    why quibble with them if its not really about a flat earth at its heart, its about mistrust and alternate theory for them.

    Just believe me it is a TRAPedzoid but you can split it into two triangles. **ck I think I actually love euclidean geometry and I have a love triangle going on with spherical and hyperbolic geometry.

    Have you heard of the time cube theory? Sounds very NT to me.

    Edit:

    Anyways, would like to add that the Earth had a nipple according to Christopher Columbus. Don't bite the breast that feeds.

    ;D round Earth is best Earth! Change my mind!



    Fun fact: if you consider scale, the surface of the earth is more polished than that of a steel marble. A sphere is the most stable form, in outer space everything tends towards becoming a sphere. Given enough mass gravity will crush any object into a sphere. Due to spin the earth is actually more potato shaped. Asteroids are not sphere shaped, because they don't meet the minimum mass requirement.

    In battle of the beliefs which fall into the category whacky-as-fuck, flat earthers at least have better arguments for their whacky-as-fuck belief that the earth is flat than Christians have for their whacky-as-fuck belief in virgin birth and human resurrection...the latter is right up there with lizard people.

    No. They aren't missing something. They're not wasting their time on an illusion being presented as fact. sigh.

    Actually, a measured response here. And yes, those videos on 'look a proof for flat Earth' are absolute scam.

    Alaska /was/ closer than LA. If you assume Earth is spherical, then you can't really show at once correct distances, correct shapes and correct proportions between any two points on a map (give scale is larger as it is here). You have to project a 3D image on a 2D map - you lose some information. It is much easier to circumnavigate the globe around the pole than around the equator - see by playing with a globe model.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Map_projection 'all projections distort the surface to some extent'

    So, if you actually use Google Earth or an app like that - something that has a 3D model in mind - and measure those distances by their 'ruler' option, you can see that the distance between Bali and Alaska is actually shorter than between Bali and LA. But that would require an ability and motivation to fact-check or something. And using geometry.


    Anything around the poles is usually projected as much bigger/larger than it actually is, with commonly used Mercator projection (used also in that video):




    The dots keep scale. All are comparable distances/areas in fact. Just some are closer to the equator, and some are not.

    See on this one where is Alaska and where LA, for example (it tries to keep the proper distance):

    Oh, wow, why didn't I end this LONG ago? It's my belief in free speech taken a bit too far. If you want to talk about flat earth, or have a place to mock people that like to think about things you have been told don't need any thinking about, then start our own thread!
    "A man with a definite belief always appears bizarre, because he does not change with the world; he has climbed into a fixed star, and the earth whizzes below him like a zoetrope."

    "Having a clear faith, based on the creed of the Church, is often labeled today as fundamentalism... Whereas relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and swept along
    by every wind of teaching, looks like the only
    attitude acceptable to today's standards."
