My point is from the point of view of someone who sees a spherical earth as probably the most absurd thing anyone could believe in.

And you believe anything would just pop up the opposite site like PAC man once they reach earth's edge, is logical? You are saying every other spherical celestial bodies like sun, planets and moons is absurd too? So where is your flat mars society?

Now, from that as the starting point for my position, my actual point is not about whether the Earth is flat or not, as if it was debatable, but more that using that notion as if it is "proven truth" as a false religion pitted against the true religion based on the Bible, is an argument no one should engage in because it will only inevitably end in your complete embarrassment.

Complete embarrassment?

Advocating flat earth is a complete embarrassment to scientific field.

OK, look at what I said, I did not say how long since someone proposed such a notion, but the time when it became a dominate belief worldwide.
And this is not anything "the church" told me, since the specific church I belong to totally accepts the idea of planets and places someone could actually go to and there might even be people living on other planets.

So you are saying, somewhere before ( 2018 - 50 years ) 1968 a dominate belief worldwide is still stuck with the old Ptolemaic system?

Do you know Nicolaus Copernicus published Copernican heliocentrism in 1543? It was a hundred years before Galileo proven this to be true and began teaching it at his university? What make you think for more than 400 years after this finding, worldwide belief continue to be in dark age? A lot of major advancement has been made after this discovery. Thanks to Galileo's telescope we finally be able to observe celestial bodies motion with our own eyes. Have you ever visit a planetarium before?

These flat earth facts are things that I mostly learned from watching YouTube videos, as I suggested in my earlier post for others to do likewise.

There is nothing wrong watching YouTube for information. It's wrong however, to trust unqualified armchair seeking attention YouTube uploaders. It's wrong to base fact on pseudo sciences, such as Flat Earth nonsense.

"Debunked" is usually something like a lot of personal attacks on people who hold an opposing view, it is not anything like actually disproving anything.

It does reinforce my belief that some conspiracy theorists are disinfo agents.

Anyway, as I say in the above comment in this post, my goal is not to debate whether the details of these stories are true or not, but to present the argument against the use of these stories as if they are just plain irrefutable facts in order to "debunk" the Bible.

Oh I have tons of evidences to "debunk" the Bible, which is why I've asked, do you need me to list all biblical scienfic errors?

Wow! There is a thing called common sense even in young children, regardless of any "scientific" teachings being taught to them.

Those common sense did not exist before Newton's Law of Gravity. Common sense did not exist in Trinity and many Church's other doctrines such as Eucharist, Rosary and Hail to Mary. Not to mention the use of improper words such as unicorn in KJV and softcore porn.

How about you start doing common sense to your young children by telling the truth about your christmas gifts to them, instead of Santa Claus?

And Jesus did not born on 25th December. But there is one god who is born on 25th December. His name is Mithra. A pagan god.

The last supper was not done on the eve of Christmas. It was done on the eve of Passover.

And you guys believe everything you did, is suppose to base on the word of God?

Seriously?

Do you know the fruit of the spirit of your "men of god" or your monks?

It's called paedophilia and hypocrites.

What you sow is what you reap.

So don't blame God. It isn't His doing. It's your own choice and labor.
"Before the rooster crows in the morning, you will deny me three times."

But hey, God is merciful. Unlike your delusional drunken men who had whores at their side while scribbling the Bible, acting as the apostles. Most of your faithful servants died martyrdom. Your religion is left with nothing except this rubbish monks who acted as if they're inspired by God. Therefore the Bible is their fruit of spirit. You can see how messy and controversial it had become.

Enough said.

God knows everything and how innocents you poor souls are.

May our father in heaven bless you.

Like I said, God doesn't lies. God is flawless. God is perfection.

The bible translation isn't flawless. Flat Earth isn't flawless. KJV's unicorn isn't Hebrew's word for Re'em. Jesus never said he is god. The gospel of John authorship's is highly debated. John's Revelation is forbidden to use in liturgy by some churches, Peter's Gospel is condemn for docetism, Moon is not the "lesser light which rule over the night", stars are not simply blinking lights which are smaller than earth, there is only one Genesis, etc..

