Best Eric Dubay videos
« on: October 06, 2017, 07:59:19 AM »
Hi All

I was watching a few Eric Dubay vids last night and then You Tube linked it to many other Flat earth Proof vids. I am keen to watch some good ones that demonstrate the proofs of flat earth. Unfortunately all the ones I watched (Even those with specific titles including"Proofs of flat Earth" etc") were lacking of any actual proof  :'(

They were kinda vague conspiracy threads and seemed more like trailers to the actual proof films than the proofs themselves.

I would really appreciate if any FE'r could post the links to the vids that they feel show the FE position best? Even if anyone was converted as it were by a vid I would love to watch it.

We could then use this thread to discuss/debate them
 :D

I don't remember if it was here, or the other FES forums, but most FE talk I've seen on Dubay label him as fringe even by FE standards, and don't give him much credibility.

Curious Squirrel,

Who in the FE community has any bit of credibility? Honestly just really curious, I am not trying to patronize you.
Scientifically or within the science community? Not sure anyone.

I personally feel there are a couple that I would respect if they were to present experimental results, and be up for discussing and attempting to duplicate or disprove those results. Naming them feels a bit too close to witch hunting by not naming other's so I don't feel comfortable doing that. But look around the forums enough and they stand out imo. I can send you a PM if you're really interested in it, there's at least a few on each forum.

Just trying to see if any credible scientist/mathematician (someone that has advanced degrees from an accredited university) have any good points?

Do you realize how stupid this is? Here is what the :National Center for Science Education, Inc. says

"This textbook contains material on Gravity. Universal Gravity is a theory, not a fact, regarding the natural law of attraction."
"The Universal Theory of Gravity is often taught in schools as a fact, when in fact it is not even a good theory.

First of all, no one has measured gravity for every atom and every star. It is simply a religious belief that it is "universal".

Secondly, school textbooks routinely make false statements. For example, "the moon goes around the earth." If the theory of gravity were true, it would show that the sun's gravitational force on the moon is much stronger than the earth's gravitational force on the moon, so the moon would go around the sun. Anybody can look up at night and see the obvious gaps in gravity theory."

https://ncse.com/library-resource/gravity-its-only-theory

Then there's this little problem with your so called "credible scientist/mathematician" who have yet to figure out what 95% of the universe of their world is. They can blah blah, drop mics but in fact they are retards, less than a child's brain.

Run along now, if you want answers you can address me as J-Man, I'm privy to most everything in life son.
What kind of person would devote endless hours posting scientific facts trying to correct the few retards who believe in the FE? I slay shitty little demons.

Please don't attempt to misrepresent things you find. Your videos are already bad enough at that without you using a satirical article and making it look like they actually have said the material contained therin. It's dishonest in the extreme, and indicates you aren't bothering to read or listen to what you're posting other than finding something that has keywords in it to make it look like it supports your view.

Everyone else get a good look, this is why I don't normally engage with J-man. His post here is appearing to present the contents of the linked article as though it was something they actually said, when in reality the very first sentence of the article tells the reader it's a satirical take on the Evolution shouting match back in 2007. I do apologize if this is considered bad form, but J-man's post seems in poor taste in the extreme here.

As usual, you can't take anything JMAn posts seriously. He provided a link and a quote, probably assuming shallow people would read the quote and see that it had a source and not look any further.

Here is the opening of the article that he skipped over

Quote
This satirical look at "only a theory" disclaimers imagines what might happen if advocates applied the same logic to the theory of gravitation that they do to the theory of evolution.

He appears to believe that people like our Inquisitive Sciuridae friend and I are paid by...someone...to post here.  I'd REALLY like to figure out who does the paying because so far, I've not seen a single paycheck.

The business of "gravity being only a theory" should be expanded upon.

Science uses the word "theory" to mean "the best explanation we have for some phenomenon of nature".  It doesn't mean "some vague idea we have" - it's just recognition, that no matter how solid we think we know something - there is always a possibility (however remote) that a better explanation might one day show up.   Newtons "Laws" of motion seemed to be a totally solid, impossible-to-be-wrong statement of how the universe operates.  But then Einstein showed up and proved them to be only an approximation.   We don't say "Einstein's Law of Relativity"  - we say "Einstein's Theory of Relativity"...because there is always a chance that it too is only an approximation.

