Title: Curved or straight?
Post by: Omega on September 06, 2016, 12:41:46 AM
Inspired by a post by Markjo, I offer the following.

The MAIN argument from Flat Earthers is: the horizon LOOKS straight therefor it IS straight and therefor the Earth is flat.

THIS IS THE MAIN ARGUMENT!

So:

Do these lines look straight or curved?

Just because something looks straight, it doesn't need to be such.

The lines are obviously curved. Or at least they look curved. No, they only look curved.

It's so easy to trick your eyes.
