    Flat Earthers Won't Go Away

    I've been seeing this stupid Flat Earth conspiracy theory all over the Internet and more people seem to be buying into this bullshit. It's really good at discrediting the entire Truther movement. Most of the Flat Earthers seem to be Christians too.

    I think it's a bunch of group think idiocy and there's so many holes in the argument it's not funny.

    Everyone's favorite anarchist...




    Thoughts?

    Re: Flat Earthers Won't Go Away

    I've heard it too, as a matter of fact, a couple weeks ago on coast to coast there was a guest who discussed this theory. I enjoy entertaining the notions of stuff that is wayyy out there.

    www.coasttocoastam.com/show/2015/05/21

    In the latter half, professional game tester and proprietary software trainer Mark K. Sargent discussed his breakthrough work on the Enclosed Earth Theory. He outlined clues that point to the idea that Earth is actually a "Truman Show"-type contained system stretching thousands of miles wide, and 400 miles high. His interest in this theory developed out of studying "flat earth" conspiracies, which seemed absurd at first. One source, who said he used to work for NASA, claimed that the space agency knows that Earth isn't really shaped like a globe, Sargent reported.

    Sargent's Enclosed World model differs from 'flat earth' theories in that he envisions a gigantic, but specific enclosure that stretches high enough to include weather systems. The moon and sun are not what we think they are-- they're actually much smaller spheres, like huge light bulbs, that are much closer to us than the distances NASA has suggested, according to the theory. Space missions such as to the moon and Mars could be faked, he added. Sargent also shared data from Admiral Byrd's expeditions to Antarctica-- he did numerous missions there over a 30-year period, and there's possible evidence to suggest he found something that correlates with or reveals the 'Enclosed World' secret.
    Here's his website: http://enclosedworld.com/

    yeah we put a lot of work into it here as well. Mostly under Concave earth. Are things in the sky really really small or far far away?

    I thought it was good for a laugh. There is a YT guy calls himself Christ or something. Can't recall. He has visions that there is a glass ceiling, and there is a pyramid in the sun (?) that beams energy to us. Something like that.

    Would be interesting if it were concave, then we could all wonder about the universe we can't see because it is on the outside and ours is on the inside in the middle. It would mean that we probably couldn't dig a hole to china.

    If you can show me a direct flight from South Africa to Australia that really is nonstop, then I will reevaluate.

    I am still trying to understand how the "Electric Universe" model would work in a Flat Earth system.

    You are probably talking about one of the gubbermint SHILLS who calls himself Lord Steven Christ.

    Not only is he a professional MIS-info agent, he is an anti Christ as well

    yes and delusional, but if he is some kind of agent it would make more sense, his apparent belief in what he says. He is way way out there though compared to others who discuss the subject.

    Don't know any direct flights except maybe to the US from Sydney. Every where else is via Asia or the ME. Like I said, good for a laugh.

    I don't believe in the Big Bang Theory. I think that's been disproven, but the scientific community is clinging onto it since they are afraid to admit they don't know.

    Re: Flat Earthers Won't Go Away

    I wouldn't have heard of this flat earth inquiry trend if not for my routinely browsing Mami's where, if you page back though their recent posts, you'll see a near daily flat earth blog entry. I gather mami's mod "delcroix" is a believer, as he seems to post most of the pro flat earth entries. delcroix also proclaims that nuclear bombs/energy is a big hoax, and I can't recall if he also proclaims that satellites are a hoax, but that is part of the same "everything's fake" crowd's campaigns.

    As one whose first guess is that the Apollo moon landings were faked, and considering how for decades "flat-earthers" has been a systematically engineered meme to ridicule & dismiss those presenting alternative views, similar to the "conspiracy theorists" meme; lets just say I "allow for the possibility" that the flat earth speculation may be... My first impression upon seeing that there's a "flat earther" trend being posted at otherwise truthy internet watering holes, was "uh oh, sunstein cognitive infiltration meant to discredit everyone of our mindset/message!" and that remains my first guess.

    Sofia Smallstorm and "3 friends" evaluate , haven't listened,







    It appears that many are secretly looking into the possibility that we might not actually be on a blue globe doing a yearly orbit in a solar system in the universe. Even speculating that "the earth is flat" is enough to get you labeled absolutely loony, but believe it or not, 2015 is showing itself to be the year of this inquiry! I gather three friends here, two of whom are 99% and 100% convinced that the Globe Theory of the Earth is Wrong, to exchange information and explain what can and cannot be. We all have eyes and we have all lived here for a while now, so why don't you listen and go to some of the links to decide for yourself -- or at least so you can say you've taken a gander at this ridiculous theory!
