Flat-Earthers consider our current Earth model as false. The flat earth theory surfaced centuries ago and has been believed by some ancient civilizations the Earth was flat. The modern Flat-Earthers label the spherical model as a government lie based on several theories.
The modern Flat-Earthers originates from the English writer Samuel Rowbotham. In 1849 he published a pamphlet called Zetetic Astronomy. “The Earth not a Globe,” the title of the pamphlet to present the world his scientific research known as today as the flat earth theory. One of them is The Flat Earth Society founded by the Australian Steven McDonald on August 5, 2013. “A place for free thinkers,” according to the website.
“How can it be noon and midnight simultaneously? It is certainly impossible with a flat earth and a sun millions of times more massive,” says physlink. “Pictures and videos taken by orbiting satellites and space stations are certainly the most definitive proof that the earth is a sphere,” they continued.
The Flat Earth Theory Don’t Like Columbus
In the book the works of Washington Irving, Columbus’s assertions that the Earth was spherical was raised scriptural objections.
The free-thinkers or flat-earthers were not thinking really free upon Columbus discovered the Earth had no edge and discredited him “He pronounces the doctrine of antipodes to be incompatible with the historical foundations of our faith” or “This would be, there for, to discredit the Bible, which expressly declares, that all men are descended from one common parent.”
The passage cited from Lactantius to confute Columbus, is in a strain of gross ridicule, unworthy of so grave a theologian. “Is there anyone so foolish,” he asks, “ask to believe that there are antipodes with their feet opposite to ours; people who walk with their heels upward, and their heads hanging down? That there is a part of the world in which all things are topsy-turvy: where the trees grow with their branches downward, and where it rains, hails and snows upward? The idea of the roundness of the earth,” he adds, “was the cause of inventing this fable of the antipodes with their heels in the air; for these philosophers, having once erred, go on in their absurdities, defining one with another.” Objections of a graver nature were advanced on the authority of St. Augustine. He pronounces the doctrine of antipodes to be incompatible with the historical foundations of our faith; since, to assert that there were inhabited lands on the opposite side of the globe, would be to maintain that there were nations not descended from Adam, it being impossible for them to have passed the intervening ocean. This would be, there for, to discredit the Bible, which expressly declares, that all men are descended from one common parent.
When Columbus unwillingly proved the Earth had no edge it became clear the flat Earth theory is more faith based. According to the flat Earth theory the bible mentioned the Earth is flat, based on that the Flat-Earthers are in denial and won’t accept the truth.
The bible does not claim the Earth is flat. The Bible tells in Revelation 7:1 “After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree”. The reference is to the cardinal directions: north, south, east, and west. Similar terminology is often used today when we speak of the sun’s rising and setting, even though the Earth, not the sun, is doing the moving. Bible writers used the “language of appearance,” just as people always have. Without it, the intended message would be awkward at best and probably not understood clearly.There is no way this is possible if the sun is moving in a giant circle centered at the North Pole. Bare in
“He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing, ” Job 26:7. The Earth is suspended in space, the obvious comparison being with the spherical sun and moon.
“He marks out the horizon on the face of the waters for a boundary between light and darkness,” Job 26:10. He described a circle upon the face of the waters until the day and night come to an end. A spherical Earth is also described in Isaiah 40:21-22—“the circle of the earth.” It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers. “When he established the heavens, I was there; when he drew a circle on the face of the deep,” Proverbs 8:27.
Not only the Bible mention the Earth had a spherical shape, the ancient Sumers (Sumerians) perceived the earth 3600-3800 BCE to be one of many spherical globes circling the sun, since everything in the sky was round, and the moon can be seen to be a spherical object. In the middle ages, they believed the Earth was in the center of our solar system. The Sumerians were able to draw planet Saturn with the circle on a clay tablet 3600 BCE. The bible is only 3,400 years old and has a lot of comparisons to any other religious books with the faith of the Sumers.
Edge of the World
It remains surprisingly silent and unanswered when someone asked at The Flat Earth Society why nobody explored the edge of the world. According to the flat Earth theory, the earth has the North Pole in the center and Antarctica as a wall around the edge.
This is the generally accepted model among members of the society. The earth is surrounded on all sides by an ice wall that holds the oceans back. This ice wall is what explorers have named Antarctica and nobody knows what lies behind the walls, according to TFES.
The farthest object visible with the naked eye is the Andromeda galaxy, located an astonishing 2.6 million light-years from Earth. According to this scientific fact it would not be a problem to see the edge of the Earth while flying altitude nearly at the edge of space on locations the flat Earth theory claims as the edge of the Earth. Watch the videos below, from 5 different locations people have send balloons to the edge of space.
24 hour sun in Antarctica
This video shows a time lapse of the 24 hour sun in Antarctica, which is impossible on a flat Earth. The sun is moving in a clockwise direction in the sky. You can see a wrist watch in the shot, so this wasn’t taken in the Arctic and reversed. You can also see Scott Base in the background. You can see Scott Base on Google Earth. The sun is clearly visible for 24 hours. There is cloud cover for part of the video, but you can clearly see that it is still day and you can see where the sun is through the clouds. I make these points in the anticipation of the insane objections flat Earthers will make.
There is no way this is possible if the sun is moving in a giant circle centered at the North Pole. Bare in mind, at the same time there is 24 hours of darkness in the Arctic. Flat Earthers would have us believe that the sun can shine at all points around the edge of a flat Earth, even when it is on the opposite side of the flat Earth, whilst being invisible at the center of the flat Earth.
Balloon to the Edge of Space South Australia
South Australia is one of closest location near the edge of the world.
