Title: The sun's path throughout the day during an equinox
Post by: chtwrone on August 29, 2015, 07:50:09 PM
I'm not sure if this particular subject has been discussed previously, but here goes anyway.

An equinox occurs twice a year, once on, or around the 21st of March, and again on, or around the 23rd of September. An equinox is when the sun at midday is exactly overhead the equator.  The round earth model accounts for these events because of the 23.5 degree wobble in the earth's axis of rotation throughout the year, and the flat earth theory accounts for this because of the migration throughout the year, of the sun's circular path over the earth, with the sun's path transiting between the Tropic of Cancer in the northern summer, and the Tropic of Capricorn in the southern summer.

So if an observer is located on the equator during an equinox, they will observe in the morning, that the sun appears at first light, moving from an exact easterly position, then moving in an exact straight line throughout the morning until it is directly overhead at midday. At this point the sun  will caste no shadows whatsoever. From midday onwards, the sun is now observed to move in an exact straight line towards the west, until it has eventually disappeared at the end of the day.

You will have noticed the blue highlighting of the words 'exact straight line', which has been deliberate. This is to draw your attention to the fact that the observed path of the sun through the sky during an equinox, is always an 'exact straight line', from the time the sun first appears, through to midday and then till the sun has eventually gone at day's end.

The spherical earth model accounts for the sun's 'exact straight line movement, due to the earth's axis of rotation being 'exactly' perpendicular to the sun on the 21st of March and 23rd of September.

Now we come to the flat earth model, and a big problem arises.

According to the flat earth model, the sun makes a circular path once a day over the earth's surface.
I will say that again - 'The sun makes a CIRCULAR PATH over the earth's surface.'

I will now ask a flat earth proponent to explain how the sun, which is making a CIRCULAR PATH over the earth's surface, can be observed during the equinox, to move in an exact straight line in the sky between morning, midday and evening?

And yes, this observation of a perfectly exact straight-line tracking of the sun is fact, and is observed/celebrated twice a year from the La Mitad del Mundo monument located in Peru, which is situated exactly on the equator. Of course, this observation can be made at any point on the equator during either of the two yearly equinoxes.

Did you make an experiment to find that it is an exact straight line, or are you just taking the Satanic NASA scientists word for it?  Or, perhaps you have a friend who knows a guy who has an uncle who went to Ecuador on the Equinox and in between glasses of cerveza, conducted detailed experiments for this?  lol

The Sun rises in the East and sets in the west, it does not rise in the north-east and set in the north-west.  That is all the accuracy you need to know that the ridiculous flat Earth predictions are false.

Wow, you really have got a 'thing' about NASA haven't you, lol.

And no, NASA has nothing to do with the equatorial straight lines during the equinox, this phenomenon has been happening for quite a few billion years now.

You really expect us to take the word of a liberal teacher on this matter?  I bet the teacher never performed these experiments either and is just repeating what the Satanists tell her to teach the naive children in order to further spread the lies and deceit that ensure a new batch of future adults that never question anything they are told.  Do you ever think for yourself?

Sure I think for myself.

It's obvious that you do your own thinking too, but unfortunately, most of your 'thoughts' and opinions are based on ignorance, which renders most of what you 'think' worthless and without merit or credibility.

So back to the sun and the straight line paths that it is observed to make in the sky, please explain how the sun can do this, if the flat earth model dictates that the sun travels in a curved circular path every 24 hours at a height of 3000 miles?

You see the difference between flat earthers and round earthers is that round earthers base their knowledge on established and proven science (independent of your evil and Satanic Nasa, lol) whereas flat earthers actually just make shit up without ever referring to established fact.

Oh, by the way, just because you haven't tested it yourself, how do you know it doesn't happen? I mean, you haven't tested yourself how far the moon and the sun is, if they move in a circular path above the earth, if things really don't disappear below the horizon, and if there is an ice wall, but you still believe them.

Yeah. Much like the fact that the earth is a globe.

Also, what phenomenon does the ice wall explain? Last time I checked, it was just make believe bullshit.

