About the Fact That Length of Day Changes
« on: June 14, 2015, 01:57:19 AM »
We all know days are longer during winter and shorter during summer. Ive seen people on both sides of the argument use the fact that the length of day changes as evidence for their argument. Im pretty new to this whole idea of a flat earth, but to me the fact that length of day changes seems more like evidence that earth is flat rather than round. If it were round wouldnt there be 12 hour days and 12 hour nights everyday? I would love to hear other opinions on this, from both sides of the argument. Thanks.

Round Earth's axis is tilted.  When the north side is tilted toward the sun (summer in the north), the northern hemisphere's days receive more sunlight than the southern hemisphere's days.  When it's summertime in the southern hemisphere, it's the opposite.

Abandon hope all ye who press enter here.

Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

If you can't demonstrate it, then you shouldn't believe it.

It completely fails to explain the 24 hour summer day in the antarctic.

Have you ever seen a 24 hour summer day in the Antarctic?

This is satisfactorily explained by the existence of aetheric distortion, which is a necessary side-effect of aether-propelled Universal Acceleration
That's how far the horizon is, not how far you can see.
