The earth is flat. You can't see the earth curving, Not even from the sky. If the earth were round, We would walk right off at vareous points in the world. Give it your best shot, I have more factors then I need to put in this argument.

Wrong.

Either 99. 99% of physicists are stupid and incoherent, Unable to use technology or this idea of the earth being flat is.

If a sphere is large enough, Then if you are tiny enough on it, It will appear flat. Simple perspective.

There is a thing called gravity, Which can be shown through various equations and experiments. Why else do things drop? Due to its nature, Gravity would not work on a flat earth.

I will await your other factors and arguments.

How do you know, Are you physiologist, Or scientist of some sort? Well the government knows alot more then we do, They just keep secrets and try to make us believe in lies because they are hiding the real truths. Your gonna need to come up with more evidence then what you have already. Because it is true the earth os really big and we are tiny. But how can the earth stay in one place if gravity exists? Now there is a contradiction already in youre argument. Just because you have lots of fancy words in your argument does not mean you know more then I do. I'm 20 years old guy and I have something more to say:

Lets say youre right. Say there is gravity and all the 99. 99% psychologists are right, And we live on a ball. Then our earth would be sitting on something else for support because gravity would be a pulling factor. Then also if we travel the world, We will come to a place (where the support wouldbe) and we would fall in the direction that support was coming from. . Now does that sound logical too you? When you think of it, It is dumb. Lets continue here. : lets say im right. The earth is flat and there is lots of evidence right because it's all around us. You fly a jet in the sky, You see across the earth, There is nothing going down. And you can't see planets or stars if you look straightaway. Give me some more arguments I can shred. How old are you?

How do you know, Are you, Physiologist,

physiologists don't study the shape of the earth.

They just keep secrets and try to make us believe in lies

Provide evidence for this assertion.

But how can the earth stay in one place if gravity exists?

I don't have to explain this, Physicists already have. The sun's gravitational pull with other factors keeps the earth in place.

Just because you have lots of fancy words in your argument does not mean you know more then I do.

There is a thing called google translate. . .

99. 99% psychologists are right

Psychologists don't study the shape of the earth. . .

Now does that sound logical too you?

Your explanation doesn't make a lick of sense.

there is lots of evidence right because it's all around us.

Be specific, Otherwise, This is a useless argument.

And you can't see planets or stars if you look straightaway.

Umm. . . YEAH! Human eyes can't see forever!


How old are you?

15, You have an issue?




If the earth is flat, Ph. D astrophysicists are completely incapable of simple math.

#1. I assume you are correct, Physiologists don't study the shape of the earth.

#2. I don't have any evidence that the government is lying to us.

#3. That makes sense.

#4. Yes, That is what I use as well.

#5. Psychologists have absolutely nothing to do with the shape of the earth.

#6. Your right, My explanation is ridiculous.

#7. This is a useless argument on my end, No doubt.

#8. True

#9. Cool. I have no issue at all. At least, I hope I haven't caused you any offense.

I will have you know that the flat earth society has members around the globe. I'm sure you can find a member near you:) They specialize in the act of being astronomers and physicists and will easily prove their point when they sail to the edge of earth where they will find some Russian kid hanging off the edge with a selfie stick.

I'm quite impressed with your grammar and choice of words:)

Outside of this debate, Are you being serious? I just noticed that this debate was in the funny category. OOf.

Also, Most flat-earthers would agree that there relatively is no "edge. "

Outside of this debate, I am totally kidding. I wanted to see what kind of reaction I'd get. That is why I put it in the funny category. :D

I like your responses.

"the moon is on a ellipse elliptical orbit. Https://www. Youtube. Com/watch? V=QciLVJZNq4c&t=32s yet the moon phase to moon phase is always equal amount of days apart. Easy win for the flat earth. Want more? "
If you actually studied moon phases, You would know that the lunar cycle is 29. 5 days, Whereas the lunar orbit takes 27. 3.
First, This proves your ignorance.
Second, It disproves your claim. Lunar phases are equal amounts of time apart because they are fully independent of the lunar orbit.

