Isn't the flat earth map the same as the U.N logo

I came across a fellow named.jeranism on YouTube.

He seems to have it all figured out. Maybe check out a video or two



Yes it is and I've also watched a couple of his videos.
He has a new one which he says puts the final nail in the coffin and I found it fascinating.
He talks of evolution and more but then finishes the second half with why he thinks the earth is flat.
I've been trying to post the video but I'm having problems.
Hope this link works.......m.youtube.com...

Either way, I think it's worth watching and it'd be good to hear some views on that video alone.

the narrator of that vid is an idiot , watch :

00:34 ~ 00:36

he says - " there should be a set of starts that we cannot even see "

the problem is the earth orbits the sun with a 365 day [ aprox for discussion ] period thus , the unlit side of the earth moves around the sun - thus all constalations can be seen - its basic astronomy

ergo - the guy is an idiot - or so dishonest it hurts

The main points of contention for Flat Earthers are the flight paths over the Southern hemisphere and that Antarctica is restricted. The flight paths are governed by international flight law regarding flying over large expanses of water (there is much less land in the Southern hemisphere), but this could be argued as a conspiracy. Antarctica is a natural and fragile habitat that has been agreed to be protected by international governments for the benefit of all mankind, but this too could be argued as a conspiracy.

However, if you and two friends were to mark out three points of a triangle in a large enough area, you would find that the angles do not add up to 180 degrees – it would be a higher number. This ONLY happens when the triangle is measured on a convex curved surface (on a concave surface the sum of the angles would be LESS than 180 degrees, on a flat surface the angles would be EXACTLY 180 degrees). If you were to calculate those angles and apply them to a globe they would match exactly, give or take the equatorial bulge and a couple other factors.

Only very simple, gullible and conspiratorial minds believe the Earth is flat.

I seriously question the integrity and credibility of not only the people that advocate this theory, but also the websites where it is advocated. I was quite excited about finding this place, but now I'm not quite so enthusiastic.

The motto of this website is currently 'Deny Ignorance'. I think it should be changed to 'Embrace Ignorance'.

exactly


they make a spurious point about flights - but actually ignore the evidence .

and all ATS fat earthers studiously avoid discussing the volvo ocean race

I don't see anywhere that ATS advocates for the "Flat Earth" theory but I could be wrong, feel free to point that out though and I'm also pretty sure this thread has a big fat skunk on the top of the page.

How does a flat-earther explain day and night? How does a flat-earther explain time-zones?

All pilots are being told that they just land every six hours incase an engine blows out? That is as dumb as a deaf and blind mongoloid, How does that make sense to anyone? Think about it? There are 13 hour nonstop flights leaving everyday at all times. How would an engine be considered safe after 6 hours of if it is just going to take off again and may fail after 2 hours? They don't check every part of the turbine and ensure it is safe everytime it lands. I myself have been on an 8 hour straight flight over ocean and land, is it safer crashing into ocean cause they have life jackets? LOL, that is a lie that they are told, trust me. All North pole and South Pole are militarized and you cannot fly over them if you tried. Good luck proving any point you tried to make.


They don't land every 6 hours, they can't fly over water for more than 6 hours at a time.

Well, Phage showed up to the party. If you bring claims, be ready to back them up.
I, however, am still just here to hear your ideas.

Thanks for contributing, everyone. And glad you stopped to check out my little thread, Phage.

Phage, I greatly appreciate your input and participation. But may I please ask that we don't let this become a contentious or argumentative thread? I know you can help me with this. I really do want Flat Earth proponents to speak their minds, and while discussing and debating viewpoints and evidence is bound to happen, could you help me to try and keep everyone from escalating beyond that?

There are also large proven energy reserves in the Alaskan Anwar area, yet the government prohibits drilling there to preserve the land. The idea of trying to maintain Antarctica in as pristine a state as possible has significant merit. And it is also a fantastic scientific resource. The great majority of the landmass is and arid frozen desert. And it is one of the closest analogues the the Martian environment. Research into the microscopic life there can help us understand the possibilities for life elsewhere and what should look for to find it.

Time zones you say . Strangest Time Zones of the World .
after watching this little vid it will become very clear . NOT.lol

Fair enough, but that has nothing to do with the premise of this thread. That video details 'ideal' time zones set by each governing body; whereas there is actually a motive behind having set time zones dependent on longitude. Flat-earthers cannot scrape an argument together to battle this, and the good old 'day and night' thing we have.

By the way, thanks for the video, very interesting. Can't believe the mess some of those boundaries are in!

How thick do flat earthers think our disc is? ie why not just drill through and prove your theory (or not).

Also what do flat earthers think is on the other side of our disc?

I'm guessing they imagine it quite like a pizza, with the antarctic 'wall' being the crust... We're basically floating in space on top of a pizza.

That isn't oil! It's puree!

One of the better maps I have see so far is this one . "Gleason's new standard map of the world : on the projection of J. S. Christopher, Modern College, Blackheath, England ; scientifically and practically correct ; as "it is."

Publisher: Buffalo Electrotype and Engraving Co.
Date: 1892
Location: World

Dimensions: 30 cm. in diameter, on sheet 55 x 39 cm.
Scale: [ca. 1:2,000,000]
Call Number: G3201.B71 1892 .G54x maps.bpl.org... 1892 is rather recent and it seems to be very professionally done .Its free to down load and can be zoomed in for some of the details .

The position of the sun, moon and stars in the sky, coupled with instant communications that we have in today's world, kills any idea that the Earth is flat.

For an observer who is say, on the east coast of the US in New York, is looking at the sun as it's setting. At the time, he might look at the sun while it is 15 degrees above the horizon still.

At that exact same time, if our person in New York calls a person living in California, and asks them to look at the sun, they will report that it is much higher in the sky than 15 degrees.

If the Earth were flat: both observers would see the sun at 15 degrees at that exact moment.

However, they do not. Instead, there is a difference in the angle of observation of each observer. They only way this can happen is if the surface that the observers are standing on is curved.

Even if the entire day and night time sky were some huge hologram (as been suggested), or that the Earth is really flat and the center of everything with everything going around it, the observations of what the sun, moon and stars and their positions are a dead giveaway that the surface of the Earth is in fact curved and not flat.

The math and geometry does not lie.
