Observation Flat Earth ~ September 13, 2018

The flat earth theory must be the most talked about and requested videos for me to make.

I myself have tried to stay away from this particular subject, because I noticed a huge division in truth seekers, since the flat Earth subject became popular again, and also when Donald Trump became president of the United States.

And so, I’ve been on the fence with this subject for many years, and I always say when asked… I would not be surprised either way if it was flat or round.

After years of watching all kinds of flat Earth videos, I noticed that the flat Earth population is increasing rapidly and have presented strong evidence supporting their theory, while the round earthers just seem to attack the credibility or sanity of the individual creating the video without really presenting any real evidence of their own.

Most of them just regurgitate what they have already learned in school. The same school that still teaches us that Cristopher Columbus discovered America, among many other events in our history that we know now not to be true.

Most of us have learned through our own research that our history is clearly very shady to say the least, and history has been rewritten many times.

Some scientists today are skeptical of the idea that the Earth is round, because even though it is presented as a truth, there is no unquestionable scientific evidence that is round.

Everything on which science bases itself, are only evidences, and evidences are not proofs.

The idea that the earth is a flat disk or plane, first comes from most ancient cultures, including Egypt and Greece, until the classical period.

In India they believed in the flat Earth plane until the Gupta period, in early centuries AD, and China believed this as well until the 17th century.

The famous “Flat Earth” Flammarion engraving from (1888) depicts a traveler who arrives at the edge of a flat Earth and sticks his head through the firmament.

In early Mesopotamian mythology, the world was portrayed as a flat disk floating in the ocean with a hemispherical sky-dome above, and this forms the premise for early world maps like those of Anaximander and Hecataeus of Miletus.

Other speculations on the shape of Earth include a seven-layered ziggurat or cosmic mountain, alluded to in the Avesta and ancient Persian writings (see seven climes).

In the modern era, flat Earth community are increasing quite rapidly, mostly by individuals using social media, and some celebrities, such as Shaquille O’Neil, B.o.B, and Kyrie Irving.

Spherical Earth

The earliest documented mention of the spherical Earth concept dates back from around the 6th century BC when it appeared in ancient Greek philosophy with Pythagoras, and later Aristotle and Euclid — wrote about the Earth as a sphere but remained a matter of speculation until the 3rd century BC.

It is said that Aristotle provided evidence for the spherical shape of the Earth on empirical grounds, around 330 BC.

Ptolemy wrote “Geography” at the height of the Roman Empire, 1,300 years before Columbus sailed, and considered the idea of a round planet.

The spherical Earth gradually began to spread beyond the Hellenistic world from then on, and the concept of a spherical Earth replaced earlier beliefs in a flat Earth. I

n 1543 Nicolaus Copernicus purposed the first Heliocentric model of the universe.
