Not only can we "define" gravity (the attraction due to gravitation that the Earth or another astronomical object exerts on an object on or near its
surface), we can also define gravitation (the mutual force of attraction between all particles or bodies that have mass) AND we can even go into more
detail about it.
It is dependant upon the mass of two objects and the distance between them in such a way that we even have a gravitational constant, a number that is
the same for ALL objects regardless of where they are or how big they are and every single particle of mass in our entire universe from an atom to a
planet to a star has the exact SAME gravitational constant associated with it that determines the EXACT force exerted due to gravity. Not just the
Earth, not just the moon, not just the sun, but EVERYTHING and everything has the exact same constant. We have tested terrestrial objects, we have
measured force related to the moon, we have calculated the orbits of planets due to this constant and have been correct each and every time as shown
by the planets showing up in orbit exactly where they were supposed to show up as proof of it being corrrect.
We have tested small particles with them behaving exactly as they should due to the calculations using that constant that is the same for every single
particle of mass in the universe and that has served as proof.
So, not only can we DEFINE gravity, we can TEST gravity and we can PROVE gravity. Then, we can use gravity to show the earth is, indeed, a spheroid,
we can test it and we can prove it. The only challenge is to help the people reading that proof to be intelligent enough to comprehend what is going
on. Hence, we have the flat earth theories and the people who argue until they're blue in the face based on zero proof, zero facts, zero support and
zero intelligence. Since they are unwilling or unable to do the background work to develop understanding, they refuse to listen to those who have done
so. It doesn't make the truth wrong, it makes the people who refuse to go to the trouble of comprehending the truth wrong.
***no longer to the poster being responded to but to the entire group of those who are preaching the flat earth theory****
The earth is a spheroid, you may not like it, but it has been proven over and over again for centuries now. The inability of a flat-earth theorist to
comprehend the mathematics involved does not make it wrong, it makes the theorist who is incapable of comprehending it stupid.
Ignorance is forgivable, it means you DON'T know something, stupidity isn't forgivable, it means you CAN'T know something because you aren't
capable. It doesn't mean you should be mistreated or killed or anything of that nature and you should be taken care of since you aren't capable of
taking care of yourself, but you are not permitted to dictate anything or tell other people who DO know how things work what you think and try to get
them to believe you especially after you have been explained to over and over again. Nobody on this site is "stupid", you are capable of working a
computer, you are capable of reading and writing, you are capable of communication, so you aren't "stupid" and you CAN learn if you put in the time
and effort so get off your lazy backside and put your brain to work. Research, investigate, learn, then you can understand instead of talking out of
Deny the Ignorance and put in the effort to learn.
