Water proves earth is flat. Water always seeks its level; all oceans are flat and level; oceans are 70% of the earth’s surface; therefore, earth is flat. Globers don’t like this, so they try to change the properties of water. Let’s look at two counter-arguments globers use:
1) Water Droplets.
Globers like to post pictures of water droplets, thinking this proves water could curve in large quantities. Now, don’t get me wrong, I like pictures of water droplets as much as the next person. Especially with cute little bugs on them, like this:
But water droplets don’t prove earth is a spinning ball. The properties of water bring us to the conclusion that earth is flat and stationary.
Water in small quantities clings to itself, so that it forms a shape with the smallest surface area, i.e. a droplet. But let the droplet fall to the earth, and it sinks into the soil, or assimilates into a large body of water, no longer a droplet:
Several water droplets can fit on a penny, until they all splash out:
But in large quantities, water requires a CONTAINER:
Otherwise, it flows downhill until it can’t flow downhill anymore.
And that’s what we mean when we say water seeks its level. Water doesn’t curve in large quantities, no matter how much you post pictures of water droplets.
Globers also like to post pictures of a meniscus:
A meniscus can be convex or concave, depending on the liquid. But it occurs because of the molecules’ attraction to the CONTAINER. Again with the container.
That leads us to the next point globers make, when they despair of proving water curves:
2) Redefining level.
Globe defenders don’t like to live in a world where water is level. Because that means oceans are level, which means earth is flat. So, they try to redefine what level means.
“Level doesn’t mean flat! Level means curved!” they say. But the dictionary disagrees with them:
Globers want to construct a reality where instead of flat oceans we have curving oceans. The only problem is that there’s no evidence for this.
In conclusion, globers try to escape the reality of water seeking its level, and all oceans being flat and level, but they fail.
