Perhaps my eyes (or lack thereof) are playing tricks on me.

If this image was taken using a fish-eye lens, how come no curvature is seen on the wing?

Flat Earth Q&A / Reflection on FE-ism
« on: September 04, 2007, 09:38:14 AM »

I was convinced this summer that Global Warming was overall inaccurate but then realized the cause of the deception.  The cool temperatures in Northeast US are contributed to the drifting of the warm ocean current away from the coastline resulting in frigid ocean temperatures from the north.

Sorry, I had to kill my bro.  It was not for his inane rants about Global Warming (blame Geoguy for the continued provocation), but because he was hoarding my bandwidth.  I apologize for death and I am sure you will all miss him dearly.

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Mass, energy, and fabric
« on: July 12, 2007, 09:37:36 PM »
How can space know how and by how much to deform based on its distance from an object with mass, if that object does not radiate information into space?

Space is not sentient.  It cannot know.  Its been shown that mass bends space-time.  Your argument is like saying why due photons know how to travel, excite matter, and bend coming in contact near mass.

Where all the energy comes from to warp space.

Or how a chemistry major doesn't know why an electron maintains an orbit and how a person going for a physics minor thinks that an object can't have different relative velocities to different objects.

I thought mass warped space-time?

You could be a pilot light.

Clearly, I am not an FES member since I do not have access to "Flat Earth Believers" board  :'(

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: How does GPS work?
« on: July 09, 2007, 12:07:26 PM »
It's not blocked by anything, or it's reflected there.

1. The earth would degrade or corrupt the signal.

2. Supposing there is something to reflect it, the reflection would affect the signal's travel time rendfering clocking inaccurate.

The FEers suggest that their are networks of huge radio towers scattered around the earth simulating the functions of satellite technology.

This does not hold any water, though, because GPS units work in deep canyons. I went mountain biking in the grand canyon last summer and my handlebar mounted GPS received a signal with no problems.

Before you ask, the GPS was a Garmin Edge 205.

Also, a radio tower network would produce delayed information on precise coordinates.

I don't have a lawyer. Look, my inability to perform your ridiculous requests does not make me any less correct.

If you are not willing to read any peer-reviewed journal articles or experiment yourself, then what kind proof do you need?

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Here's one for you
« on: July 09, 2007, 10:49:18 AM »

Then are you calling aeronaut Sir Richard Ball a liar?

An article by Mr. Ball from the London Journal of 18th July says:

    "The chief peculiarity of the view from a balloon a considerable elevation was the altitude of the horizon, which remained practically on a level with the eye at an elevation of two miles, causing the surface of the earth to appear concave instead of convex, and to recede during rapid ascent, whilst the horizon and balloon seemed to be stationary."

Too bad observation does not constitute as proof.  To correctly assume the horizon is at eye-level, one must use instruments to measure 0 degrees with respect to eye level.

Ask any pilot and he will tell you that the bottom half of the cockpit window is filled with land, and top half filed with sky.

That's one dirty windshield   :D

Either you can produce proof of your claim, or shut up.

Why don't you produce proof of your claims? I have never seen a scientific study of different levels of g at different altitudes. As with many things, it could simply be a myth.

Also, you'll need to explain to us how different measured levels of g proves a Round Earth.

You can preform this yourself simply at different lattitudes and elevation.

The highest I've ever been is just over 41,000 feet, while in the cockpit.

You may need to ascend to 60,000 feet.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Anything besides Gravity wrong with RE?
« on: July 08, 2007, 10:35:34 AM »
Phenomenas which have zero observational or experimental evidence in RE Theory (aka Pseudoscience):

Bending Space
Dark Energy
Dark Matter
Black Holes
Exotic Matter
Sterile neutrinos
Mirror particles
X boson and the Y boson
The magnetic photon
Sleptons and squarks
WIMP (weakly interacting massive particle)
Goldstone bosons
Instanton fields
Magnetic monopoles
Ball lightning
Coriolis effect
Quantized Time
Flux Theory
Wisp Unification Theory
The Grand Unification Theory

There is also belief that a Phantom Energy, which helps explain Universal Expansion.

Drop a pen.

After dropping a pen I saw acceleration. There was nothing which indicated gravitons or a bending of space.

The acceleration of that pen, which has mass, produced a force.  That force is gravity.

Yeah but its shit pay. And also you won't be covered by the shows insurence so you might need a good life insurence scheme. Not that it'll be a dangerous show of course....

So, if I wont be doing dangerous things, then what will I be doing?

Who's Greg Lewis?

Greg Lewis is the person who NASA agent identified as Gayer and killed him.  Of couse he got the wrong Greg Lewis or simply Gayer is not Greg Lewis (the later is proposed since not too many women are named Greg).

Fusion will be mankind first free energy.  They just have to get it to work at a lower temperature. 

True.  Just for it to work efficiently, the temperature must exceed past that of the Sun's core.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: The Antarctic Experiment
« on: July 04, 2007, 10:47:20 AM »
I do not understand your diagram. If I transverse along the Antarctic coastline in the Eastern direction in any model will appear to be the same.  The only difference is that the FE model takes longer to transverse being of a greater circumference.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: TheEngineer is not a pilot.
« on: July 04, 2007, 10:34:49 AM »

Your query lacks any basis in the first place. You have no compelling reason to doubt whether he is a pilot, since nothing he has done or said has indicated any differently (aside from him 'refusing to demonstrate his piloting skills. Which is a dumb reason to begin with)
You expressed needless (but harmless) skepticism at the beginning of the thread, and when he provided evidence dismissing your skepticism -evidence which you again had no reason to doubt- you again accused him of lying. This is called 'denial'.

I did not provide any skepticism in the beginning of the tread since I came on this thread late.  And I am still waiting for that evidence. I am not denying anything, I just want to make sure sources that I will refer to later on this forum (e.g. TheEngineer) has reliable information pertaining to elevation and horizon observations.  I just seem a little skeptical since rentacow questioned TheEngineer's expertise, an expertise for which The Engineer has defended poorly.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: TheEngineer is not a pilot.
« on: July 03, 2007, 09:22:50 PM »
You can. And I can say I don't believe you. But without any evidence to back myself up it is impossible for me to make any positive assertions about the truth or falsity of your claims. So it really doesn't help us much here. That's why unless you have some reason to believe that Engineer is not a pilot other than simple skepticism it doesn't mean anything. That is to say, no one need care.

Lack of purpose does not indicate that my query lacks value.  Other than that, my query does have a reason besides skepticism.  Consider this scenario: If TheEngineer is not a pilot, then his 'expertise' has no merit in support of any theories debated in FES.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: TheEngineer is not a pilot.
« on: July 03, 2007, 09:02:41 PM »

I cannot reasonably believe him to be a pilot without adequate proof, not by your own testament.  IF he presents athis adequate proof, then I will believe him.

I don't think it matters if you believe him or not. Unless you can present some plausible reason why he might feel compelled to lie about being a pilot, and why I might lie to protect him, you have no grounds for argument, and the matter is settled.

By your logic, then I can say I am Jimmy Hoffa, president of the Teamsters.

Douchebags make efficient containers to carry around bulky douches and douche-related supplies.  However, I could not bring one on the plane  :'(

Is that in Korea?  I wonder what is the story associated with this incident.
