I have been running into Flat Earthers lately and most of them are Calvinistic.
One in particular says that for the same reason they believe in a YE, they believe in a Flat Earth. The Bible supports a flat earth.
Others go onto say that NASA can not be trusted and they give pictures as supposed proof that NASA doctors pictures to make it look like the earth is spherical.
Note, for some reason my phone will not copy and paste.
They are pictures from NASAs web site.
One picture looks like it says SEX in the clouds.
In others it has 6 pictures of the earth over 6 years, with the appearance of making it look like North America is different sizes and colours, over the years.
I attribute most of that to the Earth's curvature; but they say it just proves the photos are doctored.
The last post I made, I just laughed at them.

Methinks they should be more concerned about "Flat Liners", which everyone will experience in God's perfect time. I sometimes wonder how such people exist on their own. In days gone by, they were put under the care of "attendants" in a mental hospital. evilgrin dizzy

Hence why I laughed at them.
I need to admit, I felt a little bad about my reaction.

In case you are interested, here are a few links (pictures) with comments, that a FEer says proves NASA doctors their photos.
Quote
“This official image direct from the NASA website has multiple clouds copy/pasted.”

Quote
“ Finally, observe the size of the U.S continent in the 1997, 2002, 2007 and 2012 official NASA images.
They are all different sizes. Enough said.”

I told this particular person, that I don’t see what he is seeing and he told me it is obvious. So I told him, to be fair to him, I would ask some others what they think.

So, IF the Flat Earthers are correct, then if one flew an aircraft due west it would eventually end up in space rather than the incontrovertible fact that it would end up at its original starting point. Further, IF as they contend is true that the earth is actually flat, then when reaching the "edge" of the earth, one could then travel to the underside of the earth which one would see what, pray tell? drop

Very good point.
I was wondering if you looked at the links I mentioned?

Yes, I perused the links but saw nothing that would even hint at the earth is flat. scratchchin

1. It is a universal truth that you can get a group of people together to look at various cloud formations and you will get as many opinions as to what they see. The same is true for looking at stars.

2. I saw no "doctoring" by just looking at the online photos which would change the perspective so one would think the earth was round vs. flat as purported by these individuals.

The entire premise is irrational. What in the world (pun intended) would it mean if the world was, in fact, flat, e.g., what truth would revealed that is now hidden because people think the world is round? To me it is similar to someone denying gravity. However, that is easily proved by having the denier jump off a building. evilgrin

I thought I would share something from a FEer when I asked the following question.
(He doesn’t mind me sharing)
If an airplane flies due west would they eventually end up in space; or at the same point they started? (Pilgrim, I hope you don't mind that I modified something you said in to me)

(Please note, I need to admit, that I think I must be misunderstanding his answer. It appears like he has just supported the non-flat earth position.)

Quote
“Sure I'd be happy to explain. It is actually quite simple.

The use of a compass when travelling east or west will result in travelling in a perfect circle, as the position of magnetic north shifts incrementally in correlation to the distance travelled. This curved path results in successful circumnavigation, ending at the starting point.”

Ridiculous...... And, if you flew into "space" you could easily navigate so you could see the "bottom" of this alleged flat earth. Again, what purpose would NASA have in altering thousands of photos to make the earth appear round? And to repeat my previous question, what is the importance of having a flat earth vs. a round earth.

I suppose that all the photographs of all the other planets in our galaxy that show they are round (spheres) have been altered also? And when John Glenn &co. circumnavigated (orbited) the moon what they saw was a hallucination; or perhaps they all lied about what they saw? igiveup

Totally agree, the basic answer to why they believe this is important is because they say Scripture supports it.
They believe we must interpret Scrioture in the same way we come up with a YE.
They also say that Calvin himself was a Flat Earther. I have not seen proof of this, but I did see a quote from Calvin showing he believed it is rediculous to believe the earth rotates around the Sun. He said the earth is stationary and the Sun moves around the Earth.
