Title: How does the sun float?
Post by: 13enny on June 21, 2006, 08:01:59 PM
Just wondering, because if you believe in this flat earth idea, how the sun and moon etc "float" above us.

You need to have some idea of gravity as not being connected to mass because otherwise people at the edge of the flat earth would be pulled into the middle.

So how do the sun and moon stay above us all the time and not just fall "down" below the earth?

In the Flat Earth model, the Earth still emits a magnetic field of sorts. This field, from the North Pole, is what keeps the magnetically attracted Sun and Moon in "orbit" above the Earth.

That's absurd. The sun and moon would fall to the earth then, as the equilibrium of the 'universal acceleration' would be broken. There would have to be ANOTHER pair of magnets, exactly big enough to keep the sun and moon contained against the magnetic pull of the earth. An unstable relationship at best.
