How does FE explain Foucault pendulums?
Please don't tell me the aetheric wind.

You can search, but all there is is a bunch of stuff about forcefields and Mach's "principle" which either ignore the problem or claim that the rotation of the heavens is the cause of any apparent rotation of the earth. Throw in some misunderstanding of coriolis, maths, vectors, mechanics, observation and common sense and here we are.

I suppose the OP was hoping for a new take on it.

The real FEer will say that Foucault pendulums don't exist and are all fake. If you point him to place X where the pendulum exists and works and anyone can see it, he will tell you that you are indoctrinated/brainwashed sheep with closed mind.

Searching "Foucault" with this forum's search function turns up 14 pages. Did you sift through all the 14 pages before you realized none of it was useful?  ::)

1. That's a lot of pages, and if we take the first few as a representative sample, then it's a safe assumption that it's all useless - yes.
2. There are as many explanations for things like this are there are FE enthusiasts, so we're unlikely to get the same one this time anyway.

1. So, sifting through some balls - they all may appear red on the surface, but as you dig you find all sorts of fanciful colors that aren't red. That's not how science works. You'd never know anything other than red balls if you don't dig to below them.

2. You can pick one you like and go with it - or you can think for yourself. (P.S. I like how my phrase is catching on.)

Yeah. This forum isn't exactly a treasure trove of knowledge that I fancy trawling through just to find one old dismissal of elementary evidence that I have no doubt people would now distance themselves from in any case because it's "that guy"s nonsense idea, not theirs. Although there are probably some odd coloured balls if I were to dig deep enough.

If only there were an FAQ that actually answered these questions.

What phrase is catching on?

It works the same as it does now. Because you have yet to prove your on a spherical earth.

You're aware that what we're discussing is the fact that pendulum arcs rotate each day? The way they would do on a rotating earth.

The way they wouldn't do on a stationary earth. There's no need to "prove we're on a spherical" (or rotating) earth first, we're discussing an observation that's easily explained and predicted by the earth rotating. Does FET predict the behaviour of Foucault's pendulum? Now that it's been observed, can it explain it?

No.  The FES standard reply seems to be that every Foucault pendulum is a hoax that uses motors/magnets/whatever to create the effect.

Basically, they got nowt.

What I don't get is how you can make a thread about Foucault pendulums without possessing one or performing an experiment to prove how they function.

RE is notorious for posing a question as if the little details in the question were fact.

"I read this in a textbook, it doesn't jive with FE. I know that textbooks are always right, so therefore FE is false" Do you see the jump you've made here?

Until you can ask a serious question with experiments and evidence to back up what you're asking then you will not get a serious answer from any of us.

Lots of proof we are on a spherical earth.  Please list the fe proof, eg maps, distances etc.

A long time ago this question was brought up to me and I actually made a trip to observe a Foucault pendulum. I'm not going to tell you which one I visited (to protect my identity), but when I went to the facility I was greeted by suspicious looking men in suits and was told to leave. When I tried to push the issue they practically threatened my life. I had no choice but to leave. I never saw the pendulum.

Have you ever tried to see one for yourself? I wouldn't be surprised if the same thing that happened to me happened to you.

Interesting. I actually have seen the one in the Buffalo Museum of Science.
Also, it seems that this Foucault pendulum is not guarded by men in suits.

Did you try to visit one in a private home? Or in a government building when it was closed?

Your implication seems to be that nobody actually gets to see one and that all the photos of crowds of people around public ones are staged or doctored, usual story.

An illustrative example: I have never seen the sky, any time I try to go outside or near to a window, I'm stopped by sinister robots with FET livery on their weapons.
