The flat Earth model is an archaic conception of Earth's shape as a plane or disk.
Earth: the third planet in the solar system from the sun
I believe I can prove earth is NOT flat in only 500 characters
No arguments about the world being a simulation is allowed
Burden of proof is shared
- NPFE= not possible on flat earth
- Ships disappear over horizon NPFE
- We see lunar eclipse shows round shadow NPFE
- Vision extend when higher, NPFE
- Paper proves curvature of earth, time zones prove NPFE
- Greek mathematician proved with different shadow length at time of year gives 7 degree curve of earth
- NASA international space station photos: no reason to fake, impossible to maintain conspiracy
- Airlines fly based on round earth routes that are NPFE
- Zero expert papers published about flat earth model being true — how do you explain this?
- P1: Moving in straight line results in an orbit. 
- P2: Gravity is not a force. Gravity = Bending of spacetime [2, 3]
- C1: An orbit is a straight line
- Appeal to intuitive perception rather than objective physics
- Globe is only one of many models 
- Earth is flat regardless of model
- Orbital speed is only needed to adjust velocity through time
- Orbit still a straight line
- PRO rejects science without evidence or logical explanation.
- All R1 Args dropped
- Legal standards say most common definition is most logical
- Debate description involves disk/plane in 3D Geometry, not spacetime
- Search results don't care about space time
- Con doesn't explain why gravity has anything to do with Earth geography
- No motivation/logic explained for why NASA and all world gov. org. "lie about flat earth"
- No reasoning for why Greek philosopher "lied", and we keep secret for thousands of years
- Surface = how much cover, Volume (Spherical) = how much held -> surface =/= volume
- Gravity is a force
- Perfect 3D geometry
- Earth can be described by multiple models
Quoting CON: "Earth surface is flat"So "Earth surface is flat" = fact
