That's how mirages are formed - you can literally see the distant object because the tortilla-Earth has folded up. Obviously.Like this? Baffling.
I see it now. Thanks - makes perfect sense.That's how mirages are formed - you can literally see the distant object because the tortilla-Earth has folded up. Obviously.
Incidentally, the Glasgow Skeptics will be hosting a talk in November by Michael Marshall of the Good Thinking Society re : Flat Earthers.
Is common sense something we acquire, or is it part of our birthgift?Banners and graffiti were left by the pond in Crystal Palace Park on Sunday (September 2) morning.
“Earth is not a magical spinning ball with bendy water. Gravity has never been proven.”
(Nobody drop bricks on their toes to prove gravity, no matter how tempting)
I'll pass on the Uno but I'm rather fond of the old 128 Abarth!Every time I see this thread pop up on the forum overview I read it as
"Tales of a Fiat Earth".
And then picture some kind of nightmare vision of a world ruled over by rusty old Fiat Unos and aggressive 70s Fiat 128s...
If you look really really closely at the top of the mountain at the front edge, the one with the flattish top, you can see Kin Arad smirking at you.Is common sense something we acquire, or is it part of our birthgift?
Either way - observing parts of humanity at their best convinces me that it is in short supply.
Why would the moon be round, the sun be round, our closest neighbourhood planets be round - our natural cycles be cyclical...but our planet take on the dimensions of a plate - which, in its self, has a round aspect to it.
Why not a square plate shape? Didn't they think that far?
I wish I could give this comment more than one like. IMO Flatal Warming is comedy gold!The Flat Earth Society believes in Flatal Warming.
Amusing post. I like the reference to the Mountains of Madness — particularly apposite as flat Earthers clearly don't have a Cthlue about what's really going on.One of the things I find most amusing about the Flat Earthers is their complete inability to agree on which Flat Earth they believe in. This crucial failure in doctrine will not stand them well going forwards.
For example, one of the models suggests that the world is composed in a Mercator Projection, where the Arctic is the center of the world and the Antarctic is the edge. The Antarctic (you see) has mountains (The obvious name for which are the "Mountains of Madness"), and they allegedly form a ring that keeps the water from running out.
Then there are the people who believe the Sky has a dome, as is implied in the Bible. Of course Psalm 104:5 says the Earth will never be moved, so how could that be wrong?
Then there are the people who regard Earth and its oceans as being part of one infinite continuum of land and sea, some of whom accept the Mountains of Madness and some who don't.
