Just try to keep up with the Flat Earth studies and information is everywhere. I am not here to prove to you the earth is flat, cause you all have internet and can find the information for yourself. When you google Flat Earth the analytics have been changed on Google so all the Fake debunking videos on flat earth come up first. Be smart and go past that to find the TRUTH. The TRUTH is always harder to find than the obvious. ..

I'm trying to keep up, Colleen, but it seems to me that flat earth beliefs are based more on faith than on facts.
Flat earth faith alone does not cut it for me. I need facts.
The videos you posted seem to be people's opinions.
Hope you're enjoying our warm weather.
Are you growing your own marijuana yet?
It's easy to grow but it stinks.;)

Colleen, I just went through some of those videos.
That stuff is nonsense. Seriously.
I hope you're not donating to any of their causes.
There is MILLIONS of videos and Billions of people that now know the earth is flat. Its not nonsense and there is serious evidence the earth is flat. But if you wish to believe the impossible ball and not actively look at the evidence, then stay with your impossible ball (built on PROVEN LIES) and live in the "matrix". Meanwhile you will be left behind as grandchildren will know the truth as they are more alert and do there own research. That's why the younger generations seem to know whats really going on, meanwhile the older folks are still stuck watching fake news. Kinda like the CBD oil... Many people at old folks home where my mom is, still watching their loved ones get taken away by dementia, while proof is everywhere that CBD oil REALLY works!

Ok.
I'm on your side with cbd but not flat earth.
Cbd makes a difference in people's lives. Thinking the earth is flat makes no difference - it's just something interesting to discuss.

I told you to research it first before you ask questions
And I told you I've researched this all my life, I've watched enough Flat Earth conspiracy videos to know they don't know what the heck they are talking about. They only make sense to people who don't really understand the observational physics involved.
And new P1000 camera's and Infrared Cameras can see for hundreds of impossible miles on a curved earth.
Referencing this P1000 camera as some sort of new and fantastic instrument for seeing great distances is just ridiculous, as good as the zoom might be on that camera it is still just a camera with a zoom, a decent telescope for the same cost could magnify things much better with magnitudes better clarity. And if we are on the topic of just seeing distant objects, you don't necessarily need any special instruments to see distant objects, you can see the Andromeda galaxy with your naked eye and it is 2.5 million light years away. It's magnification and resolution that counts for observing distant objects and you'll want to use a telescope for that not a camera with a fancy zoom lens.
First if we were a ball, spinning thew space at millions of miles per hour, we would see different constellations every night and the star Polaris has NEVER moved!!!
I don't know where to begin with you on this sort of logic other than to ask you if you actually know where the North Star is and ask you if you have ever observed its angle above the horizon from another latitude other then where you live? The further South you go the closer you'll observe the North star to the horizon. You are aware that you can't observe it in the southern latitudes below the Equator, right? That is because it is hidden below the horizon because of the curvature of the Earth.

Perhaps you need to get out and see the world a bit.

Take a trip to South America and check back with me. lol

@callingcolleen1 - whenever I research things where I believe that the facts may be different than what has long been accepted as truth, I ask myself "why?" Lies are employed by people who have something to gain, and usually that boils down to money or power. So with your belief that we are being lied to about the earth being round, what do you think the government or NASA or scientists or whoever stands to gain by convincing us the earth is actually round and not flat as you believe? Where's the gain in the lie? What does anyone achieve by lying about something so basic and yet so innocuous? I mean honestly - who cares? My life wouldn't change one iota if the planet I live on turns out to be flat. So who benefits from lying to us?

I would also be curious how you would explain a solar eclipse if the earth is flat.

I am so happy to see your mom is getting better every day! Kudos to you for being brave enough to try something new. Now medicine is definitely one of those areas where you can see the gain in the lie - keeping us dependent on drugs will enrich the drug companies. The lie leads to gain which equals money in their pockets.

Look your all just beginners when it comes to Flat Earth and soon you will be just the "minority" as so many people have internet and their own brains and can clearly see we have all been lied to by NASA and the likes...Not even up for debate as you all can see for yourself if you takr the time to research it. Take a look at all the fastest growing facebook, Twitter, and etc, and notice how much traffic they get and how busy the Flat EARTH channels are.... You will get the picture, and hopefully wake up from your "global dream".... You will never convince me the earth is round, so please don't even try, when I already know for a fact it is FLAT. Eventually some of you will wake up and see what all the younger generation seems to know these days. Its just a matter of time and while your wondering why billions are saying the earth is really flat, research Dinosaurs Are FAKE!

I myself do not care if it's flat or round as it does not matter one way or the other in the long run. It will not change my belief in God or if there is a Heaven or a Hell so what's the point? It's like arguing over which came 1st, the chicken or the egg? Why even bother w/it? If one is a person that chooses to believe one way or the other than so be it but I don't see what all the hoopla is about. What do we gain from it being flat or round or square or whatever?

For me it was surreal, to find out the earth is just as the bible says and that there really is a firmanent as Genesis describes, the whole thing was a very spiritual event. I have watched hundreds of hours of flat earth and you can see the rocket really hitting God's FIRMAMENT! I will find you that video later... Have to run to work so Bless you all, round or flat, God still loves us!

Florida is a legal Mary jane med state, I picked up some CBD hand cream for pain. For the first time in a long time I can sleep, my hands don't wake me up due to pain.
I am happy it is helping your mom Colleen.

I know someone that is benefiting greatly by the use of cbd for their migraines.

I have some arthritis in my hands, never can stop using them. Many nights I am woken up due to the pain, even during the day, like a bad tooth ache going on all of the time. Many nights I can't sleep due to the pain. I hate pain pills so don't ask for them.

I am so tickled, this is the first time in years I sleep all night without waking to pain off and on all night. Not a cheap answer, but if it works who cares.

Like @j.w says, we're all free to believe what we want, I'm always curious to understand why or how people come to the conclusions they do. Though I do take issue with scam artists.
Same here @MitchM . I believe lots of things that "normal" people think are nutty. If you're talking conspiracy, then there's a motive, and when you get to the motive you can get to the truth.

@addy1 - glad to hear you've found an answer for your hand pain. Mine are just starting to bother me - same as you, I sometimes wake up at night with pain in my fingers and hand - so I'll definitely be looking into this as a solution. I don't like pills either.

Its hard for me to explain everything in words, but rest the Flat Earth exoerts have all questions covered. If your interested to learn about flat earth then check out some of the links to rhe posts about flat earth, or check out " Flat Earth Discussion Group on Facebook (they are VERY Busy) Most people become flat earthers after doing serious research. . I am rarely on my computer these days as I am always running to work, or to my mom. Right now I am in tub sitting soaking my tired bones. My mother is making such huge progress we are going to Church again this morning before I rush ro work. We used to go but her dementia was so bad she never knew what was going on and would make non stop noise of inaudible words, and people in church would look at us because we disturbed others...

Was going to take my mother to Church this morning but she was still in bed as the wheelchair seems to make her bed sores worse. I have got a new air matress a couple days ago, that compresses, / depresses, and her sores are just finally healing. But she is making progress and can do little things again like hold can of bubbling water and drink it herself. She can also take fork and put it in her mouth. She speaks quite good now, and seems sound of mind, but her body is weak but improving slowly.
Nurses are amazed by her change and one said her face has changed, and she looks like she did before dementia. Before she used to look at me strange and had that "vacant stare". She's sleeping so nice and were listening to beautiful soft Christmas music...
