It's funny how when I prove the Earth is round people ignore me. So now I shall provide you with a simple experiment that will prove the Earth is indeed round. The FAQ says the reason a ship in the ocean will eventually float away from sight isn't because the Earth is round, but it's an optical illusion, because you can't see that far. So here is an experiment to prove you wrong on this. Get a telescope, and get it perfectly set on the horizon. Now get one of your friends to get in a boat and start heading out, or watch someone else who's sailing out. Now, get the telescope in line with the boat, as I stated earlier. Now watch the boat with your eyes, as it starts to slowly move away from sight. Now you can't see it, but try looking in your telescope. Will you see the boat? If the Earth was flat, the telescope, which helps you see farther distances, would help you see the boat. If the Earth was round, however, it wouldn't help at all. Discuss.
the earth is a friggin sphere.

hy are people so stupid? i guess years of satelite evidence can't prove that the earth is round? satelites are a conspiracy? yea that's why we have cell phones and xm radio.

True. Too bad it's not that difficult to prove that the world isn't flat.

Hmm....  So I guess this means the RErs win this round.  So if you're a flat earther, you don't have to worry about being paranoid your whole life.  Believe it or not, this is a good thing, you don't have to think the whole earth is just a big lie.

YOU could, GeoGuy. I just gave all FE'ers a simple experiment. Unless you:

1. Are not open-minded at all, have your heart set on a flat earth and will never NOT believe

2. Do not live anywhere near a large body of water

you can prove the Earth is spherical.

No, you gave an experiment that could potentially be strong evidence against the FE theory. I would hardly say "proof", because if the results are found to be explainable within the parameters of the FE theory, it isn't "Proof" of anything.

Ok, so let's assume that you did the experiment, and you saw what I said would happen (the boat is still out of view). So if that isn't proof, tell me how it could be that way on a flat earth.

No, that's the FE'ers' explanation for how it is normally. I just proved you wrong, and you say it's still an optical illusion? Hehe, that is the kind of answer I was expecting... :roll:

I meant "A reason why it happens on a flat Earth". I just didn't think it would be necessary to make that distinction.

Haha, I have now observed what I guessed would happen. This thread has fallen down, when I have given an easy experiment for all FE'ers to learn the Earth is round. I guess they're too scared to be proven wrong. ;)

Thats the whole point of the argument, everytime it is proven, FE's ignore the evidence. How hasnt the earth been proven round. The whole point of this debate is to show how FE's dont accept any arguments, you have just won RE's this argument geoguy..TY..oh by the way, you still havent answered the question about the telescope.
