« on: June 10, 2016, 11:55:55 PM »
Well we need to get behind this.

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/requesting-nasa-or-government-funded-science-agencies-respond-12-flat-earth-questions

If they get 100,000 signatures before July 1. The white house will look into the questions asked in this video.



Come on guys do you believe or not. Do you want answers or not? If you do then vote away, and spread the word.

Flat Earth Debate / Turning the wrong way at the ice wall
« on: June 03, 2016, 04:14:39 PM »
This post came up on my Facebook this morning.


Can someone help me here. In a FE discussion at a dinner party (not always a wise idea :P ) someone who is a CSIRO scientist asked me to explain how when viewing a FE map, to circumnavigate antarctica you would reach the ice and turn to port (left) and keep turning to port with the ice on your starboard (right hand) side for a very very very long distance.

However he says he has been on a ship that went around antarctica, they kept the ice on their right (same) but they kept turning to starboard (the right) all the way back to the starting point which was South of Tasmania.

I was a bit out of my depth on how to rebutt this. Can anyone explain in clear English with no links or images so I can recreate it?



That is a really good point, if the Earth was flat and you kept the ice to your right, you should be constantly turning left, but that doesn't happen.

On a globe Earth you would constantly turn right, which is what happens.

Flat Earth Debate / Iridium flares
« on: January 16, 2016, 08:00:18 PM »
Ok the satellite thread went the way of GPS.

Can we keep this thread on just Iridium flares.

A good example is something like this.

This is something you can easily see for yourself, if you can be bothered stepping outside and looking up.

What are these if not satellites?

Flat Earth General / Why are the churches globe Earth?
« on: December 28, 2015, 11:32:18 PM »
I have explained flat Earth to some religious friends and family of mine, and they all look at me like its crazy talk.

I mean if it could be proven that the Earth was flat, the sun and moon were only 3000 miles away. That there was a dome covering the planet that had lights on it to show the stars. That we are the true center of the Universe. It would show a created world just for us.

I mean I would convert and believe in God tomorrow. It would help the churches out to no end. They would stand to make a lot more money, from more donations from converted people.

So why are churches globe Earth?

Flat Earth Debate / Jessica Watson
« on: December 16, 2015, 02:36:12 PM »
Ok I did do a search for her, and the posts seem to be 5 years old, and not ask the question I'm about to ask anyway.

The Equator is roughly 40,000 KM. When she sailed around the South Pole, she traveled only 34,400 KM.

How is it possible on a flat Earth map, that sailing around the South Pole gives a shorter distance than the Equator?

Flat Earth Debate / Sunspots prove global Earth
« on: November 26, 2015, 01:37:51 PM »
Ok I do a bit of astronomy. Got an 8 inch dob. I also use the space weather site, they have images of the sun with sunspots on there. So I pulled out my scope and had a look at the sun through the telescope (sun filter ofcourse) But the image I saw didn't line up with the one I saw on the site. Then it dawned on me, I'm in the Southern Hemisphere, I'm on a different angle.

If your near the north pole, you will see the sun right side up, and sunspots travel left to right. But at the equator your at a 90 degree angle, now the sunspots are traveling top to bottom. Near the south pole the sunspots travel right to left. Because as you go around the globe your angle of the sun changes.

On a flat earth model, if everyone took a photo of the sun at the same time, north, equator, south, the sunspots would all have the same orientation, but they don't.
