The rotation of stars in FET
« on: April 10, 2015, 02:50:35 PM »
2. There are circumpolar stars in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Their centres of rotation are always either due North or due South respectively. The stars in between rise and set on the horizon much like the sun does. There is no flat Earth model which can account for this.

The other thread isn't going anywhere. Lets move on to reason 2. I want to set a restriction on this one, consider it a challenge. I want you to give an account of the circumpolar stars that doesn't involve any concepts that aren't scientific. No strange ideas about whirlpools in space. Just a straight forward explanation that only uses standard geometry, optics and physics. If you want to argue that there are no circumpolar stars in the Southern hemisphere please don't waste my time. This challenge is premised on the assumption that there are circumpolar stars in the Southern hemisphere, the evidence that there are is overwhelming. To suggest that there aren't is to invoke a conspiracy of epic proportions.

You have a lot of restrictions.  It is like me asking you to explain gravity without drawing upon magical gravitrons or bendy space time.  Perhaps you should rethink your topic?

Can I ask any round Earth proponents not to reply to any comments that don't lie within the specifications I made. I know it sounds cheeky but if you start responding to irrelevant points the thread will very quickly be derailed and become clogged up with pointless arguments that don't go anywhere.

This is a thread about the circumpolar stars and explanations that stick to what is scientifically viable and geometrically possible. If you want to start a thread about this in which you welcome talk about pseudo scientific nonsense like aetheric whirlpools then feel free.

If we start responding to comments like the one jroa just made it they will do to this thread what they did to the other thread.

Given that most FET models do not rely on what you would consider to be "standard" geometry, optics, or physics, this thread is biding to become quite barren indeed.

Your challenge is essentially "Assuming RET is true, prove FET is true". Given that RET and FET are mutually exclusive, your challenge is insoluble by design.

How would you feel if I asked you to prove RET without wasting my time with, say, universal gravitation? It *has to* accelerate upwards at 9.81ms^-2, but so long as you stick to that simple restriction, please prove RET!

It was understood long before modern science that the Earth was round. Round Earth Theory is not premised on modern science and round Earth belief was not some sort of axiom of modern science from which all else was deduced. It is just about conceivable within science that we could be on a giant flat plane accelerating upwards at 9.8 ms-2. It's just that what we would observe would be totally different.

What I am asking is perfectly reasonable and would not be considered a strange request in any other debate. That fact that it is considered almost cheating in a flat Earth debate indicates the you can only believe the Earth is flat if you are out of step with pretty much the whole of humanity and believe things that cannot be substantiated by science.

That's a completely spurious comparison. All I am asking is that we are all playing by the same rules. The same rules the whole of the human race would expect to play by. What is so strange about that? Doesn't it suggest to you that there is something far wrong with flat Earth belief that you can't do that?


I am setting up a challenge, why are you all being so childish about it?

Also, moderator, can I assume that Dr David Thork's post will be sent to angry ranting or complete nonsense?

You won't consider anything that doesn't constitute a round earth as anything but pseudo-scientific.

Regarding my chess comparison, this is an analogy to your request. You are saying, only use theories that mainstream round earth protagonists accept and then arrive at a flat earth. It is an absurd request.

I am asking something that would be not be considered strange in any other context I can think of. Give an account of something that sticks to the basic things that are well established about geometry, optics and physics. I don't even need to assume gravity to prove the Earth is round. Just reasonable assumptions about geometry and optics. Things like: when an object moves away from you it looks smaller. There is no other context in the world in which even that would be considered a questionable and unreasonable assumption.

If you can't do this doesn't it indicate that there is something far wrong with what you believe?

Let me say this again...

It is just about conceivable within modern science that the Earth is a giant plane accelerating upwards at a constant rate of 9.8 ms-2. However, what we would see would be totally different. I am not precluding the possibility of a flat Earth within the bounds of science. Therefore, to say I am asking you to argue for a flat Earth assuming a round Earth to be true is a false statement.

I recently sent a pm to someone explaining basic flat earth theory starting with cosmology. What you choose to do with that is up to you.

