my man doesn’t realize stars are essentially the Sun, ask him if the sun moves next


TheThinker25live

He thinks the sun is a reflection on the firmament so I'm not sure how well that would go


Fostbitten27

Their heads will explode if you ask them why the air we breathe gets thinner the more altitude you gain? In a closed pressurized system the air should stay the same. Also the ones who take a Bible verse literally that they take to mean the earth is flat. Get really upset if you ask them why they don’t take up serpents if you are taking the Bible literally.


nooneknowswerealldog

>Their heads will explode if you ask them why the air we breathe gets thinner the more altitude you gain? That's just what NASA wants you to believe. If you try to find out for yourself by gaining altitude UN Black Helicopters will capture you and freeze your body to make another brick in the ice wall surrounding the Earth's edge.


Fostbitten27

Oh shit!! I completely forgot about the Ice Wall of Death!!


nooneknowswerealldog

That's because the chemtrails include a hypnotic agent that impairs memory. Check the fit of your tinfoil hat for snugness. Sometimes the 5G can sneak in if you don't have a good seal.

Swift_Scythe

If there was an edge to the flat earth you know someone would put a hotel and fly people out to the tourist attraction.


Level9disaster

Just a correction. In a pressurised system gravity or any other external force still creates a pressure gradient. You can float a balloon in the pressurised cabin of an airplane to easily prove it.


aghilardi

If this nonsense could be whatever, why a flat earth? Why not something more adventurous, like ants are super clever and learned to travel between galaxies with the power of their minds, or there is a ghostly being that watches all of us day and night, and will punish our bad behaviours; there is no bound to ilusions right? A flat earth seems pretty dull.

You can't logic someone out of a headspace they didn't logic themselves into

Sit in a moving car and throw a ball up in the air. The ball won’t hit your face or fly away, it will go up and drop straight down. This isn’t prove that the car isn’t moving.


Das-Noob

No. No. No, you have to nail it to the roof of the car. 😂


Fraser022002

I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna use logic… if the ball is nailed to the roof, it’ll stay still until the car accelerates or decelerates, so unless the earth stops spinning, dumbass is gonna wait an eternity for his pencil to move.


MisterSmithster

But show him a helium ballon moving forward, not back in a car as you accelerate and watch his head burst


FuhrerGirthWorm

Wait. Is that what happens. Edit: Here is what happens.[ballon experiment](https://youtu.be/2-UzBitLmf8)


FillMyBum

Fun fact If you have a balloon in your car and accelerate forward, the balloon will go forward! The reason the balloon floats is because it is less dense. The denser air goes back, pushing balloon forward


baconit4eva

He could put his plumb bomb(?) In the car and once you were up to a constant speed and no changing direction, it wouldn't move either.

SteveBruleRools

I love that he thought including the amount of time he had left it hanging there mattered in any way


Purblind89

Yeah we need some kind of empirical test. Keep people like this from doing both. OR a way better way to break their echo chamber


Unindoctrinated

The best way to avoid having people embrace nonsense and pseudoscience would be a well-funded, quality education system that not only taught science, but also taught people how to critically analyse everything that they're told. Unfortunately, the politicians who determine the education funding levels do not want an educated populace, and the voters and school board members do not want children taught critical thinking skills because it would hinder their ability to indoctrinate their kids into their religion and/or political leaning.


TheSecretofBog

Taught middle school math and science (Earth science, biology and physics) for 18 years. I always imparted critical thinking and utilized open-ended questions in my lessons and discussions. To further support your point, I recall a parent angrily criticizing me because she said her son complained that whenever he asked a question in class, I oftentimes began my reply with "what do you think?". I always encouraged students to give an answer, right or wrong, with supporting evidence. She wanted me to just say the answer. I told her "that's not teaching. That's just telling." She did not accept or appreciate my response.


Unindoctrinated

Some people think that a teacher asking a student what they think sets the student up to be ridiculed by classmates if they're wrong. Maybe that had happened to the parent when they were at school? I'm old. My education was the three R's. Read, Rote and Regurgitate. Thankfully I was naturally curious and critical, and had a school librarian who was a better educator than many of my teachers were. In some places you'd not be permitted to teach critical thinking. To use a phrase that has been unfairly restricted to one segment of society; Thank you for your service.


