Satellites-man created ones
« on: August 30, 2014, 11:32:05 AM »
Just Supposing -Earth is a Flat disc-albeit circular, rather like a big dinner plate or better still maybe a clock. (as i've mentioned elsewhere, somewhere)London say is at 6 o'clock, New York is at 9 o'clock, Australia is 12 o'clock, Asia/Europe 3 o'clock, then back to London at 6 o'clock. Therefore any moving object be aircraft or ship going off on a world tour would in effect be going around the world as it's still a circular motion, even in an east-west direction. It would still be possible for satellites to be up there going round and round, but moving around a circle, like traveling around the outer rim of the circular clock or dinner plate as it were?  I reckon a test might be if any aircraft can fly over the antarctic? which i read somewhere hasn't ( on a flat-earth the "antarctic" circles the world on its outer rim. ) Anyway just a thought :-\
Ps. Re: "Others have.
 
How do you know Australia exists if you have not been there?"End Quote.
 
Exactly, we as individuals can believe or disbelieve Australia exists (if we haven't been there) But we can research, we can talk to those who have been there or even meet Australians, they can tell us how we get there, show us photographs (and not mere drawings/paintings) we can believe/disbelieve them, weigh up what evidences exists to support  what we're told and learn. and we can save up enough money and go there for ourselves. We'd know without  doubt a land called Australia actually exist. None of us can take off to the moon to check. My statement was merely an example of swallowing without question what the telly or the radio tells us. Especially by authorities running the world.

Do you people even read what you write?
Additionally, we cannot entirely rule out the nefarious effects of demons, spirits, gnomes, and wizards on our society's ability to comprehend our flat earth as it really is.

What's wrong with what was wrote?
The reality is that we are all just a simple dot on a large mass, separated by water. To travel around it all does not give anyone any real indication of what it actually is they are travelling around, except for what they are told.

If you were to fly or sail on your own, you're not going to be any wiser as to what it is you are flying over or sailing to, except for the known mass of land you are familiar with, which is still not going to give you any real bearing on what you're actually on.

All you can really go with are your senses.

Someone traveling in a constant straight line, with the right access through each country, would have easily proven/disproven FE by now.

Not if you navigate with a compass.  You would simply travel in a circle and think it was a straight line.

To travel in a straight line would mean you would have to literally travel a true straight line, how is that even possible to get back to the same place you started from?

How about using celestial navigation?

Easy.  Travel around the equator bearing either due east or due west.

I think scepti's saying that if you traveled in perfectly straight line you'd go off the globe on a tangent ;)
