34 pages and an abundance of scientific and empirical evidence but still the engrained ignorant refusal to accept definitive proof.

Truly amazing.

You called me evasive then didn't answer my question .


Explain to me exactly how you debunked my pictures taken from the Concorde? Hmmmmm?

All you did was claim they "could" be Photoshop. I guess in your mind you think people hunt down pictures of the horizon all day and photoshop them to fool stupid people who think the earth is round ?

What about the sunlight hitting the bottoms of cloud-cover on sunset? You can see this to happen fairly often.. and it's beautiful to observe, too!

How can that happen in flat earth model?

There are actual YouTube videos claiming to show that the Sun is below the clouds. Yes, really. Tried to link to one but started to lose the will to live.

They MUST be photoshop. The proof is that the Earth is flat, so those photos can’t be real.

But it's not as much the sunset a flat earther needs to explain as the sunrise, how they wake up everyday a moron.

Up to 35 pages and counting. Forecast for average temperatures and the state of civilization, moving into the winter months: expect steady declines.

Yup

That's position he says he "won" on. He didn't offer one iota of proof just a question.

Plus I put three examples up. This is the only one he tried to debate me on. He ran from the other two examples .


Just another day in the flat earth fantasy land .

It's not hard to explain how they wake up as morons when you take into consideration they also go to sleep as one.

You're making it harder and harder to try and see the glass as half full. Yes, who was it that said beauty is only skin deep, but stupid is to the bone?

That is a good one. I think I saw that here for the first time, recently. One of my favorites, so good to belong in the Bible, though it is in the Bible very much, in other words, is that immortal phrase of Forrest Gump, "Stupid is as stupid does." I like the way it incorporates the all important notion of a person's actions as a true measure, as really stupid people can sometimes seem smart, as a pretense, until you look at their stupid actions. When you think about it, it's often more stupid to act stupid, since actions often require a process to get to actions, people having an opportunity to think many times about how stupid the actions are, yet resolve to be stupid. Now, that's stupid!

Lol

I like the word stupid. It's one of the most descriptive words ever. Someone can be stupid, someone can have a stupid idea , Someone can have a stupid position then back it was stupid evidence, someone can have a stupid accident, someone can speak up and prove they are stupid, someone can keep quiet and prove they're stupid , someone can make a stupid mistake..... etc.

Hell there's a pretty good chance my post was stupid . Lol


I half remembered this quote so I had to go look it up . ( it was kind of stupid )

So... according to your ideas

Said plane would have to account for 300 feet per hour on a 6 hour flight... flying at 35k feet...

And some how you don't see that as possible...

Give it up man... You've shown repeatedly you know nothing about flight



What accounts for curvature on a flight, specifically?

It's not by sheer magic


The instruments on the plane.... perhaps even.... The Pilot??

moving at approx. 150–180 mph, 240–285 km/h to maintain flight.... at 35k feet, a 300 foot decent over an hour would be inconsequential



It would not be "inconsequential".

First of all, the descent would be measured by the VSI, as feet per minute (fpm). And it would measure a constant descent, of about 5 fpm, during the entire flight.

But there is no such descent measured during a flight - during any flight.

Moreover, it would be required to descend at a constant rate, on every flight, which is not the case.


Pilots would know descent is required on every flight, and what the specific rate of descent must be, for each, and every flight. But, again - no pilot knows, or needs to know, or needs to fly, in a constant descent.


It has nothing to do with 'minor adjustments' - various tweaks to flights, as needed, during a specific flight.

Adjustments don't always need to be made in a flight, or only a few, minor tweaks. Other flights have to make major adjustments, along route.

Adjustments are measured with their instruments, as well.


What now?

Said flight is 30k feet in the air... the decent you're talking about is extremely minor going at the speed required to fly

what now... How about... learn a little bit about flight and stop the nonsensical speculation

how about that?

oh dear - we has been through all this before - you just run way from previous explainations - and regurgitate the same spew 4 months later

thats the only magic here

ETA :

your utter inability to address the principle of COG [ centre of gravvity ] and aerodynamic lift are the crux of your delusions ovver level flight

oh and your VSI delusions NEVVER explain WHY you expect it to report a divve - when altitude does not change


I've already explained why 'gravity' cannot work - assuming gravity existed, a force of amazing powers.

A force that pulls all objects down, towards a central core?

If a plane is in flight, and a force pulls down on it, from 35,000 feet above the surface, what happens? Is the plane going to be pulled down? If so, what would the instruments measure? It is in a descent, so what makes it not measure the plane being in a descent?

Is a descent not measured because of 'gravity'? How could a force pull down objects, like a plane, but only pull them to an altitude originally set to fly the plane, for some reason, while also managing to show no descent being measured on the plane's instruments, which makes no sense, either....?

A plane flies in atmosphere. Level flight is measured by pressure in atmosphere. So is an ascent, or descent, measured by the atmospheric pressure.

If a force was pulling down on planes, the instruments would measure it as a descent. If a plane is in a physical descent, it is measured as a descent, by the plane's instruments.


Force, or no force.

You seem quite smart, do you have an answer to my earlier question, how can you see the sunlight in bottoms of clouds at sunset?

You believe that an incredible force, never proven to exist, would pull everything towards Earth's core, to the surface, anyway. But in air, the force holds objects to an altitude, above the surface!

Gravity is just another lame excuse.
