Seasons: Flat earthers often do a bad job
explaining seasons. A common explanation I receive for seasons from a flat
earther is that during June the sun goes in a small orbit around the North pole
and when it is December the sun goes on a large orbit being closer to the south
While this may sound
reasonable at first it fall apart when you consider the months of December.
Look at December. In
order to cover all the area we know the sun covers the sun light needs to loop
around the entire earth and leave a dark spot. Some flat earthers may say light
bends like this because of the tempiture. It does not explain why the light
goes farther in the cold air of the south pole compared to the cold air of the
north pole. Light travels faster in warmer air. Why does the light go farther
in the colder air. In a globe earth this is easily explained as the sun always
cavers half of the earth and the earths titled axes as it rotates the sun
