    When did I ever say the earth turns 180*? And when did I say the earth is one big island?

    You're just being silly now.

    Ok, so assume the earth IS flat and that there is no mountains or water to get in my way. I can also see very far distances. Now if it were flat, I would be able to see the other end of the earth, because it is flat and nothing gets in the way. But since it is round, I am only able to see a limited distance before the curve of the earth blocks my vi So it MUST be round, because the only way for that to work on a "Flat" earth is well, non-existant

    You obviously haven't read the rest of the thread. This was explained by optics, and in the chatlong between me and anachron, if you'd like to know the answer then you can do some digging :)

    You're also talking about a hypothetical situation which you can neither prove nor disprove.

    No... Well did you NEVER fly over 20k of miles? You should.
    Ìn your reality the world would STOP the air plane and it will never turn back to the world?!

    You're not making sense, can you explain it more clearly? :/

    I never said the earth rotates at all, if that's what you're implying.

    Guess what I beleive? Your a moron!

    And plus, I can see the curve of the earth while on the cruising altitude of a concord flight.

    *believe
    *you're

    Also, grammatically speaking, that should really be, 'That you're a moron!'.

    No, you can't, because concord flights don't exist, and never have done. Maybe you mean Concorde...? (Which, incidentally, no longer flies, so we have no way of verifying it.)

    The world is round because otherwise things would not physically act the way they do in reality. If the world was flat, for example, if you stood at the center, things would not fall down, they would simply implode because the formula to figure out the gravitational force on them would involve dividing by 0, or a VERY tiny decimal... either way, not comfortable.

    We already pointed out that the current conception of gravity doesn't fit in with scientific theory without the introduction of infinite universes or 15 dimensions, and is thus not something to be relied upon.

    Well then that's about it as far as physics goes, but then again, there is always the fact that a satellite cannot travel in a spherical orbit around a disc, and that we have in fact SEEN the earth from space, and it's very spherical :p

    And even in a regular line plane (mostly those travelling accross oceans) one can see this curve. I DID.

    You have no way of first-handily proving that Satellites have been launched into orbit.

    You haven't seen Earth from space, either. What you've been shown is an image that somebody has told you represents Earth from Space.

    Now, don't ask me why, I think you're lying. Unless you're saying you've seen pictures/a video, in which case you haven't personally seen it; you're just quoting second hand information.

    No I've personally seen the earth from outer space and I can confirm that it is actually a square. Now I can't tell you more specifically because if I would I'd have to kill you.

    Once again no proof, you've failed to convince me.

    I've seen no logical argument so far, except one.

    Well, gravity only requires seven dimensions to function. In the theory of general relativity anyways.

    humans and everything they do is flawed, and since Ash his human, and logic is a product of humans, ash is flawed through the transitive property of equality.
