Reported due to it can be perceived as Islamophobia.

I already knew you were islamophobic. Those who follow my list know that next to your name is islamophobic. But it's sad that you can still remain so bigoted even in this millennium.





Not Islamophobic! Islamofunny!

Flat Earth General / Re: Finally... It's Time to Hail PHEW
« on: December 07, 2022, 03:25:14 PM »
Danang, you constantly spout nonsense about everything in your own pseudo jargon, but please explain as simply and non-jargon-y as possible:

I understand what you say PHEW is.
I understand what you think a South Pole centered map is.

How are they related? What makes a South Pole centered map a PHEW map? (Or not a PHEW map?)

The subject is the Mandela effect, what does the caricature of Mohammed ... have to do with it?

The subject is Mandela Effect and Flat Earth; you are the one who brought up off-topic Salman Rushdie being killed after publishing TSV.

I am referencing the immorality of calling for the death of someone who is perceived as having slighted their "prophet."

Am I the only one who thinks that Salman Rushti was killed after publishing his book "The Satanic Verses"?

Probably. I saw him speak at my alma mater 15 years after The Satanic Verses, despite the unconscionable actions of Khomeini and the immoral, hypocritical core beliefs of that excuse for a religion.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: What are the dimensions of the flat earth

Why does wise slavishly insist that part of the data (time of flight) is completely accurate and what should be used to compute straight line distance, but ignore the part of the data (map and actual distance flown) that refutes his argument? Because wise is a deceitful liar. Shame on you, wise! "Lying is evil's doing and evil doing leads to hell."

The diameter of the flat Earth is 8000 miles. Its thickness, unsurprisingly, is 8000 miles and it has a slight bulge in the middle of each side.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Go outside
« on: November 26, 2022, 10:31:43 AM »
It’s that simple. Go outside. Look as far as you can, and make sure nothing is blocking your view and that you can see the horizon. You like to say “I shouldn’t be able to see this, but I can, so the Earth is flat!”. But why can’t you see, say, the Eiffel Tower from Dallas, Texas? The Earth is flat, right? So you should be able to see infinitely far. Squint your eyes, try and see it.

Your indignation and condescension lose a lot of punch when your argument is so stupid. Eiffel Tower is 1000 feet tall. Just for jollies let's say flat earthers think Dallas to Paris is 1000 miles (it's 5000, but let's be generous).

1000 feet at 1000 miles is the same angular extent as 1 foot at 1 mile. Are you seriously telling me that you could see, much less identify, a needly iron spike a foot high from one mile away?

If you're gonna "hey, dumbass" someone with an argument, make sure the argument doesn't make you look like a bigger dumbass.

It is provable that water is magnetic.

Being magnetic is not a binary function, either yes or no. The fact that water can be repulsed by an incredibly strong magnetic field at a distance of a few cm cannot be equivalently compared to the creation of a water lens in the atmosphere by the very weak magnetic field of the earth.

It would be more intellectually honest to say that water is almost completely non-magnetic, unless you can provide some numeric values that suggest it is at all a factor in the forces involved.

It is similar to the statement "The Moon has an atmosphere, so we should see red sunsets during solar eclipses." The Moon does have an atmosphere, but it is so thin and tenuous, it's more accurate to say that for almost all practical purposes the Moon has no atmosphere.

Good luck investigating!

Flat Earth General / Re: Lunar eclipse notes
« on: November 15, 2022, 12:43:55 PM »
Also, note that a lunar eclipse can happen while the moon and sun are both visible in the sky.

There are always points on Earth where during a lunar eclipse you can see the sun in the sky at the same time ... the question is whether there is an observer there.

Your ideas of what *should* be happening are based on some assumptions that are not necessarily true ... for one, that light always travels in a straight line. It does not.

First published results; DART shortened Dimorphos' orbit by 32 +/- 2 minutes (about 4%), and 3x more than the amount defined as mission success.

Those experienced with theodolites (precision digital theodolites with accuracies of 1 arcsecond or less) are familiar with and frequently make measurements that show the curvature of the earth (rule of thumb 1 arcsec/100 feet) in large temperature and humidity controlled cleanrooms where errors attributable to atmospheric line of sight distortions and deviations are essentially eliminated. Over larger distances outdoors these measurements are also made frequently and often well documented online.

Good luck with your measurements but before posting here please make sure to perform and include a statistically relevant error analysis.

I think loading the kinetic impactor with a small nuke would have been cool. It could have vaporised some of the ejected material. An asteroid still has gravity and those particles that fly off after a collision might just find their way back together. Reducing the mass of an asteroid would do wonders to affect its orbit. Even a small change of mass over years or decades could make a big difference
The sat weighed 360kg and struck the asteroid at 17000km/h. Plug those numbers in and the resultant explosion was probably close to what a nuke does anyway.

