Rayn Gryphon +Terry,Cha,Sinsy There are peculiar electrical qualities and thus surface tension created by the specific molecular bonding of hydrogen and oxygen atoms. This is also why you can fill a cup over the brim without the water spilling out. You pose a great suggestion. Try taking a trip across Antarctica. This is also hypothesized by Math Boylan at youtu.be/xxyCpWcg-kE
JCDentonCZ 3 days ago If the Earth is flat, a plane, and the center of universe – Why would the Earth be at the very center? Is humankind this important to the entire cosmos that we must inhabit the most important and central position in infinity? If Earth (and other plane(t)s) are not ‘balls’, how should we consider space, the universe, is it at all possible to travel, unmanned at the least, between these planes? Or are all these planes, like the Planescape D&D setting, different existences, like Hell and Heaven and homes of different species or variations of humanity that seemingly failed for their plane(t)s have become lifeless? Multidimensions, multiverses, close to one another? What role do the galaxies have within the universe? How are we able to create and utilize technologies like electricity and magnets, magnetism in general if the sciences we based our findings on are so incorrect? Are the sciences partly (cashgrabbing) hoaxes, do we simply stumble upon solutions and base our theorems upon those? There’s a laundrylist of issues that need addressing in these things as it basically undermines practically all science of at least the past centuries of mankind. What will happen if we start to look at Earth, space and the universe in this different mind, the ‘center of the universe’ angle? Would we discover far better technologies and develop far more rapidly? Or would it hinder technological as a whole, bringing us back to our older theorems and perhaps clumsy (reverse) engineering? EDIT addition: Is the “flat earth” a artificial construction, then? The only material plane in existence, according to that book at around 8 minutes in. Or the TL;DR – Why does it matter so much? What does it change? Is humanity so central to the entire universe and existence? If so, why us, limited and self-destructive as we are?
Rayn Gryphon +JCDentonCZ The importance of our place in the universe does seem to be a very relevant issue. That being said, importance or unimportance does not necessarily consitute a proof or objection one way or the other. We have the importance that we have and the Earth has the nature that it is. Both are connected for sure. Our current depravity could argue for lack of ontological “worth”. But it could also argue for a truer nature than we are allowed to customarily enjoy, failing which we suffer as we do – and to this end the horizon of our visceral and abstract existence, that of the horizon of body and mind or earth and sky needs be guarded from pedatory insinuations, a subject of great speculation and interest among many I would imagine. For instance, as Jesus pointed out in His way of logic, why would arguably the most advanced nervous system on Earth need expend so much energy to meet basic shelter and food needs (and that at so great cost) when a small bird does not need expend anywhere near a similar proportion of energy?
HappyStackhouse this video is BS i flew from north america at midnight all the way down to Argentina, all night we could see how round is the earth as we continued encountering the sun already shining in the south….
Rayn Gryphon +HappyStackhouse We can readily observe that the light of day waxes and wanes periodically. That you found the sun does not disprove a flat Earth model, as both models would have to account for the diurnal procession of the sun. Your conclusion presumes there is no altnernative explanation than a curve, an ad hoc assumption or bias – as in “the Earth must be curved because everything we see must be because the Earth is curved”. How so?
Alexandra Gillett This is trippy to watch stoned. Horizon. Horizon! HORIZON! ….still nuts though….
Rayn Gryphon +Alexandra Gillett And perfectly logical. The horizon of a sphere could not possible stay at the same level of sight. If you can prove otherwise, I would be very interested to hear your proof. If you cannot provide one, then I would suggest that you are in no position to call anyone nuts. Good day.
Evon Ramirez Oh, and my personal and logical, answer of how we can see with our Earthly eyes, and by using special man made lenses, far distances across…… B/C, the Earth is round, and as it turns we as humans, what we have called gravity hold the condense on the Earth close to the Earth, as we use our human sight, our human eyes focus human distance. I live in the Mountains, and standing up on a huge domain, I can with no technology, see NC line and SC line across. It is a sight to behold, and miles and miles distance. Still, I can focus my eyes to see it until my human eyes are not in focus, and if I use the technology I can see even farther. That distance still does not prove the Earth is flat. It is the distance moving around the Earth, and the rotation causes us to not notice the curving effect, to be noticed. Just think about it this way. If you are in an air plane and you look down from high above, everything looks very tiny due to the distance. Why???? Our human eyes focus to the sight, as needed with the distance involved. Even the ants that live on Earth carry multiple times it’s own weight. Why?? Research has not truly found this answer, but they conclude that the ant believes it can carry this weight, and it is able to do it. That is really the concluded answer, thus far. Only God knows the full answer. Anyhow, I am going to pray to God through Jesus Christ, to give me understanding about this, and/or to even give a second thought to this interesting issue of a flat Earth. God bless us all, as we learn, WHAT GOD WANTS US TO KNOW. You know, I believe God does not want for us to know some things, and God has his reasons, why. We are not Gods. We are not Gods equal to God, and never will be. Even if we prove the Earth is flat, what exactly will it do for us???/ Just satisfaction to say we were right?……I mean really. Therefor, I continue to pray for us all, sincerely, and respectfully. Amen!!
Rayn Gryphon +Evon Ramirez If it is of no importance whether or not the Earth is flat, does it no follow from your contention that it is of equally little matter whether or not the Earth is round? Is your argument that the Earth looks flat from a great height precisely because it is a spinning sphere? Would not it be equally logical to presume that something could appear flat because it is flat? Yours is called an ad hoc assumption – “if we assume the Earth must be round, then everything must conform to this assumption”. You appear to employ a special pleading to bias over observation, which is a form of sophistry (specious or faulty logic).
Evon Ramirez 1 day ago What is your proof, that they did not go to space, and the pictures of the photos of everything is not real?? Just B/C they do not choose to show a different photo each time for us>>??? They do not have to explain why they do not take a different photo for us. Oh, come on. They do not have to do anything they do not choose to, in their powerful world. Now that does not mean I do not want them to do this, but I am just saying they do not have to do this for us. I know it is not up right for us, but it is true. They can do whatever they want, with no explaining. After all, they are the ones doing it, and not us, right? Right. Also, do you really think that God, our maker, wants us to put so much energy, into proving this issue?? I really am thinking not. What exactly will this help with, proving the Earth is flat??? What will it assist for us humans? God bless us all.
