    I always assumed, since school age in the Sixties, that people who believed the Earth was not round / spherical believed in consequence that it was a cube / cuboid shape.
    Looking at this thread do some people believe it's literally a flat piece of earth with limits?

    As kids we used to always joke about people falling off an edge, and I'd still like to see these people explain or provide photographic evidence of that limit (if they don't believe in conspiracies of information being withheld, mind control etc).

    Of course it's lunacy to deny in the presence of long distance air travel, basic visual cues etc., if they want to deny satellite and computer information and the rest.

    The more interesting aspect of this 'discussion' - pertaining to government conspiracies, mind control etc (and something that has intrigued me a lot longer) is an organisation's actual ability to keep a large secret, known to dozens or hundreds of employees and others, and passed on to their replacements over time. I'm obviously thinking of the Moon landings (Capricorn One) and Roswell .I wouldn't want to offend by even mentioning the Holocaust and 9/11 deniers.

    It would be humanly impossible in my view to prevent a leak.

    How sure are we that up is actually up and down is actually down? If you came from space from our east wouldn't right be up and left be down? :thinking:

    i dont get it...

    Mars is round...
    i am guessing they also believe the Moon is round.
    the Sun is round... but they dont believe he size of it. or distance.
    all of this can be proven.

    where do these big ass round objects go every day? as it goes down the horizon and up the opposite side the next day?

    common sense.. not so common with everyone...

    There's an interesting article at Ars Technica about the recent Flat Earth convention. That might help explain why.

    So it occurred to me that if the Earth was in fact flat (a disc shape?), then the water would naturally fall off the edge, especially if the disc was rotating (or do they not believe it does rotate?)
    Anyway, to stop the flow of water off the edge, that would mean the edge must have a ridge of raised land, which you could walk around continuously. I'd like to ask them if that piece of land has ever been found?

    I think the closest to science they got was like stating that your walkable 'ridge' theory was made of ice (or something, like the Arctic) since it was so close to space. ;)

    A lot of the theories involve the Antarctic continent being the border, so yes, ice and snow keep the water from falling off. I kind of wonder, though: if the giant tortoise upon whose back the Flat Earth rides sneezes, is that where earthquakes come from?

    yeah... they believe the Antarctic is what surrounds the flat earth. and it is closely hid secret by the "man". if anyone trys to look closer..

    they will stop you.
    Divert planes
    control the satellites

    --------------------------------------

    so..do they believe the earth is the bottom of the.. universe?
    what is below us.. or over the edge?
    if they extend their theory out past earth... what is there?
