    Hello
    Elon Musk asked this question after the launch of the Falcon Heavy:
    If there is a Flat Earth society, then why is there not a Flat Mars society?
    The FEs replied “Because Mars has been proven to be round”

    Then why would Earth be flat if Mars and all the other planets in the Solar System be round?

    Why are you even asking this? Pretty much no one believes in all that. Isn't this trying to create a debate where none exists?

    There are no genuine Flat Earthers. People just pretend to be one in order to seem edgy or wacky or as a wind-up.

    The earth is not in a solar system. There is no solar system. There are no planets. A solar system is in the imagination of those who choose to believe in this stuff, nothing more.

    So Earth is the only planet, other planets don’t exist and we don’t orbit the sun? K then mate

    Explain how the day and night system would work as we know it on a flat earth? Explain how we have different seasons, and explain why physics we have gained from the knowledge the Earth is round works so well when designing stuff?

    I mean, I hate to point this out but there are hundreds of pendulums if sufficient mass built all over world that are left to swing all day every day, and funnily enough they rotate a full circle pattern over the course of a whole day.

    So you're not going to answer my question?

    I’m honestly interested to see if he brings up new arguments other than the ones flat earthers usually bring up when “debating” the issue

    You'll gain nothing from this idiot. It just goes round and round.

    Rather ironically, actually.

    I'm confident that this is not true based on some people on TSR and others who I have met.

    Would you say that to a religious person who believes in anti-science theories?

    I'm pretty sure there are people around the world who actually believe in this stuff (including a few on TSR) and I think it's best to educate them (or laugh at them) instead of simply calling them a troll. You'll probably find that they continue to believe in it even after you present facts, which is frustrating but at that point I just stop arguing.

    I don't count this as trolling.

    I say it about this particular poster.

    They have no interest in debating or learning. They spout their nonsense for hours on end.

    They're nothing but a waste of time.
