To anyone that believes the FE model, what convinced you it is correct?

Define "FE model:" do you mean the standardly accepted Mono-Pole Model? I'm presuming you just mean that we accept the Earth as being flat instead of round?

Honestly, a good deal of it is trusting my gut. I was raised religiously, trusted my gut on that one, and... I don't believe in any sort of higher powers, supernatural spooks or other ghosties. I was raised to believe that the Earth is round like any other kid, trusted my gut on that one, and... there are some very, very interesting things, odd discrepancies and information that really makes you think, to consider.

It makes sense to me.

Is it that you thought the earth was shaped just like the North Polar Azimuthal Equidistant Projection ?
(The one showing Antarctica as the ice ring.)
Some FE's like this one !

Or did you think the earth was shaped just like the Bipolar Projection ?
(The one showing no ice ring but showing Antarctica as a continent. )

Which one of the above did you think was a map of the flat earth and that convinced  you the earth was flat ?
Or was it some other map or some other reason that convinced you that the flat earth model  is correct ?

My early school days were much like yours and I just accepted the fact that the earth is round , or was in the shape of the globe.
But when I studied various subjects in college I was more convinced of it.
But when I started working in military service and civilian jobs I observed so many things but then I knew for certain that the earth was shaped like a globe and flat earth certainly didn't make any sense at all.
My apologies , but we people who work in the real world wonder why on earth (no pun intended....LOL) would even think the earth was a flat disc ?

If there is, you should go read it.

Moose antlers have two distinct and useful purposes. First, as a means to fend off interloping moose during mating season. Secondly, the lateral shape and width make it impossible for a moose to insert it’s head into his anus or one belonging to another moose for that matter. Therefore a moose’s head can neither be put in nor be in a butt.

Really?
  • What about showing these "vids with water behind the boat that is supposedly partially behind the curve"? How can we comment on what we haven't seen?

  • What is hiding the ships below?
    Quote from: Andy Hall
    CivilWarTalk, The Naval War, "Hull Down"
    If you read much naval history or fiction, especially that takes place in the age of sail, you'll come across the term that another vessel is "hull down." This simply means that the vessel being described is far enough away that the curvature of the earth makes it impossible to see the entire ship above the horizon. If a ship is "hull down," only its masts and maybe a funnel is visible above the horizon; the rest is hidden below (i.e., beyond) the horizon.

    The distance to the horizon depends on the height of the observer, but it's surprisingly short. If you're standing right at the water's edge, with your eye at 5 feet (1.5m) above sea level, the horizon is only about 3 statue miles away, or 2.6 nautical miles (4.8km). At a height of 20 feet (6.1m), about the elevation from which the photos below were taken, the horizon is only about 5.2nm (9.6km) away. At that distance, you could (theoretically) see right to the edge of the other vessel where the hull meets the water. At longer distances, less and less of the hull of the other vessel is visible, until the hull cannot be seen at all. The other vessel is then said to be "hull down."
    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
    << See the site at CivilWarTalk, The Naval War, "Hull Down" for details of exact where the photos were taken from and the locations of the ships. >>
    So here, then, are the ships that could be seen, shot from an elevation of about 20 feet (6.1m) above sea level, and their calculated distances in nautical miles. I haven't changed the images except to adjust the brightness and contrast levels to reduce the effects of a small amount of residual haze in the atmosphere. Note how the farther ships are indeed partially or fully "hull down" from the point of view of the observer on shore:





    What's hiding the farther ships? And is this ship sinking or . . . . .

I was in involved in a horrendous yachting accident, where I received a brutal brain injury.  After that, everything started to look a bit flat.  I watched a few youtube videos, and quickly became a flat earther.

Its funny how the shoddy "proofs" are good enough for you (faded) but when numbers and evidnec comes into play you can brush it away with a "well who really knows".
