    Convex Earth: The Documentary, 2018


    After seven years of research on earth format, scientific experiments carried out by Brazilian researchers at Dakila Research and the
    Zigurats Technological Center in partnership with professionals from various areas of Brazil and other countries, such as the United States, Russia, Chile, the Netherlands, Spain, have shown that the Earth is not spherical.

    The evidence is being presented in the feature film Terra Convexa: The Documentary, available in three languages: Portuguese, English and Spanish and published on the websites terraconvexa.com.br and convexearth.org

    Seven scientific experiments were carried out, including the geodesic, which consisted in measuring the distances between the bases and tops of a building in Torres (RS) and another in Natal (RN), with a distance of 3,050 km between them, reference to sea level. "The measurements were the same. If the Earth were spherical, the measure of the distance between the bases should be smaller than the measurement between the upper parts of the buildings because they would be following the curvature of the Earth, "explains Urandir de Oliveira, founder of Dakila Research. Engineers from the National Institute of Colonization and Agrarian Reform (INCRA) participated in the action.

    A long-range laser was used to measure the flatness and leveling of the waters at the Três Marias Dam (MG); in Lagoa dos Patos (RS), on Lake Titicaca, Peru; and in the seas of Ilhabela (SP) and in the Strait of Gibraltar. The tests performed up to 35 km did not identify any curvature.

    Experiments with refracting and reflecting telescopes have proved that boats do not disappear on the horizon,
    but we lost the ability to observe them due to an optical phenomenon. This phenomenon was studied by the researchers, who formulated a new physical theory, which explains physically and mathematically how this works.

    Experiments with plumbing (verticalization) and level (horizontalization) have proved that gravity does not exist, because the physical behavior of water is to seek its original form, that is, flatness. According to Urandir, what holds us firm to the ground is the MDPL (magnetism, density, pressure, and
    light).

    Through images obtained through several atmospheric probes launched by the researchers, as well as of incursions made, including in Antarctica, with the collaboration of the Armed Forces of Brazil, as well as other analyzes of materials found in glaciers of Siberia and the shores of the Arctic Glacial Ocean , such as pollen, dust and other fragments, a new continent, known as the "Greater North", was discovered, separated by a large mass of ice.

    The trajectory of the stars, including the Sun and the Moon, is totally different from what science says. The new information enabled the correct positioning of the continents.

    The complete research information, with regard to equipment, coordinates, images, all techniques, research content, technical reports, scientific papers, mathematical calculations and proposed theories will be available soon on the websites
    http://www.terraconvexa.com.br and http://convexearth.org

    A book with the complete compilation of the research will be released soon.

    These flat earth people still exist? You can see the curvature of the earth from an airplane and if you have flown around the world you realize the curve keeps going.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but you do know that even if the earth were a sphere - which is disputable - you would still not be able to see its curvature from the window of a plane. You would need to be at a height of at least 40,000 ft to get even a hint of the earth's curvature - if the earth were round. Commercial aircrafts are not allowed to fly that high. Additionally, the windows on commercial airplanes are small and heavily curved, which gives you the illusion of a curvature. So even if they flew high enough for a person to see the curvature, it would still not be visible to passengers. You sound to me like the type who believes everyhing is taught at school, or written in a book.

    I've flown at 35000 feet over the Pacific, Puerto Vallarta to Los Angeles and you can very surely see the curve.

    Also I've climbed to the top of isolated mountain ranges in Montana the exist on the prairie and looking East you can see the prairie curve north to south.

    The flat earth BS is fun to read about on Pinterest, but it does lower your IQ after awhile.

    If any such "experiment" even happened at all, that is.

    Boggles the mind, how anyone can seriously doubt something as easily proven and basic as this, which has even been known millenia before the creation of any modern scientific method.

    Umm what about space travel and the pictures they took...oh wait I guess you don't believe man has ever left the atmosphere.

    It has nothing to do with conspiracies but with air rarity. Fly too high and the oxygen becomes too sparse to fuel the engines.

    Those evil airplane-people! How dare they!
    Again, nothing to do with conspiracies but with how the windows are made. If you are seated near the wings and look outside, not only the earth looks curved, but also the wings. As in this video below, for example (the dude who made it thought he made some ultra discovery, but as they say, the proof is in the pudding):



    So before making simplistic deducions like "the earth is round because I can see the curvature from a plane", consider that curved windows and fish eye lenses give that optical illusion.

    Have you watched the video? Before you ridicule people, you should at least have an idea what they are talking about. Do you?

    Boggles the mind, how anyone can seriously doubt something as easily proven and basic as this, which has even been known millenia before the creation of any modern scientific method.
    Just because something was assumed "millenia before the creation of any modern scientific method" does not mean it must be true. And how is it "easily proven"? There doesn't even exist an image of our entire planet, to date none of the space agencies have managed to register an entire image of how the entire planet looks like, with all the technology and advances of science this image does not yet exist. We only have local images which are taken and passed to a computer program so they are manipulated, forged into a format we know today.

    I understand the search for truth very well and to be skeptic but how the old saying goes: "Do not be so open-minded that your brains fall out".
    Classic way to detract for people with prejudices. What you display is a knee-jerk reaction. You do not have any undisputable evidence that the earth is a sphere, nor have you verified this personally. You probably did not even research the topic in detail and examine the evidence on both sides. Just because it was taught to you in school does not mean it's a fact.

    You mean those images that look like paintings or CGIs? See what I said above about images of the earth. And no, there is no undisputable evidence that man has made it to what is called space, at least not in the "ISS" or on the Moon. But before you throw more ridiculizations without substantiation, examine the evidence:

    I wasn't always sure about the shape of the earth because the way I see it, we've no conclusive evidence either way, just a few experiments here and there which start from a premise which is already considered fact. So I've voted for the option "I am no longer entirely sure..."

    I've found the documentary to be a little bit more interesting than the usual flat earth videos because in this case it wasn't just talk but peoples made experiments to verify something. If I've understood correctly, the researches didn't start with the premise that the earth was flat or convex, but they were just doing experiments to verify the sphericity of the earth. And some of them don't appear to have political, religious or personal agendas, because they're simple cartographers or architects. The convexity of the earth was a conclusion made from the experiments and not a preconception. I think that's a good way to seek truths, without having a fixed perception beforehand.

    But ridiculing something just because it's not believed by the majority of peoples or by mainstream scientists is not a good argument in my view, because then we'd also have to believe race is a social construct, gender is fluid or other similar theories.
