My dad was alive during the time of the moon landing. I didn't say it saw it yesterday or I would have looked at it too.

In that case, I hate to tell you this...your dad is either part of the conspiracy, or a liar; man never went to the moon.

Pendulums: Fine, the earth is rotating.
curvature at high altitudes: being discussed in a thread
satellites: actually high-altitude planes designed to fool you into believing things can orbit the earth.

Quote
My point was they made up new information after I made my argument. After I pointed out how their explanation was impossible, they invented a new one.

Wait...you mean like actual scientists do with actual theories?! The nerve of them!

I'd still like someone to explain penguins on that thread and how March of the Penguins was made.

I'd assume they took cameras as filmed the penguins...just a guess, mate.

A hologram projected on the moon would have to be a significant brightness compared to the moon (if not equal or greater). For the time that the flag was visible, you'd think someone notice a giant lightsource here on Earth. Assuming, it is possible to project an image onto an object thousands of miles away of course...

They were projecting from their high-altitude planes.


High-altitude planes emitting super bright light for days would attract more attention than super bright lights projected from the ground.

Why do satellites resemble stars so well then? How come no one monitors these many planes? The planes would have to be computerized, because satellites obviously can't land, they stay in orbit for many years steadily. Planes cannot be flown by a computer without refueling. These planes would generate a lot of noise as well and would probably be noticed. When was the first satellite made and when was the first plane built that could be flown in a steady pattern by a computer for years?

The planes can't land for years and can not refuel.

I'll trust my own father over someone I've never met.

How's a flat Earth rotate?

They made a high-detail film of penguins on Antarcitca covering vast parts of the continent. The Flat Earth Theory says that Antarcitca is fictional.

Right, okay.... I think the point is that you can't see the flags on the moon through a telescope from the Earth, and NASA knows this.

For some corroboration, see http://www.windows.ucar.edu/tour/link=/kids_space/qmoon_other.html
http://www.iasindy.org/observing.php
http://www.rocketroberts.com/astro/first.htm
(search for "flag")

Finally, consider the limitations of astronomical seeing -- that the best viewing conditions from the Earth allow angular resolution of 0.4 arcseconds.  Now suppoose (liberally) that the American flag on the moon is 1 meter wide.  At 361,366,000 meters (perigee for the moon, minus the radius of the moon), the angle subtended by the flag is thus 2 arctan(0.5 / 361366000) = 2.77 x 10^-9 radians, or 0.00057 arc seconds -- much smaller than the minimum resolution of 0.4 arc seconds!

Basically, you can't see the flag on the moon with a telescope from the Earth.

Well he's never been the more coherent fellow, heh.

>>>Explain March of the Penguins.

>>>Ancient Greece discovered the Earth's roundness and it was the first group of people who really studied astrology. That's one reason why "people used to think the Earth was flat" argument has no merit.

As for the brainwashing bit, my point was that Native Tribes who think the Earth is flat and have never been told otherwise can see the curve of the Earth.

Explain Eight Below, which was filmed in Smithers, BC and in a studio in Vancouver, BC.

No they didn't.  They thought it would be nice if the Earth were round and, assuming that it was so, they computed its circumference.

Eight Below is not the same as March of the Penguins. The latter is a documentary that covers a huge amount of landmass of the continent Antarctica and the surrounding ocean water. It could not have possibly been Vancouver, or Alaska, or the Yukon, of NW Territories, or Nunavut, or Greenland, or Russia. It is one and half hours of landscape that could not have possibly been shot anywhere else, especially with the hundreds of penguins. Watch the film for yourself if you don't believe me.

Vancouver Island? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antarctica

No, but it certainly looked (in Eight Below) as though the filming was done over hundreds of miles of landscape, even though it was really just one mountaintop.  The point is a small region can be made to look much larger than it really is.

It doesn't matter. March of the Penguins is undeniabley filmed in Antarcitca.

Also explain the hundreds of penguins.

See, it was a film about penguins, so naturally, it had to contain penguins...strange that.

Or the Arctic areas, with anamatronic penguins, as Dogplatter brought up

but in all seriousness, it could be anywhere where there is a lot of ice and water, Ice Wall, Antarctic landmass, Arctic Circle, Upper Cananda, Greenland, etc.

It couldn't have been on the Ice Wall as the Ice Wall is the wrong shape and size. As for Antarctic Landmass... that's the continent Antarcitca. It couldn't have been anywhere else as those places lack penguins.

Since those penguins are allergic to damn boats and planes, how inconvenient

Brilliant.  Couldn't have provided a better proof myself.  Look out your window...that's the island of New Guinea.

You know, when I was last at the Biodome, in Montreal, no less, they had penguins.

I was just assuming it wasn't a large, roughly circular landmass surrounded completely by ocean water...
