    nah. but thanks.
    So lol they just got pwned I think!

    The Flat Earth Society .org is a forum where people that believe the earth is flat hang around. And NO MATTER WHAT you throw up on there, they always have a reason for it. So if I say the boat disappeared because of the curvature of the earth, they would say something very stupid like you can't see that far, or point me to a 1 thousand page book and tell me to read it.

    So I just posted this:
    http://theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=30285.0

    And no I did not just take that trip, I'll buy a fighter jet instead, lol.

    Lol at this reply:

    Maybe they have a point!

    Maybe the earth IS flat... you never know, since there is no solid proof to prove either... lol

    The guys have done good research and IMO if a movie is made based on these er theories, it could be that they get many followers....personally...for me earth is round, there is no proof but I Know it is round.

    I think the point of the site is to show that some things can never be argued against with some people. Theres always an argument against something and no one can prove things 100% most of the time. You always have to rely on outside information and decide what is trustworthy and what is not.

    I think when spacetravel gets a lot more cheaper maybe then the society will have to stfu when you send their leader out there to watch the earth. You can't possibly be such an idiot to discard the fact that earth is ROUND. What is the moon then? flat too?

    The Earth is flat! Also everything revolves around it.... You should sell them an ebook on "why the earth is flat and we have proof"... Then they would for sure be PWNED!!!

    The thing is these people don't believe the Earth is really flat. I saw this group on TV and it is more of a celebration of the period of time more than anything else. They like to dress up like they did back then and it's pretty much entertainment purposes.

    Another thing is that these people like to debate. I used to do forensic debate aka policy debate throughout high school and if anyone knows anything about debaters, they can carry on arguments forever entangling you in little side issues confusing your point if you let them. They can very methodical in plotting arguments so in a way you are just helping them exercise their brains - true debaters love playing the bad guy and winning at it.

    That's why my gf hates to argue with me - I totally f*ck her up she's half retarded already, lol.

    That's not really the sum of it.

    If you look on other places of that forum, it's just a forum for practicing debate in a strange way. It's actually pretty cool when you realize what it is.

    I did the exact same thing in a giant thread on this forum about legalizing weed. I just argued against it and gave every reason i could lmao. I don't care if they do or don't.

    I love how you actually read the thread to find out they don't actually believe that.

    @Hagiology, If you search their forums you will find a damn long thread in which they give various 'theories and equations' as well as a model of earth according to them. I will try and find it...wait!

    many alien/space movies show earth, from moon aswell, in many cartoon earth is shown too. And the earth shown in "Red Planet" seems 200% real (considering we believe in RE), so the simple answer to your query is that those pictures are fake. :)

    See this thread though -> (I beleive in round earth, but you can not fight with these guys....they have no other job) http://theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=1324.0

    Ship theory is enough to shut them up I suppose. Perhaps they should go space-travel-holiday to make them lick their own spit..

    The world IS flat. It's carried through space on the backs of four elephants, which in turn are carried by a giant turtle.
