1. Why the Earth cannot possibly be flat.

https://www.newsweek.com/behind-curve-netflix-ending-light-experiment-mark-sargent-documentary-movie-1343362 Behind the Curve One of the more jaw-dropping segments of the documentary comes when Bob Knodel, one of the hosts on a popular Flat Earth YouTube channel, walks viewers through an experiment involving a laser gyroscope. As the Earth rotates, the gyroscope appears to lean off-axis, staying in its original position as the Earth's curvature changes in relation. "What we found is, is when we turned on that gyroscope we found that we were picking up a drift. A 15 degree per hour drift," Knodel says, acknowledging that the gyroscope's behavior confirmed to exactly what you'd expect from a gyroscope on a rotating globe. "Now, obviously we were taken aback by that. 'Wow, that's kind of a problem,'" Knodel says. "We obviously were not willing to accept that, and so we started looking for ways to disprove it was actually registering the motion of the Earth." Despite further experimental refinements, Knodel's gyroscope consistently behaves as if the Earth is round. Yet Knodel's beliefs seem unchanged when discussing the experiment at a Flat Earth meetup in Denver. "We don't want to blow this, you know? When you've got \$20,000 in this freaking gyro. If we dumped what we found right now, it would be bad. It would be bad. What I just told you was confidential," Knodel says to another Flat Earther in attendance. Campanella devises an experiment involving three posts of the same height and a high-powered laser. The idea is to set up three measuring posts over a nearly 4 mile length of equal elevation. Once the laser is activated at the first post, its height can be measured at the other two. If the laser is at eight feet on the first post, then five feet at the second, then it indicates the measuring posts are set upon the Earth's curvature. Campanella's proposed laser experiment, as seen in Flat Earth documentary "Behind the Curve," now streaming on Netflix.DELTA-V PRODUCTIONS In his first attempt, Campanella's laser light spread out too much over the distance, making an accurate measurement impossible. But at the very end of Behind the Curve, Campanella comes up with a similar experiment, this time involving a light instead of a laser. With two holes cut into styrofoam sheets at the same height, Campanella hopes to demonstrate that a light shone through the first hole will appear on a camera behind the second hole, indicating that a light, set at the same height as the holes, travelled straight across the surface of the Flat Earth. But if the light needs to be raised to a different height than the holes, it would indicate a curvature, invalidating the Flat Earth. Campanella's proposed light experiment, which seems to invalidate the Flat Earth theory at the ending of documentary "Behind the Curve," now streaming on Netflix.DELTA-V PRODUCTIONS Campanella watches when the light is activated at the same height as the holes, but the light can't be seen on the camera screen. "Lift up your light, way above your head," Campanella says. With the compensation made for the curvature of the Earth, the light immediately appears on the camera. "Interesting," Campanella says. "That's interesting." The documentary ends.
2. Why the Earth cannot possibly be flat.

There is no explanation for this on the flat earth. If anyone wants to post the nonsensical claim used to "explain" this, I shall destroy it with the simplest of diagrams.
3. Why the Earth cannot possibly be flat.

Gravity: Gravity completely debunks the flat earth all on its own.
4. Why the Earth cannot possibly be flat.

These are crepuscular rays that form similar to a train track in terms of their direction. They appear to cast a pyramid to the observer, just like the tracks. They recede into the distance, just like the track. HOWEVER - these ones below don't work with a flat earth at all. No daft assertion available with this one.... https://www.atoptics.co.uk/atoptics/anti1.htm#:~:text=Crepuscular rays appear to converge,sphere directly opposite the sun. Flat earthers cannot explain anti-crepuscular rays (not with anything from reality that is!).
5. Why the Earth cannot possibly be flat.

The flat earther casually shoots himself in the foot. Notice how the Sun is now about a quarter the size and in terms of its proximity to the artificial horizon it's about halfway from when it started. Notice also all the garbage he left up because he knows full well it never goes lower than the worktop. It is impossible. To really hammer this home, the sizes of the Sun projected onto his false horizon show the vanishing point on a flat Earth - looks to be on the small side. QED. The angular velocity of the Sun anywhere on Earth is measurably the same - 15 degrees of arc per hour. This is impossible on a flat Earth with the variable distances claimed from observer to the Sun.
6. Why the Earth cannot possibly be flat.

