So how did you learn globe theory

#1 - not seeing any images of the underside of a flat earth #2 - not seeing one photo from a jet or satellite showing North America and Europe in the same frame. #3 - Understand the force required for a rocket to leave the gravitational pull of the Earth.

So, when I was 7 or 8, seeing a mountain ski resort lights from a highway mile away that was in a straight line of sight. "How can the lights be at eye level when the mountain is 1000 meters high and we're at sea level? Brother: Because the curve of the earth makes the lights at the same level as we are, thus, you don't see the bottom of the mountain"... then driving closer and closer, seeing the mountain lights rise higher and higher and the bottom of the mountain became visible. Thus, this made it clear to me that what I was told by my brother made 100% sense to my own eyes.

By being told ships disappear over the horizon because the earth is round, going to the beach and seeing it happen in real-time. If it was flat, the ship's hull would always be visible and it would just get smaller and smaller, which it does not.

Being in a jet at 40,000 feet seeing the curve with my own eyes.

By looking up at the moon, and rings of Saturn with my own eyes,. seeing they are round thus, the earth should probably be round too which makes total sense.

By seeing the sun disappear over the horizon and not stay aloft.

By knowing light photons travel billions of miles and thus, if the earth was flat we would always see the sun.

By understanding how planets form mass and how gravitational forces can be applied to explain why it is physically impossible to sustain a flat disc.

I could go on.

For flat earth people, it's always some obscure unscientific experiment and never a wholesome set of rules. Show me the image of the underside or any image the prove otherwise and maybe I will believe it is possible. The excuse that there is some master cabal keeping this evidence or stopping someone in a private jet from flying off the edge is just too ridiculous to believe.

Lol copy pasta. Who is fucking discussing flat earth here? You.

You think the ground is always moving up
