Why don’t flat Earth believers fly to the underside of the Earth, and take pictures to prove their belief?

By Wayne Edward Boyd

I’m going to answer this and go beyond and explain a lot more.

Flat earth believers don’t fly to the underside of the earth and take pictures because, they say, there’s a dome over the whole thing, which is why we have a “wall of ice” to prevent us from getting out and walking over to touch it. It’s a convenient idea to avoid various dilemmas like the one you pose: flying over the edge to look at the other side. Here’s an image that illustrates their belief, showing the Earth, the dome, and the movement of the sun.

Please note, in this image below, the shape of Australia.

Notice, in this image, the sun is over Australia. This is a picture of what flat earth people think Australia looks like:

Let’s compare this image to actual distances. Below you can see Australia is actually 2,511 miles wide. You can drive it. There are roads.

Now in the image below you can see that Australia is almost as tall as it is wide using actual measurable distances.

So flat earth people believe Australia is much wider than tall, which is the only way they can depict Australia on their flat earth map. Below is what Australia actually looks like:

One of a billion problems with flat earth maps is they cannot account for the distortions that they see. This can only be rectified by using the spheroidal earth model.

So there you have it. The real reason they can’t fly underneath to see the flat Earth is that the Earth isn’t flat!

As my final point, I’d like to point out that people have walked and flown across that “wall of ice” and even built a station at the bottom of the world, the South Pole. Since the South Pole is at the bottom of the world, people have to be careful not to fall off and objects have to be secured to the ground, as clearly indicated by the following real picture taken at the South Pole.

Okay, that last bit was a shot at humor. At least like it for that.

How come if we flew to the Moon, nobody ever tried to fly underneath the Earth to see what’s really down there?

Hehehe….. Did someone actually tell you nobody has ever flown around the earth pole to pole?

That’s why you should check your facts before believing conspiracy theories! A good place to start is by going to Snopes.com to do your fact checking.

Not only do some satellites pass “underneath the Earth” to see what’s really down there, so have many airplanes. Furthermore, people live down there, past that “wall of ice” at the South Pole.

Here’s a picture of what it looks like for real.

If aliens abducted you what would you do?

In fact, I was abducted and then taken away from my parents, traveled all the way here and dropped off on Earth.

My “biological parents” adopted me and raised me in New Jersey.

After many years, a UFO landed in my backyard and crushed the doghouse. They came down the ladder and told me I was the prince of a planet named Vorquels. There had been a war and I was dropped off on Earth to protect me. The war is now over and I can return to Vorquels, but since they crushed the dog house and killed my dog, I said no.

I was pissed off.

Wouldn’t you be?

Why has NASA never launched another mission to the moon?

NASA and other space agencies have launched missions to the moon, just not with astronauts. For example, the Japanese space agency once launched a satellite to completely map the surface of the moon in high definition detail.
The main reason (not sure why you don’t know this) we stopped sending men to the moon was that the Vietnam war was getting expensive and politicians decided to cut the space budget because we needed money.
Seems now like NASA is revising it’s scheme to return to the Moon within a few years time. Surely you’ve been following the news.

Why is there a stigma around attempting to discover extraterrestrial life?

There is no stigma. All of science is dedicated to discover extraterrestrial life. We would be completely excited to find even a fossil of a microbe from space because it would be the ultimate affirmation that life can evolve from matter on another world other than Earth. Our best hope at present is to find some kind of life on one of the moons of Jupiter or Saturn, or perhaps some fossils on Mars as of yet undiscovered. We are even spending billions of dollars with the SETI program to listen for radio waves from space!

However, much to the surprise and dismay of scientists, we have yet to discover anything at all.

On Board

Getting on board. I don’t think some people ever get on board the scientific bandwagon.
We have in this world a diverse group of people.
Religions. We have people of all different religions, for example. Many of them accept a non-scientific view of how the Earth was created, or the age of the Earth. I don’t know how they rationalize their viewpoints which contradicts science other than to totally ignore science. Oddly, they all use smartphones connected to the internet and electric light bulbs and flying airplanes and driving cars all created by science.
Flat Earth. There are not many of them but they are a growing number. People who watch YouTube videos and fake science. Many of them are looking for a conspiracy everywhere including World politicians! The ultimate conspiracy theory? They lied to us all along! The Earth is flat. NASA is lying!

Seeing London From Long Island with a Telescope

Someone from the Flat Earth Society has countered a statement I made about Lake Pontchartrain in Louisiana.
I said that because of the curvature of the earth you cannot see New Orleans from the North Shore of the lake. This person has written to me that with a powerful enough telescope you can see downtown New Orleans from the North Shore of the lake. Therefore, he says, the Earth is flat.
I have nothing to say to this poor fool. Apparently if you have a strong enough telescope you can stand on Long Island and see London!

If light doesn't travel through time, how do we measure its velocity? Why does it have a finite velocity?

You don’t get it and it’s not your fault.
When it’s dark outside go outside and turn on your flashlight. How fast does that beam of light go from your flashlight?
Well, it goes at the speed of light.
The speed of light is constant, time is not. We are on a rotating disk that orbits the sun that orbits the galaxy that is moving toward Andromeda and nobody knows how fast we’re going.
Speed is relative in relativity. There is no one “point” that we measure our speed against! We just are where we are.
Einstein didn’t define time or light he defined something he called “spacetime”.
If you had a surfboard going at .9999999999% the speed of light relative to Earth, and turned your flashlight forward it would leave your flashlight at the speed of light for you. Here on Earth, if we had a powerful enough telescope to see you, you would be going very slowly and you turned on your flashlight. It would leave your flashlight at the speed of light for us.
When you got back to Earth you’d be young and we’d be older.
