Flat Earth General / So, we're agreed then...
« on: May 09, 2011, 11:18:42 AM »
The Earth is a large globe in a heliocentric solar system, gravity exists and its populated by human beings, not dinosaurs, who inhabit a thing called the "internetz" and obstinately argue against anything that's already proven.

Job done, where's the next troll site.

Flat Earth General / The Conspiracy...

You realise you're all doomed?

I'd just shut down the site before the Illuminati find you and turn you all into satanic goats. Damn NASA and their evil cohorts.

Flat Earth Q&A / Gravity, or the lack of it.
« on: May 05, 2011, 12:57:27 AM »
On my "creation" thread, one of your number said that not all FE'ers believe in universal acceleration? So I have two questions.

1. If your UA theory is right, where is the energy coming from? You can't persistently accelerate for billions of years (let's drop the 9000 year idiocy right now, you will lose, unless you start telling everyone "it's a conspiracy" again) without an energy source. So what is it? It can't be equivalent to comet motion because comets only accelerate when caught in a gravity well and lose much of that speed as they escape, returning to their original velocity. And you claim Earth isn't in orbit around anything and the entire universe is accelerating at the same rate.

2. If UA is wrong and Earth does have gravity, how can a disc have universal gravity across it's surface. Gravity is affected by mass and the greater concentration of mass at the centre would result in greater effect of gravity. The edge of the disc would see the water, ice and atmosphere leak into space. In fact, the Earth would be dead as all the atmosphere would already have leeched into space long ago.

And that's before we even start on the whole how can you keep accelerating without breaking Einstein's rule of never travelling faster than light, and you guys love quoting Einstein, though seem to have less of a grasp over basic physics, because neither of the above theories is possible unless your theory is complete nonsense. After all, at 9.8m/s/s, it only takes 354.063277 days to reach light speed from a standing start....

Flat Earth Q&A / What is the origin of the flat Earth?
« on: May 04, 2011, 04:33:55 PM »
As above. How did it form, how did the solar system form around it, what caused it to fly through space accelerating as it goes? What is it's purpose? RE has a complete and plausible formation theory within the heliocentric solar system, but what caused a 9000km deep disc to randomly form, have planetary bodies orbit it despite a lack of gravity, and how can a 32 mile diameter sun maintain it's heat for 13.7 billion years?

Flat Earth Q&A / Magnetic poles?
« on: May 04, 2011, 11:08:22 AM »
The Earth's magnetic field is generated due to it's iron core rotating around a central axis running between the magnetic north and south poles. Without this rotation, there would be no magnetic field, correct? Or did I miss another amusing section of the FAQ while I was laughing out loud? Did NASA dig up the surface of the planet, shove a bunch of magnets under there and run off before anyone noticed?

Flat Earth Q&A / Why can't I see Norway?
« on: May 04, 2011, 10:52:34 AM »
It's a beautiful clear day, I'm up in the Pentland Hills, 400 feet above see level, 190 miles to the East is Norway, whose highest westerly point should be around 8,000 feet and nothing lies in between, but I can't see it. There's no sea fog nor a cloud in the sky. Not with the naked eye, not with binoculars and not with a telescope. Explain it to me, without the kind of pseudoscience and gobbledegook present in your FAQ.

Speaking of clouds in the sky, why do uniformly dense layers of cloud appear to touch the horizon? If the Earth is flat, they should recede into the distance without ever coming into contact, visibly, with the Earth, much like a child's painting. If only high layers of Cirrus are present in the view, at a known height of around 10,000-25,000 ft, this picture should be impossible:



But there they are, touching the horizon.

And not like this:



As FES would have us think.

Flat Earth Q&A / He must have been going some.....
« on: May 04, 2011, 10:37:34 AM »
Interesting site you have here. I do hope none of you are actually serious about the theories in the FAQ, but very funny nonetheless.

Just wondered if any of you could offer me an amusing theory on this:

http://yachtpals.com/boating/antarctica-boats

A non-military yacht race around what you would call the Ice Wall (we normal people prefer Antarctica, it has a nicer ring to it) in 102 days. Given the diameter of your FES disc theory, the poor bloke has had to sail at an average speed of 28 knots for 102 days without sleep or rest to accomplish it. Good job the guards on the towers didn't see him, or him them. Given that the very best yacht racers can usually only achieve 8.3knots (around 200 miles a day), I think this man should be awarded some kind of medal from your site........or you're all wrong.