High Altitude Balloon Near Space Project New Zealand
New Zealand lies closer to the edge of the world than Southern Australia.
Near Space Balloon GoPro – Project Cirrus – Brazil
Brazil can be considered as the nearest location of the edge of the world.
GoPro into space Balloon HD – Argentina 2014
Argentina is according to the flat Earth map close to the edge of the world.
West Antarctica Spider Balloon Launch
Antarctica is considered as the edge of the world according to the flat Earth theory. However, the footage below shows you…
“In all five videos the camera was spinning 360 degrees, hold a tennis ball and when you point five spots on different locations on the ball you discover you are always in the center of the ball just like in the five videos. The distance between the horizon and the camera always remains the same no matter you are in New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, Argentina or Antarctica. Which is not possible when the Earth is flat”. Below you see an illustration:
The video version of the Flat Earth Theory 100% Debunked – Forgotten Evidence.
Flat Earther Tiago Brandao
Tiago Brandao said the following: “Trying debunk flat Earth without any scientific approach isn´t debunking it, nice try anyway ;)”. He continued, “at least i did my scientific approach and proved wrong your believe, because in this video you didn´t presented one single scientific evidence disproving it. By all means continue believing in your blind science ;). Show me some curved water because the planet is 70% of it and good luck on that denier”
Unfortunately Tiago Brandao is in denial, ignoring the radius of planet Earth which has influence on personal visual distance, small people see less far than tall people. Also he forget how far and how wide an eye can see.
NASA Is a Hoax
If NASA is a hoax, how can a little boy of 15 years old use satellite images from space agencies such as NASA and JAXA (Japan) and Google Earth and discovered a third city called the 118th city K’aak Chi or cannon? This proofs two things: NASA is not a hoax and the satellite images are real, meaning the earth is a globe.
Curvature of the earth(new)
See 3D drawing below: Made in ratio (KMs) based on the flat earth theory. Something the Flat Earth Theory is not showing you either.
According to the flat earth theory the Sun’s diameter is 32 miles(51.49km’s) and is located approximately 3000(4828.032 kms) miles above the surface of the earth. The radius of Earth is 25000 miles(40233.6 kms). Fascinating that this small dot a large part can illuminate the earth. Don’t you think? Why is https://wiki.tfes.org/Sun or any Flat earth society skipping the size of the Sun? Except for http://www.theflatearthsociety.org/tiki/tiki-index.php?page=The+Sun
However, nobody can provide some scientific evidence how they know the Sun’s diameter is 32 miles, that is located approximately 3000 miles from earth and that the radius of Earth is 25000 miles?
The oblate spheroid I call Earth have an average diameter of 7,918 mi (12,742 kms) [source].
The suns’ diameter is about 109 times that of Earth, and its mass is about 330,000 times that of Earth, accounting for about 99.86% of the total mass of the Solar System.[Prof. Michael Woolfson]
Conclusion: The Flat Earth Theory
It basically comes down that the Free-Thinkers are not thinking free at all, especially when critical questions are being asked.
This article proof that the flat Earth theory can be considered as a hoax to test the intelligence of human kind. Their current scientific studies are based on air, the more complicated theories the better, because for many people the unknown happens to be more convincing.
There is no need to theorize any longer the Earth is flat, “it’s invalid science and an insult to science” to apply the flat Earth theory on a spherical Earth and an insult to Einstein and human intelligence in general.
Flat Earthers Have a Mental Abnormality
Borderline personality disorder:
They have reported 6 symptoms of BPD at a moderate to severe degree. Because they have 5 or more symptoms of BPD at this level, thus meeting the criteria for the disorder, they may wish to be evaluated by a psychiatrist or other mental health professional who is skilled in this area to determine if they have the disorder, and possibly a co-occurring disorder as well.

Their score is 33, out of 40. Higher scores indicate greater levels of narcissism.
– not capable of putting the organization’s needs before his or her own [ego] needs.
– wants you to feel like you are losing your mind, keep you guessing and doubting yourself. Then you become dependent on him and he is in control. Eventually, you see him for what he really is. You are now able to be free!
– Their lack of empathy colors everything they do. They may say, “How are you?” when you meet, but they are working from memory. They are not interested in how you are.
– Virtually all of their ideas or ways of behaving in a given situation are taken from others, people they know and perhaps think of as an authority (mirroring).
– Their sense of self-importance and lack of empathy means that they will often interrupt the conversations of others.
– Listen for the constant use of “I”, “me” and “my” when they talk.
– They feel that the rules at work don’t apply to them.
– They will always cheat whenever they think they can get away with it.
– If you share workload with them expect to do the lion’s share yourself.
– They love to delegate work or projects, then interfere by micro-managing it. If it goes well, they take the credit, if it goes badly they blame the person they delegated it to.
– There tends to be higher levels of stress with people who work with or interact with a narcissist, which in turn increases absenteeism and staff turnover.
– They get impatient and restless when the topic of discussion is about someone else, and not about them.

Reality anxiety is fear of real-world events. The cause of this anxiety is usually easily identified. For example, a person might fear receiving a dog bite when they are near a menacing dog. The most common way of reducing this anxiety is to avoid the threatening object.
Reality anxiety brings us to denial and Ineffective denial:
in psychiatry, a defense mechanism in which the existence of unpleasant internal or external realities is denied and kept out of conscious awareness. By keeping the stressors out of consciousness, they are prevented from causing anxiety
Ineffective denial a nursing diagnosis accepted by the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association, defined as denial that is detrimental to health when a person makes a conscious or unconscious attempt to disavow the meaning or even the knowledge of an event in order to reduce anxiety or fear.
Those are the same kind of people that listens to Alex Jones or are listening to Alex Jones.
