Ive had students, 7th graders, who sincerely believed that the earth was flat. The level of scientific ignorance out there is astounding.

Don't get me started on those fook sticks.. If you don't believe science then you don't get to benefit from it.

No car for you,no internet for you, no phone for you, no advanced medical care for you.

Regarding claiming FE ers should have rights taken away...
That's some ignorant thinking right there.

I don't think you understand how science is supposed to work.
If your theory is not demonstrable, measurable or repeatable by experiment....
It is wrong....
Has nothing to do with belief....
If science is belief based its not unlike religion.

12% FE with over 30 replays.
....and I thought I was all alone here.

If it's not supported by facts/evidence, it was/will never be a theory; it's a hypothesis (which could be rejected).

I'm good with hypothesis.....but also believe your definition of theory is wrong....here's what I googled.....don't see facts or evidence mentioned...

theory
noun
a supposition or a system of ideas intended to explain something, especially one based on general principles independent of the thing to be explained.
"Darwin's theory of evolution"
synonyms: hypothesis, thesis, conjecture, supposition, speculation, postulation, postulate, proposition, premise, surmise, assumption, presupposition; More
a set of principles on which the practice of an activity is based.
"a theory of education"
an idea used to account for a situation or justify a course of action.
"my theory would be that the place has been seriously mismanaged"

....just sayin....

Scientific theory =/= everyday theory.

First Google definition of scientific theory:
A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of facts that have been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experiment. Such fact-supported theories are not "guesses" but reliable accounts of the real world.

E.g. theory of gravity

Your responses are making clear your deficiency in understanding simple science and explaining why you could think the Earth is flat.

Big Blur.

On Monday I watched a local guy down at Willow. "Jason" a self proclaimed hermit. Big beard, full rasta hairbag.

He builds rock sculptures. The best. I've talked to him. He searches out the perfect spot. Like a well douser, then he builds.

He looks around for the center. Everything is easy after that.

The horizon never changes. It's always out there, just on the edge of sight.

What happens past that point takes place on another plane of reality. We are not a part of it.

I'm good with hypothesis.....but also believe your definition of theory is wrong....here's what I googled.....don't see facts or evidence mentioned...

theory
noun
a supposition or a system of ideas intended to explain something, especially one based on general principles independent of the thing to be explained.
"Darwin's theory of evolution"
synonyms: hypothesis, thesis, conjecture, supposition, speculation, postulation, postulate, proposition, premise, surmise, assumption, presupposition; More
a set of principles on which the practice of an activity is based.
"a theory of education"
an idea used to account for a situation or justify a course of action.
"my theory would be that the place has been seriously mismanaged"

....just sayin....


Scientific theory =/= everyday theory.

First Google definition of scientific theory:
A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of facts that have been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experiment. Such fact-supported theories are not "guesses" but reliable accounts of the real world.

E.g. theory of gravity

Your responses are making clear your deficiency in understanding simple science and explaining why you could think the Earth is flat.




Hey...you're right....that's that same definition I got when I added "science" before "theory" in my search. Kinda goofy use of the term theory...why not just say scientific fact?
...but I'll maintain we're saying the same thing wrt demonstrable, measurable & repeatable.

This is good stuff...
"A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of facts that have been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experiment. Such fact-supported theories are not "guesses" but reliable accounts of the real world."
FE is all about this....observations of and experiments on the natural world prove a flat surface every time anyone cares to look....so the scientific theory of earth being a sphere is wrong.

BTW....care to point me to any recent experiment that proves a large mass exerts an attractive force on a smaller mass? Think Cavendish experiment but more recent. And is there only one possible explanation for the direction of down (ie, attractive force of gravity due to mass) or could there be others?

How about demonstrating a curved water surface on a large body of static water?

...or a pressure system next to a vacuum w/o a barrier....

....or a liquid following lock step with a moving solid....like the air does above the earth.

So are you questioning the theory of gravity? Or the law: Fg = Gm1m2/d^2?

The sliver of the crescent moon has been really evident the last couple nights. What could be making the round shadow? And is the moon flat too? The sun?

