These are from the FAQ's:

The tides exist due to a slight see-saw effect on the earth. As it goes back and forth, the water rushes to the side that is lower. Note, this is a very slight wobble. Remember, these wobbles are created by very minor earthquakes. They keep the tides in check. Notice that large earthquakes result in large tides or "tsunami".

This breaks conservation of energy and would NEVER produce the observed bulge in the oceans. what this discribes is a great tidal wave that would constructively and destructively interfere as it reflects off the sides of the Earth, we don't see this.

The magnetic field is generated in the same fashion as with the RE.  Thus, the magnetic south pole is near the geographic north pole, just like on the RE.  The magnetic north pole is on the underside of the Earth.  The Ice Wall is not the south pole, but acts as it, as it is the furthest from the center of the earth that you can follow the magnetic field.  The field is vertical in this area, accounting for the aurora australis.

But in REt, the mag field is created by the dynamo effect of the spining fluid outer core around the iron and nickel inner core. If the Earth is flat then this is not possible.

You're mistaken.  On a round Earth, the Coriolis effect adds at most one (counter)clockwise rotation per day; fewer as you get closer to the equator.  The water in your toilet/sink/bathtub/funnel spins much faster than that (probably at least once per minute, or 1440 times per day) so the additional/lost rotation from the Coriolis effect wouldn't be noticed.

Your forgetting storms, as well as the formation of Hurricains (The colriolis effect explains why tropical storms can't form at the equator).

The radius of the sun's orbit around the Earth's axis symmetry varies throughout the year, being smallest when summer is in the northern annulus and largest when it is summer in the southern annulus.

Conservation of energy?

The sun and moon, each 32 miles in diameter, circle Earth at a height of 3000 miles at its equator, located midway between the North Pole and the ice wall. Each functions similar to a "spotlight," with the sun radiating "hot light," the moon "cold light." As they are spotlights, they only give light out over a certain are which explains why some parts of the Earth are dark when others are light. Their apparent rising and setting are caused by optical illusions.

What, cold light, LOL. The moon clearly reflects light and produces NO optical radiation of it's own. If it did, how can you explain the phases.

How does the sun create it's energy. At only 32miles across it must be pretty special.

Quote
Some models claim that the moon and stars have a slight gravitational pull, but other models hold that gravity does not exist anywhere in the Universe, thus gravitational variation is either a myth or caused by another phenomenom.

Myth, LOL.

This argument is a non sequitur.  You might as well ask, "How is it that snakes do not have legs, but dogs and cats do?"  Snakes are not dogs or cats.  The Earth is not a star or the moon.  It doesn't follow that each must have exactly the properties of the others, and no more.

Correct, the Earth is not a star or the moon. But it is made out of matter all the same. so the argument that it is a non sequitur is rubbish.

The Ice Wall is between 40 and 50 thousand feet high, and holds in not only the world's oceans, but 40000-50000 feet of atmolayer as well.

The atmosplane would still escape.

oh, and an ice wall that high would melt very quickly.

(Presumed answer: The airline pilots are misled by their GPS, or are deliberately conspiring to make it appear that the flights take different times)

misled or not, time to you is still time, and fuel runs out.

That's why we have the DEF to prevent any atmo-diffusion from taking place.

So why can light escape.

The DEF doesn't hold electromagnetic radiations.
