Maybe he didnt know thr mechanics of it all.
From what i gathered he was asking someone to dig a 200ft hole.

Maybe plata doesnt know jow to survey.
Two guys start at the beach holding survey sticks.
They slowly leap frogging inland.
One point is recorded in relation to the last.
So the end, they have an estimated ft above sea level.

This is a bit off topic , but it is related to surveying.
I took a course in " Elementary Plane Surveying " in Junior College.
The Lab part of the course was in the actual use of surveying instruments
The Lab was divided into 2 men teams.
You started from a point in a quadrangle on the campus and took measurements as you surveyed to a bench mark and then back to your starting point.
You were supposed to get the same elevation at the same place from where you started.
As I remember this was quite a long Lab exercise.
Stick close , very close , to your P.C.and never go to sea
And you all may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Look out your window , see what you shall see
And you all may be Rulers of The Flat Earth Society

Chorus:
Yes ! Never, never, never,  ever go to sea !

Yeah, and I would be ashamed of myself for claiming and defending that blunder. I know they now claim it's the columns but anything can be tweaked to give people a illusion or thought of a Globe. Your bridge means and proves nothing, except it does prove if Earth were a Globe all bridges would be engineered for Globe curvature and not a gimmick one.



I couldn't care less if "the curvature of the earth was taken into account when designing the bridge". Maybe it was but any difference would not show in a photo like that!

But you say "the water is supposed to curve with the bridge". Why? A bridge does not curve like that to follow the earth's curvature - there is no connection!

Even if the water was "supposed to curve" there is no way it would be visible in a photo like that.

As I have stated numerous times, the horizon from a low altitude should look (almost exactly) straight and horizontal.

So your claim "maybe there was an issue with gravity when the photo was made" is simply ludicrous.

You ignored the explanation of the straight horizon all the other times, so let's try again:
On a sphere, the water horizon is a circle all 360į around the observer and from a low altitude that circle is seen edge-on so looks almost exactly straight.[/i]

But even if the horizon did curve with the radius of the earth we could use the famous ::) 8" x (miles square) formula to work out the drop either side of the centre in that photo.

The "the Verrazano-Narrows bridge is 13700 feet long" so half the length is 6850' or 1.3 miles.
So the water at each end might be lower than the water in the middle by a whole 8" x 1.32 = 13.5".

No one in their right mind would suggest that we could see a 13.5" deviation from straight in a distance of 13700 feet!

So your meme, as are all the others, totally ridiculous.

There is no curvature engineered into the Panama Canal. But when you add curvature it becomes flooded.






This is why you're a flat Earther.  You don't understand the subject you're arguing about.  85ft above sea level, means it's 85 feet above sea level.

The problem is you don't even understand what you are trying to debunk. If you did, you wouldn't keep spouting all that

And just like a kid with fingers in his ears singing "la la la la I can't hear you" you refuse to listen to explanations.

In a spherical world engineers would include curvature in their engineering profiles and drawings. Are you seeing it yet?

Just to give you a sense of scale, the red line in the top box and the inset represents the full length of the Panama Canal in relation to the size of Earth and the degree to which there is curvature present for such a short distance.

What don't you understand about the words "sea level"? Why are you replacing that term with "underground plane"? There is no such thing. Otherwise everything on the planet when expressed as height would be, "X feet above the 'underground plane'". That literally makes no sense. Do you say that Mt Everest is "29,000 feet above the underground plane"?

Do you really not understand the globe model?

You are wildly misinterpreting Macario's original image and applying some sort of bizarre near logic to it. Globe model:



Gatun is 85' above SEA LEVEL not above an "underground plane".

Are you being cheeky or do you really have no concept as to how the globe model works?

No, I used his words in his Model Earth drawing and used his drawing. I noticed you removed his words and that plane line. Why?

The elevations are not measured from any "underground plane connecting ocean coaslines".
Why would you suggest that when the diagram shows sea-level extending in a continuous curve from the Pacific to the Atlantic oceans?

Can't you even read the diagram of the "Profile and Yardage Estimate" you posted? All elevations are measured from Mean Sea Level, look!

Look at the "Mean Sea Level" near the bottom left!

In spherical world engineers measure from Mean Sea Level.
Not from some imaginary straight line underground.
Not from some point 18 miles away.

Engineers know that builders will measure from Mean Sea Level as well.
Not from that imaginary straight line.

For that straight line nobody cares in reality.
It means nothing.

Mean Sea Level is the level where the water would be if there was no land there.

You replied to these words "In a spherical world engineers would include curvature in their engineering profiles and drawings." Your reply has nothing to do with what I wrote in bold.

But you measured from the imaginary straight line, for your Globe Earth Model to show how much surface curvature there should be between oceans and where to place sea level (at 216') and where to place Gatun Lake.  Did you forget about this? See what you posted in the following link.

Oh, I see, many are mad because I used Macarios' Globe Earth model drawing of curvature pertaining to the Canal and used his words as a tool to debunk a Globe.

Interesting!

We have no problem to solve. You have!

But curvature of any landmass is rather useless because landmasses have so many "ups and downs" that 216' in 36 miles would never be noticed.

And the curvature across place like Lake Pontchartrain have been demonstrated often enough.

And there's plenty more if you really want to be shown that water does really "curve".

You said yes to "verifying the surface curvature of any landmass or canal" but gave a different argument. So I assume you can't do it?

Boats going over a alleged curve is a different issue. Some don't understand the science behind a surface mirage. You know, that image that heat and humidity creates near a flat surface and blocks the view?

Please stay on topic.

And I suggest in the mean time, you actually learn how curvature and elevation work.  "Sea-level" is an elevation of 'zero' that follows Earth's curvature through land, not an elevation that runs in a straight tangent between coasts.

You lose.

What's your next question that you don't understand?
