Flat Earth Debate / Some interesting pictures...

So, I guess this guy's in on the conspiracy too:

Flat Earth Q&A / As the Ships Come Sailing In...
« on: November 23, 2006, 10:23:08 PM »
Look, I'm not really well-versed in science, but I do know empirical data when I see it.  Yes, it's interesting that light rays seem to shine down in a wide spread (though I have seen brilliant explainations for this that I'd need to look up, and it's not my argument anyway), but there's something I can't explain with the flat-earth theory.  I've seen it at the beach more than once, with the naked eye and with the zoom on my camera.  This isn't just the fact that the water looks to have a noticable curve when you look out at the ocean, but more to do with ships sailing out near the horizon.  I've seen ships pop up and down over the horizon before.  They're relatively close since I can still make out that they're ships, and see them get covered up by the water.  Looks almost like they're sinking.  Now, wouldn't something fade slowly as it gets further and further away if distance was the reason they disappeared?
Anyway, I may not even come back to check any replies to this, just thought I'd spark it up as a discussion topic.  

I'd love to be able to take a picture of the stars moving in a circle, but I don't have an SLR, and my digital only takes a grand total of 15 seconds worth of exposure. One of the limitations of even higher-end point 'n shoots.
