Why Do We Have To Prove The Earth Is Round?
« on: October 22, 2011, 12:21:54 PM »
The Round Earth Theory is commonly accepted as fact, so much that it is taught in elementary school and anyone who were  to argue this would be told they were wrong and would probably fail to graduate because of their disregard of gravity and physics. So then, why do we round Earthers have to constantly prove that the Earth is round to you? RET is accepted as fact, whereas FET is still a theory, so you should actually be presenting proof to us in order to have your theory presented as a fact. To be fair, we have had space trips, or at least have pretended to, so the only iron proof you could have to force FET to be believed as fact would be to raise money for some kind of satellite, or, at the very least, weather balloon, instead of blatantly disregarding our proof and factual evidence.

So, since suggesting you find indisputable evidence is obviously too much to ask, I want to hear scientific proof that the Earth is flat. If you would please list this proof (not guesswork and bendy light and dark matter, as those are theories and not factual evidence), maybe your theory will gain more respect.

This is the Flat Earth Society - our site, our ground. We don't go around inviting RE'ers to come here, be angry and argue. They do it on their own initiative.
In other words - you don't need to prove anything to us. You've come here because you wanted to (or because someone is forcing you, in which case you should contact the relevant authorities).

Good point. I do, however, wish to here all the evidence that has been assembled to prove the Earth flat

All the evidence for a flat Earth can be summed up as the following...

1) It looks flat
2) A guy with sketchy methods "proved" it 150 years and his words are equivalent to those of god
You, sir, can't comprehend the idea of bottoms.

It's pretty obnoxious of you to come in to a forum where we can discuss our flat earth beliefs with each other and suddenly demand that we cater to you and show you everything you want.

There's a FAQ and a search function. I know you're probably not going to use either of them (you'll gain much respect from everyone if you honestly do), but they both do sincerely come in very handy.

That's irrelevant to the point of the post.

A reality is a bit more scientific than a belief.

Clearly you aren't a scientist.
