Flat Earth Q&A / Another question, good sirs
« on: February 18, 2007, 04:56:04 PM »
If indeed the earth is flat, then those living in the outer edges, would experience a pull towards the center, since you people claim that compasses actually point to the earth's center (but then, you also say that gravity does not exist. I am equally confounded by this, but that is another matter).

This, then, is good news, because it means that if I am nearer at the edge of the earth, and I want to get to the center, I would just hop a bit, and I would have moved a considerable amount towards the center. Compared to riding airplanes or buses, this is relatively cheaper.

Ah, but I realize that I would drown at the seas...

But wait, WOULD I drown, or would I still drift towards the center, gravity having its origin therein? This then says that people at the center of the earth have a very hard time walking, for the force of earth's gravity (or any force of gravity, if you believe it exists) is stronger when the distance between the center of gravity and the object is shorter.

what country did you say was at the center of the earth? I want to visit it and see if it is harder to ride a horse there.

again, I thank you good sirs for enlightening me.

For, as Socrates and Descartes have said, the senses can deceive, and are the most evil.

I have found certain books in our Library which have the author discussing that the earth was made ten seconds ago, with everything in it now.

They say that all memories, all planets, all people, were already created here. So, that memory of your wherein you vomitted while delivering a speech did not really happen!

Rejoice!

Flat Earth Q&A / Do all FEers...

Then this speak of "Shadow Object" should be banned from here!

This Tom fellow always seems so sure, but he spouts lies! Heresies! Train bombings! Monsoons of unseasonable sadness?

Damn, that was just stupid.

How unfortunate that my facade as an Englishman with proper manners and refined grammar has not reached some of this site's, ah... Less intelligent beings.

Flat Earth Q&A / If the Earth is flat....

Pointless?
My dears, there are recolor sites, where children recolor game graphics and discuss them. Now, my friend and I have agreed at times that these sites are pointless, but who are we to say?

You say it is pointless, yet if a man said that a round earth is pointless, you would be on their necks before they could say "Tarry, rash wanton, am not I thy lord? Do you amend it then? It lies in you!".

My statement about the moderators is in light of some topics that need locking. Surely, moderators have such a power?

A website has rules.

I am ready to bet my dog, Flanders, that spamming is a bannable offense.

Now, if only some moderators would actually MODERATE this site...

Whether the shadow is caused by a RE or not is not the issue. The question is, where do you people draw the line when it comes to believing visual observation?

Because, if you ask me, I would rather you did away with visual information altogether, if any a little boy could say "It is a hoax by the government" or "Your eyes are decieving you."

I say, we do without sight when it comes to the discussion of FE/RE, and use science instead.

The problem is, my little poppinjay, there are actually some people who believe in it.

Now, if you would just try to use reason instead of lolomgspamsdfhasfj, then you might be able to convert a few people.

Could you not as easily conclude that the earth appearing flat is caused by something else, and the shadow is in actuality, earth's?

No, no, my dear, it seems you misunderstand.

My question is: FE'ers seem to prefer believing some visual observation more than others.

For example, if I said I had seen a Lunar Eclipse with my own eyes, and the shadow was round, I would be ready to stake all my monetary belongings that you would come up with some fancy explanation for it.

But if I said the earth looked flat to me, why, every Fe'er would agree.

Flat Earth Q&A / Still not explained by non-magic!
« on: February 18, 2007, 03:58:54 PM »
I, too, want clarification with regards to this mysterious "Shadow Object" you speak of.

Is it out to get us?

Could it "crash" land on the earth?
If it did, would I get hurt?

If I shone a spotlight on it, seconds before it crash-landed on earth, would it disappear?

I do not believe photographs.

These, as proven by FE'ers are mostly government hoaxes.

I must practice not wondering at the beauty of my garden, lest it be a conspiracy by the government!

I beg you good youths to please take your exclamation marks and sarcasms elsewhere. It annoys even the most patient one.

Ah, but good sir.

I myself have watched my friends automobile as it leaves my house, and I noticed that as it moved farther away, its wheels disappeared, but its top parts stayed visible.

But I digress.

The senses can be easily deceived. Why, just yesterday, my nephew showed me a fantastic trick with a glass of water, and a pencil, where the pencil appeared to be broken in the water, but was straight as could be when he removed it out of water's hold. My eyes saw it, yet, I would not make such a claim that water breaks pencils, and air mends them.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't Chuck Norris jokes overly overused and outdated?

I would go so far as to claim that it is, ah, how do you say this in 4chan speak... "Older than Jesus"?

I am confused.
Hawking, as a modern man (this is not to say that all FE'ers are not modern men. This is just to say that MOST modern men of science believe the earth is flat) of science, believes the earth is round.

If he perchance, stated that the Earth was round, would you then believe him? I ask merely for information, seeing that you easily turn to his "infinite but finite" theory (by the way, I thank you for that little bit of fyi) for backup.

Ah, yes, I seem to have overlooked that fact.

And yes, Pyrochimp has interpretted my question quite well.

I mean to say, if you believe everything in the universe is moving, and if a moving universe would not have any effects on anyone, then you must believe that the universe is expanding.

I am asking then, if FE'ers believe then that we have become even more infinitesimal.

Also, my good friend, who sits here now beside me, is asking if FE'ers believe that earth is the only flat planet.

Now, now, good sirs.

I but beg that the good reputation of this forum be not tarnished by people who jest. This is a serious matter. I would like to have someone tell me what this "Shadow Object" is.

Is there much known about it?
Are experiments being done on it as we speak?

It seems my first attempt at replying to a gentleman's inquiries resulted instead in a topic. I have no excuse for this, and hope that the follies of new members be forgiven.

I have but one question, after reading your informative FAQ.

"The Earth is accelerating upwards at 1g (9.8m/s-2) along with every star, sun and moon in the universe. This produces the same effect as gravity. "

This was written as an explanation for gravity. While it seems logical at first, it would make it seem that either:

A) The whole universe is moving
B) The whole universe is expanding vertically at a rate of 9.8 meters per second, and a large portion of the universe is empty, due to all of the planets and stars moving upwards.

Now, if you pick A, then I would assume that you were a madman who believed in ridiculous things, since even if the universe moved a hundred miles per minute, then we would not feel a thing. This is comparable to a man riding in a moving train, and tossing a crumpled piece of paper upwards; it would still land on his feet (or, indeed, on his hand, if he had good reflexes).

On the other hand, if you pick B, then at a rate of 9.8 meters per second, and at the universe's age estimated at 11.2 billion (at least. Some experts say 20 billion), the universe would have expanded by 9.8 m/s x 31, 557,600 s/year x 11 billion years,  or 3,401,909,280,000,000 kilometers, which is approximately 11 trillion light years. Do all Flat Earthers then believe that the Universe has even more empty space than it had before, and that man's realization that we are but points in a vast space should be revised into "we are but poits upon vast space which is a point upon a vast space..." and so on?

I hope you could provide clarification with regards to this matter.

I thank you all in advance.

I believe this "Shadow Object" is a dark shadow that surrounds the earth, that has majicks to transport you to the opposite edge, my good sir.

If anyone more informed than me could please correct?