Incognonimous

And you forgot that the underfunding for government provided education from kindergarten to highschool often forces teachers to be overwhelmed, overworked, and even buy Thier own educational and school supplies out of pocket.


Unindoctrinated

I tried to keep it brief. Mentioning everything that's wrong with the American education system would take hours.


gev1138

Hours? Optimist.


Incognonimous

True that


prpslydistracted

TomatoesB4Potatoes

In school we were told to question everything. Now even basic agreed facts are being questioned.


Joey_Jo_Jo_JrIII

It wouldn't matter because we would still have religion and religious schools. Most of these flat earthers are also religious.


Captain_Chickpeas

>Unfortunately, the politicians who determine the education funding levels do not want an educated populace, and the voters and school board members do not want children taught critical thinking skills because it would hinder their ability to indoctrinate their kids into their religion and/or political leaning. Bingo. 10 points for your house of choice!


Kennedy_Cooz

Ain’t that some shit!? You nailed it right on the head and there’s nothing we can do about it. Makes me sad for my son’s future.


Ok-Resolve4550

Very much true. Several actors have been striving for decades to get where we’re at currently and are pushing for more of it. They won’t be happy until everything on earth resembles Idiocracy…🤦


Unindoctrinated

When Idiocracy came out I thought the creators should have written it as the public being idiots, but they were ruled by an aristocracy of devious, but smart people. Then I looked at the intelligence of some senators and congresspeople and realised I was very wrong. There are politicians today who make President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho seem great by comparison. At least he recognised that employing a smart person was a good idea.


MindAccomplished3879

Idiocracy received no support from the producers and distributors at all. Fox, their distributor, refused to support a wide release and blocked Mike Judge and Ethan Cohen at every step. Movie studios saw the movie as making fun of the American audience and refused to participate. The movie came and went with showings in only a few local markets. It was till the DVD came out that the movie was widely seen and gained cult status because of the satirical take on nationalism, consumerism, capitalism, and anti-science views. Who would've thought reality is stranger than fiction? ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|facepalm)![img](emote|t5_2r5rp|8412)![img](emote|t5_2r5rp|8484)![img](emote|t5_2r5rp|8485)


Callidonaut

In another delicious twist of irony, apparently many of the big name consumer corporations who agreed to product placement in Idiocracy were literally too collectively stupid to anticipate that a film of this sort probably *wasn't* going to portray their brand in a sympathetic light.


Fostbitten27

Unfortunately the sequel to Idiocracy is life as we know it. Edit: my bad we are in the *Prequel now.

Put them in a van and go a constant speed of 60mph, hang a pendulum from its roof, and show these idiots it won't move when in a constant speed, and if that doesn't convince them just jump out the van and let it go off a cliff...

Medical_Analysis_888

So how do you explain the day and night cycle which is different in some countries,if earth was flat wouldnt norway be rid of the midnight sun


LiverOfStyx

Ah, no, you see, well, it is, as per, well, like... sun is a spotlight. Not kidding, that is their explanation, that sun is magically blocked from shining to anywhere else but where it is allowed to shine. It also has wild orbital mechanics, does not circle us but wanders around the plane. And the Moon cycles? Magic.


Medical_Analysis_888

Its kinda dissapointing,i expected them to have a good explanation


LiverOfStyx

Me too but they have great difficulties explaining days and seasons. I mean, they have some hypothesis how it would work but it does get quite silly, quite fast. Like.. what is holding the sun in that orbit and why does it have larger and faster orbits during the northern winters, where does it get all that extra energy from, and how does it cycle back to slower, tighter orbit for the northern summer so it can shine 24h above arctic circle... but is still straight above your head at equator every noon... Cause their sun is also what, 6000 kilometers above Earths plane.. So for sun to do all that, it has to have quite a wonky orbit or it has to be at multiple places at once..


TheThinker25live

Nope, it doesn't work like that just take their word they're "experts" at experiments they know what they're talking about, they just don't have a working model yet because of......reasons you know


sxixs

Reminds me of that flat earth doc on Netflix (I think) where they had a team of pseudo-scientists and they did all this research trying to prove the earth was flat, and one guy even spent a huge chunk of his savings on a highly calibrated laser and measurement device to set up an elaborate test. Then, the test proved that the earth was round. I'll never forget the look on his face when the realization kicked in. The thing I don't get, is if these people are so sure that scientists and researchers are wrong, then WHY do they have any faith in any of the tools or devices that have been created BY and FOR these same people?


