Nasa caught Photoshopping

                                              2015                                                                                2002

Can you spot any differences between the two depictions of earth above? I sure can. In one picture the ocean is more dull and less bright on the left while the ocean is more vibrant and bright on the right. The land is also more bright and colorful on the right than on the left. One thing these two pictures have in common is that they are both photoshopped by Nasa. If Nasa were really taking photos of earth from "outer space" there would be no difference between the two images. However Nasa is consistently remaking the image of earth from outer space to be more convincing. The image on the right was created in 2002 while the image on the left was more recent created in 2015. The reason that they changed their "Earth from space" image was that people debunked the 2002 version. Notice that to the left of Mexico on the 2002 version you can see the reflection of a light source. This light source is actually a lamp that Nasa used when creating their 3d rendition of the earth. They corrected this mistake by removing the light glare by making the "earth from space" picture rendition more dull and less colorful.

The Ship Under the Curve Explanation Debunked

Debunking Round Earth "Evidence": A ship does not disappear over the horizon

One of the most frequent pieces of evidence I get from round earthers is that since a ship disappears over the horizon the earth must be curved. This is wrong. The reason a ship looks smaller and smaller until it disappears is simply just a matter of perspective. The further a ship goes away from the observer the smaller it appears eventually the the viewer cannot determine ship from sea and there fore the viewer wrongly concludes that the ship "sailed over the horizon"

You can see that in the diagram above the further away a ship goes the smaller it appears. Eventually line w will intersect line E and the viewer will perceive the ship as disappearing. All round earthers have to do to test this theory is watch ships leaving a harbor. Eventually the round earthers will see that the ships get smaller and smaller until they cannot see the ship anymore. Round earthers feel free to debate me in the comments I look forward to debunking them.

Why do Round Earthers Get the Burden of Proof Wrong?

Why do Round Earthers Get the Burden of Proof Wrong?

After a lot of arguing with round earthers I discovered one common theme, they all assumed that the burden of proof lies with the flat earther. This is wrong. To start to address this issue Round earthers must understand what the burden of proof is. In philosophy the burden of proof is the obligation on a party in a dispute to provide sufficient warrant for their position. As a human when I see the earth with my eyes it looks flat (because it is flat), I don't see a curve. It is up to the Round earthers to provide evidence for their theory not the other way round. Until I can find convincing evidence that the world is round I will continue to believe that the earth is flat. Many times I have seen "evidence" thrown around by round earthers that "prove round earth". All of the evidence they provide is problematic. Whenever a round farther provides a picture from NASA that the earth is round it is problematic because the round farther falsely assumes that NASA does not photoshop. Whenever a round earther uses his or her camera to capture the earths curve they fail to factor in the fish eye effect.

I am so confident of my views on the earth that if any Round Earther provides irrevocable evidence in the comment section below then I will shut down this blog.
