THREE Unanswerable Objections
to the Flat Earth Theory
Today, after hundreds of years of a uniform understanding of a spherical (ball shaped) earth, there is a renewed interest and even a “feeding frenzy” associated with the Flat Earth Theory. This resurfacing view may be a novelty, but it also may be in-part fueled by a new curiosity in the apocryphal Book of Enoch, which lends itself to a flat earth model. So this article, “Three Unanswerable Objections to the Flat Earth Theory,” will attempt to answer the question at large, “what is the true shape of the earth,” and why does it matter.
Those most likely to be swayed to this line of thinking can be categorized into one of three groups: 1) The HONEST OF HEART, as they seek for truth as for buried treasure; 2) Those who need to be KINGS OF THEIR OWN MOUNTAIN, even if that mountain is mythical; 3) CONSPIRACY THEORISTS, who believe the teaching that the “earth as a sphere” is just another Government CONSPIRACY THEORY of grand proportions. Speaking for myself, I’d like to think that I fall into the category of the “honest of heart,” as I had decided that if this theory proves out I would accept it, whether popular or not.
There are unquestionably many intriguing arguments set forth by the proponents of the Flat Earth Theory. Yet, at the end of the day, the forth-coming weight of evidence supports a spherical shaped earth. Presented below are THREE UNANSWERABLE OBJECTIONS to the Flat Earth Theory that stand as flaming swords at the gate of TRUTH. What makes each of these empirically authoritative, is that each are visible to every eye on earth, and together they exponentially testify daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly to the laws of the universe set forth by our Creator, that the earth is indeed a sphere.
While conspiracies have occurred on a grand scale for thousands of years, after considerable research, I have discovered that a spherical earth is NOT one of them. So what are these three unanswerable objections to the flat earth theory? These are the SUN, the MOON, and STARS, placed in the shamayim (heavens) at the Creator’s word, and the several ways they relate to each other from mankind’s perspective on earth. (Bereshit Genesis 1:14-19)
It appears that the honest of heart Flat Earth Theorist’s (FET) are sincerely trying to defend exactly what they perceive Scripture teaches. Yet, while defending the truth and one’s beliefs is always a worthy cause, in this case, supporting the FET view, is “having the zeal for YAHUAH, but not according to a complete knowledge.”
“For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for YAHUAH (Creator), but not according to knowledge.” Romans 10:2
Flat Earth Model and the Sun
The Flat Earth Theorists (FET) teach that the sun glides along over the earth in a level circle just above the clouds. (Click on images to increase size.)
Some FET, teach that the reason the sun is not visible at night although in a perfect line-of-sight on a flat earth is that in reality the sun is too far away to see and because it behaves as a spotlight. The significant nature of a spotlight is that it shines only in one direction and that its light source cannot be viewed from the side. At night it is so far away from the observer that from a distance the angle prohibits it from being visible. The FET teach that as this giant sun spotlight comes in or out of view, it ends or begins the night where you are as the first rays of light can be seen or disappear. This is how they explain sunrise and sunset.
Illustration of the Spotlight Theory of the Sun
- With this Flat Earth Theory, the sun remains on the same visible plane as the observer, but must move close and far away to produce day and night.
- It is necessary for the sun to move far enough away from the observer so that night can occur. But in doing so it means the size and shape of the sun must correspondingly reduce greatly until it is invisible. Invisibility would be sunset. This view is explained, in that the sun shines as a spotlight in a downward aspect and not from the sides.
- Illustrating this point, the source of the spotlight shining on the dog is not visible from a distance. Instead all we see is the beam and the focus of the beam.
- Each spotlight source becomes more visible, both increasing in length and width, when it is closer in proximity to where you are, as shown in the middle and closest spotlight.
- If you were the mouse in the foreground, you could look directly into the spotlight and to the mouse it would appear perfectly round, but from a distance away it becomes oval.
- Notice that with this theory of the sun behaving as a spotlight, also comes the reality of a visible beam with notable edges that stand out against the dark sky. This contrast would be consistently visible from a distance, when one remains standing in the darkness looking toward the light. It is because of this striking contrast of beams of light against the night sky that has made the search lights so popular for announcing big city events.
