Value of the Bishop Constant
« on: August 29, 2018, 10:58:12 AM »

β - the Bishop constant, named in honour of the great Flat Earth zetetic Dr. Tom Bishop, which defines the magnitude of the acceleration on a horizontal light ray due to Dark Energy. When the theory is complete, attempts will be made to measure this experimentally.

What is the numeric value of the Bishop constant?

That depends. Gravity is a constant ... but gravity isn't always the same. In RET constants aren't constant. I'm yet to work out if your variables vary.

To that end, the Bishop constant can be like an RET constant. It changes to suit the situation.

Then the constant's value is derived from a formula.  What is that formula?  Is there any way for anyone to demonstrate the validity of the equation listed in the wiki?

The method of deriving G doesn't change to suit a situation. And I thought flat earthers don't believe in gravity? 

If you don't know what it is, don't make an excuse.  Just leave it for someone who does know.....if there IS anyone.  Perhaps there's a paper out there which explains how this constant came to be.

Awesome, Baby Thork!  Thanks.  Great read.  Do you know if there has been any progress on this work?  He sounded pretty busy with other things while working on it back in 2009.

The value of "Big G" does not vary. Measurements get more precise though.  Hopefully you understand the difference? Something something engineering degree.

I believe it may have been Parsifal who came up with the equation? I didn't work on it, and do not know if the value is static or variable. I would assume that it is static, however.

Understood, Tom.  Thanks.  Do you trust Parsifal's reference to dark energy to be reliable, considering your view on NASA and space travel?  Dark energy has only been observed in space through NASA instruments located in space (Chandra X-ray Observatory, Hubble, etc.).  This is in direct contradiction to the flat earth society position on space travel, and calls into question the viability of EAT as it is currently presented.
