Comment 1. Prove it's a globe; 2. Prove it's warming (Score 1) 189

That's my answer to "global warming".

See "Zetetic Astronomy", which contains a number of proofs that it's not a globe.

"They"[1] have their work cut out for them, but of course, they placed one in the first classroom we were ever in, thus indoctrinating us before our critical thinking skills kicked in.

Okay -- but it's still, now, less than "6 million" due to simple math (or, are you arguing that the entire reduction was solely from "non-Jewish deaths"? That'd be a new one to me). They tried to show 6 million died during WWI as well. They have a prophecy in their Talmud saying Israel won't fully be restored to the Jews until 6 million of them die in a fire -- which is why they so needed those delousing showers to be killing ovens. They want to jump the gun on their own prophecy! It's no wonder there are so many anecdotes about them being greedy.

The logic behind my words: that AC post has an IP address associated with it in Slashdot's database. If "jcr" decides to sue, his attorney will be able to obtain that IP address. From the IP address they can determine the ISP, and can then legally obtain the customer who had the IP address on 2015-08-29 17:39.

I agree the AC's words are worth little and are dishonest. I disagree that interacting with fools is a useless endeavor, in other words, I won't ignore ACs merely because they refuse to identify themselves. There is no true anonymity, anyway, as I described above.

Again, the comparison to the Bible is apt. Do you think that "context is important" with respect to the Bible, and that the government should enforce its sale only if it includes said government-approved contextually-added comments? (Analogies are important, even if this one isn't car-related.)

The swastika is not a "Nazi symbol" any more than a pyramid or eye is a "US symbol". It is one of many similar symbols used in religions throughout the world. In India, for instance (a coworker from there informed me), they use it both "forwards" and "backwards", e.g. "SS" and "ZZ", as power symbols.

It's amusing that "Mein Kampf" is legal to be sold only if it contains revisionist remarks! That'd be like the US government making the Bible illegal to sell, if it didn't contain the US government's "explanatory remarks" -- laughable and ridiculous. Definitely not amusing for those forced to live under such restrictions, though.

can't talk about it?

The number of deaths on the plaques at the camps have been dropping, one fell by 2.5 million (IIRC it went from 4 million to 1.5 million).

So, 6 million minus 2.5 million is only 3.5 million. Yet the Tribe keeps saying "6 million died!" -- as Mark Knopfler said in "Industrial Disease", "Two men say they're Jesus; one of them must be wrong."

If it's a crime to make it less of a tragedy, are they prosecuting those who changed the plaque?

The "gas chambers" were woefully unsealed, and would have killed the guards standing outside if they had been used. The chimneys were added after the war, to make it look more dangerous. In reality, they were merely showers, in which they deloused people -- typhus was what killed most of those who died.

I'm fortunate not to have ridiculous laws restricting my ability to question and understand my present and past.

Very few members of the Tribe are descendants of Shem, so it's illogical to call those who point out their crimes "anti-Semite".

Comment Re:Jim Stone reports Hawking died years ago (Score 1) 168

"Skilled in the art" -- thank you sir! I don't think that myself, I just receive inputs from disparate sources and attempt to put them together into something coherent and usable. Nobody has survived as long as Hawking has, with the disease that he has. So, as they say, "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." From wikipedia and wikipedia:

The diagnosis of motor neurone disease came when Hawking was 21, in 1963. At the time, doctors gave him a life expectancy of two years.[38][39]

The average survival from onset to death is three to four years.[8] About 10% survive longer than 10 years.[4]

The evidence that Hawking is still alive is lacking, just as the evidence that the earth is a globe is lacking. And, apparently, intentionally ridiculous (the "SEX" in the clouds in the newest photo from a month ago; the perm sported on the space station (how did she spray, without everyone else coughing it up?); the bubbles seen rising in the Chinese "space walk" video; the "thunk" that can be heard as an Apollo astronaut tosses something and it hits the (completely turned off) lander, so the sound was picked up through the suit's microphone ... in vacuum ...; and many more instances of their intentionally showing us the fakery, not to mention The Shining).

While I used to find your signature amusing, I now understand that they (politicians) only act as imbeciles, while they rape the country and its resources. Look at Hillary's behavior, selling 18,000 documents to foreign powers, a true Bolshevik communist, and now all the media distractions keeping that story from the surface (the fake shooting in VA, "Cecil the lion", etc).

