    i hear a lot about many different conspiracies.. and some have arguable points. It is fun just to hear about them..
    i keep an open mind and see everyone's point of view. "how they might see it that way".

    but Flat-Earth is just plain stupid!!!!
    how do they ignore so much evidence.. or create things in their mind's eye.

    read one part of this conspiracy ..
    is that the flat Earth is surrounded by Antarctica. And the edges are controlled by the government so that no one will see it.
    LOL

    he dont have to send out satellites ($63 million and up) to prove earth is round.
    1. use a weather balloon!
    2. rent a jet, and fly it in only 1 direction
    3. time zones.. i am sure he has friends in many countries (time zones). Call them and ask for time and daylight? how can some have daylight and some night?

    how do these people explain away the science? do you know?

    stupid can not be cured!!!

    If you put a ball on the ground it would forever roll downhill if the earth was round. :p

    That's just plain dumb. Everyone knows that we live on a disc shaped world, supported by 4 great elephants on the top of a giant turtle, floating through space.

    If the Earth is flat... lets figure out how to get to the other side. We've about used this side up already. I guess we'd all be upside down on the other side... never mind....

    on the other side.... would there be more fossil fuel and less pollution?

    or we could ship all our trash and pollution to the other side!

    You know what they say... the grass is always greener on the other side. Even Jim Morrison wanted to break on through to the other side... and maybe he made it.

    I don't know how they would really explain away a curved horizon. If you stand on a fourteener like Mt Evans or Pikes Peak, you can see the curvature.

    From a plane - I'd think they had their noses buried in some kind of entertainment and nothing for the mind never mind look out the window.

    We have a molten iron core in the earth - maybe some seeped out when these idiots were born making them ironheads.

    I think a lot of them are firm believers in the Bible. The other ones, that aren't religious, I'm not so sure about.

    I'll start off 'Science for me growing up, was never so much fun and interesting till I had kids'.

    Believe what you want but the Earth is round. We are held down by gravity. We are not just walking a flat straight line here on Earth that's all I know,lol

    Just some unknown "rapper" trying to garner publicity and fame for himself with ridiculous sensationalist stories? Is it fake news possibly, or clickbait?

    Actually even ardent creationists I've met have never held that the Earth is flat. Maybe you have a different type in the US? I've always assumed it was just some particularly contrarian conspiracy theory mindset behind it (though I've never met anyone in real life who subscribes to that belief anyway).

    Do flat Earth types not use GPS though? Because satellites won't orbit a flat plane very easily. Or do they assume it works on ley lines and that the stuff about satellites is just a story made up by "the government" or whoever is supposed to be lying for unfathomable reasons?

    BTW the ancient Greeks knew the world was a sphere, and contrary to popular myth so did Europeans in the middle ages. The reason people thought Columbus was doomed was not because they thought he'd sail off the edge, but because they thought he'd run out of supplies before he got to India - and if the Americas hadn't been in the way they would have been right.

    They also believe the earth is only 6000+ years old. Some Scottish preacher in the 18th century arrived at that figure by studying the "begats" from the time man appeared.

    They aren't studying the Bible as a whole -
    "And the earth was without form...: "
    Nothing around to measure it by except man.

    Man only appeared in the last second on the last day of December if you use the year as a guide to earth events.

    GPS and satellites..
    i would imagine they believe that they are stationary .. in space. Like some satellites are in "orbit".
    they just dont understand how orbit works.

    yes.. strict bible believers do use it as a timeline for creation... and it is less than 10k yrs old.

    and since the bible does NOT mention dinosaurs.. they do NOT exits and it is a gov hoax!
    in college i had a crush on this very cute girl..who was very catholic. and we argued about the existence of dinosaurs. After that, i could not ever take her seriously anymore and lost all appeal to me.

    Young Earth creationism isn't a Catholic teaching, whatever your ex might have thought. Though dinosaurs definitely do appear in the Bible: doves appear in both old and new testaments, for example (the question of whether you should refer to birds as dinosaurs is pretty settled in scientific circles these days).

    Though I always find it ironic that one of the older sub-classifications within the dinosauria was between "bird-hipped" and "lizard-hipped", since birds, as a subclass of therapods, would belong to the "lizard-hipped" group. I guess that's what happens when you name things before you have all of the information...

    And there were giants in the earth in those days - I always took that to mean Dinosaurs.

    The Earth is indeed flat. The mole people who live on the underside, have clearly infiltrated every corner of our civilization. They continue to masquerade themselves as high ranking members of our society. They spread falsehoods of a globular planet. They spread their mind controlling chemtrails to alter the perception of truth. Luckily, the mindless are immune to mind controlling chemtrails.
