The 10 Things That All Flat Earthers Say


Hey everyone, so some of you may be aware
of my recent foray into the flat earth community, most notably with this lengthy response to
the Globebusters. For about two months now, the comments section
of that video has been a consistent hot bed of activity, with hundreds of flat earthers
stopping by to share their opinions. Now for people who claim that “globetards”
just repeat what they were told in school, you guys sure do all say the exact same things. And I don’t just mean the same arguments,
I mean the same things word for word, as though it was copied and pasted from some manifesto. This is because you all watch the same ridiculous
youtube videos made by the same handful of con men, and you all quote them verbatim without
applying a shred of critical thinking. So now, after becoming intimately familiar
with your “greatest hits”, I just had to do one more video sharing the ten things
that all flat earthers say. If you’re a regular person and you haven’t
seen my other two flat earth videos, you may want to check those out first for a little
context. But if you are a flat earther yourself then
don’t bother, I’ll be speaking directly to you throughout this video. Let’s begin. Number one. One extremely problematic side effect of taking
the globe and flattening it out into a plane is that gravity makes no sense, and there
is no reason for things to fall to the ground. All objects accelerate towards the ground
at 9.8 meters per second squared. That’s an indisputable fact, and it is also
an indisputable fact that any acceleration requires a force to produce it. This is how cars drive, planes fly, people
walk, cats jump, it’s how literally all motion works. Even charlatans like the globebusters accept
at least this much, which is why they go off on their rants about magnetic magic, as you
may have seen in my previous video. But quite comically, most flat earthers don’t
even do this. Most of you address this problem by simply
listing two words. Density, and buoyancy. Well, I hate to break it to you guys, but
these are not forces. Forces are vectors. They have a magnitude, which means a numerical
amount, and a direction, which means they have to point somewhere. Density is simply mass per unit volume, or
how much matter sits in a particular space. It doesn’t point anywhere. And buoyancy is simply a measurement of an
object’s tendency to float. So allow me to repeat. THESE ARE NOT FORCES. This is trivial to prove. You say that objects fall down because they
are more dense than the air below them. Why down? Why not up? Or sideways? When you let go of a ball, there is air all
around it. How does it know to fall down? Also, objects fall down when they are in a
vacuum, which means there is no air below them. What’s happening there? Face the facts. Things accelerate down towards the ground
because of a downward force. That force is gravity, which pulls everything
towards the center of the earth, which is its center of mass. Denser things displace less dense things because
gravity exists. More mass means a greater gravitational attraction. This is clearly why things that are less dense
than water float on water, again because gravity exists. Rocks are pulled down harder than water, which
is pulled down harder than air. Some of your more popular retorts to this
include wondering how oceans stay on the earth while birds and insects can fly. It’s because birds and insects have wings. They flap them and generate an upward force. If that force exceeds the gravitational force,
they go up. Oceans can’t do this, because oceans don’t
have wings. Individual water molecules can evaporate and
go up into the sky because they are so, so, so tiny. But when they get up to where it is colder
and accumulate into clouds, they eventually condense back into liquid water, and guess
what happens? They fall back down as rain. Hopefully you are familiar with rain. As for planes and other macroscopic objects,
again, they go up only when a force is applied. When you throw a ball up into the sky, the
force imparted on the ball by your arm is greater than the gravitational force, but
as soon as it leaves your hand, no more force is being applied, and only the gravitational
force is acting upon the ball, so that velocity gets smaller and smaller, hits zero, at which
point it starts to fall, and it falls faster and faster until it hits the ground. Gravity. Gravity exists. Period. Saying it is “just a theory” does nothing
but display that you have no idea what a theory is. Stop repeating what you hear on flat earth
videos, and catch up to the 17th century. Number two. Flat earthers all say “I shouldn’t see
this thing, but I do, so the earth is flat.” Then to justify this claim, you all say the
