Again If you post quotes and such post the links showing us where you have otten them.
You should know this already.
Astronomers say the magical magnetism of gravity is what keeps all the oceans of the world stuck to the ball-Earth. They claim that because the Earth is so massive, by virtue of this mass it creates a magic force able to hold people, oceans and atmosphere tightly clung to the underside of the spinning ball. Unfortunately, however, they cannot provide any practical example of this on a scale smaller than the planetary. A spinning wet tennis ball, for instance, has the exact opposite effect of the supposed ball-Earth! Any water poured over it simply falls off the sides, and giving it a spin results in water flying off 360 degrees like a dog shaking after a bath. Astronomers concede the wet tennis ball example displays the opposite effect of their supposed ball-Earth, but claim that at some unknown mass, the magic adhesive properties of gravity suddenly kick in allowing the spinning wet tennis ball-Earth to keep every drop of “gravitized” water stuck to the surface. When such an unproven theory goes against all experiments, experience and common sense, it is high time to drop the theory
During Captain James Clark Ross’s voyages around the Antarctic circumference, he often wrote in his journal perplexed at how they routinely found themselves out of accordance with their charts, stating that they found themselves an average of 12-16 miles outside their reckoning every day, later on further south as much as 29 miles.
Lieutenant Charles Wilkes commanded a United States Navy exploration expedition to the Antarctic from 1838 to 1842, and in his journals also mentioned being consistently east of his reckoning, sometimes over 20 miles in less than 18 hours.
BUT I do know and you can look it up anywhere you wish, that NO experiment or proof that the earth spins has ever been scientifically performed.
No scientific experiment that has been proven and I mean PROVEN by either the scientific or the layman community has ever proved that the earth is moving at all!!

I hear you, but then, why all earth's pic is perfect round shape? They went to space so many times, why do they have to generate computer images of the earth?

You don't believe that right? So if you fly from america to Canada you are going south? Or are the north/south poles flipped too?
And while on the subject you can dismiss it easily without being ignorant. People lose all credibility when they say they can't dismiss it cos I haven't see it with my own eyes. Not everything is a conspiracy.
Just think about day and night.
Second pic, you have link to original source?

I've read the comments, yet I haven't seen someone claim that the sperical wasn't observable. Another question. Why the pictures of earth (complete) don't have any stars in them?www.nasa.gov...
The fact that there are no visible stars in photos and videos from the moon landing has also fueled some conspiracy theorists' suspicions, though NASA scientists explain that "the camera was unable to capture the light emitted from the stars because the bright sunlight hitting the moon's surface washes out the light from the stars."
That same bright light is the reason many astronauts' photos from the International Space Station appear to show space as pitch black and void of stars, write experts at PhysLink.com:
