Flat Earth Debate / Of Iran and the Flat Earth Theory
« on: June 16, 2010, 05:03:22 AM »
Since scientific proof isnít something that FEarthers rely on, Iím gonna go ahead and use the same pseudo logical reasoning they love.

Iran is a muslim fundamentalist country. Iranian people have more faith in the coran than any they have in any other book.
Now the Coran argues those who doubt his power by saying: How I managed to flatten the earth.
Meaning how powerful was he by flattening the earth.

Over centuries, the explanation to this verse was as simple as it is written.
God is powerful, He flattened the earth.
And over those centuries claiming that verses had other meanings, was complete heresy and punished by death (awful death) since it was Allahís word and such powerful entities donít use metaphors.
Then by the arrival of science, fundamentalists were facing some serious threat and they began to loosen up by inventing some fucked up metaphorical meanings to the Coran.

The educational system in Iran teaches kids that the earth is round and that the verse meant that how Allah is such powerful that made the illusion to humans that the earth is flat when in fact it  is round.

In 2009, with the help of Russia, Iran was able to launch its first satellite named Omid (Hope in Persian) from its homeland.
Omid is a telecommunication satellite (at least as they claim) and is orbiting around the earth with the following coordinates:
Inclination   55.5į
Apoapsis   383.8 km
Periapsis   252.7 km
Orbital period   90.7 min

The following day of its launch the NASA, reluctantly, confirmed the missionís success and a storm raged between American anlysists over the seriousness of this potential threat.

Donít you think that the USAís enemy would take pictures proving that the earth is flat and that Allahís word was literally right and shove it up the Occidentís ass other than spending shit loads of money maintaining a ridiculous 27 kilograms cube in outer space?

I didn't know the existence of your Society untill few hours earlier and I'm a bit surprised that there are still people believing that the earth is flat in 2010.
Anyway, living in country among a minority that lives in a constant fear of having its ass kicked by an agressive stubborn majority, I'm not here to make your life more difficult. I just want to read some of your arguments
Also English isn't my native language so sorry in advance and you don't have to rub my face in it.
