ask me about round earth fact
« on: March 29, 2015, 11:26:20 AM »
in an effort to keep all discussion and refinement of the fact in one place, rather than the multiple threads covering the forums, please direct any questions you have about round earth fact to this post.

if you are unfamiliar with the basic model, it's been stated since the civilization of ancient Greeks, you flat-brain sheeps.

if something has already been answered either in this thread, or the original, i will ignore you as i am tired of having to repeat myself if you add nothing new. further, if i have you blocked, i will read your posts for the purposes of this thread, but i will hold you to this rule far more strictly.

ask away.

If you want I could help answer some questions.

this is one of the most intelligently written posts you've done, congratulations.

i have two questions.

first, if the earth is round, how does this prevent fairies existing? it seems to be exclusively round earthers who disagree with that statement, i'd like to know why.
second, what evidence do you have that the earth is round, which is not rooted in observation? (after all, observation and deduction is apparently not enough to establish flatness).

If earth is round, why is a 2-way ticket from New York to Jakarta cheaper than a ticket around the world?

Because more people need to fly from New York to Jakarta and so there are more people buying tickets for those planes meaning that each ticket is cheaper.

First - I see no coincidence between shape of the Earth and fairies which don't exist.
Second - for example - round Earth math is always correct when flat Earth math is giving chaotic results.

the majority of round earth math is based on observation. their explanations relate to a round earth, but similar explanations exist on a flat earth, and often the same math will apply. i can use the same equations and rules, and herald that as evidence of aether pulling us down, or of the movement of the aetheric whirlpools. why is it acceptable for round earthers, and not dual or flat earthers?

So, since I asked the questions about how you reconcile chemistry without gravity in JRowes thread, I would like you to explain the formation of elements using gravity.
I also would like you to explain the orbits of the planets using gravity.
The third question i have is about satellites.  How do they work and how are they put there?
