I put stuff in there that surprised me to see. Why do you have l0gic's quote in yours?

What's surprising about someone using their brain?

And l0gic's quote is in there because it's funny. I should add to my gravity doesn't exist quote.

Never said anything about using their brain. I believe TheEngineer uses his brain but I would be surprised if he said that.

Why is it funny? GR backs up gravity, just not as a force...

Precisely why it's funny. I have a collection of sources indicating that gravity as a force doesn't exist.

I don't understand why you guys can't explain some of this stuff in your FAQ.

"This stuff?"

Your accelerating earth doesn't work.
Explain.

Quote
Planes, helicopters, paragliders would all crash into the earth as the earth rises up to them.
Except they also accelerate upwards.

Quote
The earth would also be traveling much faster than the speed of light, which Einstein showed to be impossible.
Right, and that's why the Earth would not be going faster than light.

Quote
And dont pretend the earth doesn't have gravity
Actually, gravity does not exist.

Quote
but at least you guys could be brave enough to post a photoshopped map.
There is one.  In the FAQ.  Which you said you read...

Quote
Something to show if the earth is a square or a circle kind of thing. Maybe it could explain why water doesn't run off the earth. You know, your little ice wall that would've melted due to global warming.
More stuff clearly explained in the FAQ!

Quote
And the center of your earth, your north pole which should be warmest, is actually the coldest spot on earth.
The Sun does not sit above the north pole.

Quote
Your earth is too thin to have molten lava, so where do volcanos come from?
Really?  How thin is our Earth?

Quote
I'll be you guys can't explain time zones
Everyone likes to have their watch say 12:00pm when the sun is overhead.

Quote
Maybe it's because compasses don't work on a flat earth? I mean, where's your south pole?
Compasses work just fine on the FE.  The 'south' pole is directly under the 'north' pole.

Quote
Since the world is round, you will always end up where you started, how do you guys explain that on a flat earth?
The FE is round.

Quote
If you go directly south won’t you eventually fall off the edge of the Earth?
Yes.

Quote
When I flush my toilet it goes counterclockwise, but I have a friend in Austrailia and when he flushes his toilet it goes clockwise.
That's a myth. 

Quote
You guys must all be biblical literalists, who feel like their religious belief system would be threatened by a round (i.e. spherical) earth.
Another thing covered in the FAQ!

This stuff?
Even while I am curious, I still know you guys are wrong. Your accelerating earth doesn't work. Planes, helicopters, paragliders would all crash into the earth as the earth rises up to them.
Wrong.
The earth would also be traveling much faster than the speed of light, which Einstein showed to be impossible.
Wrong.

tell me how your model explains why deep-dripping Russian geologists found an impenetrable layer of turtle shell when attempting to breach the crust of the earth.
