The world is flat, and much bigger than you ever guessed. There is no 'solar system'. Any pictures of the 'globe' are creations to instill faith in the globes at your library and in your schools, both institutions created to support this illusion. If you have ever been in a plane and noticed the 'curvature of the earth' it is a trick of the light. The pilot is flying to points on a map he has faith in, because he has 'seen the globe'. He has never flown where he is not allowed. He has never made a map. There are places to go in this world that you know nothing about.

A paragraph from a decade ago meant to incite a debate that never happened. I like to imagine some day a few of us will find each other here at the same time, and professionals will distinguish themselves from amateurs by degree of complication and severity of insults, learning and teaching SCP style. Here's how I word that shit 10 years later:

The world is flat, and possibly much bigger than you ever guessed. There is no 'solar system'. We are not located in the spiral arm of a 'galaxy'. Any images of the 'globe' are paintings, photoshop or cgi - creations designed to instill faith in the globes at your library and in your schools - images to justify the existence of NASA and other institutions. If you have ever been in a plane and noticed the 'curvature of the earth' it is a trick of perspective - the one thing in nature I would debate the perfect sphericity of is the range of our physical senses. The pilot is flying to points on a map he has faith in, never pausing to consider the gyroscope that is his artificial horizon cannot function as intended on a globe. He has never flown where he is not allowed. There are places to go in this world that you know nothing about. Beyond the Antarctic Circle, for example.
