Flat Earth is one of the more obvious psyops. Eric Dubay seems to be the origin of the more recent iteration. Literally, who? Am I right? He’s some rando living in the Phillipines.

Essentially the argument is “NASA lies, therefore Flat Earth.” Drools on self

Flat Earth guru: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=g8zwFM5TCSs

Just as much a psyop as the alt-right and Alex “They’re Turning the Frogs Gay” Jones. Even when they tell the truth, they manage to make inquisitive people who challenge the establishment sociopaths look like idiots via guilt by association (thanks Mockingbird Media).

Yea. Just disregard all the distance proofs that prove you aren't living on a 25,000 mile circumference ball.

Its flat. Deal with it.

“Bro, why can I see Mt. Ranier from way over yonder?”

I noticed a while ago that by searching on a physics forum, I’d find these arguments addressed about 15 years ago.

I am convinced that Flat earth pushers have never ever been inside an airplane at 40k feet. If they were, they could look out of the plane and very clearly see the curvature of the earth. That is not proof it's a globe though--that is true

but it IS PROOF that the earth is not fucking flat.

Also, some kids hooked up a camera to a high altitude weather balloon and transmitted the live feed. .this was on youtube. It was a mostly boring video, until it got very very high, then you could see curvature

Flat earthers dismissed this, yet again, as "defects in the camera lens..." and "wide angle lens" (it wasn't)

There is no winning with people who have come to a conclusion before ALL the evidence is presented.

I just wish flat earth people would cease and desist from conspiracy forums because they distract from REAL conspiracies with junk conspiracies. Of course, that's their GOAL in life

And THAT is how you know who these people actually shill for ...

You sound like how I imagine an actual racist sounded 200 years ago when they were talking about freeing slaves.

Where is the curvature?

very clearly see the curvature of the earth

but it IS PROOF that the earth is not fucking flat.

Seeing is not proof IMO, at that distance we can't really trust our eyes, can we?

What type of discussion are you trying to have here? Reddit is that way if you want to act like an authoritarian.

No, U

What are you doing insisting evidence "can't be trusted"? Shut up, stupid

God forbid I recognize the limits of our vision.

You're right, let's only ask questions at the start but not once the theory is built up.

You aren't recognizing anything besides the fact that your parents are first cousins. Not because you're a flat earth dumbass but because you're such a bitch that you take government money to push bullshit on the internet and deal with assholes like me.

So fuck off

Yeah, you're not trying to learn anything new.

Hope you find help man, I can't imagine being so angry at a stranger.

Thanks for posting this stuff. Once you get past all the but hurt people and kindergarten comments... This is a fascinating subject.

Flat Earth hillbillies are so fucking stupid they don't know latitude and longitude can ONLY be applied to spheres.

Wrong answer, you never shadowed a seat in a wireless communications and instrumentation, electronic engineering class, much less got a degree in it.

I did.

All my communications signals are calculated using the mathematics of a spherical Earth.

I didn't ask you, I told you.

You're so dumb you didn't know Longitude and Latitude are spherical coordinates,

measuring a SPHERE

in two different directions.

Longitude and Latitude lines are IMAGINARY, and I have my ham radio license. I also know how to communicate with out being a complete ass.

Why are you so angry? Has ridiculing people ever worked for you? If you think it has because people stop responding to a thread, it hasn't, they have just given up on talking to you because you are not worth the time.

Good luck in life. I hope you learn a new way to communicate and to reach people, online and in real life.

TheWinningTeam -1 points ago +2 / -3

Your grasp of how latitude and longitude spherical coordinates are derived

is imaginary.

Just shut the fuck up.

Latitude and Longitude are SPHERICAL coordinates.

You are not going to argue, until you somehow mitigate, or impugne,

or escape it.

My engineer buddies dont account for curve on huge projects.

It was a surprise to them too...theyd never. Thought about it. Before.

Here's a "simple test": if the Earth is flat, why hasn't anyone ever found the edge? The fact that the Earth isn't flat was proved by the ancient Greeks, dude. Get over it. This is the Dumbest Conspiracy Theory Ever.

Nobody you know has found it. Or nobody is telling you.. you can't say nobody

“Reeeee NASA can only use CGI to trick people”

“Hey check out this proof which totally overturns our conceptions of reality, I made it on a computer in 1990”

Yeah intill nasa said it was a globe. We didn't know Its flat it doesn't matter at all but its definitely flat according to unmind stream religion for thousands of years

You can tell who is retarded in this thread by seeing if they can wrap their head around this simple proof OR if they result to appeal to ridicule to prove their point.

I am one of the retarded ones. Can you explain what this diagram is supposed to prove? How do you determine "eye level" and the horizon? What distance and height is the white line? Are you using a level or other instruments? I seriously have no idea what this is supposed to show.

You’ll never get any kind of response other than an attack or “jUs watch da video!”

Flattards are fucking feds.

And they’re working overtime in here.

Go find a basketball court. Light a candle and put it anywhere on the court. Hold your phone anywhere else on the court floor. If you can take a picture of the candle it means the earth ain't flat buddy.

Take a flashlight out at night. Take the flashlight and shove it directly up your asshole. nasaholes hate it cuz it proves their "science and facts" are fake and gay
