    Approx flying time from Detroit to Rome, 9 hours. Approx flying time from Buenos Aires to Johannesburg, 9 hours. Hmmm. Yet the earth is supposed to be flat like a pizza? So how can it be the same flying time?

    So they do experiments far away from the supposed edge instead of flying to it and returning with footage. Funny how they stay away from there.

      When you look at a drop of water falling through the air in slow motion, it is a sphere. Also the shape of soft walled cells, atoms, and soap bubbles. Do you know why? For a said volume, the sphere is the solid with the smaller surface area. The smaller the surface area, the less energetic the state. That's why any liquid will assume the shape of a sphere when the resultant force acting on them is zero. Take a look at some zero G footage (of people free falling inside of aeroplanes). And we're not even talking about gravity.

I tell you if Cave Prime was still around in your dimension he probaly would have shot your missle down cor being so dumb.

    how come anyone who tries to challenge flat earth just revert to saying, "youre stupid" or "its just round" Although science may be out there, no one ever brings it to the table. I seen someone even try to fight someone because they did not want them to even say it was flat? Now that is stupid, If you know for a fact and seen with your OWN science, then let them be. Truth will always reveal itself, so why argue? because people don't even know themselves, thats why people argue-simply because they accept things without their own involvement or scientific evidence. So when flat-earthers come with science, the spherical society just calls them stupid. i mean look at the comments below...... If you all think NASA and other space programs don't lie to keep making 50 mil a day then you're the fool.

    Just fund an expedition to cross the ice wall. Or fly a plane over the ice wall and see what is on the other side. So also then also what keeps the air on the planet? would they say the ice wall holds the air in too? either way just fly a plane over the "wall" might end up in Narnia if you believe that too.

    I'm still a flat earther...because
    The government could of paid him to say "what he saw"
    And told him he could still have a opinion but not tell the truth.
    Or if he went to the hospital because of his broken back, the government could've used technology to force him, hypnotize him or just plain made him say that.
    The government is always lying to us...just think about it.

    Flat earthers are my favourite fringe group, I don't mind alien abduction conspiracies, but I'm not a fan of holocaust deniers.
    The impending UN invasion of America makes for great conspiracy reading, also alien autopsies and illuminati.
    Ghost hunters annoy me, along with Men in Black conspiracy videos, but I don't mind Westboro.
    All in all, fringe groups are tops!
