Flat Earth Q&A / Why no satellites?
« on: April 14, 2006, 12:17:06 PM »
I'm curious about the FE ban on satellites and space travel in general. The only argument I can see is that, to accept the possibility of travel beyond out atmosphere, we would have to accept the associated "evidence" for the RE model. I, however, don't see how this is true.

What is to stop the governments of the world from having satellites in space for communication, GPS, television or what have you? What's more, why can't we have visited the moon, as the governments would have us believe? Any "evidence" of an RE model associated with these feats could easily be faked. In fact, what better way for the governments to convince us the earth is round, once and for all?

We've been to space, and we saw it; see, look at these pictures!

After all, wouldn't it be much easier to doctor up some photographs of earth from the perspective of space, than to fake the hundreds of space launches that have been witnessed in person by thousands?

Why do we have to discount the entire idea of space travel; why not just discount the easily-faked RE evidence it provides?
