Title: Short version of inverse tangent argument
Post by: Jonny B Smart on April 04, 2017, 09:36:05 AM
Supposed diameter of flat Earth: 25,000 miles
Lit half of that: 12,000 miles
Radius of lit area: 6,250 miles
Alleged altitude of sun: 3,000 miles
Inv. Tangent of (3,000/6,250) = 25 degrees

 The flat earth model predicts that the sun will never be lower than that at 25 angle. It's clearly not true. Flat earth model proven impossible.
