Quite a few 1 stars with no rebuttal? 30% here understand the other 70% are most likely Neanderthals with monkey blood. It's not your fault god choose not to give you the ability to see the truth. All can see but few will understand. That's why academia is you religion you believe those who you think are smarter than you are telling you the truth.

Matthew 7:13-14 (NIV)

The Narrow and Wide Gates
13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 52215195




If you find that narrow path.
Walking and staying within it is fucking difficult.

Wouldn't have it any other WAY though.

Re: Challenge to globe earthers 200 reasons the earth is flat
You guys aren't in an an elite club of intellectuals who have figured out a great conspiracy. You are a movement of people who cannot understand physics and think youtube videos and reading flawed pseudo scince with your confirmation bias constitutes research. Science is not a religion and people such as yourselves are the problem with the world and its alternative "facts" .Its depressing that people who dedicate their lives to different all the scientific genres have their work dismissed as lies because of peoples ignorance and self belief
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74773021

Science IS a religion. You act exactly like a religious person defending their religion. You hide behind "academics" "scholars" "scientist" in other words you hide behind your PRIESTS. You don't dare give serious thought or look into anything that challenges your world view because it's blasphemy to you.

"How can these people with years of studying and expertise be wrong?" This question can be asked by either science fanatics or religious fanatics. What flat earthers do is seek their own answers, point out the flaws in current main stream theories and conduct their own experiments.

You, like other globe heads, refuse to use the scientific method. You don't continually challenge your theories like a true scientist should, if you did you would find that you've been lied to and have been indoctrinated.

Keep fighting for your masters.

Btw.: What "own experiments" have you done? Pray tell.
 Quoting: Hydra

I've gone to the Bedford river with friends, we conducted the same experiment to determine that there is no curvature.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74753952

Bedford level experiment disproved by Alfred Russel Wallace in 1870 and again in 1901 by Henry Yule Oldham using a theodolite. Did you use a theodolite? or were you on of the party that rowed a bout down the river looking left and right and claiming "Yep, it's flat"? [link to www.metabunk.org (secure)]
FAIL


The work I did is riddled with potential for inaccuracies but at least I got off my duff and went out

I've climbed mountains and look around to see no curvature, the horizon stayed at eye level.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74753952

You are not supposed to see a curvature from aircraft cruising altitude (~ 10 km), why do yo expect to see a curvature from 3000 or 4000 meters?
FAIL


I've gone to the shining rock wilderness hiking area to conduct the same experiments as Jon McIntyre and found his findings to be accurate.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74753952

No, you didn't. Show me one video where part of the ship is behind the horizon and you get that part back.

I've seen the statue of Liberty from 60 miles away even though is should be 2,074 feet of it should be below curvature.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74753952

Oh look, straight copy and paste from Eric Dubay's "200 proofs".

I've looked out the window of a plane and have never seen curvature at all.

As I've written above, you are not supposed to see a curvature from aircraft cruising altitude.

In my location the altitude of Polaris in the night sky is 53.5° and the distance to the north pole is 4052 km.

Why is the flight time from Sydney to Santiago de Chile the same as from Washington DC to Tokyo
though the distance from Sydney to Santiago is twice as long on a flat earth?
:fesydscl:
 Quoting: Hydra

Because there are no Sydney to Santiago flights.
This question was answered a zillion times before.. and that proves your superficiality (the opposite of a thorough researcher)
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 73030747

Yep, airlines a part of the big, bad globe earth conspiracy. The same lame argument the flat earthers come up with every time: Flight don't exist, you can not book the flight, if you could book, it's cancelled, ...

Prove that there are no direct flights from Sydney to Santiago de Chile.
Thousands of people taking this flights during a month prove you wrong.

Do you think that military distance maps are faulty?
The distance from Melbourne to Perth is 1800 miles, from Darwin to Luzon 2000 miles.
Explain, why the line from Melbourne to Perth is twice as long as the line from Darwin to Luzon.

Now your asking them to break away from the brain washing?

Actual video of a Space Shuttle launch taken from a commercial airliner.

Note that the Shuttle stops going vertical and makes a big arch out to sea.

NO rockets go straight up, they all turn toward horizontal.

How can this be?

Search "rockets don't go to space" and you'll find many videos of rockets curving away from the closest route to "outer space", which is straight UP.

Taking a shortcut or burning off some excess fuel, or just more deception to convince people we live on a spinning ball?



[link to www.youtube.com (secure)]
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74588680


They don't go vertical because they need the horizontal speed to attain orbit. Count orbits as yet another thing flatties don't understand.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 73085799


So they're "picking up speed"? LOL In a rocket? Where fuel is super-precious? You've got to come up with something better than that.

As soon as these rockets (All Rockets) TURN, they have a tremendously further distance to travel to get to "outer space".

Try again.

