Flat Earth Theory / Re: Tides and water levels on a flat earth
« on: October 16, 2020, 03:19:58 PM »
So I have had a quick look at the wiki and there is a video concerning tides and the problem they have with them being caused by the moon, with a couple of quite vague suggestions of what might be causing them instead, so there is already an attempt at answering point one, but the suggested answer has not been explored in any detail at all and I don't think it helps the flat earth proposal in any way on point 2.

As I say, looking forward to peoples' input.

Flat Earth Theory / Tides and water levels on a flat earth

The flat earth community frequently uses the apparent flatness of large bodies of water as evidence for the flat earth with terms such as "water always finds its level". I am wondering how tides work in this model. Specifically:
  • what mechanism is proposed for the existence of tides?
  • Accepting that some locations will be at high tides at the same time that others are at low tide, does this not imply that a not-completely-level slope or even curve must exist between any two such places?
Looking forward to hearing your explanations.
