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 no axial or orbital movement; and the single fabric global within the universe!

"Samuel Birley Rowbotham, lower than the pseudonym 'Parallax', lectured for 2 many years up and down Britain selling his targeted flat earth idea. This ebook, during which he lays out his international procedure, went via 3 variants, beginning with a sixteen web page pamphlet released in 1849 and a moment variation of 221 pages released in 1865. The 3rd variation of 1881 (which had inflated to 430 pages) was once used because the foundation of this etext.

Rowbotham was once an complete debater who seemingly steamrollered all rivals, and his fans, who integrated many well-educated humans, have been both tenacious. considered one of them, John Hampden, received concerned with a chance with the well-known naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace in regards to the flat earth. An scan which Hampden proposed didn't get to the bottom of the difficulty, and the 2 ended up in court docket in 1876. The pass judgement on governed opposed to Hampton, who all started 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 go with the flow on an unlimited ocean which someway has a layer of fireside beneath it. The lands we all know are surrounded through an unlimited barren region of ice and snow, past the Antarctic ocean, bordered by means of a major round ice-cliff. What we name the North Pole is within the middle of the earth.

The polar projection of the flat earth creates visible discrepancies with recognized geography, rather the farther south you pass. determine fifty four inadvertantly illustrates this challenge. The Zetetic map has a severly squashed South the USA and Africa, and Australia and New Zealand in the course of the Pacific. i feel that by way of 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 used to be 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 may be defined by way of a few unknown item occulting the solar or moon. Zetetic cosmology is 'faith-based', established, that's, on a literal interpretation of chosen Biblical rates. Hell is precisely as marketed, at once lower than us. Heaven isn't a mind set, it's a actual position, someplace above us. He makes use of Ussherian Biblical chronology to mock the idea that stars should be thousands of sunshine years away. He assaults the idea that of a plurality of worlds simply because no different global than this one is pointed out within the Bible.

Rowbotham by no means thoroughly explains his replacement astronomy. If the Copernican thought so effectively explains planetary motions, why discard it, and what could he use as a substitute? what's the solar orbiting round as soon as an afternoon and the way does it paintings like a focus, no longer a 'point source'? If the moon is self-luminous, what creates its stages? If gravity seems to be to paintings right here in the world, why doesn't it observe to the celestial items quite a few hundred miles up?

To make his method paintings he needed to throw out loads of technological know-how, together with the medical approach itself, utilizing as a substitute what he calls a 'Zetetic' procedure. so far as i will be able to see this can be easily a license to hire round reasoning (e.g., the earth is flat, accordingly we will be able to see far-off lighthouses, therefore the earth is flat).

Zetetic Astronomy is a key paintings of flat-earth inspiration, simply as Donnelly's Atlantis, the Antediluvian global remains to be thought of required interpreting with reference to Atlantis. in the event you ever need to debate the flat earth seasoned or con, this ebook is an entire schedule of every aspect that you'll need to argue."