If this theory of the sun is true as they claim, the first view of the sun would be a very tiny dot that grows steadily to a slender line of light that would both grow in length and width as at comes closer, with a glaring beam shining downward. As a result, the only time the sun could possible appear round is when it is directly overhead at noon. So it is, that in contrast to this physical and visible spherical phenomena of the sun that all the world can see, the Flat Earth Theory folks must deny their own eyes.
To this day, I have never seen a sun that behaved this way. Have you?
For example, this illustration depicts when the sun is at its farthest distance it would remain dark in the location of the observer. It would take six hours for daylight to reach full brightness as it would correlate directly with proximity of the sun.
However, as the spotlight theory is refuted, the FET folks are still left with trying to explain the sun getting larger as it comes closer and getting smaller as it moves away. Try as one might, it is impossible to fit the realities of the sun into this FET model. For this phenomena NEVER occurs with either the sun or moon.
Twelve Hour Consistent View of the Sun
The first unanswerable objection to the Flat Earth Theory is the appearance of the sun that we all see with our own eyes, day in and day out. With the spherical earth model, when the sun arises it is perfectly round from the moment it begins to peak above the horizon. Within a short span of five minutes the sun becomes fully visible at sunrise and the reverse is true at sunset. As it rises over head at noon it remains not only impeccably round, but maintains both its same relative size and shape as when it was first visible on the horizon.
This continuity of size and shape from sunrise to sunset identifies that the sun’s distance from the observer on earth has remained relatively the same during the entire 24 hour period of earth’s rotation. And profoundly the sunlight intensity remains consistent. As a result, sunrise and sunset can never display a “low rider” sun coming closer and farther away, but rather a consistent far distant sun that appears to circle the spherical earth. So it is that this visible three part reality establishes the earth as a sphere. This simply cannot be explained with a Flat Earth model. (Refer to videos at the end of this article for further support.)
Flat Earth View of the Thirty Lunar Phases
Beginning with the full moon lunar eclipse, some FET claim that the reason the full moon experiences what we call an eclipse is not actually from the spherical earth intercepting the light and casting its shadow upon it. Rather, they teach that a completely different unidentified light-blocking-object remains permanently in the daylight sky, and intercepts the light on the night of the full moon.
However, if this were true, the unidentified object would have to be large enough to cast an all-encompassing shadow on the moon yet remain unseen from earth. Yet, whether this were a flat disc or a spherical ball-shape, it could be observed. It could be seen when close to the sun, or when further from the sun as it contrasts with the dark night sky. Doesn’t this sound very much like what the spherical earth already does in casting a shadow upon the eclipsed full New Moon?
Is the Moon a Light Source?
In order to explain the 30 unique moon phases occurring each lunar month, some FET’s declare that the moon is NOT a marvelous reflector of the sun, after all. Instead, they claim the moon itself is a light source. According to them, each of the moon’s 29 phases emanate from deep within the lunar surface in uniquely timed specific divisions.
Yet, anyone with a home telescope or even binoculars are all able to see with their own eyes the shadows around the edges of the lunar craters. This is especially obvious with the craters nearest the edges where full light meets darkness. This would be visible on any night except the full or conjunction lunar phases.
It is clear to all who observe these that light is not emanating from within the lunar surface, but that the sun’s rays are shining on the moon, casting the shadows around the outer edges of the portion facing the sun.
Spherical Earth View of Thirty Unique Lunar Phases
The second Unanswerable Objection to the Flat Earth Theory speaks to the light and darkness on the moon. The FET folks that teach the moon is its own light source are lacking understanding with regard to the magnificent TIME measuring mechanism placed there by our Creator. For each unique lunar phase corresponds directly to its proximity in the shamayim (heavens) relative to the sun, and from the perspective of the observer on earth. Most principles in the universe are each tied to two or more principles that must each be correct for it to operate correctly. If even one explanation is incorrect, the entire system will fail. A clock is an example of the finely tuned machine in which all parts must work in unison for the desired outcome of keeping perfect time. (Click on images to increase size.)
