Plate Techtonics
« on: June 19, 2009, 10:28:04 AM »
I read somewhere that the Ice Wall was really just snow capped mountains. Knowing how mountains forms (Can we all agree on Plate Techtonics?), how exactly do these mountains form if they are on the edge? It seems to me the plates would slide off as they have no other plates (its the edge) to push against them and raise mountains?

There are a number of theories dealing with plate tectonics.  According to the "infinite plane" theory proposed by Username, the Ice Wall extends on forever, so there is always a place for the plates to go.  As for the mountains, that's not "confirmed" as being part of FET, as some people believe tha there is only ice.  I'm not sure if any FE'ers would agree with me, but one thought that I've had is that there may be a mountain range on the outskirts of the Ice Wall, then an infinite glacier of ice on the other side.

explain the hawain islands. they have been formed over a hotspot in the earth's mantle and is clearly visible from the chain of islands and the tectonics movement

I subscribe to the idea that there is a cave leading to a lush prehistoric jungle. I call this area the Savage Land.

Prove me wrong.

What are you talking about?  Hawaii was formed from volcanic activity, not plate tectonics.

and here i was thinking FEs actually researched topics they debated on

hawaii has been formed over a hot spot in the earrth's mantle. as the crust has moved over, progressive islands have been formed as the magma upwells.;
take some basic geology you stupid fuck

Back on topic guys?

I did once ask that question but got no reply.  That said, it was in the midst of a thread, so it may well have just got lost.  Plus, it was directed at Tom, so he may well have just ignored me.
I also asked about constructive plate margins forcing plates "off the edge" as it were.  But I see that is covered using the Infinite Plane model.

EDIT:  Plate Tectonics did actually have some effect on the formation of Hawaii.  Tectonics move the crust over the hotspot, creating a chain of volcanic islands.  But I do see your points about the islands not being formed by volcanism caused by tectonic movement.



Killabee and Bridget - don't be  asses.  It distracts from the main thread.

Why would someone blame the volcanoes for creating Hawaii?! It is a paradise on Earth. Same goes for tectonic plates. Is it because they are flat we have to blame them for creating such conical structures?

Yeah "infinity" is not something that the human brain can concieve. Kind of like what's further than the furthest galaxy? Nothing? Is there even time there? Is it a place? Yet it's infinity.

Exactly, and so we are then to suppose that the plain of the earth extends out into infinity? Furthermore, that the elements and compounds necessary to create such a plain would come together is absolutely crazy. Does this mean that the Atmosphere overhead extending to infinity? or does it cut off somewhere? I mean seriously, this has got to be one of the most ridiculous attempts to hold dearly to a horribly outdated "theory" which goes counter to all systems of logic and mainstream science.

Truly, again, I agree. As with my namesake, Galileo, we need to prove this theory wrong against a group which founded it upon invented evidence, ignoring facts. Thus, they will not accept facts under any circumstances, making this the most futile effort we have ever made in our lives. Nevertheless, I need to point out that to form an infinite plane would require, well, infinite resources. Where would these resources be produced from? I myself am Catholic, but believe in a profitable merger of science and faith. The Flat Earthers, to subscribe to an "infinite plain", would have to believe perfectly in creationism, and also that our Lord has nothing better to do than create a gigantic expanse of ice to puzzle us. Also, we would need magical powers to hold this world together, and maybe just assume that the sky is a giant bowl with air in it, with little windows for stars, and the cherubs watch and laugh at our puny ignorance of the all powerful plain that surrounds us. Come now, use the one thing that sets humanity ahead of it's primate counterparts, its reason. Of course, sometimes I am led to believe that there's a reason the word Reason has the same first letter as Round. Divine aliteration, maybe?
Galileo scientifically proved that the Earth is round. He was locked up for it in what was obviously a cover up to defend the integrity of Church and State. Today, I hear that the government is covering up the fact that the Earth is round and not flat?...

Tom you obviously dont understand what I am saying. If an object is flat, it has an edge, what lies beyond the edge of the object? Additionally, that the edge of this object would extend out infinitely? It must in somwhere. Clearly this is not the behavior of other planets who have "edges" which clearly end. So if planets, such as mars which have mountains, they have plate tectonics. I have read that there is a mountain range, perhaps, underneath the ice wall. Of course no one knows for sure...At any rate, how did the ice get there if it is indeed only ice and not mountains?

There are plenty of mountains on Antarctica.

Yes there are mountains in Antarctica and they formed by colliding plates! What does a plate collide with that is near the edge? I believe yall have proposed that Anartica is the Ice Wall? A plate at the edge has no other plates to collide with to go vertical!

« Reply #18 on: June 19, 2009, 05:09:05 PM »
I can only assume (RE'er here) that there is something under the ice for the plates to collide with to form the mountain ranges.  No one has said there's no more plates past the ice wall, or even under it.  Some suggested glaciers, so reason states these glaciers must rest on something.

If the Earth were indeed infinite, how would the Dark Energy 'bow shock', if thats an accurate way to describe it, be able to 'wrap' around it?  According to FE theory, the Earth itself stops the accelerating effects of the Dark Energy on the Earth's surface.

I figured an infinite amount of Dark Energy would be the answer, and it was one given in some of the posts i searched on the matter, though apparently there is no universal accelerator in the Infinite Plane model.

As I recall, Tom Bishop's infinite plane model uses the UA mechanism.

Wait, so gravitational fields are accepeted on the Infinite plane model but not in the finite plane model? (except for celestial bodies)
