Arguments

  • The Earth is an oval (due to the spin). A model must be able to predict all observations and everything works without interference. Solar and Lunar eclipses are predicted with the globe earth model. It perfectly explains everything. In the flat Earth model, you could not see the same constellations and stars in S.A. and Africa (or S.A. and Australia or Africa and Australia) (the two will both be night) because you would only be able to see the front. Also, the stars that are only able to see in the Northern Hemisphere would be visible in the South. 
    Reality: 

    Flat:


    Also, if a building is really tall you can see it but the base disappears over the horizon. 

    Question for a follow-up argument. How far away is the sun? 

    My argument is really short but these videos have a lot more information. 

    I could either have the future pass me or l could create it.

  • @Pogue ;

    I think you mean ellipsoid.
  • @anonymousdebater ;

    I would suggest that spheroid would be more appropriate.

    "A sphere-like but not perfectly spherical body."
