Flat Earth vs. Ball Earth...

  • CHB will be closing down as of 31st July 2021. It's been a brilliant experience to run the website for the past 9 years, however it's time for me to move onto different projects. Thanks to every single person involved, from staff, former staff, posters old and current. All support means more than anyone knows. Thanks for your understanding.

Let's say that their opinion is true and that the world is flat...why? Why would the powerful elite want to lie about the shape of the earth? What different does it make to them and how does it keep their grip on the world tighter? It's a ludicrous theory anyway, but I can't understand why they think that there's power and control to be gained in lying about something that's inconsequential.

Very odd people.

I think the people that first started it were just fucking around but there is no shortage of stupid people so it wasn't long before actual believers started to surface.

No one really believes this shit.

I mean, if you put a gun to their head and on a lie detector or whatever they'd admit they don't really believe it.

Exactly the same as religious people. No one really believes that shit.

Jesus, not this stupid shit again. I wish the Earth were flat and all the fools that believe that ridiculous theory should walk to the edge and fall off to save us from listening to such bullshit. But, alas, it's round, although not perfectly round, and such good thought can't come true.

They use the lie to drive up oil prices by claiming the tankers require extra time and fuel to travel over a rounded surface.

I think you might be right. There is no telling how gullible some people are.

Hmmmm... the facade begins to crack under scrutiny.
Hell, even the smoothest manmade round object, not matter how much care is taken in it's production is still not perfectly round and has a rough surface if magnified enough times.

From outer space, the Earth looks like a beautiful round blue marble. But the closer you get, little things like the Alps, Himalayas, Pyrenes, Urals, Rockies, Andes, etc. kind of tell the real story.

Aside from those that blow themselves up in the name of god that you defend?

It is amazing what people will post under the veil of anonymity. If we were posting under our real names here there would be very few claiming to believe the earth is flat. Let alone try to argue it.
