I heard thunder clapping and

I heard thunder clapping and then a loud voice yelling from atop the mountain. It frightened me so I hid under a big rock as the loud voice kept approaching closer and closer and louder and louder and then in the blink of an eye I saw.........that poor mountain goat didn't stand a chance...........or was that grandpa Higgly aka the old goat.

The moral of the story is that he/it flattened out the earth beneath him.

I'll believe the earth is

I'll believe the earth is flat when there is a witnessed event where someone or something falls of the edge. It hasn't happened yet, but if god is who they say he is, it shouldn't be problem for him.

When people fall of the edge

When people fall of the edge they cannot exactly be around to give witness testimony....

I wasn't suggesting the one

I wasn't suggesting the one who falls off give testimony, I'll gladly push someone off and give testimony. Any one want to volunteer?

...*raising hand high*... *jumping up and down excitedly*.... Oo-oo-oo!!! Me-me-me!!!... I even have my own parachute! You are paying for the transportation to get us there, though..... *checking maps*.... Now then, to find a good landing spot after I go over the edge. Suggestions, anybody?

@ TM & Stuffin

No NO..PICK ME! Lets set up a Bungy arrangement and jump off the edge! Whoo eye to eye with those ginormous elephants! Boooooing........
I mean what could go wrong...oh wait...it is not a snapping turtle underneath is it?

@Old Man Re: Bungy cord idea

Oh, HELL yes! Why didn't I think of that? No annoying repacking of my chute. And we could make the bungy line as long as we want. AWESOME!

But, wait... Elephants?... Snapping turtles? Hmmm... Yep. Cool. I'm still in! Would definitely be more interesting than the plain ol' boring looking pillars that are suppose to be supporting this damn pancake on which we live.

Here’s proof of a flat earth.

Here’s proof of a flat earth. It’s an actual, un-photoshopped picture of a REAL lunar eclipse.

Nice try, CyberLN, but where are the shadows of the turtles going all the way down?

Oh, good grief! Really??? You mean to tell me you have never heard of a non-turtle eclipse? Sheeesh! Didn't they teach you nuthin' in school?

Oh, shit, sorry. I apologise

Oh, shit, sorry. I apologise CyberLN, I withdraw, I confess I am not a real life qualified astrophysicist.

You’re forgiven, Grinseed. I

You’re forgiven, Grinseed. I actually couldn’t figure out why the turtles didn’t show up in the picture either. Tin Man is a superb educator, though, and now we all know.

@Cyber and Grin Re: Eclipse

@Cyber and Grin Re: Eclipse & turtles

To be more specific, the eclipse without the turtle shadows happens only once in a green moon. It is after all of the turtles have gone all the way down, and the eclipse just happens to take place within that very brief period of time before the turtles return to go all the way down again. A very rare event, to be sure, but very well documented in the hardback edition of "Mystic Teachings of Tortoisology."

If the Earth is positively

If the Earth is positively demonstrated to be flat, then yes, I will accept God.
God in this context of course refers to a holy trinity of pancakes, crepes, and potato chips (or crisps, for our friends across the pond), as these are obviously all made in his image.

Actually, *that* is a god I could get on board with. God knows the world would be a much better, albeit flatter, place.

If the earth is proven to be a sphere, then you have to stop worshiping god.

If the Earth is a sphere why

If the Earth is a sphere why in the world would I worship a book that says it’s flat it would not be of God and lie.

Why would anyone accept that

Why would anyone accept that the God hypothesis is correct if the earth could be proven to be flat?! You would only be proving that the dimensions of our planet were different to what was believed.

Irregardless, flat earth is bollocks.

Everyone who believes it, tends to be completely unable to grasp the very basics of science, physics, astronomy, trigonometry and empiricism.

All you ever get is memes, which is ironic coming from a bunch of feckless, oxygen deprived skidmarks who constantly complain about any image from NASA being CGI.

And just ask the idiots to demonstrate or provide one single working model that accounts for what we actually experience in reality.

Not to mention the dickheads proved themselves wrong on the 'beyond the curve' Netflix documentary where they said a lazer gyroscope would detect a 15 degree shift, if the earth actually rotated... guess what happened...

It would have to be flat,

It would have to be flat, suspended on 4 pillars and covered with a colander like dome structure so the light could shine through for the God myth thing to be even close to real.

Hey, once we get the bungee line in place and functional at the edge of the world we will be able to determine the structure of the whole support system. Oh, and have fun all at the same time.... *grin*... Oh, wait.... What's this shit about a dome? How the hell we suppose to fall/jump off the edge of the Earth with a dome wall blocking the edge??? What's it made of? Should we take a pick axe with us to chip through it? A cutting torch? A saws-all? Dammit, this really throws a kink into the plans!... *throwing hands up in frustration*... *storming off back to the workshop*...

@Tin: I'm hoping that by

@Tin: I'm hoping that by the time we get there, we will have lost enough weight to squeeze through one of the holes. Option two is to stuff the bungee cord through the hole, dismantle you on this side and then use chop sticks to put you back together on the other side before attaching you to the cord and shoving you off the edge, camcorder in hand.

I will bring the acetylene cutting gear....

@Old Man Shouts: Awesome!!

@Old Man Shouts: Awesome!! I've got extra video equipment to document the process on this side of the dome.

Uh, look, if it comes to that, would you guys PLEASE make sure you put all the right parts back in all the right places. If you recall last time, that didn't quite happen. To say the least, it was very embarrassing having to wear a pair of underwear over my head for the few days that followed until corrections could be made.

Well we will label label them this time....it is very difficult to tell your arse from your elbow at the best of times and as for the head...well...maybe color coding is the way to go?

You would then need to prove

You would then need to prove that the flat Earth relates to a God of a specific type, from one set of mythical beliefs.
Just because it turned out to be true- what an illiterate bronze-age goat-herd named Abraham wrote about a flat, square Earth, supported on pillars, centered on Jerusalem, with nothing existing "beyond" the dome of the "heavens" projected above- doesn't mean his version of everything else relating to his version of a deity is true.
It could be some other deity, making xtians be fooled to test them.
You're still left with proving the judeo-xtian myth is the only ultimate truth of the universe.

Or, this could be the original, un-edited image they don't want you to see:

This is why "what ifs" and

This is why "what ifs" and "ifs" are dangerous to the human brain. Extracting conclusions based on an assumption.

Here's the thing okay. When the Earth is proven to be flat, we'll see what happens next when the time comes. Sounds good?
