Why the Earth cannot possibly be flat.

Answered already and ignored by you.

Your answers mean nothing when based in assumptions that you then argue with yourself over. This, while never realizing you have not represented objective reality along with other fallacious reasoning.

 

Let's read #1 again:

1) The horizon always appears perfectly flat 360 degrees
around the observer regardless of altitude. All amateur
balloon, rocket, plane and drone footage show a completely
flat horizon over 20+ miles high. Only NASA and other
government “space agencies” show curvature in their fake
CGI photos/videos.

 

Everyone who has looked at the world knows this is fact, that this is how our eyes and brain work to make images that we can understand. This was explained to you more than once, but you refuse to even try and understand the implications.

 

Horizon line-is always at eye level. Picture yourself at the seashore and looking out at the ocean you notice that the water meets the sky at your eye level. This never changes. You may be in an airplane 1000 feet up and the level that the ocean meets the sky is still at your eye level! Or you may be lying down on the beach and the ocean level drops with you. Think of it as an invisible plane that cuts through everything, that always exists at eye level.

http://studiochalkboard.evansville.edu/lp-intro.html

 

Now that we have established the actual facts, let's use simple logic. The horizon, always horizontal, at eye level for all 360 degrees means that curvature does not exist.

If we lived on a ball with the imagined radius, a visible 360 degree horizontal horizon would not be possible. A visible 360 degree horizontal horizon is what has been established, therefore the Earth we live on cannot have that radius and r is falsified.

 

You're done... it's over.

@oddsnsods, see?

You ignored that this was covered in the other thread and went on anyways in your pretend world. Your claim is a meaningless and provably inaccurate piece of garbage.....

The above video is open sourced, has been out there since 2017 and there is no debunk. There is the real math. The horizon stays at high level the entire time in real life as shown while the drop is dramatic and obvious if we were on a spinning ball with your imagined radius.

"The ISS shows curvature as do all the images taken during the Apollo missions. If you are just going to cry faaaaake, what's the point?

I refuse to appeal to the authority of known liars and you know this too.

The Earth is very, very big. At aircraft cruising altitude you will only see 3.2 degrees of variance and that if you can see a full 90 degrees of span."

The above is useless as it does not represent observable reality. Keep pulling whatever numbers you like from wherever you like and keep arguing with yourself. It is a fascinating comedy routine. And probably just a coincidence, but every nasa shill script has something about "the Earth is very, very big." How very, very scientific.

I also did number 2 as well....

No, you did nothing of the sort. You just claim that as always and hope that nobody cares enough to check you.

 

2) The horizon always rises to the eye level of the observer
as altitude is gained, so you never have to look down to see
it. If Earth were in fact a globe, no matter how large, as you
ascended the horizon would stay fixed and the observer /
camera would have to tilt looking down further and further
to see it.

 

This is proven above with the actual math.

First and second  "proofs" from Eric Doyoubuy - both bollocks. The man is an imbecile.

Accusing your enemy of what you are guilty of is a common technique used to stifle discussion and run from truth.

I see that again you have assumed a spherical earth and then used it as your proof. This is the same logical fallacy you continue to employ and it keeps you from even understanding the questions.

I have assumed nothing whatsoever. I will not be patronized by somebody with your incredibly inept understanding who has about 10 posts alone on this thread that they cowardly avoid......A person who

Basic Perspective: Eye Level and Horizon Line

Horizon Line and Eye Level

The terms “horizon line” and “eye level” are often used synonymously. Horizon line/eye level refer to a physical/visual boundary where sky separates from land or water. It is the actual height of the viewer’s eyes when looking at an object, interior scene, or an exterior scene.

Basic Perspective: Converging Lines

The edges of objects appear to converge or taper as they recede in the distance to a common point on the eye level or horizon line. In Linear Perspective this is referred to as a Vanishing Point.

Note: Converging lines are parallel in reality, but they appear to converge because of diminution. In art this is called “perspectively parallel.”

Examples

Finding Eye Level — Vanishing Point: All of the parallel edges of stairs, columns, ceiling, etc. in the room point to the vanishing point which is on the horizon line/eye level.

The Horizon / Eye Level is the axis around which a perspective drawing is constructed.

  • In perspective drawing, the horizon also happens to be the viewer's eye-level.

