    Thumbs down Flat Earthers... Just insanity.

    I saw that Netflix has a new documentary on the flat-earther people, and I decided to have a look at it for laughs. I was just so overcome with disgust that I had to watch it in three separate sittings because of how ridiculous it is.

    The documentary claims that NASA is of course involved in a huge conspiracy, and that there is no real, actual proof that the earth is round. Those of us that realize that the earth is a globe are termed "ballers" to them. The show looks at these YouTube self-described celebrities and their effort to 'expose the lies of centuries'. One of the leaders among the flat-earthers says that the earth is indeed flat (naturally) and that there is a wall of ice around the edges approximately 200 feet high.

    But nowhere in this documentary are some very, very basic questions asked, such as:

    Why hasn't any airplane breached this supposed 'ice wall' around the earth? 200 feet is not very high at all.
    Why hasn't any ship encountered this 'ice wall'?
    How is your GPS working?
    How is your Sirius-XM working?
    How is gravity created?
    How is an eclipse created?
    International Space Station - explain?

    The arguments presented are so laughable that it's actually sickening. "Proof" of their theories that the earth is flat is as follows:

    One of their members is standing somewhere about 10 or so miles from the city of Seattle. He says he can see the city, but would not be able to if the earth was round, because of the curvature veil effect. Yet, they make no accounting whatsoever of land elevation from the locations or other real factors. That simple examination could very easily be carried out properly on a large body of water, where the surface is equalized.

    And so on, and so on, and so on.

    How is it possible people believe the earth is flat?

    Some people are simply immune to reason, facts and evidence. It rolls off their sensibilities like water off a duck’s back.
    Such absense of logic is all around us everyday, as they’re members of our society.

    We’ve all had these conversations of similar absurdity with people before. The first step for them in finding true or false, is whether or not they want the issue to be true or false. Right or wrong to them is based on what they want, and not what is.

    They are baseless sub-thinkers with no true north (no pun) to their cognitive thought processes. Facts are quickly losing their stronghold as the end-game.

    Russia's social media posts have proven how stupid the average person is.
    I think the world has also realised the anti vaccination crap was started by Russia as well.
    Chem trails coming out of planes, geezus..
    Now the world is flat?

    Chem trails are a genuine fact. Little research will confirm that. Flat earth stuff is easily de bunked. Vaccine thing, I ain't a fan of. Still not sure if they are good or bad in all instances.

    I don't know guys. It's pretty flat where I live. No hills or nothing. One of the reasons for my tin hat.

    While "Some" evidence may lead to military, science or other chem-trails, 95% of what we see in the skies are Condensation trails. Doubt any of the airliner jets are spraying anything other than the normal condensation trails, and this is what most all of us are seeing in the skies, commercial jets. jmo

    Lots of info both ways....

    Not mentioned in this thread...Did we really go to the moon?

    Agree, most are just condensation trails. Some however ( I believe) are not. There are proofs out there, but I prefer people find the info themselves. My posting it for them does nothing to imprinting the facts in their minds.
    Moon? I dunno....Proofs going both ways. I have personally seen the shuttle blast off pointed upward. Heard the booms coming back. (And saw one blow up) I still can't get wrapped around the space x coming back down on a rolling pitching barge in the Atlantic ocean. Like the flat earth theory believers some will never change their minds unless finding out for themselves.

    I worked with one of these people briefly. It wasn't just the flat earth, it was a firm belief in almost any conspiracy. I thought I was being punked on my first conversation with him, but he was for real. The crew always had fun lunch conversations with him. If you could debunk his theory of the day he would immediately revert to " it says so in the bible". I miss debating with his crazy ass sometimes.

    I don't know if we went to the moon or not. I want to believe we did, Watched on TV as it was happening.
    But if you look at that fragile, really small capsule it does beg that question.

    How big would a computer of 1969 have to be to get that capsule there and back. Would it fit in such a small craft? Today sure, but in 1969, early 70's ?

    Why is there NO pictures that are in clear focus of the "junk" we left on the moon. The Hubble telescope could surely read a newspaper at that distance, and yet all we have is vague out of focus images.

    Or at least I haven't seen any and several years ago I did search. I found nothing.
