Are you aware that the earth is flat, motionless, and in the center of God's universe?

Yes, actually I was thinking of running bungee jumping tours to the edge of the planet, nobody seems to be doing that yet, although apparently there's confusing over how the gravity works there.Yes, actually I was thinking of running bungee jumping tours to the edge of the planet, nobody seems to be doing that yet, although apparently there's confusing over how the gravity works there.

Yes, and I'm also aware that the year is 1150. Except despite the geocentric tendencies of most Medieval scholars, to their credit, even they didn't believe the earth was flat.

Almost every culture around the world believed the world was flat. Sure, some of the Ancient Greeks believed it to be spherical, but the more common view was flat until Copernicus.

The Ancient Greeks were certainly ahead of their time in more ways than one! In fact, it often seems to me that intellectualism regressed after their decline (only for the trend to be reversed in the Renaissance).

For anything to prove the Earth is really flat, the Earth would have to actually BE flat. Since we know with complete certainty that it isn’t, nothing can possibly prove that it is.

Common sense. Fly completely around the Earth from day to night and back to day (and night). If Earth were flat, the sun would have to illuminate all of it at one time, and not have half of it in shadow.

Completely false. Use your imagination. The sun moves in circles around the North Pole. When it is over your head, it's day. When it's not, it's night. The light of the sun is confined to a limited area and its light acts like a spotlight upon the earth. Like this:

Maps aren't theoretical, they're used for navigation. Every aircraft on the globe relies on that data, about 4.5 million people fly every day. There are about 38,000 ships at sea relying on mapping data to reach their destinations. If the earth was flat, we'd know. It would have to be on the maps because there are people using those maps to find their way around every part of the world.

That isn't my evidence, just commenting on the map thing. Day and night is easily explained: The sun moves in circles around the North Pole. When it is over your head, it's day. When it's not, it's night. The light of the sun is confined to a limited area and its light acts like a spotlight upon the earth.

Not quite like that, because the earth moves as well, although slowly and so the sun is not constant on the earth...

It's easy to observe the behavior of light. Sources of light become dimmer the further away they are because light disperses, but light travels for very long distances, so an object bright enough to make daylight cannot easily move far enough away to make night. Light can easily be blocked though, as it is by the earth at night, an effect we can observe by looking at the phases of the moon, or holding a ball up to a flashlight in a dark room.

It makes perfect sense, you just aren't using your mind for it. At places of comparable latitude North and South, the Sun behaves very differently than it would on a spinning ball Earth but precisely how it should on a flat Earth. For example, the longest summer days North of the equator are much longer than those South of the equator, and the shortest winter days North of the equator are much shorter than the shortest South of the equator. This is inexplicable on a uniformly spinning, wobbling ball Earth but fits exactly on the flat model with the Sun traveling circles over and around the Earth from Tropic to Tropic.

At places of comparable latitude North and South, dawn and dusk happen very differently than they would on a spinning ball, but precisely how they should on a flat Earth. In the North dawn and dusk come slowly and last far longer than in the South where they come and go very quickly. Certain places in the North twilight can last for over an hour while at comparable Southern latitudes within a few minutes the sunlight completely disappears. This is inexplicable on a uniformly spinning, wobbling ball Earth but is exactly what is expected on a flat Earth with the Sun traveling faster, wider circles over the South and slower, narrower circles over the North.

If the Sun circles over and around the Earth every 24 hours, steadily travelling from Tropic to Tropic every 6 months, it follows that the Northern, central region would annually receive far more heat and sunlight than the Southern circumferential region. Since the Sun must sweep over the larger Southern region in the same 24 hours it has to pass over the smaller Northern region, its passage must necessarily be proportionally faster as well. This perfectly explains the differences in Arctic/Antarctic temperatures, seasons, length of daylight, plant and animal life; this is why the Antarctic morning dawn and evening twilight are very abrupt compared with the North; and this explains why many midsummer Arctic nights the Sun does not set at all!

That's funny, if the earth was flat and the sun moved like that, you'd just see the sun move around in a circle. That image is what it would look like if a very bright object was flying in a circle close to the globe at night.

The United Nations is a hotbed for corruption and abuse. It is opaque, diplomatically immune, largely unaccountable – and has come to regard billions in U.S. tax dollars not as a privilege to be earned, but as an entitlement.

They are the seat of a global toilet.

Electromagnetism replaces gravity. Relative density and buoyancy are sufficient in explaining why objects rise and fall. Why does there have to be an edge? Antarctica is a 360 ice wall that holds in the waters. We could also be under a dome, or it could be an infinite plane.

How could sundown and sunset not exist on a flat earth? The fact that it looks like the sun is setting is merely a matter of the law of perspective. We know it isn't actually setting. When you look at a row of lamps it appears to be curving inward but we know it is not, and just a matter of perspective, just like a sunset. Sun is smaller and closer to the earth than we have been told and it circles the earth like a spotlight, illuminating only one portion of the earth at a time.
