    Which sounds more plausible. A horse with a single horn or a horse with horns and a 40' neck?

    Netflix did a documentary on Flat-earthers

    i actually watched a documentary!!!! damn!

    well.. there are 3 points in the film..
    that showed them doing experiments to prove the flat earth!

    1st:
    a $20,000 gyroscope was denoted to them by one of their members.
    if the earth rotates 15% every hour.. 360 degrees / 24 hrs = 15
    if left alone.. then the gyro will show a 15% change if the earth is round and rotating.
    if flat and stable.. then no change on the gyro.

    it showed 15% change. they did not like that.
    so came up with theories why .. and tried to correct it.
    still 15% change .. every time.
    they did NOT accept this.. and did NOT want to publish this info.

    2nd:
    they got a powerful laser.. to run a straight line over long distance.
    at water level... 3 poles .. same X-feet height marked on each pole...poles spaced out..
    if flat.. the laser should strike each pole at the same height.
    Failed.. could not make lazer beam tight enough at the long distance to use for measurement

    3rd:
    at the very end of the film..
    correction of the 2nd experiment.
    using a hole in a walls.
    at water level .. at X height.. a camera at the hole at same height..should see straight throw the ...
    to see a light shining throw at the same height.
    the light had to be raised up a few feet to shine through.
    "because of the curve of the earth!"

    film ends...
    but.. i dont think they accepted it.


    lol

    You sure Earth isn't a mobieus strip @dan330? That's a flat round circular surface.

    You're all wrong! Earth is in fact flat... It just happens to be wrapped around a sphere. :rolleyes: :goofydroid:

    Usually when I post Jumble puzzlers, it's in the punny thread because quite often they are puns.

    This one, however, was on-topic to this off-topic thread, so... :D :D

    BTW, once you get it, please don't reveal the answers...that way other people can enjoy it more.

    i dont understand.. why flat earthers spend so much money on stupid ways to prove this crap?

    building rockets..
    expeditions
    gyros

    why not just carter a plane.. head due west and follow the sun or moon.
    24 hr flight... dont let the sun or moon out of your sight.
    make sure you dont see any ice covered lands....
    then land in the same airport you left 24 hrs later.

    done.. round!!!!


    if you are delusional to think .. that it was a trick of the instruments.
    and you only flew around a big circle .. on a flat earth.

    then fly around the edge of Antarctica.
    which would be only a few hrs... on a round earth.
    but on a flat earth.. it would take more than a day.. because it is the very edge of the big disk!

    Ah, somewhere within the space of flat Earth belief systems there will be someone with an answer to that. There was one guy at a flat Earth conference last year who argued that the Earth was flat but at the edges were higher-dimensional portals so that when you stepped off one side you passed through to the opposite side, meaning you could travel in a straight line, end up back where you started, but the world was still flat...

    I really don't know who amongst these people is serious and who is indulging some massive meta joke. But anyone who can come up with stuff like that, or "universal acceleration" to explain gravity, or a conspiracy involving 10s of millions of people who are somehow all able to keep a secret, and claim that this is "simpler" than gravity and a spherical planet, really needs to open a dictionary and look up what the word "simple" means.

    I’m going to guess that when you mention Occam to them, you get a blank stare...meaning they are much duller than his razor. ;)

    Do these people think Earthrise is a hoax?

    No, they just think they’re looking at one side of a pancake. Of course there may be some crossover to the kooks who think the moon trips and landings were a hoax as well... I seem to recall one of their other theories is something about space and light bending to make the flat earth appear round, sort of like an off-center fisheye lens or a funhouse mirror.

    Lots of people are willing to believe nearly anything over the simple facts before them.

    I mean what exactly does Paul Logan think he’s going to find in Antarctica? It’s going to be a bunch of white that goes in all directions...or does he expect to come to an actual edge and peer over into nothingness?

    Heck, maybe he’ll find a portal to another dimension and stumble across Jimmy Hoffa playing pinochle with Amelia Earhart...

    I one read a cheaply-printed conspiracy theory magazine that had a two-page article on the evidence that the moon landings were faked, followed by a two page article on the evidence that our governments were in contact with aliens but keeping it from us.

    One of the proofs of the aliens conspiracy was that there was no way we could have developed the technology to get to the moon so quickly by ourselves...
