What I would like to ask you is why do you put so much faith in to a half baked youtube video,and tell any detractors that they haven't done there research,and yet you refuse to accept the couple of thousand years worth of research that clearly shows the earth to be a sphere,what in your opinion is the big kicker that proves your point?
I'm not trying to dis you,I just want to find out your mind set, which piece of evidence is the deal maker ?

I find flaws with the globe model what we are taught,........ and what can be observed regarding the globe were told we live on do not add up and there are many contradictions,
There are no inconsistencies about the ISS, just some people's poor understanding of physics, and how things actually work.

Oh and also she just floats up,

Thanks for sharing the vids and putting your thoughts across. It's the first time I've took any interest in the flat earth theory as I've always thought it was a load of rubbish. But... saying that, I found a lot of the points raised in the videos very interesting.
So anyway, let's say you're right about this and the earth is actually flat.
The one big question that jumps out at me about this whole theory is... if it's true, then why the big cover up? What's the benefit? And who would benefit from it? Why go to these extreme lengths, for all this time, and continue to lie about a major factor of mankind's origins and existence?
Just to add as well, what if it was a prison, what better way to hide it, then to tell everyone inside that you live on a ball and there is no walls!
Have you ever read of Plato's Cave? It was a thought experiment by Plato that asked if we live in the world we perceive or whether we see an illusion that's projected in front of us? He imagined 'prisoners' chained before a cave wall that had shadows of the world projected against it by a fire and being behind the chained prisoners (us). I think you'll like it.
We can never entirely be certain that this world is as real as we think it is. It could be simulation, holographic or something stranger than we can imagine.
Nevertheless, I think the work of astrophysicists and the engineers who build their various telescopes (Hubble etc) provides evidence, at least, that the universe is very old and profoundly huge. That these same men and women look outward from various points on Earth confirms, for me, that we are currently on a spherical world in a dauntingly large universe. Of course, the planets and moons we can see are also spherical which makes ours being spherical very ordinary in the scheme of things.
But we aren't being lied to.
It's embarrassing that someone could believe such nonsense.
You are trying to make out that established, researched scientific fact is wrong, and in doing so are contributing to making the world dumber.
