I find it's funny these idiots choose a "dome" over the earth.  A dome is the strongest structure under GRAVITY.  

Would it make more sense for an imaginary container of a flat earth go straight up then go straight down, to maximize the room inside?

The idiots who made up this lie sure were not very imaginative.  They include gravity in their lie while denying it exists.

If you take a really long stick like a 10 miles long and place it in space, and then push on one end, the other end doesn't move instantly, it takes time for the wave to reach the end.

No, a ten mile long stick would move instantly on both ends.   I'm glad you believe in space while it suits your purpose though.  

Now, a ten million mile long stick would take about 53 seconds for the far end to move, since the atoms cannot move faster than light.

Please provide me with a greater challenge that something you thought up while drinking.

Cool

Not quite, the speed of light is 300,000 KM/second. Mechanical disturbances/compression waves travel through materials at the speed of sound, not light.

Which works out to 343 meters/second. A 2 mile long stick in space would take 3218.69/343=9.4 seconds for the other end to move once you push on the front end.

Anyways pass that, we both at least know the earth is a globe  Smiley

It's been a few years but, it was the last time I played with a slinky if I recall correctly.

Upward tension and bottom gravity cancel each other out, it's not into the information propagates to the bottom that the result is positive and it falls. If you take a really long stick like a 10 miles long and place it in space, and then push on one end, the other end doesn't move instantly, it takes time for the wave to reach the end.

Understanding simple physics would make you not use it as an explanation for a flat earth.

When you go stand on a scale and weigh yourself, that's in relation to the earth's body which is gravity, If the earth wasn't here, and you were in the middle of the void/space there would be no weight. Other examples is airplane zero gravity experiences they do on Earth, where the air pilot puts the airplane in a temporary nosedive towards the ground then swing upwards, creating 0-G where you can float for 15 seconds. If Gravity didn't exist, then why would you float for no reason? Water bubbles become a sphere floating, and so on.

notbanman,

Why when you flush the toilet on the northern hemisphere the water spin clockwise, and on the southern hemisphere, counterclockwise? Unlike you, I have traveled and saw these effects.
100% can only occur on a globe earth, should be the same on either side of the earth if it was flat.

If the sun/moon are just projections on a dome around the earth. Then what about the distant galaxies powerful telescopes take picture of?

What about the people that witness the rocket launched from the launch pad upwards, and into space? Are they all just faking it just because?
And if there was a magical dome around the earth, that rocket would hit the dome.

Occam's razor - The simplest solution tends to be the correct one.

Conveniently having the planet be in the shape of a flat disk, with a dome around it with holographic projections, and the sun orbiting the earth, as a 33-mile projection, requires much more complexity.

Rather than billions of solar systems with stars, and planets that orbit the sun, with no structures around the planet.

GO! Its the only game that has not been beat by AI.



Did you not see the match? It has beaten the best go player in the world 4-1, and that was year+ ago. The new iteration is so good,
that it beats all the top pros 100-0 without a single win.

A sextant measures angles on a plane and 1 minute = 1 mile; this can't be refuted.

Space is made up of an infinite number of planes, all of which are either parallel to each other, or at an infinite number and variety of angles to each other. This is precisely why a sextant is not accurate for measuring distance and sizes of very distant objects in space.

Where is the distance limit on FE? Does FE go on forever in every direction? Even if there is a dome, why wold space not go on forever in every direction, right on through the water above and outside of the dome, just like FE might go on forever past the point where the dome touches down on the ice/land outside the ice limit that GE people call Antarctica?

Or do you think that the flat earth is a simple plane, made up of an infinite number of points that have a length/width relationship to each other, but no height relationship to each other?

You seem to be missing a lot in your primitive calculations.

Cool

The Sun's diameter is 32' (arc minutes/nautical miles) and this is a direct measurement with no calculations involved. Only when the question of distance (from viewer to Sun) comes into play is trigonometry involved and, the margin of error in either case is not millions of miles for God's sake.

My proof stands and can't be refuted.

How can you measure a projection? Impossible, the sun is nothing, it's just an image, you said that.

Exactly, make your mind up, is it a holographic projection? How can you measure a projection, since its just an image and nothing else?
And if it's not a holographic projection, then during the eclipse the moon would be glowing and hot.

Another factor is telescopes can concentrate the light into a tiny beam, and burn wood and stuff. So if its a hologram, explain that.

If you believe any of following then you are my enemy, fuck you!

