Flat Earth Debate / Re: Three models of Gravity
« on: August 20, 2008, 02:52:34 PM »
In the second model, I do not understand why the upward movement of the earth has no effect on air particles. And by that I mean why we do not see a constant breeze straight against the ground? As far as I've been led to believe before, air particles were not affected by enough by gravity to be pulled to the ground.

So... I assume that you're genuinely asking this question and that you also believe Einstein was correct when he said that you can't tell these apart, as the original poster reiterated at the start of this thread. So your question is not that you think a breeze would distinguish these 3 models from each other, but rather that you really don't know.

Well... I'm an RE'er, but the the (other) thing that's preventing a breeze from forming is the ice wall the FE'ers presume exists. If there is no place for the air to go then there will be no breeze. You can see this for yourself (I assume) if you point a pail straight into the wind while hanging out the window of a car. If the pail is deep enough there will be little to no breeze at the bottom because there is no where for the air to go.

Note, the most analgous case in RE is if the earth had a hole in it and the interior were hollow and a vacuum. Then even on earth there would be a breeze as you are stating.



Your analogy about the pail makes sense but even with it, the pail would experience force pressing against the bottom as would be felt by your hand holding it.

Also, if inside the pail very near the bottom, I tape a small feather to the side. Would I not be able to see the air affect the feather and so in the same way see the affect of the air on trees and even the grass?

From what I've read on site so far it would seem to me that we would see the impact of the earth against the air as the earth moves upward.

If the air and atmosphere were all held in place by some sort of "dome force" and not affected by the upward movement then wouldn't it hold true that anything inside said dome would also not be affected?

Flat Earth Debate / Re: How does satellite T.V. work?

Thank you.

So then where are these towers located that the common public cannot see them? Would this mean that all "satellite" transmitting services are also in on the whole government conspiracy to make us believe the world is round?

I noticed that a member named Tom Bishop said in another thread that government satellites do not exist. So I would assume that this would imply that no satellites exist in FE. How then does "satellite" T.V. operate?

That's what I'm enjoying about it.

The discussions here are not your everyday type. A lot of questioning of scientific theory and things of that nature that I find very interesting.

Thanks. I'm enjoying the discussions immensly.

I have other questions but am trying to read up a little more on topics that have been previously discussed. And I'll readily admit I don't have near the background of knowledge of many of the subjects covered that I've seen from both sides of the arguement on this site.

RoboSteve,

You state all light bends upward. By upwards do you mean "straight up" as in perpendicular to the surface of flat earth?

And is the sun also affected the same way?

First post by the way. VERY interesting site.