200 reasons why the globe earth model makes no sense! It's a long video but the only one I have seen that puts all the proof of a flat earth in one video. If after watching this video you still believe that the earth is a globe with no doubt in you mind. You will need to go directly to a de-indoctrination camp to examine your views on the world and re-examine your level of intelligence. 99% of you will fight that the earth is a globe without even watching the video due to your ego. You learned it in school and it must be so correct? If you really truly believe the earth is round watch examine and re-consider you preconceived notions. If you can dispute all 200 claims in the video feel free to list them all in your response.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 52215195

One third of the "proofs" are redundant, like "Balloons should simply hover for an hour on a rotating globe to go down at a different location" and "A helicopter should simply hover for an hour on a rotating globe to go down at a different location".

Another part is simply stupid, like "Railroad engineers don't account for curvature". Why should they? They lay the tracks on the ground.

Another big part of the "proofs" don't prove a flat Earth because the would also apply to a stationary globe earth, like "We don't feel the rotation" or the Michelson-Morley experiment.

Other "proofs" have been proven wrong by follow up experiments, like Rowbotham’s Bedford level experiment.

Then there are the "proofs" that use wrong numbers for distances or the deceptions on non existing flight routes. There are no cities in the southern hemisphere that can be connected via a great circle that goes over Antarctica.

And then there are of course the obvious lies, like "Polaris can be seen up to over 20 degrees South latitude" or "Sigma Octantis can NOT be seen simultaneously from every point along the same latitude".


What remains of the "200 Proofs" after you remove the above mentioned is: Zero proofs.

Train tracks are made out of pieces that are 20-30 feet long and are deliberately put down with small spaces between them to allow for heat expansion. There is no reason to account for a curve at that scale. Flattie fail.

Just because YOU are too incompetent to see it doesn't mean it isn't there.

The very fact that we have a sharp horizon whose distance is based on the observers height (and not just visually, also applies to RADAR and radio and can NOT be increased by an increase in power) proves there is a curve.

One third of the "proofs" are redundant, like "Balloons should simply hover for an hour on a rotating globe to go down at a different location" and "A helicopter should simply hover for an hour on a rotating globe to go down at a different location".

Another part is simply stupid, like "Railroad engineers don't account for curvature". Why should they? They lay the tracks on the ground.

Another big part of the "proofs" don't prove a flat Earth because the would also apply to a stationary globe earth, like "We don't feel the rotation" or the Michelson-Morley experiment.

Other "proofs" have been proven wrong by follow up experiments, like Rowbotham’s Bedford level experiment.

Then there are the "proofs" that use wrong numbers for distances or the deceptions on non existing flight routes. There are no cities in the southern hemisphere that can be connected via a great circle that goes over Antarctica.

And then there are of course the obvious lies, like "Polaris can be seen up to over 20 degrees South latitude" or "Sigma Octantis can NOT be seen simultaneously from every point along the same latitude".


What remains of the "200 Proofs" after you remove the above mentioned is: Zero proofs.

There is no curve to your brain, because its as flat as a sheet of paper. You people are literally retarded. I'm surprised these flatheads can even use a computer, maybe they're trolling.

200 reasons why the globe earth model makes no sense! It's a long video but the only one I have seen that puts all the proof of a flat earth in one video. If after watching this video you still believe that the earth is a globe with no doubt in you mind. You will need to go directly to a de-indoctrination camp to examine your views on the world and re-examine your level of intelligence. 99% of you will fight that the earth is a globe without even watching the video due to your ego. You learned it in school and it must be so correct? If you really truly believe the earth is round watch examine and re-consider you preconceived notions. If you can dispute all 200 claims in the video feel free to list them all in your response.

Dude. "Another Brick in the Wall, Part II" was not meant to be taken literally. You were not supposed to actually say "Hey, teacher, leave me alone!" You weren't supposed to run around your whole life saying "I don't need no education." But here you are. Fighting something that a Greek mathematician proved mathematicallly over 2100 years ago.

Re: Challenge to globe earthers 200 reasons the earth is flat
I am on the fence when it comes to these new theories on flat earth. The major reason i lean towards what flat earthers have to say is because of the major down voting and general attack goes on against those who believe the earth is flat.

For example

Listening to Fade to Black a radio show that is all about the paranormal and conspiracies the host is like:

"FLAT EARTH BELIEVERS ARE SO FREAKING STUPID! I MEAN DAMN WE HAVE PICTURES FROM NASA THE EARTH IS ROUND! DUMBASSES!
....and now we are back with our guest to talk about shape shifting reptilian alien overlords that built the pyramids."

OMg. I just listened to the first three. #2. ""The horizon always rises to the level of the observer." If an ant standing on a watermelon found a way to hover half an inch off its surface, it would experience the same effect. And it would be ten times higher relative to the watermelon than a person in a plane or balloon would be. Derp.
