Circumnavigation
« on: January 17, 2014, 06:43:56 PM »
How do you explain how I can get on an airplane and fly around the earth?  Anyone can do this and not fall off the edge.  Come at me with your excuses.

Circumnavigation is accomplished by moving in a circle around the earth.  This works the same on a flat earth as on a spherical one.  Not a confusing concept, really.

Then, how is it possible to circumnavigate in any direction?  It is only possible on a sphere.  Checkmate.

Please show me a flight that does that. Which airline?

Is it?  Please, enlighten me as to the scores of people who have completed a circumpolar navigation? 

I'll save you the search. There was only one, the Transglobal Expedition, which departed the south pole and arrived at the south pole.  They merely crossed the surface of the disc.

Of course they don't do it on a regular basis, because it is cold over the Poles and is therefore dangerous to fly over.  It is possible, though, and people have done it.

Scientists fly over the Poles everyday.  Do I really need to waste my time looking for details for you, or will you just concede that this is a fact?

Look at our model of the flat earth. Flight over the North Pole is easy and many flights do this. However no airline flies over the South Pole. Which is easily explained when you consider the South Pole is the rim of the earth.

Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

If you can't demonstrate it, then you shouldn't believe it.

If you went to the south pole, Thork, would you then agree that the earth is spherical?

That would not be conclusive evidence.

As you can see from the flat earth model below, a South Pole is not evidence of a round earth.

lol, that is the same map that you said was dreadful.  Only Tom and Lord Wilmore believe in that map.  You went on and on about how stupid the map is, yet, now you try to present it here, for what reason?

Correct, I hate that map, but I couldn't rule out a flat earth just by visiting the south pole. That's why FET is a comprehensive study of earth's shape.

The only map that makes perfect sense is a globe.  You can be in denial all that you want; however, I am telling you that a flat map is just a representation of a globe.

And the shape of Australia is consistent with actual measurements?

No, of course not.  This map is heavily distorted and even those who subscribe to it (I'm not one of them) will admit as much.
