10 Reasons Why The Earth Isn’t Flat
10 Reasons why the Earth isn’t flat.
Hi. Have you ever wondered why some people don’t believe that the Earth is round?
Have you ever wanted to convince them that they were wrong?
I mean, how is it possible that in 2020 we have to convince someone about Earth’s form? Today I’m gonna give you ten proofs of the sphericity of the Earth. Who am I? Well…I’m your master and today I’m going to teach you how to fight a flat-earther. You will be my warrior and you will honor me.

1) Lunar Eclipses
I’m sure every one of us has seen a lunar eclipse.
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon moves into the Earth’s shadow. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and Moon are exactly or very closely aligned with Earth between the other two, and only on the night of a full moon. The type and length of a lunar eclipse depend on the Moon’s proximity to either node of its orbit.
2) Ships and the horizon
If you go to a lake, and there are boats on that lake, the further away a boat is, the more the bottom of the boat will disappear, and you basically will see just the mast of the boat, and as the boat goes further and further away, the last thing you will see is the very top of the mast of that boat.
3) Varying of stars
Varying star constellations this observation was originally made by Aristotle (384-322 BCE), who declared the Earth was round judging from the different constellations one sees while moving away from the equator.
4) Eratosthenes’ Experiment
Eratosthenes will always be remembered for the calculation of the Earth’s circumference circa 240 BC, using trigonometry and knowledge of the angle of elevation of the Sun at noon in Alexandria and Syene (now Aswan, Egypt). The calculation is based on the assumption that the Earth is spherical and that the Sun is so far away that its rays can be taken as parallel.
5) Seeing farther from higher
You can see farther from higher simply because the Earth is curved. On a flat surface that would not be true, it is true because the Earth is spherical. If you go to a very flat area like western Kansas, on the ground you can see about 14 miles.
6) Ride a plane
If you’ve ever taken a trip out of the country, specifically long-distance trips, you could notice two interesting facts about planes and the Earth:
1. Planes can travel in a relatively straight line for a very long time and not fall off any edges.
7) Look at other planets
The Earth is different from other planets, that much is true. After all, we have life, and we haven’t found any other planets with life (yet). However, there are certain characteristics all planets have, and it will be quite logical to assume that if all planets behave a certain way, or show certain characteristics—specifically if those planets are in different places or were created under different circumstances—our planet is the same.
8 The existence of time zones
We all experience some cycles, for example, night and day, alternating periods of light and dark that change over time
Another cycle observed on Earth, which we call seasons, go a particular way in the northern hemisphere, and the opposite way in the southern hemisphere.
10 Images from space
Over the last decades, we’ve launched satellites, probes and people into space.
Many of them transmit amazing images to out receivers on Earth.
In all of these photos, the Earth is shown to be spherical.
