The Way This Guy Proves Earth Is Not Flat Is Brilliant

We all were there when Elon Musk was asking "The Flat Earth Society" the important questions, poking at the reasoning behind the theory that Earth is, in fact, a flat disc. While flat-earthers seem to lack substantial arguments in the debate and it seems quite obvious what the answer to the age-old question is.






imgur user GregPagel’s views were challenged after he snapped a photo of Lake Michigan. After examining the photos, Greg, a 47-year-old musician from Manitowoc, realized that the horizon he captured seemed quite flat, instantly raising doubts about everything he knew about Earth.


I’ve often looked at the horizon over that lake–thousands of times–and wondered “am I seeing a curve? I’m not sure. Maybe a little? Or is my mind playing tricks?” As a kid, I’d look at it a lot” Greg told Bored Panda. So, he did what any other person would do, he used science! “When I actually did the math and made the diagram, I actually felt a rush” Pagel recalled.

Using Google Earth and some calculations he was able to figure it all out and share the surprising results with the world. Scroll down to see what he found out yourself!

Yesterday, imgur user Greg took some pictures in Manitowoc, Wisconsin


He snapped some beautiful panorama shots of Lake Michigan








However, he quickly noticed that something odd about the photographs



The horizon seemed pretty… flat



So Greg did what any other person would do and used science to figure it all out





From using Google Earth to graphs, the man dove head-first into the challenge


















And it was no surprise that he figured it out



And here’s your answer! 0.12 curve is barely noticeable, but it’s still a curve!
