Right, the "wandering stars" were the planets.  What relevance does this have to modern flat earth theory?  ???
Where did you educate the biology, in toulet?

modern FErs STILL believe the stars are on a flat disk! and they STILL have no answer for the planets' odd movements!

and on a related note: FErs also have no answer for the existence of the seasons: summer+winter.
consider: the seasons are REVERSED south of the equator: summer in the USA and winter in australia at the same time, and vice versa. that can ONLY be explained by the RE model!

Actually it can be explained by you not reading the FAQ:

Q: How do seasons work?

The radius of the sun's orbit around the Earth's axis symmetry varies throughout the year, being smallest when summer is in the northern annulus and largest when it is summer in the southern annulus.

Actually the Corilous effect would occur on a FE, but it would appear to be very different.

This effect is a resultant of the differing rates of radial velocity with a varying radius (i.e. you travel slower at the poles then at the equator compared to the equator.

With the FE being a disc you only get one rotation of the Corilous effect because the radius increases to a certain point then stops. Hence because of the inertia of the air on a east spinning earth all air will rotate round in a relative westward direction (the air stays 'relatively' still while the earth moves) Thus all storms/hurricanes/plug holes should rotate in a clockwise direction everywhere.

Evidence of my bathroom disputes this however... ???

That's because you can't observe the effect in something so small...

Psh, he's obviously referring to the hurricanes in his bathroom.  gawd

I really don't get this argument. I'm sure there's ome FE theory to explain it away, but when I go to visit my brother in Sydney, AU once a year... the water in the toilet DOES spin the other way from mine in the U.S. along with any other toilet or drain in the city. Therefore I make the assumption it would anywhere else in Australia, etc. ... so what's the problem with that being a known fact??

It's not a fact, it's a myth.  The Coriolis 'force' is extremely small.  There are factors that are magnitudes larger than the Coriolis that account for the way the water spins.  These being the shape of the basin, the rotation of the water as it exits the faucet, the drain location and position, and bias from the angle of the faucet itself.

You know what? I just called my brother - I never even asked him about it nor gave it a second thought because I've just always heard that growing up. It's just because of the way toilets are MADE - LOL HAHAHAhahahahah Too funny.

Cool. Corrected and done.

oh, yes, the "omnicient" FAQ, which TOTALLY fails to MENTION what would make the sun go in a circular path at ALL!

FACT: hurricanes south of the equator spin in the opposite direction.

RE explanation: coriolus effect.

FE explanation: NONE! they claim it's not true! they deny this FACT!

It doesn't have to. Because FE sun doesn;t go in a circular path.

(btw, a circular path is called an orbit (or elliptical).)


FACT: hurricanes south of the equator spin in the opposite direction.

RE explanation: coriolus effect.

FE explanation: NONE! they claim it's not true! they deny this FACT!

Actually, much to my surprise and recently - because of it - much research on the subject, toilets, drains, storms, tornadoes, etc. actually DON'T rotate the opposite 'south of the border' specifically. It is a common myth. In fact - storms can rotate both directions in either location on rare occasions.

The Coriolis effect does exist, and does effect the environment - and at measureable levels, but none so noticeable as reversing rotations on a scale readily visible to the naked eye without instrumentation.

I know... me too. ;D
