"A higher plane," hehe

Does it mean that someone could get on a boat and head in any direction stay on that heading and when confronted with a land mass, simply go around it to get back on that same course and then one could endlessly continue in same direction and never find the end of the earth?
Serious flat earthers believe the earth is the "basement of the universe." It spreads outwards from the north pole; Antarctica is not a continent at the bottom of a ball but a ring ice wall around the "Earth pond." The ice wall is 100-200 feet high in general and contains the world's oceans. It is unknown (to normals, anyways, perhaps the world governments that signed the Antarctic Treaty know) how far the ice plateau extends once you ascend the ice wall.

If we are under a dome then there is an end eventually. Actually, now that I think about it, the Bible says there are ends to the Earth, but we don't believe in an edge you can fall off of into endless void. Earth is not a cracker floating in the heliocentric model solar system.

Okay so no matter what heading is sailed on the ocean you would always end of being blocked by an ice wall?

Earth's surface curves out of sight at a distance of 3.1 miles (5 kilometers). But our visual acuity extends far beyond the horizon. If Earth were flat, or if you were standing atop a mountain surveying a larger-than-usual patch of the planet, you could perceive bright lights hundreds of miles distant. On a dark night, you could even see a candle flame flickering up to 30 miles (48 km) away.

More science to test.

On a dark, CLEAR night, you might be able to see a candle flame miles away. One flat earther filmed his wife with a flashlight something like 6 miles away on the other side of a lake. She should have been hidden by curvature.

If you could strip away all the fog, dirt, smog, water vapor, you could see for hundreds of miles, even approaching a thousand. Oh wait... it's been done by a guy with an infrared camera:

I recommend watching his videos oldest to newest to get a feel for his personal flat earth revelation.

Here's a treat for you guys. Two makers of Flat Earth documentaries, the maker of the Flat Earth app, and the guy who wrote "16 Emergency Landings Proving Flat Earth" all in one livestream:

Hey, I like science fiction. Thanks!

I wonder how many flat earth folks there are in the U.S.A. ???
Man, oh man, pal. You are behind the curve... pun intended.

The modern Flat Earth movement BEGAN when your #1 argument there was disproven. The Nikon P900 camera came out - it has 80X digital zoom - and people could watch a boat "sail over the horizon" and then use a camera to pull it back into line of sight. There's a visible horizon that is an optical effect. You DO have a limited range of vision.

And then look up a selenelion. It's a daytime lunar eclipse where the sun and moon are both visible above the horizon. Happens regularly. So that's a good question you ask. Is it even a shadow on the moon at all? Or something else?

Most people have never seen the lunar wave phenomenon. It's a pretty recent discovery, first filmed in HD in 2012. You should look it up. The luminaries are much more mysterious than modern scientism would have you believe. We still don't know what the sun or moon are or how they work.
You have to be kidding. Do you know what a spectrum analyser is? It can determine the chemical composition of anything with great precision. The sun's composition is precisely known. How it produces light and heat is known also. Did you go to school? Children are taught this. Nuclear fusion operates on the same principle as the sun.

People have landed on the moon and brought bits back. The moon is called "the moon" because it is a moon.

Circles have no beginning and no end.

Yeah... thanks for mentioning the "moon rocks." The one given to the Netherlands was analyzed in a lab... and it turns out it was petrified wood. After that little scandal, they wanted to analyze the "moon rock" that had been given to the Queen, but it had disappeared.

Your complete trust in your gods of government and scientism are duly noted.

So how can someone start a flight in a city, head off in one direction, stay on that course, and come back to where he started? It's been done, non-stop, by a solar powered aircraft. There were two pilots. By your reckoning they would have never come back.

Your complete and total ignorance of God's laws of nature and the glory of His creation are duly noted. You belong in the age of witchcraft, magic and alchemy.

Sure, fakery has always been a problem. But there has to be the real before there can be a fake.

The Brazilian author in this video mentions that there are 10-14 million Brazilians who think the Earth is flat. The concept is gaining traction around the world despite the Establishment's censorship.
2 Timothy 4:

"…3For the time will come when men will not tolerate sound doctrine, but with itching ears they will gather around themselves teachers to suit their own desires. 4So they will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths."

Without a doubt, that time has come. This time is not far away:

2 Thessalonians 2:

"9The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the working of Satan, with every kind of power, sign, and false wonder, 10and with every wicked deception directed against those who are perishing, because they refused the love of the truth that would have saved them. 11For this reason God will send them a powerful delusion so that they believe the lie, 12in order that judgment may come upon all who have disbelieved the truth and delighted in wickedness."
Then perhaps you could explain - with Ball Earth physics - how those events occurred...?

How did the sun "stand still" and "back up" without stopping or reversing the earth's rotation?
Easy. God created the sun and earth. He can do whatever He likes with it. Physics depends on natural laws. God overrules when it suits Him. Jesus walked on water. You won't explain that by physics.

If you only understood just how "backwards" this statement really is... :eek:

I suggest that there is a very high probability that @JStates understands "God's laws of nature and the glory of His creation" far better than you can ever hope to understand.

(Unless, of course, one day you decide to stop taking those daily blue pills and take the red one. [MATRIX movie reference])

He is living in the age of witchcraft, magic and alchemy - and, so are you...

Those three words all apply to the modern pharmaceutical industry - which the Bible indicates [to us] is the 'sorcery' that Satan uses to deceive the whole world.
