##### How high is the sun?
« on: January 07, 2023, 01:28:44 PM »
Just curious as to whether there is any kind of consensus among flatists as to the altitude of the sun above the flat earth.

And, if so, how high is it and how has this height been determined?

If the sun were 32 miles across and a few thousand miles high the Eratosthenes experiment where you place sticks in the ground at some distance and observe the shadows has the math check out

Thanks for that link. I love his reasoning - "God would not have placed the light far away" !

So, he put it at no more than 3,000 miles. Any other offers?

Calculating this here (LINK), I found that it's about 4400 miles. On the second try, I calculated the average altitude to be 4000 miles. But the distance of 5000 miles appears to be a distance that is generally agreed upon.

This is still not an exact value. The reason for this is that there is a layer of water between the sun and the earth, the thickness of which we do not know, and this layer may cause a different perception of height due to the refraction of the sun's rays.

Simply why is this.

Finding the true height of the sun is not easy due to the layer of water in between, but still, accepting a value between 4000-5000 miles as correct will give the least erroneous result. I think you might have started this thread to troll the believers because you are the sleeper cell. No problem. Finding the truth here may be still possible. The rest is not important. I won't respond to citations, most of them are already on the block list. You're not on the block list but it doesn't matter, This answer is sufficient in every way. Objections are not important.

I hope you got the most appropriate answer from all perspectives.

Thank you for your interesting response O Wise One!

The layer of water is obviously important in this question. Do you think it would be possible to determine its thickness or will that remain forever unknown?

By the way, not trolling at all. I deliberately raised this question in Q&A to avoid any debate.

The answer is not interesting but the true perspective to this question.

Determining the thickness of the water above is possible. We need true sun and hour statistics to do that. Since current statistics have been manip :-[ulated because of various reason, it is seemingly not easy at this stage. But I believe we will.

When ever i hear this question i just think to myself - you are asking for the moon!

theoretical formula for Earths curvature = 8 inches multiplied by (miles squared) = inches drop from straight forward

But that is a point of view largely uninformed of the thinking and teachings of fe.  As for the actual numbers that get mentioned... I understand that some of the fe authors have adressed this, but i wonder if they were just offering some vague idea as an answer to someones, or perhaps a repeated querry or if it is a really the truth. if anyone can answer this i would appreciate. I just think that if the earth was simply  3000 or what ever miles up and the geometry works according to basic known laws - that would really surprize me. Are these things adressed in the several main FE books, or can anyone tell the answer.
