Since scientific proof isn’t something that FEarthers rely on, I’m gonna go ahead and use the same pseudo logical reasoning they love.

Iran is a muslim fundamentalist country. Iranian people have more faith in the coran than any they have in any other book.
Now the Coran argues those who doubt his power by saying: How I managed to flatten the earth.
Meaning how powerful was he by flattening the earth.

Over centuries, the explanation to this verse was as simple as it is written.
God is powerful, He flattened the earth.
And over those centuries claiming that verses had other meanings, was complete heresy and punished by death (awful death) since it was Allah’s word and such powerful entities don’t use metaphors.
Then by the arrival of science, fundamentalists were facing some serious threat and they began to loosen up by inventing some fucked up metaphorical meanings to the Coran.

The educational system in Iran teaches kids that the earth is round and that the verse meant that how Allah is such powerful that made the illusion to humans that the earth is flat when in fact it  is round.

In 2009, with the help of Russia, Iran was able to launch its first satellite named Omid (Hope in Persian) from its homeland.
Omid is a telecommunication satellite (at least as they claim) and is orbiting around the earth with the following coordinates:
Inclination   55.5°
Apoapsis   383.8 km
Periapsis   252.7 km
Orbital period   90.7 min

The following day of its launch the NASA, reluctantly, confirmed the mission’s success and a storm raged between American anlysists over the seriousness of this potential threat.

Don’t you think that the USA’s enemy would take pictures proving that the earth is flat and that Allah’s word was literally right and shove it up the Occident’s ass other than spending shit loads of money maintaining a ridiculous 27 kilograms cube in outer space?

The conspiracy consist not just the US government.  Their motives also likely don't coincide with the government as they are siphoning money from them.

Yet nobody has shown the feasability of a conspiracy. (See my other topics for what I mean)

the feasablity is evidentual through observation, the goverment does't care about you, indeed no one really care abouts you, everyone is self interested in nature, we only act like we're not for the sake of social benefits. Evidence suggests primate capacity to lie is an evolutionary trait. So therefore a conspiracy on a global level, that siphones money from say, NASA, is indeed logical too. I think the average man needs to open their eyes to the truth, both about the society of individules in which we live in, and the nature of the conspiracy we're talking about.

Globularism was believed by the vast majority of uneducated serfs during the thousands of years in which humans forgot the wise teachings of Thales and Anaximenes. In fact, Zetetic science is a modern discipline, it is cutting-edge and is replacing the outdated globularist fantasies. The modern Flat Earth theory has been growing since the mid-1800s when Dr Samuel Rowbotham published the most revolutionary scientific text in history. Get your facts straight - you are the one with the outdated beliefs.

Hyperbole much?

This borders on the time cube guy:
Gene Ray, the wisest human.

How was that book the most revolutionary text in history, if not many people have heard or been inspired by it to change their line of thought. I'm pretty sure Einsteins work was much more revolutionary. L Ron Hubbards work is more revolutionary.

It doesn't matter how many people read a document.

It matters if the document is correct.

Of course it matters.  A document can't change the world if nobody reads it.

It matters if the document is correct.

Too bad that ENaG has too many factual errors to be taken seriously.

So George Boole's work inventing Boolean Logic, which we are all using on this forum, isn't revolutionary... because it only became popular many years after his death?

many of us here have read ENaG.

Boolean Logic (Boolean Algebra) had mathematical applications long before computer science was invented.

many of us here have read ENaG.

Then you should be well aware of many of the factual errors that Rowbotham made in the book.
