To explain other beliefs and your way of thinking.
« on: August 09, 2006, 11:52:34 AM »
I advise every person to watch this documentary. It should give insight to some FE\'s, except those that are too ignorant.

If you do not watch this because you are too ignorant, then there is no point for anyone, to ever have a discussion with you. Thus no point for you being on these forums if you are unable to discuss.

A video about religion?  What does that have to do with FE'ers, seeing as many are without religious beliefs?

You may not have religious beliefs, but you do have a belief that is based on a assumption.

It's not a good idea to assume you know what others believe.

I don\'t. \"The earth is flat\" is an assumption (it has no proof) which you believe in.

Richard Dawson Rocks. When is part 2 going to be available on the net?

And, as The Brick has indicated... this video is directly related to Flat Earthism in that science is treated the same way by the Flat Earth community as it is by the Religious community... as a pariah trying to destroy the delusions they call 'faith'.

Count me out as well.  The Brick seems to be much too willing to label people as ignorant when he really knows nothing whatsoever about them.  I could just easily conclude that because he posted that video, he must be mentally retarded.

FEism assumes the earth is flat.you misunderstood what he was trying to say.are you saying FEism isnt based on an assumption.if not,then it simply cant be a theory,since theorys assume something to be correct.

That's not what the scientific usage of the word 'theory' means.
A scientific 'theory' means that it is a collection of observations and proposed
rules, formulae, etc. to describe the real world, that has been tested by many different experiments and verified by many independent groups of scientists.

The issue here is that FE has only been "confirmed" by one researcher, and there are many results from similar experiments, and others, that contradict FEism.

yet theorys assume something to be correct.of course FEism is flawed.

Theories only assume something to be correct in two ways:

1. This assumption has already been well tested, so it's not really an assumption but a fact.

2. This theory makes an assumption that can then be tested. This is not really an assumption, but a consequence of the theory- the theory does not say, "since X is true, my theory must be true", but "if X is false, my theory is false, but if X is true my theory is strongly confirmed". A good theory must make such a statement- it must predict things that have not yet been observed, but must be true if the theory is true, as they are consequences of the theory's validity. If the consequences are false, the theory must be discarded or at least modified; otherwise the theory is tentatively confirmed and must be submitted to more tests.
