  1. That is a garbage argument. The thread title denotes the subject not the damn conclusion.
  2. Yeah and not one of them will actually post in here anymore, not that they answer anything. Let me get this straight: are you suggesting that nobody contradicting what they post is allowed to post in their private echo chamber? Because that is censorship and against free speech. If anyone can post debunks in there, then what is the difference?
  3. The owner of this forum is for free speech. That isn't it. Allowing it to be discussed IS.
  4. That is the worst idea I have ever seen from you and amounts to another form of censorship. The discussion of a subject on a forum seeking truth involves counter arguments. How about we make one for a triangular Earth and nobody can argue about it. Just rename this thread and let the nonsense continue. If the flat earthers are afraid to have their claims shown to be wrong, what message are we sending out?
  5. Ignored of course but a really impossible to argue with video! Flat earthers unite - ignore everything and you will never be proved wrong.
  6. Anyone can have their assets frozen under the Anti-Terrorism act: Financial Sanctions, UK freezing orders - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) Not saying it's right, but in this case I genuinely wonder what it is going to achieve - maybe help other teams to catch up with Chelsea seems to be the main one!
  7. There was no indoctrination. You were educated and shown how the Earth works. Every observable item in our daily life confirms we live on a planet. You have decided to run away from debate because you are afraid to be wrong. You can't debunk it he says, what a comedian! I made a whole thread that not one of you has the courage to address. I even wrote a blog which was originally intended for a Newsletter on this forum: The Mad world of a flat earther...... (penguinsfalloff.blogspot.com) Every single image provided from space is arm-waved away! Debunking your daft claim about no curve.... I pointed out how little curvature should be visible by altitude and it was ignored. Haha, and the comedy routine continues. There is not one shred of evidence of the planet being flat. You can't even supply a map that actually works, or determine the Sun distance that works or explain day to day observations! There is no deception from NASA and there are more space agencies than them on the planet! The difference is you ignore every piece of counter evidence and run away from difficult questions. Cognitive dissonance is a condition with conflicting beliefs - you clearly don't understand the label you are giving. There is no pain - and the idea that you experienced it on your journey down the rabbit hole of misinformation is not the same for everyone. What is truly sad is that in every single flat earth thread, here, there and everywhere, flat earthers cannot explain a single thing, run away from difficult/easy questions and ignore things that contradict their daft belief system. Identifying yourself as somebody who is incapable of knowing they are wrong about something. For anyone in danger of being sucked into this truly daft belief system, read page 1 of this thread: Read this blog: The Mad world of a flat earther...... (penguinsfalloff.blogspot.com)
  8. A ludicrous statement. Showing it isn't flat in the first place is THE most significant of all contributions - a thread ender for most with any powers of discernment or integrity. No chance. The world is a planet and you don't get to have your own echo chamber whilst you repeatedly and tediously ignore copious amounts of evidence!
  9. Chelsea get kicked in the gonads: Roman Abramovich: Sanctions of Chelsea owner by UK government halt club's sale - BBC Sport The move is intended to stop Abramovich making money from Chelsea. The government has issued a special licence that will allow fixtures to be fulfilled, staff to be paid and existing ticket-holders to attend matches. Season-ticket holders can still attend games for which they have tickets but the club cannot now sell any more tickets. The club's merchandise shop will also be shut. The government is open to considering a further addition to the special licence which will allow the sale of the club. A condition for that to happen would be that Abramovich receives no funds. He has previously said that proceeds of the sale would be donated to victims of war.
