Look into Eric Dubay. I thought the flat earth was insane before I listened to some of his interviews.

are there any flat earthers that aren't religious? once i heard that, it was a relief. yeah flat earth is bullshit

People can do their own god damn tests to prove to your self that the earth is plane based not round. When you do your own research the truth will be there waiting for you. Look up Eric Dubay if your lazy.

Some irony with this video. Making fun of flat earth and your background picture shows no curvature.

Author Brendyn Andrew ( ago)
*All FE's Please Read:* I'll end flat earth theory with one observation. Observe how in any vacuum: *WATER* always takes on curved "spherical properties. Anytime water is in the vacuum of space it bubbles and turns into a ball. What matter for that matter is known to stay flat in the vacuum of space? Most if not all things are drawn inward by the force of gravity clump together and become spheroid. I don't see Why water couldn't stay curved around earth in space? And yes FE's (vacuums) are real. The relative isolation of matter from space is possible and reproduced on earth everyday *THE END* .

Hold on, we are spinning at 1000mph I can barely hold on!!!!!! Oh that's right it's formulas to explain that. I can't even stick my hand out of window driving at 80 mph without intense pressure yet this whole planet is spinning at 1000mph and feel nothing

If the earth is flat,what about the Tidal forces wich can actually be measured...If you actually draw an imaginary straight line parallel to earth's surface ,you'll measure different gravitational forces acting upon every infinite points which belongs to this line. The only way it could happen is if the Earth is spherical.

How can I debunk the arguments used by Flat Earth advocates?

You can’t.

Or rather, you can, but it won’t do any good. In order to believe the earth is flat, you have to hold so many beliefs completely in contradiction to fact, from a vast conspiracy by all the world’s navies to the idea that the moon glows with its own light, that no argument is going to matter. There is no combination of words you can use that will convince a flat-earther the world is round. You could probably send them to the ISS and they’d believe it was all some elaborate special effect.

It's terrifying to think that so many people believe that the earth is flat! If you get in a passenger jet and climb to 30,000 feet you can see the earth is a sphere,with your eyes you can see it!

Author Ben Daulton ( ago)
To be honest much of what scientist say is just gobbled up. They have been wrong often not that that is bad, but it seems as though they get arrogant and act they have a solid understanding of things so far away that the information is so miniscule and likely to be corrupted by fields, matter, or anything that affects the frequency of light.

Author Khalid Bahaj ( ago)
I believe the earth is flat. I'm waiting for the comment replies HEHEHE. LIKE COME ON MEN. ARE WE IN FCKING RENAISSANCE PERIOD? Like debating on Kepler, Gallileo and some scientist before who defended that "earth is round not flat" against some catholic scholars? Who some of the scientist got persecuted by that or got lock down in prison. Why the media is making big deal of this DAMN.

Author Rever Vie ( ago)
The absurdity of the globe is believing water's surface takes the shape
of what is underneath. Even if oceans were forced to stick to the ball
earth because of "gravity", the water would still remain level, not
curved! The globe is a lie! WATER ALWAYS FINDS ITS LEVEL!!! Research it,
I know it takes some time to get over the indoctrination and fancy CGI
of space.

8cm per mile squared: now go find the earths 'curve'

Author felix mendez ( ago)
What better shows the stupidity and fanaticism of Flattards is the fact that they dont see their FE "model" as an hypothesis that could be proven right experimentally, the way good science works, but as a "cause", as a "movement of faith" which purpose is to gather an increasing number of adepts so it can finally become like say, a dominant religion; like Islam for example, or Christian fundamentalism.

Can someone please provide me with a link to a raw image file?

Author k c ( ago)
your dubai story is flawed all your doing is going in a tower and looking over the horizon more clearly, because you dont have objects in your path distorting the view but you can only see as far as a human eye and if the sun is rotating away.. than of course the top of the tower would be last to set, its not going the shine last on the foundation....., if the earth was rotating away and was 93km away it would be lighting the planet . go shine a light on piece of garlic what happens only %20 is dark but closer you go is more like how our sun works with casting shadows. dont forget the rainbow of light is only half the colors theres still ultraviolets which extend the lights by double which explains sunsets with help of h2o.

It's flat. The Bible has 400 references to it. Neil knows it's true!! He has a job to do and is playing along. NASA has been lying. The earth is flat!!! When u walk outside.... are u walking upside down? NO! And don't bring gravity into it.... Neil himself cannot tell us what gravity is. There is an interview on here where he gets all lost and shit when asked about gravity!!!

Trying to keep the universe going, Neil de grasse someone has got too. Fucking truth in plain site.

If this motherfucker ain't lying, it was in are space, space. He is a fucking actor people, wake the fuck up. Russian will show this motherfucker and china will watch this space. The moon and sun are energy transmitted and transferred light of natural energy source. The sun the positive the moon the negative. No David Ickes the others made the moon. However the yin yang symbol thousands of years old. Shows the sun and moon going round a flat plain. Exactly what this con man just shown.

