Flat Earth Debate / Re: How thick is the Earth according to FE
« on: April 24, 2017, 10:19:50 PM »
The thickness of the flat earth is something I have never seen an answer for. However, the very way we measure the thickness of the earth's layers is  a proof of the round earth. Seismic waves bounce through the earth, telling us a lot about what makes it up.

I like in the intro how the radiator slides by the edge of the frame. It just makes me think of how much it took, and how amazing the ISS is.

With this theory we can explain everything... the season, 24h day at the southpol, just everthing. Don't question those things/thoughts. They are axioms! There are big iron plates which float above earth. Stars startet existing, because this plates got holes. flat earth is real! don't question this!
What causes this phenomenon, how did that get there in the first place, what causes the holes, what is the light behind the plates?
You know, the earth is constantly accelerating upwarts. This is the reason why much iron gathered around one piece of a magnet. And the air is pushing this ironplate upwarts. What do you say against this? ;)
Magnetism isn't caused by acceleration. I think you mean "Upwards" even though you have no proof of that acceleration.

And Russian national interest would DEFINITELY benefit from the moon landing fake being uncovered. IMAGINE the propaganda coup that would be! America isn't on the forefront of research and technology, they're just a bunch of liars!
Ah, yes, the worldwide propaganda coup that would completely topple America, Russia, China, and probably half of the EU. Yes, I'm sure a Russian coup is exactly what Russia wants.

Is your username self-referential by any chance?

Also, America is no longer on the forefront of science and technology. Sorry to remind you. Turns out the coup was unnecessary.
Since when are we not on the forefront?

5 - Ah, yes, Wikileaks, the group whose idea of the "truth" just happens to perfectly align with Russian national interests. But, more seriously: No, I do not see why it would have to happen by now. There is no doubt in my mind that the issue will eventually be uncovered, but you've presented no reasoning to suggest a schedule or timeframe.

Star Wars laser type weapon zapping something on earth
The Star Wars program was designed to zap missiles as they flew towards the US, not to zap something on the ground.

I'm referring to Tom's continuing statements that this is about "Military superiority with nukes in orbit". The nukes aren't in orbit, ever, only trajectories, and that's only when they are launched. And nuclear showdowns are not about "domination", they are world-ending events.

How the #### do you know? Do you know exactly what each and every "satellite" is equipped with when it is launched? Either "Star Wars" exists or space travel isn't possible or feasible. There is ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE IN HELL that we haven't Weaponized space if it is even remotely possible.
What exactly is the strategic advantage?

A simple argument can dispel all conspiracies about NASA
Hoo boy, whenever someone opens a post with "here's this ONE WEIRD TRICK that proves me right", you know it's gonna be top quality reasoning and not an old argument that's already been beaten to death.

Why didn't the Soviets disprove it? And why wouldn't America disprove soviet successes such as Sputnik to give themselves a more prominent position?
Two possible reasons: Either they thought the other side is actually succeeding, or they already claimed they're totally going to space and felt slightly awkward about telling their governments that all those millions they laundered were, well, laundered. Going to jail/a labour camp was probably fairly low on their to-do list.

Before Tom Bishop says something about the "Domination of space" and "ICBMs in orbit", let me tell him that ICBMs are stored in silos firmly rooted in the ground. If they have launched and are in orbit, that means that someone has started a nuclear war. There are no nukes in orbit.
So, by your ace logic, since there are currently no nukes in orbit, it makes no difference whether or not nukes are at all feasible. I love it.

I guess we can de-escalate that whole North Korean thing then. After all, no North Korean nukes are in orbit, so it doesn't matter whether they're close to being able to launch one or not! Quickly, Rekt, get Trump on the line before it's too late!

The Space Race wasn't about science, it was about getting your missiles into earth orbit first and claiming military superiority.

If the Soviets lie and say "space travel is possible, and we were able to get rockets there," why would the Americans then admit "actually, we found out that space travel does not seem feasible" in contradiction to popular science which had been postulating that space travel should be possible for hundreds of years? That is tactically disadvantageous.

The Space Race started immediately after WWII.  The competition was raging for 12 years from 1945 to 1957, with many failed rocket launches on both sides. Is it a coincidence that the US happened to achieve success with the Explorer I within just three months after Sputnik?
The missiles are not in orbit, Tom! ICBMs never go into orbit! They are just extremely long ranged missiles!
That aside, Explorer 1 could have BEATEN sputnik if we weren't being morally righteous. We wanted to use a civilian rocket, the Juno 1, which was a derivative of the Redstone. We didn't want to use the Jupiter ICBM family due to it being developed chiefly by Werner Von Braun, a Nazi scientist.
Is it a coincidence that others developed planes right after the Wright Brothers' first flight? Is it a coincidence that any technology that is being vigorously pursued can happen several times, with only the first one being remembered?
There IS NO MILITARY SUPERIORITY in space. ICBMs do not give superiority, they end the world.
And ICBMs don't go into space until launched! They aren't in orbit! Nobody is trying to "get your missiles into earth orbit first" Until they are actually being USED to launch nukes they never move from their silo!

