If someone showed me a 2016 cellphone commercial 30 yrs ago, I would be speechless. therefore, I will entertain this discourse. just so you know, I
don't believe that the earth is flat. I will accept certain interesting points as facts: no one is allowed to travel beyond a certain point in
Antarctica; that long distance flights below the equator never travel along the longitudinal lines as we know it; that with modern technology there
can be computer generated footage/video from nasa re: iss and other space pics/video. that being said, flat earth theory requires a global conspiracy
on a massive scale. not just by governmental entities and their representatives, but also by engineers, pilots, and other academics. the argument
that I hear most, is that no professional would subscribe to flat earth theory on fear of being ridiculed. and this has stopped academia in the past?
even today, there are legitimate professionals in the scientific community that argues against global climate change; and they still adhere to their
positions. Aside from the greatest mass conspiracy, there is also the question of why? just to say that all the conspirators were freemasons does not
negate the fact that someone who is not a mason would surely be in the know. a civil discourse is what I enjoy, on a wide variety of topics. I would
certainly never think a flat earther is crazy or psychotic. on the contrary, due to the limitations of what information any one person can gather in
the first person, most if not all knowledge is based upon others' perceptions, studies, and scientific analysis.
