Flat Earth Debate / Evidence of the Conspiracy

Post your evidence here!

Flat Earth Debate / Can a mod please do something about Belivin?

He's like Mad_Catz, only worse.

Thank you.

Flat Earth Debate / The Almighty Sun
« on: June 05, 2007, 08:10:41 PM »
Hooray, more discussion! It was getting boring there for a while..

Okay, so I know that the FE sun is very small, and it revolves around some invisible thing up in the sky, but how exactly does it work?  Is it a disk, or more of a ball? Does just the bottom shine, or do the sides shine as well?  It seems that a lot of this talk about how the sun goes off onto the horizon is too vague since I don't fully understand the FE sun itself.  Diagrams are appreciated; telling me to read a book is not.

Flat Earth Debate / Polaris

I know it's been mentioned before, but the only answers have been vague references to perspective or something.  Why can't people in the south pole see Polaris?  MS paint action is appreciated.

Flat Earth Debate / Once again: how does the sun go down?
« on: June 03, 2007, 05:57:40 PM »
Because I find it particularly difficult to imagine the grand scale of things, I have taken the liberty of making a to-scale drawing of the flat earth.

The scale is 1 pixel = 8 miles. The blue line is the line of vision of someone at the equator on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun looking toward the sun during an equinox. These are the measurements I used, which I found in the FAQ:
Diameter of the Earth: 24,000 miles (3112.5 pixels)
Diameter of the Sun:   32 miles (4 pixels)
Distance to the Sun:   3,000 miles (375 pixels)

None of the measurements are off by more than a pixel or two, due to rounding.

I find it difficult to understand how the sun would appear to even approach the horizon, let alone go beneath it.

Any (serious) answers?

Flat Earth Debate / Experiment #8

Here's a link:

This experiment proposes that if the Earth were round, then the horizon when looking out onto the ocean would be curved?  I was taking your references of this book as some kind of evidence for a flat Earth, but honestly?

Flat Earth Debate / Perspective of the sun
« on: June 03, 2007, 09:19:34 AM »
FE'ers believe the sun never goes down 'below' the Earth; it just gets further away causing this effect.  I can understand that if something gets far enough away, it might be obscured by hills or something, and get really small, and perhaps appear as if it has gone 'below' the Earth.  But this raises a question: If the sun does just get further away (far enough away to make the half the earth seem completely dark), why does it always appear the same size in the sky?

Flat Earth Debate / The space station

I did a search and didn't see any specifics..

Is this part of the conspiracy?  I've seen it before..

Flat Earth Debate / Pictures!
« on: June 02, 2007, 05:09:20 PM »
Can someone explain/draw a diagram of how eclipses work according to FE theory?

And also, can someone elaborate of the overall shape of the universe in relation to the blanket of dark energy below us?  Does all of the universe rest on it, or does it just push on us?  How do other galaxies work in relation to it? And what keeps everything not on the dark matter moving?  And lastly, what keeps the dark energy accelerating?

Flat Earth Debate / It looks that way up close, eh?

Image from a commercial jet (at approx. 33,000 ft.):

And another thing: what do you have to say about earthquakes, and all their glory?  We have mapped the inside of the earth by measuring how earthquakes travel from one side to the other at different speeds through magma and rock.
