Title: What convinced you the flat earth model is correct?

To anyone that believes the FE model, what convinced you it is correct?

To anyone that believes the FE model, what convinced you it is correct?

Define "FE model:" do you mean the standardly accepted Mono-Pole Model? I'm presuming you just mean that we accept the Earth as being flat instead of round?

Honestly, a good deal of it is trusting my gut. I was raised religiously, trusted my gut on that one, and... I don't believe in any sort of higher powers, supernatural spooks or other ghosties. I was raised to believe that the Earth is round like any other kid, trusted my gut on that one, and... there are some very, very interesting things, odd discrepancies and information that really makes you think, to consider.

It makes sense to me.

I quite like pizzas too (https://www.dropbox.com/s/wzvcckn1sn337xc/pizza16.png?dl=1)but that's hardly a reason.

Is it that you thought the earth was shaped just like the North Polar Azimuthal Equidistant Projection ?
(The one showing Antarctica as the ice ring.)
Some FE's like this one !

Or did you think the earth was shaped just like the Bipolar Projection ?
(The one showing no ice ring but showing Antarctica as a continent. )
Tom Bishop likes this one !

Which one of the above did you think was a map of the flat earth and that convinced  you the earth was flat ?
Or was it some other map or some other reason that convinced you that the flat earth model  is correct ?

Like your teachers ,  who were '' indoctrinated  '' by teachers and professors who were  '' indoctrinated '' by people in science, engineering , astronomy , geography and other subjects aren't right,  but the only people who believe that the earth is flat know best ?

My early school days were much like yours and I just accepted the fact that the earth is round , or was in the shape of the globe.
But when I studied various subjects in college I was more convinced of it.
But when I started working in military service and civilian jobs I observed so many things but then I knew for certain that the earth was shaped like a globe and flat earth certainly didn't make any sense at all.
My apologies , but we people who work in the real world wonder why on earth (no pun intended....LOL) would even think the earth was a flat disc ?

Just to put it simply which of the following do you think  is like (but maybe not exactly) the shape of the earth ?

(2) A pizza

Dude, take your stroke medicine.
I have never, ever claimed the Earth is flat.

Is there a chapter in your Navy Manual
about how to yank your head out of your butt?

Moose antlers have two distinct and useful purposes. First, as a means to fend off interloping moose during mating season. Secondly, the lateral shape and width make it impossible for a moose to insert it’s head into his anus or one belonging to another moose for that matter. Therefore a moose’s head can neither be put in nor be in a butt.

I was in involved in a horrendous yachting accident, where I received a brutal brain injury.  After that, everything started to look a bit flat.  I watched a few youtube videos, and quickly became a flat earther.

Its funny how the shoddy "proofs" are good enough for you (faded) but when numbers and evidnec comes into play you can brush it away with a "well who really knows".

Looks flat!

What about showing these "vids with water behind the boat that is supposedly partially behind the curve"? How can we comment on what we haven't seen?

There is a very slight curvature over the water. When you are in the middle of a lake or the ocean, the water is curving away from you , downward from you , in all directions to the horizon. But the curvature is so slight due to the size of the earth that it is not apparent to the eye.
The old ''ship over the horizon'' is a simple debunk of the flat idea.
The ''vids'' are just every day occurrences of ships that have sailed beyond the horizon.
Of course if FE's have always just made their observations from looking out their windows, I have my doubts as to if any FE's have ever been to sea to observe this ?

Here is a simple way to demonstrate this.
Make a scale drawing of a circle - a circle with a circumference of 25,000 miles - the circumference of the globe.
Then with the same scale mark off an arc of about 10 miles - this would be how much would be seen from a lookout in a crow's nest on a ship .
Notice how little curvature there is in that arc of only 10 miles in a circle with a circumference of 25,000 miles.

At least , if you are a FE, you have a lot of of choices to believe in for the ''FE model'' depending on which choice you pick.
