Okay, unless you can explain these photos, the Earth must be a sphere.

The surface of the sea appears to rise up to the level or altitude of the eye; and that at a certain distance, less or greater, according to the elevation of the observer, the line of sight and the surface of the water appear to converge to a "vanishing point," which is in reality "the horizon." If this horizon were formed by the apparent junction of two perfectly stationary parallel lines, it could, as before stated, be penetrated by a telescope of sufficient power to magnify at the distance, however great, to which any vessel had sailed. But because the surface of the sea is not stationary, the line of sight must pass over the horizon, or vanishing point, at an angle at the eye of the observer depending on the amount of "swell" in the water. This will be rendered clear by the following diagram, fig. 85.



Let C, D, represent the horizontal surface of the water. By the law of perspective operating without interference from any local cause, the surface will appear to ascend to the point B, which is the horizon, or vanishing point to the observer at A; but because the water undulates, the line A, B, of necessity becomes A, H, S, and the angular direction of this line becomes less or greater if the "swell" at H increases or diminishes. Hence when a ship has reached the point H, the horizon; the line of sight begins to cut the rigging higher and higher towards the mast-head, as the vessel more and more recedes. In such a position a telescope will enlarge and render more visible all that part of the rigging which is above the line A, H, S, but cannot possibly restore that part including the hull, which is below it. The waves at the point H, whatever their real magnitude may be, are magnified and rendered more obstructive by the very instrument (the telescope), which is employed to make the objects beyond more plainly visible; and thus the phenomenon is often very strikingly observed, that while a powerful telescope will render the sails and rigging of a ship beyond the horizon H, so distinct that the different kinds of rope can be readily distinguished, not the slightest portion of the hull, large and solid as it is, can be seen. The "crested waters" form a barrier to the horizontal line of sight as substantial as would the summit of an intervening rock. And because the watery barrier is magnified and practically increased by the telescope, the paradoxical condition arises, that the greater the power of the instrument the less can be seen with it.

cikljamas, try to make a cogent argument yourself for once instead of parroting that idiot Rowbotham.

Aside from anything else that moron is rambling on about ships, sails and rigging.  We are looking at skyscrapers - so it's totally irrelevant handwaving.

Cikljamas, in your diagram, there is clear curvature between the observer and the lighthouse.

But anyway, if you are really convinced the earth is flat, can you please explain the equality of daylight in both hemiplanes?

Let's focus on the skyscapers for now. The explanation Rowbotham gave is not really meaningful. It is not perspective. It can't be. In fact, what he wrote reminds me of the tactic used by modern-day trolls. It doesn't make any sense really, but it is seemingly abstruse.

Never thought of it like that,  Rowbotham was really a troll.    Makes perfect sense.

Back to the skyscrapers,  it should be possible to do a rough calculation of the earth's curvature from those pictures.

In order to be able to see just the very top of these mountains, they should be at least 8000 m high!!! And we see much more than just the very top of these mountains (with naked eyes)!




Wiki quote:
Quote
Salt flats are ideal for calibrating the distance measurement equipment of satellites because they are large, stable surfaces with strong reflection, similar to that of ice sheets. As the largest salt flat on Earth, Salar de Uyuni is especially suitable for this purpose. In the low-rain period from April to November, due to the absence of industry and its high elevation, the skies above Salar de Uyuni are very clear, and the air is dry (relative humidity is about 30%; rainfall is roughly 1 millimetre or 0.039 inches per month). It has a stable surface which is smoothed by seasonal flooding (water dissolves the salt surface and thus keeps it leveled).

As a result, the variation in the surface elevation over the 10,582-square-kilometer (4,086 sq mi) area of Salar de Uyuni is less than 1 meter (3 ft 3 in), and there are few square kilometers on Earth that are as flat. The surface reflectivity (albedo) for ultraviolet light is relatively high at 0.69 and shows variations of only a few percent during the daytime.[6] The combination of all these features makes Salar de Uyuni about five times better for satellite calibration than the surface of an ocean.[4][5][23] Using Salar de Uyuni as the target, ICESat has already achieved the short-term elevation measurement accuracy of below 2 centimeters (0.79 in).

Your calculation is wrong.    You didn't take into account the height of the observer, and you didn't allow for standard atmospheric refraction.   Try again.

And your supposed  200 miles,  is actually  more like 50 km,  which is  only 31 miles.    At that distance you only need the rocky outcrop to be 40 meters high,  not 8000 meters.   

Sloppy work you score  0/10.

In case people do not realise it yet, Silkpajamas and others here are perverts who want to waste your time.

Please do not imagine that Silkpajamas is stupid and will eventually realise he is mistaken.   The only purpose of these creeps is to waste your time.

You also need to understand that others here who engage with Silkpajamas and are apparently totally rational are quite possibly part of the troll fest just to suck you further into their cesspit of insane stupidity.

Personally I came here for an interesting experience.   It is an interesting experience to observe first hand what amounts to criminal behaviour where the only purpose of a troll like cikljamas is to deliberately waste the other persons time.

Possibly the police would be interested in looking into it.  Eventually a person like that is going to get bored with this type of computer 'game' and since the behaviour is already so psychopathic it could eventually lead to a more serious kind of deviant behaviour.

In UK law, trolls can be charged if, for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to another, they send an electronic message which they know is false.

Most countries are going to have similar legislation and prosecutions for trolls are becoming more commonplace.

The Internet Service Providers and the Forums moderators also have some responsibilities to ensure behaviour is kept within the law

If you have a problem with sceptimatic then take it up with him when he uses his name. In the meantime, leave me alone or I will be forced to have you ejected from this forum. Do I make myself clear?

