    The scientific method is an incredible thing. I use it to test if the Earth is flat or round, and to measure its size, with just my bike and two sticks.
    Subscribing to my channel adds a drop of water to a cactus (named Sir Stabbington) in my house, and without that water, he will die. You can even go watch yourself water him in real time: kurtisbaute.com

    This experiment would have been impossible without the help from Casey, Ryan, Jessica, and everyone at the Saskatchewan Science Centre. They went above and beyond with this project, and their science centre is fantastic. Check out this place! www.sasksciencecentre.com/
    Here is the poll i reference at the start: today.yougov.com/topics/philosophy/articles-reports/2018/04/02/most-flat-earthers-consider-themselves-religious
    Also, I tested if the sun was far away or close to Earth. Its really far: ruclip.com/video/39uV_lr5oD0/video.html
    And I did an even easier experiment to test it again: kurtisbaute/status/1036255606414471168
    Something I didn't get into in my video but really wanted to, is that my experiment was different than Eratosthenes' in another small but significant way. His was done on the summer solstice, and in Syene instead of using a stick and a shadow, he used a well. At solar noon the light went directly down to the bottom of the well. This is the same as if a stick cast no shadow. Since he knew that this happened every year on that day, he only had to measure one shadow, and he didn't have to line things up like I did. But, I have bikes, planes, and the internet, so I can't complain.

    well in the flat earth model doesn't the sun still rotate in a circle around north pole? If that is so the shadows would still be different.

    • Gravity Wave Surfer
      Gravity Wave Surfer 3 months ago +107

      The only place the flat earth model works is the north pole while ignoring the entire southern hemisphere. The sun is not close. If it was then we could measure it easily.

    Couldn’t this also prove the earth is flat and the sun is much closer? Just asking a question. I just watched your answer video to this question. You made it very clear. Thank you.

    • Gravity Wave Surfer

      If the sun was close then it could easily be measured. Since it's not close it cannot be easily measured.

    Is gravity a intelligent force? Is it real? Why cant we feel that we are upsidedown? If i leave the ground but staying at the same spot in the air for like 3days, will i be somewhere else when i land?

    • sfrvtma
      sfrvtma 3 months ago +32

      No because the air around you moves in a circle and pushes you too

    • Gravity Wave Surfer
      Gravity Wave Surfer 3 months ago +115

      There is no top to a ball and no magic down direction. The gasses on this planet are rotating with the liquids and solids. If they were not then there would be mega-tornado force winds all the time.

    No No No as the sun moves overhead, you will get differences on your globe or a flat earth

    • Gravity Wave Surfer
      Gravity Wave Surfer 3 months ago +121

      The sun does not move. It's actually really easy to tell the difference between something moving past you and something only appearing to move because you are turning. All the observations show turning... not sky motion.

      Gravity Wave Surfer 3 months ago +41

      @mrdave2112 Your whining about Pluto is irrelevant and exposes your ignorance. The idea that when we get better data on an object 5 BILLION miles away that we probably should update our definitions ... means maybe we can't tell what shape the earth is???... that's nothing but childish idiocy.

    • mrdave2112
      mrdave2112 3 months ago

      Gravity Wave Surfer, I do have difficulty distinguishing BS from reality. I honestly can not tell you if Pluto is a planet or not. I really wish NASA would make up their mind on what reality is.

    • Gravity Wave Surfer
      Gravity Wave Surfer 3 months ago +29

      @mrdave2112 The only issue to resolve is ignorance. Flat earth requires a glowing moon and can't explain sundials or sunsets. You would like to pretend otherwise... I see by your channel that you have trouble distinguishing BS from reality.

    • mrdave2112
      mrdave2112 3 months ago

      Gravity Wave Surfer, I have nothing but good things to say about Ball Earthers and Flat Earthers. I commend both groups for trying to address this issue of the shape of the earth. Both groups are doing excellent work and hopefully they will some day agree one way or the other. I encourage both groups to continue working hard to resolve this issue.

    • Gravity Wave Surfer
      Gravity Wave Surfer 3 months ago +30

      @mrdave2112 But sundials work on a globe earth.... and the moon isn't glowing magic light. So whatever you have to say about "ball earthers" is irrelevant.

    Great to see you put time into your video, but how come we cant see the curve of the globe, could you please do an experiment to prove the curve, calculation, thank you

    • Gravity Wave Surfer
      Gravity Wave Surfer 3 months ago +36

      @Daz Willott That's correct. If you saw a curve left to right, that curve would need a "top". The curve would need to continue curving down on each side where it would meet up behind you and of course below you. That's not how it works. There is no "top" to a ball... if you want to pick a spot by your perspective that would be your "top" it would be the spot directly under your feet.... not some location off in the horizon... RIGHT???

    • Daz Willott

      What do you mean you cannot see the curve? I can see it crossing an 8 mile land bridge between cities every day. You can't see the back of a ball either but I can assure you they all have a back by your perspective.

