I think the "All people involved in the globe conspiracy" is one of the most amazing pieces of literature I think Ive ever read. I imagine they must all be sat around their laptops in their lead lined houses and tinfoil hats.

Had a couple of things pop up on Facebook about this. So I watched some videos.

Two things I noticed above all were that some of the arguments did make sense as they were presented. Although obviously there was no counter to them in the videos.

And also that these flat earth dudes must be the most bullish, certain, arrogant and twattish conspiracy theorists I've ever come across. Not just that people who reckon we live on a globe are wrong. That they're absolute bloody idiots and should be pitied for being so.

Tis a piss take, surely? I can't believe there's enough people to warrant a society.

A single unitary authority for urban Dorset
I love how apparently the International Space Station is fake and all the footage filmed is staged in film studios. Ignoring how with your own naked eye you can see and track the bloody thing across our sky.

This quote is great:
"Any drawing showing a circular orbit of an object around the Earth is bogus. Geostationary satellites are not only physically but also conceptually impossible."

I hope none of these guys use the GPS in their cars or on their phones. Or uses satellite television to watch Fox news.

If anyone fancies further amusement on this subject, I highly recommend checking this out:
http://www.rogermwilcox.com/square_earth.html

For example:

The Book of Revelation, chapter 7, verse 1, makes the following unmistakable statement about the shape of the Earth: "After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree." This clearly shows that the Earth has exactly four corners.

Well, I'm convinced.

To be fair this flat earth society is right, the vast majority of the population just accept what they are told is true.

No No it is a serious society, they truly believe in the flat earth and whats more they have actual evidence to anyone who may say otherwise.

Why don't they then stand on top of a high building where you can actually see the curvature of the Earth? Peasants.

I'd advise glasses if you can't see it then. I'll give you another example then, look out over the horizon and watch a ship come over towards you, you will see the top of the masts first before the rest of the ship appears as it moves closer, that wouldn't happen on a flat surface and is why it's never been believed that Earth is flat. Back in the classical times, upto and including Columbus et al all knew the Earth was spherical (an obloid spheroid to be technical), and we all know it today. This is a piss take by those who believe in creationism and the superiority of the white race, nothing more.

LOL you don't know much about this Salty, they are not saying it is as flat as a pancake mate, have a look into it it's quite interesting.

Especially the stuff about the south pole and the race for land.

Do you know most maps show Europe to be larger than it actually is as it always used to be magnified in order to show trade routes clearer as that's what world maps were initially solely used for.

The world is also round you fucking wally, because people have taken pictures from space and guess what, it's round, it doesn't just sit there like a massive coaster

I'm most curious about what they think the people who perpetuate the supposed myth that the earth is round hope to gain from it. I mean my life and those of millions of others would be exactly the same if we lived on a round earth or a flat one.

Why has no explorer who reached the north pole ever shown a compass on screen.............it would make remarkable viewing as all directions would point north..........the truth maybe that there is only a north pole sitting at the centre of a flat earth.

people would surely want to go to edge of a flat earth and look over the edge?

flat earthers say the Antarctic is the edge of the flat earth with the north pole as centre...............guess which piece of the earth is being fought over the most and has been for centuries?
