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

LHP, thinks he’s so advanced that we can’t conceptualize what he’s saying . He thinks his 360 degree view should be flat on the horizon on a SPHERE!!!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74189820

I said the horizon would appear flat. There is a difference.

I agree it would be on a plane. But this asshole thinks that our view from 2m, which can see about 4 mi of horizon, would be a level one on a land mass that falls off 8” per mile ^2
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74189820

See post above. If every point on the horizon has fallen off the same amount, where are you seeing a curve left to right?

What a fool. This same calculation he would use to show ships falling offf the edge and out of view

Yet, 2 ships at the opposite end of this horizon are fine and can see each other because it’s a flat circle.

What a fucking clown acting as an authority on this subject

And you prove only that you don't understand it.

Still waiting on that computer program.
 Quoting: LHP598

Wow, so we don’t see a left to right curve, just the one that falls off in front of us? What a special sphere and perspective you’ve created!

LHP world - it may look flat but it’s really a ball and it’s spinning too, even though you can’t feel it. Just trust him!

You would be able to measure earth curve on a horizon

There is no denying it. No tricks, nothing. It would be self evident

We don’t live on a ball. There are no straight lines on a ball.
