I learn from my predecessors.  Zetetics seem to just ignore all logic and reason.  You tell me the earth is flat and then tell me to do experiments, when millions of experiments have been done already.

Make a thread about such an experiment and we will shoot it to bits.

Shoot anything I say to bits.  The fact is that you people are in denial.  What can you shoot to bits about anything I say?  Nothing, that is what.

Pick an experiment. Put your money where your mouth is.

What about civilians going into space?  What is your lame excuse for that?

What, like the secretary at work or the milkman? Are these civilians regular people that you can ask about it, or media creations no more civilian than Neil Armstrong?

One of my specialities is Space Tourism, and its fraudulent aspects, but that really is a thread of its own.

No, delegates from marketing companies and government stooges have claimed to have gone into space. I could claim to be ten feet tall. But you wouldn't then rush off telling everyone you spoke to a guy who was ten feet tall on the internet.

You need to be a little more selective about the things you are told. Otherwise you just end up being gullible.

I don't need to do research in order to build an electrical circuit.  Why?  Because people have been making electrical circuits for hundreds of years, and I can learn from them, unlike you zetetics.

So when you talk to people who have been building planets, then you can apply that analogy.  I am sure planet-builders have a wealth of experience on the makeup and shape of what they build.

Mark Shuttleworth, the creator of Ubuntu.

Who happened to have a long conversation with Nelson Mandela, the leader of a large country which several years later established its own arm of NASA, while he was in "space"

Also, the creator of Ubuntu is hardly your average joe. Try again.

Are you claiming that Shuttleworth did not go into space?  He spent a lot of money in order to be tricked into thinking so.

Or, alternatively, was paid of lot of money (or paid in other things, or even simply blackmailed) to claim he had gone into space.

You claim that he was forced to say he went to space, or that he was tricked.  Do you have any proof?   ???

It's a simple process of deduction. He claims to have gone into space. One cannot actually go into space. Therefore, he is lying. Why is he lying? Well, he had a long phone call with a prominent world leader who was associated with the NASA conspiracy. Therefore, it is logical to conclude that he was in some way influenced by the conspiracy. Perhaps they threatened his family. Perhaps they offered him money. Perhaps they knew about what he did that time in Thailand. We can only speculate.

That computers work is evidence of the functionality of electrical circuits, so no, you don't need to research circuitry. However, there is no such evidence that proves that the earth is round. It is an assumption.

Shuttleworth is very rich.  I wonder what the incentive is for him to lie.

Bad premises in here. There is evidence you can go in to space. If a premises is false so is the conclusion.
