If there really was an Ice Wall
« on: February 21, 2007, 04:10:23 PM »
Wouldn't it have been a tourist spot by now?

I mean, I can see how the government would make more money out of the tourism they would get then, as opposed to a conspiracy (I still don't understand how money is involved there, btw).

Aye or nay?

Nay. You think that tourism money to the Ice Wall (keep in mind how many people go to Antarctica for tourism--very few) would exceed the amount of money put into "space exploration?" Do you know how much money, really, that NASA alone is receiving from the US government? $16.8 Billion USD PER YEAR!

Yeah, but why would they lie about the shape of the earth.
Would saying that the earth is flat give them less funding? I don't think so.
I think it would actually make a stir and give them more funding, because it would stir people's curiosity.
I know it would mine, if NASA said the earth was flat.

And you compare the ice wall to the Antarctica. Well, I have seen lots of footage of people in Antarctica, doing experiments and shit. Funny enough, I've never seen any at the ice wall.

More funding for what?  Space exploration?  Satellites?

Well, that depends. How much are you saying they would charge for the Ice Wall trips? If everyone in the US went (301,197,000 in a recent estimate), and they charged a hundred dollars per trip, it would still only be about $300 Billion dollars, and that's of course over the course of years, probably. After that, you pretty much lose business. Who would want to go to see the Ice Wall a second time, anyways? So basically, instead of getting a crapload of money from tourism at once and then profits dwindling, they keep the profits at a standard which is INCREASING. That makes more sense to me.

Also, you must have missed the point of other factors which can play into it other than money.

Tourist spots usually don't perform well in areas that can reach temperatures as low as -187.4. C.

Because if it were possible to get a craft into space by simply dropping it off the Ice Wall, NASA wouldn't have an excuse to put billions of dollars of "research" into rocket designs.

Also, if the shape of the world were revealed public outcry would lead to NASA either being replaced, or forced to do real research. Less money in the Conspiracy's pocket either way.

And please don't listen to Tom Bishop. His theories are not supported by most Flat Earthers.

Where is your evidence to support your claim of such temperature?

An ice wall that debunks all of astronomical history? I can imagine oodles of scientists wanting to take a look at it.

You can't just "drop" out of the earth's orbit and call it "space travel", design and planning would still come into play.

there is this thing called "the next generation". no individual lives forever, but generation goes on. therefore, they won't lose business from thinking that no one would come twice to the ice wall as a tourism spot. but, good try though ;)
GPS does not require satellites, fortunately it uses it.

Acutally, there is a casino resort IN the arctic circle, founded and maintained by the same company in Iceland who own and operate a luxury hotel ($500 per night, per person, per room) made ENTIRELY out of ice that they carve by hand. I have stayed in it. This aforementioned resort made of ice only exists during certain months of the year, and only caters to those with an annual reservation, because it is carved all over again each freeze season.

The resort in the Arctic Circle is made of Ice as well, but is permanent because of the climate.

This is not a joke, look it up.
My problem with his ideas is that it is a ridiculous thing.

Genius. PURE, undiluted genius.

bold emphasis mine

If only it were possible to punch someone through the internet; I would punch you in the face so damn hard...

Look, dumbass (O NOES, AD HOMINEM ::) ). Whether or not you believe we have the ability to go to space, NASA is doing very real research in a multitude of fields. Not just space exploration. NASA research is responsible for many advancements in the commercial airline industry for just one example. Maybe you should do some research of your own before you go making asinine statements that make you look like a bigger ass than you already appear to be.

Please. In the future, if you don't know what you're talking about STFU.

I wouldn't pay to see a big glaciar.

According to the "icewall" trip there are stars out and below the earth.  Assuming his trip wasn't faked/photoshopped.

Yeah, but think about the scientists - the scientists, man!
We're not talking about only ONE generation of scientists, we're talking about all scientists (plus some bonus rich guys who have nothing to do with theit money)!

How many of those scientists would be curious enough to take the trip?
A good many, I'd wager.

I just assumed that the stars were only overhead. Does this mean they're surrounding the flat earth (e.g. a sphere or a dome)?

In any case if there were stars that would just make it more boring, you may as well just lie on your back and look up.
