Flat Earth Debate / Re: James's theory on dinosaurs
« on: May 02, 2012, 04:14:41 PM »
Life always finds a way?  So should I assume the sun is populated with living organisms since life always finds a way?

Yes, I believe you are starting to get the picture, as the latest scientific research has indeed indicated that the Sun is in fact populated with living organisms.

However, the Sun is not the topic at hand; what I meant by my statement that life finds a way, which seems to have attracted considerable attention, is that the dinosaurs, despite their weak swimming, FOUND A WAY to enjoy the pleasures of the ocean.  This they accomplished with the construction of boats, just as we, the inheritors of their terrestrial legacy, have also found a way to enjoy the pleasures of the ocean, despite our weak swimming.

My statement was really a turn of phrase, I do not hold, say, that all life always finds a way to survive.  For example a dead dinosaur, or a dead person, has not found a way to survive.  The dinosaurs as a whole, however, found a way to survive, when they took to the air and their lives became even easier and presumably more carefree and pleasant than when they were the masters of the ocean.

It's a shame that the dinosaurs were not such strong swimmers as science had previously thought, but it is hardly surprising that they made up for it with deftness and industry, so that they were still able to enjoy the pleasures of the ocean.  Life always finds a way!

The Matrix is just another piece of globularist propaganda. It takes place on a round planet.

It is invigorating to see such a renewed interest in my research, and with some great points from both sides.  I cannot thank my colleagues enough for taking up the arguments for the purpose of educating the sceptics.

Other theorists seem to be doing well fielding technical queries, many of which have familiar answers which have occured at length throughout this 6-year research project.  It is a pleasure to see them disseminating the important nuances of this crucial scientific finding.

I would like to raise a few of the conceits I have noticed in the latest posts, on the part of interlocuters who doubt the veracity of this exciting field of study.

Some common preconceptions, which I think deserve questioning:

The Idea of Linear Progress
Living in such a technological age, we are often inclined to think of progress as an increasing linear curve with few setbacks.  However, I argue that enlightenment and knowledge occur not in increasing measure throughout history, but in pockets - rafts if you will - of ephemeral and temporary insight in an ocean of intellectual darkness. When the Library of Alexandria was burned, many important documents were lost for centuries, and the medieval world was plunged into an age of superstition, ignorance and globularism which lasted for almost a thousand years.  I would remind you that the scale of this catastrophe pales in comparison to the near total bombardment of the Earth with asteroids, and it should not surprise us if the technological setbacks to terrestrial animals is accordingly greater.  So - do not imagine that all historical periods before ours have been so many orders of magnitude behind ours in thought and science.

Human Exceptionalism
Really, this is just another form of racism.  All to often I hear the same tirade - "animals can't do this, animals can't do that" - however, just because they don't live in houses there really is no reason to smear animals as crude or ignorant brutes.  Many animals are adept tool users, and can solve a multitude of problems which are really not so different from our own (feeding ourselves, finding a mate, escaping predators) - the sorts of problems which in fact, our own technologies singularly focus on accomplishing.  Otters, for example, routinely break open shellfish with stone implements during their long fishing trips on the open ocean.  Are you capable of opening shellfish whilst swimming in the middle of the ocean?  Probably not as capable as an otter.  And probably not as capable as a dinosaur either.

Pessimism About the Ocean/Fear of Boats?
A common line of argument which occurs in discussions of this nature is that crossing the ocean is far too difficult for a dinosaur to accomplish.  People who think this, I fear, are projecting their own insecurities about boating onto the noble dinosaur.  It is true, the sea is not for everybody - but that is no reason to shrug your shoulders and declare ocean crossings impossible.  Building boats is actually very easy and fun, and so is navigating them.  Do not let your own hatred of sailing and the water cloud your honest assessment of the possibility of getting over the sea.


I hope these insights are helpful.  Overcoming the cognitive biases which I have outlined ought to help readers address the problem in a whole new light.

Flat Earth Believers / Re: Curious Penguin Discussion
« on: March 23, 2012, 12:51:56 AM »
I believe the discovery of a fossil "penguin" only serves to highlight some major problems in the field of cladistics.  The notion that the animal which once inhabited the skeleton in question is related to a particular modern subset of animals is highly speculative on the part of the scientists who have discovered it.  I think it is more appropriate to classify this animal as a dinosaur than as a penguin.  Based on the images provided, it shares many characteristics with dinosaurs.  The crux of my argument, perhaps, is that we ought to be wary of conventional cladistics in dealing with the corpses of long extinguished beasts.

