What do you answer to Atmospheric refraction ?
« on: March 14, 2019, 09:58:30 AM »
Hello,

I am new to flat earth and I find it fascinating. Although, with youtube & google censorship, its getting difficult to get accurate results. I have a couple of questions:

1) Globers say that If we can see objects that should be behind the curve, its because of atmospheric refraction. What do you have to say about that ?

2) How do you explain coriolis effect and foucault's pendulum ?

Thank you.

1. According to various time lapse photography ventures, it appears more likely that refraction is causing the sinking ship effect: https://wiki.tfes.org/Sinking_Ship_Effect_Caused_By_Refraction

2. See:
