DISINFO: FLAT EARTH

There is a new disinfo theory going around lately that the Earth is Flat. Yes, you heard that right, it’s 2017 and there are people claiming that the Earth is not spherical but lies on a flat plane. Can people truly be this foolish or is this some kind of CIA Psyop to discredit the Truth Movement?

Before we get into debunking Flerf claims, I first want to illustrate some simple facts we know about Earth using science and calculations.

Earth is appr. 4.5 Billion years old.
Circumference of Earth: 24,901 Miles/ 40,075 Kms.
Radius of Earth: 3,959 Miles/ 6371 Kms.
Distance of Earth to the Sun: 92.9 Million miles/ 149.6 million Kms.
Time it takes Earth to rotate around the sun: 365.3 days.
The Earth spins on its own axis every 23 hours 56 minutes at 1040 mph, 1675 km/h or 465 meters per second.
The Earth orbits around the sun at a speed of 67,000 mph / 108,000 km/h and travels 940 million kms during a single orbit.
70% of Earth’s surface is covered by water.
Nitrogen makes up 78% of the atmosphere, while oxygen makes up 21%. 1% Argon and Carbon Dioxide.
Gravity: 9.766 m/s2

FLAT EARTH MAP MODEL

To give you a perspective of what Flat Earthers believe, here is a map of a Flat World. The white circle around the globe is a magical impenetrable Ice wall that no one can take me to because it does not exist. If you didn’t notice, the Flat Earth map looks identical to the UN (United Nations) logo.

CLAIM 2: “Planes do not adjust for Curvature.”

“Planes should have to dip their noses every 5 minutes to equate for earth curvature, but they don’t. ”

Flat Earth Proof 2 – Pilot Principles
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03P-WQ12Nho

REBUTTAL:

This is not technically true because a plane is not flying a straight line so to speak. It’s constantly maintaining adjustments to make sure it stays at cruising altitude. Gravity also plays a part as the plane is traveling in the same atmosphere. A constant altitude must be kept which means a fixed distance to the earth’s center of gravity.

Does a jet aircraft need to constantly adjust nose down to follow the curvature of the earth?

Flat Earth Proof 3 – Land Ho! (Light House, Sky Lines)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWLOT3Tqi-Q&

REBUTTAL:

For every mile, the curvature drops 8 inches from where you started if you drew a tangent line. It’s not squared.

Visual Line of Sight Calculations dependent on Earth’s Curvature
http://www.davidsenesac.com/Information/line_of_sight.html

“The Earth has a radius of approximately 3965 miles. Using the Pythagorean theorem, that calculates to an average curvature of 7.98 inches per mile or approximately 8 inches per mile. The distance to the horizon in miles from height of an observer is approximately equal to 1.23 times the square root of the height in feet.”

The Distance To the Sun
http://embracetheball.blogspot.ca/2016/02/the-distance-to-sun.html
———-

Temperature does not equate with the distance the Earth is to the sun. It has to do with the tilt of the axis. That is why when it’s winter time in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s summer time in the Southern Hemisphere! It’s because of 23.5 degree tilt of the Earth’s axis in orbit. This is why we have seasons. The images below explain it clearly.

“Earth has seasons because our planet’s axis of rotation is tilted at an angle of 23.5 degrees relative to our orbital plane – the plane of Earth’s orbit around the sun. The tilt in the axis of the Earth is called its obliquity by scientists.

FLIGHT DATA RADAR (SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE)

CLAIM 6 AND 7: “We don’t see any flights on radar from the Southern Hemisphere.”

“No flights fly over the Antarctica.”

“Antarctica is a military zone”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzRnFmgOrf8

Flat Earth Proof 7 – Down South
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YX61yQnylgI

REBUTTAL:

As for lack of flights in the Southern Hemisphere, you have to figure in that there is very little land in the Southern Hemisphere compared to the North with a lot less people. Not to mention that the Countries (excluding Australia) in the South are some of the poorest countries in the World to live in. To put it into better perspective the USA has over 15,000 airports, whereas Argentina has only 1,100 and South Africa has less than 600. This is why there is less traffic in the South.