I could go on and on for many hours rambling about the flaw of Bible.

God's nature is consistent.
“For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed. (Mal 3:6 ESV)

If Abraham, Moses, Isaiah and Jesus said God's love is unlimited, then god's love is unlimited. If Abraham, Moses, Isaiah and Jesus said, God is omnipresence, omniscient, omnipotent and everylasting, then God is omnipresence, omniscient, omnipotent and everlasting. You dont start with "In the beginning....bull#." There is no beginning. God doesn't spin His words around logic/logia and terminology, just to lie or test human's intelligence, especially, primitive first century monks and their whores behind closed doors.

Everything good comes from God. He does not create Hell just to throw the gullibles into it.
Jeremiah 29:11
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

But your drunken pedophilian corrupted monks would not have it.
Psalm 139:16-17.
“Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!”

What did God say?

Leviticus 19:2
"Speak to the entire congregation of the Israelites and tell them: 'Be holy because I, the LORD your God, am holy.

Psalm 94:14.
“For the Lord will not cast off His people, nor will He forsake His inheritance.”

Isaiah 40:28
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.

Jeremiah 23:23-24
“Am I a God at hand, declares the Lord, and not a God far away? Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? declares the Lord. Do I not fill heaven and earth? declares the Lord.

a question that seems to be really just more ridicule.
Misdirection, since i was talking about the shape of the earth, not systems.
The Chinese system and about one third of the population of the earth, the Muslims, believe in flat earth, so you end up with clear majority of people who probably never heard of a globe.
I think what you have in mind is probably something like a dominant school of thought among college professors, not what I was talking about at all.


Do you know Nicolaus Copernicus published Copernican heliocentrism in 1543?

I already addressed this in my earlier post.


It was a hundred years before Galileo proven this to be true and began teaching it at his university?

Copernicus had a thesis that there is a way to calculate movements of objects observed in the sky by imagining them going around the sun. I suppose someone at some time showed it was possible to some degree.


What make you think for more than 400 years after this finding, worldwide belief continue to be in dark age?

Flat earth is not a product of the "Dark Ages".
Heliocentrism has been disputed in scientific circles constantly, so even among academics, it has never been seen as "established fact" and remains to this day only a theory.
But this, again, was not what I was saying, I was saying, what has been generally believed among the great mass of the people who live on the planet, regardless of what is going on in the top levels of academia.


A lot of major advancement has been made after this discovery.

You call it a"discovery", I would say the introduction of a theory. But your argument, I think would better support my side, that when people were deciding that the earth was a sphere, there was no way to tell, so it was just based on anecdotal evidence, like people on the docks watching ships sailing off into the distance.


Thanks to Galileo's telescope we finally be able to observe celestial bodies motion with our own eyes.

"Bodies" would be an interpretation, what we would see is lights.


Have you ever visit a planetarium before?

ad hominem and appeal to ridicule.

Great, then you or anyone else like you who wants to "debunk" the Bible can use all of those, and skip mentioning flat earth. This was my original point, that saying "flat earth" is not a way to disprove the Bible or religion in general because lots of people like myself have seem the truth of a flat earth despite the religion I belong to being quite happy to go along with a spherical earth.
As for the rest of your comments, they don't have anything to do with anything I said.
I think you do a good job of illustrating my point that the only argument for a spherical earth is an appeal to authority, with a lot of ridicule and ad hominem thrown in for those who do not bend the knee..

Kind of old already. There is a new video I watched last night that packs in a lot of information that is on the cutting edge of flat earth research.

Sphere Earth is dead, and all there is left is the "true believers" who were convinced of it in Kindergarten and first grade and like to hold onto those old beliefs for security. Like I was saying before in my earlier post, I don't want to debate it since there is no debate, if you watched the video I linked to, you would see, it is law on the books that the earth is flat and if you plan a building or bridge to conform with a theoretical sphere, you would be breaking the law and legal action can be taken against you.

