Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Density and the replacement of gravity.

Incorrect.  Science does have an explanation for how and why gravity works the way it does.  See: bending of space time.

"Magical fairies did it" is also an explanation. Science doesn't know how gravity works. There is a competing theory in quantum mechanics that the mechanism for gravity is a  sub-atomic puller particle called the "graviton".

There was absolutely nothing in the form of evidence or knowledge included in Shaq's statements about the flat earth.  "I drove coast to coast and have seen it".....Sorry, that perception has been explained ad nauseam and can be explained, once again, with facts that do not align with FET.

It's called empericism, which squarely supports FET.

Also, why was the FES making such a big deal out of what some guy said?  He clearly isn't qualified and has a complete lack of any kind of knowledge to make an argument on either side.

You don't even know what credentials or qualifications Shaq has. Shaq almost certainly has greater qualifications than 99% of the RE'ers who come here and make an opinion.

Who told you that there was an edge?

Instead of worrying about the edge, that magically disappeared from FET lore due to technical difficulties in addressing facts that suggest otherwise, why don't you just take an expedition to Antarctica so you can see for yourself that it is neither a border keeping us in this flat earthly prison, nor are there NASA and UN drones flying around killing people who go anywhere near there.

It may make sense to measure some distances and keep track of time while you are on your way.  It may help you finally put together finally put together a map of this flat earth.

What if I believe that antarctica is just a regular continent? What will going there tell me then?

A white point.

ie a satellite moving across the sky.

The thing is that you can get a telescope and see it for yourself.  You just choose not to....

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Density and the replacement of gravity.

There is absolutely no reason what so ever to explain why mass should be inherently attracted to all other mass in the universe.

Sure there is. Of course the most obvious thing is the mass of ourselves and anything around us seemingly being attracted to the mass of the earth.

Also, the apparent movement of the sun, moon and other planets, and, in recent times, satellites.

The problem that TheTruthIsThere is asking is WHY mass attracts other mass...it's true that RE physics doesn't know the reason for it - but that's not a reason to reject that theory.

After all - FE physics can't explain WHY the earth is accelerating upwards - or WHY the planets, sun, moon and "shadow object" do the complicated dance that they are claimed to do.   FET is no better at answering these "WHY?" questions than RET is able to explain why two masses attract each other.

The difference is that in RET, one single theory of gravity explains HOW the motion of all of the stars, moon, planets, meteors and comets happens - as well as explaining the shapes of those things, how they formed in the first place - and why there are eclipses and why there are a phases of the moon.  ALL of those things can be explained by one single, simple equation:    F=G x m1 x m2 / ( r x r ).   All of those complicated explanations in FET (or non-explanations)...are all neatly solved with one very simple equation and one very simple (albeit unexplained) fact.

The ability to predict things is the most beautiful thing about RET physics.   We see from the theory of gravitation that there ought to be black holes - we can calculate what happens if two black holes might collide and how insanely powerful the gravitational wave would be - and how long it would take to reach Earth.  We can build a an actual machine that detects gravitational waves...and the results it produces are a perfect and beautiful match for what we predicted...then we can build a second one and figure out where these black holes are.

All of that comes from that one single equation...it's a thing of beauty.

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Sun Eclipse "Caused & Effects"!
« Last post by Smokified on June 26, 2017, 10:04:00 PM »
During an eclipse the moon is on the same side of the world as the sun is, and therefore the moon is also on the opposite side of the planet, and therefore also not visible.


This confusing me! Are you trying to say that, the moon be in different places at the same time?

I am not sure where there is anything he says that suggests the moon is in 2 different places.  Just look at the picture, it is in 1 place.

Being no stranger to academia, and having survived the 2016 US Presidential election, I decided to do some digging on this claim.
It's a shame you didn't do even the most rudimentary of "digging" around the discussions which were already had about this subject here. Duplicate threads help nobody.

Shaq's non-retraction has been deliberately discredited, and has largely gone unaccepted by even the mainstream media.

There was absolutely nothing in the form of evidence or knowledge included in Shaq's statements about the flat earth.  "I drove coast to coast and have seen it".....Sorry, that perception has been explained ad nauseam and can be explained, once again, with facts that do not align with FET.

You're obviously not interested in having a serious conversation about this. You just want to tell us why you feel we're wrong. Sorry, not interested. If your attitude changes let me know, otherwise not much sense continuing wasting both our time.

I am questioning the flat earth theory with facts.  That is how it works.  You don't go get to just make claims, have no information to support those claims, and then tell the people who disagree with you that they are clueless and you are not having the conversation.

The bottom line is it is YOU that are not interested in having a serious conversation about this.  Every single time anyone flat earther is provided with facts that they don't have an answer for, this is the response.  You are not a victim of anything other than the lies you tell yourself to continue this belief that everyone is lying to you and you are the only enlightened one.

So do as you always do and run away with whatever excuse you need to make for yourself.  Everyone else knows the real reason.

Flat Earth General / Re: Where are the earth pictures?

This is an unedited picture of Earth from the moon



False, that picture was debunked as CGI. There hasn't been 1 picture of the earth that isn't computer generated.

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.
