South Korea FEIC 18
Because of folks at a Protestant church to whom I took offence at what I saw as their gross misinterpretation of Ecclesiastes 1:5, I first came across Charles Johnson’s Flat Earth Research Society International in 1994 during a search for spherical geocentric organisations in Gale Research’s ‘Encyclopedia of Associations’ listed as a geoscience organisation. It was above and beyond what I was looking for, but further research found nothing, and I eventually contacted Charles Johnson & looked into the references he sent me which got me looking for Rowbotham’s 1865 book which I borrowed through interlibrary loan and read in the fall of 1996 which is when I became convinced the earth is flat.
About 4 years now, a friend mentioned it on FB and Instantly I just knew in my heart and soul it was the answer to many questions about The Bible I had. Like the scales just dropped from my eyes.... OH, The SUN, MOON & STARS MOVE that is HOW GOD held them STILL for Joshua in 10:13 for one whole day ... or at least WHY HE held them still. And I always wondered when Yeshua comes back everyone will SEE HIM coming at the Trumpet call, how can that happen on a ball I would ask myself? I NEVER ever believed in the Moon Landing! knew that since 9 years old! If the sun, moon & stars were made on the 4th day what was earth spinning around?..... and why did The sun or daytime moon come at me, over me, and away from me a day at The beach?.... The water was still as a sheet of glass on The Gulf of Mexico and yet.... they say earth is spinning... noooooo.......
So I started researching and researching and researching, 2 of my fav's are Dave Murphy as he was my #1 source at 1st .....and now DMarble! FE Offensive! I loved your level experiment!
I thought it quite significant and appropriate to mention here that back in the 1990’s I discovered Cosmas Indicopleustes and the ancient Byzantine Christian Flat Earth model almost simultaneously with Rowbotham and the modern FE model & I adopted the early Christian model and followed it ever since which Rowbotham’s arguments have certainly supported. I was methodically searching for a Church at that time, and this side project with flat earthism was kind of a precursor to my turning to the Eastern Orthodox Church by the end of the 1990’s.
