I must admit some of the stuff made me go “hmmm...” as in “that could possibly have some weight to it.” But overall, nope. It’s a globe. I feel some people on the docu just enjoy the celebrity like status they get from followers.

Sometimes I worry about the death of science. But that's probably a grumpy old man perspective. There have always been snake oil salesmen and gullible rubes.

I can't believe I misspelled "there." That's one of my pet peeves.

It doesn't matter what proof you have. Idiots can dispute anything. You could become an astronaut, fly to space, see the round Earth with your own eyes and still come back and say it's flat and that was a hologram.

This is my favorite thing about flat earthers... who's behind this MASSIVE conspiracy to convince us all that the earth is round? I mean these people have big bucks to buyout millions of scientists, government agency etc. All for what? What do they have to gain?

It’s easier to control people when they think they live on a sphere.

The only possibility of it to me lay with a test by one of the most prolific and important inventors in history. He purported to successfully test a death ray and fired a beam from his laboratory in the US to Russia.

Think about this for a second...either the beam passed through the earth's surface and exited or it curved to match the earth's curvature. However we know based on current published physics information that both possibilities are impossible. That only leaves a third...the earth is flat and the beam traveled a linear path to the target.

It’s just absolutely astonishing that sheep can be manipulated to believe literally anything. It’s hard to have compassion for people with such mornic views.

I thought scientology proved the earth was round when the aliens were forced into the volcanos? To say the earth is flat, it's like saying L Ron Hubbard's Dianetics was BS...which we all know is absolute truth.

Problem with this is that they believe the edges are surrounded with these ice mountains which are impossible to climb and even if you did manage to climb them military would stop you, as they are constantly patrolling and preventing people from doing it.

What are your thoughts? I mean, there’s no indisputable evidence for either. I do find it a bit hilarious that all the experiments they did in the documentary didn’t help support their argument that Earth is flat.
I watched for an hour hoping it was at least interesting. Only one piece of evidence and it was incorrect.

Waste of time.

Qanon will prove everyone wrong and prove that the chemtrails are using mind control and keeping everyone away from the edges and the pediphiles away from the pizza parlors. I'm also sure he/she will do something about all the toxic vaccines.

I wonder how many flat eathers are also anti vaxxers. I suspect there has been some cross pollination.
