Hold your Globe before a source of light.

Place your index finger where you live (approximately).

Spin the Globe slowly counter-clock as your eye keenly follows your finger to when it first comes in contact (visual) with the source of light -- This is the Sunrise for the round earth.

You will note as you continue to slowly spin the Globe that at the very same spot where you first came in contact with the light will be the same place where it will exist, meaning; where the sun-rose will be the place where the Sun will set, thereby, we would see the Sun setting in our skies at the very same spot we see it rise which of course isn't what most of us see.

Excluded are the science Apprentices and their Priests who wrote their Holy Books.

PROVE ME WRONG

I DARE YOU!

The distance from the sun is very, very much larger than the diameter of the earth, this is why the sun sets in the west and rises in the east. Good try punisher.

The sun and the moon both orbit the earth every 36,000 years. That's what killed the dinosaurs.

That's correct.

What did you think its was that at times when watching the news you'll see the anchor-person speak with reporters on the field and there is a time-delay before the reporters can hear the anchor-person speak?

Because the transmission is being done by Radio-waves that are traveling a medium. That medium is the air, or the transmission would have been instantaneous.

If only it was 100% evenly illuminated....

You know the atmosphere...!

Or are you trying to compare it to something without an atmosphere with a very clear line of delineation like say the moon???

What are you trying to say?

That the Atmosphere acts like a ceiling around your make-believe Pinocchio spherical earth?

How does the earth have a ceiling?

If the Atmosphere (air) gets thinner and thinner the higher up you go at its heights it thinly disappears into Space (nothingness).

Air is most dense at ground level, by your statement, the earth's ceiling is the ground, ha ha ha ha !

How does the dense air around my feet distort the illumination of the SUN?

And you think it's flat because 1/2 is illuminated? I suppose you think that light rays should bend back around and illuminate the other half of the planet, if it were a sphere?

Jeez Einstein theorized that in 1915, and it was verified in 1919.

But I guess that doesn't count.
