Here are some other issues that flat earthers cannot deal with:

1. The Foucault pendulum

2. The Coriolis effect

3. Libration of the Moon

4. Shadows of mountains are pointed even if they have flat tops. Turns out that won't happen on a flat Earth.

I have a suspision that the majority of flat earthers would never have heard of the first three anyway. 

Edit: We did it. Page 11. Take that ChrLzs. :P

The problem with the Coriolis effect and the Foucault pendulum is that the effect is mirrored about the equator. That means that something changes part way across the disk. That's hard to work out.

Do hurricanes cross the equator? Apparently not, but it is not impossible.

Explain that flat earthers!

if the Earth was flat, why do we have the North and South poles?

We need the poles in order to have holes through which to access the Hollow Earth ........ :D

In fact, doesn't the Hollow Earth prove that the Earth is flat?   How else would you be able to go through a hole at the North Pole and emerge into a different world inhabited by enlightened beings and dinosaurs and Nazis, unless that world were the underside of a Flat Earth?

Answer that, round-worlders :D:P

The south pole is fake according to flat earthers.

Since I follow F1, I recognised the name but the relevance? That has me beat. Perhaps he is a flattie on the side. I don't know.

Let me rephrase the question:

If the Earth is flat, why does literally everything suggest otherwise???

5. Navigation via the North Star. This is only possible on a curved surface.

Because the coverup is just that good. Only the select few are able to see through it. 

I'm only partly kidding here, because that is pretty much how the flat earthers think. 

If the World really was flat why would anyone try to suppress it ? I don't really get that.

You ask what the motivation would be to cover-up a flat earth.

Some of the excuses I have seen in the past

- Illuminati mind control

- Extract buckets of loot from the masses under the guise of the so-called "space programs".

- Keep the human cattle in their ignorant pens.

How any of that motivates  the conspirators is anyone's guess.

How would the world's population react if they discovered th awful, awful,.truth ......?    The world is nothing more than a giant snowdome, lying half forgotten on the shelf at the back of a cupboard in an aging alien granny's bedroom ......  :w00t:

For that matter, how is it that the Pole Star is only visible to people living north of the equator? If the Earth is flat everyone should be able to see the Pole Star.

There is one school of thought that thinks much along those lines. According to this theory, there is indeed a giant dome over the earth and spaceflight is impossible because if it went beyond a certain height, it would hit the glass ceiling (literal, not metaphorical).

They made up something called "the law of perspective" to explain why objects like the sun disappear completely from the sky. Total BS obviously.

He's overseeing their drivers, Ricciardo - an Australian - and Verstappen - a Dutchman.

Noooooooooooo.. 00000 ...00ooooooooooooo.

 

Right, well .... I'll just change the goalposts in such a way that I cannot be disputed - take a look at the content of the last few pages (if not the entire thread..) - given that normally scientific, level-headed posters are vomithrowing up silly joke posts that are effectively contentless, to respond to the even sillier posts from trolflat earth proponents, would you not agree that the effective size of this thread is barely 3-4 pages?

I win!  And I suspect closure is imminent...........5.....4....

Ahahah!  Clearly this is a fake argument.  Here in Orstrayliah we can't see no North Star.

Oh wait, that disproves flat earth, too..

Has anyone thought that the explanation might be very simple? The earth is flat, and Australia is on the other side of it! It's quite simple really. Don't ask me how the water and the kangaroos and stuff* don't fall off, it's probably Gravity and stuff.

* assuming they're not fake of course
