What is double awesome about this post is that it coincides with the recent detection of 
Gravitational Waves after the 2 Neutron Stars collided proving Einstein's brilliance again :)

monkwarrior My point is:

 1) you've claimed that you don't know if the earth is round because you haven't seen it for yourself. 

2) your posting a link to science that is based on celestial bodies being round.

monkwarrior So you contradicting yourself, and me pointing it out, makes me a troll?

lockner01 You've already proven yourself a troll (proof).  You're simply continuing that by being ignorant and assuming things that aren't so, with your trollish reasoning (as you exemplified in the proof link above), just like most other trolls do.

lockner01 You're JUST DISCOVERING a that the default definition of a troll on IAB is anyone who points out the obvious flaws in spunkwarrior's logic, facts and reasoning?

Most of us had that figured out shortly after his first appearance.

lockner01 because you're trolling again.  Instead of discussing the theory of gravity, you came out trolling.

monkwarrior You should stop feeding the trolls then.  That would be anyone with a keyboard besides you. I no longer communicate with you; no more then the homeless guy at the park with the Jesus signs. Please get some professional help if you can.  I'm not saying that to put you down but because I am concerned your blinded way of thinking cannot be healthy.  Good luck.
(I decided to grant you this pea sized morsel as an exception)

abetterworld I know how to handle trolls.  FYI: it might have been best to say nothing than to throw your hat in with the trolls.  Concern trolls don't bother me in the slightest either.  Apparently it's you who needs help with sticking to what you decide to do, and also assuming you know what others think when you can't even guess a 3 digit number they're thinking of.  Good luck finding professional help with that, it's a nasty cycle that really only you can work your way out of.

i heard einstiens theory of gravity may be wrong, and there's another theory out there that doesn't need to use made up adjuster values like dark matter.

Years ago I read an explanation of quantum field theory, which sort of explained it like this- charges of varying intensity.

See! They demonstrate that gravity is flat, therefore the Earth is flat!

melcervini Yo mama is so massive that the gravitational lensing effect is so great around her that a light beam passing within 1 AU has a radius of curvature of 6E9 meters!
