Why can you set a sphere on the level ground and not have it start rolling? For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. The earth is
moving, why does a sphere which is not biased to "lay on a side", not start rolling the opposite direction the earth is moving?
If the curve of the earth lies at around 25 miles, why can we see things that are hundreds of miles away through a telescope?
Why did the meaning of Gravity change from "weight" to something that doesn't exist?
Why do objects get smaller as they move away from you?
Why do rainbows bend like a dome?
Why can't you feel the earth rotating, but you can feel the earth quake?
Why does lava come up from the core if the core is what is holding everything down?
How can there be a full moon in the sky with the sun sometimes and not others when our vantage point doesn't change? (don't worry about answering
that one, everyone has already along with pictures, but thanks)
Why are the sun and moon the same size perspective wise and why don't they appear oblong like a football since we are viewing them through the arc of
the atmosphere? Try looking through a magnifying glass at something, it is distorted until you get right up on the object. Why isn't the Sun, Moon,
or stars completely distorted through the arc of the sky?
What are the advantages to be gained by church and state, stating the earth is round and floats in the middle of a vast universe that no one could
even begin to wrap ones mind around being so enormous? What advantages come by telling people that what they see isn't right such as the sun moon and
stars traversing in the sky as apposed to outside of it?
Think about it from that vantage point. How can people be controlled by government, if they the people believe that they are it, the supreme masters
of reality? They can't, so you tell them they are nothing in such a vast universe. You do this for one or more generations providing evidence that no
one can see feel or experience themselves outside of a video or broadcast and you have a nation of people that will believe anything you say, as long
as it is on the TV.
It used to be, that men would find out for themselves what the truth is having no opinion, nor garnering one until they themselves could say it was
so, having been witness themselves. This was called "your word". It was at one time, the only contract needed between folks and they could give
their word having proved it's worth meaning you didn't say something was so if you had not been a part of it. That didn't mean you denied someone
else their experience, it meant that unless you were a part of the thing being validated, you didn't comment on it having no ground to do so
(regardless of your personal opinion).
Is the world flat? I don't see how it couldn't be, but until I see the sphere of the earth myself, I don't have the right to say it is a sphere...I
walk on flat ground, I float on flat water, I sleep flat, I write on flat pieces of paper, I build out of flat pieces of wood, I press my cloths flat
and I read time on a flat clock.
Only 3 dimensions exist, Length (flat), width (flat) and breadth (flat) all which exist as one together called Time. I can say this having experienced
the three in one as can everyone else.
It is so bad today, that people know more about space, which they have never gone to, then they do about their own families 3 or more generations past
who without those distant strangers, none of us would be here. People don't even know where they came from, but they are experts on things they have
never done...sounds backwards to me.
Anyway, sorry about the rant. I'm still out on wither this earth is sphere or flat. I lean towards flat, because it is logical and has consequences.
On a globe floating in nothing with no up or down, you need a "special theory of relativity" because nothing is relative.
It's like placing Olympians from the regular Olympics with Olympians from the Special Olympics in competition against each other. The only thing
relative is the word Olympian. No matter how many times the "special" Olympians loose, we will always pander to them because they are "special",
even the Regular Olympians will praise them. Win or loose has no barring, only that they did it, do we praise them. It is the same with the theory so
special to everyone. It is still a theory, meaning it hasn't won, but we still praise the little guy for trying anyway. Who knows, maybe the real
world will forget to tie it's shoelaces before the next race and our "special" little guy will be the big winner.
One last thing, please don't crucify me. I didn't see any pro flat people responding, so I thought I would. I've already seen some of the posts
mocking people who believe otherwise. I am putting myself out there and only ask for your mutual respect. I don't think anyone is "stupid" for
thinking differently then I do, so please...In the words of Ali G...Respect.
