Flat Earth General / Re: Is only Earth flat?

... to help me understand the FE point of view.
There is no FE point of view other than "the Earth is flat."

Yes, its so frustrating that none of their opinions go beyond "I'm right, you're wrong, shut up" whenever anyone asks an intelligent question.  Another behavioral trait I've noticed, FE supporters written speech skills seem to be sub-par.  Grammar, spelling, general coherence, it seems to be lost on them.

I really would just like an answer as to why they believe these things that are so obviously counter to know scientific principles.

Planets are little dots of light in the sky.  Look below your feet.  It is not the same thing.

Yes, planets do look like little dots in the sky.
Unless you own or have access to a telescope.
Then they kinda look like little balls.

If you have access to a real kick ass telescope,
You will see they are actually quite big balls.
It's indisputable, you can see the spot on Jupiter.
It moves across the surface of the plant.

Instead of arguing, why not buy a telescope and use it?

Bullshit. You look at Jupiter you can not 'see it as a ball'. Can you see depth on a 2D surface? You see a flat circular disc. Who is to say the rest of the planets aren't flat and they are simply facing us in a way we see them top side.

Do you honestly believe the other planets are flat disks appearing vertically on to us locked in that position to fool us?  And what keeps them locked in that position, motionless in space, and by whom? And for what purpose?  I do not mean to criticize, I am looking for an honest and plausible (that falls in line with the laws of physics) opinion to help me understand the FE point of view.

You do understand that something that is hundreds and thousands  of millions of miles away wouldn't look the same as the ground you're standing on, right?

Many of us do not believe the Earth is a planet.

Why isn't the earth a planet, and why is everyone other planet a planet?  What is the point of Earth being a flat disk?

I'm curious, if the Earth is flat, what are the rest of the planets like? 

To clarify, some FE opinions I've read state that the other planets are indeed globes.  How can this be? 

What exactly do FE supporters believe about the universe?  Does it exist, or doesn't it?  Are other planets spherical in shape or are they not?  Why would Earth be flat and not the rest?

Globe model claims that Polaris is 433.8 light years away, directly above North pole.
Flat model claims that Polaris is much closer, at couple of thousand miles.

Globe Earthers, if you don't know what Flat model claims to be there, don't pretend you do.
What you know is from Globe model.

Flat Earthers will know better what Flat model claims to be at 433.8 light years above North pole.
This is the question for them.

There is no NSEW, or above, or below, or to the side in space. It is all relative.  If you take the earth as the reference point Polaris still wouldn't be "directly above" you.  It's simply visible from your point of view.

Take a look while the livestream's up.
A simple car that survived being launched up through the atmosphere, survived the friction, and got out into outer space, floating so freely that a camera can not only see its undamaged frame, but the space around it. And look how quickly the stars whoosh by.

Just look.
You can tell the solo company's a bit less practised at this.

Dude.....the car wouldn't have experienced any external friction due to being enclosed in the capsule faring.  The faring opened once the rocket was out of the atmosphere in an environment of.....NO FRICTION.  Air or atmosphere or some such surrounding is required to produce friction, with vacuum being absent of anything that would cause friction.  The car easily made it to space without damage.

Stars whooshing  As you know the only star within 4 light years of Earth is our star, the Sun.  The journey to the sun would itself take months and months.  The only way you would see stars in the distance whooshing by is of the craft was traveling near light speed.  I know it is difficult to understand because the distances involved are so vast. 

I do not understand how you can deduct that the live, uncut, 1 shot, video is fake...thousands of people have witnessed hundreds of launches.  You can tell CG from real life and these videos are clearly real.
