HomeConspiracyFlat Earth Theory Totally Trashed Log in

This year I was surprised to learn that some people still believe the earth is flat, not a globe! And not only that, I hear the Flat Earth Theory has been gaining momentum and popularity the past six months on YouTube and other alternate media! Just enter in Google “flat earth theory” and you will get 95,100 results.

I suspect the Flat Earth idea could be a trick of the NWO (New World Order) people to confuse and mislead those who study conspiracies. Is conspiracy study a contemporary phenomenon? It is not! History tells us that conspiracies against the general population to enrich the ruling elite have existed from time immemorial.

Is everything NASA is telling us a lie? Some people think that because NASA says so, it must be a lie! They distrust everything NASA has to say, and with good reasons. But in this case I do not think we should take NASA as the final authority on the subject. Did the concept of a spiracle earth originate from the National American Space Agency of the 20th century? No. A spherical earth has been postulated from the time of Aristotle who lived from 384 – 322 BC)! There is NO scientist of any reputation whatsoever who has held a Flat Earth hypothesis. There is NO THEOLOGIAN (please correct me if I am wrong) either Roman Catholic or Protestant who has EVER taught Flat Earth Theory.

One reason for the Flat Earth Youtube phenomenon could be that the NWO people want to group climate change deniers in the same category as the flat earth people. This is diabolical! Climate change deniers have reputable scientists such as John G. Hartnett on their side, but flat earth theory people have absolutely none.

One of my friends suggested that Flat Earth may be a conspiracy from NASA itself! All of the Flat Earthers are people who believe the Moon Walk was a hoax. Because those who believe in a flat earth appear to be fools in the sight of the rest of the world, nobody will listen to them about other conspiracies even though they may be true. Could therefore Flat Earth be a conspiracy against those who believe the Moon Walk hoax conspiracy? Or any of the other popular conspiracies such as who killed JFK, 911, NWO exposes, etc.? Is there such a thing as a conspiracy against those who believe in conspiracies? It sure seems so to me! The YouTubes that promote Flat Earth sound good and reasonable. The ideas came from intelligent minds in order to mislead and confuse. In other words, the modern creators of Flat Earth Theory may be highly intelligent people who were paid to lie! And sadly so far, three dear friends of mine have bought it. It really makes me mad!!!

This young man in the Youtube explains the Flat Earth Theory phenomenon quite well and eloquently.

I want to present something that the video does not cover. If the earth is indeed flat, we should be able to see land across an ocean with a powerful telescope. We can’t. We should be able to see land of the opposite coast of Lake Michigan while standing at Navy Pier in Chicago. We can’t. Land 48 miles away is barely visible from the top observatory of the Willis Tower in Chicago, and this distance is only half of the average width of Lake Michigan, the distance from Illinois and Wisconsin to the State of Michigan on Lake Michigan’s eastern shore.

The picture below shows Lake Michigan and the city of Chicago on its southern western shore.

Lake Michigan

Lake Michigan

This picture shows the approximate distance from the Chicago Loop (the city center) to the eastern shore of the state of Michigan which is about 48 miles or 76.8 kilometers. I used Google Earth on my PC to measure this distance.


Using the Earth Curve Calculator on https://dizzib.github.io/earth/curve-calc/ I set my eye height at 5.5 feet and the target distance at 48 miles. The Earth Curve Calculator calculated the eastern shore of Lake Michigan at 1358 feet below the horizon!


Let’s say I was standing on Lake Shore Drive, the road in Chicago that runs parallel with Lake Michigan. My eye height above the surface of Lake Michigan is at least 20 feet. That would make the Michigan shoreline 1205 feet below the horizon which is 5.5 miles away.

Now let’s say I went to the top observatory deck of the tallest building in Chicago, the Willis Tower (formerly called the Sears Tower), which is approximately 1400 feet from my eye height to the surface of Lake Michigan. The eastern shore can be seen, but not much.


Does this mean if I could get just a bit higher from the ground at that point I could see more of the opposite shore of Lake Michigan? It sure does. Once when flying from Detroit back to Chicago I saw the western shore of Lake Michigan when crossing the coast of Lake Michigan from its easterhn shore. Others have reported seeing both sides of Lake Michigan from an airplane. This absolutely PROVES the curvature of the earth!

