The Earth is not flat idiots!

Just admit that you are trolling for clicks on YouTube or concede that you have no idea what you are talking about.


Lets assume the Earth is flat for a minute. It leaves many questions unanswered.

1. How thick is this Flat Earth?
2. What is over the edge of this Flat Earth?
3. What is keeping the Earth from falling into whatever is down below the Earth?
4. Why doesn't the Sun and Moon fall down to the Earth?
5. What magical material is the sky dome made of?
6. What causes the Coriolis effect?
7. Where do meteorites come from and what makes them decide to land on Flat Earth?

I have been looking for these answers watching some of the Flat Earth videos and no one brings this up.

This is the thing that really pisses me off. Flat Earther's want you to provide scientific evidence of a round Earth but then they use the Bible as their evidence. When you do provide real evidence of a round Earth or even experiments that can be done by any human being, they refute those arguments as CGI/hoax/lies ect. They cannot be bothered by facts.

This is not the same as the global warming debate yet it has been compared as such. Round Earth has been proven as a fact, its not a hypothesis or theory. Its an observable fact just like water is wet and the Sun is bright. Fact.

This leads me to believe that FE people are simply trolls. If you truly believe in a FE universe, please try and convince me that the Earth is flat. Give me an experiment to prove it once and for all.

They explain that too lol. Apparently when you fly from East to West or vice versa, you fly in a huge circle and pilots are tricked by the compass which points to North and North just so happens to be at the center of the Flat Earth. They also claim that both the North and South poles are off limits to flying (which is not true, but they can't be bothered with facts).

EDIT - Oh, and BTW, the South pole is the great wall of ice preventing from going off the edge of the Flat Earth. Its actually a ring wall of ice around the edge according to them.

Personally, I have no way of knowing either way, but man, don't get pissed. Everyone has a right to their own opinion, no?

I'm someone very open yet very skeptic, so I seriously don't know what shape is the Earth as I never did a full experiment myself.

Try to go over Antarctica and see where you end up.

I would try but I don't have the money, and probably the clearence, it would take.

Everyone has a right to an opinion but when you are stating your opinion as fact no matter what your motive, it is wrong. In this case people are going to ruin the minds of youngsters that are impressionable.

You ask "What is over the edge of this Flat Earth? "

Earth is a mobius strip in all directions.

Are you stating that it is a proven fact that the earth is a sphere?

I think the universe is a lot more strange than you think it is,

Here i'll solve the problem...

IF you watch this video you can clearly see the earth is actually changing shape all the time...

It bends from concave to convex...

So we're all wrong... its not flat... its not round... we live on a wave...

Better yet, go to flightradar24.com and wonder why there are no flights over the southern oceans. I've been watching for a full week and I haven't seen one yet. One example: Santiago Chile to Brisbane Australia is about 7,000 mile and the Boeing 777 has a 10,000 mile range - but no overseas flights that I've seen, yet.
Sorry about drift.

Quick google-fu shows that may not be exactly what he said.
publicnoises.blogspot.com...

But more a combination of two things that I guess you might be able to argue is a paraphrase at best.

Why don't flat earthers ever show a picture of the edge of the earth or the so-called ice wall.

We know why.

That is not a fair statement.

First: There are pictures enough showing the ice-wall... Now you can start debating if it is Thé Ice-wall... thats another story.
But as long as Antarctica is military a controlled zone.. you can not expect or ask for pictures taken with the purpose of proofing.. simply because acces is not allowed.
