Flat earth


Anyone think that the earth is actually flat and NOT a globe?

Hey Chilled,

I am a scientist, a geologist, hydrogeologist and oceanographer. The Earth is not flat. But maybe you would believe that more coming from an astrophysicist.

Hope you are having a good day, today, Chilled!!

There is a guy we went to high school with 40 years ago and recently re-connected with on FB. He has continually bombarded us with Flat Earth facts, Religious Scripture and video hyperlinks and just will not stop. It's crazy. He will not rest it seems until he converts us too!

theres a guy that took a 6" level on a plane to prove the earth is flat. i gotta a good laugh:
years ago i was settin up forms for footings for an addition. boss forgot the transit, so i set the forms to level with a 4' level while he ran and got the transit.
with the transit, they were out 1' on a 60' run.

Apparently even people from the dark ages knew the earth and the universe was round, the fact people said they thought the earth was flat was mostly a myth by Victorians trying to make their ancestors look dumb, I mean the Greeks and Romans knew the universe was round before modern man proved it. The ball on atlas shoulders is actually the heavens (the universe) and it's round.

Where to meet someone to work with

I can't run my own business I have the ability but I have a well paid job that takes a lot of my time. Also running my own business puts me at risk of drinking again as i'll be home all day working very little hours and having money coming in daily. Trouble is since I stopped drinking I lost contact with everyone. I am in London and Essex and need to find someone to help run the business, help answering emails and sending packets, for this I'm offering 25% of profits which should only work out a couple of hours every couple of days maybe 8 hours a week in total, where could I find something like this? Anyone know a small business meet up site? Thanks for reading

Sorry this has come up in the wrong place could a forum administrator move it to a new thread if possible, thanks

what i dont get is how the flat earthers on YT use other peoples' videos. the famous one being ky michelson and the gofast crews rocket launch footage. well, using it to prove the earth is flat and theres a dome
https://youtu.be/001IXnp0ogc
apparently, becuase the rocket stopped spinning abruptly, that is when it hit the dome. BOINGGGGGG!
the crew that built that rocket are an amazing group- intelligent enough to know they would need a despin and the simplest, most proven method is a yoyo despin mechanism- used a whole lot on sounding rockets and setellites.
but nope, not to the folks who say the earth has a dome.

they use other peoples' videos, yet these folks wont pool their $$$$$ together to get their own footage from above the karmen line. im sure they could come up with about a quarter mil and do it.

it all makes some of what i said when i was drinking appear somewhat sane!

I'm not saying that the rocket hit the dome, that's absurd......but it does beg the question, WHY did the rock go thud and stop spinning?
