Flat Earth Q&A / How high is the sun?
« on: January 07, 2023, 01:28:44 PM »
Just curious as to whether there is any kind of consensus among flatists as to the altitude of the sun above the flat earth.

And, if so, how high is it and how has this height been determined?

Flat Earth General / 'Globe Lie' convention UK
« on: August 18, 2019, 02:07:18 AM »

13-15 September. Is anyone from here planning to go?

I'm thinking about dropping by. Very curious to see some genuine flat-earthists 'in action'. I suspect it may not always be easy to keep a straight face, but we'll see...

Flat Earth General / Flat Earth FC
« on: July 03, 2019, 08:36:14 AM »
Spanish football club renamed Flat Earth FC
It is yet to be seen if this name change will stand the test of time or will gain the club new followers from around the globe.

Only a small club but quite funny nonetheless.

Unlikely story a cheat I felt, our world view is different (4,5,7)

[ In today's Guardian (a UK newspaper). Link ]

NASA's Parker Solar Probe launches in about an hour.

Quite an exciting mission to put a probe into the sun's corona. Of course, with a trip of around 5,000 miles it should be there in no time...

Flat Earth General / Flat Earth vs. Chemtrails

From a tweet by The Economist:

Go FE!!

Technology, Science & Alt Science / Falcon Heavy First Test Flight

Planned for today 1:30pm ET US.

Far from guaranteed to be a success. Should be interesting.

Technology, Science & Alt Science / Soyuz MS-06 Launch

Soyuz about to headed off to the ISS if anybody's interested.


Apologies - this was a few days ago. My bad. Somehow thought it was live...

Technology, Science & Alt Science / In depth interview with Brian Cox
« on: February 09, 2017, 01:49:13 PM »
I know Professor Cox is very popular with many on these boards, so I thought I'd share this that I came across:

Apologies if this has been posted before. A search for 'Brian Cox' came up with ten pages that I didn't want to wade through.

Technology, Science & Alt Science / Hydrostatics question
« on: February 07, 2017, 02:30:44 PM »
I stumbled upon a question, as you do...
A piece of wood is floating in water kept in a bottle. The bottle is connected to an air pump. Neglect the compressibility of water. When more air is pushed into the bottle from the pump, the piece of wood will float with
(a) larger part in the water
(b) lesser part in the water
(c) same part in the water
(d) it will sink

It's said the official answer is (c). I'm leaning towards (b), although with only a slight effect. What do others think?

Flat Earth General / Ole RÝmer
« on: December 07, 2016, 01:30:35 AM »
So, today's Google doodle celebrates the 340th anniversary of Ole RÝmer's (somewhat approximate) determination of the speed of light by observing the eclipses of Jupiter's moon Io.

Is there a flat earth model under which this would have been possible - by which I mean not just the observations of Io, but also the application of the geometry of the solar system then to approximate the speed of light? Or was the hapless Dane fooled into thinking he was doing something he wasn't?

Clearly the product of many hours of dedicated research, The Intikam Map is an FE map like no other. What do people think? Is it the future for FET?

How did Super Mario manage this on a flat earth...?

Flat Earth General / NASA 'lies'
« on: May 31, 2016, 01:30:59 PM »
Quite often on these boards it's asserted or implicated that NASA tells lies.

Does anyone have any specific, concrete examples of NASA lying? By this I mean examples either of NASA admitting to falsehood, or of there being generally and authoritatively accepted evidence that contradicts what NASA has said.

I'm not asking for conspiracy theory kind of stuff, or people's opinions. Just proper evidence. Ideally there would be citations, both for what NASA has claimed and also for the contradiction.

Flat Earth General / Free Thinkers
« on: January 30, 2016, 01:25:57 PM »
The term "Free thinker" comes up quite a lot in this forum. So I was wondering...

Who here would describe themselves as a free thinker? And if so, what do you mean by that?

What is it that distinguishes someone who is a free thinker from one who is not?

I've been browsing this site for a couple of weeks with some fascination. I'm curious about the people who come here, and what they actually believe about the shape of the earth. Hence this poll. If it has been done before and recently, apologies. Genuinely honest answers are encouraged.
