Some people just get stuck
« on: February 11, 2013, 03:32:45 pm »
I found this society of people who still think that the world is flat. Just a little bit behind.

Just a little bit...

I remember when some people inm my family still thought that the Earth was flat back when I was kid (in the early '90s) >.<

There's no way that site isn't trying to troll us, though... O.O

I took a look at some of the threads. Most end up coming down to, "you have to provide proof to your evidence first before we disprove it." Likely because they cannot disprove it. ;)

Though they seem serious. Or are some really good trolls.

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

Their FAQ is pretty interesting. :P

So according to them, gravity is nonexistent and objects fall to the earth because the earth is perpetually accelerating upward.

Supposedly, you'd be flying in a large circle :P

Regardless of the fact that the measured distance in spent fuel would increase the further south you go under one map they provide.

What about the other side of the earth?
Due to dissatisfaction, I will be inactive on Omnimaga until further notice. (?? THP hasn't been much success and there's also the CE. I might possibly be here for a while.)
If you want to implore me to come back, or otherwise contact me, I can be found on GitHub (bluebear94), Twitter (@melranosF_), Reddit (/u/Fluffy8x), or e-mail (if you know my address).

I've also enabled notifications for PMs on Omnimaga, but I don't advise using that since I might be banned.

Darn, even most elder people know that the Earth is round. They remember Neil Armstrong and stuff and have seen pics of the Earth ever since. If anyone who can use a computer still believes the Earth is flat for real, then they must either have lived underground since they are born but have access to food supplies and computers or they are from some dictatorship countries from which any scientific info is censored from TV and stuff and the authorities brainwashes people.

Wait what?
People still thought that the world was round in the 90s?
That was a thing?
I thought this thought ended in the middle ages.

Erm...how do they explain flying around earth then?

Supposedly, you'd be flying in a large circle :P

Regardless of the fact that the measured distance in spent fuel would increase the further south you go under one map they provide.


Also for us to stay on the ground it would have to be going faster and faster
Centrifugal force would make us go to the side.

So according to them, gravity is nonexistent and objects fall to the earth because the earth is perpetually accelerating upward.
Hmm, disproof:

1] Assume gravity does not exist and that in fact, the earth is perpetually accelerating upward.
2] Ignore the fact that 'up' is defined in relation to the direction of gravity. Assume that 'up' simply means that the earth is accelerating in one direction.
3] Select two objects.
4] Drop object one from a reasonable height, followed by object two.
5] Record the velocity of both objects at any given moment.
6] Note that the velocities are different.

If the Earth was in fact accelerating toward the objects and the objects were in fact not moving relative to the universe, there velocity relative to the Earth would be identical.

It is too bad that it is easily disproven :[ The consequences are mindblowing:
1] Observe the atmosphere.
2] Observe that generally, the atmosphere remains above the Earth.
3] Ask: How does the atmosphere remain above the Earth?
4] By the assumption, there is no gravity and the Earth is moving toward the atmosphere.
5] This means that the Earth is pushing the atmosphere.
6] If the atmosphere is finite, the Earth will push through the atmosphere.
7] Therefore, the atmosphere is infinite.
8] Celestial objects are thus part of the atmosphere and must not be more dense than the atmosphere.
9] What happens to the sun when we no longer see it? o__o
