Faked.  Did you directly observe the transit?

no but i doubt thatan average joe astronomer in his backyard would fake something like that.

and the PST solar telescopes needed to observe a transit are only about 300-400 so not too expensive.

hope to have one soon as the transits of venus and mercury are apparently quite spectacular first hand

"apparently".

The average Joe astronomer didn't fake it.  There are people who claim to be amatuer astronomers who are actually planted by the Conspiracy to dupe the uneducated public into believing that anyone can see these alleged events.

you're kidding me right? so how come at night people one one side of the FE say in australia can see the same stars in the sky as people on the other side of the FE ie. south america?

FE has no sides, as it is a disc.  Like holding a picture of stars over a plate.  The ant at the outer edges of the plate will see the same stars no matter where it stands.

not true.

as on one edge of the flat disc you would see certain stars and on the other edge different stars yet they dont. all of the southern hemisphere sees the same stars?

Draw a circle...say with a 20 foot radius.  Erect poles and put a sheet on them covering the circle.  You can see all points.  Remember you can see stars near the horizon as well in the Southern hemisphere, so seeing stars on two landmasses is possible.  Unfortunately, you can't be in two places at once, so you can't verify for a fact that you can see them.

yes but with your model you should be able to see all the stars on the above sheet. yes?

but in say the uk you cant see the southern cross

and in australia you can't see ursa minor

so how does that work?

There's a couple of threads in here that use the analogy of a gear system in the sky with the stars integrated into the gears.  Check it out.
