Flat Earth Debate / Re: The distance between the sun and the earth

Yes, it says "approximately 3000 miles", which, if true, could be anything from 2500 to 3499 miles. The uncertainty with this value is 16,7 %. Since the procedure is pretty simple, doesn't it bother that there isn't anything more accurate?
You have a peculiar idea of "approximately". But no, given that the height fluctuates, it doesn't bother me.

So, the light should travel on straight paths (at least close enough)
Absolutely not. Electromagnetic acceleration applies.

It's an ongoing investigation based on the multiple undisclosed contacts between Russian and members of Trump's campaign/administration, compounded by Trump's many lies and efforts at obstruction. That's more than enough to warrant an investigation - which you apparently agree should happen

an idea that seems somewhat at odds with your belief that it's all nonsense.
No, your beliefs are nonsense. They also have diddly squat to do with the investigation.

If you disagree with what I'm saying, then actually rebut me. Explain what it is I've said that's wrong and point out what's right. Just repeating the word "meme" doesn't help anybody.
We've gone through this at great length. I believe I've responded to most your posts where you've invoked the meme-conspiracy or the "b-b-b-but the emails" meme. On other occasions, Rushy tried and I didn't chime in because I didn't have much to add. We've tried reasoning with you, but you were having none of it, much as you would expect from a die-hard conspiracy theorist.

dismissing it as not being a big deal.
Right, so the very "victim" here is saying that he didn't even register it. A crowd was moving, one person in that crowd happened to walk past another person. An everyday occurrence, I'm sure you'll agreeHOLY SHIT THIS IS AN OUTRAGE IMPEACH TRUMP NOW!!!

You wouldn't tolerate someone you barely knew doing this to you
Go to Times Square and take a 10 minute walk. Then, slow down a little bit so that you're moving slower than the crowd. I look forward to you not getting shoved or slightly forcefully passed by anyone at all. No siree Bob, that would never happen.

I can't argue with this logical, well-reasoned takedown.
There's nothing to take down - that's the entire point. By your own admission, you subscribe to a conspiracy theory which, at this point, does not have any evidence to support it. It's also based on online memes. Meme-conspiracy is just a useful shorthand for it.

Until the situation changes (either your views adjust to the evidence available to date, or evidence emerges which yields your ideas some credence), I'll keep laughing at you for pursuing the left-wing equivalent of Pizzagate.

The wiki doesn't answer to this particular question, the distance between the sun and the earth, which is why I started this thread in the first place.

SexWarrior: as you clearly are a supporter of the flat theory and follow this thread, could you please confirm, question or deny İntikam's claim that the dome prevents us from doing proper measurements – at least those that are based on the assumption that the light travels in straight paths? (I know that this is not exactly a correct assumption because of reflection and refraction, but I believe that concerning this particular topic it is approximately good enough.)
I would start off by warning you about taking Intikam too seriously: he believes he's immortal and that the Illuminati time travellers are out to get him.

With that out of the way, I personally do not believe in a dome/firmament, so naturally I would deny his assertion.

Excellent counterarguments, guys. Almost as convincing as SexWarrior's bulletproof debunking of the Trump-Russian connection by repeating the word "meme."
Oh, diddums, are you still upset about your conspiwacy theowy not being all that popular?

b-but the emails guys right haha? right? the emails thing justifies my bush-did-9/11-level stuff somehow yes???

You wrote it with your own words, then that means you know the answer to his question. Why twist it around? He's just asking a what happens to the sun, not where he can find the answer.
Sorry, we don't make exceptions for lazy people. If we start re-explaining the FAQ to one person, then everyone else will rush here with already-answered questions. There's a reason virtually every subject in the modern world comes with an FAQ, and there's always a drove of entitled assholes who think they don't need to read it. I have zero sympathy for these sort of snowflakes.

but when someone use the arguments in the wiki against you and then you say "Yeah, but that's what the wiki says, not me" or "thee wiki is quite outdated". Is just a full circle of not commiting to anything.
I just ran a search for the words "wiki" and "outdated" on my own posts. I only found one, in which I'm calling someone else's Wiki outdated. Naturally, this post is now going to become the second result for future searches. I'm a big fan of correcting the Wiki when it's wrong (although I'm sure some will be eager to tell you that sometimes I take my sweet time to get round to it)

BREAKING: Trump uses 3-ply toilet paper, but the rest of the White House is only stocked with 2-ply.

Announcements is not the right place for this discussion. Please see this thread, where your issue has already been raised and discussed:

this a debate thread ..... I want to hear the answer from your own words
That's brilliant. Unfortunately, debating the very basics over and over is particularly uninteresting, especially when people ask the same question multiple times a day. That's why we wrote our own words down in the FAQ. It is expected of you that you will read it before engaging in discussions here. If you choose not to do that, well, that's on you, but don't expect to be taken any more seriously than geckothegeek

just a simple question needing a simple answer
Isn't it convenient that the answer has already been given to you in a public document which you're expected to read before posting?

Your results are consistent with the Flat Earth model. The apparent magnification of the Sun is nullified by the real change in distance between the observer and the Sun. The very fact that you can't perceive a difference attests to that.

Your illustration is misrepresentative and largely meaningless. The Sun never sinks below the Earth. Please at least read the FAQ before trying to argue.

I guess we'll have to agree to disagree. You'll always find a way to discredit someone with an appeal to authority. Meanwhile, we will continue to welcome people with Doctorates of Education who talk about anti-FE deception in education.

To be fair, the prototype in Iowa seems to be doing well in the square.
Does it? What is your measure of success here?

It barely generates any electricity at all. The installation keeps breaking even in the relatively mild conditions that the test installation is exposed to, and the whole installation caught fire at least once.

What they promise is impossible from a technical point of view - they simply can't generate enough electricity to power sufficiently bright LEDs for the road markings to be seen during the day (that's why the Idaho installation uses relatively dim ones), let alone heat the road; and the engineering behind the idea is really shit.

You can see a live feed from the installation here. Try to catch a glimpse when it's not in the shade. And when the bloody thing isn't on fire. Live energy generation stats are available here. Over the past 2 months, the peak appears to be 1.30KWh.

They keep telling us they're doing well, but they really, really aren't.

"I do not go up and down a 360 degree angle" - are you quite sure you want this on your front page?   It does rather convey a tone of complete nonsensicality that you might want to avoid.
If you listen to the context of the debate, it's not surprising that his speech was a bit chaotic. It doesn't take away from the message he's sending.

(His doctorate is in Human Resources Development...not a strong math/physics requirement on that course, I suspect!)
He holds a Doctorate of Education. Whether or not you like his subject field is of very little significance.

This is just embarrassing.
Finally, we can confirm that Trump is racist. After all, this was the Prime Minister of Montenegro

I've no idea how Trump's visits are going but haven't heard anything too bad so yay for that.
Oh boy you've missed out.

What can explain the fact that there are different shadows around the world at different times?
Different how?

In addition, doesn't the fact that the mast of a ship appears first disprove flat earth?

At least this doesn't involve parking your car on top of the solar panels and doesn't claim to break thermodynamics by producing enough electricity to be useful and light up a fuckton of bright LEDs and heat your driveway so it never freezes over again.
