Flat Earth Q&A / NASA into space

The theory is evolving, that's how science works.


Sure, theories evolve, but then again they evolve based on something, not just through words thrown around by TheEngineer for no reason and with no basis like "NASA went into space (despite the fact that the FAQ says differently) but they did not take pictures of earth because I say so".

They are not just words.  I've seen three shuttle launches.  I saw the shuttle go very, very high.  Therefore, I have a first hand account that rockets have been into 'space'.


We have been into space, get over it.

Douche.

Hey there.

Don't worry, we have plenty of superfluous useful on the forum that I'm sure some members would be willing to supply you with some. :)

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Attention

Quote from: "Captain I Live With My Mother"
This community does not revolve around the singular idea that the FE'ers are trying to prove that the Earth is flat.  They already know the Earth is flat, so there is no use in trying to convince them otherwise.  Since FE is the huge countertheory to RE, it is most likely that they came to the conclusion themselves rather than indoctrined in this belief.

While I cannot say that they do not wish to "convert" RE'ers to FEism, I can say that it is not the purpose of this forum to do so.  It is merely a discussion forum.

FE'ers have absolutely no obligation to answer any of your challenges.  They do, however, from time to time answer questions, and it is very nice of them to do so even though they aren't required to prove anything to anyone here.  It is unfortunate that this stance is often taken as either ignorance or rudeness.

This is something posters should keep in mind while posting in this forum.


You post your theories on the internet then complain when people ask you to back them up with proof.

Fucktard.

Flat Earth Q&A / What proof do you need to believe the earth is a sphere?

Some points:

1.  TheEngineer is correct.  You can keep accelerating and never go faster than the speed of light.  Hell, you can keep accelerating and never go faster than you were going when you started.

2.  It does not take an infinite amount of energy to accelerate the Earth for a finite period of time, just like it doesn't take an infinite amount of energy to accelerate a rocket ship for a finite period of time.


For fucks sake! You cant accelarate forever and not reach lightspeed dumbass that is impossible.

Tides are caused by the gravitational pull of the moon.

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Tides due to vibrating Earth

Quote from: "Erasmus"
It occurs to me that if the surface of the Earth is a slowly vibrating membrane with its boundary at the ice wall fixed, this could explain tides.  The function describing the vibration would a superposition of waves dominated by something like A/2 sin(θ + π t/(12 hrs)) J_α(r), where A is the height of the highest tide and J_α is a Bessel function of the first kind with α>0.

Basically, this would look like a saddle-shaped surface that rotates throughout the day and possibly (due to smaller-scale fluctuations) vibrates up and down as well.  Mind you it's not the surface itself that's rotating; just the crests and troughs of the "wave".  The two crests would always be on opposite sides of the Earth and would have low tides; the two troughs would be 90 out of phase with the crests and would have high tides (since the water would naturally flow downhill away from the crests.)

The wave itself would of course lose energy over time, but it is possible that tidal gravitational forces from the moon, or some other attractive force between the Earth and Moon, might drive the oscillation, keeping the tides going.  This would of course explain the observed synchrony between the tides and the position of the Moon.

If I can find or produce a video or diagram, I will be sure to post it.


Tides are caused by the moons gravitational pull.

Next.

You cant accelerate indefinatly and not exeed the speed of light.

Yes, you can.



No, you cant. Indefinatly means forever, that means that you are getting faster and faster and faster untill you hit lightspeed.

So there.

No, no. It's not that we aren't expecting people to come in and attempt to refute it. The point was simply that you ARE coming in here trying to prove it. This is such a SIMPLE concept, why do you guys not get it? If this was "The Round Earth Society" and a bunch of guys who believed the Earth was flat, THEN we would need to prove our case, but it's the FLAT Earth society, hence you, who disagree with the ideas of the people here, YOU have to prove US wrong.
Is it that hard to understand? Honestly...


~D-Draw


When you make a website, or anything else for that matter (cult, religion political party, clan, discussion group ect.)

People will expect you to be able to prove that your point of view is not bullshit.

Ex:. People go into a cardgame forum and ask, "Hey guys, show me why you think Vampiric dragon is not a tournament worthy card" and people will explain with playtests results and game theory why it isn't.

You go into a fighting game forum and ask, "hey guys, show me why you think that SNK games are better than Capcom ones" People will show, through movies, game theory, per characte option and character balancing what their point of view is based on, and why it is valid.

Same thing with anything else. They won't go "no sir, you came to our site, we're not showing anything to you, YOU show us that Card X, or game X is not what we say it is. That would be seen as snobish to most people and would just alienate newcomers.

It's not realistic to think that people will come to your forum and NOT expect you to prove that your point of view is valid.


FES, you just got pwned.

If it approached it asymptotically would that still fulfill special reletivity? Asymptotically under my under my understanding could be that given some arbitrarily amount of time (as I would say the earth is reaching at this point) the speed of the earth would get so close to C that the two would be almost indistinguisable.

Now, I don't claim to even have a vague understanding of special reletivity, but at that point, wouldnt the mass be so large as to use incredible amounts of energy, like getting up to an almost infinite amount?

That's the thing about infinity.  The earth can accelerate indefinately and never reach c.  The mass of the earth would get very large and hence the earth from a nonacceleated frame of reference would seem to be slowing in its acceleration.  Luckily for us on the earth, we would see the acceleration stay constant.


That makes no sence.

Hello!

It appears that posting "Hello!" threads isn't commonplace here, but since I'll never feel right being active on on a forum until I post one, here it is. So... Hi! I suppose a long introduction isn't necessary, but I suppose I should point out that I'm a believer in the Flat Earth theory (though for far different reasons than most FEers) and will be defending it. I used to be an REer and believed the propaganda, but then I heard that people still believed in a flat Earth, decided to find out why (after the customary "What a bunch of looneys!" wore off), heard the facts, and converted shortly thereafter. Anywho, see you all on the boards.


Cheers!
