Flat Earth Investigations / Re: Pre-satellite measurements of position

Each of the last replies from RE remind of the good ole days of:

broken video

Please refrain from low-content posting in the upper fora. Warned.

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Flat Earth Wiki and the Sun.

Stellar Fusion is entirely hypothetical. No one has recreated it in a lab.

And I suppose your explanation for Stars is: A very small and annoying Man in his back garden with a set of very thick lens spectacles, who probably drives a Peugeot, aiming a projector into the sky?  That’s what I heard on one of the other threads from a fellow FE Bible Basher.

Refrain from low-content posting in the upper fora. Given that you are on three warnings already, have a few days off to read the rules.

tbh i will never understand why y'all constantly bend over backward to make saddam feel as unwelcome as possible.  he doesn't do anything that the rest of us don't do...all the time.

how is what saddam got banned for any different than rushy and i spamming about satisfactory alpha keys literally every day? 

or
<Crudblud>YUH
<beardo>YUH
<junker>YUH
<Franklin>YUH

or the numerous times rushy and i have spammed "Q predicted this."

Gary is correct.

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Map Projections
« on: December 04, 2018, 08:16:08 PM »
Can I take it as no one disagrees with my post that the flat earth community agrees with the points I am making in regard to maps and map projections in general?

Having no replies to a thread within ~1 day is not indicative of whether people agree or disagree. You can interpret it however you want, but refrain from bumping threads without adding anything to them (especially if you are just fishing for whatever confirmation you hope to receive).

Science & Alternative Science / Re: So if the earth is flat?

I'd suggest reading the FAQ and wiki first, then the rules (so you know which forum to post in).

Because the earth is an oblate spheroid. A globe. Easy answer.

Championship Saturday.  Hook em Horns, Roll Tide, and O-H.....I-O.

It’s interesting the level of scrutiny you’re applying to these experiments when you seem to take Rowbotham’s at face value.

You aren't adding anything to the thread with this. If you want to question Tom's position, you can certainly do a better job than a one-liner. Warned.

Their part was moved to CN but I agree with one point they made, maybe don't display publicly information like what school users are from. I'd edit out the names of the schools for privacy concerns even if they are moronic children trolling.

I don't think anyone knew what particular school a given user was from based on Pete's post, but I will go ahead and remove the names until Pete can review and decide if he wants them there or not.

I think a 3-5 day "cool-down" period for any such institution is a good idea (I would also support a longer ban since these people don't ever end up being contributing members). Anyway, I support this.

Seriously???

Okay, for those among us who are hard of hearing, I will spell it out nice and clearly so you can smell what I meant...

How about you stop being so condescending and stick to an argument you would like to make. Warned. You are on two bans already, next one is a month vacation.

Flat Earth Theory / Re: How does Earth get between the Moon & Sun in FET?
« on: November 25, 2018, 08:07:45 PM »

Under the FE hypothesis the sun is only about 32 miles across, and 3000 miles above the flat plane of the Earth

What utter rubbish.  The Sun has been very accurately measured to be in the order of 865,000 miles across and on average 92,960,000 miles away from Earth. These are facts regardless of what the FE hypothesis says. Explain to us exactly how these figures are reached. By that I mean the 32 mile diameter and 3000 mile distance of course... I await in anticipation!
You'll get much farther with these basic questions if you make sure to peek through the wiki for the record. https://wiki.tfes.org/Distance_to_the_Sun Distance and size of the sun is (once again) a natural result of the Earth being flat. If one assumes the Earth is flat, it's easy to see most explanations for things have been....'created' in order to answer what is happening. Observations as well are generally tabulated under the assumption of this paradigm imo. But we're starting to get a bit beyond the thread topic here.
I too am interested in the 32 miles value, since my own maths didn't get that but I am of course basing it on the visual shrinking of the sun relative to moving it closer to the earth based on the difference between the globe earth sun and flat earth sun distances.
By all means continue this line of questioning as it is retentive to the questions I proposed in the opening OP.
One question was how does the moon get between the sun and  FE, to cause the phenomena we see?
Getting to the bottom of how they calculate the size and distance of the sun would help to show how this would work, or not work.
Again I propose looking at the distance of 3,000 miles above the surface of the earth creates enormous problems solar eclipse and much much more.
I suspect this is why no more FET have chimed in with anymore fabricated evidence because even tey now how utterly ridiculous this idea is.

I suggest you spend some time learning the model instead of just telling everyone how round the earth is. There are plenty of resources here to do so. Your constant complaining about how you disagree with FET has no place in the upper fora, since it is obvious you haven’t read the basics.

Last warning. Next one will be a few day vacation to read the rules, as well as the wiki/faq.

EDIT- I forgot how many warnings you were on, and a previous ban. So go ahead and take a week off this time.

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Sun Earth distance
« on: November 25, 2018, 08:02:39 PM »
Still a stony silence from the flat Earthers out there. There are loads of websites that provide a detailed description of how the Earth to Sun distance has been measured over the years and all reach the same answer of (in the order of) 150 million km.  In contrast other than the FES I cannot find one other reference online that suggests only 3000 miles to the Sun. 

So  tell me FE'ers.... how do you reach a figure of 3000 miles?

Stop bumping threads so frequently. If someone wants to reply, they will. Warned.

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Using existing physics to prove the earth is flat
« on: November 25, 2018, 07:41:26 PM »
You cannot use existing Physics to prove that the Earth is flat, because existing Physics says: the Earth isn’t flat.  Duh!

Refrain from low content posting in the upper fora. Warned.

Please shut off your trolling motor, drop anchor, and put out a hook and a line for some facts that you can keep.

Do me a favor and don’t do that. Warned.

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Increased gravity at the poles?
« on: November 20, 2018, 12:08:31 AM »
Are we not allowed to state when we agree with the comments from another member then.  Or just not when it happens to not correspond with the views of the FES?  All part of free speech in my view but if that contravenes your rules then by all means cancel my membership!

You are allowed to agree with anyone you want to. Just add something more to the post so it actually contributes to the conversation (and therefore is not a low-content post). I am not sure why this recent batch of new users (you included) seem to struggle with following a few simple rules without suggesting you are being oppressed, or acting like your free speech is being inhibited.

Also, you can cancel your own membership at any time. Anyway, if you are going to post again, I suggest you stick to the topic. I'll refrain from additional warnings for now.
