Evidence for a flat earth?


It is often possible to see the Chicago skyline from sea-level 60 miles away across Lake Michigan. In 2015 after photographer Joshua Nowicki photographed this phenomenon several news channels quickly claimed his picture to be a “superior mirage,” an atmospheric anomaly caused by temperature inversion. While these certainly do occur, the skyline in question was facing right-side up and clearly seen unlike a hazy illusory mirage, and on a ball-Earth 25,000 miles in circumference should be 2,400 feet below the horizon.

this shot is close to a 100 miles away. Makes you wonder how the weatherman would explain this one without using the mirage excuse.

lol I thought someone was going to be ingenious and use the hologram excuse. But alas, disappointment sets in when someone tries and use basically a common optical illusion, specifically a mirage, to explain the whole world. sad How sad, and unimaginative.

I would love to hear the "experts" excuse when there is NO water involved:

The State of Liberty in New York stands 326 feet above sea level and on a clear day can be seen as far as 60 miles away. if the earth was a globe, that would put Lady Liberty at an impossible 2,074 feet below the horizon!

Wait...you're not REALLY subscribing to the flat earth theory, are you?

I assumed that you were simply posting the info.

Yes I am. The lack or curvature anywhere, test after test prove that we do not live on a globe. We've been brainwashed since birth to believe in a global planet. Another red flag is the horizon is always at eye level. Even on top of Mount Everest, on a plane, the horizon always rises to eye level, that wouldn't happen on a global earth. If the globe is spinning at 1000mph, airline travel proves that is not the case, planes traveling east bound going at 500mph would never reach their destination lol. I can go on and on...the global earth makes NO sense. We've been lied to. Imagine that??

I assume you've not travelled much? Never been on a plane at 39thousand feet and seen the curvature. Never flown on a round the world ticket in the same direction and ended up back home.

Ok, let's roll with it. What's the reason for this incredibly elaborate lie?
And how is it executed? Are all the long haul airline pilots and shipping captiains in on the lie? How would that work? And lastly are you trying to trump every other idiot that's come before you on this site or is it just attention seeking?

Why can't the southern cross be seen from the so called "northern hemisphere"? A flat earth would neccessetate the same night sky. No? I'm in New Zealand. When I speak to my mum in London late at night and she says it's sunny outside where she is. How does that work? Or is she in on the conspiracy. Or am I? And New Zealand doesn't even exist. It's pretty simple stuff. You have thought about this stuff before you've brought these concerns here yes?

I've only traveled inside the states..never outside the US.

You talk about curvature from a plane, could it be it's the shape of the windows..hmm? You may wanna look in to that because from test after test there is no curvature anywhere on the earth.

I've never flown the world but I don't think it would be hard to fly across the world and if the passengers are taught it's a globe, why would they think otherwise?

The reason for the global earth hoax? Well number 1, if you follow the money...can you imagine what NASA's budget is per year??? I'm guessing 80-90 Billion? Number 2, to control the population you need to keep information from them to control them. Number 3, if we are NOT the center of the universe, then that makes us just 1 of BILLION AND BILLIONS of possible planets out there so we're no special at all, we're just a spec in the universe, kinda downplays the existence of God I say.


As for the pilots, I don't know what their thinking is on all this, i havent' taken a survey, but for the global earth to be true, a pilot would have to continuously keep going up with his plane or else he's gonna find himself out in the middle of nowhere..because remember...the globe we live on is spinning around its axis at 1,000 miles per hour, revolving around the sun at 67,000 miles per hour, while the solar system rotates around the Mily Way galaxy at 500,000 miles per hour, and the Milky Way speeds through the expanding universe at over 670,000,000 miles per hour, yet NO ONE in history has ever felt a thing! LOL yeah you just keep telling yourself that.

All this motion going on in the universe but the stars are still perfectly situated where they've always been. Uh huh...right!

Am I tyring to trump ever idiot before me?? Resorting to name calling I see.

Hope you get back to me, i would love to show give you examples of lighthouses around the world where the light is 182 feet high but can be seen from 42 miles out!!! At that distance, the lighthouse should fall 996 feet below line of sight!!! What does that tell us? Tells us there is definately no curvature to be found anywhere on the earth.

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.

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.

No answer to the fact that it's daytime in London when it's nighttime in New Zealand though? How do the conspirators do that with the sun when the earth if flat? Why is the night sky hemisphere specific. Focus man, focus. If you want to do this, do it properly and don't ignore blatant debunking evidence for you're idiotic assertion.

How did I keep flying west from London, go over the states, the pacific and end up in New Zealand then fly again to the west and end up over Asia and back in
London? Do all kids who want to be pilots, train and then get told about the conspiracy and all the hundreds of thousands of them just go along with until the day they die? Your dumb arse belief raised these questions. It's incredible that they don't occur to you. But perhaps more imporantly. Why? All that effort to pretend the earth is a sphere. Why?

If Earth were a ball 25,000 miles in circumference as NASA and modern astronomy claim, spherical trigonometry dictates the surface of all standing water must curve downward an easily measurable 8 inches per mile multiplied by the square of the distance. This means along a 6 mile channel of standing water, the Earth would dip 6 feet on either end from the central peak. Every time such experiments have been conducted, however, standing water has proven to be perfectly level.

The horizon gets further away the higher you are obviously. Come on, focus so until your at very high altitude that difference is imperceptible. You can just see more of it. Now. My questions please.

Surveyors, engineers and architects are never required to factor the supposed curvature of the Earth into their projects. Canals, railways, bridges and tunnels for example are always cut and laid horizontally, often over hundreds of miles without any allowance for curvature.

Ahh yes the long ago debunked Bedford Level experiment but nice work repeating it and sounding all smart and mathsy even though.

So hang on. I answer your question and then re ask mine which you ignore again and just ask me something else and then accuse me of dodging the question. A typical tactic of someone who is drowning in their own stupidity. You're just repeating stuff you've read on conspiracy sites but when quizzed off piste you can't even contemplate how to respond. Grow up and don't be such a dunce. Or answer my questions. You won't because my points are game over. The world is round now deal with it.

By the way. I assume it's dark where you are or will be in a few hours. Well I'm in Thailand in the beach. The Suns has been up for 2 hours. How the fuck
Is that possible based on your earth model numb nuts?

Yep. Really no excuse for the level of cognitive disability required to believe such nonsense today with all that acquired knowledge at our fingertips 24/7.
