Oh well. I guess I have to do it the old fashion way.

Steve, it is not you unless, with all evidence to the contrary, you still believe the earth is flat. :)

Every image from space shows it flat. Like a circle. ;)

he heh.
that's all the proof you need.

I don't believe the world is flat, it is sort of wavy, otherwise you would not get the Himalayas.....

geebax - obviously you haven't visited the other side, there's some pretty impressive holes in the ground....

It's not flat! It's a torroid! Didntcha know ... if you sail a ship to either pole you "fall over" the edges of the holes there and end up on the inside surface! It's true! I read it in a book once.

Ok, ok, the book i read it in was utterly trashing the notion as incorrect, insupportable, unscientific, and in contradiction of every bit of physical evidence, but still, i did read it there.

What about the dark side of the moon?

The Dark Side of the Moon

...... 1973..... I feel so ancient.....

It's not a moon, it is a cheese ball.

Don't forget the twin earth that is the other side of the sun in synchronous orbit.
CJB wrote on 6/4/2014, 8:41 AM
Twin Earth? How would you ever know. Lack of Sun wobble?
Chienworks wrote on 6/4/2014, 8:57 AM
You wouldn't even be able to see the twin Earth from the Moon. The Moon's orbit isn't big enough to see past the radius of the Sun. However, the Moon's orbit is big enough that you might just possibly occasionally see the other twin Moon while standing on our Moon, if both orbits were projecting in the same direction at the time.

Of course, that assumes that we can (or have) put someone up on that big ol' ball-o-cheese, right? ;)
TheHappyFriar wrote on 6/4/2014, 9:06 AM
You're assuming that the moon is really there, and the stars and sun. Everybody tells you to not look at the sun.... maybe so you don't see it's not there. :D

Fun fact, considering the height of the Himalayas, and the size of the earth, if you shrunk the earth down to the size of a brand new, never used billiard ball, the earth would be significantly smoother.

The moon is a dragon egg, when it nears too close to the sun hundreds of dragons will release.

I too have decided to renounce Google, Wikipedia, textbooks, white papers, math, science and all forms of recorded knowledge and follow the one true path to truth...
fasting in the desert and consuming large amounts of peyote.

I have made incredible breakthroughs. Wait till I unveil my new compression algorithm. ;-) Sorry, couldn't help myself.
VMP wrote on 6/4/2014, 9:55 AM
is all you need for eternal knowledge.

TheHappyFriar wrote on 6/4/2014, 11:21 AM
Well, google doesn't provide good results, it provides popular ones. Wikipedia has more information on fiction then facts (because it's easier to make things up then prove them), textbooks don't necessarily have correct information, just the information people want, there was that recent issue with "science papers" being complete frauds (hundreds of them) generated with a computer program so that people could keep jobs...

So I'm guessing if you keep math (because 2 + 2 always = 4 and the laws of thermodynamics explain when it doesn't ;) ) then you'll do better fasting in the desert eating... whatever then following the 'net's whims. :)
