Is This the 2nd Biggest Conspiracy of All?

flat-earth

The re-emergence of the Flat Earth theory is challenging everything we thought we knew. Could it really be true? Above is a possible representation of a flat earth, with the Arctic at the center and the Antarctic a giant wall of ice on the circumference.

The recent rise of the Flat Earth Movement

and those pushing the flat earth theory has taken the webosphere and blogosphere by storm. It is, I would say, the 2nd biggest conspiracy of all. The interest has apparently been started and spearheaded by Matthew Boylan, former NASA contractor, and Eric Dubay, author of The Flat Earth Conspiracy. The idea of a flat earth has now attracted and converted some high-profile names, such as Andrew Basiago, the man who claims he teleported to Mars as part of Project Pegasus in the 1960s and 1970s. Basiago, by the way, revealed in this interview with Lisa Harrison that he intends to join the 2016 presidential race! Imagine the exposure a mass audience would receive if Basiago could start delving into topics such as teleportation, Mars colonies, extraterrestrials and the flat earth theory …

For the record, I am not saying I believe the Earth is flat, but I am open to the possibility. Clearly, more investigation needs to be done, and it would be wisest to admit we don’t know something rather than proceed as if we did – especially when the conspiracy cuts so deep and the deception has infiltrated every area of our lives. Socrates, the father of philosophy, showed that questions are more powerful than answers; indeed, his questions were so powerful that the leaders of Athens put him to death for them.

Let us never be afraid to ask questions – it is the only way we can learn and be truly sure of things.

Whatever the answer turns out to be, the idea that the Earth on which we all live could indeed be flat has ignited intense curiosity and healthy debate – and has already shaken people out of their apathy and generated critical thinking. This in itself is a victory for freedom, because once enough people start to question their reality in every way, the conspiracy will collapse, being only held up by deception and subterfuge.

It Sounds Crazy, but Open Your Mind …

Virtually everyone who first comes to the subject of flat earth (myself included) is thinking: “Flat earth? Are you serious? You must be kidding. That’s crazy! Don’t waste my time. That Makia Freeman guy has really gone off the deep end this time …” I know, I know. That’s how I first reacted to this topic. Let’s face it: we’re all conditioned to believe the world is arranged in a certain way. Right from the moment we go to school around age 5, we are shown miniature globes of the world and told the Earth is a ball. Our society makes fun of people we perceive to be crazy or behind the times by deriding them as “people who still think the world is flat.”

But how do you know the Earth is a globe? Only because you were told so by your teacher, who was told by someone else, who was told by someone else, who was told by someone else, who was told by some “authority” or “expert”. We already know the tendency humanity has for worshipping those outside of itself, for unquestioning obedience to authority, especially other people in uniform, white coats or black robes. Somewhere along the way as a child, you were probably shown some books with photographs, but as has been well exposed, space photos and videos are easily faked, as Freemason- and Nazi-controlled NASA knows very well. Those at the very top of the pyramid, who control the media, publishing houses and the education curriculum, do have the means to pull of such a grand deception.

Is Flat Earth the Mother of All Conspiracies?

Whether we live on a flat earth or globe earth is not some passing fad of little importance. If we have been deceived into thinking the earth is a globe when it is really flat, it conclusively proves just how easily we can be hoodwinked into believing lies and absurdities on a colossal scale. If we have been massively fooled about the very planet on which we live, we could have been fooled on any other topic in existence.

Is the debate over the flat earth the biggest conspiracy or the “Mother of all Conspiracies”? Not quite, in my opinion. It’s huge: I’d call it the 2nd biggest conspiracy. The biggest conspiracy though is forgetting Who We Are – infinitely creative, spiritual beings having a brief human journey – and allowing other entities to siphon off our life energy. This includes the issue of what happens when we die (i.e. whether we are forcibly recycled at the point of death through a soul net). Flat earth is a close second, but ultimately, the two issues are connected; authors such as James of the WingMakers have joined the two in their work (e.g. by describing our world as the Hologram of Deception and describing the phenomenon of forced reincarnation). The notion that we are entrapped in some kind of holographic quarantine is highly disturbing, yet deserves our full attention.

What is the Flat Earth Model?

The flat earth model contends that the Earth exists on a giant, flat plane, with the Arctic or North Pole at the center, and a giant wall of ice (the Antarctic) surrounding the entire disc and forming the circumference. The implication of this is that we live in a giant dome, and that “space” as we know it does not exist, and that all the planets and stars we see at night are like projections on the ceiling of a planetarium.

Let’s take a look now at the points for and against the flat earth model.

Points For the Flat Earth Model

Lack of visible or measurable curvature: The horizon looks flat to the eye. Researchers have claimed that the skyline of cities such as New York City and Philadelphia are visible 40-60 miles away from the ground – and Oahu is visible from Kauai at ground level 108 miles away – when the alleged curvature of the Earth should not permit them to be seen. The famous Bedford Canal experiment performed in 1838 by Samuel Rowbotham showed that a canoe or small boat was visible from 6 miles away along a river (when the curvature of the earth should have rendered it invisible below the horizon or line of sight). Is this light refraction or evidence of a flat earth?

Lack of discernible spin: When an airborne plane is trying to land, if the earth were really spinning, it should be difficult for the plane to land. It would be landing on a moving target. Yet no planes appear to have trouble doing this or use a spinning earth in their calculations. Why not?

Admiral Byrd’s Antarctic expedition: Admiral Richard E. Byrd was a courageous explorer who earnt the trust of the US Government. They sent him down to Antarctica on a military mission in 1947. He reported that in Antarctica he ran into UFOs – “vehicles which could travel from one pole to the other in less than an hour” as he wrote in his diary – and found his way into the center of the earth, “inner earth”, where the temperature was warm, vegetation grew and a Nordic race of people lived. Remember, this was a hardened, rational military man writing such things. In this video interview, he also reveals that beyond the South Pole there was still much of Antarctica left unexplored (an area the size of the USA in fact). After this Governments of the world joined forces and made Antarctica off limits and all trips there highly regulated. Why?

The problem of the Sun’s heat: If the sun is really 93 million miles away, how does its heat travel through space (an apparent vacuum) to reach us? Can space conduct or transfer heat? If not, can the atmosphere of Earth take the sun’s light and transform it into heat? If so, how does that work? Has it been proven beyond all doubt?

– The problem of the Sun’s light: Sometimes you can see the sun’s rays coming in at wide angles. How could this be if they were all coming from 93 million miles away? From that distance they are essentially parallel. Does the atmosphere disperse them? If so, how? Has this been proven beyond all doubt?

Strangeness around Southern Hemisphere flights: Why are there so few direct flights in the Southern Hemisphere? Why do planes flying from places like Sydney (Australia) to Johannesburg (South Africa) routinely go via places like Dubai in the Middle East, which is completely off course and out of the way? The direct flight would be around 12 hours and planes have enough fuel to do this without needing to stop. Why are planes’ GPS turned off during Southern Hemisphere flights, so that their exact trajectories can not be easily tracked?

Points Against the Flat Earth Model

Photographic evidence: Some researchers have stated that almost all the spherical images we have of Earth are patched-together composites. However, that is “almost”. How do you explain the existing spherical images we have of Earth, such as this high-definition one?

