    If you believe if a flat earth, how would you explain timezones? Or the day cycle? Or the fact that we'd effectively be standing on a near vertical slope of the other side of the earth to maintain the same gravitational force/pressure?

    Honestly I feel like this should be treated like a serious question. There are a fuckton of questions they need to explain, but often just avoid explaining. Rarely ever do I suggest pressuring someone their believes, but Flat Eathers (and Gateway users) need their believes questioned.

    Yeah I wrote this as a serious question, anytime I ask a real flat earthed these questions they don't respond

    Allow me to explain using this diagram:
    science
    In the middle we have the Earth, which is flat. On the top we can see North America, South America, and that big island. Asia and Europe are on the other side.

    As you can see, the sun is only shining on the top of the Earth in this diagram, so it's day there in North America. On the other side of the Earth is the moon, which does generate its own light, shining on Europe and Asia. The moon and sun slowly revolve around the Earth in the directions indicated by the pink arrows, allowing a day cycle.

    Somebody decided the time of day should depend on when it's day.

    I don't know what you're talking about but you've clearly been brainwashed by the evil scientists and their "theories."

    ---

    If the Earth isn't flat, explain this:
    proof
    That's right. No matter how you look at it, that's a flat Earth.
    If the Earth was a pentagon, like some claim, it would look like this when you go outside:
    what the Earth doesn't look like

    This... is a joke, right? You can't seriously believe the earth is flat.

    God is about as believable as the flat earthers are. Anybody that believes in either of the two are deluded fools.

    Good question, I would like to know too, but heliocentric model is more absurd.
    For example how the moon and sun despite so much distance we can observe the same size? (at least i have to be a Gateway user no matter which model i choose, because I don't believe in coincidence)
    I guess flat earthers just have better eye then those indoctrinated scientists.
    Did you know that 100 years ago teachers can't teach that earth is a sphere?

    The Qur'an says that the shape of the Earth is like the shape of an ostrich's egg.
