Flat Earth Model or Map?
« on: January 31, 2023, 11:08:41 PM »
Since this place seems to have a lot of flat earth believers and you guys seem to have some credits and links for your ideas; can anybody post or send me a model and/or map of the flat earth? A model that can explain multiple phenomena at once (seasons, daylight/nightime, sunrise, sunset, etc.) or a map with a scale and accurate sizes of land masses and oceans. Interested in seeing if any models have been created, been a while since I've looked into the flat earth theory and I wanted to see if any new developments have been made.

Side note:
Also, has anyone explained how parts of the earth can have almost complete daylight and another part have complete darkness all day during winter time (at the same time)? Like Antarctica or the bottom of South America have TONS of daylight whilst parts of Alaska have complete darkness. Is there any model, math, or theories to explain that? Thank you!

Welcome aboard.

I doubt you'll have any better luck getting answers to your questions than any of us have.

The only response to any basic questions has been...
The moon, and therefore, the sun, are 40 to 500 feet above the earth.

With such precision, how can anyone doubt the entire FE cause.

Really? I was hoping after 2 years they would've made SOME progress with SOMETHING, otherwise, why would people still believe in this? I'm planning to write a physics paper on some flat earth theories, I was hoping to get a new model worth looking into, smh.

Come on.  Flat eartherís tend to stick to narratives and generalizations that can be verbally tortured into some crazy logic and patch quilt myth.

They canít actually put anything in black and white that could be easily debunked.

They canít even handle the existence of geostationary satellites that you can be spotted, photograph, provide active services, and use their constant broadcasting to triangulate their positions.

If you Google "Flat Earth Society" and follow the top link, you will come upon a page that links to a Wiki.  Reading the Wiki will give you the same factual information you will get from the FEers on the forum - nothing much.

They revel in trying to attack the spherical earth model (conspiracy, NASA, pilots, mapmakers) and its supporters (brainwashed from childhood), but can do little to actually present a viable alternative.  Nothing new to be seen or heard.

People have a spiritual side to them. Unless you are also studying comparative religion alongside physics, you will never understand flat earth believers.

The flat Earth idea brings God in finitely close with personal warmth for the mind of the believer. This is as opposed to the scientific explanation which offers us as a speck in a galaxy in a cold, empty, infinite universe where God has a lot on his plate and is impersonal.

You do not need to study physics or comparative religion to understand flat-earth believers.  All you have to do is spend some time on religious forums.  You will quickly learn that people will accept things (mostly science) only up until it conflicts with their deeply held religious beliefs.  The more fundamentalist the beliefs and the more intense the early indoctrination was, the less they will accept science.  Fundamentalist Creationists are actually taught to distrust science.  It's an easy step from disbelieving Evolution to disbelieving a round earth and rockets.

Unfortunately, these same people will believe anonymous crackpots like QAnon and anyone else they think shares their anti-science views.  We saw this with the response to Covid and the vaccine.  We saw this with the election deniers.  These people are intent on making America a defacto Theocracy.
