*NOTE* the following is a rough draft for a Family-Hour Skit you can do in your own home when you have overly-active-youthful-energy-types running wild, hopefully out of doors, since it's now officially summer time -- BUT TOMORROW IS THE FOURTH and no doubt there will be a vast demand for fun BBQ-in-the-park activities for the maddeningly energetic young people we have these days since spending so much time behind a computer screen most days makes for a great urge to burn off some of that hormones -- I mean, steam...TLDR...

My ship never sailed off the edge!

We never even had to adjust course to avoid it (the edge).

None of the other sailors I’ve met have any stories of this either, and believe me...

...BELIEVE YOU ME, thousands of sailors would have tens of thousands of stories about it (Okay, for flattards, that means soldiers with an average of 10 stories each multiplied by a thousand soldiers answers in soldiers SQUARED stories when you keep track of units).

You couldn’t keep a secret like that for long.

The Default Seafaring Battle Tactic would be to drive someone else’s ship off the edge of the earth if you were anywheres near it!

The internet would be clogged with pictures of the edge where another continent is supposed to be, trash would be falling off the edge instead of floating around until it stinks - I mean sinks, people would be getting viking funerals in which their barge is set on fire and sent off the edge (that would be a lot of the pictures, I think), murders would be committed by sending people off the edge, hijacked planes would be flown past the edge if they were near it-this could go on forever ("Which, come to think of it, ain't such a bad idear, since the Chapter is next week all ready," said Bishop F.).

The point is, people are quick to proactively benefit from any guaranteed way of disposing of something they don’t want, and it’s hard to keep them quiet when something like that exists!

Besides that, there are orbiting satellites, airplanes, Physics, and other things I can directly observe to tell me it’s round.

Also my husband is a scientist and he laughs (like this: HE-HE--HA-HA--HO-HO) at the idea that you can convince thousands of people, who disprove each other’s work for a living, to all lie in unison (Now, for our next Exercise in Applied Linguistics, we'll all rehearse saying that entire sentence, Without the Laugh, in one breath. Then twice in one breath. Then, Adding the Laugh... *OUCH*!* WHY'D YOU HIT ME ON THE HAID LIKE THAT?).

    You're getting your character mixed up with Meg, happenby! But that's okay, good writers can separate the two and even use the fact that you're merging roles, to add depth to the already-so-shallow characters that you could end up being if portrayed that way on stage, however, you would be far too noble to ever complain about being misrepresented by the script, would you?

    Yes, Fathers definitely did believe earth is flat, and Scripture describes a flat earth, and quite specifically not a globe, but Sungenis and Delano either don't know about the Fathers, or they aren't dealing with the Fathers.  And their objection to Scripture is incredibly weak.  Sungenis says that the firmament might be flexible or airy.  Well, his head is flexible and airy because the Father's teach that the firmament is not only a hard, impassable structure, but that there is water above it, not space.  Any reference to the air being the firmament includes the actual firmament but describes the air along with the firmament as things above us.  And what about the water above the firmament?  Sungenis actually suggests that it is out in space somewhere.    Augustine actually speculated about the water passing over/past the stars to get to the earth and because he couldn't account for how that worked, yet he admitted that it must be so because Scripture said it.  No surprise the people of today would rather believe unsubstantiated, highly questionable, pagan science than believe what God says--like St. Augustine.  The pagan model is patently guilty of twisting of truth and has less credibility than anything the Holy Spirit inspired, so without proof of their model, why do people choose to believe it?  Romans 3:4  Let God be true and every man a liar. As it is written: “So that You may be justified in Your words, and prevail in Your judgments.”

    Furthermore,
    Many thanks to happenby for providing fruitful material that young aspiring writers can use to compose skits their family can enjoy all polished up and ready for the Family Theater Night which is something great to do, in like, your backyard or a park while the sun is going down over the horizon of the spheroid earth and no telescope can zoom in and make it come "back" which would be a wonderful scene to have for anyone with a Celestron telescope or whatever it makes a great prop for the Family Fun Theater Hour before fireworks tomorrow.

    Or, this thread is perhaps all about how Smugley the introvert passes judgment on others he's never met.
    Just like the thread title says, "Why don't you believe the Earth is flat? Think about how to insult people you disagree with!"
    No, sorry, that's not the title, is it? It invites everyone to practice their most malicious ad hominems, doesn't it?
    Thereby demonstrating how vastly superior flat-earthers are at common decency and good manners................

    Some families are having 4th of July parties this weekend since they couldn't stay up Wednesday evening.
    .
    There's still time! Children have a lot of fun with home theater. 
    .
    Writing the scripts stretches their wings in composition so by the time they take it in school, it's just a REVIEW. Instant "A."

    Again this shows a lack of consideration for the Fathers and Scripture and favors the pagan version without discernment.

    One would expect more from a woman who pretends to be Catholic. 
    Because Catholic women ought to be concerned with protecting our children from corruption.
    They ought to be aware that teaching children nonsense (such as stupid flat-earthism) is actually scandalizing them.
    Any Catholics ought to know what Our Lord said about scandalizing children.
    When you teach children stupid false ideas like flattardom, you set them up for ridicule at best.
    At worst you drive them away from the Faith because they'll grow up to think everything you claimed to believe was nonsense.
    .
    Flat-earthers should not be allowed to procreate. They're a menace to society.

    We're coming up on more holidays when having a family skit could be a lot of fun.
    .
    Labor Day weekend, first Monday in September, this year Sept. 3rd, 2018.
    .
    While Dad is having fun with the barbecue the kids could set up a stage to do their play on Samuel Rowbotham's hoax.
    That would be fun!  A scale model of the canal, bridge and boat could be made with a rain gutter with water in it.
    .
    Feast of All Saints, Thursday, November 1st, 2018
    .
    Some Catholic families dress the children up as saints and do some kind of fun activity.
    Something in lieu of Halloween lets them enjoy dressing in appropriate costumes and having positive fun instead of demon nonsense.
    It's a sad thing to see a young girl cry because she doesn't want to dress up as a witch.
    If you have really creative children you could encourage them to have a flat-earth vs globe-earth debate between saints of the Church!
