These and many other questions come up here often.  There is a new thread where distances and times are discussed.  Well hopefully discussed.

https://forum.tfes.org/index.php?topic=6633.0

The distance from New York to Paris is unknown.

I do not have the bandwidth to maintain a conversation with you.

I'm sure we all know (or should know) that the earth is a globe.

But this website is about some people who believe ? (or pretend that they believe ?) that the earth is a flat disc and Antarctica is a "rim continent" with a 150 feet tall "ice ring" around the edge to keep the oceans from flowing off the edge and into space. (See "Unipolar Azimuthal Equidistant Projection" (of the globe) for one Flat Earth Map)

There are a lot of us "Round Earthers" on these forums who work in fields where things that work on a globe wouldn't work on a flat disc.

But flat earthers say we're stupid and we've just been "brainwashed and indoctrinated" by evil scientists, etc. (NASA is a satanic organization and the worst enemy of TFES....NASA is just an anagram for SATAN.....and there are evil designs in the NASA logo ) into believing that the earth is a globe.

Welcome to TFES !

Stick close to your P.C's and never go to sea
And You All may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Yes, Never, Never, Never go to sea
Just look out your windows,
Flat ! Flat ! Flat !
Is all that you shall see !

The one thing I just don't get is how the flat earth society even exists. This isn't like disproving God's existence, as that is more complicated to debate as we can't see or test on God, but literally anyone can simply test anytime they want that the earth is round. Like all you have to do is call someone on the other side of the planet, and if they say "oh hey yeah its night time here, the moon is up and there is no sun". And guess what?? You go outside where you are and see the sun shining away in the sky and no moon to be seen!! Case closed! That simply can't happen on a flat earth, end of story , why is this even an argument??
And if that isn't enough proof for you, then go save up a load of money and go on some high altitude flight and look at the damn curve for yourself, all these pictures on this site showing a flat horizon are just ridiculous, the earth is massive, you have to go a lot higher than a normal plane flight to see the earths curve.
