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.
They dismiss science and mathematics, and rely solely on their perspective.
Flat earthers teach about perspective to justify the flat earth, but they ignore that the sun does not shrink in size as it moves away from us, like it should if the earth is flat. It stays the same size from when it rises, to when it’s overhead, to when it sets; which proves that it’s not close to the earth; and that the earth is curved.
The video provides a graphical visualization which proves that the sun and moon can’t work properly on the flat earth model.
The water in a water bottle proves that the horizon does not rise up to eye level.
The view of the Isles of Man proves the curvature of the earth.
On the West coast of England, in the Lake District, is the village of St. Bees. From here, on a clear day, you can look out across the ocean and see the Isle of Man, approximately 50 kilometres away.
Just to the north-west of the village is a coastal walk up a hill, and from there it is possible to view the Isle of Man at many different elevations as you climb to the summit. The path rises to about 62 metres above sea level, and as you ascend something interesting can be observed.
You’ll begin to notice that, at low elevation, much of the Isle of Man is obscured by the curve of the Earth, but as you steadily climb higher, the obstruction caused by the curve diminishes, and more of the island comes into view.
Animating a sequence of photographs, taken from the walk, clearly demonstrates how the curvature of the Earth affects the visibility of the Isle of Man at various elevations.
A professional airline pilot shows the sunset at 45,000 ft confirms that the Horizon drops.
You can see that the downward angle is 3.7 degrees. If the Theodolite app was pointing up, so that it’s at 0 degrees tilt, then the cross hairs would be pointing to the sky above the horizon, at the red horizontal line. So the horizon does not rise up to meet our eye!
To see how large the globe earth, compare a 45 degree slice to a 1 degree slice.
The Earth is so big, that looking straight out makes the earth seem flat; but 1 arc degree, which spans 69 miles, is still curved.
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.
To accurately look out to the Horizontal Line, and measure the Earth, you need a theodolite, which is what many thousands of people used to map out the globe earth.
A theodolite is a precision instrument for measuring angles in the horizontal and vertical planes.
When the telescope is pointed at a target object, the angle of each of these axes can be measured with great precision, typically to seconds of arc.
You can measure the difference between the Horizontal Line that projects straight out, at 90 degree angle to the Earth; and the Horizon Line, which is seen when you look down slightly.
Surveyor’s instrument confirms the Horizon does NOT rise to eye level.
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.
Here’s a link to an advanced earth curvature calculator:
Here’s a link to a more basic earth curvature calculator:
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.
Flat earthers say that water doesn’t curve around the globe earth, but this video proves that wrong.
We can see that the electric towers going across Lake Pontchartrain, which are all designed to be at the same height above water, are indeed curving over the Lake.
Lake Pontchartrain proves that the earth is curved, and that water curves around the globe earth.
This ‘Soundly Proving the Curvature of the Earth at Lake Pontchartrain‘ page provides much more proof, that the earth and water are curving.
