Tides?
« on: December 06, 2017, 01:34:36 AM »
Hey flat-earthers,

Can you explain the tides, you know, the things that are controlled by the moon gravitation pull... They work perfectly if gravity exists and the moon is huge, but how do they work on a flat earth module?

Thanks!

I know some think it's the earth slowly rocking back and forth (somehow we should be able to feel Earth's spin but not this. Explain to me how that works).

I also know others think that heavenly bodies DO exert some gravitational (or another type of) pull, but they usually don't think it's due to mass (But for some reason Earth shouldn't have any gravitational pull).

I'm a RE, btw. I'm just explaining what I commonly see.

I think the FE theory is that it has to do with the pressure changes in the atmosphere. But more that I cant really explain. We would need answers from some that has studied it deeper.

Interesting idea, if any FE believed that theory they might be able to make a rudimentary shape of the continents "map" by seeing which tides are simultaneous, or how far apart they are etc this could be plotted against the moon's position to show where each shore is in relation to the others. Just a thought.
if 3DGeek doesn't know the answer then it shouldn't 'awt to be known

But what shape would the map be and, would it still fit all the other aspects to match reality (angle we see the sun, distance between locations, etc)?

Hey flat-earthers, Can you explain the tides?

An explanation that appears in the often-cited Earth Not A Globe book: the landmasses of earth float on a giant worldwide ocean, bobbing up and down; what you imagine to be water rising and falling is in fact the continent you’re on sinking deeper into the sea and floating higher in it.

No, I’m not making that up, nor even exaggerating it.

I don't understand how these flat-earthers believe this stuff, I mean the round earth model is so simple in explaining the tides and gravity.

I would guess that unless it's a sphere it wouldn't match all other observations hence why it has not been made. Just an interesting tought that there might be more than one way to skin the proverbial cat........

The official explanation is that the moon is just a projection and that the tides are what happens when the Earth rocks back and forth.

I'd personally love to see a picture of the projector they use. I assume every mention of the moon in history/ancient times was faked as well?
As for the rocking back in forth, this is not possible because we would be able to see the stars slow down/speed up in the sky at night.

I am pretty sure you're not actually a flat-earther though, they don't believe the moon is a projection. As for the tides, there still is not really a good explanation they have.

I am not sure whose "official position" you are referring to. Maybe try starting with the wiki and FAQ.

Fine and dandy. What's YOUR position on the matter?