Have you gone full retard? Have you forgotten already that your flat earth fallacy supports that there is a massive, really really tall wall around Antarctica? Some even say that it's what keeps the atmosphere from falling off of the Earth's disk. Speaking of which, HOW does the atmosphere stay on your flat earth? All I've heard is shit about temperature differences, but we both know that it wouldn't even hold the atmosphere for a decade, and even that is a stretch.

No, Antarctica, or the Rim Continent as it is better known to us flat Earthers or the Ice Wall as it is known to you roundies, does not hold anything in except the oceans.  It is land that is covered in ice because it is very far away from the sun.  At those temperatures, water can not even stay vaporized in the air.  If you go much further into Antarctica, closer to the edge, the air becomes so could that gases can not even stay in gaseous form and precipitate out the ground.  There are simply no gases left by the time you reach the edge.  This is my theory, anyway.  You can make up your own about a giant wall as if we were talking about the US/Mexico border if you want to, but don't try to pass your theory of as if it came from a FE'er.

It's not a theory, it's complete speculation, based on absolutely nothing.

I didn't say that YOU believe that the ice wall keeps the atmosphere in, but many flat earthers do.

Now your theory is entertaining to think about, but there is no proof of any of it. The only way for it to work is if the liquid gases flowed back into the zone where they would reevaporate. However, since the ice contracts the colder it gets, so it's reasonable that instead of getting higher the closer you get to the edge, it would get lower and the liquid gases would flow away into the void. Another problem is that I sincerely doubt that a planet with such volcanic activity would ever get THAT cold.

You are not thinking correctly.  If liquid gases were flowing towards the edge, they would continue to get colder and would eventually create a dam because they would become solid.  This dam would stop the fluid movement towards the edge and eventually, things would have to flow back towards the warmer areas where the gases would simply evaporate again.  It is simple physics.

Is that a joke??????  There is no "straight" line in your fantasy-sphere model either ---- even though you are lying in saying there is. 



Note to honest folks: 
The liars tell us that the non-existent atmosphere creates optical effects by virtue of light defraction.  They use that lie to con us into rejecting everything we see in plain sight and to con the world into accepting their fantasy model.  Therefore, use their fantasy-physics against them and demand that they adhere to their own nonsense principles consistently.  If you apply their lies consistently, the premise in their pretend-questions becomes nonsense. 
The shill here in this thread is telling us that we "see" a straight line when we do not --- when a "straight" line is not physically possible in their own fantasy-sphere model.  What appears to them as a "straight" line is a result of perspective and they know it.

No, do not bother going off on any more tangents.  I believe it. 


Note to honest folks: 
If the liars can use the refraction/diffraction/whatever principles to explain their illusions, then we can do the same.  We can say that the properties of light create the illusion of a "globe" model too. 

Every day, we see triangulation of the sun's rays through the clouds.  How do they explain that?  They say it is an illusion.  Let them explain their illusion.  It is not the job of honest folks to explain their illusions. 
It is not an illusion.

And I did provide my argument. And diffraction has nothing to do with anything. And he seems like he has no clue what he's talking about.

However, since the ice contracts the colder it gets, so it's reasonable that instead of getting higher the closer you get to the edge, it would get lower and the liquid gases would flow away into the void. Another problem is that I sincerely doubt that a planet with such volcanic activity would ever get THAT cold.

You are not thinking correctly.  If liquid gases were flowing towards the edge, they would continue to get colder and would eventually create a dam because they would become solid.  This dam would stop the fluid movement towards the edge and eventually, things would have to flow back towards the warmer areas where the gases would simply evaporate again.  It is simple physics.

