OK we're really heating up here! So far we have discussed how, amongst other things, by disproving the distance of the sun to the earth; and explaining why things don't just fly off the planet when you accelerate them into the air, will win you multiple Nobel Prizes.
However you may be finding it a bit tricky to undo the laws of physics as we know and experience them, so I have a much easier path for you. Well; relatively easier.
Out Of The Darkness
If you are somebody who believes we live on a flat disc, and you have also been lucky enough to see an eclipse, then you will be struggling to explain what is happening, that is of course, if you bother to think about it.
Apparently the reason for eclipses has been known for centuries, millennia even. It seems those NASA shills, not content with fooling everyone in this time that the world is round, have built a time machine and gone back and planted evidence to deviate from the true nature of our disc world.
Us globers, claim that a solar eclipse, is nothing more magical than the moon passing in front of the sun. You see we happen to live in a time, whereby the distance of the moon and sun from the earth, and their relative sizes, mean that we experience an eclipse if we happen to be standing within the path of totality.
The thing about eclipses, is that you can predict them with 100% accuracy using the 'round earth model', however within a flat earth model, they shouldn't even happen.
In a flat earth model, the sun and the moon are permanently above us, are the same size and never cross orbits.
So there is obviously another explanation for eclipses! We are already assuming that the alternative; the world isn't flat, is completely and utterly ridiculous, and we are not going to give it even the briefest chance to be processed by the thinking parts of our brain.
Instead, we shall wisely react on knee-jerk, supposition, and flawed intuition and set about disproving the glober theory for eclipses, and win a Nobel Prize at the same time!!
Black Gold Of The Sun
On a previous flat earth article of mine, a very wise flat earther told me that I should check out the 'black sun' theory, as this explained solar eclipses.
Unfortunately I knew ahead of time, that the mathematics involved within this theory would be too much for my limited glober intellect, so I didn't 'check it out'.
However, any flat earther wanting to win a Nobel Prize, needs to find this 'black sun', and write a paper explaining why it is only visible during eclipses, and why it appears to have absolutely zero effect on the earth in any way shape or form, and of course, how it got there in the first place.
Then of course you'll have to explain why we don't see any other 'black suns' in our solar system or anywhere in the galaxy or universe for that matter.
If you're smart, you'll prove these things one at a time, spacing them out evenly, so that you win a Nobel Prize for each groundbreaking discovery!
Why So Easy?
At the beginning of the article I said that this was a relatively easy task, and that's because the reason for eclipses were figured out long before NASA, or even computers existed.
So if primitive people can do it without the aid of fancy equipment, then you with combined knowledge of all of human history at your finger tips, should be able to prove how eclipses 'really' happen.
I am being 100% serious when I say, if you do prove such a thing, you will become famous and win a Nobel Prize. If you don't, you can either cling onto the notion the earth is flat, even though an observable natural phenomena would suggest otherwise, or perhaps join the rest of us in our extremely functional delusion.
