He didn't do the rocket rides to prove flat earth. He did it for fame. Flat earthers paid for the side of his rocket to have flat earth on the side of it. As sponsorship like a NASCAR. Even he knows you wouldnt be able to see the curvature of the spherical earth from a home made rocket. Balloons have been up to 122000 feet with a camera that didn't have a fish eye lens and there was no curve to see at that elevation. Even Neil Tyson said you can't see the curvature from the red bull jump. And that the curvature they shown from the red bull jump was due to the fish eye lens camera.

Flat Earth These are not beliefs like the Globe of Believers, because these are obvious and visible empirical observations as our senses and sensations of the flat and even leveled horizon and the properties of water, which is always on one level, which water always looks for its lowest point and always finds its equilibrium level, which level always stays in one common straight line, regardless of the number of docked, attached vessels in which it is located, and no matter which of the openings of the attached vessels we pour the water, water always takes the form of vessels in which it is and always it fits in one common equal level, in one common horizontal equal and flat line as well We, Flat Earthers, We don't believe, we see it with our eyes, we feel it with our senses, we anexplored and we pass our own tests and experiments by scientific method. People who have joined the Flat Earth do not believe that the water rotates at 1.666 km / h at the equator of the Globe The sphere, which water on the same level is on a par with the land surface, and that water along this equator negating the centrifugal rotational forces and that this water remains always on par with the land and that the same water is only centered, only tuned with every change in speed at any width and at any parallel, where the speed decreases to 0 km / h at the poles of this sphere, increasing to 1,666km / h at the equator? People who have joined the Flat Earth do not believe in different speeds of the sphere from 0km / h in half-times to 1,666 km / h in the equator, because do not feel any change in the different speeds in the sphere. People who have joined the Flat Earth do not believe that the Earth is moving or rotating because they do not feel any movement, nor do they feel any axial rotation, nor do they change the speed from 0 kilometers per hour at the poles to change to 1.666 km / h at the equator of this absurdly ridiculous Catholic-church evolutionary religion of Catholic Bishop Copernicus. People who have joined the Flat Earth do not believe that the Earth is Flat because these people know that the Earth is Flat. This is the Axiom. It makes a huge difference to know one thing because seeing it is obvious, empirical, and feeling what is in front of you, and it is quite different when you believe in a thing, such as in a geometric curved horizon that a horizon not only needs to be precise a certain geometric edge, precisely fixed. a non-changing geometric edge of a ball, a sphere with a fixed fixed radius of 3959 miles, which a geometric edge must make to block and hide objects along that specified fixed geometric horizon at a specified distance of that geometric sphere by 8 inches squared, but at the same time, both distant ends on opposite sides of the horizon line, which is a thousand-mile line that clearly looks like a flat leveling line on the horizon, should have a noticeable drop in elevation from these two o far beyond the horizon, but no distortion, no elevation of the elevation at the two opposite ends of the horizon is visible and evident, and therefore people joining Flat Earth do not believe that they live on a highly rotating, pressure-breathing sphere in the heavenly open vacuum that destroys the second law of thermodynamics or the so-called natural law of entropy in a common system. You can’t refract the horizon above the horizon and we only have one horizon, which horizon represents a visible and apparently changing horizontal line, which line seemingly meets and merges in one common line with the earth's surface, which distance to the horizon can never be measured, because this distance to the horizon is always changing according to seasonal meteorological and optical conditions, different atmospheric densities, humidity, smoke, smog and particulates and this non-fixed horizon always changes from the location of the observer! The geometric sphere needs a well-defined fixed geometric horizon, with a geometric edge, a geometric edge, which edge should hide the horizon at a certain fixed distance of 5040 meters from the observer according to a curvature calculator of a sphere with a radius of 3959 miles, which at present modern optical devices and newly emerging modern telescopes, if we are to be honest and correct, this geometric fixed horizon, which is inevitably necessary for us to live in a sphere, is empirically and visibly disproved and destroyed totally that we live on sphere. This proves that true knowledge is not only in the hands of well-defined Scholars, White-apron Pseudo-Scientists with special training and a special Laboratory Law paper, and necessarily with a diploma from a specific higher education from specific state universities. This proves that true knowledge is in the hands of every person who is not lazy, who is not , slothful, idle, indolent, sleepy and genuinely wants to learn, to explore things, to study everything again, to accept new and new knowledge without being affected from his prejudices and preconception, which he acquired in his childhood years in school.

@Beta A better question is:"Why doesn't earth collapse under it's own mass, if it's traveling faster than the speed of light?" Something with even the slightest amount of mass can collapse under it when it's traveling at the speed of light. That's why we will never be able to build a spaceship that can go as fast as the speed of light. It's just plain impossible.

They say that the "flat earth" flies upwards with great speed so that it gives the illusion of gravity. But that's stupid also, since you'd have to be going much faster than the speed of light in order to do that.

I salute this man. He is truly a flat earther that deserves respect. 99% of us only know the Earth is round because that's what they told you and it makes sense. So we don't bother finding out ourselves. I can imagine for stubborn people like him it would take something like this to convince him. I hope he has the courage to admit he was wrong all these years after he comes back.

Here's how a flat earth conversation would go if we substituted flat earth with your first name. I walk up to you and ask you your name. You tell me it's Dan. I tell you it's Frank. Then you pull out your wallet and show me your drivers license that has your pic and name. i tell you that drivers licenses can be fakes, thus you have a fake drivers license. We go through the same exercise with your birth certificate. Then you bring a friend and that person tells me you actually are Dan and not Frank. I just tell you, that person is a paid shill. Then you bring a family member, a photo album and video of the two of you together over various times in your life. I tell you that the pics are photo shopped and the videos are CGI. As you can see, all of your "proofs" are considered fake to me because I want to believe you are Frank. There's no winning the argument because I will just keep asking you for more proofs and then reject them as fake every time you bring them. In the end, you walk away and I win.
