TAKING THE MICKEY OUT OF THE SPHERICAL EARTH ‘SCIENCE’!
(YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN BLIND! But whatever you read hereafter, will be used against you in the court of conscience). 😉 😛
If you laugh out loud the moment you hear “FLAT EARTH”, then you are nothing more than a BLIND BELIEVER of Greek Mythology (also called “Modern Science”)!!! So, sober up!
Just imagine this: the same scientists who make you believe that massive amounts of water can hold itself up below a globe earth, with the help of some mysterious energy called “Gravity”, makes you wonder in disbelief how water would not fall off of a flat earth!!!! Just ask any kid what is easier to believe, THAT A FLAT DISC COULD HOLD WATER ON IT OR A ROUND BALL COULD HOLD WATER UNDER IT (that mysterious ‘ENERGY’ notwithstanding)??????!!!!!!!!!
The difference between a “true” scientist and a pretentious one is that, when a true scientist is presented with a claim contrary to his existing conclusions, he would consider it seriously and research it sincerely, because a true scientist knows that there is a whole lot out there that he really does not know! But a pretentious ‘scientist’ will immediately pounce on you, abuse you verbally and attack you personally, trying to belittle you in the hope that your message is also belittled in the process, without realizing that he is actually showcasing the same insecurities showcased by a blind follower of religion!
I need to say this here: “LACK OF PROOF FOR SOMETHING IS NOT A PROOF IN ITSELF FOR ANYTHING”! So when a ‘scientist’ tells you “Its not scientifically proved”, it does not mean “it is not true” (though that is what he expects you to conclude). It only means that it has not been researched or studied yet by those poor Scientists – for lack of ability or possibility!! So, if you dont want to continue as a blind follower of Greek-mythology rooted “modern science”, then just open your eyes and start using your brains (it wont hurt; I promise)!
EXPOSING THE ‘UNDERBELLY’ OF THE GLOBE EARTH!

“The earliest reliably documented mention of the spherical Earth concept dates from around the 6th century BC when it appeared in ancient Greek philosophy but remained a matter of speculation until the 3rd century BC, when Hellenistic astronomy established the spherical shape of the Earth as a physical given.
Though the earliest written mention of a spherical Earth comes from ancient Greek sources, there is no account of how the sphericity of the Earth was discovered. A plausible explanation is that it was “the experience of travellers that suggested such an explanation for the variation in the observable altitude and the change in the area of circumpolar stars. A practical demonstration of Earth’s sphericity was achieved by Ferdinand Magellan and Juan Sebastián Elcano‘s expedition’s circumnavigation (1519−1522).
Early Greek philosophers alluded to a spherical Earth, though with some ambiguity. Pythagoras (6th century BC) was among those said to have originated the idea. Plato (427–347 BC) also taught his students that Earth was a sphere though he offered no justifications. “My conviction is that the Earth is a round body in the centre of the heavens, and therefore has no need of air or of any similar force to be a support”, he wrote.
Aristotle (384-322 BC) was Plato’s prize student and “the mind of the school”. Aristotle observed “there are starts seen in Egypt and [….] Cyprus, which are not seen in the northerly regions”. Since this could only happen on a curved surface, he too ‘believed’ Earth was a sphere “of no great size”. It was Eratosthenes, a Greek astronomer from Hellenistic Libya (276-194 BC), who estimated Earth’s circumference around 240 BC.
From its Greek origins, the idea of a spherical earth, along with much of Greek astronomical thought, slowly spread across the globe and ultimately became the adopted view in all major astronomical traditions. In the West, the idea came to the Romans through the lengthy process of cross-fertilization with Hellenistic civilization”. (Data source: Wikipedia)
WHAT THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO THINK:
1) The launch of the first human-made object to orbit Earth was by the Soviet Union’s Sputnik 1, on 4 October 1957, and the first claim to Moon landing was by the American Apollo 11 mission on 20 July 1969!
2) The earliest known working telescopes appeared in the Netherlands in 1608. Galileo used one of these in 1609. The Ritchey-Chretien variant of Cassegrain reflector was invented around 1910, and widely adopted only after 1950; many modern telescopes including the Hubble Space Telescope use this design. (I don’t need to mention here that you cannot see the shape of earth with a telescope on the earth)!!!
Compare these with the fact that the earliest mention of a spherical Earth dates back to the 6th century BC, and the first attempts to ‘scientifically’ prove Earth’s sphericity were made way back in 1519−1522!!!! How audaciously stupid, when the earliest known telescope appeared only in 1608 and the first claim to space travel was made only in 1957!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How can any attempt to establish the shape of the earth, before someone or something could actually fly out of the earth’s atmosphere, far enough to turn around and see the whole earth, be asserted as a “scientific fact” when its very clearly nothing more than just an assumption??!!! How can there be any “science” behind such mythological assumptions??? What ‘holier’ ground do these ‘globe-al’ scientists claim to have to enforce their ‘blind beliefs’ on others as irrefutable “facts”??!!
DEAR BLIND FOLLOWERS OF SCIENCE:
The Heliocentric belief of the Solar System was NOT based on any ‘scientific’ evidences, in the first place, but was purported by the Greeks who worshiped the sun god HELIO and wanted to make people accept the Sun as the center of it all, with everything else just revolving around it! This belief was later embraced by the Romans, integrated into their official religion, Christianity, and taught around the world through their educational institutes!
It is very clear from the above Facts that the sphericity of the earth was not theorized based on any ‘scientific’ evidence but merely on the mythological beliefs of the Greek. It need not be highlighted here that even in 2017 AD, there are no REAL, solid evidences of a globe earth, apart from that ONE nicely Photoshoped image of a globe in perfect circle, showing an out of proportion continent of Africa and a rich blue ocean, when even an amateur photographer would have taken atleast 100 HD shots each day!! A total disaster for a theory purported way back in the 6th Century BC!!!
FOR THE KIND ATTENTION OF BIBLE BELIEVERS:
In the book of Job 38:11-14, it is written that the dayspring is caused to know its place so it can take hold of the ends of the earth and that the ends of the earth, is turned as clay to the seal! The Hebrew word “chotham” used there for “seal” means “signature seal” or “signet” used by kings or authorities.
So THAT, my dear ‘believers’, is the real shape of the Earth!

