Shape is a social construct

If a man can become a woman because he believes it, there is no reason the Earth can't become flat for precisely the same reason:
As a football player, I’ve been a fan of Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs from the moment he made his first impact on the NFL as a rookie in 2015. As a potential social-media troll, he may have even better chops. Unless he’s really not deliberately riling up his followers when he suggests that he agrees with NBA player Kyrie Irving’s view that the Earth is flat.

Yes, whether the Earth is flat has recently become a thing in the sports world. Irving may be trolling, too, and the ultimately genius of the approach (if it’s all an act) is that it points out the nature of the age in which we currently reside. Given the ridiculous factual claims that people are willing to blindly embrace as true, maybe it’s not ludicrous to think someone genuinely rejects the long-settled notion that the Earth is round.

The Big Lead has items on both Irving’s comments and the tweets from Diggs. My own assessment is that Diggs is having fun with the issue, but that Irving actually may believe what he’s saying.

Irving would hardly be alone regarding the lingering notion that the planet is pancake-shaped; a few minutes with Google unlocked plenty of evidence of others who reject the evidence that the world is round. The argument hinges on the notion that the spherical theory emerged as a way to supplant religion with science, since the Bible suggests that the world is flat.

The claim is less stunning given that the flat-or-round world generally has morphed into a place where the line between fact and opinion has been obliterated, and all that matters is what you believe.

I believe I now need a nap.
The real question is: Bruce Jenner, brilliant troll or transgender truther?

Of course the Earth is flat. In fact it travels through space on a disc supported by four giant elephants on the back of a giant Tortoise.
The historian Terry Pratchett wrote extensively of the formation of the Disc and its most famous and infamous characters.

What do you expect,really? Once people swallow the faith of Global Warming they may as well become flat earthers because science is just another belief system to them.

Milo is at least honest that transsexuals are disordered. He has also said before that homosexuality is not normal, and has spoken of his desire to rid himself of it.

What we identify as a psychological disorder is actually spiritual. There is no natural cause for homosexuality. It and "transgenderism" result from lust and idolatry, i.e. a rejection of God.

When one rejects God, he rejects truth. And then he will pervert reality, constructing it according to his whims and fancies, such as that the earth is flat, or that sexual deviance is normal.

I'm a photographer at times. I have used very long lenses to capture detail invisible to the naked eye. I am also familiar with optical principles like diffraction and optical effects like tose produced by fresnel lenses (which exxagerate diffraction of light).


Anyone, anywhere on the planet can easily determine if scientists have been lying about reality, and the Earth is flat. If you have 400 bucks.


Go to Best Buy. Get a digital canera with the longest OPTICAL zoom you can find. And a tripod. For crying out loud, get a tripod.


Then, go to the ocean. Find a boat heading out to sea. Train your camera on it, then wait for it to disappear. Then, zoom in your camera to max magnification, and recenter the boat in the frame. Look, and see if you can see the waterline on the boat.


Then do some math. Curvature is approximately expressed thus: mile×mile×8inches. So, 1 mile away 8 inches of 'drop' due to curvature, 2 miles is 32 inches, 3 miles is 72 inches, etc.


Even approximating the distance of that boat, coupled with what you are guaranteed to see with your very own eyes, is going to make you question a whole lot. I have 'known' this for years without giving it a thought. So, truly, if you feel the need to scoff, try it first, then scoff. Otherwise, its pissing in the wind.

We all know the earth is flat, just look at it! Flat like a pancake. Like a pancake! Is that a tall stack or a short stack? Diane the waitress wants to know! So tell her brothers, is your earth a short stack or a tall stack of pancakes?

What's a good pancake without butter? Hardly a pancake at all! So God put His pat of butter on this Earf. That old butter God dropped on this pancake earth hundreds, even thousands of years ago! And what did we do, brothers and sisters? What did we do? God gave us his butter. And we done used up God's butter pat! All that butter soaked down into the cracks and crannies and DOWN! through the surface of the earth, and we been pumping it out and burning it, and wearing it and driving around with it. Like we owned it. Like it were ours and not His butter. God don't like His pancake Earf without butter!

And if it's flat like a pancake, What else is a comin'? What Else Is Comin on this pancake Earf? Cause God ain't done gettin' His stack of pancakes ready! He moves in His own time! It may seem slow to us, but God moves in His own time. God done dropped his butter on the earth, and soon he's going to pour His Syrup!

So tell me, Brethren and Sistern, whatcha gonna do? What Are You Gonna Do When The Syrup Comes? What will you do brothers?

While I think the whole 'flat earth' notion is hooey, there have been plenty of 'scientific' frauds, such as Piltdown Man, ''cold fusion'', AGW and many others.
Not to mention the ongoing debate as to whether the Apollo missions are real or not (FTR, I lean towards 'real', but I don't consider claims of 'staged' silly). There are those who genuinely believe the Earth is hollow, and not just as fodder for Fantasy novels.
So, no, I don't consider someone who believes the Earth is flat (or the existence of 'Bigfoot'/UFO's) is ignorant. However those who deny race realism I do call ''flat earthers''.

From Robert Anton Wilson & Robert Shea's Illuminatus!:
[Joe Malik has infiltrated the 1970 Chicago national convention of the Knights of Christianity United in Faith (KCUF). He has spiked the punch with a drug cocktail, AUM, intended to turn neophobes into neophytes. He is talking with Clem Cotex of Little Rock.]

