This Guy Found a Genius Way to Prove that Earth is not Flat

We all were present when Elon Musk was asking ‘The Flat Earth Society” the major questions, poking at the argument behind the crazy theory that Earth is a flat disc. While flat-earthers lack solid arguments in the debate and it is quite apparent what the answer to the question is, imgur user GregPagel’s views were a bit challenged after he snapped a picture of Lake Michigan.


After examining the images, Greg, a 47-year-old musician from Manitowoc, realized that the horizon seemed quite flat, which instantly raised doubts about everything he knew about planet 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. Therefore, 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 remembered. Using Google Earth and some calculations he managed to figure it all out and share the results with the world. Scroll down to check out what he discovered!

“The fun part was showing a .12 degree arc on a circle. It’s almost nothing!” – Greg told Bored Panda

Here is your answer! 0.12 curve is barely noticeable, but it is still a curve!

  1. Surely the flat earthers are going to say that you are assuming that the earth is a sphere when describing the circumference as 25,000 miles. The observer is standing on a flat surface so there is no circumference perpendicular to the observation point, therefore the whole argument falls flat - looney or not

  2. Actually, prove water can curve.

  3. This isn't actually proof. But..
    Actually you wouldn't see a curve anyway. Need to draw to show what I'm talking about but from any direction while looking at something curving away from you, you will see it fall away at the same distance in any direction so will always seem flat.

  4. Ever go for a drive in the country and feel like going fast. I use to have a car that went over 100 MPH. It was fun feeling the speed. Now image if you could go over 1,000 MPH. O, wait. You don't have too. (25,000 mile circumference) divided by (24 hour spin) equal 1,000+ MPH, feel the speed man ??? #:^O
