Is FE a dogma to you?
« on: August 02, 2019, 07:51:59 PM »
Hey, I wondered, if the FE is dogmatic to flat earthers.. maybe the users here can tell me.. it always seemed to me, that most wouldn't ever Change their mind even when confronted with overwhelming evidence..

If you don't know what a dogma is: a principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true.

Thanks.

If you're not on the side of wise, so you're probably on the wrong side.

Nothing there even hints that gravity is not real. All it says is that:

Einstein's right, at least for now. We can absolutely rule out Newton's law of gravity.

But even that does not mean that "Newton's law of gravity" is not very close where velocities are small compared to c and gravitational fields are small as on Earth or even most of the solar system.

So, no gravity is not a dogma but is quite measurable and no one claims that all the details of the theory of gravitation are known or understood.

What is known is that here on earth and in the Solar System, as Einstein himself, in effect, stated, Newton's Laws of Motion and Gravitation are extraordinarily accurate.

Yeah, I can't say its a dogma if you can't provide an common authority for the belief.

For the flat earthers who started researching flat earth as a result of what they've read in the bible for instance, I think for them, yes, flat earth is a dogma. For them, it's contained within the scriptures, and if they believe god is the authority for the bible, then God is the authority for the flat earth. Usually this is bible literalists who interpret every word in the bible in the literal sense. For others, who get sucked in via youtube videos, it isn't dogma, and most of them are questioning the ideas presented.
