I always know when FEers feel that they're losing the debate: When personal attacks is all the content of a response. Thanks Vaux!

To be fair, the experimental evidence presented in the wiki is a joke.  "Is Kansas flatter than a pancake"?  Really?  The closest it comes to presenting a decent experiment is the BLE, which, when it was done properly, showed the Earth was round.  There is some controversy in this community about that result, but none of that is actually pertaining to the set up and execution of the experiment, which we know, as a matter of record, was attested by Hampden's chosen referee as showing the Earth round.  So I am not sure what experimental evidence Tausami could rely on so heavily as to discount the plethora of evidences for the Earth being round.
Sorry, but I just have to commend RS here. I've always loved the Kansas article for FES's stupidity for including it as evidence of FET. The study uses the USGS markers that calculate the distance of the point (on the surface) to the center of the Earth, which of course relies on the round shape of the Earth. Of course, even if an entire state were flat in the FET sense, it would hardly be evidence about the shape of the entire Earth. (Since an elephant's foot's bottom is flat, the elephant must be flat.) Good job, RS.
Don't rely on FEers for history or physics.

Experimental evidence has proven that the Earth is flat. This much we can be sure of. Everything else is merely speculation.
Just out of curiosity, how much of this experimental evidence (water convexity experiments, stc.) that you're so sure of relies on physical properties that you're not so sure of (bendy light, aether, etc.)?

Are you suggesting that the FE interpretation of Bedford relies on EA? Because from what I understand it's the RET explanation for Bedford that relies on magical bendy light.
That's how far the horizon is, not how far you can see.

So is gravity.  Are you a wizard or something?

Magical things, like refraction and gravity.  Maybe we would also talk about other magical things, like dark matter and dark energy?  Maybe even the big bang?

Even though I think it is demented, I get why FEers occasionally deride gravity as "magical" but what is your issue with refraction?

¿Do you only understand question marks if there is also an inverted one at the start of the sentence?

And actually, it was Tausami who mentioned magical refraction. Keep up please. No more bourbon for 3 hours.

No, I'm suggesting that EA conflicts with the FE interpretation of Bedford.

Then you understand wrong.  Refraction is a likely explanation for the BLE, but refraction is far from magical and not at all the same as bendy light (EA).  Among other things, EA bends light the opposite way that refraction does.
