Buddha, your above all attitude is not appreciated.
I know, from my long experience on ATS, that people who don't bother to try and learn or even to apply a modicum of critical thinking, and feel comfortable in this self-inflicted misery, often are inflamed when somebody calls them out on that. You can easily do the research on tidal lock, and if you have enough stamina and grey matter (not guaranteed) drill down to some math that models that, and find various proofs of how gravity works and to what precision it was tested.
All I ask is that you attempt to prove where your conclusions come from, as this is what everyone asks of everyone here at ATS.
I made it relatively clear (YMMV) that my conclusions come from sources accessible to the public, i.e. physics papers, textbooks etc. I didn't mention I love the physics experiment as a field of endeavor. A lot of my experience and knowledge comes from measuring stuff and doing actual experiment, not from reading some New Age cr@p books, which explain how the Great Pyramids are nuclear reactors, or power stations, and how they act as "crystals" (bleh).
Your ideas of tidal locking are just because that is what someone has told you,
See the above. I laugh at laypeople who pretend they are not laypeople but have some superior knowledge. Until you have done every problem in Jackson, you have no business passing judgement on physics.
