No, when you look at the horizon, you are literally seeing the point at which the surface of the Earth is curving away from your line of sight.

I'd imagine that would depend on how far away from you the surface of your imaginary flat plane stretched and how much the thickness of atmosphere at that distance diffused light.

okay, but you can't see the actual curve itself, from left to right. so you can't see the curve. call it semantics, but you can't see the curve.

if the earth were flat, and went on infinitely in every direction, would you see a horizon line?

Because you don't understand physics.

You are looking right at the curve. That's why you can't see the other side of it.

I already answered this.

Uh get with the program dude, I'm on your side because mirages are a better explanation than the official story. Also I recommend not using YouTube because it's a state sponsored entity that only distributes government propaganda (including poorly done conspiracy theory videos, since those make dissenters look bad).

Also, I'm pretty sure the flat-earth you-tubers began this endeavor as a bet that they could convince conspiracy theorists of anything-- even something as scientifically unsound as the earth being flat.

Simple geometry to disprove flat earth...



Let me know when you find a place on your flat world where you can make 3 90 degree turns and end up at your starting location.

Your husband has cone-shaped testicles?
