Just being a complete sheep and believing everything you are told is not good.
And right there is your problem. You've somehow managed to convince yourself that the reason all or the majority of people who believe the world is round do so because "it's just what they've been told, and they're too pathetic and/or weak-willed to question it". What evidence have you got though that this is the case? Have you conducted any research or commissioned surveys to actually establish this? Have you even considered the possibility that the actual reason most/all people believe it is because the basic scientific facts supporting it make overwhelmingly better sense than any of the marginal notions that in some twisted kind of way vaguely point to the Earth possibly being flat? Everything you've posted here so far seems to suggest you haven't. So here's my suggestion for you. Why don't you go away and find some actual evidence that the primary reason people believe the Earth is round is because they're sheeple, and we might have something to discuss. Otherwise, I'll maintain that the case is proven that you're just stirring the conspiracy pot for the sake of stirring, or because of some unspoken agenda, but most certainly not because of some desire to enlighten the rest of humanity. And on that bssis, the best advice I could offer you or anyone else doing the same is to go and stick your spoon somewhere the sun doesn't shine. Clear enough?

Jesus Christ, are you for real? Or maybe I should ask, is Jesus Christ real?


For the sake of having to explain to an idiot again. I've NOT SAID the earth is Flat. Can you understand that point? FFS


All I have said is some of the evidence makes you think that they maybe something behind it. I will believe the earth is round, until I see absolute evidence that it is not.


But for all those saying the Flat earth theory is for nutters, then I want proof, absolute proof of certain things that they believe in.


Proof of God
Proof of Jesus
Proof of the Big Bang


When anyone can prove those things, then they can call people who may believe the earth is flat, total nutters.


Most of the planet (see I said planet and not flat earth) believe in a god (many gods in fact) without one single shred of evidence. We are told from birth that there is one. But how many gods are there? as every different religion believes in a different god. So just how many gods did create the earth? One? Twenty one? Maybe in was a committee?
Wars have raged, and still happen over religion. Wars started all because of some blind faith that their god is the only god that exists. A god that somehow exists with no actual proof.


Maybe all these flat earthers should crowd fund to build a big telescope. Sit it on the coast and point it towards land that should be impossible to see if the earth was indeed round.


If you can see it, the earth is flat.
If you can't, then the earth is round


But just believing everything you are told is stupid. Though you have at least proven that to be true.

The only thing anyone will be questioning after reading this pile of nonsense is either a) your ability to read, or b) your sanity.

Or quite likely a combination of both ...

Can you share one piece of evidence that has made you think the Earth may be flat?
