River prove we live on a ball.


You see rivers sometimes run uphill.

That's why Dams do not work well.

All standing water is convex.


People go out and measure the curve in the water. It's so dam cool.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 64698495



The Nile is 30 percent of the Earths diameter and runs 363 miles up hill before it can run down hill. When the water goes on the down hill side it picks up crazy speed. That is why people vacation there to ride the crazy current.

People keep saying water finds it level but the Nile River proves the Earth is a Ball.

As proven by cool things like the Hubble Space Telescope and even Space Faring Probes to other Planets in our Solar System.

The Earth is a Round Sphere
Mars and Jupiter are Round Spherical Masses
The Moon is a Round Sphere Orbiting Earth in a Spherical, Orderly, Predictable Path.

Re: Prove or disprove FLAT EARTH
Iam ambivalent after a lot of research. Both sides of the debate have anomalies....

The flat earthers state that the UN Flag is the true map of earth and that Antarctic is actually a large ice wall encircling the land and sea.

There appear to be no credible evidence of anyone ever circling the globe by air from North and South route.

Firing a rocket to escape high enough to hit the "DOME" is not really feasible ....

HOWEVER

Flat earthers why not try and circumnavigate Antarctica..

The flat earth narrative is that Captain Cook attempted this but travelled for months and over 42000 miles and didnt come back to the starting point.

Replicating this voyage is doable and provable to end the debate one way or another

I could post for an easy 10 pages, hard evidence the earth is a spheroid from memory. But here's one anybody in the US or Europe can validate themselves.

I have personally seen the International Space Station multiple times and so can anyone else with a high power set of binoculars or telescope. I have a zoom set of binoculars that have 20x-50x magnification.

Get a pair and go to this website and pick a flyover time with a max height of 60 degrees or more. Check the weather for a clear sky and SEE IT FOR YOURSELF.

[link to spotthestation.nasa.gov (secure)]

50x is enough magnification to make out the basic fuselage and solar panels shape and it's not an airplane or helicopter. There is no weather balloon or blimp holding it up.

Hundreds of amateur astronomers have photographed it also.

Once you establish the ISS is there and orbiting the earth, FE is not possible.





BTW, I have posted this more than 10 times and FEers just blow it off by ignoring the post or some BS response. Never even trying to see if it's true.

Re: Prove or disprove FLAT EARTH
The other advantage to living on a ball is you never have to worry about Tsunamis.


The wave action is just so limited.

Because all the standing water on the Earth is Convex, you don't need to worry about an Tsunami effecting anything but the local area. They don't travel across vast Oceans due to the climb they would have to take. It just takes the energy right out of them.

Just think of the lives that have been saved because all the standing water is convex.




Today when you are feeling thankful eating your Turkey remember what a blessing the ball is, remember all the lives that have been saved.

Re: Prove or disprove FLAT EARTH
They say the ISS can be seen because it is reflecting sunlight to the viewers eyes. How is it that it can be seen for such a long time? Eight minutes would have it travel a distance approximately the width of the USA. How is it constantly reflecting sunlight to a viewers eyes for that duration? Anyone who has played with mirrors and sunlight know that the angle has to be precise for the viewer to see the mirror light up.

How much do you think an expedition like that would cost?

I would rather fund a trip to circumnavigate directly south through the south pole.

If you came out the other side, it proves the globe.

Here’s one. With a household intermediate telescope, on top of Mt Everest, one should be able to see the ENTIRE disc, everything on the continent. Every major city skyline, The Pyramids, at least the damned ice wall. This theory has been around long enough to prove something as silly as a massive ice wall surrounding our perimeter. Where does magma, lava, liquid rock come from?? From the depths of a flat earth? So, what we float on a magma ocean? and beneath it is more ice? How does flat earth explain volcanic activity? How does flat earth generate a magnetic field to protect us from the sun. We certainly need UV protection for our skin. Flat earth has every hole imaginable in it’s logic.
