He most definitely has a predictive model that will show the next thousand eclipses and has the maths to prove it..

Or 'read the thread, do you own research, I've answered this' could be an option.

Isn't it weird that the magic dark sun floats in front of the moon/sun at exactly the same time that the round earth predicts they line up.

Maybe he is only talking about what causes eclipses on the moon, so maybe this one should have said "moon".

sorry bro, no gimmick here.. I am also straight edge currently (building up discipline so I can enjoy good stuff responsibly when I start chilling again), sleeping on the floor most of the time, believe in karma because I had a glimpse multiple times (in altered states of mind) in its mechanism and it is there I can tell you.. Yea, so no gimmick here good sir..

Apparently not.

First image: Being as charitable as possible, you might be left with two explanations that are both consistent with the measurements provided, but deciding that one is the explanation for no given reason would be a fallacy of personal incredulity.
Second image is a strawman fallacy (where has it been argued that the distance of the sun is based on light shining an infinite distance?) and a non-sequitur (it does not follow that because the inverse-square law applies to the intensity of light, that therefore the Sun is not x distance away).
Third image was already discussed.
Fourth image is basically a repeat of the first.


You seemed to have skipped over my question, and I've spent all this time responding to you! That's a little unfair

You havent adequately addressed any of the 4 images I posted which is fine. I'm not going to place an X on your diagram. Im not entirely sure how far away the Sun is when it disappears beyond the horizon. I would guess 2-3k miles.

San Diego is 3,000 miles from Boston. So at noon (sun directly overhead) in San Diego, it must be sunset in Boston, yes?

Honolulu is 5,465 miles from Boston. And yet, somehow the sun is visible in both locations for multiple hours.

Also, Santiago, Chile is 5,211 miles from Boston. The sun is visible in basically the same direction for the same amount of time in both cities. Explain.

Really great talk covering how the globe is impossible and all the probabilities of what our true cosmology could be.

I'd be happy to hear your concerns. For example "Try using words to explain the thought process in your head that lead you to such a conclusion. Be detailed."

In my diagram, I placed the observer 9k miles from the Sun, at least three times further than your proposed distance. From there, the Sun is being viewed with the shallowest possible angle, and it is still close to twenty degrees from horizontal.

At your proposed distance, 3k miles from the observer, the angle is even steeper, 45 degrees.

Perhaps you should think about the honest approach, and admit that there is nowhere to put an x on this diagram that would make the Sun appear to touch the horizon. Taking this honest approach does not force you to immediately accept a globe Earth, but it should make an honest person accept that the measurements you are working with are very wrong.

It's pointless discussing distances with someone who changes from 'a few miles up' to 'maybe 3000 miles' without flinching.

Logic, maths and observation are just out the window
