Nothing disappears over the horizen.
I live near the ocean. I see things disappear over the horizon quite regularly. You know; sailboats, ships...
Ah, but they don't. Next time you see something "disappear" over the horizon, take out a pair of binoculars, take a look and then realize it has "re-appeared". Magic you say? No and also not the curvature of the Earth, if it were curvature, a telescope or binoculars would not help you to see it after it "disappeared".

Does the Sun Revolve around the Earth, or does the Earth revolve around the sun?
It's not hard to draw a model if you forget about Newton's laws of gravitation and the masses of the objects.

where and how the seasons went away? The only way would be for the Earth to rotate differently on it's axis in a way that even i with my large mind can't comprehend.
The geocentric model of the world system says that the seasons occur because the ecliptic (the suns apparent annual orbit around the earth) is tilted by approximately 23° to the plane of the earth’s equator, see diagram below:

My grandmother had no idea the sun was a star she also thought the sun revolved around the earth. She deeply religious and not to scientifically inclined. I'm assuming most of these people that thin the sun goes around the earth are probably religious. A lot of religious people are clueless.
Poor deluded fools probably also believe our Earth or Moon is hollow.
The sun looks spherical, the moon looks spherical, and the Earth looks spherical, and you seem to know nothing about how 360 degree cameras work. You don't know how to embed a video here either, it doesn't play but I watched it anyway.
