have never met a flat Earther that can explain this
I live in the western US
the distance from LA to Las Vegas is ~270miles
I've been to Sydney, Australia
the distance from the west city limits to the coast is ~40 miles
yet all flat Earth maps show those distances to be relatively the same
especially the north pole as center map
in fact the only map that shows those distances to scale as what I have experienced them to be is a globe
if any flat Earther can explain that discrepancy w/o calling me a shill
I might listen to what they have to say

It gives evidence in the holy bible that the earth is flat so I believe what god says.
>>
I think it's plausible. I really do.
>>
>>699532920
it contradicts the theory of a flat Earth and supports the theory of a spherical Earth
and if the Earth were flat the Sun would be visible at all locations on Earth at the same time
as would the Moon
and the relative size of both bodies would change throughout the day and month
and the only flat Earth theory that support Lunar phases has both bodies doing circuits at fixed altitudes above the Earth, which would require my first point to be true

>>699533892
The sizes do change during the day. The sun is much bright when it pops up over the flat edge, same with the moon.

The flat edges make them brighter. U can see this proved when watching pop up and down.

size
not luminescence
the lowered luminescence is due to the light passing through more atmosphere the further the body is from being directly overhead
the size, when measured, does not change
it only appears to change when not measured because the observer has something to compare scale during rise and set

>>699535346
yes
the Romans made it up
they arbitrarily said one mile is equal to 1000 paces
and called Mille pacum
literally 1000 paces
later Christians standardized a pace
giving us the English mile, Spanish mile, French mile, and nautical mile
since then the Spanish and French quit using miles in favor of meters
another arbitrary distance
but that doesn't make them comepletely useless because all those distances are standardized so that a mile is the same distance at the north pole, south pole, on Jupiter, and everywhere in the universe
and the same for meters

excellent
lets test it
wait until the next full Moon
take a camera
place it on a tripod
point it at the rising Moon
take a picture
don't move the tripod
wait until the Moon has reached its apex
take another picture
measure how many pixels wide the moon is
I can guarantee the pictures you take (provided yo do not move or adjust the tripod) will support my hypothesis that the Moon is the same relative size at both points and disprove your hypothesis that the Moon changes relative size as it transits the sky

You actually can't but it proves nothing because you can't see the curve of a globe if you're fucking standing on it. How are you going to see the curve below what you're standing on. The earth's not a cylinder, it's a sphere.

Once people realize what flat earth is all about, then this bullshit will stop.

It's obviously an incorrect theory proposed by people that like to argue.

People will immediately say it's stupid bc if the earth is really flat, that means you've been lied to about major things your entire life. That's a very scary thing for people to accept, because then you just don't know what's real.

It is just as stupid to think the earth is flat as it is to think we're on a spinning ball hurdling through space at crazy speeds. inb4 muh gravity

You are going to believe what you want, but here goes, take a time lapse video of the sun, following it from horizon to horizon. Measure the sun on the screen. Stop being a fucking Christy faggot. Also, while the earth itsn't a perfect sphere (no celestial body really is) it is an elipsoid, a roughly round object. Think of it like this, objects have gravity, an attractive force that draws them together, it is one of the weaker forces in the universe. All objects attract to the center of mass, so accretion remains consistant during planetary formation because the center of mass shifts as material builds up. We aren't falling through space, we are falling towards the center of the earth. Earth is falling around the sun in a roughly eliptical orbit. The sun is falling around the galactic hub. We don't actually fall INTO the sun because our velocity provides enough centripital acceleration to keep us orbiting. Gravity is a tether and we are basically whipping around the sun, and with no resistance to slow us down in the vacuum of space, we maintain our velocity.

Flat earth relies on "government conspiracy" too heavily to be even meme-worthy. Literally everyone who has ever flown a plane, dealt with satellites, or programmed GPS has been straight up lying about everything they do. Flat Earth literally says satellites and GPS are conspiracies that the government tells you to keep you believing the earth is round.

At a certain point about 25% of the population has to be in on flat earth to even keep up with the insane tin foil hatting.

If Flat Earth could explain even just the majority of observations then it could be worth debating as an exercise.

The magical light ray hypothesis is true. The lights are bouncing of the edge.

We can't go the edge and look because the US has navy ships and drones and shit. They kill us if we get too close. That's why no one has seen hehe edge.

Trump will lead us the the edge and finally reveal the truth!

My trips prove I am right. For further proof, later gospels contain contradictions with earlier ones, but the mistakes are easy to explain if you realize that they would be made by someone who was using a greek version of the existing books to copy/paste from.

It's theory. It is well documented observable theory. Just like evolution. It has mountains of observable evidence.