Cosmology. How do the stars and planets work? Seems like a sensible question. Its a question that leads to the ultimate truth about earth and its creation.

I like to start to explain this with Aristotle because he is the first person in history to discover the truth and from it ... deduce the one true faith. In his book metaphysics he explains how the heavens move. And he's very close. He describes the heavens as having either 47 or 55 movers. And an unmoved mover or prime mover that you can equate to God (that equate to God is vital). And look how odd that is. He believes in monotheism - in 350BC! When all around him are worshipping rivers and the sun and the god of war etc. The reason he has 47 or 55 is because he calculates there should be 55 but can only account for 47. That's likely because he didn't know about Neptune, Ceres, Pluto, Uranus etc because telescopes weren't that good. His books are fascinating. The stars are on two movers.

It always makes me laugh when noobs point this image out to me as proof the earth is round. Its the opposite. It proves Aristotle is right. The sun is on a mover, the moon, comets, each planet on its own mover, the moons of Jupiter share a mover. Imagine them to be like giant invisible cogs in the sky and as each one turns the others move with it and so you get the perfect and predictable movement of the heavens. We call them 'celestial gears'.

When we map out the heavens in a flat earth way with the earth at the centre you get a shape like this.

And people protest, how does that work with gears? ...  What about retrograde motion?

Did you ever have a spirograph as a kid? That uses cogs to draw shapes? What shapes did you get?
https://lmddgtfy.net/?q=spirograph%20!gi
That's how the heavens interact. Like giant discs and the planets are situated on a part of each disk that move as a consequence of each other, and back to the unmoved mover. Give me a spirograph kit with 55 of the right shaped cogs and I'll draw the heavens for you. We often get criticised our flat earth cosmology can't work mathematically. the fact you can map it using gears proves the maths and physics is spot on. We can model the heavens. Its a ridiculous accusation we can't. Its RET that doesn't model properly.

Lets use more history to cross check this theory.
You'll see the image below a lot but few understand its meaning. Its a marker. Every true flat earther for hundreds of years recognises the imagery immediately. The Flammarion woodcut.

It is based on what is now a myth ... we can't or haven't been able to prove it is real.
Quote from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flammarion_engraving
This legend includes the story of three monks (Theophilus, Sergius, and Hyginus) who "wished to discover the point where the sky and the earth touch"[8] (in Latin: ubi cœlum terræ se conjungit).[9] After recounting the legend[10] he remarks that "the preceding monks hoped to go to heaven without leaving the earth, to find 'the place where the sky and the earth touch,' and open the mysterious gateway which separates this world from the other. Such is the cosmographical notion of the universe; it is always the terrestrial valley crowned by the canopy of the heavens."

In the legend of St. Macarius, the monks do not in fact find the place where earth and sky touch. In Les mondes imaginaires Flammarion recounts another story:
So its the 6th century and a monk pulls back the curtain of the sky to see the workings of the heavens. You can see the gears top left. Only they aren't gears. That is a very special symbol. It is an orphanim.
They appear everywhere. They are described by Christianity as a lower order of angel like cherubs but they are in wheel form. This is Christianity trying to equate the forces in the heavens to its own theology.
Sick of posting large pictures ... click here
They are the wheels on God's chariot in this depiction.

Lets go to a different bit of history. Isaac Newton. A sworn enemy of the flat earth society. Did you know he was a Deist?. His work let him to become one. Deism is founded on the belief that the universe is set in motion by a creator. Not a creator that gives a shit about people praying or individuals. Just that a creator created the earth and heavens and that is all. And one of the pillars is a believe in a clockwork universe.
Newton could see the heavens moving and the mathematics behind it and new it was all determined. Where the sun will be in 4 hours time, where Jupiter will appear in the sky in 40 years etc etc. He believed the exact same thing as Aristotle all those years earlier. That a creator set the heavens in motion. Nothing else. No constant praying or holy wars or thou shalt not kill or any of that.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watchmaker_analogy
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Architect_of_the_Universe
Look at other Deists. Benjamin Franklin, Boyle who discovered the gas constants, Thomas Jefferson, Voltaire, Neil Armstrong, Stephen Hawking, freemasons, the illuminati ... all of the enemies of the flat earth society. The people in power. Those that would know. And do you know what is odd? If you poll our society which religion always comes out as number 2 on the list behinds the hoards of atheists?
http://forum.tfes.org/index.php?topic=666.0
Deism. An odd choice, no? For what is supposed to be a defunct religion that no one knows about. We share the same religion as the most powerful men in history and the illuminati, because that is where the truth leads. Its confirmation that we know we are right. We know what our enemies know.

