North pole Sunlight.
« on: August 06, 2017, 08:48:48 PM »
Hi can anyone who knows tell me:

With the current Flat Earth Theory
If im at the North Pole in mid summer so i can see the sun at midnight in a direct line with the UK for instance and the Sun which according to flat earth theory is in the Southern (Outer) Hemisphere. Why cant people at exactly the same time as me see the Sun from the UK. but i can from the North Pole??

What makes you think that you would see the sun if the UK cannot?

This is not the problem with his question when he's laid out that he's at the North Pole. Both RE and FE agree this location gets sunlight at midnight during some times of the year.

I think the answer to your question is FE refraction, which you can find more about in the wiki.
FET - A few old books making claims and telling you how things must be based on the words contained therein. This sounds familiar....

I looked through it but couldnt find much on the question.
Are you saying the people in the North polar region are looking at light thats been bent across the hemisphere somehow? How would this be possible as the Suns position at Midnight is the opposite side of the North Pole. IE an observer  looking at the Misummer/midnight Sun from the North pole would have to look in the opposite direction of where the Sun is supposed to be on FE

ive confused myself with my own queston -:)

Sorry, I'm not entirely sure what you're asking. Could you try once more? Remember that time zones exist just about right up to the North Pole, so you might want to specify a time zone that you are in, and being just South of the pole in that time zone. Might make things a bit clearer to try and give you a better answer.

Ok ill try it again  :)

If im at the North pole in Northern hemispheres summer and on mid summers night. At Midnight i can see the Sun. If im right The Sun is directly South of my position in the Southern hemisphere according to Flat Earth Theory. So imagine a Clockface im at 12 oclock The Sun is at 6 oclock (Below the Equator because its FE Northern hemisphere summer) Now imagine a place directly between us for example the UK. How is it i can see the Sun but people in the UK cant even though they are closer to the Sun and the Earth is Flat?

When the Northern Hemiplane is in summer, the sun is over the Northern Hemiplane. Why do you believe that it is over the Southern Hemiplane when it is summer in the North?

What shape is the southern hemisphere according to your thoughts?

Sry yes i got that wrong. I agree.
But at midnight (Mid summers day in northern hemisphere Summer ) the Sun is observable from the north pole at midnight. How can this be if the Sun is Shining only down on the opposite side of the Earth? People who are in darkness (South of the North pole) cant see the Sun but from extreme northern positions other people can. How if the Earth is flat?

Can you illustrate this question? I am not following along.

Please provide a diagram showing the northern and southern hemiplanes you refer to.

Can you link to any form of Flat Earth lore discusses this load of malarkey, or is this just something you made up?
