##### Dimensions of Earth- what is pi these days
« on: April 19, 2012, 06:11:04 PM »
If the dimensions of the flat earth are "Circumference: 80,150 km (49,802 miles) Diameter: 40,073 km (24,900 miles)" what happened to the ratio of the diameter to the circumference. Shouldn't it be pi * diameter, and 40,073 times pi is 125,893.042407304 and that is nowhere close to 80,150 why is this?

It would be nice if you had posted your sources for this data.  With out that information, it is kind of pointless to respond.

We're still waiting for a FE map with accurate distances.

We are still waiting for FE to pick one map.  Anytime you pick out a flaw with one they move on to another.

You are making the assumption that a flat earth is circular. There is no reason it would not be triangular or pentagonal. The FE'ers, however, seem fixed to the idea that it's a circle for no reason. Even the "zetetic" ones. Makes a total mockery of the whole idea of zeteticism.

While I agree, it could be any shape, and the term "flat" is very antiquated, the earth is a disc, because, when our spherical sun shines upon it, it lights the visible section, looking like a disc from space, many pictures from space confirm this.
what is its true shape is unknown,  is could be any, or endless, no one has documented what lays beyond the suns light.

Sorry, I thought the pictures from space were faked. Now you're saying they're not? Make your mind up.

It may look like a disc from space, but it woulld look utterly different if the Earth was flat.

most pictures from space are not faked, where did you get this from me?
True Zetetics believe space travel is possible, even faqqers believe it too.
only a very small majority of "flat" society cry conspiracy, unfortunately they are very vocal.

the truth is, until disproven, space travel, orbit, is very possible.

Space travel implies that the Earth is round. That's it.

I got my information from the FAQs so according to your leader those are the dimensions of earth.

The information is in the FAQ under the heading of 'Physics' and is provided courtesy of Roundy. Nice catch Llama. The FES believes that pi is approximately 2.

I believe it was fixed a long time ago in the Wiki's version of the FAQ. You're basically just looking at an old, outdated, largely incorrect version.

For the record, I did not put that there.

Then why is it still in there?
I posted a suggestion in S&C weeks ago - which everyone agreed with - that the FAQ needs to be kept up to date and the only thing preventing this is the FE'ers getting off their backsides and doing it. Unanimously, the other posters thought it was a good idea to sort it out. Why hasn't it happened?

What makes pi 2? if you calculate pi with any perfect circle you get approximately 3.14.

Pi isn't 2. If you look at the FAQ and the dimensions for the circumference and diameter of a flat earth, 80150km and 40073km respectively, dividing the former by the latter gives 2.00009981. Therefore, according to the Flat Earth FAQ, pi is approximately 2.
