Flat Earth Debate / After 150 years...
« on: December 11, 2007, 09:06:31 AM »
After 150 years since Rowbotham, I was just wondering what new theories FE people have proposed since. E.G. formation of the earth. How an Ice wall came to form. In fact...does any FE person on this website actually conduct research into anything or is it just arguing?

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Free Will Vs Determinism

Free Will Vs Determinism...

What are you thoughts??

If free will is to choose, then a choice is from options and choosen based on desire for a result. And so desire is to foresee the future. But free will is desire. Then desire has to be chosen? But how can you choose desire??

Flat Earth Q&A / Round or Flat...
« on: February 12, 2007, 04:47:12 PM »
Ok, from now on I shall not being from the point of view of RE'er, I will be simply asking questions about what each theory does not seem to suggest to me.

First question. Does the moon have rocks and dust on it's surface? If so, why would they not have fallen by now? FAQ says that the moon has a slight gravitational field. What would exempt the earth from that?

As I argued in my moon craters thread, it seems quite apparent that the moon is a sphere of some sort. In light of this, I ask what shape is the atmosphere? If it is rounded, what would make is so? If the athmosphere is rounded, could the other side of the earth not also be rounded with us living on a flattened middle (an eliptical/oval shape if you like). Like a cirle with a fat middle, strethced.

Also, what would stop earth's atmosphere being blown, in a sense, if it had no gravity in which to hold it? A magnetic field could not hold.

Thanks for some sort of clerification

I must admit this has become website has become rather a favourite of mine....

Is it possible to create a philosophy section?

Cheers!

Sorry, not sure if this is the right place to post it, but I didn't know where else to post such a suggestion.

Flat Earth Q&A / Proof of non FE rotating at least...
« on: February 11, 2007, 04:24:39 PM »
As I've seen there are some FE'ers some believe it's the eath rotating and some that sun and moon are the ones.

As we know...either the earth is rotating at a 1000mph or that the sun is moving at 1000mph in a cirle above the equator.

If the earth was rotating at a 1,000mpg, wouldn't everything be flung to the edge of the earth just like how you are on fairground rides?

Flat Earth Q&A / G-Forces

G-Forces?

Why do you feel heavier then when taking off in a plane if there was no gravity?

Flat Earth Q&A / Helicopters
« on: February 11, 2007, 02:54:50 PM »
Would helicopters' blades really need to spin that fast once they get up into the air if the is rushing up at them to help them spin?

Flat Earth Q&A / Moon craters??
« on: February 11, 2007, 08:00:38 AM »
I'm assuming FE'ers believe that the face of the moon we see it the bottom of it??

If its the bottom of it, could FE'ers explain as to why it has craters on the bottom of it if the Earth is in the way?

Flat Earth Q&A / The sun - Flat Disc??
« on: February 11, 2007, 06:51:27 AM »
If the sun was a flat disc with a diameter of 32miles?

Would this not only illuminate a circulated area on the earth with a diameter of 32miles?

Flat Earth Q&A / What illuminates the other planets?
« on: February 11, 2007, 06:11:41 AM »
If the sun is a spotlight to us on earth. Then the earth is illuminated.

But the sun is a flat disc correct?

So what illuminates the other planets then?

Flat Earth Q&A / How did the moon come to be?
« on: February 11, 2007, 05:34:44 AM »
Hi there..

I'm just curious as to what FE'ers think about how the moon came to be. And how long it's been around/above the earth or whatever.

Cheers.

Flat Earth Q&A / My Satellite TV
« on: February 10, 2007, 09:53:08 AM »
Ok...satelite TV.

satellite TV receives sigals a stationary poistioned satellite in the sky. That's what RE'ers are led to believe. You could argue that it just masts that relay signalds.

Yet..all satellite dishes on all the houses in england are facing the same direction. FE'ers would argue that again masts are relaying these signalds. But the are they?

These masts would have to be massively tall for them to recieve the same signal in a straight line of sight.

FE's could argue that there are a lot masts, but the satellites dishes all face the same direction? There is no clear line of sight.

I live on the south coast of england, if I walk south towards where my satellite dished is faced I would hit the beach in a minute and that after of course is the English channel (the sea). How can a mast be built on sea? Why would we not see if it is boppin up and down on the sea if it's afloat.

FE'ers could argue because of atmopsheric distortion. Yet I see no masts of a massively tall nature bobbing/bopping (dunno how to spell that) when I fly over the english channel.

I'm curious as to why this is FE'ers

Flat Earth Q&A / The FE'ers
« on: February 10, 2007, 07:30:29 AM »
Are all the FE's on this american?

Just seems interesting how this belief seems to be only a western thing, and more of an american thing.

Flat Earth Q&A / Teminal Velocity?
« on: February 09, 2007, 05:33:28 PM »
When terminal velocity is reached by a sky diver, does he not essential become static in spacetime as its the earth rushing towards him?

Flat Earth Q&A / Falling objects?
« on: February 09, 2007, 05:27:43 PM »
Why does a shuttle cock fall to the ground heavy side first if there was no gravity?

What causes a shooting star. Just outta curiousity.

Creation....

How was the earth formed?

I tried serching for it on the forum, but I couldnt find much.

Thanks for info.

Flat Earth Q&A / Proof
« on: February 08, 2007, 05:42:21 PM »
At the north pole as the earth rotates, stars appear to rotate around you. This, would support FE.

But as is observed, by myself in England and those on the equator and what have you, the stars do not roate around you. They move over you.

This would suggest RE.

Also, FE can't explain why you can only see certain constellation in the North Hemisphere and some in the south Hemisphere, RE can.

Flat Earth Q&A / Who is FE's leading expert?
« on: February 08, 2007, 11:38:17 AM »
Are there any books, recent, published about FE an a known FE leading expert?

Quite curious to hear a serious argument for it, as opposed to Tom Bishop's half arsed reponses.

Flat Earth Q&A / 12hours of Darkness?
« on: February 08, 2007, 11:35:40 AM »
How can half the world be in darkness?

By 12hours, I mean 24hrs in a day. So half the world is in darkness at any given time.

Flat Earth Q&A / Does light shine in a straight line?
« on: February 08, 2007, 10:50:57 AM »
In the title really.

I'm just curious...does light shine in a straight does it spread out? But if so, why doesnt a laser beam?

thanks for help

Flat Earth Q&A / GPS satellites???
« on: February 07, 2007, 07:49:56 PM »
How do they work then?

What about google earth? I don't think they flew around the earth taking pictures.

Flat Earth Q&A / What about Stickys??
« on: February 07, 2007, 05:32:46 PM »
If you ask to refer to the FAQ and to search everytime us RE's post a question, which the FAQ does not answer, why not create sticky's on subjects?

Or maybe delte this from FAG...

Flat Earth Q&A / Solar eclipses

As a skeptic of Flat Earth...

I am interested to know the explanation how Solar eclipses occur.

Cheers!

Flat Earth Q&A / Hi. I'm new and a skeptic.
« on: February 07, 2007, 01:14:52 PM »
Hello there.

I'm new here and new to the flat earth theory. I thought this debate was settled quite a few centuries ago.

Anyway, admittedly I've not read too much into the arguments for Flat Earth. But...just as a starter, to settle something which will lead into my argument against, I have a question.

And that question is...how far do Flat Earth believers perceive the horizon to be from one stands?

Cheers!