But with any theory (or "law") - whatever replaces it has to explain everything that the original law explained...and then add something that it missed.

Newton's law of gravity ('theory') explains a large range of experimentally determined things.   Why planets orbit the sun, why planets and stars form at all.  Why there are galaxies, why things fall when we drop them, why every heavenly body of any size is a sphere and why smaller bodies don't have to be.

Anything that is "wrong" with this thing that's 'only a theory' isn't in these matters.   It would have to be something that provides a better explanation at the scales of quantum theory - or which explains the surprising rate at which the universe is expanding - or which avoids the need for mysterious "dark matter".

This replacement theory would explain all of the things that gravitational theory explains - also in one simple rule.

The Flat Earther's can't do that.  Their theories are a patchwork quilt of dozens of things that have great gaps in them (they can't explain WHY the stars, sun, moon, planets move in the way they do).   Most of the pieces are no more than names. "Celestial currents" for example.  The name is claimed to be an explanation for why things up in the sky move the way they do.   But it doesn't explain anything - it's a name for an explanation that doesn't exist.

Some of the pieces don't fit with experimental evidence.  For example: "Universal acceleration" fails to explain the lesser gravity at the equator and the greater gravity at the poles.   Their half-assed version of gravity has to be switched on and off to explain why some things are pulled by the moon and other things aren't.   Universal acceleration requires that it be ignored or "shielded" by some objects and not others.

So the FE "theory" (it's not really a theory because there is no verifiable experimental evidence - it's a "hypothesis" - an untested idea) isn't a replacement for gravitational theory because it cannot explain things like the tides or the orbits of planets.

If it WAS a replacement for gravitational theory - it would have to explain why the earth is round...something which it exists specifically to avoid.

So blathering on about how "gravity is only a theory" is to misunderstand almost everything.

I've been posting for fun, is getting paid an option? That would be awesome! If you know where I can sign up for that please let me know. Thanks.

Now check out from 24:09. Using the stars to debunk the round earth model

So he says...the Earth rotates, the Earth orbits, the Sun orbits, the galaxy moves...so why to old sundials work?

That's his argument at 24:09 - right?

Well - a sundial only depends on the relative position of sun and earth.  So the fact that the sun orbits and the galaxy moves is irrelevant.

Sundials only work BECAUSE the earth rotates - so that's just fine.  Sundials do need adjusting though - they don't tell the right time through the year because the Earth is tilted on it's axis.   An ancient sundial is no different than a modern sundial - they work equally well, but that's because they are both pretty much the same thing.

His argument is a bunch of "WOW! HOLY COW!" stuff - that's irrelevant to the discussion.   When you trim down what he said to what matters:

1) The earth rotates once every 24 hours.
2) The earth orbits once every 365 days.

It's been doing this at pretty much those speeds for a hundred thousand years.  Nothing has measurably changed to make old sundials not work.

The orbit of the earth introduces errors in sundials - and that error has been the same for a million years at least.

So all we care about is the rotation rate of the earth - and that hasn't changed.

He likes to use "scare tactics" like quoting the linear surface speed (1000 mph he tells us excitedly!) - when all that actually matters for sundials is that the Earth rotates once every 24 hours - which is a speed exactly half as fast as the hour hand on a clock....which (not coincidentally) is why sundials work (when correctly adjusted for the season).

Just another bullshit video...nothing new here at all.

As always 3D provides the science to answer the speculation :-) I didn't consider the sun dial angle but that does raise some questions that the video cant answer. It's a shame that no FE'r has offered a compelling  vid to save me wading through this shit in the hope of finding something challenging. Cheers for your response 3D, you're a legend

Of course this brings up the issue of how sundials would work in FE.  I'm guessing "magic perspective" is a part of the answer :-).

I never really liked Dubay, the conspiracy and Neo-Nazi aspect of him plus the fact that he views the FES and all other planarists departing from him as controlled kinda gets me ignoring him. I don't particularly favor his perspective on flat earth either.
