Why do you entertain a theory that's been scientifically debunked for decades by every intelligent society on the planet?

I understand you are simply trolling the crap out of the forum, but what is your foundation for even remotely believing any of the utter BS you are tossing around in this thread?

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.
Having actually gone to art school, I can tell you that "the law of perspective" is not a thing, it's just "perspective". And in the scenario you're describing it would definitely not explain the sun appearing larger as it approached the horizon nor it sinking behind the horizon.

I think Flat Earth theory is total bollocks, but there's no reason we can't have a polite conversation about it. Cheers.

Why? I'm sorry, but I can't just submit to a claim of authority on the matter.

But people have already checked it out for us. The Apollo missions. The Space Shuttle missions. The international Space Station. Thousands of Satellite pictures. The Hubble telescope.

Well obviously him/her doesn't believe that, so I'm just saying even if the Earth was flat (it's not) we would have no way of confirming/denying it so why bother wasting our time when we could be say, listening to the new Nails album?

Because the vanishing point is the horizon line. The sun would appear smaller and smaller as it approached it, not bigger, and it would never appear to go beneath it because the vanishing point is by definition the point toward which all perspective lines move.
