Philosophy, Religion & Society / Re: Why do you support Joe Biden?
« on: August 12, 2020, 12:53:27 AM »
Is there a reason Trump calls him 'Sleepy Joe'? Does he nod off on the job or something? Or is just some colourful adjective Trump made up hoping people will believe it if it's said enough times?

Good question. I think it's supposed to be a reference to Joe's age/acumen/lack of spryness of mind, but don't know for sure. I think the Biden supporters take it more of his rope-a-dope strategy which seems to be, give trump enough rope and he'll hang himself. So far, working.

Sorry for your loss. Sounds like it's exactly the celebration Mimi would have wanted. Having grown up in New England, Christmas in August does sound way more civilized.

I thought since Laussedat is real maybie his observation and conclusion is too? I just asked

 
Quote
First off, you realize Verne's book is a novel, a work of fiction, right?

Yes.

Civil war is for example mentioned. It is real. I thought since novel contains real astronomet it maybie his observation is used to draw conclusion which is true

Look through the links I provided. It is not true.

Hello. So i was readibg "Form the Earth to the Moon" (1865) which i found. In chapter XVII "Meeting" aprox 5 pages in i found this.

Context, they are talking about exsistance of atmosphere on Moon. Book I am reading isn't on english, so it translation says:

Quote


One wery able French astronomer, mr. Laussedat, found out, when observing eclipse 18.7.1860, that ?"horns"? of sun were ensrcled and "cut"?. So, that event can happen only beacuse sunlight shattering in lunar atmosphere

Idk. I tried googling but it doesn give anything useful.

Idk. Laussedat is real, so it gives chance Verne is describing something real.

So, there is no atmosphere on Moon as Mod. Science claims. They say we landed and checked. So, maybie HC model is correct, but hyporhetical atmsphere proves Moon landings were faked?

Also, maybie in  "AFET" style model it is dense aether bubble? ???

First off, you realize Verne's book is a novel, a work of fiction, right?

Here is the direct English translation from Verne's 'From Earth to the Moon':

""Let us proceed," replied Ardan, with perfect coolness, "and come to one important fact. A skillful French astronomer, M. Laussedat, in watching the eclipse of July 18, 1860, probed that the horns of the lunar crescent were rounded and truncated. Now, this appearance could only have been produced by a deviation of the solar rays in traversing the atmosphere of the moon. There is no other possible explanation of the facts.""

From what I've been able to find out, what Laussedat observed and has been observed many times are what are called "Coronal Transients" or "Coronal Plumes". The long and short of it is that they are a feature of the suns corona and not related to the moon per se, as they have been observed during non-eclipses. So no, they have nothing to do with what Verne's protagonist in his novel claim.

Here's a long paper on the study of Coronal Plumes and Solar Wind:
Solar Coronal Plumes
https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/lrsp-2015-7

As well, more specifics regarding the "horns" observation:

If I believed that I could jump off a building and fly away, maybe I'd be looney but the belief is still there. It is not 'false'. It's real enough in my mind. That belief is not 'false'.

Belief does not need to be demonstrably true. That's the point of it being a belief. Like a belief in God. It doesn't need to be true for you to believe it to be true. The belief itself is not false. It's personal.

I guess this concept is beyond some. The fact that I can believe things, imagine things, conjure things..... These are qualities that seperate mankind from lesser animals.

Some people got it. Some people don't. ::)

Acting on a false belief can be catastrophic; in that if you were to jump off a building thinking that you can fly, what would be the results death, or severe injury.

Indeed. But that would be my belief. No one can judge anothers belief as false. They aren't in their mind

See, but that’s why it’s one big perpetual unanswerable loop. Do I believe or know you can’t fly? Do I have to wait for you to jump off the building and plummet to the ground to then be able to say I know, not just believe, you can’t fly? Or can I say with an extremely high level of certainty before you step off the ledge that I know you can’t fly?

As you may imagine, there's are a lot of scholarly papers and articles written over the years regarding knowledge and belief and the distinction between the two. Poking around I found a pretty terse 1 minute read on the subject from a Prof of Philosophy at a Texas university. His definition of 'belief' I thought was especially interesting. Worth checking out.

http://www.scribespark.com/blog/belief-vs-knowledge.html

He starts out with the premise and goes on from there with just a few points and examples.

Belief vs Knowledge
What's the difference?

