No, you haven't.
You ignoring it wont magically make it go away.
Again, the math shows you are wrong, beyond any doubt. It is irrefutable.

For a RE with a circumference of 40 000 km, you would need to go 40 000 km around Earth to have the tilt go through 360 degrees.
That means if you want a tilt of 1 degree, you have to go a 360th of the way around, i.e. ~111 km.
That also means that if you only go a distance of 30 km, that means it is a tilt of 360*30/40 000 degrees = 0.27 degrees.

Again, this shows beyond any doubt that you are wrong.
As it is irrefutable, you just ignore it, and try to dismiss it as fantasy, even though you can find no fault with it.

Just like you continue to ignore the questions that show beyond any doubt that you are wrong:
Again, If you have a tube, 1 inch in a diameter and 10 inches long, with this tube level and you looking through the tube with your eye at the midpoint of the tube's height and directly against the end of the tube, how far below the tube can an object at 1 mile distance be, in order to still be visible through the tube?
Can you see the base of a tree at 1 mile distance, if the base of the tree is 6 ft below the level of the tube?
Again, what magic prevents us from seeing the RE through a level tube?

If the math shows the proof
It does. It proves beyond any doubt that the tilt expected on a globe for those windmills is 0.27 degrees, not the massive tilt fantasy you want to go with.

The photo's of Earth from space are said to be composites.
Only some. Others are single photo.

They're certainly not from space
There you go spouting lies as facts again.

But yet....but yet, smokey lad......we get shown utter nonsense like
like your complete inability to understand how lenses work.

The list of nonsense is almost endless with this global set up.
You mean your nonsense claims about it to continue your irrational attack?


Maybe you should read what I've said.
Maybe you should read a dictionary and stop pretending words mean something completely different?

I'm not arguing that.
Stop lying.
That is what you are arguing.
You are claiming that the windmills should be tilted like crazy on the RE, even though they are only a tiny portion of the circumference around Earth.

I'm telling you
And that is the problem, all you do is tell, repeating your same pathetic, refuted lies.
Stop telling and start justifying.

I ask again, do you have any doubt about your feelings here?  Could be the tilt be different than you imagine it to be on a large sphere?
If you lot believe your turbines are dipped well below sight like you believe going down a curve then your tilt would be massively evident.
I'm not interested in your so called global calculations, just the observations.

Yes, I know you feel that way.   You get a gold star for expressing your feelings again.   You still didn't answer the question though, are you completely sure about your feelings, or is there any chance in your mind that you could be wrong?

Lets be honest, you are not interested in ANY calculations whatsoever.  Math is a complete enigma to you, isn't it?

Did you have a very particularly bad experience with mathematics as a child?  I have met other people who also do not understand math AT ALL as adults, and normally it stems from having one or two years as a child where they just couldn't get it, often attributable to a single bad teacher.  And since math is sequential, once you lose your footing it is incredibly difficult to progress any further. 

The positive is that you can learn the basics of math still, even as an adult.  It is difficult, but rewarding. 

If not, then stick to your feelings as you normally do, but know there are simple, easily relatable reasons (beyond global indoctrination!!!!) that people will disagree with those feelings.

It all depends on what those math are and when it's required.

If I do real time stuff that requires calculations, I'll do them.
I won't waste one second of effort trying to calculate a light in the sky because I'm told it's so far away it requires, blah blah blah.

But that is not what I asked.  I know you are inflexible on your feelings about the shape of the earth.  But what about your feelings on the tilt that would be associated by moving 0.075% of the circumference of a global earth.   You feel it would be massive tilt.  Could you be wrong in your feelings about that?

Leave the stuff the does not suit your needs.  Sounds like good advice. 

However, you literally spend hours every day arguing about the shape of the world.  Why though would you leave geometry behind???  It the most basic tool to use in understanding shape, size, and position, all the things you bicker endlessly about here. 

Wouldn't basic geometry be something that would be useful here?  Something that would allow you to move beyond your feelings and imagination?

I'm content in the knowledge that the spinning globe is nothing other than a fantasy story told and sold to the public.
A fiction placed on the fact shelf of libraries, or the science shelf when it should be on the fiction and pseudoscience shelves.

And you are certainly welcome to that opinion and to file it on the fiction shelf in your mind.   Meanwhile, everyone else will put your story, the crazy worldwide conspiracy theory broken by a man who cant understand circles, on their own fiction shelf.  It goes well next to the Magic Crystal of the North Pole and the WorldCell series (which I enjoyed by the way, thank you). 


Quote from: sobchak
It won't change a thing.  You will remain utterly, demonstrably wrong no matter how right you feel.
In your mind, yes. In the mind of many others, yes. In my mind, absolutely not.

You believe that if an object held to a sphere moves 0.075% of the way around its circumference, it will "tilt like crazy" relative to the original position.  This is "right" in your mind. 

0.075%

It is like taking a basketball and moving an object 0.3 mm along its surface.  Or moving an object on the epcot dome by 10 cm. 

You can believe anything you want, and I know you do, but I have to ask, why this?  Why do you need to believe in something that is so obviously wrong?  Is it just reactionary?  Someone tells you that you are wrong so you immediately need to jump on the defensive? 

Are you so insecure that you can not entertain any doubt? 

In your mind, could you be wrong about how much tilt there would be for a distant object on a large, round earth?
I'm not arguing that.
You are placing a massive global fantasy out as a legitimate calculation for tilt.
You think by calculating the entire circumference  over the small amount of miles to the turbines, gives you little to no tilt.

I'm telling you, if your turbines were really showing that much missing over a short distance then the tilt would be massively noticeable.


However, all you have is fantasy because this is not what's happening, anyway, as the sea is essentially flat and level barring movement and your turbines or any object is not going to tilt even by a fraction, unless it naturally went out of plumb.

The turbines lose visual height because of atmospheric dense mass  not allowing light to reflect back to your eyes which only allows your eyes to get the reflected light higher up over distance.



Great

Draw the circle
Show us the tilt is massive

you drew a circle but failed to draw the triangle.

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/9/97/The_Earth_seen_from_Apollo_17.jpg/1200px-The_Earth_seen_from_Apollo_17.jpg

this circle is 1000pixels in diameter.
my first requested triangle appears as a single straight line because the ratio 12,750,000 to 2 is inperceivable.
so i'm going to move on to the windmill.

the island shown in the center is madagascar.
the width of madagascar by map is rouhgly 600km which is over 10x that of this windmill debate.
the pixel count for that is 50pixels.

so 5pixes is what we're going for.
5/1000 = 0.005 = 0.3degrees

MASSIVELY UNMASSIVE!
so
your claim the angle is massive is wrong.

tahnks for comign out.

Because the sun is the light that allows us to see objects, or anything.
If that light gets obscured then it doesn't reflect back.
