    Someone specialized in astrophysics is not competent to help third world countries.

    I personally believe in science.
    I have not read all the rants before because when it doesn't come from an appointed physicist or published, scientific rant usually make me laugh to death. I just notice I've read the words "down" and "up" which, on a cosmic scale, don't mean anything.

    No, in gravity theory, it is the mass of the earth, as opposed to the space vacuum, and its inside composition that makes any approaching object attracted to its core, thus orbital attraction and gravity. A flat earth could not exist in a complete vacuum. This beach ball idea is pretty hilarious actually :D

    I won't consider the "all science is wrong/technology is evil" point because there is no possible comparison so it's null to my eyes. Go tell Prometheus what you think of his gift.
    And so are the last points which are pretty funny and makes me re-consider your seriousness.

    I don't see why this thread needs to be closed.

    You don't necessarily have to believe or agree with what the thread starter said(I personally disagree with most of his claims/beliefs), but he's posting it here for a discussion.

    No Need. He is just joking (of course).

    Ash answer these
    How do you define evil?

    Evidence of that? Also what is socialist?

    Round oppression?

    Well How? Seriously I am not joking. I did not get what he said. Blame my English if you like but it was the truth that I did not get what he was saying.

    Damn straight. No more catching hairs in zippers!

    ---------------------------

    Ash, what about the Earths shadow? When the moon passes through it's shadow (lunar eclipse), we see that it is round, and only spherical objects have a round shadow.

    What about seasons, and day and night? How can it be night in Asia, while it's daytime in America?

    Omg guys you didn't get it. Never heared about guys that flew about the whole planet just to make a world trip? And its quite dumb to think about it any longer. Whoever said you that the world is flat have just stolen your brain. Its a waste of time. Really. Go and continue living.

    I've been visiting someone in hospital today, sorry for the late reply!

    That is just differentials in optics. I don't suppose you've ever looked above a heated object (a warm road, fire, etc) and seen the air go blury? It's the same principle with your ship argument.
    Joking? Surely not. I am a true FEZer, through and through. I define evil as being Morally Objectionable, your evidence is here (although admittedly it is only one part of the evil fluoride scheme) and 'Roundies' is what Flat Earthers refer to people who falsely believe the Earth is round.

    I've already explained this to you several times, gravity pulls you towards the centre, thus as you get further away you get moved back towards the middle. That is why it's impossible for you to 'drive' off the edge and even reach it.
    To understand seasons, I'll point you to a diagram. As for the 'day and night', the Sun and Moon basically act as Spotlights. To answer your next question; the Sun shines light in all directions, but on Earth the atmosphere limits the amount of the surface that is illuminated by the sun. It's a spotlight effect; I don't believe the sun is literally a spotlight in any way but it seems that way to us.

    But then you will never turn 180° degrees to fly again back to middle to come back to the human 'Island' as you think the world is.

    Its quite simple... The world is an egg. ....
