Watch a ship sail off to sea


Without being in the sky, it is impossible to see the curvature of the Earth. However, you can always see a demonstration of this if you visit a harbor or any place with a wide-open view of the water.

If you are able to watch a ship sail off to sea, watch its mast and flag as it fades off into the distance. You will notice that, in fact, it does not "fade off into the distance" at all; instead, you will see its mast and flag appear to slowly sink. The ship sailed beyond the point at which you would see it. Just to be sure, bring a pair of binoculars with you so that you can see even farther off into the distance.

It's as if you're watching it go over to the other side of a hill. This phenomenon can only be explained by a sphere-shaped planet.

Interesting article that might explain some root causes for how and why people, at least in the USA, can get so antagonistic to evidence based reasoning...
https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/09/how-america-lost-its-mind/534231/

It's depressing how gullible the average Joe (and our Joe) is!

Quote
By my reckoning, the solidly reality-based are a minority, maybe a third of us but almost certainly fewer than half.

Only a third of us, for instance, don’t believe that the tale of creation in Genesis is the word of God.

Only a third strongly disbelieve in telepathy and ghosts.

Two-thirds of Americans believe that “angels and demons are active in the world.”

More than half say they’re absolutely certain heaven exists, and just as many are sure of the existence of a personal God—not a vague force or universal spirit or higher power, but some guy.

A third of us believe not only that global warming is no big deal but that it’s a hoax perpetrated by scientists, the government, and journalists.

A third believe that our earliest ancestors were humans just like us; that the government has, in league with the pharmaceutical industry, hidden evidence of natural cancer cures; that extraterrestrials have visited or are visiting Earth.

Almost a quarter believe that vaccines cause autism, and that Donald Trump won the popular vote in 2016.

A quarter believe that our previous president maybe or definitely was (or is?) the anti-Christ.

15 percent believe that the “media or the government adds secret mind-controlling technology to television broadcast signals,” and another 15 percent think that’s possible. A quarter of Americans believe in witches.

Remarkably, the same fraction, or maybe less, believes that the Bible consists mainly of legends and fables—the same proportion that believes U.S. officials were complicit in the 9/11 attacks.

I never made the claim the earth is flat.  You're just making that shit up.  I'm questioning the official story.  

"Not to mention the fact that the earth is fucking round."

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1009045.msg48625779#msg48625779

You're the one making claims.  Back up your claim, gimp, or sit your sorry ass down.

Show me observable, measurable, repeatable proof of curvature gimp.

I don't have to because the prevailing theory is that the earth is round (I'm pretty sure its not even a theory). Its on you to come up with an alternate theory, not just scream at people who attempt to help you understand why the earth is round. You just don't understand how the scientific method works. That's on you, not me.

Didn't think so gimp.  Sit back down.  Funny as all hell you can't even show us your proof and measurements but yet you talk like you're an expert.  You could have at least attempted some sophistry to confuse the situation like Astargath or at the bare minimum troll like Vod.  You just tucked your tail in and ran like the bitch you are.  

Imagine being this angry about the idea that the earth is round...

Unfortunately for you, the rabies has consumed the human parts of your brain. You're far beyond stripped of your intellectual capacity to perform an experiment showcasing that the world isn't round. Not much left to do or say at this point. Foam away.

Here is gimpy acting like the little bitch he is throwing an absolute fit someone would dare question him. 

"hey, quick question: what the fuck??

Hey not batman. Do an experiment that lends evidence to your hypothesis or shut the fuck up already. I already cursed myself the moment I first commented in this dumpster fire of a thread. If you can't perform an experiment that lends credence to your theory then for the sake of all that is decent, lock this fucking thread."

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1009045.msg48647616#msg48647616

Don't cry little guy. 

How about you show us your proof and measurements of the globe you dip shit.  Let me guess.  You don't want to.  HAHA  Running your mouth on second hand knowledge.

If you do some study on this, the flat earth is a planned conspiracy to keep people distracted and arguing about nonsense. The info is on bitchute and not youtube as they censors jewish conspiracies.

Look at a flat earther.. who are they  ?  Low IQ basement dwelling idiots or older folks of deep religious belief and bad reading skills from reading the bible.

You ask the religious kook his argument for the flat earth, he responds with the hand of god excuse and scriptures, verses, passages etc.. basically nonsense, proof from 5,000 years ago.

You ask the best basement dweller living in his mom house and they respond with an emotional change of the subject.

Case Closed. the earth is unfortunately round like all other planets.

If you can't perform an experiment that lends credence to your theory then for the sake of all that is decent, lock this fucking thread.

If you're not going to do an experiment with your sextant that can be replicated by others and uses the well-established laws of physics and geometry, you should just shove it up your ass, where you pulled this whole notion from in the first place. You're saying the sun is 32 miles away? Hell son, it should be easy to rent some sort of transportation to get there and prove it. So just do it already. Don't say peep until you come back.

The dipshit gimp is back!

