    I'm not saying I believe the earth is flat but the only way to really understand what you believe is to question it and try to give competing arguments an open mind. Interestingly I dont think people have really given proof here that it is round, maybe the theory about water in zero g but thats not completely. To argue against it most people try to use other facts they've learnt in school to prove it. But if people have gone as far as to fake a flat earth then they its not a leap that this information is warped to meet that.

    I think the only way to really prove it is to go and look from space and that only proves it to yourself because there will still be plenty who dont believe you. You could try and fly round the earth but you'd have to know flat earthers believe the north pole is the centre of the map and that Antarctica in an impenetrable wall around the edge.

    I don't believe the theories are particularly viable but if it makes you questions and think about what you know its only a good thing.

    I'm not a ancient greek, nor egyptian, nor prehistoric man. We all know about basic scientific facts.

    The earth is flat. At his north edge there is The Wall, at east you can find Mount Doom, at south The outlands. I don't remember at ovest, I'm not so good at geography.
    Beyond all that things there is Jörmungandr.

    Yeah amazing what 2016 has brought
    First we hear people still believe the world is flat.
    Then we find out info that none of us really needed to know about kayne West.
    I wonder what other life changing news I will learn in 2016.

    They new basic scientific fact too. In reality though, all any of you knew is what you are told. Assumption is an enemy of knowledge. Anyway if we ever get space tourism that will put this to bed.

    Video evidence! Right there!
    I've also always wondered what was before the Big Bang, if it is indeed correct.

    Is this thread because of the rap battle between B.O.B and Neil Degrasse Tyson about the flat earth issue?

    I don't mind ppl that think the earth is flat. If anything it just serves to flag ppl not to put into power. It relegates them to manual labor, and arts. Which B.O.B is a singer so there. People with no belief in science and/or their followers, will ultimately be left behind in a modern world. You really don't need to argue with them, just let them wallow in their pool of ignorance.

    Seriously, you don't get too far in life spewing ignorance from your mouth unless you're celebrity. Anyone else... will be holding up a cardboard sign and a cup on the side of the road. I'm not out to save everyone in the world, one less ignorant person to deal with personally, at least in my profession. I don't take any professional advice from my hair stylist, waiter, or my artist cousins, etc. If you take business/financial/political advice from ppl like that... good luck to ya LOL!

    And don't forget all the parallel worlds that Robert Jordan documents in the Wheel of Time.
    Alright, an oblate spheroid tending toward pear shaped, then.

    You talk of ignorance a lot but is it not ignorant to blindly believe the science you have been told and dismiss anything else? Science has both been wrong and lied about many a time.

    Don't know why I've decided to be the defence for something I don't believe but meh, I love the idea of debate rather than dismissal.

    Indeed, and there are some that purposely try to use it to mislead, but it's overall effect has been to push humanity forward.

    I don't see what ppl claiming the world is flat accomplishes. And having crossed the international date line many times and arriving at my destination earlier on the same day than I left my point of origin, watching the sun rise up to noon twice in the same day... Proof is not always visual as in seeing the curvature of the earth with your own eyes, which is what B.O.B demands.

    Also: Razer insider forum is anti debate. There is a hard limit on how many posts per day and even more stringent upon how many posts within a thread you've already posted.
