To my knowledge Dr. Bishop has never claimed to be a physiotherapist or radiographer residing in the UK.

I, also, have no memory of any such claim made by Dr. Bishop.

To my knowledge, Tom Bishop has never claimed to have earned the title Doctor in any way, shape or form.

But it's well known that you're just mean. I jest of course. As I don't know him well enough to call him Tom, I'll just continue with the usual requirements of polite society.  :)

He has made as much claim to that as he has to being a Doctor. Therefore, if Peach and others are going to refer to him as Dr Bishop, then I shall refer to him as Tom Bishop DCR(R).

I never heard Crack-Junkie Bishop say that he isn't a crack junkie. Still I find it VERY appropriate to give someone stature that I have no idea he deserves.

Let's put things this way. According to FEer methodology, I will state my own theory. I want you guys (FEers and REers) to come up with arguments to disprove my claim.

The cube earth theory



The earth is a cube. This is proved by various scientific facts. For example, if you are in the southern regions of earth, the stars on the night sky are different than in the north. Second, the solar cycle. You can not see the sun at night because it is on the other side of cube earth. Third, how do I prove the earth is a cube? Well, the horizon is always flat. And mountains are actually the edges of cube earth. In fact, when you climb a mountain, then climb down the other side, you will not see the horizon on the other side of the mountain because the earth is a cube and the horizon is at a different angle. Also, when climbing down a mountain, you feel yourself going down hill because you are descending on another side of cube earth. The positions of mountains on maps are actually all a big conspiracy invented by our leaders to make us believe the earth is round or flat, to hide the fact that the earth is a cube. Moreover, not all sides of the earth cube have been explored and all aliens and UFOs come from those unexplored site.

Cube earth theory is also supported by the fact that the durations of night and day vary in winter. This is because cube earth wobbles as it revolves around the sun and some sides are more exposed than others during some periods of the year. Also, the proof that earth is a cube is there for everyone to see. When you wake up in the morning, you see the sun rising from behind a straight flat edge in the distance and moreover, all shadows are straight instead of curved. If the earth were round, shadows would be curved, while if the earth would be flat, sunrise would occur at the same time allover the world.

And there you have it. Which of you can prove with scientific arguments (mythology will not be taken into consideration, as I have proven my theory with scientific facts) that my theory is wrong and yours is right? This is not trolling, it is a good exercise for both FEers and REers to debate their theory from another point of view.

Here FE goes again... changing the subject so they can get out of having to prove their (wrong) theories. As far as I know, no FE-er has been able to produce a good response to 29silhouette's post on the first page. As for Dr. Bishop... it is more likely he is part of a FE conspiracy than NASA being part of a RE conspiracy. It really isn't that hard to see.

Holy shit, the voice of reason! Thanks Communist Me, you basically illustrated the foundation on which Flat Earth hypothesis was built. It's just a stupid attempt to troll people while seeming smart. It's completely based off of hypotheses that get more and more ludicrous as an explanation is trying to be formed. For example, I could argue that Leprechauns are real, but nobody sees them because nobody's been to the end of a rainbow. That's basically Flying Spaghetti Monster and Flat Earth "theory" right there, in a nutshell.

The earth's magnetism also shows that they are indeed at the south pole. (And if they were not at the true south pole they would be at the magnetic south, which is close.)

Are you suggesting the Earth's magnetic field is the only thing that can affect magnets?

Besides, the rim is magnetic south, not just one point.
The magnetic south isnt at the south pole, its close to it, but not a perfect match. The same goes for the magnetic north pole. This is why most modern ships (and airplanes etc.) use gyroscopes to keep in track of direction. A gyroscopes is not affected by magnetism, and is based on simple laws of conservation of angular momentum and geometry. It't not an instrument you can fool from a distance. There has also been several flights above and over the south pole, and unledd you suggest teleportation, I don't see how you can explain confirmed airplane tours which cross the south pole, which in your perspective is 40000km, (but on a round earth, from 1000-2500 km) in about three hours?

These are dummy sites put out by NASA to keep the conspiracy alive... Plus nobody is interested in going that far south, have you done one of these tours yourself or know someone who has gone on one of these tours? Yeah, I didnt think so.

If you call the phone numbers listed, there's no answer.

Try it!

The earth's magnetism also shows that they are indeed at the south pole. (And if they were not at the true south pole they would be at the magnetic south, which is close.)

Are you suggesting the Earth's magnetic field is the only thing that can affect magnets?

Besides, the rim is magnetic south, not just one point.
The magnetic south isnt at the south pole, its close to it, but not a perfect match. The same goes for the magnetic north pole. This is why most modern ships (and airplanes etc.) use gyroscopes to keep in track of direction. A gyroscopes is not affected by magnetism, and is based on simple laws of conservation of angular momentum and geometry. It't not an instrument you can fool from a distance. There has also been several flights above and over the south pole, and unledd you suggest teleportation, I don't see how you can explain confirmed airplane tours which cross the south pole, which in your perspective is 40000km, (but on a round earth, from 1000-2500 km) in about three hours?

There aren't any airplane tours which cross the south pole.

Oh! So you admit then, that the south pole can be crossed?

We're making progress with the pea brains!

Actually, there are:

My mistake. I meant that there are no tours which cross Antarctica, as to demonstrate that it is not an infinite plane.

The South Pole is a series of points 90 degrees south, and is certainly crossable.

Gyroscopes require constant adjustment.
It does not change the fact that you can't fool it from a distance. Also, you have accelerometers, or inertial sensors. These also build up an uncertainty, but they are more than good enough to be used to cross the south pole. And how do you define "constant adjustment"? How often, and how much do you have to adjust it?

Also, there are flights that cross the south pole. In addition, there are cruise ships that go to the south pole.

These points should be at the rim, shouldn't it? There are flights that indeed cross the antarctic continent, and according to your FE-map, comes out on "the other side", at the opposite end of the disc.