Flat Earth General / Re: Since when is there a conspiracy?
« on: March 13, 2012, 09:43:03 AM »
There have been many iterations of the Globularist Conspiracy, the most recent of which is the Conspiracy surrounding space travel. But there was also a conspiracy which was involved in the murder of Scott of the Antarctic, and other key Flat Earth whistleblowers throughout history.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: 32 mile sun - energy problem?
« on: March 13, 2012, 09:40:11 AM »
I should also add that this is why many animals have taken the decision to sleep in holes under the ground naturally; if it were really so warm up in the sky, they would build towers instead.

« on: March 13, 2012, 09:38:51 AM »
The Sun does not really emit very much heat at all, not nearly as much as globularists have claimed.  There is a great deal of heat which comes up through the Earth itself.

This is demonstrated by submission to simple direct experimentation:  just try the difference between sleeping up on top of the Eiffel Tower, or digging yourself a warm sleeping hole at ground level.  This experiment works with most towers which do not have central heating.

Well said Thork, you are quite right that Neptune is at best a wild fantasy and at worst a malicious globularist hoax.  There is no such body in the sky; it was fabricated as a ploy by Newtonian fundamentalists to "prove" the existence of gravity, which modern science has shown to be a farcical lie.

No number of fuzzy pictures of coloured blobs will substantiate the bizarre myth of Neptune.  I might just as well take a photograph of a Malteser and claim it was a planet.

I do not worship any gods, but have a healthy respect for the Moon. This relation is more one of fear than of worship, however.  I like the Sun, but I would not say I worship that either.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: The Moon - Clear evidence of a round Earth
« on: February 26, 2012, 06:59:34 PM »
Having an upside-down photograph of the Moon may be a result of operator error, and not necessarily a discrepancy with the Moon in Australia.  When light enters an aperture through a photographic lens and is projected through, the image is inverted, so when taking "snaps" it is necessary to flip the resulting image 180 degrees to correct it to the standards of the human eye.  Many modern cameras do this automatically.  However, since your friend has been using an old camera, and developing his own film rolls in a custom dark room (and may I be the first to say that I admire his dedication in this regard), he may have forgotten this crucial photographic step.  No doubt your U.S. photographs were created using modern cameras, which correct for the photographic aperture's natural inversion of images.

I believe that if you were to repeat this process and take care to account for the manner in which light passes through the aperture (and the 180 degree inversion which occurs), you would see that the Lunar images were in fact in concordance.

Since the Moon is flat, the images should align very clearly.  I hope this message is helpful in explaining your topsy-turvy Moon problem.


I have included the above diagram to help explain this bizarre principle of optics.  Sometimes, the truth is stranger than fiction!  The object in the example is a tree; but of course one can with little imagination extend this notion to the Moon and other objects as well.

Flat Earth General / Re: What about dinosaurs and continental drift?
« on: February 26, 2012, 06:32:00 PM »
Continental drift is a completely nonsensical theory, from the imaginations of the wildest globular geologists.

Passing similarity between various coastlines demonstrates nothing about their origins.  Suppose I were walking in the forest and found a tree trunk which I could fit my head into.  Would that be good reason to suspect that my face and the tree were once conjoined?  The answer is no.

I challenge you to provide any firm evidence that the land masses of the Earth were once part of a single homogenous continent; I am confident sufficient evidence is not forthcoming.

I suspect there may be many Suns, with many strange trajectories beyond the bounds of our current understanding.

Beyond the icy bounds of the Southern Circle, lies a vast circular ocean, and beyond that the forbidden continent, Antichtone; any ship or plane will reach the Aether Screen and go around this landmass by accident.  Admiral R. Byrd discovered that Antichtone/Atlantis had lakes, forests, mammoths and hills covered with vegetation, far inland - exactly what was seen by the Nazis during their 1938-1939 expedition.

There are vast tunnels under the Earth; some of these lead beyond the Ice Wall. Alexander the Great and his armies made use of these tunnels; so did the Nazis in many of their campaigns. This is the only way to reach Antichtone, and it is why many mammoth fossils are found in vast caverns under ground, whereas modern elephant remains tend to scatter themselves over the open plains of Africa.


