    I mean these guys are about as ignorant to evidence and logical argument as you can get. Someone going over there and explaining something that they have ignored a million times before is'nt really going to convert them now is it?
    I mean jesus christ they only have to look at a weather satelite pic and they can even see for their own eyes.

    Its impossible to help them, use your breathe on living an hour longer at the end of your days.

    This is caused by refraction through thick atmosphere, whose effects, naturally, increase with distance. This, therefore, does not constitue evidence for the Earth being flat.

    Please provide documentary, peer reviewed evidence, published in a bona fide scientific journal that this has ever been done. If you are unable to do so then this does not constitute evidence that the Earth is flat.

    On a strictly scientific, objective basis you have not provided proof, but merely unsubstantiated conjecture and rumour. I am certainly not convinced by those arguments. Nor should any thinking scientist.

    It is obvious the world truly is flat. Not only that but it is sitting on three giant elephants and a turtle, which are standing on... a bigger earth, which is on three more elephants and a turtle, which are standing on... etc.
    Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. -Spoon Boy

    I suppose that this is meaningful other than being a major rant.

    Nope, just a rant, not much meaningful about it. Unless you're into psychology. Either way hermes.

    Let's not forget that navigation instrumentation is built with the flawed techniques of round-earth assumptions. You may think you're travelling in a "straight" line but you are actually not.
    Most of the people at that site don't believe in flat-earth. I was actually the top poster there for quite a while but I quit going there, and I only identified maybe 2-3 people who I thought really believed in flat earth.
    The newer crew of flat-earthers seems to have their arguments down better than the ones I dealt with - the standard "why does a sailboat go down" and "why is the shadow of the earth round during eclipses" type of stuff doesn't work.
    Of course, this constitutes evidence:


    But they dismiss stuff like that as fake/conspiracy. One time someone posted this:


    as proof that Naboo (from Star Wars) was round by the same standard of evidence. Funny stuff

    I have devised an experiment to prove the earth is flat:

    1. Take an ordinary carpenter's level.

    2. Walk outside.

    3. Place the level on the ground.

    4. observe that there is no curvature in the ground.

    5. conclude that the earth is flat.

    Counter evidence:

    1. make a level 100 miles long
    2. find 100 miles of flat ground
    3. place level on ground
    4. observe curvative
    5. conclude the earth is round.

    So to sum up, the majority of them are not serious but taking devil's advocate. The idea of a camera on the moon taking in the earth for a whole day would fail because it would be faked. Or the atmosphere is warping the vision. An alternate argument for the sail thing is this:
    Why can't you take a powerful set of binoculars and see all the boats in the ocean if its flat?
    It seems the world is full of people like that, same butt ugly minds, differant rant, like the moon landing fake conspiritors, you know the ones who are making a nice living on the moon landing fake books that someone somewhere, like Art Bell, will always buy and someone somewhere will always hire these jerks to give a "seminar".
    Or Creationists. Now there's a happy crowd, eh.

    Actually, according to a few people who have been a part of this community: It's a gigantic joke. While there are those who believe this insane claim, the majority appears to just follow along like it's a gigantic joke. This is why they *ignore* evidence that completely disproves the whole thing, like TheFlyingSpahgettiMonster and his posts.
