Come on!!!!    :angry:

How else is a god supposed to divide the waters from... er… the waters...?  :unsure:

FFS Oaky, do you know nothing?

Guys, I am as lost as a t-shirt, sandals and shorts wearing tourist trying to scale Ben Nevis in February.

In theory exactly the same. The stars would just be circling in the sky.

Hmm, a flat earth would only have one rotation point..,

A spinning globe would have two rotation points?

I think this is the best evidence that we do indeed live on a globe :)

Perhaps the stars could be rotating around two separate foci with the earth stationary.

It's interesting to imagine that we don't know anything about this and come up with plausible theories.

It's can be good to question assumptions.

That wouldn't work. All the water pouring down from that dafty crashing into and breaking the firmament would wash all the stars to earth. You never really thought that through properly, did you?

No problem.
The elephants would still be on the back of Great A'Tuin the World Turtle, who, it has been known, could alter its course to avoid meteorite hits, and even to snap at them with its beak OR send them away with its flippers. 
Flood? Schmudd!
If the earth's flat what's stopping the water falling off the edge?

There's also stronger gravity at the edge of the disc, pulling towards the centre.

Gravity actually weakens the further away from the centre you are

The gravitational constant, g, is actually not a constant at all.

Nothing, of course.  It falls off the edge and with no gravity is turned into mist.

 

The great A’ Thuin is eternally swimming in the most infinitesimal yet liquid of seas.

 As it swims onwards the mists emerge from the shadow of disc world and up towards the Hub, its centre...

and doubtless falls as rain....

...the circle continues.
 

 “Arrangements have been made”.

Buy the Wee Man a pair or waders and a brush and he spend his time brushing the water back in. Full time job and he'd have no time left to post on the forum.

You are talking about a 3D spherical Earth, not a 2D disc shaped Earth. According to the "theory", gravity gets stronger the further you get from the centre of the disc so, in actuality, you can't get to the Antarctica that is at the circumference of the disc.

Get with the program, dude.

OK at this point I am beginning to think these guys may not have a f**king clue what they are talking about.

I'd advise everyone not to believe anything that antrin says, he's obviously just making shit up - or maybe plagiarising Terry Pratchett.

At least antrim's ideas sound more sensible than the flat earthers.

Firmament eh? That was 5 minutes of my life I wont get back.

My wife came in and said "WTF are you looking at?"

And you said "gay porn, honestly, it's gay porn, absolutely nothing to do with a flat earth" and then thought "phew, I think I got away with that"?

Unfortunately I used that excuse before when she caught me watching an S Club 7 "film".
