Round earth experiment
« on: September 05, 2016, 04:57:56 AM »
The following sub 7 min video shows a little experiment regarding the curvature. Using a telescope and measuring the amount of buildings obscured by the curvature from THREE different locations, there are two perfect matches and one with minimal error.



The experiment shows that expected part of a building being hidden matches globe.

You can't argue if it maches FE expectations, because... What are FE expectations anyway? Are they math based or hand-wave based?

The earth is not completely flat but usually is. Somewhere flat, somewhere curve, somewhere reverse curve, somewhere threshold. The local measurements does not prove anything because opposite is true too. Our measurements show us it is almost flat.

Those measurements were done across the sea, where nothing but waves disturbs the surface.

What measurements? Details will be nice.

No need for details. We already know them.

Measurement is done by "Dr" Raw Bottom and few of his followers when they
wait for the moment of convenient temperature distribution in the air above Bedford River.

Might be that your brain is flat, too. You know, like a flat tire. Not useful anymore :(