You appear to specialise in making statements for the purpose of annoyance which you know to be false
Leave me alone. I don't know you and I've never corresponded with you, so leave me alone and pester someone else.
Wait till septimatic gains his name back if it's him you want. Until then, leave me out of it.

In case people do not realise it yet, Silkpajamas and others here are perverts who want to waste your time.

Please do not imagine that Silkpajamas is stupid and will eventually realise he is mistaken.   The only purpose of these creeps is to waste your time.

You also need to understand that others here who engage with Silkpajamas and are apparently totally rational are quite possibly part of the troll fest just to suck you further into their cesspit of insane stupidity.
Aren't we all here to waste time?

Personally I came here for an interesting experience.   It is an interesting experience to observe first hand what amounts to criminal behaviour where the only purpose of a troll like cikljamas is to deliberately waste the other persons time.

Possibly the police would be interested in looking into it.  Eventually a person like that is going to get bored with this type of computer 'game' and since the behaviour is already so psychopathic it could eventually lead to a more serious kind of deviant behaviour.

In UK law, trolls can be charged if, for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to another, they send an electronic message which they know is false.

Most countries are going to have similar legislation and prosecutions for trolls are becoming more commonplace.

The Internet Service Providers and the Forums moderators also have some responsibilities to ensure behaviour is kept within the law
If you know that those that argue with them know they are trolling, where is the harm?  Most people here are here to waste time.  Being serious 100% of the time is just plain boring.  Honestly, what did you expect from a flat earth society website?

Scepti, this guy (Aliveandkicking a.k.a. Rayzor) is the biggest troll, liar and psychopath i have ever stumbled upon. Don't bother yourself to exchange your precious words with such an utter scoundrel.

Jroa, Pongo, where are you, don't you think that bastards like these shouldn't be allowed to publish at this forum one single word more than they already did?

Well, i have just one message for this mother fucker (Aliveandkicking & Rayzor) :
You will burn in Hell, and watching your eternal suffering will be my greatest pleasure!!!

I expect confusion, stupidity, ignorance, mental illness and so forth, but I do not expect to find calculating fraudsters who only have one purpose and that is to mislead, misdirect and deliberately set out to waste another persons time.   On the one hand we can say a person is a nutter and unable to be in control of their actions and on the other hand we can say a person is fit to be found criminally liable for  creating annoyance for no purpose at all other than to bait and waste another persons time.

Wishing others to go to hell and saying that you will take pleasure in watching them burn.  Seems like a Christian thing to do right?  Jesus did that kind of thing all the time didn't he?  That is the least Christian thing I have ever heard.  If you are going to say things like that then do us real Christians a favor and don't call yourself a Christian so we don't have the shame of having people like you associated with Christianity.
I am having a video war with Jeranism.
See the thread about it here.

In order to be able to see just the very top of these mountains, they should be at least 8000 m high!!! And we see much more than just the very top of these mountains (with naked eyes)!

Wiki quote:
Quote
Salt flats are ideal for calibrating the distance measurement equipment of satellites because they are large, stable surfaces with strong reflection, similar to that of ice sheets. As the largest salt flat on Earth, Salar de Uyuni is especially suitable for this purpose. In the low-rain period from April to November, due to the absence of industry and its high elevation, the skies above Salar de Uyuni are very clear, and the air is dry (relative humidity is about 30%; rainfall is roughly 1 millimetre or 0.039 inches per month). It has a stable surface which is smoothed by seasonal flooding (water dissolves the salt surface and thus keeps it leveled).

As a result, the variation in the surface elevation over the 10,582-square-kilometer (4,086 sq mi) area of Salar de Uyuni is less than 1 meter (3 ft 3 in), and there are few square kilometers on Earth that are as flat. The surface reflectivity (albedo) for ultraviolet light is relatively high at 0.69 and shows variations of only a few percent during the daytime.[6] The combination of all these features makes Salar de Uyuni about five times better for satellite calibration than the surface of an ocean.[4][5][23] Using Salar de Uyuni as the target, ICESat has already achieved the short-term elevation measurement accuracy of below 2 centimeters (0.79 in).
Ever heard of a sanity check?[nb]I suppose asking this is like asking a blind man about the colors in a photograph.[/nb]

If you simply take the square root of the area of the lake, you get the length of the sides of a square with the same area. In this case it's 103 km (64 miles). How does that compare with your assumed distance partway across it? Conversely, if you envision a square with sides the length of your >200-mile line, it wouldn't even cover the large lobe of that lake, yet its area is >40,000 square miles (200 squared is 40000) - 10 times larger than the reported area of the lake! Clearly something is wrong. Then you check to find out what is wrong - the reported area, your distances, both? Hint: check your "189 miles" between Chita and Randa. It's more like 26 miles.

Nah, just slap some stupid marked-up image in a post and blather inanely about how this proooooovvvves!!! Once again!!! how wrong the spherical earth is. Jeez. Stuff like this really is a waste of time for you and everyone else. Save yourself some humiliation (although that doesn't seem to bother you) and do at least some basic fact checking. But, then again, these things called "facts" aren't important to true flat-earth believers; they're actually quite the nuisance.

If you don't know how to find the square of a number, or use a calculator to find the square root, or know the physical reason for doing so, then you lack the basic knowledge to discuss anything remotely technical, and it's no wonder you fall for what Rowbotham says. He made a living bilking money from unsophisticated people who wanted to think they were superior to everyone else. Don't you think you could do better?
