Flat Earth Q&A / Ships on the horizon
« on: December 06, 2011, 05:46:34 AM »
I dont know if this has been asked before but Im gonna asked it anyway because doing searches and going through all the threads has gotten really tedious for me. So ...

Q. What is actually happening when a ship appears to "sink" over the horizon of the ocean?

I have seen this personally with (binoculars) and without any visual aid and its something anyone can do. My own observation was that as the ship reaches the horizon point and moves beyond it, it appears to slowly "sink" over the horizon. If the earth was flat, the ship would just continue to become smaller and smaller until its too small to see. If the atmosphere was limiting my field of view, it would gradually fade and dissappear but still be within line of sight (or something like that, you tell me).

Flat Earth Q&A / Impact by Asteroid or Meteor

I was wondering if anyone could answer this for me?

Q. If the Earth is a disc-shape, what would happen if a large celestial object like a meteor, asteroid or comet were to clip the very side of the rim? Would the Earth spin out of control like a coin flipping through the air and throw everything on its surface into turmoil, and, perhaps, off into space? The are many examples (huge craters) of cataclysmic impacts, some of which can be found in Southern Africa which would be fairly close to the rim. Has this sort of disaster happened before and if so, why is the Earth not spinning/flipping through space like a coin?
