Flat Earth Q&A / Distance from Adelaide to Sydney
« on: July 03, 2006, 08:30:54 PM »
Why are you saying that FE cannot be correct because it doesn't match up with an RE-reliant number?

Let me reverse your logic for you, giving you the benefit of the doubt on your distance calculations: On the flat Earth, the distance between Adelaide and Sydney is over 2000 miles apart. On the RE model, they'd be only 715 miles apart. This disproves the round Earth theory.

Flat Earth Q&A / The four corners of the earth??
« on: June 18, 2006, 02:33:13 PM »
Quote from: "RichardT"
What do you guys believe the four corners of the earth to be? You guys believe in a circle shaped earth, not a square shaped one! Can you guys explain this to me?

The Bible states the 4 corners of the earth in the book of revelation.


Define "You guys." There are some flat Earthers who believe it to be a disc, and others a quadrilateral. The latter most often base this belief on the Bible, though there are exceptions.

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: More proof

I've been a Mensa member for 13 years now.  Not to brag or belittle the flat-Earthers, but my I.Q. is over 180.


So? IQ = potential for knowledge, not knowledge itself. Besides, we don't even know if you're telling the truth. (And if you are, it's bloody arrogant of you to even make references to it, let alone mention it specifically.)

Speaking of knowledge, Mr./Mme. Oh-so-mighty Intellect, you seem to lack even a basic understanding of flat Earth theory. Brag about that next time.

Flat Earth Q&A / Flat Earth Map

Quote from: "Unimportant"
Where does this 10 miles number come from? I always thought of the ice wall as being hundreds, of not thousands of miles thick.


Indeed, same. I was thinking that it's major flaw is that the ice wall is too thin...

Otherwise, though, excellent map!

Flat Earth Q&A / Question for FE'ers only
« on: June 16, 2006, 03:23:03 AM »
Quote from: "Yardstick2006"
No replies again! Score one for the RE Camp! :P


Lack of replies =/= RE victory.

Lack of replies = FEers not reading every thread, nor replying to every one we read.

There's a constant barrage of new topics being posted all the time, and we have better things to do with our time than answer every last one of them. One recommended way to ensure that your topic is seen and read is to give it a name that (more or less) sums up the question (it being a question that hasn't been asked before is a definite plus). Topics with generic names are among the first to be overlooked.

Now, to answer your question, no, I do not, for one very good reason: Common sense.

While it is, I suppose, theoretically possible that the sun could, through whatever means (likely divine in nature), become Red Dwarf, the likelyhood of it becoming a British sitcom is very low.

Flat Earth Q&A / PROOF!! AGAIN
« on: June 15, 2006, 11:45:40 PM »
Have you ever tried this? Do you have an account of someone who has tried this?

Considering it's never been done, the belief that it's possible is entirely reliant upon the assumption that Earth is round. Take that assumption away and you have an unfounded assertion, and certainly nothing that would prove the sphericity of Earth.

But feel free to try it. Just make sure to bring along magma-resistant clothing, because if what you're trying to prove is correct, you'll need it.

Flat Earth Q&A / Why?: A Motive Question
« on: May 26, 2006, 04:48:20 PM »
While your definition is indeed correct, Scruffy, that which is reasonable is highly subjective. That which is reasonable to you may not be to another, and vice versa. Basically, what you're saying is "That's reasonable to you and not to me, and since I'm right by virtue of the fact that I'm me, you're an idiot."

The Lounge / One last question
« on: May 26, 2006, 04:45:34 PM »
I take offence with your highly loaded poll. You seem to assert that anyone who would kill for their beliefs is a fool, when this is not the case. I, for one, have nothing but respect for those who hold their beliefs in such high regard that they'd kill another in the name thereof, even though I, myself, would not. Even if you cannot respect such people, please do not insult them.

Theres nothing wrong with this word.


According to some, there is much wrong with this word. One could, in fact, easily use that very same word as an adjective in a description of anyone so discourteous as to use it in the presence of those who don't share one's beliefs in what constitues a "good" or "bad" word.

