    No, but there is an ice wall with lots of forehead dents in it.

    Yep; found it:



    See, because, it's the Edge, and the song is called The End of the World, and, the video even starts off with a snow globe... never mind.

    Is the flat Earth spinning? If so, why isn't everything pushed up against the ice wall at the edge by centrifugal force?

    Because centrifugal force doesn't exist, silly. It's a made up term (NASA at their dirty tricks again :fisticuffs) to keep people away from the ice wall.

    Official Reply: that first clip sucks. I can make that with 0 budget
    The 2nd clip is cool, intense clip. The rocket seems to what we see from other angles- it goes up and then "turns with the rotation of the earth" & then end clip before it gets too high

    With this logic, shouldn't the spinning globe spin everything (including water) to the middle/equator?

    I do "get it"
    That film shows more than a refinement or tweak to the globe system- it is a monumental shift. It also demonstrates that mainstream Science doesn't know what they propse they know, ya know?

    The more I think about & read about simulated reality theory I like it. This seems work fine with hollow earth, flat earth, & globe models.
    It helps explain those strange anomalies like what happens in numerology or Mandela Effect/Multiple Dimensions.

    Actually, due to Earth's rotation, the equatorial circumference is slight larger than its pole-to-pole circumference due to centrifugal force. It bulges just a bit around the equator.

    In the same way that "The Matrix" does but, you know, with more ******** involved in the production.

    How do you come to that conclusion based on a film that has been disavowed by the very scientists it uses to promote itself on account of their being lied to about the intent of the film and then selectively edited to present a message that they didn't actually formulate?

    http://www.popsci.com/article/science/how-conspiracy-theorist-duped-worlds-biggest-physicists

    Given their willingness to lie their asses off, I suspect the guys responsible for that film are currently working on another intended to convince the world that there were only really 9 commandments.

    Hmmm, wasn't really planning on world domination. I just want a good picture for football.

    That is impressive. It cost them billions.

    Too high for what? Certainly not before it starts to show the curvature of the earth.

    You know what also explains the Mandela effect? People have ****** memories.

    You really hate the concept of Occam's razor don't you?

    I think they waste a hell of a lot of money, regardless of the shape of the earth, myself!


    People starve in Africa/globally while trillions are spent on just putting a few composites of balls of rock and ice in space onto Nasa's site.

    Why are we even wasting time debating and testing/proving the size/shape of the Earth, shouldn't we be concerned about the people ON the Earth? That's my own concern.


    But hey, this is the internet, so here's a cute kitten!

    Why is the FET so compelling?

    1. There are a lot of conspiracy theories out there. A number are true, some contain elements of truth and many are a load of rubbish but have parts that are convincing enough for whatever reason to convince people that they are true.

    2. Once one realises/believes that there are conspiracies that are really happening or have happened, one begins to look into all conspiracy theories with the feeling that they may be (or certainly have been) duped about a lot more/everything!

    3. These people often feel compelled to expose these conspiracies to the unsuspecting public.

    4. If only there was a mother-of-all conspiracies in which one of the main components of public knowledge was a huge lie, and revelation of which would change everything forever?

    5. We have all heard of flat earthers and laughed at them, but, with the rise in popularity of the theory, and being bored with access to the internet, we are likely to look at FET, and when the arguments for it, while not ever going to prove it true, as it's not true, are far more convincing and less stupid than you previously thought, this becomes a real possibility, and later, perhaps accepted. Here, you have found your mother of all conspiracies, so you almost NEED this to be true and proven true in order to prove everything else in one fell swoop!

    And there you have it... Why people get so wrapped up in FET!

    Reducing the space program to some "balls of rock and ice" represents a lack of understanding of the potential benefits of such a program.

    Beyond satisfying our desire to know about the universe that we inhabit, NASA's work has directly contributed to the creation/improvement of:
    • LEDs
    • Infrared ear thermometers
    • Artificial limbs
    • Ventricular assist Devices
    • Anti-icing systems for planes
    • Improvements to highway safety designs
    • Improved tires
    • Chemical detection
    • Underwater controls (just checking whether you are still reading...)
    • Video enhancing and analysis systems
    • Land mine removal
    • Fire-resistant reinforcement
    • Firefighter gear
    • Temper foam
    • Enriched baby food
    • Cordless vacuums
    • Freeze-dried food
    • Solar energy advances
    • Pollution remediation procedures
    • Water purification procedures
    • Computer software developments
    • Structural analysis procedures
    • Refrigerated internet-connected wall ovens
    • Powdered lubricants
    • Food safety systems
    • ...and more

    NASA is not some money-wasting group of nerds playing with their model rockets. They are scientists that have been making relevant and groundbreaking discoveries for decades.

    Not to completely derail an already well off the rails thread, but...just for clarification and direction and a method by which to gauge...

    What "conspiracy theories" are true?

    Thank you.

    Way to justify not spending that money on saving untold lives dude!