Waiiiit a minute! How large is earth again? What's its radius according to flat earthers? It would have to be something like 100 million miles or something! Because I hope you realize that you are talking about temperatures below -210 degrees Celsius, right? And that's assuming that the pressure is sea level atmosphere pressure. I'm sorry, but that's ridiculous. At that temperature, even ice apparently stops being stable, whatever that could mean. Are you suggesting that a planet that is geologically active and with an atmosphere will ever get THAT cold? Even Pluto is -233 degrees Celsius apparently, and it's not active, or has an atmosphere. It's a bit ridiculous. Come on. Also, how much atmosphere was there to begin with? Because even if it had twice what we've got now, it would probably be gone already, frozen in Antarctica. How was Earth created? All that makes no sense. You also have 0 proof about any of that, other than what you suppose would happen.

Although it is not 100% proven, the most commonly accepted theory is that the rocks and dust that were revolving around the sun during the birth of the solar system attracted each other with their gravitational pull. As they grew larger and larger, their pull became more and more powerful. Thus, slowly, over the years, they became extremely large and... Well... Voila. We have planets. It actually makes a ton of sense.

Uh... You asked me how the Earth was formed. The answer is, the same way the rest of the planets did. How did they form? The way I explained to you. There is no rational explanation for how a flat earth would be formed.

Successfully diverted the threat from its original subject, where no flat earth believer dares to commit to a straight answer because obviously, all the people that live between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn are in on the conspiracy ... because all of them observe the sun going in a straight line, east to west, during a culmination.

The Tropic of Cancer, by the way, is the most northerly circle of latitude on the Earth at which the Sun appears directly overhead at its culmination. Its southern equivalent is the Tropic of Capricorn.

The areas between those two lines include territories of over 100 counties, including China, India, Indonesia, most African nations, the northern halves of Australia and South-America, Central-America and Mexico. Obviously ALL the people in those countries are part of the world wide conspiracy to promote a round earth, because once a year they can just step out on the street, look up and see that the sun is not behaving like flat earth believers claim it does.

Are you saying that diffraction does not occur with light?  Also, you did not even address  Charming Anarchist's points.  How do light rays diverge through a cloud when it should be parallel?

What? When did I say that diffraction does not occur? It's unrelated though.

So, are you still insisting on that stupid converging rays thing? What's next, asking why roads or railways appear to converge? I tell you what: one day, observe where the rays land, preferably at noon, because otherwise they're going to land too far. When they're coming through the clouds, they appear like they are converging, right? Well, go to the locations that they land (which are most likely 1km apart or even less, depending on what time it is) and place sticks and photograph their shadows. The best way to do it would be with a friend, so that you can photograph them simultaneously. You will notice that the shadows look precisely the same. If the rays weren't parallel, and had the extreme angles that they appear to have, it would mean that places only 1km apart would have a huge difference in time and vastly different shadows.

Are we done with this yet? It's stupid. Get over it.

Diffraction is light changing direction, dum-dum.  And, train tracks appear to converge when your line of sight is approximately parallel to the tracks, not when your line of sight is perpendicular to the tracks, like it approximately is when watching rays of light shine through a cloud in the distance.  ::)

All they have to do is look out at sunrise, noon and sunset on one specific day in the year to see that the sun traveled a straight line ... all a single person under all those hundreds of millions that live in the described area has to do to prove flat earth is - on that day - take a few pictures, maybe a video, showing that the sun traveled in a curve instead the straight line a round earth predicts, and put it out on any of a million internet outlets ... and flat earth would be proven.

Why has nobody ever done that.

Maybe there is a forum member living in those areas ... why has that person never done that?

Hundreds of millions of people see this and not a single whistle blower has ever stepped forward in hundreds of years?

Jeez, that's what I call a successful conspiracy.

Should it not be your burden of proof that anyone who not affiliated with the government has once stared at the sunrise while using a compass to check which direction it was rising on the exact day that it was supposed to be rising in the east and documented it with pictures or video or what ever else you went on about?  You act like I am supposed to do your legwork for you or just believe what you say, even though you have never done this yourself.  ::)

Really? All you have to respond to this is the question of burden of proof? Billions of people, according to you, are caught in the throngs of conspiracy and falsehood, in a scam perpetrated by governments and agencies all over the world ... and there it is, the undeniable proof, evidence you can hold high, which would humiliate all those that have defended the round earth lie for so long, finally silencing all those shills ...

