My Signature fits well into that argument :P

The Earth is flat. We know this. Therefore if the Earth is flat and NASA has claimed send ships into space then there is a conspiracy.

In the finite Earth model it is impossible to send ships into space so therefore NASA hasn't actually sent stuff up there.

In the infinite Earth model the Earth wouldn't appear spherical therefore NASA hasn't actually sent stuff up there and taken pictures of the Earth



NASA is lying about what it does with it's money, therefore there is a conspiracy.

1) EG is lying. He does not believe that the Earth is flat.
2) He assumes the conclusion (The Earth is flat.), to obtain the required premise (A conspiracy exists that forges and hides the truth.). As you know that evidence for a round Earth is overwhelming without the premise of a consipracy.

By the way, it's "its", not "it's".

2) Incorrect. I assume the premise (The Earth is Flat) which means that the conclusion must exist. (Conspiracy)

Assumption is the key to the failure in the premise of your belief system. AKA faith based. Conspiracy is just a control tool, and a pleading tool for credibility. If you have to use this kind of argument to support your assumptions, you are thus phishing for ignorance much in the same way that the Banana Man does.

And once you assume something that is false, such as the Earth is flat, you can conclude anything. Anyone you who assumes their premise to prove their conclusion is wrong. Do learn to reason.

Assumption is the mother of all Fuck-ups. Assumptions are for those who can't apply critical thinking skills to establish anything they are assuming to be true is in fact true. This usually follows the unwillingness to address anything that show's their assumptions to be untrue. It's what I call pleading religious dogma.

Thank you. I see that you do not disagree my argument was valid. Good.


I would also like to point out that just because you assume your premise, does not necessarily mean you are wrong.

When I decided to take a shower, I do so because I assume that bad hygiene is bad for my health. (Along with many other reasons)

Does that mean that I am wrong about bad hygiene being bad for my health?

You're wrong, but I guess we've come to expect that. I do disagree with your argument. I never said that everyone who assumes their premise is wrong, did I? Do learn to read.

EG the problem comes when you use the conclusion to justify the assumption.
You can never dismiss evidence contrary to Flat Earth by using a conspiracy without first proving that the conspiracy exists without using an assumption stating that your view is correct.

It would be like me saying that I know the Earth is a sphere so you must be crazy. I have to prove my assumption first before my argument has value.

It's like religion, they have a conclusion, and look for things to support it (i'd say "facts" but i haven't seen none so far).

Yep. FET is more like "contradict round earth explanations". There is nothing in FET that produces something impossible on a spherical earth.

The Earth is flat. We know this by attributing anything that might prove otherwise to the conspiracy. The conspiracy has infinite resources.

In the finite Earth model it is impossible to send ships into space so therefore NASA hasn't actually sent stuff up there.

In the infinite Earth model the Earth wouldn't appear spherical therefore NASA hasn't actually sent stuff up there and taken pictures of the Earth

Yep, and it's rather funny watching them plead for credibility. This is like watching the banana man videos, or some guy telling people that it's God pushing them down to explain gravity. If I am not mistaken, this websites seems like an attempt to teach ignorance as if it was a war on science. You can almost call this a creationist website to where they attempt to tell you to believe them without them actually proving what they say is even true or relevant. It falls into the typical mechanics of brainwashing, and the conspiracy is interestingly used as a fear tool. FE is definitely religious in nature (as in it behaves like a religion).

What would you consider outrageous? I need not go any further than the FAQ, EAT, Earthquakes, FE Map, or time, speed, and distance calculations to comprehend that FE is all faith based pseudoscience. When people like this can learn their shapes and why navigation would fail utterly by using spherical coordinates over a FE, they might actually figure out the Earth isn't flat. This includes manual plotting of ones course by using the Sun, stars, and the Moon according to the RE coordinate system. You might also want to understand what a non-planner triangle is, or what a Green flash is. You might also want to figure out how to track the orbits of the moon and sun to figure out the hilariousness of the FE model.

And Parsifal,

Einstein theories have far more credibility than yours do. And I don't think I recall him ever assuming himself to be correct if something proves him incorrect. Your argument is not how the scientific community works. You apparently believe you can cast magic pseudoscience and then assert it as fact without substantiating it, demonstrating it, or even remotely showing any real data in regards to it. I am not interested in faith based pseudoscience.

Assumptions are typically as wrong as statistics are wrong. Assuming a premise to be true without actually validating such a premise to be true is likely to be wrong. Arguing a negative does not win you credibility either Parsifal. Yes, an assumption can sometimes pan out to be true giving the evidence to back it up pans out to support it. However you are using assumptions in EAT as an attempt to prove EAT vs actually demonstrating, experimenting, providing data, or actually substantiating it. When an FE believer on this site can actually substantiate their assumptions as facts, I will kindly consider them up for peer review.

When I read about E=MC2 I can understand the 4 stages of matter. Hence, there is a reason why we have Nuclear Reactors powering our Electrical Grids.
