so I just woke up and I just figured out the world is not really round, it just appears to be round

oh wait, it doesn’t appear to be round it appears to be flat

well, appearances aren’t always deceiving and I am saying they are not in this case

what I am saying is that some “scientists” claim that if you go out far enough you will see that the world is round, i am saying that if you go out further you will not see the roundness anymore and that roundness from distance disappears from even further distance, in fact the entire planet disspears if you go out far enough so does that mean there is no planet simply because it disspears if you go out far enough?

no, it does not mean that, even though at distance the planet appears to dissapear that does not happen and even though at distance the planet appears round it is still flat

same thing going on there

I am also saying it’s not only flat but there are sides to the flatness, sort of like a cube only even more sides then a cube, say enough sides that at a certain distance the world might appear to be round to those who are uneducated

so god made a flat earth that looks flat then tricked some people into claiming it's round because they see something at a distance and form an incomplete understanding of what is really going on

this is a fact

Perspective is everything.



Two people in a hall, a ball bouncing down the hall. One says the ball is bouncing to them, the other says the ball is bouncing away from them. Who is right? It is all perspective.

Neither of them are right. I'm right.

and are people aware that the eyes trick themselves when looking at gradients of of light and dark to compensate between the changes in colour and tone? So what might look to be flat or slightly cubed is the eyes inability to precess the information which it is gathering.

That or perris has been sniffing EP's armpits again

If you give a cube enough "sides", it becomes a sphere.


But ya, I don't really understand the rest of the post.

Indeed. We must be talking about a low poly count globe here.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
