    From the above article:



    All that would be necessary to disprove the FET would be to take a plane ride across Antartica . . . but of course, they would come up with a pseudo-explanation of why that appeared to happen.

    Logic simply does not work with them.
    Put one of those boneheads on a plane in Cape Town, and make a pit stop in Antarctica to refuel. Then keep on going, and he'll find that there is no ice wall barrier anywhere, let alone deep space, to block that plane from going any further. The plane will land safely in the Falkland Islands. <:-P

    Next they'll be telling us that the Earth is the center of the universe.

    The Earth cannot be flat. If it were, cats would have knocked everything off of it by now.

    Aye! How many of the Apollo orbiter astronauts are still alive? Let one of those funny-farm candidates ask them, and they'll tell the sicko that the Earth is definitely not flat. If it were flat, then the Moon must be flat as well, and so is the Sun. What would that make the rings around Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune? <:-/

    just dont tell me the moon is also flat.

    speaking of flat earthers.. I do recall the stereographic projection from my undergraduate complex analysis days...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereographic_projection


    I dont want to give them too much credit but could these flat earthers be trying to do something fun?..

    If they are then they are going to have to explain how they can get to the north or south pole in a finite amount of time. Let me guess, they have a rube-goldberg-like explanation for why time dilates as they get closer to the north pole.

    I think we need to recall that just about any model can be made to work. It is the simplicity of one model relative to another that makes it a preferred model.

    They are crazy only in that, like a person that lives a sheltered life playing video games and eating food that others prepared for them, they dont need models to be better in any real way.Of course we should not take them seriously, because they have no serious stake in anything except their bellies.
