Hello,

I'm a college student and am currently writing a paper about the Flat Earth Theory. But I'm not an expert in this topic, merely an amateur and therefore I would truly appreciate an expert's help. I would like to know more about the proofs (and if you could send links to them, it would be much appreciated) that have been found and perhaps a professional description of the theory that goes into deeper details. It would also be interesting to know the demographics of our community. Any help will be appreciated.  :)

You're about two clicks away from the largest compilation of arguments, past and present, that I'm aware of. You could try the wiki and the refs therein.

I echo the Wiki reading - something I should have done before just questioning everything, because whether I agree with the theories put forward or not, there are explanations for a lot of things that will allow you to delve deeper into the things that maybe puzzle you most.  In particular, I'd start out by maybe reviewing the following two major theories that are needed to explain a lot of what FET relies on:

https://wiki.tfes.org/Electromagnetic_Acceleration - explains many things including why the Sun doesn't illuminate the entire surface at once, why we only see one face of the Moon etc.
https://wiki.tfes.org/Universal_Acceleration - explains gravitation

There are many things out that demonstrate curvature, and one of my go-to references is the Rainy Lake Experiment:

It's a modern repeat of the Bedford Level Experiment carried out on a canal.

If you can't gather from my response, and for your demographic analysis, I'm of the round Earth mindset but am here to learn more about FET, the what's and the why's.
