Where are the earth pictures?
« on: June 26, 2017, 04:39:25 AM »
I recently started searching about FE, and i am truly in doubt. I have not seen 1 not 1 real picture of earth from out of space, explain that to me? All pictures are CGI(computer generated) stated by NASA themselves, look it up. If that doesn't scream fishy i don't know what does, there isn't 1 real picture of the earth, planets, the moon, or the sun; absolutely nothing. It simply doesn't exist, and we are in the year 2017. How is this even possible? How is no one asking NASA this question?

NASA never said their images were computer generated.  They are composite images...a completely different thing.   The reason MOST pictures are composite images is that they are taken from only 300 miles away and that is not far enough to zoom out and see the whole planet at once. 

There are several pictures of the whole planet that are not composite images, nor computer generated.  The CGI excuse is just something the FES came up with once we had the technology to produce photo evidence.

You don't need a picture of the earth to prove it is a sphere, there are endless other facts you can observe for yourself.

It is not rational to dismiss the facts and evidence that prove a spherical earth, and then believe in a conspiracy theory in which there is zero actual evidence or facts that support it.

I can get multiple sources right now, that shows NASA tampered with earth images(photoshopped them) and also made CGI earth pictures. You're telling me NASA a 20 billion dollar government facility can't get one decent picture from outer space? Yea right.

The only people who have "debunked" these photos are flat earthers that would debunk a trip to space if they saw it for themselves.

You can just watch the live feed from the ISS if you want.  But I am guessing that has somehow been debunked as fake also....  Pitty you are too closed minded to realize how closed minded you are.

Even if you claim all of NASA's information is false, there is still endless evidence that destroys flat earth theory.

That photo predates CGI by decades.  It was published at the time, in the era during which it was taken.

Here's one taken in 1966, well before the CGI era:


Here's one taken by astronaut William Anders in 1968, during the Apollo 8 mission.  Again, well before CGI was a thing:


Here's a detail of that one that the US Postal Service issued on a 1969 postage stamp.

Absolutely agree with this intervention. I assume that thanks to the fact that the photo taken by NASA satellite are composite it is easy to debunk that the cameras should take the pictures of the Earth with distortion, as each photo is composed by tiles which distortion is spread over the picture's total area

Thats great,

NASA are their own worst enemies, the fact that thousands of the early moon landing tapes conveniently were erased shows that NASA fears scrutiny. If anyone still believes that the moon landings actually happened, then they are living in "911 was done by terrorists" la la land, and thats exactly where NASA and the government want them.

Regardless of the shape of the earth, when Roundies start defending the undefendable without questioning any of the numerous  air bubbles, cgi gaffes, and in 911's case, controlled demolition evidence, then its a sure sign that they are a part of the deception so be careful on here.

Dear Round Earthers:

It's really rather pointless arguing with FE'ers using photos taken by NASA.

They don't trust NASA.  NASA (and the UN) are claimed to be in an enormous conspiracy.

So why bother.   You can't debate a blanket "They're lying" claim...you just can't.

What makes FET fail - is things like the observations that any human can make for themselves, very easily, just looking at the Sun and Moon and spending a few minutes thinking carefully about what they see.

There is (as yet - that I've seen) no FET explanation whatever for the phases of the moon that actually works.

The Wiki says that the sun shines on the moon to make phases...just as in RET.   Unfortunately, the Wiki also says that the sun casts a beam of light downwards onto the earth, like a flashlight...which means it can't illuminate the moon - which the Wiki tells us is at the same height as the Sun.

If it's noon in summer in Indonesia (so the sun is more or less vertically overhead) and at the same instant, the moon is more or less vertically overhead at roughly midnight on the opposite side of the planet, in Brazil - then (even ignoring the "cone of light" problem) the moon would have to be in 50% shadow...but what we ACTUALLY observe in that situation is that the moon is full.

The Wiki attempts to explain this by the moon and sun "exchanging altitude"...aside from the obvious issues of them having to change size due to perspective...for the moon to be full, when the sun is above a point 12,000 miles away - the moon would have to be (effectively) infinitely far away above the earth.   If it were merely (say) twice it's normal 3,000 miles altitude - then it would be only just barely more than a half moon.   If the moon were to move up to 12,000 miles above the earth, there would be an isocelese right-triangle with apoint 3,000 miles above Equador at the right angle and the sun and moon at the other two points...that would let the sun shine on the moon at a 45 degree angle...still not REMOTELY anything like a full moon.   Put the moon out at 100,000 miles above the Earth, and now it might maybe look almost full...good enough maybe.  But now the moon is 30 times further away than it "normally" is - and would look like a pin-prick in the sky instead of a big, round disk.

