There is no proof for a round earth or flat earth. Only evidence.
Awesome. Way to dodge a question. That pretty much wraps it up - I'm right, you can't admit it and this thread has no purpose.

 It has a purpose, it serves as a venue to disscuss Flat earth video games.
Vongeo is a wanker, he wears a wanker hat; he always smells like urine and he thinks the Earth is flat.

No longer is this sentence is cut in half. Jekra!

Of which the latter is somewhat lacking, a lot.

You haven't even stated anything. How can you be right? All you have been doing is derailing the thread. The tactic of you just saying "Oh I'm right, you're wrong" without anything else to add isn't working. The thread's purpose was already stated to you.
I saw a slight haze in the hotel bathroom this morning after I took a shower, have I discovered a new planet?

The bloody flight simulator, you knob. I said it was accurate and you said it isn't without backing up your statement at all. You really piss me off sometimes. You never get to the question at hand at all. You're almost as bad as Levee. Let me try again:

Why, in your mind, is flight simulator not accurate?

Because it assumes a round earth.

And what does that say of it's accuracy? I know for a fact that distances, timings, speed and placements are all correct to things that I have seen and flown in my lifetime. People all over the world are also using FSX and nobody has gone "Wait, but that flight takes 3 times longer at the speed I flew". It IS accurate. You need a better excuse than the assumption if an RE. If it assumed a [proper] FE then it would be inaccurate. FS9 used a flat earth but had to warp what you saw in order to get things to appear correctly (including magnetic field lines).

Try harder.

It's accuracy proves nothing. I also doubt you've compared any of real life experiences to the game. Also, simulations are not bound by physical laws of the universe.

It's accuracy proves everything. Also:

I may not have flown every route or measured all distances, but I haven't seen any inaccuracies yet.

It may not be bound by the physical laws of the universe, but does that mean FSX doesn't follow them? No. It clearly does.

Surely this is proof that we so far do not have the technology to create a fully 3-d world. Luckily the universe has the technology to create fully 3-d objects, like planets and stars.

Now I have, and your point is totally valid. While it has been a long time since I have played a FS game, I know for a fact that they are used in training because of the almost spot on accuracy of the simulation. Then I realized that I have played the game Spore and was gonna bring that up, but then noticed that it was brought up, but those planets are round and very accurately modeled.

Runescape is not set on Earth, Gielinor may very well be flat, but as FE'ers like to point out, Earth is different.

Ok so you have no evidence. Another win for FES!

I went atop the volcano of Karamja and looked out to a flat horizon with no curvature. In fact, from everywhere I change camera views in Runescape I see a flat world. It appears flat and the burden of proof is on you to prove otherwise.

I haven't said Gielinor isn't depicted as a flat world, I have said that it is not the same as Earth. Every reference to the world as a whole is "Gielinor", and never "Earth".

An example, straight from Guthix, the main deity of that world:

Quote
This realms name is in truth Gielinor, yet is called RuneScape in the common tongue by it's inhabitants. Each kingdom hath its' own name such as Misthalin, Asgarnia, and so forth.
I also feel obliged to point out that the races thou hast mentioned are all currently in residence upon this realm, along with many more lesser known species such as the Skavid...

This thread is full of fail.

firstly, Zelda is a stylized game, it doesn't try to be realistic, notice how the water and fire are highly stylized. and if I remember correctly, when you sail to one end, you reach the other, so this world would be an infinite plane loop. Secondly, you guys are mad tripping. I seriously doubt that the Japenese people who made the game have heard of you guys. you guys are a teeny tiny niche of society, and if they have heard of you, I doubt any of the production team decided to make the world flat for your cause. You guys are majorly tripping. Some people might believe that the moon is evil, does that mean that Majora's mask was for the lunatic clan? No
also, clearly the game area isn't very big, in one mile it would only drop 8inches. and the game is hardly more than 5 miles long, if that. Furthermore, I believe in the official artwork there was a pic showing a globular world.

TL;DR

In the real world, they don't know you, they don't like you, they don't love you or your cause. Pretending otherwise is ridiculous. In the end you will have not impact mainstream society in the least bit, enjoy your fail.

which part? if you have played the game, you no this is true.
or is it the part about noone knowing about you, or being impacted by you.

did you think you guys were big shiz? no Co$ pulls way more members, money, and press than you guys ever will, and so far I see no dianetics games

Lurk moar please... on wikipedia you guys have 8 pop culture references, most of which you guys are being held synonymous with idiots. Scientology has a whole artical about them in pop culture. they made it into a South Park episode. They also got meme status. you guys however have less than a thousand members, the burden of proof is on you. you are the one that is saying that the production team of Zelda are secretly FES, but have not shown one iota of evidence. all you've shown is that the made a flat earth in a highly stylized game. wow
