Science & Alternative Science / Re: Honey & Lemon

Yes, I take honey and lemon in hot water every morning empty stomach. I lost about 3 pounds in 6 weeks. It helps in improving your metabolism and keeps your digestive system active.  :)

How does it keep your digestive system active?

Dang! Thought it was a bit odd having real female on a flat earth site... :-*

Don't tell me... that line has never worked before. Yeah yeah. I know.

Yeah, I mean, if photons ignored Frame of Reference stuff like that, then any laser you fired would always be off.

Exactly, the speed of light is constant, not the vector.

First, the path of light can bend between any two noninertial FORs. Second, the Earth is hurtling through the Milky Way at precisely the same speed as the moon, the sun and all the other objects under the sun's gravitational influence and can therefore be ignored.

When you do go postal please kill me first as I want not to live in the world you would leave in your wake. Much obliged.

You needn't worry. By insulting The Who, Jura has hastened her own demise. Teams of bullet ants have already been dispatched.

People also have a history of overblowing Trump's actions. It seems better to remain agnostic at this stage when it is just a playground argument.

You can cry about it at your next Klan meeting in Bergen.

Astronomy does not follow the Scientific Method.

Only if you are the one defining the scientific method.

Quote
Observe --> Interpret are the steps used in pseudosciences such as Astrology. It is not science.

Good thing that is not what astronomy does.

So if, instead of boiling the water myself, I'd gone to some natural hot-springs and used my thermometer to measure the temperature of the boiling water that I found there - would Tom accuse me of "Junk science"?

Yes, that is junk science. There are no controls in that observation. If you walked around an alien planet and found something that looked like boiling water you do not know that it is boiling, and you do not know that it is water.

It is too bad you are having trouble reading because you literally just had some of the controls explained to you. If you need clarification, perhaps try asking a well-worded question.

Dipping four thermometers into the bubbling alien liquid does not constitute a controlled experiment.

I am not sure what sort of reaching metaphor you are trying to make, but there is nothing alien about light and gravity.

Ah, didn't see that, thanks.  I could apply but they might not like the airfare. XD
Do it! If you win and they question the airfare, you can cross that bridge when you come to it.
But then I'd go to Texas.  Do I really want to go to Texas?

Everyone I've ever met from Texas seems nice, racist.

Is Archaeology a fake science as well? How does an archaeologist conduct a controlled experiment on past cultures? They only observe and interpret.

By Tom's lights, only chemistry and physics (but not astrophysics) are sciences.

13
Astronomers merely observe and interpret. They do not conduct controlled experiments on the cosmos to come to the truth of a matter. Astronomy is not a real science. Astronomers are fake scientists. Astronomy does not even follow the Scientific Method. The Scientific Method instructs the investigator to conduct a controlled experiment before publishing conclusions. Astronomers are not putting the universe under controlled conditions and conducting experiments. Astronomy is no better than Astrology. Trash.

Your insane insistence that the Scientific Method requires controlled experiments is very tired as is your absurd comparison of astronomers to astrologers.  You simply do not have the knowledge of their methods or techniques necessary to level these criticisms. Please surprise everyone and stop wasting people's time with baseless objections.

Here is a refresher on the Scientific Method:



Now please tell me what experiments Stephen Hawking did on the universe before publishing his theories on the metric expansion of space.

Nice try. Observation, not experimentation is what is important. Observation is tested for sources of error and one way to do this is through laboratory experimentation. It is by no means the only way as you seem to insist.

Do you also think that salt water and grease water cannot mix?

16
Yes, apologies. FoR means frame of reference. For an observer on Earth, light would take a straight line path from the emitter to the moon. For an observer in a different perspective the light may indeed appear to curve. In this case, the acceleration would be coordinate acceleration though, and not proper acceleration and does not require anything other than a non-inertial FoR.

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Disproof: Clouds lit from below at sunset.
« on: October 13, 2017, 01:43:00 AM »
What abt these images???





Well, your first image doesn't work.  We can take photos of under-lit clouds in large deserts where there is no water to reflect the image.


Your second image is the correct one - and it demonstrates that the Earth must be round.

Your image isn't displaying properly unfortunately.

Personally I don't think it should be a method of birth control but there are situations ..... yeah, I guess murder has its comfortable parameter ...
afterall: Life is meaningless & everything dies.

If you don't think there is ever an appropriate time to take the life of another then you are a child. It does not have to be comfortable for it to be justified. You would be hard pressed to find any condemnation in clear-cut self-defense situations. But then, it's. It murder if it's not illegal.

On the topic of abortion, I am not sure where my line is anymore. I used to be an unquestioning pro-choice person that disapproved of abortion as birth control, but not anymore because I am not sure when life begins or what reasonable criteria for such a thing is. (I do know the answer is not in the Bible.)

However, if a woman's life is endangered by a pregnancy, then I have no qualms about aborting it, only sadness. Other situations, like rape, I am not as clear. My knee-jerk is to agree with Jura, because pregnancy and parenthood are not something that should be forced upon anyone through violent coercion but I am not even 100% on that being a fully constituted justification. It's a sticky topic and to pretend otherwise is to be insensitive and unempathetic.

Now please don't make me regret giving a thoughtful answer by resorting to biblical authority.

I'm not sure what you were expecting. Consistency? Integrity?  You're barking up the wrong tree.

The irony of a religious person reading what they want in to my answer is not lost on me .... Don't look at me, you're the one exposing yourself .... eew !!

This doesn't make sense.  Anyway, you should try and steer the titanic away from the icebergs.
