moon a disk
« on: October 01, 2008, 05:02:28 PM »
how can you account for the moons phase changes if it is a disk? my friends in the university dont believe me the earth may be flat because of this phenomena

The moon is not a disk.

Not only does it go through phases implying a spherical shape, but through a telescope it can also be seen clearly that the craters in the center are viewed "head on", while craters toward the edge of the moon are seen from an angle.

Okay, I admit it.  The earth isn't flat.

The moon is definitely not a disk. Lunar libration shows its shape to be roughly spherical.

This thought just crossed my mind for the first time. OK so if everything is accelerating upwards, and lets just say we could put someone on the round moon, wouldn't everything just fall off of the moon unless it was on the very top? I am interested in hearing theories that would disprove this.

The FAQ says the Moon is a disc.  Plus, space flight is impossible in FET. Oh and the FET dark energy would ensure that they accelerate upwards as well, since the Moon is unlikely to provide as much 'shielding' as the Earth does.  Oh yeah, and the Moon in FET gravitates as well (I think).

If you can tell me how round earth explains the formation of mountains on the moon... I will tell you why the moon is flat...

If I was asked to imagine a perfect deity, I would never invent one that suffers from a multiple personality disorder. Christians get points for originality there.

1. Moon is not flat.
2. Craters from asteroid and meteor impacts.
3. What do you have against commas and periods? Are you trying to convey a sense of deep thought?  :-\

Well... The moon according to the Japanese has mountains on the far side of the moon upto 10km high... There are very few mountains on the near side of the moon which has the most evidence of lunar mare impact basins.



This is what a crater looks like and mountains are next to it. Are you suggesting that the impact of the crate pushed up the mountains around it?

( you didn't hear it from me... but that Japanese image seems to be an image suggesting the moon is a disk... )

Time to update the FAQ.

Keep the petty arguments out of Debate & Discussion please, guys.
I'm going to side with the white supremacists.

Well, since the FAQ says that there is still debate as to whether the Moon is a sphere or a disk, it seems to not fall under the category of "petty arguments," but rather one of the fundamental nature of the FE model.

Oh, there was another argument that seems to have been deleted. I don't remember who it was.

Wikislap: "The lighter-colored regions of the Moon are called terrae, or more commonly just highlands, since they are higher than most maria. Several prominent mountain ranges on the near side are found along the periphery of the giant impact basins, many of which have been filled by mare basalt. These are believed to be the surviving remnants of the impact basin's outer rims.[15] In contrast to the Earth, no major lunar mountains are believed to have formed as a result of tectonic events.[16]"

This is the great mystery to me as there appears to be tectonic activity on the moon in the form of rilles. Rifts. Please note... Your reference mentions that it is not believed that mountains have formed through tectonic movement.



I think it is fair to say that the closet solar system body to our own planet has many similar features as the Earth. However. We have very few mechanisms which attempt to explain how they form.


I will admit... Those two impact craters seem to have been a head on collision with the moon. For the most part. Strikingly the impact craters on the moon all appear to be relatively head on. I have heard someone try to explain that they are usually head on collisions due to the gravitational interference from the Earth which I give no credibility to as it does not explain in my mind as to why we have so few impact craters on Earth but so many on the moon.

You could probably argue that there is still a debate about it because chances are there's someone out there not currently linked to this site who still believes it.
