How I Proved the Earth is Round (with my Bike and Two Sticks)

The scientific method is an incredible thing. I use it to test if the Earth is flat or round, and to measure its size, with just my bike and two sticks. Subscribing to my channel adds a drop of water to a cactus (named Sir Stabbington) in my house, and without that water, he will die. You can even go watch yourself water him in real time: kurtisbaute.com If you want to help support my mission to spread science around the globe, check out my patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/kurtisbaute This experiment would have been impossible without the help from Casey, Ryan, Jessica, and everyone at the Saskatchewan Science Centre. They went above and beyond with this project, and their science centre is fantastic. Check out this place! https://www.sasksciencecentre.com/ Here is the poll i reference at the start: https://today.yougov.com/topics/philosophy/articles-reports/2018/04/02/most-flat-earthers-consider-themselves-religious Also, I tested if the sun was far away or close to Earth. Its really far: https://youtu.be/39uV_lr5oD0 And I did an even easier experiment to test it again: https://twitter.com/kurtisbaute/status/1036255606414471168 Something I didn't get into in my video but really wanted to, is that my experiment was different than Eratosthenes' in another small but significant way. His was done on the summer solstice, and in Syene instead of using a stick and a shadow, he used a well. At solar noon the light went directly down to the bottom of the well. This is the same as if a stick cast no shadow. Since he knew that this happened every year on that day, he only had to measure one shadow, and he didn't have to line things up like I did. But, I have bikes, planes, and the internet, so I can't complain. Thanks for watching! #aroundearthbybike #flatearth #science

Comments from Youtube

Rokit Music : The fact you need to prove this is sad

VG : Everybody talking about pathetic "flat-earthers" while I'm thinking about the reaction of some random dude encountering wild trigonometry in a parking lot

SinnerD2010 : can it really be 1 in 10... that is extremely unsettling. Eratosthenes pace guy: "799,995m...799,996m...799,997m...799,998m...799,999m" "SON OF A..."

Triggernyar : Videos like this aren't here to convince flat-earthers. They're here to educate and sway the ones that are on the verge of becoming flat-earthers. They're here to educate the kids of flat-earthers, like how anti-vaxx kids are learning their parents are hurting them.

P Quigs : “ Mine is 3.9 cm shorter than his in Regina “ okay buddy are we still talking about the flat earth theory...? 6:51 thanks in the comments

r a l i ‘ i x a v i e r o : this is pointless cause flat earthers can't even comprehend basic math

Irfan Arif : I'm very thankful that you used metric system instead of imperial

Zinho9 : This experiment can very easily be debunked. Canada doesn't exist.

Ryan Bonner : Good video, but you'll be disappointed to know that flat earthers aren't interested in science.

virpil : I thought "the earth is flat" was a joke. Apparently not. I can´t believe people actually think the earth is flat. So flat-earthers think that all the videos from space are fake?

RᴀɪɴDᴇᴠᴏᴜʀ : I don't believe this experiment. Restart the sun and try again please.

007 NicklePickle : lies, i tested this in roblox and found out that it was flat. fake news

Joel Pyy : The sticks and the sun are paid actors

Mairis Bērziņš : 40000 km is around equator which is the widest part since earth is squashed from poles. Your result was actually more accurate.

SwiftySteve : Yo what if we take a picture from space and prove it?

Snark : Very good. But can you prove that the moon is real? #moontruthersunite

john squad : Raise yo hand if you came to the comments to looks for flat earthers

Aaron Wolfenbarger : NO!NO NO! It means the earth is a one dimensional construct in the shape of neil degrasse tyson's mustachio

zecuse : The problem is flat earthers don't believe in (effectively) parallel sun rays.

TheReal Monkey : Okay this video scared me. You said you were in stoughton, for a second I forgot you meant Canada stoughton. I live in one of the Stoughtons in America

Vantablack ! : It’s not flat or round it’s actually a fluid made from dark energy projected from the 13th dimension in hyperspace and we decode it as a solid with our third eye wave matrix. Come on people wake up.

Shro : Isn't it kinda sad, that there are still people, that think the earth is flat?
