« on: November 06, 2006, 09:33:11 AM »
Are any of the members of the flat earth society actually scientists? Or Ivy League graduates? Why are there no satellite photos of this "flat earth"? How come there are "ice barriers" surrounding the earth, yet we have seasons. In Australia, it is always warm, while here in Ohio, the temperature changes with the seasons. Explain that. If the earth was flat, the weather would be equivalent throughout the world. We're a planet, not a fucking pancake. There's no such thing as a government conspiracy when this knowledge is GLOBAL. What's the point of this society? Show me a VIDEO or a REAL PICTURE of the flat earth rather than arguing with negations. Haven't you guys ever downloaded Google Earth? Do it and put in any address and there you'll find ACTUAL PHYSICAL EVIDENCE that will prove to you what every preschooler knows. Oh yeah, and gravity. If gravity is in the center of the earth, than there would be less of it the further you go away from it. Like a magnet. Grow up.
hy are people so stupid? i guess years of satelite evidence can't prove that the earth is round? satelites are a conspiracy? yea that's why we have cell phones and xm radio.

Read the FAQ before making new threads. All of your questions are answered there, that's why it says "Flat Earth FAQ *READ BEFORE POSTING".

No, not all of my questions are not answered there. I asked specifically if any of FE's are actually scientists and/or ivy league graduates. Don't be a jackass and tell me that everything's a conspiracy and a coverup like 9/11. Nonconformity is healthy, but you guys are taking this thing way too far. NASA's in on the conspiracy? hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
How bout the Russian Space Station? There's no such thing as a conspiracy, not in America. Go watch an IMAX movie or something. Read a book, attend a kindergarten class. This argument is like saying 2+2 is only 4 because the government tells you so. SHOW ME SOME PROOF, don't tell me. Hmmm..... yea read a book and stop wasting your life away.

Satellites don't exist.

How come there are "ice barriers" surrounding the earth, yet we have seasons.

The ice wall is the furthest point on the FE from the sun.  That's why it's cold there and it is warm somewhere else.

Change in the sun's 'orbit'.

It's a good thing the FE doesn't have any.

Right, so FE doesn't have gravity. That's why I'm levitating right now. Satellites don't exist: are you mentally handicapped? Haven't you heard of the international space station? Are you serious? Download Google Earth before you speak out of your ass and say satellites don't exist. How about the satellite TV I have in my living room? I guess that's all just a global government cover up because international conflict doesn't really exist, that's all just a cover up. Tell that to the soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan fighting so you can have the freedom to join these groups and have the freedom to attempt to deny WHAT EVERY NON-RETARDED PERSON KNOWS. This is a cult .

THAT'S where all the gas is going ... for airplanes to fly over people's houses to take pictures to pretend that sattelites exist.  It all makes sense now ...

Read a book on satellites before saying that they're fake. You have no proof that they are fake. By you saying that satellites don't exist, you're saying that satellite TV doesn't exist. You're saying the Hubble Telescope is a fraud, and you're basically saying that people who graduated from far more prestigous schools than you (because they paid attention in school) and work in a professional scientific field are incorrect.  And you're trying to make a legit argument that YOU'RE OWN TAX DOLLARS are going to "fake satellites" - wow, what a genius you are. And obviously Google Earth is just an airplane that takes accurate pictures of THE WHOLE WORLD (which is obviously flat...... cookoo) airplanes aren't still btw and if you say helicopters you deserve to be smacked. Only a satellite could take a picture of that magnitude. It would take decades to put together a collage of pictures like that and then "pretend" that the earth is round - Something's wrong with you dude. Go drink the kool aid.

Actually, they're not saying anything like that.

It's not one airplane.  You do realize that we have airplanes that are used for reconnaissance right?  They fly very high and take very detailed pictures of the earth.  You have a few UAVs fly around the earth and take pictures.  They would be indistinuishable from 'satellite' pictures.

Having the word "Satellite" on it does not mean the signal actually comes from a satellite.

All of which work perfectly with more down-to-Earth technology.

Well, you've seen an object.  You didn't know how far it was, or whether it was in orbit around the Earth.

right then why do i have to point my dish to an exact spot in the sky? if it was Terrestrial i could just point it any were and it would work.

Because you have to point it in a direction where it will recieve a signal from whatever is broadcasting them.

right and that happens to be... Azimuth 220, Elevation 52

clearly that is not pointing to a Terrestrial broadcasting point.

You mean you have seen some object flying through the air which may or may not be a satellite. I own a 10" Newtonian reflecting telescope and have viewed satellites on multiple occasions, I was never able to see more than a speck of light shooting across the sky. There is no way to accurately verify whether what you are seeing is a satellite or not.

i was at a university with my astrological professor and he verified it along with 5 people who believe the earth to be flat.

You mean they verified that it looked like what a satellite is generally presumed to look like through a telescope, not that they could actually make out any detail. The fact is that it is virtually impossible to verify with any degree of accuracy that what you saw was, in fact, a satellite.