The lunar phases are actually borne out of the synchronized movement of the moon orbiting the earth each lunar month. One lunation takes 29.5 days, and thus fluctuates from 29 to 30 day monthly intervals. Each lunar phase correlates with precision to its position relative to the sun and the observer upon the earth, in an imaginary triangle. So, the amount of light appearing on the moon by the observer, is always directly related to its location along its monthly circuit of the earth. Therefore the angles of the imaginary triangle between the sun, moon and the observer on earth will change with each passing day. This is not a theory, because it is observable and reproducible every day, month, and year, all the while debunking the Flat Earth Theory.
While the amount of light and darkness on the face of the moon waxes or wanes in a daily progression, the moon, like the sun remains relatively consistent in size. Meaning that every 24 hours we do not see it arise on the eastern horizon as a speck in the distance and grow in size and then reduce again to disappearing on the opposite horizon.
The moon consistently shows only one side of itself to earth, even though the percentages of light and darkness change daily. This cannot be accomplished with the Flat Earth Model for the reason that folks living in Canada would have a different angular view than those living in South America. In this way, the natural characteristics of the moon consistently debunk the Flat Earth Theory.
The moon can be seen in its similitudes by day and by night, but there is only one natural progression of the lunar phases through its orbit and this begins with the full moon, announcing day one. This chart above is oriented facing south so that the E (East) is located in the East. For our Creator oriented His TIME MEASURING mechanism of the sun, moon, and stars to commence in the EAST from mankind’s perspective on earth. This is 180 degree contrast to those world religions who have taken up the dark or crescent moon in the west as the new moon. The lunar phases never occur randomly, but always in perfect sequence from first to last, from Aleph to Tav, commencing and terminating in the full marvelous light.
This graphic also illustrates that the moon maintains a relative consistent distance from earth as well as the sun. Weather the earth spins on its axis in a Heliocentric Universe model, or the sun and stars circuit the earth at a high velocity in a Geocentric Universe, the time continuum remains unchanged.
Note that the lunar phases closer to the center of the circle illustrate the actual visual orientation of that lunar phase from the perspective of the observer on earth. The reason none of this reality can work according to the FET, is that using the full moon that is in its farthest distance from the sun, it would never actually receive light from a sun that behaves as a spotlight shining downward only and entirely disappearing in the opposite direction.
If it were possible to observe the moon from the sun, the moon would ALWAYS appear full. But for the very reason that the moon orbits the earth, each day our perspective of it will be different (imaginary triangle affect). As pictured above, the four quarter divisions give us the general layout of the lunar weeks. Yet, it is still important to count these out to ensure accuracy as the lunar phases have some variance by way apogee and perigee, as it changes from 29 to 30 day months.
The very term “month” is derived from the word moon. The astro-luni-solar year is divided by 12 or 13 lunar months. These 13 month years, known as embolismic years, occur once every two or three years for a total of 7 times in 19 years, when the astro-luni-solar years are once again synchronized with the solar year. (Refer to videos at the end of this article for further support.)
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse
A lunar eclipse is a visible sky manifestation that all may behold, both young and old alike. Continuously, and without interruption, the sun shines on this spherical shaped earth, which acts like an umbrella, casting a round shadow into space. In a lunar eclipse the full moon passes through this round shadow made by the earth a couple of times a year, either in a partial eclipse (penumbra) or a total eclipse (umbra). The visual effect is of the full moon passing from one edge of the very large round shadow, through the middle as it is completely engulfed in the shadow, and then passing out of the other side. Further, this event is visible only between the hours of sunset and sunrise, when the moon and the sun are in opposition to each other and the earth comes directly between them.
A lunar eclipse can NEVER occur intermittently throughout the lunar month during any other lunar phases, but only on the night of the full moon when it is on the opposite side of the earth from the sun. For those experiencing daylight when an eclipse occurs, they are not able to witness the event as the moon is only on the dark side of the earth unless it occurs at precisely sunrise, which it does on occasion.
Using this example above of the flat earth, the FET simply cannot give an adequate or realistic explanation as to what mammoth obstruction consistently blocks the light of the sun from reaching the full moon during a lunar eclipse, one or more times a year. As a result, I am not able to accept a theory as an eternal truth of the Creator that is so visibly apparent to every eye that observes a full moon lunar eclipse once or twice a year.

