This is a recurring meme among flat earthers, but I don't think they've actually thought this through. If the earth is flat, why can't I see farther than 190 miles? Why can't I look over to night side of the disc and see the twinkling lights of distant cities? Why can't I, even with a telescope, see the "Great Ice Wall" of Antarctica? The horizon on a flat earth would look very different from what we actually see.

360° panorama from the summit of Mount St. Helens as seen on an early-October afternoon. In the foreground is the ice-covered crater rim. Visible in the lower center is the lava dome. Steam rises from several dome vents. Above the dome, in the upper center, lies Mount Rainier and Spirit Lake. Mount Adams appears to the right of Rainier on the horizon as well as Mount Hood and Mount Jefferson on the far right.

Les statues-autel, les ginin, affichent une représentation presque surréaliste de la tête. Ces personnages sont agenouillés, les fesses sur les talons et les mains au niveau de l'abdomen. Chaque tête (elles peuvent être multiples) se tourne vers un point de l’horizon. Sculptées à la demande d’un lignage, ces figures, vigilantes sur 360°, portaient une certaine responsabilité dans la défense de la famille.

If the earth is flat, then at that altitude I should be able to see London, Moscow, Tehran, Sydney, Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, and every other city on the planet as well as the "Great Ice Wall" of Antarctica from Chicago. But you can't. The horizon you see is the tangency between your line of sight and the earth's (globular) surface. Turn around 360 degrees and it would scribe a perfect (flat) circle. You would never see a curvature.

This is the first contiguous, uniform 360-degree color panorama taken by the Imager for Mars Pathfinder (IMP) over the course of sols 8, 9, and 10 (Martian days). Different regions were imaged at different times over the three Martian days to acquire consistent lighting and shadow conditions for all areas of the panorama. At left is a lander petal and a metallic mast which is a portion of the low-gain antenna. On the horizon the double "Twin Peaks" are visible, about 1-2 kilometers away. The…
