    Gravity is part of the con. They have thoroughly cherry-picked which parts of science they wish to believe in. Honestly, if you have a question then they have a way around it.

    As I said before, you cannot apply logic to this situation.

    I don't understand what he's actually trying to achieve in his rocket. Anyone know? If he's going up just to have a look at how round the earth is, great - it's round. If not, I don't get it...

    The earth is a flat disc, hence the curved edge...

    So high above the UK you could get a telescope out and see Australia, right? :p

    Don't be ridiculous. Australia is on the underside of the disc :p

    Nope, everything is within the ice wall.

    The same reason similar groups believe the Earth is only 6000 years old.

    And on the back of a giant sea turtle.

    I have no issue with flat earthers, creationists and CT nuts (a venn diagram would see many of them where the circles converge :p). In fact, the more outrageous the claims they make the better

    You see the latest video (I think it's the latest) where he's on track and the monstrosity catches fire - again? The dejected delivery of the "Oh no, not again" line as fire once again tries to remove the aberration from history is classic. :D

    I know one of these people on another forum, i kept asking him why are there no photos of such walls. Apparently the answer is that there is some military guarding it and shoots anyone that gets near.

    Weird, if the earth is flat, you don't need to get near to see it.

    Bunch of crazies.

    Take them to the coast, put them on a boat and set to sail it away from shore. Tell them to keep looking back at the land as it disappears over the horizon. Now you've taught a flat earther that the earth is spherical and simultaneously set them adrift at sea. Win-win

    The idea is more like a rotation so centripetal force causes a gravitational-like effect, much like the space ship in 2001

    Doesn't change how wacky it is though

    I figured whilst it is 'flat', it's out like a sheet of mdf, it still has a dome like covering where there is a 'horizon' per se

    Either way, it's always 'you should be proving me wrong, not me proving I'm right' in their arguments

    utterly insane, who's paying these guys, and why would they bother defending an ice wall to nowhere?

    yeah, that's what i'm meaning in the last bit of my post- what are we spinning around and if gravity isn't real what's attaching us to it?
