Serious Question About Earth's Curvature

I am currently in debate with a group of people who just swear the Earth is flat. Yes there are many people that believe this lol. My question to you pilots being the foremost authority on such a subject is this. How many of you have witnessed an undeniable curvature in the Earth while flying, and at what altitude were you? I would really appreciate any input. I know its hard to take seriously but you will be helping a lot of people who are very confused lol.

Just book an RTW ticket and you've got your proof. But I think this post doesn't belong into this specific forum..

Apologies. Perhaps a moderator can move it to the appropriate place.

Agree! Personally I never witnessed curvature in the earth, sorry. I didnīt think today people are really that uneducated. But somewhere you find always some survivers from other times....

As this was cross posted in Travel Buzz, and seems to belong in OMNI as noted by obscure2k this thread will remain closed.
