How do Flat Earth believers explain plate tectonics?
If the Earth was really flat, then it would have no core, right? It's flat, just like a paper. So how do Flat Earth believers explain plate tectonics? You know, those big landmasses that are moving on the mantle and create volcanoes and mountains and also fault lines. And also, it has been proven that for example the Atlantic Ocean gets wider a few cm every year. If the Earth was flat, where would all the continents eventually end up to? In the Flat Earth Theory, would all the land masses not be crammed against the side, with a vast ocean in the middle?

They don't explain anything, hence "believers", and no, there is no "Flat Earth Theory."

They PROFESS A flat earth SO THEY DO NOT have to explain SUCH ""Sciencey" stuff. Along with orbits, astronomy, etc. its a "Lazy Philosophy".

Flat earthers are an exercise in explaining things away without scientific observation while accusing people who have done the scientific observation of having no evidence to show them.

Oh that's easy to explain. The plates ride on the backs of huge tortoises, one plate per tortoise. So when the animals bump into to each other that causes the plates to crash and heave...earthquakes. And flat doesn't mean thin; the plates are flat and thick.
I trust you understand that I'm kidding.
They're not tortoises at all...they're huge snails and the plates are their shell backs.
