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.

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.


There are so many discussions on YT which will provide you with answers to your valid questions.... and some. You should not believe what flat earthers tell you..but that will not be a problem I guess. Thats why you should do your own research. And again...I am not a flatearther because I am not convinved yet. It is very difficult for me to accept the Earth is flat. But one thing I have learned because of my own diving into it....something is going on. The "strange" stuff with the moonlandings is part of this conclusion... NASA is not telling us all.

Have you seen this science docu called The Principle..? This is something simular.. A must see for people who want to be informed about "alternative" conclusions based on hard science. As you said..thousends of years of math go down the drain if the conclusions made are the right ones.

Then there is of course the fact that we know close to nothing

I'd rather bang my head against a brick wall than argue with a flat earther.

I have two questions for anyone that believes in a flat earth

1) If you're in Sydney, and look at the stars, they're different than they are if you were in London. WHY? If the Earth were flat, surely the sky above us would be the same?
2) There are several hundred people who have gone into space now, from multiple nations. If the Earth is flat, where are the flat Earth photos? Show me a single undoctored photo of a flat earth, and I'll buy in.

People are getting dumb because the education system is making them this way. In schools, kids are being taught that "it's not important to have the right answer" in math, and most tests are now multiple choice instead of being critical essay type questions.

Since the 1980's, tests have gotten easier and facts have gotten murkier. People are being taught that they don't want to do their own research, they should just listen to Alex Jones, Rush Limbaugh, or Donald Trump and accept that what they (and often their Church leaders) say is true, and they should just accept it.

Teachers are removing critical thinking, and people are being told to believe what they read on facebook over what they may research on their own on traditional media sites.

People have more access to information than at any time in history, and are the stupidest generation that's ever been, For the first time in history, the average IQ of the generation that follows is NOT higher than the generation before it, not by a long shot.

Take away ability for abstract thought and critical thinking, and you have mindless drones who think they are educated and free.

Definitely. And remember what Babe Ruth said when he hit his 48th of 1927.

Oh, 1927. THERES a Frueidian slip!

I entertained the possibility FE as a thought experiment even though it goes against every thing I
taught myself about astronomy, physics, the sun being a star undergoing fusion ect.

I said ok I will suspended everything I know about physics and astronomy and as a thought exercise listen to the flat earth community and their arguments on you tube.

Honestly given what I know I could not accept any of the cases for flat earth however I could see how the videos could appeal to those with no background or interest in science.

like I said I suspended my judgement briefly and did a what if thought experiment with flat earth and quite frankly the case it is very poor.

It's not even scientific FE starts with the premise that the earth is already flat and only seeks evidence to support it's case and discards anything that challenges that world view.

I myself would like these questions answered if the earth really is flat.


1.How can I observe satellites and the Iss in the night sky orbiting the earth?

2. Where does the signal come from when I watch satellite TV in the country if there are no satellites according to FE?

3. When I observe a compass what causes the needle to point north if the earth does not have a molten metal core generating a magnetic field?

4. If the earth is not a sphere tilted at 23.5 degrees as it orbits the sun then what causes it to be winter in Argentina while it is Summer in north america?

5. What causes both lunar and solar eclipses with a flat earth?

6. What is the source of gravity on a flat earth?

8. Why do other celestial bodies appear spherical while the earth is supposedly flat?

9. If the sun is not a star undergoing fusion by convert hydrogen into helium and releasing energy then how does it work and what is the sun in the flat earth model?

10. How can an international conspiracy be carried out by nations that are not always on friendly terms with each other to conceal that space travel is not even possible?

11.Why Are telecommunication companies wasting millions of dollars to launch satellites into orbit if most versions of FE do not accept that space travel is possible?

12. Where does the GPS signal that my phone can pick come from if there are no satellites? I have been in back country where I have had no cell signal because there are no towers in that area or anything man made yet I have been able to pick up GPS satellite coordinates.
How is this possible if there are no satellites?

13.If it is not charged solar particles hitting the ionosphere at the magnetic north and south pole that causes the aurora borealis then what is its cause?

14. If not space debris heating and lighting up as it hits the atmosphere, then what is the cause of the numerous shooting stars I have witnessed?

15. Every time I watch videos of astronauts on the ISS floating in total weightlessness is it all just a hoax on some set with
astronauts of many nationality all in on the scam and not a single one has let slip that it's all just a act?


Enjoy the View of our round earth from the ISS