    • Gravity Wave Surfer
      Gravity Wave Surfer 3 months ago +97

      @Victor Wallin Sorry Victor but sundials require a sun that is moving at a constant speed all day and every day. Not only is it impossible for the sun to cross a flat earth sky without changing angular velocity (appearing to speed up as it gets close and slow down as it moves away) but the fact that the sun moves between the tropics makes it even worse for you. On flat earth, Capricorn would be twice the length of Cancer requiring the sun to move twice as fast just to make around in 1 day. As you can see.... flat earth is impossible. Now we'll see if you can admit that.

    • Victor Wallin
      Victor Wallin 3 months ago +2

      @Gravity Wave Surfer Yes. Yes they do. Because the earth "being round" has nothing what so ever to do with it. It has to do with the sun TRAVELLING OVER THE EARTH. It goes around the earth, and (if mathematics and logic is to be used in any way) it works on a flat earth too.
      Not that a globe earther actually use logics ever. "BUT THE NASA CGI SAYS ITS GLOBE AND ALL EYES AND MEASUREMENTS LIE. OBEY THE GOVERNMENT. BE GAY"
      Evil retards.

    • Gravity Wave Surfer

      no it does not. Sundials can't even work on a flat earth.

    This is fine but the sun on flat earth is very small , the problem is still thinking the globular beliefs mixed with the infinite plain of existence beliefs, it's not easy to do with all the brainwash already in the brains, there is no proof of globular earth or the infinite plain of existence, however I want to see the extra continents beyond the south pole, your bike ride did nothing for this infinite plain guy, you need to explain a whole lot more if that's all you got, the gravity cult has nothing left to say except globular regergitation, that's making you eat chewed food and that's horrible, the globe is dead to us infinite plain of existence people, fail again and again the globe fails all tests , run my little ones run within the firmament farm Yard run.

    Don't flat earthers believe the sun is close and circles the earth at varying latitudes during the year to create the seasonal weather changes? Wouldn't this also explain the difference in shadow length between different cities at varying latitudes?

    • Gravity Wave Surfer
      Gravity Wave Surfer 3 months ago +9

      How does the sun change latitude on a flat earth without increasing the length of the track and requiring faster speed to make it around on one day? The tropic of Capricorn would be twice as long as Cancer

    I think the whole "sun watch" thing was already disproved by flat earthers in a sense that there is no obvious conclusion that different shadows mean round earth (as the sun does move in both theories consequently the shadows will change length & position anyway), it's basically equally working on a flat plane too due to the moving sun, it's only about the conclusion one draws from this, so nah, it's just another propaganda BS haven't really checked the actual counterpart's argument, pretty much worthless then... there's no necessity to conclude a globe earth from those shadows!

    • Gravity Wave Surfer

    btw, the entire premise of your test (although i applaud your efforts) is in error. The exact same findings can be the effect of a flat plane earth, and a local sun......as your high priest Neil tyson admitted himself. There is a giant hole in this experiment, and it proves nothing. good day.

      How does crossing the Equator (which would happen, as with any geodesic route) prevent the same geodesic route from passing through California? The geodesic from Boston to LA appears to leave Boston at pretty close to 270 degrees.

    There are two(2) possibilities that you proved, you didn’t disprove anything. With the sun at the correct distance, and size, the same result would occur no matter the theory we choose to believe. This test only shows the result. We don’t control the controls, or the variables, we can only observe the result. Where is commercial space travel? Why does NASA say we have never been able to go outside the Van Allen belts? And at the same time they say the moon is outside that. It means we never went to the moon, no one has, or we did go and it’s lots closer than we were told. At which time they saw the bases, the ones the Anunnaki built. Nimrod, the one who built the Tower of Babel, worshipped Anu. He worshipped Gods creation, the watchers, or Nephalim as it’s called in the Bible.

    That face you make in the presence of the truth......

    • EyesToSee
      EyesToSee 3 months ago

      @Gravity Wave Surfer also, using simple trigonometry, you measure the suns estimated distance. Amd if you learn how they came to the distance of the sun on the globe earth, and when, it is total assumption and impossible to measure at that distance. Juat like the layers of the globe earth i.e. crust mantel etc. When the deepest hole ever dug is less than 8 miles. How do they know what is in the "core"? Argue the facts, not your beLIEf.

    • EyesToSee

      @Gravity Wave Surfer I'm not arguing for either side here. Only stating the facts as I've come by them in my investigation... That said, Sundials also work on a flat earth model. They actually were made with a falt earth assumption, amd work exactly how they were designed.

    • David Mescher
      David Mescher 3 months ago +1

      @rocha333 If you want to throw on some more conditions, any claims of nearby planetary/stellar bodies being close need to be backed up with a distance that is consistent regardless of where you measure from. Along with how that distance was derived.

