Patent for a Solar Simulator. Eat your hearts out Flat Earthers.

a reply to: AnonSapien

Do you know the patents office has been used to suppress innovation, there are hundreds of inventions hiding away in the patents office that would greatly benefit the human race but the rich people that run our world will not allow them to be accessed by us.

In Australia a schoolkid invented a matchbox size solar panel that produced the same energy as the huge ones we are forced to buy, it won a tv show beyond 2000 or something like that it was for young inventors.

and tesla’s radiant energy would of powered the earth for free.




Man Leaves Wife And Children Because They Aren’t Flat Earthers

You may agree or disagree, but the theory that the earth may not be round still exist in today’s world. If you say the earth is round, and you happen to get into a debate with someone who claims the earth is flat, you will soon realize that the once calm discussion quickly becomes a heated argument. Flat earthers will say things like, “I am a truther, you need to wake up. Only a pathetic sleeping sheep would believe that the earth is round. I have evidence!” A round earther would say, “You actually believe that the earth is flat? Hello, 400 B.C! I have evidence too! You’re so stupid.” And that’s probably a more calm debate than the things we witness online.

There is such a thing as taking it too far though, recently one man posted to Facebook in a private group about how he left his entire family due to the fact that they just wouldn’t wake up about the possibility of a flat earth. 

“This is my first “Christmas” without my family. After 25 years of marriage, I could not stay married to a woman who refused to seek the truth. She and my kids refuse to look at the Flat Earth Truths that I have shared with them. I encouraged them to research for themselves, but they treat me like I’m crazy. I just couldn’t take it anymore. Is anyone else out there dealing with spending Christmas alone? To me, it’s better than spending it with my family of Globeheads. I’m glad to have a group of online like-minded individuals with whom I can learn from and gain support from. I bet I’m not the only Truth Seeker who is spending Christmas away from family because they can’t see the truth of this world. I hope to hear from some of you today!”

I honestly hope that he, in fact, is the only one stupid enough to have spent Christmas alone. Just because people in your family disagree with your beliefs, does not mean you can just toss them aside like a moldy piece of bread. If this seems too insane to believe, here’s a screenshot so that all of us can drop our jaws at the level of foolishness.    

No matter what sort of position we take on “is the earth round, or flat”, it’s important that we remain close to our families. A few internet friends agreeing with you on Facebook can never replace the love and support that family gives, even when they don’t always agree with you.

Neil deGrasse Tyson: Rise of Flat-Earthers Is Result of Failed Educational System

In a new video on his StarTalk YouTube channel, Neil deGrasse Tyson took on Flat Earthers — those who believe the Earth is flat — and blamed the conspiracy theory’s rise on “free speech” and a “failed educational system.”

“We have video from space of the rotating spherical Earth. The Earth is round,” deGrasse Tyson said in his latest video with comedian Chuck Nice.

In the video, deGrasse Tyson used multiple experiments and examples to prove how people came to know the Earth is round, even before space travel made it possible to observe the Earth from a distance.

As for why a movement of people who believe the Earth is flat is rising, deDrasse Tyson offered two possible contributors.

“For me, the fact that there’s a rise of flat-Earthers is evidence of two things. One, we live in a country that protects free speech. And, two, we live in a country with a failed educational system,” deGrasse Tyson said. “Our system needs to train you not only what to know but how to think about information and knowledge and evidence. If we don’t have that kind of training, you’d run around believing anything.”

Proving the Earth is not Flat

This is the first in a series of videos that show how anyone can prove to themselves that the earth is not flat. It is a spherical spinning ball. In this segment, I discuss how flat earthers are confused about the horizon, and I demonstrate how the horizon perfectly fits the globe earth model, and shows the curve of the earth when you know what to look for. Why don’t the clouds move? They do. At this scale, the clouds you see are REALLY BIG, and move very SLOWLY in comparison to the size of the whole earth. But you can see that the clouds do move in these magnified and stabilized animations made from the same images. https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/2971

In this part, I explain how our view of the stars is perfectly explained by the heliocentric globe model, and how all flat earth models fail to fit what we see. We see different stars in the Northern and Southern hemispheres, and they rotate around two points each night, called the north and south celestial poles, and they rotate in opposite directions.

In this part in the series, I explain how our observations of the moon demonstrate the shape and nature of the spherical earth. Rapper B.o.B. wants to try to prove the earth is flat. Like all flat earthers, he is simply ignorant of many of the facts that easily debunk flat earth claims. He is not “WOKE” to a hidden truth. He is just very confused about science.

These Are Some Of The Most Prominent Pyramids On Earth

A pyramid is a structure whose outer surfaces are triangular and converge to a single point at the top, making the shape roughly a pyramid in the geometric sense. For thousands of years, civilizations across the globe have used this architectural design for tombs, fortresses, and temples.