The photo below was taken from the approximate height of the sky-deck observatory of the Willis Tower. As you can see, land on the opposite side of Lake Michigan is not visible, only a water horizon can be seen.

I have heard that from the observatory deck of the Willis Tower, the coast of Michigan is indeed visible, but not very much of it. More of it can be seen from a higher altitude. This proves curvature of the earth. Even if someone says the math in this article is incorrect, the plain fact is the higher you go, the further away the horizon gets. This proves curvature of the earth. I don’t need NASA or a school text book to tell me this. I have validated it from my own experience when looking out a window of an airplane.

Will this help change the minds of flat earth theorists? I don’t know. One of my friends remains unconvinced. He cannot explain in his own words satisfactorily to me why I cannot see the Michigan shoreline from Chicago. He said weather or visibility has something to do with it. But the photo of from height of the Willis Tower looking across Lake Michigan shows a clear sky. He is in denial! There is only one thing he can do: Throw YouTubes at me made by unknown people with no credentials. I saw a couple of those YouTubes and they are filled with nothing but specious arguments!

specious argument

Noun: an argument that appears good at first view but is really fallacious

falsely appearing to be fair, just, or right : appearing to be true but actually false

I learned it’s easy to fool people, but a magnitude harder to convince them that they have been fooled. I flew around the earth once going west and I wound up back to where I started. It only took me 20 years to do it. :-)

I’m using Chicago and Lake Michigan as an example because I was raised in Chicago and have been to Lake Michigan countless times. It’s 87 times larger than the largest lake in Japan, Lake Biwa. The opposite shore of lake Biwa is clearly visible. I often tell the Japanese that Lake Michigan looks like an ocean.

Here’s a view of Lake Michigan from a satellite:


Flat Earth theory is false!

Standing on one of those sand dunes 100 feet above the surface of Lake Michigan would put the horizon 12 miles away and this would hide the bottom 187 feet of those buildings. This proves curvature of not only the earth, but of Lake Michigan itself!

When I flew from Chicago to Japan, the pilot flew northwest which took me over Canada, Alaska, and the eastern part of Russia. The spherical model of the earth shows me that going northwest is the shortest route!

This video presents good info but the young man sometimes uses strong language:

This is only 3 minutes, 22 seconds and fun to watch!

One of my friends told me that all science is bunk and you cannot trust any of it! If that were true there would be no modern technology today. You certainly wouldn’t be reading this article from your PC, Tablet or phone.

Another point: Curvature of the earth was proven over 500 years ago in 1492 when Columbus sailed the ocean blue. And Ferdinand Magellan’s expedition circumvented the earth from 1519 to 1522. So to say we get the idea of a global earth from NASA is to ignore history.

Another cool YouTube that refutes Flat Earth Theory:

Folks, those who say the earth is flat are either lying or totally deceived.

Flat Earth Theory Totally Trashed — 10 Comments

  1. Not even a single fact in here proving the earth has curvature. Every mile results in 6 inches of curvature but then in factors of prime. The skyline should be hundreds of feet below the horizon. Also show me an actual video of the earth spinning in HD from outer space. The whole earth. Then tell me why NASA photos all show continents at different sizes and tell me why they are still using the false map.

    • You make no explanation for any of the dozen or so points that are completely irrefutable. Seeing far distances……Time zones……star patterns……..Moon visibility……..So what you are really saying is no matter what you can’t prove to me the earth is flat because you don’t have a spaceship……When snow is in the forecast and you fall asleep and wake up to see snow on the ground do you believes it snowed or that a magic fairy placed it there? You didn’t see it fall? Science uses observation and experiment to make conclusions…….You don’t

  2. Hi James Japan. I was looking into the flat earth theory a while back as I was hearing it being preached on various Christian and conspiracy online radio programs. I have seen no evidence that convinces me that the earth is flat as of yet. Although some amateur space explorers did send a balloon and rocket into space with a video camera not long ago, and they seemed to document a flat earth, but this was not enough evidence for me. I try to always remain open minded as I believe many conspiracy theories out there are true, but I have simply not seen enough evidence to convince me that the earth is flat. I believe we need to “prove all things” as the Bible says. Also, if you own an amateur telescope you can clearly observe that all of the planets in our solar system are in fact round and not flat. If the earth was flat then surely the other planets in our solar system would be flat also. Regarding other comments people are making about David Brandt Berg, I think people are being a bit rough by calling David Berg various bad names. David Berg did help bring many youth to the Lord in the 1960’s & 70’s, so he did do many good things and helped get a lot of people saved. David Berg to his credit did write about the New World Order and John Todd before anyone was really discussing these issues, so this also gives Berg some credibility in my eyes. I think James Japan is adding some more layers onto David Berg’s work by addressing the: Vatican, Jesuit Order and Protestant Reformation. Separation from Rome and adhering to the doctrines of the protestant reformation are vital components of being a Biblical Christian.

