You don't need anything more than logic to know that when you are standing on the beach in st Ives in Cornwall you can not see Ireland and you can not see America.

You can't even see Wales, and Wales is way closer

And the reason that you can not see them is because there is this thing called the horizon that gets in the way.

And, if you look really really carefully, you will be able to detect that there is a curvature to the horizon - though it is only very slight - given that the horizon at sea level is just over three miles away, and a 6 mile wide vista presents an arc of less than one degree (360 degrees /25,000 circumference = 0.0144) 0.0144 x 6 [max viewable distance from left to right] = 0.0864 = less than 1 degree from any given point over the entire horizon

There's the math for you x

And if you work with those figures (0.0144 degree's per mile) - at sea level and looking at the horizon puts you slightly higher than the horizon as you are observing a gradual drop to (@ 0.0144 x 3.1 miles) 0.045 degrees from a flat plane...... This is how a globe earth looks.

On a flat plane earth, the horizon is not at 3.1 miles distant - viability would only be obscured by atmospherics given that a flat plane doesn't present any horizon..... And yet (quell surprise) you can clearly see the horizon. On a flat plane earth, while standing on that same beach in st Ives, Cornwall: Ireland, Wales and America would be visible....

Ah yes, The Ice Wall Police. Posted every few miles all around the circumference to make sure no one gets near!

Which brings up the circumference of this ice wall. Any ideas? 24,000 miles? Surely much more than that - it could be calculated by simple maths...

Anyway, so how many Ice Wall Police will be needed? A few thousand at least. Anyone know any? Maybe they're genetically engineered so don't come from ordinary society, neatly side-stepping the problem. (But using the old trick of inventing one conspiracy to support another.)

So come on Flatards, please don't be shy, answer the questions!
Well until flat tards can supply us with an accurate size of the flat earth, we can guestimate the diameter of the flat disc using the flat tard map, as 'generally accepted by flat tards' (according to flat tard society)

South America:
Vertical Length: From Cartagena, Colombia, south to Ushuaia, Argentina: 4,443 miles (7,149 km) (see map)

North America:
Vertical Length: From Barrow, Alaska, directly southeast to Panama City, Panama: 5,347 miles (8,605 km) (see map)

These measurements: 5,347 + 4,443 = 9790 miles represent a rough measurement from the Northern or Central most point of FE to the furthest south point in land mass of American continent. Which represent the most reliable or in this case usable measurements to be starting with.

Flat tard map (above) shows the central hub of the North pole (roughly) the same distance from Ushuaia (Argentina) as Alaska is from Ushuaia - and gives us a usable figure to start with.

With an approx minimum radius of 9790 miles - that can be rounded up to 10,000 miles, the Flat Earth has a minimum diameter of 20,000 miles.

Again, using flat tards map, we can see that the Antarctic wall is approx 1 x latitude line further South from Argentina. South America itself is almost 5 latitude lines long.... From that we can guestimate that the Antarctic wall is approx 1/5 4,443 miles = 886 miles away from the southern most point of South America.

So we can add 1700 miles to the diameter of 20,000.

21,700 miles diameter.

Circumference = C = pi D

= 3.141 x 21,700 = 68,159 miles

For people who can't do maths (including me lol)

https://www.omnicalculator.com/math/circumference

Approx length of Antarctica's coastline on a flat tard model is 68,000 miles long

Which is 7.5 (ish) x the length of North and South America.

World by map has Antarctica's coastline @ 17,968 km or 11,165 miles.

^ wow

i revise my estimate of how long it might take to sail round

Flat tard Antarctica has a coastline 6x as long as the tracked and reported globe earth model

And, interestingly, flat tard earth diameter is roughly 1/5 less than the globe earth circumference 21,000 miles as opposed to 25,000 miles - if we include the ice mass size of Antarctica, FE diameter and globe earth circumference would be about the same

There must be some better minds than mine who can rip the maths of that apart lol

All very well to describe the math of the globe. That was not the question.
The question was how do we use trigonometry to get the distance to the sun?
Ive already suggested in an earlier post that the flateathers should contemplate why we have an horizon.
But seens trigonometry can be used to dispel the flatearthers 3000 miles to the sun. The same method diagrams and all should be used to show the correct distance on the spherical earth we are living on.

Does a search engine baffle you? This shit was done millennia ago!

Bear in mind that researchers and sea faring folks have sailed ships around Antarctica, and it's coastline has been tracked and no-doubt peer reviewed and recorded, no doubt meticulously, to be 11,000 miles long....

And yet flat tards insist that the Antarctic wall rings the flat earth - which can be shown to be 68,000 miles.

So, why have the explorers who sail the southern ocean never realised that the Antarctic region has a 6x longer coastline than it actually does?

Must be some secret tech that the Nazi wall police who live in the Antarctic use

The ice wall police are the Nazi's who have alien tech and live in alien bases on the Antarctic, silly

Ah yeah, I forgot about the alien Antarctic Nazi tech...

Anyway, where have all the Forum Flatties gone in this thread? There's only one as far as I can see and that's DebonAir who went all cross in post #25, once confronted with some evidence. Why haven't they regrouped to see us 'Globalists' off?

Maybe they've all seen sense and gone away - although that's vanishingly unlikely as 'sense' and 'flat earth' don't really go together do they?

The Antarctic is like a conspiracy theorists wet dream....
1. It surrounds the flat earth and stops the sea falling off.
2. It is where the Nazi's went - and where they are waiting in their alien bases.
3. It is the only place on Earth where you can see Nibiru.
4. There is a secret base there (a different one to the alien ones) that observes deep space.
5. It keeps going on holiday to the North Pole.
6. No one can go there - except the Nazi's.
7. Prince Harry went there to talk to the Lizardians.
8. But Prince Harry is a Nazi, so he is allowed in any case....

And that isn't even going to the Antarctic pyramids, the liquid lake and the huge meteorite

I honestly think it's time for the believers in flat earth to show some proof. They claim any photos that disprove flat earth are CGI or faked in other ways, but they are in a unique position because they themselves can travel to Antarctica, and that way provide proof of the claims they make.
It's not often we have opportunities like that when it comes to conspiracy theories. The fact that they don't do it I assume is because there is a little tiny voice of reason even in the head's of flattards. Don't spoil the fun it says.

According to flattards all the stars and planets are just dot's of light on a dome. So the distance to Venus is irrelevant no?

Have the Flattards ever bounced anything of this dome? You know, to prove that it's real...? I'm sure I can come up with some engineering suggestions, but I'm kind of surprised none on them have come up with their own experimental proof...

To make experiments require a level of IQ that these people do not have so I am not really surprised.

Also I honestly don't think they are really interested in getting evidence. Like I wrote before it's fairly simple to test this theory. It's sort of like that guy who said it was impossible to run a marathon ( in a thread here on dif) but he had no interest in actually finding out even though it would have been super easy.

Major problem with the magic dome.....telescopes enlarge objects. If they are very far away like Venus, the actual enlargement is very small. If Venus is close and on the magic dome, the enlargement, as with all the stars, would be massive. That is really a completely unavoidable show stopper for flatnuttery. There is also ZERO enlargement on any of the stars.

But all academic, Venus can't be on the magic dome.....

So lets get this right.
If I was to go out and buy a telescope expecting to see the stars at least magnified by a factor of two rather than viewed with the naked eye. I would be wasting my time as telescopes dont work on stars?

There are some amateur rocket videos where the rockets suddenly stops, have you not seen it?
