Flat Earth Theory / How can the sun be a spotlight?
« Last post by GlobeEarth on Today at 11:20:03 AM »
So,

According to the flat earth theory, the sun is a spotlight that is rotating around the earth. When the sun is directly over you, you can see it and it is the day, and when it isn't, it's night.

But how can this work? How can you possibly only see the sun from one point of view? If the earth really is flat, wouldn't you be able to see the sun from all around the earth? Please don't link to some page from the wiki, but please explain how this phenomenon really works.

There is only one valid explanation for this phenomenon;

The earth is round.

Our plan is working perfectly.

Soon, every American state will vote democratic.

Shush Dave! Every liberal knows the plan of course but if the Toms of the world actually take you seriously it may not work!

Flat Earth Theory / Re: questions about day/night sky

I am eagerly awaiting an explanation of how someone in Salt Lake City looks up and sees light blue over the entire dome at the same time that someone in St Louis sees darkness at the same time.

This means that the person in St Louis is seeing stars against the night sky right through the daylight shinning down on salt lake city.

                                                                               
Stars seen from STL ...        *                                                                                                           Sky here is light blue from SLC
but from SLC, light blue    *                                                                                                               but stars from STL
                                   *
                                    _________________SLC___________________STL_____________________

I truly hope you can explain this.

Jimster I will try to answer your questions but a similar Q &A about sunrise/set was here to start.  https://forum.tfes.org/index.php?topic=18506.0

Flat Earth Theory / Re: How do FE proponents explain flying over the south pole?
« Last post by stack on December 05, 2021, 06:56:19 AM »
Like a frisbee, the Earth wobbles once a year.  And stack you cannot assume your compass will point south on this map...  A Magnetic North Pole is where field lines are vertical to earth.  And I like this map bc the North lands create a basin to hold the majority of Earth's water like a tub, which makes a less dramatic ice wall more realistic to holds Earth's remaining water.

So even though I have compass that points south when I’m facing south you’re telling me it doesn’t do that when in reality it does?

And you realize there is a difference between a basic northern hemisphere compass and a basic Southern Hemisphere compass, right?

And why is magnetic north any different than magnetic south?

Just to be clear, this all is just what you believe and not really based on any science? I mean you realize, on your map, that planes flying from LAX to Heathrow would fly over South America on a straight shortest route shot? They don’t. They generally fly way up over Greenland on a great circle. Which on your map would be 1000s of miles out of the way. That would make zero sense and is not observed in reality.

There's a good thread about this subject here https://forum.tfes.org/index.php?topic=18607.0

I assume the 4 months are around Oct, Nov Dec, Jan?  That would tilt the Earth away from the sun and center it more over Antarctica which allows it to be seen all day.

What sort of tilt are you referring to?

And I still don't understand if I want to fly due north from sydney to tokyo, if north is all around the rim of the disk, which north am I traveling on? Which way am I traveling if I fly from sydney to sao paulo?


Scomato explained what I meant by seasonal tilt, except on FE it is cause by a wobble.

For your second question, from Sydney to Tokyo, you would need to look up the lines of longitude you must travel along - in this case its 150'E...  ..

From Sydney to Sao Paulo, you travel South towards Antarctica then North again to Brazil using lines of latitude and longitude as a reference.

I'm sorry to OP if we digressed from Circumpolar travel possibility to "How actually to fly a plane pole to pole in different earth dimensions."

What wobble are you referring to?

The problem is that north on my compass points to roughly near the North Pole, magnetic north. On your map, if I fly north to Tokyo from Sydney, north on my compass would be pointed in the opposite direction I am traveling. How does that work?

And why have Antarctica in the center of your map as opposed to the arctic? Why did you pick one over the other?
