The Flat Earth Experience (Page 118)

An eternal circle’s circumference is a straight line. So a really big circle looks like a straight line too. While the Earth looks flat from our perspective, it is written that knowledge shall increase and we now know that the universe God created displays his eternal nature and is held together and works because of his laws.

    D4T:  Here’s a thought experiment for you all, imagine a stack of Jenga blocks stacked end to end as tall as you can stack them. Now let’s place them at the equator which is spinning at 1,000+ mph.

    What would happen to a stack of Jenga blocks that are stacked to the limit and then moved slightly? Well, exactly what they were designed to do – come crashing down. Any movement will topple them because it takes a lot of balance to keep them stacked.

    How about these natural Jenga blocks?

    Hi Dig4,

    You condemn science while offering your own little scientific experiments as evidence.

    When did you lose faith in what you cannot personally see?

    When did suspicion start to rule you?

    Hi Mike,

    You have not debunked where the birds fly, not if you really look at the Hebrew. The word “Firmament” evolved from Greek influence apparently, but was not the Hebrew definition.

    And God said, let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters,…. On which the Spirit of God was sitting and moving, Genesis 1:2 part of which were formed into clouds, and drawn up into heaven by the force of the body of fire and light already produced; and the other part left on the earth, not yet gathered into one place, as afterwards: between these God ordered a “firmament to be”, or an “expanse” (v); something stretched out and spread like a curtain, tent, or canopy: and to this all those passages of Scripture refer, which speak of the stretching out of the heavens, as this firmament or expanse is afterwards called; seePsa 104:2 and by it is meant the air, as it is rendered by the Targum onPsalm 19:1 we call it the “firmament” from the (w) word which the Greek interpreter uses, because it is firm, lasting, and durable: and it has the name of an expanse from its wide extent, it reaching from the earth to the third heaven; the lower and thicker parts of it form the atmosphere in which we breathe; the higher and thinner parts of it, the air in which fowls fly, and the ether or sky in which the sun, moon, and stars are placed; for all these are said to be in the firmament or expanse, Genesis 1:17. These are the stories in the heavens the Scriptures speak of, Amos 9:6 and the air is divided by philosophers into higher, middle, and lower regions: and so the Targum of Jonathan places this firmament or expanse between the extremities of the heaven, and the waters of the ocean. The word in the Syriac language has the sense of binding and compressing (x); and so it is used in the Syriac version of Luke 6:38 and may denote the power of the air when formed in compressing the chaos, and dividing and separating the parts of it; and which it now has in compressing the earth, and the several parts that are in it, and by its compression preserves them and retains them in their proper places (y):

    and let it divide the waters from the waters; the waters under it from those above it, as it is explained in the next verse; of which more there.

    I hope that helps!

    Hi Mike,

    Regarding the eclipse in Dec. 2011, this site may have some answers for you. You can enter different locations and see how the animated eclipse would appear.

    Here is the animated lunar eclipse of 12/2011:

    https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/in/usa/phoenix?iso=20111210

    Look how different it looked in Singapore:

    https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/in/singapore/singapore?iso=20111210

    So, it appears that where you are watching the lunar eclipse has much to do with how it looks.

    Nick, how am I condemning science by doing “little” scientific experiments? Isn’t that kinda what science is?

    But let me ask you a question; when did you loose faith in what you can see? And more importantly, when did you loose faith in what God has said is true? Was it because of what the scientists told you?

    Dig….Yes, i knew what a right triangel was 0ver 60 yrs ago, and also how to figure the drop in a circles circumference also. So now that you know how to figure the pathagram theram, you should have your answer to how to figure the earths drop. Apply the math, and show your decieved friend Mike also. Do the math, it is easy, and believe the tons and tons of proofs the earth is indeed round.

    Everything you people have produced has been explaind clearly by hundred of sites that debuncks everything you people say. But if God blinds a person, they will believe anything, a deluding spirit sent from God, who sends to people who love not the truth, causes them not to except the truth, no matter how much actual proof is given them.

    You Flat Earthers are truly not living in reality. This whole thing is nothing but a waste of time and effort. IMO.

    Peace and love to you and yours. …..gene

    Gene, I’m glad you understand the calculation of the earth’s curvature. Could you then explain how the Statue of Liberty can be seen from 50-60 miles away? What is your explanation? Should it be able to be seen in the first place?

     

    At an observer’s height of 10 feet at a distance of 60 miles the hidden curvature should be 2,100 feet! The height of the Statue of Liberty is 305 feet from the base to the top.

    (Now this is simple math)

    Is 2,100 larger than 305?

     

    The height of the Statue of Liberty is 151 ft. from the base to the torch. With the pedestal and foundation included in the measurement, the full height is 305 ft.

     

     

    This is called evidence and science.

    Mike: “How about these natural Jenga blocks?”

     

    Now that is nature playing a trick on the globe disciples. Thanks for commenting though, no one else has. I wonder why.

    Dig….it’s not about me knowing it’s about YOU knowing how to figure it. I wasn’t showing myself how, i was showing you how to figure the earths drop. Instead of saying o i see now, and yes we can figure out the earths drop by applying the math. You completely change subject matter. No wonder you people are unable to see the proofs given you. You people are not interested in real proof at all. A bounch of smoke and mirrors. Sinply AMAZING!

    Peace and love …….gene

    Gene you’re not making a whole lot of sense here. I began by using the globe earth math to prove that objects can be seen further than they should be able to be seen. Do you understand that?

    Gene, it’s a simple question, how can the Statue of Liberty be seen from 50 or 60 miles away on globe earth?

    Or better yet… Gene, SHOULD the Statue of Liberty be able to be seen from 60 miles using your math? A simple yes or no will suffice.

    Dig. There you go posting more videos or photos of globe earth proofs. You can clearly see the bottom is being cut off and we know refraction changes the calculation somewhat as the calculations are based on zero moisture in the atmosphere.

    Again, I see lots of water in the image/video, so that would suggest slightly more than zero moisture I would have thought.

    Hi Mike.

    In case you were wondering.

    I noticed in your first post, you detached most of the images and later you posted a new image and that got added as an attachment to the first post.

    To explain what is going on here, I beleive this is not a bug, but a feature.

    It seems if you start a topic, that all files you attach later in the topic appear in that first post so people can download them without having to always look for them in the topic.

    Of course, if you do not like this feature, you are free to detach the images from there.

    Really? You should stick to what you are good at Mike.

    Q: Would it be possible to throw a ball in the air and catch it if I were travelling at 100mph on a motorbike?
    A: Probably not.

    Q: Would it be possible to throw a ball in the air and catch it if I were travelling at 100mph in  a car?
    A: Most likely yes.

    The Earth is like that car, not the motorbike as you assume. The atmosphere is moving with the Earth.

    Hasn’t this already been explained?
