if this is to believed, there is no conspiracy, and the "ice wall" can not be the continent of Antarctica,

the faqqers will tell you this  video is wrong in every concept.

it is an enjoyable watch however

I purchased that video three years ago and uploaded it to Google. The movie is about Leo Ferrari's Canadian Flat Earth Society. He has a model which we disagree with, but the video has its merits in its historic and background Flat Earth information. With exception of a few items such as the spinning earth and the up-down motion of the sun, and "non-space," the video is for the most part reflective of this society.

I've just seen the 4 films.

If this is a the kind of evidence you accept, then anyone can make you believe in anything! I have rarely seen anything less scientifical that this. Mistakes, misconceptions, lack of evidence, far-fetched conclusions, name it: every possible mistake is present.

And, of course, different theories about the FE. You should say FETs instead of FET. More of this, you should study or work.

As I recall, Charles K. Johnson hated Leo Ferrari and thought that his Canadian FES was a mockery of the real FES.

so the video the video is almost opposite of the FAQ but it reflects the society for the most part?

So is the FAQ wrong? Or the Video?

The historic and background Flat Earth information is reflective of this society. The particular FE model they are using is not reflective of our model. We don't hold that the earth spins, that there's an up-down motion of the sun, or such a thing as 'non-space'. But  the video is still worth a watch for anyone interested in Flat Earth.

Ferarri goes through the Eratosthenes calculations, which often gets brought up.

Rowbotham's experiments are summarized.

The background of globularism is good.

If a few of the CanadianFES-only scenes in the film could be snipped out it would make a fine introduction to Flat Earth theory and the history of globularism.

it is sad to think she died searching for an "edge" in Antarctica.
As a Zetetic the edge (if one even iststs) can not exist in the continent of Anarctica without a massive coverup, and even the faqqers will tell you very few are part of any conspiracy.

Not so. See the "Stupid Conspiracy" thread for estimates of the ridiculously high numbers needed to make the cover up work (ignore Tom's attempts to sidetrack and derail it though).

you are correct, it would have to be massive
more evidence there is no conspiracy because you cant keep everyone (thousands upon thousands) that quiet

it is great that there are real thinkers like Master Davis who doesnt need a conspiracy to explain things.

I'd just like to say that the film is a joke. It's a thought exercise that demonstrates elements other documentaries use to appear more believable. It's a "mocumentary." It was made with the knowledge that all reasoning was based on invalid premises.

On the whole it really captures the essence of this site.

Master Lord John Davis seems to have tricked you into thinking he explains things. He doesn't. He says "It's all explained in my book, wait a minute, coming any day now..." and you fall for it.

John Davis never explains things except with reference to other unexplained aspects, like his Aether idea.
An illustrative example:
RE'er: "Why does the sun appear to sink below the horizon?"
Davis: "The path of the light beam gets skewed by Aetheric vibes. The mechanism of this will be explained in my book which will be published soonTM."
An explanation that is not an explanation. BTW you do the same thing with your vague waffling about celestial pulling now that you've had to admit variations in accelerative force at the earth's surface.

I trust that Master Davis is not deceiving us. I believe his book will be released very soon.

Um.... you guys know that 'In Search of the Edge' is an educational film intended to teach critical thinking skills, to children as young as 11 years old, by presenting FALSE evidence for a Flat Earth so that the students can find the errors.  I always laugh when I see "Dr. Leo Charles Ferrari" in a Flat Earth video (of which there are many).

Yes, very smart cookies! But I'd be careful of that "Planoterrestrialst"! 
Sure they were real doctors, Dr Leo Ferrari, PhD
Quote from: Wikipedia
Leo Charles Ferrari was a St. Thomas University philosophy professor, noted Saint Augustine scholar, and founding member of the parody organization Flat Earth Society of Canada
A "philosophy professor", he did have a science degree, but did not work as a scientist or pretend to be one.
This might be worth reading (with the Andrea Barnes video in mind) DR. FERRARI AND THE FLAT EARTH SOCIETY by Alden Nolan.

George Vanderkuur "has taught science and mathematics in elementary and secondary classrooms."
More in George Vanderkuur, Life Member Ontario Association of Physics Teachers
Quote
Well known for innovations in hands-on learning and Physics workshops for teachers, George was active as a curriculum developer, text book writer and teacher educator nationally and internationally.

So, keep pushing them to your hearts content, along with that wonderful Antarctic explorer, Andrea Barnes.
Quote from: Frankie, Yahoo Answers
Andrea Barnes didn't go to Antarctica. She's made up. Watch the 'documentary', it's a spoof to teach children about critical thinking not just believing everything you hear. If you look closely enough and really switch your brain on you might see some clues. I'll give you a hint- cows are not commonly associated with Antarctic fauna
whoever Frankie is? But the Antarctic cows sounded interesting.