Go, baby, go, Joe thought. The AUM is working. He quickly derailed the conversation. "Another thing that bothers me. Why don't we ever challenge the spherical earth theory?"
"Huh?"
"Look," Joe said. "If all the scientists and eggheads and commies and liberals are pushing it in our
schools all the time, there must be something a little fishy about it. Did you ever stop to think that
there's no way— just no way at all— to reconcile a spherical earth with the story of the Flood, or
Joshua's miracle, or Jesus standing on the pinnacle of the Temple and seeing all the kingdoms of the
earth? And I ask you, man to man, in all your travels have you ever seen the curvature anywhere?
Every place I've been is flat. Are we going to trust the Bible and the evidence of our own senses, or
are we going to listen to a bunch of agnostics and atheists in laboratory smocks?"
"But the earth's shadow on the moon during an eclipse . . ."
Joe took a dime out of his pocket and held it up. 'This casts a circular shadow, but it's flat, not
spherical."
Cotex stared into space for a long moment, while Joe waited with suppressed excitement. "You know
something?" Cotex said finally, "all the Bible miracles and our own travels and the shadow on the
moon would make sense if the earth was shaped like a carrot and all the continents were on the flat
end—"
Praise be to Simon's god, Bugs Bunny, Joe thought elatedly. It's happening— he's not only gullible—
he's creative.

There are plenty of reasons to question the dogma of the day, not the least of which is that virtually every governmental agency has a record of deception, fraud and corruption.

It is not illogical, unreasonable nor is it anti-science to question those who control the information no human has access to. In order to "know" for a fact that the Earth is in fact a globe one would have to leave the atmosphere of Earth and see it for themselves. Since only those who work for NASA (and other governmental space agencies) have done so- according to their accounts- and as we have established, their credibility is questionable.

I've been amazed at how much traction Flat Earth has gotten. Seems people really do prefer a lie. Took ages for geocentricity to get traction, and the same year that it did, some jerks started pumping a lot of $$ into the Flat Earth thing. So easy to disprove, any merchant that traveled a few hundred miles north to south would know that the earth wasn't flat. And many did, long before Columbus and Hipparchus.

The whole "telescope/disappearing ship" theme is based on ignorance of how radio (and light) waves refract. Truth be told, there is no telescope powerful enough to see to the limits of the horizon, when you take refraction into account. Too much jitter. So what if you can see 60 miles away, below the curvature of the earth. The light curves too. To see something drop below the horizon, you'd need to focus your telescope on a small point 600 miles away. Good luck with that.

The educated class in Europe during the Age of Christendom all knew that the earth was round. For example, In the very first chapter of his Summa Theologica, 1264 AD, Thomas Aquinas uses the roundness of the earth as an example of proven scientific knowledge.

Problem for me is: EVERYONE now had a phone camera or a tablet camera... there should be gazillions more photos of Sasquatch and UFOs. But there aren't.

OH there are, there are a ton of them. I saw bigfoot all the time when OHammed was in office.

Here, dear friends, here we see the apparent nicety of the anti-syrupers. They want everything to be nice, they want the world to be nice, they want God to be nice. It sounds so harmless, all fluffy bunnies and clouds of whipped cream/
Think! Think dear friends, what such a world as they wish for would entail. Never fearing their own chastisement, every man would dedicate his soul, his efforts, his LIFE, his very life itself, not in the service of God almighty and his family and neighbors! No, a man who does not fear the ultimate maple judgement has no restraints! He will inevitably waste his days in drunken ruts, gambling, drug abuse and orgies! A woman reft of the knowledge of her destiny will end in slatternly whoredom, alone, and unloved!
You do us no service Sir! Preach your capitulation and error elsewhere! We are honest men here, we know to what end we should turn our efforts were all restraint loosed!

Back to Hell with your vile syrupless doctine! Worse than the Applesaucians! Worse than the Jamites! Worse even than the Creamcheesers are the plain pancakers!

The journalist is demonstrating Schrodinger's Opinion in action:

"If an athlete of "color" says something stupid then it is obviously a highly sophisticated troll demonstrating his supreme intelligence. If a white christian makes exactly the same statement he is an dumb ignorant racisss hick and literally Hitler. And racisss."

They are merely suggesting that Earth's geometry can be adequately described by a two-dimensional matrix, that's all. Which may be trivial but not untrue.

I thought it was going to be about 48AA bra size acceptance. (4" leg hair would be an easier sell IMO.)

@69: that might be the case if bigfoot lived in Los Angeles. But consider, for instance, northern Canada. Virtually no people in millions of square kilometers. Most of those people are collected into small communities, so those millions of square kilometers are devoid of people. Cameras on cellphones won't make a difference.

Anonymous Vile Faceless Flat Earth Truther February 19, 2017 1:36 PM  

Up until about a year ago, I thought flat earth truthers were just as ludicrous as 9/11 truthers.

Turns out there is far more behind the current movement than I first thought, and taking a serious look into the pro-Flat Earth arguments is rather convincing when you take the summation of evidence presented in it's totality.

In summation:

The Big Bang Theory originated in the (((zohar))). From the beginning of time, mankind thought the world was flat due to basic observations using the 5 human senses. but the (((kabbalistic))) gnostics had their own agenda.

Which eventually brought us to the medieval disputes between the Church's biblical based geocentric world view and the heretics promoting the heliocentric world view.

The heliocentric world view won the argument back in the day and the lie has stuck ever since.

Why has the lie of heliocentricity, a spinning round ball earth propagated?

Because if (((they))) can get you to believe the biggest absurdities as truth, they can get you to believe in ANYTHING.

Lo and behold, look at were we are today.

If any of you have any inclination whatsoever to see why this "flat earth truther" thing has emerged in 2017, all I say is the best starting place would be here:
