This would be an impossibility if we lived on a spinning and orbiting ball.

Yet here it is. What does that tell you?

Perhaps that we do not live on a spinning and orbiting ball?

It was only a matter of time before Copernicus and Galileo would be called into question.
The current political correctness in science circles is sure to bring back Ptoelmaic earth-centric cosmolgy since it had the [b]weight [/b] of authority -including even that of the Church.
[When there is consensus in science, be suspicious.]

What made Science to be, (to give some few but significative provisory answers, not enough but still far better than thousands of years of nonsense) is to refuse to be defined by knowledge (a result) but by it´s object (so known as if not).
That qualifies consensus.
If it is based on a "worldview" apriori from the factual, it use to be crap.
If is a convergence of the scientific community with facts, it may be useful even if always under revision.
@ElRengo An open mind is always necessary, particularly in scientific endeavors.
ElRengo · 70-79, M
Of course, agree
Is one of those things that is always needed and never enough.
May be it would be even more important IF Science where mainly about what minds hold (cognitive).
But science is not only nor mainly epistemology.
It´s a bit like telescopes, you NEED them clean (as much as minds improve with less bias)
But science is about what is out there and not in the lens.

Duuuude. Reality just called. It said it hasn't heard from you in a while. Might want to check in.

That is precisely what it should look like from the surface of a round object rotating on an axis.

Polaris is called the North Star because it appear to be directly over the North Pole. Positioned like that, this is exactly the sort of image I would have expected for the view from a spinning globe

@Nelisme I believe that it's flat, but no one knows for sure. As far as we have measured it's totally flat, excluding hills, mountains, and valleys of course... the Earth is flat.
@TBIman Hmmmm. I was going to sign up for that ROUND the world cruise butthis casts the project into serious doubt.

oh wait are u having negroni.....sbagliato....w a bit of presecco in it?
ElRengo · 70-79, M
Not bad.
But I suspect that may be the case of kerosene instead
TBIman · 41-45, M
@btchstfu I do not understand your comment, but it's probably my fault because I am a flat Earther,
ElRengo · 70-79, M
No no
Not yours but Earth´s fault.
It refuse to make the effort to be flat just to please you.
What a..........
That's exactly what it would look like?
TBIman · 41-45, M
@MrBlueGuy No that is nothing of what it would look like. Think about it, man. A spinning AND ORBITING ball. We only observe one motion. That is of the sky spinning around us.
@TBIman Does the sky spin?
@TBIman Try using Wikipedia. It explains plenty.

A pole star or polar star is a star, preferably bright, nearly aligned with the axis of a rotating astronomical body.

Currently, Earth's pole stars are Polaris (Alpha Ursae Minoris), a bright magnitude-2 star aligned approximately with its northern axis that serves as a pre-eminent star in celestial navigation, and a much dimmer magnitude-5.5 star on its southern axis, Polaris Australis (Sigma Octantis).

From around 1700 BC until just after 300 AD, Kochab (Beta Ursae Minoris) and Pherkad (Gamma Ursae Minoris) were twin northern pole stars, though neither was as close to the pole as Polaris is now.

Are you intoxicated?

@TBIman If the Earth is flat how do you explain sunrise and sunset? And why is the Earth the only flat planet in the solar system?
redredred · M
@TBIman I seriously hope that you truly believe this. I’ve always been curious about who the stupidest person on earth is and now you’ve shown us. Please don’t drive a car or operate heavy machinery.
Why exactly do you trust your brain when you admit it's damaged? You ever think that maybe you are wrong. And even if you are right why does it matter. Why do you insist on proselytizing as if you must convert others. Just persist in your belief if you want and leave other realities alone.

Have a guess what you see when you go south of the equator and look up at the night sky. EXACTLY the same thing but with different stars!

Nope, it is completely possible and actually occurs.
alongalone · M
Yes if this world is round I'll eat my Trump doll !
TBIman · 41-45, M
@alongalone Right on.
Nelisme · 22-25, F
And the world is flat
TBIman · 41-45, M
@Nelisme Yup. More or less. It most definitely [u]not[/u] spinning, nor is it a ball. You should look into the flat and motionless Earth.

It’s fake, CGI what else could it be ?

"What does that tell you?"

We never said it was not a disc.
