Disappearing ships don't mean that the here is a curvature but an optical illusion can take into account.

This is such an elementary subject . This really belongs to be moved to the debate section since I can't mention the real reason on this section of the forum. Post this on the debate section and I will he happy to explain.

I would love to see you explain this with refraction (which makes objects appear higher up then they really are in the case of Earth) or mirages:



Is that a floating city?  Nope, the Earth is just round.

Well, since ships can be observed to disappear bottom-up every single time, there must be some kind of consistent phenomena that can be explained. Since you're the one that brought it up, then please, do explain this optical illusion for us all.

Isn't it odd that sinking ship never tilts.

It is odd. It's almost like the ship isn't actually sinking and is instead going below the horizon.

How do you know it doesn't? How much would you expect it to tilt, and why? What direction would you expect it to tilt, and why?

That video is hilariously stupid.  Lets film stuff on a road with dips throughout it, point out he dips as some backwards reasoning for there being no curvature and then try to say the road is completely flat.  Hell he even said there were some dips in the road, then said there were not.
Yep I place this at the same level, well maybe a little below, Tom's video proof.
Too funny modestman, please bring some more stupid videos, I am enjoying them.

I have to agree whole heartedly with Mikey T.  You covered it pretty well. LOL.

The video doesn't even have anything to do with the horizon. The horizon is where the earth meets the sky. One flat earth idea is that the horizon is at an  infinite distance and just fades away in a blur in the distance. Of course the horizon is always a definite line except when there is a fog or rain or on a dark night.

It might be considered that this is a little ironic, since it is easily proven on the place where the earth looks completely flat. On a calm day at sea when the sea is "like glass."

Naturally the horizon is farther away the higher the observer is located. There is a simple formula for determining the distance to the horizon depending on the height of the observer. I don't know whether the video falls into the old saying of "It's so stupid it's funny" or whether "It's so stupid it's not funny" ?

Like most things, this is one of the easiest flat earth ideas to debunk.

Questions for modestman:
1.Why would it be necessary for crow's nests and radar antennas to be mounted on the highest masts on ships if the earth was flat ?
2.How many persons have ever "recovered a ship that has gone over the horizon with a telescope" ? (Hint: Ask a few sailors.)
(Hint: Because the earth is round....You know.....Like a globe.)

As Mikey T said, modestman, supply us with some more videos. See the first line in my signature line. LOL.
From viewers like us, Thank you !

Not at all.  I have calculated many times that the ship should only tilt a negligible fraction of a degree.

the "curvature" and tilting should be compatible but they are not, that's proof there is no curvature just a optical illusion.

Yes and no modestman, the tilting of any object going over the horizon will match the curvature of the Earth, yet from the frame of reference of an observer the degree of tilt is so small that it would be pretty much indiscernible to the naked eye.  Understand that once beyond the horizon they are not 90 degrees offset from us.  This is where the tilt must be bigger perception comes from. 
The size of the Earth compared to what you can see from ground level is such a difference that it throws many people off when they try to think about what the curvature should look like.

You can't just use the old flat earth word called "denial" . There is curvature and the earth is round. And it is a proven fact. Period.

How many times have you been at sea and observed this, modestman ?

Your ship sinks dramatically at between 15 and 20km from shore, yet when you look at left to right curvature of 100km or more and apply a straight edge to your view there is zero curvature.

Yes, that's what you'd expect on a round earth.  ::)

BTW I've worked out the amount of tilt of any object. An object at 90 degrees to the observer would have to be one quarter of the way round the world, roughly 6,200 miles. This means the object would have to travel 68 miles from the observer to achieve a tilt of one degree. This is why you can't see visible tilting. Easy to work out, and ties in exactly with observation.

Well you certainly are acting like one. You are probably fairly intelligent. I am not calling you an idiot. And I am at least somewhat above the idiot level intelligence wise.

I have no claims for being a genius and having 13 degrees like one flat  earth person.

OK. This is the Flat Earth Society and if you wish to believe the earth is flat that is your problem.

But those of us who know  the earth is a globe like to set the record straight from time to time. It's just too much of a temptation to not remain silent.

I have studied about how the distance to the horizon is calculated. Part of this was in radar theory. And I have been to sea and observed this first hand so I know the earth is round and there is a curvature, etc. And things work accordingly.

Have you ever studied the subject,  been to sea and observed this yourself ?

I just noticed something.

If the horizon were really always at eye level like flat earthers claim, then the only way a boat could disappear below the horizon is for that boat to actually be physically going below the horizon.  This is impossible on a flat Earth.

This is why they claw desperately at ideas like the comical wave swell theory, i.e. even on the flattest sea ever there are swells high enough to hide a 90 foot tall cruise ship. You have to give them credit for sheer balls.

I have posted pictures on this forum in the past of sinking ship at 20km, horizon at sea level and at height with a straight edge.

You would only expect to see the ship tilt left or right if the earth were a cylinder. As it turns out, the earth is actually a spheroid, so the surface curves downwards in all directions no matter where on the planet you are.
