The Top 10 Flat Earth Arguments Debunked

In this video we debunk the 10 most common arguments in favour of the flat Earth model that we see. The flat Earth debate has really flared up in recent months with a great deal of misinformation floating about, so we decided to refute a portion of it.

It is worth noting that there will be arguments that we haven’t addressed, but due to the sheer number of flat Earth arguments that exist it is unrealistic to expect this video to debunk every flat Earth argument. It is designed to debunk the arguments we picked (weird that I feel I have to point this out).

P.S a few times during recording we accidentally said “if the sun was flat” that is just a slip of the tongue as it had been a long recording day, I can confirm we did mean to say Earth. Sorry about that!
