I noticed some folks in c/Conspiracies/p/15IXWXnIo6 arguing about the shape of the Earth. It doesn't look to be in bad faith, so I create this post for anyone interested.

Personally, looking at the Sun (ouch) and the Moon is enough for me.

A circle is not a sphere and the lights in the sky have nothing to do with the shape of the floor

So if the moon is a flat circle how thick is it? Explain how gravity would act upon such a shape. Explain how such a shape was formed using the laws of gravity, mass and atomic physics. Actually, don't bother, it's a rhetorical question. You chumps will just say some illuminate has created holograms or some other bull shit conspiracy theory to keep us ignorant. For what purpose, none of you can explain.

We don’t have to explain any of that. Flat earth is an observation it’s easy. Your model is the ones that requires such stupid explanations lmao

Oh, gee, strong case you make. Well, I'm convinced.

Why would I have to convince you. Flat earth is an observation, no one claims to have a complete model if you can’t see that then theirs no helping you. Globe earth needs the explanations Example: why don’t I feel the earth spinning? Example: why don’t I see any curvature? Example: how does the moon glow brighter than any rock we have on earth? Example: why does the moon travel the same path as the sun Example: why is the sun and moon the same size Example: why do we have the same constellation for thousands of years Example: how do you achieve gas pressure next to a vacuum Example: how do lasers travel hundreds of miles over earth curvature Example: why don’t planes account for earth curve or spin Example: why do countless emergency landing not make sense on a globe and line up with the flat earth Example: what is gravity

I noticed you never bothered to answer the 'what purpose' part of my post, you're so dumb.

You can't explain how moon was formed

Yes, actually I can: https://theconversation.com/how-the-moon-formed-new-research-133204

Gravity doesn't exist

No idiot, it does.

which is debunked completely

By no one with any credentials or academic credibility.

Its not hard to use the fake science to argue other points. Shills like you do it all the damn time.
