Curvature From Space
« on: September 10, 2007, 08:01:37 PM »
The apparent curvature seen from high altitudes on earth does not constitute proof of a round earth.  As we all know the atmosphere is a thick medium with varying thickness and proportions due to shifting gravitational forces influenced from the sun and moon.  Since the atmosphere forms a convex formation over the earth (via fluctuating proportions), the earth appears elliptical.  This is analagous to a convex lens that distorts the image and reduces its apparent size allong the edges and increases the apparent size in the middle (e.g. magnifying glass):

Also, the gravitational pull of the sun and the moon explain the two oceanic tides.

Do you have any outlandish claims to back up your evidence?

Are these the really small FE sun and moon? Their gravitational pull wouldn't be much.

Its not broken, just past the size limitations. Lurk Moar.

Its not a repost.  The previous put into question the concavity of the oceans conflicting with covexity of the tides.

ONCE AGAIN! LURK MOAR!!
