The Earth is being accelerated "upwards' through space at 9.8m/s^2.


How did you come up with that number?  
And Any reason not to just type: 96.04 m/s or  345.6 km/h or  214.7459 Miles/hour?
fft who needs evidence when you can just say it's a conspiracy.

Because the gravity acceleration is 9.8m/s^2...

Those are velocities, not accelerations.

Because the force of gravity is equivalent to an acceleration of 9.8m/s/s. If it the Earth accelerated at less than that, we would feel lighter, and vice versa.

They will refuse to believe that. rofl will deny it, and yop will start flaming you about it.

Take a look at the other thread I just started. I bet you're too much idiot to simply understand it.

Oh no, this is far from the stupidest question of the week. Sure, the question reveals an utter lack of knowledge of very basic physics, but at least it was asked in a relatively polite manner. It was a legitimate question.

Also, legitimacy: not a reflection on degree of dumbess.

Yes, but I think asking an honest if ignorant question is much less dumb than asking a pointless one. The question reveals the poster's ignorance, not his stupidity.

Adding to original question:

Q: Maybe the government is conspiricising (probably bad spelling), and gravity isn't actually 9.8m/s^2.  How would we know?

Also, using the gravity idea, are we now assuming that space has mass?

Because it's basic kinematics that anyone can verify for themselves. Just drop a ball and measure it's rate of acceleration.

No. Where did you get that idea?

Oh, right.  That was obvious.  :lol:

That wasn't the right question.  The right one is "Why doesn't the air fall out of the Earth?"
A 150 ft wall would only hold 150 ft of air, because over time any fluctuation in the air would cause pressure of upward force to move the air, constantly refilling the voids the flucuations create, and this force would give the air momentum, allowing it to surpass these voids and go to the real void.  While this would explain wind, it doesn't explain why planes that fly over 150 ft in the air don't become weightless and just go in one direction forever?

Most of us agree the ice wall is much, much higher than 150 ft. It must be several dozen miles at least.

Agreed, dantheman...wow.   Just...wow.   That's why I refuse to argue any point that the FE'ers use to try to prove their theory.   There is not set of rules that they go by...it's just made up on the fly.

Point taken.   But you are trying to apply these laws to disprove the FACT that the earth is round.   Oh wait, I forgot.   Gravity and it's cause are a fact, but there is no gravity, it's just perpetual upward acceleration.   Sometimes you can see the curve of the earth, but this is just an optical illusion.   And, of course when all else fails, NASA proves this fact, but that's a government conspiracy.

Newton must be so proud

The fact that this FAQ has been put up and not removed by the administrators implies that you agree with it's content, otherwise it would have been removed.   If I go to the microsoft web site and read their FAQ's, I don't see

Q:  Why use Microsoft Windows?

A:  Don't!   It absolutely sucks!   Try Linux instead

Why don't I see that?    Because Microsoft only posts content that they approve of.   So if you don't agree with the FAQ, take it down or quit bitching when someone calls you on it

Sorry...internet time warp.   I thought I was posting on the Flat Earth Society forum and I seem to remember you trying to prove the Flat Earth theory, which is all about questioning that the earth is round.   You don't get to pull a Bill Clinton and say "I never had sex with that woman"   You banged the b!tch and you know it.
