Selfie From Top Of Everest ‘Destroys Flat Earth Theory Once And For All’






In a Reddit post simply captioned: ‘Checkmate flat Earth society’ user amazed spirit shared an image of him or someone they know posing for a selfie atop Mount Everest with the – you guessed it – curved edge of the planet in the backdrop.


Everest, in case you skived every day of school, is the highest mountain above sea level, located in the Mahalangur Himal sub-range of the Himalayas on the border between China and Nepal.
 





Its elevation rises to 8,848 metres, or 29,029 ft.

Many Reddit users came out in support of the concrete evidence, with one saying:


''Forget about dumb curvature arguments. The fact that you can only see 2.5% at a time proves it isn’t flat. If it was flat you should be able to see the whole thing from even just the top of the tallest mountain or on any commercial flat.''


Though one user brought into question whether the photographer was using a fisheye lens and thus distorting the image.

There was no appearance from ardent flat-earther Connor Murphy who recently disclosed why we don’t fall off the edge of the planet.



Connor, son of famous flat-earther Dave Murphy, spoke exclusively to UNILAD about NASA, the Sun, Photoshop and pretty much everything you’ve ever wanted to ask someone who thinks the reason you see the curvature of Earth from a plane is because the windows are round.






Watch the documentary here:


Speaking about why NASA and the government would lie about space travel, he said:

''There are two good reasons in my opinion. One obvious reason would be money. The money raised by NASA alone since their inception is something like fifteen trillion dollars, and with that money they’ve really shown little for their work.''

A second thing is to make people feel insignificant. It makes you feel like you’re an insignificant speck of dust and therefore you’re easy to control. Basically if you can imagine the globe squashed down with Antarctica instead of being its own continent, being the perimeter around the side. So a lot of people say that’s an ice wall. It’s more like a shelf or cliff.





And as for why we don’t fall of the edge of the world, he added:

''Fall off into what, do you know what I’m saying? The way we see it is it’s an enclosed system.''


''There’s water above, there’s the firmament – or the dome – and there’s water above it and water below it and there’s no leaving it, there’s no finding other Suns and stuff. You can’t fall off the edge, essentially.''


What about the curve of the Earth you can see when you fly? Conor said:

''You cannot see curvature from a plane. The reason why it may seem is because of the way planes have to be designed. Every single window on a plane has to be round and curved because the cabin itself is curved.''


You can’t have straight panes or they would explode and everyone with the plane would be done. Next time you’re on a plane, look out the window and at the wing, because the wing will seem to curve as well.

  1. Please learn the difference between a THEORY and a HYPOTHESIS. "Flat Earth" is not a theory or it would be proven and reproducible. Reference the scientific method, step by step. Sheesh.....the name "science" is right in your name.....

    1. If its proven and reproducible than it is not a theory. It is then a fact. A theory is an idea that has not been proven but is supported by "general principles independent of the" theory itself that is accepted by the majority of the science community, like how physicists use the laws of physics (facts that, over many experiments, have been proven over and over again to be undeniable)to support the PROBABILITY of said theory. (keep in mind the difference between probability and possibility. If the concept goes against the laws a physics it is not possible. Its concept doesn't violate any of the laws of physics, scientist think about what conditions must be present that could allow the idea to be possible and if like the means to conduct an experiment to prove their hypothesis, then they use the laws of physics and how each one affects the other to determine the probability of the concepts possibility)

    5. It's still a theory even if its a "fact" because nothing, in fact is a fact. Some theories have enough supporting evidence that they are basically facts or laws of the universe, however overall they are still theories.

      However flat earth is no more than a Hypothesis as they have no real evidence its just feelings and beliefs which cant really move beyond the hypothesis stage.

      Yall need to watch some god dam magic school bus

    6. Ya dude...A hypothesis is the fundamental statement of a theory. when a theory has been proven by the scientific method it then becomes a scientific Law...So ya...its time to step on down from the your high horse sir...

    8. To the flat earthers; An hypothesis is placed forth as an educated guess on an observation of phenomenon(a) that is not subject to explanation and understanding by known facts to the observers and others. An hypothesis is not held to be the final statement on a phenomenon but rather an explanation that will be subjected to testing and peer review of the experimental conclusions. It usually takes quite a bit of scientific inquiry for a theory to be held as a plausible explanation for natural phenomena. And for the rest of us; The rantings of these deluded fools is nowhere as credible as even a hypothesis. They are living and posting in an echo chamber dominated by a few sociopaths who build a sense of self validation on the remarkable numbers of folks they fool into following their creeds. This is in itself a phenomenon of the rise of technology that makes it possible to spread misinformation incredibly fast to an incredible number of people. And it is coupled also with a rise in narcissism that has been cuddled and nurtured by a primary and secondary education system with gaping loopholes in delivery of instruction and handicapped by questionable state standards for math and science.

