Here is some more NASA proof that the earth is a globe.


NASA image reveals remains of an ancient lake that stretched 150,000 square miles...



NASA shared an eerie image of what was once a lake larger than the Caspian Sea in central Africa.

Called Mega Chad, this massive body of water stretched 150,000 square miles across the Sahara and would have been the largest on Earth today.

Modern Lake Chad is just a fraction of its former size and sits inside the ancient body of water's shoreline that is still etched into the desert landscape.

The image highlights the dark lower-elevations of the area, along with sand spits and beach ridges that formed along Lake Mega Chad's northeastern shores.

Experts have noted that the enormous lake took just a couple hundred years to shrink to its current 137 square miles size.

The lake, which crosses the borders of Chad, Niger, Nigeria and Cameroon, has been further reduced in size by humanity siphoning off fresh water from it.


Cool

Today someone dies trying to prove the Flat Earth theory. Mike Hughes gets into his homemade rocket and the landing doesn't goes fine.

https://twitter.com/justindchapman/status/1231336002175717376

I feel bad about Mike, he sacrifices himself and he couldn't prove the earth is flat. If he wants to see the earth curvature, there are better ways...

Rest in peace Mike  Embarrassed

Was that his parachute that was torn off during blast-off? Is that why he didn't parachute down?

You are right, we can see how the parachute fall after takeoff... I will quote the news:

OP, if you want proof the Earth is not flat, you can go to a harbor where there are lots of ships. From the ground, watch the ship sail off, and eventually you will see that it will appear to sink, and will not "fade off". You will see the bottom of the ship disappear, and eventually will see the top of the flag disappear.

After the ship has appeared to disappear, move to higher ground near where you are -- go to the top level of a building and look towards the ship. You will be able to see more of the ship than you could when you were on the ground.

I remain unconvinced of the flat earth "buoyancy" theory of gravity because of the inconsistencies and contradictions, and because of the inability of proponents to explain it. I wonder if this one would be more suitable: Le Sage's theory of gravitation

...
The Coulomb force (electromagnetism) ultimately drives any material particles in motion. "Space and time" along with relativistic "gravity" is a concept from Relativity (1905) and was falsified by D&P Sagnac (1939) at the University of Paris. What was proven, is that there is a static aether.

I figured that Le Sage's theory might appeal to you because it describes something that is similar to buoyancy. Note that the theory does not depend on the existence of planets or space or relativity or aether.

My problem with your Coulomb force explanation (as I understand it) is that it requires an aether that has mass and charge. In addition, aether must be extremely rigid in order to transmit electromagnetic waves at high frequencies, but you write that it is a "super-fine gas", which is anything but rigid.

Let's say the Earth is flat, then why I cannot see the Burj Dubai, Everest, from Europa?
I have some quite good lenses and I can clearly see some crates on the Moon, so why not here on Earth?

The problem is that looking at the moon requires only a small amount of atmosphere to look through. Looking at something on the earth requires looking through several to many times worth of atmosphere.

As you go up, the atmosphere becomes less and less. At 20 miles high, there is not enough atmosphere to make a difference in upward vision. There is enough, however, to cause a flying vehicle to be affected by it if the vehicle is flying at high speeds.

Atmosphere causes distant objects on earth to not be seen correctly. Even though the atmosphere doesn't always produce a mirage, it still distorts images enough that you can only see a limited number of miles on the surface of the earth.

In other words, the atmosphere idea regarding flat Earth or globe Earth is irrelevant. Atmosphere blocks or would block vision on either FE or GE.

Bozo got famous for wanting to prove "once and for all" the earth was flat.

Wasn't it already proven once and for all when billions can see the curvature of the earth?  Yeah, let's listen to a nutjob and replace all the textbooks with his delusions.

The planet as a whole just got a bit smarter.

The aether, in addition to behaving as super-fine gas is under maximum compression and is incompressible thus, has the ridged properties of a liquid crystal.

These so-called modern scientists all claim they seek the holy grail of unified field theory, they do not! They seek to bury what was experimentally proven in 1939 at the university of Paris and scream "LALALALALALAL I can't hear you over the sound of muh relativity".

A gas is compressible by definition. There is no such thing an incompressible gas.

If it is rigid, then it must have a high viscosity. If it has mass, then it must have inertia. If it has a charge, then we should be able to manipulate it. I don't think any of these properties have ever been demonstrated.

Don’t hold your breath dude. He’ll just come up with some silly convoluted word salad involving refraction, mirages
vanishing points, or maybe mention fake NASA photo conspiracies, the Jews, hot ovens and roping yourself or some
such ridiculous thing. Then top it off with an obscure “wtf?” meme.
I’m sure it’s actually been discussed repeatedly in this rather long, farcical trolling thread,iirc. Not worth searching for it though.

We're coming around to April Fool's Day 01 April again. It's 5th anniversary time for the thread!!!

Are we doing anything special? I think someone should bake a cake, and then take it out of the oven before it's fully cooked, so that it goes flat.
Any other (better) ideas?
