Flat Earth Theory / High tide(s)
« on: September 30, 2017, 09:42:55 PM »
Apologies in advance for asking a question that has already been posed, but from a search in the upper fora I couldn't find a detailed answer. Threads kinda went all over the place.

What is the FE model for how tides work?

Today in my area the high tide was shortly before 10:00 AM, and the second high was shortly past 9:00 PM. The second was the less intense of the two. I can give other details if needed.

The wiki has this to say:
Celestial Gravitation is a part of some Flat Earth models which involve an attraction by all objects of mass on earth to the heavenly bodies. This is not the same as Gravity, since Celestial Gravitation does not imply an attraction between objects of mass on Earth. Celestial Gravitation accounts for tides and other gravimetric anomalies across the Earth's plane.
Which beside being a statement rife with problems of various nature has zero explanatory power.

I would love for some FEr to expand a bit on the concept, maybe explain what is causing the timing I gave, and I'm preemptively asking 3Dgeek et al to please NOT chime in to explain how tides work in a RE model (I don't know in detail and don't care), or how they think the FES thinks they work. This is a honest question which I'd like to see answered and not an invitation for a debate / derailing / general crapshooting

Thanks, cheers

New here, but I've been lurking for a while; I hope this is the right place to pose a question.
I've read the article about gravity on the wiki, and I've read numerous posts here, in which the subject came up.
As far as I understand, in the FE hypothesis, the earth itself is undergoing some process of acceleration, which causes the effect that we consider to be the force of gravity on the surface. Furthermore, as an explanation for the tides and some local variation, it is stated that the celestial bodies exert a slight gravitational pull (which is somehow different from gravity).
Now, the questions would be A LOT, but I'd rather first of all ask only one, given the tendency of these threads to go places :D

The first thing that came to my mind reading the stuff, was a high school memory of the cavendish experiment (
This experiment, done first in the late 1700, and then repeated, measures the gravitational constant G. In other words proves in a lab that bodies with a mass exert a gravitational pull, and quantifies it.

Do flat earthers agree with the result of this experiment? How do they explain it?

Thanks in advance, have a great sunday!
