No shit, but that's linear speed, and it doesn't create centrifugal forces. As I explained, that 1037mph only factors to an revolution per minute speed of .000694, that rotational speed will only create a minuscule centrifugal force. The fact you can't understand the science doesn't mean it isn't fact.

And gravity has already been explained by Einstein, the amount an object warps space-time is based on its mass, and through this warping of space objects of mass will be attracted to each other. But again, the fact you can't understand the science doesn't mean it's not fact.
 Quoting: mport81

Wrong, wrong, wrong.

Einstein was a fool. There is no "space-time". "Space" can't be warped. Please wake up from your cult beliefs.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74721349


FFS, warped space and it's resulting effect on relativity is observed every single day, and factored into everyday things like your GPS navigation. It's been measured in countless experiments. It's you retarded flatearthers who have drunk the cult Kool-aid.
 Quoting: mport81


I'm going to try to measure it myself using the total eclipse in August, similar to the 1919 eclipse where Einstein's prediction was first tested and found to be correct.

Good lord.
But, from a plane high up over say Japan, how much vapor could be up in the sky to prevent one from seeing the Himalayas?
Or the plains between the Mississippi and Mt Ranier in Washington state? Not too much water between them.

Re: Just As A Reference Point.... Is The Earth Round or Flat?
The interesting thing about these poll results is the degree to which they depart from the general population.

I don't know a single person outside of GLP that thinks the earth is flat. I know a few that otherwise deny reality, but haven't drunk the Dubay Koolaid.

Polls show that about 1 in 4 Americans think the sun revolves around the earth, but that's simple ignorance. To claim a belief in a flat earth requires denying many aspects of reality.

Dr. Joe Pierre wrote the following in Psychology Today: " ...Flat Earthers often see themselves as approaching questions about reality like scientists do, from a philosophical perspective of skepticism. But while superficially related, scientific skepticism and denialism arenít the same thing [sic] at all. The former teaches that evidence is worthy of belief when an observation is repeated under properly controlled conditions, while the latter teaches that evidence, no matter how reproducible, can always be rejected out of hand as a matter of principle (for more on the distinction, check out Michael Shermer's Living in Denial: When a Sceptic Isn't a Sceptic and Steven Novella's Skepticism and Denial)."

Wanna cite your source?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 64393767


Not really, nor interested in throwing you down that rabbit hole today, maybe later; you can seriously do your own research on the subject and arrive at your own conclusions.

Get to know things like:
Centripetal + Centrifugal Forces
Gravity
Planet Rotation speed
Speed variation at different latitudes.
CME's
Aurora Borealis
Light's diffraction and bending quality

Seemingly unrelated, learn how the ISS stays in orbit.
How it cruises at a speed and distance from the planet's center that keeps it at a sweet balance point of push & pull.

Similar thing goes for any planet's crust.

Have a nice day.

Re: Just As A Reference Point.... Is The Earth Round or Flat?
This is what I find perplexing. We are taught the Earth rotates once per 24 hours and goes around the Sun once every 365 days.

Imagine it is noon on June 21st. The Earth is obviously facing the Sun in your respective timezone. Now fast forward to December 21st at noon. It is still obviously daytime but in half a year we are on the other side of the Sun. The side that was light at noon June 21st at noon should now be in the same position December 21st at noon, but the problem is that would be on the dark side of the Earth if you go 180 degrees around the sun.

If the Earth rotates 360 degrees once per 24 hours, what happens over the course of half a year to gain/lose approximately 12 hours making it light at the same time while being on the opposite side of the sun?

It's a hard concept to grasp at first, but it is something I have never heard a good answer for.

Some of you should go read the 1st page of the book of Genesis. How we came to be, is very clear.

And, as far as i know, there are only 2 theories as to our existence. Evolution vs Creation
