Flat Earth Society

Q: "NASA and other world space agencies have pictures of the Earth from space, and in those pictures the Earth is clearly a globe; in this day and age, hasn't it been proven beyond any doubt that the Earth is round?"

A: NASA and the rest of the world's space agencies who claim to have been to space are involved in a Conspiracy to keep the shape of the Earth hidden. The pictures are faked using simple imaging software.

Q: "Are you saying NASA had Photoshop in the 1960s?"

A: Of course not. Back then the pictures taken were of far lower quality and were likely produced using analog means.

Flat Earth Society aka the collection of people who object reality because they want to be special aka the group of lazy bums who never climbed a mountain or went to the beach to witness that the Earth is indeed round.

I just wanted to know what mental process makes anyone join this society. Probably lots of banging heads on the floor in the infancy are involved.

As far as i know the Earth has moar of an oval shape rather than the perfect sphere we see in the photos. Though it might be a major conspiracy like the guys are claiming, yeah totally a valid theory.

The earth is slightly more oval in shape, with the equator stretching and the poles being slightly flat. The difference is extremely negligible to the point that the planet looks like a sphere.

It's like they knew what I was thinking.

Seriously, what a joke. Whoever started this has had far too much free time to convince themselves that the Earth is flat. Honestly.

These guys are on the same level as those "geniuses" that believe the Earth is 6-10,000 years old and, essentially, consider the Flintstones a documentary.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.



Anyway,

I was going to fuck around and pretend I, too, believed the world was flat like a silly, naughty, little goose, and make arguments for it, but man, this is just, ugh....not worth it.

What kael said. The difference in diameter is about 42km, which is approximately 0.335%.

Just pointing out that i was being sarcastic with the "valid theory" part, cuz i think my sarcasm was a little vague.
