    If you cannot provide conclusive video evidence to convince Dade County, then the earth is not round. Simple as that.
    The problem is no matter what video I post, he’ll have some reason why it doesn’t count (it’s fake, lying, etc.). Short of him actually going to the South Pole he’ll never believe it (and even then, he probably still won’t).

    But just in case he is reasonable, here’s an entire tour of the South Pole research station:

    I knew PSD had some folks like that in it because of previous conversations on these kinds of topics, but every time something like this gets brought up, I'm stunned at that level of arrogance and ignorance from people I've talked sports with online for years.
    Precisely. The woke crowd that could barely pass HS biology class do some "research" (and I use that term loosely to say the least) and they disregard centuries worth of scientific research on the topic. The notion that there is some massive conspiracy about the Earth being a sphere is just laughable. Why would anyone do that? What possible benefit would there be to "covering up" the shape of the Earth!?!?

    lol

    You know many people have been to the South Pole right? The first person to make it to the South Pole did so in 1911.

    There's a freaking Research installation at the South Pole:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amunds...h_Pole_Station
    So you can understand what I am talking about.

    Full exploration of the so called south pole. When Richard E byrd https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...ichard+e+byrd+

    was ordered to check out that terrain BUT there is a reason why he was exploring the so called south pole (it would be cool to search out why).

    There are certain areas of the so called south pole that you can vacation to, but full exploration requires permission at this stage of the game. The ones that are granted this permission is apart of the game or no threat.

    https://www.nytimes.com/1985/10/20/u...ic-treaty.html

    https://2009-2017.state.gov/document...tion/30610.pdf

    They classify a majority of the terrain under https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antarc...Protected_Area


    The Antarctic Treaty System
    The Antarctic Treaty System comprises the Treaty itself and a number of related agreements. It also includes a range of organisations that contribute to the work of the decision-making forums.

    In addition to the related agreements (described below), the Treaty System includes the recommendations, measures, decisions and resolutions of the Consultative Meetings relating to matters such as:

    scientific cooperation;
    protection of the Antarctic environment;
    conservation of plants and animals;
    preservation of historic sites;
    designation and management of protected areas;
    management of tourism;
    information exchange;
    collection of meteorological data;
    hydrographic charting;
    logistic cooperation; and
    communications and safety.
    The Treaty Parties have put in place rules relating to specific issues. The development of these agreements has allowed the implementation, with greater precision, of legally binding provisions for the regulation of activities in Antarctica.

    Long story short after operation fish bowl, a world treaty was signed to the extent that no country, corporation, or individual can setup shop; but of course something happened in between this event; fake moon landing. Do some research on what the Russian were doing around this time.

    I'll check out what you posted for sure.

    Christopher Columbus wasn't sailing around the world to see if it was flat, he was looking for a shorter route to India to trade for their spices (hence why he called Native Americans Indians upon arrival).
    Here is one of the real reason why Columbus sailed to Arsareth

    https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...used+2+esdras+

    When he arrived, of course he meet and spoke to the descendants of 1- of the tribes of Israel. Not saying all the people that was on the Islands and so called North & South America were Israelites.

    Just to let you know, most of the so called blacks was already on this side, but thats another story for another day. Look into it. Dark skin natives & in Mexico Los Lunas/Lumas Decalogue Stone.

    10 Commandments in Hebrew

    Read 2nd Esdras 13:40-45

    EDIT***

    Also please see were I stand on flat earth. What does Columbus have to do with this.

    too much respecter of persons going on here.

    Ok

    But your attitude already points to that your mind is already made up. So like i have stated this info is for someone that is willing to look into it.

    I feel the same way. You and the other poster seem really high strong over this topic, to the point that you are trying to insult me, and if you could you would go all out.

    It wouldn't change anything, but dear goodness. Any outside person looking in, can attest to this.

    But I'm doing this for the posters that never knew & would like to see whats up.

    Well, we can go article for article, but what I want from them is to look into it thats all.

    From the so called astronauts in space (look at some videos on Nasa website and compare them to videos of people trying to disprove the validity of those same videos); to Airline flight logs when traveling to a particular country, why the dead zone...etc

    Just look at both sides. Look up some so called scientist that joined together saying the planet doesn't rotate/spin. I go by scripture though, but at least I looked at all sides.

    If you pull a book/article, find another person with that same scholastic degree or greater refuting that text. Both sides will provide their version of what the researched as truth.

    Trying to convince a flat Earther that the Earth is round is like trying to convince James Harden to stop dribbling the basketball on offensive possessions. If you keep doing it he's going to try and get rid of you.

    I actually have a really good comparison for James Harden. Dominique Wilkins.

    Insanely talented on offence but so bad on defence that it kept his teams from ever sniffing success. I'm not saying Dominique was a great 3pt shooter. Just that he was a dominant and flashy offensive player who had the ball in his hands a lot.
