an angry poster on LL:
Here it is folks. I'm getting a little sick and tired of the Flat Earth "people"

and suggests they consume this clip by a very young Carl Sagan

The hideously ugly building in the background is Boston City Hall.

It certainly hasn't. There are proposals in the works, though. The Gubmint Center T-stop that is several feet to the right of Sagan has been closed for like 2 years and is reopening in a month, with new state-of-the-art grunge and squeaky trains. :thumbs:

Thanks for that info, first thought it may have been a Mayan Aztek remnant. The Founding Fathers missed to dump it along the tea leaves :lol:

I want to point out that a Flat Earth is absolutely essential to surviving worldwide climate change. When the melting of the ice caps causes the sea levels to rise, the extra water will simply slosh over the edge. Otherwise it will submerge the coastlines and eventually drown us all.

Years ago, I somehow stumbled across a site for the flat earth society. I thought it was a joke at first. Then I started reading it. That made me even more certain it was a joke / troll hoax. There was a FAQ section which was absolutely side-splitting funny. It had questions such as "why do you think the Earth is flat??" with answers like "it looks that way up close". I think all these flattards have been duped.

Yeah if I was a Flatard troll, I would find the 2 vids above hysterically funny, that they had forced someone to do all this work to debunk their stupid bollox would give me the laugh of my life. I imagine there are only a minority of true believers, and a majority of guys who just love arguing

It fits with the "alternative anything" mindset which allows dilettantes to conclude that vaccines cause autism, the US is a corporation, that 9-11 was an inside job, Sandy Hook was a false flag, that there are secret accounts which pay off your straw man's debts, and so on. The believers aren't examining anything too closely, unless it comes in a youtube video from some guy's basement.

Shaq believes the Earth is flat, too
Could it be that the only way NBA players can jump so high is because they are among the few who know that the Earth is actually flat and this gives them to confidence to leap?

I only ask because one or two of the most famous NBA names have recently expressed their Flat-Earther credentials.

The latest is former Lakers' star and now TNT analyst Shaquille O'Neal.

On a February edition of "The Big Podcast With Shaq" that's just been, um, unearthed, Shaq insisted: "It's true. The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat. Yes, it is. Listen, there are three ways to manipulate the mind -- what you read, what you see and what you hear. In school, first thing they teach us is, 'Oh, Columbus discovered America,' but when he got there, it was some fair-skinned people with the long hair smoking on the peace pipes. So, what does that tell you?"

You got that right. :rotflmao: :rotflmao:


The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.
