The Flat Earth Theory, a self-defeating arugument
« on: October 05, 2006, 11:22:13 AM »
Lets take a look for a moment at the pardighm-rewriting theory that is the Flat Earth Theory. On the one hand we have RE evidence, photos, mathmatical formulae, eye whittness testimony from the dozens of astronauts. On the other we have FE evidence.......uh.....a book written by a 19th Century pseudoacedemic, Samual Robotham and....umm a load of unsubstantiated theories about a giant wall of ice that encompasses the flat earth, orbiting sun that is 32 meters in diameter and an explainatin for gravity [universal acceleration] that would make Terry Prachett roll in his grave. To any newbs reading this: you will find a lot of people argueing about theories and also, you will see FEers trying to weasal out of providing any proof by shifting the burdon of proof onto us.



I'll teach you to move my thread biyach.

Wow...I think I just got owned by a guy who can't even spell...


I guess I'd better rethink everything now. Thanks for the information and the entirely logical and utterly undeniable proof that the Flat Earth Theory is indefinitely incorrect.

I would cry for like a month if Yardstick stopped posting all together.

Isn't Terry Pratchett still alive?

And wasn't your original thread just a rant about the lack of proof, and not actually a relevant topic that actually attempted to discuss the theories of FE?