Two statements... The Sun, no matter what distance it is away from Earth, changes elevation all over the world during the day. It is simultaneously observed by half the Earth. The scenarios that follow are used to demonstrate speed variances. The height of the Sun for this purpose is not relevant..... Point one on the globe is where the Sun is directly above: Just as an example using 3000 miles and the Sun changing from 15 degrees/30 degrees/45 degrees from zenith(directly overhead) - that is 3 one hour movements everywhere on Earth - proven and irrefutable. http://www.cleavebooks.co.uk/scol/calrtri.htm Little a is 3000 Big A is 75 degrees - It has travelled 804 miles from zenith. So average 804 mph. Little a is 3000 Big A is 60 degrees - It has travelled 1730 miles from zenith. 1730-804 = 926. So average 926 mph now! Little a is 3000 Big A is 45 degrees - It has travelled 3000 miles from zenith. 3000-1730 = 1270. So average 1270 mph now! Point two simultaneoulsy on the globe is where the Sun is at 75 degrees to observer at its highest elevation: Little a is 3000 Big A is 60 degrees - It has travelled 1730 miles from zenith. It began 804 miles away from zenith. So average 926 mph. Little a is 3000 Big A is 45 degrees - It has travelled 3000 miles from zenith. 3000-1730 = 1270. So average 1270 mph now! Little a is 3000 Big A is 15 degrees - It has travelled 11,200 miles from zenith. 11200-3000 = 8200. So average 8200 mph average now! In hour 1 at two different points the Sun is travelling 804 mph and 926 mph at the same time!! In hour 2 at two different points the Sun is travelling 926 mph and 1270 mph at the same time!! In hour 3 at two different points the Sun is travelling 1270 mph and 8200 mph at the same time!! Now BASIC mathematics tells us the Sun MUST be covering that distance, so it is not apparent distance. These are actual figures.
7. Why the Earth cannot possibly be flat.

The closest possible distance the Sun can be to the Earth is a ridiculous Everest height. Computing the distance to the Sun on a flat earth when it is 0.001 degrees above the visual horizon and at a ludicrous and provably impossible distance of 5 miles away..... http://www.cleavebooks.co.uk/scol/calrtri.htm a= 5 miles A= 0.001 degrees Distance to object is 286,000 miles. https://www.omnicalculator.com/math/right-triangle-side-angle Distance to object 286,479 miles. https://www.calculator.net/right-triangle-calculator.html?av=5&alphav=0.001&alphaunit=d&bv=&betav=&betaunit=d&cv=&hv=&areav=+&perimeterv=&x=103&y=13 Distance to object 286,478.89754 miles. A bit high don't you think?

9. NASA Lies ..... There Is No Such Thing As Space

@alexa Your post is spam - duplicate post requires a duplicate response... Face palming stuff. The astrolabe was designed for a spherical Earth. Similar to a sextant. An astrolabe consists of a disk, called the mater (mother), which is deep enough to hold one or more flat plates called tympans, or climates. A tympan is made for a specific latitude and is engraved with a stereographic projection of circles denoting azimuth and altitude and representing the portion of the celestial sphere above the local horizon. The rim of the mater is typically graduated into hours of time, degrees of arc, or both.

CAN YOU READ!!? The pressure gets lower and lower and lower, like a vanishing point until it is barely nothing next to a vacuum. The final parts of the almost zero pressure atoms are held gently in place by gravity. Learn something instead of this continued display of ignorance.
12. NASA Lies ..... There Is No Such Thing As Space

This is trolling. You have been shown quite clearly that on a diving plane the absolute limit is 30 seconds for reasons that they don't want to crash the damn plane! You have been presented CONTINUOUS weightless footage from 1969 and 1973 that FAR exceeds this, is CLEARLY unedited and impossible to fake in the manner presented. Not least the size of the area on Skylab! I find this continued evasion and diversion over and over again something way beyond pathetic. Filmed in small chunks and edited together, you can actually see clear variances in motion between verse and chorus. On skylab, there is a continuous sequence of all astronauts spinning together. There are no cuts and no periods of gravity!
13. The Flat Earth/Globe Earth Discussion Thread

