Flat earthers argue that on a globe earth the days and nights would always be of equal length. This is insanity and a complete lack of understanding of the globe model. The globe model does a very good job of providing us with a logical explanation of the different lengths of the day and night and the changing of the seasons.
It may well be that the globe earthers model of the earth spinning like a top at various angles to produce the seasons is incorrect. But it is a logical description of a system that could produce different length days and the seasons we experience on earth. It does account for different lengths of day and night throughout the year and the changing of the seasons [through the change in the length of the day and by making the sun appear higher or lower in the sky]
This theory may be incorrect and it does seem unlikely that the earth would be a globe spinning on its axis tilted in this way as we do not see any of the other planets acting like this. But you have to admit it is an ingenious system and give credit to the creators of the globe earth model for dreaming it up.
Conclusion: This is not proof the earth is flat. It is an attempt to fault the globe earth model but it fails to do that also. It shows the writer does not understand the globe earth model.
Supporting Flat Earth Proofs
- 59) Quoting Gabrielle Henriet, “The theory of the rotation of the earth may once and for all be definitely disposed of as impracticable by pointing out the following inadvertence. It is said that the rotation takes twenty-four hours and that its speed is uniform, in which case, necessarily, days and nights should have an identical duration of twelve hours each all the year round. The sun should invariably rise in the morning and set in the evening at the same hours, with the result that it would be the equinox every day from the 1st of January to the 31st of December. One should stop and reflect on this before saying that the earth has a movement of rotation. How does the system of gravitation account for the seasonal variations in the lengths of days and nights if the earth rotates at a uniform speed in twenty-four hours!?”
- 126) The Sun’s annual journey from tropic to tropic, solstice to solstice, is what determines the length and character of days, nights and seasons. This is why equatorial regions experience almost year-round summer and heat while higher latitudes North and especially South experience more distinct seasons with harsh winters. The heliocentric model claims seasons change based on the ball-Earth’s alleged “axial tilt” and “elliptical orbit” around the Sun, yet their flawed current model places us closest to the Sun (91,400,000 miles) in January when its actually winter, and farthest from the Sun (94,500,000 miles) in July when its actually summer throughout most of the Earth.
