    the way sunsets and sunrises work should be proof enough that this is impossible. You see the sunrise/set, you fly to the other side of the country, and BOOM! It's a completely different time of day and the sun might not even be visible yet. That wouldn't happen (at least not to nearly that effect) if the world was flat. The sun would just look smaller or light would be coming from a weird angle

    I'd be interested to know what the flat Earth argument against this post is if any?

    You really dont want to know. Just reading their explanation will cause you to lose iq points. 

     

    Also if the earth were flat gravity would make it literally impossible to ever get near the edge. Oh wait they dont believe in gravity either. I guess being able to observe, test, repeat and make predictions with it just isnt enough to prove the force exists. 
    Where would the center of gravity on earth fall if it were a flat space.

    Not entirely sure. The directional force of gravity would change depending on what part of the earth you where standing on. If you were in the center gravity would be pulling you more or less straight down. At the edges it would be pushing you back towards the center at an angle. i would assume the center of gravity would be somewhere below the center of the flat plane but i dont know that for certain. It is also 3am here and i cant be bothered to attempt to figure out the answer for certain at this hour.

    Assuming Newtonian gravity yes, in the centre it would be directly downwards but as you go further out it would be more angled so that it's like walking up a hill that gets steeper and steeper.  VSauce covered this a while back:

    I tried but Torn sent me a Waring saying "videos containing any nudity is prohibited."
