Anything can be right can be wrong.
That's why I don't treat science as a religion-like entity.

RE seems to become a place of fanatics of sect, not religion sect, but 'science sect'.

Some of them hate religions, yet their way of thinking n behavour is like religious zealots.

This was asked as a question.  What the fuck is the point of the Q&A section?

You really need to find some real purpose in life.

Yes, you do.  You will never realize how much you need to until you do it.

Yea simple instructions...People see Q&A, they ask questions.

Why are all these questions being removed from Q&A to General ?
Stick close , very close , to your P.C.and never go to sea
And you all may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Look out your window , see what you shall see
And you all may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Chorus:
Yes ! Never, never, never,  ever go to sea !

Some know that they cannot be wrong!
I don't profess to be correct.
I'm correct.

Though more seriously, the shape of the earth is enormously important for many people.
There are many whose tasks would be quite different on a flat earth or a Globe.

Oh my, one simple question and both sides get all kafuffled.
Pointing here and there, and not answering the question.

So far, John Davis is the only one who has.
Since I'm a REtard I'll change the question to what if they're wrong?

Paraphrasing JD, They are wrong and I move on.

My point being if all of a sudden there is absolute proof that the earth is a sphere,
That no one can deny (An impossibility BTW) nothing would change.

The more interesting philosophical question would be
What if FErs are right?


Show me a Flat Earth map that works.

We are right. However, something would change if we were wrong - we would move on if we are wrong.

Is there anything that would convince you tho?

My guess would be that it wouldn't matter, people would still believe in FE, 911, and God.  Proof only affects certain people

Perhaps a better question would be ask what it would take to prove them wrong.

Only some indisputable authority is able to make claims about absolute wrong vs right concerning the shape of earth and more.
I do not know such authority among earthlings.
I cannot convince others, because i possess the same human handicaps without absolute authority.

And it seems that greed, power and money is infiltrating ''scientific research'' more than ever before, so that we are further and further away from objective universally accepted ''scientific truths'' that does not seek to please anyone and has no other goal than to research, conduct, measure, conclude and repeat.

If one reads about the supposed ''lost / destroyed  technologies'' (from the highly technological advanced late sixties and early seventies concerning space exploration) that prevents NASA to go back to the moon on a short notice, i believe that i am dealing with scumbags of the highest degree that can claim whatever they want about earth in their hypothetical universe, but unless they show some signs of dignity, honesty and open minded debate i would trust a junkie to look after my wallet far more than NASA & Co. (A bottomless pit of taxpayer's money)
And without NASA most of the claims about earth, the moon and the universe would have to begin from almost scratch.
''but.....the Sovjets someone asks '' ?....the Sovjets were also lying scumbags about everything in their totalitarian system with ongoing murder, slaughter and exciling any protest or different opinion whatsoever.
Yeah those c...suckers told the truth about space, just as the good ole USA who murdered more inhabitants of foreign countries post WW2 than the regime of Hitler did during the second worldwar.
Couldn't it be somewhat plausible that such evil regimes lie about earth, it's shape and about their space achievements ?

Bottom line, i am willing to humble myself in front of everyone who is interrested when a real authority shows me my errors and invalid believes.
Not those old ones still in power (dependent on the same financial system that wants something in return......mostly the prefered and prefixed outcomes of any research)...they have lost any form of authority because of a failed true scientific system on each and every account.

What about geodetic scientists, who's profession is dedicated to studying the shape of the earth?

What about them ?
Are they studying each and every aspect of the shape of the earth ?
Or are they specialised in just one particular aspect of earth and it's supposed shape ?

The key is the scientific outlets !!! They are chosen because they know how to communicate with the general public....and they fall flat occasionally showing their total ignorance on certain aspects of their supposed expertise (Neil dGT not knowing and clearly mistaken the distance of the moon and sun in relation to earth and the visability of stars on the daylight surface of the moon)
The same applies to Michio kaku and many others.....

Could you please give me a name of an induvidual person that indeed understands most aspects that need to be understood to determine the true shape of earth, it's movement and relative position compared to the celestial bodies ?

'They'', ''Scientists'',''researchers'' won't cut it by a long shot.

Could you name a general accepted authority that has more knowledge that goes far and beyond a specialised fragment ?
Because most outlets seem to understand a certain fragment, but hardly know more than you and i about the broader picture.

Hire a surveyor or better yet,
Learn how to use a surveyors equipment and do it yourself.

It's what I wold do if I believed the world to be flat.
Oh, and I would also try and make a map that works.

I would think that they, like in pretty much any field of advanced study, would start with broad understanding of the size, shape and workings of the earth and then start focusing on specialties.  By the way, geodesy is only one of a number of branches of earth science, pretty much all of which relies on an accurate knowledge of the size and shape of the earth.

The key is the scientific outlets !!! They are chosen because they know how to communicate with the general public....and they fall flat occasionally showing their total ignorance on certain aspects of their supposed expertise (Neil dGT not knowing and clearly mistaken the distance of the moon and sun in relation to earth and the visability of stars on the daylight surface of the moon)
The same applies to Michio kaku and many others.....
The key to what?  Do you think that the primary goal of science is to educate the general public?  No, the primary goal of science is expand our understanding of the finer workings of things.  Research papers and scientific papers are not meant for the general public, they're meant for other scientists in that field.  When dealing with the general public, sometimes they have to dumb things down so much that things inevitably get lost in the translation.

Could you please give me a name of an induvidual person that indeed understands most aspects that need to be understood to determine the true shape of earth, it's movement and relative position compared to the celestial bodies ?
Probably not.  Why would you think that I should?

'They'', ''Scientists'',''researchers'' won't cut it by a long shot.
Why not?  Just because you don't understand what they're doing doesn't mean that they're wrong.

Could you name a general accepted authority that has more knowledge that goes far and beyond a specialised fragment ?
Because most outlets seem to understand a certain fragment, but hardly know more than you and i about the broader picture.
Have you tried your local university?  Science teachers, especially at the undergraduate level, usually need to have a broader understanding of things than the working specialists.  But you also have to understand that the broader you speak on a subject, the less precise the language gets.
