I believe in a Round Earth prove me wrong

I have three facts that completely disprove your "Flat Earth" theory.

1. When it is daylight in the U.S. it is night time in China. If the earth was flat then the sun would shine over every country at the same time, and would set at the same time. So can someone explain how the sun can be high at noon in the U.S. and not even visible in China at the same time.

2. People have been to the southpole. According to the "FES" a round Earth's south pole is basically the perimeter of the Flat Earth model. So whats at the edge? You claim the Earth is moving upward constantly at 9.8 mps, then if someone fell off they would drop off the "face" of Earth. This has NEVER happened in History. Oh and whats on the other side of the Earth for that matter? Someone expain the edge of Earth to me?

3. Satellites have been sent into orbit around the Earth (and like the sun are not visible by everyone on Earth at one time) and have taken pictures of the Earth's surface clearly depicting only portions of your Fleat Earth "map". So where is the rest of the Earth?

If your so dedicated to this idea then these questions will be easy to answer. And no one please answer with some ridiculous conspiracy theory answer, the media rarely misses something.

ONE MORE THING! Is the sun does rotate around the Earth according to your theories, then wouldn't the edge of the earth be more close then any other area?, then how come it is surrounded by ice? Oh i don't know if your guys know this because obviously your all a little crazy, but ice melts when it gets hot...  :o

The sun is never over those countries at the same time. The sun is very small and close to the earth. Its light is limited to a circle of sun-light which shines upon a section of the earth. When the sun passes over any one location it will set into the horizon and night will fall.

What exists beyond the uncharted Antarctic tundras is unknown to present human knowledge. Some believe that if one could venture far enough into the snowy tundras you'd come upon a wall of ice, the interior of a celestial dome, or an edge to the earth which breaks off into space. Others believe that there is no edge to the earth and that the Antarctic tundras stretch outwards into infinity.

3. Satellites have been sent into orbit around the Earth.

Do you have evidence that satellites exist?

Yes i have evidence i can look up into the sky at night with my telescope and i have seen them orbiting

How can you tell that they are orbiting a round earth and not merely spinning around the northern center of a flat one?

Well if they were orbiting around the center of a flat one they would fall to earth fairly quickly since earth is constantly moving upward

The sun, moon, and stars can stay suspended above the surface of the earth just fine.

I answered them just fine. What exists beyond our local area is unknown to present human knowledge.

Once again i hace seen the satellites in orbit myself, so they do exsist.

What are the sun and moon and stars being suspended by that keeps them from crashing into the earth?

AND? when looking at other planets through a telescope you can clearly see two different images, that can show a round planet? What makes ours so different

So you have yet to say anything to prove me wrong? i have plenty of proof to back up my ideas up, and yet all you are saying is "nay this is what is happening prove me wrong?" and i do and you stop talking

I am a 19 year old college student, and you look to be in your mid 50s and you cant even give me an ounce of proof of your ridiculous theories, maybe you should go back to school because obviously you have to be he least educated human being i have ever met. My ancestor happens to be Galileo and when you die i want you to look him in the eye and apoligize for being such an idiot and tell him he was write and kiss his feet you ludacris, ignorant, arrogent, cantankerous, morose, old man... you are so sad. so sad and pathetic

Finally Tom stopped saying that what you see is a "stratellite", which can be a balloon carrying scientific equipment or a plane designed to fly on solar energy and carry equipment at very high altitudes.

Since you have seen them, you can tell us if the satellites move very large distances in a few minutes, something a balloon or a solar powered plane just cannot do.

Ugh. This belongs in Angry Ranting, but you're irritating me so much I'm just going to lock it. Have a nice day.

Oh, and if you post any more stupid threads in the debate forums without reading the FAQ, I'm going to ban you.
I'm going to side with the white supremacists.
