Flat Earth video series
« on: February 18, 2018, 08:17:10 AM »
Hey guys I'm new here and here for a good reason. I am trying to make a video series debunking flat earth. I'm sure you're all quite confident I won't be able to do it, but anyway the reason I'm here is because so often members on both sides of the debate are so engaged in finger pointing and throwing insults that there is very little I can analyse of either side's arguments. I promise my video is going to be as objective as possible. There will be no mockery whatsoever of flat Earth theorists, just genuine, academic and educated discussion.

Therefore I would like to enlist your help in providing me with some concrete examples of why you believe the Earth is flat. I've heard many explanations, but here I want to hear concrete and concise explanations that fit the following criteria:

  • No photographic evidence: since flat Earthers claim that globe Earth photos are CGI, the same standard applies to FE theorists.
  • No evidence from the Bible: with all due respect to religion, the last thing I want is personal attack and to be honest citing the Bible will not benefit the flat Earth cause at all.
  • Holistic consideration: very often flat Earth explanations are good for explaining one phenomenon but contradict with other FE theories, so if you want to sound persuasive you need to give evidence that is able to address natural phenomena in their entirety.
  • Make sure you don't misread science: please confirm whether what you state is what modern science believes in before you start accusing them of fake science.

In the future I might also ask in more detail how you would respond to some of my explanations. Thanks in advance for whoever responds, I really appreciate your help in this project! Ultimately, I hope that FE and globe Earthers can finally come hand in hand and start realising that we share this planet no matter what its shape and that's all we need to know to be friends :)

You won't get many responses matching those criteria.

Most flat earth theory is based on looking out of the window.

Amen.
I tried so hard, and got so far. But in the end, I fell off the edge. I had to fall, to lose it all, but in the end, I still fell of the edge.

Amen.
The fear of photography is a proper remnant of an bygone era.