1. If you belive we live on a globe then kill yourself.
2. If you believe in "outer space" then kill yourself.
3. If you believe planets are heavy balls in the sky then kill yourself.
4. If you believe we are in motion then kill yourself.
5. If you believe that the Sun is a "thermonuclear" bomb a million miles wide then kill yourself.
6. If you believe NASA landed men on the Moon then kill yourself.
7. If you believe that bodies of water are curved then kill yourself.
8  If you believe the horizon curves then kill yourself.
9. If you believe there are astronauts flying like birds inside a can in the sky below your feet then kill yourself.
10. If you believe the stars are Suns then kill yourself.
11. If you believe that boats sail up, over and behind a dome of water (see #7) three miles out then kill yourself.
12. If you believe the Sun (see #5) is millions of miles away then kill yourself.
13. If you believe there are multi-ton objects called satellites flying below your feet with nothing holding then "up" then kill yourself.
14. If you believe a sextant measures angles on a sphere then kill yourself.
15. If you believe that sailing or flying around the world proves we're on a globe (see #1) then kill yourself.

Fifteen reasons why you need to hang by the neck until dead.





1) If you believe we live on a flat earth then you're deluded

2) If you believe nothing is outside Earth then you're crazy

3) If you believe planets are not real then you are a nut case

4) If you believe we are not in motion then you are a science idiot

5) If you believe that the sun is not a "thermonuclear" bomb then you need to go back to school

6) If you believe Nasa moon landing is all a conspiracy then you need to put on a tin foil hat

7) If you think bodies of water are not curved then you are a visual idiot and need glasses to see.

8  If you believe the horizon doesn't curve then you are a moron

9) If you believe astronauts and NASA are all fakery/conspiracy then you need to hang out with other tin foil hatters on abovetopsecret.com  

10) If you believe the stars are not Suns then you are unknowledgeable

11) If you believe that boats sail flat forever (see #7) even three miles out then learn to observe

12. If you believe the Sun (see #5) is 1000s of miles away then go to a special class for people like yourself

13. If you believe satellites can't orbit the earth in space then again go back to elementary school

14. If you believe a sextant measure distance then you are delusional

15. If you believe that sailing or flying doesn't mean we are on a globe (see #1) then you belong in the looney bin.

Fifteen reasons why you are in a world of your own.

^^^ Fraudulently performed experiments don't prove anything; they didn't level the laser. Not only that in the previous experiment they used CGI to add a helicopter and hoax enough curvature to hide it. 100% provably fraudulent documentery by PBS/Discovery.


PBS Fakes Curvature Experiment -- https://youtu.be/mqoB0ucBOyg



KYS.

Except the fact you can TRAVEL here any time and snap this photo.
lake Pontchartrain in Louisiana, United States. This is only 100% possible on a curvature earth.

In the ocean, you see boats cut off, and slide off, while you argue its visual/distance.

There is an experiment that refutes this and further demonstrates the Earth is, in fact, a sphere.

1) Find a flat land patch, say desert, big field, etc.
2) Set a laser 3 meters above the ground
3) Drive in any direction you like for 15-20 KM.
4) Place a segmented graph that is 3 meters tall and see if the laser still shines at the 3-meter mark.

This strongly suggests a curvature earth model. As if the Earth was 100% flat, you'd see the laser at exactly the 3-meter mark.



Anyways the test I have suggested has been done with a perfectly leveled laser. And a 6 feet drop after several miles.
Watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVa2UmgdTM4

If the earth was flat, the laser should remain at the exact same level on the boat

I should invent a device that measures angles on a sphere, you guys are a fucking joke.

Also, other flaws are if the sun/moon are holographic projections, and the star is just projections from a concave mirror.
Then what do you think would happen if you shined a really powerful laser at the sky? Since it bounces off the mirror, and you'd see evidence
of this "imaginary" structure.

Something like this:

Flat Earth confirmed.

Just seems to go out one ear and the other, did you even think or ponder "what if" statements to the picture above I have shown?
Because you'd get the same reading of 32 arcminutes. If the sun was twice as large, further away, or 4x as large and even further away, appearing
same size in the sky.

If you can't think, understand simple logic, or even acknowledge the "same perception - same 32 arcminute measurement", then you are beyond deluded and in a world of your own.
20  Other / Off-topic / Re: Flat Earth on: November 08, 2018, 04:39:30 AM
However, proving any information to a flat-earther is nearly impossible if not impossible. If you send one on a rocket into space and tell them to look out the window, they will say the windows are screened/faked with a display. If you put in a spacesuit into space, the glass on the spacesuit or they have been drugged.

 Roll Eyes

Also, you don't understand perception, how a sextant works, and angle doesn't measure distance. Imagine the sun was twice as large, but further away.
