So, which direction did Jesus rise?  The globe is a contradiction and denies all truth. 


So here we bring in the theology of Christ's ascention and heaven to support a flat earth. It restricts God to a flat-earth theology and heaven to a place that has to be above the earth.


Heaven is, de fide, above the earth and hell is below it. That is binding under pain of mortal sin. Heaven is not "out" in all directions at 360 degrees. Get it right.

These FlatTards use deceit to claim the Bible teaches the "earth is flat." The Bible never mentions the word "flat" to describe shape of the earth.

The word "flat" is a very simple word and concept to describe an object. Surely, the word existed in the Hebrew and Koine Greek language, so why didn't the Bible writers use it to describe the shape of the earth?

These FlatTards are saying Our Lady of La Salette is wrong.  She can't be wrong.

Regarding Our Lady's warning about earthquakes to come, she say's "the EARTH's GLOBE will have convulsions and earthquakes." It makes absolutely no sense for FlatTards to refer to the sky (which is a "globe" according to them) as having earthquakes when, according to their "flat earth" theory, these "half globes" represent the sky above the earth and the domain, which consists of water or dust, below the earth's land mass and navigable waters, respectively.

In other words, these FlatTards are saying there will be earthquakes in the sky according to Our Lady. This is preposterous.

Our Lady is referring to the earth that we can see and upon that we physically live. It will have convulsions and earthquakes. She calls this land mass "the earth's globe".

These FlatTards are deceitful and they lack reading comprehension problem. They lack understanding of what Our Lady is stating, and they willfully reject it after it's explained to them. 


As I said about the Immaculate Conception, the actual words are not necessarily in the Bible but you have to read and pray about what you read in order to understand. As Christ taught:

10And his disciples came and said to him: Why speakest thou to them in parables? 11Who answered and said to them: Because to you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven: but to them it is not given. 12For he that hath, to him shall be given, and he shall abound: but he that hath not, from him shall be taken away that also which he hath. 13Therefore do I speak to them in parables: because seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
Flattards?
The name calling here is proof in and of itself that this guy is not only insecure, but knows he's wrong. “When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.”           
--Socrates

I have a question for the flat earthers. I have been thinking about this and it still does not make sense to me. Flat earthers say that when ships or islands or mountains or anything else appears to sink below the horizon it is only an illusion and if you look with a telescope the object can be seen. But does it work the same way with the sun? When the sun seems to sink below the horizon is it also an illusion and if you look for the sun with a telescope, can you see the sun like they say you can see the boats and islands and mountains when they sink below the horizon?



The sun is subject to perspective issues as anything on the ground.  However, the perspective itself does change.  The sun leaves plenty of evidence it moves over a flat earth when it leaves a trail of light on the ocean from the shore at sunset which is traceable back to the sun, something impossible if earth were a globe because light doesn't bend.