same thing, typically with no context whatsoever. 8 inches per mile squared. None of you have any idea what this means. You can’t derive it. You can’t calculate anything with it. You can’t make a prediction with it. You can’t tell me anything about this value
at all. When I point this out to you, you get very
angry, and instead of answering simple questions, you just link me to a bunch of videos made
by con men. Well I’m sorry friends, those people are
doing incorrect math, or lying, or both, and they are counting on the fact that you won’t
do any math at all to check up on them. 8 inches per mile squared is not a valid way
to measure earth’s curvature. If you understood math, you would immediately
see that this “squared” on miles is totally out of place. That’s because this is a parabolic approximation. This is for doing calculations with a parabola. It’s possible that you remember this shape
from middle school algebra, but I wouldn’t be surprised if you don’t. As you can see, the earth is not shaped like
this. So where does it come from, and why do people
use it? It comes from the flat earth bible, Zetetic
Astronomy, and flat earth priests use it because they know it’s not accurate. It gives them incorrect values that they can
use to claim that they shouldn’t be able to see something, when in fact they totally
should. There are dozens of videos on youtube demonstrating
this, several of which reference the actual formula that actually describes earth’s
curvature, which as you can see requires trigonometry. Stop blindly repeating what you hear on flat
earth videos, and learn some basic math so that you can do these calculations for yourself. Number three. All flat earthers say the same two things
about water. The first is “water doesn’t curve”,
and the second is “water finds its own level”. The second phrase is completely meaningless,
so the fact that you all say that exact thing verbatim is just one of the many demonstrations
that you all blindly repeat what you hear without giving it a moment’s thought. As for the first phrase, stating that water
doesn’t curve is at least a coherent thought, however, it is dead wrong. Put a drop of water on a piece of wax paper,
or a leaf. What does it look like? A freaking sphere! Isn’t that something? In your haste to mindlessly parrot what you
heard from flat earth priests about water, you forgot to look at water. Water curves, my friends. Look at this curved meniscus. Look at these waves. Water curves all the time. Water is not magic. It is subject to influence by external forces
just like all other matter. With a spherical water droplet, that’s the
electromagnetic force. Water molecules make hydrogen bonds with one
another, which in this context we refer to as cohesive forces. That’s why water has a very high surface
tension. And that’s why a water droplet remains spherical,
so that it can maximize the number of hydrogen bonds that are formed, and keep the system
at the lowest energy possible. So clearly and indisputably, water curves. In this example it is due to the electromagnetic
force. It is therefore quite easy to understand that
it can curve under the influence of any force. Including gravity. The oceans conform to the curvature of the
earth just like the land does, and for the same reason. This is why saying that “water finds its
own level” is absolutely meaningless. You think that level means flat, as though
on the globe model, water should just magically project into space at some arbitrary angle. In fact, level just means as close to the
center of the earth as possible. What’s most hilarious is that even in the
tool called the level, which only works because gravity exists, there is a curved bubble right
in there. If the bubble is curved, what is the liquid,
which is mostly water, doing around that bubble? It curves! It is absolutely astonishing how the things
you repeat from flat earth videos are incompatible with even the most trivial every day observations. You should acknowledge that. Number four. You are all quite perplexed about how earth’s
atmosphere can exist next to the vacuum of space. This one is rather amusing, because what’s
happening is that since you have no science education, your only context for the word
vacuum is a vacuum cleaner. And again, because you have no science education,
none of you understand how a vacuum cleaner works, which is a problem, because you seem
to think that outer space is a vacuum cleaner. Let’s take a moment and clear this up. A vacuum is any region where there is no stuff. Here there is stuff. Like air. In space, there is no stuff, or at least very
very close to no stuff. Space is essentially empty. That’s a vacuum. It is not a thing that sucks. Vacuums don’t suck. Everyone say it with me together. Vacuums don’t suck. Earth’s atmosphere displays a gradient because
