International Flat Earth Society
Dover, England
Dear Mr. Shenton;
^
We have recently read with great interest an article
about pov and the Flat Earth Society. Our seventh grade
general science classes have compiled a list of questions
we would like to confront you with concerning your theory
about a flat earth, A reply from you would be greatly
appreciated, A self addressed envelope is included.
Thank you.
The questions are as follows:
1, When there is an eclipse of the moon, why is
there a circular shadow on the moon?
2, How do you explain night and day?
3 , How do you explain seasonal changes?
4, How did Magellan sail around the world?
5 , Why doesn't the whole world have daylight at
once?
6, Where is the cut-off point off the world?
7, Explain a ship”sinking”in the horizon as it
leaves.
Sincerely yours
Alan Studer

will not do it. “You must be BUKJN AliAlJN."
(John 3:7.)
As at physical birth you receive life which
you never possessed before, so, by the NEW
BIRTH you receive Life which you never
possessed before even in the most minute
degree. By physical birth we become par­
takers of the human nature, by being BORN
AGAIN we become “partakers of the Divine
nature.” (II Pet. 1:4.) The Second Birth is
not an improvement of the old nature, it is
the imparting of a NEW nature — entirely
NEW. The old nature is unimproved and

Deal* Mr. Shenton;
Recently I liad the pleasure hearing you speak on television with
Pierre Berton ahout your theories on the shape of the earth and
heavens. I have heard of your society before but this v/as the first
opportunity I have evez' had to learn anything at all about it.
I must say you have an intriguing point of view. Since the half-
1
hour broadcast was hai'dly long enough to fully grasp its import,
have you possibly published any literature or charts which explain
everything fully which I might purchase please. I hope you can
find a ^loment while ansv^ering your other correspondence to consider
Tiy inquiry too. Enclosed is an
OGTlAl''!?® for youi’ convenience.
Thank you.
Sincerely yours,

Dear Mr Shenton,
r
I am writing to thank you for your help in compiling ay
training prograame on the concept of a flat earth. It was only intended
as an exercise in television technique, and therefore I used those
examples which were m*st easily visualised. The direct observation
experiments used by the nineteenth-century writers came over very
well, and your own explanation of the satellite photographs. It was
a pity that the limited scope of the programme did not allow me t© make
use of your weather map information.
One result has been a very lively discussion here among
many people
have never considered the subject before, nor the
feasability of an alternative explanation.
If it has done nothing
else, the programme has made them re-examine the evidence for themselves,
and I think that you yourself would hope for little more than this.
Once again let me thank you for taking up your time
on By behalf, and I am sending you a cheque for two guineas from the
Cente for Educational Television,

Dear Mr. Shenton,
Recently my local newspaper, th.e
Democrat and Glironicle (Rochester),
carried an article concerning your
explanation of the concept of a flat
earth as related to U.S. Astronauts
Conrad and Gordon]s space journey of
a few weeks ago.
Although unconvinced, I was fas­
cinated by your theories and by the
idea of a ’’Plat Earth Society" in
general. Consequently, I was wonder­
ing whether it would be possible for
you to send me any booklets or pamph­
lets the Society may publish, and in­
formation about the origin, purposes
and membership regulations of the
Flat Earth Society. Anything you send
would be appreciated. Thank you.
Sincerely,
Robert E. S ^ r r y
