Flat Earth Q&A / Attention
« on: October 21, 2006, 01:37:22 PM »
This community does not revolve around the singular idea that the FE'ers are trying to prove that the Earth is flat.  They already know the Earth is flat, so there is no use in trying to convince them otherwise.  Since FE is the huge countertheory to RE, it is most likely that they came to the conclusion themselves rather than indoctrined in this belief.

While I cannot say that they do not wish to "convert" RE'ers to FEism, I can say that it is not the purpose of this forum to do so.  It is merely a discussion forum.

FE'ers have absolutely no obligation to answer any of your challenges.  They do, however, from time to time answer questions, and it is very nice of them to do so even though they aren't required to prove anything to anyone here.  It is unfortunate that this stance is often taken as either ignorance or rudeness.

This is something posters should keep in mind while posting in this forum.

I just noticed that Erasmus was promoted to Site Admin.

Dogplatter and 6strings were of course given Moderator awhile ago.

Thanks for aiding the community.

Does FE completely contradict the theory of gravity or is gravity a possible occurance on perhaps other celestial bodies (in which Earth would be an exception)?

The more I read the Qu'ran, the more I am convinced that those who live by it will be a constant threat to anyone who does not practice Islam.

While other monotheistic religions leave divine punishment up to their diety, the Qu'ran preaches of literally striking terror into the unbelievers (3:151).  Constantly I am told that I cannot have this viewpoint because it makes me a hypocrit in that I am not also condemning other religions.  I have to therefore ask:  "What good can come out of a religion in which the punishment for breaking the divine rulings is carried out by the people?"

This is not a radical view of Islam either!  This is what is presented.  It goes into great detail of how to treat your neighbor with peace and justice, but you then learn that your neighbor is someone who worships Allah.

I do not mean to offend any who practice this religion.  This is not my intention.  I wish to understand this religion more.

"And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who lead easy lives, but they transgress therein; thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction." (17.16)