That isn't the earth's shadow doing that, it is all about the moon being a sphere and its position in relation to the earth and sun.

Questioning that there's an attractive force due to masses of two objects....and not something else. Check out this vid....guys walks thru how big G was derived. Care to repeat the Cavendish experiment?


The crescent moon is caused by the sun reflecting on the side of the moon that faces the sun....the shadow is the unlit side and round because the moon appears to be spherical. What does this have to do with the shape of earth? Just sayin....

then to prove to yourself that there aren't any devils in the binoculars because you're apparently a fooking time traveller from b.c.e.~500 just google how to make glass, go get a bunch of sand and i think soda water and lime or something like that, make a rudimentary blast furnace and get to polishing

Bohter sees a spherical moon, but not a spherical earth. Cognitive dissonance much?

Phases of the moon better described with visuals.

There's an activity for 5th graders using a flashlight as the sun, a tennis ball as the Earth, and a small styrofoam ball on a stick as the moon. Students can recreate the phases of the moon exactly w Earth casting a shadow on it, using this simple model.

The truth doesn't really matter does it?

I mean, If someone wants to believe the Earth is flat, there are outlets that will support that worldview for them.

They don't care if it's right or wrong as long as their information supports what they think should be.

What happens if your kid starts hanging out with bohters kid and next thing you know they're coming home talking about the earth being flat.

It's just like this alex jones kook oh no big deal he's just peddling conspiracy theories to uneducated rubes, next thing you know he's got the fooking sandy hook parents getting death threats and obviously the dumbass president we have is amplifying his voice. You've got people going into pizza parlors and shooting them up because they believe in nonsense.

It's super fooking easy to radicalize someone if their belief in the natural world shuts down at living on a ball. People like bohter used to burn astronomers at the stake.

the world isn't flat and it's a poor reflection on our society that we allow people to profit off keeping people believing that. it's fucken evil

Are you 100% sure you're not confusing the phases of the moon with a lunar eclipse?

To be clear...I'm not claiming the earth causes the shadow on the moon during an eclipse either.

Yes it matters.....but you got it backwards. The globe lie is what's fooking evil.....and you've fallen into a pattern of not thinking for yourself....indoctrinated & brainwashed.

BTW....the kids are already talking about it.....because the preponderance of primary objective evidence stacks heavily in favor of it being flat.....and not a globe.

if you're on the west coast

lay down and watch the sun set and when you cant see it anymore quick stand on top of something oh my god there it is

if you're on the east coast stand on top of something and watch the sun rise then get off whatever you're standing on and oh my god it's disappeared again!

go buy a gun and shoot at a target from an elevated position...you'll miss if you use your measured distance to the target. you have to use pythagoreans theorem to determine the distance from the ground level of your location in order to hit it.

or you can know the angle at which you're firing and your elevation is the easiest way to do it.

same way I can tell you the height of a tree by knowing the length of its shadow and the angle at which the sun is above the horizon

everybody with a compass is in on it against you bother or you're wrong.

imagine getting into an altercation with a group of people who think the world is flat.

can you not count past 12? just make a clock in your brain with the sun as the end of the hour hand

alternatively take a trigonometry class

Flat earthers are so stupid, you could fly dem to far away space, far enough away to see the earth is truly spherical, leave them out there long enough so they could see it make a full rotation, fly them back to earth, and they still think it is flat. can't argue with dumb.

Pretty sure some flat earthers here just trollign the shit out of you fools.

This is why I pretty much stopped trying to be informative.

Still, this time of year, it is super easy to see a round earth at sunrise on the West Coast of the USA during clear skies. (easy at dusk as well)

At dawn, with the sun below the horizon in the east, look west. (Don't even need to be high up, but if you are, it makes things easier to see.)

You should be able to see the Belt of Venus....it is that pink delineation between light and dark. Here, a photo (at dusk) is worth another paragraph:



So anyway, you are up for a dawn patrol, Belt of Venus is there, and as you pan you vision from north to south, you can clearly see that the shadow is curved. That curve is caused by the spherical earth.

.