gravity exists. There’s a lot of atmosphere right near the
ground, and then as you rise, because fewer and fewer molecules will have enough kinetic
energy to go so high, it gets thinner and thinner and thinner until there’s none left. Then you’re in space. It’s that simple. Number five. One of your favorite little “gotcha” challenges,
is to request that we demonstrate how water can stick to a ball spinning at a thousand
miles per hour. The implication is that water and everything
else should fly off of it, like a child getting thrown from a merry-go-round. Well it’s very cute that you get overwhelmed
by numbers with four digits in them, but in actuality the earth spins once per day. One time in twenty four hours. Get on a merry-go-round and have someone push
you one time around over twenty four hours. Not a very thrilling ride, is it? The issue is that the earth is really really
big. So if instead of using rotational velocity
to describe a rotating body, like a normal person, you try to use linear tangential velocity,
you’re gonna get a pretty big number. But to be honest, it’s still not really
that big. Planes go more than half that speed, and sitting
on a plane at cruising altitude with no turbulence is just like sitting on a chair on the ground. Flat earth priests cite these big velocities
associated with the earth and the solar system purely for shock value, and you’re falling
for it. Stop doing that. Furthermore, this little “water doesn’t
stick to a ball” challenge is the strawiest straw man that was ever made of straw. The earth is huge. It generates an enormous gravitational field. That’s why everything sticks to it. A ball is very tiny. It does not generate an enormous gravitational
field, so things don’t stick to it. Also, unless you’re doing this in space,
the ball must be very close to the earth, which as we just said, generates an enormous
gravitational field. So when water drips off the ball onto the
ground, your desired demonstration of gravity fails because gravity exists. Stop asking for ridiculous and impossible
demonstrations, like having to build an earth-sized object to show you how water sticks to something
as big as the earth. Number six. Lots of you say that moonlight is cold. This is astonishing for a number of reasons. The first is that it is not related to any
claim you could possibly be making in order to argue for a flat earth. But the second, and much more important detail,
is that it is the perfect demonstration of the fact that you have no clue how science
works. Some flat earth priest measured the temperature
under the moonlight, and then again under something providing shade. Wow! Moonlight makes it colder! But does it? Shouldn’t you add some element of control
to your experiment? What’s a control you ask? Fair question. You see, your measurement isn’t evidence
of anything. You now have to repeat the experiment when
there is no moonlight to make sure that the moonlight was indeed the cause of the discrepancy
in temperature. This is something you should have learned
in middle school, but don’t worry, I’ll finish the experiment for you. Take the measurements again on a night with
a new moon, so that there is no moonlight. Look at that! You’ll get the same result. So the moonlight absolutely wasn’t the reason
for the discrepancy in temperature. What was the reason? Well that thing that is providing the shade
from the moonlight is also trapping in heat that is emanating from the earth while it
faces away from the sun. So, case closed. I’ll link to at least one empirical demonstration
of this fact in the description below. See how important it is to know how to do
a science experiment? Maybe you should actually learn science, rather
than just repeating what you hear on flat earth videos. Number seven. Many of you say some unintelligible nonsense
about water flowing uphill, or that on the globe model, some rivers flow uphill. This one is so stupid that I genuinely can’t
believe any human could fall for it. You’ll look at a globe and say that a river
flows this way, and that this is somehow uphill, because you seem to think that up on the screen
is some kind of universal up in space. Well how about if I turn this a little bit? What do you know! Now it’s down. Listen up. There is no up and down in space. This is not up. This is not down. To believe so would be as dumb as thinking
that on earth, whichever way you happen to be facing is north. No one on earth is upside down, or on their
side. Up on earth is away from the surface of the
earth, no matter where you are on the earth. Rivers flow from higher elevation to lower
elevation, which is a measure of how far away you are from the surface of the earth. This has nothing to do with flowing in any
