    Earth needs to see a dermatologist in Boyle Heights, named Lancelot.... (half off on nose jobs).

    Same reason I'm glad the Lakers traded Alphonso Ball (might step on a staple at Staples Center and go flat).

    The late Jerry Buss, owner of the Lakers, was really nice (offered me jelly beans). I told him that it took a lot of talent to play basketball on a lake. I told him that I thought they made the lake by dribbling.

    Hiya, fella.

    Flat Earthers aren't claiming the world was once very briefly flat. They are saying that the world is flat now. This is an important point to note.

    Also, the Earth briefly being flat implies pretty different laws of physics than the ones we know so we'd have to account for the universe temporarily conforming to rules that allow for the stable existence of discs with Earth mass that aren't deformed by their own gravitation/tidal forces. Lumps of matter beyond a certain mass pull themselves into spheres.

    All of this makes the matter much more unlikely without the use of God's magic and if you are going to invoke God's magic why not make any unevidenced claim like, the Earth was a chocolate button for ten minutes in April 1992?

    No problem with Physics or Cosmology in Flat Earth regime. It was God's thing, like greenhouse.

    How nice. If my proofs of Riemann and abc conjectures get published, then any my
    subsequent texts will be positively peer-reviewed and published. No text
    will be unpublished. Why? Because the Science and Math are based on authority.

    Before the Great Flood the God has not hesitated to show His power and ability.
    That is why Flat Earth is like your greenhouse. It is like your aquarium.

    And all this qualifies you how exactly to claim that the Earth is flat? My BS meter is at 8.5 and rising.

    Well, I that apparently explains the climate crisis. That stuff is just terrible and doesn't last long. Should've plugged it.

    Set up a scale of this using a light bulb, a flat disc, and something to rotate the disc with. The lighting and shadows of what you see on the simulated Sun and Earth will not match the patterns we observe happening every day.

    I can explain the Theory of Evolution "man came from animals, but
    he remained animal" as result of the authority of Charles Darwin
    and satan. In Eastern Orthodox Church we write satan, with small s,
    because we are not respecting enemy of Jesus. Jesus is person, and
    satan has nothing in common with Jesus. Therefore, satan must be
    written with small s.

    It is inevitable to have the head of science and math. I could take this function, with help of Jesus. Researches will be happy and free under us.

    I am not trying to mock you, but out of concern for you.
    How could you be head of any scientific institution when nobody take you seriously enough to put anything you write in to scientific magazin or websites :confused:

    Isn't that a clue that you are not in the top ten of scientists in the world?

    People hate me everywhere, this is because I am not in the
    top ten of scientists in the world. I wait for the opinion of Jesus. His opinion is both objective and subjective. There are many drunk idiots in most high circles.

    Why do you Mix Jesus in to your scientific study?

    Why am I having Jesus in my scientific quest? He is inside me. Why I am mixing my right hand into my scientific activity? Because it helps me to write papers. Why I am mixing my toilet room into research activities? Because my brain must function.
