The Disappearance of Museum Pendulums Shows How Science Admits The Earth is Stationary
When I was a kid, large public places like Museums had these really large pendulums hanging from the architecture of the high ceilings. They would slowly swing back and forth, knocking over little wooden pegs in a circle. A plaque marvelously explained how the Pendulum "Showed the rotation of the Earth."

Now, those Pendulums are gone. They figured out that the supposed "rotation of the Earth" had nothing to do with the Pendulum movement. They could not deny that some Pendulums swung clockwise, some counterclockwise, unrelated to which "hemisphere of the Earth" they were in. Pop Science had shot itself in the head.

After looking carefully, they found that any circular regression of the Pendulum through an Arc was entirely from the impossible to calibrate magnetic push being used to keep it swinging, being slightly off center of the suspended cable.

Lol. I am still laughing.

How would that prove the Earth is stationary? Its like saying if my toilet doesn't swirl counterclockwise when flushed, that means the Earth is stationary?

Didn't you take physics? Holy fuck some people are dumb. Foucault's Pendulum is the experiment which supposedly proves the rotation of the earth.

you don't get it, it's one of their biggest "proofs" that earth rotates.

but op is right, they swing regardless of the earth's rotation, sometimes swi ging opposite of said rotation. unless helped with a secret engine that pushes it in the right direction.
