Please comment on the Atlantean Conspiracy's page "200 Proofs Earth is Not a Spinning Ball".

A video on the same subject was posted here almost a year ago with little comment.

My comments so far appear here. I'm very interested in the mathematical aspects but would rather if the exploration was a joint effort.

i have a love hate relationship with flat earth. I love the curiosity and I agree whole heartily that history is a lie.

my issue with flat earth is they present a argument but have no explanation or reasoning for there view. like answering a question with a question.

one of the things flat earthers also preach is that if you didn't see it with your own eyes how do you know it happend? iv seen this argument numerous times and there is some warrant to it, take the moon landing. just because we seen it on tv and were told it happened doesn't mean it did, the only way to know would be to see it go down for your self... but see thats the kicker

when I was a child I watched with my very own eyes the Hale–Bopp comet travel thru the sky.

the flat earth theory has no answers for this.

I saw that "flat earther" as an insult became popular after the pandemic to discredit anyone questioning the narrative as in "And here comes the flat earther..."

I believe it is used as a tool to "poison the well": make people asking good questions seem crazy by associating them with people saying the most extreme nonsense you can think of. Forums where people are able to successfully question the narrative are poisoned by a flood of flat earthers etc. so to any new comers the people look crazy.

This seems to be the correct take on flat earth. The flat earth posters rarely engage in an honest back and forth discussion and when asked direct questions about glaring flaws in flat earth "theory" they usually just direct you to some horribly made youtube video that won't address your concerns either. The whole thing seems coordinated.

Imagine you’re riding a train going 1000mph. Why aren’t you turned into paste on the back wall?

Same reason water doesn’t fly off the earth. They’re part of the same “closed” (for our purposes) system.

I think you missed the analogy, this doesn’t have anything to do with the largely stationary air that you’re accelerating into (“winds” as you called it). The relavent points here are acceleration and “closed” systems. Imagine you’re in a fighter jet undergoing massive acceleration. You get pushed back into the seat with a force of multiple “G”s (aka a multiple of the force of earths gravity). Or you’re in a train which undergoes a much longer acceleration to top speed. You never notice it. Or a commercial jet. If they hit the gas or went into a nosedive, you would feel it, regardless of if there is a windscreen and walls to “break” the “wind”.

The point is, just like you+train or you+plane are closed systems, which undergo acceleration as if they were one body, you+earth (and water+earth for that matter) are a linked, closed system with regards to acceleration. Yes the earth is rotating (continuously accelerating slowly), and because you’re “stuck” to the “floor” of this vessel, you don’t feel it.