Both Newton and Aristotle were tasked with the same job. Hide the truth, prove the earth to be round. Galileo the same. Galileo actually recanted. But his job was to destroy the catholic church ... also enemies of the illuminati. And he tried to do that by discrediting the texts the same way Aristotle did. There is a very interesting artefact. Its a big fuck you to the population of people's on earth. the middle finger of modernity.. Galileo's middle finger in a glass jar. The middle finger has always meant the same thing. the Romans used it. It is the symbol of the phallus. The big fuck you. Examine the word modernity.
Quote from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modernity
As a historical category, modernity refers to a period marked by a questioning or rejection of tradition; the prioritization of individualism, freedom and formal equality; faith in inevitable social, scientific and technological progress and human perfectibility; rationalization and professionalization; a movement from feudalism (or agrarianism) toward capitalism and the market economy; industrialization, urbanization and secularization; the development of the nation-state and its constituent institutions (e.g. representative democracy, public education, modern bureaucracy) and forms of surveillance (Foucault 1995, 170–77).
Its a message from the elite. The capitalists, those that run the stock exchange, the Rothchilds and Rockefellas of this world today. You can't have the truth. You are to serve us and look to us as God. We rule and you obey.

I was gutted when I saw Mark Sergant's video 'hiding god' as the final in his series. He was so close and then missed. The whole point of the conspiracy is to remove you from God. If you knew how the earth worked, how special it is and its place in the centre of the universe you would see what God is. God is the force, the energy, the thing that created the universe. Not a man with a beard or fairy that grants wishes or a pschyopath that instructs one nation to go to war with another. To understand God and why they hide him you must understand the purpose of religion.

Religion is a blue print for civilisation. All religions share common themes. There is law. Thou shall not kill, thou shall not steal. In Islam they have sharia law. All religious books do. Its a way to keep order. To make people think they are being watched when no one is around and prevent crime. Remember there were no forensics until recently. All religions have praying, songs, worship, kneeling or bowing. Ways of brain washing you into constantly making you think about them (attending church, 5 am prayers whatever) and surrendering to a higher power. They also have a human or organisation between you and God. the pope and Vatican, religious leaders, divine right kings. Religion is used so you obey leaders and follow order.
Religion also provides other things. A reason to make men die for you. Crusades, Jihads etc. It is the elite making you look to them.

New Atheism is a new religion. It is belief based. They believe there is no God. And I find the likes of Richard Dawkins very amusing. He is setting out to disprove God. He wishes to know all the science and hopes it will kill belief in God. But mathematics is god's language. Its the way everything is described. Let there be light has some truth. God did say that. He described it in his own language and it was so. If Richard Dawkins ever discovered how something can be from nothing, the forces that created the universe, do you know what he'd have to call that thing? God. Richard Dawkins can only disprove God by discovering God. The irony is delicious.

Atheism is designed to remove you from organised religion. An illuminati goal for hundreds of years. They don't want your money going there. They want it. Money is power. Atheism is designed to make you feel small and insignificant. you are on one of trillions of planets orbiting trillions of stars on a tiny spec of dust and you are meaningless. Its a horrible religion. It takes hope from the downtrodden, comfort from the bereaved, strength from the sick, justice from those who have been wronged. Its the only religion that takes everything from you and offers nothing in return. If a 5 year old child is dying of cancer and asks "will I see mummy again?" all religions are designed to comfort her ... you will see her in heaven. Atheism tells her she's worm food.

