The Trouble with Sunsets (Examining the Flat Earth with no help from NASA)

I recently wrote an article for Creation Today about the different ways in which Young Earth Creationists (YEC’s) and Flat Earthers interpret the Bible. You can read it here: https://creationtoday.org/flat-earth-vs-creationism-a-biblical-perspective/

In reply, I had a fellow named Scott imply that I had misunderstood and therefore misrepresented the perspective of Flat Earth believing Christians. During a jaunty bit of back and forth, I was reintroduced to some of the many arguments and evidences which are used in defense of the Flat Earth. One of these is an explanation for the sunset.

According to the flat earth model, the Earth is a essentially flat plane (as opposed to a ball) and the sun orbits around the north pole about 3,000 miles overhead (The sun is either 40 miles across or 300 miles across, depending on how you ask. Yeah, I know. There’s not one standard accepted flat earth model as of yet.). So how do they explain the appearance of sunset? It certainly looks as if the sun descends the sky and then falls below the horizon every day which, of course, fits the globe model we’ve been told in school but not the flat earth model. The answer, I was told, is simple. It’s all a matter of perspective.

The Sun Does NOT Exist!

I’ve been talking with a flat earther- or whatever the term is which denotes a person who believes the earth is flat but does not also indicate a scathing and self important disdain for that person. His name is Scott, and thus far he has been very polite.

So Scott sent me a video which tries to explain that the sun “setting” is an illusion based on perspective. It’s pretty simple- if you’ve ever watched a plane fly overhead, you will notice that as it approaches, it starts out low in your field of vision and then appears to get HIGHER until it is over you, and then appears to get LOWER as it disappears toward the horizon- but it’s staying the same distance from the ground. The sun does the same thing (so the theory goes) and since this is what we observe when a plane at a constant and fairly close distance moves overhead, so it proves that the sun is also moving at a constant distance over us and only APPEARING to get higher and lower.

Well, I thought that would be easy to debunk, so I decided to take some pictures of the sun through a heavy filter to show that the sun doesn’t get SMALLER as it gets lower the way it should if it were close by and moving parallel to a flat surface. I thought, if I could show that the sun doesn’t change size, then this would debunk this theory.

But then I went outside. Continue reading

The Reason Atheists Troll Christians

Since starting my apologetics blogs about a decade ago, I have noticed a strange thing. Persons claiming to be Atheists will show up in my comments sections, saying horrible things- telling me I’m an idiot, calling me a liar, etc. And they show up a LOT. You sort of get used to it after a while, like the stench from that pile of laundry you have been meaning to get to for a couple of weeks. Oh, wait, it’s April already? Ok so… well, the laundry has been a thing for a long time now. And it stinks. But you get used to it. That’s all I’m saying.

I admit that modern art isn’t that good…

In reply to: https://abitoforange.com/2018/01/08/modern-art-sucks-because-atheism-is-stupid/

Your point is extremely flawed. Art doesn’t come from God, it comes from imagination. Now I admit that modern art isn’t that good, but I’m not in any position to critique anyone’s art style, and neither are you. Art is supposed to tell a story, have a meaning. What that meaning is, is up to the artist entirely. So no, there isn’t one true, explicit definition of art, because it varies from person to person. Saying atheism is making art bad is extremely foolish because it means that you are just a very closed minded person and you don’t open yourself up to the possibilities. Maybe I’m biased because I don’t necessarily think that the existence of God is likely, but directly blaming bad art on atheism is, to be blunt, dumb.

Greetings Carley,
Your comment is extremely flawed. I write these blog posts to communicate- to tell a story and have a meaning. What that meaning is, is up to me entirely. Criticizing my posts is extremely foolish because it means that you are just a very closed minded person and you don’t open yourself up to the possibilities. YOU are not in any position to critique MY blog posts.

(Are you going to apologize now? Have I shown you that you should NEVER offer a negative opinion about my writings ever again?
Has it occurred to you that I simply said to you what you said to me?
It should have. I think it was kind of obvious.) Continue reading
