I'm too bored now, but I might as well say in my abyss of yawning 
ennui that No, it doesn't validate the *Flat-Earther's* point, but it 
would go to validate the point of someone making mock of a 
Flat-Earther by carrying his argument to an even more absurd extreme. 
The only question is whether I understood BillK's intention or 
whether you have. See what I mean about being bored? Zzzzzz.