The earth is flat. Do you really trust Neil DeGrasse Tyson. He says the earth is pear shaped. Why hasn't this been confirmed by a NASA photograph, not a CGI composite image

Omfg you people are such idiots. The earth is fucking flat for fuck sakes. It's been proven by many youtubers. Don't believe everything you hear in SCHOOL because they are trained to teach you this by the corrupt government. Drop out of school right now and find some reliable youtubers who can teach you about the flat earth, new world order, 911, school shooting, etc.. 911 and school shooting was all staged by governement and they want you to be stupid and believe this just like they want you to believe the world is round. WAKE UP THE FUCK.

Author Billy Casagrand ( ago)
Do any of these flat earth believing dumb asses ever apply the idea to their theory of the size of humans compared to a planets size they live on with the size of the earth to a star like the sun compare the suns size to an astronomical size universe. Just because you compare your size and comparative concessions to what you know does not mean you are the size of what deluded you to believe a giant size planet means you are on a flat surface.because if you compare an ant hill to their known size doesn't mean that the known comparative to an ant hill to a regular hill means that the regular hill the ant hill is on isn't curved for its environmental size. Actually compare sizes you flat earth believing morons.

flat eathers have some interesting science behind it to tho like how do they land a plane on a moving ball thats moving as fast as it is and how space rockets curve when they go stright up and stars should be more blury up why does the earth spin but the moon does not and so on and so on

Author Kimberly York ( ago)
IT is flat. And all our experiences, scientific proofs, and common sense say it's flat. NASA's lies are exposed. Degrassi is a Mason and name calling is not a proof. Funny the horizon is bone flat. The reality is it does not matter how high you go up, the horizon is always at eye level. The lies are all falling apart. Black budget NASA going Nowhere and the money goes where again?

A lot of people think that on a flat earth you'd fall off the edge.
Have you seen a flat earth map?
Apparently Antarctica circles the earth and it's an infinite plane too harsh to go past, and it's like a wall.

I know it sounds crazy. But hear me out.

I know you guys have heard about the moon landing being a hoax. What if I said they made that in order to try and prove the earth is round. Because if you could fly to the moon, then the earth would obviously be round.

But there's a lot of footage out there that actually shows how it was faked.
Enough evidence to convince anyone that it was faked.

What about flight patterns around the world? Have you noticed that on a round earth map, they take odd and strange routes to their destinations?

They make a lot more sense on a flat earth map.

These are only a couple examples but there's much more out there that can prove the earth is flat.

Author fireofenergy ( ago)
No need to believe pictures from space... it's already self evident (that the Earth is a sphere). Now, I can enjoy those pics and KNOW that they are not photoshopped. Well, perhaps the one with a face on the moon, lol.
Edit: the reason many pictures from the ISS show the Earth as spherical is because they use a fisheye lens, hence the reason flat earthers think we're all being lied to.
Also, that darn tidal lock of the Moon. If it rotated, flat earthers would know it's also spherical and thus there wouldn't​ be any...
And much thanks to people like Neil for trying to explain science!

My advice to the Neil deGrasse Tyson Lie niga as good as you can and as long as you can and get really lucrative for it. and when people find out about NASA bull shit people then run niga run as fast as you can ... and I will hide you as my own son.

flat earth fans rising in numbers as soon critical mass reach the number our imaginary reality will flip to another imaginary reality. To keep the balance means keep focus on observe able reality that we all share. The truth is not in peoples heads, but all around them. Survival tips: watch out what actually serves life fulfill human needs.

All I know about moon is that Hollywood camera crew was there first and they produced all images of earth from the Computer-generated imagery (CGI) machine and there is no other evidence that people who get billions of dollars for the mission, have bin there. Whats a point to put life human in the robot that do job exactly as programed? you don't need to care life cargo over there. And why go to the moon that no one have crossed Antarctica yet ?

I know for sure that world has to be older then my mamas pussy and I admit in that statement there is speculation out to imaginary. Imagination has no limits which means we have to track what actually serves life, other ways we get lost in our heads which is a sin and cause suffer. For me reason to not sin is to avoid suffer I don't care about God and natural laws don't care about what we thing. we live because we do what serves life and everything else harms life for sure.

it's not surprising at all, because it's in the bible! they believing in stalking snakes, magic arks, water to wine, the list goes on, so why not a flat earth? th bible cant be wrong cant it? -_-....... its all just retarded.

Author Robert Newman ( ago)
You never thought your stupidity would be laughed at by others. It was easy to tag along and play the fool like others. But that is the age we are living in. There is soon no escape hiding behind the 'ball earth' nonsense. You KNOW it's nonsense. And when you know it's nonsense that is the time when you become responsible for it. In the short time before judgment strikes this world it will become clearer and clearer that modern 'science' so-called is not science at all and is not using the scientific method or providing fair evidences and facts but is imagination and 'science fiction' - a mental and spiritual rebellion against the Creator of His own Creation.
