Unless one connection is underground.

It has to be done on paper/2D. (You could use paint).

Dotted line.

That's it!
I'll ring the government and tell them to perforate all important power and water lines!

I before E, except after C.

i before e
except after c
but we live in a weird society

Or,
I before E, except after C
as long as the sound is 'EEEE'

Or,
i before e
except after c
or when sounding like "ay"
as in neighbor or weigh
their, weird and either,
foreign, seize and neither,
leisure, forfeit and height
are exceptions spelled right

Or

I before E
except after C
or just look in a dictionary

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: And you beleive the earth is flat WHY?
« on: January 28, 2009, 11:12:43 AM »
Just out of curiosity, how is it, if the earth is flat, that the sun sets at different times in different parts of the world? We'd all be able to see the sun at the same time otherwise. eg.
                                          Sun
                                           /|\
                                          / | \
_____________________________Flat Earth_______________________________
As you can see, all thee locations receive light at the same time, meaning we'd all be able to see the sun.
_________________________________Flat Earth____________________________________________________
                                                            |
                                                            |
                                                          Sun
Now no-one can see the sun and it's night the whole world round- sorry FLAT. However, we don't all see the sun at the same time, Australians, for instance, can see the sun when the British can't. Therefore the theory that the Earth is flat is impossible. I have read the FAQ, so don't point me to it to try and get away from the fact that your theory is retarded.

If you read the FAQ, you'd realise where you are wrong.

The sun is an unmoving object

News to me.

Your parents just haven't told you the truth yet.

When you were three, you believed in the easter bunny and Santa claus.

As you grew up and matured, your parents told you the truth.

Obviously, you haven't matured enough to be told the truth about FE yet.


You're not a very nice person you know, something tells me I have more friends than you :) Oh and:

"Obviously, you haven't matured enough to be told the truth about FE yet."

Funniest thing I've heard all day.


Thank you.

You do know you just said that every adult on earth tells their son the big scary secret of FE when there old enough? Thats a few billion people to pay of from the government....

To be honest, I would find it extremely hard to lie to myself and hold it as one of my main views. I think all that denial of the truth would really get to me after a while.

It must be tough to be a FEer.

Lots of flatness for a very long way.

And then nothing....hmm....
Is it because the horizon is higher up than where the photo was taken, or because the Earth is curved?

Venus: I think when it's closest to the sun, which is most of the time, it's not visible.  Sometimes it breaks just far enough away that you can see it.



Scientists have observed that Venus passes the sun in pairs of passes 8 years apart, then doesn't pass again for over a century. It last passed the sun on June 8 2004, and will do it again in 2012, and then wont pass again in the 21st century. There were none in the 20th Century.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: The principle of simplicity.
« on: January 21, 2009, 02:26:30 PM »
Well, no. I don't agree with that. I stated that it's simpler for me to build rocket from scratch than Personal Computer. And rockets can fly to space, so it's simpler to build machine that flies to space than some electronic device that sits in some corner of your home.

So you're saying that it's simpler for you to build a rocket ship that can travel to space than it is to not build a rocket ship that can travel to space?  :o


Let's consider this idiotic post.

Tom, which is easier?

Driving a spike through your leg using only your tongue, or moving objects by looking at them?

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Take a close look at the Lunar Lander
« on: January 19, 2009, 02:49:03 PM »
If I were to build a Lunar Lander, I'd use papery materials for the walls etc. There's no wind on the moon, so it would be fine. I can't remember the exact figures, and I can't find any online, but I've read -and any idiot would come to the logical conclusion- that a huge amount of fuel is needed every time you increase the weight of a rocket by a tiny amount. So yes, light materials that a sceptic may call tinfoil, but I would say it's more likely to be similar to that foil-type material that you can take when you go camping when it's cold, that's very insulating and light. And it DOES it exist; I possess some, as many, many people do.

For a boat to disappear due to perspective, it would have to be a lot further away than when boats disappear when they sail away from you. And yes, these boat have half disappeared horizontally, but haven't vertically.....

Also, would this see-saw effect not make precariously placed objects fall on a twice-daily basis? I mean very precarious objects (for example one of those tall towers of coins people can make, where one side is placed on sideways?)

I shall lurk how I please, my boy. There are different ideas as to what shape the sun is. And why shouldn't there be, we can't work out the shape of our own planet!

In FE, the sun is a disc that is always above the Earth, and moves in a circle.

And it pulls you outward, not inward.
That would be the fictitious centrifugal force.

lol, I missed that post, you just threw FE'ers credability back a couple dozen feet, ANYBODY, can prove centrifical force.

I'm afraid that centrifugal force is a 'real' force, as it essentially no force at all. Imagine an ant was in space on a ball. If you span the ball, the ant would be forced in a straight line, and, as nothing is stopping it, continues in a straight line, and would be thrown off the circle, because the circle isn't straight.

Besides what keeps the other planets in oue galaxy if the Sun is circling the earth and going UP with earth and the moon.

They travel with the UA. Gravity doesn't exist in FE, and therefore there would be no reason for the other planets to orbit the sun.

Which gives rise to the idea that perhaps proving any orbit that isn't the moon would disprove FE? eg if Mars was viewed to have a circular pattern around the sun?
Not that I have the time/money/resources/energy to actually, like, try an experiment or something.

When I first came upon this forum I posted questions like this, but now I can see why it's slightly annoying...
Don't get me wrong, I firmly believe in RE, but if it's not in the FAQ, have a look around and see what you can find on the subject.
I'm not saying anyone's right or wrong but remember you're not the first person to stumble over this site and find it ridiculous!

Have fun looking round, and gradually caring less and less what people say, and more about people who say 'This is stupid!'
Because that's what happened to me....

« on: January 11, 2009, 11:20:31 AM »
I've stood at a point near my house in the Midlands in England and watched the sun set from there. It appeared to set exactly as it usually does, yet the next highest point in that direction is somewhere in North-Western Europe, at least 300 miles away. I don't really know what effect this would have on Rowbotham's theory, but would it still hold up to that?

The one thing that really stops me from believing that NASA pay people to keep quite is that, out of everyone they bribe, wouldn't at least one have some form of morality?

The bribing idea suggests that most people who need bribing dont mind about blinding 6 billion people to truth.

So there would be an intense vertical beam of light which hasn't been bent, at noon, surrounded by a much dimmer donut of light.
...can't say i've ever seen that

No, there wouldn't. The vertical rays would not bend at all, those slightly away from vertical would bend by only a tiny bit, those slightly further away would bend by a tiny bit more, etc. The beam of light would remain contiguous.

This suggests to me that the light coming straight down is subjected to different conditions to the light coming off at angles... why would the light coming straight down not curve? Does air do different things if you come down through it perpendicular to Earth?
