Flat Earthers’ proof that the Earth is flat

There are people among us who genuinely believe the Earth is flat. Some of them belong to the Flat Earth Society.

These people argue that when we move on the surface of the planet we can see and feel that it is flat.

On their website Flat Earthers say: “The evidence for a flat earth is derived from many different facets of science and philosophy. The simplest is by relying on ones own senses to discern the true nature of the world around us. The world looks flat, the bottoms of clouds are flat, the movement of the sun; these are all examples of your senses telling you that we do not live on a spherical heliocentric world.”

Satellite pictures showing the Earth as a globe are an elaborate scientific conspiracy orchestrated by NASA and other government agencies.

Flat Earthers believe

Earth is a disc with the Arctic Circle in the centre and Antarctica, a 46 metre wall of ice, around the rim.

NASA employees guard this ice wall to prevent people from climbing over and falling off the disc.

The Bedford Level Experiment

“In short, this was an experiment performed many times on a six-mile stretch of water that proved the surface of the water to be flat. It did not conform to the curvature of the earth that round earth proponents teach.”

Fake space travel

The space agencies of the world are involved in a conspiracy faking space travel and exploration. The conspiracy is most likely motivated by greed rather than political gains. The space myth makes it possible for huge amounts of money to be embezzled as it only takes a fraction of the total budget to fake space travel.

Fake photographic evidence

“In general, we at the Flat Earth Society do not lend much credibility to photographic evidence. It is too easily manipulated and altered.”

  • Flat Earthers deny photographic evidence of a spherical Earth or that space travel ever took place.
  • Photos of the globe are photoshopped, GPS devices are rigged to make airplane pilots think they are flying in straight lines around a sphere when they are actually flying in circles above a disc.
  • If a plane was flying from North to South it would be upside down by the time it reaches its destination.

Day and Night

The sun and moon are spheres measuring 51 km that move in circles 4,828 km above the plane of the Earth.

What lies underneath?

What lies underneath the disk of Earth is unknown, but most Flat Earthers believe it is composed of rocks. It is definitely not the giant turtle of Native American mythology.

Gravity is an illusion

Objects do not accelerate downward, instead the disc of Earth accelerates upward at 32 feet per second squared (9.8 meters per second squared), driven up by a mysterious force called dark energy.

Motive for concealment

The motive for world governments’ concealment of the true shape of the Earth has not been ascertained, but Flat-Earthers believe it is probably financial.

“In a nutshell, it would logically cost much less to fake a space programme than to actually have one, so those in on the conspiracy profit from the funding NASA and other space agencies receive from the government.”


With so much “proof” and speculation out there, are you doubting your worldview or are there perhaps other outlandish theories that you support?
