After you have read that, watch this - and please explain to me how you plan to debunk this simple experiment

Watch "A video showing the curvature of the earth" on YouTube

The sea level is simply higher than the surface he is standing on. Also, if the Earth was round, i'm not sure if you could see the curvature from that distance, the island isn't that far away from him.

What? That would mean he is standing in water. .....if the camera and island is above water this seems there is curvature. Your answer. .....well isn't really an answer

The laws of perspective make it so that things that are relatively large but very far away can be blocked by things that are relatively small, yet much closer.  Wave peaks between the camera and the island simply block part of the island.  When you get a little higher, you can see over more of the wave peaks.  Also, refraction is more prominent the closer one is to the water level.

Thank you. That makes sense
