Somehow, we can always afford ALL types of welfare (even for millions of illegal immigrants!), plus billions in foreign aid to nations that hate us...BUT...social security is a "problem".

This is how you can tell that Earth is round. The moon and sun is round. The sun is hollow but so is the moon. The reason we never went back to the moon because of the dark side of the moon. Their is things inhabiting on the dark side of the moon that we don't understand and they live underground as shelter. Their are beings living inside the moon.

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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 72992616

Ever heard the term "sidereal time"? - If not, look it up and you know where the 12 hours are.

 Quoting: Hydra


Ok. That's great and explains the numbers behind why we are sun facing at noon while on opposite sides of the sun.

Basically the concept is that the true rotation of the Earth takes 23 hours, 56 minutes, and 4.09 seconds rather than 24 hours. Makes sense and the math works.

But it raises further questions for me. According to this sidereal time theory we are gaining almost 4 minutes per day in comparison to the Earths rotation per day. Over a month that would equal a two hour difference between our 24 hour clock and the Earth's true rotation (235 seconds per day x 30 days= 117.5 minutes).

So take a city like New York. If we are really gaining nearly two hours of time over a month comparing the true rotation to the 24 hour clock you would think the time the sun rises would reflect that discrepancy. The difference between sunrise May 1st to June 1st in New York is a 24 minute difference.

Anyone who claims to know for sure is either full of shit or making assumptions.


Without going to space yourself (which I have some really sincere doubts humans have ever done, especially seeing as how NASA scientists have recently said that they are working on technology to finally be able to take humans beyond low earth orbit) or seeing conclusive, unhampered with video evidence from a trustworthy source.... you have to take a leap of faith somewhere.

My mind is not made up but I have seen serious flaws on both sides of the debate.
