Flat Earth General / Questioning the validity of photographic evidence
« on: January 18, 2015, 09:12:56 PM »
Is use of photographs as evidence acceptable here? It seems like it is often used to support both sides of the issue. For instance, an FE'er might post a photo showing that earth's curvature can't be seen from certain heights, like an airplane. A RE'er might post a photo from space showing that the earth looks like a ball. Each of them would be accepting their own provided photograph but denying the validity of the other's. Obviously photos can also be edited or doctored. So is photographic evidence used to prove a point in any way valid?

Flat Earth Q&A / sideways rocket
« on: November 04, 2013, 10:01:17 PM »
So we know that as we approach the edge of the Earth the temperatures get colder and colder. I don't think we know exactly how cold it canget, but would there be, assuming no limits to resources, a way to figure that out? Could you create a very powerful rocket fillled with a gas that condenses into liquid at excessively low temperatures, something basic even like nitrogen, and fire it in any sideways direction, preferably close to Antarctica? With the proper measuring devices on the rocket we would be able to figure out at what point the temperatures got cold enough to freeze the nitrogen.

Disclaimer: This is a thought-experiment, I'd like to assume the creation of such an experiment is possible and the necessary recording and measurement devices exist and don't measure error.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Godwin's law
« on: December 13, 2012, 12:14:17 PM »
I would argue that some of the most evil men in history were the most intelligent. I havnt got acces to names at the moment but their are many. But we all no your views rushy they are right hear on this thread for everyone to see.

It is a common misconception that doing evil or manipulating people requires "cunning" or "intelligence." Manipulating others to get ahead is easy and requires very little thought, while purposely conditioning yourself not to do so requires discipline and intelligence. It is instinct to step on other people, it is the way of evolution. It takes an intelligent person to conciously refrain from doing so.

I'm starting to grow off topic as nothing of this is even remotely relevant to the original argument. Do you have any other questions regarding space vehicle accidents and why they are actually necessary to a good fake program?

If you study hitler's war strategies you will see that he was in reality very smart. The atrocities he commited were horrible, but everything he did was efficient, it was well thought out, and it, to some extent, worked. That is the reason it took so long to defeat him. A foolish general wouldn;t have been able to cause WWII and execute a genocide which killed 11 million.

The Lounge / Punch? TV?

THis is a lounge. Can we get a punch bowl or a TV in here? Sitting and talking is often worse without some snacks and a football game on.

Flat Earth General / auroras
« on: December 09, 2012, 08:18:58 PM »
AHy do auroras, like we see in the north and the south of th world, happen in FET? and why do they occur only in the northern or southern hemispheres?

« on: December 09, 2012, 12:45:10 PM »
A response to the list of flaws in RET

1: Eclipses

2: Neutrinos

3: Distances in southern hemisphere

4: Reliance on religious principles to support theories

Feel free to add more!

Flat Earth Q&A / What happens when i go to Antarctica?
« on: December 06, 2012, 07:21:21 AM »
If I go to antarctica, what happens? WHy do I not find an Ice wall, or why can I just walk(or snowmobile) across the whole cntinent and come out on the other side

Flat Earth Q&A / Solar Eclipses
« on: December 04, 2012, 05:41:19 PM »
How do these things even work? Is there an Anti-Sun? or are there biolumisescent organisms ther too?

Flat Earth Q&A / What I've heard regarding the antimoon is inconsistent
« on: November 17, 2012, 09:08:18 PM »
 So I've heard whilst making numerous inquiries regarding the mysterious anti-moon is that it can't be seen aside from lunar eclipses because the sun it hiding it with its light. However, this seems inconsistent. If the anti-moon is close to the sun, how can it be there to block out the moon even at night, where the sun's path is nowhere near?

Flat Earth General / Zetetic? I think not.
« on: November 17, 2012, 08:51:29 PM »
The FES is a purely zetetic society... or so they claim. You see, the purpose of zeteticism, at least as far as the wiki is concerned, says that they don't make hypotheses, but instead only believe things they can observe and verify on their own. Now, a whole lot of  FET, for instance the antimoon, the celestial gears, the ice wall, the conspiracy, these are all just guesses. The theory falls apart unless these are ture so it is assumed that they are. Effectively, you have just made some hypotheses and are ye to test them. Isn't zeteticism the opposite of that?

