Watch the video again.


Just arguing semantics. "Round" basically means circular; it doesn't necessarily imply "spherical." That's all....

It does when you look at the back of the turtle. The back of the turtle is spherical. We are on the back of a turtle yes? As Phage pointed out...

We live on a hemispherical turtle.

Indeed.

theflatearthsociety.org...


Damn, you beat me to it. How bout this then...


The Flat Earth Society (also known as the International Flat Earth Society or the International Flat Earth Research Society) is an organization that seeks to further the archaic belief that the Earth is flat instead of an oblate spheroid. The modern organization was founded by Englishman Samuel Shenton in 1956 and was later led by Charles K. Johnson, who based the organization in his home in Lancaster, California. The formal society was inactive after Johnson’s death in 2001 but was resurrected in 2004 by its new president Daniel Shenton.

I could believe it.

It does not work that way because water creates pressure. With no water, the planet would not look that way. I think Earth is more of a spiral, which means Earth is flat. Similar to a swiss roll but round.

Top reason we know the Earth is round? We have PICTURES of it.

Because the shadow of the earth on the moon is always a circle... and there is only one geometric shape that casts a circular shadow from all angles:

A sphere.

The only time the Earth's shadow falls on the Moon is during a lunar eclipse. A lunar eclipse only occurs during a full Moon (when the Sun is opposite the Moon). There is only one "angle" when the Earth's shadow falls on the Moon.

The curved edge of the shadow is the shadow of the flat (but circular) Earth.

Indeed. The world is round.

No.1 should rightly come from the source that proclaimed it first. At least in my view.

"He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth..." (Isaiah 40:22,NIV). (By the way, the Hebrew language at that time did not have a word for "sphere," only for "circle.")

No.2 would be the moon. People of all times have been able to see a round moon and a round sun. I know if someone told me the earth was flat no matter what period ? I'd say bat schit !

Having fun, Phage, haven't you ? :-)

Ok so let's exercize further: what about horizon ? The Earth must be at least curved...all the way "round". With a very clear sky, on the sea for exemple, you can see boats "falling" in the horizon, but we know they do not fall (at least not before reaching the rim of our Discworld!) as they generally reach their final destination (unless they go in the Bermuda Triangle, of course, where they are sure to be abducted by Aliens, or drawn in the ocean's deth by some mystical crystal pyramid, or whatever). So there must be a curve. And this is the case anywhere in the world, so the curve must be continuous.
How about that? (and I'm sure you will find an answer to that too)

If you look away from the gas layer and say it is not part of earth then in fact the matter earth is not a round/sphere thing but an earth shaped thing that have mountins and cravices that make it not a perfect sphere.

You may have heard this but... Earth is much smoother than an Billiards's ball.....

So if you think billiards's ball is smooth... earth mountains have no effect on it.

How does water "create" pressure?
