can a Flat Earth Believer explain this?
« on: March 28, 2017, 09:04:40 AM »
here is a video from a Flat Earth Idea Believer

why does it show the phase of moon in the height of the sun and moon, not from the surface of the earth?

look at time 2:09 (Day 15 at lunar cycle):

the northern region is shown as a new moon
the southern region is shown as a full moon
and for both regions the moon is at day in the sky near the sun.

how does that fit to the reality?

It doesn't.

For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this.

A few things i notice:

-The surface of the moon must be really hot when it's full moon at the southern hemisphere.
-The southern hemisphere only seems to have a full moon during the day, never during the night.
-That's an animation that works for both fall and spring, i'd like to see one for summer and one for winter. (key words: i'd like)
-There is something wrong with how light is behaving in this animation.  It shows a perfectly round circle, with well defined edges, being projected on the earth.  Yet the moon is being hit by the light as well.  So what is it?  Is the moon a spotlight or a ball that emits light?
-The moon seems the be traveling in exactly the same path every single time, meaning that you'd see the moon travel the same path in the sky every single day.  Anyone with eyes and a memory can tell you that that isn't the case in real life.
-No explanation for a super moon?
-Lunar eclipse?
-Solar eclipse?
-Wouldn't the people living underneath the moon's path always see a half-lit moon?

But i'm sure many FEers disagree with this explanation.
