amy G Posted September 3, 2020 Share Posted September 3, 2020 Hi all, I'd like to share a story. I'm not here to argue with anyone. The petty arguing that has captured this thread is a shame, and it is not necessary. I don't see this on threads on other topics here... hmmm. Hopefully, we are all here in search of truth and that's really all I need to say about that. This is the story of my "flat earth" awakening. Long story short, I met a man a few months back and mostly because of my background, we became close quickly. I majored in mathematics, it became my life and I have worked for over two decades in the aerospace industry. He is a "flat earther." I guess you can see where this is going. It started as simply as if i believed men have actually walked on the moon and when we were leaving he had suggested to me that I look at the thread on the old forum. I came on about a week before it went down, I read it all. What fascinated me most was the fact that there was legitimate discussion. I had never thought of a flat, stationary earth as anything more than a punchline... like most of us I would assume. I understand how people mock the idea, but after careful consideration, still ongoing, I have come to the conclusion that heliocentrism is in no way a settled matter, that proof of either axial or orbital speeds has never been presented, and that we have in fact seen multiple horizons that simply cannot exist on a ball with a radius of 3,963 miles. To me the rest of it becomes obfuscation and distraction. Thanks for reading. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