The Flat Earth Theory Teaches Star Trails Only Occur at the North Pole
It has been declared by the Flat Earth Theorists that long exposure/time-lapse photography can only produce star trails at the North Pole nearest the North Star Polaris. This is when we see a distinct pattern of lines of star light encircling the North Star. They claim that this same phenomena does NOT occur at the South Pole, but rather all the stars simply spread out into the great expanse of the universe at the Antarctic. So, if it can be illustrated using long exposure/time-lapse photography of the South Pole that indeed the star trails circle a single point, the entire FET would fall like a house of cards, for it would establish the earth as a sphere with two opposing poles.
An additional point FET’s make is that navigators on the high seas have for thousands of years oriented to the North Star only.
The Southern Stars are the Flat Earth Theorists Greatest Challenge
As the third unanswerable objection to the Flat Earth Theory, there remains extraordinary evidence regarding the star trails of the South Pole near the Southern Cross, as pictured below. This photo was shot from New Zealand by an amateur photographer and not NASA or another government agency.
Also, there is much documentation for navigating in the northern and southern oceans. When navigating in the northern hemisphere the North Star Polaris continues to be the central point of orientation, but when navigating in the southern hemisphere it is the Southern Cross that is used to pinpoint the true South Pole.
Below are three very short MUST WATCH videos. The first video will illustrate the same circular star trails of the South Pole as observed from three southern continent perspectives: South America, South Africa, and Australia. It is this reality of the circling star trails at the South Pole that makes the Flat Earth Theory an utter impossibility. This is because of the mere fact that the stars circling at the southern pole are never visible to those living in the northern hemisphere and the north pole circling stars are never visible to those in the southern hemisphere no matter how large a telescope one has. For if the earth were flat, the northern pole star, Polaris would always be visible to Australia, South Africa and South America. GAME OVER!

So the truth remains that the stars from earth’s perspective encircle both the North and the South Poles equally from east to west. Each night as illustrated in the long exposure/time-lapse photography from three separate continents, these starry witnesses arise in the east and make their way up and over, and go down in the west. This occurs in a circular motion that tightens as it gets closer to each of the two pole centers. This testimony of the stars is irrefutable evidence that indeed the earth is a ball shaped sphere. (Refer to videos at the end of this article for further support.)
The Magnification Powers of the Telescope
The main purpose of the telescope is to make far distant objects visible to the human observer. The telescope achieves its optimum ability with a two part process: 1) to collect a maximum amount of light; 2) and its power of magnification. Yet, no matter how many galaxies it detects many light years into the cosmos, if it is based in the Southern Hemisphere it will never get a glimpse of Polaris or the Little Dipper.
Here is a list of all the major observatories currently in the Southern Hemisphere. Although they represent four continents, there is one factor they all hold in common. Yes, you guessed it. None of these powerful telescopes are able to observe the North Star, Polaris or any of the stars that circle in the vicinity of the North Pole.
This chart depicts the primary telescopes of earth and the larger ones that are currently under construction. Although the largest one from Chili is greater in size than a Basketball court, it will never observe Polaris, the North Star. Why? Because mere distance is not the issue. Rather, this is a simply problem of line of sight on a spherical shaped earth.
An interesting note is that if you live at the equator such as Ecuador, it is possible to view both Polaris at the North Pole and the Southern Cross pointing to true south within a single night. From this equatorial vantage point all the 88 starry constellations can be observed, over the course of seven months as they roll up and over from east to west like a rolling pin in the night sky, all the while connecting the two poles with an invisible line through the center of the spherical earth.
This image comes from the free Stellarium program. It illustrates the view mentioned above from the Equator on 04/24/2016. A similar view can be seen from March through September. The lighter blue section in the middle represents the area of the earth with four points of the compass.
Line of Sight Principle
In this flat earth illustration (A, and B) represent those that can observe the North Star. The (C) represents those who are NEVER able to observe the North Star at the North Pole. The (B) sits at the equator and represents those who can observe both the North Star and the Southern Cross within a single night at the lowest points on each horizon.
If the earth were actually flat, (A, B, and C) would all be able to observe Polaris, the North Star. But (C) is NEVER able. However, (C) has a great view of the Southern Cross, which (A, and B) FET must dismiss as none existent.
