Flat Earth Debate / Coriolois effect
« on: November 08, 2013, 12:03:27 PM »
Here you go...someone demonstrating the coriolis effect. Southern hemisphere vs northern hemisphere and at the equator.

Flat Earth Q&A / Determining the shape
« on: November 05, 2013, 12:17:10 PM »
How did FET determine the shape of the earth? I mean FET says it is flat. That much is obvious, but why say it is a disc...could it not be a triangular or a square, a hexagon or something else? Why a disc?

Flat Earth Q&A / calculations

How did the FET calculate the distance to the sun, stars, planets and the moon?

Flat Earth General / RET contradictions?
« on: November 02, 2013, 04:48:51 PM »
What contradictions did you find in the RET?  which made you think...there has to be a flat earth!

I do not mean NASA is fake and that kind of stuff. Also not that the earth looks flat from up close. What theory of the round earth is contradicting itself?

For example, the FET there are plenty of examples in which it contradicts itself (thus the earth can't be a flat earth), but all of that aside...

What is the contradiction in RET?

Flat Earth General / Compass heading
« on: November 01, 2013, 09:00:55 AM »
Alright, so up here at the Northern Hemisphere the compass points to the north. Crossing the equator it points to southpole. This is problematic, since there is no southpole on a flat earth.

Can you FE defenders accept the earth has to be a sphere now? If not, explain how this would work then on a flat earth...

Flat Earth Debate / One vs one debate

Ok, I want to discuss the FET one on one. Who of the FE people dares to take the stage?

Flat Earth General / Round-earth questions
« on: October 27, 2013, 10:11:40 AM »
If you have any questions about the round earth, why you question it, this is the thread to ask your questions. I will be more than happily to answer them and I am confident enough to answer them all.

Flat Earth General / Selfstudy
« on: October 27, 2013, 09:33:45 AM »
Hi there,


Please watch this video. Starting at 0:17 and onwards. #ws" class="bbc_link" target="_blank">Crater Lake: Day to Night - Time Lapse
Not only does it show that the moon is a sphere, it also shows that the stars move around like if being watched from a sphere.

Look at the stars and from the point they become visible above the horizon. They move up and to the right, following a circular path around. This shows we're living on a sphere.

Other then that. If you have ever watched the nature around you, ever noticed that higher points can still receive sunlight, while lower sections do not? Like this photo right here. https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRDXa2iPufm6rIa4feZ7MIt0Ko96Ec2jwBCvhKr_cyoJiKAOmrm

Flat Earth General / NASA conspiracy
« on: August 06, 2013, 07:51:00 AM »
How could you still think that NASA cannot go to space, since pretty much all the things they do are publicly available?
Take for example the space shuttle launches. Thousands of people have witnessed these launches.

There are hundreds of videos from these launches.

How could you still persist we humans can't go to space?

There are just too much videos to post them all here. Just google them...

Flat Earth Q&A / The moon
« on: August 06, 2013, 02:52:19 AM »
Why does the moon look like this near the equator?


The source says that the photo is taken at a place not far from the equator.In this case in North Queensland.
http://readerwil.blogspot.nl/2012/02/sky-watch-moonshadow-by-cat-stevans.html

As also described on the blog, the moon takes a more vertical shape like ), or (
This is also which I have seen, travelling around the world.

It corresponds with a spherical earth. You can test this too, using the picture. Sit straight behind your computer. You see the moon as it is in the picture above. Now tilt your head sideways, at an angle. This simulates you being at (for example 45 degrees north, or 45 degrees south). You notice the moon has taken a more vertical shape from your new point of view. It corresponds with the roudness of the earth.


It is impossible to achieve the same result on a flat earth. Could we agree here that the earth is a sphere?

Flat Earth Q&A / Take two
« on: August 01, 2013, 03:45:21 PM »
Can you imagine a sphere so big, that if you would stand on its surface, it would actually look flat? If you can't imagine that, I can see why you can't see why the earth is round.

Thing is. I am never going to see the earth from a distance, but I got all the evidence which supports the fact we're living on a spherical earth I need my imagination to see how it would be all possible while still considering all observations, and it all is possible.
I can see how a giant sphere can appear flat, but is in fact still a sphere.

I asked this question to the flat earth believers on a serious note. I saw my question got moved  to the complete nonsense section for presumably no reason. I'll ask just once and one time only to the moderator to take my question seriously. I am taking you seriously, but if you treat me like that....you'll lose all the credibility you have for me! One good turn deserves another!

That being said, I will be looking forward to a serious discussion.

Flat Earth General / Balloons
« on: July 18, 2013, 02:39:05 AM »
In another topic this idea has been mentioned of using balloons. Tom Bishop already pointed out a website of MIT students who launched a balloon for only $150 to capture the curvature of the earth, (as said on the website)
Quote
"The two students (from MIT, of course) put together a low-budget rig to fly a camera high enough to photograph the curvature of the Earth."
. The website http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2009/09/the-150-space-camera-mit-students-beat-nasa-on-beer-money-budget/

Obviously, he pointed to the photographs, which he just blindly looks at it and sees a flat disc. Really poor research. He is not taking into account the photo is taken at an angle and from that perspective it is extremely difficult to see a curvature.

Tom Bishop already said about these high altitude photos
Quote
But we do not discount what is observed at the edge of space by high altitude balloons, launched by entities unconnected to NASA
The simplest method to check if there is a curvature is to flip the photo to a more horizontal perspective. That is what I did. Then I drew a horizontal line and it becomes very clear that there is a curvature. Here is the same picture, except rotated 40 degrees clockwise with a white horizontal line.

I don't expect you to explain it, this is too obvious. It would take a load off my mind if you would just agree with me. We're living on a spherical earth.

Flat Earth General / Summer/Winter
« on: July 15, 2013, 03:06:32 PM »
Beside my other post, about viewing distances, here is another thing that could only correspond with a spherical earth.

The fact that the days are longer in summer than in winter. If the earth was flat, the sun cannot possibly lit up the southern hemisphere as it does with the northern hemisphere. As usual, I will be looking forward to hearing an explanation.

Flat Earth Q&A / Plane and view
« on: July 13, 2013, 05:16:43 AM »
From any higher altitude you would be able to see so much further than from a lower altitude. This is contradicting the earth being flat. How could you explain this to yourself, using just common sense?

The Lounge / Introduction
« on: July 13, 2013, 04:04:11 AM »
Hi there,

Let me introduce myself. When I first heard about the flat earth society, I thought it must be a joke, untill I actually came here.
Of all the conspiracy theories I heard about, I find this one the most intriguing, because for me, there is nothing in my mind which questions the shape of the earth.
Looking outside and we see a flat earth, but the sheer size of the earth causes it to look flat. If we'd only take the airplane, when we are at high altitudes, we can see so much further than if you're standing on the ground. That is quite proofing for me.
Furthermore there are all the scientists, whose work is always checked and can be checked by almost anyone.
I don't see how the shape of the earth would still go undetected. What would be the reason to lie about something as simple as the shape of the earth anyway?
