What causes high/low tide in a FET
« on: February 18, 2017, 09:33:46 PM »
Since there is no gravitational pull from the moon or the sun, what causes the high and low ocean tides I see everyday?

The turtle carrying the flat earth is moving very slowly, making four steps a day, thus tilting the earth slightly each time and the water keeps its level while the land tilts, lol.

More than 24 hours without a FE answer, so I think I will satisfy your curiosity and tell you what a fairly definitive FE source believes: the continents float upon the sea, and they bob up and down in the water.  So what appears to land based observers to be water rising and falling is actually the land itself rising and falling.

Ok. You proven you are unworthy to unignored. You proven it was a bad idea to unignore you. and it was for me a disgusting experience...Now you are going to place where you deserved and accustomed.

Water has characteristics of set motion such as currents and flow.

The tides are part of this type of movement.

In other words you haven't the slightest idea. Thought as much.

Any clue as to why the timing of the tides is definitely connected to the phases of the moon?

Interestingly enough, the moons gravity has no effect whatsoever when it comes to extremely large lakes.

The tides, and currents, both air and water are caused by intense evaporation from the energy of the Sun.

http://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/gltides.html

"True tides—changes in water level caused by the gravitational forces of the sun and moon—do occur in a semi-diurnal (twice daily) pattern on the Great Lakes. Studies indicate that the Great Lakes spring tide, the largest tides caused by the combined forces of the sun and moon, is less than five centimeters in height. These minor variations are masked by the greater fluctuations in lake levels produced by wind and barometric pressure changes. Consequently, the Great Lakes are considered to be non-tidal."

Please explain how evaporation effects tides.

And how it seems to be a cyclical process in direct and predictable relation to the position and phase of the moon.
