Hemispherical star differences?

I am curious, if a person in the northern hemisphere can observe Polaris, why can't a person in the southern hemisphere do the same if the Earth is flat?

Because the stars aren't light years away from us. They are atmospheric disturbances and objects suspended in the air. Can you see an airplane directly above Washington dc from los Angeles, California? The same applies to the stars.
Hi y'all. I am a typical GENIUS girl who does NOT follow the masses and who does NOT blindly accept what is told to me without EVIDENCE. That being said, I don't believe in a lot of "facts" (the quotations mean they're NOT actual facts) including evolution, the holocaust, and the globular earth HYPOTHESIS.

Hmm. But they rotate in different directions in the different what "round-earthers" would call hemispheres.
Almost as though we're on a sphere. Almost.

And your proof is what exactly? Atmospheric disturbances would result in random patterns, which is definitely not observed at all. Also, Polaris can be seen from near the equator very low on the horizon. It can also be seen quite high in the sky as you travel north a few thousand miles. Please explain how this is possible given the very dim nature of Polaris.
I saw a video where a pilot was flying above the sun.

I am unsure as to why you would expect any person to be able to see that far?

Polaris has been observed south of the equator though...

It can be seen 1 degree below the equator but not further south than that.
If you believe you have evidence to the contrary then please present it.

StinkyOne has a point. Atmospheric disturbances would vary based on a complex variety of variables, thus having one star appear in the same position is virtually impossible. The improbability exponentially increases when you take the other stars into account. They appear the same brightness, retain orientation, and consistently have the same position in reference to the other stars.
Also, if they were objects suspended in the sky, the smaller stars would not receive as much interference from a small amount of atmosphere as the stars that are separated from us by many light-years do by numerous cosmic factors. That would require the atmosphere to be comprised by an unknown media, which we would have at least some perception of from atmospheric analysis. Finally, what would hold the stars in place? Would they not crash into the planet that is accelerating towards them at gravitational speed? Or is it another unknown material there is no trace of?
