##### Flat Earth Theory / Do meteors exist in UA model and if so where do they come from?
« on: November 11, 2017, 08:54:52 AM »
People claim to see meteor showers around the world.
If they exist does this disprove the UA model as they are, under the model, accelerating upwards at 9.81m/ss until they enter the atmosphere where they start to stop?

##### Flat Earth Theory / How can the sun cast light in a circle when it covers half the earth?
« on: November 08, 2017, 02:11:55 PM »
In FET the sun casts light in a circle beneath it.
However on the equinox each point on earth is in daylight for exactly 12 hours a day.
That would require the sun to on average light half of the earth at any given moment.

The wiki shows the sun casting light in a circle of half the diameter of the earth which only lights a quarter of the earth at once and lights the inner parts much longer than the outer.

What is the correct shape of the light that the sun casts?

##### Flat Earth Theory / How can FET explain all properties attributed to celestial gravitation
« on: November 04, 2017, 08:41:05 AM »
The wiki states that celestial gravitation is the cause of changes to perceived gravity, so to match observations attributed to celestial gravitation it must meet these criteria.
1 Is significantly lower across the equator.
2 The overall force lines are parallel to the earth's surface so are from a very distant object or uniform object.
3 The force increases with inverse square law.
4 Celestial gravitation speeds up time, taken from observations of time dilation on mountains.
5 Makes objects weigh more while travelling west than east.
6 The source is getting no closer to the earth over time.

Does FET have any explanation of how these match celestial gravitation?

##### Flat Earth Theory / If you believe in UA why would gravity be weaker inside a mineshaft?
« on: November 02, 2017, 09:57:55 AM »
The wiki argues that objects fall due to the earth constantly accelerating and gravity is weaker at higher altitudes due to celestial gravity. The closerto the sky the weaker the downward force as the celestial gravity is pulling you up.

But there is less gravity underneath the earth's surface such as in a mine shaft.
How does this explain the downwards force being weaker the further from the sky you are?

##### Flat Earth Theory / How does FET explain an object heading east weighing more than one heading west?
« on: October 31, 2017, 02:40:55 PM »
The Eotvos effect is described as the apparent change in gravity or an object moving either east or west.
When an observer is travelling east they will experience more gravity, and when heading west will experience less gravity.
This effect is at its strongest on the equator.

How would this fit into the flat earth model of gravity?

##### Flat Earth Theory / How does FET explain the Lowhigh tide?
« on: October 22, 2017, 01:13:15 PM »
The wiki states that the high tide is caused by the sun or moons gravity pulling on the water. This does not explain why a high tide would appear on the opposite side of the equator.
Would the flat earth not have a low tide at the furthest point from the sun?

##### Flat Earth Theory / Why does FET assume that the north pole is the centre and not the south pole?
« on: October 17, 2017, 10:45:31 AM »
Every flat earth theory map I have seen put the north pole in the centre of the map.

How do you know that the ice wall isn't in the North? Is there any evidence to support this?

##### Flat Earth Theory / Why is there a ring of lower gravity 10,000 KM from the centre of the earth?
« on: October 14, 2017, 07:40:01 AM »
The gravity at the equator is 9.780 m/s2 at the pole is about 9.832 m/s2, where I am the gravity is about 9.81 m/s2

RE say that the lower gravity is caused by the earths rotation and the centre petal force.
How does the FE theory answer this?
