Doesnt this disprove the flat earth theory?
« on: June 22, 2015, 03:01:44 AM »
1.If the earth was flat, the sun was spotlight and we had night and day based on this, then we can conclude that the sun must not be very strong if it cannot even light the entire disc at once!! therefore, how could it light the moon or of the distant planets?(P.S woldnt we see the sun even if it wasnt lighting up our area of the earth disc? since there is no horizion for it to go behind)

If the earth was a flat disc, it would the the only flat disc in our solar system, this would go utterly against the grain and therefore seems to be false

3.if during the lunar eclipse , the earths shadow was on the moon, and the earth was a disc, then the only way that shadow could be on the moon is if the sun was behind the disc!(duh lunar eclipse) but if it was that would go against the flat earth sun movement model and also it cant be behind it since then it would be total night time across the entire disc during lunar eclipse, which it is not!!
if the earth was a disc, then during a lunar eclipse there would be no day time at any point on the earth!!

Not everyone believes in planets or a universe. You're merely going on what you've been schooled into and seeing pictures of a pretty space full of supposed stars and such.

Not everyone thinks it's a flat disc. There are many versions of what is deemed a flat Earth. Flat doesn't have to mean it's pancake flat. Basically it's easier to say flat than to merely mention all kinds of shapes of potential flat.
It's not a globe and we walk on this Earth easily because our feet and balance are best suited to FLAT.
The only reason it goes against the grain is because people have been brainwashed to hell about the Earth shape and a supposed universe full of planets and light year stars, plus all the rest of the absolute utter clap trap.

If you're an expert on all this then just accept your globe and be done with it. You've no need to add to the so called proof. It's all been said and done many times and yet still people don't accept it. I wonder why?

Is it because there's no real experts on this supposed globe. Just people spouting off that it is because that's what they've been told.

The usual flat earth explanation for lunar eclipses,  is that there is an invisible shadow object that magically appears whenever there is a lunar eclipse,  why don't we see the shadow object?   simple,  it's invisible.

wait what? first off, do youi agree that it would indeed disprove the theory if there were planets out there. and wow if you think you can fake buying a telescope yourself and lookin through it to see the beauty of mars or venus or the moon then I can only assume you have psycholocial problems

well what is the shape then? if not a disc? you must know

i notice you really lost it here, you haven't directly answered, you just go on odd tangents, its facts we are realign with, we no lunar eclipse occurs, we know that during it the shadow of earth moves across the moon, therefore if its a disc and the sun was behind it, then the entire face of the disc would have to be fully night or day during an eclipse, which of courese its not, therefore disapproving the falt earth theory

You'll have to excuse sceptimatic,  he's  not  one of the genuine flat earthers,  they are few and far between these days,   I think they all moved to tfes.org  scepti is just a run of the mill tin foil hat wannabee.

A genuine flat earther would have pointed you to Rowbothams equations and calculations for predicting movement of the shadow object and thereby predicting lunar eclipses.

 But even if this postulated "shadow object"(I see it as an extremely obvious attempt to fabricate facts to fit the thoery) it does not explain how the moon recives light during the eclipse? the sun spot light cannot reach the full earth disc, so , how could it even reach the shadow object?

Ha!  That's a new one.

I suppose it explains why nobody can walk up hills or staircases.
