Flat Earth Theory / 25 Questions for Flat Earthers!
« on: May 04, 2019, 07:55:41 PM »
1. On a Flat Earth Model, how can the Earth ever get in between the Sun and the Moon to cause a Lunar Eclipse? It cant be a 3rd celestial body because that object would also block out the stars, which doesn't match observations. If the moon emits its own cooling light, then why do we see it black during a Solar Eclipse?

2. How do the Moon Phases even work on a Flat Earth Model? On an FE Model, the Moon and Sun would be so close to Earth that the angles would be very extreme, and the Moon phases would be different for observers all over the world, again, it doesn't match observations.

3. How do you explain Impact Craters if there is a dome which is impenetrable? If the asteroids are inside the dome, then why don't we ever see them passing in front of the Sun or Moon?

4. How does the ISS stay up? (see my ISS thread first)

5. How does GPS work if Space Agencies are bogus?

6. How does Antarctica receive 24 Hour Sunlight?

7. Why can you seem the Moon during the day but not the Sun during the night if they are both said to orbit the Flat Earth and are sometimes opposite eachother? According to your explanation of seasons, the Sun can get quite close to the center of the Earth, meaning that if you're in the day zone and you can see the Moon during a Gibbous or a Crescent, you should also be able to see the Sun from the night zone, but you don't. Here's a video of the Moon during the day:

8. Where do the Cosmic Rays in Antarctica come from?

9. If the Sun is close to Earth, how are corpuscular rays parallel? (Don't say that they aren't parallel, they only appear to converge the same way that railroad tracks appear to converge)

10. How does the Moon go Red during some Lunar Eclipses?

11. How do Mercury and Venus pass infront of the Sun for everyone on Earth? How do they even transit the sun at all if they are said to be in the dome behind the Sun?
Venus Transit -
Mercury Transit -

12. How do planes fly close to the south pole in a reasonable amount of time? In your model, this would take crazy long!

13. How does the Coriolis effect work on a Flat Earth?

14. If the Sun is small and close to the Earth, why does it get cooler when you go up towards it?

15. If the Earth is flat and everything is a huge conspiracy, then why would they leave such an obvious clue in the UN Logo?

16. How do see different stars in the southern and northern hemisphere, if the stars are said to be on the dome? If that were the case, you could see all the stars from anywhere on Earth.

17. Where does the Sun's energy come from on an FE Model? If its fusion energy, then how does the Sun do it?

18. Why does gravity slightly decrease when you go to a high place or closer to the Equator?

19. Why are NONE of your models to scale or with actual calculations? If the Earth truly were Flat, it shouldn't be hard to make an accurate model.

20. What are the stars made of and why do they shine? (Similar question to the Sun one, however if stars are that very close to Earth, they should be as bright as the Sun if they were the same)

21. How does precession work? Why was Thuban the North Star back in Ancient Egypt, but now its Polaris?

22. What is the firmament made of and why is it impenetrable, if the Earth were flat, you should be able to go up there and make observations.

23. How do you explain SN 1987A?

24. If the Moon landings and all footage from space was fake and NASA is trying to pass it off as real, then why didn't they include the stars?

25. How do you explain the Doppler shift in starlight due to an Exoplanet's gravitational pull?

DISCLAIMER: This will not contain any ISS footage since if i do a lot of people will say that its coming from NASA and therefore cant be trusted, the only video evidence in this video comes from everyday observers. I will also provide Co-Evidence to justify some points.

If the Flat Earth Model were true and the Earth were flat and accelerating upwards at 9.8m/s^2, then how does the ISS stay up for years with only a few refuelings per year, meanwhile an airplane or a helicopter cant even stay up for a few days? In reality, this is because the ISS is falling towards Earth but because its moving very quickly (7.66 km/s), it falls just as fast as Earth curves away from it, i will also provide Co-Evidence to reinforce this idea and to prove that the ISS is indeed in space.

Doing The Calculations of the Glode Model, The Moon is 384,000 km away from the Earth, the ISS is about 960 times closer, at only 400 km away, the Moon is also roughly 3470 km across, and has an angular size of 30 arc minutes as seen from Earth, the ISS is 960 times closer, but also 32,000 times smaller, dividing the 2 values, we get that the ISS should look around 34 times smaller than the moon, as seen from Earth, however, the distance between the Earth and the Moon does vary, from 357,000 km to 400,000 km, meaning that value can be anywhere between 32.5 and 36.5.

When you look at observations of the ISS Lunar Transit, this is very close to reality.

Ima list a few videos of this:

You can also search "ISS Lunar Transit" on youtube and find more of these.

Here's a Pre-Debunked Potential Counter-Argument:

Q: That could also happen if the Moon was very small and closeby.

A: That's why i didnt just present 1 video, instead, on the last video, the Moon is only half illuminated and on the first 2, its a full Moon, If you can explain why the Moon Phases are the same for everyone on Earth, then do it. I've seen some models where the moon gets closer and further from the sun over a 30 day cycle, however those models fail because they dont explain why a Full Moon is brighter even tho the Moon is further from the Sun than in a Half Moon. Even if you managed to explain that part, there would still be the problem that an observer directly below the Full Moon would only see a Half Moon, meanwhile an observer closer to the Sun would see a Full Moon, Also how can the Sun illuminate the Moon but not illuminate places on Earth where it is night, even tho they are closer to the Sun? No excuses for thick atmosphere either, because if you're on a plane, 36,000 ft up in the air, its still dark and you cant see the Sun during the night, but you can see the Moon. Even if you managed to explain the Moon Phases, Lunar eclipses would still be unexplainable, and no, its not a 3rd celestial body, otherwise that body would also block out light coming from the stars for an observer whose location forms a right triangle with the Moon and the Sun, this simply doesn't match observations. If the Moon emits its own light, then you'd still have the same problem, unless the moon was flat and on the dome, and if that was the case, why does it light up like a sphere does in the 3rd transit video?

Q: Why doesnt the Sun steal the Moon?


Q: How do you know the ISS orbits at 400 km altitude?

A: You can measure how long it takes to travel across the Moon's surface and then figure out how high it is orbitting at, if its too high, it'll get damaged from cosmic radiation, too low and it'll take too much fuel to stay up.
