so the sun "orbits" 3000 km up without going under to the other side. and the radius of the flat earth thing cant be more than 10000 km. so how come the sun sets?
tf?

FE belief is that it is an optical illusion probably played on by defraction or some other property of light.

The laws of natural perspective actually, but yeah, well said.

so, how exactly does the suns light diffract to cause this? it is certainly impossible without refraction.

It doesn't defract or refract (well, it does but this process is irrelevant in terms of sunrise/set).

Here's the section of E:NaG that explains natural perspective. It starts out as a disproof of "why does my hull sink before my mast" but if you scroll down a bit you'll find a discussion of natural perspective which is related to the current topic.
