How in the hell the diameter of the sun can be measured is a mystery, never mind the distance.

It can be made to fit anything that is guessed at.Mathematics can't be made to fit anything which is guessed at. This shows your lack of understanding of mathematics.Yeah yeah, I've heard it all before. Take a look at your ridiculous globe and planetary calculations to see how they are all made up to fit what they want you to believe.93 million mile distant sun that is 865,000 miles in diameter. And here's people like you just buying into the crap.How in the hell the diameter of the sun can be measured is a mystery, never mind the distance.

Septic To get the distance to the sun you sus out a transit of Venus from a few places on earth on the same day and the do some trig. The size of the sun will be obvious after a bit more trig. Just because you got stoned at school does not mean it ain't been worked out.

You don't need the size of Venus.

Ok, so they don't know how to measure the distance and diameter of venus. That's all I asked.Anyway: so how do they get the suns distance and diameter by watching a little dot (venus) do a transit?

dragonspiral11, be informed that FET is real and TFES exists to undo what RET believers have accumulated over their short span of relevance. The time-line recognizing a flat Earth greatly exceeds that of RET for all the right reasons. It is good you have found the site. To date, you have only been exposed to shovels-full of RET compared to a tweezer-full of FET and are not alone facing this problem. Having been exposed to the same type of RET matter as you I can also inform you that after further research, you will arrive at a better realization of Earth shape like so many others have. Do not be discouraged by the proposals and explanations put forth by REers here until you have equalized with the same levels of FET.

Besides, perhaps FET is a conspiracy too.

It is just the way it is, you understanding it doesn't concern me.

Damn it, I feel such a fool.