Total Number of Airports by Country
http://chartsbin.com/view/1395

But the main reason why we don’t see flights over the Ocean in the Southern Hemisphere is because there are no radar sites and thus no way to track flights. It would require the aircraft to transmit their location via radio to a ground station, not through radar.

Shipping regularly sails due south, going around the “bottom” of the globe, and comes north again, without making a 180 degree turn. This is impossible on a flat earth, if you look at the map. You can’t be pointing due south and then be pointing north again without making a turn, however gradual, of 180 degrees. Explain.

“The Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) as represented by the Mariano Global Surface Velocity Analysis (MGSVA). The ACC is poorly represented here because of the lack of data. The MGSVA is based on ship-drift estimates of sea surface velocities that are mostly available along major shipping routes.”

Why don’t flight tracking websites show airplanes over oceans in the southern hemisphere?
https://www.quora.com/Why-dont-flight-tracking-websites-show-airplanes-over-oceans-in-the-southern-hemisphere

(Tom Farrier, Retired US Air Force command pilot; Current aviation safety contractor for the government)
“That’s because flight tracking sites such as FlightAware and FlightRadar24 are displaying radar data via ADS-B receivers. Over vast expanses of ocean—North & South Atlantic and Pacific— there are no radar sites and thus no way to track flights. It would require the aircraft to transmit their location via radio to a ground station, which can be done since they have long range communication or even satellite communications.

GPS, of course, works by reception only; the GPS receiver in the plane receives signals from GPS satellites and calculates its position for display to the pilot. The GPS satellites are clueless about plane’s location. That information would have to be transmitted back through a radio communications system, and usually that information just goes back to the airline headquarters, not ATC.”

As for the Antarctica “military zone”, that claim is also false. There is no military zone. Quite the opposite.

Antarctic Treaty
https://www.state.gov/t/avc/trty/193967.htm

“Based on the premise that to exclude armaments is easier than to eliminate or control them once they have been introduced, the treaty served as a model, in its approach and even in its specific provisions, for later “non-armament” treaties — the treaties that excluded nuclear weapons from outer space, from Latin America, and from the seabed.”

U.S. Department of State- Open Skies Treaty http://www.state.gov/t/avc/trty/102337.htm

“…is one of the most wide-ranging international efforts to date promoting openness and transparency of military forces and activities. ”

“establishes freedom of scientific investigation and bans military activity on that continent. ” “in the interests of all mankind that Antarctica shall continue forever to be used exclusively for peaceful purposes and shall not become the scene or object of international discord.”

The treaty, entering into force in 1961 and having 53 parties as of 2016, sets aside Antarctica as a scientific preserve, establishes freedom of scientific investigation and bans military activity on that continent. The treaty was the first arms control agreement established during the Cold War.

POLARIS

“B2. Polaris. Currently, the earth’s axis points more or less directly at Polaris, the pole star in the northern hemisphere. At the north pole, Polaris is directly overhead. When you travel south, Polaris gets lower and lower to the horizon, until finally it disappears. It does not appear at all above the horizon for most southern observers. Explain.

B3. Constellations. Same as for Polaris. The southern hemisphere has different constellations than the northern. On a flat earth, everybody would see the same constellations all the time. Constellations are also upside down in the southern hemisphere. Orion is standing on his head in Australia. The moon and planets, and the sunspots which are visible, are all “upside down” in the southern hemisphere. On a flat earth, they would look the same everywhere.”

How long does it take the Big Dipper to move in the sky? (Intermediate)
http://curious.astro.cornell.edu/about-us/117-the-universe/stars-and-star-clusters/constellations/718-how-long-does-it-take-the-big-dipper-to-move-in-the-sky-intermediate

“In the Northern Hemisphere, all of the stars appear to rotate about a point in the sky that is due north, and at an elevation equal to the latitude at which you’re standing. This also happens to be the point in the sky occupied by the North Star. (The same thing happens in the Southern Hemisphere, but there things rotate about a point in the south.)

This apparent rotation of the sky is actually a result of the fact that the Earth itself is rotating. So the sky does one complete rotation every 24 hours. Of course, you can’t see the stars during the day, but the sky is still “rotating” then nonetheless.”

