The moon’s umbral tail is about 400,000 km long.

You have something gravely wrong with your math, and I really don’t have time to figure out what all it is. I’m fairly certain it’s surface area, and how much wider the Earth is compared to the moon that you are not taking into account.
So what are those numbers based off, what's the source for those calculations. How were these figured out the length of the Umbra?

From what I see it's made up bullshit.

My math I used is proportional math I used the correct diameter of the moon and earth to figure what earths true shadow width should be on the surface of the moon. There is nothing wrong with it if there is please point it out. But as far as I'm concerned this is yet another inconsistency in the globe model.

Yeah it’s the size of the Earth, which is 3.7x larger than the Moon.

See you say you used proportional math but you didn’t take into account that the two objects you are measuring are, uh, spheres.
So you just calculated them like they were a straight line, and you missed out on the fact they are, you know, round and have a surface area. Which if we all remember our math correctly, we have to treat circles different than we do lines in our calculations.

You didn’t use the right formula, Kyle.

Here’s a dude on YouTube doing stuffs with math, that seems ever so slightly more complex than what you just did.

Its about solar eclipses

How do you explain the guy that flew around the world in an aeroplane twice, anyway?

The thing I love about the flat Earth model there
Look at what it does to Africa and Australia and how it disfigures them

Think about how it stretches the distance between those two. That flight would be so much longer.

Other than that, your argument has pursuaded me.

I don't know if this has been mentioned or not as the fact that people believe that the Earth is flat gets really irritating when the 'facts' they use are very much flawed. I can't read through all of that. Please explain to me how observable bodies, excluding asteroids, have some sort of spherical shape. If the Earth was flat, why would everything else be different? And please do not even try to make the argument that they are all just circles that are revolving around the Earth. That couldn't be possible as all the stars that are visible do not produce light in any irregular forms such as an oval if the star was at an angle to the earth.

Earlier you were making an argument that gravity does not exist. Explain to me why a majority of asteroids have irregular shapes up until they reach a certain size. There are no differences in density in space as there is a lack of matter to influence this. What force could possibly result in this?
Sometimes theory and logic don't match reality, and that's when the most exciting discoveries happen.

I realise I am off time by like 7 months by now, but I do have a genuine question for the flat-earthers that apparently exist here:

How do you explain the south pole with the commonly accepted flat-earth model? Or any flat-earth model for that matter?

It would appear they do not believe it exists, though I cannot say for certain. I cannot make heads or tails of this whacky thread.
