For the vast majority of us, that does not need to be said. I think it is an unfortunate situation that it needs to be said at all. But, here we are.
This page is for the purpose of refuting the Flat Earth claims. Plain and simple.
In doing this, I will be imposing certain rules on myself. These are the same things that Flat Earthers claim that they use. That sis one of the basics of the Flat Earth belief, that all the pictures, videos, telescopes and so forth are digital and so what they produce is all faked, CGI, and so on.
I will not rely on anything that uses digital technology.
I will use basic observation and logic.
This isn't a discussion. I am stating my case straight out for all the Flat Earthers to see.
If you are willing to engage in a discussion about this that exercises some basic courtesy and respect, you can find me on G+.

One of the Flat Earth claims
is that Antarctica is actually a giant ice wall around the edge.
Unfortunately, that theory does not account for expeditions to the South
Pole.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Antarctic_expeditionsAnd you cannot have a pole as the rim of a disc.Oh,
and why do compasses work on a flat planet? It takes a magnetic field
for them to function and you cannot have a magnetic field without having
two poles.How is it that it can be night in Hawaii while its
morning in New York? On a flat Earth, the whole planet would see the Sun
set and rise at exactly the same moment. Go ahead, use a flashlight for
the Sun and a big table for a Flat Earth and see which parts of the
table go dark when your flashlight-Sun sets.Since before
computers, since Galileo himself invented the telescope, people have
been using glass lensed telescopes to see the planets and moons of our
Solar System. Why are all the planetary bodies spherical while the Earth
is flat? Whey are there no flat meteors, asteroids or comets. All of which are visible using glass lensed telescopes with large enough lenses.Why is it that a person can pick a spot anywhere on Earth and travel in a straight line only to eventually arrive at their starting point?
