There is no measureable curvature on the high seas .

Says you....
Everything else in this world says otherwise
Seas are level and straight , there is no measureable , observeable curvature on the seas of Earth .

has nothing to do with you really... its your ridiculous claims
Your lack of anything solid as evidence of your claims...
the fact that you keep saying you don't believe in a flat earth, yet its just what you're claiming over and over again
We both know repeating ourselves is just a lesson in insanity... so why not try proving what you claim
And not just the same old crap about no curvature in your silly experiments
Interestingly enough i have a live satellite feed on my dish... i suppose thats just fake too... all CGI
Or some program designed to make you believe its showing a live feed lol
I can't fix your delusions dude...
Seas are level and straight , there is no measureable , observeable curvature on the seas of Earth .
and how is anyone supposed to take you seriously when you post blatant lies?
hmm?

Sorry but that is incorrect.
Unless you have a sea state of 0, they are not level simply from wave action (swells) that can have very high crests and very deep troughs.
But the really big thing that keeps the seas from being "level" is the tidal bulge created by both the Sun and the Moon.

And that would be more crap from flat earth society...
So basically more nonsense...
simplistic nonsense, but none the less still... nonsense attempting to prove the lack of curvature on the planet
Ain't gonna fly here bud

yeah - lets not play word games
now - what curvature do you EXPECT to be able to see ???????????????????
hear is a pic :
i have annoted 3 points : I , O and II
please indicate how curvature SHOULD manifest between the 3 points

And when you become a mod, you will have that right...
Til then i believe i will stick around...
and its not your thread anyways...
Guess what... i can play by the same rules as you play by
meaning i can fully reject anything that comes directly from the flat earth society site
thus, your pretty little picture proves squat

Actually im familiar with pythagoras, but that is besides the point...
See on your picture where it says "imaginary earth ball"?
that disqualifies it as anything close to "science" regardless of the equations contained within said picture
straight from the flat earth site.... thus... Nonsense hiding behind the word science
Pythagor is at the heart of the Curvature debate .
Just because Flat Earthers use Pythagorean Theorem in their arguments doesn't make the theorem itself wrong either .
It really is obvious that you are rather emotionally invested in your stand ; a Scientist would leave their feelings out of this debate and focus on numbers and measurements .
So far all you do is appeal to authority , fall into various logical fallacies and regurgitate the accepted narrative .
Science doesn't work with feelings ; it works with observation , experiment and measurement .

Spherical Pythagorean Theorem
Did you know there is a version of the Pythagorean Theorem for right triangles on spheres?
First, let's define precisely what we mean by a spherical triangle. A great circle on a sphere is any circle whose center coincides with the center of the sphere. A spherical triangle is any 3-sided region enclosed by sides that are arcs of great circles. If one of the corner angles is a right angle, the triangle is a spherical right triangle.
In such a triangle, let C denote the length of the side opposite right angle. Let A and B denote the lengths of the other two sides. Let R denote the radius of the sphere. Then the following particularly nice formula holds:
cos(C/R) = cos(A/R) cos(B/R).
Presentation Suggestions:
Verify the formula is true in some simple examples: such a triangle with two right angles formed by the equator and two longitudes. For more on spherical triangles, see the Fun Fact on Spherical Geometry.
The Math Behind the Fact:
This formula is called the "Spherical Pythagorean Theorem" because the regular Pythagorean theorem can be obtained as a special case: as R goes to infinity, expanding the cosines using their Taylor series and manipulating the resulting expression will yield:
C2 = A2 + B2
as R goes to infinity! This should make sense, since as R goes to infinity, spherical geometry becomes more and more like regular planar geometry!
By the way, there is a "hyperbolic geometry" version, too. Can you guess what it says?

This is true... but there isn't a debate my friend
Never has been a debate... Even pythagoras knew the earth was a sphere, and he lived 2500 years ago... lol

the measurements these people use are fabricated to look like the earth has no curvature... its pretty obvious
So far all you do is appeal to authority , fall into various logical fallacies and regurgitate the accepted narrative .
actually i appeal to a general consensus... a well known obvious consensus...
Hell even flat earthers claim they are all over the globe... which is hilarious!
Science doesn't work with feelings ; it works with observation , experiment and measurement .
and as i've said before, its not a feeling its a fact... the earth has a curvature
Its observable... Testable... repeatable in its testing... except when flat earth people inject their nonsense
