Dogplatter, Gulliver and co make some good points about the impossibility of the atmoplane/layer/sphere not flying off into space in this thread.  How do you counter their arguments?

Ya, fix the link please.

I think the broken link was intentional, as we all know the atmosphere has not left the earth.

It's 8 pages long, but based on the first page I'd say that the REers are failing to take into account two important facts -

1: The Ice Wall is as tall or taller than the atmolayer.

2: Universal Acceleration acts to negate the diffusion of matter (in this case that of the atmolayer). In order for the atmolayer to leak over the Ice Wall, its particles would have to sustain a hypothetical speed greater than that of the Earth, which is a logical impossibility.

The FE atmosphere is denser (colder) at the southern rim. As the earth accelerates into the atmosphere, the atmosphere becomes thinner at the rim.

It would be interesting -- when given molecular sizes and masses, acceleration of the Earth, volume of atmosphere, and pressure at sea level -- to estimate the height of the ice wall needed to contain some 'x' range of pressures for some 'y' amount of time.  If these time and pressure ranges are sufficient to support life I will give the "ice wall contains the atmosphere" theory much more weight.  I don't really want to do that calculation, though.

Err, I say all that because there IS diffusion of the atmosphere over the ice wall, no matter how tall said wall is.

1. This is absurd.
a) dogplatter is arguing for a structure 70 miles (Reference: ou), 78,225 miles long (Reference FE FAQs), and airtight. This is beyond all reasonable engineering.
b) Such a structure would be detected, blocking stars, from hundreds of miles away. It hasn't been.
2. This is wrong.
a) First, the particles in a solution can reach speeds greater than the solution. Please read and understand Brownian motion.
b) Second, in order for the atmosphere to lea, it would need only to move over the edge, not move faster than the edge. Please read and understand velocities and vectors from a secondary school physics text.

If you have questions about any of these points, don't hesitate to ask.

Given perfect conditions, this would be true, but there are local disturbances (weather) which may allow some air to leak out.

Think about this argument: In order for water to evaporate, it has to boil. Hence, it has to be at 100 degrees Celsius (at 1 atmospheric pressure unit). Whence, water at room temperature cannot evaporate, because it doesn't reach 100 degrees Celsius.

Not entirely sure why this thread was locked, so I'm re-opening it pending further explanation by another mod.

Wouldn't thickness relate to ability to withstand pressure more than height? And yes, this would perhaps be a worthwhile endeavour.

Err, I say all that because there IS diffusion of the atmosphere over the ice wall, no matter how tall said wall is. 

It's not the Ice Wall's height which inherently prevents diffusion, it's Universal Acceleration. Once any given particle leaves the atmolayer, it is outside the local area in which Earth-style physics (based loosely on the balance between Universal Acceleration and the air resistance of air also being Accelerated) applies, meaning the Earth would re-collide with it at what is, for the sake of argument, an essentially infinite speed. This makes the vertical escape of any matter to all intents and purposes impossible.

Notice my use of the word SUSTAIN. While in the "solution" of the atmolayer, individual particles could reach non-local speeds marginally higher than the Earth's hypothetical speed.

Some. This would have occured millions of years ago until the atmolayer's volume had been reduced to such an extent that this no longer occured - bear in mind the intense difficulty which particles would have leaving the atmolayer in the first place.

Nope. This explanation defies Special Relativity. The particle that moves over the edge horizontally would be traveling upwards at the exact same upwards speed as the Earth. It would not collide with the Earth as it's over the edge and as it's traveling at the same speed. Your lack of understanding is a real problem here. Maybe you should ask for assistance.

No, it would not. Brownian motion would cause ALL the atmosphere to leak out. You need to contain air not water. Air is much more energetic and prone to escape.

Another phantom locking. I'm guessing the OP is repeatedly closing his own post, but I'll keep unlocking it as long as I'm online.

Once the particle is over the edge and traveling away from the Earth, no amount of acceleration will cause the Earth to catch up with it again. You continue to spout nonsense.

But air particle X has to get itself so that it is no longer vertically aligned with the Earth. I'm saying common sense dictates that this happens infrequently enough that no significant depletion occurs.

Another thing to take into account by the way, and you'll berate me for not bringing this up ealier, is that the Ice Wall's apex is easily one of the coldest points on the planet. Air particles near the edge are moving far slower than they normally would anyway.

It all stacks up to reveal that yes, particles could, theoretically spill over the edge, but cases of this are unlikely enough that the atmolayer does not significantly deplete.

Engineered always implies design, but whatever, enough word games.

There's a robust explanation for the generation of the Ice Wall too - perhaps you'd like to add it to your primer if you think "how was the Ice Wall made" is a viable criticism of FET. The path of the Sun in FET (remember that it cycles above the equator) is such that the North and South "poles" receive the least heat. The Ice Wall is the furthest Earthly point from the Sun - it represents the coldest possible locus which still remains on the Earth's surface, so naturally water there is frozen. There's nothing fanciful about the Ice Wall.

You're actually crying Conspiracy for thread display issues on this site? To think the FEers get accused of foil-hattism.

Anyway, try the search terms "waves" and "obscure". It's the one with the diagrams by yours truly, and started as an attempted attack on the law of natural perspective/a clarification of waves or something.

And stop trying to debunk a 50-mile Ice Wall, I'm not arguing for that and I never have.

I know full well what REers believe about their spherical atmolayer. That link offers nothing in the way of evidence, only a breakdown of what REers believe.

And I know full well that you will not change your stance no matter how many times we prove it.  The atmosphere is much higher then you think.  To say its not is to add a few more million people to the conspiracy.

Once the particle is over the edge and traveling away from the Earth, no amount of acceleration will cause the Earth to catch up with it again. You continue to spout nonsense.

But air particle X has to get itself so that it is no longer vertically aligned with the Earth. I'm saying common sense dictates that this happens infrequently enough that no significant depletion occurs.

Another thing to take into account by the way, and you'll berate me for not bringing this up ealier, is that the Ice Wall's apex is easily one of the coldest points on the planet. Air particles near the edge are moving far slower than they normally would anyway.

It all stacks up to reveal that yes, particles could, theoretically spill over the edge, but cases of this are unlikely enough that the atmolayer does not significantly deplete.
Okay, so I take it that you've given up of the ludicrous "UA catches up with the escaping particle" idea.

Your common sense is faulty. If you understood Brownian motion, you'd quickly understand that the same principle that inflates a balloon means the FE atmosphere will leak out. The air molecules bump into each other, the air moves outward. Air moves from high pressure to low pressure. Over the edge there is no pressure, so air would move other the edge. It's basic science.

Have you proven that experimentally on your own?
Where did you educate the biology, in toulet?

I really can't prevent you from making incorrect inferences. Geology explains the mechanism for the creation of the Atlantic Ocean. An atmospheric container as you described is just another wild idea without explanation.

Engineered always implies design, but whatever, enough word games.

There's a robust explanation for the generation of the Ice Wall too - perhaps you'd like to add it to your primer if you think "how was the Ice Wall made" is a viable criticism of FET. The path of the Sun in FET (remember that it cycles above the equator) is such that the North and South "poles" receive the least heat. The Ice Wall is the furthest Earthly point from the Sun - it represents the coldest possible locus which still remains on the Earth's surface, so naturally water there is frozen. There's nothing fanciful about the Ice Wall.

You fail here since the North Pole doesn't have a mile-high spire of naturally frozen water.
