Does Australia exist?

Please tell me that nobody thinks that Australia doesn't exist. That would be a insult to those who live down under.

What if you only think the earth is flat?  (which you do)

The evidence for Australia's existence is abundant.  You will find well over 20 million people who would testify to living there.  Many others have visited as tourists.  Australia was on the world map long before the Flat Earth Society existed.  Australia also has a total of 28,529 native species of plants and animals [1].  On the other hand, the Mojave desert is believed to have "between 1,750 and 2,000 species of plants." [2]  The Australian accent (speech) is very different from a Californian accent.

Yet, contrary to all evidence, some FEers will obstinately deny or doubt the existence of Australia.  Such FEers are obviously not embarrassed to make themselves look so stupid.  They are simply liars.

How many of those 20 million have you personally met?  Perhaps you are merely taking NASA's word as truth in that number?

Well, I think I live in Australia.
When I fly NW (roughly) I seem to end up in Brunei.
When I fly WNW (roughly) I seem to end up in Dubai.
When I fly ESE (roughly) I seem to end up in New Zealand.
From Melbourne sailing south I end up in a place the locals call Tasmania - mind you they think I just live on that big north island of Tasmania.
The northern tip of Cape York looks the right shape.
The very western bit (Steep Point) seems in the right place and travelling as far SW as possible I land on a corner with blustery winds and a lighthouse - probably Cape Leeuwin - it sure don't look like California!

The sun seems to do what I expect for Australia - rises in the SE and sets in the SW (in mid-summer).
At night the Southern Cross (I guess - it looks like the one in the books!) rotates about a point roughly 30° above the horizon!

That's enough for me yes, I think I live in Australia and it is in about the right place.

Do you believe it is impossible to know with reasonable certainty that those 20+ million people exist?  Do you believe that it is impossible to know anything that one has not personally observed or experienced with any reasonable certainty at all?

Also: Do you get paid to ask stupid questions with almost every single post you make?  Are you are a paid troll?  Does your 'infinite skull' avatar mean you are infinitely brain-dead?  Does the 'artificial intelligence' you claim to have mean you have fake/phony (i.e. zero) intelligence since 'artificial' can mean fake/phony?  It certainly looks to be that way.

We had a visit from a distant cousin from Australia recently. He seemed he was certain there is a place called Australia and that was where he lived. Maybe I am a bit naive, but I just took his word for it.

His home address is in Sydney. I sent him a Christmas Card and he got it. He sent one to me and I got it.

I live in Australia,  and I'm not sure it exists,  perhaps you could help out and bugger off to the  bottleshop and get another slab of VB while I think about it some more.

Thus proving a separate language and culture exists,  which may or may not be Australia.   

I was going to link to Austen Tayshus,  but I suspect the culture shock might be too much,  you can google it if you are interested.

No it does not. I know this because I have not personally verified it myself, and as we all know this is the only way to know things.
Also, the Flat Earth Maps depict Australia much bigger than what google says it to be. This discrepancy cries Conspiracy, planted by Google under the control of the NASA. Because we all know NASA controls all information around the world.

So I have just proven that Australia does not exist!

/s in case it was not obvious enough

I suspected as much,  and now that it's proven,  I can save a fortune in taxes.   If I can prove South Africa doesn't exist,  you might save yourself a quid or two as well...  :)

Your world kinda sucks if you only believe in what you have personally seen.
For example, I could doubt the existence of Copenhagen, the Confederacy, Confucius and Corundum, as I have never personally verified their existence.
However, the existence of these four is not in any doubt, at least in my mind, as I do believe other people, if what they claim is plausible.
I fail to see how the existence of a country that can be visited could ever be called into question.

No, because the existence of leprechauns is illogical.
They haven't been biologically described, or sighted with any degree of certainty by anyone with repute.
If one is found, categorised, and displays properties pertaining to leprechauns, i.e. granting three wishes and having a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, then sure, I will then believe in leprechauns.
