Yes. Yes they would. His Majesty King Tom Bishop I would say that

The reason the shadows do not appear to go round in a circle is because blah blah blah perspective blah blah blah the dirty air blah blah blah my royal subjects the Leprechauns and their magical powers blah blah blah....

But the fact is they don't. The Earth is round, therefore the shadows travel in the way you see them, start long, get shorter towards noon, then after noon the get long in the other direction until sunset.

Which shadows do you speak of? The ones produced by the celestial bodies?

Shadows cast by objects, like you, when you stand in the sunlight. If you notice the shadows during the day, they start long pointing west, then they get shorter until noon, when they are virtually underneath you, then they start lengthening when they go east as the sun sets.

um...no...only if you were standing at the north pole on the....northern equinox (crap..forgot it  ::)  ). which works in both RE and FE models

um, in FE theory, yes. Take a lamp, put an object of a circular table (near the edge) and move the light in the same fashion as the sun travels in FE theory, the shadow travels around the object in a circle. (Although, at the summer equinox, at noon the shadow would fall directly below you)

And how would we see the an object's shadow at midnight?

Oh go and see my argument in "The FE sun is impossible", then make up some bullshit to explain it then come back and ask that question again. We can't measure a shadow at midnight, because we are facing away from the sun on the ROUND earth.

The little experiment I have just stated proves that you should be able to measure it on the FE model. And don't quote Snell's law, you don't it enough injustice.

no, the sun is a very selective spotlightm si it doesnt happen like that, thats why the FE model gets night

No, the sun is a sphere, His Majesty said so, or has it changed back again?

No, it would only move in a circle if you stood at the centre of the sun's circular motion, ie the North Pole, fo everyone else it would pass from east to west

regardless of its shape, it is a reflective spotlight, which hits the FE selectively too create a 24 hour day

His Majesty says the sun shines in all directions, and the reason we get night is because of magical superefraction, which does not work. The shadow would move in a circle as long as you are within the circular path of the FE sun, you don;t have to be at the centre, the closer you are to the orbital path of the sun the more your shadow would stretch/shrink during the 24-hour daylight, but it would still be circular.
Until you solidify the actual shape of the FE sun and how night works, instead of constantly changing it, then we can settle this shadows debate. I had an image but imageshack won;t let me uload it

(BTW, only one 'o' in to)
