The rest of the universe.
« on: December 25, 2007, 02:42:00 PM »
What is the Flat earth stance on the rest of the Universe? I can see 3 possible models for it, each of which seem to have some flaws.

1) The universe is devoid of absolutely everything aside from Space time, UA/FE dark energy and our little system. Problems are the inability of meteors to exist, despite clear observations of them, along with evidence of past collisions with the planet from extraterrestrial objects.

2) The rest of the universe is being accelerated along with our planet. Problems are that the rest of the universe seems to operate on a sphere basis, with no obvious reason for our planet not to. The fact that our understanding of how stars works requires (gravity/gravitation/gravitational force/whatever you want to call the force that causes stuff to move towards each other, I know you're fussy about what you call it here) in order to form them and hold them together is also a small problem.

3) The rest of the universe is stationary and is unaffected by the UA/FE dark energy. This has the main problem of the fact we would observe the rest of the universe streaming past us at a fairly fast rate. Light would also be unpleasantly blue shifted above us, and red shifted around the horizon. Collision with anything is also very nasty in this situation.

Which situation is correct, and what explains away its flaws? Also, is there some kind of collection of the currently accepted FE models?

Anyone? There must be some FE theories out there that explain how the cosmos operates...

This one. And refer to The Earth is Spherical (page 9) for more info.

The rest of the universe exists purely as Tom Bishop demands it to exist. Be careful not to be crushed by perspective as you leave.

There are still a few problems I can see. Why are all other celestial objects not constrained into discs? Why does the phenomena known as gravity exist for everything else blasted out by the Big bang, but not our planet? Why did the big bang generate, out of the vast amounts of simple hydrogen and helium, a single lump of rock composed of heavy elements? For that matter, where did all the hydrogen go?
