A challenge to all flat Earth believers

I’ve seen a number of different models for a flat Earth. A theme I see repeated often is that when explaining the apparent motion of the Sun they only seem to draw it from the perspective of a single person.

The problem with this is that there is more than one person on the Earth, and that there is always more than one person looking at the Sun at the same time. None of the flat Earth models I have seen cater for this very simple fact.

So, I have decided to put together a challenge to flat Earth believers. I have drawn an illustration showing how a specific scenario is explained in what I would call “real life”. I would like to see submissions illustrating how the exact same scenario is possible on a flat Earth.

Imagine three flat Earth believers all looking at the Sun at the exact same moment. They are on a video conference call and are arguing about the current position of the Sun – each giving a live video feed of their view of the Sun + a compass reading so the others can see which direction their camera is pointing.

  • Person 1 is standing in the West and claims the Sun is half obscured by the horizon of the sea to his east.
  • Person 2 is standing in the East and claims the Sun is half obscured by the horizon of the sea to his west.
  • Person 3 is equally distant from the others and claims he sees a non-obscured Sun directly overhead.

If you are a flat Earth believer, please draw the illustration of the model you believe in on the right hand side of the preceding image. Then submit a comment with a link to your uploaded image for review.

Thank you.

    Is flat earth that popular that you rise from the ashes to write about it? 🙂
