Are Flat Earthers the dumbest conspiracy theorists of all time?
The earth's shadow cast upon the Moon is round. Ships sailing off into the ocean slowly sink below the horizon, rather than suddenly drop off of the Earth. Jews did 9/11.
This is what's so baffling about the theory. Inevitably if you cite anything disproving it, then the existence of those facts is called into question...which is fine. Interesting, even. Unless I've personally flown around the earth then I can't truly know it's round.
But, if that's the line of reasoning, why pick something as mundane as the shape of the earth to call into question? Why not something, anything, more interesting?
you. pick up the social cues, you're failing basic human interactions mr.robot.
op is bait, you're just worse bait, and this is worst bait.
frankly it's mostly bordem and to shed a view on people that say Intellgent Design exsists, because it's not supporting stuff like intel des, but it's still mocking it.
it's satire, and it's always been sitre, and if you look into it, they call it satire. that's what satire is. so to think satire is dumb, is to confuse it with camp, but let me also say, it's intellgent, becvause it seems dumb, because it's not that dumb, no one in it is dumb, any one that actually belives in it, is like a satanist that belives int he devil.
these contradictions is like the subtley of sarcasim but done in a way to mock social values, thus it's SATIRE.
THIS ENTIRE THREAD
Pictures of round objects appear flat to retards.
Nasa has been going into space at the edge of the earth and all the worlds goverments don't want us to know that it is that easy to get into space so they signed a treaty with the martians during the space race in russia there is a video of it on the internet, they want to keep us in the dark till our technology is advanced enough to fight back because people like trump would start
It's like Donald Duck fan club (they love quotes of donald duck and mix it into real world literature), the Friday 13th club (they walk inside with umbrellas under ladders on friday 13th and smash mirrors yada yada yada) Crop Circle Makers (they don't pretend it's aliens, only the news paper people do) or any other group like that.
They're more like the people that give out Darwin awards then Win them.
Ya'lls stupidity is showin'
They're trolls. It's bait.
I'll post links you didn't
the oldest article they have saying it's about people taking the bible literally, not about flat
>DISCLAIMER: This article is not advocating flat-earth theory, nor is it
attempting to show that most or even many creationists believe in a flat
Earth. It simply illustrates that there are still real people who interpret the
Bible so literally that they think Earth is flat. The TalkOrigins Archive does
not support or endorse the views of the International Flat Earth Society.
Right there with scientologists.
No, seriously. The earth is round, gravity exists, and if you believe otherwise you a dipshit who can't think about thinks on a basic logical level.
pic somewhat related you autistic flat-earthers.
THEY'RE ANTI-RELIGIOUS-NUTS, THEY'RE NOT SCIENTOLOGISTS THEY'RE ANTI-CREATIONISTS MOCKING INTELLIGENT DESIGN.
THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOU THINK IT IS, IS WHAT THEY ARE. YOU'RE MAKING GROSS ASSUMPTIONS BASED ON NOTHING YOU'RE ASS DUMB AS A FUCKING XENU WORSHIPER!
Oh no. Someone wants to take down institutions that profit off guilting people with morals into donating habitually, and who then make palatial buildings dedicated to said religion.
This is a crime against humanity, truly, God weeps. It's not like the good Jesus himself abhorred the wealthy, and would applaud the usurping of the rich who take instead of give.
Fuckin flat earthers, who else could be so retarded?
The British parliament?
>Easier to convince people God doesn't exist if the Earth is round and the universe is infinite. If the Earth is flat, then someone probably created it.
Now you're just adding extra idiotic theories on top of it
OP... if you actually knew science then you would know that a flat earth is quite plausible and the fact is that what we see may not be the real earth. go be dumb somewhere else
is this just an automated thread, that isn't actually filled with real people???
literally no one is here but me ...
what is this, i posted the website and articles, you guys are not actually talking about anything, and i think this is just automated troll spam... from /b/ oddly enough... simulating a real thread...
that's a dead link... what the fuck....
this is a thread filled with bots pretending to be people....
