Title: What is the reason you are a Flat Earther
Post by: acgusta2 on October 16, 2015, 04:19:04 PM
To the Flat Earthers on this forum what is it that caused you to become a Flat Earther?  I'm asking this because I think it's easier to show you why the Earth is round if I understand what your reasoning is for thinking the Earth is Flat as then I can focus mainly on addressing the specific reasons you think the Earth is flat.

The fact that most RE'ers are an embarrassment to the species is reason enough.

Most flat earthers just enjoy trolling internet forums.  Some are genuinely mentally disturbed, however they are definitely in the minority.

Could you explain how most people who acknowledge that the Earth is round are an embarrassment to the species?

Have you not seen the ridiculous arguments put forth by RE'ers?  Just because you believe the Earth is round does not make you intelligent.  Basically, see any post by sokarul, Master_Evar, TexasH, etc.

Gonna just quote this, to answer acgusta. Round Earthers can't be bothered to have any kind of discussion, so they insult and try to discredit the people rather than an argument. Even trolls grow tired of them, I remember hearing about Testify. It's just idiocy.
For people who believe Flat Earthers are entirely trolls and lunatics, you have to wonder why they engage in so much angry debate.

Actually, you got this all backwards.

FLAT EARTHERS ARE AN EMBARRASSMENT TO THE SPECIES - ALL OF THEM.

If you look closely, that picture really shows no curvature of the earth.  Could've been taken at an angle--like in the old Batman TV show.

How would FE's be an embarrassment?  What if they're right?  If you're confident and secure in what you believe, you wouldn't feel threatened or feel the need to ridicule if someone else thinks differently.  Understanding how the other person thinks would be helpful too.

Look at earth from space, the spin makes it kind of flat around the equator. Therefore i'm a flat earther.

It does show a curvature, and I can just barely see it. It's super clear in an image editor.

I'd think it was entirely populated by dodgy bankers and posh watch makers.

Then I'd think I lived on the forest moon, because all I can see are trees and Wookiees.

I tried it and I couldn't see Las Vegas from my home in Utah.  If it were really so obvious that Earth were flat then feel free to enter my challenge where you can earn $250 and make a flat earther out of me if you just point out one thing that the round Earth model predicts which we don't observe in reality.

I just arrived here at FES forum a year ago when a silly RE's announced he could fly to the Moon and back and had thus won my Challenge about it. But nobody can win my Challenge.

My Challenge is just great FUN! Plenty silly, stupid, mentally ill, crazy people believe in UFOs, Russians and dogs in space, later in American air force pilots that couldn't fly but looked good and thus could be presented as astronauts, etc. They do not realize all is just Hollywood FUN. In the confusion some people suggest Earth is flat too. Why not? I do not live in North Korea and can still open my mouth.

Regardless, it seems to be possible to send up satellites. Because people buy rocket engines from Airbus NV that I am a shareholder of.

You're wrong, I just checked the file in an image editor against a straight line and it does in fact show a curve. I could have just got a ruler out against the screen but...ah whatever....

souls need a place to be put to learn and grow. In the void(heaven) there is no time and space. Experiencing the personality changing lessons learned in such a reality; that we presently learn on earth; are inconsequential in the void since time has no beginning and end. but when we are put in an aquarium built exclusively for destructive humans who are on a kindergarten level of learning phase we can see how cause/effect work and thus make a lasting changes of who we really are, not just the persona of surface conciousness. Flat earth is just a fail-safe system so we can't leave and cause destruction to all the other souls in existence.

It depends on the lens used.  The Moon only takes up about 1/2 of a degree when viewed from the Earth.  If they used a wide angle lens that could be the correct size.

I became a flat Earther after examining the mountains of evidence that the Earth is flat and not round, as I had been brainwashed to believe.  If they can lie to you about the shape of the Earth, just imagine what else those unscrupulous cads are capable of lying about.

Well fortunately ALL evidence shows a round earth so you'll be glad to know you haven't been lied to.

I know you roundies ignore all evidence that goes against your theory, but are you now claiming that the government never lies to you and me?

So you can quote some evidence against a round earth that we have ignored?

Initially it was the number of assumptions required for RET. Now it's the fact REers resort to open lies and hypocrisy to defend their model: if they were secure enough for honest debate, you'd expect them to actually be capable of it.

There is zero evidence of the ball Earth theory, none. None has ever been shown anywhere because there is is no curve, no curve not a ball, not a ball you can not call it a sphere. Like all ballTards you do not have any physical proof of the ball Earth theory, period.

There is even less but even more ridiculous "evidence" that the Earth is flat. But I really like this forum. Never thought that such a species of "people" really exists. They probably also don`t believe in Aids or Malaria or Cancer....these diseases are made up from the government, there is no single proof that they exist. They also believe that America (does America even exists? I never went there so I assume it is just fake and a lie made up from world government) is led by Reptiloids that are disguised as humans...

But I thought photos were out of bounds on this forum, seeing as how they can be easily manipulated?
Plenty of photos exist showing the earth to be spherical, and yet they are ignored.
Either photos can constitute evidence, or they can't.
Choose which one.

I know you try to touch the primary thing of round earth...
We all know that searching deffinitive prove that earth is flat was a long journey...
You may go for example to 6th century BC ... Pythagoras, Plato, Aristotle, Eratosthenes are few o Greek philosophers and astronomers that believed that "Earth is Globe". Sure there were no prove of Round Earth for next 2000 years, but eventually it came...
Do you think that if it was so easy as going to seeside, Plato/Pythagoras/WHATEVER NAME were so stupid not to look on the see? They looked, but they already known that it doesn't prove anything!

As first something like prove is the reality of Circumnavigation. They taught that earth is a globe 2000 years before Columbus journey. So now skip 2000 years to Columbus... Columbus taught that as earth is a globe, you may travel to India going over ocean... risky travel, because ships usually traveled near coast, and not for so long, but technology of navigation and ships was so advanced that he was able to convince somebody to support for that travel.... if you look he tried to get support from  King John II, but experts of King John rejected it because:

        Estimation of a travel distance of 2,400 miles (3,860 km) was, in fact, far too low.

Yes Experts didn't told King that its bullshit, they told him that Asia must by in fact more far so the crew will not have enough food and watter to stay alive till they reach Asia ... and they were true!!!!!!


Yes people think that Earth is Round for more then 2500 years... And yes, without travel to the space we just think... But I understand that travel to the space is LIE for FE, and that the theory of Globe that was used with success for many many years, beggining with astronomy, architecture, sailing, physics aso. Is just a coincidence, because earth is not simply globe, but it is  FLAT with some complicated physics that need to be explained, like sunset phenomen. 

=======================
And now i will be rude, so please ignore it if it touches your feelings:

FE almost say that people that spend whole life thinking about this kind of stuff (like Plato/Pythagoras/Aristotle/Kepler/Copernicus.... ) were just stupid people. Because FE theorist saw the true immediately just looking on horizon. They are smarter then Einstein, who were so stupid that he was not able to look on horizon to see the truth. Actually Einstein was so stupid that he dont get this simple idea of FLAT Earth, but spent best years of his life creating theory that just extend this RE LIE in exchange to create something usefull.
