Flat Earth Theory / Re: About the sun and the flat earth model

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polar_night

At the antarctic circle, the sun will be exactly at the horizon at noon on winter solstice at midnight, it will look like a brief partial sunrise then goes back down. Closer to the pole, more days on either side of solstice the sun will not come up. Move towards the equator, and around the solstice, days will start in mid-morning and end mid-afternoon. Check the sunrise/sunset times for places at various latitudes, try south pole, McMurdo, Punta Arenas, and Singapore.

At the equator, days are quite uniform. The farther south or north you go, the more the change in day length by season. Close enough to the poles, and at solstice, the days (summer) and nights (winter) are 24 hours.

Endless documentation by personal report, scientists, explorers, tourists, military, airliners go over the north pole, etc, streaming video, textbook diagrams. All matches - observation, theory and RE geometry.

On FE, requires conspiracy and/or new or different laws of physics.

Gotta call this one for RE.

Flat Earth Theory / amateur radio satellite deduction
« on: March 10, 2019, 07:17:41 PM »
There are amateur radio satellites:

Their location is given many places:

A group of hams builds satellites and is getting the next one launched by SpaceX:

Hams make their own computer controlled antennas, very directional, point them where the satellite is published as being, and talk to someone far away who is also pointing his highly directional antenna at the satellite. There are pages and pages of web sites and youtube videos of hams showing how to build a satellite radio and showing them talking to satellites. All this only works geometrically if there are transponders at 250 mi altitude traveling the orbital path. This all makes perfect sense on RE.

How does this work on FE?

Flat Earth Theory / FE and relativity
« on: July 16, 2018, 06:52:01 PM »
FEs say we can accelerate towards the speed of light (to make gravity) forever because special theory of relativity and never quite get there. So Einstein is right and valid? Einstein also said, and presented math, checked by millions, that predicted that when you approach the speed of light, your mass becomes infinite. So we must be close to the speed of light by now, within a fraction of a percent. Either we should be extremely massive, Einstain was wrong, or the RE is correct. Am I wrong on this?

Flat Earth Theory / the sun at night
« on: July 16, 2018, 01:50:40 AM »
On FE at night, the sun is still up there but we can't see it. At night, I can see stars all over the sky, so wherever the sun is, I can see the stars right through it. They are dim and the sun is bright. How can this be?

Flat Earth Theory / sextant, north star, and equator
« on: July 16, 2018, 12:44:00 AM »
If you point a sextant at the north star above the equator, the angle it reads out is equal to your latitude. At the equator, the angle would be 0, equal to latitude. appearing on the horizon. On flat earth, you would be looking parallel to the surface and seeing the north star on the ground at the north pole. If the north star is 3100 miles up and the distance from equator to north pole is 6250 miles, then we have a right triangle with sides of 3100 and 6250. A triangle calculator shows the angle as 25 degrees above the horizon.

How can this be?