For this flat earth model to work it is necessary that the North Star marking the North Pole define the epi-center of the FET disc. Yet, the position of (B), which sits squarely on the equator destroys this theory. From (B’s) vantage point, two nearly identical poles are observed simultaneously in opposite directions. Add to this the star trails and the visible phenomenon is complete. This identifies that the two poles are not one and the same, but entirely opposites with stars circling in the same direction.
The spherical earth image illustrates the straight line of sight across the curvature of the earth. The (A) has a direct line of sight to Polaris, the North Star. The (B) has a direct line of sight to both the North Star and the Southern Cross within a single night. The (C) is unable to achieve a direct line of sight to the North Star, missing it completely, but does have a direct line of sight to the Southern Cross. (Click on image to enlarge it.)
For the FET to be true, all the stars currently viewed by those living in the Southern Hemisphere must be written off as mere fiction, denying their existence, including the Southern Cross that has been utilized for thousands of years of ocean navigation.
Of a truth the Flat Earth Theory was born in the Northern Hemisphere and of necessity requires that the Southern Hemisphere see the same stars they see in the north, yet this can never occur.
At the end of the day, this observable North and South Pole synchronized phenomenon as observed by (B) at the equator, completely destroys the FET model, revealing that there truly is a “DOWN UNDER,” and not merely flat land extending out from a single center pole.
I have a hunch there are not many folks from the southern hemisphere who support the Flat Earth Theory.
Astrolabium Orrery Time
Let me illustrate with this Astrolabium 2000 Tellurium Orrery that the earth is a sphere and that true TIME is measurable from the animate mechanism of the sun, moon, and stars as set forth at Creation. The concept of the clock was borne out of the movements of these shamayim (heavenly) spherical bodies, and not the other way around. For the shamayim was created in the beginning of time according to the Genesis account. (Click on image to enlarge it.)
Note that this four-part illustration DOES NOT represent a flat earth. Rather, with this heliocentric model, the spherical earth is placed on a circuit around the sun, while the moon makes its way around the earth each lunar month. The flat brass platform in which these are fastened represent the twelve yearly divisions or the wheel of the starry constellations on the ecliptic circle, referred to in Scripture as the Mazzaroth. To achieve a geocentric universe model with this instrument, all one has to do is pick up this mechanical clock orrery by the earth globe, and the entire mechanism will continue to function giving the same time, yet with the sun and the stars now circling the earth along with the moon.
Just like the sun, moon, and stars above, this astrolabium clock does more than simply count off hours, minutes, months, and dates. Crowning this extraordinary precision instrument is a miniature globe of the earth that rotates and revolves around a solid brass sun. Attached to the earth’s gear assembly is the moon, which maintains one synchronous rotation around the earth each lunar month. Most exciting of all, this clock illustrates the earth orbiting the sun in an astro-luni-solar year with 12-13 full moon lunar month designations as seen marked with the black pointer. Together, this clock/calendar clarifies how time is beaconed in the shamayim (heavens) since the time of creation.
Unlike, this replica, the moon always presents the same face to the earth based observers, even when its face encounters varying degrees of light from the direction of the sun.
I believe the FET view is completely aimed at undermining mankind’s knowledge of the perfect and distinct clock/calendar displayed in the shamayim (heavens) as the very signature of our Creator YAHUAH Elohim/Alahim.
They Will Not Endure Sound Doctrine
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desire, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.” 2 Timothy 4:3-4
“It is He that sits upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretched out the shamayim (heavens) as a curtain, and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in.” YeshaYAHU (Isaiah) 40:22
“And to whom would you liken El (God)? And what likeness would you compare to Him? The workman molds a graven image, and the goldsmith overspreads it with gold, and the silversmith casts silver chains.” YeshaYAHU (Isaiah) 40:18-19
Did you know? Have you not heard? Has it not been declared to you from the beginning? Have you not understood since the foundations (#4146 – masadot מוסדות ) of the earth? YeshaYAHU (Isaiah) 40:21
This verse supports equally the spherical earth view as well as the flat earth theory. Simply nothing in the concept of a circle means it is two dimensional or three dimensional, but only that it is round. But many Flat Earther’s also believe the earth is a flat square, because they believe that is what is meant by the “four corners of the earth,” rather than the four points of the compass. The term “four corners of the earth” is used twice in Greek (Revelation 7:1 and 20:8) and only one time in Hebrew (Isaiah 11:12). The Hebrew definition for “corners” (Strong’s #3671- edge, extremity, a wing, a flap, a quarter, a pinnacle, end, feather, overspreading, skirt, uttermost part). In Greek (#1137 it means – angle, corner, or quarter). It simply cannot be determined to mean four literal corners of a square flat earth, but four divisions or quarters.
