Sunsets and Sunrises on the Flat Earth

This video below is the best that I have seen on the subject of sunsets (and sunrises) on the flat earth model, as opposed to the globe/round/sphere/ball earth model that we were all conditioned to believe growing up.

If you are new to the idea of flat earth, you might find this to be a very confusing subject and a difficult concept to grasp at first. And it is so difficult to grasp (at least it has been for me) because of the years and years of conditioning in school, on TV, in movies, and pretty much everywhere else.

What we are seeing when we witness a sunset (or a sunrise) is not the sun going over the horizon due the supposed spin of the Earth on its supposed axis. What we are actually seeing is all a matter of the perspective of the observer relative to the sun.

So the sun is actually making one revolution around the Earth, which is not moving, once every 24 hours. The sun stays at the same height (most likely, no one really knows actually) as it makes its revolution, and it goes around the North Pole, which is at the center of the Flat Earth.

The sun appears from our view to get higher in the sky as the time of day moves towards Noon, but it does not. The sun is actually just getting closer to the observer as it makes its daily revolution around the earth. An object that is in the sky that is closer to us will appear higher than an object that is far away. The far away object will appear lower in the sky and closer to the horizon even though that object is still at the same height that it was at when it was closer to the observer.

What we now call “the sun going over the horizon so that no more light can be seen” is simply the sun having traveled so far away from us (in its daily revolution) that we can no longer see it. Just like if there was a straight road that was miles and miles long, and I started walking away from you, eventually I would disappear from your sight (from your prospective).

By the way, the sun also appears to get smaller and smaller as it moves away from the observer. Of course the sun is not actually getting smaller. As we know from our everyday experience, objects that are further away from us appear smaller. Most of the time we do not actually see the sun disappear from our view and “melt” into the actual horizon because, from our vantage point, the sun will appear to vanish behind a false land horizon or a false cloud horizon (the video below does a good job explaining this).

Again, if you are new to all of this, I would advise that you give your mind plenty of time to absorb this new idea. There might be some people who will “get it” right away, but most likely your mind will need some time to adjust. Don’t get frustrated if you don’t comprehend this right away. Just keep listening and striving to understand, and it will sink in. Watch this video below…
