What?

No one has any more Bullshit evidence to lay on this one?


I suggest you make this a sticky.

Where exactly did I Even mention "Anti-FE" conspirators.


I said professionals if I remember correctly.

Defintion TIme:
Professional - Someone that knows more than you because they are paid to do it and most likely went to school for an amount of time equal to or greater than the amount of time youve been alive

Well You can't see the picture, and you can't tell from the replies in this thread, So what are you basing this whole "RE" business on.


Possible reasons you can't see the picture are:
1.) You're an idiot
2.) God Hates you

Flat Earth Q&A / How does sunset happen?

"A: It's a perspective effect. Really, the sun is just getting farther away; it looks like it disappears because everything gets smaller and eventually disappears as it gets farther away.

One problem with this. If the sun was to get far enough away from the Earth to create night, all heat on the earth would dissapate in a matter of hours. Crops would fail, lakes would flash freeze, anyone outside would freeze to death in a matter of minutes. It would be global chaos."


You see, if the Sun Moved away from the Earth at night, For NO RESON MIND YOU, wait a second,

What force is governing the sun's movement away from the Earth?

Riddle me that retard

Allow me to please further explain myself.
Pardon my previous posts.


A country near the "ice wall", It is possible to fly from a location in that area to another country, on the other side of the "flat earth" without doing a 180.

You can just go straight the entirity of the trip without ever colliding with this wall or changing direction.



Pardon me not being specific.

Just nobody has ever said which countries are where on this flat earth.

"name         Ann
status       student
age          14

Question -   Can you give one undisputable answer to:
"Is the earth round, and how do we prove it."
Because we are having a debate in my class, and the teacher kept saying
'the earth is flat'  And I have to give him one undisputable answer.
------------------------------------------------
I may be wrong about this, but I think your teacher is trying to
demonstrate to you that anything and everything is open to dispute.  In
fact, a rather famous theorem in the philosophy of science, the Duhem-Quine
theorem, states that it is impossible to conclusively disprove any
scientific hypothesis.  That includes such hypotheses as the earth is flat,
photography steals the soul of the object being photographed, and apples
are highly toxic to humans.  To hold on to such hypotheses, it may be
necessary to put forth some rather farfetched explanations of what we can
observe, but it can always be done.

In fact, science does not work by conclusively and indisputably refuting
bad hypotheses.  Instead, hypotheses stand or fail on their ability to
explain known observations, and to predict the outcome of observations that
haven't been performed yet.  Let's take the flat earth versus round earth
hypotheses as an example.  A round earth is the most stable shape according
to gravitational theory; a flat earth would tend to collapse toward the
center, and people standing near the edges would feel a gravitational pull
toward the center of the flat surface instead of perpendicular to the
surface.  Your teacher could counter that gravitational theory is wrong;
magic holds us to the earth.  This may be true, but it doesn't explain why
gravitational theory works so well at explaining how things fall, and the
observed trajectories of the planets and their moons.  You could tell your
teacher that photographs of the earth from space show that it is round,
just like the globe model in your classroom.  He could counter that those
photographs are government fakes.  Perhaps so, but we can see that other
planets and moons are round;  wouldn't it make more sense to say that the
earth is round, too?  Your teacher could say that the earth is special and
different.  You could ask how numerous people have sailed or flown around
the earth if the earth is flat.  He would have to say that every one of
these people, separated as they are in time and space, belongs to the same
great conspiracy aimed at brainwashing us into supposing that the earth is
round.  You could ask him about the communications networks that are linked
by satellite - how can you have satellites orbiting a flat earth?  He might
then tell you that there really aren't any satellite links - everything is
connected by wires, or a close-packed array of relay antennas.

We could go on and on, and I bet that in your classroom you HAVE gone on
and on.  As you see, there is no single fact  you could tell your teacher
that he couldn't dispute in some way.  If you step back and look at it,
though,what kind of world would it have to be if your teacher were right?
Gravity doesn't function here like it does everywhere else in the solar
system, there's a huge conspiracy reaching across hundreds of years to
convince us (for no apparent reason) that the earth is round instead of
flat, the progression of the seasons, and even of day and night, are
controlled by the gods.  Eventually, a reasonable person would have to
concede that it would make a lot more sense to agree that the earth is
indeed round.

There are some other theories to explain things that do not meet this test
of scientific reasonableness, yet are still put forth and defended by many
people in society.  This example of the flat earth hypothesis lets you see
how difficult it is to change someone's mind when they're set on some
strange or unrealistic theory.  It also lets you see that just if a theory
"can't be disproven" doesn't necessarily mean that it is correct, or that
it should be taken seriously for very long.

No matter what the Nebraska School Board says.

angle of the sun at noon in Alexandria, Egypt, and in Syrene.  Finding the
difference in the angles and knowing the distance between the two points,
the circumference can be calculated.  He calculated the circumference in
stadia, which we do not know the conversion to our present day measure."

By Straight Line,

I mean around the curvature of the Earth.


To Fly from San Francisco to the Beijing on a Flat Earth,


Would require you to do a 180 degree turn and go the other side of the flat earth.

I've never seen a flat earth picture that even looked close to real.


So there is no stalemate.

Not to mention there is no proof that 100% of NASA phtos are fake

Just because I considered it, doesn't mean I'm going to do it.


I'm suggesting it to anyone that hasn't thought of it, who has the means to.

Not To Mention, I don't know any Geologists.

Even If I did, I doubt they could keep a straight face after I ask them if they think the world is flat.

Has anyone considered, consulting a professional geologist.

Perhaps an independent one to be free of those nasty government conspiracies.

Actually call some up and tell me how many actually agree the Earth is not a sphere.

I prefer to have the opinion of someone that knows what their talking about.

The world is round because,

1. Flights from The west coast of the United States to the Orient are possible and fly in straight lines

Same with New York - London Flights

2. There's been expeditions to thei so-called, imaginary continent as far back as 1910.

3. There is no motive for the world to preform such a cover up,
Nor the resources to do so.

This is an actual image of the Earth, as it exists in the universe.



Suck on That Logic!
