what do you say to a stupid moron who believes the earth is not round ?
notice hes not saying the earth is flat.
he is however sold on one thing, and thats the idea that what they're telling us, showing us about the earth being a globe is all fabricated lies.
secondly, he believes there is a certain altitude we simply cannot get past because we do not possess the technology to do this.
what we call space is in fact still earths atmosphere he says.

Show him the pebbles in a pond. See how they are round and smooth? A flat cracker shape simply is not a probable shape for a planet that is travelling through space, with electromagnetic energy flowing around it from the sun.
Tell him that if satellites did not constantly correct for the differences in time due to relativity, that GPS would not work quite right.
Explain that we have seasons because the Earth tilts on its axis.
Explain that if you were to get in a ship, you could sail around the globe, and return to the same place you started.
Is he afraid to use computers, too? They are a result of science and technology; things that he does not trust or understand.
The Earth is very close to spherical. He may just be pointing out the slight elongation caused by the planet's spinning. Maps using a sphere are very accurate.
Likewise there is no clearly defined end to the atmosphere - it just gets thinner and thinner until it's gone. It's definitely gone by the height of most satellites, but a minority opinion considers the scattered ions around the Space Station to still be atmosphere.

The earth is not round. It is almost round, but it is fatter near the equator.
Tell him there is great night life on Pluto

I would ask them to explain why there are no discrepancies in long distance train timetables in different parts of the world and why traffic cameras accessible via the internet show two circles of daylight and darkness which meet along their edges.

I've learned it's best to not argue with morons, just bless their little hearts.
