It probably helped him get the nomination.  Because nothing helps a candidate win then making a bunch of people super angry then giving them a candidate who makes angry threats on their behalf.

Apparently the Internet Research Agency started posting pro-Rubio material during the primaries and then switch to Trump.

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Why do we see the same stars every night?
« Last post by Tumeni on Today at 08:47:27 AM »
It goes like this... 
If the Earth really works the way science tells us, then the night sky in the summer is pointing in the opposite direction from the night sky in the winter. If that were true, there would be no way to see the same stars in the winter and the summer.

I think those that propose this are only thinking in a limited fashion. They're looking at the cardinal direction of the planet, and impying that those on that side of the planet can only look one way. But someone at the mid-point of that cardinal direction can look directly up (in that cardinal direction), and also all around (360 degrees) down to their horizon (90 degrees or so from the cardinal direction)



Zoom in on the Earth, and

Flat Earth Theory / Why do we see the same stars every night?

This is a comment I see from time to time, and I wondered if anyone here holds this same idea... It goes like this...

Such was a comment on one of my videos, and I was thinking of addressing it, but I wasn't sure how common a belief it is.
Is that an idea that anyone here holds?

Short version, we don't see the same stars... but does everybody here already know that? Is that a mistake we only see out in YouTube land?

I have read all of these comments and I don’t feel any more enlightened as to how satellite or space station orbit occurs in the flat earth model. For the people here who are defending Flat Earth theory: I am sure you have to put up with so much crap. This debate really brings out the worst in people. But don’t forget there are people who are genuinely and honestly interested in your opinion, making sarcastic comments or insults, and saying ‘use the search function’ isn’t a very welcoming response for the people who are new and nervous about asking their own questions. (The Search function is not helpful by the way - have you tried using it to find a specific answer from someone?)

Flat Earth Theory / What inspired the 'official' story?
« Last post by Simone on Today at 03:59:57 AM »
Hi there, I’m new so I hope my question isn’t silly, and it's in the right section. Please inform me if I have got anything wrong.

I’m getting my head around this idea that the authorities (NASA, government, military and/or wheoever else) are facilitating this ‘lie’ / ‘illusion’ about the earth being a globe and corresponding science (Gravity, the big bang, and so on).

(I am aware that some Flat Earthers don’t believe in the conspiracy, I am inclined to that conclusion, but still interested in this side of the debate, whether or not you believe in the conspiracy I’d still love for you to weigh in on why you think the globe theory is so widely accepted)

If there’s no such thing as spherical planets and giant suns and gravity making things move towards them – then what a very fantastic story indeed. So I have 2 questions (Maybe there's not one simple answer but I'm hoping to see what peoples theories are and what convinced them)

1. What is the 'story' based on/inspired by? Was someone (human?) very creative and just made it up, or are there really spheres and gravity out there in another part of the universe (so this is a Truman-like attempt to mimick it)?

2. When did the lying start? With Aristotle? With Copernicus? With NASA?

He also tears a new hole in all the clowns here and this site.

It's a must watch for open minds.

The Media Won’t Say It, but Christians Are the No. 1 Persecuted Group Worldwide
Sri Lanka. April 21. Five hundred wounded, over 300 dead in terrorist attacks. According to mainstream media and many in the international community, these attacks were another senseless assault on “humanity.” But the destruction of Christian churches on Easter morning was not motivated by generic hatred. We know exactly why these men, women, and children died. They died for their Christian faith. On the holiest day in the Christian calendar, three bombs ripped through Christian churches, killing hundreds who had gathered peacefully to celebrate Christ’s resurrection from the dead.
But international leaders have studiously avoided calling this what it is: anti-Christian persecution.

This is for those who would like to know -- the grim reality of the last days .... VIDEO

1. CARM lists agnostics as Atheists.  Hard to take it seriously.
2. Atheism isn't a religion.  Buddhism is an atheist religion, but calling atheist a religion is like calling theist a religion.  Are you a Theist or a Christian?

Yeah.... 300 dead in a terrorist attack is bad but ethnic cleansing by a government is worse.

Fair enough, it would probably make more sense to just take out references to the nodes in the illustration until they can be better defined under a FE context.
