Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Stellar Parallex
« on: April 24, 2010, 01:01:25 PM »
I do not see a full explanation for stellar parallex

Parallax, please.  It's spelled parallax.  Perhaps the spelling error hindered your search?  And even if the stars varied their distance from Earth mother, why would that make her round?

Wow, resort to picking apart someone's text instead of trying to help them understand.  Awesome.

If the stars were varied in their distances it wouldn't necessarily mean the Earth was round or flat.  He is merely pointing out that the motion of stars can be observed and from this their distances have been calculated.  Want a source?  I suggest you read Pathways to Astronomy.  It's a good college level book that you can probably get on amazon pretty cheap now.

Why shouldn't I be able to cite a book?  You people use ENaG all the time.

I came here to lead, not read.  ;D

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Volcano in Iceland proves Earth is flat.

Explain how this proves the earth is flat,doesn't make sense to me.

If the earth was round, the planes could just fly in the opposite direction and end up at their original destination.
It sounds crazy because it is.  That's RE for you.

What happened in Europe after Eyjafjallajökull erupted?  Did the reaction match a spherical planet theory and simply route planes around the eruption?  No, they were grounded.  There is no way around the volcanic ash because the Earth is flat.

In finite universe, it = 0. Eventually.
Please excuse my hypergraphy, but 1/2 + just positive stuff > 0.
Clearly my missive has it's faults in a deeper explanation?

I voted I hate RE'ers but that was kind of a hateful poll.  The respect isn't there, but neither is the hate.  RE people are just confused, that's all.

That's what I'm saying.  How can I respect someone who's as easily led as your typical REer?  But hate?  Hey, some of my best friends are REers.

Everyone does realize that Global Warming doesn't necessarily mean all the glaciers and polar icecaps will melt, right?
Of course not!  The atmosphere is a zero sum game, and planar warming will only make the make path of the metallic sun warmer, and making the ice wall and central pole colder.  The ice will grow, and eventually threaten baby harp seals and Santa Claus.  :'(

Flat Earth General / Re: How many of you have physics degrees?
« on: March 17, 2010, 07:21:52 PM »
A piece of paper is assurance of nothing. Plenty of college graduates know less than people without college degrees.

Most generalizations are false, including this one.
Is that really a generalization?  He tells us the scope of applicability.  Plenty of college graduates.  Not all.  Thats all we need to prove the system is worth ignoring. 

I like this conversation.  It's obtuse without being genial.
"Plenty" sounds like a pretty general (vague/relative) term to me.

Plenty implies more than required, which is as precise as is needed.

The entire USA?  :o What, was the Death Star hovering over it or something?!
Are you teasing the RE'ers?  They really hate it when we bring up Sci Fi, debunking every image, diagram, or ironclad argument.  *poof* Sci Fi wins.

Flat Earth General / Re: Basic question, not covered in FAQ
« on: March 16, 2010, 09:55:49 PM »
This question has been on my mind for a while and it was not covered in the FAQ section. Without choosing any side in this discussion, I'd like to invite all FE believers to look at the discussion from the RE point of view for a moment.. that is: from the point of view of someone that is trying to provide evidence.

Now; from looking into this site for a while it is clear to me that, among other things, photographs, maps, and eye-witnesses do not qualify as valid forms of evidence to the FE section.
The RE section however has a tendency to qualify scientific data as evidence



My question to the FE believers is:

"What would qualify as a valid form of evidence to convince you of a RE world image?"

I think if God came down and told me the earth was round, that would do it.
An angel or talking animals might also convince me.
I'm fairly dismissive of coffee stains and strangers.

« on: March 16, 2010, 09:49:46 PM »
The image is ridiculously trying to convince us that the earth is round by having a stupendously tall giant stabbed in the head with a 'horizion' line, an 'astronomical' line and a tree hat.

What would a laser be without a framework to support photons?  Denial of the aether is pure piffle.

Another win for FE!

Your profile picture and general attitude kind of prove you're not a real FE'er.
What is this kind of you speak of, oh Xenu the most neutral observer?  It looks like you put your best foot forward to me.

Just reading around you can tell pretty quickly who has a science degree. I think we have a couple of science and engineering students, based on posts. A significant number more have a subscription to a magazine that has the odd science article.
You are very good at filling in missing information with guesses.  I call this thought spackle.  It completes the incompletable sentence, and fulfills man's desire to understand the world around him.  Kudos.

Err, yes.

It does look like a balloon.  :P

Vandebergh is a known NASA shill. NASA posts his images on their website to "prove" their ISS progress.

He is a known shill because you started a bogus thread where you argued that he was, but you got NO WHERE.

Leave now.

Flat Earth General / Re: How many of you have physics degrees?
« on: March 12, 2010, 11:44:34 PM »
Okay a few questions:

1. What degree in physics (or perhaps another, any physical science, such as chemistry, I might go as far as biology.) do you have or are currently obtaining?

2. What university do you attend or have you attended?

3. What professors taught/teach you?

4. (For physics, mainly) What lab experiments caused you to believe the Earth is flat?


I'm really looking forward to those who have any degrees in optics or aerospace.
1) Got a BA in Applied Math and Computer Science.  Took college physics classes Mechanics and Thermodynamics, but didn't like thermo and quit after that.
2) University of California at Berkeley
3) I forget.  Class of '95
4) Lots.  Where I live it is a simple matter to drive up into the hills and view the bay and surrounding cities and it's, well, flat.  The rest were mostly thought experiments because I am so small compared to the earth.

Sorry to disappoint.  :'(
