And no arguments are needed. Just send your opponent to get higher education.

Actually, no one really hides anything.

The sphericity of the Earth is taught only to children in elementary school. All higher educational institutions and institutes consider the Earth to be flat and motionless. In all scientific manuals, forms, calculations of ballistics, geodesy, aviation, navigation, etc., the rotation and curvature of the Earth is not taken into account and it is stated that it is flat and does not rotate. That's the whole secret, no conspiracy and no worldwide conspiracy. A rotating ball - in theory, a stationary plane - in practice.

If a person believes in a flat earth, it means he believes that he is being deceived (after all, he was "forced" all his life to know where the earth is a geoid). But. Believing and knowing are different things. Besides, knowledge does not always kill faith. Faith is more than that. You can believe in anything, which in most cases you do not know, and sometimes you even know that it cannot be so. This is especially useful when knowledge has exceptions or is not subject to personal observation. Why is this needed? This is the only way to know the truth. After all, the truth is always ahead. Why not admit, for example, that in the variety of variants of the Universe, there is also a variant where the Earth is flat. The two articles on KIBIKA.COM about flat earth are not arguments, they are just information about belief in flat earth. Well, a little on where the legs grow from. These facts are very convincing arguments.

Just sit in Pobeda and fly to the Crimea in winter. (It's just a very budget option to be 2 km above the ground☺). Sit and look through the window) it's beautiful there. You can also see a circle on some horizon)) And also spray water against the sun from a sprinkler and see an arched little rainbow) but this is all optional. Who does not want, he will not see.

I can imagine what flat brains and thoughts people from a flat earth have. And I'm sad.

So, let's see ...

What arguments can you give to a person who wants to feel special, possessing special knowledge? ...

"Well done, I'm proud of you, keep it up? "

Why spoil a person's life? He chose these outcasts to show off. If you tell him that he is an idiot, then you are an idiot for him. You don't understand him.

Don't. He decided to cope with his problems like this, stop it.

If he is your close, you better support him. In the end, he wants to feel special, only in an unusual way.

Answer 6

The shadow of the Earth on the Moon during an eclipse is round. Although such a shadow can be cast by a flat disc. There is also a generally simple experience, on the basis of which in the 3rd century BC. Eratosthenes not only realized that the earth was round, but also calculated the circumference of the earth. Vertical objects near the equator practically do not give a shadow, and the same objects at the same time, closer to the poles give a shadow: the closer to the pole, the longer the shadow (it is best to conduct such an experiment on the day of the solstice).
However, it is not entirely clear , why explain something to such a person? Let yourself live on a flat Earth.

Answer 7
September, 2021

We are attracted to the center of the Earth. In the case of the Earth - a ball, this center is always strictly below us, we are attracted downward, everything is logical.

The center of the Earth-disk is located in the plane of this very disk, that is, somewhere away from us. Thus, we should be attracted to the side, but this does not happen (well, at least I do not). A very strong argument.

However, the main problem here is the obstinacy of the flat-overs themselves. The laws of physics are not an argument for them, any photo montage, logic is generally "empty obstinacy sharo * ba". If you decide to argue with them, then try to treat it as a joke, otherwise you will get a nervous breakdown

Just ask him to prove it is flat, all the community's evidence is based on the "spherical earth" counterarguments. They have conspiracy theories for all the arguments, but they are unlikely to be able to explain the physics of a flat-earth universe. You have a huge theoretical base of evidence - the theory of gravity, quantum mechanics, etc. Without them, the world in which we live, which we see, does not work. The next time you meet a flat-earth proponent, just drop something on the ground and ask him why the sun or moon doesn't do the same. And he is unlikely to be able to provide you with the same detailed description of the process on his flat land, which you can show him on a ball-shaped one.

Billions are being spent on space exploration because it's all a conspiracy. All photographs of the Earth, videos - pitiful Photoshop and cheap editing. We are being told that the Earth is a geoid, and we believe in this propaganda. And yet, Hitler is still alive, HIV was developed in America, Saddam Hussein planned to take over the world with the support of aliens and Nazi bases still function on the moon (although he forgot to write that there is no moon).

You stupid shareebs, come to your senses! If the earth is spinning, then why am I when I jump - do not end up in a neighboring city? And the arguments run out? These your scientists - they have not proved anything - have not convinced anyone! Cocococo

Answer 13

As always, the golden mean is correct. Planet Earth is neither flat nor a ball, but a geoid (ellipsoid of revolution). It keeps neither on three whales nor on turtles, but moves along the world line in 4-dimensional space-time. The sky is neither a glass dome nor an endless abyss of space, but the observable universe with a radius of 13.8 billion light years. Homo sapiens dominate on this planet!

A fairly budgetary way: climb a high radio tower or climb a mountain (not budgetary enough) and even from such a height the horizon will be arched, which will confirm the roundness of the Earth.

  1. If the Earth is flat, then all regions of the Earth will be equally illuminated by the Sun. That is a situation when it is summer in Brazil and winter is impossible in Russia.

  2. For the same reason, a situation is impossible when in Artik it is a polar day, and in the rest of Russia day changes to night.

  3. For this reason, sunrises and sunsets must occur simultaneously throughout the Earth. There are no time zones on this Earth.
