If you want to disprove the spin, I would point out the speeds of the spin of the earth at different latitudes and then some videos of hot air balloons gently taking off and hovering nearby their launch zone

Or a hovering helicopter

Or any bird effortlessly floating and slowly traversing laterally

"At the equator, the circumference of the Earth is 40,070 kilometers, and the day is 24 hours long so the speed is 1670 kilometers/hour ( 1037 miles/hr). This decreases by the cosine of your latitude so that at a latitude of 45 degrees, cos(45) = .707 and the speed is .707 x 1670 = 1180 kilometers/hr. You can use this formula to find the speed of rotation at any latitude. "


1,670km/h is almost a half kilometre per second


^ Hot air balloon timelapse

Does it look like the ground is spinning a half kilometre per second beneath the hot air balloon?

Why don't airplanes, helicopters, hot air balloons or any birds ever have to account for the spin of the earth?

How do any of these things ever arrive at their destination with the earth spinning so fast below them?

Why do flights between Barcelona and Istanbul have the exact same flight duration going in either direction? Shouldn't the spin of the earth alter the flight durations?

If you don't know what inertia is, then I can't argue the rest of your stupid fuck wit logic. The problem with flat earthers is they have no education which makes it exceedingly easy to point out you are a half wit retard.
