God, Hope & Helping Others
For most of My life I have sought solutions to the problems on this planet. I have studied, not the "economics" They teach in school (though, having worked 14 years in banking, I grasp all that quite well), which begins with the assumption that money is a necessary tool, but the foundational reason of why We Humans exchange to survive.
What I have discovered is that all money, at its roots, is accounting for Human energy added. In all its forms, trade, barter, work exchange, shells, beads, sticks notched and split, coins (metals), bills, and electronic bits, We are placing value on, and accounting for the Human energy added into this world of Ours.
Another aspect of money, especially the less "tangible" forms - shells, beads, sticks notched and split, coins (metals), bills, and electronic bits - is that it promotes psychopaths to the top. The power over Others that money offers draws Them, and They will do LITERALLY anything to get and keep that power over Others, while the non-psychopaths (94% of Us) will stop short of unEthical means to obtain money, except in desperation.
Accounting for Human energy made sense back when such directed, meaningful energy was scarce. Somehow Humans had to be motivated to do the necessary (and sometimes UNnecessary) things that keep Human society going, but that there were not enough People (or no One) who WANTED to do the work. Slavery came about to accomplish these things, and then wage slavery. Humanity has never had complete freedom on Our planet (stolen from Us by the psychopaths in control through "trusts" and deceit).
Today, We have game-changing technologies - and if We play Our cards right, We can co-create a vastly better way of operating Our society. A way that promotes the caring Ones to take care of things, and not the psychopaths. The three key elements are: free energy, the interweb, and robots.
I invite the reader to My forum (a free forum, all ad revenue goes to ProBoards, the host) to investigate what I suggest We choose to create:
As long as We retain the twin towers to psychopaths in power (accounting for Human energy and top-down "government" systems) and the loathsome vine that supports the towers (the legal system, which thwarts Ethics FAR more than serves them), We WILL see poverty on a rich and abundant planet, oppression of Humans, wage/debt slavery, intrusion, and profiteering (including but surely not limited to war profiteering).
Thank You for Your response - for some reason I was not notified... Anyway, I have spent 100+ hours researching the flat earth. Here are My findings:
First, the north-centric model (Dubay, et al) is flat wrong - it would have the stars in the "south" whipping by at a fair clip in nearly straight lines, with different stars seen from different southern points. But the stars in the south circle around a point (no visible star there) mirroring the behavior of those in the north, always due south from wherever One can see it (anywhere in the southern hemisphere). See: watch?v=dsz6yKDrCHM if You think those southern stars are projected into the sky.
Second, on a flat plain, when going upward, once You get above things that block the view, You would see all You can see. Going up further will show no more. But when We go upwards, We see more and more of the planet, exactly like One would going up from the surface of a ball.
Third, the flat earth "movement" is RIFE with disingenuous arguments - ignoring scale, gravity, optics, friction, refraction, AND misstating distances to "prove" flatness. WHY does the truth need even ONE disingenuous argument?
Fourth, though the flat earth proponents have said that if You get a stronger instrument, it will bring ships back into view that sank, hull to crows nest, at the horizon, I have watched ships sink with binoculars and then switched to a fairly powerful telescope - and nope. It does NOT bring them back into view. Once sunk, They cannot be seen, and so... There are People out there LYING to prove the flat earth. WHY would the truth need even ONE lie?
Fifth, the fact that, for aeons, sailors have been calculating latitude in the northern hemisphere by the position of Polaris, with a direct correlation between latitude and degrees above the horizon, proves a globe. This ONLY works on a globe. When Polaris is at the horizon (something that cannot happen on a pancake), One is at the equator (0º), when it is 45º up from the horizon, One is at the 45th parallel...
As for some of the disingenuous arguments for the pancake... I'll give You three. I have seen People pouring water on a ball to "prove" water doesn't "stick to a ball," ignoring the planet-sized gravity well immediately adjacent pulling the water OFF the ball. I have seen People spinning balls on the floor to "prove" a ball will not keep spinning, ignoring the friction of the ball on the floor. And I have seen People point to a glass of water saying, "Look! It's FLAT!" As if, at that small a fraction of a single degree of arc (4" is 0.00009% of a single degree of arc), We would see the hump in the middle a few MOLECULES high by eyeballing the glass.
