Have you ever been to the ocean and used binoculars to watch a ship disappear in the distance? I have. The only thing you can see in the end is the top of the ship, then it drops down out of sight. The sun does a similar thing. If the Earth was flat, the ship and the sun would get smaller until you could no longer see them. Have you ever seen the sun get smaller when setting? No? Doesn't that tell you something? If the sun is much smaller than scientists say and it's very close to the Earth, it should get smaller as it moves away from your location. It doesn't. That means the Flat Earth theory is a joke. Speaking of the sun, it shines on the bottom of clouds as it sets. How could that happen if the Earth is flat?
Flat Earth proponents talk about how we can see miles farther across the Earth than scientists want us to believe. The Flat Earthers are correct about that. Do you want to know why we can see farther than the official curvature should allow? Do you want to know what NASA is hiding and why they use fisheye lenses when showing the Earth from orbit? They don't want the public to know that the Earth is growing:
NASA uses fisheye lenses to make the Earth look smaller (to make the curvature seem more extreme than it actually is). If the Earth isn't a big ball, it's at least a hemisphere. If Flat Earthers want to be taken seriously by the mainstream, they should move to a hemisphere model. The problem with a hemisphere model is that the Conspiracy: Earth is Growing video at YouTube makes it pretty clear that the Earth has to be a globe for the pieces to fit. The Flat Earthers are right to believe they are being lied to, but they embraced the wrong conspiracy theory.
