Flat earthers. Please explain the different phases of the moon. Which is caused by the earth being in between the sun and the moon. The dark curvature of the moon. Tell me please

So gravity is fake but natural teleportation is real? I thought Pac-Man was a game and all this time it was letting us know that the earth is flat and we can teleport from one side of the planet to the other to get away from ghost.

Here is my best argument people in North America Europe and Asia look North they all see the same Stars, people in South Africa Chilli and Australia look South, they all see the same stars

@NovaDestry Not only do people in the north see northern stars and people on the south see southern stars, but they each see them rotated commensurate with the difference in their longitude.

@Lewis Craig Englishis not my strong suit so I probably do not word it right, I was not implying that North and South see the same Stars, it was that everyone in the North Sea the same and everyone in the south see the same. If it was on a disc everyone in the South would be looking in different directions

Where does this 32 mile sun get it's energy from? Wouldn't it have burnt out several billion years ago?

@Kirk Leadbetter Yeah, but it's not 32 miles across.
Kirk Leadbetter
Kirk Leadbetter 15 hours ago
@Lewis Craig in the video the Mom states that the sun is only 32 miles across. If that were the case the sun would have zero nuclear fusion because there wouldn't be enough pressure and heat. Even if you did allow fusion, at 32 miles across you would run out of fuel pretty quickly even if you assumed it burned like a red dwarf was my thinking.
Lewis Craig

It gets its energy through nuclear fushion. And no, it wouldn't. Our sun is young in its lifespan, it still has several billion years to go.

Was that a serious question? The tilt of the earth does not change, well, not within the span of a human lifetime. What changes is the position of the earth in its orbit around the Sun. Also, if you are asking why you can't feel the rotation of the earth, well, it rotates at a velocity that is basically constant and you cannot feel a constant velocity. ALSO, you would never feel the rotation of the earth anyway because the vestibular senses in our inner can only detect 2 maybe 3 degrees of motion *per second.* The earth rotates *ONE DEGREE EVERY 4 MINUTES* which is many times slower than 2 or 3 degrees per second. It's as simple as that.

This goes on the basis that NASA is telling the truth. Therefore you can’t say anyone is wrong. It also goes on the basis that the math and science we have been told is 100% correct. Which it isn’t. There is an ice wall, and we aren’t able to go there legally.
David Mescher
1) There is no ice wall. 2) You can go to Antarctica, and see that there's no ice wall. 3) The math and science that demonstrate the Globe *is* correct, although flat Earthers do an excellent job of making bad assumptions, or forgetting certain variables that end with erroneous results. 4) Math and science do conclusively demonstrate that a flat Earth doesn't conform with reality, and you don't need any data from NASA, either.
Glens Maelstrom
Name ten prominent flat earthers on RUvid (and by prominent I mean thousands of subs) that even know about some supposed trip to Antarctica. You have mischaracterized the modern day flat earthers on this point and many others and that makes everything you say worthless. Do you fallacy much bro?

So stars appear in the same place as they have for thousands of years as we all shoot away from a Big Bang at 1.7 million miles an hour. Really?
Lewis Craig
Lewis Craig 15 hours ago
Also I find it cute that you just list 1.7 million miles! As if it's a big number, and if probably is to your brain, but that's only about 0.00000002 light years. Contrast that with a distance of tens/hundreds of billions of light years. Obviously we won't see big changes in the night sky.
Lewis Craig
Lewis Craig 15 hours ago
They are several billion light years away. We have only been observing them for (at most) a few tens of thousandsof thousands of years. Our species has barely been around for a blink in cosmic time.
David Mescher
No, they don't appear in the same place. They do precess, just not very quickly.
Jay Day ago
Think about where this phenomenon comes from? I don’t have all the answers but I would suggest when you really have an extreme and arguably justifiable distrust towards institutions you really start to question everything around you. These people think they have figured out some hidden truth the rest of us have not figured out yet. Now that is true, there are many hidden truths, but flat earth isn’t it. What’s scary is that flat earths are do dead-set on this idea they refuse to accept any evidence to the contrary, the cognitive dissidence runs deep

