Perspective Proves The Flat Earth Deception
This website exposes the flat earth deception and proves that the earth is globe shaped.
One of the primary deceptions of the flat earth theory is that it is based on a person’s perspective. They say that is the only way to know the truth.
But a person’s perspective on the large earth, in a large galaxy, is misleading. The eyes can only see so wide of a landscape, so it’s not able to detect a curve on so short of a distance.
If you’re standing on a flat area and you can see about three miles across and only so wide, the earth is big enough that you’re not going to see the curvature.
One of the biggest perspective problems is that flat earthers are applying the 8″ per mile earth curvature formula to wrong line.
Let’s apply this to a picture to see the difference between the level line and the horizon line.
The primary question is, how can we trust any image from flat-earthers, as they have an agenda and are biased. For all we know it’s been photo-shopped to remove the curve. That aside, in this image they make it seem like our perspective on a ball earth cannot ever seem flat.
A large sphere appears flat over short distances. Most images that flat earthers share are only a few miles wide, so it’s hard to discern the curve.
They show images of the Sun which make it seem closer but which mislead on the perspective.
This image tries to imply that since the horizontal distance is only a few miles, then the Sun must only be a few miles away. First of all, it that is true, then that does not line up with their teaching that the Sun is 3,000 miles away. Secondly, and more importantly, it is not taking into consideration how far away the Sun is in the background.
Here’s another image that gives a false perspective explanation. Looking at the triangle on the left, the bottom line is only a few miles wide, which means that the Sun would only be a few miles up in the sky.
Once again, they prove that they don’t understand geometry either, as if the Sun were the same distance from the earth as the angles of the rays, then it would only be a few miles away; instead of the 3,000 miles which they proclaim.
But these crepuscular rays look just like the furrows on a plowed field. The lines look like they angle toward a convergence point; but we know that the lines are straight, and all end at different points.
In this image they make the ball earth so small, that it makes it seem like the plane is always having to curve. Obviously the earth is not that small, as the ball earth appears relatively flat on the airplanes gyroscope and the pilots visual horizon.
A gyroscope indicates the orientation of the plane to the earth’s surface, not to a straight line in space. A plane’s natural tendency is to point down to the ground, so the control’s keep it level in its relationship to the earth.
So to maintain an altitude of 10,000 feet above the earth’s surface, the plane is constantly adjusting to keep its nose up; all the while the gyroscope is reading level. The adjustment for the curve is built in.
They proclaim that the tilt of the earth makes no sense in space.
Scientists are not saying that the earth is tilted as compared to space, rather that it is tilted in its orientation to the Sun, which affects the areas that the Sun strikes.
They proclaim that water the flows North on a globe earth is going uphill.
This explanation is ridiculous! Water flows to the lowest level. The Nile starts at high altitudes and flows downwards to sea level.
