**Flat Earth Debate / Intelligence in Debate**

I'm curious what the basis for this is....

When we have such brilliant minds at work researching the size, shape, and nature of the celestial heavens (I'm talking about Astronomy), how is it that these brilliant minds have got everything so wrong?

I'm talking about people such as the brilliant Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant minds ever to walk the earth.

What evidence is so compelling, so detailed, so EXACT, that it has escaped his brilliant mind? And what are the formulas that are so complex that they prove his own formulas wrong?

For the earth to be flat, everything he has proven about not only the earth but the entire universe has to be wrong. Everything. Every star, every solar system, every galaxy, everything in the universe must stop existing as they have been proven to exist.

Do you realize what you're saying by believing that the Earth is flat? Nothing can exist if the Earth is flat except as something to orbit this simple disc. There has to be some REALLY great and damning formulas to prove this. The entire universe has been mapped out by now with surprising details.

To say that the people who have done this are ... "stupid" or "ignorant" or "just plain wrong" would require some REAL brain power. Yet... I'm not seeing the billions of computations and evidence that would be required to prove that.
