92) “The Notre Dame Antwerp spire stands 403 feet high from the foot of the tower with Strasburg measuring 468 feet above sea level. With the aid of a telescope, ships can be distinguished on the horizon and captains declare they can see the cathedral spire from an amazing 150 miles away. If the Earth were a globe, however, at that distance the spire should be an entire mile, 5,280 feet below the horizon!”
What's that even supposed to mean?
"The Notre Dame Antwerp spire stands 403 feet high from the foot of the tower with Strasburg measuring 468 feet above sea level."
Strasbourg is a city in France, 235 miles away from Antwerp. What does that have to do with anything?
"..and captains declare they can see the cathedral spire from an amazing 150 miles away"
Which cathedral do the captains allegedly see? The one in Strasbourg or Antwerp? And can you name one captain that "declares" to see whatever you say they are seeing, and how exactly did they measure these incedible 150 miles? Strasbourg is 300 miles away from any kind of shoreline!
150 miles from Antwerp, that is almost twice the distance to Amsterdam. And you can't even see Amsterdam from Antwerp!
Again, see #82 as to why this claim is worthless, apart from the fact that the places and distances are absolute nonsense to begin with.
Sir, we've discovered a Mirage Denier.
Yeah, I'm getting pretty tired of this. It'd be pretty amazing if there was a flat earther that didn't go full confirmation bias on us. I've seen mirages, scores of them - as has everyone else, but most people don't notice. On the other hand, I'm the sort of person that's on the watch for it. So I saw a few floating ships, looming mountains in geneva (in retrospect - I've never seen mountains before. I'm from the Netherlands.) I've been noticing it on the roads, rather often.
