Can any FEer explain to me why Rowbotham does not detail how refraction may explain his experiments' results or explain the discrepancies in the RE theory?

He did not mention refraction because it would refute his claims, silly.

It is interesting to note that he states that refraction would lower his calculated sun-to-earth distance to less than 700 miles, but never explains how it would and to what significance.

You forgot about the horrendus mullet he shared with Tina Turner (as used in madmax:beyond the thunder dome).

I guess refraction has stumped FEers.  Not even Tom Bishop is responding!

I also notice that Rowbotham makes assumptions from his results without taking any other variables into account.  Or, at least he does not list these variables nor their effects.  It seems to me no more than ideological propaganda rather than a true scientific observation.

Quote from:  Rowbotham, Earth: Not A Globe
Hence the phenomenon of the hull of an outward bound vessel being the first to disappear, which has been so universally quoted and relied upon as proving the rotundity of the earth, is fairly, both logically and mathematically, a proof of the very contrary, that the earth is a plane. It has been misunderstood and misapplied in consequence of an erroneous view of the laws of perspective, and the unconquered desire to support a theory. That it is valueless for such a purpose is now completely demonstrated.

He continues to make assumptions.  How would the laws of perspective not apply to RE?
