I still don't get this concept of a flat earth well. Let's look at it this way: you have a flat earth sorrounded by thick high walls of ice,right? Now,if you were to go over it with an aircraft,you would definitely see the end of it,not so? Or does it extend infinitely? Or it is not accessible because of the countries guarding it?

If you try to FLY out of the earth space, your plane will BURN to smithereens. Your systems will go haywire, and you would be forced to change flight direction. Space travel by NASA is faked, according to the Flat Earth theory, because there is a point where you can take up a shuttle and as it starts to leave the earth's atmosphere, a BLAZING ATMOSPHERIC HEAT forces the craft to level off before turning back down to land in some remote location, fooling people that a shuttle has actually left the earth.

The Flat Earth model claims there is a sort of heated metal 'dome' overhanging the earth, similar to what is described in Genesis and by many other religious traditions. The 'dome' is recognised by scientists, and is known as the Van Allen Belt. It is what prevents man from leaving the immediate earth space.

Flat Earthers say that NO human or craft has ever left earth space, which is just a few thousand miles around the earth, due to being turned back by the Van Allen Belt. This belt bears uncanny resemblance to the 'firmament' spoken of in Genesis creation accounts.

All NASA displays of space travel are ...faked. In fact, they say, outer space actually... may not exist. As in, 'the universe' is really just the flat Earth, a small sun and moon rotating it to provide seasons, some stars, and further up is.... the Creator and Heaven (the world of souls). Finish.

It is a radical view, but there it is. wink

THE MOON IS NOT A SOLID GLOBE.

IT IS A LARGELY TRANSPARENT DISC.


Which is why you can see the blue sky right through it here!

''Not only is the Moon clearly self-luminescent, shining its own unique light, but it is also largely transparent. When the waxing or waning Moon is visible during the day it is possible to see the blue sky right through the Moon. And on a clear night, during a waxing or waning cycle, it is even possible to occasionally see stars and “planets” directly through the surface of the Moon! The Royal Astronomical Society has on record many such occurrences throughout history which all defy the heliocentric model.''

''If Earth were really a ball, there would be no reason to use rockets for flying into “outer-space” anyway because simply flying an airplane straight at any altitude for long enough should and would send you off into outer-space. To prevent their airplanes from flying tangent to the ball-Earth, pilots would have to constantly course-correct downwards, or else within just a few hours the average commercial airliner traveling 500mph would find themselves lost in “outer-space.” The fact that this never happens, artificial horizons remain level at pilot’s desired altitudes and do NOT require constant downwards adjustments, proves the Earth is not a ball.''

It's called airplane. Air plane cannot not work in space it can only work where there's air.

Spaceships use newton's third law of motion. That's why they can work in any medium

Here's a quote from research:

''In the Flat-Earth model, the South Pole does not exist at all and Antarctica is instead a gigantic ice-wall extending the circumference of Earth holding in the oceans like a giant bowl, or a “world cup.” As strange as this concept may sound at first, it is a fact that if you set a bearing due South from anywhere on Earth, inevitably at or before 78 degrees Southern latitude, you will find yourself face-to-face with an enormous ice-wall towering 100-200 feet in the air extending to the East and West the entire circumference of the world!''

http://www.atlanteanconspiracy.com/2015/06/south-pole-does-not-exist.html


“It has been demonstrated that the earth is a plane, the surface-centre of which is immediately underneath the star called ‘Polaris,’ and the extremities of which are bounded by a vast region of ice and water and irregular masses of land. The whole terminates in fog and darkness, where snow and driving hail, piercing sleet and boisterous winds, howling storms, madly-mounting waves, and clashing icebergs are almost constant.”

-Dr. Samuel Rowbotham, “Zetetic Astronomy, Earth Not a Globe!”



These are countries in relative proximity to the edge, led by the most powerful nations like the US, Russia, and China.



