Oh and hope my first post didn't seem at all mean, as it was meant in a 'light hearted' manner ... and if you meant flat earth conspiracy, then that's
even less likely (I won't say impossible just 'cause).
I mean, there might've been some sort of charade with the moon shot IF we had a secret space program already delving into the Oort cloud by that time,
and I'm weird enough to consider that... but a flat earth just doesn't compute... unless we're totally in a sim and then the "no earth" scenario could
be argued ; )
But then I've been in airplanes and on mountain tops where the curve of earth was apparent (eta was hyperbole, I think only mt everest is near high
enough to detect curvature), know about gravity and have seen our planets shadow on the moon on occasion, plus I also 'believe' in physics ...though I
guess we could be on a series of turtles, too!
I will dutifly look at the new thread, and know of the guy in the 1800's who measured canals in England, for example, and "found" that the earth was
flat... but he didn't have gps or accurate instruments or a holistic grasp of physics (eta x2 refraction is the key there, if my bad brain serves).
Heck, never mind.. .we're likely just brains in vats after all and all bets are off! Party like the mandela effect struck again and we're now on a
flat earth... I know I will ; )
