(4.7 stars; 39 reviews)

A bit of pseudo-science that will baffle, confuse, and amaze! Until the Space Age, there was little every-day, self-evident proof that the earth was a globe, and plenty of people believed in a flat Earth. (Even today, some are still of this opinion.) Here are 100 short arguments for a flat Earth. Some of them can be proven wrong fairly easily; others confound; and others are stated so confusingly that they MUST be true! - Summary by TriciaG

“‘One Hundred Proofs that the Earth is Not a Globe,’ by William Carpenter, is published by the author, whose novel and rather startling position is certainly fortified by a number of argumentative points, which, if they do not shake the reader’s preconceived notions on the subject, will, at least, be found entertaining for the style in which they are put.”—Evening Star, Philadelphia, July 22, 1886.

An absolutely amazing book indeed.

(5 stars)

The immense perversion of the sciences is an important reason to atheism - combined with utter ignorance of history, ancient in particular and archeology and of course in regards to the Holy Christian Scriptures. Btw. Christianity is NOT universalist, far from. It is "racist " in essence and that is very positive indeed.

Excellent Info
