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.

Pipe laser with no focal point, not parallel to begin with prooves nothing.

Would you like to see the other tests too or will they also prove nothing? ;)