Compelling studies suggest that many of these pyramids were aligned with astronomical events, such as solstices, eclipses, and even the Earths own hemispheres.

The Mesopotamians built the earliest pyramid structures known as ziggurats (e.g. Tepe Sialk and the Ziggurat of Ur). In ancient times they were painted in gold & bronze, endowing them with a luminous quality. The ziggurats were believed to be dwelling places for the gods, and each city had its own patron deity which ruled over the sea, sky, earth etc.

In Egypt, the pyramids were huge structures built of brick or stone. The sun god Ra, considered the father of all pharaohs, was said to have created himself from a pyramid-shaped mound known as a ‘Benben’ before creating all other gods. They were often coated with white limestone in order to give them a shining appearance (as a reference to the rays of the sun god).

The Nubian pyramids from Sudan served as tombs for the kings and queens of Jebel Barkal and Meroë. These Nubian Pyramids have different characteristics to their Egyptian counterparts, constructed at much steeper angles. These great tombs were still being built in Sudan as late as 300 CE.

Far to the East, there were many flat-topped like pyramids built in China & Korea between 188 BCE and 675 CE. These huge mausoleums were built for the early emperors of China and their relatives. The ancient Chinese believed that when an emperor died, their soul entered the afterlife, so the mausoleums were constructed as heavenly palaces for their life hereafter.

All of the daily comforts of their past life such as servants, attendants, possessions, pets, wives, guardians, concubines, food and drink were to be provided for them in the after life. This was accomplished by burying all of these things with the deceased when they died. It was not uncommon to kill people in order to be buried with their master, but as dynasties evolved clay replicas replaced the real thing.

The Indonesia culture also featured pyramid structures such as Borobudur temple and Prang temple. These step pyramids were based on the native beliefs that mountains and high places are the abode for the spirit of the ancestors.

Across the Pacific Ocean, a number of Mesoamerican cultures also built pyramid-shaped structures. They were typically stepped, with temples on top (similar to the ziggurats of Mesopotamia). These temples were often used as places of human sacrifice. The ‘Pyramid of the Sun’ in Teotihuacán means “the place where men become Gods.” They claim that their pyramids were instruments for transforming the soul after death, just as the Egyptians did.

A recent series of pyramid-like structures were built by the Polynesians known as Pā (sacred hill forts). These stepped structures were carved from hill tops, forming a pyramid-like shape, and were often used as defensive settlements. The Polynesians believed these earth works were endowed with ‘mana’, a spiritual energy that granted them power and authority.

The common theme which links all these pyramid structures is death, authority, and immortality. These temples literally seemed to deify their occupants, who went on to rule from the heavens, their legacy secured and memorialized by the wondrous monuments of the ancients.

An Asteroid the Size of the Statue of Liberty Will Whiz Past Earth Tomorrow. Here’s How to See It

An asteroid the size of the Statue of Liberty will zoom past Earth on Tuesday.

The asteroid, dubbed 2010 WC9, is about the size of a football field and will fly past Earth at about 28,655 miles per hour, according to EarthSky. It will come within 126,419 miles of Earth — the closest it has come to our planet in 300 years — though it is still considered a safe passing distance.

The asteroid is expected to whiz past Earth at 6:05 p.m. E.T. on Tuesday, May 15.

Despite its seemingly large size, the asteroid will not be visible to the naked eye from Earth. For those hoping to catch a glimpse of the asteroid, it will be visible with a telescope for some people.

But even if you don’t have a telescope, you can still see the asteroid Tuesday night thanks to a livestream from Northholt Branch Observatories in London. The observatory will stream it live on Facebook beginning Monday, May 14 at midnight local U.K. time, so viewers can see 2010 WC9 in space before it begins its approach past Earth.

The asteroid was originally discovered in 2010 by The Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona, but was then lost when it “became too faint to see,” according to EarthSky. Astronomers did not have enough information about 2010 WC9’s orbit to keep track of it until it reappeared this month.

It is bigger than the Chelyabinsk meteor, which broke up entering the Earth’s atmosphere five years ago in 2013. The Chelyabinsk meteor was two to three times smaller than this week’s 2010 WCJ, but its force upon entering Earth’s atmosphere still broke windows in multiple Russian cities and hospitalized more than 1,000 people. The crash was “pegged as 30 to 40 times stronger than the atomic bomb the United States dropped on Hiroshima,” according to EarthSky.

Before that, the famous Tunguska meteor broke up over Siberia in 1908 and was thought to be 1,000 times more powerful than the atomic bomb, flattening more than 80 million trees.

