Thread: The earth is flat and we never went to the moon

Again, Dave, unless you can see a 1/7920th of a mile drop at a distance of one mile away, you're not going to be able to see the curve of the earth at ground level.

Dave, there are 63,360 inches in 1 mile. 8 inches is not that much of a drop after one mile, neither is

This is the decimal result when you divide 8/63360 (or reduced to 1/79720):

0.000126262626262626262626262626262626262626...(nu mber continues infinitely)

That is 0.012626262626262626262626...% of a mile. You simply can't see that kind of a difference 1 mile away. That's why people like you make the claim that the earth is flat, because you can't comprehend the scale of the earth.

The verses I quoted have everything to do with Biblical cosmology. Flat earth cosmology includes everything I said about the sun, moon, and stars.

They appear so. Perhaps the CGI isn't accurate. Could they be discs instead?

A jet can fly straight or adjust for a drop that comes quickly when you're moving at 600 mph. It only takes minutes for the earth to drop exponentially.

It was settled, or at least stated, that the images that look like blobs and orbs and not actual planets are out of focus, and intentionally so.

Don't believe me? Go buy a telescope and aim it at one of the planets, and put it in focus, and then tell me which set of images that planet looks like.

Let's walk before we fly, Dave.

Can you discern the above percentage of a mile change at a mile away?
