A friend of mine believes that the Earth is flat. I challenged him to prove it by walking off the edge...

San Jacinto) Applying standard refraction 1880 meters of Mt. San Jacinto is hidden and 1422 meters are visible. The buildings visible in the foreground are from the Marina del Rey at a distance of 31 km. Given the observers height, less then 10 cm are hidden of the buildings. https://www.metabunk.org/curve/ Why do these flat-earth-distance-fuckwits never take atmospheric refraction into account? Is it on purpose, to deliberately deceive the watchers, or is it stupidity? [/quote] The mountains should not be visible, if the curve were true (your having a functional disconnect here). But they are, which means, there is no curve. Refraction or not, it would not cause the entire mountain range that would be behind a curve to magically appear over the horizon. Refraction/mirages do not work that way at all. The only thing visible at that camera altitude if we were on a globe, would be a section of the top of the mountains - but instead we can clearly see it way more than just the peak, ... [/quote] I gave you the link to a correct calculator for calculating what part of an object is hidden and what is visible: https://www.metabunk.org/curve/ Only if atmospheric refraction is [b]not[/b] taken into account, only a small part of the mountain should be visible. Unfortunately, for the flattards, atmospheric refraction is real - and applying standard refraction, from the 3302 meter high mountain 1880 meters are hidden and 1422 meters are visible. And, isn't it funny, that it fits with the numbers (in feet) given in the video at 5:00. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxLwaaU1aNk (I hope you can convert meters into feet.) [quote:Doctor Manhattan:MV80MTAxMjc2Xzc0NTIxNDQ3XzUzMjBGOUVB] ... some of it hidden obviously because of distance and where the sky meets the land horizon line, but at that distance its called convergence and the image gets so tiny it gets compressed visually but nothing drastic like a mirage, and it certainly would not magically lift a mountain over the horizon because were using infared. [/quote] Does that gibberish make any sense? No. [quote:Doctor Manhattan:MV80MTAxMjc2Xzc0NTIxNDQ3XzUzMjBGOUVB] I don't get why so many refuse to see that, the end result is better anyway and more logical, God is real. Would you rather God not be real and us a random speck like they want to sell you, because the price ain't worth it. [/quote] So your god can only create a pizza earth? My God can create a complete universe from a single, tiny point. A universe that develops itself into galaxies, stars, planets, .... You should feel intense shame that you diminish God by claiming, he can only create a pizza-earth. . [/quote] Your mocking shit you don't understand at all. "a pizza earth" Guess what, that "pizza earth" is providing everything right now, its your existence, so you can mock all you want. Your god is nothing but CGI and AI, and the elite controlling pawns like you. If fine dude, believe the earth is round, because they tell you, ignore reality. [/quote]