ANYONE ELSE ON /b/ CAN YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THIS SHIT!ANYONE ELSE ON /b/ CAN YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THIS SHIT!ANYONE ELSE ON /b/ CAN YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THIS SHIT!ANYONE ELSE ON /b/ CAN YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THIS SHIT!ANYONE ELSE ON /b/ CAN YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THIS SHIT!ANYONE ELSE ON /b/ CAN YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THIS SHIT!
Well, the Sun is down here in Wisconsin, America.
My friend in Japan says the Sun is currently up, and it's almost 2PM there.
If the world was flat, the Sun would be under everything.
It'd be plausible if global trade didn't constantly and consistently circumnavigate the globe, and we didn't have planes that can reach so high you can see the curvature of the earth, not to mention space travel.
Oh I forgot, nasa is in on...the conspiracy to make millions off of globe sales and...right the christianity thing, round earth doesn't contradict the bible, only an infinite universe would, and only in implications that God took 5 days to make earth, and 1 for everything else, which implies an earth-centric tiny universe.
There's literally 0 need to falsify the shape of the earth.
Only a complete moron would buy into this. Flat earth is retarded too.
that feel when flat earthers are just government agents trying to discredit all conspiracy theories
buddy, the world is flat is satire. it's been around for a few decades now. no one believes it. any 'information' out there is set up as mis-information to fuck with dumb shits.
it's a troll. okay.
Yes and no, i mean it's help keeping the secrets safe, but not by discrediting it. it's just keeping the idiots entertained, the intelligent people doing it, is what they do in the spare time. the conspiracy is the main work. this stuff is just for fun.
you get good enough making lies, you get bored. what can i tell you.
but let me say, the origin of flat worlders is of significance. early 90's is when it all changed, with digital communications.
i only say this as a member of http://principiadiscordia.com/ that a lot of discodianists, are Earth is Flatters.
It's a prank.
it's a joke.
it's a troll.
it's SERIOUS BIZURNIUSSS
but it's a serious prank, bro.
anyone that thinks it's real is a) an idiot b) to dumb to understand it c) never heard of a joke
like ffs, you're the dumbest shits, to all in this thread.
you probably think people that love raptor jesus or speggit god are fucking right there like scientologists. that we ACTUALLY THINK IT'S REAL.
just because someone says something, no matter how convincing, they could lie.
do you not understand lies.
I am a 12 year old girl. you must all beleive that too. I think the world is... no i KNOW the world is flat.
YOU CAN'T DISPROVE I DON'T BELIEVE IT! because you lack free will. you're the examples Earth is Flat members like to point out. arrogance, ignorances, and immaturity.
>Search flat earth clouds on google
>Watch the first video that pops up
>The very first texts says, "The Sun is the size of the Moon, and 3,000 miles above us".
Yeahhhhh.. I don't belong here. Bye.
either you're trolling or check out http://www.principiadiscordia.com/book/1.php
and see how serious people take this. they have holidays and everything. it's literally a cult
>INB4 SCIENTOLOGY RAID
it's ALSO a prank.
Flat Earth Society of Canada was established on 8 November 1970 by philosopher Leo Ferrari, writer Raymond Fraser and poet Alden Nowlan; and was active until 1984. Calling themselves planoterrestrialists, their aims were quite different from other flat earth societies. With obvious humorous overtones, they claimed a prevailing problem of the new technological age was the willingness of people to accept theories "on blind faith and to reject the evidence of their own senses.
>It's always been a satire.
>no one has ever believed it.
>it's an inside joke, you're all on the outside.
First there's fucking Y2k then there's fucking 2012 then nibiru and then there were fucking other things, too many to remember.
NOW THERE'S FUCKING FLAT EARTH AND THEN PROBABLY FLAT MOON. OH, NOW NIBIRU IS FLAT TOO!?
NEXT WE'LL ALL BELIEVE OUR DICKS ARE FLAT AND VAGINAS ARE ACTUALLY PERFECTLY CIRCLED SPHERES.
dumbass nigger needs to go back to africa where he belongs
let me put it a way you might understand. people MIGHT believe it, but they're not part of Flat Earth Societies... which ever.
just like some people believe in the devil, but they are not Satanists in the church of satan.
