A bottle made of a strange hard material fell from the sky.
It caused much conflict in tribe.
I have been tasked to throw it off the edge of the Earth.

You would think that sailors circumnavigating the globe would have noticed that the world was flat by now and stars are not needed for navigation.
Sattelites would not need an orbit in either polar nor geostationary config.
We would not need repeaters or sattelites for VHF or
MF/ HF radio comms.
I also must be experiencing optical illusions here in Australia when in the outback or deserts as the vast distances, without hills or trees for that matter, definitely gives the the impression of actually seeing with your eyes the curvature of our planet.
Another illusion occurs when viewing the horizon and the superstructure of a ship appears - followed by the hull ....
So many things need to be changed !

I've been doing a ton of research into proof that the Earth is indeed flat. Some key proofs:
1) The horizon always appears perfectly flat 360 degrees around the observer regardless of altitude. All amateur balloon, rocket, plane and drone footage show a completely flat horizon over 20+ miles high. Only NASA and other government “space agencies” show curvature in their fake CGI photos/videos.
2) Surveyors, engineers and architects are never required to factor the supposed curvature of the Earth into their projects. Canals, railways, bridges and tunnels for example are always cut and laid horizontally, often over hundreds of miles without any allowance for curvature.
3) If the Earth wasn't flat, an airplane would always have to dip its nose to stop from going into outer space.
I could go on and on, i'm not sure why the powers that be are hiding the truth from us, that the earth is indeed flat? Maybe so we don't try to find what is at the edge?

They how come no one in the history of the world has ever been to the end of the Earth and for that matter, fallen off? Tell me, where is the end of the Earth? Which continent? Which ocean?
If you really wanted to prove your belief then you should set a Kick Starter to fund a maiden voyage setting sail to prove to us once and for all you're right and we're all wrong?
