Testing Flattards
# Hey guys!

[Cool Hard Logic](https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx3s3t5kpD4VMfJjDi5keXw) is a YouTube channel all flattards should avoid visiting. This guy has been doing a terrific job ~~shilling the round Earth theory~~ ehhmm debunking flattards and their unbelievably dumb claims. I know, this shouldn't be that hard to do, but this guy does it in an epic manner. Definitely worth your time. Well, unless you're a flattard yourself. In which case YOU are not worth OUR time. Meh.

# Okay.

As I've said multiple times in the past, this whole flat Earth concept sounds way too retarded for me, but still, I've taken the time to write [a few words on the topic](https://steemit.com/showcase-sunday/@lordneroo/showcase-sunday-one-simple-reason-why-the-earth-is-not-flat) as well, mainly focusing on the nature and mechanics of gravity, trying to provide proof as to why such a theory is totally insane.

However, I do realize that no amount of evidence would be enough to convince a person with such low mental capacity. Having been involved in multiple conversations with people who believe this nonsense, I am starting to see a pattern now. It's all a cover up to them. The government won't let you do this, go there or see that. The government this and that.

To be honest, I really don't see how the ''government'' would benefit from such a concept. I also fail to see how they could hide the ''truth'' from all of us, when it literally takes just a boat for a flat earther to spot the edges of this flat Earth. Who knows what really goes on in their tortured minds?

Okay, to cut to the chase, this guy is doing awesome work. If you want to have a good laugh at this ridiculous theory, I would suggest watching this ''Testing Flattards'' series. I stumbled upon these videos yesterday night, and I had a really good time watching them.

# No hope.
Well, if you ask me, I think it's such a terrible shame that despite all the knowledge we possess and technological progress made so far, some human beings, who unfortunately consume precious oxygen and water, like to believe in such ridiculous theories that can be easily debunked and proven wrong. 

[Eratosthenes](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eratosthenes) managed to measure the Earth's circumference  some 2300 years ago, however Joe on Facebook thinks otherwise and has decided to create a flat Earth group for all awakened, enlightened individuals out there looking to bring back the medieval times. What a noble cause. Thank you, geniuses.

As for us, round Earth retards, we will continue living our lives on a spinning ball revolving around the Sun, travelling together with the entire heliocentric solar system through the galaxy. I know, we are doomed.

I appreciate your attention.

I agree, there's only so much you can do, but as long as some people are putting out there information ''supporting'' the flat Earth theory, we have to counter that by debunking their claims and making fun of them.

Stop misleading people about the Earth being round. Earth's shape is oblate spheroid.

Facepalm...

I'm a surveying Engineer, I know what the shape of the Earth is like. I never said it was perfectly round, but it is ROUND with an equatorial radius of approximately 6378 km.

> A spheroid, or ellipsoid of revolution, is a quadric surface obtained by rotating an ellipse about one of its principal axes; in other words, an ellipsoid with two equal semi-diameters. A spheroid has circular symmetry.

> An oblate spheroid is a famous shape. It is the shape of the Earth and some other planets. It is like a sphere squashed from the top so the diameter from pole to pole is less than the diameter from equator to equator. Shapes of this type are called ellipsoids.

Prolate and oblate spheroids have circular symmetry which translates into one thing: THEY ARE ROUND.

Thanks. Us "round Earth retards" as your post puts it are required to keep our story straight. Otherwise we'd have no single agreed upon model and Mr. Wizard would be spinning in his grave.