This curve shows up whether you have a fish-eye lens (notice how the shadow curves more than the horizon of the earth):


Or not:



Belt of Venus or not, I really like a simple bit of trigonometry proof that the sun goes below the horizon as so beautifully illustrated by Mt Ranier...the shadow of the mountain going up into the sky as cast by a sun that is not seen because it is hidden by the horizon:



However, I doubt the photographic proof will convince anyone who disbelieves this photo:

Mr Doof back in the house! Hey!
So what did you think of the Jeff Chavolla video of Ocean Beach (Damn good looking waves BTW) where you could see most all of the Farallons from the parking lot? Would like to hear your technical analysis that explains that....'cause we're seeing way too much of 'em...eh? Also....your "earth shadow" pics are interesting but the third one with the lighthouse puzzles me....sun is just to the right....so why does the shadow appear to curve back downwards to the left....shouldn't it continue upward from that angle?
Oh....and just now I checked the Ventura County Fire Cams.....the one on Anacapa is likely 120 ' up (Lighthouse is 150) and it was just pointing at Santa Barbara Island 42 miles away to the SSE and you could see most all of it....but the top should be 100' below the physical ball horizon. Hmmmm....

Going Out....suggest checking more than one reference. And note that there's about 20 similar ancient cosmologies from all over that depict a flat earth....only one ball earth....so which one is most likely the Psy-op?

Globe is illusion....

1 I don't know what video you are talking about.

2 Some days of the year it is easy to see Pt Reyes from the bluff/seawall overlooking the beach. Harder to see the Farallons, but doable. Much easier to see from Twin Peaks, or even from the East Bay Hills (higher still) through the Golden Gate. If you are seeing a lot of the Farallons from the Beach, i suppose one could be mistaking it for Pt Reyes or have great refractive atmospherics.

3 The photo with the light house is an ultra wide panorama that probably amounts to a 270 degree field of view. They may have stitched together a few photos as the camera was swiveled.

But all of the above is meaningless, yes Bohter? It is correct to say that you don't think the following image shows earth from a lunar orbit, yes?



If you think this image is a non-illustrative of our shared reality, then nothing I can show you will change a thing. Everyone has to pass through the chapel perilous of their own accord.

Mr Doof....here's the OB vid with a clear un-refracted view of the Farallons...


And a similar one with an inferior mirage along the horizon hiding the bases...

If you want to claim refraction is the reason we see so much of the islands in the first vid go for it.....delusional indoctrinated thinking at it's best. I think most everyone would agree this is a regular view on a clear day....and they're seeing what they're seeing and not some magic lifting of something below the physical horizon. If this was the case (lifting).....we'd be able to see what's over that ridge over there or what's coming over the hump in the road ahead of us....to some degree....but that never happens...

You can fool some of the peeps some of the time....but not all the peeps all of the time....

How may of you saw this and thought it was an objective piece that presented both sides of the argument fairly? I call it a hit piece because they omitted the best evidence and focused on rocket man distractions....painted most everything as goofy sheet....check it....Jane Pauley....

That still image in the video above isn't the Farallon Islands. Pt Reyes. Telling is the sharp jagged edges missing from the Devil's Teeth. Also interesting to note is that Pt Reyes appears to be an island...the curve of the earth is hiding the low lying part, so thanks for helping prove my contention the earth is spherical.

For comparison:








GoogleEarth Streetview provides this image showing Marin County Headlands and Pt Reyes (Pt Reyes is the the right of the sailboat):


Wait a sec....let me zoom in and add in a spotting aid...:


But all this aside, we are just rehashing what has been stated before in the other thread, right? No one is changing anyone's mind, right? No new paradigm shattering proof of either position is being displayed, right?

I mean, I know that if I haven't convinced anyone by now, what is the point of continuing this discussion?

MrDoof -- I know you're frustrated with the dialogue between you and bohter; but I really do enjoy watching bohter jump through mental hoops in order to ignore the evidence. It's quite entertaining! Thank you!

Part of the problem is that there is no point in this universe that has been conclusively identified as stationary. Any motion is relative to the motion of something else, even though I'm sitting motionless as I type this...relatively.

