    Here is an interesting video of two ex-NASA employees that believe in a plane earth.

    Several points are made that struck me as profound.

     

     

    At 35 minutes it is rather lengthy but at least it’s not 4 hours!  ; )

    Anthony, you cannot have vision “to all the land” on a sphere. You can however, on a plane earth.

    Could it not have been said ONCE, “all around the round earth?” Or “from all over the globe”? Or something similar? Why not?

    But 28 times in the scriptures that all represent my view and somehow it is supposed to support your view? Please explain.

  • Dig4truth replied to the topic Flat Earth? in the forum View Points 1 day, 14 hours ago

    Anthony, could it be literal? Can you say? Could I say? What should we base it on? 28 times in the same reference, if it was a metaphor woud it not have been used in another way at least once or maybe twice?

    Anthony, the earth is not “hung” on anything, this is true. But it is placed on a foundation or “pillars”. Make sense?

    The gravitational extents of the sun, earth and moon.

    Nick, am I hearing you right that Yeshua was just a man?

     

  • Dig4truth replied to the topic Flat Earth? in the forum View Points 2 days, 17 hours ago

    Earth’s gravitational pull:

    (E)……………………………… <Extends to here

    Moon’s gravitational pull:

    (M)…… <Extends to here

     

    So now to put it perspective, the moon must be at least as close as the distance at which its gravitational field extends.

     

    (E)……(M)…………………… <earth’s gravitational influence…[Read more]

    Mike, actually my point was that the moon would have to be in that close to the earth to exert any gravational pull. It would obviously be overwhelmed by the gravitational pull of the earth. (Which you can see on the scale as earth’s gravitational pull goes way beyond the moon!)

    Thanks for allowing me to clarify that! Maybe now it can sink in to…[Read more]

    Anthony, do you remember what scriptures I quoted? Here’s one:

    John 10:18 No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father.

    It is important to remember who Yeshua is:

    Heb 7:14-17 For it is evident tha…[Read more]

    Anthony: “Hi Dig God bless, using the tanach wow that’s impressive. Dig this is where the Jewish people went wrong ,, didn’t except the way of Christ I’m not under the old testament law I’m under the law of Christ. So Dig you seemed to take that to heart the scriptures of the day, not night I said day … So Dig do you believe in the inspired…[Read more]

    Mike, oh my, I’m trying to stop laughing!!! Did you prove your point – big time!

    Puppets on a string!

  • Dig4truth replied to the topic Flat Earth? in the forum View Points 2 days, 21 hours ago

    Gene, don’t doubt me, the ship is not going over a curve. Just use the binoculars or small telescope and you can prove it to yourself. If it were simply going over a curve then magnifying it would not bring it back into view.

    As you can see in this 40 second clip:

     

    Gene, gyros aren’t attached to any surface. They…[Read more]

    I 2nd the vote to fix the “going back to the beginning” after posting! Kind of annoying!

    A pillar holds stuff up unless it is in the context of a metaphor speaking of a person. If you said that you had a footstool being held up by pillars it would have to be the literal meaning.

  • Dig4truth replied to the topic Flat Earth? in the forum View Points 2 days, 22 hours ago

    Gene, gyros resist motion put simply. If an airplane is going over a curve the gyro would resist that motion and move backwards to maintain its level.

    Boats going over the horizon can easily be debunked by yourself. Grab any cheap set of binoculars and watch a boat “go over the horizon”. Then look through the binoculars – presto! It’s back in…[Read more]

    Mike, his name was H P Lovecraft, he died in 1938. He was actually from the north east. He was a creepy horror fiction writer.

    Hey Anthony, how many Christians do you think could share the Gospel today by just using the Tanach?

     

    II Tim 3:15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

     

    I would suggest it would be difficult because we have lost most of…[Read more]

    The gravity of the Earth and Moon are shown below.
    Earth: 9.780327 m/s2 or 0.99732 g
    Moon: 1.622 m/s2 or 0.1654 g

    So the Moon has about 1/6th the gravity of the Earth
    So if you weighed 100lb on Earth you would weigh 16.6lb on the Moon.

    Hey T8, why did the moon keep crashing into the earth in that video? Wasn’t it the point to explain why it didn’t?

    This point was made previously but I don’t think it was addressed and certainly not answered.
