Flat Earth Theory - A Decline in Consciousness
The Flat Earth Theory has to be one of the most ridiculous theories of all time. The constant denial of known physics and cosmology should show that these people have serious mental issues when it comes to distinguishing facts from fiction. They believe that everything NASA says "is a lie" without having any evidence for this claim. They claim that ALL the images taken from numerous space probes are fake and every government in the world is involved in a massive world-wide cover-up. They preach that the magnetic north pole is in the center of the Flat Earth, while the magnetic south pole surrounds the "edge" of the Flat Earth. This defies everything we know about electro-magnetism, quantum physics and gravity.
Flat Earthers have no scientific evidence for any of their claims, which are mostly rooted in religious belief, faith, dogma and the Holy Bible. They choose to "beLIEve" in utter fantastical nonsense as they laugh at the rest of the world for accepting proven reality. We are the "lost souls" that Flat Earthers need to save! Yet, there is not one pilot or sailor that has ever come forward with evidence of Flat Earth. There are no pictures or footage of the "edge" of the world. The Sun is not a "spotlight." There is no "magnetic mountain" at the center of the Flat Earth. There is no heaven above us and no hell below. These are all dogmatic religious ideas... not facts rooted in scientific results.
We are all capable of having an open mind, but it seems that Flat Earthers have opened their minds so much that their brains have fallen out of their heads. They lack and deny basic common truths that have been known about the world for thousands of years. They claim Copernicus, Galileo, Magellan and Newton were all wrong about the earth without anything substantial or logical to back it up. They use Admiral Richard Byrd's exploration of the south pole as "evidence" the earth is flat... yet Admiral Byrd himself has said:
"There's a lot of adventure left DOWN at the BOTTOM of the world."
~ Admiral Richard Byrd
If Admiral Byrd knew the earth was flat, why would he use the terms we all use to describe a sphere? Why wouldn't he say "OVER" at the south pole? I'm willing to bet that Admiral Byrd knew the earth is spherical in shape. Why do Flat Earthers twist and mangle someone's words into a blatant lie? It's because they do not have any real evidence to back up any of their claims. They must paint a false image in order to suck the weak-minded into their dogmatic belief system. This is no different than what religions have done over the centuries. They LIE to the people about the world they live in with the hope of controlling their minds and bodies.
Flat Earthers are no different than religious preachers. They make ridiculous claims, they have no evidence and they rely on the process of Non-thinking called faith. If all they can do is show "Artist Renditions" of a Flat Earth... they have 0% proof. If all they can do is omit almost all of known physics based on speculative theory... they have 0% proof! They also seem to be utterly mathematically challenged. I, personally, have never been more convinced that Flat Earthers are nothing more than a mentally ill cult.
If they are not a cult, they are a controlled psy-op being used to examine humanities levels of willful ignorance, powers of research and logical consciousness, just to name a few things. And from the results that I have witnessed, I'd say that the Flat Earther population has presented us with one of the poorest displays of critical thought in the history of humankind.
It's not that we "want" things to work a certain way... there are fundamental truths that we all must conform with. For example, fire does not burn under water... no one can ever say any different, that's just how it is. Same goes for Earth... there are FIXED fundamentals that we must conform with... mainly geometry. A dodecahedron is a dodecahedron... just as fire does not burn under water. There is no changing that... it just is. I'm all for "speculation"... but it has to at least be within reason when talking about the real world. It's great to have an imagination... but when it molds your behavior and reality it can be pretty dangerous. Plus, there's a huge difference between "Theoretical" and "Hypothetical." The fact that fire does not burn under water is an "ultimate" truth. The fact that light contains no darkness and darkness contains no light is an "ultimate" truth. "Belief" has nothing to do with reality based truth. Belief just molds behavior.
I'll give some credit to Eric Dubay though... the way he reordered all the clips and events, all the proven facts he so graciously left out, his total lack of scientific understanding, etc... he sure did a great job twisting reality into an interesting fantasy.
Earth is a Sphere.
(1) The Sun & Moon (Eclipses) (Foucault Pendulum)
(2) Ships on the Horizon (ships appear as if they “emerge from the waves” because the world is not flat.)
(3) Varying Star Constellations (This observation was originally made by Aristotle (384-322 BCE)
(4) Shadows, Sticks & Sundials (Eratosthenes (276-194 BCE) used this principle to calculate the circumference of the Earth quite accurately, you can do it yourself today in your front yard!)
(5) Seeing Farther from Higher (This phenomena is caused by the curvature of the Earth, and would not happen if the Earth were flat.)
(6) Fly on a Plane (we now have planes that can circle the entire Earth without stopping.)
(7) Look at Other Planets (In 1610, Galileo observed the moons of Jupiter rotating around it.)
(8) Timezones (The only way to create two distinctly separate timezones, where there is complete darkness in one while there’s light in the other, is if the world is spherical.)
(9) The Center of Gravity (Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation)
(10) Images from Space (proves Earth is a sphere among many other things.)
