TBH, I THOUGHT THE FLAT EARTHERS WERE A FAKE THING, LIKE A JOKE. YA KNOW, THE "WOAH, DUDE! IT'S JUST A PRANK BRO!" KIND OF THING? WELL...I'V | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
But really, I DID think it was a joke, but then again, those people do actually exist

I've talked to one flat-earther on imgflip who actually said that outer space is a hoax. I'm sure some people who claim to be flat-earthers are just kidding, but I've never doubted that there are quite a few sincere ones

I think it still wouldn't be visible from far away due to the atmosphere. Y'know, like objects at a distance looking blue?

Perhaps, but inversely people might also see a mirage of Everest, and with the air currents moving about it stands to reason that you'd be able it some of the time.

I was wondering if anyone would make that point, glad to see you did! Personally, I'm undecided on the flat-earth matter (I consider it up for real debate, and do what I can to weed out fallacies on both sides). Anyways, you are exactly right: air can often be thought of as a very thin fog. Over a great distance, there are just too many particles to see through. Not to mention that the amount of magnification necessary to see from America to Mt.Everest would be extreme (assuming that one could get a clear sight-line, that is)

Well, if you can't see the curve of the horizon when looking out over a large body of water, I don't know what to tell you. Personally, I think this whole flat earth thing is just another joke that went too far, maybe on a bet, just like scientology.

Actually, you can't see the curvature of the earth from sea level. Even NASA admits that the curvature of the earth cannot be seen clearly unless you are more than 50,000 feet in the air (rough estimate, it's been a while since I researched this).

And I must assure you that there are many who are dead serious about the flat earth. I don't care much one way or the other, but I find the subject useful for studying debates (when somebody can discuss the flat earth theory -from either side of the debate- while steering clear of fallacies and remaining respectful of their opposition, you know you've found a good debater)

Weird, I've always been able to see the mildest curve on the horizon just when standing on a beach.

And yes there are many who are dead serious about flat earth, just as there are many who are now dead serious about scientology. That doesn't really have any bearing on the intentions when either of them were started. I can't speak for flat earth, but as I understand it, scientology was started on a bet between L Ron Hubbard and Ayn Rand. (Though I may be misremembering the latter).

The apparent curvature from the beach is actually just the limit of your eyesight. It's at different lengths depending on the weather and depending on whether or not you use magnification. The earth would have to be much much smaller for the curvature to be visible from sea level.

Besides. a flat Earth doesn't cancel out diminishing perspective, nor any objects between you and the mountain that may be relatively taller based on perspective, and thus blocking your view of said mountain :p

Get on top of a building with a telescope. Should be able to see everything.

Flat earthers.... lol what a joke.

Honestly the laws of perspective are something that not many understand.

Right... but that’s without anything enhancing the naked eye. Just like we can see stars with telescopes that we can’t see with our naked eye. If we zoom in the object we’re trying to see then becomes visible.

Well.. if you believe in flat-earth, you must factor in the theory that astral bodies (sun, moon, stars, planets) are waaaaayyyyy closer and smaller than astronomy tells us, thus rendering them visible to the naked eye.

Let me just say this.. If you believe in all the galaxies and far away stars and the pictures of the earth from space, then you just believe in CGI and Photoshop... that's silly :P

Not necessarily. We can only see so far with the atmosphere as it is.