Yet, we have no reason to doubt Einstein when he stated that any object approaching the speed of light is also approaching infinite length. An object of infinite length would be motionless, wouldn't it?

Oh bother, so many opposing truths!

Yes, I was wrong....it is Point Reyes.
I am human exactly like all you other fooks out there....we make mistakes.

But Mr. Doof (Thanks BTW) was right and wrong at the same time.
We can apply the same thought process to what we're seeing at Point Reyes from SFOB...yes?

Hidden height at 31 miles from 25 ft camera height is just over 400' and I contend we're seeing much more than that and the part missing due to the earth's curvature...per Mr. Doof...is really hidden by inferior mirage or other atmospheric conditions over aqua. Maybe 250' worth. Check how much more is hidden in the other OB surf video (kudos to Jeff Chavolla!). It's variable....really! Prove me wrong. Do you own observations....you'll figure it out.

Case in point...here's a photo from like 15' elevation at OB...to Pt Reyes. Surfers doing what they do most...wait. We can see the western most portion of Pt Reyes where the lighthouse is. The lighthouse light is 265' elevation on the lower part to the left...zoom it to see it better....and you can see the part where the LH is clearly...but should not see any of it as it should be 200' below the physical horizon. Oh Snap!

Also...you're seeing a Superior mirage above the point....I've never seen similar without seeing the object being miraged.

If you think you can see over the curve...you're delusional.

Globe is illusion...

Just out of curiosity Bohter...

Is the moon real?

If so.. does it orbit our flat planet?

And if it does is it flat also?

I'm just trying to understand this.

Funny that you mention, Keeny...
Just last night I thought the path of the moon not to mention the size...mimics the path and size of the sun...
Might they both be orbiting above us?
You look and let us know...

And there is no proof that the spherical shaped earth is rotating at approx. 1000 mph at the equator.

There is no proof that this is happening.

And there are many reasons to doubt Einstein, his theories are flawed.

bohter the answer to your question is your math is wrong.

why can't you guys prove anything. just bring a camera to the edge of the world and take a fooking picture already, until you do that shut the fook up and don't procreate.

don't point me to flat earther bullshit science when all you need to do is take a picture of the edge.

when a flat earther uses flat earth science to contribute anything in any way then maybe you'll convince someone.

explain why the color red disappears at depth in the ocean. Do you think the electromagnetic spectrum is real?

explain why i can measure the distance to an object using a mil-dot reticle provided I know the obects length. Is it magic?

Do you not believe that people are sailing...around the world. You think this is a conspiracy??

Is trigonometry magic? What level of school did you guys complete?

TButt....why do you assume there has to be an edge? Do you think flat earthers believe there's a disc floating thru space? Only The Flat Earth Society pushes this....and no FE'er believes this is a legit group. When it comes down to it....all we really know is it's not a spinning ball covered with water flying thru infinite space.

Also, please demonstrate why the math is wrong....I took advanced math in HS....got a BSME and was not stumped by any of the math involved....and this was before computers....only hand calculators were used unless you count those damn punch card stack batch runs we used to do.

The Michelson-Morley Experiment
The Michelson-Gale Experiment
"Aireys failure"
The Sagnac Experiment

....I am goingoutside now.....the sun has gone down...and it's gonna rise in the morning.....


This is this kind of stuff you all need to look into....thanks for posting that GO.

Can someone formulate a more specific question regarding the great circle navigation issue....I'm not fully up on why it proves a globe. I do know this though....every time I've flown to Asia....and it's a good number....we always flew over the Aleutians....which is an odd way to go because it's a longer route than point to point and more into the northern jet stream. Looking at a FE map....it makes perfect sense...straight line.

And if you're interested in the Moon Landing....go watch the YT movie called "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon". There's some NASA footage of how they faked the view of earth with a dark cabin and the window. It's just one bit in a huge stack of evidence exposing the hoax.

How do you respond to this tho... watch a boat disappear on the horizon then grab a zoom lens and bring the boat back into the frame... it never really goes over the curve.. it just gets so small due to perspective that you can't see it

Umm, no, it's not longer. Take a round earth globe (you know, that propaganda piece from the round earth globe industry cabal that has made trillions$$$$ perpetuating the round earth theory) and a string. You will see that the closest route goes over the Aleutians.

