However, why would the government try to cover the information up?


Obviously Americans need constant reminding...there is more than one government in the world.


True, but how many governments have actually sent men into space or sent ships to the antarctic? I think countries such as landlocked African countries would not actually need to be in on the conspiracy, they would believe the Earth is flat because all the other governments appear to believe so.

cheesejoof many of these contrys are the porrest contries in the world, they wouldnt care what shape the earth is.

yes its called a geosincrinos orbit (sorry for the spelling i had a dyslexic moment) the orbit is degrading constantly but the speed it is traveling keeps it from slamming ino the earth, this is why we dont slam into the sun.

The moon is not in a geosynchronous orbit; its orbital period is about 28 siderial days (as opposed to 1, which is the definition of a geosynchronous orbit.)

on a hot day it might warm up by 0.000...1 degree f


No no no no no, I meant why would you have to see the water as steam, not why don't oceans steam.

Why?

On a humid day you don't see all the extra moisture as steam do you?

The dust thing fails: let the ship receede until it is only just no longer visibile, presumably due to dust.  Climb a tall tower.  By Pythagoras, the distance between you and the ship has increased, and thus so has the amount of dust.  And yet, the ship suddenly reappears.

-Erasmus


Oh oh I know, try this on for size: It's not dust particles, it's moisture in the air, there's more moisture directly over the ocean than there is higher up, so when you climb the tower you're looking over the top of it so you can see farther.

So far FE has yet to come up with a convincing explanation as to why ships appear to sink over the horizon(mabey they shrink-grim). The best response is to ask for actualy proof of this event, eg a video of this actually happening.

yes but the FEers will say oooo its fake and you cant prove its not- bitch bitc bitch seriously every shread of proof against the woruld being a sphere is a doctored picture of part of a conspisy.

Things that are far enough away from the earth are not affected by the earth's gravity. This is why the moon doesn't crash into us.


This is pretty much... wrong.  The moon doesn't crash into us because it's moving.  The Earth's gravity *does* effect the moon, quite significantly in fact -- it keeps it from flying off into space.  Like the way the sun's gravity keeps the Earth from flying off into space.

Technology, Science & Alt Science / Moon landings information
« on: March 31, 2006, 07:01:23 AM »
Quote from: "REcarl"
You have to remember that the US and Russia were racing to get to the moon.  No one would have loved to prove the US moon landings as an elaborate hoax more than the Russians.  Wouldn't they have been able to expose it if it were faked??  That was one of the only reasons we went to the moon, to beat Russia to it.  And the Russians never seemed to even hint that the landings were fake.  They kept a close watch on our progess and were able to determine that the mission was legit.  So if they can accept the landings, why can't (some of) our own people?

because some people refuse to belive anything there told -grim

The main one was:

"Denying debate proves this"

Hm...I suppose if we told him the Earth was flat, and he refused to debate us, then the Earth would be proved to be flat...

The only semi-intelligent comment on that site was

"A mother and baby are the same age, as a 1 day old baby has a 1 day old mother"(mabey in a pratchet book -grim)

Which is strangely similiar to a Koan I've heard.

Okay, I've given it a day or so.  You tell the person in room N to move to room 2*N; now you have infinitely many vacant rooms, but people die from exhaustion on their way to them.  Problem solved!

Like I said, we're not worrying about exhaustion, or any of those other pesky inconveniences.

Well, you were able to accomodate the bus, but just as luck would have it, another bus with an infinite number of people pulls into the driveway.  You think, "No problem."  As it turns out, there is a convention in town, and this isn't the only bus.  In fact, there is an infinite number of busses, each with an infinite number of people.  How will you get all these people into your hotel?

so tell them to got to the top floor(a hotel with an infinte number of rooms) probelem sloved of course make them pay up front, as they would die of old age on the 100000000th floor assuming they were born on the 20th or higher floor

Moderators are chosen by the administration. There aren't any specific requirements. The primary basis for their selection is need. If and when a need arises, potential candidates are evaluated and we decide who we feel is the right person(s) for the position.

No but seriously, we take a list of the members and throw darts at it.


Is the list of the members that you throw darts at in the shape of a flat earth with the members names on the different continents where they live :?:  :lol:

Thats what i said early, as there is an infinte gap between rooms so unless you had a device that would instantanitusly transport people, if not then there would be no way the get to the outliying rooms.-grim


Er no, there would never be an infinite gap.  There would be arbitrarily large gaps, but each would be finite, and so would take only finite time to get from the starting point to the finishing point.  Not a problem, really.  Just cryogenically freeze the people for whom it will take, say, 50 years or more for them to reach their room.

But again, as Pesto mentioned, that sort of difficulty is not really the crux of the problem.  What we're really doing is demonstrating an interesting feature of infinite sets: you can take a proper subset of them -- that is, you can remove elements -- and the size of the set will not have changed.  You do thing by putting the elements in a one-to-one correspondence.  In the case of the hotel, for example, the one-to-one correspondence is N<-->2N.  The fact that you can do that shows that there's the same number of even integers as there are positive integers, which is kinda counterintuitive.

Another interesting result, along the same lines, is that there are the same number of real numbers between 0 and 1 as there are real numbers in total.  I'll let you try to put these numbers in a one-to-one correspondence with all real numbers.  The next one to try after that is that there are the same number of rational numbers (numbers of the form a/b, where a and b are integers and b is not 0) as there are postive integers.  Next, and hardest, is that there are more real numbers than there are positive integers: you do that by showing that if you put positive integers and real numbers in a one-to-one correspondence, you'll have some real numbers left over, always.  The reason that's cool is it shows that there is more than one infinity, and that some infinities are larger than others.  Mind-blowing.

the probelm with cryogenics is when you unfreeze them the water will expand thus making the person go pop-grim

So, how does one "magnet" grow stronger than the others periodically?


Er, the strong one gets tired, and another one takes over?  Like bike racing, or bird migration?

Or, it could be the magnetic material is part of a more fluid portion of the Earth.  RE theory proposes that the mantle can flow, and also supports the notion of continental drift.  Magnetic drift could work in a similar fashion: there's a layer of magnetic material underground that shifts around very slowly.

Hm... I like the bird migration analogy better :)

-Erasmus

and a magnet gets tired how exactly?

well that isnt very hard to figure out, is it?
you do a hard days work, you become tired.(sarcasum is the lowest form of wit-grim)

Easy as that  :D

Quote from: "Erasmus"

For one thing, why are you willing to trust what your eyes tell you, but not what a history book tells you?  Turns out your brain translates the world into experience in a fairly obtuse fashion.  Not everything you see is real, and not everything that is real is visibile to you.


That's true. I mean, think of optical illusions. Your eyes appear to tell you one thing, but the truth is actually another. Now history books, which are usually based on witness accounts(Yes but some times no scratch that, most of the time these sources a bias think of hitlers speeches bias, campain posters bias, anything that say 'we will win because we a superior' or somthing along those lines bias-grim), historical documents, photographics evidence(although photographs can be doctored before those were invented it was paintings and paintings cant be changed once there painted-grim), etc and are checked for mistakes by editors and are widely agreed with by the majority of people, should surely be considered just as reliable as your eyes.

The point there is if you can trust your eyes why not the eyes of others.

If you're fourteen, then it's not too late to learn as many new thing as possible, such as patience and diligence, correct spelling and punctuation, a wider vocabulary, and the use of this forum's Search feature, which revealed  this thread to me.

Believe me, being fourteen is a transient blessing(ahh but is being tired, lazy and living in an area full of chavs?-grim).  Use the time wisely.
