Flat Earth Truth Presented to Mormons
The other day I had the opportunity of talking to two young women who are Mormons. We have all met Mormons who have come knocking on our doors. For me, I met these two at the library. And I told them that I had heard about the Mormons’ belief, so I didn’t want to talk about it. I said that if they would like to hear what I would like to talk about, I’ll talk. They agreed. By the way, this conversation just happened Saturday, March 25.
The conversation went something like this:
“Great, we can sit over here and talk.” (There were three chairs in a corner.)
I started off by small chatter and ask how they like it here. Then I said I would like to talk about some laws of physics – which God created – and I promised to make it interesting. I started off with the ‘speed of the spinning earth.’ Then, I said of how even 100 mph wind can destroy buildings and a 200 mph wind can do vast devastation. I then said, “Imagine what a 1,000 mph wind can do; what about a 65,000 mph?” This got their attention and they said they didn’t know the answer. But it was only mild response – it really didn’t make them think and want to know more.
I then told them about the physics of water and that we know water can not stay on a ball or anything uneven. So, I said, “How can water say on a spinning ball going 65,000 mph through space?” They didn’t know but I could see that it really didn’t stir them up, yet.
Later I talked a little about geography and said, “Wouldn’t you want to know where Australia was? Wouldn’t this information be important?” Then, one of the girls said that it really didn’t matter. I couldn’t believe how ignorant people want to keep themselves! But I kept calm and said, “We’ll, if you were to study geography it would be important.” I could have said a lot more but I wanted to get on to other topics in the time we had.
I talked about how measurements are made on a globe that determines how far they can see on a globe earth. I presented a simple problem of, 8 x 36, and asked what the answer was. One said, “I don’t have my calculator with me.” Can you imagine how stupid people could be? No wonder they got themselves into this cult – which it is. So, I did the math for them. (This was to present the Bedford Canal experiment where on guy on a boat was 6 miles away, so you use 8 inches times the 6 miles distance.)
To make a long story short, I finally got their interest stirred up. I concluded that they can do a search on YouTube with the words ‘flat earth’ to find out more, which they said they will look up. Weather they do or not only God knows. However, I did my duty and they are without excuse. As the Apostle Paul wrote – witness to someone once or twice and if they don’t believe, ‘wipe the dust from off your shoes’ when you leave them.
What I’m saying is that it’s better to witness to someone then just brushing them off and saying you don’t have time or whatever. The fact that these two young women are Mormons and me knowing a little about what they believe in, should make them stop and think about their beliefs. Because, once they accept the flat earth, they can’t accept some of their Mormon doctrines. One of which is, ‘that we will become like God and live on another planet that we would be in charge of. As you can see, they either will have to discard the simple laws of God’s physics or they will have to discard the false belief of what the Mormon elders teach. If they should keep with the lie and continue in the Mormon belief, they will always have a conflict in their minds; they will always have some doubt about what they are taught.
Once they accept the fact that we live under a dome (firmament) and that we can’t leave it, and that we are the only ‘planet’ out there, they can’t accept the belief that they will live on another planet.
I realise I could be wrong and that the two women will continue in their Mormon belief and believe in the flat earth, too. Or, they might forget all about what I told them and continue along their merry way. However, we do know from testimonies of people who had a false belief and dropped it because it did not fit in with the flat earth. And this only happened because someone did take the time to tell them (or you) – even if it was not one-on-one. Even if all they had seen was a video, this is still witnessing to them. Some believe and other don’t. I say this because I don’t want to hear someone say, “You are wasting your time,” because we don’t know who will accept the message or who will not – just like the Apostles and the millions that came after them that witnessed to others – some believed and others didn’t.
The girls did say before they left that it makes them believe more in God. The question is, is it the God of the Bible or the made-up god of Joseph Smith?
