Flat Earth Theory dictates that the sun must revolve around the Earth's flat disc and be a lot smaller and not as hot as we think.
Explain seasons. Explain why the Antarctic experiences months of light or darkness. Show me a model that explains this because if the sun revolves
towards the outside to give the Arctic its winter then even Australia should experience no darkness in their summer. I've lived in southern AU and New
Zealand in summer. It gets dark for a lot longer than my home country England in its summer.
The seasons and the length of day of night across the planeT at different times of the year can only be explained with a heliocentric model and a
globe tilted on its axis.
It's the only argument Flat Earthers don't have an answer to. They can point to elevated horizons and ignore gravity and how it affects perceptions,
they can dismiss every photo taken from space. They can accept telecommunication signals from satellites but dismiss their photos. But they can't
argue the seasons and the length of day determined by lattidude.
