Flat Earth Q&A / Explain?
« on: June 04, 2006, 10:07:50 AM »
If every single detail of the "hoax" is valid and believable,

Why the hell do you contest it so much?

The FE model is full of many more holes than the "hoax" model.

Within Reason, but not pulling it out of your ass.

Plot between Aliens and the goverment to kill the human race if any more humans discovered the truth?


I don't care who you ask, That is in no way reasonable.

Partially because that requires another (more far fetched) motive to explain why Aliens would want to ......

I've lost interest.

When flying a plane,


You never come to an "end" or "edge"



Spheres don't have edges.


Youre not even trying to argue now.


A Flat Earth would definetly have an "end" or "edge"


So youre last post is incorrect

Theres nothing wrong with this word.

How the hell is that at all Reasonable?


Reasonable -
   1. Capable of reasoning; rational: a reasonable person.
   2. Governed by or being in accordance with reason or sound thinking: a reasonable solution to the problem.
   3. Being within the bounds of common sense: arrive home at a reasonable hour.
   4. Not excessive or extreme; fair: reasonable prices.

This isn't a logical error.

This is a miscommunication.


I saw straight line on the flat earth model, as in NOT BASED ON CARDINAL DIRECTIONS.


I mean if you start on the left side of the Flat Earth (from any point of view), heading left, and accelerate.


You'll end up on the right side.

Mattz,

A 'straight' line in a FE world, for one example...is also East.

Thus, if you fly east, continuously...

Where do you get? Back to where you started.

And what have you done along the way? Gone around the world.



It's a simple diagram.

I fail to see how your lack of spatial reasoning makes me wrong.

And seriously, stop swearing. Saying 'fuck' every sentence doesn't make you cool, nor does it help prove anything. I could just go about saying you're all fucking retards because you can't accept other views and fully research them before making really fucking unfounded opinions that suck ass.

But I don't do that because I'm not a jackass.



This doesn't change the fact youre a moron.

Not adhering to cardinal direction,

Flying in a straight line in the flat earth model would put you at the edge of the Earth.

"Straight Lines" as I'm referring to them,
Aren't cardinal direction (as in on a compass)

They are Straight Lines.

I think that was jab at the fact that this thread has gone to hell due to various dolts and the inability to communicate every single MOTHERFUCKING parameter neccesary to give everyone the same damn picture in their head

I didn't even mention "cardinal directions" or compasses in that last post


Your points are void.

I got an experiment for you,


Stare into the sun until you lose the ability to use your lower brain functions,
then keep staring.

Mattz,

Read the first damn post which states the situation as flying in a straight line.


Thats the simplest way to put it.

Though the line is not Technically "straight"

Remaining at the same altitude and going in the same direction will result in your death in the FE model


and you curcumnavigation of the globe in the RE model

Quote from: "Scruffy"
It Is possible to fly around the earth without adjusting your altitude, bearing or speed (if you had sufficient fuel)

I'm not a pilot but I have the basic idea. Don't take me to literally because you have to understand the basic concept I'm trying to get across.

Again you say "bearing", which is almost always refering to a compass.

But I understand what you're saying.

You're claiming that if you fly in a perfectly straight line - "straight as an arrow" - you would be able to fly all the way around the earth and end up back where you started.

The problem is that you're basing this claim on the assumption that the earth is a sphere. If the earth isn't a sphere, your claim is quite simply wrong. Since your claim is dependant on the earth being a sphere, you can't use it to prove that the earth is, in fact, a sphere. You'd have to verify your claim some other way - probably by actually doing it - and that's really not possible.


Bearing to my understanding can refer to the direction someone is heading.

The problem is,

You can circumnavigate the globe. It is possible.
It has been done.

Therefore I am correct, and the Earth is in fact not flat.
(Not necesarily a sphere, but definely some sort of shape similar to a Sphere)

Heading due east in any applicable form of transportation for a long enough time will put you back in the same general area (if you don't run into any land masses)

You don't need to do any crazy half-assed experiment which isn't applicable to finding the shape of this planet, or you can just agree to give up your simply baffling beliefs and go with logic.

Specifically based on the fact that people have/are/will go completely around the Earth.

So it's not flat.

Dear Verbally Irresponsible Fuck,


You have completely just bypassed the part of the conversation where you come up with evidence and/or a motive.


Seeing how you failed to do so I am taking the following action(s):

Stating you are by definition, a retard.

Sincerely,
Scruffy

Flat Earth Q&A / hey everyone
« on: May 25, 2006, 12:48:08 PM »
1. You're avoiding the question

2. I believe the first post in this thread speaks of the position/movement of the constellations

3. This thread seemed a bit dead, so I decided to pose another question


Specifically I chose this question because it'll be bout' damn impossible for a Flat-Earther to Explain this logically

That situation doesn't really apply to this situation.


I'm asking you why you base your view of the world on a theory,
like this one, which doesn't explain the most controversial point.

I know nothing about Lincoln, thats a reason why I don't claim to know anything about him, have any theories about him or ever even think about him.

I don't care about him.



You obviously think about the world as a flat plane, and project this opinion to other people.

They ask you why,
and you bring up Lincoln.


Why On Earth, would every person who knows the truth, choose to convince everyone else, that the world is in fact round, if the opposite is true?

Let me rephrase myself, Yet Again.


It Is possible to fly around the earth without adjusting your altitude, bearing or speed (if you had sufficient fuel)

I'm not a pilot but I have the basic idea. Don't take me to literally because you have to understand the basic concept I'm trying to get across.


Because this is true, The Earth is by nature round, and not flat.

A Flat Earth would require you to turn completely around when flying around the world, else it would result in your death. (I.e. Space, Ice Wall, Etc)

« on: May 24, 2006, 08:50:17 PM »
The fact is there is no reliable evidence.


All the Flat Earth Theory is,

is a bunch of randomly strung together guesses at trying to explain natural events,

which are already described much better with another theory.

It's called the Round earth Theory which makes sense.

Because it does not involved half-cocked government plans that span the entirity of human civilization

See,

Believing that the Earth is flat,
Doesn't effect anything in your life.

Except for the fact that everyone you tell your beliefs to,

Will come to the conclusions that you are in fact braindead and must be still alive to do some totally pissed off creator that hates smart people

How about some suggestions, because this whole "We don't know" crap is quite redundant.



Any actual plausible reasons why the powers that be in the world,
Would choose to cover up the actual shape of the planet here:

For The record,

I didn't write it.

I thought That would be kind of obvious after I wrote "Taken from ...."


I don't know if that technically makes it my point if I didn't write it.

I just agree with it.
