Delphi, we have a problem.

It says it's going about 900 mph in the U.S. according to wikipedia. Remember you ain't in no train throwing a baseball back and forth. You're in atmosphere that is moving, and you're moving too. GAME, SET MATCH. Thanks for playing!
This post doesn't make sense... Not even sure what you're saying, but you are correct in that I am not in a train and I'm not throwing a baseball.

Yes! We are in an atmosphere that is moving with the Earth and we are moving with it and within it, but we all carry momentum from the rotation of the earth. You are so close to getting it.

Ok, so when you see speeds of the Earth in kph or mph, that's what we call angular velocity. This changes depending on your latitude. As you approach the poles, this amount decreases to about zero. This is why when describing rotation we use revolutions per unit of time. How long does it take for the earth to complete one revolution about its axis?

An entire day.

The big hand on a clock moves twice as fast. The earth spins incredibly slow with respect to our ability to notice. Also, speed is irrelevant. It is, it really is. I could have a train going 2000mph, and the same rules apply. In fact we have plenty of craft that travel faster than 900mph and nothing you are expecting is observed. I challenge you to provide data to prove me wrong (again, like the twelfth time). You can't win a game when you aren't even playing.

Well the reason no speed difference is not detected is because it's not moving. Think of the train metaphor. The train is moving at 90mph. You start walking towards the front of the train close to the engine. You will get there in not too long. Suppose you forgot something at the last train station. You walk towards the back of the train towards the caboose. You get there about the same time but you are from the last train station. That would be like the earth moving, if you were with it, travelling would easy, against it you face high winds. Airy's failure failed to prove the earth in motion but was a success in showing it was stationary.

Lol, wut? I get there at the same time but I'm from the last train station? What does that even mean? Ok...speak to me like I'm dumb, can you clarify that point.

Ah yes...Airy's failure. Do you know what the point of the experiment was? So, way back in the nineteenth century, one of the prevailing concepts of cosmology was that space was filled with a substance called aether. Basically, it's a theoretical fluid encompassing the Earth. George Biddel Airy's test ,and the subsequent Michelson-Morely experiments, was attempting to show it's existence by trying to find the movement of the Earth...through the aether. He was looking for a "drag" in the fluid, sort of like when you drag a fishing line through a pond and the ripples it makes as it drags some water. This is a very superficial explanation of the experiment for brevity and simplicity, but...

He failed.

The failure of these experiments suggested the earth was not moving....through an aether fluid. That's the part every flat earth YouTube channel or "independent researcher" omits and Im convinced it's out of malice to con you. If you don't believe me CCR, go look at the experiments, and see what they were testing for. Also, none of the people involved with these experiments thought the Earth was flat. Airy believed the Earth was a sphere and revolved around the Sun.

I'm also fully aware of Malcolm Bowden and his videos. Its a lot to go into as far as debunking him and explaining why he's incompetent, but it has already been done by better minds than me, and suffice to say...he's a stupid twatwaffle and smells of elderberries.

I think everyone knew what I was talking about with the train metaphor. Everyone just doesn't play ball in their backyard, people like to go places fast. If you went one way on a moving object it wouldn't be the same as going the other way.

Airy's failure, yes he probably did believe in a globe earth rotating because everyone else did at that time. So there was no aether, so what. I proved it wasn't the telescope that was moving but the light from the stars moving. Don't you science bro?
 
Problems galore: A rocket can go up in our atmosphere but once it gets too high the air thins out. No more propulsion.
Then you get into a vacuum and there is no air to push off of. That wouldn't work. The pressure would make the craft explode if it was
a vacuum. The craft's walls were super thin. The heat and cold difference would kill everyone inside. Not enough protection. Not near enough oxygen to support a trip that long. Power would be a problem. Batteries weren't as good as they are now. Solar panels? lol. And more and more and more. If you want to believe it because you saw it on tv. That's not proof. Much of what you saw was a simulation. Probably from a soundstage. The floating spacewalks are likely done in a pool under water. That's why many people see bubbles. There is more of a deception going on than just the space program but that's part of it.
Confidence and stupidity is a hell of a combination.
 
Is every planet flat?
The moon appears to be flat because everyone sees the same shape and features. You would think people at different areas would see different parts of a globe moon. They don't. Are the planets globes or are they flat. They are lights in the sky that no one has ever been to. The whole point of astronomy is a timekeeper for us. The sun measures the day length. Moon the month. The stars which aren't billions of miles away show time passing with their movement. Maybe the stars are beings or angels, who knows. If the sky was black like they show on the moon that would suck. Maybe the moon is a night light? If the earth sun and planets were really travelling through space like they say the stars wouldn't stay the same over thousands of years. More proof for you.

You've honestly displayed a pretty valiant effort and your patience is incredible. I've given up a long time ago. Social media has ruined the minds of those in the fat part of the distribution. Giving everyone an outlet to voice their opinion without the consequence of scrutiny and embarrassment is only good in theory as those with the lowest IQ's are always the most self-assured in their own convictions and opinions and thus have no problem shouting the loudest. Those with the ability to reason and deduce remain quietly unassured of themselves. Thus a massively disproportionate amount of bad opinions and misinformation get displayed and the large population of those who do not have the capability to properly reason or those on the fence fall into more extremist positions rather than being afforded the time and opportunity to digest a particular set of data/information as would occur organically prior to social media.

COVID also set us back massively as a lot of data and the communication of the data was absolutely botched by governments and scientists associated with those governments. Suddenly, those with healthy skepticism to COVID vaccine are now firmly planted in "anti-vax" territory and think every vaccine has a political agenda. As a passionate learner and scientist, it actually makes me incredibly sad.
