This has been some good stuff to read here. I'm not a flat earther but I can't dismiss it either. Not until someone takes my ass up into outer space damn it!

One thing to keep in mind as to why we can't believe everything that is taught to us. If I'm correct (could be complete BS) the way we look at our globes and maps is completely wrong. They should be flipped upside down to be technically correct? I thought I read at one point that they were flipped to what they are now for the sole purpose of it just looking better to the eye.

Again If you post quotes and such post the links showing us where you have otten them.
You should know this already.


I found where the "quotes" projectbane used have come from and kind of makes you realise the mindset!!


Astronomers say the magical magnetism of gravity is what keeps all the oceans of the world stuck to the ball-Earth. They claim that because the Earth is so massive, by virtue of this mass it creates a magic force able to hold people, oceans and atmosphere tightly clung to the underside of the spinning ball. Unfortunately, however, they cannot provide any practical example of this on a scale smaller than the planetary. A spinning wet tennis ball, for instance, has the exact opposite effect of the supposed ball-Earth! Any water poured over it simply falls off the sides, and giving it a spin results in water flying off 360 degrees like a dog shaking after a bath. Astronomers concede the wet tennis ball example displays the opposite effect of their supposed ball-Earth, but claim that at some unknown mass, the magic adhesive properties of gravity suddenly kick in allowing the spinning wet tennis ball-Earth to keep every drop of “gravitized” water stuck to the surface. When such an unproven theory goes against all experiments, experience and common sense, it is high time to drop the theory


Came from here


During Captain James Clark Ross’s voyages around the Antarctic circumference, he often wrote in his journal perplexed at how they routinely found themselves out of accordance with their charts, stating that they found themselves an average of 12-16 miles outside their reckoning every day, later on further south as much as 29 miles.


Came from here


Lieutenant Charles Wilkes commanded a United States Navy exploration expedition to the Antarctic from 1838 to 1842, and in his journals also mentioned being consistently east of his reckoning, sometimes over 20 miles in less than 18 hours.

When you see the sites such as the "Flat Earth Society" being used, then perhaps it was embarrassment that the sources were not given when requested!

We are in 2015 and we are debating with folk that still believe in the flat Earth theory


We can fly to the moon, send space craft to the edge of our solar system, our telescopes can see 13 billion years into the past and yet we still have folk believing that the Earth is not a sphere!!

You don't believe that right? So if you fly from america to Canada you are going south? Or are the north/south poles flipped too?

And while on the subject you can dismiss it easily without being ignorant. People lose all credibility when they say they can't dismiss it cos I haven't see it with my own eyes. Not everything is a conspiracy.

Just think about day and night.

Good investigating. I think he might be part of the christians against dinosaurs cult.

I hear you, but then, why all earth's pic is perfect round shape? They went to space so many times, why do they have to generate computer images of the earth?

BUT I do know and you can look it up anywhere you wish, that NO experiment or proof that the earth spins has ever been scientifically performed.

No scientific experiment that has been proven and I mean PROVEN by either the scientific or the layman community has ever proved that the earth is moving at all!!


That is just not true.
At the equator, you weigh less than you do at the poles. On average, around 0.5 per cent less.
The reason is centrifugal force, and the only explanation for that is Earth rotation.

You really need to get some Science under your belt before posting statements like this.

Because, and also what has been said several times in this thread, the out of roundness is only about 0.03%....28 miles compared to 8000 miles.

Neither the human eye, nor a picture is going to show that.

FIRST EVER PICTURE OF EARTH FROM SPACE


View of Earth from a camera on V-2 #13, launched October 24, 1946. (White Sands Missile Range/Applied Physics Laboratory)





A picture of Earth taken by Apollo 11 astronauts.


Neither of those pics have been "Computer Generated"

lol I have no idea. I just remember reading or watching something I thought last year about it. Heck may have even been on here. I did find this article which provided some insight behind this.

First pic looks concave like being in a bowl, funny that. Second pic, you have link to original source?

Why don't you take a go pro and a weather balloon and find out for yourself? If 3rd graders can do it, you might be able to pull it off!

Google is your friend - Just Google Apollo 11 Pictures of Earth!

EDIT - Serious question, how many ATS members on this thread believe the Earth is flat? Its getting more like GLP everyday on this site, I see that GLP last week instigated yet another IP ban for most of the World and every time they do, I think we see an increase in absolute tosh being discussed on this site.

I've read the comments, yet I haven't seen someone claim that the spherical wasn't observable (I can have forget with all the posts). Another question. Why the pictures of earth (complete) don't have any stars in them?www.nasa.gov...

The fact that there are no visible stars in photos and videos from the moon landing has also fueled some conspiracy theorists' suspicions, though NASA scientists explain that "the camera was unable to capture the light emitted from the stars because the bright sunlight hitting the moon's surface washes out the light from the stars."

That same bright light is the reason many astronauts' photos from the International Space Station appear to show space as pitch black and void of stars, write experts at PhysLink.com:

Not being rude, but when you have a question as you have twice in this thread that I have now answered, why not type it in Google first before typing into ATS?

Exposure time.

The Earth is bright, the sun is bright and the exposure time for those images is quite short.

If you want to see stars, you will have to expose the frame of the picture for many seconds or longer.

Just ask anyone that does this for a hobby.

So if I asked you if that was a still from a video or an actual photo taken?

In other words, it says a "picture" of earth. So that's a photo? Where is the original? Have you bothered to verify that or you accept it because Googles your friend and he said so?

Well that last question is gonna have about 20 responses alone. Camera focus/human eyes / earth's atmosphere.

This thread will reach 200 replies just from that post alone.
