A Response to a Goof-Ball Critic of the Flat Earth
Sometimes we come across a goof-ball critic of the flat earth. Now, I’m not talking about people who are honest critics, I’m talking about a real goof-ball. There was one reader who said – in reference to my post Click Here – a real stupid comment. He said words to the effect, “…flat earth believers are idiots. Don’t you know that is a CGI of the earth?” This was in reference to the picture I had on my post where the flat earth is on the left and some preacher on the right.
Of course I know that it’s a CGI (or, more accurately, an artist’s rendition of the flat earth that was scanned in)! All you readers know this. But this reader had to make a stupid comment as if he was discovering something new. Everyone one that has a flat earth website or makes flat earth videos uses a drawing of some sort of the flat earth. We all know the reason and you do, too, but apparently there are some critics are thinking that flat earth believers are using real photos of the flat earth. Well, we know that it’s a CGI as there is no photo that exists of the flat earth!
This guy’s remark is so stupid that it’s funny! (Thanks for the good laugh!) Assuming this guy is real in his remark and for the few that think the same, let me make a simple comment – how do you get outside the firmament (dome) to take a photo? How do you get above the firmament to get high enough to take a picture or video of the surface? How do you get to the side of the earth to get a profile of it? The simple reason is – you can’t. That is why CGI pictures are used – to give an idea to the readers.
For those who have bought an e-book of some kind, you often see a picture of it in “hard cover,” for example. Do you expect to get a physical hard cover of it? No. This is just done to engage the senses of the buyer – that is all. The same with images of the flat earth.
Maybe the military got a picture of a small part of the earth looking inwards to the Antarctic that would show some kind of curvature but this is only a guess. In any regards no flat earth image is possible.
You can be sure that the government, the military, will not want to show you anything that indicates a flat earth. After all, if they did, their goes the belief that we evolved on our own without God.
Could Psalms 115.16 be telling us that we shall never travel in ‘space?’ I think so. The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’S (Yahweh’s); but the earth he has given to the children of men. Psalms 115.16 KJV
Anyhow, I’m glad for the goof-ball remark, as this is something that you might encounter yourself so you know what to expect. And, by this comment, it allowed me to right another article.
By the way, here is another CGI image of the flat earth. Enjoy 😉
