Who the Hell is SalenGa?

If you frequent the city of Manila, then I am sure that you saw a chalk written scribble like this:
.

The scribble asks, “Do you see a round ocean? Earth locally flat www.salen-ga Tangent Theorem.”

Chalk written scribbles like this is quite common in Manila and I have seen another one like this on a wall along in front of Quiapo Church. The scribble above was written on the wall of dilapidated Metropolitan Theater in the Lawton Area of Manila.

What is so special with this scribble? The special thing about this is Salen-ga or Salenga. He is a “mysterious” man who scribbles his theories about flat earth and positive electrons all around Manila. Mystery about this guy abounds that many people talks about him, there is even a heated debate about who he is or if his theories are correct. There are also stories that some professors are telling their students to look for Salenga (Salen-Ga) and interview him.

Actually, I had a close encounter with Salenga (Salen-Ga) and during that encounter, I never knew that he is somewhat a celebrity in Manila.

About two years or a year ago, a middle-aged man climbed up our bus. He did not took any seat but started preaching. Well, preachers talking about the Bible is ordinary but when the middle-aged man started lambasting scientists and accused media of covering scientific lies, then I know that I am in for a weird treat. The middle-aged man talked about the earth as a flat object. He reasoned that when you stand in the middle of the road, all you can see is plane surface and you can never see any curvature. He kept on talking for almost an hour until he climbed down our bus.

Salenga (Salen-Ga) is somewhat weird because he chose to air his scientific arguments inside a bus where most of the people don’t care much about science or any theories about flat earth or positive electrons. I am amazed with Salenga (Salen-Ga) because he doesn’t tire preaching his scientific belief and he doesn’t stop scribbling his ideas on walls around Manila.

How Salenga (Salen-Ga) looks like? Here is his photo I found from a Flickr account.

So did you already saw the Salenga (Salen-Ga) scribbles or saw Salenga himself? Tell me about it.

  10. wala naman mali sa sinabi niya ah? hindi niya naman sinabi na flat ang mundo.. and sabi niya, Earth is "LOCALLY" flat. meaning, at a very small area, flat yun..

    haha!

    Wala nga namang mali sa sinabi ni Salenga. Pwede namang maging flat yung isang lugar eh, lalo na kung plain. Pero hindi lahat ng lugar ay locally flat. Paano yung bundok? Locally flat ba sa bundok?

    ReplyDelete
  12. oo nga. pero sinabi rin ba niya na "all areas on Earth are locally flat"? hindi naman diba?

    the point is, there's nothing weird about what that person says, unlike what the other commentors are saying.

    You know. I don't why is there a need for argument patungkol sa bagay na ito. The earth as a whole is "round" or bilog. Ang prrof noon ay yung photos coming from the outer space na kuha ng mga astronauts that shows that the earth is indeed "round."

    Second, meron ngang "flat areas" locally at hindi naman kita kinokontra dun. Maliban din sa "flat area" meron ding non-flat areas.

  14. Eeeee...if I meet this kind of people, I'd run far faraway. Don't like strangers dropping by the house trying to pull people into their religion also.

    YES IM SALEN-GA AND IM INVITING YOU ALL TO PLEASE SEE MY STREET VIDEO INTERVIEW FROM INTERESTED TECHNOLOGY STUDENTS WC SET UP A LONG HEATED DISCUSSION ON WHY THE RICE FIELDS SHOULD NOT HAVE WATER IN THE CENTER IF THE WORLD IS ONLY ROUND!! EVER NOTICED THAT THE BASKETBALL COURT CIRCLE INTERSECTED BY A STRAIGHT LINE HAS AN OVERLAP IN THE FORM OF A SQUARE? A SQUARE HAS FOUR EQUADISTANT FLAT SIDES PROVING THAT A CIRCLE IS COMPOSED OF VERY SHORT FLAT LINES WHICH WE SEE ON THE BEACH AS THE LOCALLY FLAT HORIZON. NO HURT FEELINGS I DISCOVERED IT AHEAD OF ALL PEOPLE IN THIS PLANET.

  20. Its just calculus. Dividing a curve into many flat tangents. Frankly, I think other people discovered that way before his time, but credit to him for seeing this all on his own.

    1. Wrong idea. Tangent line is a line that coincides with a curve at one point. So, if you connect all tangent lines then you are not creating a circle but a figure that has many sides.

      Salenga's hypothesis will only work if what will be connected are the coincident points. In that case, you are connecting points, not lines.
