I know there's several threads asking the question and many people writing in saying there's a south pole star grouping.  And it can easily be proved by just going to the southern hemisphere (I've spent 3 years below the equator).  My question is: do FEer's deny an opposing southern spin altogether or do they have an legitimate explanation for the southern hemisphere's opposite center point point in the night sky?

As the sun moves away from it's upper most position in the sky and closest point to us, it should get slower and slower as it descends.  Based on a flat plane perspective, as it reaches the horizon it should basically come to a stop since it is traveling almost perfectly away from us at that point. 
Above us it is traveling perpendicular to us - so it appears to move it's fastest.
at the horizon, it's moving parallel away from us so we shouldn't see it move at all.

If the the earth is a spinning sphere, it should basically look the same size as it plots across the sky most of the sky until it shines through our atmosphere - which is does.

I believe it is simple universal acceleration, distorted from our view into circular orbits by electromagnetic acceleration.

http://wiki.tfes.org/Atmolayer_Lip_Hypothesis

Actually the center of Antarctica is an area of high pressure: http://www.antarctica.gov.au/about-antarctica/environment/weather

And the idea in the Wiki that the area around the earth gradually drops to absolute zero is hard to fathom. The atmosphere would turn to liquid long before absolute zero, and so that liquid air would either pool on the surface or possibly flow back towards the center and also outwards. I don't think a giant lake of liquid air could hold in our atmosphere as the wiki entry posits. And since cold air is much heavier than warm air, it also seems that long before the air was at a low enough temperature to liquefy, it would tend to flow under the hotter air in the center of our earth, which again would cool the area we live on drastically.

And I am curious why you would refer to the Wiki when it clearly is suggesting that the earth fits the unipolar model. Do you personally believe that Antarctica is a continent or an ice ring around the earth? Or are you undecided, so you refer to both models as needed to answer questions?

And how would you answer this question in regards to a bipolar model? What lies beyond the area of the flat earth that we live on in the bipolar model? More ocean? A different ice ring? Why have humans not traveled beyond the edge in the bipolar model if there is no ice ring patrolled by armed guards stopping them? In the bipolar model, why are there warm areas near the edge of the earth and cold areas (the poles) surrounded by warm areas? In the globe earth, there is one central band of warmer temps around the equator that then gradually cools as one approaches the poles. How do the cold areas form in the middle of the large circular warm areas that would seem to exist on the bipolar map if the sun circles the poles as you described in another thread. And why wouldn't the oceans on the side of the south pole that is farther away from the the north pole than the south pole itself freeze in the southern winter when the sun gets nowhere near them. The area around the south pole tends to form more ice in the southern winter, so why wouldn't the area beyond the south pole which is also in constant darkness freeze during the southern winter?

As usual, the flat earth model raises many more questions than it ever answers.

Um......Tom, we did find planets like Neptune that can't be seen with naked eye.

Incorrect. Please see the chapter The Planet Neptune in Earth Not a Globe.

We have also discovered very distant orbiting objects like Pluto, asteroids, dwarf planets, and comets all with telescopes.  You can't those with naked eye yet we found them.

This example is a bad one. The discoverer was photographing the same part of the sky over and over again in a telescope and accidentally discovered Pluto. It was not until the last the last 30 years that it was discovered that there are actually many similar dwarf planet orbiting the sun the size of Pluto and that it's nothing special. This is why Pluto is no longer a planet. There are many similar bodies that exist in the solar system.

https://theplanets.org/dwarf-planets/

According to this link we are nowhere close to finding all of the dwarf planets in the solar system and there may be as many as 10,000 in the solar system yet to be discovered. It's not easy to discover things that have to be found with a telescope. How does this correlate with your assertion that these things are so easily discoverable?

Flat Earth Q&A / Planet rotations

What force keeps the other planets rotating around the sun?  What force keeps the sun and moon rotating around the earth?

Yea, 68 years of infrared astronomy and we just keep on missing it.

Who is looking for it?

No one, but is kind of odd that in all the infrared pictures taken of the sun, this object is still undiscovered.

If we could not see the stars or celestial bodies with the naked eye, and our only access to the heavens were through observatory telescopes, we would have never discovered the planets.

Does Bill Clinton really fit the bill? Pretty sure their net worth before the presidency was low compared to other presidents, and Hillary was making more than he was.
