2014 Highlander LE
I watched the video, and I know what I saw and I saw the curvature of the earth in that video.
If that guy wanted more accurate photos, he would not be looking mountain ranges in southern Colorado, and would instead be looking at photos from a plane (not a plain) on a very clear day (no clouds or thunderstorms) over the ocean.
I guess this thread started out claiming that the Apollo project did not land on the moon, but am I correct in saying that you also believe the earth is flat, or something like that?
To answer your Q:I did not cherry pick anything. There weren't any really good pics in the video of a flat horizon with clear weather. I used to live in Colorado, and spent time in southern Colorado where those pics were taken, and you can't expect to see an accurate horizon line with so many mountains and where the plateaus are anywhere from 4,000 to 6,000 feet above sea level, and mountains rise up another 8,000 feet above that. You need to look at pics over the ocean in clear weather at the horizon and viewing at 40,000 feet or more altitude with a wide enough angle of view.
Knowing that the earth is spherical (but not a perfect sphere) is not a religious belief, it is a fact. Someone who apparently believes the earth is flat, and then calls me immature, is the height of ludicrousness.
But you never answered my question. Do you in fact believe the earth is flat, or just a lot larger circumference than about 25K miles, or what is it that you believe?
I dont have a belief. I just know that the earth is not 24,901 around.
This is why I said you cannot take one example, which I called cheery picking. He has at least 20 videos. And that is JUST him. Over the water you can also prove this to yourself with a good zoom lens. On a CLEAR day with calm waters or on a large lake. This is why good science is done over the coarse of time over different conditions. Not a frame in a video to draw a conclusion from. You can take an object in view that is going away from you, and you can see the object disappear from the bottom up. Use your zoom lens and the object is back into full view. You should have an idea of the distance the object is. By doing the basic math of 8" drop per distance squared, you can calc the expected amount of the curve covering a object. But this doesn't happen on calm waters, or ice, etc.
I also know that our understanding of things is narrated and distributed with some major flaws to shape society and to secure the ruling entities.
NASA footage is often faked. We clearly have prrof of this in video footage. The zero grav in ISS to Apollo 11 photo and missions, on the moon. These are fake.
Once you see past your programmed belief, and accept the evidence by weighing conflicting information, and NOT defaulting to authority and just the evidence, you see that these programs are for thought and population control...WHat ever ideas you want to conjure up, it doesn't matter. Just as the Colosseum was many years ago. There are rulers, and they will do what is needed to rule and collect on its population. Or what ever you want to think.
But most people here (as over 65% of EU other universities dont even believe in the moon landings) are well programmed from news and "scientific" data reported by news and many sources. If you listen to lectures of physicists and historians, you can understand these. Our science today is based on theoretical numbers and models that are far from reality. They are designed to fit a commercial service and that is it. This is not just US, but globally. You show what is possible by the tech and the tax your pay, and all the years you devote to learning the "science" and you are now a arms developing tool for the powers that be....
With the idea that you are creating "out of this world" technological advancements...This in reality is a fantasy.
So now that Augmented Reality is polished, with 3D and VR, While having so many errors in the NASA footage with their live multi camera screw ups. (i can link you up to a few, as I have), New missions to moon like in 2023, will be very compelling, as the graphics of today's tech is leaps and bounds better than the tech of the 70's. But it doesnt matter much...
Most people are already programmed to believe the news as it is reported even if it looks bad or unbelievable..... Look at all the errors in news and the overall agendas it pushes towards...still very effective. Anything contrary is ridiculed and sidelined or discredited, or silenced. So once you see through this, and untangle your brain, it is only then that this makes any sense and difference.
But there is a wall your mind will hit, and that is the feeling of safety. This is where your cognitive dissonance will intervene, and have you revert back to your belief, and the confirmation you have to support that belief.
If you think of conspiracy theories, you can put some perspective into it. There are a few that were and today they are a proven and accepted reality. Gulf of Tonkin is one example. The US Liberty ship is another example. There are a number of others that we look too many years later to make a difference. But the voices were there at that time, yet silenced. Now we know and it is too late.
I type this to the thread, not to you Mark888, because you are so far on the protective side of your version of "reality", this info just bounces off your head as if its a magnetic opposite polarity.
But, perhaps there is a time you can see through the cracks. If you didn't see it on 2001 0911, then you are not going to see much at all. That was the most obvious to anyone who can think for themselves, and has a understanding of reality and materials, basic physics, and miracles that cannot happen. Then the counter evidence omitted to fit a belief.
I say this, as you showed your thought process by omitting any info, and grabbing a sliver of a video clip, yet ignoring the body of work. This is not a rational way to conclude something you see. Even in that small video he explains why you see what you see, but this is ignored to claim your belief. Regardless of its implications on anything else.