Knowledge: a reasonable claim to knowledge must be:

logical: limited to evidence–based reasoning that is both true and valid
falsifiable: a way exists to prove whether or not it’s correct
precise: not made of arbitrary parts

Belief: a belief need only be consistent with the psychological state of the claimant

Can't be.

http://www.vho.org/tr/2004/3/Kausch250-253.html

What sort of Soviet craft had orbited the earth then, if it was not a space ship with two cosmonauts on board? All stated contradictions and lies expose the secret of Leonov's 'space flight': What Soviet propaganda called 'Voskhod 2' was actually a tiny satellite that carried tape-recorded voices, heartbeats etc. and (faked) telemetric transmissions for a gigantic hoax!

'Four months of solid research interviewing experts in the fields of photo-optics, photo-chemistry and electro-optics, all of whom carefully studied the motion picture film and still photographs officially released by theSoviet Government ... (indicate them to be) double-printed .. The foreground (Leonov) was superimposed on the background (Earth below).The Russian film showed reflections from the glass plate under which a double plate is made ... Leonov was suspended from wire or cables ...In several episodes of the Russian film, light was reflected from a small portion of wire (or cable) attached to Leonov's space suit ...One camera angle was impossible of achievement. This showed Leonov crawling out of his hatch into space. It was a head on shot, so the camera would have had to have been located out in space beyond thespace ship.'

The Americans had to fake their missions as well since the SAME laws of physics were applied.

I don't see any evidence that the Leonov mission was a hoax. The second link you provided seems to think it was all just Russian propaganda but concludes with American Ed White's spacewalk as being real and the first one:

"All this would probably have been forgotten, had not Soviet propaganda on behalf of Party comrade Leonov brought him back to the memory of the world. Perhaps it was designed to bolster their great hoax after its near failure 10 years before. He was supposed to be not only a space veteran older than Stafford, but also "the first to walk in space" - an obnoxious insult aimed at the late Ed White, the really first free-floating spaceman. Alexei Leonov, the Soviet "cosmonaut hero," is truly a remarkable sample of Communist deceit."

The author refers to Ed White as the real first free-floating spaceman.

So this is in direct contradiction to your claim that if Leonov was fake, all space missions are fake. Even your author disagrees with you.

Stash and jack, there aren't that many interpretations of the word, knowing. Jack, I like how you try to differentiate the meaning by being either a verb or adjective, and then dont provide the verb meaning.

I still think you're starting from the wrong place. And again, this has turned into a saga about word usage which seems unnecessary, but is also now important.

Forget the word (adj) "knowing". As you stated, it means: showing or suggesting that one has knowledge or awareness that is secret or known to only a few people. That word and definition has nothing to do with this. Secret? Known to only a few people? Irrelevant.

What you want is the verb, to know:

verb (used without object), knew, known, know·ing.

to have knowledge or clear and certain perception, as of fact or truth. to be cognizant or aware, as of some fact, circumstance, or occurrence; have information, as about something.


Ditch your adjective 'knowing'.

Solarwind is chasing an easy answer. He just needs to decide for himself what the difference between knowing and believing is. (If there is a difference)

To say you know the earth is round because of NASA photos, geography, and the scientific explanation, simply means you accept those to be true.

Let's say I was religious or spiritual, and decided to conduct a few experiments with God. Let's say I decide to pray to be the owner of a specific object which may be very rare and my physical efforts to obtain said item are exhausted. I give a time limit to receive the item. I pray in a way I have already received the item at the time I have set. Let's say, the event unfolds exactly as I visualize, and I receive the item at my predetermined time.

Let's say I repeat the experiment a number of times, and am successful each time.

That's an experiment. For me, that might be enough proof God answered my prayer, and therefore God is real. You could say you know god is real, and it not be a fictitious statement at all.

But it's not objective proof. Its subjective proof. Also, an outsider could easily argue the results to be pure coincidences.

So, knowing is as subjective as believing.

All that said, I'm having a hard time rejecting your "knowing is as subjective as believing." And it's bugging me because I want to reject it but I can't. Maybe that's what JB was referring to when he was talking about if you look at 'knowing' from a purely philosophical perspective. But I'm fixing to find something that meets both philosophy and reality.

REVERSE ENGINEERING AT IT'S BEST !!!

Now, it's time to recall the following excerpt from Gerrard Hickson's book "Kings dethroned" :

MIT`S WACKY `NUT COLLECTION`: SCIENTIFIC IDEAS FROM THE FRINGE
By Richard Higgins, Boston Globe/chicagotribune.com

"Gerrard Hickson was nothing if not confident. His 1922 book, ''Kings Dethroned,'' promised to show that the history of astronomy was ''an amazing series of blunders founded on an error made in the 2d Century B.C.'' It debunked Copernicus, ridiculed Charles Darwin and showed Albert Einstein to be a fool.

