    **Warning, explicit language!**
    somewhat corny and comical, but this is just a summation of the idea, and the debate that I thought was concluded.




    This was something I stumbled across about a year ago, and had heard about this crazy idea in the past.

    For some reason, this time I became annoyed and felt the need to watch some of the clips so I could shake my head at the nonsense of these proclamations.

    To my surprise, the points that were made created a pause for ponder, and no longer did I think of these flat earth loonies, as loonies... but confused, as I soon too became.


    There are plenty of questions on this topic and the idea that things are not what they seem.

    Have debated this in my mind space and with others, and there is no justified conclusion either way, but some would just say "why does it matter?".

    B.o.B.and Tyson






    Tyson's reply...







    Does this even matter, is there merit to these discussions?
    Should this even be a question to ponder?

    Some of this is propaganda on both sides, even to the discussion being co-opted to take it away from something that may not be good for public knowledge.

    Share your thoughts and views.


    Respect

    If you see this, "don't trust your eyes" because






    Essentially, they can't figure out why people are seeing this, as it's not supposed to happen, so it's the brain's fault.

    Gotta love these non-explanations, yet NASA has supposedly been to the moon over 5 times

    Prove it's flat.... Prove it's round

    Both seem to have circumstantial evidence, other than the composite (digital renditions) images produced by aeronautic organizations

    Always thought images like these were actually photos:

    Then to read that this is a digital interpretation by an artist, and not one photo exists other than these supposed photos from the moon

    upload_2016-3-9_8-30-49.png

    Note how the cloud formations don't change or alter, aside for the last image which someone flip horizontally. Guess these images were taken all in the same day within minutes of each other?




    Not sure why people conclude this flat concept though, as it seems to be a simple way to oppose and contrast the forced idea of the "pear shaped" ball, or something like that.




    Have to ask Tyson to clear that pear shape concept up, unless he was mixing his pears up with his pizzas.

    "The Jig is Up" video starts off being hilarious. It gets sad when you realize that he gets a lot of the basics wrong. He even admits that he wont accept any evidence anyone gives him without actually addressing why anything contrary is wrong. Instead, he buys into this amazingly vast conspiracy that would require an amazing level of cooperation between so many different people going back several centuries.

    Everything he asks for as evidence is already available to him. He could even prove a lot of it himself with a telescope and making a hobbyist space blimp.

    It must really be hard to be a flat earther in 2016.....

    I think he is a newbie to the concept, and many seem to regurgitate what they have heard others say.
    But as for me, I have seen proof that the so called "Earth" is a ball, and then I have also seen that proof turn into peculiar anomalies.

    Been chewing on the information for over a year, and it still remains inconclusive.

    For one, where are the photos of "Earth" from space?
    Six trips to the moon, and none?

    Is that an incorrect statement?

    Show one, or maybe two even, and this could resolve the simple dilemma of what it looks like from a camera.
