I don't see it. And remember, I think there should be some kind of visible curvature at certain heights. I don't see it here.

Then this isn't 'at a certain height'.  It's too low-altitude to show significant curvature.

Trolling makes me angry.

I love how you pathetic hipocrites always avoid the "It's as photoshopped/untrue as a NASA image" comment.

This is irrelevent. If you like, assume that it is photoshopped. Now tell me, does this 'photoshopped' image contain visible curvature or not? I say it doesn't.

He's not lying.  The US military is a known member of the conspiracy and Wardogg is a member of the US military.  He may or may not be in on the conspiracy, but he does work for a known agent of the conspiracy.

The atmospherics, on the right hand of the superb photo, prevent a definite answer.

I must say though the horizon looks very straight.
My I.Q. is 85. Or was it 58?

Im not sure what that is....maybe part of a smoke mask i think...or maybe a flight bag....where in the photo was it?

It's in the place on the photo where I enhanced it, I haven't moved it. Just enhanced that area.

Do you know how freaking BIG the earth is? If you look at a cat by observing the molecules on it's nose, you can say it's a glob of molecules, but they form to be a cat.

The earth is so big, it only seems flat.

I've been on a Concorde before, and I SAW the curvature of the earth out those microscopic windows.

*Btw, Frozen Berries, NASA is supposedly faking every photo they make, so yours doesnt really help Round Earthers



That so faked? I didn't take it, but it looks like what I saw. Earth so flat there?

So have I. As a photographer (retired) I did a lot of airmiles. 

Didn't you notice the windows bowed slightly outwards on the outer pane. The two panes working in close proximity can lead to an approximation of a plano-convex lens which in turn leads to barrel distortion resulting in a perceived curve in any horizontal plane.

Worth considering?
Hang on, I'll just check my personal care factor for this week : nope still don't give a fuck.

Did you also see curvature on the ground? If the window was distorting a straight line, it would also distort straight lines on the ground, not just very high up.

It is possible to stand at sea level and, depending on the focal length of the lens distort the horizon to almost 180 degrees curvature.

Edge aberration is sometimes an issue in cheaper lenses but it doesn't detract that you can manipulate the appearance of the horizon depending on the set up of groups of lenses within a given focal point.

I asked a very specific question, and you did not answer it.

It's funny how pictures are evidence for flat earth theory when they don't show obvious curvature. But when they do show obvious curvature and are evidence for a round earth, they're fake or they magically fit into FET because the earth actually looks round but it's not or something.

Now what if I said that surfaces of any shape look flat up close, would you believe me? Wait...that's a fundamental principle in calculus!

I now believe I may be wrong.  No cockpit windscreen could produce such a non-distorted reflection of a pilot's mask, as any sloped windshield would show a reflection of the dashboard.  I apologise for my rudeness, as you are right in saying that I can't really know what I'm seeing.

With regard to the flat horizon.  Both round earth and flat earth models predict a curved limit of sunlight.  For round earth, the curvature is caused by the roundness of the earth, for flat earth it is caused by the roundness of the spotlight area where the sun shines.  So the picture of a straight horizon does not prove a flat earth, but that your altitude is not great enough to be able to see the curvature in either model.

You were merely stating an observation, which is fine.  The best part is that you accepted you were wrong through logical analysis, etc, which automatically makes you better than most, if not all, FE'ers.
