Yes, I saw the same thing. No one gives a crap anymore, unfortunately. It is weird how things have changed dramatically in the past few years. Everyone here in the US (that was sensible) was up in arms against the Patriot Act and all the unwarranted tapping of cellphones, etc. Cheered when Edward Snowden broke the news on NSA spying. Cheered when we were able to stop the one internet act several years ago.

Now, its the complete opposite. What the fuck happened?

QED admits no where in any of the responses in this post that he took a cursory glance at the articles.  That is an outright blatant lie, Tom. The only thing he states is that it took him 15 minutes to find the documents.  He did not state that he took 15 minutes to read all of them. WOW.

Interesting, I have never heard of the Piri Reis map. I will have to do some more research. Thanks.

Just because there is regulations does not mean that there were not people calling themselves Doctors and selling snake oil. Ridiculous. Read this entry:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quackery#History_in_Europe_and_the_United_States

Particularly this:

"The number of internationally marketed quack medicines increased in the later 18th century; the majority of them originated in Britain[14] and were exported throughout the British Empire. By 1830, British parliamentary records list over 1,300 different "proprietary medicines,"[15] the majority of which were "quack" cures by modern standards."

And this:

"Similar advertising claims[25] to those of Radam can be found throughout the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. "Dr." Sibley, an English patent medicine seller of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, even went so far as to claim that his Reanimating Solar Tincture would, as the name implies, "restore life in the event of sudden death". Another English quack, "Dr. Solomon" claimed that his Cordial Balm of Gilead cured almost anything, but was particularly effective against all venereal complaints, from gonorrhoea to onanism."



So....yeah...there were people who claimed to be doctors - even after regulations were introduced. Don't be obtuse.

Its funny that literally no one discusses the fact that we have, at the least, aerial studies of the lake formations under the glaciers all over the entire continent of Antarctica. So you can either address how that is possible if Antarctica is just an ice wall, or you can just say its fake.

What about this? 

http://www.antarcticglaciers.org/glacier-processes/glacial-lakes/subglacial-lakes/

There are over 280 mapped subglacial lakes. An abundant number of them occur within the middle of the Antarctic continent. This to me would prove that Antarctica has been explored well enough to determine that it is not an ice wall.

Here are expected FE rebuttals:

1) Mapping of the locations has been changed to fit a globe GPS location.
2) This is fake - or data does not actually exist, or their equipment was measuring something else - along with the location data being wrong or faked.
3) Satellites don't exist (which is commonly turned into - "its all high altitude aerial photography")
4) NASA was mentioned in the article - therefore it is fake, fudged, or intentionally misleading.

Oh, I opened it to dispute a couple of times. Find my posts on Eratosthenes, and the numerous measurements done by schools all over the Earth that verify this.  There has been absolutely no direct response to this. Only off topic posting.

Everyone is partially correct. A slight misunderstanding of aerodynamics and how lift is actually created. For lift to be created there must be a) motion - either a solid object moving through a gas, or gas flowing over a solid object (in most cases, we would think of a wing being the solid object here), b) there must be a medium (a fluid or a gas) in which the solid object is moving through or being passed.  It does not require a pressure gradient to exist already. Lift creates a pressure gradient.  Atmospheric pressure gradients do not create lift. Does this clear up any confusion?

Here is a truth. Someone or something who has a username of iamcpc just made a post previous to mine. That is fact, evidence, and truth. Undeniable. 0% doubt.

I have nothing against releasing the video. I am just wondering why someone would actually want to watch it outside of a courtroom for evidentiary purposes.

I wonder if they are going to do a Force Vision with Palpatine or whatever like Luke had with Vader in the swamps of Dagoba.

Why would you want to see a saggy ball sack and a half limp dick being jerked off by some emaciated 50 year old asian that has leather for skin?

Horrible idea. Then we would get high school REers spamming the crap out of anything. Just...no.

Flat Earth Community / Re: Wiki: Occam's Razor and Burden of Proof
« on: April 17, 2019, 04:18:08 PM »
I would suggest building on Occam's original statement, which is "plurality should not be posited without necessity." In essence, it eventually comes to where we use it today in competing theories, but in reality it necessitates the evaluation of any extraneous explanations.

This site has a fairly good explanation of it.

That vice article also includes quotes from an official spokesperson. Hmm...

Hillary Clinton also has an official spokesperson. So, when she speaks on matters concerning herself, instead of her spokesperson, is she a spokesperson for herself?

A spokesperson speaks in response to something usually from the media. The AG in this case was not responding to a question or inquiry from the media. He was releasing an official statement, which is his jurisdiction and duty to do, concerning the fact that he is not going to open a case against the president. Therefore, he is speaking for himself. Therefore, he is not a spokesperson.  He is not speaking on anyone's behalf.

In the generic use of the word, yes. But in government terms of a job - no. There is an official position within each department of the government that is an actual spokesperson.

He also makes statements on behalf of the justice department.  It may not be his primary job but its in the jib description.

There are tons of people who make statements on behalf of other people or companies. It does not make them a spokesperson. It makes them a person who made a statement regarding something specific.
