This is law of perspective. Everything comes to a convergence point at the end of your line of sight. That means that the earth below you rises up and the sky above sinks down. The water eventually appears higher than the hull because it is closer to you.

Yeah, how does the Earth's magnetic field, which is weaker than an average magnet cause the sun to change orbits?

I dont know what the magnetic pull is at the north pole but something that powerful would have an effect on the sun that is much smaller and closer in the FE model.

After realizing the earth is flat the question becomes what is above? Is it a dome? Is it a pyramid?

Finding out that we live in a geocentric universe with a lid on top of it is an explanation for why people would cover this up. It proves that there is a life form out there that is incredibly more advanced than we are and that this plane is made for us. It completely reshapes the paradigm of society.

My favorite parts of FE'ers is reading the parts of science they put their faith in and the parts of science they dont.

Like the fundamentally believe science is lying to us about the shape of the earth, but not about the flatness of kansas. For example.

Which lighthouse are you talking about? There are two currently in operation on the Isle of Wight, and neither of them is called the "Isle of Wight Lighthouse". These are:

Needles Lighthouse

St. Catherine's Lighthouse

Neither of those are close to 180 feet high. It almost sounds like you're just making stuff up...

definitely not arbitrary, they are used to support his crazy theory.

I am pretty sure he is a troll, but there are no doubt genuine flat earthers.

You mean the default paradigm that everybody believed and violently defended for thousands of years?

It's almost like when you zoom in so the boat looks like it is 30 feet away, that it looks like it is 30 feet away.

The most visible 'light house' is the top of the empire state building which stands 1400 feet. This can be seen at a distance of 80 miles on the ground and 300 miles in the air. Mathematically impossible on a RE.

MATHEMATICALLY IMPOSSIBLE. I'm convinced.

So you're saying that the net effect of disc-earth's magnetic field and gravity of the sun/moon/disc-earth system causes the sun and moon to orbit an empty spot a few hundred miles(?) above disc-earth? What causes a stationary disc to have a magnetic field in the first place? And what causes the size of the orbit to fluctuate?

I love how he randomly throws out the word mathematically like he even knows what math he is referring to, how it works, how to even demonstrate it, or that the very math he's appealing to actually destroys his entire "model" - (AFAIK no FE model really exists, they can never agree on anything).

Further reading is pretty hilarious though. Searching "trigonometry" on the flat earth society forum only turns up like 1 thread.

Re: The biggest lie: Revisiting Heliocenticisim and a Flat Earth for the first time

Antarctica is the ice wall that is the physical barrier to the ends of the earth (as far as we can suppose). The ice wall surrounds the entire planet whose climate is much more harsh than the North Pole. Captain Cook became the first modern explorer known to have breached the Antarctic Circle and reached the ice barrier. During three voyages, lasting three years and eight days, Captain Cook and crew sailed a total of 60,000 miles along the Antarctic coastline never once finding an inlet or path through or beyond the massive glacial wall. This is a distance long enough to circumnavigate the globe several times!

The midnight sun does not exist in Antarctica. Heliocentrists also cannot explain why the Midnight Sun phenomenon is not experienced anywhere in the Southern hemisphere at any time of year. Quite to the contrary, it has been recorded by the Royal Belgian Geographical Society in “Expedition Antarctique Belge,” that during the most severe part of the Antarctic winter, from 71 degrees South latitude onwards, the sun sets on May 17th and is not seen above the horizon again until July 21st! This is completely at odds with the ball-Earth theory, but easily explained by the flat-Earth model. The Midnight Sun is seen from high altitudes in extreme Northern latitudes during Arctic summer because the Sun, at its inner-most cycle, is circling tightly enough around the polar center that it remains visible above the horizon for someone at such a vantage point. Likewise, in extreme Southern latitudes during Arctic summer, the Sun completely disappears from view for over 2 months because there at the Northern Tropic, at the inner-most arc of its boomerang journey, the Sun is circling the Northern center too tightly to be seen from the Southern circumference.

World governments are well aware that Antarctica is something very different than what we are told. Look at the room the members of the Antarctica Treaty System meet in (:

I also like how he thinks the existence of flat planes suggests uniform flatness across the entire earth's surface, like it's totally impossible to have a flat object on top of an elliptical plane.

Using that logic I can point at a mountain and tell you the earth is actually jagged like a sea urchin.
