Flat Earth Q&A / Distance proof.

RE Facts
Polar Radius 6,356.8 Km
FE Facts
Radius 23,255 Km (Taken from FAQ and translated into Km)
Has anyone ever tried to head in a straight line from the Arctic Circle to Antarctica?

Because surely, if anybody did, the sailor would feel quite a difference, and would know whether he was navigating 23000 km or 6000 km.

I am sure that if there was a conspiracy of this magnitude, GPS would be part of it. However, any sailor, or people with a tad of common sense would feel a 16,000 km difference while navigating from the Arctic to Antarctica.

What you guys think? is there anything i am missing or wrong? a FE going to prove me wrong?

FAQ says:

Q: "Why does gravity vary with altitude?"

A: The moon and stars have a slight gravitational pull.

The moon does not always have the same position, you do  not see the same stars everywhere in the world. How come the gravitational pull decreases at the same rate everywhere you go?

Flat Earth Q&A / Unanswered questions

Hi All I am new, and I just wanted to hear answers to some questions that I have read and where not answered...

"9. Why can't you see Europe or Africa from the United States East Coast? With a telescope, or at least even partially by the naked eye, wouldn't you be able to see the continents? Especially, if anything, Mount Everest, which is the highest point on Earth. If you could, then back in the 1400s, everybody would have known that the "new world" was out there across the ocean. Even when Columbus was halfway across the ocean, he didn't see the "new world" due to the curvature of the Earth.

10. If you looked South from the easternmost point in Brazil, then wouldn't you see the giant ice wall?" (Johnriot87, May 01, 2006)

Then I have another question my self...You guys are saying that the Earth is flat, and somewhere in the FAQ I have read that the Sun might be flat in theory, during sunset or sunrise, when the sun is not right above us, shouldn't we see the shape of the sun Not as round, but more like an oblique figure or an ellipse??

Thank you in advance for your answers..
