Flat Earth General / How is a lunar eclipse explained on the Flat Earth?
« on: October 29, 2016, 05:04:39 AM »
Are there any FEers on this site who are able to explain in their own words how a lunar eclipse is explained on the Flat Earth? I am very interested in having an actual discussion about this.

Flat Earth General / Is "gravity" caused by infinite acceleration?
« on: October 19, 2016, 09:06:44 PM »
I know this has been discussed and I did look up a few threads on it, but I would still like to start a new topic about a specific question I have.

If the speed of light is 299792458 m/s and we assume an acceleration rate of 9.8m/s2, then we should be able to divide (299792458/9.8 )  to come to the conclusion that we will be travelling at the speed of light in 30591067 seconds. Or around 354 days. If this is not the case, I would be very happy if someone would take the time to explain to me what the velocity of the earth would be in m/s after 354 days?

Why would governments etc. go to such lengths to deceive us about the shape of the earth? This so-called conspiracy would have had to have started a thousand years ago and been upheld by multiple countries, societies and eras. This would be a nearly impossible feat. And to what end?

Also, are scientists part of the conspiracy or are they being "duped" along with the rest of us?

Flat Earth Q&A / Why is it hard to believe the earth is round?
« on: October 04, 2016, 02:58:42 AM »
What I want to know is why FEers think the earth is flat when we can see that the moon, sun and other planets are round.
My room contains 5 pieces of furniture. 4 of them are chairs. How dare you try to tell me that the 5th item might be a table?!

This logic is ludicrous. The Earth is not other planets. You can't ascertain anything about the Earth's shape merely from the shape of other celestial bodies.

The logic is not ludicrous. I agree that the fact that the other planets are round is not proof that the earth is round. It is definitely an indicator though. And for that matter, what shape do you really think the earth is? You say it's flat but what about the other dimension? Is it a cube? An icosahedron? People who say the earth is round do not mean that it is 100% spherical, only that it is somewhat spherical. Any three dimensional object has the characteristic that if you keep going in one direction you will eventually come back to your starting point. So when you say the earth is flat what exactly do you mean?

BTW I am interested in answers from members of this site, NOT links to rambling youtube videos.

Hello,

I just joined this site. I am not a flat-earther so I hope it's OK that I'm here. I wanted to ask a few questions regarding the shape of the earth. First, if you leave from any point on the earth, say in a plane, and continually travel in a straight line east will you not eventually end up where you started? If you did this only once from one location you would only have proved that at least the earth was disc shaped. If you went further north and/or south and did the same thing you would have proved the earth was at least cylindrical. If you did this numerous times at different latitudes and fairly consistent elevations you could soon get a pretty good idea as to whether the earth had the characteristics of a sphere by measuring your distances. I have no idea what flat-earthers believe regarding the magnetic field, but you could do the same thing by travelling in a straight line along a line of longitude. Depending on where you started, your compass would likely change directions a couple of times.

Also, if you stand on the shore at the ocean and watch a ship coming or going you will see it rising into view or falling away from view respectively. This becomes more evident if you have some binoculars or a telescope.

These are things that aren't that hard to do, and in fact have been done. They do not require any input from NASA or any other government organization.

Since these are such simple suggestions, I'm sure they've been answered. However, I don't know your answer to these questions since I am new to this site, but I would like to. Hence, this post.
