you like Roger are full of bull.luchnia wrote:Here is a simple test anyone can do. Take a high power flashlight and look at it from a distance. Does it look round? Nah, didn't think so - just a bright light and shaped depending on the lens diffusing it and the intensity of the light. Now try to describe the physical shape of the flashlight? Nah, thought so, can't do it.
Now point the flashlight upwards where all you can see is the light and see if the source appears round to you from a distance. Nah, thought so. Now take a bright light and shine toward the flashlight and see if it appears as a circle. Nah, thought so again. Now take a fish eye lens and look at the flashlight that is pointing upward with the light shining upward and see if it appears as a round circle. Nah again. Now take a ball and shine a light from a distance at the ball. How does it appear? Now look at it through a fish eye lens. Now take a flat circle and shine a light on it. Yep, thought so. Trying to fit a square peg in a round hole can be quite the challenge.
Oh well, what will we banter about next :D Sometimes keeping it simple is the easiest way instead of explaining things in a thousand different ways.
Hey dude...I do not propose the earth is flat, nor any other planet for that matter. The whole entire point of that post is showing that if the earth were flat, we would be able to tell. It would not take rocket science - just some few simple test.
Like this one and many, many others...

Graybeard Mountain, is 34 miles behind Fryingpan Mountain. This view would be impossible if the earth were a sphere of the size that is claimed. Graybeard Mountain would be 770 feet below the horizon and out of sight behind Fryingpan Mountain if the earth were a globe.
Pinnacle and Bald Knob would be even more impossible to view in this line of sight.
Not to mention simply trusting the Bible.
