Flat Earth Versus Spherical Earth

There is more evidence that proves the Earth is flat and that disproves the Earth being spherical. Change my mind.

I agree. As soon as you take into question the integrity of those highest up in NASA and Roscosmos as well as the UN itself, you begin to understand that supernatural vampiric beings reside in the centre of the North Pole and control us.

You think vampire like beings live at the north pole? That's not what you said before. You basically implied there was some kind of gateway or power source there that you could only find if you believed in it. Now what makes you think "vampire like" beings are going to let you pass instead of just feeding on your blood or bioelectricity? What is your plan to kill or befriend these creatures?

If I knew the truth, I certainly wouldn't be typing it but enjoying my immortality and being hush-hush like the rest of the Illuminati.

I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic...

If someone believes that there are "vampire like beings" in actuality, then there, in my opinion, is something wrong.

As a member of the Flat Earth Society it good to note that the recognition that the earth is flat and only appears to be round as a consequence of light contortion, similar to the aurora.

Why is there no Flat Mars Society or no Flat Saturn Society?

Why would we need a Flat Mars or Flat Saturn Society if we can't pass through the firmament?

Side: Flat Earth

This argument was designed as a way of challenging the moonlandings hoax. If we can generate enough noise about flat earth we can poison the well of public discourse. Flat earth brings down the credibility of CreateDebate and the internet as a whole.

It doesn't go unnoticed that both debates are together on createdebate, the one following the other.

However, the link between the flatearthers and NASA, through the CIA will be exposed sooner or later, and at that point the trick will backfire and the hoax will be exposed as well as the attempt to continue the pretence today.

The truth is not a joke. The truth is important. Many of you have attempted to make a joke over this ridiculous idea, but you will not joke about it when you realise how you have been used like puppets. If someone still believes after research that flat earth is the subject of debate, they are not on good terms with reality.

Anyone arguing about it is ignorant of how they are being manipulated. I urge you all to concentrate on debates that are not frivolous and support public debate instead of subverting it.

So when we go to space what are we looking at? A sphere......

Yes, don't you know anything about physics?

What we see from space is a flat sphere.

@Antrim.

You're wrong, the term, a flat sphere is a contradiction in terms.

You should have described the phenomenon to which you refer as a flattened sphere.

This is the mathematically correct terminology to use when explaining this wonder of physical science.

OMG HOW STUPID ARE YOU!?!?!?!?!?!? A SPHERE IS A 3D SHAPE!!!! A SHPERE IS 3 DEMENTIONAL!!! IT IS LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SPHERE TO BE FLAT. DIMWIT, THATS A CIRCLE!!! YOU ARE OVERLY RETARDED. I OBVIOUSLY KNOW MORE ABOUT PHYSICS THAN YOU DO.

The northern and southern hemispheres have two different sets of stars. Someone in Australia will be in darkness, while someone in N America will see the sun. There is also the fact that I have sailed around the Earth by traveling west. None of these are possible with a flat Earth.

What invisible force has kept us from going to the other side then? And there’s a whole shit ton of people that would have to be quiet about it to.

the 'true sky' (bigger than the sky you see which is a projected illusion) meets the ground deep in Antarctica which is a ring around the Earth. The North Pole is the centre, grasp the idea?

If the earth was flat, how come we have satellites showing a spherical earth rotating to see all parts. Would we not see a flying piece of paper? If the earth is flat, explain day and night.

We have visual proof that earth is spherical. Done and dusted.

Please show me this evidence. Also please make sure that your source is trustworthy, and that the picture has not seen any photo shop.

I will, however I understand that you'll just whine about how you believe the whole thing was faked.

Explain to me, if you will, why the whole world is in on some conspiracy that the earth is spherical if it really isn't? What do they gain... every single astronaut, every single scientist from every single country, every single amateur astrologist....what do they gain from arguing that it isn't flat?

You are surfing the internet. Via satellites. Orbiting the earth. Quite literally, the fact that you are reading this is proof that the earth cannot be flat.

"But!" you say. "It could all be buried cables!"

Right now I'm writing this on an aircraft carrier in the Atlantic. No buried cables out here. Trust me, satellites are involved.

1. Why would you share this information that you are on an aircraft carrier?

2. That big thing (sorry I don't know proper term) that houses the control center? That sends signals genius. not through satellites.

Because the fact that my ship is out to sea is unclassified, and the fact that I'm stationed on said ship is unclassified.

And I'm sorry, but if the extent of your knowledge of signal projection off of a ship is "the big thing that houses the control center", I don't consider you qualified to assert that the signal isn't bounced off of a satellite.

"Now that humanity knows quite positively that the Moon is not a piece of cheese or a playful god, the phenomena that accompany it (from its monthly cycles to lunar eclipses) are well-explained. It was quite a mystery to the ancient Greeks, though, and in their quest for knowledge, they came up with a few insightful observations that helped humanity figure out the shape of our planet."

"Aristotle (who made quite a lot of observations about the spherical nature of the Earth) noticed that during lunar eclipses (when the Earth’s orbit places it directly between the Sun and the Moon, creating a shadow in the process), the shadow on the Moon’s surface is round. This shadow is the planet's, and it’s a great clue about the spherical shape of the Earth."