Faking of all space flights, space station and space footage: We know how much fakery has gone with space footage, whether it’s NASA’s dubious photos and videos of the moon landings or the fake ISS (International Space Station) footage, some showing people wearing scuba gear. China got in on the act too, as can be seen with this bubble escaping the “astronaut’s” or swimmer’s helmet. But given how much footage is out there, can 100% of it be fake?

Satellites: How does the flat earth model deal with satellites? Do they exist or are they faked?

– Varying star constellations: You can see constellations in the Southern Hemisphere that you can’t see in the Northern Hemisphere, and vice versa. How is this possible on a flat earth?

Other celestial bodies: Other celestial bodies appear to be globes, such as the Moon and the Sun, not to mention other planets. Why are they spheres and the earth is not?

The existence of extraterrestrials: Can the flat earth model support existence of extraterrestrials? How do they fit into the equation? Are other planets not globes or planets as such, but rather other discrete and enclosed holograms which can be linked by sophisticated technological travel? Basiago has changed his story now and thinks he did not necessarily go to the planet “Mars” but rather an SQE (Synthetic Quantum Environment), an artificial holographic planetary domain that he was told was Mars.

Whistleblower Randy Cramer/Captain K: How do we reconcile the flat earth with Randy Cramer who claims he was on a spaceship and literally saw it fly off into space, from the Moon to Mars?

Center of gravity: On a flat plane, isn’t the center of gravity at the center of the plane? If so, then when we fall, why are we pulled straight down to the ground rather than towards the center (the North Pole in the flat earth model)?

The Catholic Church supported the flat earth: The Catholic Church has been a leader throughout the last 2000 years of suppressing information, keeping people scared and ignorant, and ruling through fear and guilt. It is highly strange and out of character, therefore, that when it comes to this issue of flat earth, that the Church would be on the side of the truth. The Church killed (or condemned) at least 3 people for proposing the heliocentric model (Copernicus, Galileo, Giordano Bruno). If flat earth were true, why would the Church kill or condemn those proposing a false model when it has a history of hiding the truth?

Could the Earth be Both Flat and a Globe?

Finally, I will end this article by quoting Project Camelot’s Kerry Cassidy on the flat earth subject. She wrote:

In my view the “flat earth” people are simply seeing things in a hyper dimensional (collapsing the wave) mode. They are seeing a Planet “plane-net” from the point of view that reduces everything out of the hologram view into a sort of continuum of unlimited horizons viewed condensed, as in, down to the “thought” of source vs. the multi-dimensional aspects which allow you and I to navigate and go deeper into the quantum moment for the purpose of ‘experiencing the whole’.

It is similar to the way we view time. We see time as linear when it is actually simultaneous. In reality, time is an illusion. All things happen simultaneously. Well, if space is viewed the same way you could in essence say there is no space … space is an illusion or hologram. Everything it is at the same time infinite and infinitesimal and can be reduced to a single point … zero point or simultaneity.”

As David Icke, the late Michael Talbot (who wrote The Holographic Universe), some Western scientists and many others have said, the world is a giant hologram, that looks, feels, smells, tastes and seems like something solid, but is actually mostly empty space made from energy vibrating at a slow rate. We live in a giant version of the Holodeck on Star Trek. Quantum physics has shown us that the atom can appear as a particle (matter) or a wave (energy) and displays characteristics of both simultaneously. The wave is all possibility until it “collapses” (due to our observation and intent) into a particle and solidifies.

Is it possible that flat earth people are looking at the “wave” aspect of the atom rather than the “particle” aspect? Could the Earth be flat on an unlimited plane, until it collapses into particle form and becomes a sphere?

It is an open question that remains to be solved, but meanwhile, it is greatly encouraging to see people taking such an active part in questioning everything around them, because it is only by asking the right questions that we can gain freedom from ignorance and enslavement.

    If Gravitational Wave Theory supports a flat Earth it is an issue of quantum composition only. Those who supported the Flat Earth paid people who knew better to lie about it. Cosmas Indicopleustas got a Nestorian priesthood or ecclesiastical position near to the Tartar women most Catholic prelates paid top dollar to the Polos to get.

    Bishop Ussher got Bishoprics like York or Bede the great liar and historical forger’s old stomping grounds while he drew maps to diminish the Celtic Church which was still large and in charge and telling truth or helping people do good acts rather than the Roman or Pauline Popery that usurped people’s souls and charged to get admittance to the fictional place called Heaven. Pope John Paul II admitted (in 1999) that they created Heaven and Hell along with apologizing for “two millennia of heinous acts”.

        The idea of a flat Earth is found in many cultures and traditions. According to this video:

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U55UDzNCSAE

        the Babylonians, Sumerians, Chaldeans, Egyptians, Ancient Vedics and Hebrews as well as Native American Indians, Mayans and Incas all believed in a flat, stationary, earth-centered universe. Buddhism teaches the world is “maya” or an illusion. I really don’t think the flat Earth has anything at all to do with Islam.

      Here is how i see it, the earth maybe be both flat and a sphere at the same time. If anyone has watched the tv series Under The Dome, they will generally get the idea. As mentioned , some people believe that we live in a holographic universe, which is highly possible due to studies on the theory of relativity, giving rise to the possibility of dimensions. the earth could be a flat plane encompassed by a dome like spherical structure all around. following the flat earth theory, the end of the earth could be antartictica as an ice boundary, but here comes the work of the dome, the dome that covers the earth maybe in place to give earth a holographic spherical appeearance, generating a reality that we see as the earth being totally spherical, but not considering the fact that it is flat plain covered by a spherical dome

    Some of the arguments for a flat earth are compelling. There was a time in my life when I actually bought into it. However, we have enough photography and microscopy now to understand that God makes things round. Of course there is the flat worm, but its cells are round. We have agreed as a collective that what we see in outer and inner space is round. Sacred geometry and all that. For contemplation sake, let’s all think about world peace and clean politics.

      Hi Bill
      I agree with you with the fact that you say God makes things round. And i do believe Earth is a self sustaining spherical organism, and we are not living on its outer shell, but we are living inside it which is safe and flat. According to Newtonian mechanics if Earth was rotating it would end up becoming a disc because of centrifugal forces.

        It’s rotating at only 0.0007rpm.. Centrifugal force is almost negligible at such a slow angular velocity… There’s just enough to account for the slightly flattened sphere the Earth actually is.

            basic geometry enlightens us as to these facts… we know the diameter of the Earth, so we know the circumference. We know how long it takes for the earth to revolve once around its axis, so it is a simple matter to calculate how long it takes to revolve in one minute.

      Problem is,no matter what part of the world you are in, you always violate the Pythagorean theorum. You never see a curve. Even at 73 miles up, no curve is seen. And why do you fly at 35000 ft for 3 hours without nose diving or deceleration to compensate for the curve. Even the artificial horizon never moves and remains constant. At 600 mph youd have travelled 1800 miles. Without compensating for a curve, youd be in the ionosphere by then.

        June 9, 2016 at 5:45 pm

        That is easy david. Gravity and air density. At 35000 ft the gravitational pull and air density are virtually the same no matter where you are on earth. Once you establish cruising altitude with the power and flaps set at a certain position, the plane will automatically follow the curvature of the earth. To increse altitude as you suggest should happen naturally, you would have to increase power.

        give it some thought, the plane is in the atmosphere, why would it be immune to gravitational pull.