Not quite. 610kg at 6000m/s = 11 GJ or less than 3 tons of TNT (cf Little Boy at 15 kilotons).

For "deflections" also remember that in many cases a deflection to the side is not as effective as a head-on hit that slows the asteroid sufficiently over years so that it arrives too late at where Earth would be. (Earth travels distance of its own diameter in 7 minutes).

I know

But was it from the back side or fr9nt?

i just want to know their mode of thinking

frontal will take much more enegery and mass and IMO probably the worst idea

i would think from the back (diggigigity) as most effective to cause the object to overshoot, unless if the object is heading straight for us.

best bet for a test be a side impact to see how much a deflection is possible and then it's all math by angles.

Hitting head on applies force (very close to) opposite the orbital velocity vector. This slows Dimorphos, lowers its orbit, and most importantly decreases its orbital period by 10 minutes, or about 1%. It is WAY easier to detect that change in orbital period than any sort of absolute angular change in expected location.

Which is easier to detect on a tiny fuzzy blob of light and an even tinier; fainter blob of light ... that they are 1% closer, or that after 50 orbits the faint blob is on the opposite side from where it should be?

Also, hitting from the side means Dimorphos and Didymos are along the same line of sight and the spacecraft has a much harder time telling them apart and might miss Dimorphos.

In fact, Earth telescopes can measure the orbital period even easier, as the two form an eclipsing binary. No need to try to image miniscule Dimorphos, just look at the change in timing of the intensity dips as they pass in front of each other.

« on: August 29, 2022, 06:55:09 PM »
My point is if we never went to the moon, we never went to space. No such thing as space. We can't get to any so called planets cus there's a dome above us. Which means the earth is flat, not round and it doesn't move, doesn't spin. Etc.

Pretty poor performance as a pretend flat-earth troll. Try some subtlety and finesse under your next alias.

There should be no personal judgment about the viewpoint of others therefore could you stop using unpleasant words like super smart, super idiot, etc. - just a humble request?

Actually I believe I said 'super stupid'

Because you obviously don't want to listen to any of us spoil your 'eureka' moment, I'll let this site articulate the properties of zero for you

You are the greatest unfriendly witless disgusting super mf living imbecile moron on the face of the earth - because you don't understand civil language - Just an unpleasant response to an uncivil response. Next, it will be more vulgar and one step above if you don't stop judging as advised in civil way.

Ease up mate. Remember 'There should be no personal judgment about the viewpoint of others' is your creed, not mine

You need to move on from this 'I can divide be zero' nonsense.
No worries. You are always welcome. it was just an idea that i shared that could be wrong or right.

You have an idea, it's just not 'division'. Calling it division means it has to agree with millenia of consistency with mathematical division. Call it "distribution of berries to some or no children" and you won't invoke the same ire you've seen here.

I've heard somewhere that "A full rotating earth has never been pictured"

I have heard a similar argument "There is no picture of the entire Earth from space" with the arguer clarifying it meaning there is no single photo that shows everywhere on Earth at once.

Flat Earth General / Re: The Real Source of James Webb Photos
« on: August 06, 2022, 07:10:47 PM »
It does make you question just how many photos they have released that are actually just mock ups gone unnoticed....
Well I would say if it is just on twitter, without a proper official source (e.g. NASA website), I wouldn't be less inclined to trust it.
You are right. An expert in the field isn't an official source. This is why there was such an uproar about him being caught doing this.

Except he’s not an expert in the field. While a prominent researcher in alternative and atomic energy, a lecturer in quantum and particle physics, and a science popularizer, nothing in his online credentials suggest that he has any experience (professional or even casual) in space science, astronomy, imaging, astrophysics, or cosmology.

Tom also thinks all non-motorized pendula stop after a few hours (not true) and that the spinning of tbe heavens every 24 hours directly causes the precession  of the FP ... curious, since FPs' precession rate is a deterministic function of latitude.

59
Yes, but I watch the Universe from my window and I do not need a fake telescope in space doing it for me.
Good for you.  That means that you won't be stealing any telescope time from real astronomers who do need space telescopes.
Correct. And no asstronmers will sit and watch anything in space through the JWST tube. The JWST, if it exists, just take photos in infrarred of objects in the Universe, that are then sent to Earth for examination.  It is all automatic and remote controlled.
That doesn't mean that the time required to do observations isn't meticulously scheduled and allocated, and that none of that precious resource would ever be given to someone with less than minimum adequate credentials.
