    The world is not flat because if you start at the equator and fly due east or west in a straight line you will at some point end where you started. Well, that and plenty of other reasons.

    What is the flat earth model? I don't even understand the plausibility of it.

    Flat Earth

    Flat Earth theory is the theory that the earth is actually a disk with the North Pole being the center of the disk. The South Pole is not actually a Pole but is the outer edge of the disk. Therefore, if you traveled east you would still end up at the place you started.

    Does the flat earth theory have an explanation for seasons?

    Flat Earth

    I have no clue... I don't necessarily believe it. Just thought it raised some interesting questions.

    For example, how is possible to see objects, with the help of optics, from distances that should be beyond our view due to the spherical shape of the earth? There is an equation for determining how far down an object should drop out of sight.

    Nearly positive there are places where you are able to see the earth's curve.

    Don't we have enough really good photos of the planet to know it's not flat?
