You may want to head next door to the religion discussion if you want to talk about beliefs.  I don't give a fuck what you believe in.  I give a fuck about what you can practically demonstrate.  

If you cannot practically demonstrate what you're claiming to me then your simply talking your religion.

What kind of practical demonstration do you need for gravity? Have you tried stepping off a roof of a tall building? That usually settles the issue.

Can you prove to me that me falling off the building was a consequence of the curvature of spacetime caused by the uneven distribution of mass and not something else?  

You don't need to go that far. You don't even need to call it "gravity" if you have some religious objection to the word. Are you at least willing to admit that there is a force that makes things move towards Earth? Let's call it "Joe falling off a tall building experiment force", or j-force for short. Now if hypothetically speaking the Earth was ball-shaped, or penis-shaped, or whatever - what would the j-force do to large bodies of water?

Things more dense than the air fall and things less dense than the air rise.  That's what I observe.  That's the how things fall.  I think we all get that one.  The big question is why do things fall?

Saying that it is a curvature of spacetime causing things to fall (gravity) it is where I have the issue and would like to see proof.  Why does the curvature of spacetime not effect the helium balloon?  How were you able to witness and experiment with curvature in spacetime?  Did you do an experiment where you were able to harness spacetime and prove this to yourself or did you believe what you were told?  

No dummy, density cannot exist without gravity, please go study.


''You don't think water finds it's level?'' YOU DID NOT ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS, STOP BEING A DISHONEST LIAR. What does level mean? Which level does it find and how does it do it if it's not gravity.

Triggered?  

If you don't know what level is you're a dumb fuck.  Not sure what else to say.  www.google.com may help you.

Also notice that you have no fucking clue how to prove it is gravity causing these actions we see on earth.  You can rant and rave all you want about gravity causing it but you cannot show a practical demonstration of gravity actually causing these actions to take place.  All you can do is shout in all caps.  Sit back down my little bitch and keep believing what other men tell you.





''a practical demonstration of gravity'' Rockets in space but then again you don't believe in space or rockets so it is kind of hard to provide a practical demonstration for you. Can you prove it's density? Because gravity has been accepted for many years now, you are the one challenging the fact that gravity exists.

''If you don't know what level is'' You clearly lack scientific knowledge and the only thing you can do is be a parrot or rather an NPC parroting the same thing over and over again, WATER FINDS ITS LEVEL HEHEHE.

''not effect the helium balloon'' It's affect btw, and it's fairly simple, I mean do you actually not know why or are you trolling?

Also notice that you have no fucking clue how to prove it is gravity causing these actions we see on earth.  You can rant and rave all you want about gravity causing it but you cannot show a practical demonstration of gravity actually causing these actions to take place.  All you can do is shout in all caps.  Sit back down my little bitch and keep believing what other men tell you.

It works the other way around, you need to prove that gravity doesn't exist. We operate under the assumption that it exists until otherwise proven, not the other way around. If we assume that gravity doesn't exist and there is no other theory to fill its place in the meantime, the most basic of things on earth stop working. Without gravity, there is no friction, how electricity works changes, the concepts of energy change, as well as a billion other factors that you can imagine for yourself.

Not everything has a practical demonstration. Some things are limited by your knowledge, some by funds, others by time. I don't refuse to believe that airplanes fly because I can't fly my own airplane to see how it responds. I can observe airplanes flying, and listen to someone explain why it is. A child can understand that a plane flies, even if they haven't had vector calculus to understand why that is. If their explanation makes sense, I believe it. If there are any cases where what they said isn't true, then I don't believe it, unless there is a good reason for that. Without what other men tell us, we wouldn't know how to do basic math, how to dress ourselves, or start a fire. There isn't something inherently bad about listening to others. "History" is how humanity evolves. We wouldn't get very far if no one thought to tell others how to make a fire, and we had to wait for someone to figure it out in every generation.

You need to come up with a unified theory of how everything else continues working using your theory that gravity doesn't exist, and that density is what matters if you want to make your case. Keep in mind that you can't use evidence to support your case, if your theory throws out the basis for that evidence.

^^^ There's no vanishing point on a globe, the horizon is curvature. In reality the horizon is the result of convergence to a point on a plane. The sextant measures angular size from the vanishing point, this is impossible on a globe. We're not on a globe the Earth is flat, it's measurably flat.

''There's no vanishing point on a globe'' Why not?

''The sextant measures angular size from the vanishing point'' Who told you this? https://www.wikihow.com/Use-a-Sextant


There's no vanishing point on a globe because it's hidden behind curvature. Who told me how to measure angular size? Well certainly not the Jews at wikipedia, those wikihow instructions are just the basics and don't cover angular size. Measuring angular size is covered up, it's a conspiracy (Jews control all information with few exceptions) and there's no readily available source that will discuss measurement because it's impossible to measure on a globe. I've explained how angular size measurement works, you should kill yourself instead of insisting it's impossible.



Do you know what the vanishing point is? Can you define it for me please since I can't trust the jews at wikipedia? What I understand the vanishing point is not something physical. It's not a real point in space, 2 parallel lines never touch, just like in your example, the rails never touch, do they? So how are you measuring anything from the ''vanishing point'' if the vanishing point doesn't exist?

The explanation for this is complex, short answer it's an emergent visual object. The Jews will tell you all about perspective on a plane and the vanishing point, but only within an artistic context, and only in an advanced art class. If you don't want to pay the Jew school there's some resources online, look up perspective and drawing and you'll find some information that can also be applied physically.

Hitler spoke about the Jews and art in his famous book, you could also look that up too.