Let’s take the Big Dipper as an example. For the different times of year, depending on position, the Big Dipper is always visible in the Northern Hemisphere and not always visible in the Southern Hemisphere unless you are north of the 25 degree North Latitude. In contrast, people that live in the South see the “South Cross” and it cannot be seen by anyone North of the 25 degree South Latitude. If the Earth was flat, then everyone would be able to see the Big Dipper and the South Cross at the same time. The fact that we can’t proves the Earth is a sphere.

Here is a diagram to show what the Big Dipper looks like in the sky.

INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION

Not only is the Flat Earth but “Flerffers” also claim that Satellites and the (ISS) Space Station are fake.

ISS Hoax – The International Space Station Does Not Exist!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5e-RnKAN9qY

“The International Space Station, just like everything else brought to us by NASA, is a Freemasonic hoax, a complete fabrication done with special effects, models, pools, zero G planes, and various camera tricks. The following video exposes key points of evidence for the hoax and breaks down exactly how the illusion is created and maintained.”

QUESTION: “Why don’t we see any Satellites/Stars in the ISS Live cam footage?”

ANSWER:

The International Space Station travels at 17,150 mph (27,600 km/h) and orbits the earth once every 92 minutes. In relation, Satellites travel approximately 8,700 mph (14,000 km/h). The ISS orbits 330 km above the Earth and Satellites orbit at 2,000-36,000 km above Earth. Therefore, the Satellites are out of view and stars are fainted out by the light of the Earth, Sun and Moon.
——
“When there is a full moon go outside and see how many stars you can find compared to a night when the moon is not out. You will see the difference. The stars are very faint and get washed out by the bright light of the moon.

The reason why no or very little stars can be seen is because of the Earth. The Earth, when lit by the Sun, is many thousands times brighter than the stars around it. As a result the Earth is so bright that it swamps out most if not all of the stars.

Approximately 500 operational satellites are in low-Earth orbit, 50 are in medium-Earth orbit (at 20,000 km), and the rest are in geostationary orbit (at 36,000 km).[5]”

“The ISS maintains an orbit with an altitude of between 330 and 435 km (205 and 270 mi) by means of reboost manoeuvres using the engines of the Zvezda module or visiting spacecraft. It completes 15.54 orbits per day.[16]”

CLAIM: “Ships being able to lock onto targets 100 miles away proves there’s no horizon curve.”

REBUTTAL:

The Earth’s curvature is considered when launching long range missiles from land or sea.

INS for Guided Missile Systems
http://techdigest.jhuapl.edu/TD/td2804/Bezick.pdf

Pg 2 “Moreover,the desired navigation solution typically is formed relative to a second, *rotating Earth-centered* Earth-fixed (ECEF) coordinate frame, (ie, je, ke), having angular velocity ie, relative to the inertial frame. If the position vector of the missile, r, over the Earth’s surface is desired (latitude, longitude, and altitude), then a model for the ellipsoidal shape of the Earth’s surface must be used.”

Nat Geo Encyclopedia on Coriolis
“Military aircraft and missile-control technology must calculate the *Coriolis effect* for similar reasons. The target of an air raid could be missed entirely, and innocent people and civilian structures could be damaged.” http://education.nationalgeographic.com/education/encyclopedia/coriolis-effect/?ar_a=1

From Principles of Guided Missiles and Nuclear Weapons
“The CORIOLIS FORCE must also be compensated for. It is *caused by the earth’s rotation,* and tends to deflect a missile to the right in the northern hemisphere, and to the left in the southern hemisphere.”
“The amount of deviation produced by the *coriolis force* depends on the latitude, length, and direction of the missile flight.”http://archive.hnsa.org/doc/missile/index.htm

“Lucky you, I’m in the navy and operate a program called the Tactical Acquisition Weapons Software and I can confirm, yes curvature is indeed a part of it.”

CLAIM “Gravity is not real.”

“Gravity was not proven, and Isaac Newton and Einstein, all those scientists, are also Freemasons and Satan worshipers,” Patrice said.”
https://mic.com/articles/150833/flat-earth-theories-truthers-youtube#

REBUTTAL:

Gravity is not a conspiracy theory and was discovered in the 1600’s by Sir Isaac Newton.

