“Surveyors, engineers and architects are never required to factor the curvature of the Earth into their projects. Canals, railways, bridges and tunnels for example are always cut and laid horizontally, often over hundreds of miles without any allowance for curvature.”(1)
“Spherical trigonometry dictates the surface of all standing water must curve downward an easily measurable 8 inches per mile multiplied by the square of the distance. This means along a 6 mile channel of standing water, the Earth would dip 6 feet on either end from the central peak. Every time such experiments have been conducted, however, standing water has proven to be perfectly level.”
“The Suez Canal connecting the Mediterranean with the Red Sea is 100 miles long without any locks making the water an uninterrupted continuation of the two seas. When constructed, the Earth’s curvature was not taken into account, it was dug along a horizontal datum line 26 feet below sea-level, passing through several lakes from one sea to the other, with the datum line and water’s surface running perfectly parallel over the 100 miles.” (1)
If the Earth’s curvature* is taken into account then the water in the canal should form an arc that is 1666 feet above sea level at it’s midpoint (50 miles), when in actuality it is at sea level along it’s entire course.
*8 inches x (50 x 50) = 20,000 inches /12 inches = 1666 feet
How can this be explained?
