Flat Earth Theory / Why the space mission failed?
« on: September 03, 2018, 10:18:51 AM »
Hey there! I've got an other question which only just occurred to me (if this has been addressed all ready I would appreciate to be pointed to right direction).

If the Earth is flat, why did the space mission fail?

I know this sounds a bit weird, but bear with me. There are plenty of reasons why going to space is incredibly difficult, just the sheer enormity of the distances makes it both dangerous and expensive to make it even to the nearest of destinations. On top of that there is a myriad of other difficulties posed by the atmosphere, gravity and the Van Allen belts just to name a few.

However, quite a few of these complications would seem to disappear when assuming the flat earth model. So why is it impossible to make space flights high enough to be level with The Sun, observe the whole of the Earth etc. which would have led to the discovery of flat Earth ?

I understand that this isn't a question to which there can be an answer backed by empirical evidence but I would appreciate your theories and ideas.

Flat Earth Theory / Reliability of senses

Hello, I'm new here and I find this whole forum fascinating. I hope my question is something a bit different as I understand you might find answering the same questions over and over a tad tiresome.

 I've read quite a few of the debates and one of the things that stood out for me in the arguments given by the flat earth proponents is that they unfailing trust the evidence given out by their senses.
By this I mean that the most compelling evidence for flat earth seem to be the fact it looks flat, it can't be spinning because we can't feel it etc.

What I'm curious about is why you think human senses (which are relatively imprecise and can be fooled by both natural and man made phenomena) and perception (which is inherently limited and biased) are the best me and to draw conclusions of reality?

Hope this is the right place for this question and thank for any answers in advance
