Do you believe the earth is flat or round?

These people debate that the earth is actually flat and not ellipsoid like the rest of the world believes.

Wow. http://theflatearthsociety.org/forum...p?topic=1324.0

Read the questions and answers linked here. They are very detailed . Here's a quick preview:

Quote:
Q: "Why do the all the world Governments say the Earth is round?"

A: It's a conspiracy

Q: "What about NASA? Don't they have photos to prove that the Earth is round?"

A: NASA is part of the conspiracy too. The photos are faked.

Q: "Why has no-one taken a photo of the Earth that proves it is flat?"

A: The government prevents people from getting close enough to the Ice Wall to take a picture.

Q: "How did NASA create these images with the computer technology available at the time?"

A: Since NASA did not send rockets into space, they instead spent the money on developing advanced computers and imaging software instead

Haha yeah, but some of the other questions are very detailed when being explained mathematically as well though.

I keep trying to read more, but then I get to stuff like this and I can't go on:

Quote:
Q: "Why are other celestial bodies round but not the Earth?"

A: When you look at these celestial bodies, even with a telescope, they're entirely two-dimensional.

Q: "What about satellites? How do they orbit the Earth?"

A1: They don't, satellite signals come from radio towers.

Q: "What's underneath the Earth?" aka "What's on the bottom?" aka "What's on the other side?"

A: This is unknown. Some believe it to be just rocks, others believe the Earth rests on the back of four elephants and a turtle.

Yes!!! So fear flying directly west or you fall off the earth!! And you will continue to fly through space at the current velocity the earth was traveling when you fell off. The earth will continue to move forward at 1G producing a falling away effect......We are all screwed.
