Progression of the RE argument:
1) Denial
2) Bad example that usually proves FE
3) Personal attacks
4) Attempts to get thread locked


All the while, the earth remains flat and bubbles go up.

Well, in conclusion, thanks everyone for participating. This voyage into the absurdity of RE was fun, but it'll be nice to start talking about real science again.

Another victory for FE!!!

Agreed. Narc forever!

Since when did bubbles go up? Bubbles are a small sphere of a liquid therefore heavier than air and fall down.  You should of used helium balloons Narcbery.

So based on the fact you also believe that bubbles go up AND the earth is flat I will no longer be taking on board anything you say, unless of course you offer me free lollypops from the lollypop forest?

Of course you can't take anything I say, what would you do with it if you could?
Are you offering to take my words if I offer you free lollypops from the lollypop forest, or are you really asking me if I will?

Posts like your really tire me. FES needs more quality posters.

I tried to disprove FE, but couldn't.

Bubbles can be spheres of air.  :-\

Yeah, I think the RE'ers are using a poor definition of up. In their definition, if they were standing on the moon, whatever counter gravity is up. But when they consider their own satellites they believe to be leaving the solar system, away from the suns gravitational pull, they do not call that up, they call it out. Up from the sun is its "north pole". What it boils down to is that RE'ers define up based on their sense of balance. Up is extremely subjective. If I stand on my head, the organs of my inner ear invert and tell me that my head is the direction of gravitational pull, therefore up is towards my feet. However, it has been shown that interpretation of that sensation strongly depends on visual cues as well. This is why when someone is buried in an avalanche, for example, they cannot tell which way is "up". Up is a physiological sensation dependent on the inner ear and visual cues, not a direction. It is most commonly used to refer to a direction, but it is in fact simply the description of sensation taken from inner ear balance and visual cues as to what is the opposite of the most severe gravitational pull being experienced by the person at any given time. This is consistent with both a RE and a FE model. Using "up" or "down" to describe the direction of the bubble does not disprove or prove either model. It is only relating an observation to your own sensation.

Thats a good explanation.

Ive said it before and I say it again: I feel very lucky that the Earth is being pushed straight upwards!
