Why did the earth form in a flat model?  When you see footage of liquids in zero gravity, they form spherical blobs.  Why wouldn't molten rock form this same spherical shape?  What is the flat earth accelerating from, or what caused it to start flying at your given rate.  Im not claiming to know why (or why not) these things happen.

Think about it like this.  Take that spherical blob and add a force to one side of it.  As it accelerates, it will flatten out and form a disk.

is all matter in the universe being pushed by this force?  Did it start in a big bang kinda way?

what is this "force" everyone is talking about? it sounds like an idea, an idea that shouldn't be taken seriously

when rain falls it becomes more of a tear drop shape

I'm rather certain they are speaking of centrifugal force, caused by the earths rotation.

I would hope you take something as elementry as that seriously, but sadly for the FE'ers, the earths rotation is only powerful enough to create a constant and smooth parabolic effect, eqaul in all directions, thus creating our true RE.