    The basic foundation of the Flat Earth hypothesis is ignorance. Blatant, astounding ignorance. Ignorance of basic scientific facts, of history, of the philosophy of science and its actual practice. Even calling it a Theory is a demonstration of just how unfamiliar flat earthers are with science.

    We don’t need to be open minded and considerate of every bit of nonsense that crosses our path. Some things are so obviously wrong that we can dismiss them with only the briefest consideration. The demonstrations of a oblate-spheroid earth are numerous. They can easily be observed by the naked eye from the Earth’s surface.

    The Flat Earth model isn’t able to explain even the most basic phenomena like the constant size of the sun throughout the day, sunrises and sets, and the different times of day experienced simultaneously throughout the world. Their model denies the validity of the scientific system while vaguely imitating it to gain a veneer of respectability. It requires a denial not just of the moon landings but of all space exploration, centuries of study of our solar system, celestial navigation, and basic logic.

    That you would entertain such views isn’t terribly surprising given the nature of your website. But it is disappointing.

      Thanks for your comment. Perhaps it is wisest to admit we don’t know certain things. As Socrates said, true knowledge is knowing that you don’t know. The Universe is a mystery, and it doesn’t always reveal its mysteries to us easily. Those of a rigidly scientific mindset love it when people like Newton and Einstein come along with their “theories” which seemed so great and rock solid at the time – but now, centuries later, we can see they were good attempts but are full of holes nonetheless. Mainstream science likes to pretend it knows everything, and can map everything with its formulae, all the while making massive assumptions which underpin all these formulae – including the invention of certain constants and other figures to balance its equations!

      I don’t think a denial of the moon landings is the biggest problem the Flat Earth model has, although if you are familiar with the incredibly lies and deceit of NASA as well as Stanley Kubrick’s involvement in the fakery (see Jay Weidner’s articles on this), you will know just how fake they were. The flat earth models I have seen do account for the different times of day experienced simultaneously throughout the world, and could also account for space exploration and celestial navigation.

      Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance, as Einstein said.

      Sun does shrink when it nears the horizon, but it seems large because of light scattering. This fact can be observed by paying attention to car headlights as they approach us from the distance they do appear as large as the car.
      If you look at a few sunsets in the ocean you will see that Sun’s reflection on the water at distance is pretty small compared to the Sun.

    I’m just beginning to consider the “Flat Earth” supposition of reality, so excuse me, if my argument has already been addressed by flat earthers.

    The explanation of a flat earth fails to take into account the variation between night and day that is experienced in the world. If the earth were completely flat, the light emanating from the sun (no matter the size or distance of the sun) would be gradiently present accros the whole of the earth at any given time, since it (the earth) is flat and laid out as a plane in front of the source of light. Yes based on the location of the sun the lighting would be varied at different places on earth, but still present. The flat earth concept doesn’t explain how one part of the earth is completely dark at one time and another part is brilliantly illuminated at the same time.

    The globe earth however can easily explain this, by the concept that the phase of the earth globe directly facing the sun is bright and the opposite phase shadowed from the sun, by the earth itself is dark.

    I can’t see how a flat earth concept can explain this.

    Thanks

      People are posting videos faster than anyone could keep up! There are many showing the sun over one part of the world, illuminating that part, and the rays of light not reaching the other parts, which are in darkness (night-time). Here is one example of many:

        The moon rotates around the earth, the sun does not. I don’t see how flat earth can explain that. It only works if the earth is a sphere. Look up a graphic to better explain that one.

        The global model explains it just fine, but most people don’t understand how the phases of the moon work. They have nothing to do with the earth’s shadow and have everything to do with the angle that sunlight is reaching the moon. Sometimes we can’t see the moon at night because it is below the horizon. At these times the other side of the planet can see the moon during the day. The opposite holds true for when we can see it during the day. The fact that the moon travels around the earth at a different rate than the earth rotates if the reason for this. Never seeing it during the day would lend more credence to the FE model than seeing it.

    The flat earth theory is so easily disproved it is childish. You just need to observe , with your own eyes, the sunrise and set and the moon cycles to KNOW everything is moving in spherical cyclical motions. 95 % of all conspiracy whistle blowers and theories are BULLSHIT. They even attract entities that feed of those that buy into them all. Humans really need to grow up and start understanding that watching videos on youtube or listening to radio shows is NOT the same as research or learning anything. You are opening yourself up to liars and vampires. Ask your local 10 year old to do the shadow and stick experiment. Go up in an aeroplane or balloon. Jeez. Truthers are such mugs.

      It’s important to keep an open mind in the face of new information. Here is a well-done presentation showing that the current Globe Earth theory model cannot account for the apparent lack of curvature on the Earth. According to that theory, you should not be able to see Oahu from Kauai, yet you can:

      If you really think about it, in a globe model of the earth you would never look straight out at the horizon in an airplane. If the earth is curved you would always have to look down at the horizon at airplane altitude. Another thing is that pilots would have to constantly change their altitude lower to account for the curvature yet they don’t. “cruising at 35,000 feet for 4 hours” would not be possible unless they wanted to go into space! Also, if the earth was spinning 1000 miles/hr then flights going against that would take longer than flights going with the spin.

      We all seem to know these things but disregard them when it comes to this discussion.

        Planes cruise without changing because of gravity. Gravity is a constant pulling force on the plane, that’s why it has to use the engines to stay in the air.

          Listen this excuse of planes attaining to the supposed curve of the earth by gravity is pure bullshit. The planes thrusts are obviously much more powerful than any pull to the earth by gravity so yes unless gravity magically changes its pull planes on a curved earth the plane flying would need to constantly adjust its nose downwards. That’s not how they fly. So the earth is flat period and as long as you believe its a globe proves how brainwashed you must be. Wake up

        “pilots would have to constantly change their altitude lower to account for the curvature yet they don’t. “cruising at 35,000 feet for 4 hours” would not be possible unless they wanted to go into space!”

        It takes energy input to overcome gravity – if one cruises at 35,000 feet one is staying 35,000 feet from the earth’s surface, so one’s trajectory follows the curvature of the earth. If one wants to go higher you have to adjust the plane’s heading and input energy via the engines.

        How would cruising work on a flat earth – is gravity conceived of as fundamentally different/acting less powerfully on moving objects? Otherwise it seems like a flat earth would make cruising at constant velocity impossible as the plane would still move in an arc relative to the planet (horizontal velocity + gravitational force) but the ground does not ‘drop away’. I suppose you could argue that planes are really powered by some kind of secret free energy technology, so engaging auto-pilot actually angles the plane slightly upwards and engages the secret secondary engines to maintain altitude, without using any fuel so as not to give the game away.

        “Also, if the earth was spinning 1000 miles/hr then flights going against that would take longer than flights going with the spin.”

        You’re forgetting that the plane starts on the ground, spinning at 1000 miles/hr with the world. It doesn’t have to input any energy to ‘catch up’ with the world; its net velocity will always be relative to its starting point, whatever direction it travels. The only thing it has to contend with is wind patterns caused by the direction of spin, which do exist and have to be taken into account.

