Recently, a reader in Tennessee took interest in our December Musings and a week later went up in a private plane around the Memphis metropolitan area. It was a sunny and cloudless day, and from about sixty miles out he noted that not only was the world flat for as far as he could see in every direction but he also could see all of Memphis’ most famous downtown landmark, The Pyramid, from the parking lot to the top. A month earlier, all this would have been meaningless to him because, as with the rest of the world, he had been programmed to know that the earth is “too big” to witness the alleged curvature with the naked eye, but from recent reading and video-watching, he had just learned that this was not true. Now he had the formula and knew that most or all of that skyline should have disappeared behind the earth’s curvature from sixty miles away. (20 miles equals 266 feet of earth’s curvature if any exists; 40 miles should reflect 1,066 and 60 miles away proposes 2,400 feet of curvature according to the age-old and NASA-accepted formula for measuring the 25,000 miles around the alleged globe.)
Henry Ford said in 1921, “History is Bunk,” referring to the assassination of the Austrian Prince as the reported cause of WWI rather than the actual fact that the banksters start all wars; and other myths written by Satan’s chosen deceivers. With his discerning eye and perspective, had Ford lived in this century, he might have been one of the first to uncover and report the biggest hoax of all. The 500-year-old belief that the earth is a spinning ball was a scientific theory impossible to prove or disprove and could not be until recent years. But with the modern-day scientific advancement of computers, the Internet, email and YouTube’s multiple exposures of NASA’S faked photos and destruction of incriminating data, the truth has been unveiled and spread to the multitudes that what we have been taught about a spinning earth, the sun, the moon, space and the universe has, indeed, been a big load of bunk. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then the modern-day Internet video is worth ten thousand or more.
It is not the earth being flat that agitates people, but the fact that the earth is not a globe, and any challenge to that lifelong false indoctrination is difficult to even bother with, let alone investigate — after all, why waste time on that? Everybody knows the earth is a globe! Even millions of Bible-believing church-goers have been programmed to accept supposed science over God’s word from “In the beginning” (Gen. 1). And at Gen. 1:16 we are told in plain English that God inserted two lights, a big one for the daytime and a lesser one for the night (Look it up), yet many of these same people not only believe the “scientific” baloney that the moon is a reflector of the sunlight but will argue all day that that is what the scripture actually says.

And of course, in these days of a faithless majority, there are many who have no use for God’s word, and for those who can pause their cursing and insults long enough, we have a simple test that can not only produce cash for the first participant but will make him/her a hero for all of history for being the one to prove once and for all the actual curvature of the earth (or the lack thereof). What follows is the test designed by our friend in Tennessee:
Northern Hemisphere Flat Earth Challenge!
Win $1000 and a Free Danube Cruise!
Prove that the Earth is spherical and win the Northern Hemisphere Flat Earth Challenge!
The centuries-old and NASA-accepted formula contends that the Earth has a curvature of 8.01 inches per mile squared. Let’s assume that the Earth is a perfect sphere of 8 inches (8”) per mile squared and prove them right or pretty dang close.
Fly your airplane or helicopter 61 miles directly south of your takeoff runway. Then turn 180 degrees back north.
As you turn your aircraft back to the north, level off at 2,400 feet, heading straight back to your takeoff runway.
Use only your compass and horizontal situation indicator on your straight and level return flight north.
Do not adjust your flight by using your altimeter. I suggest using independent tools to confirm the altitude and pitch, such as a six-foot level to confirm straight and level flight and a range finder to confirm the altitude. This gets rid of any internal aircraft gyro compensation arguments.
Maintain a 2,400 feet altitude and from the 60-mile point fly north to your take-off location. Again, using only your compass and horizontal situation indicator, fly north back to the takeoff runway always maintaining level flight.
Upon return at the takeoff point, if the Earth is flat, then you should be 2,400 feet over the takeoff runway.
If the Earth is a sphere, you should crash directly into the tarmac. Having proved, without a shadow of a doubt, that the Earth is a sphere, you can collect your prize money (posthumously).
60-Mile Earth Curvature Calculations
*The Earth is 8” of curvature per mile squared.
*There are 12 inches per foot.
*60 Mile Challenge
*Formula for curvature, distance is in US miles.
**Miles(squared) x 8”= Distance in inches.
**Divide by 12 to get feet.
60 miles x 60 miles = 3600 miles squared.
3600 x 8” of earth curvature = 28,800 inches/sm.
28,800 inches / 12 inches per foot = 2400 feet.
((60 x 60) x 8”) / 12 = 2400 feet.
The money will be sent to your next of kin. The Danube Cruise is for some or part of your ashes. Corpses’ or body parts are not allowed. Please have your heirs send in a newspaper article of the crash for authentication and publication to:
