Flat Earth Q&A / No historical evidence
« on: April 29, 2006, 11:47:53 PM »
Actually, Four Fifths, Coelacanths (which you spelled incorrectly) were "seen 3900 years prior to this century," by numerous locals who fished off of the Comorian islands (they just incidentally never realized the significance of their catch).  But certainly anyone who every happened to "see the end of the earth" would not make such a mistake.

And the Coelacanths were "discovered" by western civilization in 1938, not really "just caught."

Flat Earth Q&A / A new idea (I hope)...

Yeah, a round earth.

All FEers have to prove in their case are some scientific facts which *could* be correct, then whenever a REer mentions gravity, plane trips, etc, you decide to "just forget the theory of relativity, etc." and use the "good ol' government conspiracy" route.

Hmmm....

First off,Knight, when I meant curvature I was signifying on a huge scale (i.e. round earth) and I thought that maybe the people at this forum would be intelligent enough to deduce this fact.  Obviously I was proven wrong.

Anyways, couldn't someone carry out some mathematics equations to first figure out how far an observer can see on a "clear" day (on a flat earth), and then relate that to how far someone can see taking into account the curvature of the earth if spherical, and see if in fact you should be able to see, say, a mountain range at 1000 miles on a flat earth, yet according to the spherical earth theory, you can only see to 800 miles at sea level, etc, etc...does this make sense?

Wait, I wonder if, say, I were to stand somewhere in China, on a perfectly clear day, with a powerful (non-manipulated :P ) telescope, could I see Mt. Everest?  In fact, could I theoretically see for thousands and thousands of miles in all directions?  

Yet this is not the case, therefore isnt some curvature on Earth's surface apparent?

Shouldn't there really only be North and South, with East and West now out of the picture?