        Now, it IS possible to do a full transformation of physics that will yield a flat earth model; in this model light would have to move in increasingly acute upwards parabolae the further from the surface of the Earth it travels, all objects moving at constant speed parallel to the Earth’s surface would be subject to an antigravitational coriolis force, Antarctica would be infinitely large and all matter would increase in size to infinity the closer it got to the South Pole then reappear on the other side of the world (which would mean you could still orbit the earth, circumnavigate the poles, etc.). Look into Abdelkader’s Geocosmos thought experiment for how Special Relativity can be used to construct highly unusual universal models. However, worth noting that by definition such a model is no more privileged than any other unusual transformation (indeed, because of the large number of inertial forces it would need to invoke it is demonstrably worse). Geocentrists in particular are fond of confusing ‘possible to construct a coherent model using special relativity’ with ‘evidence in favour of’.

    A note to the author, I am perplex as to why so many people believe in the flat earth theory. I think it is because they happen to be religious and for a long time have had issues reconciling the religious view vs secular view, now that a handful of “researchers” want to use old data and “interpret” this data to be what ever it is they want it to be to fit with their own agenda then the rest of people that lack an education in the sciences go along with it because the data shown the way they wanted to look looks to be true. There is plenty of resentment towards the current status quo to go around so it is not a huge leap of faith to go along with the flat earthers since the bible and most old religious texts mention this.
    To your question about a weather balloon observing a flat earth, it’s because it is still too low to the ground, you need to be up higher, the ISS is 5 times higher than a balloon, and the earth still look enormously close, but a curvature is noticeable.
    Why are there not a lot of pictures of earth… If you understand that
    a. 1lb of weight is 10,000 to get to space
    b.Propellant is limited
    c.orbits are maximized because of lack propellant
    Then it becomes easy to understand that
    a. no one is going to fund a mission just to grab a few pictures of a round earth.
    b. Resources not used for the explicit purpose of the satellite mission can get someone fired or cause whatever they are doing to be defunded or worse.
    c. satellites that study the earth have a polar orbit and are too close to capture the full earth so they take slices which are then stitched together.
    There is no dome over the earth.. period.. how is it that asteroids have no problem reaching us? How is it that we can detect x-ray and gamma ray radiation from the farthest reaches of space, yet some flat earthers claim that the superpowers (USA & USSR) tried to blow up the dome repeatedly with nuclear weapons but failed.
    How is it that everything’s we see sun, moon, stars, planetoids, most asteroids take on spherical shapes past a certain size? (gravitational attraction) The laws of physics would all fall apart if the flat earth were true, but yet we are able to determine the lunar and solar eclipses because we know the orbits of these heavenly bodies.
    As you stated already the Flat-earthers can’t explain retrograde motion except to say that it is the design of the creator….yes this is the new resurgence of the creationist movement in sheeps clothing, or a coin tel pro operation to discredit all the researchers and conspiracy theorists.
    Additional note, please recall that flat earthers mention ad nauseum the new world order/masons et al however the first world order has been and always will be religion. So when they try to justify the reasons as to why the secular world is a fraud and why religion is the truth, please recall they are merely substituting one system of control for another.
    Addendum: I wonder how these “researchers” would try to explain away Einstien rings, showing light being bent around large gravitational fields, that alone would make half their theory fall flat!
    Lastly: What is more probable, that this flat earth theory already debunked a long time ago and proven by navigators such as Magellan, and the scientific community through all the natural sciences (meteorology, astronomy, physics,quantum physics, geology, astrophysics) and the million of man-hours that have gone into researching, inventing, programming is wrong? Or that flat earther’s have a religious agenda?
    Bonus points, the earth does spin at about 1000 mile per hour, so does everything else on it. get on a train, everyone else is moving at your same speed, take a jump, you don’t move forward because you, the air around you, and the train travel all together, speed is relative. (I can’t even believe this is one of their main points!)
    Lets stop the de-evolution. Because we worked pretty hard to get here.

      2. How do you know it NEVER gets into a position to take a photo of the entire “globe”?
      3. How do you know satellites NEVER take a non-polar orbit?

      You are right that some proposing the flat earth model have a religious/creationist agenda. However, I don’t think all of them do.

        1. Because you can see it on any clear night with a decent store bought telescope.
        2. Because it is in orbit. It is always at the same altitude, so it is never far enough away to take a picture. That is kind of the definition of what a satellite or space station does. It uses the Earth’s gravity to keep it at a certain altitude with minimal expendature of energy. The amount of energy necessary for it to constantly be changing altitude would make it unsustainable.
        3. Kind of the same answer as number 2. Non-polar orbits are much more difficult to maintain and require more energy.

      You say NASA can’t afford missions to space just to get photographs but…there were 5771 photographs taken in the combined time of 4834 minutes during the six apollo missions.

      Outside of setting up the lunar rover and shooting 5 photos every 4 minutes, they had very little time for anything else.

      Those amateur photographers managed to take an unprecedented amount of perfectly framed and perfectly exposed photographs with chest-mounted Hasselblad 500EL cameras with no viewfinders, no light meter, shot on regular Kodak 160 ISO film.

      (specs on the camera: http://www.photoethnography.com/ClassicCameras/Hasselblad500el.html)

      This is a very heavy camera that was mostly used for studio work on a tripod. Its not a very good handheld camera because of the weight needed to run the first autoload system.

      This equates to;

      Apollo 11……..one photo every 15 seconds
      Apollo 12……..one photo every 27 seconds
      Apollo 14……..one photo every 62 seconds
      Apollo 15……..one photo every 44 seconds
      Apollo 16……..one photo every 29 seconds
      Apollo 17……..one photo every 26 seconds

      If you notice, by apollo 17 they were taking more than 2 photos a minute but they also spent 4 hours 26 min in the Lunar Rover driving 22.3 miles around the moon.

      In fact, they spent lots of time driving around taking selfies on the last 3 trips because that is all they had time to do. Apollo 16 = 16.5 miles in 3 h 26 m Apollo 15 17.25 miles in 3h02m. Those were busy guys taking those perfectly framed perfectly lit photos. Uh-oh, Houston, we have a problem…the moon is very dark…How dark?

      Ask the astronauts (who aren’t really photographers): “When astronauts walked on the surface, they reported that it was dark grey, the color of pavement. Because of its dark color and bumpy surface, it only reflects about 12% of the light that hits it.”

      This darkness presents a huge problem since NASA admits that artificial light was not taken or used on the moon. Light and shadow work in specific ways that photographers have spent a long time understanding. I am a photographer…in photography we have a rule:

      *Sunny 16 Rule: If it’s a typical sunny day, usually summer, with a cloud or two in the sky with strong shadows, you will set your camera’s f-stop to f/16 and a shutter speed of 1/ISO.

      Where you would need to be to shoot those pics on the moon with that camera were not possible. The hasselblad had a minimum f stop of 5.6 and a clunky shutter…with 160 ISO film you would need a 1 second shutter at f4, but that long of an exposure would have to be on a tripod, not strapped to some guys chest in zero gravity…with the shutter open for that long, every shot would be blurry.

Where in the world are you getting this figure? It’s nowhere near true. Apollo 11 ALONE had a mission time of ~12,000 minutes.

