This is very interesting. I know that there are people who believe the earth is flat but I have never had a chance to read a little of exactly what they believe or the evidence they provide. Yet, I am sorry. I do not believe that the world is flat. There is simply too much evidence to argue against it. It is has been proven time and time again that the world is in fact round. I can prove it to myself in just a few minutes with a simple experiment right from my apartment. The earth is round...it is a fact.

I read through their website information and I can see why they could 'believe' this, for a minute. It's quite fascinating and goes against everything I/we have been taught. Pretty interesting to think about though...however, I stop there because lack of proof and compelling evidence.
If the flat earth plane were infinite, then how do they explain their theory of a 150 foot ice wall surrounding our 'disk' earth to hold the oceans in? Wouldn't that be relatively easy to prove...just go to the ice wall with a camera right?
Also, they should really freak out if global warming is true and the ice caps are melting...

An easier way to verify that the earth is a globe is to go to the ocean and watch ships disappear over the horizon, simples.
Ships disappear on the horizon, but its only an optical illusion. After a ship goes 6 miles, it doesn't disappear over a hump of water. I can prove that with a telescope.

we are never upside down no matter what we do.
if you fly a plane in a straight line, never change altitude, why don't you fly off into space or do you gain altitude without touching the plane.