Even without doing that, if airplanes were to go lengthwise around the globe, then the flight times between Asia and different US coasts would reflect that.

NYC to Tokyo: 14 hours https://www.google.com/flights#flt=/m/02_286./m/07dfk.2018-11-02;c:USD;e:1;s:0;sd:1;t:f;tt:o

NYC to Portland: 6.5 hours https://www.google.com/flights#flt=/m/02_286.PDX.2018-11-02;c:USD;e:1;sd:1;t:f;tt:o

If it takes 6+ hours to get from NYC to Portland, and planes are flying longitudinally around the globe, where did those 3+ hours go confused2 Or are the airlines in it too confused2

This is true in many cases....things get so small you can't see em anymore.....then add some magnification and viola...there it is. But...then there's experiments where you can't bring the entire object back into view....the lower parts are cut off....mostly due to inferior mirage. Most easily seen over water or a dry lake bed. At some distances the amount cut off matches the expected globe curve....but at longer distance it does not. This is a problem for the globe.

Don't get me wrong....understanding perspective is key to understanding what you see.

I flew LAX to Tokyo & Seoul a bunch.....a tight string is well below the Aleutians.

I'll look into your other point later.

...and to all with the "stupid" comments. We ALL learned how stupid flat earth was in the 2nd or 3rd grade....it was drilled into our head w/o any real discussion about why folks knew it was flat. Based on some of the comments here...it appears some of your have not matured much since then. We all know this seems like goofy sheet....it's an learned / indoctrinated response.

Also....imagine if we had been taught the earth was flat as the accepted scientific cosmology...and now there's a group of folks claiming it's a globe. shrug

Don't get me wrong....understanding perspective is key to understanding what you see.


So your telling me that I can see Hawaii from SF if I point a telescope in the correct direction..?


no atmospheric conditions and perspective make it impossible...



Hahahahahahabaha. No use debating a genius. Lets just enjoy some more music.

not sure whereabouts you live, but here in southern california, you can see Catalina Island on a clear day. That's 22 miles off the coast.. That said there's many days where you can look out and not see it at all. That's atmospheric conditions blocking your view.

Im just curious. Because Im too lazy to look it up. And I think anyone who seriously thinks the earth is flat is worthy of my bemusement.

I have a couple of buddies who restored an old drug running plane back (1957 Aero Commander) in the late 90s and became the youngest pilots to circumnavigate the globe with it. I flew with them on a few legs and wrote about em for the NYTimes.

http://mobile.nytimes.com/2000/12/17/nyr...-duct-tape.html

So I very distinctly recall watching em fly out of Newfoundland and return to N America via Half Moon Bay airport a few weeks later with my own two eyes and ears. I dont recall either of them telling me that they navigated a wormhole or flew across a flat, spinning disk to get home. Again, Im too lazy to bother with my own research, but whats sort of the boilerplate flat earther explanation for what they surely believe to have been the circulement of large globular object resembling a planet?

Oh bother, so many opposing truths!



And there is no proof that the spherical shaped earth is rotating at approx. 1000 mph at the equator.

There is no proof that this is happening.

Try look up stuff they don't teach you about.

The Michelson-Morley Experiment
The Michelson-Gale Experiment
"Aireys failure"
The Sagnac Experiment

....I am goingoutside now.....the sun has gone down...and it's gonna rise in the morning.....


This is this kind of stuff you all need to look into....thanks for posting that GO.

Can someone formulate a more specific question regarding the great circle navigation issue....I'm not fully up on why it proves a globe. I do know this though....every time I've flown to Asia....and it's a good number....we always flew over the Aleutians....which is an odd way to go because it's a longer route than point to point and more into the northern jet stream. Looking at a FE map....it makes perfect sense...straight line.

And if you're interested in the Moon Landing....go watch the YT movie called "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon". There's some NASA footage of how they faked the view of earth with a dark cabin and the window. It's just one bit in a huge stack of evidence exposing the hoax.


Just for clarification I did state "....the spherical shaped earth..."

