Flat Earth Q&A / My official resignation
« on: November 07, 2006, 06:57:27 PM »
I have decided that I no longer have the time nor the willpower to continue to be a member of these forums.  There is no convincing FEers, and college is very demanding.  If anyone ever says, "where's fathomak?" just tell them I was killed on the adventure of Victorian proportions or something of the like.  Good day.

Whilst thou solveth this equation?

a^2 - a = 0

Tryeth as thou mighteth, thou shalt not solveth, as 'a' doth not representeth any ordinary variable, but an element of a ring.  So ha.

Flat Earth Q&A / Just a note...

The laws of physics are the same for everything in the round earth model.

In the flat earth model, the earth, sun, moon, stars, etc. are all accelerating upwards by some mysterious force, while objects on the surface are not (hence why we return to the surface when we jump).  The gravitational model doesn't work either (the earth is a huge cylinder), unless the sun, moon, stars etc. don't respond to the gravity, or are suspended from a ceiling by strings, or something along those lines.

Flat Earth Q&A / Sun, moon, optical illusions?

Q: "What about the stars, sun and moon and other planets? Are they flat too? What are they made of?"

A: The sun and moon, each 32 miles in diameter, circle Earth at a height of 3000 miles at its equator, located midway between the North Pole and the ice wall. Each functions as a "spotlight," with the sun radiating "hot light," the moon "cold light." As they are spotlights, they only give light out over a certain are which explains why some parts of the Earth are dark when others are light. Their apparent rising and setting are caused by optical illusions.


Could someone please explain how this optical illusion works?  I don't quite understand the physics of magic.

Flat Earth Q&A / Moon issues...

I suppose the same would go for the sun.  You'll have to link to the picture to see what I've done, as there are a lot of diagrams that are needed to help explain what is being done.  Please forgive the crudeness and size of the image; I went through it very quickly (though it still took a while).  You'll probably notice the text got smaller as I went along.

This is basically taking note of the apparent sizes of the moon as viewed from two different perspectives on the flat earth, and how they conflict with what is actually observed.  I've read the FAQ, and I understand (at least I think I do) the optical illusion thing, but please read anyway, and feel free to ask any questions, as some of what I did may seem weird or vague.
