    Common sense says it would have absolutely no effect on anything major. Think if the sun and moon were gone for even an entire 24 hour period it would only be dark for 24 hours. There would be no tides or current, let's say and temperature changes. A little more magical gravity? Perhaps, but off the top of my head I can't think of anything too bad that would happen if the sun and moon stood still in the firmament. But like I said, in your universe God would have had to stop at least one more thing, the earth. And perhaps the whole "universe".

    I've been watching it for a while now and saw some nice shots of the "curvature" but I'm not convinced. I'm not trying to have a one track mind but it really does look too fake to me.

    That's a cool depiction. First I've seen of that. I tried to post the image but it won't let me. It's from the Library Of Congress. I wonder what year it's from. Good work, User.

    If an object stood 100 ft. above sea level, could it be seen by a ship 40 miles away or would it be hidden by the curvature of the earth?
    I ask because ships have reported seeing the lighthouse at Cape Hatteras from 40 miles away.

    Rob Skiba shows a view across Lake Michigan all the way to Chicago at over 60 miles I think, maybe more. I'll post it some time or another one, because several people have done it since the local weatherman said on TV that it was a mirage. NOT.

    If the flat earth were a globe, the aircraft would have to fly pointed downward at a rate of 9.45 miles per minute to avoid flying into orbit

    Someone explain, with calculations, how a Foucault pendulum works if we're not a on a spinning globe?

    Also, how did Eratosthenes, hundreds of years before Christ, calculate to a high degree of precision the circumference of the Earth,using geometry and the observation of the Sun, if it's not a sphere?

    His number will precisely tell you how far it is from Egypt to New York (or for the distance between any other two points on the Earth for that matter). How did that happen, if the Earth isn't a sphere?
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    No, they'd merely have to fly in a horizontal path. Think about it.