... and all you can bring forth is "burden of proof"?.

If you truly believe in flat earth, if you truly believe that satanist forces are betraying humainity day by day, wouldn't it be your duty to take that chance ... even if it would be a slight inconvenience?

Because I am NOT talking about us convincing you ... this is about the chance of you convincing the rest of the world ... isn't that worth some effort? Isn't this worth putting your actions were your mouth is?

But maybe then you wouldn't feel special anymore ... maybe your life would lose meaning if all those "sheep" would believe the same things you do. Maybe you would then need to make up a new conspiracy ...

So, what is it? Do you believe but not care ... or do you not believe? Because we have reached a point where there is no other choice.

Billions of people, according to you, are caught in the throngs of conspiracy and falsehood, in a scam perpetrated by governments and agencies all over the world ... and there it is, the undeniable proof, evidence you can hold high, which would humiliate all those that have defended the round earth lie for so long, finally silencing all those shills ...

... and all you can bring forth is "burden of proof"?.

If you truly believe in flat earth, if you truly believe that satanist forces are betraying humainity day by day, wouldn't it be your duty to take that chance ... even if it would be a slight inconvenience?

Because I am NOT talking about us convincing you ... this is about the chance of you convincing the rest of the world ... isn't that worth some effort? Isn't this worth putting your actions were your mouth is?

But maybe then you wouldn't feel special anymore ... maybe your life would lose meaning if all those "sheep" would believe the same things you do. Maybe you would then need to make up a new conspiracy ...

So, what is it? Do you believe but not care ... or do you not believe? Because we have reached a point where there is no other choice.

So, your whole argument is, "Surely, one person did this, so it must be true, even though I can not prove that one person did this?"  Your only rebuttal is to claim probability as a defense?  Did you think that we were playing roulette, because I thought we were having a debate.  Would you like for me to try to find my D&D dice so we can each roll to see who wins?  Your arguments get worse every time I read them.  You should feel bad bringing probability into a debate as a defense, much less a probability that you can do even defend using actual numbers, but your gut feeling instead, especially in a serious science forum.  Shame on you.   >:(

Seriouly? It wasn't an argument, it was a proposal. Don't you WANT the population of earth to find out the true shape of the earth? Don't you want to become popular, rich, whatever you want?

I was talking about the burden of proof statement that you replied to.  I am saying that you need to show proof and not just say, "This probably happened at least one."  If I get caught steeling something, I can't just say, "There is a probability that someone else would have stolen it anyway."  Do you think that a judge would accept that as a defense?  Yet, you expect me to accept that as proof in a debate?  This is getting ridiculous.  You are dumbing down the entire internet now.   >:(

You were given a way to prove to everyone that the earth is flat. Then you reject it, starts talking about who should be proving (when you are the obvious minority, who are trying to disprove the generally accepted world view) and now you say something about probabilities.

You really are on confused individual.

Who said I wanted to prove the Earth is flat?  I find it much more enjoyable to point out the round Earth theory flaws.  It makes you all look dumb for believing in this rubbish.  After people realize that they have been lied to all this time, they will usually naturally start researching the flat Earth theory and "gravitate" to our side.  lol

So Soulblood was right. Your ego can't survive if there are no "sheeps" you can laugh at whilst high on your own imaginations.
Soory, but close to all your credibility was lost there.

Are you saying that diffraction does not occur with light?  Also, you did not even address  Charming Anarchist's points.  How do light rays diverge through a cloud when it should be parallel?

What? When did I say that diffraction does not occur? It's unrelated though.

So, are you still insisting on that stupid converging rays thing? What's next, asking why roads or railways appear to converge? I tell you what: one day, observe where the rays land, preferably at noon, because otherwise they're going to land too far. When they're coming through the clouds, they appear like they are converging, right? Well, go to the locations that they land (which are most likely 1km apart or even less, depending on what time it is) and place sticks and photograph their shadows. The best way to do it would be with a friend, so that you can photograph them simultaneously. You will notice that the shadows look precisely the same. If the rays weren't parallel, and had the extreme angles that they appear to have, it would mean that places only 1km apart would have a huge difference in time and vastly different shadows.

