After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth,
holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from
blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.
The wacky world of religion only requires one statement in God's inerrant word (Revel 7:1) to eradicate any scientific knowledge of reality.
For those real morons who believe in a flat earth, how do they explain that it's daytime in New York City and nighttime in Bejing, China. How do they explain winters versus summers in different countries at different times of the year. In fact, the concept of a year and seasons is based on the Earth's angular (23.5 degrees) rotation around the sun at an angle.
There is no mention anywhere in the bible that the Earth may be spherical even though observers of lunar eclipses would see a round shadow crossing.
The following link shows where night, day, moon and sun are:
The argument for the flat earth is:
Presenting the world as a sphere, and presenting it as one of the trillions of stars and planets in the universe, devalues humans, just like the theories of evolution does. Thanks to this systemic religion of science, life is deprived of its meaning. This leads people to become the slaves of the capitalist system (versus God or Allah).
The Only Thing Flat-Earthers Fear..... Is Sphere Itself.
Flat earth believers are not real. It's just a conspiracy to throw everyone off the fact that the earth is hollow and its main entrance by Antartica is restricted by icewalls and jointly controlled by Nazis and aliens.
If someone has a crazy belief and comments on it off hand, that's one thing. On a life's mission to share the news that there is a major conspiracy and we're all brained washed is another.
"I'm pretty sure the earth is flat." vs. "Look at all these memes, and pictures taken with a Nikon DLSR, all planets are actually stars being misrepresented by CGI, and can't prove gravity, and look at the horizon from an airplane IT'S A STRAIGHT LINE!" with a crowd of people gathering around on social media, "Wow, I can't believe I never looked into this. This is amazing."
It's not so much someone believing a crazy thing, but the hysteria that spreads. One person could just have a tendency to believe conspiracies, while another might be in a weakened state looking for meaning to cling onto after something like addiction has completely shaken their perception of self. Someone comes along with these crazy beliefs and by showing interest they're offered a metaphorical seat at the table, giving them a sense of belonging. Their reward system starts to fire up as they start to replace religion and pseudoscience in place of their initial addiction, rather than actually getting to the root of their issues and making true human connections. They now lack the ability to find harmony within the world we all enjoy, find peace among some stable truths. Instead their basis of all reasoning, understanding, and identity is wrapped up in falsehoods, diminishing the possible network they could be building, because once they start rattling off their beliefs the majority of people are going to revolt and disengage.
It's not just some having certain beliefs, but indoctrinating others who need acceptance so badly they'll nod in agreement with anything that has any sort of foundation. It makes me really sad and angry.
People believe in a flat earth for two reasons: they are scientifically illiterate, and they are mentally slow.
The issue is important for distinguishing the individual capabilities among members of the human race. Thus, belief in a flat earth necessarily disqualifies one from entry into any number of occupations involving mental exertion and responsibility.
Their utility to science is limited to serving as test subjects for cosmetics and pharmaceutical concerns and weapons testing.
Flat Earthers described their conversion as a quasi-religious experience, where one day they "took the red pill" and realized the truth that the rest of us have been blind to for our entire lives as a result of our miseducation and indoctrination - the Earth is flat.
Christians would all be flat earthers if they actually read and followed the Bible ...
As an ex-Christian I can't believe I used to follow the Bible and its ludicrous claims. If Christians actually read and followed the Bible they would all believe the earth is flat. I'll start listing the verses to support my claims. There's a lot of them so buckle your seatbelts.
The Bible claims the earth is a disk (Isaiah 40:22 and Job 38:13-14). The Bible claims the earth can be measured in a line not a curve (Job 38:4-5). The Bible claims water is straight and not curved (Job 37:10). The Bible claims the earth is fixed and not movable (Psalm 33:9, Psalm 93:1, Psalm 96:10, Psalm 104:5, Psalm 104:5, Psalm 119:89-90, Isaiah 45:18, Zachariah 1:11, 1 Chronicles 16:30). The Bible claims that the earth is suspended by pillars and hangs on nothing (1 Samual 2:8, Job 9:8, Job 26:7, Psalm 75:3, 2 Peter 3:5).
The Bible claims the earth is a flat surface or a face (Genesis 1:29, 6:1, 6:7, 7:3-4,8:9,11:8-9, 41:56, Exodus 33:16, Numbers 12:3) ... I have like 20 more of these.
The Bible claims the earth has ends (Deuteronomy 28:49, 28:64, 33:17, Samuel 2:10, Acts 13:47 ... . I have 15+ more of these). The Bible claims the earth has corners (Isaiah 11:12, Revelation 7:1). The Bible claims the sun moves not the earth (I have Genesis 15:12, 15:17, 19:23, 32:31, Matthews 5:45, Mark 16:2, Ephesians 4:26, and James 1:11.
I have too many other verses to type and my fingers are getting sore so I will just summarize now. The Bible claims the sun stops moving (4x), the moon has its own light (9x) along with many other absurd claims.
The Bible claims Gods word is always true (Jeremiah 42:5, Revelation 3:14, 19:11, 21:5 and 22:6). Seems like "God" really knows nothing about the universe he supposedly made. I'm so glad I no longer follow a book that directly contradicts all known astronomy and science.
