I've got a few technical questions for you flat earthers
« on: January 15, 2015, 02:36:02 PM »
Ok here come the questions. Please answer with legitimate answers, not "confirmation needed" or some crap.

If the earth is flat why can you not see infinitely far or an ice wall when on a boat or plane over the ocean?

How do you explain the horizon line?

Why can you not see the same stars from any where on earth?

How do tides work if the moon doesn't exert gravity on the earth?

Why would the idea of a spherical earth ever stay if it was not proven by millions of tests from 200 years ago till today.

Why is the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge built to compensate for the curvature of the earth? http://web.mta.info/bandt/html/veraz.html

If you do not believe what you cannot personally verify why do you believe this theory?

Do you believe that any and all modern scientists are working for the government?

Is anyone who doesn't believe your theory and has evidence for a spherical earth working for the government?

I called it the government in the last questions but who is "trying to make us believe the earth is spherical" and for what purpose? Believing in a spherical earth does no harm to anyone.

Why is there an extremely overwhelming majority of people who have personally been around the earth than who have seen a massive ice wall or something?

If the society or government who wants us to believe in a spherical earth has all this power over people to make them lie and say the earth is spherical why don't they shut you the fuck down immediately?

I will answer all of your questions easily.

Because the earth is round.

I think the last two questions are very interesting. If the earth was flat, there would be no reason to try and hide it.

In fact, all of your questions are excellent. I await the first reply from a flat-earther. The only one that can be debunked is the Narrows Bridge; as far as I can tell, that figure isn't from measurement, but from calculation based on a spherical earth assumption. It can't be used as proof, but I am 100% certain that if someone measured it, it would be correct.

The oft-mentioned Narrows Bridge towers separation is simply an urban legend created by Gay Talese, a cub reporter for the New York Times in 1964.....  Its monumental 693 foot high towers are 1 5/8 inches farther apart at their tops than at their bases because the 4,260 foot distance between them made it necessary to compensate for the earth's curvature.

The distance between the towers is varying constantly due to both dynamic and static loadings.  It also varies between daytime and nighttime, and during summer and winter.  The towers—and the entire structure—were designed and constructed as if the earth were flat... irony at its best LOL.

Ok fine ignore that one question.