And why wouldn't America disprove soviet successes such as Sputnik to give themselves a more prominent position? A rebuttal of an entire space program that is a main source of national pride would be a HUGE propaganda coup, and why wouldn't the Americans disprove the Soviet's missions or the Soviets disprove NASA's missions? You could say that they wanted to preserve themselves, but what about North Korea? They have no space program, the technology to show that there is nothing in space, and the hatred of America as a motive!

If manned lunar landings were so easy in the 60's and 70's why has no one else done it? Or why haven't we done it since Apollo Missions?

No one claimed that it was easy. In fact, it was really, really expensive, which is why no one else has done it since, including us.

I can imagine many different scientific benefits to experimenting technology or developing it on the moon.

Like what? We already have the ISS for zero-g experiments.

The other problem was that the success of the moonlandings was getting there and getting back safely. UNfortunately, the moon offers little else beyond a place to plant a flag. Mars however...

What does Mars offer? Besides no atmosphere and no magnetic field...

What does Mars offer? Maybe you should aquaint with the reasons so many countries and agencies want to go there. It DOES have an atmosphere albeit thin. It has gravity and a near 24hr rotational cycle. Also, it is the only planet we can reach capable of supporting life.

So what does Mars offer???  A chance to explore and increase our knowledge. it has ice caps, probable water in aquifers.

Why is everyone so worried about making Mars the new Earth instead of the fact that we're making Earth the new Mars?

Wouldn't it make much more sense to build a survival camp on the moon? It's a lot closer, and don't we have a track record of landing on the moon, somehow taking back off of the moon, and returning gently to Earth? Seems like the more logical choice to me. Any system we would plan for mars should probably be tested closer to home first, wouldn't you agree?

This is completely incorrect.  I have seen plenty of substantial and consistent criticism of the literature.  There are multiple threads that demonstrate what complete and utter kife EnaG is, for example.

The criticism is weak and easily rebutted. But still, criticism is not bringing anything original to the table to demonstrate the shape of the earth. Modern astronomers have not really done anything original on this topic. This is why we have to look at the work of ancient astronomers who did not have authorities to appeal to when questioning the nature of the world.

I haven't seen any original proofs that 2+2=4 lately. Everyone just uses the same proofs that were used millennia ago. Weak.
Yeah, I feel that the government has really pulled the wool over our eyes on this one. 2+2 is obviously fish, your millennia old proof can't dispute my cold hard observations.

The general attitude that I have seen is.... strange. I have had a discussion with someone who legitimately believes that the Cold War was a fake. A bit far-fetched, for me.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: The Wall
« on: April 06, 2017, 12:36:32 PM »
In the Flat Earth theory, the world is ringed by a giant wall of ice. It cannot be traversed and anyone who approaches it is met by resistance from a conspiratorial border patrol.

So what are the dimensions of this ice wall that surrounds the disc?
Has anyone circumnavigated it?
If not, how has its coastline been drawn on Flat Earth maps?
Also if not, how do we know it is contiguous around the entire circumference?

I'd love to talk to someone who has actually seen it too.

Stay scientific - government conspiracies aside, if one is going to assert it is there then it must have been observed somehow.
I hate it when I try to cross the Ice Wall then get assassinated by the UN SS Death Squad.

« on: April 06, 2017, 12:35:46 PM »
Are you a REr or a FEr? I can't tell by that post

Only interested in Truth. Either way you look at it the Sun is really far away.

Because it's far away

The other stars are further away but we can clearly see them. It's almost like somethings blocking our view of it haha...

Well FE theory, as far as I know, doesn't consider the Sun a star. Besides knowing that there are blinking lights in the sky, we really don't know what, or how far away, stars are.

Could very well be an atmospheric phenomenon.

One interesting theory I've seen is that the magnetic north pole behaves like a mirror ball and scatters the light from the sun onto our ionosphere. From the perspective of the observer, in their relative position, the rotation of our Stars is intrinsically linked to the perceived rotation of our Sun. That is true on FE and RE.
"Besides knowing that there are blinking lights in the sky"
Gee I love it when Flat Earthers don't understand airplanes.
Star's don't "Blink"

Those passages do not have anything to do with the shape of the Earth. They are metaphorical, representing that the Earth, at least at that time, was seen as a huge, immovable, and solid object.

« on: April 06, 2017, 12:29:55 PM »
Could you at least point us to the part that looks like it is "loosely held together"? I honestly have no idea what part you are talking about.

The general answer is this: making something air tight is more time consuming, heavier, and costlier than not making it air tight. If there is no reason to make it air tight, then they aren't going to bother. Electronics don't need an airtight compartment.

You are aware that when the craft landed it allegedly made large clouds of lunar dust that went everywhere. Are you telling me that NASA didn't really care about the then unknown properties of the lunar dust getting into the many gaps in the exterior hull, and onto all of the electronics?
We had sent several landers to the moon before this, the Surveyor series.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surveyor_program
Gave us a pretty good idea of the properties of the moon.

This is one of the many flaws in the FE moon refutations. They only look at the supposed flaws in the pictures that "Top 10 moon fake proofs" show, and no other evidence. All of the engineering numbers and such work, and the Russians said it happened, why would they say that?
