Globe Earther Makes Stupid Statements
I go on a forum where questions and answers are given on many topics and of late, I’ve been answering questions on the flat earth. Here is what he said:
“If there are they (flat earthers) must be terribly confused. Even living AT the Equator violates what some flat earthers appear to believe.
“There is no central belief system other than that Earth is not spherical.
While flat earthers have presumably hundreds of reasons to believe the Earth is flat, not one of which is meaningful, science has thousands to prove Earth is spherical.”
Let’s go over this.
It’s not confusing for flat earthers to live at the equator, why would it?
Just imagine a CD disk, where the mid-way point is between the centre and edge. Now, if you live in Quito, Ecuador, for example, you can say that you live a couple of miles south of the equator. In other words, you use the same names that others call it. If you were to give an address, you say what the name is, so others know how to find you. It doesn’t matter if the person you are talking to believes in the globe or flat earth. If your address is Globe Earth 1125, Houston, Texas, you’d use that. That doesn’t make the earth round nor do you have to believe it just because your street is called ‘Globe Earth.’
Next Statement – “That there is no central belief system (among flat earthers) that the Earth is not spherical”. This is a case – very typical – of a critic not doing his/her research. Who said that this is the only belief that we all agree on? He obviously hasn’t been to any good flat earth website or seen the many videos that have been made. The fact is, there are many things that we flat earthers agree on, such as:
the Earth is stationary
the Sun and Moon go around the Earth (round being over the surface and returning again)
that water seeks its own level (impossible to be on a ball)
that the edge is in the Antarctic region
that if you shoot something up in the air it comes directly down (thus proving that the ground did not move)
that we can see beyond the distance we should be able to see if we live on a globe (by using the math formula globers give us, based on the circumference of the Earth, which is: 8 inches x the distant squared
that there is firmament (dome) that keeps our atmosphere in
plus many more
Final Statement – “While flat earthers have presumably hundreds of reasons to believe the Earth is flat, not one of which is meaningful, science has thousands to prove Earth is spherical.” Yes, we have hundreds of reason why the Earth is flat, but where is his ‘thousands’ of facts?! And, when he said our “reasons are not meaningful”, how can anyone say this as we are talking about physics.
So, what are our reasons that are not meaningful? Such as: water seeks its own level. You can have water on a ball and you can’t have anything standing up when it’s spinning at 1,000 mph, just giving one speed of our so-called movement. This is not just a reason but scientific facts. How does that statement go: “Please don’t confuse me with the facts.”
Critics should at least take the time to read what we have, watch the videos we have. If they can’t do this, they are not qualified to make any comments at all.
Thousands I say, thousands.
