flat earth facts, if u got nothing nice to say or dont believe dont comment or discuss
Rotation period is defined axially, not in relation to am x-y prbital plane. The very definition of a day is the period of time between two solar perigees on an specific location.
The biggest proof of the sheer ridiculousness of this theory is the amount of people who would have to be in it and the massive effort it would take from them so the truth doesn't spill to us poor inferior sheeple.
Every living and dead astronomer and physicist, everyone involved in the development, construction, programming, control and monitoring of every rocket, spaceship, satellite, antenna tower, GPS chip, GPS device, smartphone, and those developing related software for them. Every modern air systems designer/engineer, every modern liner/freight pilot and most sea men on control of long-distance vessels. Most geologists and many other related professionals and technicians from pretty much every country, no matter their political alignment. Oh, and also their leaders. Every single one of them, including those who are pretty much split from the traditional power circles. Let's not forget both sides were on this during the cold war too, yet none took the chance to show everyone how much bullshit the other side was giving them though.
Reputable intelligent people, rich people pouring millions and millions on useless programs just to keep people from knowing the truth, even some people I know and interact with personally.
But oh, the dirty, unwashed hack on pic related and some basement dweller on 4chan are telling me earth is flat so it must be flat. And their proof? Just some pics with half-assed physics that ommit the details that would make it invalid but keeps just as much as necessary to make it seem valid to the less educated.
ahahahahahaha! They aren't. That's how. How did you pull off my thumb? pic related
It's a nice mental exercise. I actually enjoy reflecting on these and cooming up with my own counter-arguments.
Then again i could do jsut the same without the need to respond to some troll on 4chan, but eh.
You cunts are so thick.
The earth is so massive its hard to even conceive. Its like if you were the size of an atom on the skin of an orange. But in our case its not an orange its landmasses poking out from a blob of water.
they are stitched together from composition shots. If you know anything about orbital mechanics you'll know the higher a sat sits in orbit the more delta V needed. The moon mission shot from 2975 was something like 10000 miles from earth.... Too stupid to understand ill assume.
Sorry nut perhaps you morts should look into the origin of the modern flat earth argument. It was basically a joke to prove how people are sheep and can be suckered into even the most stupid ideas.
No one ever actually believed the earth was flat they just believed, rightly so, that they could get the denser part of the populace to more or less run with anything
What constitutes a "full rotation" is a point on the earth rotating to face the sun again, which takes 24 hours year round. A day is based on the sun, not some non relative, absolute measure of frequency
Because there is no gravity on a flat earth? Because gravity doesn't work on a globe? Serially etc is this even
Also remindwe for every one of you fags trolling like you believe this shit, 100 real people actually do
but fr why does it matter if earth is flat or round anyway? how does it effect you on a personal level?
>40km difference on a 12000km+ diameter object would totally make ir look like this guys!
BTW even the image I'm posting the difference is exaggerated for explicative purposes. In reality the differnce would be barely visible to the eye.
>hundred feet to horizon
>ignores hundreds of miles of green cheese
on any sufficiently large rounded surface, the edge will appear flat
>flat earthers literally can't do calculus
>internet retards reviving theories science has already disproved
Not sure if "millions" but some certainly take it seriously.Be in contrarianism, distrust/disregard for the institutions and the stablished scientific community, the need to feel special or just plain and sheer stupidity.
They're amusing to look at though.
Yes, because "science" is totally not made up bullshit by lobbyists that pay "scientists" to make up "proof" for whatever theory they want that day. And next day, it's a totally different theory.
> live in Denver
> sky often used for chem trails conspiracy because the nearly total blue is easy to shop on
> people argue this shit in Denver on Craigslist as if anyone cannot just look out the window
It's a good way to practice but be careful, their complete inability to grasp simple concepts like the difference between a theory and scientific theory can be enough to make you want to Hitler the whole human race and start fresh.
So all you flat earthers are telling me that all these world governments who have been in conflict since the beginning of modern times cannot agree on anything except that they need to indoctrinate us into thinking the world is a sphere for no better reason than "just cause." And that also every government employee that works for a space program that numbers well in the hundred of thousands is %100 dedicated to this lie and there has been zero leaks of information or photos of our flat earth. Forget all the math and science you clearly don't know how to do, are you dumb enough to think all of that works out in a social aspect?
The true measurement of a day is 23 hours, 56 minutes, 4 seconds.
A full year is actually 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds.
There is a reason we have a 'leap year' with a full extra day.
YOU ARE A FUCKING IDIOT. Do you people even CONSIDER the facts before posting shit like this?? God damn.
Take a sheet of paper.
Draw circle in middle.
Draw earth continents.
Place dome over circle.
We have four corners on paper.
Bible mentions earth has four corners.
Thats our plane. our realm.
Genesis says God was hovering over waters.
So over a lake in his realm? Are we in something like a fish tank?
Earth was void. None matter.
Made firament. Sepetated waters around.
Now bringing up dirt to form earth.
All the dirt we see and live on is Earth.
The large body of waters are seas.
Does not mention all the dirt and waters is simply earth nor does it say its a ball shape.
I see a malevolence & sophistication in the way the flat earth idea is promoted. Whoever designs these memes & arguments is taking advantage of psychological tricks to deceive. Seems to me there'd be advantages to identifying people who are capable of magical thinking & can be misled in this way
Go to the ice wall or whatever the fuck you believe in and scale it. Take a picture of the dropoff. Oh wait. You cant.
If a round earth is a conspiracy, then what is it for? What is there to gain and by who, from hiding a flat earth??
It seems like flat earthers can't grasp basic science so they just invented their own brand of it.
Humans can't properly conceive how just how massive celestial bodies like the earth are, never mind the sun, or other stars or galaxies. These dipshits can't come to terms with having such a limited perception of the universe and had to justify it with nonsense theories.
That image looks cropped froma highschool textbook by the way.
Yes because every single war in the last century has been a lie, are the photos from those wars also photoshopped or are you just that dense.
Please go... And let them take you... It the ass...