I must thanks my esteemed colleague, November 17, for enlightening me as to the tunnel complexes used by Alexander; I have synthesised this research with the findings of the venerable Levee, in providing my synoptical answer to your questions.

I am able to peer above the lofty peaks of the Ice Wall, because I am standing on the shoulders of giants.

Also one method of calculating the distance of stars is by measuring its relative position in the sky at one point in the year, then measuring it again 6 months from that point. Using trigonometry, we are able to get a very accurate measurement of how distant the star is from us.

No, we can't. Trig requires the length of at least one side of the triangle. What's generally used is called parallax, which is accounted for.

This method does provide the length of one side of the triangle. It's the distance between the earth at one point in its orbit and the other. This is a known length, at least reasonably accurately.

It rests on a faulty assumption - that the Earth has an orbit.

I have performed many experiments to prove this very point. Tape your thumb and index finger together, and your middle and ring fingers together, and see what wonders you yourself can accomplish without opposable thumbs.  At a lecture I delivered in 2006, I demonstrated this concept vividly. With my hands securely in "Dino-Mode", I proceeded to write on a blackboard in a fluid, clear hand; I also used a number of DIY utensils including a hammer.

Opposable thumbs have been proven by the most up-to-date science as non-mandatory components of advanced motor function.

Given the woefully small percentage of all dinosaurs which ever lived having been preserved by fossilisation, why would we have any reason to suspect that the comparatively small number of boats they would have used might be found by modern excavators?
Since dinosaurs are still here and, as you've claimed, still building boats, you should have every reason to expect these boats to be all about.

I was referring to boats built by prehistoric dinosaurs. However, you are correct that many modern dinosaurs still engage in boat-building on a recreational scale (the great galleons of prehistory have been rendered obsolete since most dinosaurs gained the power of flight).

Here is photographic evidence of a modern dinosaur travelling in a coracle it has build for itself, much as its ancient ancestors also did.

I was about to come here and post brother Bullhorn's critically acclaimed expose on the fallacies of globularist mathematics; I am glad that the man himself has beaten me to the punch.

If globularists operate with a flawed concept of addition, how on Earth can they hope to explain the lofty trajectories of the firmament? These fundamental errors are at the heart of mistaken Newtonian ideologies.

54
My Brothers,

Do not listen to the shameful smears of users such as Irushwithscvs and Clocktower, who will do anything to put down a respectable man of science such as myself.  These men are globular fantatics to the core, they do not seek the renunciation of globularist lies and would prefer to celebrate the false Round Earth year.

I urge you to join me in my quest against Globularist festivals.

Regards,
James

Plate Tectonic Believers constantly harp on about how we find the same species of dinosaur on one coast and another coast on the opposite side of the ocean. Yet we find human fossils and remains (and indeed, modern, living humans) on the opposite sides of those same coasts. If humans managed to travel across without walking over some antediluvean supercontinent, why couldn't dinosaurs??

It is not my fault, Clocktower, if you cannot stomach the white-hot frontiers of science which my colleagues and I have charted for the first time throughout the last half-decade. This is the future of scientific discovery.

58
Do not presume to know where the Sun is going. Mankind will pay for its gross hubris. The concept of a year is not shared with anyone except the most brazen globularist; it is founded on the false belief that the Earth flies around the Sun.

59
The ocean floor is made from rock, and atop this rock is a great body of water. This water is visible from my window. It is a commonplace of rational knowledge that water when sufficiently cold freezes, and the geographical inner limits of the Ice Wall correlate almost perfectly with the path of the Sun as it travels above the Earth in a wide circle.

You are therefore partly correct that there are rocks UNDER the Ice Wall, but what is under the Ice Wall is definitionally not the Ice Wall. Above what is under the Ice Wall, is the ice which is the Ice Wall.

Experimentation is at the very heart of Flat Earth science, it is the bread and butter of Zetetic Investigation.

The Flat Earth renaissance of the 19th Century was entirely attributable to the rigorous and extensive empirical investigation of field-scientists such as Samuel Rowbotham, John Hampden and William Carpenter.

Since that time, prior experiments have been iteratively reperformed as well as a host of new ones devised - experimentation is far more important to Flat Earth scientists than it ever has been to Theoretical Round Earth physicists.
