Just for the record, these are the Rif mountains, the highest point of which is almost 2.5 km tall: en.wikipedia.org...
I can see the mountains from that approximate position in Google Earth just fine:
I'll agree that the visiblity of mountains in my photo might be greater than it usually is, but I'll attribute that to the fact that the mountains become visible on days when there is cool wind blowing from the North. Cooler wind has greater density than warmer air, and denser air creates stronger refraction.
First of all, sorry for not getting back to this thread sooner. I usually hang around the Space Exploration forum, and rarely visit any other ATS forums.
Just wanted to share this video, where rationalists/debunkers discuss the Flat Earth beliefs and believers:
The mountains actually start at around 140 to 150 km distance. 150 km gives the hidden height of 1.34 km, and most of those mountains reach into 1.5 km and towards 2 km.
I'll agree that the visiblity of mountains in my photo
I always found it difficult to accept that people really believed Flat Earth
I stopped engaging in these circular debates some time ago. Each to their own. The investment in time and effort is better used by people who have an interest either way.
We'll have to agree to disagree on whether this is a circular debate.
I'll post as and where I choose to. As you know, I'm not going to be drawn in and will move along for now.