Are we done with this yet? It's stupid. Get over it.

Diffraction is light changing direction, dum-dum.  And, train tracks appear to converge when your line of sight is approximately parallel to the tracks, not when your line of sight is perpendicular to the tracks, like it approximately is when watching rays of light shine through a cloud in the distance.  ::)

O rly? That's what diffraction is?

No  shit Sherlock.

Actually, no, it's not exactly that, but what I was saying is that diffraction is completely unrelated to anything discussed here.

Now you probably never go ououtside, but if you did go outside, you would know that clouds, most of the time,  are further away from you than the ground directly below them is. If they are way too far away for the railway effect to have an effect on them, guess what, it doesn't. Since it's unlikely that you will go outside to see for yourself, once I get back to my computer (in two days that is, I'm on vacation) I will send you a photo of completely parallel rays coming out from very distant clouds.

I also told you to perform a simple experiment, that you ignored. I know that never going outside might make it hard to comprehend that if you walk a distance of 1km you're not going to get anywhere close to another time zone, but I can give you my word that it's like that.

That is an incomplete definition.  Diffraction requires an object, refraction requires a change in medium. Diffraction indeed has nothing to do with the topic. Refraction should have been used.

Ok, you're definitely high. You even confused me with Master Evar.

Am I supposed to feel sorry for the poor puppy that I picked on? Oh yeah, the poor guy... All he wanted to do is share a bit of nonsense with us...

I also fail to see how diffraction would have anything to do with the shape of the earth. It would make more sense if he said refraction, because refraction is the reason why sometimes the curvature of earth is less prominent, and I know many flat earthers think it doesn't work or something. Diffraction though? It's completely unrelated. And by saying "defraction" he gives me the impression that it's not a spelling mistake, and that he simply has no idea what he's talking about. I also never said that I don't believe in diffraction. It simply has nothing to do with what we are discussing.

So I guess the whole cloud and crepuscular ray talk had nothing to do with anything, right?

And no, diffraction isn't a vague "light changing direction". It's light changing direction when it passes through a thin enough hole or slit, nobody denies it, and it is fully explained both by classical physics and quantum electrodynamics. I still don't understand what it has to do with anything.

Successfully diverted the threat from its original subject, where no flat earth believer dares to commit to a straight answer because obviously, all the people that live between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn are in on the conspiracy ... because all of them observe the sun going in a straight line, east to west, during a culmination.

The Tropic of Cancer, by the way, is the most northerly circle of latitude on the Earth at which the Sun appears directly overhead at its culmination. Its southern equivalent is the Tropic of Capricorn.

The areas between those two lines include territories of over 100 counties, including China, India, Indonesia, most African nations, the northern halves of Australia and South-America, Central-America and Mexico. Obviously ALL the people in those countries are part of the world wide conspiracy to promote a round earth, because once a year they can just step out on the street, look up and see that the sun is not behaving like flat earth believers claim it does.


You think all of the people you mentioned stare at the sun all day?  Lol there is some wrong with.

You think they never look up at the sun during their lives?

You think they stare at it for an entire day?  ::)

All they have to do is look out at sunrise, noon and sunset on one specific day in the year to see that the sun traveled a straight line ... all a single person under all those hundreds of millions that live in the described area has to do to prove flat earth is - on that day - take a few pictures, maybe a video, showing that the sun traveled in a curve instead the straight line a round earth predicts, and put it out on any of a million internet outlets ... and flat earth would be proven.

Why has nobody ever done that.

Maybe there is a forum member living in those areas ... why has that person never done that?

Hundreds of millions of people see this and not a single whistle blower has ever stepped forward in hundreds of years?

Jeez, that's what I call a successful conspiracy.