So what is it? You didn't answer at all, how do you calculate where the vanishing point is and how do you use that to measure angular diameter with a sextant? You lying?

The vanishing point isn't calculated, it's observed; the horizon line goes in one of two mirrors when making angular size measurements. You asked for information and when I explained where to find a more detailed explanation than just "an emergent visual object" you imply I'm a liar? Go off yourself.

"...density cannot exist without gravity..."

So a dense mass causes gravity and gravity causes a dense mass? Globe logic at its finest, nothing works quite like using an unproven theory in conjunction with circular logic to prove your point.

Things more dense than the air fall and things less dense than the air rise.  That's what I observe.  That's the how things fall.  I think we all get that one.  The big question is why do things fall?

You don't even need to get into "why" to understand how water "curves" around the Earth. You just need to know that things fall towards the Earth, whatever force is causing that.

All bodies of water that I see and deal with on a daily basis find their level.  A cup of water, toilet water, bathtub.  Everywhere around me water is level.  Where is this bendy water you speak of? 

How did you measure the "levelness" of water in your bathtub? Is your method accurate enough to detect the curvature of the Earth? Or do you perhaps have a bathtub or another body of water that is sufficiently large, e.g. a few miles across?

What is a horizon line exactly? And how do you calculate it to use it with the sextant?

The horizon line is a visual object that's observed not calculated; the image of a line is formed (emerges) due to optical convergence (and perspective) on a plane. The vanishing point is a point on the horizon line where, an object (or area) is no longer visible due to its visual (apparent) size being too small to resolve with the eye; all the points on the plane form a line.

The sextant is a simple tool like a ruler, it measures the angle between two objects using two mirrors and the eye. One of the two objects is almost always the horizon line, but it doesn't have to be. Once you've measured your angles then you can use them with your calculations; your action could be a simple as measuring the time of day with the Sun or a complex navigational calculation with the stars. You can also measure size and calculate distances (with trigonometry); one minute is equal to one mile.

Correct.  You cannot measure distance with it.

...
What is a horizon line exactly? And how do you calculate it to use it with the sextant?

The horizon line is a visual object that's observed not calculated; the image of a line is formed (emerges) due to optical convergence (and perspective) on a plane. The vanishing point is a point on the horizon line where, an object (or area) is no longer visible due to its visual (apparent) size being too small to resolve with the eye; all the points on the plane form a line.

The sextant is a simple tool like a ruler, it measures the angle between two objects using two mirrors and the eye. One of the two objects is almost always the horizon line, but it doesn't have to be. Once you've measured your angles then you can use them with your calculations; your action could be a simple as measuring the time of day with the Sun or a complex navigational calculation with the stars. You can also measure size and calculate distances with trigonometry; one minute is equal to one mile.



So you measure the sun to be ~ 30 arcmin, how do you now calculate the distance to the sun exactly?

Correct.  You cannot measure distance with it.

Wrong (you). Angular size is a measure of the distance an object physically spans (its diameter) and it's measured directly with two measurements, no trigonometry required.

You are using too many wrong assumptions to even need to discuss whether you are interpreting a reading from a sextant right. Optics do not work the way we all seem to agree they work if you make changes to the distance of celestial bodies from the earth, or change the base geometry that you are deriving optics laws from (which the sextant is basing its use on)

We can't discuss how to take a measurement of a sextant without first coming to an agreement on a lot of factors that we aren't going to. Your argument is using scientific tools that were designed based on physics, and then denying the physics that was used to construct them, and using that as your argument. Its the same as me saying that I'm measuring the horizon line with my chainsaw, and it works because my eye is actually a prism, and light is just electricity coming from a 40 watt bulb 15 fortnights away.

I'm sure there is going to be some angry incomprehensible babbling, but the point is that theres no way to have a discussion if you change a million variables at once and expect everyone to agree with you, by having them assume things that haven't been proven.

Express your opinion on the shape of the earth, the size of the sun, distance of the sun, speed of light, angles light coming from the sun, whether the light is polarized, whether its at all visible, etc. Then look at the assumptions that go into calculating distances using a sextant, and you'll find errors.

If you had any credibility whatsoever left, you wiped it out right here^^^.

FTFY

It's a 1:1 ratio for minutes to miles, the mile is by definition 1 minute of arc; angular distance is in minutes and linear distance is in miles, the ratio is 1:1 for the human eye.

Angular size (diameter) is a scientific coverup (conspiracy), there is no bullshit argument that you can make like with curvature; it's a direct measurement and has to be covered up. The sextant proves the Earth is flat by virtue of measurement. Also the size of the Sun is measured at 32' not 30', this is off but it's no wonder since you have to calculate it on your globe illusion from an imaginary center that you're fucking hallucinating! Even Google says the Sun is 32' - why? -, because Google used a source that measured it instead of calculating it based on the worlds largest pile of bullshit!

Speaking of the devil, I hear the Google maps engineer has had all of his social media accounts suspended after stating openly the numbers NASA gives are bullshit.

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.

Gee, I sure do hope the 1:1 ratio between arc minutes and nautical miles has nothing to do with the properties of a spherical earth.

Radius of Earth = 3959 Miles
Radius of Earth in Nautical Miles = 3959 Miles / 1.15078 Miles/Nautical Mile
Radius of Earth in Nautical Miles = 3440 Nautical Miles
Circumference of Earth in Nautical Miles = 2*Pi*3440 = 21603 Nautical Miles

1 degree is 1/360 degrees, 1 minute is 1/60th of 1 degree = 1/21600 degrees

So, we've established the radius of the earth is 3959 Miles, or Sextants stop working. Are we in agreement about that?
