    Flat-Earthers are back: 'It’s almost like the beginning of a new religion'
    “RUclip user TigerDan925 shocked his 26,000 followers recently by conceding a shocking point: Antarctica is a continent. It’s not, as he previously thought, an ice wall that encircles the flat disc of land and water we call earth.”

    When I stand at the water's edge and look out over the ocean, how far away is the horizon?
    “One of the funniest things about the ocean is the fact that its surface is curved. We tend to think about water forming large flat sheets, but the surface of a large body of water is not actually flat at all -- it follows the curvature of the Earth.”

    This is not a conspiracy theory. THE EARTH IS FLAT. Your fakeness to try to fool the world is not helping anymore. PEOPLE are starting to realize the truth.

    If flat-earthers really don't believe us, then they should go and find the edge. I'm not joking, if they're serious, and want to show us the truth, as they say; then they should take a picture of the edge then show it to us. Or if not, the people who know the earth is round should make the live documentary of riding a ship and continue to go forward if there is an edge or would just be back where it started, since flat-earthers don't believe in live space documentaries

    OK roundtards, the moon affects our oceans right, and is smaller than earth??? Well then don't you think that the moon would of crashed into the earth long ago if earths gravitational pull is greater than the moon... So ask yourself how does the moon affect our oceans , but yet earth is larger than the moon but has no effect on the moon.... Mic drop.....

      The gravitational pull does not necessarily mean the moon has to be directly attached to earth. The earth’s gravitational pull on the moon is strong enough to obtain it in its orbit. However, the moon is also relatively large, about 1/6th the size of the earth. So the gravitational pull is not strong enough to completely engulf the moon.

You can't detect any curvature from 120000 feet... But you seen a ship go over the horizon. Give your head a shake.

  • dfierros83
    dfierros83 11 дней назад

    So watching a ship sail over the horizon is debunking?! The flat earthers have already proven that to be incorrect. Naked vision makes it look like it disappeared, but zooming in with a high zoom camera brings the boat back over the horizon...hmmmm, can anyone prove the round Earth.. the answer is no

    if we lived on a sphere then as we ascended higher and higher in elevation the observed horizon would get lower and lower because with each incremental increase in elevation we would be able to see a little further over the curve. what we observe is that the horizon stays at eye level regardless of elevation, only possible on a plane not a sphere. undisputable fact !

    his argument of “the boat disappearing” isn’t curvature it’s purspective. Zoom in and the entire boat is back into picture, and we’ve “gone to space” yet there isn’t ONE actual picture of earth and yet the bullshit “picture paintings” from NASA of earth all look different from color to continent size. This guy is no scientist nor has he proven himself what he tries to preach.

    According to flat earthers the moon (which we can see with the naked eye) is 3000 miles above the surface of the planet. If that is true, why can't we see cities that are similar in size from 3000 miles away on a flat Earth? By that logic you should be able to see Los Angeles from Hawaii!

    So I heard this theory of the earth being flat and thought how dumb can people be right? So for the past 22 months myself and a co-worker of mine decided to run our own tests and prove the (flat earthers) wrong. I work for the department of energy at the plasma physics laboratory in Princeton NJ. So after conducting our own research and doing tests of our own. Not just relying on some guy who claimed he did a test, then taking his results as truth. We decided to film and document everything we did. And I know without a single doubt no matter what anyone else tells me or bogus claims they make. The earth as we call it, or the globe as some people like to say. Is undoubtedly a flat plane and no argument that exists can prove otherwise. I am going to receive a bit of criticism for this and we will most likely lose our jobs and be (black balled) per say, after releasing this information publicly. On May 5th 2018 we will be releasing our full findings, all the tests we completed and the results. Both on video and paper. So please be on the lookout for my video come May 5th 2018. I am sure they will try and keep it under the radar and delete it from RUclip immediately. So please copy it and share it with as many people as you possibly can. I am sure some of you will not even believe this comment. But after watching my video it will be irrefutable proof for any disbeliever. I am still in shock myself after making the discoveries we made and there is so much to it I can not understand it myself. But if you believe in God at all? You should believe that we are on God's great plane he created for us, just like the bible the Quran and every religious book tells us. Look in front of you, go outside use your own senses. And listen to what this guy in this video tells you, then go outside YOU yourself go test a theory he gives you. How about an easy one ANYBODY can do? Go to the beach and watch a boat sail over this imaginary curve, over the (curved water)! Watch this boat sail over the curved water out of sight. Then pick up binoculars and watch it return. Then through binoculars watch it disappear again over the curved water. Then look through a telescope at the same boat and watch it reappear. Repeat with zoom etc.. Now did you just watch a boat go out of sight due to perspective? Or does your binoculars and telescopes have special lenses that let you see around curves? I saw a boat that was supposed to be 300plus miles around the curved water? 300 miles below my line of sight. Can you explain how I did this? No you can't. You will quote a guy from 500 years ago who had no possible way of knowing anything he claimed. Not even a plane a balloon or camera, nothing but shadows on a stick?I couldn't believe it either I am still having a hard time processing it. But stop judging people and go see for yourself, I will pay you every dollar I have if you can show me where the curve is, or show me an aerial photo of a curved globe earth. I promise you that you can't do it, I spent the last two years trying!

      Flat earthers are not a creation of Government, but the lie certainly could be. In fact, the lie about a flat earth actually comes from Free Masons and is not a new idea. It's a rather old lie. Flat earthers are created Humans like you and me (not created by Government) who have been deceived into believing a lie. Now they promote it so strongly it's insane. That does not make them a creation of Government though! But you are right: It is certainly distracting though.
