    Flat-Earthers are back: 'It’s almost like the beginning of a new religion'
    “YouTube 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.”

    you should be pretty sure that you will not burn in hell, prepared for demons and false prophets. you spend yur time discuting the truth, you just want it is like you say, but do not be so sure, flat earth prooves God, and an eternal life, a globe does not promise nothing exept sin, and slavery, disobeying God wich gave you life. you mind controlled child, they make you talk what they want. globe believers are all stupid people, mind controlled, they only deny deny and deny, the truth. atheists do not want some one higher than them, to controll them, even if He is God wich gave them life, ...while they do not know that they are being controlled by evil, and are paying with their life in hell, Bible calls those people stupids. because one who deny the truth is stupid. because they are closed minded, they do not want something else comes from outside, they want to think in their own way, what they create inside their mind, they blind themselfes with what they think. they invent a stupid theory and they believe it. so the Bible is right by calling them stupids. because one who acts like this, is in fact a stupid. life was not created by a big bang. noo!!!! nor the oceans can not be created by explosions, noo! ...what about feelings? created by a big bang?!!! do not be fooled, you will regret for what you have done, because what you plant in this earth, you will harvest in Heaven. i hope God opens your mind, because denying everything, means that you know nothing.

      If that's the case, you're in the extreme minority here, buddy. Essentially, you're calling out the majority population "brain-dead idiots". I understand and it's fine to be skeptical, but to reject science and factual evidence is the same concept as arguing with a brick wall. In this case, whether you actually have a brain is the real question, instead of being a stubborn donkey.

      Hm, well, you don't seem very confidence as you've mentioned "I'm pretty sure ...",yet you haven't backed up anything you've said. Also, you're stating " travelling close to the speed of light passing the Earth" meaning you're not from Earth(I'm assuming English isn't your first language)? I'm assuming you meant if you were to travel in a straight line, the earth would measured out to be flat, correct?

      Here evidence to debate against. Let's take the Gold en Gate Bridge for example. "Because of the curvature of the Earth, the towers are a little wider apart at the top than at the bottom ", calculating the CURVATURE of the earth when making the bridge.
      Before you accuse someone of "spreading lies", you better back up what you say

    C. LANDIS 10 дней назад

    Well wait a second... I am not here to argue one side or the other but if in this video, the guy's very first "Reason" is "That the ships haul begins to sink/disappear first and then the rest of the boat. This is because of the curvature of the earth"


    All that occurs with the "boat disappearing" is due to what's known as the Vanishing Point Effect, which is a matter of perspective.
    This would happen whether the earth was flat or a ball!

    There are plenty of videos already (and you can do it easily on your own with just the most basic Nikon or Canon DSLR camera) showing how when the ship seems to have completely disappeared, zooming in looking through a camera will bring it back into focus, the entire boat.


    • Go away Google

      I figured it was obvious that when using words like "disappear" while discussing the topic of perspective, that it would be obvious I was referring to the perception of disappearance, not literal vanishing. Of course I do not literally mean that a ship will actually disappear if it moves a certain distance away from an arbitrary observer, only that it will appear to for that particular arbitrary observer. Apologies if I wasn't communicating this as well as I thought, I'll try to be as transparent as possible here.

      Let me make this as clear as I possibly can.
      Perspective causes something's size to appear to shrink the further away it is from you. This alone would not cause an object's bottom to appear to disappear before its top. The bottom half of that object doesn't shrink any more than its top will, as they're the same distance away from the observer, and thus will experience the same level of shrinkage to their eyes.

      *Just like, a person standing in the desert a foot away from a puddle, sees and identifies it as a puddle. But a 2nd person 100 yards away from the first, from his perspective will see a large pool with clear water. They both are looking at the same thing, that thing stays constant. Its the perspective of the second person that alters the interpretation of the same information coming into him that creates the illusion of what in this case is called a mirage.*

      The 2nd person isn't actually seeing that puddle, because that is also not how mirages work. A mirage can be seen on any surface hot enough to refract light towards your eyes before hitting the ground, whether there is water or not. it is not an appearance distortion of the puddle caused by distance or perspective. It's a completely different phenomenon, so I'm not sure how it's relevant. Or are you implying that distortions like mirages are what cause ships to appear to sink bottom first?

    • C. LANDIS
      C. LANDIS 7 дней назад

      Ok but what you just said is in itself is invalid argument as its based off a contradictory point your trying to state.

