I just spent the last 10 hours reading through this.
I don't even know where to begin.
Paul - You obviously don't have parents, I'm not implying it's because you are stupid - I actually think you are very intelligent - but because if you had parents they would have drowned you long ago.
Chinahand - I respect you greatly, not just because of your knowledge but because you can translate that knowledge into easily digested information (a sign of true intelligence in my humble opinion).
Gerry - Your entire argument has hinged on the belief that there is a world wide conspiracy (because reasons!). Stop trying to debate science, you know half of what you think you know and half of what you know is wrong.
Actually Gerry I do know your reasoning. 'They' want to remove the idea of a higher power from the public conscience in order to make us give up 'god-given' rights < DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE
1: It would be easier to simply change religion to fit your needs (happens throughout history).
2: You are suggesting a flat Earth means God is real (implying that a flat Earth can only function through divine intervention and science is irrelevant, so this entire debate on scientific grounds is a farce).
3: Religion is and always has been great at restricting personal freedoms.
4: You clearly had no intention of ever accepting or even attempting to understand the opposing view. Clear instructions have been provided - multiple times - how to self-prove the science of a sphere world, saying you will at some point (but never do) in a debate that has raged for a year makes you a lying, self-serving rat, just as bad as 'they', who you believe are conspiring against humanity.
Yes, I know it is bad etiquette to personally insult you but the way you guys have disrespected Chinahand, repeatedly, is foul.
Hey Paul, remember when I said I think you are very intelligent?