“It is He that sits upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretched out the shamayim (heavens) as a curtain, and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in.” YeshaYAHU (Isaiah) 40:22
Then in verse 26 mankind is called to look up to the stars of the shamayim, for the “host” refers to the stars and their numbered order along the Mazzeroth wheel of starry constellations.
“Lift up your eyes on high and see. Who has created these? He who is bringing out their host [of stars] by number, He calls them all by name, by the greatness of His might and the strength of His power, not one is missing.” YeshaYAHU (Isaiah) 40:26
“He appoints the number of the stars, He gives names to all of them.” Tehilim (Psalms) 147:4
In Job and in Psalms 19 the “circle” is most definitely referring to the Mazzeroth, the wheel of the stars. And this does not mean either the shamayim (heavens) or earth are flat, but only that it is circular or revolves in a circular aspect.
“. . . He walks above the circle of shamayim (heavens).” Yobe (Job) 22:14
The shamayim (heavens filled with stars) accurately record the majesty of Alahim (God) and the handiwork of His power from the conspicuous expanse of the firmament. Day unto day gushes forth promises and night unto night demonstrates knowledge. Without promises and without provision their voice shall not be heard, understood, nor obeyed. Through all the earth proceeds forward their measuring line, and in the end of the world their topic will be that the EAST was fixed and ordained for Yahuah’s tabernacle. And Himself like a bridegroom shall proceed forth from His canopied chamber. He shall rejoice as a mighty warrior to hasten along the well-worn pathway [of the sun, moon, and stars]. From the border of the shamayim His going forth is in the EAST, and His revolution — a circuit of time in space, because of the end, and nothing shall be hidden from His wrath! Tehilim (Psalms) 19:1-6 Study Link
From each of these illustrations with regard to the SUN, MOON, and the STARS there is conclusive evidence that the Flat Earth Theory (FET) cannot explain the consistent spherical realities that we observe and experience daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly from the many perspectives from the North to the South Poles. Is this any surprise? For these lights declare in three part harmony the truth about our planet, the truth about the shamayim (heavens), the truth about TIME, but also the truth and majesty of their/our Creator. We have no need to be deceived.
- There are three groups of people who may consider the Flat Earth Theory.
– The HONEST OF HEART, who seek for truth, defending their view of Scripture.
– Those who would be KINGS of their own mountain, whether mythical or not.
– CONSPIRACY THEORISTS, who see a conspiracy in all things.
- Both the SUN and MOON remain relatively the same size, shape and distance the entire time they are observable from east to west. This disproves the sun as a spotlight that moves in a low and level circuit above a flat earth, coming into proximity and then moving far away into obscurity.
- A LUNAR ECLIPSE consistently occurs when a spherical earth comes between the sun and the moon. The FET cannot explain this without coming up with an alternate spherical body (planet) that systematically comes between the sun and the moon, but only on the nights the moon is full.
- The Moon is a reflector of light in all its phases, which identifies its position on its circuit around the spherical earth. The moon is entirely dependent upon the sun for its light. The deep shadows found in the lunar craters illustrates that its light comes from the sun. The moon as its own light source simply undermines the Creator’s purpose for the moon to work in three part harmony with the sun and stars. The FET causes a further disengagement of the moon from the Creator’s GREAT TIMEPIECE that beacons the four seasons of the year, each New Year in spring, each New Moon, the count of weeks and the demarcation of each day.
- Long exposure/time-lapse photography from Australia, South America, and South Africa present STAR TRAILS in the exact same harmonious movement circling east to west at the South Pole, just as is recognized at the North Pole. Those living at the equator can on a clear night view both spectacles simultaneously. This phenomena disproves the FET for the shear fact that there is a DOWN UNDER that is not able to ever see the UP OVER North Star.
- The most powerful telescopes in the Southern Hemisphere cannot overcome the curvature of the earth to observe the North Star, for the simple reason it is not in their line of sight.
