What am I missing?

That it's largely a joke.

Ok, I'm relieved to hear you say that. THAT I can understand.

This book helps convince many.

How does the moon cause a high tide on opposite sides of the earth at the same time?

That book was written 130 years ago. How does it explain satellites, the Apollo program, the ISS, or any type of modern science.

And to answer your question, the centrifugal force caused by the gravitational relationship between the Earth and Moon cause the high tides on the other side of the Earth. A real quick Google search usually answers those kinds of questions.
blah, blah blah

Blah, blah, science, evidence, logic, blah...

As my username would suggest, I'm new to this whole FE thing, and I have to ask... What is it about this that has you all so convinced?

Is it purely religious?

The evidence of a spherical Earth is overwhelming and incontrovertible. Is the passing opinion that it is all a conspiracy? Is the consensus that there are no satellites? The GPS doesn't actually work? That the pictures as seen from space fabricated? That there is, actually no one on space?

The ice wall? Are you comfortable believing in it even though no one has documented its existence?

The tides? They just don't exist?

Is this simply a case of religion guiding opinion? Or is this an evidence-based hypothesis that can, and has been tested?
