Sharing a reply I sent to one of my PH.D in Physics broadcasting friend, who unequivocally condemns topic of the flat earth without having ever investigated it:
Hey brother I hope your not mad with me but I know you probably are since you won't respond. This email is the last I will send unless you want to discuss it without getting anxious. You know I love you as a brother in Christ and that I am only trying to share with you the truth as I have learned it. You said in reply last night that one cannot see or detect curvature until 14 miles out but that is absolutely not true. I have studied curvature in great detail according to the mathematical formula given by science as method for determining curvature as supported by NASA and the other astrophysicists which affirm scientifically that this formula is how one can determine that curvature.
I'm going to attach below exactly what I wrote in my 9th book, Flat Earth As Key to Decrypt the Book of Enoch with regard to this as topic. You will see that curvature should be noticeable after one mile and that it is supposed to drop 8 inches per mile inversely squared according to the number of miles out, one is in trying to determine it. There is a chart below which can help you to see exactly how much curvature there should be according to how far out one is from the object being viewed.
At 14 miles there should be 130.6667 ft of curvature between the viewer and the object being viewed. Now the reason I sent you the video on the Navy railgun is because it can send a projectile directly to the target in a straight line at a distance of 125 miles without any consideration or computation for the curvature of the earth or the supposed rotation of it. At 125 miles there should be 10416.6667 ft or over 2 miles of curvature between the navy ship and the object targetted by the rail gun’s projectile. Meaning that not only should the target not be in the line of sight but in order to hit the mark one should have to shoot in an arc and then have the projectile descend in curve to reach the object without hitting the earth which lies in between. It would be impossible to shoot in a straight line and be able to hit the mark. Does that make sense?
I am only trying to share with you the truth about curvature and as I said anyone can go out to a bay or beach and look out at an object which is miles distant and prove to oneself that there is no curvature as Rob Skiba did in confirming that Joshua Nowicki’s photogtraph of the Chicago skyline was not a mirage.
It’s really that simple. Love you brother I hope that you will read this. I’m going to send you pdf’s of my two flat earth books The Flat Earth as Key to Decrypt the Book of Enoch and the Firmament: Vaulted dome of the Earth now and then ship you the paper editions sometime this week. God bless
The Curvature of the Earth? - Excerpt beginning on Page 284, The Flat Earth as Key to Decrypt the Book of Enoch:
Before concluding this chapter, I would like to quickly mention one other aspect of this debate which in my early research on this topic was enough to convince me that the model for the world that I had believed in my whole life was wrong, pure and straightforward. This topic has to do with the measure of curvature. When one looks into this aspect of the research, one will find that the number which pertains to the mathematical formula of how one can discover how much curvature the earth should have at any given distance is based upon the measure of 8 (rounded up) inches. Below is the method that Samuel Birley Rowbotham used for calculating the rate at which the spherical earth, 25,000 English statute miles in circumference curves.
"If the earth is a globe, and is 25,000 English statute miles in circumference, the surface of all standing water must have a certain degree of convexity--every part must be an arc of a circle. From the summit of any such arc there will exist a curvature or declination of 8 inches in the first statute mile. In the second mile the fall will be 32 inches; in the third mile, 72 inches, or 6 feet, as shown in the following diagram:
Earth's Rate of Curvature
"Let the distance from T to figure 1 represent 1 mile, and the fall from 1 to A, 8 inches; then the fall from 2 to B will be 32 inches, and from 3 to C, 72 inches. In every mile after the first, the curvature downwards from the point T increases as the square of the distance multiplied by 8 inches. The rule, however, requires to be modified after the first thousand miles. "The following table will show at a glance the amount of curvature, in round numbers, in different distances up to 100 miles. To find the curvature in any number of miles not given in the table, simply square the number, multiply that by 8, and divide by 12. The quotient is the curvation required.
Statute Miles Away/Math/= Drop
1 mile 1 x 1 x 8 = 8 Inches
2 miles 2 x 2 x 8 = 32 Inches
3 miles 3 x 3 x 8 / 12 = 6 Feet
4 miles 4 x 4 x 8 / 12 = 10 Feet
5 miles 5 x 5 x 8 / 12 = 16 Feet
6 miles 6 x 6 x 8 / 12 = 24 Feet
7 miles 7 x 7 x 8 / 12 = 32 Feet
8 miles 8 x 8 x 8 / 12 = 42 Feet
9 miles 9 x 9 x 8 / 12 = 54 Feet
10 miles 10 x 10 x 8 / 12 = 66 Feet
"To find the curvature in any number of miles not given in the table, simply square the number, multiply that by 8, and divide by 12. The quotient is the curvation required.
One can see that after a few miles the curvature is so great that it should be easily recognizable and yet when scientists tried to measure this curve none was detected, proving curvature nonexistent. Other experiments were set up to detect the motion of the earth, and again none was detected. Some of the experiments which had been done which verify these conclusions are the Bedford Level experiment, The Michelson-Gale experiment, “Airey’s failure,” and The Sagnac experiment. There are others which have also been done which discount curvature or movement to the earth. I’m not going to repeat here all of those experiments. However, I will mention that in my study on this topic, I learned that construction engineers do not in any way consider the curvature of the earth when drawing up blueprints for the building of bridges, canals, and railroads over long distances well to the extent of 30 miles. At 30 miles a construction project should have to figure in a corresponding drop of 600 feet according to the formula above.
Another thing which negates as factor curvature which all of us can attest to especially now with the aid of high-powered cameras and telescopes available to our generation. Is how on a clear day, one can perceive across vast ocean distances, monuments such as the Statue of Liberty, lighthouses, cityscapes, and even land masses such as island vistas some more than 50 miles. But according to the formula for the measure of the earth’s curvature at distances more than 20 miles, such structure should be 266 feet below the horizon under an observer’s line of sight making such sightings impossible.
Neither can any curvature be visibly detected when looking out of the basket of a hot air balloon, the windows of noncommercial planes (commercial airliners have windows installed which like fish eye lenses warp the appearance of the earth), or when standing upon the highest mountains of the earth. Even at very high altitude, in every direction the horizon remains flat and level.
