Step One: Establish your latitude and longitude.
Step Two: Find a pole (with a base so the pole can stand erect without additional support) of known height.
Step Three: Measure the length of the shadow cast by the erect pole.
Step Five: Go to timeanddate.com and find the distance between you and the solar noon of the Sun at the time of the measurement.
Step Six: Do the math. The distance from the base of the pole to the end of the shadow (vertex of the angle) establishes a precise relationship with the distance between the Sun and vertex of the angle.

I think you will find the height of the Sun over the flat earth lane to be approximately 5600 miles.

Flat Earth Investigations / What is wrong with this...

Observer witnesses a distance measured along the base to an object is 1700 miles.

Object top is an unknown distance above the earth but can be seen.

A ten foot tall pole (as measured from the baseline to the top of the pole) is situated between the observer so the top of the object can be seen just above the pole. Observer is three feet away from the pole.

Object computes to have a height of roughly 5600 miles above the surface.

Suggestions & Concerns / Pete is behaving irrationally...PART TWO!
« on: July 16, 2018, 11:20:01 AM »
My reason for rejecting it is that I believe space travel is impossible.
This is where I have a problem with the FE mentality. You believe in a flat earth and your FE model means space travel is impossible.
It is apparent to all your problem lies not with "FE mentality": rather, it concerns a lack of simple reading comprehension and unbelievable leaps toward unfounded conclusions.

There is nothing about "FE mentality" demanding schpayzze travel to be an impossibility.

There ARE MANY RE-tards who claim schpayzze travel is an impossibility; indeed, I would venture there are MORE RE-tards who claim schpayzze travel is bogus.

JRowe never made a connection between imaginary schpayzze travel and FE or DET.

As far as the OP is concerned, I will be performing a very simple experiment in the next few days to see for myself.

I will post the results here.
In response, Pete posts:

TL, we talked about this. You're not allowed to personally attack your opponents in the upper fora. If you cannot argue your case respectfully, take it to Angry Ranting.

This is your second warning on this issue. As per the rules, short bans may follow from now on.
First, we are not talking.

B, which opponent did I attack?

III, learn to read for cryin' out loud!

Questioning peoples' behavior or ability to understand material is not a personal attach, yet I get warned for it...

Pete, you are behaving irrationally and urge you to get a grip.

Flat Earth Theory / The Death of Heliocentricity
« on: January 21, 2018, 12:59:46 AM »
I find the lack of a CGI rendering of the heliocentric model (depicting the complete revolutionary movement of the Sun as it travels throughout the Milky Way) to be absolute certain evidence of:

1) The model being a lie; or,

2) Newton is wrong; or,

3) The Laws of Thermodynamics are wrong.

If humans can manufacture trash like this:
 


Then why can we not post the real deal, based on "real science?"

Newton's Laws of Motion/The Laws of Thermodynamics/etc.

Given that science claims the Sun is speeding along at roughly 483,000 MPH, with planets, their moons, asteroids, comets, etc., dutifully in tow, and given that science claims that Kepler and Newton have all the math figured out and that is what allowed for the discoveries of planets and their orbits to begin with:

Please present a correct CGI rendering of the Solar System in its travels throughout the galaxy.

The coding for the CGI must be demonstrated to have references to Newton and make account for the Laws of Thermodynamics.

The model should have the ability to render the visual movement of the Solar System at a speed similar to this (already demonstrated to be inaccurate)one:



Please note the topic of this thread is not up for debate.

I will open up a debate thread for that purpose.

Suggestions & Concerns / Suggested changes to the wiki
« on: January 15, 2018, 10:12:00 PM »
Forgive me if this is posted to the wrong forum.

1) Remove or modify the GIF depicting the amount of sunlight over the AEP. If opting to modify, it should reflect the sunlight as does timeanddate.com over the Mercator Projection. In other words, keep the AEP and simply change the areas being lit at various times throughout the journey of the Sun.
2) The wiki states the following:
"As a passenger on an aircraft, how is it I can see the curvature of the earth?
Quite simply you cannot. It is widely stated you would need to be at a height of at least 40,000 ft to get even a hint of curvature if earth were round. Commercial aircraft are not allowed to fly this high. "
The sentence, "Commercial aircraft are not allowed to fly this high." is in error and needs to be removed.
"Most commercial jetliners have a service (or certificated) ceiling of about 42,000 ft (13,000 m)[citation needed] and some business jets about 51,000 ft (16,000 m).[3] "- Wikipedia

Flat Earth Community / Damning evidence against the heliocentric model...
« on: January 14, 2018, 10:40:58 PM »
would be the lack of a CGI rendering of the complete model, along with a detailed release of all inputs used for creating the model.

Those inputs used for creating the model would need to minimally include Kepler's Laws of planetary motion and Newton's Laws of motion and universal gravitation and account for the Laws of Thermodynamics.

Does anyone have such a model, open for inspection?

Flat Earth Theory / Letter from NYC Port Authority
« on: April 11, 2017, 12:01:36 PM »
I recall reading a letter (here I believe) written about the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge, debunking the issue of its towers having a greater distance at the top than at the bottom.

Does anyone else remember that letter?

Flat Earth Theory / Salt flats
« on: March 31, 2016, 11:02:43 PM »
Hi,

New post from a new forum member. I did a search and did not find this suggestion anywhere here.

Seems to me a person could go to Bonneville or Salar de Uyuni with 100 one meter long poles, 11Km of construction twine,and ten line levels. Pick a point and drive a stake one-half meter in depth. Tie off the line at half the remaining stake. Walk 10Km out, driving a stake every 10 meters to the same depth and repeat the tie off. Place a line level at every half a kilometer.

Would the result prove or disprove a flat earth?
