Well the "flat earth" discussion took place months ago but people kept
troling it... I ignored it. They kept troling it. So I thought I would
just post one more article to wind it up....

Basically the conclusion was that the earth may be flat but my theory has
bugs still... But at least we can say it may not be rotating... It might
be the universe that's rotating around the earth. Which now seems to have
been verified.

My idea was to show our view of the universe depends on the model we
accept. If someone could come up with a reasonable model that explained
everything we can see and experience and at the same time describe the
earth as flat, then it would be flat, at least in their eyes...

In the same way the scientists couldn't accept that rocks could fall from
the sky we can't accept the earth to be flat... But if someone could just
come up with a viable model... :-)

Thank you. Hare Krishna!
