Introduction

There is a person called Eric Dubay who claims to offer 200 proofs that the earth is flat. He is wrong in every way. 

He doesn’t really offer 200 proofs, because he repeats himself again and again.

They aren’t ‘proofs’  because they are consistently wrong, illogical, based on false statements or on misunderstandings. 

And the earth really isn’t flat!

I don't expect you to take my word for that. It's the last thing I'd want. 

Please read these refutations, follow up the evidence links, try the experiments I suggest so that you can see for yourself. 


I’ve tried to make these replies understandable to everybody, with no more technical stuff than is absolutely necessary to make  the point. I’ve also suggested ways that you can test the important questions for yourself.
I’ve written many of these replies myself, but sometimes I’ve drawn on other peoples work online. If you want to explore further, try these sources to get you started:

A blog by a physicist and bit more technical than mine. Good if you want the arguments in more detail and gives some different source links:
