Flat Earth Debate / Re: Gravity...
« Last post by Smokified on Today at 02:43:25 AM »
Where does this leave us?
I guess it leaves us no other choice but to point out you've gravely and deliberately misrepresented every single scenario you've considered. Why would we waste time discussing matters with someone who's repeatedly showing himself to be uninterested in a fair, honest discussion?

This is honestly a very obvious cop out response.  There is nothing that is misrepresented in his comments.  He points out well known flat earth theories and explains why they don't work.  What is a fair and honest discussion to you?  If he is wrong, discuss why.  If something is misrepresented, explain how.  This always seems to be the method taken by flat earth believers when they are presented with facts they don't have an explanation for.  A rational person would at least consider the facts.

The bottom line is that there are plenty of very simple observable facts that dismantle flat earth theory.

So what about these "massive ice walls" seen in this picture are to prevent anyone from traveling past this point and gathering actual proof of this edge or the supposed dome that keeps us all in?

What is the distance between this border of ice and the actual supposed edge of the planet?

It's unknown if there even is an edge.

So a video on the internet with a specific objective is somehow more credible than mountains of observable evidence?

Every single argument for a flat earth falls apart when real facts are applied.  There is not a shred of physical evidence, simply misinterpretations, oversimplifications, or just a gross ignorance of the forces at work.

Well I know what I know and no amount of convoluted math is gonna change what I can figur out from commen sense!

The thing is, that you don't know.  You are simply making things up that seem to make sense to you to justify your position instead of being objective and looking at all of the available information.

I am not sure where you get the idea that you dictate common sense.  What your are saying is neither common, nor does it make any sense.

People won't believe just a map. That's why I want somebody to travel to the edge and filming it. If they can see a physical edge, then they'll believe. If enough people get a kickstarter together, then people will wake up.

The reason why nobody will do it is because the edge does not exist.

You better take a small army with you and be prepared for a fight to the death.
Don't forget the UN's so called Antartica Treaty is there to stop anyone and everyone.
Other solo explorers have died there recently, Just be careful what you wish for.

There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever to support the idea that there is some kind of military force protecting the supposed massive border preventing people from seeing this non-existent edge.  Do you know how many people it would take to be effective at keeping people out over a distance this large?

Also, you are more than welcome to visit both poles.  Look it up.  With all of the followers of FET, you should have no problems raising enough money to fund this trip.

I have seen the edge. There was a bunch of pirates going over it with their pirate ship. And then they found an another pirate who looked like a Johnny Depp.

And, sorry to say, I didn't believe it. But that doesn't change the fact that the film exists and I saw it. And I'm pretty much sure that if I see the edge again, filmed by someone else, I'm not going to believe that either.

The fact that there isn't even an attempt to falsify a picture of this edge should be an indication that it doesn't exist.

Yeah, he has been very critical of Sarkeesian. But to have an outspoken anti-harassment, anti-bullying advocate use her platform as a panelist to start slinging insults at an audience member seems hypocritical in the extreme.

word, i can totally see what you mean.  tbh neither of them seems like they'd be much fun at a party.

in her defense, i think there's a difference between the kind of harassment she's rallying against and calling someone a name at a conference.  i don't think her advocacy reduces to 'never be mean, ever.'  i think it's more like 'please stop threatening to rape me every time i play a video game or make a blog post.'  which, to rooster's point, would probably get frustrating.

She has actually specifically referenced almost exactly the same type of attacks as the biggest segment of the problem. I think she calls them "you suck" comments.

well, it sounds to me that Mr. Dither has a Biblical Salvation .... how bout you Mr. Roundy ?

Being a Flat Earth Christian has been difficult for me.
My own church silenced me, I was not allowed to discus the issue at all.
Within two weeks I was forced to leave for conscience sake, to them, I suppose I am an apostate now.
My wife does not believe in FET and either does anyone I know. We attend seperate church's now.
My secular friends are more supportive than my Christian friends who regard me as a heretic.

I have yet to meet a single Christian Flat Earther,

If I met a version of myself from three months ago, I'd be having some serious arguments with that guy regarding the shape of the earth. I don't think we would get on at all.  ::)
