People are well within their right to mock these flat earth nut jobs. They are wrong, it's a fact, and it's been proven time and time again without
any doubt whatsoever. To sit there and say "oh we shouldn't mock people because of their beliefs" is ridiculous. We should mock them when they are
How about these as proof?
Not only am I talking about images of the Earth that show it's round, but also the fact that the satellites go AROUND the Earth, they orbit it, which
is only possible with a round earth. How do I know for a FACT satellites exists? I've seen them with the naked eye wizzing past overhead. I've used
GPS which relies on Satellites. Other technology that relies on Satellites. Such technology wouldn't work if satellites weren't up there.
The moon is round, the sun is round, we can see both, we know they are round. It's perfectly logical that the Earth is round too.
But aside from all these examples, and all of the other examples other people have brought up, here is one that proves without a doubt that the earth
is a sphere:
The setting of the sun and moon.
Ever watch a sunset? The sun doesn't get smaller and smaller and then disappear, as it would if it was just getting so far away that we couldn't see
it anymore (which is the only way for the sun to "set" with a flat Earth) It, in fact, sets, hides behind the "edge" of the Earth. We can easily
see that the sun is still the same size, only half of it is visible, 1/4 is visible, etc.
But, if you are on the other side of the globe, the sun isn't setting, is rising! This is ONLY possible if the earth is a globe. Having the
continents arranged in a circle would not produce this effect. Having the continents in a circle would not produce the effect of taking an Airplane
and going in ANY direction and ending up back where you started.
This is complete, total nonsense, and these people are total idiots, along with anybody that supports them.