Okay, I see.

And damn, All those things Unstoppable said was their argument about flat earth? Lol okay. I'll challenge them, Hopefully they accept.

@Kvng_8 Yes, I'm totally just messing around. I am totally pro for a globe earth. I just wanted to come up with a ridiculously stupid statement on my end of the debate, Bad grammar added for effect. It's all for fun and laughs.

You should challenge @Unstoppabletruth to debate, I'd like to see what happens:D

on the globe the stars are far away that they hit earth parallel. / the north star stays in the same position even when the earth is on the opposite side of the sun 180 million miles away. / 2 people 180 million miles apart should be able to look at the north star through straws and they would be holding their straws parallel with eachothers straws. And even if they are on the same earth. Example someone at the north pole looking directly up at the north star through a straw would be holding their straw parallel to someones straw pointing at the north star on the horizon from the equator. And this is for anywhere on earth/ someone at the 45 north latitude looking at the north star through a straw should be holding his straw parallel with the straws at the north pole and equator looking at the north star. WE DO NOT SEE THE STARS IN PARALLEL LINES. You can test this yourself by holding 2 straws parallel 5 inches apart and see if you can see the same star through both straws held parallel. :D or grab binoculars and see if you can focus the same star in the center of both binocular lenses by opening and closing one eye. This is a big knock knock joke. We can measure the angle of the stars from your backyard. ALSO if we see the stars in parallel lines the "star constellation" directly behind the moon at your location should should be directly behind the moon for every other location on earth that night. - another thing is a star constellation that sets directly west at your location should set directly west at every other location on earth. :o

the globe earth model tells us on the day of the equinox " day when earth is not tilted" the sun rises Directly East and sets Directly West. And they tell us the sun moves in a straight path across our sky everywhere on earth on that day. Lets say you are on the 45 North latitude. On the day of the equinox. The sun should rise dead east and move in a straight line path across your sky towards directly west and the sun should reaches highest in your sky 45 degrees above your south horizon. . . . Ok Then WHERE IS THE STAR THAT MOVES LIKE THIS. . On the globe earth there should be a star in your sky anywhere on earth that moves in a straight line path EVERY NIGHT. - think of using a telescope on a stand that cannot tilt up or down. You should be able to line this telescope up with a certain star in your sky and follow it from directly east to directly west with out needing to adjust the tilt of the telescope. - if you are at the equator of the globe earth using this telescope to follow the straight path star you would be laying on your back to follow the straight path star that moves east to west and reach highest in the sky DIRECTLY above your head. -now lets look at the north pole. The straight path star when standing at the north pole should be Directly on your horizon. / you can follow the star in a straight path by lining up your telescope "that can't tilt up or down" parallel with the ground to follow the straight path star making a 360 around you. - now lets look at the 45 North latitude. :) when at the 45 N, Latitude the straight path star that moves east to west should reach highest in your sky 45 degrees above your south horizon. Tell me ladies and gentleman. WHERE IS THE STAR IN YOUR SKY THAT MOVES IN A STRAIGHT LINE PATH! I live on the 50 north latitude there should be a star in my sky that moves east to west in a straight line path that reach highest in my sky 40 degrees above my south horizon

the zodiac are equal days apart the earth apparently orbits the sun on a ellipse orbit. /the sun is not in the middle of the earths orbit. This would mean spring equinox to summer solstice should take longer than fall equinox to winter solstice/ unless the earth orbit changes speed during its orbit. How ever. The zodiac / the star constellations change at equal speed. The zodiac star constellations are all equal days apart.

another slap in the face for the globe earth is the moon phases alone. . . You can google image 1000's of pictures of a crescent moon seen at night time and a full moon during the day. A crescent moon can be seen due south of you between 9 pm and 3 am when the moon is apparently on the opposite side of the earth as the sun. . . Here is a diagram on how the globe earth moon phases work https://www. Wwu. Edu/skywise/a101_moonphases. Html