        If the earth were a flat plane, then the centre of mass would be vertically under the “North Pole”.
        That would mean people near the edge of the world would be leaning over, because gravity at those locationss would not be acting perpendicular to the ground.
        Speaking as a person who is near enough to Antarctica that it used to qualify as a local rather than a toll call, I can confirm that gravity does act perpendicular to the ground, even this close to the edge.

      As for your link re: Eratosthenes, couldn’t a flat, round Earth with the sun in different positions on a flat, round plane, also cast shadows of different lengths with sticks in different positions? Seems like Eratosthenes only proved the Earth was round, not necessarily spherical …

    Aloa I watched the video that you posted the link for, in which the person/entity expressed its dissatisfaction? at thinking of the earth as flat as opposed to round. I have been researching this flat earth proposal and have found that there never has actually been actual proof that the world is round, and also that agencies like NASA have produced fake information and images (moon landings) and videos (International Space Station) concerning the earth, moon, sun etc. You would have to investigate this yourself to see the proof of this, but much material is on the internet. What I would like to say is that it doesn’t matter if you believe the earth is flat or round, there has never been actual evidence that it is round, but there is evidence that it is flat and not moving. This doesn’t seem to depend on anyone’s belief as you will not experience the earth as round no matter what you believe. This may be because the Creator God is projecting the earth and universe as Paramahamsa Yogananda perceived in his spiritual experience that he documented in Biography of a Yogi. As in the video you referred to, the being stated that everything is round or spherical including our human bodies. This may be so in the spiritual sense (I have actually perceived my own body as energy in the shape of an egg, not quite a perfect sphere) but I perceive my body in the physical world as a bi-pedal (2 arms and legs) body that is not spherical at all. I believe this is the same as the earth. It may have a spherical spiritual body but the physical body is somewhat different. At least, the land that we reside on is fairly flat but there is a border that we have not gone beyond and it also appears that no one has been able to travel higher than 100K feet above the earth. But here is one simply proof that the world is not a round planet orbiting the sun: I live in Calgary Alberta Canada that is at 52 degrees latitude above the equator. Now in Calgary June 21st (summer solstice) is the day of the year where we get the most hours of sunlight (16 hours). Scientists explain that this is because the earth is tilted 23.4 degrees so in June we are tilted toward the sun and so as the earth rotates we are in the sun longer and have a longer day. Now there is what is called the ecliptic plane which is the plane along which the earth revolves around the sun. This plane is at 23.4 degrees north or the equator (look this up as I can’t really explain this easily without a picture) and when you are standing on the ecliptic plane the sun will be directly overhead. IF you are south of the ecliptic plane you will see the sun in the north part of the sky. If you are north of the ecliptic plane you will see the sun in the south part of the sky. As I have practiced sun gazing a few years ago I started noticing the sun a lot more in the summer. What I have seen is that the sun will move across the northern part of the sky above Calgary in the summer (approx 20-30 degress north of straight overhead. This is impossible according to the globe earth model since I am almost 30 degrees north of the ecliptic plane and should only see the sun in the southern part of the sky in the summer. So the globe model is invalid. But what is the true model? Evidence that the surface of the earth we move around on is flat; experiments that show the earth doesn’t move; and I have also seen clouds behind the sun when sun gazing this past summer so the sun is closer and smaller than science tells us. These are not phenomenon that I am creating from my belief since I didn’t know about the sun’s position relative to the ecliptic plane until a month or two ago, long after the summer months have passed. Anyway, this is a much longer post than I expected to write. I hope this opens you up to other possibilities at least. Thank you!

    If the earth was flat, to get from east to west would take roughly 40 hours to travel west to get to california, however, heading east, it only take 5 hours. Proof..its round

The response of ridicule to the questions of a Flat Earther is worrying and both scary. It demonstrates how deep the brainwashing of the human “sub-conscious mind” actually is. I compare it to the prisoner in a cell who holds his own cell door key but no matter how much encouragement he is offered to set himself free adamantly refuse’s As much as he wants to be free to free himself without permission is a crime that he dare not commit. Such obedience is truly remarkable. I feel compelled to leave the prisoner in his miserable state of ignorance. Otherwise when they eventually see the light they and their pathetic brainwashed attitude will give true Flat Earthers a very bad name. Let them keep their Sphere/Oblate-Spheroid/Pear-shaped Earth. NASA’s alleged photos show a perfect sphere and now they are verbally telling you it’s not a Sphere but a different shape.

Our planet is round and corkscrewing through space like a tail for our home star.

For those who don’t understand aircraft flight, pilots/autopilots have long relied on an altimeter, which measures altitude according to barometric pressure. GPS uses satellites. But the plane’s altitude is being adjusted all the time. (It’s called trim stabilization.) Lastly, I would love to hear a Flat Earther explain the “green flash” phenomena that sailors on the open ocean have been observing and recording for hundreds of years. Methinks flat earthers are here to give Truth a bad name. That’s the real conspiracy.

      Yes, yes, yes. Let’s devise an action that will make those conspiracy idiots look really dumb. “Hey, they think no one hit the Twin Towers!” “They think everything is run by reptiles!” “Now they think the world is flat!” “HAHAHA… what idiots.”

      This flat earth stuff is also a huge diversion. Huge. Personally it is over my head and I prefer to dwell upon things I can wrap my head around.

      I thought perhaps I was just not smart enough, metaphysical enough, scientific enough, but to be honest, I have also considered it to be a great exercise in wasting time, at least for someone who has a little common sense and a lot of life to live. But fun for those who pursue it.

    Your claim about no flights over the antarctic is incorrect.

    QF 63 – SYD to JNB
    QF 27 – SYD to SCL

    Both flights fly daily non stop over antarctica to their destination.

    Your claim of “flights from Sydney (Australia) to Johannesburg (South Africa) routinely go via places like Dubai in the Middle East” is also completely inaccurate.

    I work on the aircraft and fly the route regularly.

      Thanks for your comment. Good to hear from someone who works the route. I did not say there were no flights over the Antarctic. I said: “Why are there so few direct flights in the Southern Hemisphere?”

      1. Are flights QF 63 and 27 always non-stop?
      2. Are you sure they fly directly over Antarctica?
      3. How do you explain all the other flights (from one southern hemisphere city to another) that stop in places like Dubai, Dakar (Senegal), etc.? What about all the reports that planes need to refuel – true or not?

    A Flat Earth is an interesting concept that seems pretty easy to prove.

    All you need is for someone to go to the southern tip of Chile with a telescope that has a camera attachment.

    Set up the equipment by pointing it directly south towards Antarctica. If the earth is flat you will be able to see the ice wall and take a picture of it with the telescope.

    And based on the flat earth map, you should also be able to point the telescope due West and take a picture of the ice wall.

    Seems like a simple way to prove your theory, if you are actually interested in proving it.

    Ok now: if it takes 23hrs and 56mins for the earth to make a full spin around it’s axis, why are we following the 24hrs in a day? Again 23hrs and 56mins for the earth to make a full spin – where do these 4mins multiplied by 365 days go? Technically we should be off somewhere during the year and have different sunrise location either from south west or north.

