Flat Earth General / Re: The Conspiracy
« on: November 17, 2010, 09:27:19 PM »
So, the only hypothesis of why there is a conspiracy I have seen here is that RET generates more research and exploration money than FET, but that this research and exploaration is a gigantic hoax: those who get the money put them in their own pockets. Is this correctly understood? Any more ideas?

No, it most likely has nothing to do with RET vs. FET.  They're probably just assuming that the world is round and fabricating evidence that supports that conclusion.
Agian, for the bajillioneth time: WHY?

They get money saying they're gonna explore RE and RE universe, thing that they don't do, but they keep the money.
I keep on trying to point out that thois illusion would be far too expansive, and if they did end up making a profit, it could not be enough of a payout to keep such a huge cover up going on. Is it's not profitable then why is it benifial to the conspirators?

Technology, Science & Alt Science / "light bulbs"?

I believe light bulbs are actually darkness absorbers! Instead of burning out they get "full" of darkness! You can test this by putting your hand under a light and see the darkness gather on the other side of your hand where you're blocking it from entering the absorber!

I think

their own gain

is a pretty good (and obvious) reason.
I have no words. There are no words. You. YOU. I. Really. My mind is blown. I can't. What. I. WHAT? How? What?





Sorry about that. to elaborate, I don't think you answered my question. "gain" isn't a thing.
Somebody answer me now. Why does this conspiracy exist? Answer me right now! Please?!
Not- Is the Earth Flat? or Why is the Earth Flat? I just want to know who benifits from this and in what way. It should be the first and most important part of FET

Not to backseat mod like a dick but we're kinda getting off topic aren't we?

Can an FEer please give the "official" consesnsus {if their is one) on who is behind this conspiracy and why it's worth the cost? Maybe I'm missing something that's been posted about a lot, but it's certainly not been given a real answer in this thread or my thread.


There is no 'official' answer. I believe the Conspiracy is a supra-governmental organisation which deceives people concerning the shape of the Earth for their own gain. Beyond that, I cannot say - it wouldn't be much of a conspiracy if I could.
Wouldn't you agree that the "why" is the mpost important part! If they don't have a reason to hide it, they probably wouldn't hide it!

I dont get it- in the FE model dosen't eveyrthing have to rotate around the eath? Does nobody understand the vastness of space and the sheer numbers of stars  that would need to spin around in circles above an insignificant rock ball? and why is it even flat? The moon is round, isn;t it? can't you tell by the phases of the moon that you can see from everywhere that its not just a cardboard cutout facing us?

I apologise, I just made a thread in the debate  forum on this same subject (well, practically) I probably should've checked first.

But I did just think of something- What about the discovery channel? I see documentaries about Antartica all the time- is everyone whose ever worked on nature documentaries "in" on it? Are they all being paid off too with this mystery money that's coming out of nowhere.

I'm actually kinda impressed by certain arguements here- the ones that involve math and complicated science that I could never understand, but this seems like a huge lapse in logic even for FEers. The earth is flat thus there must be a conspiracy coving it up?  So it dosen't actually matter to you why Or can nobody actually think of a good excuse here?

It doesn't look like the camera is moving, ergo...

or it's evidence the planet is moving?

Supposedly the motive of the conspiracy is money, but every intelligent analysis of the costs required to run such a conspiracy say that it would most likely not be able to turn much if any profit.

After all, they have only the budget of the various space agencies to work with and have to pay bribes,fake scientific data, and manage their day-to-day operatons, among other things.
Hey, did you know you're feastured on somethingawful.com's series weekend web? look for the Flat Earth article- looking at that article again got me to make this account.

Can't he work on his stupidity and ignorance on his own?
Okay, I've got to admit that's a pretty good zing.

-stupid thing to say seven pages later I notice But I always have to appreciate a good zinger.

Flat Earth General / "conspiracy" confusion
« on: November 06, 2010, 07:36:05 PM »
I have a few problems  with the "WHY?" aspect of FE. I'm no physics major, and I even suck at math, but I have a few questions that need to be answered.

Is that payout really that great? Is it worth it? I mean, millions must be "in" on this secret. Every map maker, every astro-scientist, every important goverment higher-up, every single person in Antartica who has seen the end of the earth. All around the world. Now, I've heard something a long time ago here about it having to do with NASA, but can the amount left over after making fake technology and fake satelites and those fake shuttles and that really well produced 70s movie, would there be enough to payoff everybody? I'll admit with so many people in on a secret if one person leaked it nobody would listen, but something like this shouldn't have been able to last for centuries, it sounds like a rather poorly implimented plan. And if that NASA theory is the official position as I think I remember it being- why does this conspiracy go back much longer than NASA? TL;DR: Whats the point of keeping flat earth a secret?

Is space research real? The inventions its lead to?
Whose in charge of this? The illuminati? The Knights Templar?  Freemasons? The NWO? A zombie Guy Fawkes?
Which other conspiracies are real? Just this one? If the shadow goverment is hiding this dosen't it lead to thoughts that they must be hiding more? Reptoids maybe?

This is one non-science problem that I don't think is answered on this site. You all probably are viewing this on a computer you own in a shelter that offers you  at least some comofrt and luxury. i'd go as far as to assume most FEers are happyily middle class. Maybe I'm just especcially apathetic, but if this is true, and there is an enormious campaign to hide the turth going on, whats it really matter? Does it really effect you in the slightest? I hear that it's believed NASA uses the conspiracy to hoard tax dollars, but how much of our taxes are going to NASA anymore anyway? Isn't it like 60% defense and then a lot of local shit like education? Is it an ethical issue? Do you really feel the need to be some knight of truth? I find this aspect simply kind of interesting.