A large asteroid will pass by Earth at close range on Tuesday, May 15. Here’s how to see it, even if you don’t have a telescope




These Are The Rare Ancient Maps, Used By Ancient Explorers To Travel The Earth

These are the rare ancient charts used by ancient navigators to explore the Earth, and they are about to be sold in an auction in London and could sell for millions.

Thousands of years ago, explorers used whatever maps they could find to travel to places no one else had been.

Many explorers, including Cristopher Columbus, used rare maps to navigate Earths’ ocean and travel to different continents.

These maps have a mighty history behind them, as many of them were used by some of the most influential explorers from our history books.

Curiously, as noted by the MailOnline, many of these ancient charts are about to go on sale in an auction house in London, UK, and experts warn they could sell for millions, as people will recognize their incredible value.

The auction in London will feature around 400 maps. Among the hundreds of maps is a 1472 ‘T-O’ map, considered the first printed atlas of the planet, displaying how Earth was arranged, according to Christian beliefs.

The map seen here below is one of several ancient charts created by famed geographer and astronomer Claudius Ptolemaeus.

The map was published in an atlas from 1482 and is considered by experts as one of the earliest global maps ever created.

The map is especially known for being the first map to make use of latitude and longitude. According to experts, the origins of this map date back to the known world in the 2nd Century and, according to the MailOnline, it could sell for £80,000 ($110,000). The map shows three sections which are a representation of the world’s oceans and are believed to indicate the belief the Earth was spherical, and not flat.

The ancient chart shows the Mediterranean separating Europe from Africa, and the Red Sea and the River Don separating both from Asia. In addition to offering an extremely detailed map of our planet, the map also features the sons of Noah on Each Continent.

This sensational ancient map was created by Peter Goos in 1666.

An Italian artist called Francesco Berlinghieri helped create the map and providing ‘considerable artistic appeal’ with the addition of the 12 wind-heads surrounding the ancient chart. This map is believed to have played a crucial role in Cristopher Columbus’ accidental ‘discovery of the new world.’

Although it is noteworthy to mention that Columbus was NOT the first explorer to reach to American Continent, and he didn’t have to discover anything, as the continent was long inhabited by different cultures. If anything, Columbus ‘introduced’ America to the rest of the world.

This map depicts the world from an unusual point of different view. We see the planet from the poles. This ancient chart was created by Cornelius De Jode, a cartographer from Antwerp in the 1500’s. Image Credit: Sotheby’s

Speaking about the auction, and the different ancient maps, Cecile Gasseholm, Sotheby’s specialist, told MailOnline:

“Ptolomy made his calculations on the size of the Earth when creating the map with regards to dimensions of the world.”

“The measurements were widely taken as gospel for centuries and into the middle ages. Christopher Columbus, when he set sail in 1492 from the Spanish port of Palos, used these calculations to inform his navigation. To his dismay and later great reward, they turned out to be wildly inaccurate and resulted in the Spanish colonization of the Americas.”

(Fact Check) The Great Pyramid Of Giza Contains Enough Stone To Build Wall Around Earth

That sounds just ludicrous, doesn’t it? But is it crazy?

You’d be surprised by the answer.

The Great Pyramid of Giza hides many secrets. In fact, despite the fact that it was (according to mainstream scholars) built some four thousand years ago, we have still not unraveled all its mysteries.

Thousands of years ago, the Great Pyramid of Giza was erected in modern-day Egypt.

The result? A stunning ancient monument home to many mysteries, yet few answers.

Despite having studied, researched and explored the pyramid for centuries, mainstream scholars have been unable to understand how the builders of the structure managed to erect such a precise monument, thousands of years ago, without the use of modern tools and technologies.

That SIZE! The Great Pyramid of Giza!

Posted by Ancient Code on Tuesday, September 6, 2016

An even greater mystery is how the Pyramid’s builders erected what was long considered as the most accurately aligned structure in existence, facing true north with only 3/60th of a degree of error.

However, not only is this ancient monument one of the most accurately aligned buildings on the surface of the planet, there are countless other details that make it even more stunning.

Image Credit: Shutterstock.

Did you now that, somehow, thousands of years ago, the ancient builders of the Pyramid used more than 2,300,000 stone blocks that weigh from 2 to 50 tons each to build a structure that would stand the test of time?

If that fact did not arouse your curiosity, did you know that the base of the pyramid covers 55,000 m2? And that the outer mantle was composed of 144,000 casing stones, all of them highly polished and flat to an accuracy of 1/100th of an inch, about 100 inches thick and weighing approximately 15 tons each?

Stunning characteristics of a structure built thousands of years ago

However, did you know that the Great Pyramid of Giza contains enough stone to build a wall around the Earth?

Yeah, it’s not fake news, not craziness, and not me trying to write up a cool article, all of my articles are cool. 😛

So yeah after this claim, you’d ask… where’s the proof?

