Flat Earth Theory / Perception
« on: March 09, 2016, 06:27:47 AM »
Most, if not all, FE supporters anchor their beliefs, theories and arguments in perception.

Are your beliefs, theories and arguments of all aspects of life anchored in perception or is perception limited to or specially reserved for FE theory?

For example, say you fall and break your arm.  You know it's broke because it hurts like hell and may be bent at a weird angle, there is no question of your perception.  When you go to the doctor's office he will take an x-ray of your arm and produce an image of your broken arm so that he knows exactly what he's dealing with.

The rub is that human beings are absolutely incapable of perceiving x-rays.  The image produced is a manipulation, by equipment, to produce a visible spectrum image.

Considering that the average person has absolutely no idea of the true machinations of the x-ray equipment and/or the processing equipment, do you believe these images without question or do you disregard them the same as all images of space travel or distant stars/galaxies, which you label, at minimum, as being manipulated in some fashion?  Since you can NOT see inside your arm and actually perceive the broken ends of the bone do you believe that the manipulated image is, in fact, a true representation of your arm?
