If the earth was rotating at 25,000 mph the days would be one hour long.

In the early 1500s, when virtually everyone believed Earth was the center of the universe, Polish scientist Nicolaus Copernicus proposed that the planets instead revolved around the sun.

It is now almost 2020 and we still have people that think Nicolaus Copernicus was wrong ! [emoticon]

Methinks you're talking about California. Lived many years in southern CA, and you're right...it is strange space, but the weather is nice. [emoticon]

"flat earthers" can't explain why the earth appears as a globe when seen in photos, just like all other planets.

Flat earthers don't have to explain anything. They KNOW they are right.

I've never seen a 2-D photo that shows the Earth as a globe, it may be round but it takes 3-D to show a globe.

Astronauts circling the earth have seen enough evidence that the earth is spherical. Another proof is watching a large ship on the ocean sailing away from you. Eventually, it will appear to be sinking as it gets further, indicating a curvature in the distance. And no, it hasn't fallen off the edge of a flat earth. Besides, show me any planet (or moon) that is not spherical. No one can argue that there are other planets that are flat because they don't exist. Even the Bible mentions "the circle of the earth."(Isa 40:22) That's even more convincing for some people.

If you believe the moon landings are faked and there is a conspiracy, why would you believe the people, astronauts, that are in the employ of the conspiracy leaders.

Looking at planets only proves that they are round, not spherical. Witness the moon, you only see one side of it, that would indicate that it is flat and round. If it was spherical you'd see varied parts of the moon. If it's a sphere, why can't you see it rotate?

It's rotating a 1040 MPH at the equator, zero MPH at the poles and something in between everywhere else.
