No I don't think it's flat because we've been on the moon and there pictures of it. But I do have a buddy that watched a few vids and started to believe that the earth is flat and it was driving me nuts

The thing that I can't seem to get past, every couple hundred years scientist come with a new theory that disproves the last. I'm not saying it's flat or round. But I wouldn't be surprised if scientists back track and have a new theory in a few years. I do think people are too quick to dismiss theory's. Because I know no one on the tech game has ever been to space and saw it with their own eyes. Also, gravity isn't a 'law' it's a theory. Everything we know about the universe could be completely wrong.

I tend to believe we are in some sort of controlled simulation. Another thing I tend to believe is that something (not the traditional religious god) creates everything. I think we live on one plane of existence and our true purpose in life is to advance to the next plane of existence. So I prefer to keep an open mind and not dismiss things so easy.

Some stuff I see makes a little sense, then some stuff just seems ridiculous. Really I think Donald Trump is a time traveler

Mooneye wroteThis is how I see it.

If the earth was actually round, wouldn't water go down all the time and never stay in one place like the oceans?

It's a weird topic and so many different opinions.

Edit: Looks like alot of people agree with me lmao but prove to me that the Earth is round in your own words with details, I might change my mind.


Gravity, lol. If you wanna see something interesting go on youtube and watch how water will flow down a drain with its equivalence to the equator. If you're right on the equator water will drain straight down with no clockwise motion. If your above the equator water will drain counter-clockwise and if you're below it will be clockwise.

OutlawRedneck wroteBeing an Astrophysics major, here are a few things to show why the isn't flat:
1.) Look at the Moon. Earth's shadow on the Moon, is round.
2.) The Horizon. Ever been to a beach and looked off in the distance? You can only see so far. Also, ships do not just 'appear' out of the horizon.
3.) Varying constellations. The farther you get from the equator, you see different star constellations.
4.) Shadows. If the world had been flat, then two sticks in different locations would produce the same shadow.

Normally I would not get into this kind of thing, but since alot people are starting fights over this, I figured I'd give my two cents.


I too used to study physics, and these sort of topics infuriate me just as much :')

I don't understand why Flat Earthers are more than willing to accept that other planets are infact spherical/an oblate sphereoid but are so set in their ways of thinking that Earth is the one oddity out of the solar system?

I was gonna say thankfully it's been a proven fact that the world isn't flat, yet for some reason there are those flat earthers.

Mikey wroteI mean i believe its not flat, but i hate people that are 100% sure that its not flat, like how can you be sure? We only know from what we have seen on the TV or pictures of the world being round.

Not flat in my opinion, loads of evidence to point towards it!