Should it not be your burden of proof that anyone who not affiliated with the government has once stared at the sunrise while using a compass to check which direction it was rising on the exact day that it was supposed to be rising in the east and documented it with pictures or video or what ever else you went on about?  You act like I am supposed to do your legwork for you or just believe what you say, even though you have never done this yourself.  ::)

It is well known and documented, that on the equator during the 2 equinoxes each year (March and September) the sun rises directly out of the east, climbs vertically in the sky until it is directly overhead at midday, and then descends vertically until it sets directly in the west. During the whole time that the sun is visible during the day, its path in the sky is an exact straight line - once again, this is well known and documented and has never been disputed.

But according to flat earth theory, the sun's path over the earth's surface describes a complete circle within a 24 hour period. But as we have seen with each equinox, the sun's path in the sky is a perfectly straight line from the time it becomes visible in the east, until it disappears exactly west in the evening.

The burden of proof is actually on flat earthers to provide contrary evidence to this established fact.

The next equinox is in approximately 3 weeks, on the 23rd of September, and will be an excellent opportunity for flat earthers to prove beyond all possible doubt that the sun's path in the sky during an equinox at the equator is curved or not. If it's a curved path, then this will absolutely destroy the round earth theory and prove beyond all doubt that the earth is flat.
The flat earth movement is now quite organised, with many members coming from scientific backgrounds. Would you expect these 'scientific' members to take this excellent opportunity to prove the flat earth theory beyond all doubt, and assign a group to travel to an equatorial region on the 23rd of September and conduct this earth shattering experiment?

Why am I required to perform an experiment, when the observations of the result of this experiment have already been known for hundreds/thousands of years and are documented and verified already?

Surely, this experiment will be done by flat earthers on the 23rd of September, to actually counter the already well known and documented observations of the sun's exact straight line movement in the sky.

The burden of proof is on people such as yourself to counter what is already verified as fact. If any one needs to 'perform the experiment or shut up' then it is obviously YOU.

The thing you don't seem to understand is that you are the minority that is trying to change what is conceived as facts. If you don't want to do the experiment, then we don't have to do the experiment and facts will not change. We don't need to do the experiment because to us it won't make a difference if we got the result we believe we would get. But if you did the experiment and got the results you were imagining then that would be in favor for you. This is why the burden of proof is on you. If you ignore it then facts will keep being facts, and round earth will still be a fact.

By the way, I assume your tax money isn't defrauded by a space agency or fake scientists ... because it would be stupid to think you allow your money to go to such agencies when you have an easy way out. But maybe being a prick is really that important to you.

Round earth believers provide one piece of evidence that the earth is round ... billions of people all over the world shrug and move on with their lives without giving it a second thought, as they have never doubted that fact in the first place.

Flat earth believers provide one piece of evidence that the earth is flat ... billions of people all over the world are stunned as the veil they lived under is finally pulled from their eyes and lying, manipulative agencies and governments all over this disk (see how I didn't use globe there) are exposed and tumble.

Like I pointed out before ... if you prefer to argue over semantics while the world suffers, fine, but you are acknowledging that you are a horrible, selfish, ignorant person - not because of your believes, but because you are not willing to do anything about it.

Like I pointed out before ... if you prefer to argue over semantics while the world suffers, fine, but you are acknowledging that you are a horrible, selfish, ignorant person - not because of your believes, but because you are not willing to do anything about it.

Is there supposed to be a point here?

Here is a great piece of evidence that Earth is round, it proves that we see the Sun from the same angle everywhere on Earth and by extension that the Sun is very far away and given that the only way for time zones to be possible is Earth being round.

Here is the thread where I posted the results of my experiment:

There you go with that BS experiment again that even your fellow roundies tried to explain to you is flawed.  Why don't you just retire that one and come up with an experiment that actually does provide evidence for the shape of the Earth instead of posting your one experiment that has nothing to do with the shape of the Earth and then declaring that you have proven the shape.  You do realize that this make your credibility go down, right?

It was only BS because it didn't show what you wanted.

It's not flawed though. The sunspots are exactly the same. That's the only point that would be important here. It proves that they are looking at the same side of the sun. It can't really happen on a flat earth.

