Like others, I too blew off FET as someone's joke...but after learning that there are those actual believers, I decided to start investigating the theory. I read through the FAQ page, but before I can get into any kind of discussion, I really need more information...

First, how thick is the earth?

There is an image of the flat earth on the FAQ page. In this image, I'm confused as latitude and longitude lines are really only applicable in a round earth theory.
With the FET theory, it correctly shows Australia as being approximately as wide as it is from Spain to the east end of Russia. In a round earth theory, Australia is much smaller.
In the FET, it should take someone the same amount of time to walk across Australia as it would to walk from Spain to the east side of Russia. Is this true?

The sun is stated as a rotating sphere but the light shown is directional. What kind of experiment can I conduct to recreate this effect?

If the sun is rotating above the earth, why does it appear to meet the horizon during dawn and dusk? What kind of experiment can I conduct to recreate this effect?

I live close enough to Cape Canaveral to see rocket launches. With the space shuttle launches, where did they go, and why did it take so long for them to return?

If gravity does not exist as explained by the Universal Acceleration theory, how do the tides occur?

Technically, if global warming were to melt the ice ridge at the edges of the FET world, it could possibly drain the oceans rather than raise them. Is this true?

Just out of curiosity, why would every known object above the earth be spherical, and the earth be the only object that is flat?

Thanks in advance for any information...

The answer to all of your questions is exactly the same: The Earth is not flat.

If you have been on this  website for some time........hmmmmm........You begin to wonder.......Is it really (Quote widely seen from the Internet "One big hoax or one big joke ?")
Stick close to your P.C's and never go to sea
And You All may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Yes, Never, Never, Never go to sea
Just look out your windows,
Flat ! Flat ! Flat !
Is all that you shall see !

You might get, or not, some answers from my retranslation of a local suns hypothesis.
