Thanks for the post, mate

consider....it doesn't do that noticibly piloting a plane....we correct if flying with the altitude hold turned off......correct every two seconds.....same a bulldozer blade control or the submarine drivers.....

A plane must follow above the SURFACE of a sphere. And must descend to follow the 'descending' surface, which ALL spheres have..
Yes, however the planes length is too short compared to the circumference of the earth to make it matter.
such a simple reason shouldn't be so hard to understated.
Much of the world would probably look at it the same way, as you. Up to a year or so back, I would have seen it that way, too.
If Earth is really shaped like a sphere, it does not matter how massive it is, or how small, in comparison, the airplane flying above it is.....
A plane MUST fly a constant descent over a sphere. Only the rate of descent will vary.
You were told that a plane does not need to point its nose down in any flights, and that a plane is always making little adjustments in a flight, which accounts for curvature on flights.
And you were told that it was such a small rate of curvature, that it didn't matter.
I'm going to explain why it DOES matter, once again...for it IS very simple concept..
Everyone knows Earth is massive, in comparison to virtually any object - on, above, or below, the surface.
A small object has to descend, if flying above a sphere.It doesn't matter if the sphere is a 10 million times larger than any other sphere, it is a sphere, and to fly around it, requires a constant descent, no matter how slight the rate of descent.
As for Earth, the curvature you believe is so slight, it doesn't matter?
If you were on a plane for a 6 hour flight, nothing would ever matter more to you, than knowing if curvature really exists!
Because you would either be flying in a plane 1800 feet higher than the altimeter indicates, or in a plane that is measuring the correct altitude.
Slightly important, yes?
however i posted about gyros yesterday.......gyros should hold reference in space.....then inertia landing a pane on a spinning globe landing north south....vs landing east west.......then the inertia from a sun haulin azz towards the star Vega....opposite Serius, the dog star however ya spell Serios....Serious...oh Sirus
The ice wall is no mystery. There have been those that have attempted to enter beyond the ice wall and nobody has had much luck. Look into Lord Shackleton and the Endurance, for one. Of course, this would have been done with the understanding that the ice wall is Antartica rather than an ice wall keeping the loonies in.

When did the flat earth # start?
yeh over 100 years ago , so why oh why havent any of the flat earth proponents sailed to the ice wall yet and told the world about their discovery!
Just sail there already and prove all of us globe earth, heliocentric theorists wrong !