particular direction along the surface. This is also why people who make videos acting
confused about why elevation doesn’t change between various sea level locations around
the world, are among the dumbest people alive. This is sea level. This is sea level. This is above sea level. This is above sea level. That’s what elevation means. Learn the definitions of words before you
try to use them in a sentence. Number eight. Many flat earthers remain dumbfounded by the
idea that the earth is slightly closer to the sun in winter than in summer. As I’ve said before, winter up north is
summer down south, and vice versa. So your confusion is one of northern hemisphere
narcisissm. But it is also one of complete ignorance. Here’s the earth. Here’s the light coming from the sun. Look at this portion. It hits the earth straight on. Look at this portion. Because of the curvature of the earth, the
light hits the surface at an angle, and is therefore distributed around a greater area. Same amount of heat distributed around a larger
area, lower average temperature. This is absolutely trivial to understand. It’s why magnifying glasses can focus light
to a point and set things on fire. It’s how heat works. Flat earth priests know this, they just pretend
to be confused about things that they know their viewers won’t check up on. Number nine. Many flat earthers refer to the body of scientific
knowledge as “scientism”. This is meant to be derogatory, implying that
science is a religion. I’m very sorry, but saying this just demonstrates
that you know nothing about science, and probably didn’t pass a single science class in high
school. Science students are not told what to believe. They are shown how to perform experiments. Even in high school physics, students use
blocks and ramps and balls and pendulums and carts and rulers and timers to derive Newton’s
laws and many other such pillars of science. They personally do the science that has already
been done by others in order to derive the knowledge that we already know, and prove
its validity to themselves. This continues through college, and then on
into graduate school, where students do their own research and figure out things that no
one else has done yet. So using the word scientism only serves to
disqualify you from adult conversation regarding science. In actuality, it is quite clear why you adopt
this viewpoint. Because you just accept whatever you hear
if it’s what you want to believe. This is why your beliefs are baseless. Since you are incapable of doing anything
other than repeating what you are told, you assume that others are doing the same thing. But they are not. Those that are educated in the sciences understand
how things work, and use this information to build technology, such as computers and
the internet, both of which you use to claim that the science that produced them isnt real,
in a display of irony so thick that you could cut it with a knife. And to wrap things up, number ten. The piece de resistance. The claim that we have all been indoctrinated. That we have been brainwashed, by schools,
by the government, by NASA, by freemasons, by Hollywood. Take your pick. Well, as I have demonstrated in this clip,
you all say the same exact ridiculous things word for word, like you’re reciting the
oath of the flat earth fraternity, so it’s a rather silly accusation to be throwing around. The fact that you all say the same things
is not surprising in the slighest. What do you do when you want to brainwash
someone? You tell them they have already been brainwashed. That’s what flat earth priests do. They tell you that you’ve been brainwashed
so that you are nice and receptive to the brainwashing. They tell you that everything you know is
a lie so that they can lie to you. It’s human psychology 101. Why do they do this? Money. Status. It’s a way for con men to capitalize on
the gullible few who exhibit a combination of ignorance and suggestibility. It’s a cult. You’re part of a cult. Not like the “kill yourselves with kool-aid”
kind, but it’s not that far off. So get angry, call me a shill, call me whatever
you want. I guarantee that many of you will attempt
to bring up these ten things I just talked about while commenting on this very video,
having not even watched any of it. Most of the rest will avoid addressing anything
I said and just vomit a bunch of other, different flat earth talking points. But hopefully a small handful of you will
have the courage to accept that you’ve fallen for a hoax. It’s not that big a deal. Many of us have fallen for hoaxes or been
manipulated at one time or another, myself included. Just admit it to yourself and walk away. And when you’re ready to learn science in
earnest, my tutorials will be waiting you. Thanks for watching.

