please explain sunsets. one may assume the sun is under the earth, but that doesn't seem to correlate with the other diagrams i've seen.

Due to the lens effect of the dome and the difference in refractive index of light moving in different layers, the sun that appears further away and downside of from where it is located causes the eye to be mistaken as if it was going below ground level with the last refraction of light in atmoflat. we call it as sun setting.

Just out of curiosity, is the sun inside the dome, outside the dome or part of the dome?  Has the refractive index of those different layers been measured?  Can you provide a drawing showing the relationship between the sun, the dome and how the sunset effect is achieved?

Since the refractive index of those different layers have not been measured, hence the drawing showing the relationship between the sun, the dome and how the sunset effect is achieved may not be true. we have a responsibility not to provide false information. We are not nasa. therefore we can't do that.

Let's try and remember what is and is not acceptable in Q&A folks.

Welcome to Flat Earth Q&A. This board is a place where you can ask questions about Flat Earth Theory. Please note that questions about Flat Earthers, the Flat Earth Society and The Conspiracy do not relate to Flat Earth Theory itself, so please keep them in Flat Earth General.

Most of you probably have many questions to ask, but before you start a new thread, stop and think for one moment:

  • Is my question the sort that naturally springs to mind when faced with a theory like Flat Earth Theory?
  • Is it likely that other people would think of the same question?
  • Is it a sensible questioning of the theory behind Flat Earth?

If your answer is "yes" to any of the above, then read along. These boards have been in existence since 2004, so your question has most likely been asked before. The very first thing you should do is to read the FAQ. FAQ stands for Frequently Asked Questions. The FAQ is quite informative, and will give you a basic understanding of Flat Earth Theory. So, please read it and save us the hassle!

In addition, it is highly recommended that you use the search function to find other relevant responses to your question. You can also check the Flat Earth Wiki for more technical and detailed explanations.

If your question has never been asked before, or if your question is commonly asked but you aren't satisfied with the answers, feel free to post it and we will try our best to answer it. Please, however, refrain from creating threads to ask questions already included in the FAQ repeatedly, as doing so will only result in them being locked or deleted and you directed to it instead.

This forum is subject to the Forum Rules. Please help us to keep the site in order by using the forums as intended and creating your topics in the correct forum. Thank you.

**Update 2014.07.17**
Flat Earth Q&A's format is shifting a bit. To limit the number of debates arising in our Q&A forum, questions will only be answered by flat-earthers or those providing genuine flat-earth responses. Asking questions is still open for anyone, but starting debates, using questions to start debates, or posting disingenuously will be considered low content / off-topic posting and will be treated as such.
Time remaining until MafiaBird daybreak:

For as much as you put me down, I'm glad to see you using my theory.

I'm not sure I totally follow the dome refraction explanation of a sunset. 

Even if it's not totally true, could you provide a best guess of the drawing?  Just as a model.  It's clear you have something in mind, and a drawing would really help clear it up.  You don't have to claim that it's 100% accurate, it's fine for it to be just a crude sketch of what you're thinking of.
You are asking me to defend flat earth by providing non religious, non conspiratorial and non alternative sources, and you know damn well that I can't do that
