Asking questions about technology
« on: May 02, 2016, 10:00:27 AM »
OK, guys, this is what happens when you ask sincere questions about technology in "Technology, Science & Alt Science" on this forum!
https://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=66603.0
https://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=64277.0
I guarantee you that something similar happens if you ask a sincere question about other sciences or even alternative science.
How do you think we can make that board slightly more useful?

How about that you, FlatEarthDenial, stop asking stupid questions? Make sure you are getting enough Vitamin B12, that is necessary for the normal cognitive functions, by the way.
The burden of proof is defined relatively to the current scientific consensus, not relatively to the beliefs of the uneducated people like the Flat Earthers!

Stop trying to debate FET in that forum, IMO!
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

Then prove that they are stupid by answering them or showing that they are nonsocial.

Well, since the best source of vitamin B12 is milk and not meat, I don't think I should be concerned any more than you should.

I agree with you on that. And I am still not getting the answers. And I wasn't even trying to debate FET, I just said that it was weird that you can't discuss technology on the FES forum (because everyone talks about GPS here).

You can't expect a relativelly unknown forum like this to have all the answers on all of the topics. I do know a bit about those topics, and had I sawn the thread before I might have added a couple suggestions (Hell, I'm designing my own language), but you can't EXPECT any kind of answer. Computer Science and conspiracy forums do not necesarilly intersect.

Our forums are known world wide. We've been mentioned in Academic Studies, Books, and Press. I don't know of any other forum with such wide reach. Furthermore I'm an expert in Computer Science. Other forums are run by people who don't understand basic principles like 'Security by Obscurity' and 'Depth in Defense'.

John, your game is going down and down. I liked the hermetical theorist, Guinness chugging world-traveler John more.

Any sensical answer? Seriously, RE-ers! When you debate about the GPS you all pretend to be ICT experts, but apparently nobody on this forum has experience with debuggers?!
You picked the wrong side, and now you are just lying to save your face. RE-ers on this forum don't have to be ICT experts, they don't disagree with the scientific consensus. FE-ers do, and all of them should be experts in something related to the field in order to be allowed to claim something that's contrary to the scientific consensus. And the burden of proof still, unless they convince the vast majority of other experts, lies on them. One scientist is always more likely to be wrong than the scientific consensus is, and, chances are, none of the FE-ers are even scientists.
And if everyone on this forum considers you stupid, and, as far as I have seen, they do, you likely are stupid.
The burden of proof is defined relatively to the current scientific consensus, not relatively to the beliefs of the uneducated people like the Flat Earthers!

Well, first FLATEARTH was a vegan FEer, then he was a vegan REer, then he said he was never a vegan. The dude has no credibility left. Unfortunately, I can't spend more than a few minute here for the next few days, but that's my take.

Are you talking about that FlatEarthDenial guy?  You actually believed he was a flat Earther?  Are you 12 years old?

Thanks! Could you also answer my question about disassemblers?

Well, shape of the Earth and computer science are related, aren't they?

You picked the wrong side
Well, I didn't know how many people wold have to be in a conspiracy if the Earth were flat (that is, how many people are directly involved in the space exploration). I didn't know that the arguments made by FE-ers are so easily refuted. I didn't realize just how many problems the FET has. From what I used to know back then, I picked the side that's obviously right.

An alleged historian who doesn't know about the Balkan wars is going to talk about credibility? That's rich. And what the hell does helping with the technology have to do with credibility?

And you aren't a FE-er either. You claimed that the ships disappearing beyond the horizon is caused by the waves. If you believed in FET, you would think of something way better.
