This Flat Earth Deception post features a meme about train tracks on the flat earth.
Shane Brownell posted this meme on the Flat Earthers in Christ Facebook group, saying “Freight trains are NOT possible if the Earth had measurable curvature. There is no measured curvature. None! I worked with trains and they can only operate on a flat plane.”
I live in Colorado, where the land is certainly not flat. Trains travel up and over the Rocky Mountains.
Even in a place like Kansas, for every mile that a train travels, it only has to curve down by 8 inches.
Comments from members in the Flat Earthers in Christ group include:
Ray Stan they say the world is 25000 miles around. even if the earth was 25 miles around the train can still go around like a roller coaster. but there needs to be strong down force
Ray Stan so trains from 1 side of the country travelling 3000 miles to another side of the country must be perfectly flat. not a cm elevated on each side?
Tyler Christensen This meme is not making sense to me. Trains go up through mountain ranges all the time. As a Conductor/switch men in WA state, we’re constantly working with the grade of the terrain. And we have some huge passes to go through.
It’s great that members are at least seeing the absurdity of the claim in this flat earth meme!
