How can you Have a North Pole Without A South Pole
« on: April 19, 2006, 12:05:15 PM »
There is many flaws in the flat earth theory, the biggest of which is that a flat object does not have a pole. a sphere has a pole. a north pole and a south pole. according to the FE theory there is just an ice wall.

seeing as how in the FE theory there cant be a pole, if there is wouldnt it be called "the pole" instead of the north pole?

and dont give me some "because its north in the sky" bs. thats an incorrect tense of the noun "north pole".

*gawk*.  You just said, "(not P) and (P --> Q)."  I'm guessing you also mean "not Q".  So I guess you've proven "not P", i.e., "there is no pole".  So what's your point?

Wow, you don't get too many RE-ers putting words in FE-ers mouths -- usually it's totally unnecessary.

And what is the correct tense of the noun "north pole" anyway?  Future?  Present perfect?  I'm not sure.

This has probably got to be the worst proof for a round earth that I've ever seen.
A different world cannot be built by indifferent people.

That is ambiguous enough that it could possibly have some truth to it, which is still exponentially more convincing than "only spheres can be magnetized".

Worse even than, "If everything in this sentence is true, then the Earth is flat?"

Ok, so it's almost the worst I've ever seen.

There can easily be worse than that, like "the earth is round because I looked at it".


I agree that using the reasoning in the first post, you couldn't even prove that a cow makes milk.
