JLBE1610 | Flat Earth ‘Horizon Always Rises to Eye Level’ Argument

In this video I discuss my views regarding an argument which, some people posit, supports the notion that we live on a ‘flat earth’, a theory which has obviously enjoyed what might be termed a ‘renaissance’ over the past 12 months or so, especially here on youtube. The argument in question relates to the observed horizon, which some claim can be seen to ‘rise to eye level’ no matter how high up from the ground an observer rises. The argument goes that this should not be the case if we live on a giant ball.
