    The posts flat-earthers have made are proof of their obstreperous nescience. They're so transparent.
    .
    Flat-earthism is a dreamlike fantasy, vague and dim, a dreamy place where flat-earthers run to hide from reality, refusing all the while to conform their minds to its objective revelation as known through our senses, a dreamy Shangri-la where nought's had, all's spent where their desire is got without content.
    .
    Flat-earthers abide in a dreamworld of their own imagination, unwilling to commit to any real material model subject to and in conformity with principles or natural laws. Their preference is for a dreamy illusionary world without a physical model and free from the responsibility of observable, testable, empirical physics.

    The fact that by gaining elevation after sunset, you can see the sunset again, means the obstruction of your view was the earth itself.
    .
    The only thing flat-earthers have to fear is sphere itself.
    .
    The Flat Earth Society makes contributions by members from all around the globe.
    .
    Ironically, flat-earthers nonetheless fall short of attaining a global perspective.

  • Observe this, Neil.

    Question for Neil:
    Please demonstrate flat locations on a ball. Also, provide math to prove a sphere has any flat areas.
    Please demonstrate how you can have the above list of ten "flattest places on earth" on a ball.
    Thanks.

    Are you hoping to have an intelligent conversation now that the garbage posts from the resident troll have been evicted, or are you hoping to take his place with more nonsense?
    .
    If you're going to be re-posting his stupid pictures then the latter seems to be your plan.

  • I don't know why I bother. 

    I knew you would not answer, because you cannot.

    Since flat-earthers are so eager to say ships don't disappear over the curvature of the earth at sea because all you need is a telescope to magnify them and then they come back into view, why don't you use the same principle to make the sun come back into view after it APPEARS to set below the curvature of the earth at sunset?
    .
    You won't answer because you don't have one.

    Trying to hide from the challenge, again, eh?
    Where is the video that shows that you can make the sun come back into view by using a telescope after sunset?
    .
    Your claim that you can make the bottom of a ship come back with a telescope means you should be able to do that with the sun too.

    If gravity were "fake" (like flat-earthers keep harping like a broken record) then how do the movements of the moon happen to coincide perfectly with the tides of all the oceans of the world for all of recorded history?
    .
    Just dumb luck?
    .
    Or, is it -- Flat Earth is Complete BALDERDASH! 
    .
    Yeah, that's it!

  • I do not have a lot of God-given talents, but I am very skilled at shredding bad arguments to pieces.  I can see logical flaws miles away and rip them apart in seconds.  Other than that, I have a very poor memory, and not very many talents in other areas.
    .
    Really? 
    .
    So then, show us your stuff and rip this one to pieces:
    .
    “There never was a period of ‘flat earth darkness’ among scholars (regardless of how the public at large may have conceptualized our planet both then and now). Greek knowledge of sphericity never faded, and all major medieval scholars accepted the earth’s roundness as an established fact of cosmology.”6

    .
    Is that so? 
    Then go ahead and rip this apart in seconds -- or take a few hours -- or another week (you've already taken 4 weeks):
    .
    You have posted numerous times that you find flat-earthism "compelling" when a boat that appears to go down beyond the horizon can be brought "back" by zooming in with a telephoto camera lens. 
    .
    Then, by the same principle (if it is true) that camera and zoom lens should be able to make the sun come "back" after it sets.
    .
    Or, if the principle which you find so "compelling" is FALSE then the sun cannot be made to come "back."
    .

    It looks like Ladislaus has lost his touch. He can't manage to shred a bad argument to pieces anymore. Sad.
