Is only Earth flat?
« on: February 07, 2018, 12:27:41 PM »
I'm curious, if the Earth is flat, what are the rest of the planets like? 

To clarify, some FE opinions I've read state that the other planets are indeed globes.  How can this be? 

What exactly do FE supporters believe about the universe?  Does it exist, or doesn't it?  Are other planets spherical in shape or are they not?  Why would Earth be flat and not the rest?

According to FE, only the Earth is flat.

We're special.

Many of us do not believe the Earth is a planet.

Why isn't the earth a planet, and why is everyone other planet a planet?  What is the point of Earth being a flat disk?

Your question seems to be "I assume Earth is a planet. Why isn't it a planet?"

FEers who assume it's not a planet could ask you "Why isn't a giraffe an insect, when every other insect is an insect?"

Discussions here often assume a lot of preconceived notions. To let go of them is to be closer to understanding.

Planets are little dots of light in the sky.  Look below your feet.  It is not the same thing.

Yes, planets do look like little dots in the sky.
Unless you own or have access to a telescope.
Then they kinda look like little balls.

If you have access to a real kick ass telescope,
You will see they are actually quite big balls.
It's indisputable, you can see the spot on Jupiter.
It moves across the surface of the plant.

Instead of arguing, why not buy a telescope and use it?

Bullshit. You look at Jupiter you can not 'see it as a ball'. Can you see depth on a 2D surface? You see a flat circular disc. Who is to say the rest of the planets aren't flat and they are simply facing us in a way we see them top side.

Explain the "red spot" of Jupiter.
How it moves across the surface of the planet,
One side to the other.
Then magically appears where it started.
Except it's not magic, astronomers can predict when the spot reappears.
Kinda makes you think of a sphere revolving at a constant pace.

You got a better explanation?

In my view, the other planets have the same physical properties as Earth i.e. they appear and behave spherical but are flat. This is also true of stars, asteroids, and ping-pong balls.

How do you know about the other planets? What source of information do you rely on, have you actually seen either Neptune or Uranus? Please enlighten.

How do you know what the nature of my sources are? How do you know what I think I know? Take Uranus for example I might ,based on my sources, not believe in its existance, as Iíve never seen Uranus up close.

You do understand that something that is hundreds and thousands  of millions of miles away wouldn't look the same as the ground you're standing on, right?

Do you honestly believe the other planets are flat disks appearing vertically on to us locked in that position to fool us?  And what keeps them locked in that position, motionless in space, and by whom? And for what purpose?  I do not mean to criticize, I am looking for an honest and plausible (that falls in line with the laws of physics) opinion to help me understand the FE point of view.

Yes, its so frustrating that none of their opinions go beyond "I'm right, you're wrong, shut up" whenever anyone asks an intelligent question.  Another behavioral trait I've noticed, FE supporters written speech skills seem to be sub-par.  Grammar, spelling, general coherence, it seems to be lost on them.

I really would just like an answer as to why they believe these things that are so obviously counter to know scientific principles.

I think your missing the point. On what basis can you pass comment on any planets other than the ones that can be seen with a modest telescope. How do you know Uranus and Neptune actually exist? In all honesty how much time have you spent observing and researching the planets? Many people on this site pass comment on things they no little or nothing about. So my question to you isí; how much do you know about the planets and how did you come by that knowledge.....and please donít say ď the same way as youĒ as that would be infantile.

I have studied science and that is how I came by my knowledge of planets. I'd say that knowledge is pretty extensive (some people sleep under glow-in-the-dark stars; I used to sleep under a timescale of the universe's expansion) but obviously, it pales in comparison to astronomers.

Dual Jupiter or a conveyor belt.
In other words you haven't got a clue, you are guessing.
OK, I'll just accept that you can't really explain the red spot on Jupiter.

Let's try something else.
Back to the telescope, point it at a full moon.

In the centre of the moon the craters are all circular.
As your vision moves to the outer edges of the moon,
The craters become noticeably more oval shaped.

Also the centre craters don't have shadows.
The ones near the edge do have shadows.
What's your best guess on these points?

Some FE's say the earth is not a planet brecase the flat earth is stationary.
It does not revollve around anything.
The sun, the moon and the whole universe revolve around the earth.
The earth is the center of the universe.
So is the FES.
Every thing revolves around them.
Stick close , very close , to your P.C.and never go to sea
And you all may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Look out your window , see what you shall see
And you all may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Chorus:
Yes ! Never, never, never,  ever go to sea !

Or the flat earth is constantly accelerating upwards because gravity doesn't exist.
Stars and planets are simply lights on a dome or in the aether.

Some believe in a dual earth.
Some believe it's just all done by a god.
Some believe the moon is self illuminating.
I apologize to the ones I'm leaving out.

All FE'rs say rockets and satellites are fake.
Rockets and satellites are simply impossible.

And what particular branch of your astronomical studies have led you to this conclusion?
Iím often baffled by people on this forum who make grandiose claims about a subject thatís based on no more than a whim. Do you often have problems playing ping pong?

String theory is one example. Geometry is another (although not an 'astronomical' study).

So your study of string theory has lead you to the conclusion the earth is flat despite simple observations that prove otherwise. Could you share your incorrect calculations, or like so many around here, is it stuff you just made up.
