    Haven't you ever seen the light travel across the glass screen when you're making copies?

    They believe it works more like a spotlight.



    But how do they explain the fact that if the Earth was flat you should still be able to see the Sun when it is on the other side of the world? How does the sun set on a flat earth?

    There's a guy I work with who thinks the earth is flat because of the Bible verse about the pillars of the earth. Nice enough guy. He's just wrong on this one.

    It was mind control or a hallucination or a clever hoax done with video projections and the like.

    Seems like if they really wanted to know they would try to sail around Antarctica. The distance around it would be a lot greater on a flat earth than on a globe. And you could also reach Antarctica by sailing straight west from California according to their map:



    But nothing will convince them. they will always come up with some explanation.

    I only know one. Also, one of my bosses thinks the moon landing was a hoax, if that counts.
