To be quite honest, if the world is round, the flat earthers should have been squashed miserably awhile ago. Unfortunately for the globe believers, the flat earthers are gathering steam fast, and as they may not actually be providing facts that prove that the earth is flat, they are providing proof that certain aspects of a globe earth just mathematically do not make sense. ( seeing skylines from afar that should not be able to be seen etc. )
I don't know how many times I passed over this flat earth topic, claiming in my own head, that it was ridiculous. But as I slowly got into the subject, I realized quite quickly that the officially story about earth has many inconsistencies. The flat earth debate will continue forever if the flat earthers don't get more organized and start compiling their own field evidence. I am not quite on board with the earth being flat, but there are definitely experiments that can be done by citizens that can either prove flat earth or disprove globe earth or vice versa.
I think the major experiments that could be done are:
1. Let a civilian group of researchers into Antarctica to conduct their own research. ( the reason for civilians not to be allowed in Antarctica is curious to say the least)
2. I know one thing the flat earthers want is real unobstructed footage of the earth rotating for 24 hours. ( no cgi, no airbrushing, no composites ) I found it amazing that there are apparently no cameras on satellites taking photos and videos of the earth full time if even at a bare minimum if it was only to follow weather patterns in real time. ( someone correct me if I'm wrong about this)
3. If Neil degrasse Tyson says the world is a pear shape, then let's call him on it and ask for pictures to prove this. ( not composites) or even better yet, video of the pear shaped earth spinning.
4. Some flat earthers say they would like to see a picture or Australia upside down.
5. Why don't we put some of these top experts to a lie detector? Or at a bare minimum, ask them if they would participate in a study of that nature.
What everyone, and I mean everyone, flat earther or globe earther, needs to understand Is that the world is only one of these choices. I don't believe it's whatever you want to indentify it to be, I'm not that far into the twilight zone yet. But if the earth is truly flat, and we are actually being lied to by all the major sources of information in this area...... then that's a really, really big deal. That actually changes everything. Because then we need to start asking questions like, 1) why are we being lied to? 2) who are the ones lying to us? Because if the earth is flat and we arent being told about it, there is obviously a coverup of some kind, so 3) what would the cover up be? What are they covering up?
If there is a coverup, you know and I know, that it's not gonna be good for the general public.
So utilize that open mind, globe earthers and flat earthers, remember, it's only when we stop arguing about everything and come together, that progress will be made.
