If I could levitate one inch above the Earth would the Earth spin beneath me?

I imagine it being much ike a child in the backseat of a car playing with a ball, throwing it up, catching it, it moves at the same speed as the car. but then he throws it out the window, what happens?

If you ever had the chance to observe the stars and planets with a scope, I think you would be impressed as to how fast the Earth actually rotates.

Isnt jumping a part of levitation? This question really shows the complexity of our universe. What trips me out, is the fact that we have all this scientific facts, which points to a Creator, yet we still deny them? How can people believe there is no higher entity? Think about it.....Earth is a GIANT ball of dirt and water, suspended in mid air.

Here's a head scratcher....if the US is sitting north...on top of this giant ball, and China is positioned south...are the Chinese people living upside down?

Oh, and another theory i've heard is that the Earth is actually square...but it's spin gives the illusion of it being a sphere shaped object.

You think a hovering helicopter is capable of moving the same speed the earth rotates? That really should answer the question here....

Okay, I will try to make it simple enough for everyone.
Levitation is not the same as rocketing out into space. Nor is it like jumping. You probably will never levitate, nor will you ever really meditate. That is why the Earth will ultimately be turned over to something more worthy than humans.
Oh, and the Earth doesn't spin either. What, the Earth is a top?
All of the crap you learned, is, crap. Face it now, and there is hope.
MACALLAN Scotch is great, but it won't make you levitate. It WILL shoot you out into space. You will think you are SO smart, and good looking too.
Simple enough?

There are no 'scientific facts' that point to a creator.

If an alien from a culture without 'god myths' came to earth and reviewed all science, it would simply conclude that we know a great deal, but there is much in nature still to be explained. The alien wouldn't suddenly fall to it's knees and yell 'praise jesus, I'm saved', because it wasn't raised with 'god myths'.

People who were at one point indoctrinated with 'god myths' and retain a belief in those myths, will always fill in the missing understanding with 'god myths'. It's not because they are silly, dumb or uneducated, it's just that their indoctrination trumps their rational thinking.

How can you believe there is? If you hadn't been indoctrinated and then lived in a culture that reinforces that indoctrination, you wouldn't either.

Which can all be explained by science. No mystery there.

try jumping from the highest building of that dump town of yours and see if you hit the ground right there or a couple of blocks away

Please don't have children....

Its a short and simple question by a short and simple and fat guy.

But could I travel free by simply being above the ground by one inch?


Since you were sharing the inertia of the earths centrifugal force to begin with I think it would follow that you would continue to stay above the same spot for quite some time. Unless the breeze blows you.

If the Earth doesn't spin, why is there centrifugal force?
