In the defense of some, I had a map (as a youngster) that had highly extrapolated features-- New Zealand was moved from the corner (to save space) and juxtaposed it in a separate box to the west of Australia (of course, this was noted on the map).

It was (somewhat) similar to this:


Perhaps, hopefully, this is where some confusion has been drawn from?

Question:
You hire a baby sitter.. She shows up to watch your 2 beauitful children! During the conversation.. She tells you that she believes that New Zealand has moved and this is due to some sort of Time shift or Multi dimensional explanation. Now here is the question. Would you still go out to dinner with your wife? Would you leave the 2 most important things in your life with this mental midget? Just because you are willing to bite your tounge, and still show this person intellectual respect does not mean the rest of us have to. Do I feel that I am in some way more intelligent or "tighter wrapped" than a person that believes this rubbish? Yes I do! There is nothing normal about this thinking!!!! I believe that there are things that we can not even begin to imagine, in this big ball of life we live on.. But I assure you... New Zealand moving is NOT one of them. One last request... EVOLVE!!!!


Dude, you and the babysitter thing is old, plus it is not a proper analogy.

Myself?

The babysitter my wife and I hire will have a full background check done by three different sets of people, the F.B.I., because we will pay for it, a team of Private Detectives, because we will pay for it, and myself, because both of those groups of people are not good enough with their criminal background checks.

As far as I am concerned.

This still does not mean I would be an ass to those people who believe a "time-shift" happened, because I am a patient individual, and while I do not sugar-coat nothing, I sure am not going to treat them any less than human.

Sorry, whether they are right, or not, they deserve dignity, just like you.

Honestly, who the Hell cares if someone's theory about a "time-shift" sounds stupid, hokey, or ignorant, there are some people out there who still believe that J.F.K. was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald and that the 9/11 Commission Report was accurate.

I give all theories an ample chance, and if it is worth my time, I follow-up with investigating it, if I find it's bogus, a hoax, or inaccurate, I say so.

So far, if this is how people want to debunk the other thead, you're not winning converts.

You're just making people see you as a bully.

And I am a bully-buster.

your examples of JFK and 911... Are you serious? We are talking multi dimension and time shift... That is like comparing a sliver in your hand or amputating it... WOW.. so you see these two senarios as plausable? Someone who believes these 2 things are possible, are mental midgets.. That is my opinion. That should be where it ends.. You are not going to convince me that these thoughts ARE NOT a sign of mental weakness. I think we are finally seeing the effects of lead in paint.. and toddlers eating the chips.. Simply dilusional...And these 2 subjects surface their head with New Zealand moving? OMFG.. This is pathetic... I can not believe I am arguing about whether or not a CONTINENT moved over a period of 20 years or so... There are certain things on this site that make me question the mental capacity of my peers on this site. I will repeat ... If you feed a stray cat (in this case - An attention seeker or completely dilusional person) The cat will return until its food source is cut off..(In this case replace food with flags and stars)

I know I am going to regret asking this... but here goes..
How exactly would time shift explain New Zealand moving?

While I am neither defending those people neither am I attacking them.

Live and let live.

I would not explain anything regarding a country moving without referring to charts, graphs, specific G.P.S. coordinates, and or explaining temporal shifts and causal displacement based upon scientific data completely.

And or throwing in the Large Hadron Collider and or the kitchen sink.

S&F from me mate, there was a thread recently rambling about how AU was in the wrong spot and i basically tried to say what you've said here, except i was a little more aggressive as i was kind of offended by the whole thing.

Excellent thread! And you've hit the nail on the head here, it's high time sheeples learnt a little more about our beautiful and diverse land, sick of hearing things like "***hole of the world".

We're not some faraway mystical country full of weird and wonderful critters (ok maybe we are). Look outside your gilded box every once in a while and stop making assumptions about places that may as well not exist for you.

More than eighty million years ago New Zealand was connected to Australia, then it had the good sense to leave


It was pushed

hahaha, nice one!

I would add that it didn't take much pushing.
At least we know it got pushed East!

It's not racist. It may be 'country-ist', but certainly not racist!

I will admit, i knew where NZ was, but i had thought Australia was much, much further away from any other landmass, especially indonesia or papua new guinea and them. Could be out of date maps or subliminal re-programming or just me misinterpreting maps when i was younfer and the image sticking.

most of us who "remember" NZ being in a different spot have already racked it up to being bad maps. us "yanks" are not morons, the morons are the people who rag on us for actually believing what we were taught in school. the morons are the ones who don't read the other posts before posting or creating threads like these.

in the dimension we came from, it was in a different location - which would change the climate and everything about NZ. we cannot produce maps or "evidence" of how we remember it because THOSE THINGS ARE IN A DIFFERENT DIMENSION!!!!!!!

your argument is invalid.


wwhoooaaaaaaaa

2nd line

Actually I would feel like I let you down if I didn't suggest getting yourself evaluated and I mean that sincerely... by a doctor... in this dimension.

Racist? How so?

You just joined ATS, I hardly think you've been here long enough to call me out as a racist. Check my profile and my friends list. Many of them are different nationalities raging from Norwegian to Inidan
