What made you believe the earth is...flat?
« on: June 06, 2008, 01:01:53 PM »
Probably a thread about this anyway but im not in the mood to go through the forums. Anyway why did you guys believe the earth is flat? Did you guys see that its actually flat or just happened to find a atlas map on your teachers board and go "the world is flat!". But seriously why do you think the world....is flat and why did you believe it?

It was a pretty gradual process. I kind of always had my doubts, somehow the Copernica-Newtonian model just didn't sit well with me and has often seemed a tad ridiculous. I was a de-facto globularist until I discovered the work of Samuel Rowbotham, which opened my eyes to the possibility that I genuinely wasn't wrong to doubt globularism. All this happened in about 2005. By the time I found this site, I was a fairly committed zeteticist. I started my own local Flat Earth group, SWEFES, and started to prepare to continue to promote the noble belief system which Johnson (rest his soul) had left behind.

I got hit on the head and woke up knowing that the Earth is flat

I came here and argued trollishly, then decided it'd be more fun to mock REers, so decided to play DA.
No but I'm guess your what? 90? Cause you just so darn mature </sarcasm>

I was reincarnated and I soon looked out my window.

The rest is history.

It does if you can see the Earth, but you can only see the Earth at night at certain times of year, because you live on Mars, which is round, hence your ignorant belief.

Most of it's white, and it's flat. Your're thinking of Neptune.

97% of the Earth is water. Looks blue to me. Or a little green. Then white. And can I really trust someone named "General Douchebag"?

Clouds cover most of the Earth, and most of the rest is the sea reflecting sunlight. I don't see why my name makes me any less trustworthy, but your'res does call into question your're scientific neutrality. Perhaps your're a little biased?

Of course, because only stupid people believe in scientific method, but all smart people are close minded, and all close minded people are smart!

I first questioned the shape of the earth when I had a mystical experience.  Since then I read much on it and came to the conclusion through research and by realizing the sometimes lackings of non-zetetic science.

I've conducted a number of experiments on my local bay which have suggested that the earth is not a globe of popular credulity, but an extended plane.

It proves if there is someone is outside the window or not.
