Do you only do « fact-checking » or are « conspiracy theories » and « pseudoscience » also a target of this platform?
In the second case, I would propose « The Principle » ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Principle ) a movie defending the thesis that Earth is « motionless » at center of a Universe rotating around it, as a target.
But we don’t have that many videos in English, and a full movie legally available on YouTube is very interesting to fact-check.
I have only 2 questions before possibly adding the movie you suggest on CF:
Most of us are not native English speakers (including me), so would you like to participate to the checking of the video, and/or invite others on the platform to make the English community growing here?
The YT video you gave seems to be about a movie called « Einstein: The Closet Geocentrist ». Is it really the same as « The Principle »?
Well, je suis français mais comme le film est en anglais, je m’adressais à la communauté anglophone (et je vais poursuivre de même).
I think this is a great initiative, and we have to spread the word to english people too
Nice, so many arguments are already covered. I have to have a look.
Some people that are doing everyday debunk on some flat-Earth group I’m on may be interested.
However, to debunk that movie well enough one needs an above average understanding of Special Relativity, and (quite harder) General Relativity too. I can manage SR, but understanding GR implications over the Mach’s Principle is above what I can currently do safely.
So, more than good English, good physics would be needed first.
I looked at the French debunk, it’s fine for a start, but maybe more is needed.
You are right: this is a second film that looks so close to « The Principle » that I just assumed it was same (same authors, reusing same interviews, etc.), it’s some « enriched » version, but basically reusing about same images and exactly same interviews of physicists.
« The Principle » is not publicly available.
