    Are you incapable of offering up an answer to my question? And to think you can believe your eyes, as you just said, has been proven many times, that you cannot believe them in every case.

    There are many examples of this online, but I first saw the evidence in books. One example that is a good one, is that the moon appears to be larger when it rises above the horizon. But if you have a measuring tool, you can prove that it isn't larger and you are looking at an illusion. You cannot believe your eyes, upon first perception, but a measuring tool will not lie to you, as your eyes did.

    That you can offer up nothing, except your original claim is a big fail. But perhaps, even the size of the conspiracy it would take to keep hidden the truth of our earth, is even impossible for you to believe? Until you offer up a rational, reasonable, explanation of why this great conspiracy could be carried forth, and how it was pulled off, we are getting nothing from you except for you claim. And such an extraordinary claim and position needs more than what you have to offer. Which was really, nothing, in regards to my question.

    So, the maps of our globe, with our longitude and lattitude, have never been used to navigate our globe? Then why did we create maps? Just to look at as something pretty? Well, they were used for navigation of a globe, that is why. I think we learned this in geography in the 5th grade, back in the 50s when I attended public school.

    In conclusion, the odds against a worldwide conspiracy are so great, astronomical, as to be for all practical purposes impossible. Yet you will not address this, and IMO, for good reason. It would be so difficult to do so and retain any creds. For never has humanity ever been agreement on much of anything, and yet we must believe that they agreed on this? But if so, for what motive? I cannot even get a motive from you. It isn't asking too much, surely.

    Yet based on exactly the same information and a somewhat better understanding of human nature I seriously doubt a rational God would place a set creatures as prone to hubris and egocentrism as human beings in any place that might even further exacerbate those unlovely traits

    Do you have a child of your own? If so you should have a good idea of how God feels about His children.

    If the earth is flat how thick is it?
    where do volcanoes come from?
    why is it that no matter what direction. I travel in as long as I travel in a 'strait' line I come back where I started? What's on the other side?

    You realize you can drive around your block, but your block is not a sphere...you realize that right?

    They don't even know what's below the alleged ball earth. The deepest man has been is 8 miles, and according to those who did it, something is there they can't get beyond.

    Why does the earth have to be a ball, to have volcanoes?

    Space as you believe it to be (because that's all you can do is picture it in your imagination), is nowhere near what you think. We are only going so high, and so far, before we run into "the ends of the earth".

    of course I can drive around the block but not without turning. However if I climb aboard a plain in new York and fly due east without turning I wind back of New York if the earth is flat that's not possible.

    You have never done such a thing, for it is impossible. You will have to turn numerous times, or you'll find yourself jumping out of the plane. Sooner or later, your going to need fuel.

    Yes, which is something you have never done. Yet you sit there claiming not only you can, but have. Why don't you do it, and record it, than post it here or anywhere. If you never done it, had you you know you can?

    In regards to the heliocentric model, if the stars in the southern and northern hemisphere rotate in different directions, and this is proof of a ball earth, why doesn't the same occur, with the sun?

    It does. When facing north in the northern hemisphere, the Sun and stars rise from the east on your right and they circle the north pole counterclockwise. When facing south in the southern hemisphere, the Sun and stars rise from the east on your left and they circle the south pole clockwise.

    In May when the Arctic has 24 hrs a day of sunlight, the Sun circles Polaris CCW same as the stars. In December when the Antarctic has 24 hrs a day of sunlight, the Sun circles the south pole CW same as the stars do.

    There's no FE explanation for this. If you have one, let's hear it. ;)