So why the movement to atheism now? Its about replacing God. you are told by shills like Edward Snowden that the state sees everything you do. Tracks your every move, listens to your every phone call, monitors your social media, reads all your e-mails. They claim to be all seeing ... like God. Its actually bollocks. Have you tried using Siri? that dumb thing can't even find me a McDonalds. How is it going to decipher a conversation on a phone. You think the NSA have better technology than Apple, Microsoft, Intel? With hundreds of billions in R&D budget? you think they have better voice recognition from that paltry 'black budget' of theirs? I see things like "They'd need quantum computers to crack encryption so they must have quantum computers". No they don't The NSA out techs Intel when that is all Intel do? Bollocks. They have secret weapons no one knows about that can read thoughts or fly at hypersonic speeds? That one government budget is used to out tech the entire private sector? Its rubbish.
They want you to look to the state as a God. It is omnipotent and it is all powerful (has crazy weapons you can only imagine).
Below is a video from the 60's when they were trying out subliminal messages on the public in America. Note the subliminal message at about 40 seconds in.

"God is real, God is watching, believe in Governement God". Chilling stuff. Fortunately subliminal messages don't really work, so we aren't all mindless zombies at this stage.


You posted we don't believe in conspiracies. Most conspiracies are made up to get you thinking they see everything. Know everything, and you need to obey. The truth is government never out does the private sector. Its why they buy weapons from private firms like Lockheed and computers and servers from Cisco. Tech hasn't really moved on since the 60's. Processors got smaller. Everything else is just small improvements. The entire car industry makes slightly better engines with all that R&D. Few real drugs have been discovered by pharma since the 60s. All the best ones like anti-biotics, steroids, major vaccines have been around for decades. there is no amazing tech. Its hyped to make you think you are helpless against an all powerful state. If Snowden had really been a whistle blower, the news would not have been allowed to report his work. Its orchestrated. The press is controlled. Its about you thinking they are God. As its always been. And that is why they hide the reality of the universe from you. To control you. That's the reason for the conspiracy. Its not complicated. And before you say "but we see things like the SR-71 after they are commissioned ... you think that's a leap? It has jet engines (been around since the late 40's), they stuck cones on the front to compress the air (Like a turbo on a car from the 70's), and could now contain the heat using better alloys thanks to the private sector. But it just made a plane a bit faster and a bit higher. Its not like believing they decrypt 30 billion e-mails a day and decipher several million phone calls. 

So Aurora ... nope ... NASA lies and hype. Roswell Aliens with secret technology. Don't be silly. They'd love you to think they have that. HARP ... literally studies the make up of the atmosphere.

So back to FET. FET is beautiful and everything matches. You can seamlessly explain one thing from another to another. Its the reason for everything, its the only thing that matters. That's the truth they hide. And mathematics and science are the answer. They are the tools we can use to prove we are right. We need only speak the language of God to reveal Him (it). From fibbonachi sequences to explain the petals on a plant, the ratios of bones in our hand and the shape of a snails shell, to the movement of the heavens, to probabilities, chaos, and ultimately how something came from noting.

We don't use conjecture. I saw the video about the ISS for example saying how there where perms and it looks like its done in a studio etc etc. That won't convince the public. We use maths and physics.
Quote from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermosphere
The International Space Station has a stable orbit within the middle of the thermosphere, between 320 and 380 kilometres
Quote from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermosphere
Thermospheric temperatures increase with altitude due to absorption of highly energetic solar radiation. Temperatures are highly dependent on solar activity, and can rise to 2,000 °C (3,630 °F).
Quote from: http://www.onlinemetals.com/meltpt.cfm
Melting Points of Various Metals
Celsius (c)
Copper 1083
Steel 1371
Now I have something the public can use. The ISS with its delicate little solar panels flies about in a level of the atmosphere at 2000 degrees C when the melting point of steel is just 1300 degrees. And Astronauts get out and casually use metal screwdrivers in their little cotton NASA suits on space walks in the very place where incoming meteors vaporise in seconds at the very same speeds as the ISS flies (22,000mph) and NASA itself claims to use heat shields on returning spacecraft. Now who looks dumb? Us claiming its green screen cos it looks shady or people who swallow that ISS horseshit about it orbiting in the thermosphere?

