Questions I Would Love to Ask a Flat-Earther
The whole ‘flat-earth’ movement baffles me, it’s like an intellectual regression to the times of stupid.
Of course the world is full of conspiracy theories, and sometimes a hypothesis cannot be proclaimed to be emphatically untrue unless there’s outright evidence to the contrary, but the flat earth movement is beyond me.
If the Earth is flat, how thick is it?
A few miles? A few dozen miles? Surely not more than a hundred?
If it’s flat then it’s far less thick than it is wide, otherwise the earth would be more of a rectangle or a pie-type of shape.
And if it’s flat then drilling down would reach the other side of it, right? Where you could fall into space? Drill and see.
Are all the other planets flat too?
How come the earth’s flat and all the other planets are round?
Do they believe other planets even exist or are they also a conspiracy theory?
We live in an age where your average joe can buy a telescope powerful enough to gaze into the heavens and actually see the other planets. Are they round or flat?
Why is the sun round if the Earth is flat? What about the moon?
There’s no denying the sun’s round. You can see it. Also the moon.
Shouldn’t they both also be flat if the Earth is flat? Or is consistency not important?
If the Earth is flat then it must have an edge?
To stop everyone taking the piss out of you, you could sail to the edge of the earth to prove your point, right?
Where the earth ends and you can fall off the edge or see into space? I’ve also heard flat-earther’s believe the edges of earth have ice walls (like the one in Game of Thrones) which are guarded by NASA (the night’s watch). Surely taking a photo of this would give your theory some credence?
The flat earth society’s pretty big now, there must be some amongst their ranks who are quite well-off, or they can pool some resources together to charter a boat to prove it once and for all.
Take some photos of the edge of the Earth or the ice wall so we can all see. Or are you afraid of the whitewalkers on the other side?
Why not go into space to see if it’s flat?
Again, the flat earth society is pretty big now, they must be able to pool their resources together. Maybe one of their ranks could obtain the necessary qualifications and infiltrate NASA.
Go up as an astronaut and prove the point once and for all. Take a video of the flat earth and show everyone.
Show us all that every single image of the earth as round is completely false and enlighten the human race.
Vehemently saying the earth flat is perhaps a way of saying “this is how I personally experience a thing so therefore it must be true.”
It’s like an ant sitting on the surface of a hot air balloon. It’ll see its immediate environment as flat because it’s tiny compared to the curve of the balloon. Like how we can’t see the curvature of the earth. Go far up enough into the air though and curve will soon become visible.
Thank you for reading, I greatly appreciate it, given I’m mostly just ranting.
