If the sun were 93,000,000 miles away and we lived on a ball, you would be accurate in that assumption. If you just want to disagree that's great. But it's not actually using your brain. The Flat Earth model has the sun at a distance of about 3000 miles with a diameter of 32 miles. this means it lights things locally as it passes over them, and the law of perpective is the cause of sunsets.

Oh. I didn't know that. Oops.

What is the "law of perspective" and how would it cause sunsets?

Okay more importantly though, why the fuck does it really matter? I mean, what difference would it really make if everyone in the world believed this? Flat, round, upside down, it's all the same thing at the end of the day and to be completely honest, none of us here will get the chance to check on that soooooo.

The law of perspective (known to visual artists everywhere) basically states that all visual data will converge on a single point given enough length to do so. The best way I can personally visualize this is to imagine an infinitely long hallway. It's level and square and built perfectly. You can't see the end of the hallway, but the floor, walls and ceiling all have a vanishing point, which is always relative to the observer.

It basically means we can't see infinitely far on an infinite plane, as the ground and sky have to meet in the middle somewhere, and the farther an object (ie the sun) is the smaller it get, eventually disappearing. This can also be observed by watching ships go over the horizon. We think they are going over the curvature of the Earth. But when you pull a telescope out after it has disappeared over the curve, it reappears, top to bottom, because it's being brought back into the range of our site with an aid.

So if someone stands in Antarctica, at the edge of the world, what does the sun do? How does it move there? Does it set?

This is a matter of existential philosophy, really. Why it concerns me so much is that if the Earth is the center of the Universe, we were intelligently designed. Apart from that, the lie denotes huge clues as to the nature of the all-pervasive socioeconomic power structure which all human beings are subject to.

Huh. I haven't thought of that yet. Good, important question. I'll work on finding answers to that in the near future. Thank you.
