Falkor, just because Turner voted to remain in the EU doesn't mean he's in cahoots with the MSM. And even if it does, it doesn't mean his telescope is faulty!
I've heard you use the term we are "special"...and following the RayManz link, I heard another flat earther emphasize that term, all the while talking about the deceptions of the devil.
Alas, this is your downfall...as it is the downfall of the proverbial Lucifer.
Man (kind) is the fallout of the desire to be special. Everybody is infected with the desire. To the degree we can resist the temptation, to that degree the proverbial devil and it's deceptions must loosen it's grip on our mind..
A long time ago, I identified this desire to be central to man's apparent existence, everything else orbiting around the man. And I identified the Catholic Church's flat earth science some centuries ago as motivated by the desire to be special, it having long since abandoned Christ to serve the agenda of Christ's opposition.
For those who don't know, there isn't anything special about Christ, as Christ exists in a world/reality in which all living beings are perfect, and perfectly equal. Whereas in this world, not much of anything is truly equal to anything else, not even snowflakes. This all derives from the desire to be special, which is what motivates the exhibition of all that is unequal.
Inequality is synonymous with iniquity, which must separate itself from equality (Christ), in order to be special. And this is the history of our separation from truth and reality.
So, by using this term "special", as if it were a good thing, you've betrayed your standing to those of us well versed in the etymology of deception.
You are not standing on solid philosophical ground.
Whether round or flat, the earth is a deception. You strengthen that deception when you promulgate this false dichotomy.
This knowledge does make me special...technically speaking. But the difference between you and me is it is no longer my driving force.
And so, it's not so easy to decieve me.
If I was forced to pick which of two illusions was truest, round or flat, first I remind myself I don't have to pick between what does not exist in reality (in the world of Christ).
Then, in order to circumnavigate, i come down in favor of round, as the consensus illusion that works best for everybody who will eventually escape the temptation of special existence.
Indeed, there is not much special about conforming to the consensus (illusion ). The alternative is to be special, and fall for delusion.
I am not surprised your trusted sources include priests.
I would not expect your trusted sources to be the same as other flat earther sources (the bible), as then, you would not be special.
