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.

2019-04-15 10:06:13 UTC  

I started at a neutral standpoint; I don't know whether the earth was flat or spherical

2019-04-15 10:07:19 UTC  

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

2019-04-15 10:07:53 UTC  

the earth is round

2019-04-15 10:08:11 UTC  

A flat earth can also be round, yes

2019-04-15 10:08:26 UTC  

no that’s not how that works

2019-04-15 10:08:59 UTC  

@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

2019-04-15 10:09:01 UTC  

8 inch per square mile is an approximation via Taylor-Series. It works up to a certain degree until the uncertainty becomes too high

2019-04-15 10:09:27 UTC  

However, as it's an approximation, you would still expect results close to the approximation, you don't. At all.

2019-04-15 10:09:45 UTC  

No, they didn't.

2019-04-15 10:10:17 UTC  

bro are you an Ancient Greek? 🤧 didn’t think so

2019-04-15 10:10:40 UTC  

bro they’re dead for a reason

2019-04-15 10:10:41 UTC  

Except that all our laser experiments show no curvature whatsoever. People like D.Marble made multiple such experiments that show no curvature

2019-04-15 10:11:05 UTC  

@road to diabetes Do you see the problem with that?

2019-04-15 10:11:14 UTC  

"The moon might be round, therefore the earth is also round"

2019-04-15 10:11:18 UTC  

That's a non-sequitur

2019-04-15 10:11:34 UTC  

bro stand up and tell me if you fall forward

2019-04-15 10:11:48 UTC  

Light doesn't bend at long distances.

2019-04-15 10:12:04 UTC  

Light only diffracts due to refraction

2019-04-15 10:12:37 UTC  

Light only bends around non-zero gravitational gradient fields

2019-04-15 10:14:19 UTC  

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

Been nice trollin'

2019-04-15 10:15:24 UTC  

The Earth's round lmao

2019-04-15 10:15:31 UTC  

I've been trollin'

2019-04-15 10:15:31 UTC  

Wherever there is mass, there is an affect we attribute to gravity

2019-04-15 10:15:39 UTC  


2019-04-15 10:15:43 UTC  


2019-04-15 10:15:50 UTC  

The existence of gravity, however, does not imply the shape of the earth

2019-04-15 10:16:10 UTC  

Alright, @Bannebie has been warned for '**Bad word usage**'.

2019-04-15 10:16:37 UTC  

It's just that 99% of flat earthers are hompsky chonks when it comes to physics

2019-04-15 10:16:53 UTC  

The question has already been answered; perspective

2019-04-15 10:17:01 UTC  

Your eyes can only see so much

2019-04-15 10:17:24 UTC  

Your eyes can basically see infinitely

2019-04-15 10:17:38 UTC  

I'm literally answering your question, it's simply that you don't like the answer

2019-04-15 10:17:39 UTC  

Stars are light years, if not hundreds of light years

2019-04-15 10:17:43 UTC  

It's quite far
