Flat Earth Q&A / Re: What about World's End?
« on: August 13, 2017, 08:13:07 PM »
Actually, I take back my statement about you being pleasant to discuss with.
Well that hurt my heart a little.

All I wanted was for you to acknowledge that not everything in Round Earth Theory was straight forward and easy to explain, and that some things are incorrect ... such as full moons. So that you wouldn't hold me to account on every little semantic point, when you don't hold your own beliefs to such scrutiny. You probably never even considered that a full moon is impossible on a round earth, yet you have known about them all your life. And yet 5 mins into Flat Earth theory, you are trying to tear it to bits looking for any tiny flaw in explanation.

Some things you should always consider when asking flat earthers questions ... we don't have a flat earth google, we don't have the weight of the world's scientists to lean on, and we don't know every last piece of physics of the universe any more than round earth scientists do. Regular scientists can't explain gravitons. They can't even isolate them. But yet a flat earther needs to prove in minutia the concepts of universal acceleration. This isn't a forum run by God and His angels. Just people who question what they are told. I'd always rather be one of those people.

Any time the moon is within a few degrees or less of passing into the shadow to create a lunar eclipse is a full moon. You need to look at it from more than a single angle.
In a round earth 'full moon', the moon is said to be 5 degrees off the ecliptic. The very notion that it is a ball and 5 degrees off, means there is no way you could ever view the full shining face of the moon and still be stood on earth. Ergo, there is no such thing as a full moon.
Sorry about hurting your heart. You just effectively restated what I said. You are right, there is no such thing as a full moon - full as in 100% illuminated when observed from Earth. This article should answer all your questions about this. If not, I'll gladly answer them and listen to your explanation as to why the explanation given in the article is not valued. (there seems to be a displaying / typing error on that site that makes all the apostrophs appear as question marks)

You have yet to produce any explanation for how the moon can possibly appear full on a Flat Earth. I'm waiting.

I believe that the Moon can be observed as full.  Due to the Sun being much larger than the Moon, it would always (unless obscured during a lunar eclipse) illuminate slightly more than 50% of its surface.  When observing the Moon from the Earth, we can see slightly less than 50% of its surface because of the Moon's size.  Because of the slight variance, I believe that there will be times when the Moon is near a lunar eclipse, it would be observed as full.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I did some online snooping, and it seems that what I am describing would be considered a "penumbral eclipse" where the Moon would appear to be a perfect circle, but no point on the Moon would be totally shadowed by the Earth.

Flat Earth Q&A / Is the Southern Hemisphere (Outer Region) Colder?
« on: August 13, 2017, 12:52:59 AM »
So I'm new to this, and I have seen models where the Sun rotates around the North Pole shining down on our flat Earth.  When the seasons change, the Sun's circular path varies from a slow, tighter rotation over the Tropic of Cancer to a faster moving, but much longer path above the Tropic of Capricorn. This model would make the outer regions of the disc much colder as there is a much larger land mass to cover.  Can someone please explain?

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Using airline flight data.
« on: August 12, 2017, 07:18:05 PM »
My GPS tells me speed and distance accurately.

And how do you know that the speed and distance is accurate? Even at the scale of a car, the GPS speed is inaccurate when compared to the car's speedometer.
Really? Because mine is pretty spot on within 1 MPH usually. As long as I'm not changing speeds faster than it's refresh rate. It also does a pretty damn good job at giving arrival times, which means it needs to be fairly accurate for speed, distance, and current location.

The reason for your 1 MPH discrepancy is because you are assuming that your wheels are round.  Change your calculations from circumference to length, and you will be spot on.  This proves our flat wheel theory.
