NR: Can you see god?
R: No.
NR:That means he doesn't exist.
R: Can you see your brain?
Taq: Yes, and in fact I can show you your own brain. It might get a little messy and you may not enjoy the experiment, but I can totally show you your own brain, using simple tools laying around the house.

Heh.


Problem solved!

RE: Flat Earth Society
My husband has spent some time on the Flat-Earth society forum. Unfortunately they really do genuinely believe that the earth is flat. They will adamantly claim that the only evidence that you can rely upon is what you see with your own eyes.

My husband has not yet managed to get them to explain how the rotation of the stars is different depending on where you are on the Earth and completely inconsistent with the idea of a flat Earth. They really do not know how to answer that.

I find the site too depressing to ever visit.

We can see the shadow of the earth on the moon. We have astronauts in the ISS who can see and photograph the curvature of the earth right now. Hell, you can probably find a website with a live cam of their view. Anyone anywhere can send a small camera up into low orbit with a helium balloon and photograph the curvature of the earth for themselves; how to do it is on the net and on YouTube as well. How stupid do these people really have to be?

Look for a ship on the far horizon, you will only see the sails or the superstructure...that's how I demonstrated to my then young nephews that the earth was curved and thus round....you know, only using senses...Facepalm

Just had a look round on there... Initially I was encouraged by the amount of rational voices on there, but soon discovered the scale of the idiocy.

One member has a .gif type banner signature...

It says...

"Pope Innocent III, leader of the Catholic Church in England believed the Earth was flat... While Adolf Hitler, genocidal Nazi leader who ordered the deaths of millions, believed it was round... Who would you rather believe?"

I've seen some pathetic arguments in my time... Looks like we have a new champion.

RE: Flat Earth Society
Hundreds of humans have seen the earth is a sphere.
Also, why is the earth flat and the moon not?
