Flat Earth Investigations / Re: Rotation of Earth
« on: February 24, 2023, 06:55:56 PM »
I'm new here, but, this is where my head is:

If the Earth is spinning perpetually due to the void/vacuum offering no resistance to the spin and there is no force currently acting upon it to spin, how is it that introducing another axis of spin does NOT cause complete chaos?

Refraction from the dome allows light to be sucked up and filtered out, so the sun appears how it does.
Wonderful.  Can you kindly give me the mathematics for this?

When I travel to the other end of Lake Ontario and view my home city of Toronto from the city of St. Catharines, why does the CN Tower appear 2/3 as tall as it should?

If the Earth was flat the CN Tower should appear as-is. In the image below, you can see a Mirage Effect (eg. where the white roofed Rogers Center is smeared) but due to its gigantic height you can see how low the CN Tower dips below the horizon.

And you're another who didn't get my post.

You seem to think I'm offering a proof that the earth is flat.

Exactly - the earth cannot be round without gravity. Its the cart before the horse. Lets presume the earth is round then come up with a theory that stops us falling off it.
Actually, the earth was known to be round for around 1500 years or more before Newton came up with gravity.  Before that, people believed that things fell for much the same reasons that you explain: because that's what heavy things do.  Newton's version of gravity describes, with pretty good precision, how heavy things fall the way they do.

And you mention 'credible explanation'. That doesn't meet the 'beyond a reasonable doubt' test.
Science doesn't use the "beyond a reasonable doubt" standard.  It uses the "preponderance of evidence" standard, and that standard is much higher than you probably think.

A couple of questions if you don't mind. From a science perspective; if gravity did not exist and as a consequence let's say that everything floated 'on air' so to speak. Would it be fair to say that science would then want to know why things floated and why they did not fall to the ground (as opposed to why things do not float and do fall to the ground)? And if so why would we think there was something preventing us falling (as we seem to wonder why we don't float for example)?

Gravity Equation is plagiarizing Coulomb's Law

Gravity Constant G is equally Coulomb Constant after unit conversion

Flat Earth Theory / Re: In FE, why do the magnetic poles exist?

I think the earth is an Axial Disc Magnet...  Here is a picture...    I can't really speak about a Ring Magnet setup..

But in the left model, a compass wouldn't work, because both poles of the compass' magnets would be pulled towards the (geographic) north pole, thus resulting in a compass that points east-west (or vice versa) when you face north. I assume the right one is meant to be the round earth version.

Check the attachment, this is a real magnet

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Why I'm a Flat Earther... 37 Must-See Experiments

Just watched this very interesting video. However 'experiment' 22 opens up a big question. The experimentor is supposedly at or as near as possible, sea level. Yet when he googles his 'height' he and the object bridge 23 miles away are 860 feet above sea level. Have I missed something here?

No curvature with multiple tests.

The lies of a Globe are just that. ALL LIES

I scrubbed through the video. What's weird is that they don't show any of the results of any of the "tests". They just talk about them, but never actually reveal anything. Did you actually watch the video?
