    Ok, lots of FE questions but too many angry replies, so I'll leave it. Weird to me that people get jacked up but whatever.

    Ghosts, Aliens, Big Foot- are they all the same? Are they all demons & angels? Why no solid proof?

    There you go, have fun!

    +1 for FE as its own thread (in hell).

    False. Or let's just say, citation needed.

    You mean like when Galileo was locked up by the Catholic Church for suggesting that the Earth revolved around the Sun?

    That is not something to speculate on without insulting a lot of people. I'll just say look under the surface

    A perfect example of the kind of avoidance of facts that makes it pointless to discuss things with you.

    So, any evidence Tesla believed in a flat earth or can we strike down your response as bullshit, leaving 0 examples of scientific experts that are proponents of FE theory?

    Globe Vision is infinite but ability to use search engine is quite limited

    I think I saw a chupacabre last week!
    It was spooky

    Crankyrayhanky, what do you make of latitudinal circumnavigation? Surely if someone can cross both poles, and longitudinally circumnavigate the planet, then there is no more FE theory. Unless you resort to mass hallucination, which still doesn't point to FE.

    I agree
    Moving across the South Pole & popping back North would defeat FE

    Not many have claimed to have done it, <5?
    It's a hostile environment & difficult to verify
    The Antarctica Treaty also makes sure that there's no private exploration... funny, that's the only Treaty I know of that isn't breached or even discussed. That Treaty is, by definition, a Conspiracy of the world's powers

    Antarctica is a key to this whole thing, lots of curious events going on down
    there

    I could go on, but I have a clown stuck in my pipes & I need to plunge that creepy thing out

    Here's a fresh one for you:

    It is actually legal for Pro Sports Teams to "fix" games ?! Not unlike pro wrestling....check out this site, quite a bummer for me as I love sports:

    Hopefully the gif shows up. It's a chimp playing table tennis with a dude...and winning.

    Is this real?!

    I want so bad for this to be real.

    I couldn't see your gif, but I looked it up on youtube and it seems to be real. I see no reason a chimp couldn't play ping pong. Good stuff.

    Ok, You obviously don't have a clue about geometry, how vision or perspective works... or you are trolling with us all (I bet on this one). Do you even know what light is? Colors? The sun is a Spotlight? Have you ever lighten up a candle or a incandescent lightbulb and see how it glows and lightens in every direction? If the sun is a spotlight (named after a 3D rendering software light objects like Maya or 3DSmax? Really?) what is blocking the Sun's light to propagate in every direction? Do you know the properties of light at all?

    Yes, we can see the infinity of things, "vanishing points" ARE the INFINITE, as well as the HORIZON, and no, we don't need no ZOOM lens to prove that. That was accomplished by Filippo Brunelleschi way back in... 1413 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perspective_(graphical)) way back in the renascence and WAY before the Earth was proven to be round and generally accepted as so within the christian European/ocidental world (Hey, this reading is very interesting: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spherical_Earth, it looks that the round Earth theory is WAY older than what I thought)... go figure!

    Oh, also note that the GEOMETRIC HORIZON does not match the Earth's one, the first is a straight line, the second is a parabola line... go figure.

    ... so, all in all, cheers for your time and patience, but, no, geometrically, the Earth is round, sphere like or ellipsoid like of some sort (larger in the equator).


    If it is like that NOKIA video of Bruce Lee playing Table Tennis with Nunchakus or Tom Hanks in Forest Gump... well, it's all fake, all CGI...

    Now now- if anything, there's a cautionary tale to be had.

    Oftentimes, the conspiracy theorist asks, "cui bono?", but sometimes you've gotta do the same when considering the alternative theories proposed. Or else, you'll find yourself carrying water for something less credible just for the gratification of believing something different.
