It would be pretty weird if we were looking at that scene and the Sun was behind us.

It would be impossible to have the sun behind the camera in that photo. Renders your following paragraph moot.

And if we were looking at that scene with the Sun behind us, you guys would then say that should just take a string and align it horizontally to the Sun behind us to prove that the illuminated portions of the Moon and Earth are pointed at the Sun.

It was reported days ago that the gold statue of Trump that was paraded at CPAC was made in Mexico. Today, it is reported that it was made in China.

Build a wall to keep Trump statues from coming North.
Levy tariffs on Trump statues from the Far East.

JSS: "I drove all across the US multiple times, so I can verify the distances in miles for all surveying projects are correct"

No wonder people question your integrity.

You seem to have completely misunderstood what I said, you should read it again more carefully until you understand my point. You sound very confused.

If you would like to provide a counterexample of where you drove a route that should be 1,000 miles and it was off by hundreds of miles, please do so.  I'm sure we would all be very curious to hear where your direct, personal experience of how map distances are wrong from your travels, and we could then verify your claim.

Either way, nobody has gone yet.
Seven very rich people have visited the ISS as "Space Tourists".
It's not accessible to "the common man" right now. I'm not sure it ever will be, the business of going into space is complicated and expensive.
But to say that nobody has gone is simply not true.
Yeah, it is.

The OP is about the moon.

A lot of people have gone very high up above the earth..

But none of them have been taken on these Virgin Galactic or SpaceX billionaire projects.

We do not even have those marvelous flying car fantasy projects.

Flat Earth Investigations / Re: Tidal Bores
« Last post by Tumeni on March 04, 2021, 10:26:56 AM »
Hello in my area when the tide comes into the bay it creates a tidal bore which travels up a river that emptys into the bay.  It travels over 17 km in less than 45 minutes.  Going by earths curvature it has a massive amount of ground to climb as well as the brooks natural decline.  So how if tides come in so slowly takes over 8 hours here how does this tidal bore gain like 9m of height or more to travel that far up river,  when the whole time the wave stays almost exactly 2 feet tall for the entire 45 minutes

Would an external wiki be of any help? It seems quite detailed on what causes the effect

Having considered the matter further, I have decided not to go to the moon

It's why they test them ... similar things happened to Falcon test flights, and they're at the stage now where they think nothing of re-using the first stage assemblies for a number of launches.

I think you would welcome death if one of the other passengers was Thork. 8 days of listening to him rant about his Jack Russell challenge, you'd be reaching for the hatch lever.
If you can find me a Jack Russel that will outrun a whippet, we'll let the matter rest.  >:(

No wonder people question your integrity.
Tom: “I have no expertise in surveying, cartography, shipping or aviation but I will claim without basis that any distances which don’t match FE are wrong or unknown”

And that isn’t a straw man, you literally claimed on here that the distance between Paris and New York is “unknown” which must come as a surprise to the pilots who travel the route daily and always find the cities exactly where they expect them to be.

No wonder people question yours...

Just the earth. The earth is special. Everyone would agree ... it is the only place in the universe that we have found that supports complex life. Maybe being flat is a prerequisite for life?

The other planets are actually planets. The earth is not. Planet comes from the Greek meaning 'wandering star'. The earth is just the earth. Flat and unique.


So then what do you say to the photos of earth we have from space? They show it’s a ball just like the photos of the moon and Mars show that they are balls.

You should at least familiarize yourself with the basics before you dive in. This is FET's most well-known concept, the World Famous ConspiracyTM, so there's really no excuse for such breathtaking ignorance.
