Flat Earth Q&A / Why do Objects Fall?

 The FAQ says that objects simply fall. There isn't gravity. So why did objects fall then?

Flat Earth Q&A / What is the Sun?
« on: July 24, 2018, 04:23:50 PM »
If the sun is a spotlight, how does the sun work? If we assume that the sun is a giant ball of gas, it would shine light everywhere, and on a flat earth model this doesn't work. How does it only shine onto one spot? Why does the sun disappear at night? Even if it's night, we should still be able to see it.

Flat Earth General / Flat Earth Motive?
« on: July 24, 2018, 02:49:12 AM »
I have read the FAQ, but I have some questions regarding the motive people have to hide a flat Earth. One of the biggest, I think, was that a moon landing would be impossible with a flat Earth model.

If it really was a cover up, then I have a few issues with it. First, it seems that the USSR would have the most reason to disprove the moon landing. They didn't, so we can assume the moon landings happened, thus disproving this motive.

Furthermore, the USSR made it into space first. If the Earth was flat they'd announce it, but if they decided to keep it a secret, they could've used the flat Earth model to disprove the moon landings. Of course, we know they didn't.

The FAQ also mentions that this would destabilize the legitimacy of science and by extension our government. Personally, I agree with that statement, but I think it's important to realize that  this has already happened, but instead scientists "proved" the Earth round and religion was destabilized. If science is about learning from patterns, why would scientists do something that has already failed?

Taking money does seem like a fairly plausible reason. However, this has happened before, during the protestant revolution. Again, this didn't work out well for religion, so why would science choose to do the same thing?

If anyone knows what the truth of the bible is, please let me know.
