Lol, I had forgotten moo buckets was the one who started that horrific Gamergate thread. Not shocking he believes this crap again.

Henry nailed it about these conspiracy tards years ago. They are simply huge losers, so they believe in these ridiculous theories and know the "truth" so that gives them comfort despite their failing lives.

I have no idea what Moo Buckets does for a living, but surely there is someone out there with enough surplus cash that could set up a "think tank" to employ MB (and TBAB while we're at it). Just imagine the societal impact they could have if they had full time to devote to the pursuit of the real truth.

I was gonna ask OP, if the earth was flat, then what happens when someone reaches the end of it? do they fall off the edge? luckily this is answered in the faq and even has a picture! for you sheeple who don't know, there is a giant wall of ice (what we call Antarctica) surrounding the flat earth, that holds in the oceans. now I know where George R.R Martin is getting his ideas for game of thrones.

How do the flat earthers explain the tides? Is it a coincidence that spring and neap tides align with the positions of the sun and moon?

The fact that the ice walls haven't melted pretty much proves climate change is another lie.

there's a few threads on the flat earth forums about this, usually they just make something up on the spot. I'm not sure the exact consensus on this, because there's no unifying flat earth theory. Just a lot of youtoobz and conspiracy theories.

It's pretty impossible to debate someone that presents themselves from a "scientific" standpoint but does not believe in science, or even basic mathematical theory. I think that forum is at the point where at least half the people on there are just there to troll the flat earthers. To their credit though, they don't typically ban those people.

It's been a passing hobby/fascination of mine for a few years. I was raised to believe every kind of conspiracy theory from my mom, she's exactly that type of person. I never post on there but I'm fairly familiar with all the apologia. It's really fascinating and weird. I'm pretty sure it's like the "end stage" conspiracy theorist's conspiracy theory, when someone goes waaay too far down the rabbit hole. There's been a study about how belief in one conspiracy theory makes you more likely to believe other theories.

I kind of think it starts from a belief that the moon landing was fake, which explains all the weird NASA **** they believe.

The moon landing is in a different league though, fe is obviously false but the whole flag and shadow situation has not really been resolved wrt the moon.

My daughter and I were talking about this and wondering what the most commonly believed conspiracy theory is. I said that it's JFK, to which she replied "yeah, but that's not even really a conspiracy theory", meaning she believes of course there's more to the story than we've been told. Which I think I also believe, to a point. And according to the tubes the vast majority of people believe that Oswald was not acting alone.

i'm surprised there's no pseudoscientific consensus on tides.

i also like that this is a tremendously huge conspiracy, paying off every scientist and science student with access to top technology that could blow this whole lie out of the water. while simultaneously allowing any idiot with no knowledge or access to top technology to start a website or youtube that gets millions of hits. if it's really this massive of a conspiracy to suppress truth how simple would it be to censor the truth online? they censor porn on youtube, why isn't all this flat earth truth on the dark web? are you telling me YOUTUBE isn't in on the conspiracy??

Screamin,

That's why most of these flat earth guys you see are a little kooky.

They let the dumber ones remain to make the conspiracy look more legit. You can only find all the really credible scholars with serious flat earth breakdowns on the Dark Web.

Why would you deprive yourself of the opportunity to go to a source yourself since all these cats do is repeat something someone else said?

The sun is closer to the earth than New York City is to SF.

Quote:
Every 28 days:
1. the sun circles the earth 28 times, and
2. the moon circles the earth only 27 times.

In other words, the moon moves slower than the sun. That is what causes the moon phases.

This is because:
1. the sun circles the earth in 24 hours, and
2. the moon circles the earth in 24 hours and 50 minutes

Thus, a complete lunar cycle is composed of 28 days... that is... 28 days (of 24 hours each)...for that is when the Sun and Moon align again.... every 28 days.
lol

One thing about tides that confuses me is how come they work on oceans but not lakes??? The magnitude of oceans tide is measured in feet and on lakes mm to cm. You can explain the difference?

Is this for real?

Oceans are bigger. They hold a larger volume of water.
