# The Flat Earth/Globe Earth Discussion Thread

## Recommended Posts

A very compelling view of Earth from up on high - annoying that they make the effort to go all the way up there - to film with a normal camera that is not a fisheye lens -  and the camera only pans a few degrees to the left and right?  After all that trouble?

This lighthouse that is 13.8 miles away is supposed to be hidden (due to the earths curvature) behind at least 80 foot of water, however, it can be zoomed in on using a powerful camera (nikon p1000)  Water does not retain a curve.

What height is the camera above the water? Without providing full information there's no way that 80ft drop can be calculated.

It is on the ground level. You can see sandy beach at the bottom.

Not sure about this Web, as dale mentions, it seems the camera is on some kind of short-medium height tripod just sitting on the sand.

If the drop is 8" per mile over that distance the total drop is 9.2 ft ,if you apply the equation in both directions you have a drop from each side of the horizon with regards to line of sight of  4.6 ft that is a little shy of 80ft and I see the magical  Nikon P1000 has be mentioned for the umpteenth time.

You should finish the statement water doesn't retain a curve (IN A CONTAINER)

You're very correct there? The drop according to earth with curvature is 8" per mile? Big error there by the poster and by me for hastily posting this, thanks Peter.
Yes I suppose you're right there too (regarding the container statement)

I thought the calculation was approximately 8" per mile squared. So that would be 13.8 squared x 8" = 1,523.52" i.e. about 126.9 feet.

Do correct my calculation if it is incorrect.

I am sure the squared term is there and is often forgotten.

Thanks CC, maths was never my strongpoint, I'm sure confused here?.....

This poster is very underhanded,where do you build lighthouses ,on a cliff,one would have to ask how tall are the cliffs and how tall is the lighthouse also I checked his math and he has used 8" squared per mile which is incorrect.

Lets just say it is correct however, over that distance you would have a drop of 883.2 " or 73.6 ft then he has taken the liberty to round this figure up to 80ft  an increase of 6.4ft  or 4.71 % nearly one 20th of the total figure.

Now if you add the height of the lighthouse  and the height of the cliffs together ,we don't know but I would surmise they are a little bit more than eighty feet and therefore even with this great inaccuracy would still be visible.

So lets apply the equation correctly ,since we are actually using line of sight from the camera lens to the lighthouse that would give us a mid point or horizon of 6.9 miles,therefore the total drop from the horizon to each point (at sea level)

is only going to be 36.8 ft,and remember these are highly inflated figures,and no I haven't taken the height of the lighthouse and camera lens into account as these are unknown ,on purpose I would imagine

It says 'ancient', bound to be right.

And if NASA is saying the Earth is a globe, it is bound to be a lie, you can be sure of it. They've been lying to us all this time, why change anything?

Now my question is..... you hear about earthquakes caused by the tectonic plates movement. How does that work in the FE model?

Furthermore, I have a problem with the above model. We are back to zero..... why the water above the firmament is spherical? What keeps it? Another firmament?

Good questions here Dale.

IMO -Earthquakes are caused by the expansion/the growing of the earth & after the firmament are the Heavens, I've no idea why the Ancients would depict the waters as spherical. You've got me here   Maybe space as we know it is all water and is what the whole earth floats in. As it tells us in scriptures, He hangs the earth upon nothing.

It was about why people believe in a flat earth and exclude all evidence to the contrary , if it was a bit close to home and rattled a few cages sorry

No it was because, historically you have refused to use videos to back yourself up.

No that is not entirely true ,I have said that I don't do videos either for or against because I like to think for myself, however since I have said the very same thing previously in this thread a long time ago with regards to flat earth beliefs and religion,I thought the video was valid,like I said if it was a bit close to home ,sorry

Hugo Talks - In this video he talks about Flat Earth @ 9:36. Is he wrong or is he right ?

I would say half & half see my thread Embryonic Earth;

Crazy how this thread continues while no one has answered my post from ages ago that entirely refutes a Flat Earth.

So, once again - where can I obtain a Nautical Almanac for accurate navigation on Flat Earth?

Don't feel singled out ,no one has answered any of mine either, I could put up a list ,but I would be wasting my time

I haven't seen one, however if they do indeed exist I would try Gone Bonkers ,Silly Sollies,King Kong or any other \$2 discount store.

I agree on this occasion.

alexa has posted a Simpson's video which indicated the firmament and water above so that should have concluded that FE is true.

I guess people missed that post.

alexa gave so I'll watch it later when I have calmed down.

btw, SuperstarNeilC...... it's possible that I am having a Mandela effect moment.... I thought your name has always been SuperSonicC