SillyMoose90210

You see, there's two different kinds of light. The one we see with and the one that makes things bright. The latter is slowed down by the world's thaumic field... Oh wait, I mixed up our world and Terry Pratchett's Discworld.

avatinfernus

What he is trying to replicate is this https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foucault_pendulum Had one at my university. Very neat. Will even shift axis as the Earth does too. Anyway his looks too short and too light.


TheThinker25live

True but it has to be swinging to be a working experiment


CrieDeCoeur

Yup. This dumbfuck in the video conveniently missed that part.


keksmuzh

Dumbfuck also needs to invest in a tripod


sgtpepperslaststand

He’s missed a lot of things in life


Mieuleur

And it needs to move first. As the pendulum direction won't change, you can see the earth moving under the pendulum. Here the pendulum is static...


zyyntin

It's like Newton's laws WORK!


TheGrauWolf

Griffith Observatory in LA also has one. Quite neat to watch. I thought that was what he was trying to do, but forgot the key step of setting it into motion.


LiverOfStyx

Foucalts pendulum will eventually stop too, it needs external forces to start it.


uisqebaugh

There are versions which have a magnetic coil which pumps it on every swing.


ack1308

It also helps if the thing is actually swinging.


VibraAqua

Amazing how thousands of years have passed from ancient times when they knew the world was round, minds that shaped worlds… and people who failed HS science now have a voice.


W0tzup

Two things which have not been accounted for: 1) Centrifugal force. 2) Newtons laws of motion.

ChampionshipLow8541

“Let me conduct an experiment the wrong way, and use that as evidence for a theory that can’t be proven otherwise” 🤦‍♂️


PensiveLog

That’s how they do science. Sometimes they conduct the experiment correctly and it proves the earth is a sphere, so they discard those results and tell you the conclusion they wanted.

TheThinker25live

They're still working on the model he'll get back to you lmao


LiverOfStyx

You silly muppet, that is because sun is a spotlight. Not kidding, that is their current "model". They can't explain how it is a spotlight but since it has to be a spotlight for their theory to work, it means.. sun is magically a spotlight.


Heathyre18

Larry_Phischman

Remind me again why eugenics is “bad”?


Blaze_Vortex

Because idiots always end up in charge.


Annasman

Because humans are self-aware (mostly). because of that there's no way for eugenics to be ethical. And there's no evidence that you can breed for intelligence, at least in humans. Trust me, nobody wants this guy propagating whatever nonsense he's going on about, but luckily if he does procreate his children are perfectly capable (and likely) to reject this guy's backwards thinking.

nobody-u-heard-of

There's one that's posted every once in a while on here where a flat earther is doing an experiment to prove that the Earth is flat and it actually fails and proves the earth is actually round.


cstrand31

Yeah, it’s Bob Knodel. Prominent flat earther who spent $30k or something like that on a ring laser gyro, expecting to prove there was no rotation. Ended up proving 15 degrees of rotation per hour or something. It’s from the “Behind the curve” documentary on Netflix. Thanks Bob!


ComfortableAnonymous

Moron


iFoegot

If this damn thing is moving, you better run and get your ass out of the house immediately. Edit: in case someone doesn’t know. This actually works as an earthquake detector. As long as you are sure your doors and windows are shut and thus no wind is blowing, but this thing is moving, an earthquake is coming in a few seconds. Or if your body is sensitive to micro movements, you can feel it at the same time.

If he set it swinging, it would gradually precess, which would actually prove a rotating globe. But he won't, because he doesn't want to prove that.


The-Doggy-Daddy-5814

It’s not moving because it’s performing the function a plumb bob was designed for, using gravity to find a vertical reference line.

Callidonaut

The same ultimate purpose of all conspiracy theorists: self-assertion. Juvenile rebellion for its own sake. A sense of superiority, importance, achievement and validation. Sticking it to "The Establishment." Psychological projection of one's own ignorance and stupidity onto the knowledgeable and intelligent, leading to delusional thinking. It's a feeble power fantasy to soothe the insecure egos of those who lack the humility to acknowledge that there could possibly be things they do not know or comprehend, but others do.
