Intelligent indian - 2020-01-02

@mebb Look NASA has photos and so do all space agencies around the world so this flat earth theory belongs to some people who think starting unnecessary controversies makes them smart. Just show a damn photo and end the debate or else a flat earthed should be asked why is there no flat Mars society

@Cyrus Games berry gud!

Please Complete All Fields - 2020-02-20

@Travis Tyus lololol. Bruh... flat earthers don't even have coherent explanation for the sun rising and setting (or anything else).

(They TRY to pass sunsets off with some special, flat earth version of """perspective""", but REAL perspective DOES make objects get visually smaller with distance, and DOESN'T make objects appear to dive into the ground for no reason... which is the exact opposite of what flat earthers say their """perspective""" does with sunsets. That FE """perspective""" meme just proves flat earthers willingness to decieve themselves, in their desperation to imagine themselves as super-duper-woke big-brains)

Flat earth is cult of 90% morons, and 10% scammers, fleecing the moronsi. They have excuses for everything... which all completely collapse on comparison with observable reality.

They repeat this narrative that "the only proof for the globe comes from NASA...", and just cover their ears to the reality that the globe was proven >2,000 years before NASA became a thing, and, just like 2,000 years ago, anyone with half a brain and the ability to first-hand observe the real, natural world (the horizon, ocean, sun, moon, stars, sky, etc) can definitively disprove FE a dozen different ways (with zero help from NASA, or anyone else). But flat earthers will just plug their ears and say "Nuh-uh!!" and somehow believe that makes evidenc stop being evidence.

If earth WAS somehow flat, any halfway-smart middle-school kid would be able to provide empirical evidence, which science would be unable to deny (especially in the internet age)... yet no flattard has ever managed to do that... Hmm, I wonder why not? What COULD that reason possibly be?!?!¿?¿?!¿?
