    I'd be interested to hear your opinions on some other controversial topics given that avatar on yours. I mean anybody who questions that one must have certainly fell down a couple other rabbit holes along the way.

    I've got opinions up the wazoo. Some good, some bad, and lots of ugly.

    I've seen some compelling arguments for and against whether the earth is flat or spherical. It seems like you can see too far off into the distance beyond the horizon if the earth was really a ball ~25,000 miles in circumference just based on high school trigonometry, but then I don't know how radio frequency waves that depend on line of sight can be explained to drop off on a flat earth. Check out a YouTube channel by Jtolan to see what I mean about the far sight distance that shouldn't be possible. I will entertain almost any idea just as a thought experiment, plus I know the government lies.

    The thing about sight is that globe believers mistakenly believe they can see an infinite distance. Thus, the end of their sight must be the beginning of Earth's curvature away from them.

    For example, a ship going out to sea sailing away disappears from view due to curvature. This is demonstrably false since a camera, binoculars, or a telescope brings the ship back into view.

    At this point, even after seeing proof demonstrated in a video, they scoff, and simply move on to their next phony baloney lie pounded into their skulls by the indoctrination center they attended as kids.

    If you look at footage taken from a high altitude balloon outfitted with a wide angle lens, a level horizon is plainly visible.

    The globe believer scoffs again stating the balloon isn't high enough to show curvature. Great.

    But show a video from an airplane at a lower altitude with the fish eye lens showing what appears to be curvature, then they eat it up.

    So, we see a view of Earth from over 100,000 feet with no curvature visible.
    Then we see curvature visible from a much lower altitude clearly due to lens distortion, and like water off a duck's back, they gleefully ignore the shot taken from higher altitudes as if it never existed.

    I can't have any sort of productive argument with someone like that.

    Next, there's water. It doesn't bend, bulge, or curve. Yet, on a globe model, water must bend due to curvature. But no where on Earth can you find water that can bend as it must to conform to Earth's ball shape.

    The globe believer response? Crickets. Silence.

    Finally, a response, as if awakened from a stupor, "Ummmm. It must curve somewhere."

    Then they move on. Again. No surprise.

    What about the movement of the Earth?
    NASA says we are spinning at just ovro a thousand miles per hour and hurtling through space at 66,600 mph. Not a suspicious number, by the way. Nope. Not at all. And that actornot who set a record by spending 666 days in space?
    Just a mere coincidence. Nothing to see here. Let's move on.

    Great.

    Ok, if we're on a spinning ball hurtling through space at warp speeds, then how come we can't feel or measure this?

    "There are calculations."

    What calculations?
    Based on what?
    Wouldn't the mathematical calculation proving Earth's movement be a well-known formula?
    Wouldn't the mathematicians who came up with this formula be famous?
    Wouldn't this formula be taught in school?

    The most coherent reply you will receive is that the calculation is based from stars.

    Great.

    So, if the Earth is hurtling through space at warp speeds, then how is it that our view of the stars in the heavens never changes?

    More silence. Or you will receive some intellectually dishonest reply that does not dazzle with brilliance, but instead baffles with bull ####.

    And I can go on. But I won't. For now.

    One more amusing anecdote.

    One guy, here, on this very forum, attempted to convince me I am wrong about flat Earth by presenting an online article about the United States' plan to build a space force.

    Really. No joke.

    Sounds great. If you're twelve.

    I, myself, can make plans to eat the Empire State building. Does that mean it's going to happen?

    As if planning alone to do something proves that something into existence.

    Then there's the neverending supply of computer generated images that are passed off as being real because they from NASA.

    Oh, boy.

    How do you explain circumnavigation of the Earth?

    You can't feel it because the Earth is your reference frame and it's enormous. You can't see the stars moving because they're so far away that you'd have to be taking precise measurements over hundreds of years to notice by eye even the closest stars move. We can measure the rotation of the Earth with extremely accurate gyroscopes. This meme needs to die already. We're already stupid enough as a species.

    I know NASA has been caught lying and faking many things, it's just not well published for obvious reasons. They didn't fly 3 idiots in a tin foil covered garbage can with 1960's computing power to the Moon and back and a lot of people know that, whoever gets interested enough to look into it for more than 15 minutes. They like to laugh at that Sibrel guy for getting punched by Buzz Aldrin, which I'll admit was pretty funny, but then proceed to ignore the damning evidence that what we were shown doesn't add up.

    So then you start wonder if anybody ever really has seen what our world looks like from afar, and I do not consider 120,000 ft altitude in a weather balloon "far" enough to make a conclusion. That is only like 25-26 miles up or approximately half the distance across Rhode Island. If you picture in your mind how small Rhode Island is compared to what the Earth allegedly looks like, take half that distance and stand it on end, you realize that very well may not be far enough away to draw any conclusions.

    Like I said there is some compelling evidence that seems well explained by the Earth being a sphere, then there are some compelling points that make you question it. I know for fact I have never seen what it looks like from a distance and am pretty sure you never have either, so I make it a habit not to get too confident about what I think I "know" about anything. In fact it's a very small and exclusive club of people who have ever even been up in space, and most of them are high level Freemasons, which I'm sure is just a coincidence.
