##### Flat Earth Theory / moons vanishing point
« on: January 16, 2016, 10:13:35 PM »
This is different from my other thread on the suns vanishing point. I feel the answers where decent enough and that that thread is dead. I want to state I'm not I'm an expert on none of this so if I'm completely wrong about something its a mistake please don't attack me just tell me what needs to be corrected.

The reason why I have a different thread for the moon is it has different properties from the sun. The sun is to bright to see surface detail unless you have special equipment. so here we go.

The moon orbits the (flat) earth much like the sun doing a west-east(possible the other way I cant remember) circle around the plate like shape of the earth. The moon remains the same brightness from moon set to rise because of the "dome" that acts as a lens and magnifies its light. The moon stays the same size from moon rise to set because of the same principle. is this correct?

My question is- Since the moon orbits the flat earth in a circular fashion and not in a strait path ellipse over head, like in the round earth model, should we not see an angular change through out the night of its features. elaborating on what I mean, If you face the south outer ring on the (flat) earth and look over your shoulder toward the moon rise it should be angled since its coming into your field of view from behind you and to the side. As it passes over head it will be strait (how we see the moon every night) then as it gets close to its setting point it will be angled the opposite as it was in its rise. If this is to hard to understand because a poor description I could try to make a video to explain it better.

##### Flat Earth Community / Zetetic method VS scientific method. A forum game.

The game is simple, choose which you believe to be better then from your decision write a 5 word or less way that this method has improved life for you and others.

rule 1)Please 5 words or less, I know it will be irresistible for some of you to follow this.
rule 2)Don't dispute someone else's claims, it will jumble the thread and make it a waste.
I realise these rules probably wont hold up because of a lack of maturity but a man can dream.

##### Flat Earth Community / Flat Earth scientists
« on: January 15, 2016, 01:55:03 AM »
Is there any sort of organized science group amongst flat earth believers. By this I mean people who present properly written science papers and put them up to be reviewed by peers and the science community, Who then can have there ideas be properly tested to decide if they are accurate or don't hold up. I feel like these should be steps taken if there are not already to get the flat earth ideas turned into actual scientific theory.

just to clarify scientific theory isn't just an idea someone has.

A scientific theory is a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that is acquired through the scientific method and repeatedly tested and confirmed through observation and experimentation.

Hi, I'm new here. I have been using the "other" flat earth forum but don't seem to get my questions answered. I was told the more knowledgeable flat earthers come here to post so hopefully I can get some help understanding stuff about your ideas.

I got a question about the flat earth sun set. possibly I'm just not understanding a part of it. I'm sure its been discussed but I don't want to sift through piles of forum posts.

In the flat earth idea, the sun sets, because the sun gets far enough away that it goes out of sight. is that accurate?

When I stand at ground level on a beach and the sun sets it goes out of sight meaning it is X distance away which is the distance required for a bright object like the sun to go out of sight (in the flat earth model). I then go into a high rise and can see the sun again but I'm still the same distance away from it where it should no longer be visable. How is this occurring?
like I said I'm probably just missing something in the flat earth sun set model.
