IS THE EARTH FLAT?

A British resident in Benidorm (Alicante, Spain) offers 10,000 euros to whoever gives him a photograph that proves Earth is not flat, that is, in which at least a part of the Earth’s circumference is appreciated.

Howard George Stirrup told EFE he is convinced that the surface of the planet is flat and has hung the challenge in his Facebook profile and on YouTube, where he has received thousands of visits “but no photographs”.

Stirrup started offering 1,000 euros and now, even more convinced of his hypothesis, has raised the reward to 10,000.

The Briton bases his unwavering faith in the supposed mathematical laws that indicate that for each mile of square distance there should be about twenty centimeters of curve according to the theory defended in the Pythagorean school.

If that were the case, he says, “how is it possible that from Benidorm we can see the entire buildings of San Juan without losing sight of the first floors due to the supposed circumference of the earth? There are 33 kilometers away. “

An example that extends to other places in geography that, in his opinion, show that the spherical property of the planet does not exist.

Read translation of the transcription:

“I’m going to put ten thousand euros of my money for someone who can help me show the curve because I do not think we live in a sphere, I do not know if it’s flat, I’d like us to stop with contradictory weird theories and explanations and I’m fed up to see only one test source, NASA, because there is a lot on the Internet that shows that they have made false applications in their videos and in their images that are not photos that are images by Photoshop.”
