Critical Science Failure

Anyone else think Super Sport had a kid?

Quote# 77519

Gravity is a theory, not a proven fact.

The effects of gravity can be explained by other theories. An example would be the acceleration theory which asserts the earth is actually moving 'upward' at a constant rate of 1g (9.8m/sec^2). This produces the same effect as "gravity".

See there are different theories for the same phenomena - and none are facts, they are just theories.

Cass,

Jump off a cliff. Really, please do. I want to test your ability to ignore gravity. Oh, and seeing as the planet would have to be expanding at the rate you mentioned, why is it not blown up and popped?

(See, people have gone around the planet, and satellites circle it all the time. The Rising Fancy has been proven false by the simple fact that the Earth is not flat.

Reading this guy's stuff lowers IQ. Not mine or anyone else's, just IQ in general.

No the flat earth theory ios more wacked out than the evolution fairytale forum

right and the people on the bottom of the world get left behind as the world rises upward. Seems you haven't conquered that fear of logic and facts yet

gravity is an easily demonstrated fact, not so much a theory.

if earth accelerates toward the north pole the aussies, new zealanders and south africans will al fall off. That does not happen so you are probably wrong.

How long till earth reaches light speed at 1 G acceleration ?

That doesn't make it wrong. In fact, that has nothing to do with religion. I believe science and religion can coexist, since both are a part of my life. Maybe some people would want to deny evolution, but... why gravity?

Maybe he'll just float the fuck away.

If that was true, shouldn't a bunch of stuff be flying off one side of the earth?

No, they're facts.

So how fast is earth moving now, if it has been constantly accelerating at 1g?

How can the surface of a spherical object rise? If it could, then how the fuck can satellites orbit the Earth without crashing down?

11/24/2012 8:20:58 PM



So...the Earth is flat then?

You don't know what "theory" means, do you?

I literally stared at this for a solid minute in disbelief.

Can I knock you off a cliff and see what happens? I want to test that theory.

You might as well just say...

Also, the earth is flat and pigs can fly!

I... just...

WHAT?!

Kind of reminds me of how in general relativity, gravity's considered a fictitious force, indistinguishable from 'normal' acceleration. ^^;;

Okay, Cassiterides can shoot eye beams and ignore gravity.

I think Cassiterides is from Krypton.

Gravity is just a theory, but my being telekinetic is a proven fact. Who wants me to crush their skull with my mind first?

-for-brains isn't afraid, because his skull is made of lead and he doubts I can crush metal. If I fail, he has to jump off a bridge to disprove gravity.

What about people on the Northern/Southern hemispheres? Do they go flying off of the earth into space with hilariously high pitched "God help me, I shouldn't have bought into gravity! It was a foolish thing for me to do in a moment of weakness!"

Flat Earth much?
