I don't think you're visualizing what you're talking about, nor do I think you have any idea how planes actually fly.

So according to the FE model, the distance between South America and Australia is very far. According to the RE model, the distance should be much closer. How long are flights from the south of South America to the south of Australia?

And any other combination of this small subset of major cities in the southern hemisphere. But every other major city in the world, pretty much, has a direct flight between it. Los angeles to paris? no problem.

How do you reconcile this, you crazy round earth sheeple? Really gonna just tell me its all a coincidence and there's "no demand" and the airlines are just like that? But yet there's demand for nonstop flights between virtually every other city in the world? Watch the vid for yourself, and google it for yourself.

I don't know how you feel, but I don't like being lied to.

A quick google tells me I can get a direct flight from Sao Paulo to Johannesburg and from Sydney to Santiago.

Re: The biggest lie: Revisiting Heliocenticisim and a Flat Earth for the first time

Ok, I found a direct flight between two of the cities mentioned. Joburg, south africa and sydney, australia have a direct flight, under 12 hours. That is a long ****in way on the flat earth, pretty much the whole distance.

OP, How do you explain this nonstop flight from quantas airlines? If you flew this flight yourself, would you believe this is enough to prove a RE?

I don't feel google is above faking their results, but this is a dagger if this flight really exists. I'd have to personally go on it to be 100% sure, and who knows maybe I will someday, but occam's razor again says the simplest explanation is the best one. Somehow someone is making money off this flat earth nonsense, because it seems unlikely google would fake this one flight but not several others and if its not fake then its real and we can easily go on it.

It's not that the flight from Sydney to Johannesburg is so fast, it's that most other flights are artificially slowed in support of the conspiracy.

obviously pilots are in on it. if every kid around the world that goes into science in college is in on it then paying off the pilots' union is relatively easy peazy.

On the same page as that airplane video was a link to how Robin Williams was killed by the Illuminati.

Well, the moon sure looks like a disc to me.

My question is why do these gods, who created this earth disc, torture us with petty stuff like taxes and lack of wi-fi accessibility.

I love that this is somehow a real thing and that there are people out there who are literally so gullible they will swallow anything.

Well, "we" all swallowed that the world was flat for thousands of years. And religion, with zero science, still seems very much in vogue.

People believing in magic or whatever before scientific discovery isn't anything abnormal, IMO.

They believe it in now.

Virginia Mary. Jesus. Prophets. Noah's Arc. Adam and Eve.

Magic?

Seems not much different than flat earth. In fact, my visual perception is flat earth is more likely than any religion. The moon appears to my eyes as a perfect disc.

Check the planes that fly those routes. All are the new latest models. Which are obviously faster. Coincidence?

Presented with two choices.

1) World is flat

2) Virgin Mary gave live birth to God's son to die for our sins. Only way to heaven is to believe in Jesus as your savior. Otherwise you go to hell for eternity.

Hmmm. Both seem pretty far fetched. You are definitely more likely to be deemed a lunatic though if you choose 1, so choice 2 is the safer option just to fit in with society.

Lol you got me, I'm back in, boys.

The new models clearly can go joburg to sydney or joburg to sao paolo. Not only are they faster, they can carry more fuel as well.

I mean this is obviously just a big troll. But I can't help but ask, what is the troll explanation for seeing different constellations in the different hemispheres?
