No, you don't understand it. And the spin has nothing to do with how it appears. But thanks for the humor!

Okay, you’re the one who believes in flat spheres. Good luck buddy! You’re spinning right now but not like the way you’re trying to promote.

Why don’t you use a computer program and show us how a sphere horizon looks?

Or do you want me to?

trying to put words in my mouth now? Hilarious!

Please show us all how you think it should look. I could use a laugh.
 Quoting: LHP598

How I think it should look? It’s a sphere or spheroid, not how I think it should look.

You’re the idiot using a 2-D shape trying to describe how a 3-d horizon should appear.

It’s flat. A sphere would be easily measure on the horizon or you’re not on a sphere. There are no straight lines on a sphere. Everything falls away from the point you stand on. This is basic physics.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74189820

So where is the computer program then?

Yes, everything does fall away from the point you stand on. And from that point, in every direction, the horizon is at the same distance. So that horizon falls away the same amount in every direction. Why should it curve again? If everything is falling away the same amount, how is any part lower than another to show a curve?

Thanks for the humor!