      " my main point, which is that perspective will not cause objects to disappear bottom first."

      --- RIGHT --- BECAUSE "Perspective" is defined as how a individual "interprets something/information" that they are receiving.
      So of course the perspective (perception) doesn't "CAUSE OBJECTS TO DISAPPEAR" .... perspective doesn't "CAUSE" anything or have any outward effect.

      Which is actually why in fact, YOUR argument of it will "not cause the bottom half of a ship to disappear before the top" doesn't make sense because 'Perspective" is only about what APPEARS to be happening. despite breaking the rules of reality and what IS ACTUALLY occurring.
      " Because perspective applies equally to the entire object" - This literally contradicts itself. What rule of law does this follow? It doesn't;....

      Just like, a person standing in the desert a foot away from a puddle, sees and identifies it as a puddle. But a 2nd person 100 yards away from the first, from his perspective will see a large pool with clear water. They both are looking at the same thing, that thing stays constant. Its the perspective of the second person that alters the interpretation of the same information coming into him that creates the illusion of what in this case is called a mirage.

      Same concept.

    • Go away Google
      Go away Google 7 дней назад

      C. LANDIS I think you missed my main point, which is that perspective will not cause objects to disappear bottom first.
      If a ship or other object reaches an observer's vanishing point, the entire object as a whole will get smaller and smaller until it's invisible. Because perspective applies equally to the entire object, it will not cause the bottom half of a ship to disappear before the top, since they are the same distance away from the observer, and will be affected by perspective equally.
      Therefore, an object reaching the vanishing point will not appear to "sink" as large ships on the real horizon do.

    • C. LANDIS
      C. LANDIS 7 дней назад

      No it did not come off that way at all. I then replied, trying to say that what you actually stated in your reply is in fact the same thing I had said just worded in a grammatically different way.

      Soo... You say "The "vanishing point" is simply the point at which the object is too small to see."

      But how is that any different than me saying

      "All that occurs with the "boat disappearing" is due to what's known as the Vanishing Point Effect, which is a matter of perspective."

      Are you not saying that when boat is too far to see(disappears from a persons visual perspective), at that point - it is referred to the "vanishing point"?

      Am I not stating that 'when it >LOOKS AS IF<(PERCEPTION) the boat has disappeared
      It actually has not. It has only moved so far away that it "is to small to see" ... called "The Vanishing Point"

      "From the perspective of the viewer, it is seemingly "disappearing or going over the curve" - AKA Vanishing.... When it is actually not..

      ----- Are we not saying the exact same thing? And that is what I was trying to ask you with my response.

      C. LANDIS what do you mean? I tried reading and understanding your post, but most of it was based on a misunderstanding about how perspective works. So in my reply I tried to explain what you got wrong. If my response came off as confrontational or close minded know that I didn't intend it to.

      texwendellsson Deflection from the above information with incredulous requests does not negate anything stated; the Earth is spherical based on two celestial poles alone.

    "Flat earthers don't believe in science" FALSE

    Actually, flat earthers are using math and science to prove that it doesn't add up. Such as the shadows from the two towers showing a sphere pattern because light emitted from a spheroid would be spherical, therefore at the right distance from earth, a smaller closer sun would show the same shadowing on a flat plane. That you can test for free at home if you own a bright flashloght, a pingpong ball and something that stands up on a table, you're right it proves nothing right off, except that it could be closer and smaller.

    The illusion is not that MATH AND SCIENCE ARE LIES, though they very well may be a part of the structure of the illusionists trap, which could be simply for maintaining the experience of earth and not some sadistic, "we're going to hell" conspiracy. If everyone knows it's a game they will stop playing, and the dark one's run out of business to collect dark energies generated by foul emotion. Which if you watch carefully, is generated by the many many things seemingly placed there by controlling entities to do just that generating f dark energies.

      Clay Akin Your rhetoric does not negate the methodology presented, data from those experiments proving a spherical Earth, or the existence of two celestial poles, each visible by anyone in their respective hemisphere. It would seem your argument is based solely on being wedded to the fallacious flat earth theory, as the idea of a spherical Earth (i.e reality) threatens you in an emotional or spiritual way.

      I'm not just some guy who is making a claim like,

      "I went to the moon, I walked in the dust after flying in an encased foil capsule through superheated atmosphere into long fields of radiation with many recording instruments. I collected samples chemically equivelant to bleached desert sandstone and petrified wood, and I lost all the data that shows I actually went."

