I would like to know how this community of open minded people would react to the idea of the earth being flat. The idea has really engulfed a lot of the internet community and I was wondering if anyone here would be willing to look into it(not believe). It truly is mind boggling with all the facts that are observable being put forth. Please don't scoff at it. Give me some light feedback if you don't mind. I hope that this movement of revolutionary proportions takes off.
Robyn I've watched a couple of things on this, and personally to me, they don't stand up to scruntity. Eg 1) Byrd flew over both poles, so did Elgen Long in 71, neither died or flew off the edge! 2) short flight from San Paola to Johannesburg is 9 1/2 hours, about the same as Paris to Vancouver (impossible if the earth was flat) 3) if the flat earth theory was correct then many parts of the earth would see the dark side of the moon. 4) the Coriolis effect in the north (? Possibility if the north is in the centre of the 'plate') 5) the opposite direction of water between the two hemispheres would be impossible. 6) occums razor - the simplist explanation is the most correct! We are a non moving flat object in a protective dome, surrounded by nothing, with a projection of stars? Or we live on a living global rotating planet that surround by other planets, solar systems, glaxacies, etc that makes the above points possible, and is affected by what happens outside of the earth! Hope this helps!
