Episode Title: No Fanfare, Flat Earth, Mirages, and Atmospheric Lensing
Produced by: Rusty Walker
Description: Discussing No Fanfare’s recent uploads and their special pleading, false analogy, conflation, failure to analyse observations accurately, hasty conclusion, and much more.
Please flat Earthers, if you think you can make a prediction of how far away something should be when I’m 100ft high or 200ft high when it goes over the horizon, based on atmospheric lensing, leave your working. It would be most interesting to see if this can be done.
NB the OOCL page gave the ship’s draft in the left pane when I scrolled as 15.2m, or 49 ft 10 in.
NB. When I’m discussing how far the ship travels in the time the video plays, I originally mentioned that the ship isn’t travelling directly away from us, but rather is sailing at an angle, and that the distance will therefore be a little less. I forgot that in this take, although included the setup for the point.
