If the Earth is Flat, Why is it that some stars are seen only at certain times of the Year? Like Orion is only seen During Winter in North America. And The Southern Cross is only seen across the Equator?

While I apreciate you posting here Goldstein, I want to argue with a true flat earth believer. If one will post here, it will be a great victory for REers

Like the sun, the stars are also expanding and contracting their diameter as they spin around the hub every six months.

But the RET perfectly explains why some stars are only visible at certain times. TYhey are behind the sun. Like, last night I spotted Orion. That constellation is only visible on Earth during Winter because in summer it is on the opposite side of the sun.

Then all those people who live in the Pacific Islands would not see any stars.. But they are known for their navigational ability using the Stars.

Umm, how could they have navigated by the stars if they would never see any stars?

Sorry, celestial gears just can not work (ok, well if you ignore reality it can, but then it still would not work in reality, only in delusion it would).
Everyday household experimentation.

I've been to Pacific islands before, and I have don't see any gaps in the stars overhead.

This could have been sig material if I didn't think you were being completely sarcastic.

Celestial gears is a total joke, the stars do not rotate around 4 poles, nor do they move away from each other at the equator.

So you're saying that in winter, the US is facing away from Orion at night?  What does the Sun have to do with that?

Orion rises in the morning qith the sun and stes with it at night. But we can't see it because you obviously can't see stars in the day time. So it isn't visible anywhere on earth
