My Calculations came up with 1603 miles above my town using the suncalc.org

If you really were in construction then please explain how you used water to obtain the level for your foundation as opposed to surveying equipment.

A bucket of water, a clear plastic hose and a little patience. The poor man's dumpy level.
Actually pretty handy for interior work like wainscoting and suspended ceilings in multiple rooms where you need level points and line of site is a hassle.   Just drag hose around and one person can do it.
I think it works because of denspressure.

There is no such thing as "level", so get that out of your mind.

You go to the store and you buy attachments for a water hose, you then proceed to fill the hose up with water making sure to get all the air bubbles out of the middle of the hose, then you cap it you set the one end at the point where you are seeking to level and uncap the ends and see where the water levels out in the clear portion you have purchased. Now you cap it again move the one end to the area you wish to make level with your reference point and again uncap the hose, now you move the hose up and down until you have obtained the level you made at your reference point.

The Egyptians used water to level the base for the pyramids.

No they do not appear to tilt away beause they would only tilt 1° when 111 km (about 69 miles) away and that would be quite impossible to detect.

This is not quite true. if the curve of the earth is Distance squared x 8" then 3 miles would be six feet of curve. So looking across Lake Michigan at Chicago sky line which is over 3 miles you would see the tops of the buildings at the greater distances apart tilting away.

Now I am a builder and I can see a 1/4" out of level in 6 feet. So my eyes do not lie to me in square, level or plumb. And I would say that most people can see pretty well.

Just in short, those of us who work in studies or work in fields which must take into account the curvature of the earth -  since the earth is a globe - are just baffled why any persons would even think that the earth was flat in the year 2017. I will not go into it any further on this post. But we are dismayed that so-called flat earth believers call us vulgar names such as "RE-tards" and "Angry globulists." Rest assured it is a well known fact that the earth is the globe that it truly is.

I am tempted to ask one question.:
Have you ever been at sea or down to the shore and watched ships come and go over the horizon ?

I live on the Pacific Ocean, and have watched ships leave my prospective point of view. Then I picked up my large binoculars and have pulled them back into view with aid. Prospective is used by artist all the time as this is how our eyes work.
I am in construction and if physics works correctly my water level gives me a level foundation not a curved one as water seeks its own level.

Are you suggesting that FE has tracked you down, singled you out and heaped bad words upon you?

No I do not I believe that whether you believe round or flat everyone could be civil and not use name calling as it does not bring anything to the table and does not make the name caller a smart person in fact it shows their lack of evidence.

Can I say wow and not get a flaming response, probably not.

I see that this FES disscussion board seems to be mostly for profane language and name calling.

I have moved actually very quickly to believing the earth is flat for the past year, I am 53 years old so yes I was taught to believe everything I was told. I am a bible believer also so believing it a flat earth has come easier as scripture matches up to flat verses globe much better, but that is another flame that will come on.

You see I believe more in flat as I am 53 years old and I realize that my eyes do not lie buildings do not tilt away, the ocean is flat as water seeks its own level and many other observations that do not fit a globe spinning. Physics is another one that does not work for a globe. Anyway I am sure these all have been discussed here multiple times.

What I do not like about most comments is people bashing each other and not actually bringing evidence to the table. I am not saying I am 100% convinced about the earth being flat yet those who adhere to it sure do a lot of name calling for their cause.

Anyway stepping back so I do not get burned.

It is easier to fool someone than it is to teach them they have been fooled
