Evidence

I would like to know why every piece of evidence for a round earth is just brushed aside as fake and wrong and you pick that bits that support your idea. Iv been on planes and seen the curvature of the earth, how can you explain that. And if the earth is not round how do satellites work, and don't say cell phone towers because you can use a satnav where there is no phone signal

You can't see curvature from less than 60,000 ft. in the air. The commercial planes I would imagine you flew in only fly 30,000 - 35,000 ft.. You wouldn't be able to see the curvature.

First if all you can see curvature from 30,000 feet, secondly how do you know you can only see it from 60,000 feet if you say it isn't there. Also how do you explain gravity if the earth isn't round, but there is weaker gravity on the top of mountains and lower air pressure the higher up you go. If it was just the flat earth accelerating at 9.81 ms^-2 then the pressure would be the same higher up

Commercial planes regularly top 40,000ft, but that is moot.

I think he believes in a RE man, just saying that you cannot see significant curvature at commercial plane altitudes.
Aether is the  characteristic of action or inaction of charged  & noncharged particals.

1) Incorrect.
2) Incorrect.
3) As far as I'm concerned gravity doesn't exist.
4) You just answered your own question.
5) Not all FEers subscribe to UA.

Lower air pressure and also weaker gravity on the top of mountains. It simply cannot be just air pressure being your gravity can it, It has to be this unknown gravity that perfectly emulates air pressure.

Do people not see this, or just refuse to accept this simple explanation?

Scepti, Air pressure does not account for the observable effects of gravity. For one, gravity is responsible for air pressure even being a thing.

Don't let Scepti get into his air pressure thing here. There's a thread for that: http://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php/topic,59595.120/topicseen.html#.UhCI0pK1Exg
