  1. Time to rethink the Earth's motion?

    I suspect Newton would have agreed with me.
  2. Time to rethink the Earth's motion?

    As luck would have it someone already did. It is called Newtonian Physics.
  3. Time to rethink the Earth's motion?

    Okay please be fair. I was presented with two links on the first reply. I read both and responded. I was then presented with this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galilean_invariance which states that the laws of motion are the same in all inertial frames. Nothing to do with my argument. and then a list with no links: Sunrise and sunset? Coriolis force? Foucault's pendulum? The motion of the stars? The fact the Earth is an oblate spheroid? The Hafele-Keating experiment? Firstly, "The fact the Earth is an oblate spheroid" is not a fact I accept. The Hafele-Keating experiment was a test of relativity - nothing to do with my argument. Everything else on the list is in agreement with a non-rotational model.
  4. Time to rethink the Earth's motion?

    If you assert with no evidence then I will dismiss with no evidence.
  5. Time to rethink the Earth's motion?

    There is nothing more to be said. We agree on that point. I pointed out first there is no lateral force. My explanation is simple. It is your explanation that involves unnecessary complication. Occam's razor says I am right.

    Perhaps you might want to consider the example of the parachutist? How would no parachutist have noticed that they land 100s of miles off target depending on which way the aircraft is travelling?
  7. Time to rethink the Earth's motion?

    You are missing that there is no lateral force on the helicopter whatsoever. You are the one introducing unnecessary forces when Occam's razor suggests otherwise. How convenient. 1,675 kmh rotation and I can play golf on a perfect day with no breeze.
  8. Time to rethink the Earth's motion?

    I have addressed those points already. Explain the helicopter/satellite anomaly and then we can talk. Because apparently the earth rotating at 1,675 kmh. It is not a linear force so you be be subject to centrifugal force throwing you off the earth. My golf balls don't go further when I hit them east or west. That is evidence the earth is not rotating.
  9. Time to rethink the Earth's motion?

    I can't say I am convinced. I tend towards Occam's razor in this case. I have yet to see a convincing argument that the earth is in motion although I appreciate your feedback.
  10. Time to rethink the Earth's motion?

    That doesn't explain the inertia.
  11. Time to rethink the Earth's motion?

    The problem with that is that it is a rotational movement. It is not linear, therefore we would expect to see anything in earth's atmosphere being ejected into space by the wind.
  12. Time to rethink the Earth's motion?

    Yes, so it should be the same in both directions. If there is rotation at 1,675 kmh then the wind would be way beyond hurricane force.
  13. Time to rethink the Earth's motion?

    So why doesn't my golf shot go into space? If it has inertia in one direction surely it should keep travelling out of the atmosphere.
  14. Time to rethink the Earth's motion?

    That is my point. The balls go up and down. That suggests the earth is stationary.
  15. Time to rethink the Earth's motion?

    From the first article: In order to put the satellite into a specific orbit, they can't just shoot it straight up from the Earth's surface. They have to apply horizontal forces as well, in order to counter the Earth's rotation and get the satellite into the correct orbit. So why is different for helicopters? It seems helicopters can go straight up and down but not satellites . Why do these forces not apply to helicopters?