Anyway, I've been all over the place. I don't actually specialise in cosmology. My areas of expertise are 'space tourism' and the history of the flat earth society. But basic FET cosmology seems a sensible place to start.

Oh, I forgot. I haven't told you what shape the earth is yet. Its not a disk, lol. Its more of a splat. We just use the disk as it makes a nice little logo. I have a map but the reasoning is more long winded than this basic outline of cosmology. We use ocean currents etc to determine the shape. But its finite and has an edge. I'll save it for another day.

And everything is finite. the atoms in the universe, the number of grains of sand on a beach, the distance to the furthest star in millimetres, the probability of anything. There is no infinite. It is not a number. Nothing in the universe is infinite. Its really not a word in God's vocabulary - he is infinity. Ergo the earth isn't infinite. We see infinite in nature absolutely no where. The earth must have an edge. Whenever a scientist uses the word infinite, he is evoking God. "there must have been infinite heat and pressure at the big bang". nope. It didn't happen. "Our maths fails as we get back to the big bang". Yes because it didn't happen. "There could be an infinite number of universes and ours is one that just happened to work" awful atheist you are small and insignificant argument ... nature/god doesn't do infinite.

I'm not trying to convince you to being Deist by the way. Deists don't preach. There isn't much to preach. But globular science leads people to atheism and the same way, being a flat earther inevitably leads to Deism.  I used to be an atheist myself (I have a degree in aerospace engineering and used to do aerodynamics on wings for aircraft, then I became a pilot, and now I work in IT and program in many languages). I was always going to become atheist (christened a Catholic). But I finally settled on Deism. The religion of those I despise. I love irony.  ;)

So know you have a flavour of FET. We have archives on any subject you like. Geology, meteorology, all kinds of earth sciences. you just got a crash course. I hope it makes sense. I suspect I missed out too much to really prove the points I was making but I can reply with more if you need it.

Benjamin Franklin, Boyle who discovered the gas constants, Thomas Jefferson, Voltaire, Neil Armstrong, Stephen Hawking, freemasons, the illuminati ... all of the enemies of the flat earth society. The people in power. Those that would know. And do you know what is odd? If you poll our society which religion always comes out as number 2 on the list behinds the hoards of atheists?

Deism. An odd choice, no? For what is supposed to be a defunct religion that no one knows about. We share the same religion as the most powerful men in history and the illuminati, because that is where the truth leads. Its confirmation that we know we are right. We know what our enemies know.

Both Newton and Aristotle were tasked with the same job. Hide the truth, prove the earth to be round. Galileo the same. Galileo actually recanted. But his job was to destroy the catholic church ... also enemies of the illuminati. And he tried to do that by discrediting the texts the same way Aristotle did. There is a very interesting artefact. Its a big fuck you to the population of people's on earth. the middle finger of modernity.. Galileo's middle finger in a glass jar. The middle finger has always meant the same thing. the Romans used it. It is the symbol of the phallus. The big fuck you. Examine the word modernity.
Quote from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modernity
As a historical category, modernity refers to a period marked by a questioning or rejection of tradition; the prioritization of individualism, freedom and formal equality; faith in inevitable social, scientific and technological progress and human perfectibility; rationalization and professionalization; a movement from feudalism (or agrarianism) toward capitalism and the market economy; industrialization, urbanization and secularization; the development of the nation-state and its constituent institutions (e.g. representative democracy, public education, modern bureaucracy) and forms of surveillance (Foucault 1995, 170–77).
Its a message from the elite. The capitalists, those that run the stock exchange, the Rothchilds and Rockefellas of this world today. You can't have the truth. You are to serve us and look to us as God. We rule and you obey.

