Flat Earth vs. the Globe ...
What I don’t understand is the name-calling, insults, and absolute anger when someone mentions flat earth. We all on this website because we enjoy considering alternative ideas, but for some reason the possibility that the earth may not be a globe makes people so defensive. There are people on this site who believe in aliens, reptilians, Nibiru, big foot, vampires, etc., and yet those topics don’t piss people off as much as flat earth.

I enjoy considering the possibilities of our world being completely different than I was taught. And the whole point of GLP is to ponder the alternative ideas. It really hurts no one if I want to explore the idea of the earth being flat, although most behave as though it is a personal insult.

I think the idea of the world being vastly different than what has been drummed into our heads is fascinating. And I like the idea because if the world is flat then we truly have to understand all we have been taught is lies, and if the world is flat then we are much more special than we ever imagined.

Flat earth gives hope in both the creator and the creation. Instead of being a non-essential speck in a huge Universe, we then become the most important thing ever, each life, each person, each decision, whereas if we, on earth, are simply no more than a drop of water in an unimaginably huge ocean, we’re not much of anything, no more important than a single leaf on a tree or blade of grass. But if earth is the center of the Universe then we are all Godly, and our purpose in life becomes so much more important.

I, for myself, don’t know if the earth is a globe spiraling through space at unfathomable speeds, or if the earth is flat and stable, created for this human experience. But given my druthers I’d like to think each one of us is special and that we all shine in God’s eye – that the homeless guy sleeping on the street is just as important as the president or whatever pop star is in the news.

I have never been in space, nor has anyone I’ve ever met, so truth is, none of us really know. Over the years I have come to the conclusion if most people believe a concept to be true, it probably isn’t, and look how “facts” change generation to generation. There are simple truths, like how babies are born, and that chickens lay eggs, but so many things declared truth in one season, change in the next. I keep my mind open, and love alternative ideas; at least those ideas keep the world (flat or a globe) interesting.

Re: Flat Earth vs. the Globe ...
The "Flat Earth" is a conspiracy by TPTB to make real conspiracy exposers look like part of a gang of kooks. In other words, they are part of the enemy, not just honest folks gone stupid. Their "theory" is so ridiculous as to be obvious to even the average low IQ citizens of the Earth---and they are putting a lot of energy and money into it.


So yeah, it is deserving of anger. And their paid shills have sets of answers to give against every proof.

Re: Flat Earth vs. the Globe ...
I am not necessarily a proponent of the “flat Earth theory” quite yet, but I find it very interesting. I have long been convinced that we are living in an artificial reality of some sort, whether it be a computer simulation, controlled hallucination, or whatever you might want to call it. To me, if this is the case, it doesn’t matter much the extent to which one can, as a participant in the simulation, explore places beyond Earth. If it is all purely artifice, it seems that it was put together with Earth as the “main event.”

So just as, in a video game, nothing exists for the players beyond what is shown and experienced, to most people, everything purported to be beyond our solar system is so abstract and remote that we feel no personal connection to it. Also, for thousands of years, the only experience man had of the stars and planets was what he could see with his own eyes from the surface of the Earth. Nowadays, when we look at the night’s sky, our minds immediately extrapolate from the “photos,” illustrations, and computer animations we’ve all seen in books and movies about outer space. Most of us will never experience anything outside of Earth’s atmosphere with our own senses, so our mental picture of what it’s like out there is informed only “data” from space agencies and, much more largely, by Hollywood fiction.

I have also long felt that this feeling of being in a fake reality is innate to most people, and that this is often expressed in the stories we tell. In myths, fairy tales, novels and movies, motifs are commonly found in which this is implied.

Well, I have a rather high IQ, and I enjoy thinking about the idea. None of us have been in space, so truthfully none of us know.

I don't understand why the fact that a few thousand people discussing the possibility is so disturbing to the masses - 300+ million in the US alone.
