Jfl if don’t think that’s a valid reason then you don’t understand the significance.Salludon said:“Um yeah we also have scientific studies supporting flat Earth but they are censored by the big bad tech companies”
Actually one of the big things that made me take flat earth seriously was the videos of pilots, architects, and bridge builders saying first hand how the earth was flat. I would find those for you, but the big bad tech companies censor flat earth. I’m sure you understand.Salludon said:Interesting. And at the same time it doesn’t seem extremely unlikely to you that all governments, space agencies, geologist, physicists, astronomers, pilots, navigators who use spherical Earth to get around, everyone who works in communications technology, architects (since they have to keep in view the curvature of the Earth while making bridges) are all involved in this globe Earth lie.
I just mentioned 7. And by came true, I mean they censor it in one direction, but anybody who looks into these issues (which are nowhere near as complex as flat earth), can see that the reality is the opposite of what they’re censoring. A more recent extreme example of something that actually came true in the real world after they were censoring it, were covid conspiracy theorists who were predicting mandatory vaccine passports and more lockdowns, saying people wouldn’t be able to participate in society without their vaccine passports. I’ve seen people saying this first hand since April 2020, and one by one I’ve seen them be banned for misinformation. And then 16 months later, France, Canada, and some US states have vaccine passports. Austria has announced mandatory vaccination for everyone from February.Salludon said:Name those 20 topics which they censored and which came out to be true.
They have money for whatever they want. Jfl if you think the US just went to the moon and decided they discovered all there is to know, and it would be a waste of money to go there again or stay there. The government is obsessed with science. They have research in things we can’t even imagine.Salludon said:You might think that as technology improves space travel becomes cheaper and i suppose it does a little bit, but as nowhere near the same rate as lets say... electronics.
The amount of exotic metals and crazy materials required for space vessels is crazy. That stuff doesn’t get cheaper over time, if anything it gets more expensive.
Even when it comes to cheaper things associated with space travel, standards must be kept higher than pretty much any other project on Earth. One bad O-ring and its all over... You can bet after all the testing and safety that goes into an O-ring NASA uses now, it effectively costs probably 10 or 100x more than the O-rings in your car. Now imagine that attention to detail is applied to EVERY SINGLE THING in the fucking spaceship.
If you had a background in science you wouldn’t be a flat earther.
“Most people understood going to the moon as a great adventure. And how many times are they going to pay for it when the plot’s the same every time?” - James Burke, Connections.
NASA’s budget is currently about 0.5% of the federal budget. During the height of the Apollo program that figure was about 5%. You guys make NASA as some evil, rich manipulative agency that is running the world from the shadows but in reality they are begging for funding since they can’t do what they wanna do due to funding constraints.
Each Apollo landing (not mission, landing) cost $20B. To put that into perspective, that’s more than NASA’s entire budget this year alone. NASA’s budget pales in comparison to many other things the government spends money on.
To go to the moon today, the cost can’t be higher than 280 billion since that’s what it cost in 1969. I think even with a very slow rate of improvement, the same technology shouldn’t cost more than 140 billion. A 50% reduction over 50 years is extremely reasonable. It doesn’t matter what NASA’s budget is, that’s determined by the priorities of the government. And the government just GAVE AWAY 2 trillion. Look at this chart which shows the amount of money in circulation going from 4 trillion in 2020 to 20 trillion
I don’t have a background in science, but I do understand the economy. Watch over the next year, when the government signs more stimulus bills worth trillions of dollars. The amount of money they give away each year will grow exponentially over the next few years. When you see these trillion dollars being created out of nothing (printed into existence), question whether it might be worth using 10% of one of those budgets to go back to the moon and end the flat earth once and for all, and of course also for science and the advancement of the human race or whatever.