It's satire, mocking religion. that one can believe in god, you can believe in the devil or flat earth, or discordianism. Nothing is real, anything is permitted.
They're not templars, they're assassins. They might look like a priest, but they do not believe in god.
do you get what I mean?
It's like thinking I actually believe in the God-Emperor because I play Space MArines in warhammer 40k Or actually think people on TV are living out real lives?
It's not even funny.
There are a lot of people who genuinely believe the Earth is flat and the UN (controlled by Jews and created soley to funnel white wealth to nigs) is trying to deceive us. My roommates for example.
y2k was real, they patched millions of computers and updated a lot of technology to fight it. it was a real cause for concern, just not a be melt down one. but it is good for people to be prepared.
2012, some shit went down, just not literal. IKR?
it's... wait... you're trolling too... you know the truth...
Eratosthenes got it right 2,350 years ago faggot
because no one is actually talking about any place. they're just cranking on like old grampas at "those fellas"
>Claims there's no evidence the earth is round
>Dismisses all evidence presented as being fabricated
>Wouldn't believe the earth is round unless they saw it with their own eyes
>Constantly claims that any and all people who believe this are being brain washed by who the fuck knows
>Believes in god
Just make a trip around earth going along the equator
Im sure it will be a nice experience
You may even turn out to be a decent human being when you have finished your adventure
oh because Chris columbus thought the earth was round. with the approval of the queen the earth was round, and one of the first major publicity for the earth not being flat in public talks.
it was known before then, but he made it quite a bg topic because the queen supported the view, privately.
same group, and you posted a dead link.
got any fresher pasta?
because besides ME, you're the first one to point out ANY group.
>About 200 years ago photography was invented
>Not a SINGLE picture of the Earth edge has been documented yet
>Oh! They don't want us to know!!
Something literally on a global scale as this could not possibly be covered, at all!
If it was flat, everyone would have already known. You can't hide that kind of thing if it were true.
Ive seen the edge of the earth with my own eyes, its right there at niagra falls.
Its like 1000miles away from it, but niagra falls is just like the first step onto the edge of our world.
the flat earth societies are like 60 years old, not 200...
n 1956, Samuel Shenton, a songwriter by trade, created the International Flat Earth Society as a successor to the Universal Zetetic Society and ran it as "organizing secretary"
it mocks religion
GET THE FUCK BACK TO REDIT
discover, who said discover?
they didn't revive it. The people that revered the Greeks you say invented the IDEA OF, because they didn't DISCOVER it either.
so either you're an idiot, or YOU'RE A BIGGER IDIOT
you wanna make 2 word sentences, and pick fights with no knowledge of what you mean, don't get mad if I HAVE NO IDEA WHICH SIDE OF YOUR ASS YOU'RE SHITTING OUT OF DICKHOLE
Yeah... you know I can't stay mad at you...
Because there totally wasn't fucking ancient South American people who were sticking sticks in the ground and measuring the shadows to prove the same things the Greeks did using math as-well. How fucking daft are you? is this out of some glorification of the people who "revived the discovered idea of the concept of a round earth" or whatever bullshit? What's even your point in this argument if you're just gonna attempt to over-weigh they're ""discoveries"" over the hundreds of people who did it and widely believed it before. You act like astronomy in general just popped out of the ground because of them and woke up the world like they're fucking magicians.
Measuring stars does not prove the earth is round. the moon only faces earth one way. if it rotated i could say that was proof to discredit it.
but what you're missing is pre-neolithic people sailing the oceans, not thinking or caring about the world being flat.
it was an idea mostly held by mediterranean people. Hence why the queens endorcment for Chirs to sail off the edge of the earth, or not, was a big turning point, PR wise for earth being round.
it was not a view held world wide, like holocaust deniers, we didn't ahve a global village then, BITCH.
so the people that believed the greeks, we're mostly the same people that DIDN'T
THE NIGGERS THAT MADE THE FLAT MAPS
In 1956, Samuel Shenton, a songwriter by trade, created the International Flat Earth Society as a successor to the Universal Zetetic Society and ran it as "organizing secretary" from his home in Dover, England. Given Shenton's interest in alternative science and technology, the emphasis on religious arguments was less than in the predecessor society.
