    Or you are imparting your own emotional response into my words.

    You said "flat earth movement" which means there are those who think that the earth is a sphere is some kind of conspiracy. How else would you word it?

    My next question to you would be, have you ever flown anywhere, ever? Ever look at the horizon as you approach a land mass? You don't see it...then you have a sliver of land...then it becomes a larger piece of land as it rises into the horizon. This isn't possible with a "flat earth" theory. And secondly, if the sun, moon, all the planets in our own solar system, and stars in the galaxy are round (as can be verified by anyone with a telescope)....why would the Earth be flat?

    You are right, The flat earth movement does qualify as a conspiracy theory. I am trying to see if anyone will discuss it in a manner that is not argumentative.

    Edit: You modified your post as I was quoting yours and it deleted the quotes when I submitted on your original post previous to this one

    Okay

    Let me watch some ISS videos and then I will come back here. It sounds like these videos show enough data to verify the earth's spherical proportions.

    Okay

    Whatever I changed, I changed it because I felt that I was not making my point. I am only responding to you because I am seeing that your focus is only on me but you are not talking about the topic at all. I promise I am not looking for your approval at all.

    I enjoy a good discussion, so long as facts and not "theories" are brought in.

    See what I did there...

    However, before you respond....be very clear, that it is not your approval that I seek.

    It's times like this that I wish I still smoked. I'd have a nice long smoke session and then see if there were any way possible I could relate. Then I'd laugh hysterically at the shear lunacy of it. And repeat...


    FYI - Flights closer to the poles follow an arc exactly because the earth is round. It make for a shorter flight.