  10. Oh well, we are into a seagull posting fest where none of the claimants of a flat earth can actually explain anything about their environment, yet the globe earth does so perfectly with every single tiny detail. How sad is that on a forum that seeks to get at the truth. Who figured out the Earth is round? Question: Who figured out the Earth is round? Answer: It has actually been known that the Earth was round since the time of the ancient Greeks. I believe that it was Pythagoras who first proposed that the Earth was round sometime around 500 B.C. As I recall, he based his idea on the fact that he showed the Moon must be round by observing the shape of the terminator (the line between the part of the Moon in light and the part of the Moon in the dark) as it moved through its orbital cycle. Pythagoras reasoned that if the Moon was round, then the Earth must be round as well. After that, sometime between 500 B.C. and 430 B.C., a fellow called Anaxagoras determined the true cause of solar and lunar eclipses - and then the shape of the Earth's shadow on the Moon during a lunar eclipse was also used as evidence that the Earth was round. Around 350 BC, the great Aristotle declared that the Earth was a sphere (based on observations he made about which constellations you could see in the sky as you travelled further and further away from the equator) and during the next hundred years or so, Aristarchus and Eratosthenes actually measured the size of the Earth! How early did humans find out the earth was round? (scienceabc.com) The Spherical Earth gets Scientific backing After the round earth theory generated questions and discussions, it was necessary for philosophers and scientists to identify the correct answer. During this time, a Greek scholar Eratosthenes identified the circumference of the earth. He observed that on the 21st of June that year, the midday sun was directly overhead the well and the reflection could be seen at the bottom of the well in a town named Syene. However, he found out that at the same time, in a town named Alexandria (north of Syene and almost 800 kilometers away), the same could not be observed. The sun was not overhead there. If the earth was flat, the shadow would be the same at both places. The shadow cast by the sun made an angle of 7 degrees with the vertical, which is approximately 1/50th of the circumference (i.e., 360/50=7.2) Hence, the circumference of the earth was estimated to be 50 times the distance between Syene and Alexandria. If you’re wondering what the distance between Syene and Alexandria was, it was 5000 stadia, a measurement unit whose use was prevalent during that time. This distance was apparently calculated by the travelers and would have been used by Eratosthenes. Stadia can range anything between 185-192 m. Hence, 50×5000=250,000 stadia, which is quite accurate to the planet’s circumference, considering the limitations of that time.
  11. Apart from the endless broadcasts showing the visible signs of war that is.
  12. Apollo samples prove beyond any doubt that Man has been to the Moon. Over six missions, 842lbs of samples, including 3m cores were retrieved. Lunar samples that have been peer reviewed by thousands of the world's finest geologists and petrologists. The samples have substantial solar isotope impregnation, many contain large volumes of micro-meteorite impact craters. They collectively are devoid of any contamination from oxygen, water or nitrogen found on Earth, have no evidence of fragmentation or fusion crusts from entry through atmosphere. They show evidence of formation in a lower gravity environment. They are entirely dry as a bone, with the only hydroxyl/water type substances existing within low gravity formed volcanic beads or apatite crystals. They cannot by any possibility be meteorites. They cannot be from Earth. This leaves the only explanation as retrieval off world. meteorites.wustl.edu/lunar/moon_meteorites.htm "Any geoscientist (and there have been thousands from all over the world) who has studied lunar samples knows that anyone who thinks the Apollo lunar samples were created on Earth as part of government conspiracy doesn't know much about rocks. The Apollo samples are just too good. They tell a self-consistent story with a complexly interwoven plot that's better than any story any conspirator could have conceived. I've studied lunar rocks and soils for 45+ years and I couldn't make even a poor imitation of a lunar breccia, lunar soil, or a mare basalt in the lab. And with all due respect to my clever colleagues in government labs, no one in “the Government “ could do it either, even now that we know what lunar rocks are like. Lunar samples show evidence of formation in an extremely dry environment with essentially no free oxygen and little gravity. Some have impact craters on the surface and many display evidence for a suite of unanticipated and complicated effects associated with large and small meteorite impacts. Lunar rocks and soil contain gases (hydrogen, helium, nitrogen, neon, argon, krypton, and xenon) derived from the solar wind with isotope ratios different than Earth forms of the same gases. They contain crystal damage from cosmic rays. Lunar igneous rocks have crystallization ages, determined by techniques involving radioisotopes, that are older than any known Earth rocks. (Anyone who figures out how to fake that is worthy of a Nobel Prize.) It was easier and cheaper to go to the Moon and bring back some rocks than it would have been to create all these fascinating features on Earth. " Summary: 1. Geologists have been examining Apollo samples for 50 years, there is complete agreement that they are authentic and from the Moon. 2. The samples are impregnated with billions of years of solar exposure causing isotopes impossible to produce on Earth. 3. It is impossible for a rock to reside on Earth without it interacting with the gasses or liquids it comes into contact with. 4. It is impossible for a rock to enter the Earth's atmosphere and still retain its outer layers. Apollo rocks have strong Helium 3 on their outer layers. 5. Lunar samples have in some cases been older than any known Earth rock. 6. The Apollo samples contain only water encased within volcanic beads showing formation in lower gravity. 7. The Apollo rocks contain tiny craters far smaller than any man made gun could produce! They also show redistribution effects called "gardening". 8. The Apollo samples have no terrestrial weathering they simply cannot be from Earth. 9. Apollo samples show evidence for a whole variety of meteorite impact damage. 10. They are bone dry with water-type material encased within volcanic beads formed in low gravity and apatite crystals. 11. It's been suggested that zap pits were created by guns that have limitations of 0.1mm projectiles when the zap pits are in the region of 50 microns (2/1000 inch) in diameter! 12. Apollo samples show evidence of formation with essentially no free oxygen. 13. Isotope ratios on Apollo rocks are different to anything found on Earth.
