I really should not, but here it goes:
Brent, you seem to value the conventional ways given by the model used
to formulate physical sciences and Euclidian geometry etc. over mental
ways or ideational arguments.
All models are mental and ideational. That's why they are models. Can you explain what you mean
by "conventional" and "unconventional"?
(There may be considerations to judge mixed marriages for good
argumentation without waiting for physically observable damages.)
Imagine (since Einstein introduced us to spacetime-curvatures already)
that the Earth IS flat with the format-proviso that as you approach the
rim it changes your "straight-line" progressing: the closer you get the
more it changes (something like the big mass ujpon spacetime - mutatis
mutandis). So as you close in to the rim, instead of falling off, you
curved backwards and arrive (on a different route) at the point of
starting. (No proper geometry have I devised for that so far),
It would seem, that the Earth is spherical and yuou circumnavigatged it.
And this would be different from a spherical Earth how?
Like Paul Churchland's tribe who formulated heat as a fluid changing
colors according to its concentration (in ho book "Consciousness").and
not some ridi\culous vibrations as some human physicists believe.
What's your point?...that any observation can be explained in more than one way and since
we cannot apprehend "reality itself" we must remain agnostic and indifferent
between a flat and spherical Earth?
For the innocent bystander: I do not believe this Flat Earth theory.
So why don't you believe it?
