##### Flat Earth Theory / Re: Flat Earth Math, and what you should see, shall the Earth be round
« on: May 29, 2018, 08:27:14 PM »
Dr Rowbotham proved that the earth is a flat plane with the Bedford level experiment. He also explained why ships hulls disappear before the mast.
Agreed.
It's funny actually, round d earth heretics say that the ship's hull disappearing 'proves' that earth is flat, but look through binoculars, like you've said and... there is the hull. If earth was round and you looked through binoculars, you wouldn't be able to see the hull.
Nah.
It's called a vanishing point. Obviously you are unaware that the further something gets, the smaller it is.

More recently we have proved the earth is round.
Who has? Corrupt governments hiding the truth? NASA keeping stock of its massive yearly budget? There is no proof, its flat. The maths don't add up to a round world.

And by actual Doctors, no less!
You keep saying that, Dr Rowbothams work was revolutionary, proved by the fact people like you are debating it now rather than ignoring what you are claiming to be a load of rubbish.

Yes, It gets smaller, but how do you explain why it sinks into the horizon.

##### Flat Earth Theory / Re: Erathostenes and the North Star

Yep. Trying to figure the altitude of the north star is one of the best ways to show the impossibility of the flat Earth.

That's why not a single one of them will attempt it.

My personal favorite is this:

Half a penny of every federal tax dollar actually ends up at NASA. SpaceX is completely private. Not many other space companies other than Boeing, SpaceX and, Blue Origin (Which all are private and only run off of stockholders).

##### Flat Earth Theory / Re: ADS-B using satellites
« on: May 29, 2018, 08:11:42 PM »
I've used ADS-B before with an SDR dongle. Very cool to see the planes around you on the screen a couple minutes before seeing them fly overhead. As for the satellite thing, no way could they track planes without some kind of eye-in-the-sky tech.

I don't think you're going to notice a difference of 5' 7" at a 2.9 miles

##### Flat Earth Theory / Re: Question regarding the spotlight sun theory

Ok then, let me ask another question, if I went to an area of earth where the Moon was "Setting" and simultaneously had a friend in an area where the Moon was "Rising", how come we both see the same side of the Moon when according to the FE model the Moon is only a few miles up and very small.

The moon is actually fairly uniform in appearance, so you are probably just mistakenly thinking you are viewing the same spot.

You know, we have mapped to the Moon with surprising detail and it would be very easy to spot a difference even if the Moon has a uniform surface on both sides.

What's there to explain? The farther away light is according to the inverse square law, the dimmer it becomes. In addition, as you have said, perspective would decrease the size of the Sun and bring it down to a lower perceived altitude. Not to mention that objects in the foreground (mountains, forests, buildings, clouds, fog) would further obscure the Sun, and different atmospheric condition would bend and manipulate sunlight.

Interesting. So why does the sun not slowly fade in and out during the day? It is admittedly dimmer at sunset as the light travels through more atmosphere and more scatters, hence the different colours, but for most of the day doesn't get dimmer or change size as it (in your model) comes closer to us or moves away.
If the sun is a "ball of fire" then what causes it to be focused so it doesn't shine over the whole plane. This animation has a bit of tailing off but there is no explanation as to why it wouldn't be visible at all across the plane:

While we're here, how does it illuminate the moon? If it doesn't shine across the whole earth how can it shine sideways on the moon? Or are you going with the moon giving off its own (cold) light model?

I have a telescope, and I'm going to the beach this summerr so I should be able to test this whole fading theory. I'll post on the debate board when I do so

##### Flat Earth Theory / Question regarding the spotlight sun theory
« on: January 07, 2018, 04:34:06 AM »
Ok, keep in mind that I'm new here and this is my first post. I didn't make this account because I wanted "troll", I only want formal answers and proof to back them. I will not try and start a fight nor will I result to insulting you, I expect the same on your side of the matter also.

My question is about the spotlight sun or the FE sun model in general, and how it isn't visible during the night. I have seen the explanation of this in some other posts saying that it all boils down to perspective and angles, but I would love to hear more explanation of to how this works. All answers are welcome just keep in mind of the things I said at the beginning of the post, I truly am curious about this topic.