Rubbish. There are meteorites recorded every single day. You have a problem with a big bang and a fluke planet with life, but not with some magic cosmic Sky Wizard conjuring up all sorts of crapola and building a magic dome. GTFO!! The audacity of this bloke quoting physics. Physics exactly allows for it and explains it with perfection. LMAO, he quoted fizzix again. What the hell is "enclosed" about the entire universe? It is sweet FA to do with "freebloodymasons". It is absurd for anyone to pigeon hole the entire community of cosmology and other sciences into the nod and wink "one trouser leg hoisted" society. And it does. The atmosphere gets thinner and thinner as it reaches vacuum....all a product of gravity. Sea level is pressurised from the weight of air above, the higher you go the less pressure, until there is no weight above and no pressure. Progressive and simple. You seem to be under some crazy impression that a vacuum sucks air in?! It doesn't. It is a matter of pressure. If you puncture a hole in a vacuum container, air pressure and air pressure alone will send molecules into the container. If the outside pressure is 5psi it will suck it in slower.The lower the pressure, the lower the flow rate. The higher the altitude the lower the pressure gets until the equilibrium of low pressure/ gravitational attraction and vacuum are as one. Physics and you are not good friends. You know less than nothing about any of this. Your knowledge base relies on uninformed flat earth gossip.

That is what gives it rigidity, plus all those top sections too. And widen it to put all that stuff on the edges as well. Then find somebody daft enough to dive it like that over and over with all the vital cross members missing and the momentum it would generate.
15. The Flat Earth/Globe Earth Discussion Thread

Not intentionally. Just you mentioned Apollo. The Skylab section is massive, there isn't a plane in the world that big and if you dive one of the massive planes like that you would really struggle. This proves weightlessness in space before CGI and obviously not hollywood fx. Space means orbits. Orbits mean planet.
16. The Flat Earth/Globe Earth Discussion Thread

It will fall until it is in equilibrium with the gravitational mass attracting it! It is bugger all to do with it hitting anything If your bullshit explanation had any validity at all it could EASILY be proven. However the opposite is true. Things fall at the same speed in a vacuum proven in the video shown. They also fall at the same speeds regardless of bloody density. A banana will fall at the same speed as an identical shaped piece of lead - only air resistance alters the speed. Such astonishing ignorance of basic buoyancy. It will rise until it is matched in density by the surrounding atmosphere. Of course anything in the way will bloody stop it....duhhhh. If density was the reason for gravity where does the force come from to move anything!? If it was density, something is starting the object to move downwards. In Mexico City the rules of gravity are the same as at sea level....right there your clueless claim debunked. As are the crepuscular rays from the Sun! Oh and of course you ignored the anti-crepuscular rays didn't you. OMG, is he really trying to show us he knows about the vanishing point?! This is where things farther away get smaller.....like the Sun on a flat earth would do The truly dumb claim that the boat isn't going over the horizon it's just out of sight. It tells us you are making a bullshit argument. When the ship disappears bottom first and continues to do with the top full in view, it isn't a vanishing point issue. Provable bullshit. If you can only see the top part it's over the curve.
17. The Flat Earth/Globe Earth Discussion Thread

@amy G @zArk @alexa There is no bullshit CGI or Hollywood speshul effex argument for this. It is 5 minutes of continuous weightlessness! Parabolic flights are 25 seconds of weightlessness, 5 seconds of intermediate, followed by 2Gs. I await your hurried explanation of this, or more probably cowardly evasion.
18. The engine that will change space programs

Not really going to change anything except the affordability of small sized satellite launches. There is constant demand for them, so a small lightweight rocket that can do it on the cheap is going to satisfy that market.
19. The Flat Earth/Globe Earth Discussion Thread

Go to the appropriate thread....post your claim please. You have been misled and I can prove it. It's also too long for parabolic flight and the Buzz sequence is longer than that excerpt.
20. Managed to film a strange object in the sky.

@amy G I need your explanation for this written down, I know what it is. It will not stand up to scrutiny. Therefore you will ignore this

24. NASA Lies ..... There Is No Such Thing As Space

@alexa Six full minutes of continuous weightlessness on board the ISS: If you can't tell the difference between that and the edited Hollywood stuff then you really cannot be reached. Fence sitters - ISS, in space.