  7. If the windows cause a distortion, then why does the earth look flat when a plane is still sitting on the tarmac?

    1. It would be worth testing the Using the theorem of Pythagoras a2 = 39632 + 12 = 15705370 and thus a = 3963.000126 miles. Thus your position is 3963.000126 - 3963 = 0.000126 miles above the surface of the earth. 0.000126 miles = 12*5280*0.000126 = 7.98 inches. Hence the earth's surface curves approximately 8 inches in one mile.

      Although it's tuff, this simple test could be done by 100 different testers and compare data baced in a single targt, 100 meter rod on calm water
      From 100 equally spaced vantage points at the maximum distance of measurements we can determine

    2. set up in a field, 1000 yards east, and 1000 yards west set a target. Take a rifle, put it on a bench, hit target A, spin it around, hit target B.
      congratulations, you just proved curvature and spin.

  13. Although I know that the Earth is round, because I am not uneducated, I must say that this article is absolutely wrong. That is 100% a fish-eye or "panoramic" lens. You cannot see the curvature of the Earth from 29,000 feet. Period. You can just barely see it from commercial airliner altitudes, which are HIGHER at around 35,000 feet, but not normally, because your field of view out of a port hole isn't enough. And you certainly can't see it at such a low altitude with other land and mountains all around, the first bit of roundness you would be able to see at a sufficient height would be out over the ocean, where there are no hills or mountains in the way.

  16. This does not look like a true curvature of the planet at 8848m. Earth will still look flat at such a height. You need to go much higher to see the curvature

    ReplyDelete
  17. Think of the Earth like a golf ball. Its round. But has lots of hills and valleys on it where all the dimples are. If I were shrunk down and were sitting inside a dimple, all I would be able to see would be the horizon. and from that vantage point would appear to be flat. It will always appear to be flat. BECAUSE YOU CANT SEE 360 degrees around you at the same time! You cant see the curvature of the Earth until you are able to see the horizon to the north, the south, the east and the west ALL AT THE SAME TIME! Which means that youd have to be at a pretty high altitude. Like in orbit.

    2. What an idiot. The air that the helicopter is flying in IS ROTATING TOO!!

      Think of it this way, since you seem to be having trouble with logic... If you are in a car traveling at 80 mph, and a bee lifts off the seat and flies to the front at 2 mph, you don't say "Oh my God, a 82 mph bee!! That's impossible, bees can't fly that fast!!!" You say, "Well, the car, the bee, and the air are moving at 80 mph relative to the ground. As far as the bee and I are concerned, it's traveling forward at 2 mph. Same with a helicopter.

      In your helicopter hover idea, in order for the helicopter to truly stop with respect to the rotation of the earth, it would have to pick up speed in the opposite direction of rotation until the earth was rotating and the helicopter wasn't. A huge amount of speed in fact. Otherwise, its going to continue rotating with the air and the earth.

  21. Watch the video. It's a fisheye lens. When the camera is moving up, the earth goes concave, when the camera moves down, the earth curves, when the camera is stationary and looking out... horizon is still at the observers eye level. Oceans don't curve into a spinning water ball. Kick and scream all you want. We're on a motionless plane and there are no upside people. Deal with it. :)

  22. Ever heard of a fish eye lens, well there ya go.

  24. It's absolutely a fish eye lense. Also, the author is cluseless about perspective and how the human eyes work. We can not see infinitely. Even on a flat plane. All vision converges to a vanishing point which can be increased by binos or telephoto lenses.

  35. I have had significant debates with flat earthers in the past, and ultimate came to the conclusion that, since they value belief and emotion over facts -- since they do not put any real merit in evidence -- there was nothing I could present that they would take seriously. They are determined to be right at all costs, and as often is the case, intelligence has its limits whereas stupidity does not.

  47. You don't need a photo: here is what God says about the FLOOD in Noah's day that debunks flat-earth all the way around the globe:
    It's in Gen.7
    "18 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.
    19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.
    20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered."

    Now, you can't have a flat earth when it says the WATERS "prevailed", so that "all the high hills that were under the WHOLE HEAVEN, were covered": because IF the earth were flat, the HALF OF HEAVEN would be beneath the "dinner plate of earth", and only HALF of heaven would have been "covered" by the "flat-earth that had the half of heaven above them": think about it you Flat-Earthers, if you can still THINK! The earth is a GLOBE, so that ALL THE HILLS on earth are underneath the WHOLE HEAVEN.

    DUH~!

    Now for those who don't believe the Bible, and Noah, and GOD, there is no help for you! The Flat-earthers have their theory based FROM the Bible, the misinterpretation of it, and the Bible does interpret ITSELF! Read it, believe it and if you can't believe, ask GOD to reveal it to you - He IS...the Revelator of it. No excuses. There was no ice-rim on Day 1 of Creation week people...not according to the Bible. THe mountains in Antarctica came OUT of the waters that were called "seas". I didn't write the Book.