Show me proof.

Ok.

Let’s get the facts straight.

The height of the Great Pyramid is 139 meters. The Great Pyramid has a width of 230m.

Our planet’s circumference is 40,075,000m.

2 feet in meters: 0.6096m

So, the volume of the Pyramid is:

2302 * 139 * (1/3) = 2,451,033 m3 = 2.4 x106 m3

Suppose the width of the wall is X m.

Then, the volume of the wall is: (40,075,000 * 0.6096) * X = 24,429,720 * X m3 ~ 24×106 * X m3

Now since 2.4×106 / 24×106 = 0.1, we have that, for the statement to be true, the width of the wall must be no wider than 10cm or about 0.33 feet. Source

There’s another one, source, Reddit:

The volume of the Pyramid: ~91,227,778 ft3

The circumference of Earth = Length of Wall: 131.48 * 106 ft

The height of the Wall: 2 ft

The volume of Pyramid / (Circumference of Earth * Height of Wall) = Width of Wall

91,227,778 / (131.48*106 * 2) = 0.35 ft = ~10cm

Or:

The radius of the earth: 20.9*106 ft

The radius of the top part of the wall: 20.9*106 + 2 ft

Cross section area of the wall: pi * ( (20.9 * 106)2 – (20.9 * 106 + 2)2 )

The volume of the Pyramid / Cross section area of wall = Wall thickness

91,227,778 / (pi * (20.9 * 106 + 2)2 – ( 20.9 * 106 )2 ) = .35 ft

Meaning that there is, in fact, enough stone in the Great Pyramid of Giza to build a 2ft high wall around the earth that is 10cm (.35ft) thick.

Mind = Blown.




More Than 2,300 Years Ago, A Greek Geographer Proved The Earth Was Round

Today we can easily find out the circumference of our planet by simply ‘Googling’ it online.

By doing so, we will see that the exact circumference of the Earth is 40 075 km. There are some, however—the Flat Earth Society to be precise—who argue that the Earth is in fact not a sphere, but a flat plane.

However, more than 2000 years ago, ancient scholars managed to find out the Earth is a sphere—though an irregularly shaped one.

So, how on Earth did the ancient know the Earth was round, thousands of years ago, and without modern equipment?

More than 2,000 years ago, Greek Scientists proved the Earth was round. Image Credit: Shutterstock.

The first man to suggest the Earth was a sphere—to put the term to paper—was no other than the Great Aristotle, one of the greatest Greek scholars, a polymath with extensive knowledge in politics, poetry, theater, music, natural sciences, and philosophy.

Aristotle, however, was also a great astronomer. Aristotle wrote in 350BCE in the treatise “On the Heavens,” Book II, Chapter 14:

“Again, our observations of the stars make it evident, not only that the Earth is circular, but also that it is a circle of no great size. For quite a small change of position to south or north causes a manifest alteration of the horizon.”

“Indeed, there are some stars seen in Egypt and in the neighborhood of Cyprus which are not seen in the northerly regions; and stars, which in the north are never beyond the range of observation, in those regions rise and set. All of which goes to show not only that the earth is circular in shape, but also that it is a sphere of no great size.”

However, it was Eratosthenes who ‘nailed down’ the concept of a spherical Earth, and who managed to prove it more than 2,000 years ago.

When Eratosthenes was visiting Syene (now Aswan), he observed a phenomenon that caught his attention: at midday, on a summer solstice, there were no vertical shadows being cast down. This happened because the Sun was directly overhead.

Upon returning to his city, Alexandria, the mathematician tried to prove if the same thing happened there. He stuck a stick in the ground to see if, at noon, it generated shadows or not.

And of course, there was a shadow, of 7 degrees to be precise.

19th-century reconstruction of Eratosthenes’ map of the (for the Greeks) known world, c. 194 BC. Image credit: Wikimedia Commons.

The conclusion that Eratosthenes drew from this phenomenon was the right one: The Earth must be spherical.

If it was not curved or round, he should not have seen any shadows in Alexandria, as it happened during his visit to Aswan.

However, Eratosthenes wanted to know more about the Earth, and after having discovered the importance of the shadows, he began to calculate how much the circumference of the Earth measured using the shadows.

He asked a man to calculate the distance between Syene and Alexandria, which was equivalent to about 5000 stadiums (800 kilometers).

Then, Eratosthenes drew a simple conclusion: if the 7 degrees—or as he put it, one-fiftieth of a circle—of difference between Alexandria and Syene are 800 kilometers, the 360 degrees of the Earth are about 40,000 kilometers. Turns out, he was not far from the real circumference.

In this way, the Greek mathematician obtained a number very similar to the one we know now, using nothing more than a stick, the shadows, a bit of common sense and math.