  13. You are too scared to answer my posts in the flat earth thread, so I doubt you are brave enough to take me on with Apollo. The Moon landings occurred as stated, no amount of youtube nonsense, all debunked, should sway people who seek the truth. Exactly. The spaceships used were old technology that doesn't meet modern safety standards. So what. He is quite correct. We don't have it ANYMORE. Implying that we used to! The blueprints for all craft are held at The Johnson Space Centre with many online hubs having a selection of them.
  14. Why are you posting such gibberish and failing to answer simple day to day observations that show we are on a planet?
  15. One of the major issues and differences between getting something as small as a Gemini capsule and an extra stage to get a large lander to the Moon with capabilities to get it back is weight. On Apollo 11 they originally weren't going to televise it, then decided on a lightweight system to video and transmit. Now video technology and TV transmission was way different then and also significantly worse than 16mm movie cameras. Gemini used a movie camera. This is enhanced by a very skilful youtuber. The original is a little more jumpy. But if you want to do a comparison, here is movie camera footage (also a little enhanced) taken on the Moon, not transmitted on TV: If anyone thinks that is faked on Earth they are living in cloud cuckoo land. The fact they couldn't do CGI of star wars as good as this should tell you everything you need to know, plus these are really long unbroken sequences, not small edited sections like in all films of that era. Nah, not in the 60s, it's a movie camera in space. I hope I explained it for you, low resolution video was the best they could do in the circumstances and era. There is significant movie camera footage from every Apollo mission.
  16. Why are you posting in every flat earth thread when you fail every post to answer anything! Tell everyone how your out of the box thinking explains these basic and irrefutable things: The Sun sets without any size change and that is impossible in itself. The vanishing point is named thus! The Sun's motion through the sky is the same at every angle, location and time. It NEVER varies - 15 degrees of angular distance per hour. On any map of the flat earth, the two tropic circles HAVE to be different circumferences - the Sun HAS to increase speed for the larger one!! It provably does not differ in speed anywhere, any time. There has been not one iota of scientific measurement that corresponds to a flat earth, including sudden speed changes from the Sun. The Moon is inverted in the Southern Hemisphere. At a range of distances starting with the unfeasible Everest height for the Sun - the horizon is a ridiculous distance away when it sets. ANYONE can take an image through a quality telescope of Mars/Jupiter etc. and see them rotating. ANYONE can take an image through a filter and see the Sun rotating.
  17. The phrase is cognitive dissonance and neither are really applicable. Dissonance is caused by a clash of ideas. I think a better phrase would be complete denial and evasion.
  18. Tell the forum what makes things go downwards in the first place.
  19. As if. Your blanket claim places vast amounts of people in a ridiculous made up conspiracy to cover up the shape of the world when every single piece of observational evidence shows it to be a planet anyway.
  20. The upside of you having me on ignore is that you cannot see me kicking your backside. The downside is you can't see your hopeless arguments getting embarrassingly torn apart.
  21. Gravity is considered by many to not actually be a force (although relative to us it most definitely is). But it certainly is not weak. Throw up a medicine ball in the air and let it hit you on the head. Two things will occur. One you will realise that it isn't weak and two it will hopefully knock some sense into you