Flat Earth Q&A / Antarctica mapping
« on: November 17, 2012, 03:53:36 PM »
Lots of people go to antarctica. You can go in expeditions to the south pole and antarctica yourself. Is everybody that's ever claimed to have boon there a part of the conspiracy? Because that's like hundreds, probably thousands of people.

Hey guys, I just realized i have been spending way too much time arguing with conspiracy theorists on a pointless topic that each side is certain its won. What should I do? :-[ ??? :'( :-[ ??? :'( :o :-X :-\ :'( ???

Flat Earth Q&A / HOw does the day and night cycle in antarctica work?
« on: November 07, 2012, 06:52:35 PM »
I don't know how credible this source is, but I am sure there are more like it.

http://www.amnh.org/education/resources/rfl/web/antarctica/s_cycles.html

How does FET respond to this kin of thing happening? what explains a point being illuminated for an entire revolution of the sun?

Flat Earth Q&A / Climates
« on: November 07, 2012, 02:39:36 PM »
Why do some areas have different climates than others? I know in RET this is attributed to the proximity and angle of it to the sun at certain times, but I do not know the specifics. How do climates work in FET? WHy is brazil hotter than Canada?

Flat Earth Q&A / No gravity at all or just a little gravity?
« on: November 03, 2012, 08:33:03 PM »
Is there no gravity in the universe at all, or just the gravity is not responsible for the force which sticks us to the earth's surface.

Flat Earth Q&A / Infinite or not?
« on: November 02, 2012, 10:25:59 PM »
Can we for this article just a ssume the earth is flat, so we can stay on topic? I don't personally believe this, but arguing the FE vs RE is not the idea of the question.

I have heard that the force keeping the sun, moon, stars, and satellites like the ISS in some sort of weird flat "orbit" above us is the swirling of UA around the edges of earth. If the earth is an infinite plane, then the UA can't swirl, because it would have nowhere to flow around. It would be like with a finite earth you are putting your hand into a current, and if you do it right you can get stuff to float behind your hand in the eddie created, but that doesn't work if my hand is infinitely large.

Flat Earth General / RET origin?
« on: October 30, 2012, 07:22:37 PM »
If it is so obvious to anybody that the earth is in fact flat, then how did we end up with an incredibly elaborate scheme of conspiracies and bad science which made us believe so strongly thtat it was round?

In otherwords, how did so man people create such a strong foundation on the backs of such a wrong principle?

Flat Earth Q&A / Moon's phases
« on: October 30, 2012, 08:48:36 AM »
How do the phases of the moon work?

If the moon and the sun are both flat discs or both very small, then how does the light form the sun reach the moon and illuminate only half of it?

The FAQ is very light on the subject of this. Can anybody elaborate?

Flat Earth Q&A / Formation of the earth
« on: October 27, 2012, 09:02:54 PM »
This could beanswered really easily. How does FET believe the earth was originally formed? A disk seems to be an unlikely shape to occur randomly in the universe unless perhaps it was spinning at a very high speed.

27
Flat Earth General / How des one begin to believe in the FET?
« on: October 25, 2012, 07:35:34 PM »
I am sure this has been asked before, but were you just born believing in the FET and then found a website of people like you/ Did you run into something that made you believe?

If the latter is true? WHAT IS IT????

I am sure you would like to convince others that FET is true. So tell me why do you believe?

I have been trying to get this anwer for a long time and nobody can tell me.

28
Flat Earth General / Origin of FET
« on: October 25, 2012, 06:30:14 PM »
Where did FET come from?

Did somebody just think "What if the earth is actually flat after all" and convinced a bunch of people?

Has it simply persisted from the middle ages with some conspiratorial renovations?

How did it come about that the FES was formed?

On a side note, when was it that you decided to believe the earth was flat? If there is evidence that convinced you, then I bet it can convince me.

Flat Earth Q&A / Dinosaurs
« on: October 25, 2012, 06:08:31 PM »
So what of the dinosaurs? They obviously lived, so what killed them? It could not have been a meteor as RET states, because those do not exist.

Flat Earth Q&A / Why is the earth different?
« on: October 24, 2012, 06:56:25 PM »
I have seen numerous posts claiming that the earth behaves differently than other celestial bodies because it was "designed differently", or it is just "different".

I don't understand what this means.

Is the Earth the only one of these special planets?

What do FE'ers consider the size of the universe?

Also, if the earth was created or designed differently than other bodies, then is the flat earth theory just a modified version of creationism?

Does this mean that FE'ers are just religious people? I have heard that there are agnostics and atheists who believe that the earth is flat. How is this so?
