How are you elle
Again, who do you believe? The scientists that are being paid to lie to you, or your own senses?
No, I'm just choosing not to answer a ridiculous question.
No, It's cause I'm staying silent.
That's all there is to it.
@OTK (Pepega) We already demonstrated what kind of curvature we would expect to see. 8 inches per square mile. We don't see that, however
i'm okay how are you?(:
That's using presupposition that the earth is round
i didn't do anything ?
We need to start from a neutral standpoint and come to conclusions based on observable evidence
No, it doesn't
You know what would also look flat when you zoom away? A flat earth
Yes, so do flat objects
The Sun never sets or rises, it stays the same distance over the Earth throughout it’s daily/annual journeys around. The appearance of rising and setting is all based on the law of perspective on plane surfaces. The Sun and Moon spotlights are perpetually hovering over and parallel to the surface of the Earth.
From our vantage point, due to the Law of Perspective, the day/night luminaries appear to rise up the Eastern horizon, curve peaking high overhead, and then sink below the Western horizon. They do not escape to the underside of the Flat-Earth as one might imagine, but rather rotate concentric clockwise circles around the circumference from tropic to tropic.
No, I'm not.
I started at a neutral standpoint; I don't know whether the earth was flat or spherical
However, as we can observe the earth being flat directly AND we cannot observe any curvature whatsoever DESPITE knowing what curvature we would expect IF the earth was spherical, the only conclusion we can draw is that the earth is in fact flat, and not spherical
the earth is round
A flat earth can also be round, yes
no that’s not how that works
@road to diabetes thats not my opinion so call it as you wish, i dont support nor deny it, its just a point of view of another person
8 inch per square mile is an approximation via Taylor-Series. It works up to a certain degree until the uncertainty becomes too high
However, as it's an approximation, you would still expect results close to the approximation, you don't. At all.
No, they didn't.
bro are you an Ancient Greek? 🤧 didn’t think so
bro they’re dead for a reason
Except that all our laser experiments show no curvature whatsoever. People like D.Marble made multiple such experiments that show no curvature
"The moon might be round, therefore the earth is also round"
That's a non-sequitur
bro stand up and tell me if you fall forward
Light doesn't bend at long distances.
Light only diffracts due to refraction
Light only bends around non-zero gravitational gradient fields
Gravitational fields affect anything with a non-zero mass-momentum-stress tensor. Photons have no mass energy, but they have momentum energy and are thus affected by gravity
