This bloke explains it perfectly:

I have been looking at this same thing. The 8 inches per mile squared that flat Earthers use to predict how much drop we should expect seems very accurate up until a certain point. I have worked out some examples from what the math actually says and have compared that with the 8 inches/mi^2.

The first mile is identical. The drop will be 8 inches or .67 (.666?) feet.

At 10 miles, we start to see a slight difference. The actual math shows a drop of 800.2 inches and the 8 inch formula shows a drop of 800.2 inches.

At 100 miles, the difference is still a relatively small 32.97 (33?) inches.

At 200 miles, the difference is still a relatively small 23.77 feet.

At 300 miles, the difference is still a relatively small 101.56 feet, but as we can see, becoming more substantial.

At 500 miles, it is off by 712 feet.

At 1000 miles, we get a difference of 11,158 feet, or about 2 miles here.

I also noticed, that as the distances increase, the flat Earthers are actually short-changing themselves by using that formula, as the actual math proves a greater drop.

The last few days have been crazy with this stuff, but actually quite interesting. Hope that made sense.

My maths is shit, so just a question I'd like to ask you. Regarding what Mr. Hancock says here (time code below):

If his calculations are right, the Ancient Egyptians must have also know the Earth wasn't flat? It's not a flat earth video, but I just wanted to know if he's on the right track with those calculations.

Cheers.

It's a bit of old cobblers. He's plucked figures from somewhere and kind of got them to work. There is no way they could know either of those two measurements.

It does, but there are no distances that this matters to visible observation - no short change of any note effectively. It's accurate enough for all human visibility statements.

Thanks for that. I know the Ancient Greeks figured it out about (correct me if I'm wrong) 5th century BC. But I was just wondering if it's possible that - given the exchanges between the ancient cultures - that others actually figured it out before the Greeks. If so, that would be pretty cool.

So the Great Pyramid scaled up in size.....fitting EXACTLY into one half of the Globe is just a coincidence ?
Hmmmm....

Does it? Why that crazy figure he uses. I'll address it later.

I'm a Leyline researcher and an astral visionary, believe one of the few left standing  This is just one example of alignments and measurements that I took. I have uncovered loads of things using Google Earth to do this, so much so that I can now see and travel down them. These theories don't work if the planet is flat.

I know where this has come from. There's a level in the core of the Earth where the substrate of Entire Globe has been taped onto a round table, the Round Table of the Kingdom of Camelot. It shows European half of the surface of the globe on the top of the table whilst the rest is underneath on the bottom and the colours are extremely vibrant and compressed. It's small enough for a discerning group of men to gather around it and fuck about with it.

It's a half lie/half truth situation. I believe it was released onto the filth (that's us) to make us look stupid to the rest of the world, just as conspiracy theorists were clinching unknown truths about the planet.

I've flown from London to Australia to Los Angeles back to London in two weeks and at best that makes it a cylinder which is not considered as a theory.

It's Magnetic Earth on The Round Table. That's why you lot can't stop talking about. It's pulling you all in.

I would love to meet him one day. I've got four or five of his books and watch his videos wherever I can find them. I find all this stuff fascinating.

As long as you scale up all the dimensions the same......why does it matter what scale ?

Yeah yeah I hear many of you say, this forum needs another flat Earth thread like a hole in the head. I agree. This isn't one. This is a collection of responses that have been systematically buried and consistently ignored by people claiming the Earth is flat. To me, given the truly astonishing amount of evidence saying it is a sphere that is like believing in fairies in your living room.This thread targets those members who may be in a little doubt from some of the videos that get put up on youtube. But, in this case none of it gets buried because it's all on page 1.

Here is a short and by no means concise list:

• The Sun sets without any size change and that is impossible in itself. The vanishing point is named thus!
• The Sun's motion through the sky is the same at every angle, location and time. It NEVER varies - 15 degrees of angular distance per hour.
• On any map of the flat earth, the two tropic circles HAVE to be different circumferences - the Sun HAS to increase speed for the larger one!! It provably does not differ in speed anywhere, any time.
• There has been not one iota of scientific measurement that corresponds to a flat earth, including sudden speed changes from the Sun.
• The Moon is inverted in the Southern Hemisphere.
• At a range of distances starting with the unfeasible Everest height for the Sun - the horizon is a ridiculous distance away.
• ANYONE can take an image through a quality telescope of Mars/Jupiter etc. and see them rotating.
• ANYONE can take an image through a filter and see the Sun rotating.
• Lunar eclipses occur where the Earth moves across the Sun's path to the Moon.
• There are so many problems with long haul flight distances on the common flat earth map - it is quite absurd.
• Australia on the regulation flat earth map is 5,000 miles across!!
• Star fields rotate in opposite directions by hemisphere.
• Gravity  - there is no offer of a workable counter explanation.
• Sea tides.
• There is no mechanism where the Sun is able to illuminate half a disc. It is an absurd magic spotlight needed to do this.
• It is impossible for anything including the Sun and Moon to drop below eye level when they are always above it.
• There are thousands of orbiting satellites. Including the ISS.
• There are hundreds of thousands of images taken in space over the decades.
• There is live footage from the ISS. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zY4UJceEaVg / https://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/iss_ustream.html
• Satellite TV dishes receiving data from a point out in space.

This list could go on for pages and pages. Some of the answers given by flat earthers to these are amongst the most absurd things written on the internet.

Let me explain something here. The polar diameter and the circumference are tied together by pi. At best the ancients had figured out that a circle circumference is 3.142 times the size of the diameter.

What are you seeing that I am missing?

3.142, lol. You don't really know much at all do you ?

Pi has not yet been defined. It grows exponentially bigger and at the same time smaller  daily.

A smart guy like you should understand that.

Pi has most certainly been defined and to various numbers of decimal places. Thank you for your useless "correction" which for the purposes of typing in two measurements of Earth won't be accurate to that level anyway.

Just now, MarcusOmouse said:

No really it doesn't. It is a constant where occasional somebody with too much time on their hands attempts to define it to more decimal places. It's still rounded up to 3.142 if using 3 decimal places

You got  the actual number then ? LOL.

Thats called  science. Give me the latest figure.

Try making your request a little clearer. Would you like me to quote pi to more decimal places? It doesn't get bigger or smaller daily and 3 decimal places is accurate enough.

As someone who doubtlessly believes in definitive science, surely you can give me the absolutely confirmed number.

I wont hold my breath.

Dare I also suggest that this relates to this issue ?

Pi is a ratio that has no fixed division. It has an infinite number of decimal places.
