    I presented numerous arguments in all 3 debates which went unrefuted. 
     
  • Round 2 | Position: Against
    SilverishGoldNova
  • Round 3 | Position: For
    There are only 3 hours left to argue. Is my opponent working on a rebuttal, have they given up, or have they conceeded?

    1. Eclipses:

    The explanation for eclipses is that there is an invisible object in a circuit above the Earth along with the sun and moon called Rahu

    2. Boats over the Horizon:

    Grab a pair of binoculars. 

    3. Varying constellations:



    4. The Eratosthenes experiment



    5. Seeing farther from higher?

    How is this proof of a globe? Seriously? The article explains that if you climb a tree and grab a pair of binoculars, you can see even further. At best thats proof of a flat Earth. 

    Speaking of which 



    6. Airplane curvature

    Did you read my opening arguments?

    7. "The other planets"

    So, if the other planets are round, the Earth is? 

    Aww, look at the cute dog in the bottom right corner



    8. Time zones

    Pre-refuted. Also

    9. Gravity

    Thats easy. Drop a microphone. It falls because it is more dense than the air. At the same time balloons rise because they are more dense.



    10. NASA imagery.

    The NASA argument was also pre-refuted. I don't think my opponent actually looked at my arguments.