  1. Oh my Lord you are funny!! I love it!! I wish I knew a flatearther personally so I could send them your videos!! "Northern Hemisphere Narcissism" lol

  2. Question. Why does the earth have to be a globe in order to have gravity?

    I have an standard American education wwas of the belief that all objects have gravity, whether it is infinitesimal or grand.

    Look forward to your response.

    Ps: not a flat earther.

  3. All you have are facts and common sense. If you put facts and common sense aside you’ll fully understand the flat earth model. 🌏

  4. This video is the best explanation of a sphere earth i have ever seen. Every point made sense and is logical. Thx for this video Professor Dave, you earned my sub 🙂

  5. I cant believe you have to do these Videos! What is wrong with these people. Galileo prooved all this with a telescope and math in 1609 that we have a solar system!
    and what the fuck is a Flat Earth Priest?

  6. So very well done. I am impressed, entertained, and delighted.
    The fastest 18 minute video I've seen in a long time! (Time flies when you're having fun.)

  7. Water seeks its own level?
    Hmmmm. Wait a minute, lemme try something. I'll be right back.

    ………

    Well, I put a cloth soaked with water on the table, then starting pouring more water, from a jug, onto it. Sure enough, the water I poured fell right down to the wet cloth and didn't fall any farther–like through the table.
    So, hypothesis confirmed! Water seeks its own …

    Well, at first, that's what happened. But as I poured more water, some of it ran to the edge of the table and … fell down to the floor! What a shock! ALL the other water (except what I still had in the jug) was on the table. Why was the water that ran to the edge of the table falling down? Why, it was as if it were running AWAY from its own level!

    Now I'm mystified. How the hell did that happen???

  8. I am genuinely interested to know how a Flat Earth apologist would explain why it is that when I call from Japan in the middle of the night to my sister who lives on the east coast of North America, she swears it is the middle of the day for her.

    IS SHE LYING TO ME? THAT BITCH.

  9. Professor David. This is without a doubt, the best and most educational flat earth debunking video I have ever seen!
    If there was just some why to strap all flat earthers down and make them watch this, the world would be a far less stupid place.

  10. you said birds can fly because they flap their wings and generate an upward force, if that force exceeds the gravitational force they go up 3:21 I was just wondering how come a tiny little fly can generate enough upward force to exceed gravitational force. So Gravity must be very weak. And yet the moon is 250,000 miles away and Earth's gravity is strong enough to keep in orbit. I know all about mass, I'm just talking about gravitational force.

  11. A lot of the Flat Earth comments are saying "prove the Earth is a globe" as though the default state of a planet is a flat plane. We can see other planets. All planets are round, Earth is a planet, therefor wouldn't the Earth be round also?

  12. As Finnish i cannot understand how stupid People can be 😂😂😂🤣🤣 u can see the effects of school systems In Finland vs USA 😂😂😂

  13. Great video man!
    Sadly, if one is stupid enough to believe in flat earth, he/she will be incapable of understanding what you say, although you use probably the simplest explanations possible.
    I have a friend who believes in flat earth…. Eerytime we meet he presents some new "evidence" to me…. everytime I debunk it for him…. Everytime this is not enough to convince him otherwise…. And everytime he does not bother to try and understand what I am saying.

    He also likes to add in some other flavors of crazy… Like last night when he started talking about the stupid theory that humans were not made to eat meat, because of our digestive system not being the same as carnivores (not minding the fact that our digestive system is actually much closer to that of carnivores, than that of herbivores). And to spice it up… It was "the demons" that made us eat meat a long time ago…. I just stood silent and drank my whisky….

  14. I'm confused now. I was a globetard until I watched this video, but then I realized the other side is right. How the hell does water flow uphill over the 8" hump? It can't be done. You tried to trick us with all that sea level talk, but I know impossible when I see it. Furthermore, it is a well known fact that as light gets tired it refracts more. That's why ships look like that sailing away. Finally, if the earth is a ball why doesn't my dog try fetch it?

    You aren't fooling me science man.

  15. Several thoughts:
    1 – the soaking wet tennis ball experiment would actually prove that water-can-stick-to-a-spinning-ball if — IF — they spun that tennis ball at 0.000694 RPMs…. or one revolution per 24 hours. Then the forces that make water 'sticky' (Hydrogen bonding) would be strong enough to offset the "centrifugal" force exerted by such a slow spin.

    2 – Helium, as a Noble Gas, …. so "Lord Helium"?… is just hanging out in the atmosphere. But as a low-atomic weight, wouldn't it be in a very specific region of the atmosphere? Is there a way we can gather it from up there? Perhaps an incredibly tall snorkel? Or a high-altitude weather balloon which would skim it from the air, then somehow package it and drop it down?

