coherent statement.

What's incoherent about my statement? Maybe you just can't understand what i'm saying simply because I'm on a higher level of thinking than you are  8-)

*flat waves!*

the wall is 150 feet *tall*
the radar is traveling 100's of miles *long*

length and height are two very different things.

Elaborate on the 150 foot tall obstructions that protude from the middle of the ocean blocking out radar.  Not to mention most things on the ground exist below most radar towers, where said radar waves come from.  If we can track the movement of ice storms over antarctica we should be able to see the giant ass wall of ice.

Do you think radar is unidirectional?  It is not a tight beam, there is some scatter.  This is reflected back to the reciever from the obstructions on the ground.  This is why aircraft fly low to the ground when they are evading radar.  The operators can't pick them out of the energy reflected back by surface objects.

you dont know much about radar do you?

i'll try something else.

Start with point A and point B at a distance d to the north. A makes an angle theta with the sun, and B makes an angle phi. The angle between the hypotenuse of A and the hypotenuse of B is phi - theta. By trigonometric Law of Sines, you should be able to compute the hypotenuses (hypoteni?) of both A and B. And from there, by basic trig, you can compute how high up Mercury's chariot is. If the assumption that the Earth is flat is correct, then you should be able to take another point C still further north of B and run the numbers and come up with the same distance. If the numbers don't add up, then the hypothesis is flawed.

Of course.

I think, if someone performed this experiment, it would prove the sun is 3000 miles above the surface of the flat earth.

Do you have some reason to believe otherwise?

no, the expirament yeilds this result:

The sun is close to 93,000,000 miles away from the earth at any given time. That distance varies though, since Earth orbits the Sun in an eliptical  pattern.

Actually, I'll correct myself. You can have 1 side and 2 angles, you would have to "cut the earth in half" (in your head. not literally.) then you would have a side.

I stand by the rest of my statements!

whats next, Ktulu is real? lol

100% correct. Using basic trig you would easily see the sun is 3000 miles above the surface of the flat earth.

Could you please show me this math?

If the earth was flat you would be able to, since you have 2 angles and 1 side. but with the real earth (or atleast the one I live on), you have 2 angles and no side.

Tell me this also, why doesnt radar work as far as the "Big Ice Wall"? From what I can tell, radar would eventually recieve its own beacon signal since it would bounce off of this dense ice wall. If you want to believe in something so stupid then by all means, go for it. Hell, the Bible even says the earth is a sphere. So go ahead and call governments liars, and scientists liars, but dont call god a liar.
