Flat Earth Q&A / Flat dimension
« on: April 26, 2006, 03:41:51 AM »
Because it's pretty stupid to think that the whole universe revolves around us, what if everything in the whole universe was flat and side by side with a few thousand miles of things that look like stars inbetween, then opposite this are a complex series of mirrors so no matter where you are, you see exactly what you're supposed to, this would make more sense to me, although mirrors would be weird and pointless, perhaps simply the edge of it all is reflective.

planets at the bottom, lines are reflective (not realistic at all).

Say something that must be true because of something else, you can say things that prove amazing things or you could say things that prove things that you already knew, such as;

A flag is made of fabric,
You could say a flag belongs to a country,
My socks are also made of fabric,
So my socks must belong to my country,
I walk in my sock,
So I walk in my country.

These are supposed to be random, so don't say "but the second line was based on something not true", as long as it's true sometimes, it's ok to put it.

Flat Earth Q&A / Gravity?
« on: April 21, 2006, 10:09:35 AM »
Could somebody explain how gravity works on a flat earth?

On a round Earth, this is how it works;

As you may or may not know, every object has it's very own gravity, even you or me! The way this works is;

The gravity is weighed in newtons, the mass is weighed in kilograms and the distance is measure in metres and is measured from the direct centre of the masses of the objects.

Using this, something weighing 100 kilograms weighs about 900 newtons presuming they are in a place with an average altitude.
But this wouldn't work for a flat Earth because it's measured from the direct centre, so the further from the middle you are, the less gravity, and this is impossible as you would weigh diferent amounts in different places, I've weighed myself from my home (England) and on holiday (South of Brazil) and I weighed exactly the same, so it definately would work for FE.

if you were to answer roughly;
"because the Earth is constantly moving upwards, this means that when you drop something, it catches up to the Earth"
Then I could say;
"But movement is only relative, we are moving exactly the same speed upwards (when standing still) so when we jump, it's not like we suddenly stop moving relatively for no reason and hit the Earth again, it's impossible to suddenly lose the speed that you had while moving with the earth when you jump, there has to be a stronger and opposite force to bring you back down"
So don't bother asking that question (unless you can prove what I said wrong).

Thats all I can think of or now, and all I'd like to know is how the gravity works.
