I don't get it either but that is some of the poppycock they have come up with. I posted video's showing Earthshine on the moon during one of its phases but that is ignored also.
The amount of utter BS is staggering from those dudes.
Let's see. First off, humans have such an incredibly special significants to the gods that we get our own universe with Earth as the absolute center.
So the entire universe spins around Earth.
So, knowing a smidgen of physics the Earth CANNOT EVER be spinning, too easy to show that one.
So a non-spinning Earth in spite of experiments done 400 years ago, like Foucault's Pendulum, all fake or whatever.
Since they can't have a picture of the whole of Antarctica, that causes them to say NASA ALWAYS LIES. No moonlandings, no such thing as satellites.
GPS is run by ground stations, I pointed out they work just fine in the middle of the Pacific ocean but that goes over their heads.
I pointed out that TV sat dishes HAVE to be pointing UP so what are they pointing to?Balloons high in the sky? Even though the dishes are permenantly mounted and seldom need readjusting.
So you can't see beyond 30 or 40 miles due to 'density'.
I presume density of atmosphere. But I showed views from mountains as low as 1 mile high and see objects clearly for a hundred miles or more.
The sun and moon are only a few thousand miles above the Earth. The moon is self illuminating having nothing to do with the sun which is about 50 miles in diameter and the moon about 30.
I pointed out that if the moon was only a couple thou out people on one side of this flat Earth would see one side of the moon but people 10,000 miles away would see the BACKSIDE. Also ignored.
The BS just gets deeper and deeper. and Freak won't even BEGIN to answer those refutaions being obsessed with why he can see buildings across the water where he lives in Michigan.
He just goes, answer MY question and then I will answer yours;
So I answer to the best of my ability but he moves the goalpost and just takes that as a non-response. So it just goes into a big loop from that point on.
