Proof that franc T., Planar is just being an idiot
« on: March 28, 2007, 08:13:04 AM »
Below is a link to a copy of the Flat Earth Society's flyer that they send to people.

http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/flatearth.html

Why, do you ask, is this proof that everything that Frankis describes is false? Well, because this letter directly contradicts essentially all of the things Frankis claims, outlined here:

1. Earth's motion

According to Frankis, the world constantly accelerating to create the force of gravitation. The letter (which was created by the most recent leader of the FES) directly states that the earth does not move AT ALL. Therefore, Frankis's model of an accelerating earth is just his own, and not related to FE theory at all. in fact, Rowbotham, the founder of FES, describes the earth as a "CIRCULAR NON-MOVING PLANE".

2. Earth's size

Frankis eschews an infinite earth, while the earth, according to official FES documents, is approximately 50 000 miles in circumference. Well, once again that directly contradicts with Frankis's own opinions, which, either way, are just wrong.

3. Sun and moon

Once again, Frankis claims that there are an infinite number of suns to light the infinite plane. Well, that's again wrong, as the letter describes only one sun and only one moon, which are equal in size and distance from the earth (32 and 3000 miles, respectively).

4. Biblical origins

The FES was brought about by the most literal translation possible of the English version of scripture. Therefore, its roots are inherently drawn from Christian dogma and ethos. Frankis seems to scorn religion in general, since he insults "round-earthers" by calling them zealots or religious idiots, etc., and by calling round earth theory a "religion". This shows he clearly doesn't care much for the Bible, let alone any religion, meaning that he is completely alienated from the actual standing of the FES.


These points outline two possibilities: 1.) Frankis is a troublemaker who just wants attention, or 2.) He makes up his own opinions which, in relation to the original Flat Earth Society, are way-out, wrong, and completely misunderstood.

Hmm, sounds like FE in general.

Regardless, there you have it! Frankis is an idiot and not worth wasting time on!

Actually I think Francy believes that the Earth is NOT accelerating and is instead standing still.  He seems to be the only FE'er who believes in gravity...I recall him saying in an earlier post (I can go look for it if you need me to) that there are inhabitants on the 'other side' of the Earth and I think the only way he could allow this was to start believing in gravity...I may be wrong though.  Anyway great list of reasons dude.
OMG!

Franc doesn't know what he believes.  He makes things up as he goes along.  Best to ignore him.

Good point.  Like why this force that accelerates the earth/sun/moon doesn't accelerate us humans also.  FE'ers are comming up with an answer to that right now.

I sincerely doubt that people like Frankis are capable of thought.

What's your take on this, Frankis? Need your opinion here.

Then why do so many people keep making pointless threads about him?  ::)
The folly of mistaking a paradox for a discovery, a metaphor for a proof, a torrent of verbiage for a spring of capital truths, and oneself for an oracle, is inborn in us. -Some Frenchy

To try and sort out why he acts the way he does.

At first glance, that sentence makes no sense.
But if you think about it real hard, it still doesn't make any.

Sarcasm is hard to read. So it is better to keep sarcasm for when we are face to face.

That way, there won't be two monitors keeping me from slapping you in the face.

Oh, god, no, I'm sorry, I only have one gun. Don't hurt me?
