You wouldn't use a fisheye lens to shutdown flat earthers. I doubt that was the intention of the video or its creators.

You use a fisheye, despite the distortion, to get a wide-angle image.

Someone wanted to see as much as they could of the horizon and didn't care about camera distortion, they just wanted to make a cool video. Flat earthers were probably the last thing on their mind.

IIRC, someone sent a Canon camera with very little lens distortion attached to a balloon into the stratosphere, it showed noticeable curvature at 100-150,000 feet.



I'm not suggesting that the video was made to disprove flat earthers, I'm just saying that most of the YT comments were along the lines of "flat earthers debunked" or "what do flat earthers have to say now?".
To which there was a number of counter responses from said "flat earthers" who say that the fish eye lens is deceptive.

I'm just trying to figure this shit out like you are.

flat earthers are idiots.

I noticed their momentum has waned

You rarely resort to ad hominem. This is one of the few areas where it seems that you haven’t done enough truly open-minded research.

IMO, if someone considers the evidence for flat earth truly objectively, at the very least, they will conclude that they’re no longer certain about the globe earth THEORY. The evidence for flat earth, much of which is available in this very thread, is quite compelling.

i honestly looked into it as much I could.. and I have concluded that in practical terms the earth is not flat and is a globe

if you're going to into cosmology and theoretical physics and the nature of reality then the universe may be flat but projected as 3D.

RE: Flat Earth Discussion Thread
the sphere is a natural object you can encounter in nature

roll a snow ball..

take a bath, see bubble spheres everywhere

chew some gum and blow a bubble

also the other planets you can see with the naked eye are round like the moon, venus etc.

there is no reason for the earth to be flat
