"Q: Why has no-one taken a photo of the Earth that proves it is flat?

A: The government prevents people from getting close enough to the Ice Wall to take a picture."- The Flat Earth Society

"Q: Why do you guys believe the Earth is flat?

A: Well, it looks that way up close."- The Flat Earth Society[1]

What the world looks like according to Flat Earthers, Notice the amount of distortion.

The Flat earth society compromises of a small group of right-wing Christian conservatives who deny facts if even they were undoubtedly proven to them.


If you read the flat earth society and start reading the reasons why they think the earth is flat and their reasonings behind why there is a "conspiracy" hiding the truth, the explanations become increasingly more bizarre the more you read into it. They state that they can't be sure of the governments motives for the conspiracy, but they state that they thinks it’s probably for monetary reasons, somehow. They also state that there are "ice guards" guarding the "ice wall" that circles the earth. [2] And somehow none of them ever speaks up.

According to the flat earth society the earth is disk shaped with a diameter of about 24,900 miles (40,000 km) and a circumference of 78,225 miles {126,000 km}. The sun and moon are both discs about 32 miles (52 km) in diameter and are about 3,000 miles (4,800 km) above the Earth, and the stars about 100 miles (160 km) above the sun and moon. Apparently the Earth is accelerating upward at a rate of 9.8 m/s², thereby simulating gravity. They believe that sun rises and sets are just the sun going farther away and an effect of perspective. However, as anyone can attest, the sun does not appear smaller when it is near the horizon.

Also judging by the Flat Earth Society map of the world Australia is apparently the size of most of Asia.

The Flat Earth Society have their own website. Artificial satellites orbiting the spherical Earth transmit the misinformation on their website worldwide. Do they have an explanation why the satellites don’t fall down or why the moon doesn’t fall down? Newtonian dynamics explains it. Their system doesn’t.
