Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Easy question from a newcomer

I don't think you mean the uncertainty principal - maybe relativity? That being said, that wasn't really what I was talking about (nor was Copernicus, seeing as how he came before Einstein). I was referring to the observable relationships between the Earth, Sun and other planets. With an Earth-centric model, the other planets seem to follow strange paths, sometimes reversing their direction. With a heliocentric model, those discrepancies are resolved to an incredibly precise degree, showing the planets to make perfectly elliptical orbits around the sun.

Also - why do flat-Eartheans believe the sun to revolve around the disc-shaped Earth rather than the other way around. Surely that would work just as well, and it would account for the cosmic discrepancies that existed pre-Copernicus.

Also, why would the Earth's temperature be hottest around the equator - or going by the map referenced, a smaller circle inside the circular disc of the earth, while the cold bits are around the edges and in the center?

Wouldn't this imply that pilots are in on the conspiracy? How would that work?

Well, obviously. Just trying to not sound combative.

I have flown to Japan from the United States in both directions (over Asia and over the Pacific). How can this be explained with FET?
