Social Science is used to create new policies!

The food pyramid was introduced to the United States in 1992 and was accepted for 13 years. It turned out to be completely wrong even though it was based on science.

It had carbs at a very high proportion of what people should eat.

If someone had questioned the food pyramid during that time they would have been treated like they were weird.

The President has been promoting the 1 in 5 sexual assault myth but its false
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/no-1-in-5-women-have-not-been-raped-on-college-campuses/article/2551980
He wont do a public retraction though so most people think its true still.

So men in college are given instruction on how not to rape, even though sexual assault is more common in the town surrounding the University.

ive laid out all the reasons this is weird in the OP

just read it again, you are not saying anything that hasnt been answered there.

A plane travelling higher would be covering more distance.

It's like taking the outside track in a horse race.

Just a bunch of crappy excuses and outright lies.

It's obviously the horizon and it covers the entire frame, which was enough to show curvature in the gopro pointing out the window.

You can clearly see the horizon in the third picture  ::)

It's easy to look up astronaut training videos on YouTube where you see a tube on the spacesuit removing any gas that would cause bubbles
It's also possible to keep waste gases in the spacesuit backpack and not even use a tube,considering the helmet is watertight

I remember reading stories of how they would find a finger bone and proclaim a new species has been found

The footage at 70,000 feet was taken when the plane was banking which made the horizon look more curved,this is deliberate distortion.
If there is a natural curve why not use regular lenses instead of a lens used for artistic purposes which has no use in science.
Other wide angle lenses could be used. Gopro cameras are convenient to use but the mythbusters are masters at making their own stuff,they could have made something with a non-distorting lens.

That can't be true because in the third image the horizon is perfectly flat.

If you watch the video the horizon behind him is perfectly flat the whole video and the side cameras show a curved horizon even at a low altitude

Not once do they mention that the image is totally distorted.....even though it's a science show!

The average person doesn't know what a fisheye lens is,or that they distort more around the edges of the image.

One of the mythbusters went on a U2 high altitude flight






They are using a fisheye lens, the higher the horizon is in the frame,the more curved it will appear







In this shot the plane was banking so the horizon is higher in the frame and therefore more curved
https://www.photigy.com/canon-8-15mm-f4-0l-fisheye-lens-first-impressions-you-cant-have-wider-that-this/



But as you can see the horizon behind him is perfectly flat at the same altitude

OK one round earther just said the sun is the primary reason for the tides and another says it's only 3%

How is this measured?

There must be a way of actually measuring the inertia of the earth orbiting the sun with an instrument

284
I thought tides were due to the moon, not the earth going around the sun.

285
Maybe we can't feel it,but there should be an instrument to measure this difference

286
He said the weight changes from noon to midnight
There should be an experiment to measure this

287
There should be an experiment available to measure this if it's real.

Is there?

The atmosphere can't be travelling around the earth due to inertia,because inertia only works in straight lines.

You can throw a tennis ball to a friend on a moving train and it will behave as if the train is still.

Now try doing it when the train is going around in a circle, the ball will always end up to the left of where it should have landed.

In physics when something travels in a circular path it's velocity is constantly changing. The object may have a constant speed but it is constantly changing direction to get a circular path.

Going around a corner in a car at a constant speed still makes the passengers move to one side.

So if the earth is circling the sun it's angular velocity should be constantly changing so we should feel it
This ride goes around at a constant speed but the chairs still flare outwards

OK so there is a visible star 8200 light years away

http://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/45759/what-is-the-farthest-away-star-visible-to-the-naked-eye

Has anyone done any calculations to see how far away our sun would be visible to?

Ah, so a very distant Star could be young and therefore very bright

Thanks do you know of anyone who has calculated the minimum size the nearest Star has to be,to be visible?
It would be interesting to see how big the furthest visible star has to be,to be visible with the naked eye.there is no need to include telescopes in this as the eye can see stars that are billions of miles or light years(?) Away.

Flat Earth Debate / light shouldn't be able to travel far
« on: May 09, 2016, 02:25:44 PM »
When light travels it expands in all directions, like a balloon inflating.
So the power of the light decreases greatly as it travels
Official source here:
https://van.physics.illinois.edu/qa/listing.php?id=21368
 Read the third paragraph, he talks about light expanding and getting weaker.

It seems unlikely that light would be able to travel billions of miles without getting too weak to detect.

The scientist says lights power decreases by the distance travelled squared,is that an exponential decrease?

The same thing applies to any wave.
You need a huge transmitter just to get a radio signal to broadcast over several miles.

Just thinking about our sun, we are really close to our sun compared to a distant Star but our sun can only heat us up to about 120 degree Fahrenheit which isn't much compared to how hot it is really.

« on: May 09, 2016, 11:03:04 AM »
Do you have a way of getting what you see in the telescope into a computer?

295
If time dilation is real it proves the world only has a limited processing power.
If an object is moving fast,time slows down for that object, so that the universe can calculate if it is colliding with something else.

The more people there are,the more mass entertainment we get like TV and video games, this puts most people in a catatonic state for most of the time so the world doesn't have to spend much power calculating their actions and words.

From 39 minutes to 41 it seems like the buckle on the end of the strap is showing buoyancy, it constantly goes up to point in the same direction ,even when the astronaut pushes it out of the way
