Flat Earth Q&A / Satellites?
« on: August 03, 2009, 10:13:28 PM »
I've seen a few posts from FEers claiming that satellites don't exist. I don't spend much time here, but I was just wondering;

exactly how do you explain the satellites flying in the sky that I see almost every single night from my house? They are visible to the naked eye. If y'all claim they don't exist, then what are those things? And if they do exist, why wouldn't space travel be possible?

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Round Earth Believer Here.
« on: October 02, 2008, 01:28:49 PM »
I would just like to say, that I believe the whole Flat Earth theory is....well.....stupid. No offense, I hope. Anyway since I am not so ignorant that I'm just going to say that I am right and everyone on the site is wrong, I will listen to arguements. And yes, I have looked at the theorys.

Here are some of my arguements:

1: Now, if the world Governments are lying about the Earth being round....how the hell do they make money off of that? How could saying that the planet is a certian shape give them money? I just dont get it.

2: The theory of there being an entire wall around the edge of the Earth is impossible. If it is true, how was it made? What possible geographic process made it happen?

And heres a quote that I found to be very anger inducing.
Q:  Follow-up to previous question:  How is it that the Earth does not have a gravitational pull, but stars and the moon do?

A:  This argument is a non sequitur.  You might as well ask, "How is it that snakes do not have legs, but dogs and cats do?"  Snakes are not dogs or cats.  The Earth is not a star or the moon.  It doesn't follow that each must have exactly the properties of the others, and no more.

Even if the Earth is flat, why the hell would it not obey the laws of Gravity, a thing that holds the entire god damn universe together? So what if a flat Earth is different from the stars or the moon, astroids and various other objects in space are different but gravity applies to them.

My response when hearing about this:  ::)
My response now:  >:(

Spelling corrections: arguments. theories. certain.

Anyways, even though I'm a RE'er, I'll give this a try. NASA makes billions of dollars yearly. Seems to me like a good reason to continue lying about the Earth. You know how much it would cost to recall and destroy globes? And then produce Flat Earth Maps? Way too much.

Remember, you can't prove FE'ers wrong by saying gravity holds the universe together. Gravity, to them, doesn't exist. Therefore you cannot use it to prove them wrong.

I can't answer 2, I'm not informed enough. Normal processes like on the RE, I'd assume.

The Earth is Flat.

This may be simply for you to answer, and may sound stupid. But nonetheless I'd like to have it cleared up.

The FE theory claims the Earth is moving upward in space, thus causing the sensation we RE'ers call Gravity. Wouldn't the plane, after takeoff, be slammed by the upward moving Earth if we were simply flying horizontal?

Seconded. I'd like to hear an explanation.

Here's your explanation: http://theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=23582.msg498769#msg498769


You gave a link back to the original post. Any amount of significant evidence you present for this argument would be astounding, as I can't think of how this would be possible in a Flat Earth.

There certainly is a "curve", but that image is quite frankly innappropriate. This is a family friendly site. Take your smut elsewhere.

Mr. Oscar Wilde, you yourself were not an appropriate man and therefore should not be on these forums. I wrote a paper, only 14 pages though, on you and your homosexual beliefs and lifestyles. I realize this really isn't you, as you died a "Catholic" many years ago, but reading this "family freidnyl" quote and then looking at your name created too much irony for me to pass up.

This is your warning.  Take the trolling elsewhere.


I don't find myself trolling anymore than the posts just around 6 above mine.

But, nonetheless I'll stop. My English Literature and historical side got to me, and I can't simply leave an incorrect statement be.

Back to the picture: I agree. I see a curvature, and there's not much to deny it that I've seen as of yet. I will respond again once suitable evidence against the curvature of the horizon of the picture has been presented.

The moment I read this, I had to respond.
