These are all so cornball it does set the mind wondering what the objective is.
Travel to any "edge" of the Earth and post a video from the drop off. Don't worry, I'll wait...
Ok how about this. If the Earth is flat, then show proof that with a strong telescope that you can look off the east coast of the US and see the coast of the UK or Africa..... Or look of the west coast of the US and see the coast of Australia, Japan, or Hawaii even... There won't be any mountains or habitats blocking view across the flat oceans.
Flat Earth is a troll if you don't realize you've been trolled, I'm sorry.
On what like marijuana?
Lol couldn't resist.
See this photograph proves it.
I'm wondering how they keep all the water in I can't just throw off the edge the oceans would drain
If you are in Colorado on the night of May 15th, 2022, at 10:11 PM, you will see the shadow of the Earth on the Moon.
It will be a visible partial eclipse from about 8:30 PM.
If the Earth is flat, then there will be a dark bar going across the upper part of the Moon, though I'm not sure what you'll see underneath the Earth, perhaps shadows from turtles.
If the Earth is essentially spherical, then whether you are a bit North or a bit South and before and after the total lunar eclipse, you will see segments of a circular shadow.
I just talked to someone who knows a flat Earther.
She claims the Earth is a bit over 7,000 feet thick, 1.5 miles, 2.5 km, that sort of thing.
So with the Sun on one side and the moon on the other, the shadow of the Earth will be a black line across the Moon.
And you should see under it shadows of the four pillars that support the Earth.
So definitely take a photo of that lunar eclipse and post it here.
Down to where?
I don't for a minute believe the earth is flat, but I don't have a problem with the flat-earthers. They're harmless and they're entertaining.

After asking a bit more about flat Earth I realized I was just assuming answers and not asking for them, so she wasn't telling me enough and I wasn't asking for enough.
The Flat Earth Model the person was advocating, and yes, she does believe it, is this:
The stars, moon and Sun are holes in the dome over the Earth.
I recognized that, I understand that it was commonly believed up until about 2,200 years ago.
And yes, it was disproven by the shadow of the Earth on the Moon, always curved and with a curvature indicating the diameter of the Earth was three times that of the Moon.
The added information that the Flat Earth model described to me had holes in the dome to the brightly lit Heaven above, was faulty in that I could see with my own eyes at night that Mars was an orange color and Venus and Jupiter very white, so they seemed to have their own sources of light.
Look a bit more carefully and many stars have different spectra, and are evidently separate light sources.
The 'holes in the dome' model left a question: why is the Sun so bright - too bright to look at - while the Moon is rather dim. How many people wear very little at night and get Moonburn?
I suspect a lot of Flat Earth believers might believe the light comes into the Universe from the outside, 'holes in a dome.' So disproving that idea might be very effective in reducing the number of Flat Earth believers.
They have believers all around the globe. It’s in their literature.
Public Service Message:
Ignoring the nutters is healthy behavior.
Yeah its so very clear.
Yeah but that proves nothing.
Two questions I have.
If the Earth is flat, then the light from the Sun would illuminate the whole plane right?
So how come we have two zones at any one time. One half is daytime, the other night.
During the Renaissance, a few hundred years ago, we proved the Earth is not flat.
If you float balloons in a straight line, the farther away the balloon, the lower it appears to be. If everything was flat, the balloons would be at the same height.
We have roughly 4,550 satellites in Space, I love it when you guys think you have done something babbling about the Moon program. Every satellite has to be placed in orbit. If the Earth was flat, they would come back down in short order...
It gets better.
Astronomy has been on fire for a generation. The progress has been incredible. We have found billions of things, in Space, that are round.
Whoulda thunk it?
Ahhh, that's right. If the Earth is flat, why do we need satellites orbiting the planet when we could just have bucket loads of booster relay antennas dotted across the planet.
Also, why do dedicated military GPS satellites take turns, there are at least 10 in orbit, 3 of which are used to triangulate your position, when you can see them zooming across the night sky? Wouldn't you think that they'd just sit there above the atmosphere?
Where do you think they got the idea for 'infinity' pools?
Poking a stick at them is too!
Let say you are 100% correct and the earth is flat. Wouldn't the bigger story be why has there been a conspiracy theory in place for over 2000 years if you include Pythagoras hypothesized it over 2500 years ago? Whether the earth is flat, sphere, cube, banana shaped or whatever, it kind of means it has always been that way. What is the reason for this 2 millennium scam? Who is behind it? This coverup would seem to predate the Illuminati, Templars, Masons etc... Also what is the gain for making people think they live on a globe? Is someone getting rich from this? Was Capernicus or Galileo rewarded for promoting a spherical earth theory? Do all of the scientist now that support the spherical earth theories get paid huge sums of money? Why doesn't Putin threaten the western world that he will spill the beans if we continue to support Ukraine or is this secret organization so powerful that crazy dictators fear them?
