Flat Earth Debate / Re: Trip to Antarctica.

That has to be a really fast boat to go around the outer rim of earth in 30 days especially when you have to stop to see the sights from time to time.

Do I really need to add "</sarcasm>" to the end of that post? Perhaps check my sig?

You never can't be sure with these flat earth theorists. :)

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Burden of Proof

Actually, the equinoxes are the sunrise/set dates for the poles. 

Did I say something different?

Oh, and have you ever heard of twilight?

Naturally north and south pole get some light when the sun is below the horizon,
but the main point was that the sun isn't visible during 6 months.

Trigonometry is all part of the conspiracy. Everything formula that uses sine, cosine, tangents etc. is essentially fake and does not really work. It just appears to work due to the illusions created by bendy maths. I'm surprised you didn't know this.

You can always draw latitudes and longitudes on a ball and check that sine cosine an tangets works fine when calulating position of point on the surface of that ball.

The North pole is the only place where 6 months of light and darkness can and has been documented because there are people who live there (Inuits),

People live on the south pole too.


according to science if the Earth spun on her axis this could not take place. The link shows the North axis is tilted away from the Sun in Dec (3/mths), thereby no day-light, and in June towards the Sun (3/mths), thereby no nights, but in the March and Sept position the North axis gets half light/half night (6/mths).

That illustration does not show northpole getting half-night half day for 6 mths in a year it gets that for two days in a year on those points illustrated on that picture. If you would draw those pictures of earth one day before march equinox and one day after the march equinox you would see that northpole does not get any light on those days

I wolud like to know what proof does Dioptimus Drime have on this conspiracy. I mean he has listed motives but not a single proof. I could say that Dioptimus Drime probably likes money and I know that you can make lot of money on dealing drugs so have I proved that Dioptimus Drime is a drug dealer?

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Variations in gravity

Furthermore there is no clear reason in FE why stars have a gravitational pull, and earth doesn't.

The faq tells that clearly. Earth does not have gravity because snakes does not have legs. ;D

How can gravity have slightly different streght on different parts of the earth if the earth accellerates at constant speed?
The different gravitational pulls of the celestial bodies above the Earth can account for this effect.

Then why doesn't the high/low gravity areas move when the celestial bodies do?

Edit: Small correction sun/moon and planets do cause small shifts in gravity but the gravity map does no correlate with these shifts For example havaji has stroger gravity than the ocean surrounding no matter how the celestial objects are positioned.

How do you determine what 'level ground' is at the moment? It would feel the same as being on a slight hill in the RE model...

That's because you would be on slight hill neither on re or fe model. If you stand on tilted surface the strenght of gravity will not change only its direction compared to the angle of surface you are standing on. You could still easily measure the real strenght of gravity simply by measuring the direction where it is strongest. And measuring the streght of the gravity to that direction.

Also the moon/sun gravity theory does no work because they move but low/high gravity areas do not.

Alternatively, if you allow gravitation in the FE model then the differences can be explained in the conventional manner (local mass/altitude variation etc...)

Yes if you would allow that there would be no problem. But the faq says that earth has no gravity.

Ok thanks I guess I just did not use the right search words to search this forum. However I really can't see how the tilting or moon/sun can explain this: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap030723.html I know that this is from a conspiracy nasa pseudolite but similar readings can be measured on ground based tests.

And if some part of the earth would be tilted shouln't gravity press us slightly sideways?

First of all I would like apologise for spamming this forum with three new threads. Especially when I found the answers from the search to two of them. However I did not find ansver this to this question. How can gravity have slightly different streght on different parts of the earth if the earth accellerates at constant speed?
