It really boils down to flat earthers not understanding scale.

I posed a question earlier that went unanswered.

How do you draw a curve on a computer screen? A series of very small flat lines at very acute angles to each other. From far away at high resolutions the curve looks smooth, nothing looks flat. But up close, very very close all you can see looks flat for as far as the eye can see.

But start zooming out and eventually you see the curve.

We don't need "fancy" NASA pictures. We don't need trans-Antarctic flights. Hell, we don't even need ships disappearing in the horizon.

We've known the Earth is spherical since the ancient greeks. 2,500 years ago. We just needed a straight stick. For ****s sake.

Yeah, that straight stick is one of Satan's horns.

Re: Hoo boy: the flat earth, "scientism", Satan, and the Transgender agenda. Wake up sheeple!

2 Corinthians 4:4 (NLT)...

Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don't believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don't understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

Psalms 19:1 (KJV 2000)...

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handiwork.

Genesis 1:6-8 (KJV)...

6: And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

7: And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

8: And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

Having followed this thread with some regularity, I feel like this is smoking gun evidence that at a minimum satellites are real. If you accept the premise that everything I stated is true, would either of you agree that satellites must be real?
Moo, can you please address this?

You receive picture files at work of the ground from above, why do you assume that date is from satellites?

Can you please show me a piece of tech that can take multiple images from the same position in the sky for years on end?

If your answer is drones then please tell me where the drones get power from.

Tech = Planes and balloons, ez.

Satellites = Operate in thousands of degrees, camera zooms farther than any other tech while shooting stable moving thousands of mph, wireless transmission tech leagues better than any else, aboard a platform that never needs repairs. Nice fantasy tech there, straight from imagination of Arthur C Clarke.


Dubay is probably a tranny but he certainly has some flow.

Please show me a plane or balloon that can observe a stationary position for years on end giving constant data.

Satellites operate at many tempertures but it never reaches the thousands, 300 degrees celsius is the highest it gets. Plenty of telescopes on Earth have lens as powerful as satellites. They have been sending radio signals from one side of the world to the other for over 100 years, what makes the transmission in satellites leagues better? They are repairing a satellite called the ISS all the time and you can watch it live on the youtubes, the ones they can't repair fall back to Earth when they fault, all satellites will eventually fall back to Earth and none will stay in space forever. It's amazing tech that you can easily look into yourself but instead your listening to bad raps about care bears.

You are making an assumption that satellites are stationary above a position. Clearly an object moving thousands of mph above an object rotating a thousand mph moving tens of thousands mph is hardly stationary.

Temperature is over 2000C in exosphere and thermosphere where satellites are purported to fly. These are distances of 20000 miles. You think these things work flawlessly in those conditions, never need repair, on technology older than a 90s cell phone, lol.

Oh, and how do radio signals get sent from one side of the world to the other if it's a sphere?

Have you ever been to the exosphere? No? Then how do you know how hot it gets?

Boom, checkmate!

By bouncing the signals off the ionosphere, as everyone already knew, except you.

Way too hot. Radio signals would burn off.
