You mean you believe the Earth is round? Good for you.
Let me state that I was a definite non-believer in flat earth,
Perhaps for the same reason we can sometimes see things beyond the horizon. Light refraction.
This guy in the video speaks of things he has experienced if we are to believe him. How can you see at a 2 degree tight laser system out 50 nautical miles in a straight line and have no deviation as to the curvature of the earth?
The government didn't tell me the Earth is round but why the consternation? Because it's stupid. Note the motto of ATS.
I think we all know the government lies to us on a daily basis, why does this one cause such consternation?
US Navy Missile Instructor confirms FLAT EARTH - SW21
The ancients were well aware the world was a sphere. Pythagoras (6th century B.C.) is generally credited with having first suggested a round Earth. Aristotle (4th century B.C.) agreed and supported the theory with observations such as that the southern constellations rise higher in the sky when a person travels south. He also noted that during a lunar eclipse, the Earth’s shadow is round. Eratosthenes (3rd century B.C., head librarian at the Library of Alexandria) built on their ideas and calculated the circumference of the Earth with remarkable accuracy at about 252,000 stadia. Depending on which stadion measurement he was using, his figure was either just 1% too small or 16% too large; many scholars think it likely that he was using the Egyptian stadion (157.5 m), being in Egypt at the time, which would make his estimate about 1% to small… remarkable.