      The invention of the camera and computer has doomed all science to trust unless you possess yourself a rocket ship.

      I am human, you are human, we can touch ourselves, interact with the things and people around us and travel this planet all day, experiencing what it has to offer. ANYTHING, beyond that has to be trusted by those who possess the Authority and financial capabilities to actually go and find out. Your graphs, math and images were produced by someone else, you did none of the work to invoke these so called and (You're right)accepted informations. Therefore in this argument they are but stories, just like what I say here, generated by a thinking mind that has been fooled into this existence.

      Current thoughts, Plane: Plane of existence, Planet... Plane-t... Planette, smaller plane, but who what when why how?!

      Clay Akin The links provided are methods to accurately measure the distance to the sun and the circumference; it provides accepted numbers as well, but it appears you either didn't open the links or ignored their main points.
      As for your deflected incredulity, a "rainbow" requires rain by definition; else it is a spectrum. You can reproduce a spectrum with a hose with a spray nozzle and a light source, regardless of your location (i.e. inside or out).
      If the above mathematical methodology or optical demonstration is beyond your scope, the easiest proof of a spherical Earth is the existence of two celestial poles. At no point in time should individuals on a flat earth facing in opposite directions (e.g from Australia, South America, Africa) be able to visualize the same line of convergence that is the Southern celestial pole.

    • Clay Akin
      Clay Akin 10 дней назад

      OK, I see math, based on what we are told are distances in space, this can't be proven, at all. And the shadows on the earth are going to look the same, whether the sun is close and small, or large and far. To your perspective, light would come off it the same, and so wold shadows.

      Look up rainbows, read about them, they cannot exist inside a room with no mirrors or glass. have you ever wondered why the layers of color are dead even and separate themselves through the droplets of water? Science tells you that the rainbow is formed due to the prism effect, making each water droplet a tiny prism... but this makes no sense, because a single prism turns white light into the entire rainbow. So if every droplet were generating every color, you would get a mess of all colors coming from every single point in the water spray. You would not see a nice ring of evenly separated color. Try it, get your flashlight and shine away in a dark closet, spray the hell out of some water and you will only get tiny fragments of color between the drops which do on their own produce a prism effect, but you will not see rings of rainbow light. It requires a backdrop mirror/glass to produce a ring of reflected light. Instead, the water droplets simply refract the colored lights that are reflecting off of something much larger than we know.

      Can you elaborate on how people on a flat earth in varying locations (e.g. Australia, South America, and Africa) are all able to face in the direction opposite North and see the same line of convergence that is the Southern celestial pole and stars that appear to rotate clockwise around that point (approximately Sigma Octantis), as opposed to counter-clockwise around the Northern celestial pole?

    use a telescope or zoom lense= debunk the whole ship over the horizon argument.

    the sun setting.. easy.. perspective. look it up.

    research captain cook, admiral Byrd, and other Antarctica explorers.

    don't confuse flat earth society with the flat earth research society. the former is a shill, the latter=science.

    oh n BTW, nasa admits no photo of earth exists. all cgi. yep. right there on the Internet. have a look.

    I've skydived, horizon don't move.

    n guess what.. I'm not even a flat earther.. I just think for myself and question things. but hey.. you'll ridicule me anyway.. even though I've done nothing but point out a few of the many holes in round earth theory.

      Skeptical Dreamer I'm aware of the footage of Chicago from Lake Michigan, and it is spectacular, but the skyline is also distorted and half obscured by the horizon. I want to see footage of someone zooming in on that skyline, or a similar one, and bringing the entire thing into view.
      And most of the videos I've seen that claim to demonstrate ships coming back into view actually only demonstrate boats on the horizon which are too small to see becoming big enough to see due to Magnification, never the bottom halves of ships beyond the horizon coming back into view over it. But perhaps I'm just looking in the wrong places.

      Forgive my skepticism, but is there any evidence of this ice wall beyond word of mouth and speculation? The titles of these documents for instance? Although a photo or video of any kind of this ice wall would be best.

