The ancient Greeks endevored to measure the curvature of the Earth in 240 B.C..  Of course, this only incdentally proves the Earth was sphere or spheroid.  There wasn't even a question back then whether the Earth was flat or not.  How long has mankind known this to be true is unclear to me.  It seems it could be far before that like before writing itself.  I no longer think everyone who says they are Flat Earthers are trolling the rest of us.  Some of them are sincere.

Look  if  reality is the matrix or a twist on the matrix  they could be correct.  Pretty much the only way they can being correct is the existence of a  far superior science that chooses to deceive us for the purpose of their research.

Some like the op may call these God and angels.  Myself I say who cares.  The essential truth for me is I don't know  what is true so I make a guess that  the following is true:
 
1) the earth is round
2) we rotate around the sun
3) there really are lots of planets and stars


if it is all lies by smarter aliens

or all bs by god and his or her angels to test me

both can fuck off.  I maintain neither group has the right to test us this way.

But you don't have to go that far. You can see by the post above yours that I am quoting here, that the OP is constantly playing games with the minds of people if he can get away with it. He doesn't have any proof for flat earth, and he doesn't know how to refute the proof for globe Earth.

So relax. If you let other people play with your mind like he is trying to, it is really you testing yourself. Continue to have faith that God is upholding everything just the way that you have always known. But when real proof comes across, that shows that you have made a mistake in your thinking, don't be too unyielding to change. Just make sure that it is real proof.

Cool

Were you really thinking (when you started this topic) that you should call yourself notflatman?

Or were you originally going to call the topic "Fat Earth," and the "l" somehow got in there, and you didn't catch your mistake until the topic was a couple hundred pages long, so you thought it would be bad form to correct the topic title that late in the game?

Cool

Perfect mirror image:



The earth is flat.

Your picture is the crux of the whole matter. You say the earth is flat. And you back it up with a picture that shows some of the earth being flat. But the person in the picture isn't flat. And the mountains in the background aren't flat. And if you got down close to what looks like flat ice or water, you would find that it isn't flat either. So, where is the flat? Your picture is absolutely useless for showing flat earth, unless you describe how the picture shows flat earth.

In an Olympic size swimming pool, when the water is absolutely still, it looks flat. Not including adhesion or cohesion, or the height of the molecules of water, the water actually curves with the curvature of globe earth. The reason you can't see it is because the amount of curvature is so small that it can't be observed. However, in a swimming pool the size of the ocean, it is readily observable.

Since you are unwilling to recognize these simple truths, but you want to show pictures like the above, and then let people try to reason their way around what you mean... would you be a religious leader like Jim Jones (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Jones) if your FE went far enough among people?

^^^ I say:

"Perfect mirror image..."

The mirror does not curve if it's forming a perfect reflection thus, the earth is flat.

At over 4,000 square miles that's some swimming pool.

The surface of the ocean does not curve into a sphere, everybody who has taken their Nikon P900 to the beach knows the earth is flat. The opposite of what you say is demonstrably true; a flat and level surface is "readily observable" across the sea.

Stop shitting here please, Buy a telecope, get some vacation to the beach,
if the earth is flat, you'll be able to see the other continent and evrything there

You're a pretty shitty child if you think you can see extreme distances through the atmosphere, you can barely even see mountain ranges in the distance through the blue haze. I haven't even touched on refraction and the angular resolution limit of the zoom lens and I've already dubunked your shit-for-brains claim.

It's you that needs to stop dropping deuces here, get a Nikon P900 and go to the beach! Simply watching a boat disappear past the horizon with the naked eye then pulling it back into full view with a P900 debunks the globe.

^^^ You've also got shit-for-brains if you think I'm being paid by Nikon to hock their old camera. I mention the P900 because it has 83x optical zoom and is inexpensive enough for almost anybody to afford especially if it's used.

Look. The answer to this is simple.

Fly a passenger-carrying, hot air balloon to a height of a couple hundred feet. Fly it as far away as you can so that you can still barely see it through the natural, atmosphere haze... if it hasn't dropped out of sight over the horizon, that is. The people in the balloon see you just like you see them.

You have radio contact. The people in the balloon use a transit to measure the angle between you and a distant, visible object that is on the exact opposite side of the balloon as you are, and exactly as far away as you are from the balloon.

If the transit angle is only the size that an angle would be on flat land regarding the height of the balloon, then the earth is flat or flat-ish. If it is greater, the curvature of the earth can be determined from what the angle is, minus the balloon height angle. This whole project can be done much easier from the top of a small mountain rather than a balloon.

If anyone wants to prove flat earth or globe earth, let him do this project, or find where people have done it. Actually, this or similar has been done long ago - https://flatearthinsanity.blogspot.com/2016/09/how-al-biruni-calculated-circumference.html.

Find additional similar doings.

Guys, the concept of flat Earth is necessary for some power structures to control people. We are specially introduced the idea that the Earth is flat so that our thinking becomes limited (not comprehensive). When a person is told that there is no way out, that there is only some kind of flat surface where we can’t do anything, then any of us (even on a subconscious level) has some apathy, etc. If we consider that the Earth is round, then there are no boundaries in our consciousness, because infinity comes from the round Earth to all 360 degrees. Therefore, even if the Earth really were flat (although this is not so, and it has been proved many times, if you study the topic well), people need hope in any case, so the Round earth can be great for this. This concept gives us an image of the fact that we can study and cognize this world and the universe in absolutely any direction, and not in 2D, as in the concept of a flat Earth.
P.S.
I don't want to offend anyone. It's my opinion.
And I sincerely want to understand this topic as well as each of us. I wish to everyone good luck in the search, I hope someday we will comprehend the truth!

^^^ That post gave me cancer.

@BADecker, that link you posted is nonsense and lies. It completely disregards the optical compression that occurs at the angular resolution limit of the eye or camera then starts claiming it's the earth that's curving. The article then goes on to fake a horizon drop with a smartphone theodolite app zeroed off-centre.

The icing on this cake of shit is the illustration they provide:

All that you are saying is that sighting with transit, and then calculating the measurements, doesn't work. If in your mind it doesn't work, why are you so intent on the idea that the earth is flat. Since sight and sight measurement doesn't work, are you smelling that the earth is flat?

You rely on Youtube videos that you say show the earth is flat. Yet you want to disregard cellphone stuff that's in an article that I mentioned. Yet the cellphone stuff isn't really the important part of the measuring in the article.

The thing that you are really doing is to negate anything that you say by negating the things that I say? How are you doing this? We are both using similar measurement methods. If you negate my using of them, you negate your using of them.

Mine work. Yours don't. In addition, your picture doesn't illustrate what I said.

Cool

Can you imagine 800 pages of something as silly as flat earth? You have it all wrong, clearly the world is on the back of a turtle moving thru space. Just be thankful its not a Thoroid, Homer would be pleased...
