The Moon Proves The Flat Earth Deception
This website exposes the flat earth deception and proves that the earth is globe shaped.
This page shows proves that the moon proves the globe earth, not the flat earth.
Flat earthers push aside proofs that the flat earth model doesn’t work, by claiming that the moon illuminates itself.
UPDATE: During the past few weeks ago after the new moon, I observed the moon every night to see where it was at in the sky in relationship to the setting sun. The first day the crescent moon was seen in the West, near the sun at sunset. And every evening since then, then moon was located about 12 degrees East of where it was the previous night.
On the 7th day it was a 1/2 moon that was located directly above, at 90 degrees to the Earth. And then on the 14th day after the new moon, it was a full moon rising in the east, 180 degrees across of the setting sun.
The relationship is obvious! As the moons orbit causes it to move further East away from the Sun, we see more of the side of the moon that is illuminated; creating the transition from crescent moon to full moon. This is an absolute proof that the Sun illuminates the moon!
They cite Genesis 1:15-18, to proclaim that Scripture says that the moon is a light, just like the son.
But Scripture does not say that! The Hebrew word for ‘light’ simply points to a luminous body. It does not say that it provides its own illumination.
The Hebrew word for light is ma’owr from 215; properly, a luminous body or luminary, i.e. (abstractly) light (as an element): figuratively, brightness, i.e.cheerfulness; specifically, a chandelier:—bright, light.
215 ‘owr = a primitive root; to be (causative, make) luminous (literally and metaphorically):—X break of day, glorious, kindle, (be, en-, give, show) light (-en, -ened), set on fire, shine.
Websters 1818 Dictionary, which is based on the King James Bible, defines luminary as:
1. Any body that gives light, but chiefly one of the celestial orbs. The sun is the principal luminary in our system. the stars are inferior luminaries.
If the stars, which don’t produce their own light, are luminaries; then the moon can be too.
So Genesis 1:15-18 proves nothing, and the physical evidence makes it obvious that the sun does illuminate the moon.
Hal Hilton provided this proof about the full moon appearing upside down to people in South America, which is not possible on the flat earth.
When standing and viewing the full moon from Alberta Canada, the well defined and unique *face* of the moon itself is easily seen and configured.
If the earth is a globe, one would expect to see the same full moon with the same EXACT unique features…however, it would be viewed, when standing upright in Santiago Chile with those same features upside down.
And that is PRECISELY what is easily observed! Here are two, fully verified, full moon photographs from two separate locations. One from Alberta Canada with the Alberta Legislature Building as a reference source, which is 53 degrees North of the Equator.
And one from Santiago Chile with the fully unique Virgin of the Assumption statue located at the Cathedral Church of the Virgin of the Assumption which is 33 degrees South of the Equator.
If the FE model, as promoted with a moon rotation motion over the equator of the FE, the person seeing the moon from Alberta Canada would see one side of the moon…and another person seeing that same moon from Santiago Chile would see the BACK SIDE of the moon…not the 180 degree view of the same side of the moon as seen from Canada.
This is really simple to understand. We’ll use a full moon over the continent of Australia as an example.
On October 16, 2016 the full moon rose at 7:13 pm, and it set at 6:57 am on October 17. So the moon would be visible over Australia during that time, as it tracks across the sky.
Keep in mind how the moon supposedly travels around the flat earth, in a large circle overhead.
First of all, the only way to see the fully illuminated moon rise East of Australia is to have the Sun directly opposite of it in the West. It can’t be across the Earth or at any other angle, as that would not let Australians see the fully illuminated side.
3 hours after moonrise, it should still be on the East side of the sky, but on the flat earth model it would already be on the West side of Australia.
6 hours after it rose, it should be directly overhead, but instead on the flat earth map, it’s 1/4 of the way around the earth, and not visible from Australia.
Even if it was visible, since the Sun is ahead of it, then the fully illuminated side of the moon would no longer be facing Australia.
9 hours after it rose in the East it should be in the Western part of the Australian sky; but on the flat earth it is approaching Africa, where Australians cannot see it.
12 hours after it rose in the East it should be setting in the West; but on the flat earth it is on the opposite side of the earth, where Australians cannot see it.
So the concept of the flat earth moon rotating above in a circle seems neat, but simple logic shows that it does not work in the real world.
Some flat-earthers proclaim that the moon is self-illuminated, but they cannot explain how it illuminates the different phases, such as the crescent moon.
This video explains the simplicity of the sun-moon-earth relationship, which gives us the different phases of the moon.
Some flat-earthers proclaim that the moon is not real, but the Scriptures disagree.
He made the moon for appointed times; The sun knows its going down. Psalm 104:19
One of the oldest proofs of the Earth’s shape, however, can be seen from the ground and occurs during every lunar eclipse. The geometry of a lunar eclipse has been known since ancient Greece.
When a full Moon occurs in the plane of Earth’s orbit, the Moon slowly moves through Earth’s shadow. Every time that shadow is seen, its edge is round. Once again, the only solid that always projects a round shadow is a sphere.

The appearance of the crescent moon and the celestial bodies in the skies, is opposite for people in the northern and southern hemispheres. That would not be possible on a flat earth.
They believe that NASA is faking every image of earth, is to pretend that they are the only source of images of the earth. That means that every weatherperson showing storms or hurricanes, with a view from satellite which shows the globe earth, is all faked.

Goofy flat earth explanations about the Moon:
Flat earthers proclaim that the moon isn’t globe-shaped, but a flat disc.
One can prove that the moon is globe-shaped, as the craters on the moon are all circular. But around the edge, the craters appear elliptical, which proves that the surface is curving.
They claim that it’s impossible for people in Australia and Florida to see the moon at the same time on the globe earth. But the opposite is true. They claim that the Sun only illuminates one part of the flat earth, so it can be dark on the other side. The same would be true of the moon, which would not be seen all around the flat earth.
Australia and Florida are not completely opposite each other on the globe, so if the moon is high above them somewhere in between them, both locations would be able to see it, and their orientation would be opposite, as you can see on this photo.
This image implies that a simultaneous moon sightings are not possible on a globe, but the irony is that it would not be possible on the flat earth either.
They claim that the Sun only illuminates one part of the flat earth, so it can be dark on the other side. The same would be true of the moon, which would not be seen all around the flat earth. Are we supposed to believe that people in Australia and South America, which are on opposites sides of the supposed flat earth, are able to see the moon at the same time?
All that said, where is the proof that people in all of those cities actually saw the moon at the same time?
Flat earthers say that the moon is transparent, that you can see through the non-illuminated part of the moon.
This is just goofy. Trusting your eyes about something that is so distant, is a formula for being deceived.
Flat earthers say that the moon is a flat disk.
The curve that is created from the illumination of the sun proves that it is in fact a ball.