And I will repeat, the sun, literally rises and sets, as does the moon.


....I am goingoutside now....

The funny thing about flat Earth is how incredibly vast the conspiracy would have to be and the amount of unity it would require, for instance, among nations that are enemies.... for instance the United States and Russia during the space race...



Not to mention mass unified conspiracy to generate images of a round Earth

Mass conspiracy among employees at NASA and similar agencies...

Mass conspiracy in aeronautics programs and among pilots...

Mass conspiracy of pilots who fly commercial airliners...

Mass conspiracy of those involved with navigation at sea...

etc.

A friend said it best the other day:

"It is far more likely the moon landing was faked than that the earth is flat. And that's not saying it's likely the moon landing was faked."

I'll look into your other point later.


Globes may or may not be to perfect scale, or at least close enough for practical purposes. Same goes for the Nintendo Era interfaces on the back of an airplane seat that tell you roughly where you are on the globe (or disc roflmao). All of them are a representation.

As for the flight times I used, they don't support your claims. You can even change the West Coast city to San Francisco, which would make very close to a straight line between NYC and Tokyo in terms of there latitude, and get the same exact flight times as Portland.

If a straight line makes for the fastest flight time, and not going over the poles when appropriate, your assumption leaves at least 3 hours unaccounted for.

I'm flying to Cincinnati Ohio tomorrow morning via St. Paul Minnesota and returning via Atlanta.

Not happy. Wish we could have set this up in a straight line to and from with no other stops.

something breaks inside of you
with the spectacle of the round hoax
with sixteenth century fights and your six bucks
has gone up some globe toter's nose
oblated eyes see spherely, but only flat is what's there
good old days are left behind whats left is boredom and atmosphere
but sometimes every once in a while
sometimes every once in a while
its spherical I would say, I wouldn't have it any other way
if I said different it would be a lie
if I said different it would be a lie

Oh bother, so many opposing truths!



And there is no proof that the spherical shaped earth is rotating at approx. 1000 mph at the equator.

There is no proof that this is happening.

And there are many reasons to doubt Einstein, his theories are flawed.

Try look up stuff they don't teach you about.

The Michelson-Morley Experiment
The Michelson-Gale Experiment
"Aireys failure"
The Sagnac Experiment

Foucault's pendulum? Probably just invisible gnomes pushing the pendulum bit by bit.

What, exactly, do you think Sagnac proves (or disproves)?

I no can put stuff up too good, to to find this information, just internet search :

" Geocentricity and Foucault's Pendulum " and " Geocentricity - Sagnac Effect "

I don't know why I even engaged. Thanks for not answering my questions!



Your questions : #1 " Foucault's pendulum? "

#2 " ...Sagnac proves (or disproves)?

I supplied 3 sources of information that generally answers these 2 questions from a Geocentric
viewpoint. I was answering your questions with this supplied information. Hope you like reading!
By the way, you never said "how" you wanted me to answer your questions...

What, you don't like the idea of a static earth?

Do you want to be famous? You can be famous you know?

All you have to do is SHOW proof the earth is moving.


You like try? Go for it bro! If you pull it off you will be....famous!

You sure you like try? You sure, you sure?



....I am goingoutside now.... gonna take a look up into the night sky...and watch the stars move....

Bohter, assuming claims regarding the size and spherical shape of the Earth are true, how much do think the Earth curves per mile? Based on some of your earlier observations regarding what you are/are not able to see at a distance, I'm thinking your numbers may be a bit (read: wildly) off. shrug

Your Point Reyes from OB claims are a good example. Point Reyes is about 20 miles from OB as a crow flies. The lighthouse there is about 35 feet tall and sits on a headland about 300 feet above the Pacific (according to a quick google search). From another quick google search, it seems Globers believe that the earth curves approximately 8-inches per mile. In other words, about 15 feet over a span of twenty miles. So yes, the lighthouse can be seen from OB absent fog or other atmospheric conditions obscuring it. Where are you getting your numbers when claiming there should be more than 400 feet of curve in a twenty-mile span? Better yet, where does this claim come from: "Hidden height at 31 miles from 25 ft camera height is just over 400'." shrug

Orange photo....the one with the Superior Mirage above Pt. Reyes...
The lighthouse light's elevation is 265'.....Google it.
The peaks to the right 612' and 552'.....Topozone...
Camera height is like 15'....educated guess....
Distance to lighthouse ~31 miles....from OB parking lot...Google maps...
Hidden height or drop at that distance and camera height is right at 460 ft....Maths....
Horizon at 4.7 miles.....Maths...

