Oh, one last thing, why would anyone lie about the shape of Earth? What gain do they get? Answer this question in the bottom of your post so that you do not ignore my other points.

I think it's quite sad the amount of people here who are being so ignorant, whether the earth is round or flat doesn't excuse the outright ignorance these people choose to show in the form of mocking, it's people like this who ruin threads because there's so much crap that anyone who has anything to actually add is put off. Shouldn't there be a trolling forum for these people to get their anger out.
Star & flag for a well presented thread by the way.

So how does flat eart theory explain the simple observations of travelling. It makes no sense at all. We can see the curvature of the earth from space, if it was flat there would be no curvature. We understand space is curved but space is only curved because mass is curved. A dust particle is not flat, flat implies 2 dimensions left and right back and forth. If the world was flat there would be no up and down?
Yet, i can go down by digging a simple hole? If the earth was truely flat i wpuld be able to dig a hole to the other side of the earth like poking a hole in paper.

I am a flat earth believer for about 2 years now. This information was the hardest thing to even comprehend. Once exposed to the idea and reading the book"Earth Not a Globe". www.sacred-texts.com... . It took days before I could even accept the Idea of a flat earth even being possible. Here is a chart of the drop of the earth if it is indeed round.www.sacred-texts.com...
I found out about flat earth while researching conspiracies, and moon landing hoaxes. If you don't believe man has ever been to the moon you may be able to grasp the possibility of the earth being flat. If you believe everything NASA tells you, there is not much chance of you seeing the truth.
You are trusting NASA with pics from space. If the earth was round there would be no up or down. At least on flat earth if in USA and Australia if you throw something in the air, they are going the same direction.

Interesting thread. I appreciate the time you took to conduct the interviews.
It's certainly creative, and I'm impressed that they aren't all bible-thumpers, these flat earth people.
I've been warping my mind while reading through this thread trying to figure out how it could be true (the earth being flat). I won't go into some of my wilder imaginings, though I will offer this:
Video games. We perceive spherical objects and 3D environments when it's all just a projection of pixels on a flat screen using relatively basic math. Who's to say that what we perceive isn't constructed in a similar fashion? Wouldn't our creations mimic nature due to information association? What if we're stuck on an event horizon, trapped like a fly, yet we perceive projections which can appear rather spherical?
Fun thread, aside from the glut of mocking posts which did nothing but waste my time and reduce my respect for humanity.
