Earth is round and orbits the sun. FACTS.

Postby SpyderEdgeForever » Sat Mar 11, 2017 9:45 pm

I wish I did not even have to mention this but it deserves mention. I cannot believe this but it is true. There are actually people on today's world who believe the Earth is flat, and fixed in place, and there are people who believe in a round Earth but believe it is fixed and the sun orbits the Earth.

I am solidly convinced of a rounded Earth that orbits the sun. The evidence is abundant and available.

I am just shocked that there are people who actually believe that the Earth is flat like this, and there are people who believe the Earth is fixed and the sun rotates around the Earth. Galileo, Copernicus, and countless others, as well as modern measurements, reproduced experiments, prove time and time again that the earth is round and orbits the sun.

I was speaking with a man about this who is a geocentrist: He believes the Earth is fixed and does not move, and the sun moves around the Earth. I told him that: 1 The fact of seasonal changes prove a moving rotating Earth.

2 We know from detection that the core of the Earth is made of molten and solid iron and the spinning rotation of the Earth causes this iron to function like a giant electromagnet. It spins and produces the detected and measured magnetic field around the Earth which shields us and all living things from the intense microwave radiation of the sun and space, which, if we did not have the magnetic field, would cook us like a microwaved hot dog.

demoncase and Doc and others: What are your thoughts on this?

I am in agreement with you, SEF. The Heliocentric theory is also the only reasonable theory when predicting planetary motion. No other theory, especially Geocentric, are able to accurately predict where the planets will be and when.

Well, as anyone with a modicum of intelligence knows, we have been in outer space and even to the moon. We can actually SEE the earth moving around the Sun. We can observe via telescopes that even the Milky Way rotates and the Sun revolves in its arm around the galaxy center. Those who belong to the Flat Earth Society need to actually participate in something scientific. They are ranked with the dumb dumbs that think we never went to the moon. My father was on Von Braun's personal staff and was a rocket scientist. He still holds several patents related to the space industry (cannot profit by it due to government regs). I know beyond doubt we went to the moon. I have met the astronauts. I have met Von Braun. I have actually looked through powerful telescopes through which a person can observe first hand the movements of bodies in our solar system around the Sun. Sheesh!

I don't get how these people overlook the fact that you can fly a plane in a straight line and eventually end up where you started. How is that possible if the planet is flat? How do we not fall off the edge?

There is actually a world wide organization that is called The Flat Earth Society, believe it or not. Also, the world is full of conspiracy nuts, uneducated, willfully ignorant, who believe the moon landings were a hoax.

If the moon landing was a Hollywood hoax, the Soviets would have outed us in a heartbeat.

Instead, they congratulated us.

Hey, just because I wear a tin foil hat with a coat hanger on top doesn't mean I can't have an alternative reality. You all should try one on and maybe, just maybe you will flatten out your horizons :p

Never thought about adding a coat hanger.
But I added a face shield to prevent facial recognition.

I can't believe there's still people peddling the old elephant/turtle foundational view of the Earth...even a child in Kindergarten could tell you the elephants and turtles need solid ground to stand on...so it's painfully obvious only flying creatures could bear up the Earth without solid substrate beneath them...

so now the only crucial unresolved question is: Eagles or Pterodactyls?

How do aircraft negotiate that sharp turn when they're trying to fly under the edge to get Downunder, and if you drop your Spydie off the edge, where does it go? :confused: :eek:


Hint: as with most of the problems we're facing today, education is the only hope.

The Earth is not round. This is factually incorrect in every regard

It's an oblate spheroid (Pear shaped if you prefer) due to the gravitational effect of the Moon pulling the crust slightly toward it.

Had you going there, huh! :D

I think some of them go from other people's dryers over the edge and then into my sock drawer, because most of them are one of a kind and much too little to be mine. But now at least I know where all my coat hangers are going. People must be using them to hold up their tinfoil.

If we live on the Discworld- that'd be a flat world, stood on 4 elephants, stood on the back of a turtle swimming through space- then your socks are being preyed upon by the Eater Of Socks
