No, not 'low earth orbit', just high altitude.

Indeed. A little sloppy on my terminology today...

Chuck Yeager reported being able to see the curvature of the earth at ~100K'. He's still around to confirm his observation.

It says...

"Pope Innocent III, leader of the Catholic Church in England believed the Earth was flat... While Adolf Hitler, genocidal Nazi leader who ordered the deaths of millions, believed it was round... Who would you rather believe?"

I've seen some pathetic arguments in my time... Looks like we have a new champion.

No no not pathetic at all...of course there are only two peoples views I should consider...this Pope guy or Hitler. The wording of this very convincing argument leads me to conclude it would be better to believe this Pope fellow so...that's me convinced. I'm now off to tell everyone I know my new discovery, the earth is indeed flat because there is no way I'm going to believe the same things as genocidal maniac. Even if he is right about this.

RE: Flat Earth Society
All these points have been mentioned to them repeatedly in the past and they come up with all kind of extremely convoluted explanations. Normally they fall back on the whole conspiracy angle. This would include Chuck Yeager.

I did visit the site briefly once and saw someone who posted his own photos of a sailing ship going over the horizon. They still argued about it. I can't remember how.

Hubby read this thread and told me that the flat-earth society's explanation for ships disappearing over the horizon is bendy light.

No
Perhaps its a sign that Evolution has some dead ends.

Dreams/Hallucinations/delusions are not evidence
Wishful thinking is not evidence
Disproved statements&Illogical conclusions are not evidence
Logical fallacies&Unsubstantiated claims are not evidence
Vague prophecies is not evidence
Data that requires a certain belief is not evidence

Of course... How silly of me.

Round earth.... Just pure evil.

RE: Flat Earth Society
Why are you so annoyed with the Flat Earth Society ?

ITS JUST A THEORY !


Happens to be wrong, but I don't need to state the blinding obvious.

What do the flat Earth Society think of flight MH370 ?
Did it fall off the edge after it ran out of fuel and hence cannot be found ?

Don't tell CNN that, they'll be interviewing Flat-Earthers and asking them for their opinion, right after they're done with their hours long interview with psychics and mediums because this shit is totally legit. Facepalm
