Flat Earth General / Who Gains?
« on: November 25, 2015, 11:14:05 AM »
Plenty of conspiracy theories exist to explain away evidence from space agencies: photos, GPS, etc.
These conspiracy theories are abundant, suggesting that governments, companies and space agencies conspire to prevent us from learning the "truth": that the Earth is flat.
But no one has explained why "they" would do this, or how "they" would gain. So I pose to you: who gains from a round earth? Why would they hid a flat earth from us?
Conspiracy theories like "Bush did 9/11" have legitimate, if outlandish, proposals behind them. Bush could have caused 9/11 because he wished to smash Hussein, or to get better control of Middle East oil reserves, however unlikely these are. But I have yet to see a legitimate explanation for WHY people would hide a flat earth. So fill in the blanks:

_________ would gain from a Round Earth because _____________

Can't be that hard, can it?

Flat Earth Q&A / Explain
« on: November 15, 2015, 01:43:20 PM »
Please explain several key factors as to why the Earth is flat
1. All the other objects in the universe are spheres, as shown by the rotation of key features across their surfaces, such as sunspots on the Sun, Valles Marineris on Mars, and the Great Red Spot on Jupiter. Why is the Earth special in this case? Why is it not a sphere like everything else?
2. Gravity would pull a Flat Earth into a sphere naturally, as it does to all other objects in the universe, such as protostars, where gravity is pulling clouds of hydrogen into a sphere. Again, why does this not happen on Earth? What makes the Earth so special?
3. Why is it impossible to travel in a straight line to circumnavigate the Earth?
4. Why do I lose time if I travel east, and gain time if I travel west?
