    More propaganda or a simple mistake? *Gravity is not necessary if the Earth is a flat plain.* Yet you've included the ridiculous premise the Earth needs to be moving upwards to account for it. Send that tinfoil to NASA so they can cover cardboard boxes in it at the studio, and make you think they somehow passed the Van Allen radiation belt.

    Dude, wow. You have to be being this stupid intentionally. You talked also about gravity changing as it gets further away from the centre of a flat plain. Does gravity change at different locations on a ball earth model? No. So it wouldn't change on a flat one. There is no need to account for gravity on a flat plain, as gravity was used to explain how we don't fall off the ball Earth. Gravity is not part of the flat earth model. Gravity can be explained by density, bouancy and weight. And electro magnetism can explain the celestial movements of the stars.

    If you're going to cover this topic at least cover it accurately. Instead of saying;

     _"flat earthers think this LOLOLOL!!!!11!!1 dey r stuped m8"_

    If the flat earth was accelerating upward at 9.8m/s then shouldn't it feel the same falling off a 100 story building as it does falling 10 feet? Because if they think gravity as we know it, doesn't exist, then explain how objects on earth in a vaccum fall at 9.8 m/s/s

    Did the math. If the Earth accelerated by 9.8 meters a second for one year (starting at rest), it would end up traveling faster than the speed of light. 309 million meters per second after one year.

    It wouldn't collapse under it's own weight, as long as it was compressed enough.

    The issue isn't non-spherical worlds collapsing, the issue is that little pieces on the surface would start to sheer off and slide back to the center. As disk world wouldn't "collapse" into a ball, it would erode into one. Think of it: mountains erode, meaning the rock that makes them up starts rolling downhill, until the mountain is no more. As you walk to the edge of earth you would be climbing a "hill", it's the erosion of that hill that would cause a build-up of matter near the center of the disk, until it was no longer a disk and more roughly a sphere.

    Again: it's not the thing "crumpling in" on itself, even if it's rocky and breaks apart, it's the fact that the little bits of rock will slide down to the center that makes a ball, not "collapsing" under it's own gravity: eroding away into a sphere, as things slide down any hills. What causes erosion if there's no geological activity? Well, asteroids would strike the disk world, every so often breaking off pieces of the edge, that would slide down to the middle of the disk world.

    Ok here's a legitimate question... If the flat earth is accelerating at 9.8 m/s then how come we can drop things? Wouldn't anything that we let go of also be accelerating at 9.8 m/s and just float there? like if you drop a ball out of a moving plain it doesn't go straight down, it moves diagonally downward.