When satellite images showed Earth as a sphere, Shenton remarked: "It's easy to see how a photograph like that could fool the untrained eye".
also said, tounge in cheek by the head of the flat earthers.
wasn't until we had pictures from space, hence why flat earthers also discredit the moon landings, and believe in god.
to discredit religious nuts.
you're here trying to recruit idiots for your troll..
not on my watch.
what about mars, venus other moon pictures, globes... no one seriously believes this. it's a troll against religions saying god is real.
the crux is, if you say the earth is flat, you have to also say god is real.
they can't argue both points is the trick.
all the same arguments work both ways.
So because a select population of uneducated Europeans didn't know the earth is round therefor nobody did and it wasn't proven until those people understood it. A very Euro-centric view of history and science in general. Here's your proof, it was the first proof, not your's, now fuck off.
How can you believe the "story" you were provided about 9/11 there's just so much stupid shit that doesn't make a shred of sense. Tower 7 fell wasn't hit or on fire, heat hot enough to melt steel but somehow 11/16 Saudi id's found in rubble in almost perfect condition. How is any of this shit so blatantly over looked. I bet you think mermaids are real
Cause it was totally unreasonable to think that a building next to two collapsing skyscrapers wouldn't suffer any damage. You people are un-please-able, first there's not enough collateral damage and it's a "controlled demolition" but now there's too much according to whoever the fuck you are.
https://youtu.be/njCDZWTI-xg It's a live video of a satellite. It's obviously moving in a straight line, continually. Either Earth is an infinite plane(lol), that live video is a photoshop (completely possible) or Earth is a sphere.
We are not "conspiracy theorist", this implies that are conclusions are not valid, we make very simple logical points that cannot be refuted. For example:
1) You believe that there are people 7900 miles below you standing upside down (reductio ad absurdum)
2) You believe that despite traveling 1000+ mph that you feel nothing (reductio ad absurdum)
3) You have never seen the horizon curve, it is always flat (self evident)
4) You have never seen mountains, buildings or clouds tilt away at the horizon. And they would if the earth was curved (self evident)
Your arguments for a ball earth are based on NASA and freemason lies, not on empirical observation.
You do know that modern astronomy claims that the demarcation of light and dark on the moon is made by it's position relative to the sun and not the earth's shadow right? So literally you'd never have a new moon at night (which has been observed many times)
Also, ships appear to sink at the horizon because of the law of perspective, not because they are going over a curve. Notice how said ships never tilt away at the horizon, like they should.
Jews literally did 9/11, mocking this simple truth is very ironic
Well 1, there really isn't a reliable picture of the whole earth, just what NASA basically says
2nd, the token presence in space
and 3rd, that Obama and others have pretty much shut down the space program because it's not effectively presenting the cover story
Flat earth theory is extolled by those who at the highest level know its untruth.
The only people who truly believe it are the definition of tools.
SERIOUSLY KILL YOUR FUCKING SELVES YOU TWATS
HURR DURR ONLY BECAUSE YOU'VE BEEN TOLD WHAT TO BELIEVE HURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
I have no will for it to go either way
it is what it is
and the more we discover things like mobile devices and microtechnology the harder it is for the status quo to continue perpetrating the deception
>you'd never have a new moon at night (which has been observed many times)
>observing a negative
>are you even trying
Well, either you are a fucking idiotic Christian or a well hidden troll. If you want irreffutable proof that the Earth is a sphere, we'll need a stupid solution: Go in a plane, tie a 8000 miles long rope between any high building and a plane and circle around the equator back to the same building you started. Then do the same thing but go to North Pole and then South Pole and finally back to starting point.
