Bernie, do you agree with the following?

 

1. The earth is a circular sphere (for this discussion at least), the most you could see, even from infinity,  is 50% of the planet
 

2. Regardless of how far you are from earth, your view would be that of a complete circle

1-yes

2- has nothing to do with the height issue.. and i believe your outer peripherals are greater, so not really a circle

He's not claiming the earth is flat. He's claiming the space launch is/was a hoax, with thousands and thousands of people in on it. The AIDS have damaged his brain. 

Oh lmao my bad. I came  into it late. I’m not sure if that’s better or worse actually.

if you count the outer space part , its kinda close

Have you not learned anything from what I shared? You can never view more than 1/2 the earth, or any planet for that matter, at a time, because the earth is a circular sphere, 50% of it is always facing away from you, regardless of the distance from it or your location.

 

From the ISS you can see roughly 1/3 of the earth. It will appear as a complete circular object, however you are not seeing all that you could see (1/2) if you were further away from it. 

 

Now stiffle yourself Edith!
