Really . Funny how Google  maps since they up dated the satalite images in my area ,have creeks & some roads running through houses . Bridges in the wrong place . It isn't possible. Liar!!!!!!

An error on a map affects the shape of the Earth?

Sorry, charles... this sounds like voodoo, where sticking a pin in a replica of someone is supposed to cause them harm. Do you believe this?
Voodoo lol no thats old school know they just infect you with a nasty hard to get rid of flew bug . The only zombies I know of ,are crack meth heads & people who think they landen a man on the moon. The fact you spherical spinners , base so much of your fact on satalites proving the  earth to be spherical.  Its worthy of mention , that the maps & supposed satalite photos are  way out of wack .but the gps is still working fine . So how can that be?

All that proves is that Goofle needs to fire whoever stitched those photos together.  Also, that doesn't explain how we can use satellites for navigation and communication if they don't exist.

would it be more honest to contemplate all the options ? and not to say the earth is round just because you want it to be round.

Why would we "want" the Earth to be round (spherical, actually) if it weren't? We say the Earth is spherical because it is spherical.

Being "old school" means it's wrong? Would you remind anyone citing Mr. Rowbotham of this, please.

I didn't know that Influenza ("Flu") was a recent invention. All those people that died of it 100 and more years ago may be surprised to hear that.

How many crack and meth users do you hang around with? Do you use the, uh, "reality supplements" they enjoy, yourself? If so, you write quite well, considering.

How can that be? Completely different technologies, perhaps? GPS doesn't rely on imagery, for instance. How many satellite photos are "way out of wack"? How far "out of wack" is "way out of wack", and how many photos are "out of wack" at all? Considering how many there are, it's likely a few might be. Sucks when it affects you; complain to Google.

The Coriolis also effects other things like bullets.  Snipers have to account for it when shooting far away targets to the east or west of them.

Think about the atmosphere above the equator. All of that air, moving along with the equator at ~1000mph. Now think about the air above the stretch of land at the 20 degree latitude line North and South, moving at a slower speeds. Now try to think of which way the air will tend to spin in the northern and southern hemisphere because of these different speeds.

How about this flat earthers, the fact that people in international space station lives as if they are in zero gravity. This is one example:

" class="bbc_link" target="_blank">

It is not done by strings and harnesses, since you cannot make water float using wires.
It is not done by zero-G experience aircraft, because it can only simulates zero-G for 25-30 seconds, and the video lasts for 1 minute and 45 seconds.

The fact that ISS astronauts experience zero gravity all the time can only be explained by a round earth model. I would love to elaborate further if asked.

Bzzzt..   wrong.    Look at a weather chart,  which way do the winds around a high pressure regions spin?   In Australia it's  anti-clockwise around high pressure systems,  clockwise around low pressure systems,   and in the Northern hemisphere, its the opposite way around.   Look up a few weather charts with synoptic and wind directions.

Please elaborate on these multitude of causes for it.  Please show where the experiments done by scientists didn't have controls in place to limit outside influences.  Oh thats right you guys don't understand experimental controls, or experiments for that matter.

Sure they do, its called research.  They want to find out how things work.  You need to know how things work in order to make any money on new technologies also.  I will give you a hint, the vast majority of scientists are not employed by the government. 
So what is their common agenda?
Let's cut out the hand waving and get down to actual responses that add to a conversation.  You do not have to agree with me, but do not make a claim that you do not 1. understand and 2. cannot provide at least some evidence for that claim.  If you had done anything like scientific research, you would understand the absurdity of that comment.
