Ok so I will explain because when people who don't buy flat earth try to debate the topic they use what they think is flat earth theory so I'll try to
clear this up for you.
You are thinking fo the sun as a huge body millions of miles from the earth. In flat earth the sun is more like a small spotlight close to the
Like if you took a flashlight and a plate and the closer to the plate the light is the smaller cone of light it makes to the point the light won't
reach from one side to the next.
Now keep in mind I don't really buy in to the flat earth stuff but I have used it as a thought experiment in many threads because,well, I like
thinking about how we could be fooled
It's like the "if the earth is not a globe then how can you sail from Japan to Hawaii " , and it's easy you sail in a circle following the sun as it
goes In a circle around the disc. The motion would be the same , a circle. It's just In one you would circle a globe and I one you would circle a
Also in case you are wondering you can't sail off the disc because the edges of the disc is the antarctic so there really is no "edge" to fall
