Re: Stew Peters 15-minute Flat Earth Segment

I propose that in an imaginary balloon ride as high as we want to go, the horizon would constantly be expanding, and whether a pizza or a basketball, the edge would look round, in that sense. Right? But traveling away from a ball, eventually we would expect to see the horizon falling away from view...

Re: Stew Peters 15-minute Flat Earth Segment

Are you pointing out that the fish eye lens is distorting the horizon? Not everyone will recognize that. Start watching at 1:00 and see how the curve bends as the horizon move ms away from the center of the screen. But then look at 0:47 and you see a very flat horizon line outside of the open hatch...

Re: Flat Earth

Steve, duh. And Shawn is right, all y’all are assuming the flat earth is a frisbee in the solar system/heliocentric model, with stars a bazillion miles away. This is a very valid point that the round-earthers need to acknowledge. This is essentially what amounts to a straw-man argument, and needs t...

Re: Stew Peters 15-minute Flat Earth Segment

The question is what would he actually accept as proof? If a person can make up a conspiracy theory of unlimited size and scope based on no evidence whatsoever to disregard all evidence, can anything actually be proven?

Serious question.

Re: Flat Earth

Then how could people on the outer part of the disk see a different rotation point?" But how to explain with a flat-earth model? I don't see, I've never seen, an explanation for these observed, indisputable facts by flat-earthers. (Start with the two numbered observations I listed above. Thank...

Re: Flat Earth

Because they’re positioned at similar distances from a center pole. But where's the other rotation point that everybody in three different spots along the rim of the disk are all able to see? They're all seeing the same stars, the same southern pole star, the same Milky Way. They're seeing the exac...

Re: Flat Earth

A response about the Southern Cross: Another mystery, I guess. So somebody in Perth can see halfway across the disk to see the southern cross, but can't see halfway across the disk to see Polaris. And, of course, his explanation completely discredits what people are seeing with their own eyes of a ...

Re: Flat Earth

It’s due to the Law of Perspective - same reason why the sun recedes into the horizon at sunset. How does this explain how people in Melbourne Australia, Cape Town South Africa and Buenos Aires Argentina all see the same rotating point in the sky and the same stars? They're about as far away from e...

Re: Flat Earth

Almost as if we're on a ball spinning on an axis. It's the same visual. It simply is showing a rotation. It doesn't show which one is rotating. The earth rotating or the stars rotating both look the same from the observer's position. We agree something is rotating. It doesn't matter which one to me...

Re: Flat Earth

Can we agree to these facts? 1. In America and Europe, we can see the North Star (Polaris) and observe that other stars appear to rotate around this "pole star." 2. In Australia and South Africa, the North Star cannot even be seen in the sky. PS - I have lived in America for many years an...

Re: Flat Earth

Supposedly, it is strong enough to keep all of us stuck to the planet, without floating off, but weak enough to not pull the moon, sun, and stars into us. The sun has plenty enough gravity to pull the earth and every other planet into it. The reason they don't is because they're in orbit. They're m...

Re: Flat Earth

If you can't see the sun because it's too far away at night, and it's only 100 miles above the earth, how could you possibly see the dome, much less what's above it? I'm not saying we see a dome or through one. The dome has simply been everyone's assumption, despite not being specifically mentioned...

Is there a NAMBLA choir? They should invite them, too. Maybe for the first time, the church could get out AHEAD of social issues, instead of always being last to join the party.

Re: Polygamous Prophet Arrested

Joseph Smith restored the practice of plural marriage. How people have tried to practice it has been their own ideas. People like this guy are clearly doing it wrong.
