## Is the Earth flat or spherical? Logically, what makes more sense is an Earth that is a flat, stationary plane or an Earth that is a spinning, spherical ball?

A Spherical Earth would require gravity which we don’t see or can not prove. A Flat Stationary Earth is “what you see what you get” You see a Flat Earth with no curve. You do not feel the Earth to be moving. Easier to explain therefore occam’s razor would suggest a flat earth is what we live on.

Here is my answer to the above:

Which makes more sense to you? An Australia that looks like this from your flat earth map? (see image below)

Or an Australia that looks like this which are the correct proportions for that continent? (see image below)

One of many problems with your flat earth map is it distorts the southern hemisphere greatly because you’re trying to make something spherical look entirely flat.

Or what about this image which correctly shows the size and dimension of Antarctica? (see image below) Did you know we have people living in South America, including an American station.

In the image below is a photo of the station called Amundsen-Scott Station, located 300 feet from the south pole. At the south pole there are about 2 miles of ice over dry land, and because it’s a glacier, it’s slowly moving south at a distance of about 10 feet per year:

Below is a picture of where this station is located:

So despite what you’ve been told, Antarctica is not “a wall of ice” preventing you from finding the Earth is flat. It’s a continent, full of ice and mountains of rock. There is dry land there, too.

## I defy anyone to go with a level and see if these two towers are level or not!

Here is a diagram of the Golden Gate Bridge as you’ve probably never seen before.

It’s a suspension bridge. There are two towers that stretch cables across and suspend the bridge across the water near San Francisco, California, my former home.

If you go with a level and place it against either of the two towers, they will indicate that each tower is completely vertical. They do not lean apart. They are 100% vertical.

Yet, the distance between the bottom of the towers and the top of the towers is about 2 inches. It’s further across at the top than the bottom!

How can that be? What would be the reason that two completely vertical uprights would be further apart at the top than at the bottom?

It defies reason!

Oh wait. The Earth is round. Not according to the “flat earth society” but according to real-life engineering. I defy anyone to go with a level and see if these two towers are level or not!

## How are there pictures of the earth from space and from space stations from earth’s orbit, when we rotate over 1000 mph?

Why don’t you ask what is the circumference of Earth? 24,901 miles. That’s why it takes roughly 24 hours to go around one time, because it’s rotation at the equator is about 1,040.4 mph (much slower where you live further north). The International Space Station goes around the earth about every 92 minutes. A lot faster than the Earth rotates. Furthermore, the ISS is not traveling in the same direction of the Earth’s rotation, but more a north south direction.

In any case, the ISS travels faster than the Earth rotates, so you do see the Earth moving below it, but not so fast you can’t take a photo or shoot a video. Just look at the video below. Even this video is sped up. From up there, the Earth moves much slower. This is a time lapse video.

## How did the Flat Earther movement get started? Are they for real or just bored?

They are ignorant and think they’re smart. They believe NASA is a giant conspiracy to keep you in the dark for some reason. They also think Australia is shaped like this:

… Making Australia very long and thin. This is how Australia actually looks:

## On Board

Getting on board. I don’t think some people ever get on board the scientific bandwagon.

We have in this world a diverse group of people.

Religions. We have people of all different religions, for example. Many of them accept a non-scientific view of how the Earth was created, or the age of the Earth. I don’t know how they rationalize their viewpoints which contradicts science other than to totally ignore science. Oddly, they all use smartphones connected to the internet and electric light bulbs and flying airplanes and driving cars all created by science.

Flat Earth. There are not many of them but they are a growing number. People who watch YouTube videos and fake science. Many of them are looking for a conspiracy everywhere including World politicians! The ultimate conspiracy theory? They lied to us all along! The Earth is flat. NASA is lying!

## Seeing London From Long Island with a Telescope

Someone from the Flat Earth Society has countered a statement I made about Lake Pontchartrain in Louisiana.

I said that because of the curvature of the earth you cannot see New Orleans from the North Shore of the lake. This person has written to me that with a powerful enough telescope you can see downtown New Orleans from the North Shore of the lake. Therefore, he says, the Earth is flat.

I have nothing to say to this poor fool. Apparently if you have a strong enough telescope you can stand on Long Island and see London!
