Yes I agree that the sun rising and setting does not mean that the earth is a globe, in fact it isn't and these questions should be put to all our modern scientist, as nearly none of their conclusions about the shape of the earth corroborate each other. Such as Inverse-Square Law regarding the light from the sun and the light from the sun reaching outer planets and bouncing back to earth which allow us to see the stars shining back which according to the afore mentioned law is impossible, also the law of gravity that Nicola Tesla said is a load of rubbish to explain why the water around the globe doesn't fall off the earth even though the earth is spinning at 1000 miles per hour, so gravity is strong enough to hold millions of tons of water down but things as light as air gravity cannot hold down. Also the ability to see objects/ buildings 10 miles away is impossible according to the mathematics applied to the curvature of the earth as these should be 341 feet below curvature.
