The Earth is flat. If the Earth were to be spherical helicopters would just have to fly straight up in the air and sit in one spot and just wait until the place they need to go comes to them, but no, the helicopters fly to there destination. Also, if the Earth was round, wouldn't all the water fall off of it?

I accept this argument? Maybe you should research some things before putting some statements on the Internet. This could be a joke, who knows.

I'm fond of the internet, I know how it works. The Earth is flat. If the Earth was round and always rotating, why doesn't a ball move if it is placed in the ground?

That's like asking why don't people fall upwards at the North and South Poles.

To explain your helicopter thing, if you were to fly a helicopter above a certain point, you would NOT witness the earth move below you. You are in the same hemisphere as the land section below you. Its not as if you're basking in the ozone layer to see the world pass beneath you. You rotate WITH the earth. If you are saying that you could fly up in the air, wait a day, and come back down to see Paris all around you, that is painfully incorrect. If you're going to argue about something like the earth being flat, the least you could do is say things that would be difficult, but entirely possible, to prove wrong because the earth is indeed a sphere.

As for your water thing, its called gravity. There's nothing else to say.

Also, if the earth WAS flat, which is by no means true, wouldn't water just drip of the sides because there is not gravitational core? No north or south poles? No layers, mantle, no inner core or outer core, nothing. Your world is impractical.

the earth is flat because if you pour water on a ball it will slide off so that makes no sense the earth is flat. uuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu u u u uu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

Gravity not a thing??? Hey does this fvcker pay attention in science class? His ignorance annoys me to think there are such people on earth.

How can an airplane like the Rutan Model 76 Voyager fly without refueling or stopping, in straight course and end up right where it started, if the earth is not a sphere? It"s been done many times now. That is the challenge, please use diagrams and mathematics to show how this is possible given your flat earth model.