I'm laughing at these responses, because like I said in post, none of you can refute them. It's like you are trying to prove my point. Make a valid argument against any of the 4 arguments presented. I dare you
Science thought insects came from meat or mud
science thought the heart was the center of the body
and science right now is perpetrating the global warming hoax to bring about socialist wealth redistribution
What's there to explain? It doesn't exist, the horizon is always flat. Don't believe me, go to a beach and put a ruler close to your eye and level it to the horizon. Your eyes automatically "curve" the peripheries slightly, but the ruler snaps it into place
>beyond parody stupidity
>scared it's real
>1) You believe that there are people 7900 miles below you standing upside down (reductio ad absurdum)
yes, because that's how gravity works, everything being pulled toward the center of the planet
>2) You believe that despite traveling 1000+ mph that you feel nothing (reductio ad absurdum)
We are used to it. If the earth suddenly halted, we'd know
>3) You have never seen the horizon curve, it is always flat (self evident)
There's countless evidence of the horizon curving
>4) You have never seen mountains, buildings or clouds tilt away at the horizon. And they would if the earth was curved (self evident)
because we're too small to see it, if you go up high enough you can see the curve
2. have you ever ridden in a car before, you retard?
3. I have seen it. You've never sailed before, have you.
4. I don't even understand what your retarded ass is trying to say here.
why can i sail from california to china if the earth is flat, would i not fall off rather than magically appear on the other side of the coin that is earth? dont give me that subspace bullshit that happens in mario 2
And why the fuck would anyone do something so pointless. Also answer the question why can't I ask for a picture of a flat earth yet you get to peg everyone about a **REAL** picture of the planet? Witch we have thousands of, aswell as other planets.
Literally tie a camera to a balloon and let it up into the atmosphere yourself if you want to see a real round earth. And yes you can do that
because they claim that the moon always has the same phase as the earth, since relative to the sun the moon and the earth have parallel light and dark demarcation lines. Thus at night, you should only see a moon with light
Nope. that honor goes to the Chemtrail conspiracy. I fucking hate that conspiracy.
There are no "real" pictures of any "planet"
you'd have to join a secret society to find out
I have, and so far this is the only information I have also gleaned
apparently the farther you move up the more knowledge you are given access to
>"Science" is an entity, not an abstract apparently
>you are really dumb
>If you want irreffutable proof that the Earth is a sphere
>get an 8000 mile long rope
Why suggest a false solution that is impossible to demonstrate, this is not science. My proofs don't even require materials, just your eyes and your mind. Refute one of my four points, it should be very easy if the earth is a sphere
I've told you what I know
all I can say is that I was given information that the science we all know is a lie
>yes, because that's how gravity works, everything being pulled toward the center of the planet
gravity doesn't exist, all it's faculties can be explained by density
>We are used to it. If the earth suddenly halted, we'd know
The earth is "halted" it is motionless and many science experiments have proven it
>There's countless evidence of the horizon curving
There is none
>because we're too small to see it, if you go up high enough you can see the curve
How convenient, it's so small in fact that it doesn't exist
I was like you once
science simply doesn't live up to the hype when put to the test
>science we all know is a lie
If this is seriously the premise for your argument reconsider what you're sitting right in front cause according to you it's magical, technology is a lie you guys, computers are fucking magic and this guy is a wizard.
There's no such thing, that's literally an oxymoron. I don't think we're purporting to know anything besides that a logical process of finding information is capable of building rocket ships and cell phones and you should probably kill yourself if you're against that happening.
>4) You have never seen mountains, buildings or clouds tilt away at the horizon. And they would if the earth was curved (self evident)
On a flat Earth we should be able to see Mt Everest from America. But we can't for some reason, I really wonder why...
1. gravity doesn't exist, falling can be explained by density
2. cars have something to block the air, the earth doesn't and the air isn't physically attached to the earth like the windshield is to a car, so you'd be blasted by 1000+ mph winds
3. You thought you've seen it, the peripheries natural curve your sight, while sailing, hold a ruler close to your eye and level it to the horizon
4. If the earth is a sphere, it has a curve (spheres are objects that are round all around, kind of like a ball), so when objects move away, they will naturally tilt away too, only they don't. Think of it like this, curves are not straight lines, because they curve, but any object on this particular curve must always point away from the center.
