Yes. The Evidence is quite the Mind-Blowing. This Earth is more-likely to be FLAT than a Sphere.

Well... how did you arrive at that as a conclusion? Care to share some of this evidence?

Too much to go over but we can start with simulated weightlessness via camera-tricks with air-craft...

On my end the video that plays is a little doc about "parabolic flight" -the NASA program that uses a jet airliner to simulate weightlessness in space. Nothin' to do with Flat-Earth-ism.

Though when the tape is done the screen displays selections that are flat earth related.

Earth looks squashed.


The planet has love handles. Its flabbier in the waist (ie the equator) than at the poles.

In fact I've read that the "Mississippi River flows uphill" because its source (closer to the Pole in Minnesota) is closer to the center of the Earth than is its mouth in Louisiana (which is closer to the equator).

I have now decided: I am actually the reincarnation of Thomas Edison.

It's as valid an assertion as the OPs. :D

Actually, it is not only flat, but hollow too.

So what you're saying is we should rename it planet Muffintop?

What exactly would be gained by convincing billions of people that the earth is a different shape from what it really is.

Ive thought that maybe the moon landing was hoaxed, in part, to create a mythology that justifies industrialized civilization. Whether the ISS or moonlanding are real or not, a lot of Utopian science fiction is about getting the public to go along with the idea of indefinite, technological and industrial growth. The reality is that the ecosystems will probably collapse before we ever achieve the pie in the sky visions promised to us by futurists.

Its not unlike how they made up God as a condescending, kingly figure to justify monarchism and serfdom. I wouldnt be surprised if we believe in similar, false paradigms today that our fabricated and encourage for the purpose of social control.

Are you a member of the Flat Earth Society, or are you just sarcastic?
