There may be issues with the tides. There are places near the equator where there are negligible tides. Check this 4m video:

Thanks for elaborating Jack.

Can you give examples of high tides that dont correspond to the overhead position of the moon?

Or an example of a spring tide when the earth-moon and sun weren't in line?

Your story about Newton is interesting- I'll have to look into that a bit! Definitely would have been a lot easier for him nowadays when we have live video feeds of water levels in ports broadcast for free!

Another interesting aspect of Newtons life to look into though, thanks!

Jack, why do you say the moon has nothing to do with tides, despite the observational data that support that concept

Good question!

The moon being the cause of the tides is pure mythology.  It is a dogma of the faith of scientism.  You learn it as unquestionable truth at a shamefully tender age, and no dissent is allowed (as in most churches).

From that "given truth" established in childhood, correlation (extremely thin, I should add) is disingenuously/erroneously presented as causation as it often is in mythology.

If you evaluate the data critically you will find, as I have, that there is no causative correlation between the moon, sun, or any other light in the sky.  The tidal nodes locations, their frequencies, amplitudes, and timings are all not connected to the lights in the sky.  It was just a lie (or potentially, mistake) we were told as children, among MANY of them.

why would Newton have been anti-tide, what data was withheld to him, and by who?

Another great question!

In newtons time, much like today, the cause of the tides was unknown.  It was only after newton invoked the philosophically unsound (and anathema to all of physics) and stupid epicurean gravity for his mathematical fiction that the concept of the moon causing the tides was born.  Newton had the thought (of the moon causing tides) first, supposedly, and was a fantastically proud and disagreeable son of a bitch.  It was his theory, and the idea that someone else would get the credit for his discovery irked him on a grand scale.

He had the idea, and the new mathematical framework to validate it (so he believed, anyhow) - but what he lacked was precise data on the moon in order to confirm the connection he expected to be there if gravity were in fact real, and the moon was as massive as was believed at the time.

The royal lunar observatory refused to share the data with him.  It is my contention that had this data been shared, newton would have scrapped gravity entirely, and certainly the speculation that the moon was massive and caused the tides.

I like how these "milestone" events are always planned sufficiently close in the future to grab peoples attention, but long enough away for people to have forgotten all about it when the year in question arrives.

I would love to have a list of all the space related achievements that were planned for 2020 back in the early 2000s and 2010s. Surely theres a calendar record somewhere? These planned events get forgotten about all too quick.

Just wait and you'll see in 2022 there will be an all black crew mission to the moon or mars planned for 2028.

I am still willing to engage in a bet from someone who will to commit to a T R U M P victory. It doesn't even have to be cash money.

I’d bet you, just because I want to see the trash talk if Biden wins.

That's a good campaign idea for Biden.  "Vote Biden so we can bring back the You're Fired! meme."

Rudy Guliani has taken down crooked organizations before. If Guliani says that he has sufficient evidence of crimes implicating Biden and his family then there should be concern that he has sufficient evidence of those crimes.



Isn't it nice to see political enemies as the same as mafia crime families?  Gives you a real, fuzzy, communist USSR feel, doesn't it, Comrade?

There is absolutely room for a creator, even with all the scientific information available today.

Calling people stupid isnt very nice.

The moon doesnt cause the ocean to expand. In RE, it exerts a constant force which pulls more water towards it than around the peripheral parts of the earth. The earth's rotation causes different parts of the coastlines to enter into that zone of maximum pull force, where more water is located. The reason there is another high tide on the far side of the earth has to do with the lessened strength if gravity, which creates a greater inertial force...basically that water  on the far sideis doing a slightly better job trying to fly off our spinning ball...it just cant do it.

The question was how stupid? Not calling, you interpret the force as a reasonable assumption, not stupid at all.

Personally I believe that the correlation between the ~6.5 hour tidal ranges and the rotation of the earth combined with the orbital speed of the moon provide a very strong case for causation.

What would trigger the seafloor heaving and what provides the constant and predictable periodicity to the up and down? Tectonic processes? Something else?

Your brain constantly gets signals from your body which detect the amount of oxygen and carbon dioxide in your blood. Your brain will send signals to the muscles involved in breathing and adjust your breathing rate depending on how active you are.

So too does mother earth as designed by God. The oceans and it's life needs the churning of its waters to encourage and sustain life.

Satan wants us to believe there is no creator. Sorry some of us know otherwise. How stupid does one have to be to believe the moon makes the ocean expands on both sides of a spinning ball? The earth is stable and flat.....
