Flat Earth Debate / Re: sun rising below the clouds

Where do you derive 2645.75 miles?

I do not know if the Sun is at a consistent 3000 mile altitude.

I am beginning to think it varies during the seasons.
"A person on a flat earth [would] be in daylight when the sun is 4000 miles or closer"
I could not tell if this meant the strait line from the sun angled up to meet it or the distance on the ground from directly below the sun
the 2645.75 is taking 4000 if it was the hypotenuse of the traingle and 3000 miles up as one of the sides
it would make it (A² + 9mil) = 16mil  so A² = 7mil and the square root of 7 million is about 2645.75

and I added that if sides A and B are the 4000 and 3000 that that makes it easy at 5000 miles direct eye to sun at sunset.

with the variable sun height and constant distance from sun to be int he dark the radius of the spotlight  circle would vary, too.

I think it would have to be teh hypotenuse of the triangle that would have to be the constant though as that is the straight line between observer and sun, right? (rather than the distance seen between the two points when seen from above?)

"A person on a flat earth with be in daylight when the sun is 4000 miles or closer. Farther away, it will be darkness."
if the sun is 3000 miles up then it is about 2645.75 miles from the spot on earth underneath the sun?
that is a really high angle, isn't it(48.59 degrees?)...for the sun appearing on the horizon under the clouds?

or if you mean 4000 miles from the spot directly under the sun(as apposed to direct to the sun) then
that would make your direct line of sight with the sun at 5000 miles distant at a 36.87 degree angle...?
and that is at sunset/rise...(with the 3000/4000/5000 right triangle?)

No matter what teh thinkness might be, I wonder what would be under teh Earth?


it would have to be deeper than the deepest someone has dug, right.
so at least 7.5 miles

is there any reason in the flat earth model that it would necessarily be finite?
at least deep enough for the crust plates to dance with each other.

yeah. no models for flat Earth (that i have seen) hold water to scrutiny...

I would think you need to focus on integrating a workable model before you dismiss the working model that we have in the globe.

the bipolar model has a point on the equator circling the flat Earth (the equatorial point at 180 longitude)
the unipolar model has what would be the point of the south pole circling the Flat Earth

neither works because they create the need for the sun to circle the perimeter whilst not giving light in the middle at certain times of year..

I was wondering similar why for instance that Sydney gets 14 hours daylight in December and the Arctic circle gets none
(because the spotlight would need to be roughly grin shaped to cover taht area on the UN flag map.)

the sky is starting to dim and the says it should set in 1 minutes.
I am in Salem Oregon. at 20:04 my time

I was not looking right at the sunset to tell exactly my bedroom window faces  north.

hmm... the problem I first see with the bi-polar model is that it puts the intersection of the international dateline and the equator as a circle all the way around the world...
(much like how the one pole model represents the south pole point as all the way around the world.)

I live in Northwestern USA, by the way

where on the model is the sun when the sun is at the point where 180 degree longitude meets the equator...(I mean when it is noon on an equinox at that point)
Does the sun become a ring around the world somehow
I am confused how that is at all possible.
