Andrea Barns did, but she never made it back.

Pretty sure multiple FEs must have to know what was there for their theory.

Oh who am I kidding

Andrea Barns did, but she never made it back.

How do you know that she made it if she did not survive to tell the story? How do you know she is a reliable source?

Also, adding to the original post: what is the commonly accepted theory of the edge of the Earth?
My Earth is round.

A note was found among the remains of her expedition saying that she found it and had pictures to prove it.  Unfortunately, someone carelessly opened the camera and ruined the exposed film.

Lots of FEers say there is no edge and it's just a continuous land of ice forever.

Where can I find a copy of her notes? The ruined photo story is interesting.

I don't know if her notes still exist or not, but her expedition was the subject of a documentary some years ago.  Here is a link: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2602284039812956586&hl=en#

How can you cite her expedition as a valid response if you don't know anything about it? That isn't nice.

No.
They base it off a book called "Earth Not a Globe" as well as alternate and untested ideas that counteract the Round Earth Universe.  Sky Mirror, celestial gears, bendy light, perspective bright light diffusing in the atmosphere to magnifify the image of the sun to make it appear as though it's circular as it goes far away, ect...

What you'll find is that no matter what you say, think, or prove, Flat Earthers will never change their minds.  You also have people who pretend to be a flat earther for the lolz.

Then you have James and Leeve.

Scott of the Antarctic is thought to have reached the Ice Wall prior to his assassination. What lies beyond those great escarpments of ice is lost to human perception.

Which is it? Assassination or lack of sunlight? Your statement was that the area was "lost to human perception", but it seems like those guarding the area would be able to perceive it just fine.

Lack of Sunlight was what I meant, in the sense that if you look out into the darkness you're unlikely to see anything, but since you pressed me with a silly question, I had to give an alternate, irrelvant answer.

Let me clarify then. You are able to illuminate objects which are not illuminated by the sun with light bulbs. This would enable you to see "into the darkness", would it not? How is that a silly question? I'm not the one who stated that area was lost to human perception.

That's why eyes have very limited use. Look into the darkness using something that can read infrared, microwave, or radio and have it translated into something you can recognize. The universe takes on incredible clarity when you use tools to extend your senses.

Well, making stuff up seems to be your area of expertise. And anything that is not at absolute zero produces some infrared radiation. Another possibility is reflection of the radiation coming from the stars.

True story. Anything that has any hint of energy at all will constantly emit electromagnetic radiation. It just so happens that our eyes detect an intermediate level of radiation, ie the visible spectrum. If it was too sensitive, the air in front of us would be utterly opaque.. too little, and you're tripping over invisible surfaces.

Here is some suggested reading...
