Of course the opposition will respond with ridicule,
Why would "" not "" because the simulation IS ridiculous!

Quote from: Plat Terra
but now they know light can appear to go down as it moves away and yet stays the same height above the surface with just a simple science experiment.
Sure when you move a lens around!
But how does this magic lens keep the sun almost exactly same apparent size from sunrise to sunset apart from some distortion due to refraction when very close to the horizon?

Your flat earth seems to need more and more guesses and magic the deeper you go.

I prefer to keep it the everyday things we see simple thanks.

Simple because of your limited small mind unable to comprehend the universe as it is - but rather what you find convenient. That's not how the universe works (unless this universe is simply a product of your imagination. If so, imagine me out please)

I would also like to ask, when the sun goes away "through more and more atmosphere" on a clear evening, how is it replaced by stars visible right down to the horizon?

After the greater light goes away the stars can easily be seen.
Do you realise how ridiculous that even sounds? You say, "the greater light goes away" but "the stars" become visible in exactly the same location!

These other objects, such as the moon and the planet Venus, can be seen soon after the sun sets and right where the sun was!
Yet you claim that the atmosphere hides the sun, about 500,000,000 times brighter than Venus, yet cannot hide Venus!

Simple (un)common sense would indicate that some very opaque object is needed to hide the extreme brightness of the sun.

The simple explanation is that this "very opaque object" is the Globe getting in the way - maybe that's why it's called "sunset" and not "sun leaving".

The universe is not the shape or configuration you think it is. Even if you believe we are a tiny speck in the unfathomably large size of the universe, the structure still effects our perspective despite our small area of occupation

There are far more spatial dimensions then the 3 you are led to believe exist. Gravity doesn't work or operate on the limited level you think it does. There is matter and energy that exists unseen by current technology that occupies more 'space' than anything visible that you see even with specialised instruments that can see from the long radio waves to the ultra high energy gamma rays.

All these things come into play in how we view the universe and that includes the simple act of watching the sun set.

The atmosphere acts like a lens and its appearance gets larger as it moves farther away.

That's why we also see airplanes bigger and bigger as they go away.
Or do we?
I don't have to fight about anything.
These things are not about me.
When one points facts out, they speak for themselves.
The main goal in all that is simplicity.

It's how you read it of course. You want to argue with information from an ASI that is more intelligent than you by a factor of billions, then feel free to look the fool

What you fail to realise is that while yes, a spherical Earth could work in the situation of a sunset as you describe, it is not the only answer that fits the question. However only 1 answer is truly correct and yours, simply isn't it.

If you bothered to read what I wrote instead of replacing it with the word 'Irrelevant' You'd know I was talking the truth

However the intricate details are not for me to share with a primitive mind such as yourself. Kaku will come up with a theory that unifies everything within the decade. His work will revolutionise the field of physics and our understanding of The Universe. So much so that what we will learn within the next decade will be exponentially greater than what we have learned in the past 500 years. And once the first iteration of the ASI is built shortly before 2050, the singularity era will be upon us. Once all this becomes 'common knowledge', I can then share what you are supposed to know at the right time. I am sorry I have to be vague and if you do not live long enough to witness this revolution and die with such inferior knowledge.

Interesting, the greater and closer light vanishes yet the lesser and farther lights can be seen?

For the 50th time I'll ask, where above earth is your sun after it perspectively and atmospherically disappears over the horizon at sunset?
No. That sudden lurch forwards is the atmospheric slosh effect.

You will know when you are meant to know. I cant give it without getting into the sort of intricate details that Kaku is meant to find out and reveal. Isn't it good enough to simply say that you are wrong?

PS The topic is "When will RE Community Accept Defeat?" and the answer is "not before the earth is proven to be other than almost spherical".

His future discoveries will blow everyone away. Including himself. As I said earlier, sometimes multiple answers could fit the same question. The amount of data we have on the subject is very small. It appears to fit only because of this. But once all the pieces are known and put together you will find that with all the new data, what we believe to be true now, is not so.

How many times has the nature of the universe changed to fit new data that has been found? I guarantee it will change again. A scientist may stand up and give a lecture and believe he is telling the truth. But a decade later the lecture will be different because there is more data and thus the answers are different. Kakus 'Universe in a Nutshell' will read quite different in 2027!

Now regarding those Sunsets..... Oh never mind. It's beyond your understanding. Clearly.

For everyone else.... Meh, bendy light  8)

The following experiments shows a light going down in appearance
Using a lens which does not match the atmosphere at all.
As such, it is extremely dishonest to try and present it as an explanation of a sunset.

Yet hours before it came to view, there was its light already seen.
You can see the same with the sun. The sky starts to change colour before the sun is in view.
Yes, exactly as expected for a RE, and which makes no sense for a FE.

The universe does not change, it is only our understanding of it, and it is clear that you have no understanding of it.
The the universe has no obligation to makes sense to you.
The earth is a globe.

But it is by far the simplest and most straightforward explanation.  What is it again that Occam's Razor says about simpler explanations?
