Size of the sun
« on: Today at 04:31:44 AM »
Hello, I have a question about the size of the sun in comparison to the “flat earth”
According to you, the earth has a diameter of 24,000 miles or 38,000 kilometers and the sun has a diameter of 30 miles or 50 kilometers. So, the diameter of the earth is 760 times the diameter of the sun, in other words, the sun is unbelievably tiny in comparison to the earth and there is absolutely no way it can illuminate half of the planet at the same time.
If you look at pictures that show the difference in size between the earth and the sun, you could barely see the earth next to the sun which is only 109 times the diameter of the earh, now imagine if the earth is even 7 times smaller than that, that’s how small the sun in comparison to the earth in your model. So, how can a very tiny sun illuminate half of the planet at the same time and cause seasons?

To be a little more precise, see:

The Ice Wall
The figure of 24,900 miles is the diameter of the known world; the area which the light from the sun affects.
So, the earth has a diameter of 24,900 miles or 40,073 kilometers.
And
Quote from: The Flat Earth Wiki
The Sun
The sun is a sphere. It has a diameter of 32 miles and is located approximately 3000 miles above the surface of the earth.
So, the sun has a diameter of 32 miles or 51.5 kilometers.

But yes, the FE sun is tiny and close compared to the Globe earth sun - and therein lies one of the biggest problems for the FE, but they refuse to really address it.

A similar problem exists with their moon.