I was gutted when I saw Mark Sergant's video 'hiding god' as the final in his series. He was so close and then missed. The whole point of the conspiracy is to remove you from God. If you knew how the earth worked, how special it is and its place in the centre of the universe you would see what God is. God is the force, the energy, the thing that created the universe. Not a man with a beard or fairy that grants wishes or a pschyopath that instructs one nation to go to war with another. To understand God and why they hide him you must understand the purpose of religion.

Religion is a blue print for civilisation. All religions share common themes. There is law. Thou shall not kill, thou shall not steal. In Islam they have sharia law. All religious books do. Its a way to keep order. To make people think they are being watched when no one is around and prevent crime. Remember there were no forensics until recently. All religions have praying, songs, worship, kneeling or bowing. Ways of brain washing you into constantly making you think about them (attending church, 5 am prayers whatever) and surrendering to a higher power. They also have a human or organisation between you and God. the pope and Vatican, religious leaders, divine right kings. Religion is used so you obey leaders and follow order.
Religion also provides other things. A reason to make men die for you. Crusades, Jihads etc. It is the elite making you look to them.

New Atheism is a new religion. It is belief based. They believe there is no God. And I find the likes of Richard Dawkins very amusing. He is setting out to disprove God. He wishes to know all the science and hopes it will kill belief in God. But mathematics is god's language. Its the way everything is described. Let there be light has some truth. God did say that. He described it in his own language and it was so. If Richard Dawkins ever discovered how something can be from nothing, the forces that created the universe, do you know what he'd have to call that thing? God. Richard Dawkins can only disprove God by discovering God. The irony is delicious.

Atheism is designed to remove you from organised religion. An illuminati goal for hundreds of years. They don't want your money going there. They want it. Money is power. Atheism is designed to make you feel small and insignificant. you are on one of trillions of planets orbiting trillions of stars on a tiny spec of dust and you are meaningless. Its a horrible religion. It takes hope from the downtrodden, comfort from the bereaved, strength from the sick, justice from those who have been wronged. Its the only religion that takes everything from you and offers nothing in return. If a 5 year old child is dying of cancer and asks "will I see mummy again?" all religions are designed to comfort her ... you will see her in heaven. Atheism tells her she's worm food.

So why the movement to atheism now? Its about replacing God. you are told by shills like Edward Snowden that the state sees everything you do. Tracks your every move, listens to your every phone call, monitors your social media, reads all your e-mails. They claim to be all seeing ... like God. Its actually bollocks. Have you tried using Siri? that dumb thing can't even find me a McDonalds. How is it going to decipher a conversation on a phone. You think the NSA have better technology than Apple, Microsoft, Intel? With hundreds of billions in R&D budget? you think they have better voice recognition from that paltry 'black budget' of theirs? I see things like "They'd need quantum computers to crack encryption so they must have quantum computers". No they don't The NSA out techs Intel when that is all Intel do? Bollocks. They have secret weapons no one knows about that can read thoughts or fly at hypersonic speeds? That one government budget is used to out tech the entire private sector? Its rubbish.

You posted we don't believe in conspiracies. Most conspiracies are made up to get you thinking they see everything. Know everything, and you need to obey. The truth is government never out does the private sector. Its why they buy weapons from private firms like Lockheed and computers and servers from Cisco. Tech hasn't really moved on since the 60's. Processors got smaller. Everything else is just small improvements. The entire car industry makes slightly better engines with all that R&D. Few real drugs have been discovered by pharma since the 60s. All the best ones like anti-biotics, steroids, major vaccines have been around for decades. there is no amazing tech. Its hyped to make you think you are helpless against an all powerful state. If Snowden had really been a whistle blower, the news would not have been allowed to report his work. Its orchestrated. The press is controlled. Its about you thinking they are God. As its always been. And that is why they hide the reality of the universe from you. To control you. That's the reason for the conspiracy. Its not complicated. And before you say "but we see things like the SR-71 after they are commissioned ... you think that's a leap? It has jet engines (been around since the late 40's), they stuck cones on the front to compress the air (Like a turbo on a car from the 70's), and could now contain the heat using better alloys thanks to the private sector. But it just made a plane a bit faster and a bit higher. Its not like believing they decrypt 30 billion e-mails a day and decipher several million phone calls. 