The volume ''contains one of the most momentous messages ever condensed into 112 pages,'' according to a press release by Hicksonia Publishing Co., and was ''destined perhaps to stir worlds of thought as greatly as did'' the most revolutionary theories of science.

Instead, it ended up in what archivists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology affectionately call their ''nut collection'' - MIT`s Archive of Useless Research.
"

Yet another dubious reference to add to your dubious claims.

1+1 does not always = 2.

yes it does as long as numbers go, and nothing more was asked. you do get the concept of numbers, don't you?

So we just assume everybody works in base 10 unless stated otherwise?

Irrelevant.

When everyone is talking back and forth in base 10 it would be irrelevant to bring up all of the things are not in base 10. You'd be here all day.

"Ok, what about oceans?
"We're not talking about oceans."

"Ok, what about black holes?"
"We're not talking about black holes"

And on and on and on.

Are you actually being serious?

The point is the answer to 1+1 is not always 2. 'always' clearly the qualifying word here

Sure, just seems ridiculously pedantic and unnecessary. Me thinks you're just bored, a slow news day, and you feel like stirring some pots. Stir away.

No, jack black. Those definitions are copy and paste from the dictionary.

No, jack black. That is not what I'm saying. Subjective is not the same as fictitious. Subjective is based on personal feelings, while fictitious is made up.

No, Hamzah.

Solar wind, I think you're done here.

tl;dr: I don't think there is really an answer to be found for Solar's question.

I might be getting hung up on usage here, but I think whatever version of the word 'know' that is in play to get at Solar's question is not the adj definition; The showing or suggesting that one has knowledge or awareness that is secret or known to only a few people. We're not talking about the wink and a nudge, the "knowing smile". I mean the secret, known to a few bit has no relevance.

I think what Solar is talking about is "to know". As in you 'know' something to be true based upon information gained through study, experimentation, observation, evidence, that kind of know. And I think that kind of know is a little tricky.

Because someone could say "I know God exists because of my study of religious texts and the observations and accounts captured therein." And I would say that's still just a subjective belief, you don't really know, because I don't find your evidence or observations rigorous enough to truly be considered evidence supporting a statement of "I know..."

It really comes down to veracity of the evidence and how it reaches or exceeds the bar passing up and through belief and into know.

Solar said something interesting, "If flat Earth theory was scientifically based then all evidence would be admissible." I think that strikes at the core of the issue. Or perhaps muddies it and adds yet another layer. Idk

In my example, I don't feel that scripture is evidence to know God exists. Whereas someone else does. I have ostensibly dismissed what someone feels is evidence to know.

In my world, all space exploration evidence is proof positive for me to know that the earth rotates and is round. Whereas FE completely dismisses all my evidence as inadmissible.  In their eyes, my globe earth is a belief just like in my eyes, someones existence of God is just a belief. The dividing line is what each accepts as the "know" type of evidence. And I'm not sure you can ever reach an agreement on that for a variety of subjects.

Going back to Solar's point maybe one way to tease it out at least for an FE v RE subject is what is the RE evidence that allows RE to know that is dismissed by FE and what is the FE evidence that allows FE to know that is dismissed by RE. As discussed, FE dismisses RE space exploration evidence. What FE evidence does RE dismiss that's as comparably massive as something like space exploration?

Technology, Science & Alt Science / Re: Perseverence
« on: August 07, 2020, 07:26:27 AM »

It is quite easy to fake everything.

Ha!  That’s what the Fake Spacers always say.  Little or no thought ever seems to go into what it would actually take to fake it.

Quote
The rover works of course but only on Earth. 

Why only on earth?  The rover would have been designed, built and tested for the expected conditions on Mars.  If it couldn’t meet the requirement specs, the scientists and engineers working on the project would know.  Not sure what you think would make it only work on Earth, but whatever. 

This of course applies to every system and subsystem of any spacecraft/probe/lander/rover.  For every single part they’d either need to build it for real, or involve all the relevant people in faking something that still looks credible to everyone not in on it, whilst hiding the real results.  All those people are security risks who could deliberately or inadvertently blow the whole operation.  Easier and safer just to build something to spec.

Quote
Then it is loaded on a rocket that takes off and disappears in the sky.

Oh, the rocket just “disappears into the sky”, does it?  Great detective work there. 

