Their budget is $16.4 billion per year.

Actually, I think it's $16 750 300 000 for 2007.  And it increases by a small amount every consecutive year.

Therein lies the problem.

Occam's razor:

Occam's razor (also spelled Ockham's razor) is a principle attributed to the 14th-century English logician and Franciscan friar William of Ockham. The principle states that the explanation of any phenomenon should make as few assumptions as possible, eliminating, or "shaving off," those that make no difference in the observable predictions of the explanatory hypothesis or theory.

This is often paraphrased as "All things being equal, the simplest solution tends to be the best one." In other words, when multiple competing theories are equal in other respects, the principle recommends selecting the theory that introduces the fewest assumptions and postulates the fewest hypothetical entities. It is in this sense that Occam's razor is usually understood.


- Wikipedia.  FE = really complicated conspiracy.  RE = no conspiracy at all.  Which one is simpler?
NOTICE:
I believe the Earth is round, and anything I say that suggests the contrary is stated for the spirit of debate.

I became an Flat Earth proponent by doing the following:
...

Wrong Tom. I contend that you came to believe that the Earth was flat because you wanted to believe that the Earth was flat. Anyone who performs the Earth Not A Globe experiments and, from them, comes to the conclusion that the Earth is flat is either scientifically blind or a moron. Half of the proofs in that book are blatantly incorrect and the other half less blatantly incorrect but completely wrong nonetheless.
Quote from: Kasroa
Tom usually says at this point that people have seen the ice-wall. It is the Ross Ice Shelf. That usually kills the conversation by the power of sheer bull-shit alone.

Well that explains Tom's case.

Most of the Earth Not A Globe experiments are perfectly good ones, but the unfortunate thing for Tom is they demonstrate the Earth's "rotundity".
