Question the Narrative | Flat Earth??

I’ve been wanting to include this topic in this series for awhile, but I’ve been hesitant because people get even angrier about this than the mask debate.

In the last several weeks, though, I have had so many questions and requests about this topic, I decided to put on my big girl pants and discuss the gigantic elephant in the room.

  1. The Bible states that the Earth is a sphere. This nation, (or world for that matter), is no longer a Christian nation! It is so disgusting how far away from the scriptures we have become. “Having a form of Godly devotion but proving false to its power.” Our government is so deceptive that I cringe and scrutinize the history that I teach. Everything is a lie so you have to dig to find the truth. This is what I’m going to teach/read to my son as history class:

    Thank you, Shelly for all that you do. My best to you and your family.

  2. Hi Shelly
    Good for you for taking on a subject of such controversy!! This came up in our family about two years ago. After looking at the various arguments, I’m now firmly back in the sphere camp.
    Here are some points for you and your readers to consider:
    1. Foucault’s Pendulum is ample evidence that the earth is a rotating sphere.
    2. Long-range snipers have to take the earth’s rotation into account: when they shoot westwards, the target rises towards them, and when they shoot eastwards, the target drops away from them.
    3. Eratosthenes calculated the circumference of the earth centuries before Christ.
    4. The globe used by Universal Studios could easily have been drawn up by skilled cartographers, using geometry to place everything correctly.
    5. If the earth is indeed flat, then flight times and routes make zero sense. It takes about as long to fly from Perth, Australia to Johannesburg, RSA as it does to fly from Wellington, NZ to Santiago, Chile. Yet on a flat-earth map the latter distance is far greater. Also, it takes twice as long to fly from NZ to Amsterdam as it does to fly from NZ to Los Angeles. Yet on a flat-earth map the distances are about the same.
    6. Re the concept of a the heavens being solid: that notion first comes from the Septuagint, which translates ‘raqiya’ as ‘stereoma’ — read about it here: https://answersingenesis.org/contradictions-in-the-bible/underneath-a-solid-sky/
    7. Lastly, staying with Answers In Genesis, here’s a really good discussion on the topic: https://answersingenesis.org/astronomy/earth/falling-flat-earth/
    Warm regards

    1. Hi Erica! Thanks for taking the time to comment. Eric Dubay actually came out with an excellent video debunking Foucalt’s pendulum. I also saw one debunking the Coriolis effect, but I don’t remember who did that one, tbh. The Eratosthenes experiment would also work if the sun were much smaller and closer, which is what flat earthers believe. Mark Sargent has an excellent video on how flight paths make more sense on the Azimuthal equidistant map (flat earth). Towards the end of 2017, YouTube began burying “truther” videos, so now it’s virtually impossible to find them. Even if you type in the exact name of the video, you have to scroll through hundreds of videos to find them. As a result, it’s super easy to find videos debunking flat earth, but videos that are scientifically sound and support the idea of a flat earth are hidden. You have to wonder why are they hiding it? That’s what interests me the most about it. 🤔 Have a good day!