However, building the rockets is much the same situation as with the craft.  Everyone working on the rockets knows exactly what they are and aren’t capable of.  If a rocket couldn’t deliver a specified payload to a specified trajectory everyone would know about it. 

What’s more, the weight, thrust, fuel, etc specs of the rockets are publicly released.  Orbits and trajectories can be calculated by anyone.  Have any Fake Spacers even bothered to check the calculations themselves?  Or is that too much like putting in some actual effort?

Also, spacecraft are tracked by radar and by their transmissions by  other spaces agencies and civilian stations, so that’s a whole load more people who need to be in on it.

Quote
Only a few people at NASA ground control knows that the rocket will never arrive anywhere.

Ridiculous.  As well as maintaining the conspiracy with international agencies, and the suppliers of the rockets and craft, now they need to fake everything internally well enough to fool their own staff of incredibly well qualified and highly skilled staff? 

Those few Illuminati (or whatever) higher ups must be real workhorses, to manage not just all the normal things for running the operation, but also faking everything to fool the majority of their own staff, as well as the rest of the world.  The people they’d have to fool are literally pouring over the data all day every day, and none of them ever spot anything suspicious?

Quote
So they report regular progress, etc.
The arrival Mars is 100% Hollywood studio work again with some NASA ground control staff playing their roles. Finally the rover is put on Mars (i.e. Earth) and NASA can show films about it. Etc, etc.

Sure, sure. 

So as well as faking the engineering effort (or making it for real), faking the telemetry, faking the instrument data, now you’d need to bring in whole teams of “Hollywood” crews, CGI artists, and whatnot for the images and videos to present to the public.  Again, every single one is a security risk. 

Why bother with all of that when it’s easier to at least try to do for real?  Its embarrassing when a mission fails (which they do), but nothing compared to being caught cheating. 

So what’s the sum total of evidence the Fake Spacers have uncovered for half a century of alleged deception (to the best of my knowledge):

A) Number of whistleblowers = 0
B) Number of leaked documents pointing to conspiracy = 0
C) Number of engineers/technicians/scientists working on the projects claiming something didn’t add up in the specs or data = 0
D) Number of technical issues uncovered that’s confirmed by anyone who actually knows what they are talking about = 0
E) Number of scientists who have studied the results or samples who doubt their authenticity = 0

And yet:

F) Number of photos you all think look a bit funny (yet are easily explained) = Lots
G) Amount of personal incredulity = Off the chart

Conclusion:  Fake Spacers have had decades to find some actual evidence and have absolutely nothing.

Quote
Same scenario as for the Apollo 11 trip 1969. What a waste of money.

You’re right about one thing.  It’s as implausible now as it was in 69.  More so in fact as they’d need to maintain the conspiracy started all those years ago.

Thanks for clarifying many things. I appreciate it very much.
So the US Perseverence rover + rocket has gone to Mars and will arrive there after a 200+ days orbit trajectory in space. Upon arrival Mars gravity attracts rover + rocket! They will drop down on Mars. But how?

I presume you have the same access to the internet that I do. Look it up. There are a million documents, images, videos that show exactly how.

On Earth US space crafts drop into oceans full of water and USN pick them up. But on Mars there are no oceans or US Navies so how to land? Drop straight on the ground?

Russia's Soyuz drops on the ground.

Is the rover designed for it? I know Mars gravity is weaker than Earth's but dropping something on Mars from space normally creates a crater = hole in the ground = nothing else.

I presume you have the same access to the internet that I do. Look it up. There are a million documents, images, videos that show exactly how.

Assuming the rover arrives safely without creating a crater, it will then drive around and look for life and check the weather and report back to base/Earth. And then? What to do with the data?
Do you know any PhD expert on Earth capable to make any sense of such data from Mars?

Are you just patently against exploration, science...progress of any kind? Just because you don't know how to analyze data means that no one else does? So if you don't understand something or don't know how to do something you're convinced that no one else on the planet possibly could? What's wrong with you?

When doing experiments like this that are on the edge, you also need to consider refraction.
Refraction will allow you to see further than the Earth alone would allow.
This is because the atmospehre has a density gradient that will cause light to bend downwards.
A common formula I have seen is to multiply the radius of Earth by 7/6.

But over water that can vary quite dramatically.

Interesting stuff. I guess if you could figure out how the density of air affects the speed of light, you could then figure out how much light bends due to refraction.

People have figured out refractive calculations. Geodesy/Surveying have been doing it for decades.