    3 – for your 7th point: if one stood on the axis-of-rotation at the South Pole… whichever direction you face would be North. Checkmate This proves that the moon cools you down. (I'm kidding, it's just that "moonchill" is something I'd never heard of before, and I can't see how it relates to flat-earth at all. It's… "meta-dumb". It's the dumb of dumbness.)

  16. You know one thing that flat-earther afraid of? Math. Don't ask why, ask how. Challenge them to come up with equations and numbers. How far is the sun, moon, stars in their model? How do those move? How big is the earth? When are sunrise, sunset, eclipse, moon eclipse in a location/day in UK, US? Challenge them publicly to the most arrogant, confident flat-earthers and see how they dodge. That's only reaction will happen. You know why? Because if they are capable of forming equation through empirical observations, they will NOT become flat-earther.

  17. But seriously though. There is no such thing as empty space. Even in a vacuum there are still particles popping in and out of existence. I think. Lol

  18. If I'm being honest I'm not a huge fan of these comments ripping on flat earthers, cause I feel like it really isn't helpful and is only going to make them even less willing to listen to us and achieve an accurate understanding of our planet. If someone you disagreed with called you a stupid loser, would you want to listen to what they had to say?

  19. Hahahaha classic. The ocean doesn't have wings. lmao. Birds also have mostly hollow lightweight bones. The con artists will never listen though. Cheers for the video.

  20. Hello Professor, I don’t understand why you need so many things to prove that earth is round? Whereas there are so many easy evidence for that. As follows.

    1. If you place a gyroscope (ability to maintain direction in space regardless of the movement) on the earth surface it will experience tilt and drift, if the earth is as the flat earthier say, then it would not have any tilt at all & drift (subject to whether the flat earth rotates around its own point or axis), if rotate then will have drift, if not then no drift.

    2. Another strong point is corriolocis force. The wind from the equator have to have reduced radius( distance from rotational axis) as it goes up in both the hemisphere, thereby to maintain constant angular momentum it’s speed has to increase thus overshoot the earth surface speed, vice versa and tends to deflect right in north hemisphere and left in south hemisphere. (Direction of wind, from where it’s coming). For the same reason, TRS( Cyclone/typhoon) rotates in opposite direction in NH & SH.

    3. If you sail along the earth surface and tries to keep Constant course you will be sailing in Mercator projection which is curved route and longer distance and if you want to sail in straight point to point (reduced distance) then have to follow great circle sailing meaning changing course all the time, if the earth would be flat, then this phenomena does not need to come in the first place.

    4. If the earth is flat then how do you explain ocean current and wind pattern?

    5. If the earth is flat the most of the shipping route from extreme west to extreme east would be so much longer than it is today

  21. Thanks for di educational video professor Dave ,hopefully some of those flat brainers would pay attention and learn something about science & humility!🌎

  22. Loved this video, I've always said the flat earth is nothing but a scheme to gain control of the masses much like religion!

  23. I see there is 3.4k dislikes. Is this how many people believe the earth is flat, Or is there more ? Either way that is too many…

  24. Everybody say it with me together: "Vacuums don't suck." I actually got a fit of giggles. Never has science been such fun (I was dismally undertaught science subjects in high school) and thank you for clearing concepts I cannot explain when people make stupid claims – though I did realise a vacuum is not a hoover, thank you, Latin!

  25. Wow. You make the flat theory look true! When are you guys going to show the scientific proof of it one way or the other??? I don't think you ever will. You are all full of it. What if it's a half circle? Or hollow?? If you don't show EVIDENCE, THEN YOU ARE A hack! Wake up.

  26. The best teacher I ever had was when I was age 11 at primary school in the UK. Mr Wilson loved Greek mythology (as well as Roman and Egyptian) so our Mathematics lessons included a lot of Hipparchus and Pythagoras.

