Hello, last spring I got sort of exposed to the whole flat earth thing. Since then I've seen so many back and forth arguments as to if there's any
merit there or not.
One issue I have a bit of a problem with is the idea that basically people can't go visit. Or it's seriously restricted. Like I heard that if you go
on an adventure cruise, if they're real (which cost like 50,000$) , then at most they'll take you to the shore to walk around.
But here's what I'm not sure about....
Lets say all the reason as to why people can't go there are legitimate. Like they say that it's because they're trying to keep it as a natural
sanctuary untouched by man. Okay fine, if that's true so be it. but....
why don't we have any significant video of any jets flying over it and someone say filming through a window down at it? There's been a few where they
show the ocean, and coastline. So I seen thoughs. But they say the land mass of antarctica should be larger than the USA. So what I don't get is why
we haven't seen any real video of say a jet flying over that "inland area" and just filming down so that we can see it?
All they ever show are videos of the coast. Or slightly inland. Nothing "way in" like where you'd have the great plains in the US. "way inland". So
that would put a lot of flat earth theory to rest. But there's NOTHING in terms of video footage. Mind you even if there was again it could easily be
faked anyway. But still, why can't they show the world that it's this supposed "contenent".
I'm yet to see any convincing proof of that. And I'm objective. I'd take an honest look at anything that would show some proof. But again, nothing
So as for other arugments, I've seen a lot of back and forth each way. Those facts are perhaps harder to proove or disprove. So I mean if you can see
another island from hawaii at 90 miles away and all that great stuff, fine, whatever, but still it's hard to say.
But the fact that tptb basically block people from seeing or visiting Antarctica is "highly suspect". If it's there "lets see it" in detail. Not just
the coast. I want to see some video of the interior. And that dumb expedition that the royals did I don't put a lot of weight on that. Why? Because
it's the royals, it's baised. Of course where else would they take the war vets than none other than the middle of antartica. What a joke. Like some
independent video would be far more convincing. And I mean seriously if the royals and hurt war vets can make it out there, then that means that there
should be hundreds of other fit people who would have also made it and filmed it. But there aren't any.
Anyway what's your take on that and on flat earth? What is it really? Is it real, or is it a psy op of some sort of it's own?
Like this is a beautiful psy op from what I can tell. What a joke, but it looks so real. Get real. Let me explain why?
Type into google: "size of Antartica" you'll get: 14million km2. then type in.....size of USA, you'll get....9.834 million km²
So according to the video below, Prince Harry and friends treked on skis to the south pole (and back?) (each hauling a heavy sled of gear)??? YOu're
FREAKIN JOKING right???
THINK HERE.... That would be approximately a 2000 mile journey there and back to the coast. On their site they said it was just 200 miles. www.princehenryofwales.org...
And I could be way off base. I'm just speculating here. But that would be like you walking from NYC to Spokane Washington. (almost). That would take
months. And in those brulte freezing conditions chances are you wouldn't make it. ON their site they said they went about 10 miles a day. So that
would mean it would actually take more like 200 days to go there and back.
AGain I'm not saying I know. I don't know, which is why I'm so curious to try and get some hard core proof that this whole flat earth thing is fake?
So far I'm yet to get some concrete proof. And news footage of a royal going there actually does the opposite. Like if they're actually going to
spread propaganda like that out there then it really gets me questioning stuff.
Anyway what do you think of all this????
(ya so according to this guy they got dropped off closer to the south pole, about 100 to 200 miles away from it). So if that's true then I could be
wrong in my previous comment. But again, the point is that Antarctica is supposedly a lot bigger than the USA in land mass. So Why haven't we seen
much footage of it? Like there's not much out there in terms of filming the interior.
Anyway, that's my 2 cents.

A video of the flight across the United States would be BORING, never mind the one over the Antarctic. Just with all white ice.....But I do believe
some NASA(gasp) based orbital footage shows the Antarctic, much less boring when it goes by in orbit(faster too).

Basically, you can put a circle around the ice and landmass that is Antarctica, right? (Lets assume the standard - the Earth is a sphere idea). I
mean, there is some line of latitude that is far enough north of Antarctica to encompass it. Now, imagine you take a boat around Antarctica via that
line of latitude.
If you begin to have deja vu because you've reached the starting point and are continuing back along the path, then obviously the Earth is either
cylindrical or spherical. If you travel for an amount of time that you expect to hit that point and things are still looking different all the time,
then maybe there is a different (flat) shape. Problem solved.
Why traverse the crappy weather of Antarctica to find this out? Being in the boat will be slightly less bad, at least... Obviously, the flight stuff
also that people mentioned. I mention the boat situation precisely because anyone could do it themselves. That is, you can get firsthand experience
rather than taking someone else's word from a jet flying over or a satellite orbiting.

hi - instead of fantasising about alledged " problems " with antarctica - why not solve the issue ` from home ` with some real science that can be
done for very little money - esp if you have collaborators
the veracity of the spheroid model can be confirmed using any of the examples in my thread
i have numerous other ways to show that all flat earth claims are false - all of which can be realistically tested from the ` saftey ` of your own
PS - if you insist on talking about antarctica - fine - lets address actual facts and science - not the flat earthers delusions - you game ?
Here is a nice map of Antarctica, see the red numbers: 1, you have Argentina and Chile there. 2, South Africa. 3, Australia and New Zealand. Where is
the mystery???? Or, to be more precise, where is the 'edge of the world'?
