Sputnik 1 falls to Earth (1958)

Sputnik 1 was the first artificial satellite to be put into orbit. It was launched by the Soviet Union in October, 1957, and acted as the starting gun for the space race. The Sputnik, Russian for "travel companion," gathered data about the density of the upper layers of the atmosphere and the behavior of radio signals in the ionosphere. Sputnik 2, the second satellite to be put into orbit, was the first to carry a living creature.

Ferdinand Magellan Sets Sail to Circumnavigate Globe (1519)
Magellan's expedition sailed down the South American coast, through the Straight of Magellan, and across the Pacific Ocean, which Magellan himself named. The voyage proved definitively the roundness of the earth and revealed the Americas as a new world, separate from Asia. Though Magellan is often credited with being the first to circle the globe, he himself died in the Philippines and never returned to Europe.

Flat Earth Q&A / Lensing

How come the sun (spotlight :lol:) looks so big in the morning and so big in the evening, compared to how it looks during the majority of the day?

As I understand, when we view the sun in the morning, we are viewing it through atmospheric conditions and a distorted atmosphere, i.e. a lense.  At midday, when the sun is overhead, the lensing effect is decreased.  When the sun sets, it suddenly appears bigger. How does this happen in the Flat Earth theory?

If the Earth is flat explain this:
In the Boxing day tsunami where oceanographers and seismologists have revealed that the crust of the earth split open beneath the sea. How come as a result of this, all the water didnt drain out of the oceans and tumble into space?????
