##### Everything is a Sphere (Sun, Moon, other planets)... except the Earth?
« on: February 08, 2018, 06:48:57 PM »
I'd like for someone to explain to me why the Earth is not a sphere but everything else is a sphere?

If looking out into space we saw that the Sun was flat, the Moon was flat, other observable planets are flat; I could potentially see an argument that the earth "might" be flat (i.e. not considering any of the facts I learned in grade-school physics).

But since everything in space appears to be a sphere, why do you rule out the possibility that the earth is a sphere?

Life is on Earth but not everything else, why? The Earth is not like everything else. Following from that logic, the Earth isn't spherical simply because everything else is.

That isn't a good argument. There is life on Earth because the Earth is in the right conditions for life to exist. So what conditions make the Earth a flat disk, unlike all the other planets?
I still believe its round don't worry.

I've seen this line of reasoning before and it is a complete non sequitur. Life on Earth doesn't make it special. It sits in an orbit that allows for life and contains the elements essential for life. We have discovered thousands of planets outside our solar system. Some of those reside in the so-called habitable zone. If we have discovered so many planets given our limited capabilities, the universe is likely home to a massive number of planets. There is no reason life hasn't developed elsewhere. Think of it this way - what about Earth makes it able to support life? Hydrogen, carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, and a source of energy. None of those are unique or special. They are ubiquitous throughout the observable universe.

It sits in an orbit that allows for life. Nothing more.

There actually is more, even from the RE perspective.

I think it’s a fair question, it does seem strange that our planet would be the only known recorded object in the universe that is not a sphere. I mean the changes of that statistically would be astronomical.

But, why would out planet have a completely separate set of rules to operate by? Some of the other planets have their own moons, but none have their own suns, yet they are lit by some master light source. You can all see that using telescopes with your own eyes. This light source would have to be enormous, and by default would light us.

Also, if we are shooting up constantly to generate what we call gravity or universal acceleration, what are we leaving behind? I mean everything would have to travel with us at the same rate, but you can see the stars and planets in the sky curve round using time lapse video or photography. Anyone can do this at home, I have (it’s cool!) the models don’t explain those images.

If we’re universally going up, there would be no star light streaking in the sky: http://photographyblogger.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Slow-Motions.jpg

It would be motionless, but instead we can record and see the movement of the Earth rotating on an axis.

True - edited post to be more accurate.