I love how people take the weakest flat earth proofs and ridicule them. Argue someone that can defend themselves with compelling arguments.
Lewis Craig
Lewis Craig 14 hours ago
@J H Except each of those tests have to be performed *completely separately* you can't produce a flat earth model that accounts for *all* natural phenomena at once, because your models contradict each other. Your models for sun/moon rotation contradict your models for the coriolis effect. You cannot produce a working flat earth model that fits both of these, because it's impossible. Your model is not consistent with reality.
David Mescher
@J H Performing Eratosthenes' test, but using 3 locations can only work on a Globe, it cannot work on a flat Earth. If the Earth is flat, please provide a calculated Earth-Sun distance. Should be pretty easy, since it would just be basic trig.
J H Day ago
@David Mescher and you base this on what? Facts that could have been fabricated? Every test that people use to explain a globe earth can be explained with flat earth model
David Mescher
There are no flat Earth "proofs" that have "compelling" arguments, they are ALL wrong.

Yeah but why cant we see the _rest_ of the horizon? And when the sun sets we see the sung going down and not moving forwards to another place?
happy muttonchop
happy muttonchop 23 hours ago
alona You are exactly right. We can even calculate the effects of perspective and say how close to the horizon it would get on the distances it would travel (not close at all) or how far away it would have to be to approach the horizon (something like 35,000 miles).

@happy muttonchop since flat earthers say that the sun revolves around the earth.. We wouldn't see the sun going down, instead we would see it moving away from us, when the round earth spins the sun sets and we see it going below the surface, thats what i meant
happy muttonchop
alona That's fine, but i don't understand what you're saying. What other surface?

@happy muttonchop sorry.. I just had trouble with describing it.. Also im not a flat earther

Ya know what, let's just go back to believing that the sun revolves around us. Who cares about centuries of scientific trial and error. Before the Cold War we understood the Earth was ROUND. Let them go to that imaginary wall, it's natural selection at this point.

My only question is, What reason does the government have to convince everyone of this? They have none. If you can't get the government to convince people to vote for them unanimously, then what makes anyone think that they could convince everyone of something so mundane unanimously?

@Dean Lingley Sr. Also, saying "1000 miles an hour! Is funny, and I find it cute you are impressed with numbers with four digits, but that isnt fast. Our planes at cruising altitude go more than half that speed, and sitting in a plane is just like sitting on the ground. You are using tangential velocity instead of rotational velocity on purpose to get a big number. The earth rotates once *per day* sit on a merry go round and rotate it one time over 24 hours. The reason the number seems bit is because the earth is huge, but it is not fast. Also, water can't stick to a ball? The reason you are saying this, besides because you are repeating word for word what you heard on flat earth RUvid videos, is because you don't understand gravity. The earth, again, is huge. That means it generates a big gravitational field, a ball on earth, is much, much, much smaller, meaning if generates a much smaller gravitational field. Trying to conduct such on an experiment while *standing* on the earth obviously would produce the results you seem to expect. And the reason it wouldn't is because *gravity exists on the spherical earth*. There is literally no justification you can give me for why objects fall toward the earth on a flat earth model.
Josh Thompson
The level of conspiracy that would have to be coordinated in order to cover up the earth being flat almost impossible. It’s only possible to believe in flat earth if you have a confirmation bias and choose what you do and don’t believe based on what fits your narrative.
Dean Lingley Sr.
@happy muttonchop think about the water. Water always finds it's level. The earth is about 70% water therefore the earth is level and flat. Water can't stay on a Ball that is spinning a 1000 miles an hour!

Knowing that the Earth is spherical doesn't automatically make you intelligent. Perhaps you should all jump down off your high horses, we're all of roughly similar intellect and we're all wasting our time watching RUvid videos.

Knowing that the Earth is spherical does indeed not automatically make one intelligent. However, falling for the flat Earth indicates that one is an idiot.