  • When we are outdoors we use the horizon as a point of reference to judge the scale and distance of objects in relation to us.

  • In art, we tend to use the term 'eye level', rather than 'horizon', as in many pictures the horizon is hidden by walls, buildings, trees, hills etc.

To illustrate the significance of the horizon / eye level in perspective drawing we have added some tourists to our linear and aerial perspective scene.

  • Note how all four figures share the same eye level - i.e. the horizon of the picture. This suggests that they are all the same height and are standing on the same plane. Because the horizon happens to be our eye level, it also suggests that the figures are the same height as any viewer of the picture. As a result, the organization of scale and distance in the drawing makes good visual sense.

  • If you click on the flip icon it should reveal our second image. Although the figures are still the same size, their eye levels no longer have any relationship to the eye level of the picture. As a result, the scale of the figures is totally confused.

  • This demonstrates the importance of the horizon / eye level to the organization of scale and distance in a perspective drawing. It also illustrates the meaning of Leonardo's famous quote that 'Perspective is to painting what the bridle is to the horse, the rudder to a ship'.

Worthing to Birling Gap

Distance: 27 miles/43.4 km

Thursday, August 6, 2020, 6:15 PM

 

Examine the video at 8:07

Distance: 27 miles/43.4 km

Camera: 26 feet above tide level

Target - Birling Gap cliff: 223 feet above sea level

Based on a sphere with the radius you assume, an amazing 285 feet should be hidden!

And the horizon again is beyond everything.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gA8VCCi8Qy0

 

If Earth were a globe with a radius of 3,959 miles, the above video would not be possible. The video is right there, therefore, the Earth is not a globe with said radius.

The responses to this from the globurists are few, far between and quite absurd when they even try to explain this away.

Your responses mean nothing when you have the understanding of a fig leaf. There is nothing fallacious about using mathematics to prove something and a mathematician, which you clearly lied about, would know this.

SPAM! You have posted an identical claim and ignored numerous responses. Eric Doyoubuy is a colossal dipshit - his claims are proven horseshit and people who are incapable of understanding mathematics that junior school children can figure out are just noisy time wasters. Instead of taking the maths and proving it wrong, or offering your own, you just ignore it.

 

Pathetic.

Nothing you have ever typed has offered me an explanation. Nothing you have ever typed was on a subject where I needed an explanation. You are not the spokesperson for "everyone" and you are impossible to reach. You simply have to have some sort of financial interest in this.

You can't even read and understand your own links!

Hint Your horizon line always falls at eye level regardless of where you're looking. For instance, if you are looking down, your eye level remains at the height of your eyes, not down where you are looking.

Whoa there you very deceitful comedian. We establish facts with proper investigation, not the generalisations from a bloody website about drawing stuff!

 

Horizon reference http://www.ringbell.co.uk/info/hdist.htm

Trigonometry reference: http://www.cleavebooks.co.uk/scol/calrtri.htm

 

You say the Earth is flat. Science and people with brains say it gently curves away. Whichever of the two the horizon will ALWAYS and must ALWAYS be below the level of the eye. This is basic, child's play trigonometry.

 

Example 1:

400px-Right_skinny_triangle.svg.png

b = height of person and where their eyes are - I used 6ft.

h = distance to horizon using the global formula for that height = 3 miles = 15840 ft.

Angle theta is 0.217 degree. THAT is how far down the eye needs to look to see the horizon. Nobody has the capacity to discern a difference between that angle and level.

 

Now in your second example:

b = height of 1000 ft.

h = distance to horizon using the global formula for that height = 38.7 miles = 204336 ft.

Angle theta is 0.28 degrees. Again THAT is how far down the eye needs to look to see the horizon. Nobody has the capacity to discern a difference between that angle and level.

 

Let's go really high:

 

b = height of 100,000 ft.

h = distance to horizon using the global formula for that height = 387.9 miles = 2048112 ft.

Angle theta is 2.8 degrees. THAT is how far down the eye needs to look to see the horizon. Is it possible for somebody to know they are looking down at just under 3 degrees of arc? Doubtful but totally irrelevant anyway.

 

The claim thus proved as bollocks!

 

You are owned. Totally. You have one option - ignore this and make loads of noise....because this is simple, school kid stuff and you can't even understand it.

