I fully encourage you guys to look into some of this crap. It's highly entertaining. Absolutely stupid, but also entertaining. Let me try and address a few things I've picked up from these nutjobs.....
Imagine a flat disc, with a pole in the center rising from it. Attach a string to the sun and the moon, attach the strings to the pole. The sun and moon rotate around this axis, staying on the edge of the disc. As the sun moves away from you and the moon gets closer, it's night. The closer the sun is to you on this flat plain, the more daylight you see.
The flat earth is moving upwards. The force of gravity isn't pulling you to the center of the earth, it's simply the force of the earth moving upwards through space that is pushing you down to the surface.
What's there to explain? Everything is flat, there are no curves. Shipping lanes are all in straight lines and the only thing that's moving is the sun around the circle.
Yeah, I fucking love these guys. So simply devoid of common sense, yet they come up with these simple explanations for everything that if you dont think about it, it all makes total sense!
I posted about this last week, I'm calling it now. When this guy dies doing this. The "Flat Earth people" will blame his death on the government trying to cover up the earth is flat... Not his stupidity.
He can't (and conveniently, preemptively admitted as much by saying he wouldn't try). Which is probably for the best, as I doubt that conversation would be appreciated in any event.
That’s pretty much how religion works.He edited the post after I quoted him, knowing full well he had no real argument. My quote of him was the only thing he had written at the time. I like how he claims my post is incendiary (it isn't), yet he goes back and edits in further nonsense to avoid responding directly hoping I wouldn't see it and or that it would somehow validate his position. Honestly it just further reinforces what I said in my original point.
More truth to this than most think. Rumor has it this guy isn't a Flat Earther. He is just using their ignorance to fund his projects. Hell if they are going for it, more power to him.I think it's hilarious that these flat earthers are able to troll just about everyone, even the wizkids on HOCP

I gotta imagine he was just in it for "research" money and he's disappearing before the next scheduled date. Or hell, maybe he just wants to go out in a ball of flames.Hughes only recently converted to flat-Eartherism, after struggling for months to raise funds for his follow-up flight over the Mojave.
Hughes’s ultimate goal is a subsequent launch that puts him miles above Earth, where the 61-year-old limousine driver hopes to photograph proof that it's a disk we all live on.
I've always wondered what would happen when one of the flat Earthers goes into space and comes back and says "You know guys, it is a sphere". I bet they would believe their own person was brainwashed.Nah, it'll be a CIA/NSA/NASA hit/cover up.
Can't let the truth out.
That's the entire basis of the Flat earth theory, it's backed by a major conspiracy theory.The part that makes no sense of these guys is what about all the folks working in the Space/SATCOM industry? Are you telling me all of us are paid off by government to not reveal the 'truth'. It's idiotic.
Shit, I wish the Earth was flat - Imagine how much cheaper communications would be since we could just do a microwave shot everywhere instead of needing the height of space to get around the curve.
One thing is for certain, the fact that we know people can be duped about something that literally everyone should know the answers to, how problematic would it be if the subject in question is now no longer as well known by your ordinary citizen?I have trouble believing most of these flat Earthers are anything more than trolls. Just trying to get a rise out of people, or trick the uneducated into making themselves look stupid. Does anybody actually personally know somebody that is a legit flat Earther? There just can't be many people that can be duped by such obvious nonsense.
You have more faith than I gungadin.
No idea what that last word even is, but no I do not have faith. I believe things which can be proven using logic and evidence. At present the Big bang is the most logical theory we have that has evidence supporting it. That does not imply that it isn't without fault and that it is indisputable. However since I know where you are trying to go with this. There is absolutely Zero evidence whatsoever for creationism. So the reality is you either believe that the Big bang is the most credible current theory or you choose to revel in ignorance as per my original statement.

I read he's already made it a 1/4 mile in distance and was pretty banged up. Not sure how high he got before, during, or after that one though.Did anyone else catch the part where his fuel is steam power, lol? Seriously, he's gonna boil water under pressure and use it to propel himself....talk about a terrible idea...can't wait to see how it mangles his body, lol.
