So called "scientists" like to tell us our planet is round and revolves around the sun. The "proof" they have is hearsay. Let me ask you, have you ever actually been in space and seen that our planet is round? Have you seen it revolve around the sun? The answer is no. They claim that the pictures are real, but there's absolutely no way to prove that. It's obvious by just living on the planet that none of what they say is true. You see the sun go up and come down and you can see the earth stretching farther than the eye can see. Kids are taught the round planet hypothesis, but it's time to teach the controversy. The children of today deserve it.

Teach controversies of pseudoscience and superstition? Of course not! Controversies such as creationism should definitely stay away from the science classroom, however, if there are differing scientific theories, such as 'what killed the dinosaurs', should be taught.

Wylted, I read a lot of your debate and I believe there's a flaw concerning your time zone argument. I made a picture to help explain XD

With a round earth and large sun, sunlight is evenly distributed to points A and B. They are equidistant from the equator, and we should expect A and B to receive the same amount of sunlight.

With a flat Earth, points A and B are equidistant to the equator (well, I'll call it that for lack of a better term). But points A and B do not receive the same amount of sunlight because the sun is closer to point A. So my question for you is: how can two points on Earth - equidistant to the equivalent of the equator - be in the same time zone but receive different amounts of sunlight? If you already argued this, can you point out which round you argued this in?

That's a new argument, that I've yet to see. I'll look into it to see if a reasonable answer exists. I'm glad that didn't come up in the debate.

Gotcha. If you see anything on that specifically, let me know! I'd like to hear.
