Flat Earth - No Boat Went Over The Horizon
« on: November 11, 2018, 08:22:43 PM »
Ranty Flat Earth gives us a step-by-step breakdown of the Sinking Ship Effect. Assessment of the alleged sinking ship videos shows that the effect being the result of the Inferior Mirage is the logical conclusion in many of these videos.

Runtime: 8 Minutes

Nice video, cheers Tom.
Anyone who would pay Richard Branson hundreds of thousands of dollars for the visual confirmation that we are all doomed to the unforgiving abyss of space, definitely deserves to know that.

This kind of absurd observation under no control whatsoever is the same as measuring a patient blood pressure and pulse rate during a sky diving, and assume the patient is ill due the rapid changes in the numbers.   I really don't know why people continues to assume observing a boat going down the horizon, under terrible observation will be the answer for all the questions.  On the video above there is no way to say the experience has any control, so it is totally invalid for any statements both from REs or FEs... it is ridiculous to pursue it otherwise.    One could say, it is the same as measuring the size and weight of the chicken while it runs like crazy all over the yard.  Situation like that is just to promove endless debating without any scientific repeatable results and answer, it seems it was chosen on purpose for that end.
