##### Magnetic Field in Flat Earth Theory
« on: August 16, 2012, 01:20:57 PM »
If the Earth is flat, how is our magnetic field generated?

In the Round Earth model, the magnetic field is created by the motion of the Earth's molten iron outer core around the solid nickel-iron alloy inner core.

So how exactly would this be generated in a flat disc, or whatever the popular flat Earth model is? Also, how would a compass work in this model? If you travel south long enough on a spherical Earth, eventually you'd be going north. Where in a flat Earth, this wouldn't be the case.

The earth's magnetic field is probably generated by a georeactor.  Your compass sees a pole wherever the field lines vertical component is large. The compass is no longer able to find the north pole at these points. These points are directly above the georeactor and at some distance away in the remote rimcountry.

The magnetic field is caused by molten convection currents inside the Earth's disc. This is the same thing that causes generic continental drift and earthquakes.

I like hypothesis. Let's test it. You have any high-energy sonar equipment?

Scientific research and technology. How do you know the Earth is a flat disc? Even though you must hand wave all of the photos take from Earth's orbit, which have not only been taken by NASA but the Russian, Japanese, Chinese and European space agencies. So this has to be a worldwide conspiracy since NASA is not the only one to explore space. In fact, arguably the biggest 'enemy of the state' in United States History (the Soviet Union) have a well documented space program. It includes countless photos of the Earth (pictured as a globe) as well as manned orbits around the Earth. In fact, the Soviets beat NASA to space. Yuri Gagarin was the first man to journey into outer space. In 1961, Yuri Gagarin made a complete orbit around the Earth in his Vostok Spacecraft. He is long dead but there is plenty of information on him, including a recording his journey AROUND the Earth. A little Google search will prove it.

Hm. Have you ever heard the term "devil's advocate"?

What type of of scientific research and technology told you what the core is made out of?

And how exactly did you come to assume I support this "Flat Earth" theory? Just because I asked you a question? Look at some of my other posts. In fact, look at the one and only thread I started. I think you'll find that your accusing me of being an FEer is quite baseless.

Really?

The REAL question is, how do YOU know that the magnetic fields are generated by magical little leprechauns with unicorns and wizards or whatever goofy junk you guys make up to circumstantially defend preconceived claims?  Remember, YOU are the Flat Earth guys.  It should be your jobs to promote Flat Earth theory and not debunk Round Earth theory.  If you prove Flat Earth theory, it will, in turn, disprove Round Earth theory.  So, why don't you guys ever just stay on topic and show us PROOF of the stuff you guys are saying?  I don't want you guys to disprove that the core is made of iron, I want you to PROVE that the core is made of whatever goofy garbage you say it is.

And yet, that's two people that have accused me of supporting Flat Earth, when in fact the exact opposite is true, and you would know this, if you had bothered to read any of my other posts anywhere else on these forums.

No I was actually legitimately asking a question. I didn't read your source. But my older sister is a geologist. I know there's equipment that can be used to measure wave propagation through the earth, and I know that from the way the waves propagate, we can determine the densities of the substances at varying distances (altitudes?) underneath and within the crust. But currently we can not know for sure what the core is made of, because no one has ever taken a core sample of the Earth.

EDIT: I just saw where my post said "older system", I changed it... it now correctly says sister.

But no seriously, at first I was playing devils advocate. Then I got bored with it, and explained that I understand. I'm no longer advocating any other possible explanation. I gave up, because I have no other possible explanation. It's my sister who's the geologist, not I.