In the book of Isaiah 40:22 it says, “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth”. The Hebrew word used here for “circle” is “chûg” and means “a circle, circuit, compassive”. This is not the same word used to refer a globe or a ball. In chapter 22:18 of the same book it is written, “He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball”. The Hebrew word for “ball” here is “dûr” and means “a circle, ball or pile: – turn, round about”.

THE NORTH POLE IN THE BIBLE
Job 26:7 – “He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing. 10 He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end”. “Until the day and night come to an end” could also mean that ‘where the day and night comes to an end’. In other words, Day and Night, caused by the rotation of the Sun above the circle of the earth, is limited within the “bounds (walls of ice)” placed around the earth. Interestingly, the Bible DOES NOT talk about the South Pole!!!
ISNT THE SUN AND THE MOON ROUND?
Before i leave the globe-earthers flat, let me address one major ‘proof’ these blind globe-believers keep throwing at you… they say that since the Sun, Moon and the other Planets that you can see are Round, the earth should also be ROUND! Well, i fall flat at the feet of such ‘scientific’ proofs. It leaves me numb with its depth of thought! Sighhh!!!
Just take a good look at this pic. To say that the earth should also be round because the planets around it are round, is like saying that the Christmas Tree should be round because all the balls hanging around it are round!! (Even a 5 year old will cry in shame at such logic)! 😀 😀
Even otherwise, are the stars that we see in the night, round? Are the asteroids and comets that fly by the earth, round? Dont they zoom through the space inspite of their irregular shape?? More interestingly, are the Sun and Moon spherical or oval in shape?????? So whats the big deal with the shape???
Be Enlightened: The Earth IS the centre of this planetary group. The Sun and Moon are made for the earth, to revolve over it to manipulate seasons. And the Planets are made to revolve around the earth to influence its electro-magnetic fields. Hence the circular shape to enhance their motion.
FALLING OFF OF THE EDGE
Many people ask, if the earth was flat, wont we all just fall off the edge? Well, that question arises because of the misconception about how the edge is.
Recently, the mission to search for the mysteriously missing MH370 was called off citing that the area of the Ocean being searched was too vast and dangerous. With all the modern technology that we posses, this earth is still vast and unreachable!
Do you know that individuals are not allowed to go to “South Pole”? You need permission from the military (of few countries) that controls the area. Why is the South Pole so protected and secretive?
FLYING ‘ABOVE’ THE SOUTH POLE
Once a Scientists friend of mine started arguing with me about the shape of the earth, obviously defending its ‘globeness’. I told him to do a small experiment and get back to me. He hasnt got back about the experiment yet! All i asked him to do was to take a ‘Globe’ and place a miniature plane on NZ and fly the plane over the South Pole towards Argentina. I asked him to pause when the Plane is right ‘above’ the Pole and just check the position of the Plane. Scientists would immediately say that because of gravity we wont feel we are upside down. But the Wise would note that i had not mentioned about people inside the Plane….
…I just wanted you to note the position of the Plane!!!! Can a passenger aircraft fly upside down for so long, without any technical problems???
(I am seriously loving this childish concept of globe earth!!! It sure is a lot more fun than the Flat earth)!!!! 😀 😀
A READER’S ‘INTELLIGENT’ REMARK:
A reader by the name “Whatever never curves?” said: “Guessing you’ve never heard of the term ‘meniscus’ then! This article is a joke.”
(Pic source: http://www.sciencesource.com)
My Simple Response to him/her (or other) was: “Meniscus can happen only when water is covered on all sides with a ‘wall’ (curvature caused by surface tension). You are reiterating my point, my friend!!! Still Blind, huh??”
I hope by now you would have realised that Modern Science (in General and Globe Earth belief in particular) is just another Religion that has its roots in Greek Mythology; Camouflaged as anti-religious, only to entrap the blind and the gullible.
