What is the best evidence for a globe shaped Earth?

Quote from: Warren Williamson
What is the best evidence for a globe shaped Earth?
There are a number of ways to demonstrate the Earth is roughly spherical and spinning without ever leaving the ground, but Iím not confident most proponents of a flat Earth would be bothered with verifying these things for themselves.

We need something BIG; something relevant to peopleís lives; something which the average person cannot dismiss.

I choose hurricanes, typhoons, and all manner of tropical cyclone. These things are BIG. Imagine the combined nuclear arsenal of all the powers on Earth, detonating. Multiply that by two or three. A hurricane can release that much energy in a single day. It would be a pretty damned hard thing to fake. Itís a difficult argument to make that we could possibly be directing them, either with Tesla fields or HAARP or directed energy weapons or magnets or pick your favourite instrument of conspiracy theorists. That would be the U.S. government versus 13 000 megatons of energy released per day! If your friend does make that argument, Iím sorry but heís committed to his belief system and nothing will change that.

And relevant? You betcha. Tens of millions of Americans and Latin Americans alone experienced them firsthand this year. Tens or hundreds of millions more watched daily from their screens with some combination of morbid curiosity, fascination, and concern.

So the pitter patter of rain droplets from the sky means that the Earth is a Soccerball.  ::)

How else would Coriolis create spinning masses of air?

Idiot! Those hurricanes and the typhoons that hit China were no pitter patter of rain droplets.

Ignorant people can learn, but brainless idiots simply ridicule what they don't understand.

Moon rocks.
By that I don't mean that the moon rocks

But that the moon rocks brought back by USA and USSR
Can't be faked on earth.

If you believe they can be faked
Then do it.

And good luck.
Show me a Flat Earth map that works.

I think the best evidence for a globe earth is actually evidence against a flat earth.  Flights from Santiago Chile to Sydney Australia.  Ask any flat earther about this and they will avoid the question as if it were the plague.  This flight, or really any non stop flight between Australia/South America/Africa is really the best way to disprove a flat earth therefor proving a globe shaped earth.  This topic has been discussed a few times on this site and never has any flat earther been able to explain this.

I can trump all of you. The best evidence for a round earth is two axes of celestial rotation, one north, one south. It can be verified by any individual able to travel, it requires no equipment to observe, and can be at least partly witnessed by every person on earth.

Well come to think of it. The conspiracy providing shills on internet forums 24/7 is pretty damning evidence that they want you to believe it is a globe. If it is really a globe, why would they bother?

I don't need to travel to see the Southern one and there is so much written about the Northern one so it would be impossible to convince me that the pizza thingo is the earth.

The globe model matches what you're told it matches and nothing more than that.

You are simply reliant on what you are schooled into and you have absolutely no physical proof to back any of it up.

Ok Rab, let's grab the tools and all the unlimited funds.
Ok I'm ready for you to take me to or show me directly what you absolutely know about your supposed globe and its verification.

Where do we go or what do we do?

You're claiming it doesn't match what is observed in some way. When asked to back up that claim you deflect. Lay it out. What part of the model that is reliant upon a globe Earth, doesn't match what is observed? Your claim carries no weight when you present no evidence.

The round earth model shows how the sun and moon can rise, travel across the sky and set, just like we see every day.  It also shows that the moon can eclipse the sun and the earth can eclipse the moon, which are also seen on a regular basis.  The round earth model even tells us how to get from one side of the world to the other relatively efficiently and is used daily by international commerce.

What does the flat earth model show us?

Once again deflecting without providing evidence that the earth is flat.  Arent you the "pilot" that said the earth is in fact flat yet, for some reason not able to give any kind of reason why a B747 can make it from Santiago to Sydney.  Yeah, i thought so, just like all flat earthers, your once again full of shit.

I hardly think you can refute the evidence for a globe Earth if you canít even cope with the concept of constant acceleration........
