Do you really think the moon is a sphere?

If you really want to see if the moon is a sphere, get a telescope, or even some good binoculars. You can see from the way that shadows cast in craters and by mountains, and by the way that those shadows change with time, that it is a sphere.

As for tidal locking. i did this gif to show that the moon rotates. The moon in the bottom right hand corner is the same one orbiting Earth:

Just put a basketball about 20 feet in the air and try to observe the same face of it when you walk a circle around it.


But we are not orbiting the moon, it's moving around the Earth. 59% of the same side is always toward the Earth due to the tidal lock.

Arent we slowly changing to the view that 'gravity' is more a function of electromagnetism ?
Recently Ive heard mainstream scientists say that we dont really understand 'gravity' and that some sort of electromagnetic force is more likely. They were also reviewing the 'ether' theory that we binned ages ago, but that left us looking for 'dark matter' that we cant find and is needed for other theories to make sense.

BTW: Didnt Eratoshenes show the earths shape by his holes in the ground experiment ?
I watched Carl Sagan on that and Im pretty sure he was no slouch in these things...

Idk its flat, but something strange is going on.... crrow777 now has a podcast. He doesnt have an explanation, just evidence of something very strange....

No, in particular since the two behave quite differently. While the idea that the four forces can somehow be united has been around for a while, no one has managed to come up with a way to demonstrate it.

The shape of the world was known. What Eratosthenes did was calculate its circumference by measuring the angle of sunlight at two locations. Simply. Elegantly.

Well as usual with flat earth posters, the op disappears as soon as they are shown how things actually work.

Where are you toolman?

Return and admit defeat to retain what's left of your dignity.

i can draw a moon on a piece of paper that looks 3D and sphere from a distance but it doesn't make it so

can the OP or any other " flat mooner " give a COHERENT explaination of the phases of the moon ?

the spheroid moon explaination nails this - and can be verified with one torch - one dark room and one basket ball

so - whats the " flat moon " explaination for its phases ?

Post your drawing here, I'd like to have a look.

if i shine a light on your drawing - will it replicate the phases of the moon ?

I think you're fairly safe in assuming that the pictures showing a spheroid-earth from ISS are actually showing what is really there.

I'm eagerly awaiting your 2d moon drawing that looks 3D and shows curvature when a light is cast on it.