  3. I believe in the flat earth theory from a scientifical standpoint. I was for a long time atheist like most Swedes tend to be and I have been studying all the western knowledge hard with Mathematics and Engineering on a high level. I have also studying painting on my free time.

    Now from my belief and rational thinking I now believe the earth is flat. First I can attest to not being Christian, but believe in popery domination could be true. The law of perspectives dictate the further away an object exist the smaller it gets and from Physics we know there is an limit to the eyesight as the angle gets smaller to a limit. Eagles as we know can see much farther than us humans.

    The sunrise and sunset is actually an optical illusion. The sun does not go down it is just moving away from us. The sun can be seen 24-7 on the northern hemisphere during the summer because the sun just moved not far enough the sun lights could still hit us. That would be impossible on a round earth. Search myperspective on Youtube for video on this.

    Secondly, how far the eye sees is limited by how up high we move on a mountain. On a round earth the horizon would become more and more rounder the higher we go. I saw a great Photo on this from a geographic interested Christian.

    Thanks anyway for opening my eyes on the popery. I got deluded for a while on a Swiss conspiracy, but decided that both sources were not believable.


  4. Dear brother, im not decieved nor im trying to decieve anyone but since i saw a lot of proof i do believe that the earth is flat! there aber many biblical passages for that which is the most important part. For example Math. 4,8. The videos you are showing here are debunked already, please try to take a closer look into it! and no, the vatican is not trying to set it up to mislead the people, its the opposite! God is showing us more and more truth because we live in the false tribulation and the real will start in 2021/22. and knowledge will rise Daniel says.
    alone the flight routes proof that. check it out, dont have fear James, dont try to run away from it! And how come you trust blind this false prophet and deciever david berg?
    Paul from Canada

    • Dear Paul,
      I have three points for you.

      #1 It’s interesting you bring up David Berg because if you look carefully on this website, the preponderance of the articles exposing the Vatican and the Jesuits and the Pope as the Biblical Antichrist are not part of his teachings! And my new views on the 70th Week of Daniel being fulfilled by Jesus Christ and not some future Antichrist are definitely opposite of what David Berg taught me. Does not that make your statement about me blindly trusting him untrue?

      #2 I don’t believe you are intentionally trying to deceive anyone but if you believe in Flat Earth, I believe you have been misled. There is not a single Bible believing Christian of any reputation who has ever taught flat earth, and there is no scientist of any reputation who has taught flat earth. I have proven to myself the earth is round. The higher I go above sea level the further away the horizon appears. Just looking out the window of an airplane shows me that. If you don’t accept the physical / mathematical principles behind why this is so, brother, you are in denial.

      #3 Setting dates like 2021/22 is a no no. Jesus said so in Matthew 24:36:

      But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

      Jesus said only the FATHER KNOWS! If you say YOU KNOW, you are not basing your views on the Word of God.

  5. One. The truth is really that none of the real scholars believed in ancient history included that the earth was flat.

    It was a later biographer of Columbus that invented the idea that Christopher Columbus had “disproved the Earth was flat”. That was hyperbole. They all knew India was “that way” (east) but they thought it was too far to be practical for the ships they could build. Many Greeks wrote that the Earth was round. In Job is a verse that lifts up God as the one who “hung the earth on nothing”, and somewhere else the Bible refers to the “circle of Earth”.

    If the Flat Earth Society (or ?) is having a resurgence, it is to bolster the very much failed hoax of “global warming”. Mark Stein is on a youtube video from a climate conference hosted by the Heartland Institute, where he shares about the “hockey stick fraud”, in which Michael Mann’s hockey stick warming graph is proven to be a hoax (not to mention his part in the Climate-gate scandal that also exposed them).

    The Bad Guys Club is getting desperate to control the wild Internet. Things are coming together in the Middle East according to Bible prophecy and David Berg’s prophecies, so God help us to be prepared.