How about an experiment that we can observe, measure, and repeat that proves we are on a ball.  Will your answer be the same as last time where you copped out like the gimp you are?



Well aside from livestreams of earth from space and the millions of pictures, also observing stars at night or eclipses. Yes there are some other experiments you can perform yourself. Eratosthenes did one with 2 holes and their shadows but retards don't accept it because it assumes the sun is far away, however 3 holes far away apart will prove the earth is not flat very easily by measuring the angles of the shadows. You can google more experiments.

Trust video's as scientific proof - logic fail - do you believe all the movies you watch?
"livestreams of earth from space"

Trust pictures as scientific proof - logic fail - are pictures of unicorns real?
"millions of pictures"

Looking at the ceiling to determine the floor - logic fail - selenelion eclipse
"observing stars at night or eclipses"

Neil Tyson Degrass debunks your 3 holes theroy - See youtube interview with Tyson

How did you measure the suns distance?  Can you please provide us with your experiment and measuring device. 

Remember you have been calling for mathematical proof (even though math proves nothing) so throw a little substance in next time.

''Trust video's as scientific proof - logic fail - do you believe all the movies you watch?'' Do you believe Trump exists even if you have never seen him in person?

''Neil Tyson Degrass debunks your 3 holes theroy - See youtube interview with Tyson'' You mean this one, where he explains it?? https://youtu.be/hLPPE3_DVCw?t=248

Don't forget about this joe, you shill liar.

Joe, read the quote again.

He isn't talking about light poles.   He is talking about a ship sailing out to sea.

It disappears with the curvature of the earth.  It's observable and repeatable and can only be explained by a sphere-shaped planet.  Smiley

Post above clearly proves why vod is no.1 on the globo-knucklehead's list.

Might admit that another globo-knucklehead named nutildah is slowly rising up, probably soon to replace astargath on 3rd position.

1. vo(i)d       - believes that he is a monkeyman living on a spinning ball. Also believes that he will cease to exist when he dies.

''Also believes that he will cease to exist when he dies.'' Outrageous notion, who would ever think that, it's not like everything we know so far indicates that.

Can you provide repeatable proof of spells?

May want to figure out how quotes work as you just blasted Astargath on part of your English lesson! .
Do you have a bit of brain stuck in your skull, sweetheart? I was quoting joe.

...thus exposing yourself for the true douche you are.  

...says the genius FE meritless noob with a post history that a spam bot would put to shame.

Hey btw, did I get my quotes right?
Just asking, as you seem to be an expert in these matters...

but of course!

So exemplaar, do you think making images instead of typing words will make your insane story more believable?

 Cool
but of course!
exemply is in line for a nobel prize in flatearthretardmeme-sky-fairyology or some such thing...
Hmmmm, I wonder when visiting hours are at the funny farm?  I wanna hang out with exemply and
and talk about flying pancakes and conspiracies and such....

Nope, you still have not figured it out!  Go back and read it very slowly.  I am not very hopeful you will be able to figure it out.  You are great for a laugh though.  You may still want to Google up a bit on quotes before giving English lessons.  Yes, we are laughing at you.

Well aside from livestreams of earth from space and the millions of pictures, also observing stars at night or eclipses. Yes there are some other experiments you can perform yourself. Eratosthenes did one with 2 holes and their shadows but retards don't accept it because it assumes the sun is far away, however 3 holes far away apart will prove the earth is not flat very easily by measuring the angles of the shadows. You can google more experiments.

Trust video's as scientific proof - logic fail - do you believe all the movies you watch?
"livestreams of earth from space"  <-- This is called a quote

You (the douche) calling out your own teams mistakes and attributing them to someone else.

Care to ream out Astargath for his spelling or are you a douche as I have already described?

@badecker,

   Did you know that you're the only other person I've seen that understands the difference between "angular size" and "apparent size"? It's really a shame you're batting for the wrong team here and place the center of the great circle in a globe and not at the horizon as seen by the human eye.

I keep cringing every time I hear a flat earther refer to apparent visual size as "angular size". Understanding that "angular size" is a fixed value whose great circle is based on a planar horizon as seen by the human eye is paramount. The mental gymnastic involved with making this value (that can be measured directly with a sextant) work by replacing the human eye with a globe earth is actually outstanding.

I want to be very clear here because once you understand how the constant value of "angular size" works, it becomes obvious what absolutely undeniable proof the earth is flat the sextant and its ability to directly measure this value is.

"apparent size" = the angle between you and two sides of an object. [This value is a variable and changes as the distance between you and the object changes.]

"angular size" = the angle between the horizon and two sides of an object. [This value is a constant and does not change as the distance between you and the object changes.]










@nutildah,

   The Sun is directly measured to be 32 minutes in diameter; 1 minute = 1 mile. Plane trigonometry can be used to calculate the height of the Sun at about 3,000 miles.

For such an outrageous statement, when we know the distance to the sun, you need to provide some proof.  Smiley

This article explains how we determined it was 93 million miles away, and why people like you are confused.