CLAIM: “Giant Ice wall surrounding Flat Earth that holds in the water.”

THE FLAT EARTH ICE WALL EXPLAINED – WITH PHOTOS
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgit6h60IUw

REBUTTAL:

There is no photographic evidence that this “ice wall” even exists. If so, Flerfers would have shown these images and noted them on a map so that people could check it out for themselves.

THE MOON

Claim: “Moon light is cooler than sunlight, therefore the Earth is flat.”

REBUTTAL:

Flat Earth theorist claim because we can see the moon and the sun together in the sky on some days, then the Earth must be Flat. Let me explain further.

Why Do We See the Moon in Daylight?
http://www.space.com/7267-moon-daylight.html

You do realize that the sun reflects off the moon. This is why it lights up. There are also different lunar phases, which is why we see a 1/4 moon, 1/2 moon or a full moon on different times of the month. Sometimes we don’t even see the moon because it’s directly in front of the sun and the earth. This is evidence of a Spherical Earth.

The phases of the Moon
http://www.suntrek.org/earth-beyond/our-moon/phases-of-the-moon.shtml

“The appearance of the Moon in the sky changes from day to day. These changing shapes are called the Moon’s phases.”

Synchronous Rotation of the Moon
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZIB_leg75Q

“The moon orbits the Earth once every 27.322 days. It also takes approximately 27 days for the moon to rotate once on its axis. As a result, the moon does not seem to be spinning but appears to observers from Earth to be keeping almost perfectly still. Scientists call this synchronous rotation.”

Here is a simple demonstration using a golf ball:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRxlTKr0FU4

Also note that people living in the Northern Hemisphere will see the Moon differently than people living in the Southern Hemisphere. People living in the south will see the moon’s face upside down, so to speak.

Not to mention if the Earth was flat, we would always see the moon and the sun at the same time 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

NASA AND MARS

CLAIM: “No real pictures of earth. Admitted by NASA itself as composites.”

Why Are There No Real Photos of The Complete Earth?
Why Are There No Real Photos of The Complete Earth? = NASA has never been into space far enough from the Earth to get the whole planet in the frame

Flat Earthers even think NASA space stations, satellites orbiting the Earth and photo’s of Mars are all fake.

REBUTTAL

Flat Earthers claim that NASA has been covering up Flat Earth since their creation in the late 50’s and that all their images, satellites, Space Stations are all fake. But let me say that Earth has been here for 4.5 Billion years and Aristotle discovered a Spherical Earth in 300 B.C. But if you want to believe that NASA has been covering it up for the last 60 years, then I can’t help you.

CIRCUMNAVIGATE THE EARTH

There have been many pilots that have circumnavigated the Earth in a plane. They all started in one spot, flew one direction and ended up where they started. How is this possible on a Flat Earth model?

Flying Around the World in a Solar Powered Plane
https://www.theatlantic.com/photo/2016/07/flying-around-the-world-in-a-solar-powered-plane/493085/

“The journey took a very long time—505 days to fly 26,000 miles (42,000 km) at an average speed of about 45 mph (70 kph)—but pilots Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg successfully landed the Solar Impulse 2 aircraft in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday, after flying around the world using only the power of the Sun.”

Wiley Post flies solo around the world
http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/wiley-post-flies-solo-around-the-world

“American aviator Wiley Post returns to Floyd Bennett Field in New York, having flown solo around the world in 7 days, 18 hours, and 49 minutes. He was the first aviator to accomplish the feat.

Post, instantly recognizable by the patch he wore over one eye, began the journey on July 15, flying nonstop to Berlin. After a brief rest, he flew on to the Soviet Union, where he made several stops before returning to North America, with stops in Alaska, Canada, and finally a triumphant landing at his starting point in New York.”

“The Rutan Model 76 Voyager was the first aircraft to fly around the world without stopping or refueling. It was piloted by Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager. The flight took off from Edwards Air Force Base’s 15,000 foot (4,600 m) runway in the Mojave Desert on December 14, 1986, and ended 9 days, 3 minutes and 44 seconds later on December 23, setting a flight endurance record. The aircraft flew westerly 26,366 statute miles (42,432 km; the FAI accredited distance is 40,212 km)[1] at an average altitude of 11,000 feet (3,350 m).”

