Oxymoron[edit]

'Questions that Flatheads can not answer intelligently.' Anna Livia (talk) 20:29, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Rocket Man[edit]

Some mention of the rocket man flat earther perhaps? Anna Livia (talk) 16:01, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

There's a link to his page in the See also section. Bongolian (talk) 18:03, 26 March 2018 (UTC)
His latest launch was in the newspapers - otherwise I (and others) would not have picked up on it.
Surely there is a cleavage between rockets and flatness? Anna Livia (talk) 23:03, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

Other planets.[edit]

The article suggests that a flathead might be confounded by questions comparing Earth to other planets, but flathead literature that I've read does not talk about _other_ planets. It says that the Earth is _not_ a planet. It says that the Earth is the ground we stand on, and the planets circulate around the sky along with the stars and the Sun and the Moon. — Unsigned, by: 75.149.30.179 / talk

Many of them insist the planets are "wandering stars", the evidence being failing to focus telescopes (or to avoid using telscopes at all) and insisting that the ancients can't not be right in their beliefs.207.98.184.12 (talk) 00:18, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Flat Earth Conference[edit]

This [1] came up on the web-browser: there are many other references (and where do kangaroos and platypussies fit into their no-Australia thesis?). Anna Livia (talk) 11:33, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

Time Cube[edit]

How would a Time Cube-Flat Earth discussion proceed? Anna Livia (talk) 14:03, 5 October 2018 (UTC)

Another link[edit]

Came across [2] while looking for something else: probably worth including (where on the page?).. Anna Livia (talk) 22:38, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

More points[edit]

More arguments against (if any are needed)

  • Captain Scott of the Antarctic
  • Not a SF trope - not even a 'bad science' fiction trope (fantasy being somewhat different).
  • Not the subject of a series by David Attenborough (obligatory whisper), or a visit by Brian Blessed (OBLIGATORY CAPS LOCK ON/LOUD VOICE). Anna Livia (talk) 12:13, 10 October 2018 (UTC)

Global Warming[edit]

What is the Flatty view of global warming - as it would melt the ice wall and all the seas would fall off the edge. Anna Livia (talk) 12:13, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
