Flat Earth Debate / Re: Round Earthers have the burden of proof.
« on: March 25, 2007, 10:50:24 PM »
The burden of proof applies to anyone who makes a proposition about reality.

The burden of proof is on the party proposing a theory that is contradictory to the generally accepted one among the scientific community.
What if the scientific community is the Flat Earth Society, and that generally accepted theory is one of a flat Earth?

If that were the case, the round earth theory would have the burden of proof. That's not the case though. No modern scientist has published support for the flat earth theory.

If the government is trying to keep people from knowing to truth, then why haven't they done anything to combat the Flat Earth Society?  It would seem like they would, because there are 300,000 members in this society.  Has anyone ever been approached by the government?

I think the prevailing claim is this:
 if the government approached and threatened a member of the society, that person would tell the general public. The government wouldn't want the public to find out something like that, so they do nothing.

Though I doubt the government would have to worry about the public believing a member of the flat earth society when he or she announced that they were threatened by the government. Western society in general, I think, assume anyone in the society is crazy and untrustworthy.
Basically, you don't need to silence someone if no one would listen to them anyway.

Makes sense. Our choices are to either move out to the cosmos, or stay here and:

1. By 2600 CE people will be standing shoulder to shoulder with others, coverering all of the landmass of the Earth, as well as glowing red-hot from electricity usage.

2. The Sun starts to expand as it runs lower on fuel and makes the earth too hot for life in about 500,000,000 years, maybe much earlier.

3. The Sun expands and swallows up the earth after becoming a red giant as it burns heavier and heavier elements to make up for the lack of lighter ones. (1 Billion Years)

4. We kill each other.

To the cosmos!

I'm gonna bet on apocalypse scenarion #4. Maybe not though. I doubt I'll be around for any of those other ones.

clearly on this picture the clowds are curved, sugesting that the earth is, because if the earth was then so would the atmosphere be, the pressure would be formed in the same shape as the earth, thats why the clouds are curved, sorry this isnt a longer doing homework

FEs say that pictures like this are faked, so using them to prove your point is pointless.

When I came across this site it reminded me of the "lesbian chatroom senerio".
Lets say someone makes a lesibian chatroom where homosexual women can chat.
But what happens here is a bunch of guys get this "bright idea" that they will pretend to be women to engage in racy conversations.
As time goes by, horny men have taken over the population and they all become duped by their own joke, still thinking their in the lesbian chatroom.

Here we have a website for the FEers and the curious but instead its been overrun by REers who only want to mock the FE view and think there so clever by registering and preaching to the FE community on how moronic they are.

So I am very much for a FE only section. This should be a place where FEers can come together and the curious can understand FES.

It hasn't been overrun. How many insulting threads can you find outside of "Angry Ranting"? I personally count zero. The round-earthers here are generally here because they are curious, I'd say. Hell, maybe I'm wrong, but that's the vibe I'm getting. The trolls that do come around every so often are banned and their posts are deleted pretty quickly.

On topic. It's pretty neat, I had actually thought we already had transitional fossils. I wonder how the creationists will try to explain this away.

They'll maybe say that God planted those fossils to test our faith.

I read the wikipedia on Breatharianism and was entertained by the fakers, but it talked about some guy that apparently had pretty well stopped eating for like 200 days or something, i found it...odd.

These people seem very cult-like. Maybe that's just my opinion.

....What do you know about the mayans? and also their is alot of science behind it, it's not cult like, I don't see where your coming from.

I mean that people believing that the world will end based on calenders from hundreds of years ago that show no real proof that it will happen seems cult-like.

Quote from: "Anonymous"
All the drug adicts were put through a massive program in which they were made to watch 'propaganda' films which exposed the drugs (primarily opium) in China as a capitalist and colonialist infiltration of China by the west (which indeed it was).  Those few who persisted in their addiction were sent to labor camps.  By the mid-1950's the Chinese opium addiction problem had become non-existent.  Now I am not a fan of the later cultural revolution, but this was a major positive accomplishment.

I gotta say, I don't see propaganda and forced labor as a positive, my friend.

I know it isn't recent by any standards, but have any of you seen Spaceballs? That is one of the funniest movies that I've ever seen.

Flat Earth Q&A / Why spend the money?

Quote from: "bullhorn"
Why do people spend billions on cell phone tones and why do people spend billions on lawn care. Becuase they can.

Governments don't just spend money because they're bored. They're not like people. There would be some sort of very important and at least mildly logical reason behind it. Until you can tell me what that reason might be, I'll find it hard to take your ideas seriously.

Quote from: "Dionysios"
awful  disasters brought upon humanity (like world wars and genocides) which are the effects of flawed philosophies like evolution (the cause)

How does an idea like evolution cause wars and genocide? Please explain this to me.

Quote from:  "Dionysios"
I do not mean by this to go to the extreme and sound like John C. Calhoun (the South Carolina senator and patriarch of the confederates who advocated the spread of slavery to the western american states and who was in fact in the service of the New England puritan August Belmont, the Rothschild's chief agent in antebellum america - all this was at a time when ideologies like Darwins were extremely popular in certain circles)

I think by this, you are trying to imply that all people that believe in evolution are racist. Is that right?

He's enraged, you can tell because that's his sign-off. Enraged people are serious. Also kudos to Cinlef for a good point.

Doesn't evolution take longer than that? Humans only evolved 100,000 years ago. I suppose it's possible though.

Why not? It's only 150 feet tall. There are far taller walls that have been climbed.
