I know the subject of the flat earth theory has been talked about many times on ATS, what I would like to bring to the topic is a new 12 video series
done by YouTube member markksargent
I think some off his videos bring some very good questions and points up.
To start this off take a look at his first video which is more of an introduction.
Guide to the FLAT EARTH
Summary from the video
An introductory guide to the Flat Earth movement,
starting with the Copernicus theory in 1514, false
confirmation in 1957, and the extraordinary lengths
that the world leaders have taken in order to keep
Now I am not saying the earth is flat, but what I will say is that the PTB, have lied so many times it is very hard to know what is true and what is
So now I try to just educate myself on as many theories as possible be it mainstream or not.
In his videos though he does seem to bring up some great points, for example if you take a look at part 7 he bring up some interesting points,
regarding the GPS system etc and if anyone is interested is worth looking into.
FLAT EARTH Clues Part 7 - Long Haul
Summary of the video
Part of a series on the clues that guide you to the
Flat Earth. This clue looks into a topic I only
glanced at in the original guide, which are
commercial flights in the Southern hemisphere, or in
the flat earth model, the land masses closest to the
outer ring. The flights are all wrong.
I would advise anyone which has an open mind to look at all the videos and form your own conclusions.
The most frustrating part for me, is that I don't have the means to actually check out any off these claims myself physically, I would love to goto
the south pole and see for myself, and also it would seem even if i did have the resources to do so, governments would block me to be able to explorer
this planet we live on.
Which then leaves one with the question why?

The continuing theory of a flat Earth in our present day is just ludicrous imo. The evidence for a BALL of dirt is more than overwhelming and anyone
who still believes otherwise should realise their stubborn ignorance, get out there, and explore the real world. Perhaps some research on
"circumnavigation" would help see sense.
When will the human race evolve beyond stoopid and stop thinking inside tiny little (not flat) boxes?
Space flight, orbital mechanics, observations of the revolution of every other planetary sphere in this solar system, AND of the Earth from space, and
PHYSICS itself, totally refute virtually ANY claim of a flat earth.
How one is wrong, does not change the degree to which one is wrong.
For you which find this topic interesting, Mark Sargent recently did an interview were he talks more about his theory and discusses his videos and
topics brought up in the videos in more detail with some new information. I believe the interview was streamed live on the 26th march 2015.
The earth is flat for some things.. Alot of things not so much..
See you have to be going around the speed of light for the earth to be flat.. Since not many things can go that fast the only thing that will ever be
able to see the earth is flat as far as we know is a photon.
And i did not post this for the reason for it to be debunked, I posted it because i found it interesting, Also I like to keep a very open mind
regarding all theories and ideas people have regarding all topic.
I want as much information as possible be it wrong or right.
Due to I can not test or see many things for myself all i have to go on is the information off others.
There is a significant difference between the discussion of theories which are as yet unproven, in terms of their viability and feasibility, and
discussing theories which have already been shown to be full of holes large enough to accommodate the passage of a carrier fleet.
This thread fits squarely into the latter of the two categories.
And as for the comment you made questioning how I come to the conclusions I have come to about this topic, without having been to space myself....
First, my observations of other planets in our solar system using telescopes, and through researching the fruits of works undertaken by observatories
around the world, show that there are no flat planets in our solar system, that all of the planetary bodies in our solar system are, for want of a
better word, spheroid in aspect. They rotate, presenting different faces to observers here on Earth, and at no point present an edge to our
perspective, nor to the perspective of any orbiter, lander, or probe ever launched.
Furthermore, the way light breaks across the face of the world when the sun rises, and the fact that at every point in time, dawn is breaking
somewhere on the planet, mean that the Earth MUST be spherical. If it were flat, then dawn would break, all over the world, at what would be
practically the same moment. As it is, the terminator moves across the planets surface at a steady pace (at the equator, this would be 1,038 mph). Put
another way, it is daytime here in Britain. It is currently night time in Australia. These facts are not conducive to the flat earth theory, but are,
none the less, facts. The theory is flawed in the extreme, and has been known to be for centuries.
Again, which forum this discussion is in, could not be less important. It does not make the theory any less bunkum to place it in the Skunkworks, nor
does it protect it from just and fair scrutiny.
think we are on similar youtube paths ...
i recently also went through a phase of watching these lunar wave vidz ... amongst other lunar anomoloies and conspiracies ....
at a point, it led me onto these flat earth vidz ... i dont personally believe the flat earth theory .. as of yet .. but ... some of the evidence
presented, which he uses to try strengthen his flat earth argument, but dont directly relate to it, are rather interesting ..
eg .. admiral byrd ... who himself apparently tried to promote his experience in a hollow earth .. leading to or adding to the hollow earth 'theory'
... but this guy uses his account ... to try promote his flat earth .... more so .. the stuff about nasa .. and this one same HD pic of the earth we
have been shown over and over past several years .... where are ALL the rest ... etc etc etc ....
definitely something is amiss .. just not certain what .. i guess thats the disinfo smoke and mirrors in full effect ...
i love all these videos .. cos theyre very thought provoking ...

OK first not trying to hide in the skunk works and all opinions are welcome.
But understand I am just presenting some information that I found interesting, which I have come accross on my very long path of research. I am not
saying the information i provided is right or even true.
What I am saying though it is another theory and another path that i found and find interesting when looking at our history and were we come from.
I will admit I have a bias, a little to main stream science, but this in not due to that I don't believe them, but more to the fact that of were it
comes from and how we are taught from the moment we go to school that this is it and this is fact and everything else is wrong.
IMO a truely open mind looks at everything, and I mean everything no matter what.
Is the earth flat? I don't know, is it round? maybe because that is what i have been taught and what the main stream tells me.
What I do know though is that the mainstream and information that has been spoon feed to me for the last 40 years has many pitfalls and many failing,
and only a fool would believe blindly everything what one is told.
So just to say again, i though this information i presented was interesting and thought others might as well, and I have personally reseached both
sides or the topic.
And anyone that has done that will also see that there is many questions and holes on both sides, not oneside can say 100% they have it tight.
Also niether can I because all my knowledge and information is purely based on what others have said and do.
