Aside from the relative ease by which one can visit, you can also easily get jobs in Antarctica, as few people want to work there and they are always hiring for everything from janitors to bartenders at the research bases.
How would being a bartender at a research base allow you to test the theory of whether it was the end of the earth?

Full disclosure (as I would hope all FEers would practice): One of the FEers, Rob Skiba, says he has talked to someone who worked as a cook in Antarctica, who had flown between locations there. The flight times appear to make more sense on a globe map than a FE map.

Skiba's, and my remaining reservations center around the map of the southern hemisphere. There apparently are direct flights between Sydney and Santiago, Chile, taking between 11.5 and 14.5 hours. On the usual FE maps you see the distance between them is too far to be flown in that time. You'd need Australia and South America to be a little bit closer. Some online have shown revised maps where this would work, and one guy made the flight with his compass, which always pointed northwest, as a flat earth map would suggest. All FEers agree that an obviously correct map has never been put forward, and the one you usually see is simply a reproduction of the UN logo.

Meanwhile, in the world of astrophysics settled science, a new black hole has been discovered that is 13.1 billion light years away from earth. It's all right there in that sky you see, plain as day (to the cognoscenti). You have simply but to believe with a childlike faith.

Don't forget that mysterious dark matter, which is lurking out there, increasing the mass of the universe and slowing it down!

What is unclear about Article VII, section 1 of the Antarctica treaty? You have to get permission of the United States or the government of whichever signatory nation you are a citizen of if you want to go there, for employment or any other purpose. Try getting that permission for unbridled exploration.

Can you give me a quote" Article VII, section one is talking about observers beng put in place to oversee treaty compliance.

"Article VII

1. In order to promote the objectives and ensure the observance of the provisions of the present treaty, each Contracting Party whose representatives are entitled to participate in the meetings referred to in Article IX of the treaty shall have the right to designate observers to carry out any inspection provided for by the present Article. Observers shall be nationals of the Contracting Parties which designate them. The names of observers shall be communicated to every other Contracting Party having the right to designate observers, and like notice shall be given of the termination of their appointment. "

Standard statutory construction -- if the state is given the prerogative to designate observers, it is implied that those not so designated do not have that right. And that is in fact the case in Antarctica.

Because you cannot be named an official Antarctic Treaty compliance observer, it means you can not go to Antarctic at all? That is an amazing stretch! Thousands of people a year go to the Antarctic a year that are certainly not treaty compliance observing officials...tourists, various scientific groups, environmental groups and extreme sports addicts.

Oh come on. You're just arguing for the sake of arguing. No one -- whether someone going on one of the pre-arranged tours, being employed there, going as a scientific observer, etc. -- goes there without the approval of the government of which he is a citizen. "Compliance observer" is your language. It is not in the treaty. If you go to Antarctica to explore it, you will need the approval of the U.S. government. Period.

In this paragraph is clearly states that signatory countries have the right to appoint observers to conduct inspections as defined in the treaty in order to ensure the observance of provisions of the treaty. If "ensuring the observations of the provisions of the treaty" is not about compliance, you command of the language is suspect. Im quoting from the treaty. Tell me, seriously, that "Ensuring the observations of the provisions of the treaty" is not about COMPLIANCE. You are losing it. And no, everyone who goes to Antarctica is not an appointed treaty observer.
All this, just about your imaginary 100,000 mile long ice wall and a host of other crazy shit. Documenting such would be the story of the century, but flat earthers can't seem to find anything south of the equator because they are following the delusional maps. It is simple geometry. Southern hemisphere navigation would be so far off that all transport calculations based on the globe would be drastically off if the flat earth were a fact. Airplanes could not even carry enough fuel for what are now already long trips. Ships and airplanes would run out of fuel. Many millions of square miles of land would be created in Africa, Australia and South America. Just imagine a flat earth country of Chile...a 100 miles wide at the north and a thousand miles wide at the south. It would be shaped like a pyramid.Apparently tens of thousands of people turned away from visiting the Antarctic, you just cant find any of these people.

One of the first things you would learn in law school is to read a statute by looking at "the four corners of the document." That means you read all of it, and construe it in that context. Read sections 2, 3, 4 and 5 of Article VII, and tell me these people are designated only as a sort of compliance police, or whatever the hell you're arguing. The people so designated in Article VII are the ones who get to explore Antarctica, and they are the only ones.

The circumference of the earth is estimated by FEers to be somewhere around 50,000+ miles, which corresponds with Capt. Cook's diary about attempting to sail around it, including sailing from England. Not 100,000, as you say. You're just making shit up.

Hilarious to hear a flat earther talk about making shit up! I double checked, The navigationally useless flat earth fabricated maps tend to depict an Antarctic circumference of 60,000 to 78,000 miles. Tens of thousands of people visit Antarctica every year just from Argentina, New Zealand and Antarctica. No permission from the USA required. More would be coming from those places but they are busy exploring the millions if square miles of additional land that flat earthers created out of thin air. ..making shit up?
A flat earth map should be much easier to create than a globe map...

Obviously you didn't read the statute with any care. Argentinians would be required to get permission from their government, New Zealanders from theirs, not the U.S.

Feel free to cite the sources for the thousands of visitors from Argentina, New Zealand and Antarctica (sic), and the scope of their visits.

According to Eric Dubay, probably the most prominent FEer, the circumference of the earth is 50,000 miles and some. But as I said, there is no settled flat earth map.

How would being a bartender at a research base allow you to test the theory of whether it was the end of the earth?
You'd be in the mythical place they say you can't go. You'd see basically most of what went in there. You could ask about ongoing research, etc. And you'd get to take in the whole journey there.

