Technology, Science & Alt Science / Re: Australia doesn't exist

This has to be a troll. This is why no one takes flat earth seriously.

At least read the FAQ first.

I have read that, but I would like to hear an explanation from a flat earth believer himself.
The FAQ seems rather vague on the subject - especially as to my questions.
I have presented those questions and answers on the horizon on the globe on several previous posts.
Would like for some flat earth believer to do the same-in their own words.

They will just reply with "I'm not going to explain it for the thousandth time."

Is that the angle they're going for?

You should have said, "Is that the angle they're shooting for?"   ;D

Done

I can't tell if this is a troll or not

rab is most definitely a troll

I am talking about the OP. The FAQ has a flat earth model with Australia on it. Also, what motive dies the government have to hide Australia?

Can the gun even shoot? Maybe you can 3D print a mold for casting? Is that the angle they're shooting for?

Isn't this a bad idea from any economical standpoint? Like, I could 3D print as many guns as I want, and I'm not buying them from the company.

Flat Earth General / Re: Flat Earth Motive?
« on: July 26, 2018, 02:08:53 PM »
Reasoning by motive is even more difficult than reasoning by observation, as it is easy to ascribe motive and intention and the conclusions of the "what-ifs" with no recourse to ever finding an accurate answer.
Do you know what the truth of the bible is?
Wrong forum.
What forum does it belong in?

Flat Earth Q&A / Why do Objects Fall?
« on: July 26, 2018, 12:02:58 PM »
 The FAQ says that objects simply fall. There isn't gravity. So why did objects fall then?

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: What is the Sun?
« on: July 25, 2018, 01:24:51 PM »
Ok, this is a meme but it illustrates the point



I can still see the lightbulb though.

You couldn't if it were thousands of kilometres away at an oblique angle. Did you know every square inch of your skin is more luminous than a square inch of the sun?

You will also notice that during sun rise and sunset that one side of the sky is brighter/darker than the other. This is proof the sun 'doesn't shine everything at once'
Okay, but our skin simply reflects light and the sun produces light. And how do lunar eclipses happen if the sun is a spotlight.

What do you mean when you say the sun is thousands of kilometres away at an oblique angle. We can see stars from a huge distance. We should still be able to see the sun unless something is blocking our view.

I'm pretty sure at sunset that simply one side is dark because it doesn't have the sun shining on it to reflect light, but I'm not sure and will probably have to do an experiment.

Flat Earth Q&A / What is the Sun?
« on: July 24, 2018, 04:23:50 PM »
If the sun is a spotlight, how does the sun work? If we assume that the sun is a giant ball of gas, it would shine light everywhere, and on a flat earth model this doesn't work. How does it only shine onto one spot? Why does the sun disappear at night? Even if it's night, we should still be able to see it.

Flat Earth General / Flat Earth Motive?
« on: July 24, 2018, 02:49:12 AM »
I have read the FAQ, but I have some questions regarding the motive people have to hide a flat Earth. One of the biggest, I think, was that a moon landing would be impossible with a flat Earth model.

If it really was a cover up, then I have a few issues with it. First, it seems that the USSR would have the most reason to disprove the moon landing. They didn't, so we can assume the moon landings happened, thus disproving this motive.

Furthermore, the USSR made it into space first. If the Earth was flat they'd announce it, but if they decided to keep it a secret, they could've used the flat Earth model to disprove the moon landings. Of course, we know they didn't.

The FAQ also mentions that this would destabilize the legitimacy of science and by extension our government. Personally, I agree with that statement, but I think it's important to realize that  this has already happened, but instead scientists "proved" the Earth round and religion was destabilized. If science is about learning from patterns, why would scientists do something that has already failed?

Taking money does seem like a fairly plausible reason. However, this has happened before, during the protestant revolution. Again, this didn't work out well for religion, so why would science choose to do the same thing?

If anyone knows what the truth of the bible is, please let me know.
