Columbus once said that he knew the Earth was round because he was observing a ship sailing and suddenly, far in the distance, it started to disappear (as if being vertically swallowed) until it disappeared completely

easy

Because if you show all the evidence for a flat earth, it outweighs any evidence for a global earth. Examples for flat earth:

No curvature on the earth. Light houses can be seen from 40-50 miles away at sea and there is NO curvature.

the horizon:

The horizon always rises to the eye level of the observer as altitude is gained, so you never have to look down to see it. If Earth were in fact a globe, no matter how large, as you ascended the horizon would stay fixed and the observer / camera would have to tilt looking down further and further to see it.

What are your thoughts on the Time Cube guy? Here's his website:

www.timecube.com

Dang it - it looks like Gene Ray didn't pay his website hosting bill. His site appears for a brief second, then gets swallowed up by a Search site. Any way, here is the wikipedia entry for good ol' Gene Ray and his site. I really want to know what you think about the awesomeness that is TheTime Cube:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Cube

Time Cube is a website created in 1997[2] by Gene Ray, also known as Otis Eugene Ray. On the site, he sets out his personal model of reality, which he calls "Time Cube".[3] He suggests that all of modern physics is wrong,[3] and his Time Cube model proposes that each day is really four separate days occurring simultaneously

On the site, Ray uses language ranging from the formal to the abusive (including insults and racial generalizations) and non-sequitur lines such as "Belly-Button Logic© Works. When Does Teenager Die? Adults Eat Teenagers Alive, No Record Of Their Death." The narrative weaves in and out of his metaphysical ideas with numerous unique digressions. Throughout the text, Ray refers to himself as being godlike with a superior intelligence, claiming the existence of absolute evidence and proof behind his views. Some[who?] have claimed it is futile to analyze the text rationally, locate meaningful proofs in the text, or verify any evidence.[5] Academia has mostly ignored Ray's claims.

The website mostly consists of text which is formatted in centered, multi-colored, variously-sized type in a single vertical column.[3] The following quotation from the website illustrates a recurring theme from Gene Ray's ideas:

When the Sun shines upon Earth, 2 – major Time points are created on opposite sides of Earth – known as Midday and Midnight. Where the 2 major Time forces join, synergy creates 2 new minor Time points we recognize as Sunup and Sundown.

The 4-equidistant Time points can be considered as Time Square imprinted upon the circle of Earth. In a single rotation of the Earth sphere, each Time corner point rotates through the other 3-corner Time points, thus creating 16 corners, 96 hours and 4-simultaneous 24-hour Days within a single rotation of Earth – equated to a Higher Order of Life Time Cube.

No, it doesn't, because there is zero evidence for a flat earth, because it isn't. mad

Hey loudmouth, shut the fuck up, right?

I don't know, Funkcreep is starting to make a convincing case. If he can somehow tie in Flat Earth with The Time Cube, the game might be over.

You call the light house example zero evidence? Let me guess, if the light house was out of sight due to the curvature of the earth, then you would be using that as proof for a global earth but since I'm using it to show there is NO curvature on the earth, you ignore it

I don't remember the US Navy crossing the Atlantic and Indian oceans to get to the Pacific during WWII to fight the Japanese Empire

why? because the Earth is round and they just crossed the Pacific rolleyes

And vice versa! The Japanese would have had to sail completely across a flat earth to get to Pearl Harbor. No way! They would have run out of gas somewhere around the tip of Africa, if my calculations are correct.

yeah, and why would the US bother with Hawaii if it's a tiny island on the other side of the flat world? lol

If anyone flies from Japan to Hawaii (or vice versa) then on a flat earth, that trip would have to take about 2 days, with several stops for refueling. Because obviously you are traveling from one end of Flat Earth all the way to the other end. But all the flights from Tokyo to Honolulu are non-stop!

So that means that somehow we have planes that can fly from one end of Flat Earth to the other without needing to refuel! That's 14,417 miles according to my calculations. Plus, they have to be going almost 2,000 miles an hour to cover the 14,417 miles between Honolulu and Tokyo in the 8 hours the airlines say they can:

Hmmm, maybe Funkcreep is wrong. How will he explain these aviation anomalies?

JT, I believe your mention of the US-to-Japan example has provided the logic and irrefutable facts needed to disprove this entire, sordid Flat Earth theory. highfive

Ok, Funkcreep - JT and I have now set your fears at ease and proven the world is round. Is there any other problem you'd like solved? We are here to serve!

It's now moot, since JT and I have shown how a Flat Earth is impossible.

Next!

If the Earth is flat, and there is no such thing as gravity, what keeps the stuff on the bottom of the Earth from falling off?

More proof of a flat earth:

If the Earth were truly constantly spinning Eastwards at over 1000mph, helicopters and hot-air balloons should be able to simply hover over the surface of the Earth and wait for their destinations to come to them!

Not sure about that..but this video will show you that the sun is NOT 93 mllion miles away and really only about 3500 miles away. He uses trigonometry to prove it:

Moot, already solved. The atmosphere spins too. It's like when a fly is trapped inside a car. It can fly around and yet not smash against the back window. This is because the air inside the car is moving at the same speed as the car. The atmosphere in which the helicopter is suspended is moving at the same speed as the ground beneath it. Therefore, the helicopter will hover and remain in the same space relative to the ground beneath it.

Now, really - JoeTyler and I have solved this riddle. Give us something else to solve. Something difficult, like: What do women want? That is MUCH harder to solve than "Is the Earth round or flat?" biggrin

Still more proof of a flat earth:

If Earth and its atmosphere were constantly spinning eastwards over 1000mph, then the average commercial airliner traveling 500mph should never be able to reach its Eastward destinations before they come speeding up from behind! Likewise Westward destinations should be arrived at thrice the speed, but this is not the case.

Same answer as above. Move on! Ask me something hard!

Ok. Let me get this straight. This is priceless.

Flat earth is evidence of God.
Atheists are hiding the proof of a flat earth.
Therefore atheists....know there's proof for God.
Therefore they know there's a God.
Therefore they're....not atheists.
Therefore they are theists.
Therefore the global earth hoax is a theiest conspiracy.

How's it possible the flat earthers hadn't thought that one through.
If the milk turns out to be sour, I aint the kinda pussy to drink it!