It's not funny, and it's not a troll. It's Informative, but since there was a globe in the first classroom you ever entered, you've been programmed to dismiss this knowledge.

I sincerely apologize for the cognitive dissonance. It took me a bit to get through as well.

I realized I didn't answer your question. We can see things in the distance that should be obscured, if the curvature is accurate.

Thus, this tells me that the curvature equations are wrong. Occam's Razor thus tells me that through simple experimentation (as opposed to "trusting experts") I can see for myself that water is flat and level. Once I know that fact, I can deduce that people who promote the global Earth theory are lying, plain and simple, whether they know it or not. (Many of us are their "useful idiots"; until 2 months ago, I would have responded as you did as well.) It's possible that it's still curved, just it's much larger than they think, which would be the reason we can see so far -- but even that is still speculation, as through observation I can prove water to be level, but I can't prove it to curve, upwards or downwards.

My investigation proceeded from there. Antarctica is really bizarre. Flights don't go over it either, although on my globe, a string placed from southern South America to southern Australia shows that it would be the shortest distance, if the globe model were correct. But instead, they make stops in northern latitudes on their way. This makes sense on a flat Earth map, as the shortest distance from southern South America to southern Australia actually goes over the center of the map (the "North pole").

I believe you when you say you worked on a rocket. But, and this is a serious question: did you ride the rocket? Or did you only receive images on a screen? (Similarly, have you watched the 1977 movie Capricorn One, about faking a mission to Mars?)

Antarctica is the clincher, for me. Admiral Byrd reported in the late 50s that there were a ton of resources there -- coal, oil, uranium, in vast expanses of mountain ranges.

So, why was the Antarctica Treaty then signed a few years later, barring any non-military expeditions? And at the same time, the US and Russian began throwing nuclear bombs into the sky -- to test the strength of the firmament?

You would think, in the intervening 60 years, that Shell, Exxon, BP, et al would have rigs down there, pumping resources out in order to enrich themselves.

That they're not there, is telling.

Whenever something is "classified", one can know that a conspiracy is happening. The definition of conspiracy is two or more people acting, with one or more people not knowing. Surprise parties, and the mafia, are evidence of conspiracies. (They don't always have to be negative, e.g., surprise party.)

I don't have all the answers, but I am learning about the proper shape of the world and my place in it.

The recent Red Bull dive, from 120,000 feet, briefly showed a flat horizon in the quick image from inside the capsule. Then all the images from outside the capsule were with GoPro cameras with wide angle lenses; the horizon is sometimes concave, sometimes flat, and sometimes convex, so can't be used to determine the shape (unless run through a filter which fixed the wide angle).

The horizon always rises to eye (or camera) level, even from that brief shot inside the Red Bull capsule. If the Earth were a globe, one should need to look down at the Earth as one rises.

One can see Chicago from 50 miles across Lake Michigan. At 50 miles, based on the astronomers' calculations for the curvature, it should be 50 * 50 * 8 inches below the horizon, or 20,000 inches, which is 1,666 feet (the Mason astronomers love to put 666 in their calculations [1]), and the tallest building in Chicago is the Sears Tower, rising 1,451 feet, so even that building shouldn't be visible. But the entire skyline was, and was not hazy/wavy like a mirage would have been (that weatherman couldn't keep a straight face, he knew he was fibbing).

[1] -- The tilt of the Earth is 23.4 degrees, they said. Sounds innocuous, yes, until one subtracts the angle from 90 degrees -- then, one gets 66.6 degrees.

Comment Jim Stone reports Hawking died years ago (Score 1) 168

Jim Stone, freelance journalist, points out that Stephen Hawking died years ago, "on schedule" (e.g., from the disease that he had). (search for "Hawking").

Which raises the question, why are they perpetuating him? His voice has been used in many mainstream media projects in the past few years -- a Pink Floyd song, a Big Bang episode, some other song more recently, The Simpsons, etc. MSM is being used to perpetuate the lie, just as they're being used to perpetuate the lie that the Earth is a globe (well, now it's a pear, Neil DeGrass Tyson says, because we've figured out that there's more land in the south, which makes sense if you look at the UN flag, which is a map of the flat Earth -- so they keep changing what "science" says to fit their narrative, but how the heck did NASA get pictures of a round Earth!??! Especially one with "SEX" in the clouds, the recent photoshop disaster).
