Shape of the Earth question

Post by englishchief »

Been thinking about this for a while.

Are there any images/video feeds that 'prove' the Earth is round that are provided by individuals/companies that aren't in some way connected to governments and ultimately the global elite?

Not saying the Earth is flat or round or any other shape, but how can we trust these sources who are connected to the global elite (the 13 families etc)

Have you ever seen Cian Healy in the same room as Dylan Hartley?

You can see the curvature of the Earth when you are in a plane - assuming there is no cloud cover.

The earth is spherical . That's the more accurate way of describing it.

So many questions, but surely the only question you should be asking is...what could anyone possibly have to gain by making up the shape of the earth?



It's an oblate spheroid by the way :thumbup:

No you can't, it just disappears as your vision is limited.

This is sort of what I'm getting at. But I think most of the answers are religion-related.

As in "only someone dull enough to believe in God could also believe that a group of elite families pretend the world is spherical when in fact it's some other shape for no good reason" kind of thing?

In which case I totally agree. :thumbup:

If you just want to get from a to b then maybe just thinking that the earth is flat might be your best option. Avoid worrying about coming to the edge. Two other flat things go across the sky at night and during the day. Wonder if these flat things have any thickness?

Yes you can - you can also see it from some very tall buildings when visibility is good.

Absolutely, one's vision doesn't have the range to see the moon, let alone stars.

On a clear day at sea you can see another ship "hull down" on the horizon. That is you only see the accomodation block and perhaps her cranes at first. Then as it gets nearer the hull rises above the horizon and becomes visible. All this is caused by the curvature of the Earth. Hence the Earth is an Oblate Spheroid.

Apparently that's fake because the planes fuselage is "heavily curved".

Flat earthers may seem like a friendly eccentric bunch but their anti-science approach should worry people.

When I was working from the ATC tower at RAF Lossiemouth, on a clear day with binoculars you could see only the top parts of Rigs and sea wind farms due to curvature of the earth. Flat earthers are morons.
