Yes. I'm tired and I have to be up in time to watch the budding young engineers get plunged into the freezing water of the rapids. And have a picnic.

You certainly implied there wasn't enough money to go around for SOME reason. I guessed that it was the number of people you think are involved. My apologies for (mis-?)interpreting your ambiguous statement.
It was not an ambiguous statement, it was a general statement.

You try accomplishing the task of worldwide GPS with low altitude pseudolites or antennae and see how much it costs compared to a satellite based one.

That's silly.. DARPA is researching the technology right now because satellite launches are so expensive. I don't think they are looking for more expensive options. If they only knew NASA has already got the technology, think of the money DARPA would save!

I've already made a post about that. If satellite launches are cheaper, that means less money per satellite for NASA.

More importantly, there is GPS which would have to be part of the conspiracy. Without orbitting satellites you're restricted to antennae, pseudolittes, and magic. All of which don't cover the distance that a satellite does. Someone here suggested a 4000:1 ratio of pseudolites to satellites. IF his data is true, then that would be a giant cost to get running. For antennae, its the same. You have to pay workers enough to keep their mouths shut, even if they're not in on the conspiracy, and they have to cover most of the earth with them.

THEN they have to pay the few workers they have giant sums of cash to keep them quiet. Then they might have to pay a country that is just joining the space race so they don't squeal. Then they gotta stage all these launches. Then they have to imitate satellites by somehow providing satellite internet, satellite TV, and satellite phone service.

The list goes on. You add up all that cost with the pittance they get now, and the constantly decreasing funding... and it looks like the conspiracy falls apart. Now THATS silly.

How can we know what kind of technology the conspiracy is capable of?

Possibly not that much.  I'm sure intimidation is part of their repertoire.
Quote

I think they all just get incorporated into the conspiracy.
Quote

It's already been covered that such stagings would be far less expensive than the launching themselves.
Quote
Then they have to imitate satellites by somehow providing satellite internet, satellite TV, and satellite phone service.
Once again, we have no idea the technology the conspiracy is capable of.

Not really.  Nothing you've said here makes the conspiracy theory look the least bit implausible.

Whats more plausible? A small group of secretive people keeping the true shape of the earth secret, staging launches and technologies that can't exist, making up stories just for shits and giggles, and collecting all this money to somehow develop secret technologies that are so advanced that appear to be majic and yet STILL make a profit....

or....


the earth is round like we've seen time and time again?


The reason the conspiracy is so implausible is because it'd need to be so big, with so little people supporting it, it just wouldn't work. It's way more plausible that it doesn't exist.

I've shown time and again why that is wrong.  You just ignore it.

No magic.  It costs much more money to fake going to space than to actually do it.  HUGE profits there; perhaps you can provide some kind of evidence that it wouldn't be more than enough to cover the costs of upkeep?

Lets start at the base of the argument. Do you have proof of a conspiracy?

Yes.  The observations of Rowbotham proving the earth is flat.  Next question?

Thats not proof. Just like 'Physical Education' isn't proof that phlogoston exists. It's a book thats wrong and has been proven wrong. So is enag. Next proof.

Well there's nothing concrete, and obviously it's impossible to prove anything outside of the realm of mathematics, but if the earth is flat, there must be a conspiracy.  Where has Earth Not a Globe been proven wrong?

It hasn't been proven right. It's just one delusional guy.

The mountain of proof that it IS round is much more substantial that one book, however even the fact that there isn't a recognized scientific study proving the earth is flat is good enough to show that it aint the truth.

Do a search for the guy who found the 4000:1 ratio. That should help. Also, get me some data on the conspiracy's books and I'll do the math.

I also have the option of taking the tom way out with "I can't prove a negative". I can't prove something is impossible if it doesn't exist for me to get data from. My argument was merely that it's so implausible that it can't exist.

Certainly the validity of this point depends on how much it would actually cost to produce and send up pseudolites.  Did he prove that the 4000:1 ratio is valid?

He indicated the cost of a satellite and the cost of a pseudolite yes. However I'd really like proof of the conspiracy before I run the numbers. I don't want to waste my time.
