Flat Earth Community / Thunderf00t's Mars video

What do people think about it? Looks real to me and I don't get the impression he's lying.

Flat Earth Community / Why doesn't the atmosphere drift off into space?

I asked the same question on YT and received this reply:

Gas particles move at 0.4km per second. To expand into space, they would need to travel at 11km per second. It's very simple to understand... even for unqualified commoners.

I've no idea how to answer it. I mean it sounds like BS but what do I know. Perhaps someone can tell me if it's factual or not.

Flat Earth Theory / This makes sense - doesn't it?

The following is a comment I received on youtube from someone after I asked for an explanation how it is that the oceans curve around the Earth if the Earth is indeed a globe. This explanation appears to make sense but I'm wondering if there aren't problems with it. Perhaps someone can help me with it.

Yes there is a reason why water does not shake itself off the earth.  It's called gravity.   Every atom in existence exerts a tiny force called gravity.  It is incredibly small as an atom is incredibly small.   However,  gravity is accumulative.    This is the single most important thing that you should remember.  As atoms pull together to eventually form objects, their gravity joins together to become a single force that this objects exerts.  The bigger the accumulation of atoms and their individual forces of gravity, the more gravity you have.  It's like one person pushing a car. He may not be able to do it but 5 people, all using the same force together, will start the car moving.  The strength of each individual atom's gravity, working together, increase the strength of the object that the atom becomes. 

The earth is one big object, made up of uncountable atoms.  Each atom adds it's tiny strength of gravity to the every other atom making up the earth, until that gravity is so strong that it will attract individual objects to it.  Moreover, you, Gordon Bennett also exert the force of gravity.  It's so small that it isn't noticeable but it's there.  That's why everything in close approximation to the earth falls down toward it, towards the very centre of that gravity, the centre of the earth.

Water is a liquid.  Water is also made of H2O molecules. Each molecule  is made up of 2 atoms of hydrogen and 1 atom of oxygen.  Since water is a fluid, each molecule of water will flow, almost independent of each other.  Also, because each molecule is made up of atoms, each molecule has a gravitational force.  That causes it to be attracted to the earth itself.  Each molecule of water will flow until it has reached as close to the centre of earth's gravity as it can.  A puddle of water may seem like a single object of water but in reality it is a collection of molecules of water with the ability to flow like a liquid. 

Since, each molecule of water must get as close to the centre of the earth as possible, the centre of gravity.  It's reacting to the force of gravity.  Each molecule will flow, jostling about until it can't get any closer to that centre of gravity.  So, if the earth is round,  the centre of gravity, the very centre of the earth will cause that water of the ocean to flow until the furthest distance of each molecule of water is equidistant to the centre of the earth or closer.  Every molecule of water in the ocean must be within this circle of of gravity pulling the water to it.  It has to because water is a liquid.  That's why the very top of the ocean curves around the earth.  Their molecules won't stack on top of each other like the molecules in your body.  Water molecules flow.  Your body's molecules do not.  The water molecules will flow until it cannot get any closer to the centre of gravity

The atmosphere is the same.  Air behaves like a fluid and each individual molecule of air will flow until it can't get any closer to the earth, forming a curved atmosphere around the earth.

This is rather simplistic but basic.  I'm not sure that I can explain it any better than that.
