Any examples from the past hundred years or so, perhaps?
Are you suggesting that the truth has an expiry date? It doesn't.
Any world record holder can tell you that it some truths can and do have expiration dates.

If Mark runs a mile in 3 minutes 45 seconds today, and if Steve runs a mile in 3 minutes 44 seconds tomorrow, Mark's score is still true.

Less cherry-picking of the posts, more facts?
“The Earth looks flat, therefore it is” FEers wisdom.

Fixed that for you.
As if a girl could run faster... ;D

This would not change any universal truths though. Damn REers with their bendy truth theories.

If you mean Tom Bishop, then he runs pretty quickly when his trolling and circular reasoning comes under fire.

Don't be sexist. The mods have serious issues with discrimination.
How many sprinting world records are held by women? Do the Olympics, etc. discriminate or is it that women being, on average, slower than men is indisputable? How is this discrimination?

Is there anything in life more annoying than the kind of rubbish you have just spouted? If mods want to get annoyed, do they need you to correct me first? Are you some kind of pre-mod correctional officer?

Or are you the type of weirdo who gets offended for other people? In which case:
Don't be sexist. The mods have serious issues with discrimination.
"Don't laugh at girls, I know a girl. Honest I do..."
Fixed.

NASA is referenced pretty much constantly, and to support the arguments of both sides.
I must have missed all of the NASA photos and footage showing the flat earth in all its glory. Perhaps you'd be so kind as to provide a link.

All photos and videos from NASA that show that the earth is round are claimed to have been faked to support THE CONSPIRACY.
Still waiting for NASA proof of a flat earth.

Let what go? You keep responding to this as if I disagreed with you somewhere along the way.

This is a dome.  It looks pretty flat.  It even fooled Roundy.

Its not a dome. Its two rectangles of pixels. It is nothing like a dome. Its a rectangle of dark blue pixels on the bottom. Some light blue ones on the top. Your computer has approximated the shape you originally specified, based on its programming. Once you zoomed in, it no longer was a dome. The computer approximated and redrew a shape.  Earth is not re-approximated. There is no processing that happens as you get closer to it. No lack of information or resolution due to hardware limitations. The earth is flat, and zoom out and it stays looking flat. Looking at earth is not like looking at computer models. Earth isn't pixelated. Its not redrawn by a processor and graphics card as you change altitude. It wasn't programmed by a man.

this is pure denial.if you subscribe to FET or not its easy to imagine that a giant sphere would appear flat. a smooth surface appears flat, but if you were shrunk to the size of an atom you would be stood amung hills and mountains

Why should the computer approximate and redraw anything?  What makes you think a bunch of programmers are going to make a computer suddenly start using a different set of code just because you zoom into a sphere?  At what point does my dome cease to be curved?  No one models a floor with a sphere, it takes too many unnecessary polygons.  It's stupid to need to make the computer do anything fancy for a scene no one makes.

My machine performed just as slowly rendering that image as it did rendering the whole sphere.  I'm not sure what you mean by hardware limitations.

Where did I suggest you are a mod?
Also, you still didn't back up or retract your accusations of sexism & discrimination. Do the mods have no problems with libel?

The mods have no problems with libel, nor sexism/discrimination. The only thing you can't do is use a single derogatory word referring to dark-skinned people.

Nor may you refer to a particularly offensive citrus fruit. So frowned upon is naming those yellow blighters, the forum is hard coded to prevent you doing so. Daniel has a few peculiarities. Ni**ers and lem*ns upset him. Just those two things. Everything else is fine.

Yes they gave their name. My intent wasn't to complain about any particular mods, though, only to highlight the fact that  the 'n' word isn't the only insult they take offense to.
