Title: If the earth is flat, what shape is it?
Post by: Dinosaur Neil on October 17, 2017, 11:46:43 AM
Assuming, for the sake of argument, that the earth is a plane of some kind... what shape is it?
A disc?
A square?
A pentagon?
Something else?

Please post your answers below, but only do so if you can present a logical argument to back up your choice.

What shape is infinity?
Maybe the question should be reworded as "If the earth is flat, what shape is the known world?"

Let's forget about the part where "the sun don't shine".
Jack, in the FAQ puts it this way:
Quote
What does the earth look like?

As seen in the diagrams above, the earth is in the form of a disk with the North Pole in the center and Antarctica as a wall around the edge. This is the generally accepted model among members of the society. In this model, circumnavigation is performed by moving in a great circle around the North Pole.

The earth is surrounded on all sides by an ice wall that holds the oceans back. This ice wall is what explorers have named Antarctica. Beyond the ice wall is a topic of great interest to the Flat Earth Society. To our knowledge, no one has been very far past the ice wall and returned to tell of their journey. What we do know is that it encircles the earth and serves to hold in our oceans and helps protect us from whatever lies beyond.
Can we take that as definitive?

By the way it would be helpful if all these were fixed:

Every shape other than a butterfly distorts the shape of known continents beyond recognition.

This is a Flat Earth Site please don't pollute it with :P facts and logic.:P AFanOfTruth has no place here.

Guess i don't either, but we try.

Flat earthers don't seem to be making any offerings, so FalseProphet and I were just making :P helpful :P suggestions.

Besides some flat earthers claim that the earth looks like the following, or something very similar. 
This?

Generally redarded as the "Accepted" map.
    Or maybe this?

All of these have impossible routes, but the usual North Polar AEP map hides this because no regular routes cross Antarctica.

Rectangle is most possible. The earth dome has some evidences (I mean signs) about its shape as rectangle prism and this makes the most possibility as rectangle.

Interesting. We are seeing good evidence that it is not remotely likely to be a disc. Yet dogma-fuelled flattists such as Jora and his ilk seem to insist it's a disc. While also screeching that the zetetic method is the only way to know things.

Oh no. There are other methods which show it to be a disc.
Etiher as a group, or you individually, travel to various locations around the globe and measure the time the sun is due north or due south, (preferably the same day), measured as UTC.
Note that the sun from the NP appears to circle around.
These facts mean it must be the disc.

If you have a trianglular or rectangular (or every cyclic polygon shaped) map, you can just expand it to its circumscribed circle and get a disc.

Yes, those "facts mean it must be the disc", though in principle it could be North or South Pole centred.

But can you imagine the outcry is someone claimed that the FE map should look like:

It does make Antarctica and Australia look good, but I doubt that the North Americans will be satisfied.

Well, according to the believers of the non-euclidian-space-whatever-junk-crap (they're somewhere around here, I swear...) the world we live on might look like a sphere at one point from space anyway.
So why even bother?  :P

this FEIB only use the term non Euclidian to handle that the earth is in reality not flat.
only that way they can "explain" the errors of the flat earth (like the distances between points on the earth).

most of them can also even not give a explanation about the real shape of the earth.

That's pretty much the point of such BS though, isn't it? Why have a distinctive shape of a flat earth when it's supposed to magically shape like a sphere viewed from space anyway?  ;D

Interesting. We are seeing good evidence that it is not remotely likely to be a disc. Yet dogma-fuelled flattists such as Jora and his ilk seem to insist it's a disc. While also screeching that the zetetic method is the only way to know things.
Oh no. There are other methods which show it to be a disc.
Etiher as a group, or you individually, travel to various locations around the globe and measure the time the sun is due north or due south, (preferably the same day), measured as UTC.
Note that the sun from the NP appears to circle around.
These facts mean it must be the disc.

Well no, not really, the sun doesn't move in any way with what you'd expect to see from a disc. From ANY vantage point other than the centre of a disc, the speed of the sun would vary throughout the day to an observer.
Note that the sun from the SP also appears to circle around.
These facts mean it can't be the disc.

Oh, and one more thing... the path of the sun is irrelevant to the shape of the land underneath it. So your logic doesn't even work. I can draw a circle on a square sheet of paper, just like the sun could follow a circular path above a square plane.

I meant a flat Earth would have to be a disc.
Going a few more steps from there shows it can't be flat.

Yeah, I know it can't be flat, but you're missing the point of the thread, which is to show that the flattists accept the shape of their earth model to be circular, but there really isn't any evidence to place circularity above any other shape.

There are several lines of reasoning which leads to different shapes (and if followed properly would show it is round).

But the primary one to accept it (at least the known portions of it) is circular is the east-west circumnavigations and time zones.
Yes, there is no indication of what is beyond 90 degrees south (as it doesn't exist) (or 180 degrees east/west), so it could hypothetically be other shapes, but the known section would have to be circular.

The shape of the known section is completely irrelevant, because apart from the self-contradictory dual earth model, all flat earth models feature an edge which lies an unknown distance beyond the known area, and there is no reason to assume the distance from the limit of the known area to the edge is exactly the same from all points at the limit of the known area. In other words, taking the most usual FE model as an example, there could be a massive Antarctic Handle sticking out 10,000 miles further somewhere along the rim, couldn't there? Sort of like a tennis racquet shape. Or there could be two. Or five - Starfish Earth anybody?

that's than convenient, if you can not explain it or it is impossible you simply declare it as irrelevant.
BTW. the South pole is relatively good explored. there is no beyond a know area.

Flat Earthers accept a circular disk because Gleeson patented a map which was a circular disk. If there is one group of people who are experts at parroting what they have been told, who have really been brainwashed away from the truth by a group with an agenda, they are the members and believer of the Flat Earth Society.

That's the only "argument" he is able to bring up against me, and even that he can not get right. I am way worse than a French, I am German.

Door nails might not be overly intelligent, but at least they serve a useful purpose.

He also has a useful purpose, he proves that even if you have the intelligence of a door nail you still can make a living.

With that said I really like to know what he does for living that does not need intelligent thinking. Maybe something like manure shoveler or a religious preacher.

I guess I need to toughen up.  I should not be such a pussy about communists taking my grandfather behind a building and shooting him for simply being a lawyer, which led to my entire family having to flee the country and emigrate to less killing nations.  I need to man up and grow a pair.  ausGeoff, I mean rabinoz is right to make fun of the plight of my family.

Who hurt you?

Rubbish! I did not "make fun of the plight of your family" or trivialise it in any way!

You know very well that I knew nothing of your family situation before posting this:
I am not French.
How does Chilean rate on the scale of things?
Though I guess their standards were so high they chucked you out long ago.

And if you are so ignorant that you think that ausGoeff are I are the same, I seriously doubt the sanity of you "artificial intelligence".

Get a real brain sometime!

Assuming, for the sake of argument, that the earth is a plane of some kind... what shape is it?
A disc?
A square?
A pentagon?
Something else?

Please post your answers below, but only do so if you can present a logical argument to back up your choice.
that's the problem with this theory any shape will intercept the gravity of earth there for i don't really support it

He accuses everyone of being Ausgoeff at some point. I was accused of being him after I'd been here a few weeks.