Other FE websites claim that the moon glows by the light of luminous creatures like fireflies that migrate over the surface over a period of a month, and this creates the moon phases (Yes!  Really!) - yet others claim that the moon is projected onto the sky as a hologram...which doesn't really explain how people have talked about the moon and it's phases in documents going back thousands of years before holograms were invented...and doesn't explain how it is that this is possible given that holograms simply don't work like the do in StarWars.

Busted.

Add to that how the moon appears to be upside down in the southern hemisphere - and rotated 90 degrees (compared to, say North America or Europe).

Mr Bishop's ad-hoc explanation requires that the moon is a flat disk laying parallel to the surface of the earth - but then goes oddly quiet when it's pointed out that it would appear as a squashed ellipse from some places - and in any case, this doesn't explain what you see at the equator.

Busted.

Then ask about how lunar and solar eclipses work...in RET, you can see the curved shadow of the Earth laying onto the moon in a partial lunar eclipse.  This can't happen in FET, so they magically add another object that somehow gets between Earth and Moon to cause this darkening.  The Solar eclipse in FET ought to cause the moon to crash into the sun (it's claimed that they are at the same height - and they'd have to be to avoid having the moon cast inconveniently oddly shaped shadows)...so again, the mystery object intervenes between sun and earth.   Because at the (RET) moment of totality, you can see 'beads' of sunlight shining through deep valleys in the moon - the FET mystery object would have to have valleys and mountains in the exact same places as the actual moon.    But unfortunately, this explanation can't explain why solar eclipses are visible through such a narrow band of the Earth's surface.

Busted.

...it goes on and on.   So forget the NASA faked photo/moon-landing stuff - yes, to any reasonable degree of belief, it's impossible for such a wide ranging conspiracy (across at least four space-going nations and half a dozen independent businesses - about a million amateur and professional astronomer, etc).

You can't argue with a "They are all lying to us to cover up the truth"...you just can't.  So give up on this one.

There are MUCH easier ways to disprove all of the nonsense that said about FET.  Things that the FE'ers cannot deny - which require them to simply ignore offending posts.

It is called exposure.  Take a moment to look it up.  This has only been explained (and can be proven) 50-100 million times.

Why can't you see stars during the day?

"I have not seen 1 not 1 real picture of earth from out of space, explain that to me?"

Okay, here's the explanation, you suck at finding photos on the internet. Clear enough?

It took me a bit more than 4 minutes to come up with this: http://www.russianspaceweb.com/images/spacecraft/application/weather/elektro/earth_disk1_1.jpg

Russian space agency, Roscosmos, not NASA.

"... there isn't 1 real picture of the earth, planets, the moon, or the sun; absolutely nothing."
That's pretty extreme. Are you literally claiming that no one, in all of history, has ever taken a picture of the moon? I must augment my previous statement, you suck at understanding simple, everyday occurrences that no one else has any trouble with.

I've found two big channels dedicated to debunking Roscosmos/NASA/ISS:

Watch one of the videos in the search results.

I am just an amateur "picture taker", but I have taken a lot of pictures of the moon. But the stars don't show up because :
I set the shutter speed to a fraction of a second for the brightness of the moon.

If I had wanted to take a  picture of the stars I would have had to take a long time exposure - maybe even an hour or more. There are "star trails" pictures which took several hours.

Would you say they're not real ?

It is all a matter of exposure of the rating of the film or the digital camera equivalent setting. It's just a matter of exposure, which has been explained time after time on these forums.

If I set the shutter speed (say 1/100 second) and the lens aperture ( "f stop", say f8) to get a picture of the moon correctly exposed, the stars, being much dimmer, will be underexposed and will not show in the picture.

I'm just using these figures for examples. The actual settings might be different.

If I change the settings for correctly exposing the stars (say several minutes time exposure at f 2) the stars will be correctly exposed, but the moon will be overexposed and show up in the picture as a bright blob.

This is just an example of the problems of taking pictures of the moon and the stars.

Some more advanced amateur or professional photographer should be able to give you more accurate examples of shutter speeds and f stops.

Are you saying that pictures of the moon taken by amateur photographers aren't real ? Also if all the pictures taken by the astronomical observatories of the moon, the suns, the stars, the planets and all the other objects in the sky aren't real ?

Are YOU  really real ?
Are you really smarter than a Fifth Grader ?

Here are two suggestions for Flat Earthers :

(1) If Flat Earthers would like to learn about taking pictures of the moon, etc.:
Visit an astronomical observatory and ask questions. Go  on one of their "Star Parties" and ask questions.

(2) If Flat Earthers would like to learn if the earth was flat or round.:
Join the Navy and ask questions.

One of my old teachers told me :  "The only dumb question is the one you don't ask."
As for the Navy, I don't know how many times I heard that......Starting in Boot Camp !
