The Earth is made up of 70%+ water. That water is non-carbonated water. So itso-facto, the Earth is flat!!! /s

Edit: moving the /s so it’s more visible

The word you're looking for is "ipso-facto," but please don't change it. Your way is funnier.

This is the kind of logic I like.

I love watching that video where this guy makes a test that would 100% prove the Earth is flat. When he gets to the results of the experiment, he realizes hes completely wrong.

Edit: If anyone hasn't seen it, watch it, its funny

Doesn’t that mean the earth is still?

To paraphrase what House said about religious people: If you could reason with flat earthers, there would be no flat earthers.

I don't understand how you can have flat earthers on a planet where you can stand looking out at the ocean and actually see that it is curved.

That’s the best thing I have ever heard.

I am once again shilling for In Search of a Flat Earth.

But very, very briefly, Flat Earthers aren't actually invested in the Earth being flat part of Flat Earth ideology. They're far more emotionally invested in the and they're hiding it from us! part of Flat Earth ideology.

No arguing with a flat earther, lol. How did they even came up with their belief? They just woke up one day and decided, "Fuck it, the Earth is flat and I don't care about what science says".

They do things in chronological order - somewhat bizarre since the ways that we measure time (days/years etc) are based upon the rotations of one spherical object around another.

First there was only flat Earth, so they could not see (debatable). Then there was science (it has always existed, but later becomes understood). However, since science was not there first then science is wrong (clearly).

Now to fully complete their argument they have to insert the act of God into the equation. God created the Universe, and God didn't know about science either, so the Earth is flat...and so are the wheels on the bus that go flat and flat, flat and flat, flat and flat, the wheels on the bus go flat and flat, all day long.

If that all sounds doolally to you, you're halfway there to being a flat-earther.

I mean globe is more complicated shape than flat. Early humans would have gone with flat shape because it is simpler, just as effective as long as your data collection area is not that large and your tools are not that accurate. There is a major religious reasonings behind it and some just want to believe that they are heroes in a movie where big bad government is trying to control them.

I love flat earthers because no matter how bad my life gets, at least I'll never be as much of failure as a fucking flat earther.

Yeah, and your life may never be as difficult as theirs. Imagine being a flat earther. Imagine having everyone dismiss your core beliefs out of hand. Imagine having everyone call you a liar and a fool. Imagine going online, trying to find someone who will listen, but all anyone has to offer is hate and attempts at making you abandon your beliefs. And now imagine doing all that, wading through everything everyone shovels in your face... for something that's deadass wrong as hell. Imagine being such an utter dumbass that you buy into that malarkey. Flerfers deserve everything they get.
