I've found a helpful video that explains this. (HINT: You totally cheat)

What an idiot.

Place the camera angle just slightly below the level of the table, and you will only see the full height of the coin when it is at the front edge.

Raise the camera angle slightly so that you can just see the far end of the table edge (i.e. at the same level), and you will see the the full height of the coin all the way to the back edge. A two year old could work that out.

Assuming that he believes his Sun being 'small and far away' theory, then how does the Sun get to the other side of the Disc overnight?
Does it just skirt around the edge once it has gone over the horizon?
Oh minor flaw in that idea...

To believe in flat earth is an act of faith, It is unusual for a flerfer to accept the quite simple and overwhelming facts demonstrating the globe once they have swallowed the kool-aid, However the real issue is why so many people are taken in by this type of nonsense. It goes beyond simple science denial. A starter list incudes.

Anti evolutionists
Moon landings were a hoax
Climate change deniers

Crank diets, from breatharians down.
And others.

They are a bit like millennial cults. You know, the ones that predict the end of the world is coming on the whatever of whatever, based on some ancient texts. The date comes and goes and the world is still here, the rapture hasn't occurred. But the unperturbed cultists, rather than question their hypothesis, just adjust it slightly, assuming they just got their calculations wrong.

Some people are just desperate to believe what they believe. The evidence is just an annoyance. It's a fascinating psychological phenomenon.

Without considering just how much man power it would take to monitor such a huge distance.

If you like this sort of thing I recommend the Sci Man Dan channel on youtube as each week he picks a flat earth video and rips it to shreds.

The thing on Netflix was fake news and part of controlled oposition where actors act like loonies so that when people see them they automatically discredit "The truth" because the people promoting the theory are mad. Or something like that

But it's not like it's impossible to buy a globe if you want one. Or download Google earth.

As an aside, it's well worth looking up more of Jay Foreman's videos. There's an interesting one on the plans for urban motorways in London; and another mapmen one about deliberate mistakes in maps for copyright reasons
