Flat Earth Debate / Distance debate based on poll results
« on: August 21, 2017, 02:28:11 PM »
Let's start this here.  I hope we get some reality in this one.   

What we know.

1. GPS is a proven technology that in some cases,  is accurate to centimeters and at worst 10 to 15 meters
2. Flight times between destinations are recorded daily
3. Aircraft cruise speeds are known and are filed with flight plans

Here is my first question.  Using the following airline data, how could a flat map possibly allow these numbers?

Origin         Dest                   Miles
Sydney         Santiago           7125
Santiago         Johannesburg   5724
Johannesburg  Sydney      6909

Flat Earth Q&A / In FE what are meteors
« on: August 12, 2017, 11:33:10 PM »
I am curious what the FE group says about meteors.  What are they, where do they come from.  Tonight is peak viewing BTW

The Flight track system is perfect for showing the holes in FE maps and theory.   Here is another.   You can see the great circle routes flights use in intercontinental travel in the southern hemisphere.   I am still waiting on a rough draft of an FE map that could explain this.

Flat Earth Debate / Deception to prove a point?

This video claims that the plane is flying at 70,000 ft and you can't see any curvature.  However at the 3:42 mark the altimeter clearly shows 40,400

There are now a few amateur videos out there of the ISS passing the moon.  The p900 has an awesome zoom that has to bee seen to believe it.  Optical 83x, 2000 mm equivalent.  Are these all fake?

There are many amateur photos and videos of ISS taken with telescopes.   Do these not prove it exists or are they all lying?

I have an app called Skywalk on my iPad that shows locations of celestial objects including man-made satellites.   As soon as a new commercial satellite is launched it gets added to the database and you can locate and track it with the naked eye.  Please tell me how this is possible and what are satellites if not orbital vehicles?

Note that many go north south as well as west to east.

I did a search, some FE people say there are satellites and some say there are not.   

Flat Earth Debate / Celestial Navigation questions
« on: May 22, 2017, 04:11:32 PM »
This is not in the Wiki or FAQ.  A forum search on "Celestial Navigation" yields no answers. 

Celestial Navigation has been used for centuries and it is possible to see the same stars from multiple points in the southern hemisphere at the same time.  People looking South in Australia can see some of the same stars that people looking South in South Africa can see.  The flat earth maps in the Wiki/FAQ all show that these same people would be looking in completely different directions,  in most cases greater than 90 degrees. 

This could easily be replicated with cameras mounted to a globe looking south on the 35 degrees south latitude line that passes the tip of Africa and part of the southern coast of Australia.  The do the same thing on a flat surface with any one of the FE maps and point the cameras due south.  It will be painfully obvious why FE maps don't work.

How is this possible? 
How does Celestial Navigation work in the southern hemisphere on a flat earth?

But somewhat insulting to the FE crowd.  Please watch it and let's discuss math.

Look for part two as well

Flat Earth Debate / Ironic
« on: May 18, 2017, 07:00:23 PM »

It's ironic to me that anyone would try to cover up a flat earth.   If the earth was flat, under a dome, with the sun, moon and all the stars under that as well, it would be infinitely more interesting than the accepted reality.  Scientists would be flocking to study the dome, find out what it's made of, find out what's beyond the ice wall, try to reach the moon etc.   Scientists have died in the cause of learning for centuries.  People were killed for cutting up bodies and IIRC also killed for suggesting the earth was round.  Madame Curie died from radiation.

Flat Earth Debate / New here
« on: May 17, 2017, 11:43:47 PM »
I have a few serious questions.

1.  I have read a quite a few threads and it seems no one will answer even the simplest of questions.  Why? 
2.  What is the reason for hiding the flat earth?  Who profits from hiding such a simple fact and to what end?
3. The Wiki says that NASA is not running a real space program... "The purpose of NASA is to fake the concept of space travel to further America's militaristic dominance of space. That was the purpose of NASA's creation from the very start: To put ICBMs and other weapons into space (or at least appear to)"  Since the Russians were first, they would have known before we did that space travel is not possible and they would have been the ones that we were trying to bluff.   Please explain this logic bust? 

Yes, I have searched and not found any answers.  All I saw were links to other threads that don't provide any answers.
