The flat earth instead of the globe earth

Lately the flat earth is seeing a surge in interest.
I actually have changed my mind and now view a flat earth as more logically fitting the observable data. One clear example is skylines of cities are clearly visible at distances that if the earth curved down, they would be a thousand feet lower so you could not see them, but your can still see them. If a globe, the earth curves 8 inches to the mile squared, which would make a skyline, or a lighthouse drop off the horizon.

So let's treat this as an interesting idea.

First one talks of how plane flights on a globe make no sense.



Second one is more information generally.

Wow, so how do satellites and other orbiting objects work in your flat world?

And how does a circumnavigation work?

And how does basic marine navigation work?

Not too far fetched considering our leaders are reptilian

All those things could work the same way, just going around in circles like they would on a globe earth.

A flat earth is one of the biggest 'conspiracy' ideas a person might imagine.

Here is another interesting video comparing the mountain heights, which should be dropping down if the earth was round, but they don't. Not being able to demonstrate observable curvature, demonstrates a globe earth has problems.

Greetings,
Some validity to this point of view. After all, the earth is only 6000 years old isn't it?

Yes, but what kind? Perhaps a sea serpent lurking at the end of the flat earth?

Yes, from proverbs it says God drew a circle on the deep, which would be the flat earth.
The great deep existed before the earth was formed.


Genesis 1New King James Version (NKJV)

The History of Creation
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep.
And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Proverbs 8:22-31New King James Version (NKJV)

22 “The Lord possessed me at the beginning of His way,
Before His works of old.
23 I have been established from everlasting,
From the beginning, before there was ever an earth.
24 When there were no depths I was brought forth,
When there were no fountains abounding with water.
25 Before the mountains were settled,
Before the hills, I was brought forth;
26 While as yet He had not made the earth or the fields,
Or the primal dust of the world.
27 When He prepared the heavens, I was there,
When He drew a circle on the face of the deep,
28 When He established the clouds above,
When He strengthened the fountains of the deep,
29 When He assigned to the sea its limit,
So that the waters would not transgress His command,
When He marked out the foundations of the earth,
30 Then I was beside Him as a master craftsman;

And I was daily His delight,
Rejoicing always before Him,
31 Rejoicing in His inhabited world,
And my delight was with the sons of men.

Flat earthers say the Antarctic is a great wall of ice , a ring of ice encircling the outer part of the flat earth, which holds in the oceans.

I always thought earth was flat, if it was round how could it be possible for our Aussie friends to live head down, now I know they are not as the earth is flat. Thank you so much, so many year I was told earth was round, what an hoax!

Gotcha, Craig. The old deflection ploy!

I just had a thought having to do with the flat earth theory. I believe that my beach recliner is close to one edge of the earth. With the clear view I can see to the other side of the earth. To share my visions I will post a thread on TF entitled Don's View from the Beach. In it I shall share pearls of wisdom with those with a thirst for the truth. You don't have to thank me for this. It is just my way of giving back.

Good heavens, Trump only won yesterday and we are already into the flat earth society.

We are not exactly entering the age of enlightenment I fear. Perhaps Neil Armstrong should be prosecuted(posthumously) for falsely claiming to have walked on the moon.

Personally, I am looking into building a offshore wall around Oz to stop the tides wearing away my antifoul paint.

Greetings,
Mr. AG. Whilst taking the chance of having this thread moved to OTDE I offer the following opinion... We have been in the flat earth society since June 15th 2015...

Right? And we accuse the middle-east of 5th century behavior?

What? He really went to the moon? IMPOSSIBLE! I saw the real footage on youtube, it was made in studio, come on, be serious!
