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 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.
