What could be the ultimate flat earth photo? And, how can you get the ultimate picture of the flat earth? This is what every flat earther would like. I had thought about this about a month ago. Now, I’m putting this in print.
As I gave some thought to getting a great picture to help prove the earth is flat, I thought it still cost a couple of thousand dollars – so it is doable for many people.
The way to get a great picture would be to go on a tourist trip to the Antarctic. Or, it might be better to go on a cargo ship, as I’ll explain later. You would need permission first, but if you get it then you’re on your way. What you’ll need to take is a high altitude balloon with camera(s) mounted, and, of course, a tank filled with helium. Ideally, the camera will have to be able to transmit photos or video back to your laptop computer; this balloon should be able to reach 70.000 feet or more.
Why the Antarctic?
Simply because you are closest to the edge of the earth. All the pictures we’ve seen – whether it’s from a balloon or plane – is from a place that is thousands of miles from the edge. They’re usually taken somewhere in the Northern Hemisphere. But by taking the pictures in the Antarctic, you’re much closer to the edge.
How are is the edge from the Antarctic?
I don’t know but I’ve read it could be 300 miles. It might be more, it might be less. If the distance is too far – the picture will not be the ‘ultimate picture,’ as all you’ll see is a flat horizon.
What could the picture look like?
If the distance is not too far, we should see something different than just a flat horizon – we would see a curve. This curve, would not be because of a globe earth but a curve from a flat disk. There is a dome of some sort to keep our atmosphere in; the Bible calls it a ‘firmament.’ How does this firmament look like? I don’t know. It could be something that you can see, or it could be something that is transparent like. All of this is speculation, of course. If you can see through it, it might not be clear but you might be able to see the blackness of space; you might be able to see stars. And this blackness or other colour would be above the curve of the flat earth. If you were closer you might be able to see the abyss of the greater ocean, as the Bible speaks about.
Since the governments of the world will not allow you to fly across the Antarctic, the only way you can get an idea of what is further inland is from pictures of a high altitude balloon. Of course, the higher the balloon goes the further the distance you can see.
I’m sure I’m not the first person to think of this. Maybe NASA or some other space agency has already done this, I don’t know. They might have their pictures. In fact, I would be surprised if they don’t have their picture of the circular edge of the earth. Except for a few people of the earth, how this firmament looks like is a mystery.
If a tourist ship is not possible, it may be easier to take your cargo on a commercial barge that ships containers of goods. The location should be around Cape Horn as this would be closer to the coast of Antarctic. Tell the captain you are doing a documentary on this but don’t tell him anything about the flat earth. The company that owns the ship will make extra money and being on a commercial ship, taking a balloon and a tank of helium gas should pose no problem. You will want to know in advance how close commercial shipping will go to the coast, then do you calculation. If the distance is too far, you might not be able to get the pictures you want. You also want to check with a mathematician to calculate how far you can see if you are at 70,000 feet – or whatever altitude your balloon can go. Doing this first, will save you from wasting a trip.
Make a Documentary
It would be good to make a documentary on what you are doing, as this will give you something to sell to help finance your trip. Naturally, you should bring someone with you to help with the experiment and to take videos of your trip.
I know that people will pirate your documentary, as they do with everything but that doesn’t stop people from making films and selling them on the internet. This documentary would be of interest to many, so there should be some people who will buy it to cover your cost. However, the person who does this experiment should be willing to foot the bill for everything and not expect a return – the documentary sales will only be secondary. The main thing is, to get the ‘ultimate flat earth picture.’
The reason why I said a camera that can transmit photos back is better, is because if you have to retrieve the balloon, you might be able to retrieve it. If the balloon is sent up from a ship, it’ll land in the ocean and all your pictures will be lost. This way, if you get pictures sent back to your laptop, you don’t have to worry about the balloon. Don’t expect to get your camera back if you are launching the balloon from a ship.
Do such photos of the edge of the flat earth already exist?
I expect they do; I’m sure someone in the military has done this experiment before. The pictures might have been taken by a high altitude jet. However, there might be other countries who hasn’t done this. For example, Chile or Argentina could easily conduct their own experiments. Many counties have bases on the Antarctic where such tests with high altitude balloon could be flown. But the fact is, the public has no photos. So that is why an individual flat earther will have to do this.
There is a possibility that some whistle blower in some nation that could leak the photos on the internet. From there, flat earthers could download the pictures/videos, and use this evidence when talking to others about the flat earth. In the meantime, the only way to get pictures of the edge is for some ‘average person’ to do it and share it with the rest of the world.