    • David Mescher
      David Mescher 3 months ago +2

      @rocha333 Well, you'd need a proposed alternate shape/model of the Earth that also meets the following conditions:
      * An accurate, scale, distortion-free map or model.
      * Be accurate (to at least the nearest degree, if not more precise) in predictions of elevation & azimuth at given dates/times regarding bodies such as the Sun, Moon, other planets, and stars.
      * Explain the 15 degrees per hour observed rotation of the Earth. Or have a quantifiable and testable model for why gyroscopes precess (assuming their construction doesn't introduce precession of its own) at 15 degrees per hour. (So, if you're going to claim like Knodel did, that it's "Heaven energies" or some other claptrap, you'd better have some means of testing for it and numbers to back it up.)

      @rocha333 Already told you. An accurate, scale, distortion-free map of the flat Earth. (Which rules out the Azimuthal Equidistant Projections, since those are heavily distorted everywhere south of 45N.)

      David Mescher I can see you're not interested in abandoning the globe myth. I will give you a last chance. What would you accept as evidence that the earth is not a ball?

      if you had common sense then you would look at the moon and admit it's not glowing magic light.

      Have you seen the moon lately? It's still not glowing magic light. Better get to work on that if you want flat earth to have a chance.

    16% chance you are you are wrong means, there is an 84% chance the earth is flat.Now thats simple math. If your math is correct and every expeiment that has been conducted has never been accurate, how do you except people to beleive ? your math is out by 6400 kms. How can an experiment that comes within 16% accuracy be held up ? Observations must be air tight other wise there is a margin of error that cannot be explained. So 40,075 km in circunference, now minus 6400 km equals 33,325 kms c. Now add 6400 kms and you get 46075 kms. So you are wihin 12000 kms which is not good enough. Your test only proves that you are wrong. If the sun is so far away it can be perceved that the sun is coming in staright lines you would need more an 136 kms of distance. Even 800 kms is only 2% of the earths surface in this case whioch is not enough scientifically to make a sample of anything. CMON guys the only way to prove it is to go into space and see for yourself and since only freemasons and elitist familys aree allowed to go we can accuratly say with out needing of proof that no on eactually knows. do any other expeiment with a sample of 1% and you cannot accuratly predict anything except for the fact that the experiment is flawed .

      Is the moon glowing magic light yet?? No??? Well then I guess you got your answer. 0% flat earth.

    This can occur also if the sun is close under the firmament, all this showed was that Canada has a perfectly flat road that makes for an easy bike ride. Very smart people did experiments in the past that proved the stationary plane we live on, but the liars won’t put that in our Scientology books.

      @Rick 3 All the visible stars are the closest stars. They are all in the same spiral arm of the milky way, moving in the same direction as our star. The moon is not glowing magic light and you worship ignorance, not a god. Satan loves your ignorance and lies.

      @Gravity Wave Surfer The only fool in this scenario is you, considering your IQ is so low you can't even see that there is ZERO parallax in the stars over the course of your "millennium" of navigation. Slowly circling, day in and day out, just like God said. No matter how hard you cry, no matter how much you kick and scream, you WILL bend your knee to the God you hate without a cause. If I were you I would consider your eternity.

    • Gravity Wave Surfer
      Gravity Wave Surfer 3 months ago +18

      @Rick 3 Sorry fool but you have never been awake. The star map is a sphere. It cannot be made into any other shape without distortion and it has been used for navigation for millennium. You can even go out at night and watch the obvious sphere sky roll around you at night. It's not spinning above you like your fantasies require. Not only is the moon visually not glowing magic light but sundials cannot even work on flat earth. If you were honest then you would question the fact that you have NOTHING for a flat earth model that accurately explains anything about the sky or the land.

    This method is flawed in many ways, as was the case when done 2000 years ago. But, won't get into all that in order to avoid a debate. Aside from that in itself, you state that your final results were inaccurate by 17 percent and Eratosthenes had an inaccuracy of 16 percent. What are you using as a control number to determine the rates of inaccuracy? Eratosthenes results are the only ones ever to be accepted as accurate, yet, you are saying those are not? In all these years, and with all the technology we now possess, oddly no process of measurement has ever officially been performed since Eratosthenes put his 2 sticks in the ground. Science still considers this primitive test to be correct. I am not implying the earth is flat (or spherical), only that there are no conclusive results. What has been tested and proven using curvature formulas and measuring rate of drop beyond the horizon, is that Eratosthenes estimate of circumference is in fact wrong. Maybe someday an accurate method will be performed.

      There have been many measurements of the Earth's circumference since Eratosthenes did his.
      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth%27s_circumference

      Eratosthenes gets a lot of credit, since his measurement was the earliest recorded one.

      The thing about the bible, is that it doesn’t tell you how to prove something for yourself. What Kurtis did, though, was take something that was told to him, and check if it was true. You at least have to applaud that.