Except you have to try to understand.... flat earthers are in fact morons... its a proven fact

Thus... those that have the patience to attempt to explain the simplest concepts to them should be praised

its not a rigged experiment... its a basic explanation of simple things.... showing factual curvature in a liner measurement... for the basic people... or in other words, flat earthers

IF you actually don't understand it... perhaps you've already grouped yourself in with them...

which makes my plea null and void anyways

This is a sort of appeal to "smarter people", I guess a variation on an appeal to authority, that you as a flat-tard, need to just quit thinking and let smart people tell you what you would think if you were one of the elite smart people.
Maybe you do not understand what I was saying.
Here is a camera set up to look over what is virtually open ocean, where the camera is lower than the waves in the middle of the water between the camera and the towers.
That is not "curvature", it is the effects of wind on open sea.
There are plenty of videos of cameras looking across sheltered water inside harbors or lakes, where you can put a camera barely out of the water, but there are not waves that are two meters high in the middle.

Heliocentrism has been disputed in scientific circles constantly, so even among academics, it has never been seen as "established fact" and remains to this day only a theory.

Wrong.


The geocentric model held sway into the early modern age, but from the late 16th century onward, it was gradually superseded by the heliocentric model of Copernicus, Galileo, and Kepler

en.m.wikipedia.org...



but the Galileo affair did little to slow the spread of Heliocentrism across Europe, as Kepler's Epitome of Copernican Astronomy became increasingly influential in the coming decades.[102] By 1686 the model was well enough established that the general public was reading about it in Conversations on the Plurality of Worlds, published in France by Bernard le Bovier de Fontenelle and translated into English and other languages in the coming years. It has been called "one of the first great popularizations of science."[101]

In 1687, Isaac Newton published Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, which provided an explanation for Kepler's laws in terms of universal gravitation and what came to be known as Newton's laws of motion. This placed Heliocentrism on a firm theoretical foundation

en.m.wikipedia.org...

Sure, the great mass of illiterate dark age people and pedophilian monks who live before the 16th century.

The great mass of people during the time of Newton are more likely educated enough to know planetary motion and gravity.

Nope. It is decided by observations, mathematic applications, well accepted experiments and gravity. Your blinking little stars in the bible just don't fall down to Earth, like John of Patmos said, in Revelation. Gravity exist in space to keep everything in motion. And stars are billions time larger than Earth. Therefore, there is no such things as fallen stars to fill one third of earth, as Revelation predicted. You really should watch the sky with a telescope.

All I can figure is that you preemptively dismissed all flat earth discussion, otherwise you would not be saying any of the things you are saying here.
"Science" is not an entity, like the magisterium, as the Ministry of Truth that all must obey, you are turning history on its head and taking over the position the Church had in 1633.
Science is a process of study using evidence and repeatable experiments.
The experiments cited by sphere believers go back to 300bc to 1890, and have been often unsuccessfully attempted to be repeated in modern times.

You obviously have a bias and you think you are the center of the universe so whatever you and a few people very close around you think is all that matters, and now want everyone else in the world to agree.
You can delude yourself into thinking everyone must, because you are "right" because your teacher in school told you so.
Well, everyone else has different teachers and most people in the world just know what is evident before their eyes, which is a flat earth. Spherical earth is something that has to be taught to someone before they have the life experience to rebut those who seem to be in positions of authority over them.
It seems that the sphere earth theory is something only pushed in Western countries with a Christian background, specifically by atheists who want to combat what they see as a history of tyrannical rule by the Church, which you exhibit symptoms of.

I would accept as a fact that most people who have an astronomy degree, and put on planetarium shows, agree with the spherical earth theory.
But actual scientific evidence, I have not seen any yet, nor have you presented any other than a video showing you cannot see through waves in front of your camera, which does not prove anything about the shape of the earth.
If the earth was this rather small ball floating in space and spinning at 1000mph at the equator, it would be very easy to prove and there would be evidence everywhere, but there isn't.
