Zetetic Astronomy: Earth Not A Globe (2nd Edition)

By Samuel Birley Rowbotham, George Davey

Earth now not A Globe!
An experimental inquiry into the genuine determine of the earth: Proving it a aircraft, with out axial or orbital movement; and the single fabric international within the universe!

"Samuel Birley Rowbotham, less than the pseudonym 'Parallax', lectured for 2 many years up and down Britain selling his detailed flat earth thought. This e-book, within which he lays out his international process, went via 3 variants, beginning with a sixteen web page pamphlet released in 1849 and a moment version of 221 pages released in 1865. The 3rd variation of 1881 (which had inflated to 430 pages) used to be used because the foundation of this etext.

Rowbotham used to be an finished debater who apparently steamrollered all competitors, and his fans, who incorporated many well-educated humans, have been both tenacious. one in every of them, John Hampden, obtained keen on of venture with the well-known naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace concerning the flat earth. An test which Hampden proposed didn't get to the bottom of the difficulty, and the 2 ended up in courtroom in 1876. The pass judgement on governed opposed to Hampton, who begun a protracted crusade of felony harassment of Wallace. Rowbotham tricks on the incident during this book.

Rowbotham believed that the earth is flat. The contients waft on an enormous ocean which one way or the other has a layer of fireside beneath it. The lands we all know are surrounded via an unlimited barren region of ice and snow, past the Antarctic ocean, bordered through an important round ice-cliff. What we name the North Pole is within the heart of the earth.

The polar projection of the flat earth creates seen discrepancies with identified geography, rather the farther south you pass. determine fifty four inadvertantly illustrates this challenge. The Zetetic map has a severly squashed South the US and Africa, and Australia and New Zealand in the midst of the Pacific. i believe that through the nineteenth century humans might have spotted if Australia and Africa have been hundreds of thousands of miles extra aside than anticipated, not to mention if Africa was once wider than it used to be long!

The Zetetic solar, moon, planets and stars are all just a couple of hundred miles above the skin of the earth. The sunlight orbits the north pole as soon as an afternoon at a relentless altitude. The moon is either self-illuminated and semi-transparent. Eclipses should be defined via a few unknown item occulting the solar or moon. Zetetic cosmology is 'faith-based', established, that's, on a literal interpretation of chosen Biblical costs. Hell is precisely as marketed, at once lower than us. Heaven isn't really a frame of mind, it's a actual position, someplace above us. He makes use of Ussherian Biblical chronology to mock the concept stars might be thousands of sunshine years away. He assaults the idea that of a plurality of worlds simply because no different international than this one is pointed out within the Bible.

Rowbotham by no means properly explains his substitute astronomy. If the Copernican conception so accurately explains planetary motions, why discard it, and what may he use as an alternative? what's the sunlight orbiting round as soon as an afternoon and the way does it paintings like a focus, now not a 'point source'? If the moon is self-luminous, what creates its stages? If gravity seems to be to paintings the following on the earth, why doesn't it observe to the celestial gadgets quite a few hundred miles up?

To make his procedure paintings he needed to throw out loads of technological know-how, together with the clinical strategy itself, utilizing as a substitute what he calls a 'Zetetic' process. so far as i will be able to see this is often easily a license to hire round reasoning (e.g., the earth is flat, therefore we will see far away lighthouses, for that reason the earth is flat).

Zetetic Astronomy is a key paintings of flat-earth inspiration, simply as Donnelly's Atlantis, the Antediluvian global continues to be thought of required analyzing almost about Atlantis. if you happen to ever need to debate the flat earth seasoned or con, this e-book is a whole time table of every aspect that you'll need to argue."