- The Creator’s astro-luni-solar TIME, born in the three-part orchestrated shamayim (heavens), is utterly undermined by this spurious teaching of the Flat Earth. For it discounts the truth revealed through the observable mechanics of TIME, the sun, moon, and stars interplay for beacons of all of our Creator’s kadosh (set-apart) – New Moon’s, seventh-day Sabbaths, and annual Feast Days.
- Scripture does not appear to identify in a single word the exact shape of the earth. For in every example, the Hebrew and Greek definitions reveal a variety of meanings, making it impossible to take a hard stance based solely upon Scripture, but the best example is found in Tehilim (Psalms) 19:1-6 Study Link.
Whether the Flat Earth Theory is a novelty or not, or whether the Creator is using this to bring truth seekers along a path to discover His true calendar in the shamayim with its qadosh lunar Sabbaths and annual Feast Days, this is no laughing matter. Folks jumping on this Flat Earth track are dead serious. Many good hearted folks are being deceived by this at a time when the focus should be on the real conspiracy and egregious cover-ups affecting our understanding of our Creator and His time-centric plan to restore mankind back to Himself through the united effort with His Son.
At the end of the day, the evidence reveals that a conspiracy does exist, but it is primarily the fraudulent Roman Gregorian time-measuring model, which was introduced by Emperor Constantine at the Council of Nicaea in A.D. 325, and sold to ALL THE WORLD. It is this view that is wholly out of sync with the Creator’s Calendar of Scripture that counts Sabbaths and Feast Days from each New Moon. However, the Flat Earth Theory seems to be detour of sorts, keeping folks from discovering and being restored to the Creator’s true time-measuring model.
It is the emphatic belief of this website that TIME has been taken hostage, and the modern calendar method of measuring it, is the grandest conspiracy ever conceived and perpetrated upon mankind as it relates to our Creator and His Word and the plan of salvation. This may be on a par with the replacement in Scripture of all the kadosh names of our Eternal Father and Son, YAHUAH and YAHUSHA, with the terms “Lord God” and “Jesus Christ.” And although the time-measuring change is first attributed to Nimrod (circa 2,300 B.C.) as the creator of the sun cult, but more recently to the Roman Emperor Constantine, the title should really go to HASATAN. Their influence has been far reaching, and ultimately the Yahudahim (Jews) and their astro-lunar-solar time-measuring, succumbed to the Roman solar calendar with weeks entirely divorced from the lunar phases.
For Satan’s grand illusions of becoming like the Eternal Father (YeshaYAHU Isaiah 14:12-15), gave rise to his schemes of changing earth’s method of measuring time. He has accomplished this by removing the moon from Roman time-measuring and then changing astro-lunar-solar time to luni-solar time for the Jews (a difference of 180 degrees), and solar time for all who adhere to the Roman Gregorian calendar. This was proactively designed to cause earthlings to be out of sync with the worship rhythms of their Creator, Yahuah Elohim, and instead, in-step with the great deceiver that he might receive our time-centric worship.
Might it be that the Flat Earth Theory and its assorted methods for redefining the universe, is the next generation of counterfeits masterminded from the pit of hell to redirect the mind from the truth regarding the Creator’s Calendar in the shamayim?

Folks its time to wake up, we have been given two eyes to see, and a mind to distinguish truth from error. It is possible to be sincere, yet sincerely wrong. Don’t die trying to defend this FET mythical mountain. We must put on our discernment spectacles of Yahuah and pray for continued truth and for His continued compassion upon us all. It is not a sin to study the Flat Earth theory while seeking truth on the matter. However, accepting it as truth in face of just these Three Unanswerable Objections is a step toward “loving and believing a lie,” when the physical, observable and repeatable evidence says otherwise. Scripture tells us that those who stubbornly cling to a lie in the face of the evidence will not have an eternal home.

The Creator of our earth, sun, moon, and stars designed them in such a way that we can learn how His magnificent time-piece in the shamayim (heavens) works by ascertaining truth by our own personal experience as led by the Ruach (power and presence of Yahuah).

Perfect spheres cannot occur on their own, making our spherical earth majestic evidence of the Divine Omnipotent Creator’s handiwork, and not mere happen-chance.