One reason that seems to be gaining ground is that the 'universe' could be much smaller than we imagine, comprising merely Earth, the sun, moon, stars, and 'Heaven' above in which God dwells. The whole NASA, planets, galaxies, solar systems stuff, with its big bang theories that explain Earth's random appearance appears to be a scam designed to divert us from the ....truth.

What truth

Your explanation doesn't tell us why the planes fly flat with no curvature.

How do you explain the No Straight Flights From Cape Town to Sidney mystery?

@OP stop reading confusionists hypothesis. Yes, hypothesis is all it is. The earth is not flat. Science and religion has proved that over and over again.

I would not want to bring out basic geography facts here, you know it all. And if you don't, just google "proofs of earth sphericity".

The radius of the earth is something above 6400km if I remember that figure correctly. That means the circumference of the earth is 2 * π * 6400. Or will you tell me there is nothing like π too?

What I'm saying that the height/distance (slope) ratio is too gentle to be significant for most journeys made by a commercial plane? And all normal measuring instruments will read it as near level. Dig deeper and learn more.

Forget all those cock and bull stories making round on the www. The earth is near spherical, gravity (9.8m/s) is a FACT. if not, everything that has ever need designed would have failed. Ships, cars, houses, Towers etc.

Science and mathematics revolve around the basic Newtonian law, F = mass * acceleration due to gravity.

Everything that exists move. The earth, the sun, the stars, the moon, the winds, etc. Science never opposes religion, it supports it.

What's your question?

Your post is filled with inaccuracies and wild, unproven, hand-me-down assertions. A plane's speed is such that it WILL fly out of the earth atmosphere and into 'outer space' on a four hour flight if the earth were spherical, UNLESS it constantly dipped its nose downwards to curve round the 'globe'. No plane ever does that because the earth is flat.


See earlier quote:
''If we were living on a spinning globe, airplanes would constantly have to dip their noses down every few minutes to compensate for the curvature of the earth (with a circumference of 25,000 miles the earth would be constantly curving at the speed of an airplane). In reality however, they never do this! They learn how to fly based on a level flat plane.''

Also, can you explain to us why there are no direct flights between Cape town and Sidney? See start of thread for details in case you missed it.

I don't have to watch any dumb video. It doesn't just make any sense to say the earth is flat and gravity doesn't exist and over 40 countries are guarding the ice that protect the ocean from falling down the edges of the earth and also hide the secrets from being revealed to people.

This is why commercial planes don't fly across Antarctica.


The reason that it's too dangerous because of radiation, this happens at the north pole too. arauras happen near the poles as a result of Earth's magnetic field interacting with alpha particles from the sun, and those interactions can cause radiation. You can fly over safely, but flying there regularly can be hazardous to your health and that's why commercial airplanes don't go there.

So you ignored the fact I told you about gravity and choose to still be deluded by unfounded hypothesis in the internet. Seems you already agree with me on gravity, lemme leave that aside.

The circumference of the earth (yes the earth is spherical!) is about 40200km. Let me shoot you down.

1. I know the earth has a circumference of 40,200.
2. I know the arc distance (as crow flies) between Nigeria and United States is about 11,000km.

Using the laws of gravity, I measure the mass(a function of weight) of a plane and use it to get the speed. Say the average speed of a commercial plane is 1000km/hr. I can confidently say a plane leaving Nigeria will arrive US in the next eleven hours excluding stopping times. This is a fact.

We calculate times, distances taking into cognizance the curvature of the earth and pilots, airport official and engineers like me have NEVER been wrong. All these will be very incorrect using a flat imaginative earth.

And yes, planes do not fly straight lines over VERY LONG distances, but they do at short distances. Planes bank, and change direction. Just as you cannot notice that the earth is curved at zero or small altitudes, same way you cannot notice/measure the curve of a plane because it is seemingly negligible considering the distance wrt to height. I wish you can understand.

You should bring solid questions, and not hearsay.
