Is the Earth really what we are told it is?

Post by gazwilwah » 01 Mar 2018, 02:01

Watched "200 proofs the Earth is not a spinning ball" by Eric Dubay recently, and well..... never thought I would even question it, but I find myself asking this question, is the Earth flat?

You can find the whole film on Youtube.

Tell yourself the answer is "No. The Earth is not flat."
I flew round the world (in aeroplanes) several years ago and I started and finished in Brisbane. If the Earth was flat I would still be going.

This should be in the Just for Fun forum.

Agreed. But even if we get a link and even if we watch it I still know that the Earth is not flat.

Well I guess the phrase "sea level" needs to be reexamined. Also check out "fish eye lense" these lenses make horizons curve, when a normal lense will show a straight horizon (hori-zontal).

What a load of guff, if the earth is not round why havent people fallen off the edge when they have tried to sail around it.

Because gravity still applies?
Even when they sail over the edge onto the next flat part?

We must ask a few of the sailors who have done it if they felt their boat go through a 90 degree angle shortly after leaving Madeira

The theory is that Antarctica surrounds us, An explorer called Admiral Bird said on US TV in the 1950's that he had discovered land the size of the USA beyond Antarctica, soon after that a treaty was signed by all world leaders that nobody is allowed to go anywhere near Antarctica without permission. The military will turn anyone back. that's freedom eh.

But the whole flat Earth thing is not about what Earth is, its about the claim we live on a speeding ball. Did you know NASA does not have a single photo of Earth? every image is a painting, or CGI and they admit this believe it or not.

prove gravity? the argument against that is that things fall to the ground because they are heavier than air, anything lighter than air does not get pulled towards the ground.

Do an experiment with water, see if you can make it curve on the outside of a ball? or bend it? it's not possible at any level because water does not have that ability.
