Why are you Americans so obsessed with all things American and appear no to be able to lift your vision beyond your own shores?
Yes, silly Americans. I am from the Netherlands the most ''flat land'' of earth  ;D ;D ;D
We observe beyond the curvature all the time, looking into the distance on our flat beach.
I sometimes tell people that you cannot see all of  the ''pier of Scheveningen'' from Noordwijk, because it is more than half way over the earth's curvature.
Then they redicule me, like others redicule me for claiming the opposite......

Silly earthlings.

Rocks, which other do you represent? For me it's UK
I prefer to keep personal information private if possible but I can tell you that I'm not a native English speaker, and from Europe.

I challenge you to swab your roof for whatever they're spraying.

You claim that there is only one possible way to explain it, but how could you possibly be certain of this?

It's only a threat if there is something to hide.
It's a threat if civilization is on the verge of crumbling.

The one graviton applies make up and perfume, gets her har and nails did and wears fancy clothes. The other graviton works out daily to get them sweet gains to impress gravitons he's attracted to.


I think it's fair to say that how gravity works is still very open to debate. Don't you love that science isn't even close to being done?

Basically this thread is about topics where we're still trying to figure out how it all works. If science tells you something about it, it's probably a best working theory, or essentially the best way we can currently explain things.

All I want to point out is that, depending on location and weather, you will get different results. This can also mean that you see less curvature than expected and claim that all the disappearing behind the horizon that happens, is due to atmospheric refraction or the water not being completely level due to gravitational anomalies. This can also mean that you see less curvature than expected and say it's because those two processes worked the other way.

The point is, things are more complex than people usually assume and this will mess with your data.

Here's an interesting point of view on crepuscular rays:

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2011/11/02/crepuscular-rays-are-parallel/#.WPviZPnyiUk

Basically:

"Despite seeming to converge at a point, the rays are in fact near-parallel shafts of sunlight, and their apparent convergence is a perspective effect (similar, for example, to the way that parallel railway lines seem to converge at a point in the distance)."

Who says the entire universe is held in place by gravity? Also, are you scared of big numbers?

Being one of "them", I truly resent your opinion. All our work is available, if you're going to ask questions then feel free to dig deep into centuries of research. Videos like this appear because a core part of our society is under threat.

Still no one has explained this. Maybe I should switch over to FE?
If you wish to switch over to FE then maybe you should. Now if you clearly formulate a question then perhaps someone can help you, because currently you didn't make it very clear what you are here for.

In the scenario of a curved earth, looking at the horizon means your line of sight is not parallel to the ground.

What are gravitational anomalies (...)?
Essentially, gravity is not constant over the earth's surface. Variations in the composition and structure of the crust and mantle influence the gravity that we experience at the surface, and as a result, water surface can deviate from the curvature that you would expect. Here's an image to show what I mean:



The reference ellipsoid is the "average" shape of the earth and as this image makes clear, the ocean surface tends to deviate from it.

Also, this image shows the global deviations from the average gravity

Could you also do this math for stars and the moon? And perhaps planets?

Don't forget to take into account important yet often neglected factors like atmospheric refraction and gravitational anomalies which can make the surface of water deviate from this average curve that you seem to be expecting. That means that actual results can deviate in both ways.

What work, exactly? People on here can't even agree on a best working model for FET.\

PS. great video, thanks for sharing.

You forgot people here to troll round earth believers. Some people pretend to think the earth is flat to waste peoples time in arguments.
This. The majority of users is made up of:

-People who want to bash true flat earth believers
-People who want to troll round earthers
-People who are just here for shits and giggles

That's about it, really.

A historical book, not fictional.

How about A + B + C = D where A = B = C = D

Is this a lie?

The bible implies it
Only works if A = B = C = D = 0

sorry

You're wildly misinterpreting someone else's work, Sandokhan. Also, try coming up with your own text for once.

53
Not hey ahve not, you just can't face the truth, BOY!!!
Now that's not really a scientific argument. Try again.

Here is the Sagnac effect for you again.

THE ORBITAL SAGNAC EFFECT IS NOT BEING RECORDED BY SATELLITES OR ANY OTHER SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENT.

https://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=30499.msg1846721#msg1846721

The ether does exist since the Sagnac effect cannot be explained by relativity:

https://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=30499.msg1886058#msg1886058

The Sagnac effect is far larger than the effect forecast by relativity theory.

STR has no possible function in explaining the Sagnac effect.

The Sagnac effect is a non-relativistic effect.

https://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=30499.msg1886174#msg1886174
Like many times before, the orbital sagnac effect is insignificant. Why don't you prove that it is signficant, and show your work. And while you're at it, publish a peer reviewed paper on how we're missing it.

refute this video

" class="bbc_link" target="_blank">
Hey boy, you already have a thread on that. Also:

All calculations to distant objects behind the horizon are flawed as you have no way of properly assessing the influence of atmospheric refraction phenomena.

Considering how straight the space station looks in those photo's, it doesn't seem like fish-eye either.

In the GoFast rocket video, at video time 1 minute and 1 second the rocket stops spinning.

If the rocket did not hit the dome, then what cause it to stop spinning, without violating the Conservation Law of Energy and Angular momentum?

Do you know how much energy would be needed for it to stop spinning?

If you have no idea what Iím talking about, then you should not be defending the spherical earth. Learn the basics first, and then talk to us.

By the way, I made a great video that debunks the notion that the Earth is a sphere with scientific methodology.




Letís go to the basics:

Conservation Laws
If a system does not interact with its environment in any way, then certain mechanical properties of the system cannot change. They are sometimes called "constants of the motion". These quantities are said to be "conserved" and the conservation laws which result can be considered to be the most fundamental principles of mechanics. In mechanics, examples of conserved quantities are energy, momentum, and angular momentum.

Conservation of Energy
The conservation of energy principle is one of the foundation principles of all science disciplines.

Conservation of Angular Momentum
The angular momentum of a system remains constant in both magnitude and direction. We do not know of anything in nature that violates it.
Before you try lecturing others, spend some time to make sure you didn't miss any obvious explanations.

No because an anomaly in gravity skews your entire reference frame.

Dear Sandokhan,

What does it take to make you realize that your opinion is not always correct?

Kind regards,