There are many on-line calculators for this that are accurate for a sphere of 3959 mile r.
Here's one...
https://dizzib.github.io/earth/curve-calc/?d0=31&h0=15&unit=imperial

7.98 inches per mile ^2 is an approximate hidden height equation but does not take into account camera height. If it was 8 inches per mile we'd be describing a slope....not a curve.

Why think when you can know?

The last one is photoshop. So we can disregard that one immediately...

And yes, those are very nice photos of water "bending" you got me there. But how does that prove a water bending around a ball? When I said "bending" I meant around a sphere or ball... It runs off of it. Now try throwing the ball 67,000 mph with 1000mph of spin on it (to mimic the earths supposed rotation and orbit). You think that water is going to stick to it? not for a second.

The formula for curvature on earth is 8" per mile SQUARED. This is given to us from science. Just try to measure it. So that's only 8" at the first mile, but it adds up quick because its a curve... So that 2.6 feet at 2 miles, and 6 feet at 3 miles, 10.6 feet at 4 miles, 16.6 feet at 5 miles!

Look out at Catalina on a clear day, that's 22 miles from North OC. That should be 322 feet of curvature according to the formula that science has provided. But you can clearly see the isthmus gradually come down to sea level and rise back up.. It should look like 2 separate peaks if there were 322 feet of curvature between us and catalina.

Look i'm not quite a full believer in all things "flat-earth" BUT I am saying this 'globe' model we've been taught since we were kids isn't fully adding up. I was just like you and everyone else, I fully bought into the globe model my whole life. It wasn't till recently that I started questioning things. Look into it man, do some research, try some experiments and measurements. Lot of things we've been told aren't adding up.

Your formula is off... It's 8" per mile Squared. 8" x 20 miles (squared) is 8 x 20 x 20.. That's 3200 inches... divided by 12 = 266.6 feet

So Casa.....care to tell us how this proves we live on a spinning ball covered with 70%+ water? If we plot swell angles on a AE map projection....which is what most FEers believe is the most representative.....does it still work? Try it and get back to us.

The azimuthal equidistant projection is an azimuthal map projection. It has the useful properties that all points on the map are at proportionately correct distances from the center point, and that all points on the map are at the correct azimuth (direction) from the center point.

I've been looking into it for about 3 years... the first year started when one of my good buddies came to me and told me he believed it. I was in complete denial, thought there was no way it could possibly be flat. I thought he'd lost his marbles... So I started looking into it, merely just to prove him wrong. The more I look into it, the more I'm starting to find things are not what we've been taught.

Mass conspiracy among employees at NASA and similar agencies...

Mass conspiracy in aeronautics programs and among pilots...

Mass conspiracy of pilots who fly commercial airliners...

Mass conspiracy of those involved with navigation at sea...

etc.

A friend said it best the other day:

"It is far more likely the moon landing was faked than that the earth is flat. And that's not saying it's likely the moon landing was faked."


Exactly what I was thinking.

Also, what is to be gained by maintaining this vast hoax? If the world were somehow not spherical, what could be gained by hiding that fact? At what point and level do the people studying the established shape and movement of planets in our solar system get "read in" on this new theory in order to launch satellites and shit?

I get that the spirit behind the flat earthers trying to question the status quo, but at some point you're gonna have to have faith in the thousands of people who are well versed in the subject. Not the YouTube "experts".

Put yourself in this guy's shoes...and listen to the conversation.
Many similarities wrt recent posts and questions.
Guy seems damn intelligent by the questions he asks...w/o attacking Harry....the guy with the camera.
Is thinking for himself....yet remains respectful...
And in the end agrees this is something that requires looking into.

cheers
