    Not sure, definitely did not read every post in this thread!

    So explain a few things based on your model. Below is a screenshot from the video you linked to above.


    1. What is causing the shadow in the half of the flat, circle earth opposite the sun?
    2. What causes us here on the "flat earth" to see phases of the moon?
    3. What causes an eclipse?
    4. Explain this using a flat earth: In summertime, the sun is always above the horizon at the North Pole, circling the Pole once every day. It is highest in the sky at the Summer Solstice, after which it moves closer to the horizon, until it sinks below the horizon, at the Fall Equinox. The North Pole stays in full sunlight all day long throughout the entire summer (unless there are clouds), and this is the reason that the Arctic is called the land of the "Midnight Sun"*. After the Summer Solstice, the sun starts to sink towards the horizon. At the Autumn Equinox, approximately September 21, the sun sinks below the horizon, and the North Pole is in twilight until early October, after which it is in full darkness for the Winter.
    a. If the sun is on a circular circuit that never changes in height or circumference, why does the north pole go into darkness for most of the winter when the model in the video shows the day/night cycle happening every day?
    b. Same question for why, in the summer, the north pole stays in full sunlight throughout the summer.
    5. What makes the horizon for your flat earth? Is it the edge of your "atmosphere motorcycle lenses" explanation? Is it the actual edge of the earth? Is tit where the "dome" meets the earth?
    6. Why does the sun go down passed the horizon instead of disappearing at the same height to the right every night as this "straight line curtain of darkness" rotates on its center point located at the North Pole?

    Are you kidding me? When the helicopter is landed on the earth, it would also be traveling at 1,042 mph right? Are you saying that the moment it leaves the earth's surface it stops moving at 1,042 mph and immediately goes to 0 mph?. That's like driving a car at 100 mph and throwing a baseball through the sunroof and expecting it to drop straight to the ground in the same spot it left the car.

    Wow, just wow! How can anyone believe such rubbish?

    7. Based on the model you linked to, how is it possible that sometimes we see the sun and moon at the same time?
    8. How do you explain seasons using your model if the sun never changes its circuit around the earth?
    9. Explain this from your video:

    If the stars are on the dome, how do we get these circular pictures of the moving stars? Is the dome that encircles the flat earth separate where the earth spins at a different speed from the dome? Is the dome stationary and the flat earth rotates? Or is the flat earth stationary and the dome rotates separately?
    10. How come we don't have similar pictures of the sun moving from left to right in a circular circuit like the stars in point 9. above?

    The scientific knowledge of flat earthers is sketchy. Almost non-existent.
