And space photography is routinely subjected to CG imagery
Space photography is also subject to peer review.  Decent telescopes that can resolve the ISS in orbit aren't all that expensive, so just about anyone can personally see for themselves if the ISS is there or not with only a modest investment.

Please elaborate.  To which "inconsistency with observed reality" are you referring?
You and I have had this discussion many times before. I see no reason to repeat myself if you're not even going to bother trying to remember.
Just because we may or may not have had this discussion before, that doesn't necessarily mean that I ever got a satisfactory answer out of you.

Regardless of the actual velocity, UA theory says that the some mysterious force has been actively accelerating the flat earth upwards for a very, very long time.  How is that more plausible than the more or less a passive phenomenon commonly referred to as gravity?
Presumably you mean gravitation; in which case UA is a superior possibility because it doesn't share gravitation's inconsistency with observed reality.
Please elaborate.  To which "inconsistency with observed reality" are you referring?  Are you suggesting that UA doesn't have its own "inconsistency with observed reality"?

But it is plausible for it to be hurtling 'upwards' at c (or 1000's x c)?
It was already explained to you that this is not even remotely the case. Read up on Special Relativity.

"In a brief televised statement in May, Mueller recounted his report's overall findings, saying Russia launched a "concerted" effort to interfere with the 2016 election. "There were multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election, and that allegation deserves the attention of every American," he said."

So, all the time and effort spent investigating and all he is able to do is state and type the word ALLEGEDLY!!!

LMMFAO!!!
Right, the investigation led to exactly zero indictments, convictions or plea deals.  Oh, wait.

I don't keep up on Twitter, so could someone please cite some of the tweets where any of those women are saying that they hate America?
If they are against Trump, they hate America.  Where have you been?
Under a rock where I'm free to understand the difference between hating the man and hating the office/country.

The United States has something called the First Amendment, so those people could chant what they wanted to chant.
Actually, the fist amendment does have its limits.

Although different scholars view unprotected speech in different ways, there are basically nine categories:

    Obscenity
    Fighting words
    Defamation (including libel and slander)
    Child pornography
    Perjury
    Blackmail
    Incitement to imminent lawless action
    True threats
    Solicitations to commit crimes
Legal scholars can scholar what they wish.

Nothing happened at the rally on which to take legal action.
I didn't say there was.  However, some might consider "send her back" to be fighting words, and thereby not protected speech.


And the President didn't lie.
Lying comes so naturally to Trump that I'm not sure if he even knows when he's lying an when he isn't.
Lying comes naturally to everybody.
Including yourself?  That would explain a lot.

Quote
The theory of gravity is a mathematical interpretation of what we observe in nature. Gravity can be demonstrated, but I don't think there is an absolute proof of the law of gravity, if that is what you are asking. 

I'm asking for a reference that gravitational mass is defined as static and unchanging in all environments.
Gravitational mass is determined by the strength of the gravitational field.  Mass will always be static and constant, but gravitational mass will vary with the strength of the gravitational field.

Again, equal day and night is the definition of the equilux, not the equinox.

IMO the 'congresswoman' who married her brother should genuinely be deported back to Somalia.
What is your proof of that?
I had a look and found people have made that allegation - just like people (Trump being one of them) made allegations about Obama being born in Kenya.
Anyone can make an allegation, where is your proof?


If I remember correctly, she's a Muslim.
Are you saying that Islam allows siblings to marry? ???

How one could support a Semitic group against another Semitic group and be anti-Semitic is beyond me.
That's alright.  How someone could tell 4 duly elected members of Congress to stay out of politics is beyond me too.

B) Omar is in the country illegally.
Incorrect.  She spent 4 years in a Kenyan refugee camp before receiving asylum in the US.

She is a noted Anti-Semite.
Criticizing Israel's treatment of Palestinians does not necessarily make one anti-Semitic.

2) You put a pixel on my e-mail and that somehow tracks me?
Yes.  Embedded images are links that spammers routinely use to track you.  This is why some email readers block embedded images by default.

I can't help but to wonder if it might be the other way around.  You have to reject an awful lot of established science to accept a flat earth, so maybe the anti-vaxxer, moon hoaxer and other similar anti-science movements are a gateway to FE.
Given that the correlation is rarely present (sure, there are some radicals on Twitter and YouTube, but they're in the scarce minority), I don't think either way makes much sense.
From what I've seen of FE'er testimonials, their path to FE usually starts with a mistrust of authority somewhere or other.  Then again, my own personal opinion is that a healthy appreciation for Poe's law is just about as good a reason as any for joining the flat side.  Then again, it could also be a symptom of the failure of the various educational systems.  Who can know for sure?

I make no assertion. What you refer to as my assertion is in the scientific dictionary description of equinox .
https://www.britannica.com/science/equinox-astronomy
https://www.dictionary.com/browse/equinox

You can find more if you wish . 

This is equinox according to heliocentrism - do you not know the model you defend ?

Equinox is a prediction of the heliocentric model which fails in reality hence the waffle required
Please cite where any of those scientific definitions of equinox predict exactly equal day and night.
