Top 10 Proofs the Earth is Round

For the small percent of people who believe otherwise here you go

The Top Ten

1 We have photographic evidence

The earth is as flat as an anime girl's chest - RoseWeasley

People have not believed the earth is flat for a long time, anyone who believed it is dead.
And yes, I know about the Internet joke. But do we take everything the Internet says seriously?


There is no way to change the small percentage of peoples mind once a person is hard set that the earth is flat their not changing their mind for anything, just like the urine drinkers, and antivaxxers - germshep24

2 We have personal accounts

Earth is flat. Amateur balloon footage without fish-eye lens shows a flat surface even 120k feet in the air. Many examples of being able to see things farther than you should if there was a curve, etc.

3 You can walk in a triangle (on earth's surface)

If you walked 10,000 kilometers to miles straight along the Earth's surface, turn 90 degrees right walk 10,000 kilometers more turn right again and walk another 10,000 kilometers you will be back to where you started, having successfully made a triangle with 3 90 degree angles, this is impossible on a flat surface. - BreakFastBeast2005

4 We have time zones

It the earth was flat the sun's lightwould be equally distributed everywhere all the time - BreakFastBeast2005

Yet if Earth were completely round, the shadows the Sun casts on everything would turn a different direction than they currently do. - Gregory

5 Other planets are round

Every other planet we have seen is round so what would make the earth any different - BreakFastBeast2005

6 The stars at night change as you go north to south
7 We can see ships on the horizon

Emerging ships "appear"out the horizon due to the earth's curvature - BreakFastBeast2005

8 Magellan circumnavigated the earth

However he didn't prove how much bigger Earth is at its middle and the fact that geology and mountains prevent it from being truly spherical in the first place. - Gregory

9 The sun gets lower and lower
10 The Coriolis effect is a thing

The Coriolis effect is defined as how a moving object seems to veer toward the right in the Northern hemisphere and left in the Southern hemisphere. An example of the Coriolis effect is hurricane winds turning left in the Northern hemisphere. - BreakFastBeast2005