What points within that myopic crap negate the mathematics I just explained to you? The bloke using it is zooming in on a graphic and distorting it on a split screen! I am using mathematics to say exactly what it SHOULD be.

It is using a camera - quite how you can establish an "eye line" when the camera is actually the object determining the plane of sight, is rather dumb.

Of course there is a debunk. I showed you the figures for each of the altitudes in my small spreadsheet. These were calculated using something you don't understand, trigonometry.

It exactly represents reality. It starts with an elevation, the distance to the horizon on a globe, takes a 45 degree segment of the horizon, uses the calculated distance to the horizon and the subsequent distance across given that 45 degree angle. Finally the variance in elevation is worked out against the globe model.  I then double it to give a reasonable 90 degree field of view. 

 

It's mathematics so I can see why you would be confused. The curvature is small right up to 60 miles high where on an average camera is about 10 degrees of variance across the image.

 

The claim thus proved as bollocks!

The phrase is used for the hard of understanding. I am not a shill, I don't work from a script and your audacity in saying something is not scientific is colossal when your whole belief ignores science and entertains buttrinse.

Go check - prove me wrong. Or carry on cowardly avoiding it whilst making noise. I actually did number 2 in the post you just quoted....and I just did it again above.

Eric Doyoubuy is not my enemy. He is an internet nobody guilty of the dumbest brand of dipshittery known to man. I am not the one continually ignoring posts then claiming I answered them but failing to show where.

 

Hey, you aren't him are you?

I read that and posted the math in the side by side comparison that shows reality. The camera is mounted perfectly flat.

Timestamped at 5 miles and what we should all see when we fly, but don't. Which is right to next to the perfect horizontal, eye level horizon that we all do see in reality.

(odd how sometimes my links embed and sometimes not)

 

And there are several links now explaining that horizon and eye level are synonymous.

Hey - you seem to be unable to grasp things no matter how many times you have them told to you. Refraction.

Observer height 8m / Target distance 43,452m / Target size 68m 

 

Just push the refraction measurement into positive about 0.2 and above, watch the object bend into view.

You really are a waste of time dude. Go to 4 mins 8 seconds and see the curvy laser. Plus I don't trust these lying arseholes anyway.

 

bflat-twat.jpg

 

Curvy lasers? Hmmmm whodathunkit. Maybe bflat needs to understand some very simple physics. 

 

It takes a 0.217 degree downward variance of the "straight" laser for it to be pointed down at the horizon. So not only can lasers easily "exceed" the global defined distances with simple refraction, some yoootub muppet "accidentally" points the laser down at the horizon and it skips off like a stone.

Seems bflat has resorted to mega spam in an effort to cover the items on page 1. Notice he hasn't answered any of them.

 

Refraction is the answer to all the silly flatnut experiments he has posted. Refraction - heat and pressure variances across a large expanse of atmosphere.

 

Great site for adjusting the horizon with variable refraction:

And mathematics to show that..

 

a) It is irrelevant horseshit

b) Not true anyway

c) Very little difference between a flat view and a sphere view because the Earth size is almost the same as a flat view. It's big you see. Biggy big big.com🌎

Curvature of the Horizon in High-Altitude Balloon Footage

high-altitude-balloon.jpg

High-altitude balloon footage is often abused by flat-Earthers to show us that the Earth is flat when seen from a high altitude.

We analyzed more than two dozens of footage taken from high-altitude balloons on YouTube, and we can easily conclude the curvature is there and usually easy to spot, including in the cases where flat-Earthers use the video as ‘proof’ of a flat Earth.

 

The majority of the ‘evidence’ are screenshots taken from these videos. The original videos were usually taken using fisheye lenses. In these videos, there are moments where the horizon appears flat, convex and concave. Their M.O. is to cherry-pick moments where the horizon appears flat and present them as the ‘evidence’ of the flat Earth, ignoring the fact it appears concave and convex in many other moments in the video.

To analyze the videos, we try to find a moment where the horizon crosses the center point of the image. In this case, if the horizon is flat, it should appear flat. And conversely, if the horizon is curved, then should appear curved. This method works even if a fisheye was used to take the video. A straight line will always appear straight when it crosses the center, regardless of the lens being used.

We analyzed over two dozens of high-altitude balloon footages on YouTube, and the curvature is there every single time. These videos are definitely not proof of a flat Earth. On the contrary, they are evidence that the Earth is spherical.