I came up with a formula that can be used to disprove (or prove, for that matter) the flat earth theory. If you know the height of some vertical object and the distance between you and that object, you can calculate the minimum altitude from which that object is visible. This works perfectly on an ocean because earth's gravity causes water to minimize its potential energy. The minimization of potential energy results in perfectly smoothly curved water (yes, water actually curves).

If you want an easy way to accomplish what you're after, check out Walter Bislin's Advanced Earth Curvature Calculator:

http://walter.bislins.ch/bloge/index.asp?page=Advanced+Earth+Curvature+Calculator

It allows you to punch in all the parameters (including refraction) and do measurements/comparisons.

You can receive radio waves from many thousands of kilometres away on the planet. If the Earth were spherical, these waves would get lost to space. Clearly the Earth is flattish

Depends on the frequency of radio waves.

"Line of Sight (Space Wave)
With this method of travel, radio waves are sent as a simple beam of light from point A to point B. This method was commonly used in old-fashioned telephone networks that had to transmit calls over a long distance between two massive communication towers.

Ground Wave (Surface Wave)
You can also send radio waves along the curvature of the earth’s surface in the form of a ground wave. You’ll find AM radio waves traveling in this manner for short to medium distances, which is why you can still hear radio signals even when there isn’t a transmitter and receiver in your line of sight.

Ionosphere (Sky Wave)
Last, you can also send radio waves straight up into the sky, which ends up bouncing off of the earth’s ionosphere, which is an electrically charged part of the atmosphere. When you do this, the radio waves will hit the ionosphere, bounce back down to earth, and bounce back up again. This is the process of mirroring a wave, bouncing it back and forth to its final destination.

No conspiracy theories. I just show that Nuclear Bombs don't exist.
Saying that nuclear bombs are fake propaganda and eye witnesses are paid actors is a conspiracy theory.
No, I just say nuclear bombs do not work. They were invented 1945.

Part of your "explanation" that they don't exist is that the fact they don't really exist is covered up by the many nations that claim to have them. As well as those many nations convincing the populace they do in fact exist. That whole part I just described is a 'conspiracy' to hide the fact that they don't exist from the world. The Conspiracy is part and parcel of your "explanation". Because you are claiming they don't exist you are also defacto claiming a conspiracy is afoot to hide the fact they don't exist. Hence, you are a conspiracy theorist. You need a conspiracy for you to be right. Do you not get that?

As an aside, your "explanation" still is just the culmination of some conversations you had with a couple of Japanese people and a girl you met in a bar. That's not much to go on to claim the atomic nations of the world are conspiring together to hide the fact that a-bombs don't exist. But that's what conspiracy theorists do, make unverifiable personal claims that have no real bearing or relevance on the wider array of facts available.

No experiment has ever been performed with such excruciating persistence and meticulous precision, and in every conceivable manner, than that of trying to detect and measure the motion of the Earth. Yet they have all consistently and continually yielded a velocity for the Earth of exactly ZERO mph.

The toil of thousands of exasperated researchers, in the extremely varied experiments of Arago, De Coudre's induction, Fizeau, Fresnell drag, Hoek, Jaseja's lasers, Jenkins, Klinkerfuess, Michelson-Morley interferometry, Lord Rayleigh's polarimetry, Troughton-Noble torque, and the famous 'Airy's Failure' experiment, all conclusively failed to show any rotational or translational movement for the earth, whatsoever."

Funny, you stole and posted the same exact thing back in 2017:

There too you did not cite the author of these words. Why is that? Why do you continue to plagiarize people? That's probably not the funniest part though. The funny part is that back in 2017 when you copy and pasted someone elses words the above was prefaced with this:

If the earth is at rest, can she still be round? If yes then why, if no then why?

The earth is motionless, there isn't the slightest doubt about that, now since we know for the fact that the earth is at rest, round-earth hypothesis isn't sustainable any more for many reasons.

What happened? You were stealing other people's words back then in support of a flat earth. Then fast forward 3 years and you're still stealing the exact words to support a motionless globe earth. Which is it?

And here I thought that it was about teaching you some physics. ::)
The Challenge is just to be won. The prize is truth and knowledge.

Operation fishbowl is real: I was eye witness to it. Your claim is wrong.
Topic is not your eyesight. If you are not blind, see post #1 about topic.
No, the topic is your affliction with Dunning-Kruger.
See post #1 about topic.

See all the posts that show you are retarded.

So many posts reveal the retardation. And worse still, they reveal that he is in no way a 'safety at sea' expert. If anything is a hoax or a conspiracy, it's that Heiwa is a bonafide, respected maritime engineer. It's kind of shameful really. He made up the money, the challenges and the expertise in the maritime industry. It's all a lie. Sad raelly.

