  1. Why don't we segregate this flat earthers into a separate society and lets see which society will progress more! This would probably settle who's correct.

  2. If Earth really was a globe, rivers such as the Mississipi would have to flow uphill to reach the sea – flowing uphill 11 miles in its 3,000-mile length.

    If Earth really was a globe, airline pilots would constantly have to adjust their controls so as not to fly off into space..

    If Earth really is spinning, bullets fired upwards would land hundreds of feet Westwards. They don’t..

    End of discussion…

  3. Flat Earth is as insane as believing we've never landed on the moon or that all white people are racist. It falls into a special type of loony.

  4. Has anyone in the question section been to space? or have any family relatives/friends who have? just a general question please I'm intrigued do tell…

  5. Eart Flat Bullshit in one second ….. Mike Horn , Pole2Pole expedition 2016/2017 Monaco To Africa,Africa to Antartide, Antartide to Australia…. ….i think if you will tell to Mike Horn that the world is flat he will punch you till your face will Flat …ahahah

  6. I would guess that most of the flat-earthers live in countries where they can not trust their government and have therefore lost the trust for scientists, media and politics entirely. I agree that media has went south, but I have never heard of any flat-earther here in Sweden, though, I believe some exist here too. However, when you have studied physics and many of the formulas depend on the fact that the earth must be round, then it is really hard to not believe in it. It even makes it harder when you try out the formulas and they do agree with the outcome of the experiment. Besides, if the earth is flat, how could all of the world leaders be able to even cooperate to hold the fact hidden from the population? Remember people, all politicians or leaders are not bad, and therefore the truth would have been told long ago. I mean, do you know how many scientists which have died, just because they wanted the people to know the truth?

  7. IF earth was flat?
    Then The core wont. fit in.

    and have you fucking seen a gas giant or ice giant flat huh?
    Tell me

    And a star is not flat to…And you are crazy If the world is flat.
