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