So. The FE needs disingenuous arguments and lies. The globe needs NONE. Which model has the highest probability of being correct?
The "disingenuous arguments" that you point out are not made by researchers, but by average people just commenting on their newly opened eyes to a subject they never thought to question. Not official "arguments", so you are making a straw man attack there.
Look at EVERYTHING that NASA puts out. It's ALL disingenuous lies. Why do they hairspray the women's hair on ISS and have them parade around with fake-stiff hair to pretend zero gravity? Why are women allowed on that cramped space station with highly sensitive equipment and recycled air with long hair in the first place? Do you know how much "dander" long hair produces? The loose hair would shut down fans and other mechanical equipment very quickly. Why is there never any stars when viewing the alleged ISS camera? And where are the tens of thousands of supposed orbiting satellites and space trash when viewing ISS camera? Pristine, clean, empty, clear, STARLESS skies is all we see. Why does the rockets always go up and then arch sharply over on their side and go horizontally out of view? Have you ever seen a life-size model of the original "space capsules"? Where did they store fuel for the return lift-off and guidance home? Where is the oxygen, water and food stored? What about batteries to keep the electronics going? That thing is literally a tin can built for 2, and no extra space. How does the radio communications reach over 93 million miles so they could talk to the guys walking on the moon from their headsets?? My modern wifi barely reaches 100 feet effectively. And the list goes on and on and on and on.. from the OFFICIAL "space experts". I went to a "space museum" recently. Not ONE single solitary piece of real equipment in the building! It was ALL mock-ups, models, and drawings. THAT is disingenuous. They have an extreme budget, and can't put some actual equipment on display?
You are mistaken to say that the "globe theory" requires NO disingenuous arguments. It's so full of chicanery and deceit that their own story makes itself a laughingstock. Why do they need to lie so much to keep everybody bound to their story? Why didn't they stick a big bright solar powered flashing light, or a mirror or something on the moon while up there so we could all look at it and KNOW that man has gone there? Why is there still argument about "thrust in space" when NASA should have ALL the scientific data, with proof and with clearly functional models, and even actual video, of how it works? Why hasn't NASA addressed this simple argument with official proof? And why does NASA have the world's most expensive movie production setup in the world? How many lies does it take until you drop the argument that they don't need any lies?
There are MANY free energy solutions that have been suppressed and hidden. I know personally of one: electrogravitics (EG). EG went into black projects nearly 60 years ago. So though there are scam artists out there, claiming FE, that does not mean that ALL FE technologies are scams.
Money in and of itself is an "item" used in a barter transaction for goods and services. It is neither good nor bad in and of itself. Money can be used to do good or evil by the holder. It is the holder/possessor of the money/barter that determines the ultimate outcome of it's use.
The key element in "Human energy" is the word human. Humans have free will given to them by their Creator Lord God. All humans are given choices on how they will use their money; whether for good purposes or evil purposes.
The bible explains it this way: 1 Timothy 6:10-11 "(10) For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (11) But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness."
"The love of money" in the original Greek is the Strong's Concordance: G5365 φιλαργυρία philarguria fil-ar-goo-ree'-ah From G5366; avarice: - love of money.
You see, the bible teaches that the "avarice: - love of money" is the root of all evil deeds because some humans covet money causing them to sin against the Lord God and others. This is a result of original sin. Unless humans realize the power of sin over the use of their money, they will continue to handle money in a sinful manner. It's their nature. Unless one becomes a follower of the Lord God, they probably will not be able to flee the corruptive use of money.
It matters not what attempts one comes up with to correct this sin problem..."Today, We have game-changing technologies - and if We play Our cards right, We can co-create a vastly better way of operating Our society. A way that promotes the caring Ones to take care of things, and not the psychopaths. The three key elements are: free energy, the interweb, and robots." Unless the underlying sin nature problem is dealt with, things will remain the same. Mankind believes they have the solution to the many problems in life, but until the sin issue is dealt with, there will be no change for the better.
