There's are at least two simple solutions
to this stupidity.
You can do them yourself!
- Friend's word
- Get a reliable friend whose word you trust.
that both of you have working cell
Set them to international communications.
- One of you then
flies to a spot supposedly around the globe. For example, it might be
8am where you are in New York and supposedly 3am in Hawaii.
- You know
that the sun has risen in New York. What's it doing in Hawaii?
- Confirm each other's observations by using a
to your friend about which of you is deluded or how flying on an
airplane must be time travel or ... maybe the earth is spherical after
- If you have lots of friends around the planet,
set up a
google group video conference call and compare the locations
of the sun, moon and stars while talking to each other.
Repeat the experiment of Eratosthenes.
google: greek mathematician earth is round
Force the person who convinced you that the earth is flat
to do these simple experiments.
