# Sun's size and path makes no sense on a flat

 Posts: 9 Add as FriendChallenge to a DebateSend a Message 8/29/2016 2:26:16 PMPosted: 1 year agoIf the sun is circling over the disk earth, we should see it appear tiny and close to the horizon when it is further away, and very much larger and high in the sky when it is close. It's path should be an ellipse, not a crude, and it should not look be measurably the same width at its furs test distance as when it is overhead.Oh, and it can never set below the horizon, since it is always above the plane of the disk, according to flat earthers. How high above the disk? FE claims vary, but most say about 3000 miles. Now the earth disk couldn't be wider than about 25000 miles unless there is a lot of surface unaccounted for. 3000 miles up and 25000 miles horizontally wouldn't place it very low in the sky, would it? Let alone allow it to vanish so that it's light is hidden.If you can't visualise this have a look at the first video on the pagehttps://www.metabunk.org...