Have you guys noticed that those "actors" (if they are) on the ISS do not look like high calibre or high quality people? They look kind of goofy and not serious. Like goofballs or hillbillies, the kind of people who will do anything for money. Do you get that feeling from them too? It's as if the ISS has low criteria or low qualifications on who they will accept as a crew member. It's as if the screening process was simply:

Q: Are you willing to participate in a hoax if we pay you? And will you keep it a secret for life under penalty of death and the death of your loved ones?
A: Yeah sure. Why not? Sounds like a good deal! Let's do it!
Q: Ok we will prepare the contracts for you to sign. You will then be briefed further.

If so, then NASA would not try to recruit anyone to be an ISS crew member. Certainly not someone like Adama that gripes about truth and morals and God. They would look at the background of the applicant and pick people who have a history of lying for money and showing no conscience about it. Right?
A man who views things with the simplicity of a tubby alcoholic Chinese farmer that looks the part saying that the PhDs riding on the ISS seem like hillbillies is the most ironic thing I've come across in months. Astronauts are specifically selected to be charismatic ambassadors of science, in addition to having research-level credentials in the sciences and personalities that can handle the isolation of space.
Well then you must be blind, deaf and dumb, or dishonest as well. Most of the Apollo astronauts are bland and lifeless and have no personality or charisma at all. Everyone knows that. Have you seen Neil Armstrong? He was uncomfortable on camera and didn't like to be interviewed and shied away from it. The only astronaut who likes all the publicity is Buzz Aldrin. None of the people on the ISS have any charisma. Do you even know what charisma is? Do you watch good movies? If so you should have an idea. Actors have good charisma yes, such as Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt. But not these ISS bozos. Are you dumber than I thought? No one who has met me considers me to be a hillbilly. You are simply trying to discredit me using dishonest tactics.

Check this out. The first Flat Earth Convention was recently held. It got some attention from the mainstream media too, who sent reporters to cover the event and interview some of its members, including Mark Sargent, one of the leaders of the flat earth movement.

Here is the report from ABC Nightline about the flat earth convention. It's only 7 minutes and the reporter lady was actually nice and didn't ridicule them and tried to act impartial.

Wow guys check this out. A group of independent scientists from Brazil performed a series of tests and experiments with high tech equipment to test the Earth's curvature. The result was that they found NO CURVATURE on the Earth! How can that be? If the Earth is not flat, then how can this be? This indicates that the ball earth model is very problematic too. So what's the solution? Can light bend around the Earth's curvature due to gravity? They concluded that the Earth is not completely flat either, but has a little convex shape. In addition, they also discovered a new hidden continent beyond the Antarctic ice wall using high altitude test balloon flights from Brazil!

Here is the documentary about their tests and experiments. They speak in Portuguese but it's dubbed in English. The group of researchers gave their websites in the video description where they said their video could be uploaded on other channels.

Description:

"The Terra Convexa Documentary may be republished in another channel as long as the monetization is deactivated and the source is informed as follows:
"Terra convexa is an independent research of Dákila Researches www.dakila.com.br and Centro Tecnológico Zigurats ctzbrasil.com.br originally published in www.terraconvexa.com.br and convexearth.org"

After seven years of research on earth format, scientific experiments carried out by Brazilian researchers at Dakila Research and the Zigurats Technological Center in partnership with professionals from various areas of Brazil and other countries, such as the United States, Russia, Chile, the Netherlands, Spain , have shown that the Earth is not spherical.
The evidence is being presented in the feature film Terra Convexa: The Documentary, available in three languages: Portuguese, English and Spanish and published on the websites terraconvexa.com.br and convexearth.org
Seven scientific experiments were carried out, including the geodesic, which consisted in measuring the distances between the bases and tops of a building in Torres (RS) and another in Natal (RN), with a distance of 3,050 km between them. reference to sea level. "The measurements were the same. If the Earth were spherical, the measure of the distance between the bases should be smaller than the measurement between the upper parts of the buildings because they would be following the curvature of the Earth, "explains Urandir de Oliveira, founder of Dakila Research. Engineers from the National Institute of Colonization and Agrarian Reform (INCRA) participated in the action.
A long-range laser was used to measure the flatness and leveling of the waters at the Três Marias Dam (MG); in Lagoa dos Patos (RS), on Lake Titicaca, Peru; and in the seas of Ilhabela (SP) and in the Strait of Gibraltar. The tests performed up to 35 km did not identify any curvature.
Experiments with refracting and reflecting telescopes have proved that boats do not disappear on the horizon, but we lost the ability to observe them due to an optical phenomenon. This phenomenon was studied by the researchers, who formulated a new physical theory, which explains physically and mathematically how this works.
Experiments with plumbing (verticalization) and level (horizontalization) have proved that gravity does not exist, because the physical behavior of water is to seek its original form, that is, flatness. According to Urandir, what holds us firm to the ground is the MDPL (magnetism, density, pressure and light).
Through images obtained through several atmospheric probes launched by the researchers, as well as of incursions made, including in Antarctica, with the collaboration of the Armed Forces of Brazil, as well as other analyzes of materials found in glaciers of Siberia and the shores of the Arctic Glacial Ocean , such as pollen, dust and other fragments, a new continent, known as the "Greater North", was discovered, separated by a large mass of ice.
The trajectory of the stars, including the Sun and the Moon, is totally different from what science says. The new information enabled the correct positioning of the continents.
The complete research information, with regard to equipments, coordinates, images, all techniques, research content, technical reports, scientific papers, mathematical calculations and proposed theories will be available soon on the websites http://www.terraconvexa.com.br and http://convexearth.org
A book with the complete compilation of the research will be released soon."
