You apparently need to learn about physics : acceleration IS DUE to gravity. No gravity = no acceleration. There's no other possible answers. There can be speed without acceleration if the object had an initial speed, but there can't be acceleration without gravity in space.

Wait a minute, it seems as though you're implying here that the acceleration produced by a rocket traveling through space producess the same effect as gravity (it does). Which would still mean that gravity=acceleration.

Well... I'm trying to tell you why we can't separate gravity from acceleration.

We cannot separate the two because they are the same thing.

No, they aren't the same thing.

Gravity : attraction to the center of a massive object (like the Earth).

Acceleration : the rate at which the object attracted will go towards the center of the massive object.

Attraction is still acceleration. :roll:

I hate discussing science with retards.

Go study a little bit, do what I've done in science and maybe you'll understand something, monkey brain.

Attraction creates acceleration. You can create shit. Does this mean that you're shit ? Well, maybe... bad example.

Attraction isn't acceleration. Acceleration comes from attraction.

Ditto.

There is no possible way to tell if objects are accelerating towards Earth, or the Earth is accelerating toward the objects. Retard.

Hahaha it's funny how you change your position when you're not true. Hahaha.

When you're a retard that believes that telescopes are being traficated by the government, it's impossible, indeed. But when you're rational, intelligent and you believe that saying that there's a conspiracy is not satisfying, you'll come up with the idea that the Moon attracts a LOT of meteorits or rocks to it, which explains all of its crateria (I don't know what it is in English... well holes).

Intelligence has nothing to do with knowledge. You can live under a rock for your whole life and still have an IQ of 500 when you come out, it doesn't mean you automatically knows science. Well.. Sorry for breaking the subject. Just know the difference between intelligence and knowledge. -_-

The moon is not the Earth. You make the mistake of assuming that the Earth follows the same rules as the moon.

You also make the mistake of assuming that everyone here arguing for the flat Earth actually believes that the Earth is flat. Retard.

Well, I assume this because I'm not expecting much more from a southern retard.

So, explain this (on Earth, in USA) : http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Meteor.jpg

It works the same way that it does on the Moon. Retard.

No, it means intelligence never had anything to do with it in the first place. He simply didn't have the knowledge, whether he is a retard or a genious.

The Earth is accelerating upwards, while a meteor is standing still, or moving downwards.

There's no upwards in the Universe.

I won't say retard. I'll say : maybe-intelligent-guy-that-does-not-have-the-knowledge-in-order-to-argue-with-me.
