They’ll be going global next :) 

Is “Global” the right word to use in conjunction with a flat earther?  🤣

 

 

Assume the use of Global was intentional.

Good luck with that! I'd be interested in having an actual discussion with a flat earther. I've been studying this phenomenon lately, trying to understand why and how it works. It seems that this problem is mostly present in the USA, which doesn't really surprise me, when you think of all the other conspiracies that are born there (Kennedy, the Moon landing, etc.).

The problem is that these people are in denial, and impossible to reason. I see people trying everyday, and these attempts always fail. They'll reply "prove it" to everything you say (of course I personally can't prove that we went to the Moon), ask you if you actually designed the tools you might mention (like cameras, lenses...), and, of course, misdirect the discussion to avoid answering questions (because they can't).

I was disappointed to see that SpaceX didn't invite any flat earther on their trip to the Moon, so that he could witness with his own eyes that the Earth isn't flat and spread the word to his flat-minded friends... 😕

You don't honestly think the rest of them would believe the word of someone who had been gifted a once-in-a-lifetime trip by those round-earth puppets of the government, do you? I wouldn't be at all surprised if the flat-earther in question didn't think his own trip was a hoax... 

Please don't be mistaken into thinking you can talk any sort of sense to these people. Any. At all. 

Anyone know how they explain that Orion is 'upside down' in Southern Australia? 

😂

It doesn't really bother me if someone believes the Easrth is flat. I believe that it isn't. Either way it doesn't change anything.    😀

Just watching it live now...Are they asking people to pay to go and see them? I guess it will be a good comedy show and give you loads of laughs. Now where is my heckling gear.

Would be nice to see the tour venues with an appropriate Latitude and Longitude.

By definition, this event isn't going to go around the World.

The laws of physics don't care if you do or do not believe in them :wink2:

If people want to spent their lives being ignorant of fact, it is their choice :smile:

Well, they say a Moon eclipse is not due to the shadow of the Earth, but a mysterious dark object going in front of the Moon... So there must be an explanation for that too, and I can't wait to know it! 😂

Dark matter ?

Only watched a bit, but the argument at that section was that  a guy had managed to view things a long way away that should not have been visible if the earth was curved. Hmm.

Some people can be hard work. I have better things to do.

Thanks for the link

No point in talking to them! As a well-known Greek gentleman put it some time back:-

"Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish" (Euripides).

This always sounds like a witch hunt. Similar to the "Out of bounds" debate on Ufo's and no talk about the origins of the universe. Be happy that you know your truth.