“Lucky Lady II is a United States Air Force Boeing B-50 Superfortress that became the first airplane to circle the world nonstop. Its 1949 journey, assisted by in-flight refueling, lasted 94 hours and 1 minute. The plane later suffered an accident, and today only the fuselage is preserved. (Lucky Lady II was also the name of a B-17 of the 338th Bomb Squadron, which was shot down near Tielrode, Belgium (Temse), on 30 July 1943.)”

This Plane Will Take You Anywhere In The World In 4 Hours
http://www.iflscience.com/technology/plane-will-take-you-anywhere-world-4-hours/

“The new system that the firm is working on is called SABRE, which is a jet engine that also doubles as a rocket engine. In a commercial plane, this could whizz 300 passengers around the world at Mach 5, or five times the speed of sound, “pretty easily,” according to chief engineer Alan Bond. The ambitious spaceplane the company is working on, “SKYLON,” could propel the craft into orbit at 25 times the speed of sound.”

So, apparently Shaquille O’Neal is a flat-Earther, too
https://ca.sports.yahoo.com/news/so-apparently-shaquille-oneal-is-a-flat-earther-too-035813782.html

““It’s true. The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat. Yes, it is. Listen, there are three ways to manipulate the mind — what you read, what you see and what you hear. In school, first thing they teach us is, ‘Oh, Columbus discovered America,’ but when he got there, there were some fair-skinned people with the long hair smoking on the peace pipes. So, what does that tell you? Columbus didn’t discover America. So, listen, I drive from coast to coast, and this s*** is flat to me. I’m just saying. I drive from Florida to California all the time, and it’s flat to me. I do not go up and down at a 360-degree angle, and all that stuff about gravity, have you looked outside Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings? You mean to tell me that China is under us? China is under us? It’s not. The world is flat.””

QUESTIONS FOR FLAT EARTHERS

1) If the Earth is flat, then where is the edge of the Earth? Take me there.
2) If the Earth is Flat, explain why we see a Geometrical Sunrise and sunset?

4) If the Earth is flat, does that mean the Moon is flat too?
5) If the Earth is flat, then why do boats and ships appear beneath the sea from miles away?
6) If the Earth is flat, then why do all the images from Space show a spherical Earth?
7) If the Earth is flat, how would you fly in a plane from New Zealand to Chile?

POLL

POLL: The Earth is flat. True or False?

As you may be aware, there have been many attempts to lump 9/11 Truth in with fringe conspiracy theories, such as government cover-up of UFOs/ETs, the Moon landing hoax, Big Foot, Birthers, and most recently the flat Earth theory.
So as a research project, I am doing a poll to see how many members in the 9/11 Truth Movement group believe in the flat Earth theory.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/2204686781/10153806648306782/
—————

CONCLUSION: DISINFO

The Flat Earth theory is a hoax theory that lacks scientific argument. There is more than enough proof to prove that Earth is indeed spherical. The Flat Earth campaign looks to be a Govt psyop being used to trick people and to lump them into a the “conspiracy theorist” strawman. Galileo, Aristotle and Sir Isaac Newton are rolling in their graves right about now.

The Flat Earth theory is a Psyop created by TPTB in order to discredit legitimate movements!

  1. The invisible kraken: Evidence that the earth is not flat
    http://mathisencorollary.blogspot.ca/2015/11/the-invisible-kraken-evidence-that.html

    “I’m actually a little suspicious of the motives of those who insist that this point is not yet proven, and insist on forcing the discussion onto this subject all the time. I actually wonder how many of those who argue for a flat earth truly believe such an argument, and how many might be dragging the debate into that quicksand for other reasons, whether just for the sheer fun of being contrary and picking arguments, or for some other motive.

    However, assuming that some people may actually entertain honest doubts about this matter, I will list just a few of what I believe to be many reasons to believe that the earth is a globe that rotates on its axis and orbits the sun (and has an axial tilt which precesses).”
