Light doesn’t bend, calm water is flat. CHALLENGE at a lake put a stable laser dot (firmly attached to the shore) SHOOTING onto a poster attached to a boat, k? The boat is on calm water, no waves (like early morning on a lake) If the earth is flat the laser dot will not rise above the point it was originally pointed at as the boat travels farther and farther away from the shore. If the laser rises then there is a curvature to the strait shot land/water between the boat and the laser.

Any thought on this experiment, pretty simple way to prove your theory on a lack of curvature over a large distance, hell you could sail that boat pretty far and still see a laser dot. And if the earth is flat then the laser dot will not rise above the level of where it was pointing originally.

What do you think? This would prove to me the earth is flat, as it is repeatable direct empirical evidence! What is whiny with this experiment, criticism is encouraged, please explain yourself.

You still think your are spinning on a ball?

What are you 5?

You probably still believe in dinosaurs.

I think my experiment would easily prove you right so please give it a try if your so confident

How do shadows work on flat earth?

Why wouldn't shadows work on a flat earth? LOL

You clearly haven't been doing your "flat earth research"

On a flat Earth, if you had 2 tall objects that cast a shadow they would be the same length no matter where they are.. but due to the curvature of Earth, the sun will hit one part of Earth at one angle and another part of Earth at a different angle even at the same time of day making the shadows different sizes.

Also go buy yourself a pricey laser gyroscope.. might be an expensive lesson to learn though.
