If the sun is always above the horizon, by an inch or a million miles, then it cannot be cut off at the bottom.
Then there's the issue of why depending on your altitude the sun sets at different times.
These days easy to do with a drone. I was flying one on Sunday, at 400' there's the sun, on the ground - dark.
In fact sunset is defined (for the purposes of Ramadan) differently for the top half of the burj khalifa - something perfectly explained by spherical geometry, and not in the slightest by your theories.