The only flaw with that experiment is that it leaves reasonable doubt that the results are not faked.  I have tried to do many more experiments an many more occasions requiring flat earther volunteers but in all of those I never once had a flat earther offer to help.  Round earthers volunteered all the time but no flat earthers.

My most recent experiment is the horizon level experiment which is meant to directly measure the curvature of the Earth and it doesn't even require any coordination between users.  Would you like to participate in that experiment?

Successfully diverted the threat from its original subject, where no flat earth believer dares to commit to a straight answer because obviously, all the people that live between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn are in on the conspiracy ... because all of them observe the sun going in a straight line, east to west, during a culmination.
The sun NEVER "goes" in a straight line.

The tile of the experiment is something like, "Experiment to Prove that the Earth is Round."  Or something like that.  Does that alone prove that the experiment was devised with a bias? 

Secondly, the experiment had nothing to do with proving anything; especially not the shape of the Earth.  It is about looking at the sun.  Do you not understand that looking at the sun never "prove" the shape of the Earth?

Thirdly, the results were skewed to make it sound like the Earth must be round.  It could have been a cylinder or an egg or even a cube for all the experiment shows.  Nothing about the experiment proves any shape of the anything.  It is the subjective analysis of the data that mikeman tries to lead people to believe is "proof that the Earth is round."

I know the dog pack (roundies) like to gang together, and I would like to think it is simply because you are on the same side.  However, when one person is being deceitful, it makes you all look like scam artists.  Why don't you call mikeman out on his "scientific experiment, lol" and "detailed analysis"?  Are you people really this desperate?

It doesn't prove that the Earth is round, but it does disprove the current flat earth theory.

The sun NEVER "goes" in a straight line.

I note your emphasis on 'goes'.  Maybe the use of the term 'appears to travel' would be more acceptable?

In any case, if you're on the equator during an equinox, the sun 'appears to travel' in a completely straight line, from the time it first appears in the morning, through till midday when the sun is directly overhead, until evening when the sun is no longer visible. So to simplify, the sun 'appears to travel' in a completely straight line the whole time that the sun is visible, which will be very close to a 12 hour period.

But according to flat earth theory, the sun can NEVER be observed to 'appear to travel' in a completely straight line, because the sun in transcribing a complete circle over the earth's surface within a 24 hour period, and there is NO part of a circular path that is straight.

Not one flat earther on this forum, has managed to explain why the sun 'appears to travel' in a completely straight line, when in fact, the sun should ALWAYS 'appear to travel' in a curved and circular path.

As I have mentioned previously in a recent post, the upcoming equinox on the 23rd of September will be an excellent opportunity for the flat search society hierarchy to conduct a trip to an equatorial location, and verify one way or the other if the flat earth theory is correct or not.

 The results will be conclusive, with the observation of the sun 'appearing to move' in a completely straight line throughout the day, confirming the round earth model, and conversely, the observation of the sun 'appearing to move' in a curved path will confirm the flat earth model.

Here is one of the few conclusive 'experiments' available to the flat earthers to prove beyond all doubt what so ever, that the round earth model is flawed, so of course the hierarchy of the flat earth movement will conduct this visit to the equator on the 23rd of September. Would you be surprised and disappointed if this visit did not take place, a visit that will be ground breaking in favor of the flat earth theory?

You had better take note of that.  Re-write your shill cookbook and then get back to us with a better script. 
You are a terrible shill.  You should be ashamed of yourself. 



Note to honest, honorable and intelligent folks: 
This is how you get the liars, the shills, the disinfo trolls and the prisoners.  At this point, you ask them:  "In your fantasy-sphere-world model, what makes the sun 'appear to travel' in a straight line when we know the relative trajectory is NOT straight???  Explain that optical illusion or go back to hell.

The point is that sun doesn't ALWAYS appear to move in a straight line directly from east to west. It only does so during an equinox and in the equator.

No,  it's not called a "defuxion" of light, whatever that means, if you had actually read a couple stuff concerning the rotation of earth, you would understand what it is.