      Imagine the Earth spinning while travelling around the sun. Every roughly 23 hours 56 an observer looking straight up will be facing the same direction and so at night would see the same stars. However they will have moved a little around the sun so if they were observing at noon the sun would appear in a different place and it takes an extra 4 minutes for the sun to be in the same place. Conversely, if you observe the night sky every 24 hours there will be a 4 minute difference which is why different constellations are visible at different times of year. After a year the Earth will be in the same position so the observer will see the same as they did in initially. How about all those 4 minute discrepancies? 4 minutes × 365 is 24 hours. If it’s still not clear try imagining on an Earth that didn’t rotate. An observer would always be facing the same stars but would have one day per year. The same one day discrepancy.

    I am open minded, even to the bizarre, but I cannot accept the flat earth model. A lot of the arguments seem to be ‘how could this be true if the earth is a sphere, therefore its flat’. I caution you, even if you are confident the earth is not a sphere, it doesn’t therefore mean it’s flat. There are plethora of other shapes to choose from (unless You have positive evidence that it’s flat, not just challenges to spherical models). Could it be a convex dome/hemisphere?

    Anyway, I am happy people are open minded enough to challenge deeply held assumptions, that’s science! But, make sure your conclusions are scientific as well.

    I wonder how a flat earth model could account for Alaska having 24hr daylight and 24hr darkness while other parts of the world don’t experience this.

    Other ways you could test the flat earth hypothesis yourself…

    Call somebody on the opposite side of the global earth at midnight and ask them if it’s day or night. Very simple.

    Look at energy consumption and internet traffic data. There are known spikes in internet activity after kids get out of school: energy consumption goes down during the night. If the earth was flat and the entire world was experiencing daylight, there would be correlating spikes in energy consumption for the entire earth.

    I also wonder about the magnetic field, if the north pole is in the center of the flat disk model, is the entire circumference the south pole or the underside of the disk?

    Another thing to consider and ponder, is the Coriolis effect. North of the equator water even hurricanes rotate clockwise, south of the equator they rotate counter-clockwise. No hurricane has been recorded to occur on or cross the equator. What is the significance of this area on a flat earth model and why is this area generally hotter, especially considering the Sun would be closest to the edge (during sunrise and sunset)?

    Another consideration is a lunar eclipse, shouldn’t they be visible to the whole earth at the same time?

    Look through them at the sky.

    The only way it’s possible to believe that is if you know nothing about radio waves and have never been on a high altitude plane or looked through a telescope at the right things. You can SEE the international space station, past shuttle flights, you can image satellites going overhead with a large enough tracking telescope. You can send directional radio signals to the amateur radio transceiver on the international space station and have it become available or not depending how well your antenna is aimed.

The Earth may or may not turn out to be “flat”, but the current model cannot account for many observable anomalies. At the same time, the fact earth model may not be able to account for satellites (if they truly exist) and other things. We are in the middle of an open-minded investigation.

        Could you point me toward experts in the related fields that either question the oblate spheroid earth or support a flat earth model?

        Of course the shape isn’t that complex to test, but if we disregard any space photography of the earth, then figuring out the Earths shape becomes more involved. Lay people, even fairly educated ones, are probably not capable of grappling with the complexity of the dynamics involved. Lay people, both for or against these models, simply have to submit to authorities in the field. Superficially, we can make reasonable judgements, but we have to admit severely incomplete knowledge.

        By dynamics involved I mean, the movements of celestial bodies, precession, relative motions, wobbles, angles, distances etc.

        For instance, the Alaskan 24hr day and night cycle is fairly simple given a somewhat spherical model, but on a flat earth model, it would require a lot of physics expertise to attempt a reasonable model.

        There are a lot of areas of science that would be needed to substantiate this model, absent any photographic evidence, geophysics and astrophysics specifically.

        Are you aware of any geo or astrophysicist who proposes the FEM?

    In your breakdown of the evidence against the “flat-earth” model you cite this link (http://gizmodo.com/5909215/this-is-the-definitive-photograph-of-planet-earth) in your question: “How do you explain the existing spherical images we have of Earth, such as this high-definition one?”

    I have to guess you forgot to read the article because it clearly says:

    “The images posted by Gizmodo are a combination of visible and near-infrared wavelengths, so they show the Earth in a way not visible to human eyes (vegetation looks red, for example). They’re not any better or worse than NASA images, but they show different things.”

    How does a “combination of visible and near-infrared wavelengths, so they the earth in a way not visible to human eyes” become a high-definition in your summation? The words “portrait” and “combination” should be your first hint that it is a composite. Do you take photos with your camera phone or does your camera phone combine visible and non-visible (near infrared is not visible in this plane of existence) wavelengths in a way not visible?

    Your second is that the “image” was not taken with a camera. The article states that the image was obtained in “one shot” by Elektro-L, not a camera, but a geostationary weather satellite’s 10 channel imager known as the Multi-Channel Scanning Unit. It never once says that Elektro-L is a camera.

    It does say that NASAs big blue marble is supposed to be a composite of photographs but it never says this new image is anything but a satellite imaged composite from a 10 channel imager that “carries 3 reflected sunlight channels, and 7 thermal infrared channels.”

    The visible channels are not even taking a direct image of the earth, they are imaging sunlight reflecting off the earth. The other channels are measuring heat. What we have here are 7 thermal impressions of the earth reflected back through three visible channels (probably red, blue and yellow filters).

    That image is nothing like the description you gave it.

      The Earth itself doesnt emit much light, so they only way to image it is to capture reflected sunlight, just like your eyes and every smartphone, dslr and digital camera.

      Imager vs Camera, what is the qualitative difference that is relevant here?

      Image Sensors have a limited dynamic range (which is why HDR photography is gaining popularity), so in order to capture more light information, multiple bands of wavelengths are targeted.

    Is The Moon A Dormant Cold Sun
    Over A Slightly Concave Flat Earth?

    Flat Earth researchers have discovered numerous anomalies regarding the Moon that are not taught in science classes. Regardless if you believe either the round or flat earth theory, these are the hidden facts about the Moon.
    1. The Moon has translucent characteristics
    A. Blue sky can been seen in the dark areas of the Moon during the daytime.
    B. Stars are observed in areas of the Moon that are supposed to be dark or in shade (no sunlight) during various phases https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fH7BjIzXWOg
    2. The temperature on the top of a picnic table at night during any phase of the Moon is COLDER than the temperature in the shade underneath the table. These cold temperature waves at night stimulate plant growth such as tomatoes. The light emanating from the Moon is not WARM reflected light rays from the Sun therefore the Moon is logically a light/ electromagnetic generator emanating “cold waves.”
    3. NASA claimed that they put men on the Moon during the Apollo program therefore they solved the problem of transporting humans through the deadly Van Allen radiation belts not only while going to the Moon but also when returning humans from the Moon. However in 2014 NASA released a video regarding the Orion program that plainly states they are diligently “working on” the Van Allen belt problem. Why is NASA working on the problem in 2014 that was supposedly solved during the Apollo program? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51DED8dcNkA Was the Apollo program a fake due the true nature of the Moon? – A translucent cold energy generator with a round flat surface rather than ball shaped with a hard surface containing solid chemical elements?
    Can the cold wave conditions of the Moon increase to the level of a “Cold Sun” thus emanating far more intense lower and pervasive temperature waves?
    Sun/Moon Cycles?
    Sun – male/yang/left spin – red to green spectrum
    Moon – female/yin/right spin – cyan to magenta spectrum
    Active Hot Sun – Dormant Cold Moon or Probable Current Phase
    Deserts, periodic droughts and heat waves and deeper and more pervasive oceans and rivers.
    Dormant Hot Sun – Active Cold Moon
    Ice Age with shallower oceans and less active rivers and no deserts.
    Dormant Hot Sun – Dormant Cold Moon
    Desolation, regeneration and continual plowing under of the surface with volcanoes dominating the land and ocean areas.
    Active Hot Sun – Active Cold Moon
    Reduced ice and very few small desert areas with North Africa, Gobi region and western U.S. lush in water and vegetation.
    Garden of Eden, Shangri-La & Bali Ha’i all rolled into one – supports all sizes and shapes of human, animal and plant life forms including dinosaurs. An eclipse of the Sun by the Moon during this period could trigger significant abrupt geological changes such as the disappearance of Atlantis.
    Each cycle creates specific kinds of chemical elements that hold over to the other cycles.
    Do all cycles have the same duration or do they differ?
    How are the Sun/Moon cycles controlled? – By natural processes or deliberate manipulations by an intelligent and technologically advanced life form therefore requiring a practical rather than an esoteric “god.”
    If our home is a flat plain then the surface of the Earth logically has to be slightly concave (intended) with a massive frozen ice rim on the edges to contain the water.

