Space Travel Fun:
My favorite channel, the NASA channel. 376 on Direct TV.  Live feeds from the current launched space shuttle, interviews with astronuats, that kind of thing.

By the way, before anyone says "Its a conspiracy", its not a conspiracy if there is no just cause.  Also, before someone says "READ THE FAQ" I already have.  Wrote circles around itself. No proof of anything.

Then try reading Earth not a Globe. I link to which can be found in my signature.

Reading it now.  Bunch of nonsense, similar to your FAQ.  Also, explain the path of airplane travel.  Instead of going in a straight line, they go at a slight curve to conserve fuel.  If the Earth was indeed flat, there would be no need for this.  Also, all you have to say is to read an article thats URL contains the words "sacredtexts"? I lol'd.  I lol'd hard.

EDIT: Earth, only 60 miles around.

Plus, in contradiction with this article, when looking out upon the sea, you will see the sails of a sailboat dissapear off the horizon last.

'Sacred Texts" is just the name of the site hosting the book. You can also purchase it from amazon.com if you'd like.

No you won't. I've observed this many times myself. The whole boat simply 'fades' out of view.

Actually, it doesn't "fade out of view". Bottom half disappears first.
Haha. Oh wow. Way to skip parts of my arguement and quoting the funny part about "sacredtexts".  It seems that all FE'ers do that.  With science, with proof of the Earth is a globe, with everything.  You all fail hard.

written just 126 years ago

It's full of exciting up to date science such as Earth having twice the curve it's supposed to (taken directly from Rownbottom's "calculations"). The moon emits cold light apparently. If you shine moonlight on things such as plants and animals they start to decay and die!

Right. It's almost as bad as Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, and On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. Those old books are all rubbish.

No one has even bothered to my post here on space and proof of the round Earth.  The first response I got was to read a 126 year old book about the earth being like a map and the moon making things decay. I think FE Theory is down to about negative fifty-million credibility points.

You can't prove or disprove a conspiracy, pretty much by definition.  Very conveneint, huh?

Prove it.
Earth is flat, the pictures say it's round. Obviously they're fake.

And satellites do not exist, since space travel is not possible on a FE.

I have asked you this several times, but prove to me that the Earth is flat.  Don't link me to books, I want a current believer in FE to explain it to me.

Climb a mountain, take a plane ride, look out your window, watch a ship sail into the horizon, or perform any of the experiments given in Earth not a Globe and you will see that Earth cannot possibly be any other shape.

Here's an easy, simple experiment I've conducted myself:

Take any three points on earth with a significant distance apart (Paris, London, and Berlin, for instance) and measure the angles between the points. If the earth were a globe the angles would add up to more than 180 degrees. This is called positive curvature and would prove the Earth is round. If the angles measure to be exactly 180 degrees, as they do in plain-old Euclidean geometry, it implies that the earth is a flat surface. Triangles whose angles measure less than 180 degrees imply a negative curvature (like a horse saddle).

Tom, the angles DO add up to more than 180 degrees you idiot.

I have.  On a flat map they add up to 180. On a globe or cylender, the angles will differ because the lines themselves are curved.  Tom Bishop, this experiment tells us nothing besides some geomerty lesson we learned in high school.

I didn't say anything about doing it on a map or globe, you ignorant sheeple. Go out and perform the experiment for yourself.

But to take places that are a large distance apart, then you must use some sort of navigation device.  Plus, we arn't ignorant if you didn't give us enough data. Its like saying pygmies are all kids because they are dwarfed in size.

Use a car (or ask your mother to drive you) to get to the three distant points. Then use surveying equipment to take the measurements. It's really quite simple.
