I'm sorry to tell you that LHP is right: you don't get it. May be this image will help: [link to i813.photobucket.com (secure)]

Btw.: LHP is not a flattard.
 Quoting: Hydra

Put a C opposite of B.

I can see both, straight line between them, but they can’t see each other?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74189820

B and C each have their own horizon with the same size/radius A has.
Explain, why C should see B - or vice versa.

And btw.: A can't see B. Your assumption that A can see B just shows that you still don't get it.
 Quoting: Hydra

A can’t see B or C but there’s no visible curve between them

Glad your drawing can clear that up

Yes, I see what you’re trying to convey

It’s just more magic and drawings that don’t equate to reality

All of these invisible curves.

It’s just heliocentrists bastardizing perspective. A sphere has no straight lines

Sorry to tell you that you (up to now) fail miserable.

Please verify you're human:
