The Sun 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 Sun proves the globe earth, not the flat earth.
Like the moon, the sun does not work on the flat earth model either.
In order for the sun to circle the flat earth in 24 hours, it would have to increase and decrease its speed.
There is no explanation for how the sun would increase and decrease its speed on the flat earth model.
Total solar eclipses cannot be explained on the flat earth model.
The pattern of the upcoming total solar eclipse on 08/21/17 can be explained with the globe Earth, but not on the supposed flat earth model. Given that the sun and moon supposedly travel in a circular orbit 3,000 miles above the flat earth, how would the sun be eclipsed?
The pattern of the upcoming total solar eclipse on 04/08/24 can be explained with the globe Earth, but not on the supposed flat earth model. Note how the path of the eclipse is opposite of the previous one.
This graphic of the sun and moon rotating above the flat earth looks cool, but this is not what we see when you look at the sun and the moon.
Let’s look at the location the sun from the east coast of the United States of America.
In the morning, when the sun is lighting up the east coast, the sun is not due East, but rather it is about 20 degrees North.
At noon, the sun is now directly South. And then at sunset, the sun is not due West, but rather it is about 20 degrees North.
Is that really what we witness? Do we see the sun rise in the Northeast, then move to due South position, and then move to the Northwest by sunset? No!
Let’s look at the location of the moon at sunset to see the relationship.
During the new moon phase, the moon is close to the sun in the western sky at sunset, and we don’t see any light on the moon.
Each day the moon ends up 12.2 degrees further away from the sun.
7 days after the dark conjunction, we see the 1/2 moon directly overhead at sunset.
14 days later the full moon is across the sky from the sunset, 180 degrees away from it.
The flat earth model has no way to show how the sun and moon move so closely together during the dark conjunction phase.
If they are on the same circular path as shown in the flat earth image, they would run into each other.
If they are on separate paths, where is that explanation on this supposed flat earth map?
In this example the sun cannot rise in the Southeast horizon of Sydney during winter, as on the flat earth map it is in the Tropic of Capricorn, which is North of Sydney.
In this example the sun cannot rise in due east of Sydney during spring and fall, as on the flat earth map it is at the Equator, which is North of Sydney.
In this example the sun cannot rise and set at the proper points, as on the flat earth map it is in the Tropic of Cancer, which is far North of Sydney.
It is impossible that a Sun that is 3,000 miles above the flat earth would disappear at the horizon point, and then 90 minutes later, it would have no influence over the land.
That is only possible on a curved earth where the rays of the Sun are blocked out.
Astronomers define the three stages of twilight – civil (less than 6 degrees below the horizon), nautical (between 6 degrees and 12 degrees below the horizon), and astronomical (between 12 degrees and 18 degrees below the horizon) – on the basis of the Sun’s elevation which is the angle that the geometric center of the Sun makes with the horizon.
On flat earth Sun would become smaller based on perspective.
But the sun is far away, and does not become smaller.
How can it be daylight in Ca at 10pm eastern time? If the Sun is 3,000 miles above us, on the flat earth, it would still illuminate the east coast.
Psalms 104:22 The sun arises – they withdraw And lie down in their dens.
Scripture does not say that the Sun will go across the earth, it says it will rise and go down. It can only go down on a globe earth, not a flat earth.
31 down, 14 rise
FE An airplane flying at the same altitude across the sky does not rise or fall, it simply goes from one horizon point over us in a straight line to the end horizon point.
The Sun does not act this way. It clearly rises and sets. It is not going away and getting smaller like the Jet. It stays the same size.
Take picture of sun rising, sun overhead and sun setting, using single focal point camera.
Bible verse say that the sun goes down, not away.
90 minutes after the sun goes over the horizon, it can not be dark on a flat earth.
Flat earth proponents say that the Sun is 3,000 miles above the earth. If that is true, then it is impossible for the Sun to move far enough away during the next 90 minutes for it to be dark.
90 minutes after the sun goes down on the globe earth, the rays are hidden behind the earth, so that it is dark.
Civil twilight occurs when the Sun is less than 6 degrees below the horizon. In the morning, civil twilight begins when the Sun is 6 degrees below the horizon and ends at sunrise. In the evening, it begins at sunset and ends when the Sun reaches 6 degrees below the horizon.
Civil dawn is the moment when the geometric center of the Sun is 6 degrees below the horizon in the morning.
Civil dusk is the moment when the geometrical center of the Sun is 6 degrees below the horizon in the evening.
Astronomical twilight occurs when the Sun is between 12 degrees and 18 degrees below the horizon.
Astronomical dawn is the time when the geometric center of the Sun is at 18 degrees below the horizon. Before this time, the sky is absolutely dark.
Astronomical dusk is the instant when the geographical center of the Sun is at 18 degrees below the horizon. After this point, the sky is no longer illuminated.
A completely dark sky is impossible 90 minutes after the sun disappears over the horizon, on the flat earth model!
Goofy flat earth explanations about the Sun:
Sun hot spot
Sun rays through clouds
IMAGE – Sun distance.
They post images that seem to show clouds behind the Sun, saying that it proves that the Sun in not millions of miles away.
But they claim that the Sun is 3,000 miles away, which would mean that the clouds are more than 3,000 miles away, which is absurd.
The Sun’s changing 90 degree angle proves the globe earth
On December 21st at noon, the sun will be at 90 degrees above the horizon at spot along 23.44 degrees south of the equator or along the line known as the Tropic of Capricorn. This is as far south as that 90 degree position of the sun, at noon, ever goes.
At that point, the sun’s 90 degree mark of solar noon will move north and continue doing so until June 21st. On March 20th, it will cross the equator and on June 21st it will mark its furthest north point along the Tropic of Cancer which is 23.44 degrees north of the equator.
These 90 degree marks are only possible on a globe.
These geographical variations in the sun’s angle above the horizon also account for the major geographical variations in earth’s climates. The arctic and antarctic regions are almost always cold—even in the summer when they get 24 hours of sunlight a day—because the sun’s angle above the horizon is never very high. And the tropics are almost always warm—even though they never get much more than 12 hours of sunlight in a day—because the mid-day sun is always so high in the sky.
The intermediate latitudes, which generally have hot summers and cool or cold winters, are called the temperate zones. The north temperate zone lies between the Tropic of Cancer and the Arctic Circle, while the south temperate zone (where the seasons are reversed) lies between the Tropic of Capricorn and the Antarctic Circle.
Goofy flat earth explanations about the Sun:
The Sun is like a spotlight
Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologiae, First Part of the Second Part, Question 54: The distinction of habits, Article 2, Reply to objection 2. And in First Part, Question 67, Thomas made it clear that he knew the shape of the earth, because he used the word hemisphere, meaning half of a sphere: “Yet as soon as the sun is at the horizon, the whole hemisphere is illuminated from end to end. … Secondly, as to place, for in one hemisphere there was light, in the other darkness. Thirdly, as to time; because there was light for one and darkness for another in the same hemisphere; and this is signified by the words, “He called the light day, and the darkness night.”
Pictures of the Sun clearly show that it cannot act like a spotlight.
Flat-earthers proclaim that the Sun is not millions of miles away, which may be true. They use images like this to supposedly prove it.
The base of the triangle is only a few miles wide, and the other sides are shorter, so that means that the Sun is only a few miles above the Earth, which in turn seem preposterous.
This photo is obviously photoshopped to create a supposed hot spot from the Sun. If that was true, fires would be started all around the world.
