  • Earth is a ball

    Again, I am an adamant round Earth believer, but I don't let that get in the way of proper debating principles.
    And I’m pretty sure claiming literally everything they disagree with is a fallacy while committing fallacies (Especially the deflections and rehashing past mistakes)themselves is not proper debating, they just don’t get that, that’s why I try not to waste too much effort with them

  • Earth is a ball

    @Erfisflat, @SilverishGoldNova, and @Evidence
    There are so many more ways you can prove to yourself the Earth is round. You can see more things the higher up you are. You don’t feel a centripetal force like you would on a carousel. Long suspension bridges’ towers slope slightly away from one another to account for the curvature of the Earth. Every other planet is a spinning sphere. Satellites exist (as proven by the existence of your iPhone), and obey rules that only work if they’re orbiting around Earth. We’ve taken many, many pictures of Earth. Buy a weather balloon and strap a camera to it.

    Satellites have to exist for the internet to work. The TV would not be here without relativity which involves gravity. The ISS exists because you can clearly see it if it goes above your location. Since the ISS exists, the pictures are real. You can easily watch the youtube live stream from the ISS.

    @Evidence Just as a warning these guys don't wanna listen, they instead will mark your comment as a fallacy or rehash past mistakes.

  • Special counsel indicts Russians in 2016 election interference

    Nice straw man fallacy! It was this indictment that had no Americans! Whatever, the Americans that were indicted were: Paul Manafort and Richard W. Gates III. http://www.latimes.com/politics/washington/la-na-pol-essential-washington-updates-paul-manafort-and-business-associate-1509365548-htmlstory.html
    LOL, how does that work?  Manafort and Gates were indicted for working with a Ukrainian political party that was virtually disbanded by the time Trump ran in 2016.  So where's this collusion again?

    In this indictment! This is because there are still investigations going on. “There’s no allegation in this indictment ...". http://dailycaller.com/2018/02/16/rosenstein-no-collusion-american-not-knowing-participant/. ;

    Nice job at taking the quote out of context. 
    I guess you're talking about all those Americans who WERE indicted for collusion.  Who are all those people again?

    @Pogue and @Gooberry
    1. You guys act like 8-year-olds because you guys are 8-year olds.
    2. Here is some evidence for the flat Earth:
    a. The horizon always appears perfectly flat 360 degrees around the observer regardless of altitude. All amateur balloon, rocket, plane and drone footage show a completely flat horizon over 20+ miles high. Only fake space agencies like NASA and SpaceX show it with their CGI. 
    b. The natural physics of water is to find and maintain its level. If Earth were a giant sphere tilted, wobbling and hurdling through infinite space than truly flat, consistently level surfaces would not exist here. But since Earth is, in fact, is an extended flat plane, this fundamental physical property of fluids finding and the remaining level is consistent with experience and common sense.

    Gooberry Do you even know what the hell a red herring means? 


    Also. Let me point out that you just admitted that the argument you just made was wrong, and based on faulty data.

    why didn’t you check you’re sources and data before making it?
     
    I said that we aren't discussing Corsica, we're talking about Elba, I did not say my argument was wrong. Clear exaggeration, I can give YOU a fallacy for that.
    You initially admitted your initial height was wrong.

    Youre entire argument seems to have been based on this incorrect initial height.

    Then you seemed to have gone back and removed that portion of your post.


    And yet, I showed that it would still be impossible using your height(s). Is this debateisland or is this the kindergartners circus?
