What holds the atmosphere in?
« on: May 24, 2008, 08:39:58 PM »
Seriously, if the earth has all this free floating atmosphere, what holds it in? And don't say it is constantly falling to earth...

I guess it would have to be "gravity" which is a "force" that exists for no particular reason. That of course would be the common troll answer, with much less swearing and insult.

Haven't you all heard the simile "she curses like a flowergirl"?

I guess it would have to be "gravity" which is a "force" that exists for no particular reason.
Isn't the "force of gravity" supposed to be the result of the earth spinning really, really quickly? ???

If there is no gravitational pull in space, then why does the Earth orbit the sun in RE science?

Seriously, if the earth has all this free floating atmosphere, what holds it in? And don't say it is constantly falling to earth...
Gravity, which is not necessarily a force, seeing as scientists have postulated the existence of gravitons. What I don't understand is why gravity is so hard to believe. The FE theory states that we are held in place by a constantly accelerating earth and atmospheric pressure caused by this keeps us down. We all accept that the force of the atmosphere being caused by the acceleration would keep someone on the ground because it is a fundamental scientific fact. Gravity (whatever it actually 'is') is another basic scientific fact. You get to a stage where something behaves a way because it just does. It's how physics works and you just have to accept it. Just like compounds can be broken down into their constituent elements where you can't break them down anymore, so to must here be a basic principle that happens because that's how it works. The weak attraction between particles that, on a large scale, is called gravity is another scientific principle.
If there was a god, I would thank him for giving me the patience to endure the pitiful attempts of brain-dead morons who try to force us to question scientific fact that was proven in the middle-ages. Fortunately, LSD is not commonly available.

Uh, no, it does not state that.  In fact, that is stupid.

If the earth was accelerating up that fast we would all be crushed to the ground and the atmosphere would spill over the edge and into the void. What keeps it there?

Besides that does not invalidate my point about gravity.