    There’s no discernible spin? Uh, really? You guys talk a lot about being open-minded and admitting that we don’t know everything. But sometimes I fear you take it so far that you think there’s nothing to know.

    In order to see the truth of the globe model and/or the nature of space, you’re going to need a rudimentary science education. That means some basic math in there as wall

    You need to read about Newton’s Laws and The Laws of Thermodynamics. And you don’t have to believe what you read – after you understand their claims then you should devise some simple experiments to test out their claims. When you have seen that they are true, you will be able to cross out about half of the above reasons.

    The reason why globe earthers tend to mock flat earthers is that we’ve alll done this work back in high school. Earlier for some of us.

    I know it probably feels unfair to you but the truth is that we’re not all on even playing field in terms of knowledge. You guys don’t know enough to even have any idea how much you don’t know. You’re oblivious to the existence of all kinds of argument and subtleties that come naturally to the rest of us.

    So here’s what it’s like from our perspective: imagine that all of the globe earthers were blind and all of the flat earthers were sighted. And for years and years, we blind GE’s have been hearing about people like Picasso, Rothko, Monet, Van Gogh… but we can’t see what you’re talking about.. we lack the fundamental ability… (our blindness = your lack of mathematics knowledge0 ..
    so we decided one day that enough is enough and we declare that these painting must not exist. when you say that they do and you have seen them we call you a liar and accuse you of beinh paid to contradict us! we concoct elaborate conspiracy fantasies involving like half of the global population In that situation, you would say “but i have seen these painting” And we would say things like you probably saw a cloud and mistook it for a painting. And eventually you would you just laugh at how little we knew.

    The world is indeed flat and thermal imaging does prove it. It’s one thing for both sides of the argument to fling “evidence” at each other but it’s a whole other ball game when one side has that golden dagger to scientifically conclusively prove it’s case.

    Despite flat earth evidence being impossible to debunk, there is 1 piece of evidence that people can physically prove it’s flat and that is through thermal imaging. Thermal imaging only works in a straight line, it doesn’t curve or bend, and it doesn’t detect mirages or holograms. What this means is islands, cities, or whatever you’re looking at far away, those things we’re told is mirages because they are beyond the curve…

    Well Thermal imaging can tell you whether it’s a mirage or not, it’s that simple. It is the one thing that can tell us whether there is a curve or not.

    And people, thermal imaging tells us the world is flat, especially when you can zoom in on someone’s eyeballs from 100 miles away with a thermal cam strong enough. 100 miles away = 6500ft down out of eyesight, or 1.2 miles.

    Flat or a sphere there are surface features on our world which can be large flat areas,
    Mountains, shallow bowl shapes, how do you tell which of these are part of the actual surface?
    Only the surface of the sea and lakes follow the shape of the world exactly.
    But water is not always flat, storms, waves, and swell caused by low pressure all deform the surface of water, as do the tides which we have twice a day unless you live on the equator where they are minimal.
    People will always want to believe that there is a power in control of all this, face up to it we are here by chance, no creator cares for us, but we should all care for each other.

    if you look at GoPro skydiver videos like Felix Baumgartner, who claimed to have skydived 21.2 miles, when he opens the capsule, the earth line is flat. But more importantly anyone that has used or seen a GoPro camera knows that the picture it produces is “rounded” , GoPro images and the lenses are not flat. So the videos for Felix are distorted.

    Ok so my question would be if the earth was flat who is conducting this “science experiment ” and why would they still be doing this after all these thousands of years?
    You want to say we are in a holographic dome but I can’t even begin to think of something or someone who would continously keep making the sun rises and set, continously rise and lower the tide and even better why has there never been a problem say a glitch or server crash if you will? The sun rises and sets at a very predictable time yet we have never been able to create something that has worked that flawless. Also if it is a hologram there would need to be some sort of computer system set for this and then begins the hackers.

    What I find amusing about this whole “debate” is the diligence of those who know what has been known since at least the time of the ancient Greeks, i.e., that the Earth is a sphere (oblate or otherwise). You say “just go out at night with a telescope/binoculars and look at the ISS,” or “look at the pictures from the ISS, to say nothing of the Moon, which demonstrate clearly that the Earth is a sphere.” On the other side, the FlatEarthers will say things like “no matter how high you go, the Earth still looks flat.” That is true, of course, unless you go really high, such as to low earth orbit (ISS), or, even better, the Moon.

    What you non-FlatEarthers truly do not get, and I can understand your difficulty in understanding this when faced with such monumental stubbornness, is that the FlatEarthers consider ANY evidence you might present for a spherical Earth as all part of the Grand Conspiracy to hoodwink all of us into believing that the Earth is a sphere, for some arcane reason that I have yet to comprehend. The ISS, or any other satellites? Not there! The Moon landings, or other space flights? Faked! Testimony from scientists/military people in Antarctica? Globalist stooges! And on and on. Bwahahahaha . . .

    The •’center of gravity’ case against the flat earth model- is assuming theres a thing called gravity.
    Flat earth models that i know of do away with ‘gravity’, and instead show that things rise or fall due to thier relative density/bouyancy.
    •• Also , to heliocentric globers ..explain how you see the same constelations in the NIGHT sky during the winter as in the summer(but just at a different angle).
    If the earth revolved around the sun i shouldnt be able to see Orion at night at winter and summer(or spring and fall) ..because there should be a season that the sun would be in the way.
    Etc etc.
    The earth is flat. geocentric.
    Wow ..the bible had that right all along.(and other ancient texts coincidentally)/

    I just like that people are questioning what they are being told. Whether or not the earth is flat, spherical, conical, tubular, or cubical, is not the point. The point is to question everything. Not everything is as it seems.

    The quran never say that the sun is revolving the earth… but it does say that the sun and moon is revolving and also rotating.. But the sun does NOT REVOLVING THE EARTH.. And quran says that the shaped of the earth look like ostrich egg.. Ostrich egg are almost round.. And the holy quran already tell this 1400 year ago.. Making me love islam more & more..