      The problem is that I've heard many of these "facts" before, and the vast majority of them don't hold up under scrutiny. I worry that your search for "truth" is leading you to believing false claims

    • Skeptical Dreamer
      Skeptical Dreamer 12 дней назад

      +Go away Google I've tried it. it works.

      plenty of footage of exactly that online. YouTube has a few of Chicago being viewed across lake michigan. look it up.

      the sailors I mention all ventured south to Antarctica. once there they were met by a wall of ice hundreds of feet in height, and it stretched as far as the eye could see, both east, and west. when sailing along its edge no inlet could be found. the earlier recirds (captain cook) logged a journey of approximately 60,000miles along the edge. more modern explorers (admiral byrd) claim to have climbed up the ice wall, and found a gigantic piece of land, not all covered by ice; this land held many minerals in abundance. in particular admiral byrd mentions enough coal not under ice to fuel the world for many years. look up operation high jump if you like conspiracy theories, admiral byrd is involved. proof exists(government documents).

      there's a whole lot online. look it up yourself. I'm simply stating what I know to be true, and commenting on what others have claimed to be true; and have provided evidence to back their claims.

      I'm not here to provide answers. I'm searching for my own.

      Have you ever actually tried it? It doesn't actually work. If it does, show me any footage of someone zooming in on a city skyline half obscured by the horizon, like the CN Tower from Niagra on the Lake for example, and bringing the entire skyline back into view. Or the sun for that matter.

      If the sun set because of perspective, then it would get smaller as it set. It doesn't. and a pinhole camera or a video camera with a solar filter can prove this.

      What about them exactly?

      What peer reviewed science has the "flat earth research society" provided? What evidence do they have?

      No they don't, this is an outright lie. NASA claims at the very least that the 1972 Blue Marble and the hundreds of photos from the DSCOVR EPIC are real pictures of the earth. No quote similar to "there are no real photos of the earth from space" from NASA exists, which you'd know if you tried fact checking this claim before making it.

      Nor would we expect it to on a planet as large as ours. Not by a discernible degree with the naked eye.

      These aren't really holes so much as misinformation and the occasional outright lie propagated by flat earthers. Which can really only be believed

      It's less to do with the religion and more to do with the conspiracy theory. Flat earthers often use religion to support the theory, but when it comes down to it they only question what the authorities tell them, not what youtubers, holy books, or alternative websites tell them.

We know NASA fakes images, The Chicago skyline being visible from Michigan City, How the Sun shrinks when it sets (time lapse photography shows this) Etc Etc Etc.....And we KNOW the Core segment pictures are made-up, so why not the Globe too.....I've still yet to see a genuine picture of a spinning Earth from space yet they claim to have close ups of Pluto, yet more NASA fakery.....

      Every YouTube video I've seen has shown a boat enlarging as a unit indicating the object was not discernible (too small to see), not "rising" after "setting" over the horizon.
      As for the Bedford level experiment, atmospheric refraction was not taken into account and when repeated (by John Hampden and Alfred Rusell Wallace) revealed a spherical Earth, so I'm not sure if you want to use that as an example supporting the flat earth theory. Interestingly though, the repetition was a bet, and after Hampden lost the bet, Wallace was obliged to return the money to Hampden, after which Hampden took Wallace to court and then began death threats after the case was thrown out.

      In any event, the above information, at best, argues against the size of the planet, not necessarily its shape.

      How much "curve" would you expect to see on a spherical object approximately 25000 mile in circumference with a distance of about 5 miles?
      And please provide a source/video/link to support your claim that a boat that has "set" over the horizon can be brought "back in view" with any type of zoom, in which the boat "rises" over the horizon as one would expect, and does not enlarge as an entire unit, as would be seen by an object that was too small to see and not necessarily over the horizon.

      Under certain atmospheric conditions, through a long-understood and well-documented optical phenomenon called *atmospheric refraction* , the light waves near the surface *can* actually be bent (rather than the usual arrow-straightness we are familiar with). This can allow an object which has indeed passed below the curve of the earth (at the horizon) to sometimes be seen for longer than usual distances; and thus with binoculars or a telescope said object can *seem* to be brought back into view for *some* further miles than usual, even though it *has* definitely passed below the curvature.

      But there is a limit to such bending (refraction) of the light waves, and eventually - no matter how much *stronger* a telescope you may try - the object (if it is still moving away from you) absolutely *DOES* pass out of sight below the horizon because of the curvature of the planet.

      This tired old claim is so silly and so easily debunked, it is amazing to me that intellectually-lazy people sometimes *STILL* trot it out as if there is a shred of truth to it! You should really make a conscious effort *NOT* to be a willing accomplice in passing along well-known *lies* as if they were true.
