In the meantime, why don't you explain how the FET "round water currents" work. I think you've stalled long enough.

I'll be gracious and say that you don't have to substantiate the claim that these currents actually exist. I'll pretend they do. You just have to address the fact that according to widely observed water-current behavior (not to mention physics in general), they would affect the waves' momentum in a way that would have been noticeable -- you have to reconcile this water-current idea with the actual fact of how long it took for the wave to cross the distance.

I have to wonder...

Is everyone clear that tsunami, normal waves, and currents are very different phenomena?

The tsunami would propagate and dissipate within hours, reaching across the Pacific rather quickly. The effect was much smaller in Oregon State but similar to that in  Miyagi Prefecture.

Normal waves really aren't of any interest in this thread and usually are significant only near shore, such as in surfing competitions.

Currents carried the debris over months around the Northern Pacific.
Keep it serious, Thork. You can troll, but don't be so open. We have standards

I would say the REers are pretty clear, and the FEers who were actually debating the issue left this thread long ago. 

They last argument that they made was that oceanic currents could redirect the tsunami waves, which i pointed out as a foolish idea.

I thought we were talking about the debris washing up on American shores months after the appearance of the tsunami.  Obviously the direction of the tsunami waves would have very little to do with that and it would be determined more by the direction of the ocean currents.
Where did you educate the biology, in toulet?

Yes that is the title of the thread, but the discussion had made an abrupt turn from that discussion.

Round already knows we're not talking about debris:

no one here can still explain to me how the tsunami can reach USA within a day and Peru,Chile and Antarctica shortly after...

It would be nice if you could articulate your reason for believing it shouldn't be possible...

He's just stalling. Again.


Roundy, we have "articulated why it shouldn't be possible". Now quit wasting time and articulate how it is possible.

Just to show what proper Ocean Circulation is as opposed to the silliness of some claiming that the Oceans circulate exclusively within the latitudinal parallels and not in a giant global conveyor belt.



so many FET fall flatter than the theory they are trying to push.

One week later and... nothing.
