Title: Most of you are confused, there are very few who know the truth.
Post by: bullhorn on March 14, 2007, 10:11:25 PM
   There is a belief in these forums that alot of people are in on the lie, infact that could not be the case. I guess most of you know how hard it is to keep a secret. The fact of the matter is that most people believe a lie and they teach that lie and work with it becuase, that is the only thing they know.


You dont need millions of people to be "in on it"


You just need a few with a good lie.

If this is about what I think it is about then I have no idea what you're going on about.

If it's not about what I think it's about, then what the hell it is about?

    Examine what you have said, and understand that is not the case. There are people here who do not believe a self-perpetuating lie.  To put is as simply as I can, when you look at the earth from the ground it is flat.  This is very clear to me and to others, please spare the pseudo-science.

When I look at the sky, I see stars as tiny pinpricks.
It also looks like if I reach my hand out, I could snuff out one star.

That's funny.  I think it looks like I can not touch the stars.  However, I can simply snuff out one star (or more) with my finger.

Absolutely correct. Round Earthers believe the lie and teach the lie and work with the lie, because they are indoctrinated into believing that it's the ONLY alternative. It is very difficult for anyone to see through this level of brainwashing.

HUMAN BEINGS, by nature, are much too individual, especially in this day and age, to only believe what other people pass down to them .. certainly kids that grew up who were curious enough would investigate it themselves

Really? Wow, you must be god, or somehow related to him, or maybe - heyyyyy... Did you offer loads of shit to him to be able to do that?

I bet there are some fundamentalist Christians who believe everyone is really, "deep down inside," a believer in their god.

Nope, I just put my finger up, then that which I can't see no longer exists.

Modern technology is far too advanced for there to be a conspiracy in which only a few people know.  We use space dependent technology on a daily basis.  Everything that relies on satellites must be faked.  That means you have to have hundreds of engineers who are in on the conspiracy to develop and implement the fake satellite technology and ensure that all the technology developed based on satellites still works on the flat earth and that no one knows the difference. 

Then there are the space programs like NASA.  All of the astronauts need to be in on the conspiracy.  You also have to have a significant amount of people to organize the fake shuttle launches and landings.  Where does the shuttle go?  You would have to say that they land it at some secluded location and then relaunch it for when the shuttle is supposed to land.  That would require an enormous amount of people and funds.  Then you have the space probes which are launched, and things like the hubble telescope.  There are hundreds of engineers at NASA that operate these things and are constantly analyzing the data they produce.  Either all of those people are in on the conspiracy or there is a significant amount of people who are faking the data at real time so that they don't know.  NASA would have to pay all of its normal employees and provide the funding for the RE related projects, while still having a huge amount of money left over to pay all of the conspirators and pay for all the infrastructure needed to fake a round earth. 

Then there is the problem of long distance transportation.  The distance between two places on the flat earth could be greatly different than on the round earth.  Don't you think pilots, for example, would notice this?  Or are there people deceiving them?

These are just a few of the things that would need to happen for the earth to be flat.  Do you really think this could be accomplished by a few people telling a lie?

Perhaps the folowing list I composed a while back under the pseudonym of 'Lord Byron' will help you get a bearing:
http://theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=4247.0

bullhorn has been around a while.  Aside from Daniel and Mr. Bill (who I have not heard from in ages), I have been around the longest with the exception of Flat Earth88 who left for over a year and a half and then briefly returned last year.  Chaltier and Dogplatter have been around since early last year.  The rest are comparatively new.

this is why i initially appreciated this forum. 7 people who believe in this crap and 300 people a day arguing about it. pure genius!

however, i think it's better than that. none of them on the list believe the world is flat.  this is pretty obvious.

this puts them in one of two categories.

1) very smart

2) very stupid

if they are 1) very smart, they don't believe it yet perpetuate the belief as sort of performance art

if they are 2) very stupid, then they believe the world is flat due to the people that belong in group 1)

The flatness could be an obtical illusion, thus your argument cannot be verifiable truth

You are trying to tell me that I don't believe the Earth is flat.  Well, you're wrong.  I decide what I believe and not anyone else, and I believe the Earth is flat. 
Moreover, I have believed this well over a decade now, and I have a bookshelf of literature on it.

And not everyone holds your ignorant opinion.  For example, Diego Draw has been around long enough to see that bullhorn is sincere.

How long have you been around?


I tell you what you believe. You don't believe the earth is flat. Everybody does, in fact, hold this opinion, and I dare you to prove otherwise.
