I think all arguments for a flat earth are in a first place tie for dumbest.

One of my favorite arguments is that gravity doesn’t exist but instead it’s all due to density.

But the eclipse stuff is also fucking entertaining.

re: #1 Big Beautiful Door

I sometimes wonder if Flat Earther’s are serious and really believe there is this massive conspiracy to cover up the “true shape” of the Earth, or if they’re just trying to get a rise out of people. However, unfortunately many of them do appear to be serious to the point were it would be a bad idea for everyone to just ignore them.

I have a feeling that those people have an understanding of science that isn’t much better than the typical young Earth creationist, and probably also share the desperation of young Earth to make reality fit their laughable dogma.

But the eclipse stuff is also fucking entertaining.

They try to argue that “heavy” objects fall because they are more dense than air, while “light” objects rise because they are less dense — helium balloons, for instance. This was Aristotle’s argument from the 4th century BC. He said like attracts like, so a stone will naturally fall to rejoin other stony friends, while smoke rises to meet up with its airy-fairy friends in the sky.

Galileo disproved it in the 1600s, by realizing the medium through which an object falls (air or water) affects its motion. Drop a piece of wood over a pool of water, and the wood falls until it hits the water. If Aristotle’s idea was correct, the wood should still keep falling through the water.

The density argument also does not explain why a falling object gains speed as it falls. Galileo again worked this out 400 years ago, and Newton explained why a century later. But both those arguments involve Teh Math, which I suspect Flat Earthers are not too good at.

Fun physics experiment: Get a helium balloon and take it for a car ride. Tie it down somewhere, like on the passenger’s headrest, so that it is free to move sideways. Notice its behavior when you speed up, slow down and make a turn. For example, when you stop quickly, your body keeps moving froward, but the balloon will lean toward the back of the car.
