Just have a look at these screens, both taken at the same objective zoom:

Oh, so 1000km is approximately the same as 200km in different places. How very peculiar. As you can see, it's the RE model that's inconsistent, not only with reality, but even with itself!
A round Earth is a geographical impossibility. That is all.

Ok, when you take the surface of a sphere, pick two spots on opposite sides of the sphere as the poles, make a cut from one to the other, peel it off, and then try to lay it out flat, the equator will be the only part not stretched.  The poles will be stretched out the most.  Everything in between will be stretched farther and farther the closer it is to the top and bottom of this distorted image.

Now lets go to google maps (I prefer google earth when I look at the earth, not google maps) and look at the scale.  1000km at the equator.  Ok, now pan north or south keeping the zoom the same.  The scale is now changing to compensate for the stretching of the latitude (longitude lines are being spread out until they run parellel) and the measured distance along lines of latitude become less unless you zoom out, because what happens when you stretch a picture?  You're basically zooming in.

If you're saying that, the change is actually proof of round earth. It shows that the flat diagram is distorted, consistent with RET
You're right. If I'm saying that, it is so, indeed. Hint: I am not saying that.

then, if you look at it, it shows that light shines everywhere at once.
No.

the rest of the posts are without evidence.
I agree, your claims are completely unsupported.

You're basically zooming in.
No, I'm not. Perhaps you are, but that's your problem, not mine.

Yes, you are.

Put a map or satellite photo...oh wait, aerial photo (I forgot FE'rs don't believe in satellites) with a distance scale on something stretchable, and then stretch it.  The image becomes bigger, and the distance you're looking at in a fixed viewing area becomes less as the scale itself becomes bigger.  (this is what's happening on google maps the closer you get to the poles from the equator)

Now take that same image, and zoom in.  The image becomes bigger, and the distance you're looking at in a fixed viewing area becomes less as the scale itself becomes bigger.

Yes, I already saw it for myself on google maps panning north or south from the equator without touching the zoom adjustment.

what's funny about bendy light is that it actually makes sense given two things- nubmer one, it refracts the opposite way people say it does- and number two-  light has mass and is effected by gravity. XD

Why would it refract the opposite way? That would make no sense.
Also, light does get affected by "gravity". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravitational_lensing

because if it refracts the way people on this site have explained it, it would appear that the flat earth was a bowl. you would be able to see any point within it from any other point.

and yes, but i mean that it would accelerate downward at roughly 10m/s/s like physical objects. rather then the pretty much neglible effects it normally has

Windows media player files are able to be read with freely available software from sources other than Microsoft. As Parsifal knows only too well, but which would be inconvenient for him to mention in this context. He might like to try Miro since it's open source and non-profit.

This is the unsupported portion of your argument.

BTW, esteemed Brother Mad James claims to have a high powered astronomical telescope, which is likely to be equipped with setting circles. Ask him nicely and he can verify that they do indeed work. As can I, for I too have one. However that would be a problem for you, because it wouldn't give you the answer you want, so your response will be to say the word of other people cannot be trusted. (In which case, never get on a bus or a train again, because you only have somebody's word that it's going where they say it is.) In summary: either take my word for it, or never travel by public transport again.
Additional: there are almost certainly amateur astronomy clubs in your vicinity, who will be able to give you a FREE personal demonstration of setting circles.

Having read more than three posts by Parsifal is enough, turning it from assumption to verified fact based on statistical data.

Unfortunately, your diagram is irrelevant because Universal Acceleration doesn't cover every effect of gravity, rendering it a useless method for explaining regular occurrences on a flat Earth, and thus rendering your diagram useless.

Statistically speaking, the idiots that use statistics without understanding what statistics is tend to be non-scientists.

The argument made here has no value as a statistical analysis whatsoever.

Nobody addresses the diagram because there is nothing in it, just the same old bendy light argument that has been disproved so many times. Make some predictions based on "bendy light" and then there will be a reason to address your concerns.

This is the typical argument of someone who has never used a telescope with an equatorial mount. If you set your mount correctly you will be able to track a star or nebula, for example, almost from the horizon at the East to the horizon at the West of your location, all through the night.

All flat Earth models discussed in this forum fail to predict this very precise path of the stars, which can be tracked with a telescope with a rather simple mount. If the few remaining flat earthers all decided to buy a telescope with an equatorial mount and learned to use it correctly, the whole FES would disappear.

So now you have your answer. The very fact that stars can be traced with an accuracy of well under 1 degree in both azimuth and right ascension through the correct use of an equatorial mount totally demolishes every FE "theory" in this forum.
