In the venn diagram of people who comment "fake" on every youtube video in existence and flat earthers, the overlap has to be 100%

Bill Hicks summed it up correctly as do the buddhists that we are all part of consciousness experiencing itself from a different perpective...look at an atom you retrad, it is all empty space, everything is energy, we are just SLOW energy that manifests as solid and we are made out of the same stuff as squirrles...you are being lied to by satansits and pedophies and the royal famioy is all lizards who rape kids...there was a video of a neked teenager escaping frombuuckingham palace the otehr day.... if you do not believe me check out alex jones who decries energy vampires who feed on otr misery on the podcast with joe rogan..hard to find...it gets blocked all the time by the powers that be...

Moo,

May you please release the name of the weed strain you are smoking? I need to get on your level.

And @jmakn, when a venn diagram is split equally among the three options it equals 33.3333%, so please, GTFO with venn diagrams

Cool Re: Hoo boy: the flat earth, "scientism", Satan, and the Transgender agenda. Wake up sheeple!

So the "sun" video which supposedly proves something (other than atmospheric refraction of course)? I don't see how it fits with your flat earth and the sun as a spotlight theory.

As the spotlight moves away from me its shape would distort into an oval, it wouldn't stay round. When it got to the edge of my viewing it wouldn't slowly start to have the bottom of it cut off like it was reaching the horizon, it would continue to get flatter and flatter until it was gone.

Also, when the sunlight comes through a hole in the clouds we can see the rays even though we can't see the sun itself. Even if the spotlight is not shining down on us we should still be able to see the rays after the light has moved past us.

What's the explanation for why travel times are the same when you go further south? According to the globe, the distance between Santiago, Chile and Montevideo, Uruguay is 835 miles. They are both between 33 and 35 degrees South latitude. The flight time is 1 hour 40 minutes (at 500 mph). The stated trip time according to the booking site is:

LATAM Airlines Group logo
3:50p - 6:05p
LATAM Airlines Group
2h 15m
SCL - MVD
Nonstop

The distance between Tuscon and Dallas is 824 miles. They are between 32 and 33 degrees North latitude. If your flat earth model is correct, why is the flight time 1 hour and 39 minutes (at 500mph)? The stated trip time according to the booking site is:

American Airlines
Flight 302
Economy
2h 13m
5:10am Tue May 2 TUS
9:23am Tue May 2 DFW

Shouldn't the Southern flight take longer since it's a longer distance according to your model?

pudley,

It should be obvious that in order to keep up the global delusion (pun intended) and misinformation pilots are all co-conspirators who plan their routes to match the expected flight times/etc for globes.

You're joking but that's like a legitimate explanation for them

I've tried really, really hard to understand the mountains of water post but still can't make out what point he's trying to make. That on a curved surface, water wouldn't lay flat or something? It doesn't, it lays on the curved surface of the earth. It's called gravity.

On the ocean you can only see about ~6 miles away and stuff disappears over the horizon. Something something light refraction.

I thought the ideas behind the flat earth people aren't that they truly believe it's flat, it's that it's fun to argue and troll people over the obvious.

e.g. Like Santa Clause and little kids

So which distance is correct? The Northern or Southern? He should be able to tell me.

What they're trying to say is this:

Look at a clock. Say LA is at the 2 and Tokyo is at the 10. If the earth was round then the water would settle to the bottom and you would have a flat surface across the top. In theory you would be able to see LA from Tokyo and vice versa. But we are saying that there is a "mound" of water between the two cities. How do we explain that?

It shows how dumb they are because in this scenario Brazil and Angola would be at about 4 and 6 and somehow the water would (wouldn't?) drain out the bottom and we could (couldn't?) see them across the Atlantic?

He had to because the liberals were trying to steal his children for exposing the truth, they were going to put his children in work camps. So Alex sacrificed himself and his image to save his kids. So brave.

Idk, look at the flat earth map. Those distances are correct. Thankfully in the universe of flat maps, you can just draw a line and know the actual distance between things! No projections needed like in this stupidly overcomplicated round earth theory. The actual distance has nothing to do with the time in airplane, because as discussed above the time in airplane is used to conceal the flat nature of the earth by artificially staying in air for the time people expect on the lol-round earth.

How does flat earth explain the Cavendish experiment?

And how does it explain this:

"gravitational acceleration being about 0.5% greater at the poles than at the equator."

Re: Hoo boy: the flat earth, "scientism", Satan, and the Transgender agenda. Wake up sheeple!

pudly,

Idk it seems that FE people are happy to say that gravity comes from the earth constantly accelerating up, which would mean that we're constantly moving upward at many many times the speed of light by now. Or, that gravity doesn't exist and is just electromagnetism, which would mean that idk, there's a big pile of metal under the pole (lol you think there's a south pole? do you even flat earth?).

Right, but if it's all one piece how is the middle accelerating faster than the rest? At this point earth should be shaped like a bowl.

I wonder if most flat-earthers are in the 110-120 IQ range - just smart enough to hit peak Dunning-Kruger effect, or if they're in the 90 IQ range - not smart enough to follow along with how things work. Either way I'm sure they're >90% Trumpers.

I love how all those hundreds of thousands of pilots are dutifully flying those complicated fake routes and confirming the fake logs with thousands of controller towers around the world and no one ever screws up or even fesses up to their wives or anything of that nature

gotta be subliminal messaging embedded directly in flight simulators or something
