Unfortunatley you seem to have the wrong idea - we flat earthers don't do answering questions, that would make us part of the conspiracy.
I believe the earth is flat because I have a brain the size of a peanut.

Annoyingly, google earth actually is pictures from satellites stuck on a digital ball. But then the question is "if satellites dont exist, how are the pictures taken?
Sorry, the post at the top of the page was just me arguing an unsatisfactory answer. this is the original question.

You can see that the earth is round when you look out to sea. End of story really.

2 weeks ago in sunday school we looked on Google Earth (if you dont know what that is then look for it!!) I found it very confusing how can they make it round?? It looks so real but it's NOT TRUE IT CANT BE!!!

It came because we were talking about the earth and it seems that the other kids all think it is a sphere??? and I said it was flat and I tried to find in the bible where my mom had showed me where it says it's flat but couldn't find it :-[ and then they took me to the computers and showed me Google Earth.

What do yo think? I still think it is flat (there's no ice walls in google earth, it's stupid(

Troll? If you honestly believe the bible word for word you are stupid.

I don't take fiction seriously. If I did I would be more likely to believe in Harry Potter than Jesus Christ.

Besides, wouldn't it be easier to not make Google Earth than make it and waste the money on plane fuel and shit?
lol, +1.

Yes, of course. Using planes to take pictures of nearly all land on earth would be extremely impractical.

Here's an interesting story that may raise some more interesting questions about Google's involvement in the conspiracy: http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20080908-new-satellite-to-give-google-maps-unprecedented-resolution.html

Quote
Google has taken the war over exclusive web content into space. Not directly, of course—the satellite that was recently launched into space on a rocket bearing the Google logo was the result of a joint venture between a commercial satellite imaging provider and the department of defense. In return for undisclosed terms, Google got two considerations: its logo on the side of the launch vehicle, and exclusive use of the mapping images that the satellite produces.
Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

Besides, perhaps FET is a conspiracy too.

Okay. The further out pictures on google earth are taken from satellites. Once you get to a certain zoom, they become images taken from planes, thus you can see a lot of stuff in high detail. A lot of people have been claiming it to be impractical, but in many areas on Google Earth, only a certain zoom can be achieved as they didn't feel the need to take such detailed pictures in these areas.

That is true and it is why clouds are there in the satelite photos but not the plane photos because the planes fly below the clouds  :)

although... that backs up RE  :-\ ummm its still flat
