    Can you tell me a prrof that is not an image from nasa? Lets debate

    I'd rather not...

    But here is a video showing the earth is round...not NASA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQwLmGR6bPA

    You are a troll...you are ignoring every post and posting back without discussing...why not agree or disagree with shepherdless?

    Shepherdless. Tell me what eratosthenes obtained as a result

    Earthmeasured, well the rest is just trigonometry. And simple trigonometry at that. Before going on, I would prefer that you acknowledge that the sun's shadow down a well can give a very accurate measure of the angle to vertical of the sun above the Earth.

    OK so your not a troll then your a nutter .

    Anyone with a grade school education who adamantly states the earth is not a globe is a nutter or a fool trying to take the piss of others .

    Carry on.

    Notsure wheretogo i ve stated the argument, due to respect or maybe a sense of ospitality i should be the one to lead this thread. I m asking for evidences that are not video or images and you post a video, its clear that you have not arguments and you are thus attacking the person

    Eratosthenes arrived to define the radius of the globe. Or not?

    Earthmeasured it is the person who makes extraordinary claims that has the burden of proof.

    Tens of thousands of scientists from multiple fields of research all know that the earth is spherical. You have the arrogance to claim - without any relevant qualifications - that they are all wrong. Nobody here has to provide any evidence.

    JWs are the most scientifically illiterate group of people on the planet but at least they got the shape of the planet right.

    You stated a belief you have, offer no proof and disregard any evidence and disregard people asking you questions by you replying with other questions.

    Troll.

    I agree with earthmeasured, the Bible says the earth is flat in over 60 scriptures it even says it’s supported by pillars and has corners. If the Bible said it it must be true! And that’s why they call me crazy.

    Correct. If you can measure and compare the angle of the sun above 2 wells north-south of each other by a significant distance, then calculating the radius of the earth is a simple trigonometric exercise.

    In short, the radius will equal the (difference in angle / 90°) x the distance between the 2 wells divided by π/2.