Flat Earth Q&A / My reason(s) for the world being Round
« on: May 26, 2006, 04:57:26 AM »
Quote from: "Conspiracy"
Thing about it like this, if you draw the flat earth, and draw a straight line going say, left, it would go off the end of the earth. And if you started on a RE equator going east, you could go east infinitly, as long as your hand doesn't get tired :)


Both of these are true, but entirely non-related. Let's not use "straight" lines on the FE model and cardinal directions on the RE.

If you go perfectly straight on the flat Earth, you will fly off the edge and into oblivion. If you go perfectly straight on the round Earth, you will fly off into space.

If you were to go due east on the round Earth, you could indeed continue to fly in that direction infinitely. If you were to go due east on the flat Earth, you could also continue to fly in that direction infinitely. (Both, of course, provided the means of propulsion are in infinite supply.)

I've never seen a flat earth picture that even looked close to real.


Well, considering your RE picture looks suspiciously like an "Image Not Found" icon, I would venture to say that your belief of the Earth and proof thereof is no better than you believe ours to be. But, as I said, if you're correct, it truly is an amazing discovery! :wink:

Hm, very intriguing. A flat, oddly-shaped object with an apparent fold in the Earth in the northeast and a large chasm separating the southeast. Three continents, one pink one no less, and nothingness around it's border. It seems we were both wrong about Earth's shape; this is an amazing discovery!

Flat Earth Q&A / The Indians new it
« on: May 22, 2006, 07:23:06 PM »
Quote from: "Yourworstnightmare"
1. If you use that argument, then everything we know about history that was not recoreded could be a lie.
2. Because they were primative people and when they looked at the earth, it was flat.
3. So ancient India started it and it somehow survived centuries being in secret and was adoted by the western world even though through most of history Europe fought wars against the middle east? Put that in the FAQ


1. Actually, technically, it could be. We attempt to use sense and reason to tell us what happened when we've only remains to go on, and chances are we're right most of the time, but we *will* get things wrong, and probably never know it. And, because of that, in theory, it could all be.

2. You assume these people had lower intelligence than us. I do not accept this premise. A lower technological level is not indicative of lower intelligence, but rather of having had less time to develop. Those of them that survived did the best with what they had available to them, something many people today cannot do. The cave people who believed that at least believed it from their own experience, and not on the basis of what they were told, which, in my opinion, gives them superior merit regardless of whether or not they were right.

3. No comment. I do not believe in the government conspiracy.

He never said the map was perfect, simply that one could distinguish the continents on it, and if you recall, the OP wanted to know the locations of the continents, and wasn't looking for a flawless FE map.

this is a real letter that some one wrote in responce to attacks on homeosexuals made on an american chrisian radio show. ...

Dear Dr. Laura ...


Dr. Laura Schlessinger, the woman this letter was intended for and host of an advice show, is Jewish, not Christian, and every passage referred to in that letter is from what Christians would call the "Old Testament," the older, Jewish section of the Bible. I am not particularly knowledgeable on the content of the Torah, but I believe it has, more or less, the same content as the Old Testament.

Excellent; a good summary of what various people have written about it would be great. Speaking of which, could you give any more information on "Toxic Psychiatry?" I'd like to know if it's worth my time or is full of things I already knew.

Flat Earth Believers / Shape of the Earth

Quote from: "Dionysios"
Which greek writers are you referring to with reference to Thrace as I am sure the better ones were not so small minded.


I was referring more to Greek belief in general. I don't see how seeing the domain of a god of something as the place where said thing resides, and using it in describing locations, is small-minded.

Quote from: "Dionysios"
And I am hardly the first person to hold this view of Atlantis.


Hm, your post from here on was a bit vague, but I take it Cosmas also believed this about Atlantis? Far be it for me to challenge one of the greater FE minds in history based on an article I barely remember, if so. I'll have to look further into this.
