Much may be gathered, indirectly, from the arguments in these pages, as to the real nature of the Earth on which we live and of the heavenly bodies which were created for us. The reader is requested to be patient in this matter and not expect a whole flood of light to burst in upon him at once, through the dense clouds of opposition and prejudice which hang all around. Old ideas have to be gotten rid of, by some people, before they can entertain the new; and this will especially be the case in the matter of the Sun, about which we are taught, by Mr. Proctor, as follows: "The globe of the Sun is so much larger than that of the Earth that no less than 1,250,000 globes as large as the Earth would be wanted to make up together a globe as large as the Sun." Whereas, we know that, as it is demonstrated that the Sun moves round over the Earth, its size is proportionately less. We can then easily understand that Day and Night, and the Seasons are brought about by his daily circuits round in a course concentric with the North, diminishing in their extent to the end of June, and increasing until the end of December, the equatorial region being the area covered by the Sun's mean motion. If, then, these pages serve but to arouse the spirit of enquiry, the author will be satisfied. The right hand of fellowship in this good work is extended, in turn, to Mr. J. Lindgren, 90 South First Street, Brooklyn, E. D., N. Y., Mr. M. C. Flanders, lecturer, Kendall, Orleans County, N. Y., and to Mr. John Hampden, editor of "Parallax" (a new journal), Cosmos House, Balham, Surrey, England.

William Carpenter, is an English author, born in 1830 (England) and died in 1896 (United States). In 1879, Carpenter immigrated to the United States. He moved from England to Baltimore, where he continued his work as a printer. After arriving in Baltimore, USA, he also taught shorthand courses. Carpenter was a fierce supporter of the flat Earth theory, he provided a plea for the flat earth movement. He has been a passionate advocate of the flat earth theory, which holds that the earth is not a globe, but a flat square that rotates on a central axis with the sun stationary on the center. In 1864, under the name of Common Sense, in England, he published Theoretical Astronomy Examined and Exposed, proving that the Earth was not a Globe. In 1885, in Baltimore, he published a hundred proofs that the Earth is not a Globe. Carpenter argued that: - "There are rivers that flow hundreds of thousand miles above sea level without falling more than a few feet, including the Nile, which, in a thousand, falls only one foot. With the idea of ​​the convexity of the Earth, it is therefore reasonable proof that the Earth is not a globe. " - "If the Earth were a terrestrial globe, a small model globe would be the best - for the truest - for the navigator to go to sea. But such a thing is not known: with such a toy as a guide, the sailor would ruin his ship, with certainty! this is a proof that the Earth is not a globe. " Carpenter was a vegetarian, a believer in the power of mesmerism and spiritualism, he even made pamphlets. He also thought that eating meat was the source of many ailments. In 1849, another English writer Samuel Rowbotham (1816-1885) produced works in the same direction as those of Carpenter. He argued that ships disappearing under the horizon, could be explained by the laws of perspective in relation to the human eye.

First published in 1895, this volume contains a series of arguments against the idea that the world is round. The belief that the Earth is flat and not a globe existed in many ancient civilisations, but we now know that this is not true. However, even today there are those who believe in a flat earth, just as there was when ideas of a spherical earth were relatively new. Within this book, the author explains why these new ideas of the planet as a globe are absurd, with interesting examples and explanations as to precisely why. Highly recommended for those with an interest in Flat Earth theory and the history of astronomy. Contents include: "Ships 'Going Down!'," "How Much Loner Will it Be?," "Absurd Theory!," "No Proof to be Had," "When the Man Has Time!," "Earth A Globe," "The Scientific Wager of 1870," "Our Opponents Ways and Means," etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this book today in an affordable, modern edition complete with the original text and artwork.