    I remember Mr Wilson explaining that by measuring the shadow cast by a stick in the ground, Eratosthenes managed to apply maths to calculate the circumference of the earth. It turns out he was a little out.. The error borders on insignificance when you consider the size of the planet. . I thought (and still do) was amazing.

    2,500 year based on science the ancients of the time understood that the world is globe. They actually thought a perfect globe, a reasonable conclusion based on the information that they had at the time. Eratosthenes calculations where perfect, what he couldn't possibly have known is that the planet isn't a perfect sphere so he was slightly out. He was a hell of a lot closer than this lot.

    BTW you also recapped a number of Mr Wilsons lessons in your video, it took me back to bye-gone-times.

  27. When I heard, that there were people, that still thought the earth was flat I said to myself," this couldn't be true", but then i seen some YouTube videos, and was astonished , holy crap their are a whole crap load of morons out there.

  28. I have listened to the bull crap that Rob Skiba spews and figured out that he takes the literal parts of the bible figurative and the figurative parts literally because he isnt a real bible scholar. Oh and before you start on the bible, Job 26:7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing. over 3000 years ago.

  29. the 3.4 k dislikes are a bunch of flat earth idiots that are just in denile and know nothing about science and physics. ya know, I saw a video of I think was space x asking a flat earther "if the earth is flat, why isn't mars flat?" the response to that question was priceless. it was "good question, it is scientifically proven that mars is indeed round". WTF? that was the dumbest thing I have ever heard that it was funny.

  30. Random question: how linked is flat earth to Christianity? Not trying to offend honestly just asking due to personal experiences.

  31. The earth is flat. Stop trying to deny it. You think just because you know long words you can spread lies across the world like that?

  32. Imagine the distribution range and sheer numbers of Emperor penguins all along the Antarctic coastlines, on a flat Earth. It's quite impressive..

    They'd have the furthest distribution of any known animal. It would take such a long time for this species to circumnavigate the flat Earth; waddling!! After all, some 45 colonies or so are known from many locations on Antarctica, which isn't that weird on a sphere, but on a flat disc, you'd expect to see quite some variation due to these colonies evolving over time. A colony of these birds on one side of the flat Earth is still the same species as the ones that live all the way on the other side of the disc. But it's literally the furthest possible route to travel, taking the longest amount of time. Why aren't there dozens of sub-species for Aptenodytes forsteri? There are two subspecies of Aptenodytes patagonicus, but King penguins are usually found on lower latitudes than Emperor penguins. So if King penguins come in two subspecies, but live on lower latitudes, then why is there only one species of Emperor penguin, which lives on higher latitudes? It's counter-intuitive on a flat Earth model. Should be the other way around. There should be dozens of subspecies for both species, honestly, but there aren't. Why? Because the distances between colonies aren't as ginormous as they would be on a flat Earth.

    This is a weird counter-argument, I know. But it's certainly worth considering. It's just one of many problematic facts that have to be accounted for, and if we can mention something as weird as distribution ranges of freakin penguins as a counter-argument to the idea that the Earth is a flat disc, then that just goes to show how silly the idea of a flat disc Earth really is.

  33. There is a difference to being brainwashed and having knowledge, I hope that the hypocrisy shows its colors some day soon.

  34. Disclaimer: I’m not a “flat earther”. It seems to me that gravity does not disprove flat earth models. If the Earth wasn’t a globe (I’m not saying I think it’s flat) then there would be many things that could be possibly different. Including how we understand gravity to work. Again I’m not a flat earther. I’m just saying gravity does not necessarily disprove a flat earth model. There’s so many factors and both normal people who believe in a globe and flat earthers are claiming to know how everything works. There is so much complexity and science that we don’t understand so I think many arguers (on both sides) think they know more than they actually do. That’s all I’m gonna say on that. I would like to know if anyone else knows what I’m talking about and could give some input to this.

  35. Do you really expect me to believe that this thing called gravity is why my big fat belly hangs below my belt? OMG next you will want me to believe the Earth is round or something ridiculous like that or water droplets falling from the sky or basketballs going through hoops, cars hanging out on highways. DUH!
