Title: The Mind Of A Flat-Earther?
Post by: Petrochemicals on 06/10/2018 02:06:06
The earth is completley flat it is only energons( that that makes up up and down down)  that gives us the impression that it is round. We are on a flat disc, but because the suns heat and energons are affecting space it appears that we "orbit the sun" and  this " orbit" is circular. The much smaller planets and cool non energon producing moon have l, so it appears that they orbit the sun.

As for why no one has reached the edge of the earth, the size of the oceans interlinked with once again gravity is the cause. Distance is a energon measure largley affected by the suns energons making travel easier so seem short distances , where as at the huge outside seas as they are less efected by the energons from the sun as they are further away,  these distances are far harder to travel,  the only way to actually measure distances would be with a rope, and convieniently this has never been done! The huge outside seas coupled with the lack of energons from the sun mean powered crafts amd man is always drawn away from it and take the path of less resistance to the energons of the sun.

Relativity has been  invented to fit  the theory of curved earth, whilst  correct in some aspects it has a number of flaws that do not marry to observations. Whilst the space is supposedly strait our observations of the sun do not become affected by this relativity, that is unless it is a double concave shape, which is just insanity !

What "on earth" is the above all about?

Havenít a clue. It appeared in a thread in General Science on convincing flat earthers that the are wrong. It didnít seem the right place for it so I moved it here.

You're right there; I think you meant to click "recycle bin" didn't you?!

Youíre right, thatís probably the best place for it

I'm pretty sure this is just a parody thread. Energon was some kind of thing in Transformers.

On the contrary; if I were a flat-earther and could be convinced that that was what I believed, I would conclude I was wrong.

I cannot believe that you should derile such an account in such a way. It is a perfectly defined explination of the earth. Even such things as the circular appearance of earth are explanable.

As you can see from the above photo the "circumference" of earth is about 7 miles ?

Derile isn't a verb; what did you mean?
Anyway, try taking a similar picture, but rather than deliberately distorting it with a fish-eye lens, use a pinhole camera.
It's amazing how much better things work when you don't choose to lie about them.

It's that old story. Sphere today, Energon tomorrow!

At school I was taught that projectiles moved in a parabolic path that would only happen if the Earth was flat and of infinite extent if the Earth was spherical they would move in an elliptical path

A lunar eclipse, which happens very frequently, does not give the shadowing of your picture, the normal shadow on the moon is caused by the dark side of what is undoubtably a spherical object. Also you can see the moon and its appearance is not affected by this "relativity".

Edit,

What i meant to say was the glow of the moon is caused by the direct line of the energons from the sun passing through the planet and making the moon glow with a silvery apparance, as there is no way that the sun could be shining its light on the moon when eclipsed by the earth.
