Just curious. I can see how one could come up with an separate ad hoc flat earth explanation for many other phenomenon for which a spherical earth provides s single cohesive unified explanation.

But I am stumped by How flat earther can reconcile the fact that the sun can be seen overhead in new York and seen setting in London at the same time, but look exactly the same size from both locations? I am having trouble seeing how that can be explained away without postulating some curvature to the earth.

Yep, they don't believe there is a South Pole at all. And that means the guy who lives here year 'round is in on Big Sphere's BS.

He's probably the ringleader, out there in his fortress of solitude.  That's the perfect place to orchestrate a conspiracy from.
Eat em up beat em up then switch sides.

Come on

Like a thousand astronauts, cosmonauts, and taikonauts across 15 languages are all lying, plus god knows how many engineers, technicians and mission control specialists all lied. Even the satellites and ISS visible to the naked eye at night lied.

What's do hard be believe that one dude who walked/cross-country skied across Antarctic lied?

Oh...
"Of course, everyone will claim they respect someone who tries to speak the truth, but in reality, this is a rare quality. Most respect those who speak truths they agree with, and their respect for the speaking only extends as far as their realm of personal agreement. It is less common, almost to the point of becoming a saintly virtue, that someone truly respects and loves the truth seeker, even when their conclusions differ wildly."
