What about timezones? Or seasonal change?

Also we didn't develop high-level photograph-editing software until the 80's and 90's, so previous photos of the round Earth FROM THE MOON no less, would be completely unedited
Furthermore; "Oh but they COULD have been edited undigitally"
Even still, we have live footage of it all, which (during the time) had a 0% chance of being edited when it was live.

That comment was directed at one person, then I went to explain the reason why I made the thread and what I am seeing.

You seem to have come in here with no intention of changing your perspective. Looking at the things you say, you seem to be under the impression that you are some kind of enlightened master of science, and that the rest of us are idiot heathens to be "tantalized" with hints of knowledge we had not previously dreamed of. You have never even considered changing your own views, here, and whenever somebody identifies a part of your argument that is objectively false ("Newton never saw ice float," for instance), you move the goalposts or just outright-refuse to acknowledge it. You remind me of several particularly fervent creationists I've spoken to in the past.

I've spent basically half my life arguing with people on the internet. If there's one thing I've learned from that, it's that arguing with preachers is rarely productive. It's a lot more fun to tease them.

Kyle seems like the kinda guy that would have believed in the spontaneous generation theory when that was a theory.
Brandon's the name. Golems are my game.

The Illuminati card game makes an excellent Tarot deck and Flat-Earthers like the card suggests are laughed at but when you dig past the crazy, you find a conspiracy cult dedicated to thinking the elites are hiding wealth via deceptive geology. What's intruiging is the detail. The flavor text, the mechanics, you can't for example connect Flat-Earthers to Science Fiction fans or NASA for a united power structure. (NASA makes sense...) but something you could theoretically connect them too...

Which for some reason makes me think of Elon Musk.

The sad truth is that I had a good buddy who is a flat-earther convert. His main source for "proof" are YouTube videos. He also became a meth addict and is recently homeless. We are no longer friends.

So beware the Flat-Earth conspiracy; it's a gateway drug.

Very sorry to hear about that, Aeron. I hope he gets help and finds a way to help fix his problems.

i have had my eyes opened: the earth is neither flat, nor round. it is, in fact, a 3 dimensional geometric shape. i implore you to read an article on the matter, dubbed “time cube”. http://timecube.2enp.com

for real though, the earth is round

Hilo, I hope so too. But I have tried everything and I have given up trying to help him. Part of me really hoped getting kicked out of the apartment building would have been the wake up call he needed to get clean.

Anyway. Off topic. I apologize. Back to topic. If you would like like to talk about this more, feel free to pm me.
