      Falt Earth'ers don't believe that he is a hero; instead, we believe he is a SHILL. Someone put out there to discredit those that believe in a flat earth. Weird how such a simple tactic can work so easily. You bought it, right? Or, can you think outside the box - using your own brain?
      We're told that those circular patterns of light around Polaris are caused by the rotation of the earth; a movement of *24,901 miles* in 24 hours. Meanwhile, in that same time span, the earth will have moved *1,584,000 miles* on it's purported journey around our sun; and an additional *15,840,000 miles* with our sun on its' purported journey through the galaxy. Not to mention all those stars are moving in their own courses and speeds too.
      How can these stars (photographed using time-lapse photography) *_ONLY SHOW_* trails of light as perfect circles around the north star? While these same images record absolutely no such apparent movement of the earth itself (through the solar system and galaxy)? A lateral movement that is *700 TIMES GREATER* than the simple rotation of the earth! How can they show just *_ROTATIONAL_* movement? Give this one 'minor issue' some real thought.
      It's almost like the earth (upon which that camera is located) actually isn't moving at all, and just the stars above us are. Therefore only one movement is captured. That is what these pictures prove.

      A white man traveling in Uganda looks around and everyone he sees is black, does that prove he must be black too? Military troops crossing a field suddenly notice a sign that has "LAND MINES" written on it, does the fact that they haven't found a single one yet mean there are none? I've never been struck by lightning, so is it safe to keep playing golf in a lightning storm?
      Just because the moon appears to be a sphere doesn't mean stars are. All that it means is that the moon is. It doesn't _mean_ anything more then that.
      Now, you made a claim that "It has been proven by science that the Earth is round". Toward the bottom of this page I have included links to government, military and NASA .pdf documents where they use phrases like "flat, non-rotating earth" or "stationary atmosphere over a flat plain". Along with the below links I provide the page number (for your convenience) where the words can be found.
      So, you need to argue with these guys (.gov .mil .edu) because even their own documents and science is based upon a "flat non-rotating earth". Download the .pdf and do a search for those words. Then ask yourself: Why would these documents and scientists need to take into consideration what does not exist?
      Or, are they taking into account what they know to be reality, even if you've been told the opposite?

      The "sad" thing is that men can use inane verbal devices to question a belief, and most people cannot recognize the tactic. Like claiming that there _must be_ an edge that we can fall off of. Or, using a shill to make all flat earth'ers seem to be crazy.
      There's a saying that goes something like:
      "I'd rather have questions for answers I don't have, then not be able to question the answers I've been given."

    Pathetic. Obviously he's not trying to prove anything except that he's got the balls to fly an experimental rocket. All you have to do to get a view from 30+ thousand feet is buy a ticket. Total BS.
    If you want to see if there is curvature or not, you probably need to be much higher than what commercial airliners carry you. This video means absolutely nothing. Thanks for wasting my time with the click bait title.

    Nobody has ever observed a spinning globe.
    The earth's spin cannot be observed.
    It's impossible for earth to be spinning because we don't have the ramifications of said spin.
    Math dictates that part of the globe is visible at 35,000 feet, but part of a globe is NOT visible at 120,000 feet.
    It's not possible for NASA to observe a spinning globe because the spinning globe cannot be observed.
    NASA lied, Universities lied, the scientists lied, the government lied, the spinning globe is a lie.

      There's one in order to be something flat it would not have to have little bumps in the mountains terrain regular bed no buildings stuff like that would not make it to be able to Flat be able to be flat. So inner core outer core mantle and crust want to be able to Big Sis if the Earth were three flat so there would be so thin it wouldn't be able to produce a magnetic field around the Earth and plus if you watch this is us videos and if you see part of the station's you said curvature and a 300 fisheye lens is it kind of weird that part of the stations are not distorted? Also can we please just solve this can we not fight the conflict and just end this fight about it if the Earth is round or flat and just say it's round we all know it's round.

    All one would have to do to find out is go to Lake Pontchartrain in Louisiana and drive the Causeway. It's a 23.8 mile expanse. When you are in the middle, it's like being in the middle of the ocean; no land in sight. At night, it's even better for study.
    By the way, if you ever HAVE driven it (especially at night) you could NEVER believe the Earth is FLAT.