    I honestly always give conspiracies a chance, absorb all the data presented and see if it fits. I usually don’t believe them, but I tend to be a fence sitter and try as hard as I can to stay away from absolutes (especially when dealing with conspiracies). However, this is by far the silliest conspiracy ever. None of the arguments have any weight and some of them have obvious solutions. The earths gravity bends the suns light, go to a lake and watch a boat sail away and you’ll notice the curvature of the Earth pretty quick.

    Here’s another problem I have, how can you say with absolute certainty that a planes GPS is switched off during southern hemisphere flights, are you a pilot? Do you work in the flight industry? Or did you just see a youtube video telling you that? Also the lack of discernible spin is a ridiculous point, Coriolis force confirms that.

    I am a firm believer in free thought and challenging the norm. JFK was probably shot by the CIA (I have no way of confirming this with absolute certainty, just like I have no way of disproving it), 9/11 might of had government involvement, I don’t know, but it’s definitely possible… BUT THIS!?! This is just retarded, and I rarely use that word, but I seriously can’t think of another word for it. Open up a god damn conventional physics book and thing will start making sense pretty quick. The Earth is a god damn globe, we established that forever ago. Like you can go confirm this out side right now, just like I said before. Go to a big body of water, look at the horizon until a boat comes into play, if it is moving away from you, the bottom of the boat will slowly disappear, if it is coming towards you, the sail will appear first, followed by the rest of the boat.

    If the world was flat, physics are right out the door forever and if you really want to believe this conspiracy, move to Saskatchewan or Manitoba for the best simulated flat earth theory theme park!!!

    The Catholic church could not support the flat earth theory for more than 2000, because the Catholic Church is not even 1000 years old.

    The Catholics were “born” in 1054 thus making the first Christian heresy – a heresy that most of the world seem to accept as Christianity.

    It is baffling how ignorant this article is. All the points in favour of a flat earth can be rebutted with basic knowledge of geometry and physics (high-school level).

    1) The lack of visible curvature (it may not be easily visible but it is definitely measurable) is due to the large radius of the earth (3950 miles). With geometry you can calculate that from 108 mi (as the distance between Oahu and Kauai) you would be able to see anything (person or structure) higher than 3 feet. If you do not believe anybody to tell you what the diameter of the Earth is, you can replicate Al-Biruni’s experiment a thousand years ago.

    2) The lack of discernible spin is down to Newton first law of motion (which as above you can also test yourself if you don’t believe anyone). We are all moving at the speed of rotation of the Earth ~1040 mph (2*pi*radius of the Earth divided by 24 hours in a day) and will continue to do so unless acted upon an unbalanced force. If that wasn’t the case, imagine how painful it would be everytime we jumped and lifted our feet from the ground. And again, if you do not believe we are spinning, how would you explain the movement of the sun, the moon and every planet and star we can see and track? And honestly, you cannot really believe everything spins except the Earth.

    3) Sun’s heat is due to thermal radiation (okay, this concept is more university level) and it can be quantified, and you can test it yourself if you don’t believe anyone). When you bake food in the oven you are heating with thermal radiation (if you use the fan, you also heat by convection).

    4) Even if you believe Admiral Byrd’s accounts, there have been countless expeditions to Antarctica (including the Admundsen expedition that reached the South Pole for the first time in 1911). Then if you rather believe the person who saw UFOs to all the well documented accounts of these explorers, what can I say…

    5) There other more credible reasons to why flights would not fly over Antarctica, e.g. Prevailing winds, commercial reasons: I understand that planes flying below 72 degrees latitude require special survival equipment on board by regulation, making this route economically less attractive.

    6) are satellites real. How exactly do you think the GPS on your mobile phones work? One CIA guy per person with GPS manually inputting your location?

    Generally, Conspiracy theories feed on the lack of evidence to disprove them, which is fine and often thought-provoking. This flat-Earth conspiracy article doesn’t even try to present unverifiable information.

    As the article tries to conclude, ignorance is enslavement and if you want to liberate yourselves, then educate yourselves. Not by reading rubbish on the internet, but by learning mathematics, physics, astronomy, and other sciences which will actually teach you how to prove facts and disarm false statements. Please do it even if it is only out of desire to disprove that the Earth is round, you’ll be truly surprised!

    A number of flat earth videos showed up in my stream recently, and i watched a few of them. It makes me wonder.

    I’ve never been into space and can’t say for sure. Experts say it is round and most people believe it too.

    It doesn’t necessarily mean it is right, just what is accepted as right, and i pretty much accept that for now.

    I don’t have the time to set up big experiments, but i did set up a blender test scene.

    I made a 1:1 scale globe and a flat plane in blender, with a camera eye to ‘film’ the horizon up to 30km (for compare to camera footage).

    Lets just say it still left me wondering.

    I thought about it for some time, and came up with some ways that can either warrant further investigation, or disprove the flat earth theory.

    They all involve Antarctica:

    1: a) Find an accurate measuring device for distance traveled.
    b) Bring it directly to the nearest edge of Antarctica.
    c) Place a physical marker at that spot.
    d) Begin measuring at that spot as you follow one direction of the coastline.
    e) Measure with the coastline sight from the same direction and distance at all times.
    f) Continue until you return to the marker.
    e) Upon arrival at the marker, compare distance to expected distance of Antarctica’s coastline:
    i) If the distance more than expected (eg. multiple times larger.) -> re-investigate further (north too, etc.).
    ii) If the distance within what would be exptected -> flat earth disproved.

    2: a) Bring a GPS and go directly to the nearest edge of Antarctica.
    b) Place the first physical marker at that spot.
    c) Use the GPS to go directly to the opposite longitude edge of Antarctica ((current longitude) – 180).
    d) Place a physical marker at that spot.
    e) Go directly back to the first marker in a completely straight line.
    f) upon arrival at the first marker, review your flight plan:
    i) If you crossed the equator -> re-investigate further (north too, etc.).
    ii) If you do not cross the equator -> flat earth disproved.

    A flat earth could “revolve” , the stars could “revolve” too in unison or separately. Could explain some things. If “gravity” can affect a plane 30,000 feet up, it must be very strong – so strong that we could not even lift our feet off the ground. If the earth spins/revolves how does it keep revolving, great perpetual motion I guess. Not taking sides, just exploring ideas.

    I have wondered about this issue for a while, having been brought up to believe the world is round and then hearing about the renewed flat earth movement. Anyway I thought of a couple of exercises to try to prove the solution one way or the other.
    I took two locations about 30 degrees apart at the +30degree N latitude and two locations 30 degrees apart on the -30degree S latitude and compared their distances and found that the south pair were farther apart than the no0rth pair.
    Then I looked at the longest bridge in the world, 165km long bridge in China. The bridge decks are dead flat and the water level seems to be parallel the whole way along, at least as far as the photograph shows. I then calculated how much the water should have bulged along the length of the bridge if the world is a ball and found by simple Pythagorus that the water should have been about 450metres above the bridge deck in the middle of the bridge, but it is clearly not, the water level is flat, just like the bridge. This seems like a fairly reliable indication that the earth is flat.
    I would be happy to hear what other think of these approaches.
