Look, racism is so broad a topic, you can find a racist pretty much in all ends of the spectrum.

Have we mentioned reverse racism yet.

another atheist goes on a rampage .....

I'm hearing conflicting accounts about what this guy actually believed.

It's just weird, only motive I can see so far is the suggestion by the media for tighter gun laws because anyone can go on a psychotic rampage at any time.

What motivated Stephen Paddock to do this?

He was a wealthy retired High Roller with RE property, people like that are plumb lazy.
Did he really lift all those heavy guns into his room, why didn't he ask his golf caddy to do it.
The whole thing stinks to high heaven, there's something else going on here.

Despite all that, what kind of world are we leaving for the next generation?
When you don't even need a reason to shoot 500 people and murder sixty.

I really like that video, watched it a while ago.

Sent it to a Christian friend, it didn't convince him, he never even bothered to reply to it.
So don't be disheartened J-man, some people will never get it, even when shown something like this.

But I'm just wondering why the government would feel the need to hide this.

This question gets asked all the time on this forum.
The answer can depend on your current worldview, I believe in God so my answer will reflect this.

There is a group of elite satanists who are shaping society in preparation for a NWO.
They are wealthy beyond belief and control most of the worlds media and pop culture.
They set us against each other and start wars because it makes them lots of money,
They control our democracy and get their orders from the devil himself, they have been at it for centuries.
The global lie regarding the shape of the earth is there to remove the idea of God and inteligent design.
A person does not need to know the whole story to be complicite in their plans (agendas)
Even with all this power, they are not always successful, they just work steadily towards their goals.

Thats a rough Christian view of the situation, some would disagree.
Whatever you believe about the world will inform the way you view the conspiracy.

the 3rd plane clearly did not fly into the Pentagon.

Agreed,

The world is asleep right now,
Some even think we landed on the moon.

Do I read that you consider validity of text to be based on age rather than content?

No, not at all.  ::)

I'm simply suggesting that many ancient cosmologies have stronger references supporting a dome model than the example given. In the same way that there are many ancient deluge myths that point to a world wide flood event.

This is easy enough to find online so I won't bother you with links.

Where do we go to get the hats?
No need for hats on the mirror surface but you need very grippy shoes.

Anyway, nice theory, thinking outside the box,
Which is also another theory by the way.

I played Major Scott Cameron, who briefed the president on the Nuclear Football and the made a jibe towards him.

I second that as being really cool,   8)

Secretly I think most of us would love to be actors, what an interesting Career.
We have Netflix in Australia and I'll have to check it out, hopefully its on the Aussie playlist.

Flat Earth General / Re: FE as a cultural phenomenon.
« on: September 25, 2017, 07:44:47 AM »
Maybe those who join are, like me, people who struggle to understand why anyone would think the earth was flat,

Yes there are those types,

But there are also those who are FEers and the Roundies attack them and they run away and move to other places where people share their views. (As you do, we are only human after all) I came from the other flat earth forum which was way too aggressive for my tender sensibilities, but I was already convinced beforehand anyway.

This forum is well moderated and most of the Roundies on here are a little nicer to deal with.
But both forums are great IMO because they give you real world reactions and whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

Just bringing this thread back for roundy, the last one was spammed.

And since I posted this there has been a moderate increase in traffic but nothing like I thought would happen.

Flat Earth for myself is a bit like getting into a band before they are famous, then after they make their breakthrough album say, "Oh but their early stuff was heaps better." Only problem is, I came in with the breakthrough album and I haven't listened to much of the early stuff.

I just appreciate how happy and at peace you could be from knowing that this event occurred. I envy you.

Thanks again DA
I'm the last person you should be envious of though.

You seem to be suggesting that ignorance is bliss for Christians, this isn't true.
There's plenty of fears and sorrows in this life, I just yelled at one of my workmates and had to apologise.
I'm not that nice a guy, I can be a pretty rude stubborn bastard actually, (not that peaceful)

Thanks anyway for all the nice complements. :)

For Noah to travel to every nation on earth and collect a breeding pair of each animal, transport them all back to the arc, along with enough food to sustain them must have taken years!

There are Deluge (ARK) mythologies in many ancient cultures.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_flood_myths

Same thing with a domed flat earth, also in ancient cultures.

As for the Ark, God called the animals so no need to collect them, as for insects, everything that has the breath of life was destroyed so I'm guessing insects and fish don't count. I could go more into this but I think I'll stop now.
You won't convince a Christian who believes in YEC with those arguments because they have answers for them.

In some sense faith in God can seem irrational because no one can know everything.

But its way more irrational to believe that everything came from nothing. And scientists who deny God's existence are not trusting in empirical science because the Creation ""SCREAMS"" that God exists and they simply choose to ignore all evidence and believe a lie.

Do you mind if I ask you if you believe in the literal truth of the bible

Yes I do,

And that's why I believe the earth is flat, but I just said that didn't I.

I have a better example, I was thinking of the Dylan Thomas forward to selected poems.
This is my answer to taking the bible at face value.

QUOTE:
I read somewhere of a shepherd who, when asked why he made, from within fairy rings, ritual observances to the moon to protect his flocks, replied: “I’d be a damn’ fool if I didn’t!”

Anyway, I was looking for this quote (I've always loved this quote)
and I came across this great article so if anyone's interested here it is.

Sorry for gabbing on...

The Bible is true because the Bible says the Bible is true.

True.

Christians believe the bible, and that's also why I'm a flat earther, because the bible is a flat earth book.
The bible is undoubtedly geocentric and FET is the best cosmology for geocentricism.

You both literally just used bible quotes to prove bible quotes are valid....
Do you not see how foolish that is? 

You're right Dave, and God even admits it.

For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 1 Cor 1:21

The bible and other religious texts are the real issue here.
Passages can be cherry picked to justify any position.

Really interested to hear your views

Hi again D.A.  :)

The Bible is pretty clear on what God's requirements for salvation are.

Don't forget that Jesus is the word of God made flesh, and when Jesus was here on earth He often referred to the fact that He was fulfilling all things that were written of Him, (where were they written?) also, when Christ was tempted by the devil He simply repeated Bible verses (It is written) Now Jesus is our example and has promised that Heaven and earth will pass away but His word will not pass away, so the bible is pretty darn important to Christians as we are to follow Christ and not our own subjective sense of what God is or should be.

Flat Earth Q&A / Re: Flat Earth and God
« on: September 20, 2017, 12:38:50 AM »
Flat earth does need a "myth" to lean on.

No it doesn't, you have purposely misrepresented my statement.
There are flat earthers who are Athiests as well, you can hold any position you like.

A worldview doesn't have to make sense, take Evolution for example,
And the Big Bang??? Nothing creating something??? Sorry but that doesn't work either.
We are not omniscient so everything we conceive will have an element of faith to it.
And the position a person holds may send them down different roads.

But some dont worry about the roads and can live with the paradox.

Does a person have to believe in God in order to believe that the Earth is flat?

No, but some Atheists have become Agnostics after making the switch.

In other words FET lends itself to a Creator myth, and it can magnify your religious convictions.
You bring whatever you have to the table, and if you have nothing, you'll probably look for something.

I miss Inky  :'(

There are stronger cases for the sky dome in more ancient literature.
