They do go into space.

 How do you know?

Because they say they do, silly.  And they make all those pretty pictures.

Yup, all those real, 100% true pictures.

 How do you know the pictures are real? Did you see an astronaut take the pictures?

Any chance there were some REAL scientists doing this "peer review"?

Yep. They were all real scientists. Dr. Samuel Birley Rowbotham, for example, was an English inventor and chemist. Read "Flat Earth: The History of an Infamous Idea" for a source.

Get some new research, peer reviewed if possible.

Earth Not a Globe underwent constant peer review by the the Universal Zetetic Society in a publication called "Earth Not a Globe Review", which had over 1000 subscribers.

The Earth Is round
Just so there is no doubt I had my grandma, my mom, and a few cousins look over that statement and they say it is true also, so it has been proven.
Only 2 things are infinite the universe and human stupidity, but I am not sure about the former.

i said REAL scientists, not quacks. They would get laughed out of ANY reputable scientific conference they walked into.
You either completely misunderstand the relevant points because you are unfamiliar with them, or you choose to manipulate your interpretation to continue to deceive others

Samuel Birley Rowbotham got great reviews from his lectures across Britain on Flat Earth Theory:

    "'PARALLAX' AT THE LECTURE HALL.--This talented lecturer is again in Greenwich, rivetting the attention of his audiences, and compelling them to submit to the facts which he brings before them--we say submit, for this they do; it seems impossible for any one to battle with him, so powerful are the weapons he uses. Mathematicians argue with him at the conclusion of his lectures, but it would seem as though they held their weapons by the blade and fought with the handle, for sure enough they put the handle straight into the lecturer's hand, to their own utter discomfiture and chagrin. It remains yet to be seen whether any of our Royal Astronomers will have courage enough to meet him in discussion, or whether they will quietly allow him to give the death-blow to the Newtonian theory, and make converts of our townspeople to his own Zetetic philosophy. If 'Parallax' be wrong, for Heaven's sake let some of our Greenwich stars twinkle at the Hall, and dazzle, confound, or eclipse altogether this wandering one, who is turning men, all over England, out of the Newtonian path. 'Parallax' is making his hearers disgusted with the Newtonian and every other theory, and turning them to a consideration of facts and first principles, from which they know not how to escape. Again we beg and trust that some of our Royal Observatory gentlemen will try to save us, and prevent anything like a Zetetic epidemic prevailing amongst us."--Greenwich Free Press, May 19th, 1862.

    ---

    "'PARALLAX' AT BRADFORD.--So long have astronomers averred the earth's rotundity and its motion round the sun, that when 'Parallax' was announced to lecture we went to see the man who had ventured to controvert facts so long settled by the most recherché students in celestial science. To our surprise every position taken seemed fortified with keen logical reasoning, and an easy explanation was given of many of the tests previously considered absolute proofs of the earth's rotundity. By many illustrations he disproved this rotundity, and astonished his audiences by showing how little there is to be relied on in what has been hitherto received as demonstration itself. 'Parallax' is unquestionably a very acute reasoner, a paragon of courtesy, good temper, and masterly skill in debate; and, by his frank and ingenuous manner, won largely on the convictions of his audience. Seldom have we seen an assembly so much absorbed in their subject; and the interest was maintained to the close. We feel it due to say that, if the data given are correct, there is no resisting the conclusions arrived at."--Bradford Advertiser, July 6th and 13th, 1867.

    ---

    "The lecturer invited discussion, and a warm controversy took place, but 'Parallax' stood his ground admirably. His delivery is free and unaffected, and the masterly style in which he handled his subject showed that he was a geometrician and mathematician of no ordinary merit."--Dewsbury Chronicle, August 5th, 1867.

The Greenwich Free Press article in particular is clearly hostile to the idea while admitting impotence. It'd be hard to argue they had a FE bias after reading that. Very impressive Thomas.
