    The Flat Earth International Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina, attracted hundreds of attendees who believe the shape of the Earth is a disc instead of a sphere.

Ok lets believe earth is flat cause you peole havent seen it.but you may have seen flights. Lets take an example how distance of japan and usa flight route which are placed at the ends of flat earth is shorter than between turkey and usa in which turkey is in the center of earth.if the arth was flat how is it possible for a flight to travel less from end to end of earth ,do flights teleport to travel

If the earth is really flat then try drilling a hole throughout the earth if your brave enough. Option 2: Drive a boat all around earth until you “fall off”. Option 3: Go to space and see for your self that earth *IS NOT* flat.

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.

Flat Earth belief feeds on ignorance and also stupidity. In any case, just the top off my head I can remember 3 sure ways to prove that Earth is what astronomers say it is: a) Measure the angle between your horizontal and the straight line between you and your celestial pole, North or South. This angle IS ALWAYS EQUAL TO YOUR LATITUDE. For ex. 33 degree for Dallas, TX. and 41 degree for NYC. That can be made on ANY point on the surface of the Earth and this is proof enough because the entire model was established on the model of a spinning spherical Earth. b) In October 1957 the Soviet Union launched to space the first artificial satellite ever. The Sputnik had aboard a small radio transmitter that could send a radio signal which could be heard as a bip ("bip...bip...bip...) on any radio receiver tuned to a given frequency along its path. So all what people had to do was to open a receiver to that frequency and at the time the Russians had said the Sputnik was passing overhead they could hear the bip coming stronger and then disappearing. As there was no way that the Russians could have faked such an event at the time this proves the Sputnik was orbiting a spherical Earth. c) Everyone who has been in both hemispheres, North and South, knows that the starts turn around the two corresponding celestial poles. In the south they turn clockwise while in the North they turn counterclockwise. There is absolutely no Flat earth model that could fit this VERIFIABLE FACT, OPEN TO EVERYONE,S EYES while it fits perfectly with Modern Astronomy.
