I do not disregard everything science has shown us for centuries.
As to the pictures and the testimony of those who claim to have been into space then I can choose to believe these things without question or to take them as things that I cannot verify to be true.
Sometimes people tell lies, sometimes they make things up.
I reserve my right to remain open minded until shown irrefutable evidence.
So, when - at 28.55 in the second video, the guy talks about the flat earth, and how the UN logo mimicks the idea, and then goes on to state at 30.16 that the UN prevents people from going to Antarctica (they don't) to stop them from figuring out the earth is flat (because, according to what he's saying, Antarctica doesn't exist) - or when he goes on to discuss aircraft routing etc - he's not discussing the earth being flat?
The Antarctic Treaty was signed in Washington on 1 December 1959 by the twelve countries whose scientists had been active in and around Antarctica during the International Geophysical Year (IGY) of 1957-58. It entered into force in 1961 and has since been acceded to by many other nations. The total number of Parties to the Treaty is now 52.
You don't have to be taught to see the sun rise and set, observe the moon and stars at different times of the year and watch a boat disappear over the horizon from the bottom first to understand that the earth is curved. Its not rocket science to figure out that planes fly on certain routes where possible so they can be overland or near to land case of emergencies. You don't have to be taught that the higher you go, the more you can see, because you are raising yourself above the level of the surrounding area, and that if the earth was flat that on a clear day with a powerful telescope set line level on the top of Snowdon I'd be able to see New York City as its the highest point on the west coast of the UK before the Atlantic.

For example, just to touch on one of your points, in the comment above, if your flying at 10Km up and the earth is curved as they lead us to believe, when you look out of the plane window when crusing, the horizon, should not be at eye level, it is impossible on a globe planet based on the information we are told regarding the globe we live on.
The horizion should be below us.
but for some reason people dont seem to know that or want to believe it.

Actually, there are many non-cgi "official" pictures of earth from space. Any google search will bring them up.

This thread is not about the earth being flat, you would know that if you had watched the videos i posted.
What people believe is there beliefs not mine and I am not trying to change them, like other in this thread.
i am just pointing out and presenting information that questions what we are told is true and fact
Please show me some, there is only 1 offical picture released by NASA of the earth from space, which is claimed, to have come from the Apollo 17 mission.
This view of the rising Earth greeted the Apollo 8 astronauts as they came from behind the moon after the lunar orbit insertion burn. The photo is displayed here in its original orientation, though it is more commonly viewed with the lunar surface at the bottom of the photo. Earth is about five degrees left of the horizon in the photo. The unnamed surface features on the left are near the eastern limb of the moon as viewed from Earth. The lunar horizon is approximately 780 kilometers from the spacecraft. The height of the photographed area at the lunar horizon is about 175 kilometers.
You've completely discounted all our members who CANNOT watch the video...therefore, without even a basic explanation...you've not allowed them to participate.
With just a year of so investigative evidence hunting...against leaving out all those members who CANNOT watch these...and your refusal to at least EXPLAIN them to those members...I'M OUT.
Here is another short video from a user that I think does a very good job explaining this using 3D modelling.
