Oh shit, I think us globe heads are done for now!
Earlier on, everyone's favourite fuckhead of the internet known most commonly as Jeranism (or “Jism” as some would call him), uploaded this wonderful offering on his twatty YouTube channel, which is in fact his 263rd video. (Hence the star wars-like title of this post).
In the video, he claims that star trails cannot exist on a spinning, spherical earth because when he attached the laser beam to his globe and tied a rope to it attaching it to roof, he spinned the globe to see that the laser moved off the pole. His conclusion? It was that there should be no perfect star trails on a spinning spheroid.
If anyone is still alive right now because most who just read what I wrote had died from the stupid overload, I have some stuff I still need to tell you, Jeranism, and of course his entire fanbase of stupid fucking idiotic twits.
1. Do you honestly think that after over a decade on the internet of flat earth debunking over and over and over and over again you would just NOW finally find an argument we cannot refute? This is the same with doomsday nuts… every prediction for the end of world was WRONG, and it always WILL be wrong. This is the EXACT same with flat earthers who every 5 hours or so find a “new argument” to refute objective reality. Every time, and I mean EVERY TIME, it has been refuted. Always.
2. This one is aimed at Jism’s fans: Are any of YOU gonna test Jeranism’s experiment YOURSELVES or are you just gonna take it hook line and sinker without questioning it’s authenticity? Jeranism has said himself before that if you believe in something you are told blindly it can be considered a religion… That’s EXACTLY what you’re doing, you fucking hypocrites.
3. No, I’m not gonna test it myself. Why? Because guess what... Wolfie6020 is planning to do it himself and he KNOWS that Jeranism’s experiment was flawed. He has a plan to do it better than Jism.
Now, the more alert among you will realise that I myself am being a hypocrite because I will probably take Wolfie6020’s experiment hook line and sinker. Yes, but today I will be showing you why it is undoubtedly so that Jism's experiment is obviously flawed.
First of all, a HUGE shoutout to Cara Diann, who took a screenshot during the video to show that the rope is NOT aligned up with the globe’s axis. Take a look.
Now Jism, I have to ask just like Cara: Are you trying to be deceptive?
Are you TRYING to get the result you want? Wolfie6020, the guy from earlier, gave me this image here to show that Jism’s laser was NOT perfectly aligned up with North, making Jism’s results very messy as we saw in the video.
Moving swiftly on.
Flat Earth Math, a YouTube flat earth debunker, commented this wonderful piece of text on your shitey video. If you have the time, I greatly encourage you read it, it’s excellent. It basically sums up all the problems with Jisms clusterfuck of an experiment.
Now, I’m gonna cheat a little bit here: I’m gonna use simulations to “debunk” Jism’s video.
Yes, yes, I know Jism said in the video that he wants an actual model and NOT computer simulations to prove him wrong, but because I can do WHATEVER I want and nobody can stop me, I will show him and everyone else that star trails ABSOLUTELY can exist on a globe earth.
However, please don’t consider this a debunking, wait for Wolfie6020 and others to do that. Rather, consider this a shitpost.
Ok, let’s go.
Celestia is great. Celestia is a simulated heliocentric solar system simulation that is ALWAYS correct in its observations. I’ve talked with flat earthers before that the fact that celestia is heliocentric and ALWAYS correct means that heliocentrism is pretty useful when it comes to predicting astronomical events, making heliocentrism make much more sense than any other model that exists out there (be it flat earth model or the geocentric model.)
Let's set ourselves down somewhere on the northern hemisphere and look north from our location. We will see Polaris and the northern celestial pole, obviously.
Then, twelve hours later, (the equivalent of Jism spinning his little globe), Polaris is still in roughly the same place. The only difference is that Polaris has moved to the opposite side of the crosshair due to the rotation of the earth and because it isn’t directly on the celestial pole.
According to the heliocentric model, star trails absolutely CAN exist on a spinning globe earth.
Also, just for confirmation, celestia is based on heliocentrism. Take a look.
Now, if anyone’s wondering why I’m acting so dramatic, it’s because Jism seems to be getting desperate, and once his video is properly debunked by Wolfie6020 and Shawn Hufford, Jism will probably curl up into a ball and cry like a baby who got it’s toy taken away.
Actually, no. He won’t. He even stated in the description of his video that if he’s proven wrong, he will happily admit it. Good on ya, Jism!
