The Motionless Earth

Post by RickFE on Sun Apr 30, 2017 5:49 pm

There are many examples on earth, natural and man-made, showing how still the earth we live on is.

An inuksuk or inukshuk in English  is a human-made stone landmark or cairn used by the Inuit and other peoples of the Arctic region of North America. The inuksuk may have been used for navigation, as a point of reference, a marker for travel routes, fishing places, camps, hunting grounds among other uses. The word inuksuk means "that which acts in the capacity of a human." Or simply Rock People. A literal human representation given life and purpose in their tradition. These rock people are simple stones balanced on top of each other. Used as markers, they can return to these and find them intact year after year.



Many people have copied this in modern times, creating their own balancing stone sculptures.










Many of these are photographed over time by different people. Some have remained unchanged for years as people visit the tourist destinations.  Not to be outdone, earth has shown many examples of its own.











No matter how many formulas they come up with, the earth is motionless. The fact we can measure motion in a car, train, airplane is proof that motion should be detected. None of these rocks would be capable of being balanced on a train. No matter how smooth the ride is, how straight the path, the forward motion, would cause the balancing point to change. You can toss a ball up in the air and catch it in a train. Put the ball on the floor, and watch as it rolls to the back of the train. If there is a slight turn, the ball will go opposite side of the way you are turning. Same as in a car. You feel the momentum generated in corners and are pushed away from the center of rotation.

We are on a motionless earth. The evidence is all around us. Our bodies have senses to let us know if we are going uphill, downhill, if we are tilted sideways in any direction. Our bodies, are our scientific instruments and our tools.

An interesting aspect of the stationary Earth, is that which is uncovered before us, having been built upon layer after layer of striation.  If we look at the Grand Canyon, for example; one can see hundreds of miles of striation, in every conceivable direction, with no Curve to be found within that striation.
