If the earth was flat, everything in our solar system would be flat. if the earth was flat, how do you explain that our moon is a geoid (round)?
and nasa and other space agencies would not lie about the earth's geographical structure.
so here's the answer.

Likelihood of the earth's geographical structure:


20% 80%
Flat Oblate Spheroid

it is possible for the earth to be flat, but most likely, not.
if you have any theories against this. then please reply to me.
i would like to hear it.

Author XxZigiixX ( ago)
The earth is obviously spherical. That flat map is laughable, i hear alot of flat earthers say antartica is prohibited because it leads to the edge and yet according to that specific map it would mean that you could pretty much travel straight in any direction and eventually hit the edge... so why is it that no one has done that?? antartica can't be the only direction to follow just grab a boat go straight anywhere, wherever doesn't matter... you SHOULD HIT THE EDGE it should be stupidly easy to prove and yet there is NO PROOF.... and you can't say that it's not possible to go in a straight line... if anything the only way we could ever actually travel in a straight line would be if the earth is flat.

Author McNubbin101 ( ago)
So being in a plane or at the beach with clear skies and SEEING the curvature means nothing? Or the fact that we can fire a gun and hit another something beyond the horizon means nothing? I don't see an explanation working out denying the curvature of earth if you simply stand at a beach and look at open water. Let alone a clear skies flight at 30,000 feet....

Wow. Youtard is killing me. Look here, youtard members that become expert conspiracy theorists on a meaningless video site that was never intended for this.....you have no right spreading false information just so you can press an agenda that you have tricked yourself into believing. Its not because i care about you...i dont, but i think you are way out of line attempting to corrupt others. Things like this are why freedom of speech needs to be reviewed. There should be a treason penalty for implying government

If the earth were accelerating upward at 9.8m/s then it would have to accelerate exponentially faster because we will accelerate with the earth. We would be traveling at close to the speed of light at this point, and anything we see from a different star is actually happening incredibly slowly.

If a flat earth were accelerating at 9.8 meters per second, Planes would constantly have to be gaining altitude to prevent the earth crashing into them from below.

Can someone explain to me how in 2017 there are people who still believe that the earth is flat? What do these people have to say about all the images and videos from space which clearly show that the earth is in FACT not flat but a sphere. Do they just ignore the physical evidence? I don't understand the existence of these flat earthers. How did this happen? Is it just a stupid American movement? Is our education system that horrendous that it can propagate such ludicrous and insane beliefs?

Let's see if the earth is really flat. 2 planes 1 in a parallel universe where earth is flat and the other one from the universe where earth is round, the planes started flying from Germany to Japan if the earth is flat, the plane fron that universe will go in japan with the north pole, if it is fake, the plane would have to fly in : Denmark,Poland,Russia,S Korea until it reaches japan

OK. earth is flat. The gravity if exists is pulling everything inwards. and some centrifugal force is there cause earth disc is rotating. great . then why don't we see constant 18 m high walls of sea water which would occur due to tide like constant conditions on flat earth? +Vsauce

first point is only valid if gravity is at the center
but what if it is levelled out all over?
