I owned him twice in this thread and no response... His mind is blown

The fact of the matter is people have had sufficient evidence to understand and establish a spherical earth for literally thousands of years. WELL before they even began to understand fucking heliocentrism. 

If someone can't understand it in today's incredibly technological age, with so much video and photographic evidence... Well, what the fuck can you do? Some people just can't see.

So far, all the hurtling ball earth believers can do is show that some pictures indicate that the earth has a curvature.

Ok, point taken, but wheres the evidence of the earth's purported rotation and flying through the galaxy at astronomical speeds, I haven't seen one fucking shred of proof.

Peasant - If i ever meet a genuine flat earth believer im punching them in the face as hard as i can, fukn retards

I think they might be even more retarded than young earth creationists. 

They are, the church never really believed in flat earth. That was figured out so long ago, even in the classical age by the Greeks using basic mathematics and astronomy lol

Every single navigator; pilot, ship captain, etc are all in it and have been from the start, and have managed to keep it secret to friends, families, collegues, everyone I tells ya! :-)

What evidence do you have?

The evidence for a flat earth is derived from many different facets of science and philosophy. The simplest is by relying on ones own senses to discern the true nature of the world around us. The world looks flat, the bottoms of clouds are flat, the movement of the sun; these are all examples of your senses telling you that we do not live on a spherical heliocentric world. This is using what's called an empiricalapproach, or an approach that relies on information from your senses. Alternatively, when using Descartes' method of Cartesian doubt to skeptically view the world around us, one quickly finds that the notion of a spherical world is the theory which has the burden of proof and not flat earth theory. 

Perhaps the best example of flat earth proof is the Bedford Level Experiment. In short, this was an experiment performed many times on a six-mile stretch of water that proved the surface of the water to be flat. It did not conform to the curvature of the earth that round earth proponents teach.

People have been into space. How have they not discovered that the earth is flat?

The most commonly accepted explanation of this is that the space agencies of the world are involved in a conspiracy faking space travel and exploration. This likely began during the Cold War's 'Space Race', in which the USSR and USA were obsessed with beating each other into space to the point that each faked their accomplishments in an attempt to keep pace with the other's supposed achievements. Since the end of the Cold War, however, the conspiracy is most likely motivated by greed rather than political gains, and using only some of their funding to continue to fake space travel saves a lot of money to embezzle for themselves.

In light of the above, please note that we are not suggesting that space agencies are aware that the earth is flat and actively covering the fact up. They depict the earth as being round simply because that is what they expect it to be.

There are many pictures on the internet and in other media depicting the earth as being round. Why do these not disprove flat earth theory?

In general, we at the Flat Earth Society do not lend much credibility to photographic evidence. It is too easily manipulated and altered. Many of the videos posted here to "prove a round earth" by showing curvature will show no curvature or even concave curvature at parts. The sources are so inaccurate it's difficult to build an argument on them in either case. Furthermore, barrel distortion and other quirks of modern cameras will cause a picture to distort in ways which may not be immediately obvious or apparent, especially without references within the picture. Photographs are also prone to distortion when taken through the bent glass of a pressurized cabin as well as atmospheric conditions on the outside. With this litany of problems, it's easy to see why photographic evidence is not to be trusted.

It's also worth noting that if a person were to look down at the earth from high above, they would expect to see a circular shape where the sun's spotlight was shining. This explains why high altitude photographs are generally curved to produce the illusion of a round horizon.

What does the earth look like? How is circumnavigation possible?

As seen in the diagrams above, the earth is in the form of a disk with the North Pole in the center and Antarctica as a wall around the edge. This is the generally accepted model among members of the society. In this model, circumnavigation is performed by moving in a great circle around the North Pole.

The earth is surrounded on all sides by an ice wall that holds the oceans back. This ice wall is what explorers have named Antarctica. Beyond the ice wall is a topic of great interest to the Flat Earth Society. To our knowledge, no one has been very far past the ice wall and returned to tell of their journey. What we do know is that it encircles the earth and serves to hold in our oceans and helps protect us from whatever lies beyond.

