Zoom in on Saturn and it looks like what nasa claims.

It's funny you should mention Saturn.  My Dad brought home a fairly powerful telescope from work years ago.  My brother and I set it up in the back garden.  We set the magnification to something fairly high (I think it was 40 times).  Purely by chance we pointed the thing directly at Saturn and it looked exactly like the image below.

Well its obvious by your tone, that you don't seriously want the answer, but I will answer for those genuinely curious. The sun expands and contracts its orbit for the seasons. Starting say in the north for the summer solstice, where its orbit is the smallest, it gets faster and faster getting wider and wider, until it gets to the summer solstice where it "turns back" and starts getting slower and slower, until it gets back to the original point.

You are so full of bullshit.  If the sun's orbit were farther away in winter from a flat earth, the entire earth would be colder.  Yet the southern hemisphere is warmer when it is winter in the northern hemisphere.

You're misunderstanding the theory. It is not that it is farther away as a whole, but that the circle with which it orbits expands. North pole in centre, Antarctic around the edges. Did you see the map in the video?

Are you saying Flat Earth is only a theory?  ;)

About the sun and moon it is a theory.

About the earth, no.

If you say so.

Here's a subreddit full of people who like astronomy:

Here's a search for people taking amateur photos of Saturn:

Positions on science today can be analogous to the positions of Catholics today. (Not that Catholics of each position hold to each correlating scientific position necessarily.)

Here we go with each spectrum:

Flat earther                     -    Sedevacantist, Resistance, Feeneyite

Geocentrist                     -    SSPX

Creationist/Acentrist        -    FSSP, ICKSP, Ecclesia Dei, etc.

Theistic Evolutionist         -    Novus Ordo

Atheistic evolutionist        -    Heretic, schismatic, apostate, pagan
