This Is What "Proves" The Earth Is Flat, According To Conspiracy Theorists

The Bottoms Of The Clouds Are Flat

Sometimes you really can’t make this sh*t up. One of the main "proofs" that the Earth is flat is that the bottoms of the clouds are too. Again, let’s use our senses. Yes, some clouds have flat bottoms. But others don’t. And this doesn’t depend on the curvature of the Earth.

The flat bottom of cumulus clouds is created by changes in pressure and temperature in the atmosphere. Water vapor can only condense below a certain temperature and, especially on warm days, can travel upwards by thousands of meters. As it travels, the air expands due to the larger volume (how does that work on a flat Earth?) and the pressure drops. Pressure, volume, and temperature are all connected. So there will be a very specific height where the vapor starts condensing and the bottom of the cumulus cloud forms.

The Movement Of The Sun

We can easily prove that the Earth moves and that other planets cannot possibly be orbiting it. But apparently, all the mathematical and observational evidence is not good enough for the flat-Earthers. They claim you can see the Sun move

And since our senses cannot be fooled, the flat-Earthers are also claiming that the image below is a gif with moving circles rather than a JPG. I hope for their sakes they're never on a train when the one next to them begins to move. That would blow their minds.

You can prove that this is an optical illusion by clicking on "inspect element" and checking that it's a JPG. lotan/Shutterstock

The Bedford Level Experiment

This is almost maddening. So in 1838, the president of the Flat Earth Society used a 10-kilometer (6-mile stretch) of the Bedford Level in England to prove that the Earth was flat. He claimed to have seen, using a telescope, a flag positioned at the 6-mile mark. Obviously, this couldn't possibly have happened if the Earth was not flat.

So my question is: are you actually serious flat-Earthers? You tell us not to believe NASA and all the other space agencies, claiming they spend trillions of dollars every year to keep the millions of people who work in the space programs quiet. Yet we should blindly accept the word of dead Englishman with an agenda?!!!!

Sometimes, I do wish that flat-Earthers would begin to use their senses. And common sense would be a good place to start.
