Poll: Should Flat Earth be a Topic of Discussion allowed here a Lunatic Outpost.
Yes, regardless of whether I agree with the topic or not it should be allowed to be discussed.
No, regardless of my beliefs I don't think it should be discussed.
I don't care either way, as people who don't want to participate don't have to enter the thread.

Why rainbows are curved
Posted by EarthSky in EARTH | April 9, 2018

A rainbow isn’t a flat 2-dimensional image on the dome of sky. It’s more like a mosaic, composed of many separate bits … in 3 dimensions.

Light and raindrops work together to create a rainbow, but why is it curved? Here are some things to remember before you start, or just skip down to some rainbow physics, or skip to the explanation as to why rainbows are curved, below.

Things to remember …

First, look for a rainbow when the sun is behind you, and there are raindrops falling in front of you.

Second, know that – when making the rainbow – sunlight is emerging from many raindrops at once. A rainbow isn’t a flat two-dimensional image on the dome of sky. It’s more like a mosaic, composed of many separate bits … in three dimensions. More about the three-dimensional quality of rainbows below. Just know that your eye sees rainbows as flat for the same reason we see the sun and moon as flat disks, because, when we look in the sky, there are no visual cues to tell us otherwise.

Third, rainbows are more than half circles. They’re really whole circles. You’ll never see a circle rainbow from Earth’s surface because your horizon gets in the way. But, up high, people in airplanes sometimes do see them. Check out the photo below.

...

Rainbows don’t exist! They are nowhere in space. You cannot touch them or drive around them. They are a collection of rays from glinting raindrops that happen to reach our eyes. Raindrops glint rainbow rays at an angle of 42 degrees from the point directly opposite the sun. All the drops glinting the rainbow are on the surface of a cone with its point at your eye. They can be near and far. Other drops not on the cone also glint sunlight into rainbow colours but their rays do not reach our eyes. We only see those on the cone. When you look down the cone you see a circle. So rainbows are circles!

-------

Very informative article with lots of rainbow pics, except the claim is that rainbows are circles and/or cones and from space you can see them as the circles they are, they appear as half circles on Earth due to the horizon.

But now scroll down to the Photo via Eric Rolph with a person in a red jacket, arms spread out wide in the mountains with the ends of the rainbow clearly not going behind the mountains... so much for the can't see the rainbow circle due to the horizon claim.

------ I attest that we ought to be able to question stuff like this that does not match up with what we are being told. Whether its rainbows, or the shape of the Earth, or whatever else. We should never stop questioning things.

Do you have proof of Dark Matter? Because that’s what’s needed to hold your preferred cosmological model together. You are putting your faith in something undetectable and invisible.

Dark matter is supposed to not follow the laws of physics, while dark energy is supposed to be the opposite force of gravity as everything is pulled into the opposite direction of gravitational pull.

One requires all of physics to be tossed out in its definition, and the other requires it to be like gravity only in the reverse direction.

just posted the thing on the rainbows with photos, that one photo clearly shows the rainbow not being off in the horizon but rather between the mountains... clearly through proof of rainbow photography the horizon of the Earth starts between the mountains

8, assuming you mean North and South Poles... but I'm guessing for all shapes anything divisible by two works

http://discovermagazine.com/2014/dec/23-...north-pole
There are four North Poles. The terrestrial North Pole is a fixed geographic point that's diametrically opposed to the terrestrial South Pole on our planet's axis of rotation; it's the top of the spinning top that's Earth.

https://thinkglobalschool.org/do-you-kno...there-are/
four South Poles
Of the many interesting historical facts and stories he told, the students were amazed to find there are four South Poles on the Earth's crust: The Geographic South Pole. The South Magnetic Pole.Mar 6, 2012

around 60 million if you mean the Poles as in the people
Poles - Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poles
Estimates vary depending on source, though available data suggest a total number of around 60 million people worldwide (with roughly 21 million living outside of Poland, many of whom are not of Polish ethnicity, but Polish nationals). There are almost 38 million Poles in Poland alone.

Allowing one of the most toxic ideologies of the modern day on to this board is not my decision.
Might as well allow paedophiles and terrorists while you're at it.

Are you actually stating that anyone discussing Flat Earth is as bad as a pedophile or terrorist? Really, is that what you are saying???

I am saying that people who promote lies are destructive to society.
As are terrorists and paedophiles.

So where do you draw the line in regards to censoring topics that visitors might find nuts? Bigfoot? Lizard people? Somewhere between bigfoot and lizard people? Can you make a list of acceptable and unacceptable topics to discuss here?

Bigfoot and lizard people aren't spammed in each and every remotely related thread with the same material over and over

If the mods could even pretend to uphold the rule against spam grav and the FE cultists would have been permabanned a long time ago.

But who am i fooling thinking the "rules" would ever be enforced in a way that even approaches objective.

Why yes.
There is evidence of an enormous amount of missing mass.
The name applied to that unknown is dark matter.
Dark matter is "undetectable" in the same way wind is "invisible".
You cant see them but you sure as sh*t can see their effect.
