The sun rises east all year long on the equator.

Clearly you didn’t factor in the atmospheric pressure divided by the square root of blue. If you had then you would realize that because of the flux capacitor at the northern pole the sun always rises in the east. If you don’t know flat earth math then there is a study guide in the book written by through-the-dome. It’s the only logical way.

Flux capacitor haven’t heard that saying since back to the future

Yeah, I saw the movie "Beyond Thunderdome". It was a Mad Max movie.

how does the equator has a constant 12 hour day and 12 hour night all year long at the same time the poles have 24 hour day and night six months all year on a flat earth model.
This is debatable, as Antarctica is off-limits for obtaining this information - prohibited by the same governments in the service of those who war against God, and the one or two videos posted from the area only leave more questions (similar to the NASA CGIs).

How is it that in the South, there are shorter days in the Summer compared to days at an equivalent latitude in the North, if the Earth is a ball shape? If the Earth were a ball shape, surely day and night should be of equal length at equivalent latitudes North and South?

I’m wondering why you’re bragging of your lack of common sense in public like this.

I’ll give you two hints: Solstices and equinoxes.

They are different because of the axis. I would explain it to you but I’m not going to waste my time if you can’t imagine a 3D earth.

Really simple: the Earth is tilted at about 23 degrees in relation its axis of revolution around the sun. That means that in summer (for the Northern hemisphere), the days are longer in the North and shorter in the South. During winder (for the Northern hemisphere), the situation is reversed.

All of this is basic geography taught in grade school... at least in North America. Perhaps your education did not include this?

What, you believe everything you were taught in grade school?

Imagine if the Earth were a ball, and the sun were a torch shining upon it. Now imagine, if you will, that you would like to adjust the axis of rotation of the ball to the devil's number - 66.6degrees, or 23.4degrees, if you measure the opposite way. Now, you will realise, if you rotate the ball along it's pupportedly-coincidental evil-seeming angle, or indeed, any other angle, that no matter where on the ball you measure, with the exception of the poles, the light is incumbant on the ball exactly for half a revolution. That would equate to 12 hours on a 24 hour day, irrespective of the lattitude selected.

Does the education in North America extend beyond the indoctrination presumably delivered during grade school?

I get it. You’re just messing with us😁.

I am not here to debate whether the Earth is flat or round. There is a documentary on Netflix right now about flat earth, focusing primarily on the followers of this movement. I have never seen such s flock of sheep in need of a shepherd. The harvest is ripe indeed. These people are desperate to belong to something greater than themselves and are prepared to part from loved ones, and logic to sustain their delusions.
Hungry, when I first heard that some people believe the earth is flat, I was stunned. But, I started thinking about it, and watching shows about flat earth/ and others about round earth... I am still searching. I think the flat earth society probably has some confused members, but, I think the majority of them are sincerely researching and repeating experiments and observations to test their hypothesis.

There are a number of shill societies on the internet, and I believe the Flat Earth Society to be one of them. That is, they present the truth, but mix it in with other rubbish (e.g. support for evolution, some bizarre belief that the Earth is constantly accelerating upward at 9.81ms-2), to make the casual investigator think that those who believe Earth is flat are likewise bordering on insanity. This said, I also believe there are genuine people on such sites.

I myself would be happy to accept the Earth is a ball, if there were even one proof of water's curvature that didn't require NASA's or some other space agency's input (e.g. those Computer Generated Images, or other questionable image "proofs"). If ball-Earth were such a fundamental aspect of our science, the proofs would be available from every angle, but such proofs are not forthcoming.

One could say, believing in the flat earth and or believing that the world was created in 6 days is broadly the same in terms or bordering on the absurd. Right? Whether either of these extremes are true is immaterial - viewed from a logical person's viewpoint they both sound equally outlandish to the normal mode of thinking.

Why don’t you get your flat earth butt down to the Gulf coast and take a good, long look at the ocean and then tell me there’s no water curvature😂.

go watch the sunset tonight.
watch the stars rotate above you all night, and the moon rise and set.
then watch the sun rise again in the morning.


it's incontrovertible and it's been there this whole time.
every eye sees it, every eye that has ever been.
