Flat Earth General / Artemis Project
« on: July 25, 2019, 08:56:23 AM »
If the Artemis Project achieves its goal of placing a crew on the moon in the next 5 years or so, how is the FES going to view it?   Are they going to simply brush it off as yet another fake conspiracy? 

Flat Earth Q&A / Satellite Visibility
« on: April 10, 2019, 08:38:40 AM »
In the RE model, satellites are able to be seen long after sunset because they are at an altitude where the sun in still above the horizon at that location.  How does this work in the FE model?   If the sun were really a spotlight wouldn't the objects be in the dark and thus not visible?   Even if they are just balloons, etc. and are at a lower altitude how can they still reflect sunlight?   Please don't try to explain by saying they emit their own light.

Flat Earth Q&A / Mountains on the Moon
« on: March 25, 2019, 05:10:03 AM »
I have heard many flat earth folks claim that you cannot see mountains more than a couple of hundred miles away because air is not truly transparent.  If this were the only reason, then why can I clearly see mountains on the surface of the moon if it's 3000 miles away as you claim?   

Flat Earth Q&A / Comets

What is the latest flat earth explanation for comets?   I checked for old posts and they were all ten years ago.

Flat Earth Debate / Crater Shadows
« on: August 24, 2018, 10:05:07 AM »
This has probably been discussed before (I actually did search for it) but here goes.  If the moon is self illuminating as many believe, then why are there visible shadows from the mountains and in the craters?  They are easily seen with a telescope.  Wouldn't the surface show evenly distributed lighting if the light source was the moon itself?   The shadows correspond very well with a sunlit surface.

Flat Earth General / High Altitude Balloons
« on: May 23, 2016, 08:58:20 AM »
There is a group of High School students from Bishop California who regularly launch balloons to over 100,000 feet with a camera attached. (You can have them launch a small object to be photographed for $500)   The photos clearly show a curved horizon.  I've heard FE people claim that the photos are faked or the camera has a fisheye lens showing the horizon as curved.  My question is... Why doesn't the flat earth society launch their own balloon to show the horizon as flat?  It would certainly be cheaper than the proposed expedition to the ice wall that I read about earlier.
