    I was in the navy and we had a powerful set of binoculars we called "big eyes". One day I could see a carrier way off in the distance but I could only see the top half. The rest was hidden by the curvature of the earth.

    If the earth is flat, why are all the other celestial bodies spherical?

    Dave will suggest they are just flat like the earth. Science is wrong, apparently however, not the science that developed computers and the internet. Just the science he and his wackadoodle buddies do not "believe". Ah, well, we are on TOL.

    The answer is in the videos, so I suggest you view some of them before you respond.

    I agree. It is a bit much to expect people to watch hours of videos. That is especially the case when they are reluctant to even consider your ideas. Why should a skeptic spend hours of his time watching videos about something he thinks is ridiculous? If you have a case to make, I expect it can be explained in a short paragraph.

    There are such explanations about ships on the horizon online. They take about 2 minutes to read and understand, and another half minute to realize that they are silly.

    Then we all should be used to it, since that's no different than what we've seen from 6days and the other creationists around here. They all pretty much operate according to that framework, the only difference being which areas of science they apply it to. For Dave it's the shape of the earth and general cosmology, and with 6days et al. it's evolutionary biology, cosmology, and geology (generally speaking).

    Yeah there is. You never climbed a mountain? Took a plane?

    The videos in this case are important because we a dealing here with visual evidence. The case for the shape of the earth is not philosophy or theology.

    I have viewed a number of videos and I hope others will look at what I have seen and then comment on them.

    Most of you seem to be afraid to do this, I understand. I thought I would have a good laugh when I started but I was very surprised at what I found.

    The flat earth view does not say there are no mountains. The view is that we do not live on a globe.
