Actually, the Earth is cubical!

That's why certain people says its flat, because when they say the earth is flat from their side of the cube, people from the other side of the cube says "no, you idiot! Earth is a sphere!" because they're perpendicular in position and thus creates a meta dimension that distorts physical perception.

Sorry. If anybody takes this seriously, you should join the Flat Earth Society.

A: They truthfully believe that the earth is flat. They do not like flaming, or even "heated debates" on the subject.
B: I don't believe the Earth is round because scientist tell me. I use common sense. A flat Earth just wouldn't explain seasons, climates, star/planet patterns, and global weather. It was pretty obvious before Christopher Columbus, as well as before NASA. It was just looked down upon because priests and religious figures demoted the idea. So if we believed the Earth is round because scientists told us so, we would have believed it when the first people, who thought logically on the subject, suggested it to us.

We have angry people in this forum (I can't believe I never looked here before, it's amazing. Since people are making heated-looking posts and heavy accusations (no names, *ahem* Joe), allow me to rebut.
About this post that you posted .... forever and ever ago. You use common sense to see how things around you interact and visualize the "bigger picture," as it were. Therefor you are not influence by scientists, right? That's aweso-- oh, wait. That's actually nowhere near what's going on. Your "common sense" is terribly different from the "common sense" back many years when the Vatican was sending bands of maurading friars to force Galileo to close shop (ironically, the Church supported Copernicus). Your common sense is intrinsically influenced by what you're taught when you're a young 'un, as well as what you learn in the present. So you say, well gee whiz, guys, you're so stupid. Of COURSE the Earth is round! But had you said this a century ago or so, you'd be the idiot. Then you went and got all learnt up and figured everyone over the course of history was stupid. But were they? The Earth looked pretty darn flat back then. If it were so apparent from the naked eye that the Earth was NOT round, I doubt people would have said "Well, if you say so..." to the Church all those years. ...and all those years before the existence of the Church.... I probably would have thought it was pretty flat (maybe I'm stupid laugh.gif ). And besides, the Earth's an obloid sphereoid.

And why does it even matter? If these people bug you so much, ignore them. They are teh silly, like me.

People believe what they want. It takes usually takes a higher being to prove them wrong. Humans can be pretty stubborn.

When I was a kid, I thought that since the world wrapped around east and west wise, it must be the same north-south wise. So I thought that Antarctica was connected to the Arctic... laugh.gif I miss those days, when everything was simple...

You DO know that website is a joke, right? Just like Scientology. And it's a way to sell books - just like Scientology.

Unless, of course, the earth is actually rendered with a raycaster engine...

Man I read a few threads of that forum someone posted, and I'm definitely an RE'er. The earth is round, there is seriously no way that big of a conspiracy could exist.

And the people just reply with backwards logic when you try to get reasonable explanations out of them. It's easy to act like you believe in something by just ignoring the question when someone tries to prove you wrong. But whatever, I'm just glad this is a free country and they can believe whatever they want and don't harm me in no way.

There are some idiots that, dispite all the modern technology we have, still persist to put their "faith" in old fables. Here is a link to a bunch of idiots who still think the Earth is flat!
Now I know that they can debate it by saying that "it is obvuos that the Earth is flat" yet they can not give any proof.

So either reply with some evidence to prove the Earth is flat or of something else like this. I think ther are people out there who don;t believe the holocaust ever happened.

haha look at the people who are in that forum they all have some kind of disturbing name like emo:something or Tobi_teh_Emo damm that forum should be hacked ey?

You're all fools.

The earth is triangle shaped! I have all the proof I need! See, there are 3 worlds, 1st World Country, 2nd World, and 3rd World. A triangle has 3 sides!!
COINCIDENCE???
Obviously not. See, I have all the proof I need and no one can dismantle that!
