If the earth is flat, what is on the other side of it?. Washing instructions?, a sticker that says Made in Magrathia?, an adhesive film that allows you to stick it on the fridge?.

How much ore can we mine before we fall through?. Are mountains ust regions where gravity is a bit screwy and you dont actually climb them?.

Tell me damn it!!.

the earth = oblate spheroid-so any other "discussion" = mental mastrubation

If the earth is flat, then surely we'd be calling it Discworld being, as it is, balanced on the back of four elephants who, in turn, ride the great turtle A'Tuin.

And, if the earth is flat, where do the seas go? Are they all surrounded by mountains or something? That question always bakes my noodle.

The laws of physics state that gravity cannot create a flat object in space


So you're saying that due to the laws of gravity the earth was formed into a sphere, I see, NOT!.
Care to explain what law of gravity that was?



Yes Planets moons and even suns are formed by accretion. This is where gravity takes objects and packs them together. Any object is always looking for its lowest energy state and that includes with gravity. Gravity occurs in all directions so as things accumulate they pack together looking for there lowest energy state means they are going to try to get as close to the center of gravity as possible. This will all ways create a sphere as new particles pack together trying to find there lowest energy state or in other words closest to the center of gravity they can get. You will never find a square planet or triangular they will all ways form a sphere.

Well the water would just fall off and disappear somewhere I guess. The thing that's the most obvious though is ever ocean current would lead to that edge meaning drop something in the ocean it would streak off to the edge of the world. In fact this is why many of the early sailors realized the earth is round with only minimal education. When they started tracking ocean currents this was a big clue the world was a globe. But in truth most of them knew that its kind of a myth when we say they thought the world was flat. All the at back to the greeks it was known the earth is round.

true, but I think from the shore you'd still be able to see it. The reason why is at 124miles away that's a massive drop in curvature. Like 2miles. So you won't see any of that island if using ball earth math


The height of the thing you're looking at and the height you're looking from have a tremendous effect on 'ball earth math'.

Also, you're making the incorrect assumption that you're 'seeing it down to the shoreline', which you're not. It goes back to the Toronto thing - everyone was screaming that it was all visible. Until I started pointing out the 300' tall buildings in front that were not visible. With no landmarks to judge the heights of what you're seeing on the islands, it's not possible to say what the altitude of the horizon cutoff is.

well when it comes to flat earth stuff there's a lot of back and forth between believers and debunkers. Except there's a few major gapping holes. the main one I see is being the flight paths.





What I really find strange is it seems like the one video that showed all the emergency stops disappeared. Wow, how convenient. Some guy found like 5 or 10 news stories carried by major newspapers about a flight having to stop. One was because of a birth, one because of heart attack etc etc. The cities they stopped in where virtually right under them or very near them at the time. On the flat earth model they're right on the way to the destination. On the globe the flight would have had to travel thousands of extra miles completely out of it's way to get there taking hours. Instead the flight lands almost immediately at a city below. So that too me was shocking proof that there's something not right with the globe model. but of course that video was removed or who knows what happened to it. But it doesn't matter the's hundreds of other similiar videos on youtube showing the flight paths and refueling cities which literally prove that this globe map is a farse. I hope I'm wrong actually. But there's just too much evidence backing flat earth.

A simple thing is look at this:

Look up on youtube: ISS live feed. (search that) then click on it. Okay where's the satillites???? There should be hundreds and hundreds of them you could see from that view. But you seen none.

And so do this.... in the ISS chat say in there: "where's the satillites??" and watch how fast you get booted out of there.

all I found was one grainy video showing 1 supposed satillite:
www.youtube.com...

However, this is how many there's suppose to be. Not including the thousands of pieces of space debree. You should be seeing a bee hive of ships. Instead there's NONE. So this is extremely suspect.

your idiotic " source " uses a mercator map as it " evidence " - if it used a globe - a any honest invsetigator would - then bali >> LAX make perfect sense - with the bet bailout being alsaka

but as your " source " uses the equidistant projection - the " common " map of the flat earth delusion

then actually air and sea travel make less sense :

johanasburg >> perth = imposible

the vandee globe yacht race = imposible

sydney >> santiago = imposible

dont cherry pick ;p

So why is there no satillites when looking at the ISS Live Feed on youtube? There's thousands of satilites and thousands of pieces of space debree yet in the ISS feed you never ever see any satilites? makes no sense???

And yes some might be in higher orbit. But not all of them. Not only that but most often the camera is pointed at the horizon so you should still be able to see many objects both close and far drifting around. Yet you see none.

To me all that does is fall right in line with all the other Nassaa BS that they've tried to convince us is real. Like the moon landing and every other budget blackhole hoax they do to steal tax payer money. It's really sad.

For the same reason you can not see all 7 billion people on the Earth.

Space around the Earth is BIG.

Satellites and debris in orbit are small. Very small.

Satellites tend to be in different orbits (wouldn't want to have them banging into each other, yes?).

Exactly how visible do you expect a small satellite to be from the ISS (when it's not reflecting sunlight) ?

it makes perfect sense

heres a question that actually answers yours :

why no ships [ maritime vessels ] visible from ISS ?

do i take your change of topic as admission that your premise on air travel was flawed ?

What?

A very slight change in Inclination of a Satellite (think 0.001), and a slight different altitude of a satellite (I.e 1 meter) at either Apoapsis (high point of Orbit) or Periapsis (Low point of Orbit) can make that satellite zoom 20-50KM's + away from the ISS itself.

Space around Earth orbits is BIG.

I suggest you download a Copy of Kerbal Space Simulator and take a go at it, play it with the MechJeb Mod if you do not want to learn how to get a rocket into orbit by yourself, it will help you understand completely how wrong your comprehension abilities are.

Riddle me this... Why are rain drops spherical ?
Frankly I'm incredulous that people still believe this proposition of the earth and other heavenly bodies being flat. We threw that out in Grade School ....

Simply view the terrain of planet Earth through Gods eyes and suddenly the flat Earth theory all fits into place, with all of the stars in a celestial dome.

Hint: has to do with surface tension and minimal energy
