The understanding that the Earth is flat grow again just like the ancient belief that rebirth.
On YouTube, the number of accounts – including TigerDan925 – upload a video explanation of the flat Earth and its arguments.
While on Facebook, there are a number of communities – including The Flat Earth Society – which consist of people who believe that the Earth is flat. On Twitter, there is an account @FlatEarthID with some information about the Flat Earth view.
At first glance it can not be trusted.
Humans already have the image of the Earth as a blue marble, photographing Earth daari Saturn as the “Pale Blue Dot”, and sent New Horizon to the edge of the Solar System. How could anyone still believe the Earth flat?
Believe it or not, it’s still there are people like that.
People who believed in a flat Earth essentially deny all knowledge development that has been achieved for centuries.
They consider Neil Armstrong landing on the moon hoax! They assume the satellites are actually never existed! They believe that the Sun was only 4,000 kilometers!
Posts VICE.com in 2014 revealed that those who believe that the Earth is flat believe that the sun has always been at the Tropic of Cancer and Capricorn, which means that the distance is less than 5,000 kilometers from Earth.
They also believe that the Earth is so special that even though many celestial bodies are round, flat earth shaped like a disc.
Flat Earth evidence by those who believe it can be known when flying.
Passengers are always told that the aircraft with a fixed height after stable in air. According to the flat earth believers, if the Earth is round, flying height should never fixed.
Astrophysics professor and Head of the National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN) said that the view of a flat Earth is far-fetched.
“That’s pseudoscience,” he said.
“Ordinary people believe it because it’s as if the view when in fact no scientific basis at all,” he said when contacted by Kompas.com , Monday (11/07/2016).
This is a proof that the Earth is round and not flat.
People who believe in a flat Earth believes that the South Pole is a wall that can not be penetrated.
“In fact, once the flights passing through the south pole, from South Africa to New Zealand. If the South Pole impenetrable wall, there can be no flight was,” he explained.
Flights pass through the south pole is now not in demand because of technical reasons related to cold temperatures.
The view that the satellite is also less unfounded lie. In fact, currently based human communication satellites.
Similarly, the belief that the Sun is 4,000 kilometers from Earth.
“The sun temperature reaches 6,000 degrees Celsius. If the distance of the Sun as close as it was, then we would be tortured and burned by radiation and heat,” said Thomas.
Aircraft still flying height could also be described.
Aircraft flying height is measured relative to the Earth’s surface. Large size makes the curvature of the Earth that the Earth is not so perceived.
“If we become a pilot, we will be able to prove it,” said Thomas.
“If the earth is flat, then from the top we could stare at any one region, including the South Pole. In fact, our view remains limited.”
Proving that the Earth is round can be done in a simple way.
Many people hunt twilight view of the holiday. Dusk scene it could be evidence that the Earth is round.
When looked at dusk, people will see an imaginary line that limits the view. The sun will sink in a line called the horizon.
If the Earth is flat, a line that seems to unite the sky and the Earth’s surface that will not exist.
If there is a sailing ship in the ocean, people will not see the ship was lost slowly and per piece when moving away if only the Earth was flat.
“When the ship approached, we taakkan watched the smoke first, part of the ship as a whole, but direct everything,” said Thomas.
Still want to believe the Earth flat?
