Title: I have personally seen the curvature of the Earth
Post by: BongRipper808 on September 03, 2008, 03:47:31 PM
I have personally seen the curvature of the Earth. When I drive down this long road into the country crossing the road are about 5-7 power lines up in the air. They are suspended by these huge towers and if you look to the left or right you can see one single row of these towers going as far as the eye can see which is all the way to the horizon. The ground is relatively flat and there are no trees blocking the way. Now when your gaze gets nearer to the horizon the towers start to get shorter and shorter. You can no longer see the bottom of the towers but you can see the top. The next tower in line will have even less of its top showing than the first. It only takes about 3 or 4 till they are out of sight. There are two possible explanations for this.
1: Near the horizon on both sides of the road is a very long but gradual downward slope. This will cause me to preserve that the towers are getting smaller in size. Convenient eh?
2: Earth is actually curving.
 I have just single handily proved that the earth is round. I want to hear your responses no matter how illogical they are.

No this is an optical illusion and is caused purly the refraction of the sunlight off denser dust particals which cause resonating with the parralax path that the beam of light takes to reach your eyes, next time close one eye and all should appear good......

Besides, the road itself could be engineered to appear as if it was bending.

Light bends naturally. Our eyes adjust to this, and thus we percieve it to be straight.

Ok so I guess light bends a bit but that is threw 2 different mediums. There is just air where Iím looking. If there was ne affect like that then it would be like the straw and not how I described and be way less drastic.

Exactly.. since it isn't as dense,  it doesn't make the telephone poles look like the straw.

Nah now youíre twisting my words. The effect should look like the straw. The towers should be broken from the middle a bit not moving downward and disappearing from the base up. Since the moisture in the air is not as dense as water it should look similar but the break shouldnít look so bad. Thatís what would happen if what you say is true. But thatís not the effect that I describe. The effect that I describe isnít the same effect as the one portrayed by the straw in the cup.

Well, the ground could just be curved at that particular spot. If I put sticks in the ground at the top of Half Dome mountain, they would produce exactly the effect you are describing.

Light DOES NOT bend! it REFRACTS!

the only possible way you can bend light, is near a black hole, and when light is pulled around the curvature of the atmosphere of another planet.

Light, on earth Can NOT! bend.

That picture of the straw in the water is refraction.

Light refracts. It can also bend through space as it follows a geodesic in spacetime. All I have proposed with the EA is a new hypothesis for how light may bend through spacetime, too.

But saying that it can bend on earth with no extra forces, just by putting a toothbrush in a glass of water?

^^ that example is refraction, not bending, if it bent the tooth brush would have a curvature as it enter the water, not a split.

That is what you would see if you ascended by a few hundred kilometres, due to the curvature of the path light follows from beyond the horizon.

Negative.  Your EA was always separate from spacetime.  Thus the EA part.

Yes, that is why I said that it bends through spacetime. As opposed to conventional theory, which predicts light to follow a geodesic through spacetime.

Nah, we actually use the fact the light bends around our sun to magnify images of distant objects (oh I forgot, thats only if you believe that the other stars we see are more than a 3 or 4-day drive away...)

Roads might seem curved but that's just because they're aren't completely straight - nothing can ever be 110%, completely, totally straight. No human road-builder can make a perfectly straight road - so the curvature you mention is purely an effect of poor workmanship.

Blame the builder, not the Earth being round. Fact.

How much evidence do we need to gather to prove that the Earth is flat before everyone believes us? When will governments revise geography books?

I thought of something while I was gone. What causes the sun to move in a circle above the center of the Earth? The only time that something naturally moves in a circle is if there is something in the middle to pull it towards the midpoint of the circle. (like gravity). But gravity doesn't exist.

There is no such thing as gravity.  The Earth sucks.  Other heavenly bodies do not do this.  The Moon does not suck.