So Aurora ... nope ... NASA lies and hype. Roswell Aliens with secret technology. Don't be silly. They'd love you to think they have that. HARP ... literally studies the make up of the atmosphere.

So back to FET. FET is beautiful and everything matches. You can seamlessly explain one thing from another to another. Its the reason for everything, its the only thing that matters. That's the truth they hide. And mathematics and science are the answer. They are the tools we can use to prove we are right. We need only speak the language of God to reveal Him (it). From fibbonachi sequences to explain the petals on a plant, the ratios of bones in our hand and the shape of a snails shell, to the movement of the heavens, to probabilities, chaos, and ultimately how something came from noting.

We don't use conjecture. I saw the video about the ISS for example saying how there where perms and it looks like its done in a studio etc etc. That won't convince the public. We use maths and physics.
Quote from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermosphere
The International Space Station has a stable orbit within the middle of the thermosphere, between 320 and 380 kilometres
Quote from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermosphere
Thermospheric temperatures increase with altitude due to absorption of highly energetic solar radiation. Temperatures are highly dependent on solar activity, and can rise to 2,000 °C (3,630 °F).
Quote from: http://www.onlinemetals.com/meltpt.cfm
Melting Points of Various Metals
Celsius (c)
Copper 1083
Steel 1371
Now I have something the public can use. The ISS with its delicate little solar panels flies about in a level of the atmosphere at 2000 degrees C when the melting point of steel is just 1300 degrees. And Astronauts get out and casually use metal screwdrivers in their little cotton NASA suits on space walks in the very place where incoming meteors vaporise in seconds at the very same speeds as the ISS flies (22,000mph) and NASA itself claims to use heat shields on returning spacecraft. Now who looks dumb? Us claiming its green screen cos it looks shady or people who swallow that ISS horseshit about it orbiting in the thermosphere?

Anyway, I've been all over the place. I don't actually specialise in cosmology. My areas of expertise are 'space tourism' and the history of the flat earth society. But basic FET cosmology seems a sensible place to start.

Oh, I forgot. I haven't told you what shape the earth is yet. Its not a disk, lol. Its more of a splat. We just use the disk as it makes a nice little logo. I have a map but the reasoning is more long winded than this basic outline of cosmology. We use ocean currents etc to determine the shape. But its finite and has an edge. I'll save it for another day.

And everything is finite. the atoms in the universe, the number of grains of sand on a beach, the distance to the furthest star in millimetres, the probability of anything. There is no infinite. It is not a number. Nothing in the universe is infinite. Its really not a word in God's vocabulary - he is infinity. Ergo the earth isn't infinite. We see infinite in nature absolutely no where. The earth must have an edge. Whenever a scientist uses the word infinite, he is evoking God. "there must have been infinite heat and pressure at the big bang". nope. It didn't happen. "Our maths fails as we get back to the big bang". Yes because it didn't happen. "There could be an infinite number of universes and ours is one that just happened to work" awful atheist you are small and insignificant argument ... nature/god doesn't do infinite.

I'm not trying to convince you to being Deist by the way. Deists don't preach. There isn't much to preach. But globular science leads people to atheism and the same way, being a flat earther inevitably leads to Deism.  I used to be an atheist myself (I have a degree in aerospace engineering and used to do aerodynamics on wings for aircraft, then I became a pilot, and now I work in IT and program in many languages). I was always going to become atheist (christened a Catholic). But I finally settled on Deism. The religion of those I despise. I love irony.  ;)

So know you have a flavour of FET. We have archives on any subject you like. Geology, meteorology, all kinds of earth sciences. you just got a crash course. I hope it makes sense. I suspect I missed out too much to really prove the points I was making but I can reply with more if you need it.

Can you post this on a separate thread, it's not relevant to what I asked.

Why?  Because it does not support RET?
