    Trust your senses. Do you feel the earth moving? No! Because it's stationary and flat! Duh.

    First off, I would like to address what he said about the moon landing being done on a set, because saying that is similar to saying that all food is a hologram. Apollo 11 was launched on July 16, 1969 and was designed to bring man to the moon, and return them to Earth safely. During this time, the landing was being recorded live, and shown around the world on many television stations. If it was being done on a set, the chance that the entire world, including the people broadcasting it, would not notice it is unimaginably small. You would literally have to trick the recorders, the watchers, the government, and everybody that witnessed firsthand the rocket blasting off into space. You would also have to fool the people that were present when the capsule landed safely on the ground. The biggest proof that man has been to the moon, however, are that the artifacts like the footprint and the flag, that are still on the moon. We have also sent countless other equipment to the to the moon as well. The flat earther in the video also does not have a lick of proof to say that the landing was done on a set.

    The concept that these flat earthers never seem to understand is that the Earth is much bigger than they think it is. To be able to perceive the curvature of the Earth, you need to be at least 35K feet in the air, and have a very large field of view. In addition, the horizon must be crystal clear, and if not, the slight curvature will be hidden. If by chance all of those conditions are met, Earth's curvature will still only be noticeable if somebody really tries to view it, and is not something that is easily viewable from a small plane window. Telling me that the Earth is flat just because you cannot see the curve from a plane window is extremely narrow minded and quite a shallow piece of evidence.

    Saying that NASA's only purpose is to lie to us is both false and naive for a number of reasons. One of these reasons is that there is legitimately no reason for NASA to lie to the world. It is not like they are going to gain more money or support for upholding a falsehood, and in fact, they would get the opposite. Another reason why his claim is fake is because there is zero proof anywhere that NASA is lying to us. If NASA were lying to us, than they would have already been exposed and successfully sued a number of times. NASA would also not be receiving funding anymore, since lying on that scale to that many people is illegal. There are also other private companies and individuals that continue to send their own spaceships into the cosmos, so telling us that the government is the only entity that controls where we get our information is not true. If you wanted to, you could go right now and watch a space launch on YouTube, that was not done by NASA.

    During the video, there is a point where he is asked if he can prove that the Earth is flat (2:46), and his answer is ,"No". The reason why he cannot prove that the Earth is flat is because there is no proof of that claim. Only ,"evidence" to say that we live on a flat Earth and nothing more. All you have to do to see that the Earth is flat is climb a mountain and look to the horizon. If the Earth were flat, you would be able to see bright lights coming from cities hundreds of miles away, but since the Earth is not flat, that view doesn't exist. It also doesn't matter that the starting point is flat either. Earth is a large rocky planet, so to be able to see the curve at our walking point is truly ridiculous. In a following section in the video he says, "Well I've never been to the end of the Earth". The reason for this communication is that there is no end to get to. If there was an end of the earth, than people would have already reached it, but since no end exists, nobody has gotten there. Not even the flat earthers who say that there is an end to the Earth.

    I have a really good question?? If a space shuttle were to leave Earths atmosphere and in to space wouldn’t it be left behind because Earth is traveling 67,000 miles and hour? How would the shuttle return to earth as they would be lost in space right?

    I wonder if anyone of you people in the comments could demonstrate water bending around an object in it's natural liquid state, and when you realise you can not demonstrate it , ask yourself why it would be possible on a larger scale , why would that be different.

    Probably This Being Got Manipulated By Others, You See NASA Already Explained About This and It's Not Preconceived , These Believers Bulge More Words Like They Know What On Earth Are They Talking About, Real Talk , We Don't Even Know About Physics That Much , So For The Flat Earthers, Please Just Listen To The Higher Position Than Looking Dumb Like You Know Everything , You're Not Researcher Though , So You Shouldn't Be Digging Alot Of Believes Into Your Sentences , Also For The Guy Who Talks Nonsense
    His Words Even Slips From The Topic

    Still waiting for a flat earther to come up with a convincing reason for why we would be lied to. Thought we might get it with the "Why would NASA lie to us?" question but nope he dodged it by just saying well because they were created to lie to us. Also his reason at the end for why it matters just sounds like the mad ravings of some religious zelot, which is basically what these people are.

    Could you please explain pictures from Mars. It's sames Mars is also flat? I know that Flat Earther say only Earth is flat, not another planets.

    He says he has evidence but that he doesn't need to tell us what that evidence is in order to prove that his "proof" is legitimate. This really irks me because if you are wanting others to believe that what you are saying is true, you need to explain the evidence that backs up your belief. It isn't like you can walk up to a friend and say, "I believe the Earth is flat and I have evidence that it is true, but I'm not going to tell you so you must believe me." Then expect that friend to say that they completely agree with that and go on their merry way. The human mind doesn't work that way. Humans are naturally curious creatures. So when you say that you have evidence but don't wish to share it then it makes them curious over whether what you are telling them is truth or lies.

    HBO. Hmmm. No this is not a real flat earther. The real ones do not talk like this. And geoengineering is what explains all earth's weather.

    If the Earth were flat as depicted in any flat Earthers argument and model then there wouldn't be any temperature variations because the Sun simply rotates on circular plane. The polar regions can't exist in their model. The ancient Greeks proved the Earth was round a long long time ago. That's why they're fing ancient. And Greek. And let's not forget about an eclipse. If that doesn't prove the shape of our planet to you then fk, you're dumb beyond repair, and most likely BLIND.

  35. I never saw a doctor or an engineer or a smart person who believe that our earth is FLAT ..!
    I would love to collect there leaders and send then in a rocket to the moon and make them watch the round earth and if they still don't believe it they must be punished as we leave them in the moon and make them watch round earth till they die in our round moon 😅👍

    To Flat Earthers - instead of being loud and arguing the Earth is flat why not make some break through or technological achievement based on your theory? Put your theory in practice towards some advancement and you will have the attention of the scientific and Academic community. Seriously you have a clean canvas and a plethora of opportunities if your theory is correct.

    Look at the shadow of the moonnnnnn it is clearly RouND and that is my proof that the earth is round