This book reveals the mother of all conspiracies. It sets forth biblical proof and irrefutable evidence that will cause the scales to fall from your eyes and reveal that the world you thought existed is a myth. The most universally accepted scientific belief today is that the earth is a globe, spinning on its axis at a speed of approximately 1,000 miles per hour at the equator, while at the same time it is orbiting the sun at approximately 66,600 miles per hour. All of this is happening as the sun, in turn, is supposed to be hurtling through the Milky Way galaxy at approximately 500,000 miles per hour. The Milky Way galaxy, itself, is alleged to be racing through space at a speed ranging from 300,000 to 1,340,000 miles per hour. What most people are not told is that the purported spinning, orbiting, and speeding through space has never been proven. In fact, every scientific experiment that has ever been performed to determine the motion of the earth has proven that the earth is stationary. Yet, textbooks ignore the scientific proof that contradicts the myth of a spinning and orbiting globe. Christian schools have been hoodwinked into teaching heliocentrism, despite the clear teaching in the bible that the earth is not a sphere and does not move. This book reveals the evil forces behind the heliocentric deception, and why scientists and the Christian churches have gone along with it.

"Zetetic Astronomy" is an 1881 treatise by Samuel Birley Rowbotham. Samuel Birley Rowbotham (1816 - 1884) was an English writer and inventor. He is most famous "Zetetic Astronomy", an idea that the Earth is not spherical, but an enclosed plane centred at the North Pole and encircled by a wall of ice. According to Rowbotham, the Sun, Moon, planets, and stars are only a few hundred miles above the Earth. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in Flat Earth theory, and it is not to be missed by collectors of vintage literature of this ilk. Contents include: "Introduction--Experiments proving the Earth to be a Plane", "The Earth no Axial or Orbital Motion", "The True Distance of the Sun and Stars", "The Sun moves in a Circle over the Earth, concentric with the North Pole", "Diameter of Sun's path Constantly Changing", "Causes of Day and Night, Seasons, &c.", "Cause of 'Sun Rise' and 'Sun Set'", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.

Contrary to popular belief fostered in countless school classrooms the world over, Christopher Columbus did not discover that the earth was round. The idea of a spherical world had been widely accepted in educated circles from as early as the fourth century b.c. Yet, bizarrely, it was not until the supposedly more rational nineteenth century that the notion of a ?at earth really took hold. Even more bizarrely, it persists to this day, despite Apollo missions and widely publicized pictures of the decidedly spherical Earth from space. Based on a range of original sources, Garwood's history of ?at-Earth beliefs---from the Babylonians to the present day---raises issues central to the history and philosophy of science, its relationship to religion and the making of human knowledge about the natural world. Flat Earth is the ?rst de?nitive study of one of history's most notorious and persistent ideas, and it evokes all the intellectual, philosophical, and spiritual turmoil of the modern age. Ranging from ancient Greece, through Victorian England, to modern-day America, this is a story that encompasses religion, science, and pseudoscience, as well as a spectacular array of people and places. Where else could eccentric aristocrats, fundamentalist preachers, and conspiracy theorists appear alongside Copernicus, Newton, and NASA, except in an account of such a legendary misconception? Thoroughly enjoyable and illuminating, Flat Earth is social and intellectual history at its best.

Wolves in sheep's clothing have pulled the wool over our eyes. For almost 500 years, the masses have been thoroughly deceived by a cosmic fairy-tale of astronomical proportions. We have been taught a falsehood so gigantic and diabolical that it has blinded us from our own experience and common sense, from seeing the world and the universe as they truly are. Through pseudo-science books and programs, mass media and public education, universities and government propaganda, the world has been systematically brain-washed, slowly indoctrinated over centuries into the unquestioning belief of the greatest lie of all time. A multi-generational conspiracy has succeeded, in the minds of the masses, to pick up the fixed Earth, shape it into a ball, spin it in circles, and throw it around the Sun! The greatest cover-up of all time, NASA and Freemasonry's biggest secret, is that we are living on a plane, not a planet, that Earth is the flat, stationary center of the universe.
