Digging a hole
« on: April 14, 2010, 01:33:01 AM »
Hello

Why dont all you flat earthers get together and dig a really deep hole to the other side of the plane?

That is as practical on a FE as a RE.  In other words, impossible.
Why do we fall back to earth? Because our weight pushes us down, no laws, no gravity pulling us. It is the law of intelligence.

Not impossible, just impractical.

You can't dig through molten hot magma.

Agreed, no matter which school of thought you follow.

You can't dig through water either, but that doesn't stop off shore drilling.

Technically you don't dig through the water silly.

Why can't you dig through molten rock?
Or more accurately, sail through?  The only issue is heat and pressure.  If you can deal with those two, everything else shouldn't be a problem.

Well... Aside from the massive heat buildup from drilling the solid rock that would most likely destroy any and all drill bits.

Just like you don't dig through molten hot magma (which by definition is molten, so that's a bit redundant).

Times 3. I've never heard of cold magma either.

I want to know what happens at the centre of the core if you get past all the immense pressure and heat.

Well, according to Round Earth, the core is surrounded by ionized molten rock mixed with heavy elements like iron.  The core itself is mostly Iron and Nickle.
As the magma spins around the core it creates a magnetic field (flowing ions + metal core = magnet).

When our core finally cools down, life on this planet will be impossible.

I don't see why. The earth doesn't provide the heat for us to live. The sun does.

because the cosmic rays and radiation that are blocked by our magnetic field would get in once the core cools and the field stops being generated.

The most visible results is the Aurora Borialis. The Magnetic field funnels the radiation to the North Pole. The radiation makes beautiful lights as it moves.  The exact science behind it is something I'd have to look up but that's he general idea.

This is all good, but I was more thinking about coping with the spin of the earth and the forces being enacted.
