I suppose this belongs here, as it's an external article about FET.

A couple of months ago Thompson struck up a series of e-mail correspondances with yours truly, asking questions about zetetic astronomy, Flat Earth Theory, etc etc.

I'd almost forgotten about it, but after googling "T J Thompson" and "flat" in the same query I found that he has indeed published an article on the site he runs.

http://tjthompson.blogspot.com/2006/08/myth-of-round-earth.html

The article may not be that interesting to FE'ers or well-versed DA's. It comes across with a slight anti-FE conclusion, but it's cool that somebody is taking an interest in the society at least.

Who deleted the posts from this? I know this is the FEIR but surely we can have some discussion?

very cool although the conclusion is a little harsh
Global warming: Liberal hoax
The earth is not getting warmer after all; the effect is really just the prevalence of air conditioning. It just seems warmer when we go outside.

To say all the governments of the world are involved is false, only a select few know, for instance the small countries may not know

Yeah, I think he drew his own conclusion, I never claimed to him that every nation on Earth was involved.

The article made it look like he really didn't give the idea a chance at all anyway.

It doesn't look like any RE's have posted their pet hates here in the last two months.
