Jesus! I'm the same as Saddam. How do I become more fascist, is it just a case of killing some brain-cells?

Partially, I also mean I only skipped through and didn't notice the damn fools first time.

Well apart from the reincarnation of Idi Amin (crud), we are all the damn same, so what are we arguing about?

And now Rama is saying things I feel I should find funny, he’s a funny guy, right? But I don’t, not even when I stretch a piece of string to join all the words.

Well quite! We've been arguing for 11 pages saying that it didn't prove a thing about flat/round, it's just an illusion, but Tom keeps going woo, I just want it to stop Junker, I can't  sleep.

Or the slightly more wordy version;

Tom saw a video (it’s in his first post), where this bloke gets excited about the fact that the angle that the moon seems to be pointing doesn’t correspond to the angle you would expect it to be at when in the sky with the sun, then he kind of figuratively goes woo, but doesn’t say what it all means, I think he has other videos that go woo about other stuff including flat earth stuff, so Tom goes woo too.
The RE collective (TM Rama) point out after a while that it’s an optical illusion that can be collapsed by stretching a straight piece of string between the two, but Tom is struggling, the conditions are right to do this in the morning now, I think (we’ve had wall to wall cloud the last 3 days), could you help him?

(11 pages! Fuck I must get out more)

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Which Is Our Map?

So speaks a person who has never travelled far.

For those of us that have, (road trip from the midlands to the south of Spain, Grand tour of Norway and Sweden, for instance, pre-google earth), maps work, things are where they say they are.

I concur, both as art and as an illustration of your understanding, it’s another failure I’m afraid, hopefully a member of the FE crew will attempt this in the true spirit of free thinking discovery, that this place is supposed to represent.

The test was critically evaluated and you have yet to explain how we can do this "string thing" experiment without repeating the flaw as illustrated.

Tom the only thing you have successfully illustrated is your lack of comprehension, compounded by your refusal to check your flawed reasoning with a simple test. When considering the beliefs of your hero on direct evidence over just speculating is inexplicable.

Junker! Seeing as you are here on patrol, have you tried this string thing? Indeed have any of the FE fraternity prised themselves from their basements to do a simple bit of real world experimentation, I don’t want to push Tom anymore as there is obviously something or someone that is preventing him from going out.

Did a similar series of diagrams here (http://forum.tfes.org/index.php?topic=5225.msg102411#msg102411) in Totes's RE information repository.

Love the new avatar Nirmala.

Ten out of ten for effort Nirmala, be interesting to see what problems the Bish’ will have with it.

I have to be honest though, I was a bit disturbed out find out that “The Heron” wore socks with sandals, your neck of the woods an obvious no go area for the fashion police.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Satellites
« on: April 19, 2017, 01:24:36 PM »
But given the lack of any counterpoints or debate, how do you expect a rational person to assume anything other than that it is due to no rational explanation existing, and therefore the Earth is in fact round?

Bingo!

Quite apart from the question of their very existence, another problem is observing them (for those FE’ers that don’t dispute their reality, just their trajectory). As you no doubt know they are visible in the sky, but only for a few hours before sunrise and after dark. According to what I understand it’s dark at night because the thickness of the atmosphere cloaks the sun (as it doesn’t set below the horizon), but somehow light is still available to light them (and noctilucent clouds) up.
From a RE perspective this is natural as the height of both the satellites and clouds are such that they would catch light from a sun below the horizon.

Okay then slowly….It’s the natural thing to do when two items are low in opposite sides of the sky to turn from one to the other, he could have gone the opposite way round with his pointy finger and traced a seemingly straight line, but if he had followed the tree trunk at the start of the clip, that would have gone slightly over his head and traced the true line, if you don’t believe me, get a piece of string…..

Nirmala (The Heron) and other members of the RE Collective (I like that Rama), have done an expert demolition job of the FE maps and “model” posted on the wiki, you know the wiki you keep sending people to when they want stuff clearing up. Only to hear that the maps are not meant to be accurate and don’t represent the “model” and indeed there isn’t anything close to a map especially if we are going to insist on using cartesian coordinates(?), and the times that we are told that sunset/sunrise happen around the world can’t be trusted as nobody we know was in Ulan-Bator to watch the sunset last Tuesday.

And all you can come up with is “Citation needed, re-read the thread, incorrect, irrelevant, more information please?”

As I type this it’s 16.52,  I will check the sunset time that is predicted for hear on the MET office (20.07 Leicester England by the way), get the rest of the community to do the same, see if we can all get a consensus on predicted sunset times.

By all means Tom take whatever you feel necessary, string (dog lead in my case) has its advantages as it’s easy to carry and if you stretch at arm’s length it is very easy to keep straight, but if you doubt your ability to keep a piece of string taut then take a couple of metres of straight material of your choice and do it, I’m sure you will present your meticulous experimentation to us shortly.

Careful here Nirmala, lest they draw you off, see;
http://forum.tfes.org/index.php?topic=5487.msg106775#msg106775

Citation needed, re-read the thread, incorrect, irrelevant, more information please?

The last one is particularly galling, as their favourite “read the Wiki” is a loose conglomeration of dark age babble and hilarious conjecture that gives them room enough to wriggle out of any attempt to nail them down on what they individually believe.

The principles of Zeteticism are to consider all possibilities when formulating a test or conclusion. By not accepting other possibilities your conclusion is to a fault.

Apart from you actually trying out the string experiment it would seem, where your pathological dodging of the issue has become a running joke.

Extremist would be the word I was looking for ( I've changed it).

Wrong again about the FGM, according to UNICEF "in Niger 55 percent of Christian women and girls had experienced it, compared with two percent of their Muslim counterparts", but don't let the facts get in the way.
