As expected: bullshit video #51

Distance = 123 miles
Observer height = 63 meters (Point Dume, Malibu)
Target height = 3302 meters (Mt. San Jacinto)

Applying standard refraction 1880 meters of Mt. San Jacinto is hidden and 1422 meters are visible.

The buildings visible in the foreground are from the Marina del Rey at a distance of 31 km. Given the observers height, less then 10 cm are hidden of the buildings.

Why do these flat-earth-distance-fuckwits never take atmospheric refraction into account? Is it on purpose, to deliberately deceive the watchers, or is it stupidity?
Quoting: Hydra

The mountains should not be visible, if the curve were true (your having a functional disconnect here).

But they are, which means, there is no curve. Refraction or not, it would not cause the entire mountain range that would be behind a curve to magically appear over the horizon. Refraction/mirages do not work that way at all.

The only thing visible at that camera altitude if we were on a globe, would be a section of the top of the mountains - but instead we can clearly see it way more than just the peak, ...

Quoting: Hydra

what I was wanting to write was , ...some of it is hidden obviously because of distance (more distance, the more the visual drop of an object behind the horizon/over the curve), also right above the buildings where the buildings and mountains meet at the horizon level, theres a small section thats cut off visually because its too far to visually render the base of the mountain where it meets the top of the buildings at the horizon level.

In a mirage, you can clearly see the horizon line by the mirroring effect, which is literally non existant in the infrared video. Aside from very small compression - which won't "lift" the mountain's into view. Sorry, that is not logical at all. Refraction means nothing in the infrared video which is the point i was trying to make. Changing optics won't make the mountains magically appear, using any of your words, just because. It would only show a small portion/peak right over the buildings, but you don't understand that.

The only way for the mountain to be in view like it was in the video, if we were on a Globe, the camera altitude would have had to been few thousand feet up. But the Camera is at ground level, and we see the mountain... (this is where your common sense should kick in) especially since theres no/minimal refraction/optical illusions to hide behind.

Again, going back to, we see too far.

I never claimed the earth was flat fuckwit.

You highlight a quote I made

" I do, however, know how water behaves - it always displays a flat surface despite what is underneath it, it can't bend, it can't display convexity of a shape on the surface. This is the experience of every single person alive or indeed everyone whom has ever lived. This common knowledge of how water behaves denies a globular earth. Of course you are freely open to challenge but you must display evidence of said claim. The claim of a globe Earth deny this practical reality."

You deny this?

You claim: Water always displays a flat surface and water can't bend and water can't display convexity.

Excellent well thought out response.

Still, the proof bit...........nope, still nothing.
Quoting: BTBIC 6660082

The proof is so simple any half wit can run the experiment:

All you need is a camera with a sun filter.

1) Take a picture of the sun every hour from sunrise to sunset using the sun filter

2) compare the relative size of the sun on every picture.

You will notice to your amazement that the sun's relative size does not change throughout the day

Consequences:

The relative distance between your camera and the sun throughout the day is always the same.

This means:

->The sun does not move relative to the earth.
->The sun is very far away from the earth
->the earth cannot be a flat pancake
->Only possible shape the earth can be is a rotating globe.

How do you come to the conclusion that refraction means nothing in the near infrared between 800 nm and 1000 nm? Another gibberish lesson from the UoY?

The drop in the refraction index in the visible range of light is just 0.01 per mille: 1.000299 at 400 nm and 1.000291 at 800 nm. [link to aty.sdsu.edu (secure)]
If you claim that the drop is significant heigher in the near infrared range, you have to provide evidence for your claim.

Btw.: The camera was not at ground level but at 60 meters (197 feet), a big difference in what you see and what you don't see.

And again: If you claim that refraction does not apply in the near infrared range, you have to provide evidence for your claim.

Again, going back to, we see too far.

Wrong. We see exactly what we should see given the distance, the observer height and the target height, regardless of visible light or near infrared.

It's very easy to prove flat, Simply hold a straight edge up to the horizon, if it's flat, level, straight = earth flat. See ANY curve, = globe.. She flat folks...

Also you: I do, however, know how water behaves - it always displays a flat surface despite what is underneath it, it can't bend, it can't display convexity of a shape on the surface. [link to www.godlikeproductions.com]

You claim: Water always displays a flat surface and water can't bend and water can't display convexity.

Three claims - why do you lie?

Btw.: Prove that Water always displays a flat surface and water can't bend and water can't display convexity.
Practical demonstration of the claims made. Simple. No pseudo science.

You wrote: I've made no claims - You didn't write: I've made no claims that earth is flat.

You in general said: I've made no claims thus it isn't out of context.

I'll make a claim :- water can't display convexity of a shape upon its surface.........ever. Prove this wrong we'll go from there, prove how intellectually honest you are.

Thank you for admitting that you made the above claim. You know the rules: I don't have to prove anything - the burden of proof is at the claimant.

I was talking to someone who asked me to prove the earth was flat when I said I made no claims. Now the person I was responding too didn't include posts made elsewhere. That's you manipulating the conversation.....of course I made that claim. Separately. Completely unrelated to the post I responded too.

It's all dancing in circles with you to avoid the statements you hand wave away and the questions you can't answer.

Buh bye Charlatan, I can see right through you.

Again, henhouse dweller: You wrote: I've made no claims - You didn't write: I've made no claims that earth is flat. How about being specific the next time.

And since you admitted that you made three claims in another thread - water always displays a flat surface and water can't bend and water can't display convexity - we are waiting for your proof.

Prove that water always displays a flat surface, that water can't bend and that water can't display convexity.

Buh bye henhouse dweller, I can see right through your lame try to distract from your failure to prove your claims.

I grabbed one of the guys and tried to hold him up to the horizon. He was furious fighting me and at the end I gave up and released him.

Do you have any other prove for a flat earth? Even if you get a small guy, it's difficult to hold them up to the horizon, they just won't stay level.

It’s funny isn’t it. They expect you to believe a ship starts to go over the horizon/curve at about 3 to 4 mi out
Yet, I can set a rule out to the horizon, and 10-15 miles of horizon 4 to 5 miles out there is not curve.

Seriously strange ball we live on???

Jk, it’s not a ball

Also, if water curved 8” in a mile i should be able to measure a curve in my swimming pool or fish tank, albeit very small. Should still be measurable

I have a couple of questions for all the brain dead flat Earth folks.

What is on the other side of the flat Earth? What is holding it up?

If you say it is a giant God called Atlas, you are definitely a medium grade moron.

Also, what happens to stuff that falls off the edge?

Where does the sun go when it sets?

Why do days get shorter or longer by season?

Have you ever done math with a base of Pi?

How long is a "straightedge" (yes, sometimes orthography matters)? 30 centimetres? May be 50 centimetres?

Now tell me:
What is the angular size of a straightedge, held at arm length, at the horizon?
How many kilometres or what part of the circumference of earth does that represent at the horizon?
What's the height of the resulting circular segment?
Should you be able to see it?

I hope you can do some simple trigonometry (but I guess "no" - otherwise you wouldn't be a flattard).

Why would a person hang around and use complex maths to argue with people it considers “retards”?

That is really one way to find out who is a disinformation shill

Nobody with any sense argues with retards

That makes that person an idiot

Hydra doesn’t think you’re a retard. It’s a tool of propaganda. Hydra is trying to keep stupid people stupid by refuting thinking people using rhetoric and confusing maths mixed with moving goal posts asking for impossible proofs to any laymen
