    Please present globe Earth arguments and I will try to debate with you

    I am very familiar with all the flat earth arguments so this will be fun.


    (I am not a flat Earther. This post is meant to test if you have knowledge gaps in your understanding of globe earth)

    First, take a look at a proper flat earth map. (The ones with the north pole in the middle)

    The sun hovers above the flat earth disc and goes in "orbits" around a spot above the North Pole. This way, different places on earth receive sunlight at different times, which means there are time zones.

    Don't. Don't give their BS exposure. I know it's not what you believe, but stop wasting your time even thinking about them.

    It is a similar reason to why they spray chemtrails. They are both done to control the masses. Also, NASA is doing this to hide God.

    If the earth was flat, would it be the only flat planet or would other celestial bodies be flat as well? In that case, how would the moon's waxing and waning work? And would there be a flat sun? (This isn't that much of an argument but rather just questions of interest)

    If the sun is above the North Pole, why is it a frozen tundra region, as opposed to a desert?

    No. The Moon™ is a round projection from Mars. Everyone knows this!