I stumbled upon this today on Digg and am super into infographics so I thought it was worth checking out:

Interview with the Mapmaker
I spoke to the man who designed the QAnon and 5G infographics you’ve seen circulating online.

"Inability to measure something doesn't prove that it doesn't exist."
(It also doesn't prove that it does, but that doesn't help us.)

"Missing" orbital Sagnac effect is simply inability of the current instruments to detect it.
Rotation of the Earth can be measured, it is 15 degrees per hour.
Around the Sun we have much slower angular speed.
To be able to detect the interference we simply need higher frequencies (shorter wavelengths), and different sensitivity band of the detecting components.
The "Missing orbital Sagnac effect" is just missing from the readings.

And I wouldn't even go so far as to use the word "missing". It's unnecessary if it's anything. Why measure something you don't need? This always comes up when we talk about GPS satellites. GPS satellites don't need to measure the orbital Sagnac effect to do their job. A job they do extremely well and very, very accurately without it. GPS satellites need only concern themselves with their relationship to Earth, they care not for their relationship to the Sun. So again, there's no need to read, measure, capture, compute something that is unnecessary for that device to function. Nothing is "missing".

But, yes, I've published a few papers in peer-reviewed journals about my alternative interpretation of the names of places in Croatia.

It's amazing how many people here say "I am not a conspiracy theorist" when trying to spread their conspiracy theories.

Can you give a reference link to the paper you published in a peer-reviewed Journal?  All I see is a web page.
Conspiracy theory is only worth the name if it's explaining something which can be explained without a conspiracy with a conspiracy. Massacres can't be explained without conspiracies.

I don't know if any of my linguistic papers are available on-line. One of them is mentioned here: https://www.radionasice.hr/18-hrvatski-dani-u-sopronu/

You are a conspiracy theorist, and denying it doesn't make it so.

If it was published you will have references to the Journal name and date.  The full paper may not be available but there will be a listing of it.
If I am a conspiracy theorist, then so are you, because you claim there was a conspiracy to cover up a massacre which actually happened.

If you read the short article I linked to, you would have known the journal name and the year.

What even are you talking about?  You're the one claiming all these massacres didn't happen and are all made up conspiracies by various governments and whomever.

And I read the article after Google translated it.  I didn't find any mention of a peer reviewed journal article.  It's like pulling teeth... just give the name of your article, the journal it was published in and the month and year.  It can't be THAT hard to copy/paste the info from a journal you went through the trouble of getting reviewed, accepted and published.
Do you agree with me that, if there were massacres such as Vukovar Massacre, Varivode Massacre and Tiananmen Square Massacre, there were also massive conspiracies making people think they didn't happen? That then there must have been many people colluding to suppress the information about those massacres?

The journal is called Regionalne Studije, number 11 (it's published each year, number 11 was published in 2019). I believe it was September when it got published, but I am not so sure.

I can't quite figure out what your motive is here, your 'schtick', as it were. But are you trying to tease something out of the meta of conspiracy theories?

You posted this parody:

https://atheistforums.org/thread-50241.html

Posted for reasons I don't get.

And from your website: https://flatassembler.github.io/index.html

"I am interested in informatics and linguistics. I also like fighting pseudosciences, and Internet is full of them. I have many times been made to believe them by being bombarded with controversial statements I didn't know how to evaluate. So, I'd like to help others in the same position."

And you seem to be massively active on Quora: https://www.quora.com/profile/Teo-Samarzija

I guess, in short, what is the point you're trying to make by pretending that massacres don't exist?

There are lots of videos from many different vantage points, I just chose a short one.

Quote
Beirut explosion: more than 25 dead and 2,500 wounded, says Lebanon health minister

I read some speculation on Twitter that the explosion was in a fireworks warehouse.

I heard fireworks storage as well, but hard to tell.  I hope everyone nearby ran like hell when they saw the smoke, anyone living there must have known what it was.

There was a clip I saw that was from right across the street and fireworks like big bottle rockets were firing out of the building smashing through the windows before the whole thing blew. I'll try and find the clip.

Quote from: Jura-Glenlivet II
Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan,
Never heard of those things.

Maybe this is precisely the reason why you're having such a hard time with accepting history, because you know nothing of it?
You are saying you have never heard of the conflict in Yemen and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? Do you have any recognition of a couple of World Wars? Khmer Rouge and like atrocities?
