(Before It's News)





According to Wikipedia, modern Flat Earth societies have been around since 1816, which was started by Samual Rothbotham.


Flat Earther’s believe in the following:


  1. Earth’s gravity is an illusion, they say. Objects do not accelerate downward; instead, the disc of Earth accelerates upward at 32 feet per second squared (9.8 meters per second squared), driven up by a mysterious force called dark energy.
  2. There are no such things as satellites. (They are towers).
  3. That Earth is a disc with the Arctic Circle in the center and Antarctica surrounds the Earth with a 150-foot-tall wall of ice, around the rim.
  4. The sun and moon are spheres measuring 32 miles (51 kilometers) that move in circles 3,000 miles
  5. Stars, they say, move in a plane 3,100 miles up.
  6. Other planets are flat, too, or don’t exist, or Earth isn’t a planet. (Main points of disagreement between Flat Earthers).
  7. NASA fakes everything.
  8. Some flat earthers say the Moon is either a flat disc, a hologram, projection, or a light in the sky

Earth is indeed round


Proofs that the Earth is indeed round or at least close to it. It is a bit chubby at the center. 


Shadows & Sticks


If you stick a stick in the [sticky] ground, it will produce a shadow. The shadow moves as time passes (which is the principle for ancient Shadow Clocks). If the world had been flat, then two sticks in different locations would produce the same shadow. The do not because the earth is round and not flat. Eratosthenes used this principle to calculate the circumference of the Earth quite accurately.


“A Greek astronomer by the name of Eratosthenes clearly showed Earth was round just over 2,000 years ago. He realized that rays of sunlight are hitting Earth at the same degree, but because Earth has a curvature, the length of shadows at different locations across Earth aren’t the same.

By calculating this shadow length change between two cities – Alexandria and Syene – he gave an estimate for the circumference of the Earth: 46,620 kilometers (28,970 miles), which is only 16 percent larger than the actual value.” – source:


“If the Earth were flat, you could drive two sticks into the ground at any place on Earth, and the shadows those sticks would make would be the same length. (Because the Sun is so far away from Earth, its incoming rays can be considered parallel).

Place a stick in the ground on a sunny day, then measure the length of the shadow. At the same time, call a friend who is at least a few miles away from you and tell them to do the same. The lengths you measure will be different! The curvature of a spherical Earth means that sunrays will hit each stick differently if they are far enough apart. Measuring shadows like that is how Greek astronomer Eratosthenes very nearly calculated the exact circumference of the Earth in…250 B.C.” —


 Proving the Earth is not Flat – Part 1 – The Horizon


  • Since the Earth is so big, you are not going to see the curvature of the Earth from an airplane. You will have to go at a very high altitude to start seeing the curvature of the Earth.
  • Ships do disappear over the horizon due to the curvature of the earth.

                                             Earth’s Curve Horizon, Bulge, Drop, and Hidden Calculator

Toronto – viewed from Niagara on the Lake, New York at 30 miles away. CN Tower (1,815.4 feet tall).

**Refracted Hidden  = 377.22 feet. CN Tower is (1,815.4 feet tall). 

Superior Mirage – bends the light around the curve of the earth, which is caused by colder air below warmer air.

  • Chicago – At a distance of 60 miles from the shores of Lake Michigan, according to the calculator, 2,166 feet will be below the horizon. And most of the time it is hidden, unless those certain conditions which produce the superior mirage.
  • You can tell it’s a mirage, due to the distortions. Willis Tower is elongated, which shows that it is a mirage.

  • There are videos online that show that this building is dancing around, which indicates that it is a mirage.
  • Changing shapes and disappearing. 


  • **If the earth was flat, you would be able to see the buildings on any clear day and not when the conditions are right.

Proving the Earth is not Flat – Part 2 – The Stars


  • The Helio-Centric model always us to accurately predict lunar and solar eclipses, conjunctions, and planetary alignments, etc to the minute and second.
  • The Earth is tilted at 23.5 degrees all throughout it’s orbit around the sun, which causes seasons.
  • In the northern hemisphere, we can see the North Star (Polaris). Magnitude 1.86 – 2.13. The sky rotates counter-clockwise.
  • In the southern hemisphere, we can see Sigma Octantis (magnitude 5.42). The sky rotates clockwise.
  • **The smaller the magnitude the brighter star.

The Flat Earth Model does not work.




Circumpolar stars – is a star that, as viewed from a given latitude on Earth, never sets (that is, never disappears below the horizon), due to its proximity to one of the celestial poles.

  • Stars near the celestial equator change throughout the seasons.
  • Why do stars remain relatively in the same position if the earth is rotating on it’s axis and on a 23.5 degree tilt, revolving around the sun, and the galaxy…the answer is at the 14 minute mark.
  • Example Polaris 323 light years away and changes about 0.00000566 degrees in the sky in 6 months as the earth orbits the sun due to it’s immense distance away.

Star Trails, North & South Poles: How Do Flat-Earthers Explain Such Things?

You cannot have stars rotate counter-clockwise in the northern hemisphere and rotate clockwise in the southern hemisphere at the same time on the flat earth model. It is not possible.


Flat earthers believe there is no gravity. Instead, they believe that the disc of the earth is accelerating up at 32 feet per second squared driven up by a mysterious force called dark energy.


If this is true, then if you pointed a camera straight up at the northern hemisphere, time lapse photography would show something like this:

Proving the Earth is not Flat – Part 3 – The Moon

  • Everyone on earth sees the same phase of the moon in the sky. If the moon was really 3,000 miles away this would not be possible.

  • According to the flat earth model, those in Chile and those in America would see different features and phases of the moon by 90 degrees different from the other location. This is not the case. Everyone sees the same features and the same phases pretty much because it’s much further out.


  • In the flat earth model, the Full moon would be seen for the northern observer and about half full for the southern observer.

An alternative to the standard model of gravity if you don’t believe in the standard model is gravity in the Electric Universe.


Iridium Flares

An Iridium flare is a specific type of satellite flare (also known as satellite glint) made when the antennas of an Iridium communication satellite reflect sunlight directly onto the surface of the Earth.

‪TOP 10 REASONS Why We Know the Earth is Round​

10. All other planets are a globe.

9. Time Zones. It’s always daytime somewhere and nighttime somewhere else.  That can’t happen on a flat earth.

8. The Coriolis Effect. Free-moving things deflect to the right if you are north of the equator, left if you are south.

7. You can take a journey, applying only three 90 degree turns, and end up back where you started.  That is impossible on a flat earth.

6. You can measure the earth’s curvature, by measuring the shadow created by the Sun. By measuring two different places north/south of each other, you see that they have two different angles, you prove the earth is not flat.

5. Stars change going north or south. The constellations are upside down in the southern hemisphere as compared to the northern view.

4. Magellan navigated the Earth. He and others have traveled West until they ended up where they started.

3. The Horizon. Ships disappear as they move away, bottom first. On a flat earth, there would be no horizon to cause things to disappear.

2. Lunar Eclipses. The shadow of the Earth on the moon is curved.

1. Photographic Evidence. Not all images are from NASA.

‪What is the Coriolis Effect?​

Flat Earth Debunked… again.


Photographic Evidence: NOT NASA 



“At 70,000 feet, dark space can be clearly seen above the curving earth.”






“We climbed beyond 50,000ft and the curvature of the Earth was by now clearly visible, and the sky was a dark inky blue, with a thin sky blue strip visible below. It was very clear below with not too many clouds making the curvature very visible.”
