NAVY Missile Instructor Describes Flat Earth
« on: October 14, 2018, 07:46:06 PM »
A NAVY Missile Instructor describes that weapons systems observe bodies beyond the horizon. He describes that in such weapons systems no adjustments for curvature are taken into account, and that no adjustments for the Coriolis Effect is made. A planar model is assumed. Further, he describes that popular theory maps used on the open ocean are completely wrong.

Hmm, always a bit worried about people whose basis for believing a flat earth are "BUT MEH HOLY BOOK".
And literally the first thing on his website is some straw man thing about the horizon being at eye level:

Which even you have now conceded is not the case. Doesn't bode well for his scientific understanding.

Haven't watched the video, to be fair. This is one of his other videos though. He sounds mental.

"The host of this radio show sounds mental" is an argument that has nothing to do with his guest, nor does any book that the host has been involved with. Beyond being incredibly rude, the guest is obviously an entirely different person.

Nothing against the Missile Instructors belief system. In one of his 4 videos (this one here) he mentions his belief in Flat Earth right at the beginning. So I thought it was relevant.

Not any more, he was in from age 18 to 28 (2016) left Navy, today is 30 and has a different web site. He was on the USS Iwo Jima for 5 years.

What kind of person would devote endless hours posting scientific facts trying to correct the few retards who believe in the FE? I slay shitty little demons.
