What about the fish in the sea? Shouldn't they, and the ocean they swim in, constantly be dragged up across the continents in vast, life crushing, tsunamis?

So did we ever figure out whether that plane could take off from a treadmill running at the minimum airspeed necessary to generate adequate lift?

Remember when that physics meme was going around the internet a few years ago?

The answer was yes, since the wheels were independent from the prop which was generating the forward momentum

Thanks for bringing that up Canadiens, it prompted me to look up the answer. Reminds me of the Monty Hall problem, which I was happy to bore my friends with by explaining as well.

mind. blown.

I'm still waiting on an answer vis a vis the oceans and fishes therein, and why they aren't sloshing over my home this instant in a catastrophic permanent tsunami.

If you are in a car going 70mph down the highway, and it's a smooth car with great shocks (etc.), you could conceivably have your face buried in a book or an Ipad for hours and forget that you were actually moving 70 mph in a car. Everything is moving with you, so your perception is relative.

Anyhow, just to make this easy as pie...

Look at the stars in the night sky. They move.

How does that happen if the Earth is not rotating?
Right.

Why, the universe rotates around the earth, of course.

Maybe if you're a brain dead idiot, sure.

How exactly does "look! the sun's in a different place than it was a month ago" disprove scientific fact, neil c?