Here is picture of a proposed, but certainly not definitive, flat earth.

How do you explain day/night cycles and seasons?

Day and night cycles are easily explained on a flat earth. The sun moves in circles around the North Pole. When it is over your head, it's day. When it's not, it's night. The light of the sun is confined to a limited area and its light acts like a spotlight upon the earth. The picture below illustrates how the sun moves and also how seasons work on a flat earth. The apparent effect of the sun rising and setting is usually explained as a perspectiveeffect.

So the Sun never sets in parts of Greenland???   Just sunny all the time?

The Flat Earth Society on NASA and space travel:

https://wiki.tfes.org/The_Conspiracy

The Conspiracy is the blanket term most commonly used by proponents of Zeteticismto refer to the active faking of space travel.

It is most often associated with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), its constituents and fellow so-called "space agencies" as well as those who are informed by them (including government).

There is no Flat Earth Conspiracy. NASA is not hiding the shape of the earth from anyone. The purpose of NASA is not to 'hide the shape of the earth' or 'trick people into thinking it's round' or anything of the sort.

There is a Space Travel Conspiracy. The purpose of NASA is to fake the concept of space travel to further America's militaristic dominance of space. That was the purpose of NASA's creation from the very start: To put ICBMs and other weapons into space (or at least appear to). The motto "Scientific exploration of new frontiers for all mankind" was nothing more than a front.

The earth is portrayed as round in NASA media because NASA thinks it's round. They are not running a real space program, so they wouldn't know what shape the earth truly takes. At the time of NASA's creation the general population already believed that the earth was round, based on the handed down teachings of the Ancient Greeks, which is why it was depicted in that manner. As with everyone else in the country, the people at NASA were taught the fiction of a globe earth from the cradle, so there was no doubt in their mind as how to display it.

For two to three months in summer there is continuous daylight in greenland.  http://www.weatheronline.co.uk/reports/climate/Greenland.htm

Yeah, Alaska is the same but by the example of that “scientific gif” Some of Greenland never ever experiences the dark.

TheHaunted2 - Anyone that can look at any other planet in the solar system and see they're round. But somehow ours is different

Round like a dinner plate. That's all we see.

So it's flat but is on its side? That's what you're telling me.

Ok, point taken, but wheres the evidence of the earth's purported rotation and flying through the galaxy at astronomical speeds, I haven't seen one fucking shred of proof.

Lol so this is the new conspiracy theory? That the earth isn't really rotating on its axis or that that solar systems aren't revolving around the center of the galaxy? But instead are stationary? To what end would it serve anyone to convince people against a non rotating galaxy?

I know there are posters on this thread who are joking and trolling, but for anybody who actually thinks the earth is flat... I truly feel sorry for you. I hope the only one that believes it is the OP.

PoiuPoiu - they knew the earth was spherical thousands of years ago before the US or nasa even existed. even did the math did get within a few miles or so

No, some people like Pythagoras and later Copercornicus speculated about a model that demonstrated a spinning ball Earth. This eventually became the accepted belief amongst some sections of the scientific community, but it was always just a theory. 

no it was eratosthenese a greek philiosopher that made an estimation within 800km by using geometry with the angle of the sun at two points during the summer solstice in egypt. the difference between the length of shadows at the same time of day gave a measure of the curvature. then he plugged in the degree difference between the two location and the linear distance for the same and voila. round fucking earth. science!

Err, so why is it that in winter greenland is basically dark for 3 months?

Soup and Beer - Rogan said on one of the podcasts that there is evidence the recent flat earth craze was actually started a few years ago by two guys on 4 Chan as a joke. They provided a few arguments "proving" it was flat which others added on to knowing full well it was all a troll. It spread from 4chan to YouTube and took a life of its own.

But somewhere right now, two guys are laughing their asses off over what they started.

Rogan says a lot of shit that is unverified, he literally just pulled that out of his ass.

Another common tactic of his is "I read an  article that said...."

For a man who was once a champion of the Moon landing hoax, he's sure changed his outlook.
