I have heard flat-earthers say this. How the hell do you ignore the notion of gravity exactly?

gravity means that what goes up must come down. people cannot walk upside down or sideways on a round earth any more than you could walk on the ceiling of your house.

Gravity means that everything is pulled towards to center of a mass.  The more massive an an object is, the more gravity.

Gravity pulls everything towards the center of a mass as the above poster states. There is no 'top' of the earth. This is why 'what goes up must come down' - because it is being pulled towards the earth. How can you refute this?

If you are stupid enough, you can refute anything.  Hence, toma.
