Re: Who Thinks the Earth is Flat?

If there's one thing this forum has taught me, not everyone one thinks like me, how can this be? But these people are actually verging on nuts!!!!

Re: Who Thinks the Earth is Flat?

No, it's true. A guy proved it, he went up in a plane and put a level on his fold down table and it showed the world is flat.

Sounds legit.

And he's got charts and maths and sh!t to back it up.

Re: Who Thinks the Earth is Flat?

I wouldn't be too hard on them after all millions and millions of people believe in things that have zero evidence.

Re: Who Thinks the Earth is Flat?

It is truly dumbfounding.

I watched a YT vid of a FE conference. One of the presenters said it was obvious because when she held a 12" ruler up to the horizon, the horizon behind it was flat.

Then again, billions of people continue to believe in an imaginary friend, in one religion or another, so stranger things have happened.

Re: Who Thinks the Earth is Flat?

I have seen many ships go over the horizon and disappear.but they seem to fall very slowly off the edge. I still can't find the edge myself I will keep looking.

It is flat, but someone wrapped it around a ball.

Re: Who Thinks the Earth is Flat?

I had it explained to me by a flat earth believer.

Basically the earth is a disk, with the center at the north pole. This explains why people can sail around the world, they just made a circle. Antarctica is the edge of the world surrounding us.

Apparently, all attempts to reach the south pole are shrouded in mystery, and if you actually went farther you would discover new lands.

Kind of crazy

But at least we don't burn them to believe so. Humanity did some progress after all

Re: Who Thinks the Earth is Flat?

Proof is simple: Since the world is finite, but apparently flat, just go to the edge and take a picture.
