Suggesting a new theory [ Moved ]
« on: March 13, 2007, 10:52:53 AM »
As my namesake, I shall entitle it the Pacman Theory. When I was reading over the idea of how the world is flat, and that in fact we have icewalls all around I began wondering.. What if we didn't what if, instead of giant walls of ice, somehow we magically get transported to the opposite side of the map? Thus, the illusion is given that the world is round. This would be illustraited in the oldschool Pacman games where if one moves off the screen in one direction, they will appear on the opposite side of the screen. As for why this would happen, and how to prove it.. I have absolutely no idea. Anyways, discuss the idea or tear it to shreads.

PS: I think I posted it in the wrong place at first. Sorry!

The funny is, is that you think you are so original, that your screen name is even the name of your theory.  Sorry to burst your bubble, but you are not original.

Only reason I posted was to post my theory, hence why I made my name my theory. And I thought it was fairly original, yes. If it has been posted else where, please send a link so I can read what others think on it.

Actually, what you are proposing is quite possible.
You see, scientists have been aware of the existence of "wormholes" in the universe for quite some time now, yet they couldn't really observe one thoroughly. Wormholes are like holes bending the universe, and thus connecting the two separated points together.

There may be a huge wormhole connecting the sides of our flat earth, which explains why we haven't seen any edges yet.

Still, this is really complicated and therefore, being an honest and rational science person, I can't approve or even start supporting your theory right away. Yet it's brilliant, and yes, it is scientifically possible!!!

i'm being so rational as to think that maybe we're not so fucking special .. maybe there's no wormhole at the end of our flat earth .. maybe a wormhole being there is just so convienient for the FEers, they'll take it and use it as their own theory .. this is retarded, the FEers just make up shit as they go along, it's absolutely rediculous now
With no south pole, there is no electromagnetism, giving us no protection from the sun's harmful radiation--we'd all be dead right now.
The ice wall, supposedly made up of antartica lies around the edge of the earth, why no one has recorded it, who knows

It seems to make a bit more sense to me than an icewall being guarded. No offense to those who believe in it or the person who made it in the first place. It also would explain why the journey from one end of the world to the other is shorter, which is one of the arguements I've heard against the Flat Earth theory.

Also, I had completely forgotten about wormholes, so thanks for reminding me! That makes a heck of alot more sense than anything I could come up with.

People like you dont like changes. They dont like the things they know to be altered - they want to believe that they know the truth and the truth alone. It's easy to stand in the way of change. When Galileo made the famous mistake, people didn't want that new information to settle. Now, when we're trying to correct it, we're facing the same thing. I don't know about who's rational, but at least I know who's respectful and open-minded and who's not...

famous mistake ? so discovering something and proving most of humanity wrong (science in other words) is a mistake ?? How can you accidentily find out a fact, like the earth is round, and say "oh wait this cant be right, peer pressure tells me it's not." so basically, science has nothing to do with nething at all ? only pure speculation ?

to be fair you (mostly)all make good points! it is virtually never possible to know the exact truth about anything and science should always be about disproving the things we take for fact/theroy.  however in my mind the FE theory (in any form icewall of wormhole) does seem incredibly unlikely and RE more sensible

OK, so the earth is flat... but it's BENT! Everybody can win THIS way.

Which mistake did he make?

Glalileo Galilei was an excellent astronomer, and a greater man than you will ever be. That the Earth is flat is not a mistake, it's ignorance, and Galileo's discovery was just that, a discovery. The Truth.
Here's an explanation for ya. Lurk moar. Every single point you brought up has been posted, reposted, debated and debunked. There is a search function on this forum, and it is very easy to use.

He was great, because he could stand up against the whole world for what he believes, even almost in expense of his own life.
That's what makes us FE'ers so great. You're as blind as you believe those people were back then. You're misjudging us for supporting and trying to spread the truth and the truth alone...

I'm confused. So, you're trying to go against one of your own, rebellious neighbors - a man that is your INSPIRATION, for all I know. But, the irony of the situation is that your role model is your greatest enemy. Man, that is just so confusing on so many levels. It almost makes me believe the earth is flat.  ::)



... Oh wait.

One question:
Wormholes, theoretical as they are, are said to be microscopic. How does this mesh with the hypothesis?

Flat Earthers are spreading the truth now??  That is the funniest shit I have ever heard.

What if we didn't what if, instead of giant walls of ice, somehow we magically get transported to the opposite side of the map? Thus, the illusion is given that the world is round.

Very interesting theory. So, if I were to fall off the world, I would respawn in the opposite direction on the other side of the map! Teleportation! I told you guys it's possible...

This thread is 12 years old. None of the posters even come here any more. Maybe don't necro post like that next time, eh?
