##### Flat Earth Q&A / Disproving old Rowbatham
« on: August 05, 2006, 07:26:35 AM »
Read the Wikipedia take on my suggestion and I think you'll find it makes sense http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atmospheric_refraction.

I love how you reject all viable and correct disproving of your theory, it keeps me chuckling away and it's what keeps me on these forums.

Post me the formulae necessary for calculating angle change with respect to change in density and the figures for the density diminishment of the atmosphere with respect to increase in distance from the centre of the earth and then I'll do your maths for you.

The maths is absolutely unnecessary, the curve of the earth over a 6km distance would be so small, refraction would easily make up for it.

Read my post titled "Disproving Rowbatham" (yes i misspelled Rowbotham). This explains why Rowbotham saw what he did when trying to prove that the Earth is flat.

After finally being bothered to read Rowbotham's experiments, I found a fatal flaw in his logic. As you well know, the atmosphere gets thinner the further up you go. You may also know that when light enters a less dense medium, it bends away from the normal. The defraction caused by the atmosphere would not be able to keep up with the curvature of the earth but it would easily make up for about a 15 mile view of an object.

##### Flat Earth Q&A / The Flat Earth = Creationism

Well said. To add to what he said, I would like to know the FE view on comets.

##### Flat Earth Q&A / solar eclipse?
« on: August 03, 2006, 01:52:28 PM »
I'm not sure but I believe i skim read something along the sides of dark masses passing in front of the sun causing an eclipse (correct me if I'm wrong). But this wouldn't explain how eclipses can be predicted.

##### Technology, Science & Alt Science / Time Travel
« on: August 03, 2006, 01:50:37 PM »
I also thought into that. But if one changed the past, ones experiences would change as well so memory of doing so would not exist because you would be under the assumption that that is the way things have been therefor no reason exists to do it again. But now I'm into paradoxs so I'll be silent.

##### Technology, Science & Alt Science / Time Travel
« on: August 03, 2006, 01:40:46 PM »
I believe that time travel is possible but not advisable (this is my personal opinion and is by no means an accepted fact). Imagine the universe as a vessel that travels along a line (time). If I were to jump back further down the line, there would be nothing there as the universe has already moved on from that position in time, leaving you stranded in nothingness, you would essentially be a new vessel on that position on the time line.

##### Flat Earth Q&A / Media on space
« on: August 03, 2006, 01:12:31 PM »
FE belief is that you're right, thats why the space program is a phoney.

It would be different to see a flat earth presented in movie although it probably wouldn't work because the earth would accelerate away from the reference frame of the person on the ship leaving them stranded.

##### Flat Earth Q&A / sun
« on: August 03, 2006, 12:59:07 PM »
FE belief is that it is an optical illusion probably played on by defraction or some other property of light.

FEers, if you ever play a game which involves space travel, for example Halo as I am playing it right now, does it annoy you that the universe is depicted the RE way or do you not think twice?

##### Flat Earth Q&A / How did the ice wall form?
« on: August 03, 2006, 12:42:19 PM »
Yes but why a wall shape?

Ok a little off topic now so back to my original question.
How did the ice wall form?

Actually there's only 1 turtle and 4 elephants. Most FEers don't believe that anyway.

Just curious.

Although I disagree completely with you, I have to commend you for having an answer to most holes poked at your beliefs.

##### The Lounge / Pirates

It was ok, the plot line seemed a bit erratic.

52
##### Flat Earth Q&A / Okay, serious question time.
« on: August 03, 2006, 12:02:04 PM »
One reason is the FE opinion on global warming, they believe global warmnig will melt the  ice wall and the atmosphere will leak into space.

What is the general FE opinion on Pirates of the Carrabean 2?

Rob they think the atmosphere is only 150ft high therefore planes don't work.

The expression 'innocent until proven guilty' can be adapted to suit this argument.

Yeah, what is Tariq doing?

Do you have any proof that they are faked?

Oh I used the whole freezer, took the shelves out and stuff, just about enough room and yeah its one block.

Hey guys, I'm the one that built the ice wall. In my defense I think I did a damn fine job.
