    It's like painting a big tunnel on a huge, flat-faced boulder. Then, walking a quarter mile over to the guy in a semi and *TELLING* him/her that the tunnel *IS* indeed, *FAKE.* The driver - having witnessed the tunnel being just painted - still drives off and into the rock at 90mph. Exploding into a fatality and a big mess... Why? Because that particular driver *BELIEVED* the cartoon. *NOT* the reality. I'm hoping that *EVERY* single one of these Flatts *ARE* indeed, *TROLLS* - unabashedly out for sh*tz 'n' giggles. 'cause if'n they ain't... Let's hope they are taking their meds and are kept *FAR* away from any sharp things.

  • Carl Septien

    Look. I have seen sun beams in the sky at sunrise. I've watched the sun come up and go down. I've witnessed the lengthening of days in summer compared to winter in the northern hemisphere, and no significant difference near the equator. I've experienced different time zones and I'm aware that if you travel in a single direction for long enough you will return to your point of origin. Objects disappear behind the horizon as they move away and the horizon appears in the bottom half of any view when you stand looking straight ahead. There are two glacial poles. Currents move in opposite directions in the northern and southern hemispheres. The earth seems to me to be a sphere on a titled axis. (whether or not it's spinning or celestial objects orbit it I haven't considered.) Now, of course, no one seems to be able to leave the surface zone of this globe and thus it might be difficult to prove by human sight alone; by this I mean a human orbiting the globe at even 200 miles up will not see much curvature if the globe is really almost 8,000 miles in diameter. I cannot see any "flat earth" model which can account for all the above phenomena, not to mention the evidence of continental drift towards the Pacific basin and evidence of antipodal shifting of material as a result of the mechanism which caused the uplifting of the Mid Atlantic Ridge. Together with the many scars and evidences of surface materials shifting on this basis, I see no logical model for a flat disc shaped surface. Furthermore the overwhelming evidence of catastrophe marking the Earth facing side of the Moon suggests the origin of the objects causing those impacts was the Earth itself, otherwise the Earth would have suffered the same fate. This could not happen if the Earth is flat.

    Just being dead serious, the earth, or any celestial body bigger than my ex, must be round do to it's gravitational pull. Gravity as we know must exist as there is no other way it could, and if the Earth was accelerating upwards at 9.8m/s2, then what about the people on the other side? Antarctica would be way bigger than it already is, and weather would be completely fucked, raining only in the center and everything else is a dry desert.

    Not sure why people even talk about a flat earth? If it was flat there would have been an edge going around the world, correct? So then MANY countries would have had the edge go through them and MANY people would have seen it. Not to talk about that we fly airplanes and go by boat AROUND THE WHOLE WORLD ALL THE TIME. Not to talk about all the expeditions and scientists that go around the world every damn day... People would have taken photos and videos from the edge LONG time ago if it was there LOL! Where is the edge? Thailand? North pole? South Africa? Australia? Where is it?! Invisible?

    Troll troll troll. And its not even a good one. We would never even spoken about a round earth if there was an edge around the world because it would have been spotted - OBVIOUSLY - long time ago.

    Ok flat earthers, riddle me this. In Dubai, the tallest building in the world is there. If you're on the ground the sun is set for you because it went over the curve of the earth. But, if you're in the building you can see the sun, and if you take a thermometer you can get heat, I'll be it Very little. You can see it because the building is taller so you can see over the curve. Now if the world was flat everyone would be in day at the same time, and this would not be possible. Or how can I go one way and end up there again on the other side

    Ok, here is something for flatties to think about.
    Just think about how much power sun needs to have in order to give out so much heat and energy. I mean, it can raise temperatures of entire continents for goodness sake.
    If sun was really about 3000 miles or so as flatties say it is, then we would turn into Shish kebabs in a matter of milliseconds.
    Or if it was weaker so that it does not burn everything, then it would not have enough energy to heat up the earth... just think about it, and where would all that energy come from if sun was small???

    Lol @ all the freaks who really believe earth is flat. But honestly you just need to ask one simple question that will shut all their "theories" down: Why? Why would the NASA, scientists etc go to such length to prove the "lie" of a round earth? What do they gain? Why even inventing the round earth-"lie" in the first place?

    Honestly, even the "moon landing was fake"-theory is more believable since at least there would have been a reason to fake this (to beat the sovjets in the race to the moon).
