A sphere that can be measured as a sphere, which cannot measure the sphere, proves it is NOT a sphere....


I have explained how you can measure the circumference of the Earth with two yardsticks. Not our fault if you are too lazy and stupid to do so for yourself, troll.

Do the experiment and prove me wrong, instead of JAQing off.

I did do the experiment and my results are in direct contradiction of your results .

Now what ?

Do we sling insults to one another ?

No, you post a video explaining your methodology, showing the experiment, and explaining the results. You enjoy making videos, so you must have one ready, right?

I highly doubt you did. We did the experiment at school and got the right results.
Is it only me who had to do stuff like this at school?.

With all due respect , i didn't sling an insult towards you .

Your yard stick experiment only measures the curve is 1 direction ; shouldn't you be the one who revise their experiment so the curvature is measured in all directions ?

If this curve was measurable with a yard stick , don't you think it would be taught in our schooling ?

Do you really think that everyone who claims that the curvature is not measureable are either lying or don't understand Science ?



Thats a bit simplistic explanation isn't it ?

Not at all.
I think you are bang on right they either do not understand the science or are lying or another option is they are ignorant idiots.

You can perform a similar experiment by adding a clock into the mix and traveling east-west instead of north-south. This will determine a longitudinal arc, which complicates measurement but nevertheless affirms the Earth's spheroidal nature.

It is.

It is also possible that you have never really considered the " Cross Section " view of Earth .

Is it not easier to just measure 1 mile in all Cardinal directions while visualising the " Cross Section " view of Earth ?

You do realize that you cannot measure a sphere using Euclidean geometry, right?

What do you think ?

Joking aside ; Spherical geometry is a non-Euclidean two-dimensional geometry.

If you assume that there is a Curve than yes you are correct .

Aren't you putting the horse before the cart ?

Science begins with Observation .

If we could observe the curve than none of these discussions would be taking place .

When airplanes are flying, all of them fly level.

The planes have vertical speed indicators, which shows when the plane is not climbing, or descending, because a pilot will want to fly level, normally.

A pilot will always fly level, as the plane is most stable, and fuel efficient, when level.


The planes do not fly off into space, in level flight.


The vertical speed indicator does not indicate a flight for curvature, however.

If planes flew over a sphere, instruments would indicate the proper trajectory, which would NOT be level.

We can observe it.
The ISS for one.

If there was curvature, we'd have instruments to indicate it during all flights. But we don't.

What good would an instrument be that informs you of being level in flights, if nobody ever flew level?

I've never heard a pilot, or anyone, say how planes are always in descent, which is very odd. It seems very important, to fly properly,
