Re: Most Ridiculous Thing A FE Has Said To Prove A Flat Earth
« on: October 31, 2017, 01:50:58 PM »
I am posting this in this "Debate" section to avoid any possibilities of problems in postings in the other sections.

IMHO this concept or experiment could be performed with a laser beam aimed across the lake to avoid the posibility of the sag if the fishing line was  used.

I will leave the details to those who want to further explore the geometry of the setup and  the expected and actual results to prove the earth was flat or round, but they should be obvious.

Stick close , very close , to your P.C.and never go to sea
And you all may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Look out your window , see what you shall see
And you all may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Chorus:
Yes ! Never, never, never,  ever go to sea !

The original topic is in FE General.  Why do you think you would be in trouble for posting this in the other thread?
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.

Which is understandable because it doesn't work. It's exactly like General and Debate except the threads start out there before being moved to Debate or General.

No "FE" has ever said anything that proves a flat earth, so this question cannot be answered with facts or truth.

Just thought I would start here and eliminate the moving process.
It has been my observation that round earth facts and posts by round earthers are only permitted in the Debate section unless you want to get a warning or get banned.

Googleotomy... have you read anything posted in FE General?  rabinoz posts there all the time! It's Q&A you need to stay out of, unless you're giving the FE answer or asking a question about FET.

Also, I wouldn't permanently ban you for posting in the wrong forum. I have been trying to explain it to you for months, though. lol

The Q&A is a minefield. Best to stay out of it entirely. You can get a harsh reprimand even if you follow the flat earth wiki to provide an answer. Admittedly, the wiki answers sound utterly ridiculous, but hardly my fault

That's what I mean. I may have mis-interpreted the warnimgs and bans but it seemed they were for an RE posting FE or RE facts in the Q&A section.

SHUT THE FUCK UP WITH YOUR WHINGING AND YOUR BULLSHIT

WHAT THE FUCK IS THE POINT OF YOU
OF ANY OF THISE

WHAT THE HELL IS THE POINT IN DEDICATING YEARS TO FET WHEN YOU CJUNTS COME ALONG AND SPEW THIS

YOU CAN'T EVEN USE YOUR FUCKING BRAINS AND YET YOU ACT SO GODDAMN SMUGG

WHY THE FUCK DID I BOTHER
If you chose to dedicate years to a lost false cause and it still doesn't work, don't swear at us!

That's your fault for backing the wrong horse, live with it!

But basically, you cannot simply start with the assumption that the earth is flat and gravitation is false, etc.

You have to look at all available evidence, without discarding the bits that you personally do not like, and when the evidence is in decide:
  • if the earth is flat or a Globe,
  • whether the earth is stationary or rotates,
  • whether or not the earth orbits the sun and
  • how gravity/gravitation behaves.
In real life, the flat or Globe aspect was decided back around 2500 BC and serious contrary evidence has not yet turned up.
Even before 300 BC there were suggestions that the earth rotated and even orbited the sun, but for quite logical reasons (for the time) these ideas were rejected.
The earth's rotation came up again in around 500 AD, but was not generally accepted till well after the time of Copernicus.

There were various ideas about what we call gravity long before Newton, but Newton and Hooke, partly based on the findings of others and partly based on a tremendous amount of observation and measurement came up with what we now call Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation.
I include Robert Hooke because he did a lot of the research and probably was the originator of the well-known inverse square law. We probably should call it the Newton/Hooke's Law of Universal Gravitation.

What comes out of all of this is that it is completely impossible for any one person, working without the means to gather the required information about the earth, sun, moon, planets and stars, to develop a realistic model of the earth, etc.

I do not doubt that you, sceptimatic, sandokhan and İntikam are very intelligent people, but working separately, without full and correct data you come up with totally different ideas as to the flat earth shape and "operation".

'Nuff said.

Iíve seen π = 4 at least twice, but I canít remember why that was supposed to be support for the flat earth argument.
