If there was anything, anything at all, to this "theory" do you honestly think that many of us here wouldn't leap at it to check it out? We're on this site for a reason, after all...
Flat Earth is pure bunkum.
The math used literally thousands of years ago provided sufficient proofs to settle FE forever.
The questions being asked of FE believers are valid, and so far, I've not run into a single solitary one of them who can answer these questions. The only response we get for them is "look for yourself". Nonsense, and other such words. If you know the answer, provide it for those of us who are, apparently, too blind to see.

Excellent topic for a thread. Also in line with this line of questioning is the idea that mabey people are falling victim to believing in the flat earth conspiracy because of all the lead toxins in the evironment especially caused from when gasoline was leaded which caused a noticeable increase in enviromental lead What Im saying is mabey people are getting dumb again because of all the lead in there bodies.
In other words, the evidence for a round earth outways the evidence for a flat Earth.
Personally though, I am now at peace in my surroundings and know that I know that I know.
I was raised in the public school system. I believed them but had doubts, but instead of questioning them, gave them the benefit of the doubt.
They didn't figure it out...they speculated, which is all science is today, speculation, with number's and letter's all jumbled up in lines to make it look more complicated than what it really is, but really there to distract you from the truth and make you believe you can't go and find out for yourself whether the earth is round like a spinning ball.
there are a lot of very well done videos out there which can explain your question.
I am convinced we are not on a spinning ball. Why can't science prove that?
Many, many scientists have tried to prove a spinning earth but no real evidence, just made up math. Nothing solid.
If your were to get a telescope with two lenses like binoculars, you would be able to see that those "so called" planets, look nothing more than stars.
The truth is coming out more and more.
I was deceived too and just took their word for it because they are suppose to be educated scholars...lol.
There is much disinformation out there it is hard to discern the truth.
That's because you are taking someone else's word for it instead of going out and experimenting yourself to know the truth. The truth will set you free.
Personally, I think it is ignorant to believe anything a man tells me to be true, without first going and testing it first.
Some people just can't be taught, and other's need to be open and just keep seeking.
Enjoy the View of our round earth from the ISS
Nope. Not a real pic. It's a thumbnail made for the video feed.
Lots of YouTube videos use creative looking thumb nails that are not a frame from the actual video. Lot's of Youtubers do that.
Obviously though the issue is 'direction of sunlight illuminating the moon'. Rofl. You're trying to believe you understand things you don't, and are looking for things that aren't there.
Most pictures taken from the ISS have massive refraction. You really think that's the curvature the ISS actually witnesses? No. From the very beginning that angle is distorted.

Why make a fake thumbnail.
