##### Stars?
« on: February 13, 2007, 10:55:01 AM »
This isn't meant to really argue against FE or anything, I'm just curious.  How are stars explained in the FE model?  What are they, how far away are they, what are they made of, etcetera.  I couldn't find an answer with a search, since practically every other topic had the word 'star' or 'stars' in it.

Most FE models allow for the Stars to be what ever you want, so long as they are governed by different physics than the Earth.  The general response is "so what?"  The exact nature of the stars depends on which point of the Flat Earth you're trying to defend.

For example, if you're inquiring about gravity, then you may find the stars to be spheres.

If you're inquiring about the solar cycle, then you may find the stars to be travelling at near the speed of light, shining down a spotlight on Earth.

The simple answer is, they have no clue.

I find it ammusing, as my final project in a class as an undergrad was to make an accurate model of a red giant using python.  Now, there must be thouasands upon thosands of these models created every year by students like me.  Not a single model from the FE people.  I've had a thread open for about a week begging for such a model from the FE community.

I didn't ask you :wink:.  Any FE'ers wanna explain what THEY think stars are, or at least link me to a topic explaining them?  My search-fu is admittedly weak, but I still haven't found anything.

Edit: I'm especially interested in how far away they supposedly are, though any other information is good too.

I like how the vagina is censored, but the rest is left alone.

Uhh...stay on topic?

Who am I kidding!  Vaginas are always a good topic.

Append:  okay, I rescind.

I still wanna know all the details about stars a FE'er can give me.  Yes, there was tubgirl earlier, it got removed.  Back to stars!

Doh

I need to re-re-re-re-read the FAQ.  That would've answered my distance question.  Thanks anyway.
