Night and Day Should Flip Every Six Months if We Were Orbiting Around the Sun

Night and Day Flip

Also, take a good look at the illustration: If night-time and day-time do a complete 180-degree flip every six months, shouldn’t we be seeing a different set of stars in our “night sky” every six months since our position on the supposed “ball earth” would be facing a completely different, opposite direction? Actually, the set of stars would change gradually every day, but the six-month difference would be drastic.

    • Incorrect. The earth completes a full revolution every 23 hours 56 minutes and some seconds. The reason that after 6 months it’s not the middle of the night at noon is because we compensate for this by determining a true day to be 24 hours evenly, allowing our “noon position” to be facing the sun every day equally. Leap years are another method of compensating for this. If you had done even 5 minutes of research or just paid attention in 8th grade science class you would know this already.

      • Did this guy “pay attention in his 8th grade science class”?… “The Pythagorean teaching (of heliocentrism) was founded upon hypothesis and it is not necessary that the hypothesis should be true, or even probable. The hypothesis of the movement of the earth is only one which is useful to explain certain phenomena, but it should not be considered as an absolute truth.”

      • And this guy probably never even went to school, right?… “It may be boldly asked where can the man be found, possessing the extraordinary gifts of Newton, who could suffer himself to be deluded by such a hocus-pocus, if he had not in the first instance willfully deceived himself? Only those who know the strength of self-deception, and the extent to which it sometimes trenches on dishonesty, are in a condition to explain the conduct of Newton and of Newton’s school. To support his unnatural theory Newton heaps fiction upon fiction, seeking to dazzle where he cannot convince. In whatever way or manner may have occurred this business, I must still say that I curse this modern theory of Cosmogony, and hope that perchance there may appear, in due time, some young scientist of genius, who will pick up courage enough to upset this universally disseminated delirium of lunatics.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ~ German Poet and Philosopher (1749-1832)

  3. You’re wrong. This is simple to disprove. The earth has two velocities, one is rotational along its axis, two is around the axis of the sun. Every 24 hours, the earth makes a full rotation, keeping 12pm constant throughout the year with orientation to the sun. 6 months out, the orientation would still be the same. Orientation is relative. However, as the year goes by, the earth does change angles, because of the tilt, with the sun. This results in regions of the earth having differences in sunlight hours and some regions having extended periods or light and dark. This difference in angle also explains the seasons as the number of direct rays regions experience from the sun is altered over the course of a year. You are right that the orientation does get off, but this takes very long periods of time to occur and are the reason that we have to add day every four years so that this cycle does not get off put. Also, this clearly explains seasons, something that flat earth cannot do. What is the explanation for this? I’m interested to learn and hear your opinion.

    Best.

    • Thanks for your comment. I’m not trying to be snarky, but I don’t have time to dive deeply into this. I do not agree with your analysis of the flipping of 12:00 Noon and 12:00 Midnight every six months. And the flat earth model perfectly explains the seasons as the Sun moves on its circular path back and forth from the Tropic of Cancer to the Tropic of Capricorn. It extremely beautiful actually.

        It misses rather badly in several aspects, though, at least one of which should be obvious. How far from the supposed plane of the “flat Earth” do you believe the Sun to be? We can measure the distance between any two points on the Earth with very high precision, so measuring the distance to the Sun through simple trigonometry is extremely easy – especially if it is in realty fairly close to the Earth. So – what is that distance, and can you show this to be so through such measurements?

The most respected so-called scientists in history have said that the sun is 1,000,000 miles away, then it was changed to 3,000,000, then 12,000,000, then 30,000,000, then 90,000,000, then 93,000,000, then 110,000,000, then back to 93,000,000. Wow… how precise.

  4. So what you’ve really shown here is that you don’t understand the difference between a solar day (24 hours long, and which is what our clocks measure) and a sidereal day (which is almost 4 minutes shorter; 3 min. 56 seconds, to be more precise). Notice that in half a year (call is 182.6 days) that difference adds up to

    182.6 x 236 seconds = 43,094 seconds =11.97 hours (and guess what? Using more precise values for the difference gets you that missing 0.03 hours). Gosh, isn’t that amazing? Funny what you can learn when you both to work these things out for yourself, isn’t it?

    • How do sun dials and ancient time pieces work all year round, then? And how does my trusty Rolex keep exact time year after year? Your so-called “exact” number of hours, minutes and seconds in a day — this “sidereal” day bull crap — is a lie, purposefully reverse engineered in retrospect after the error became apparent to fit the globe theory. The time in a day is precisely 24 hours. Yeah, I know it’s hard to believe, but God is capable of being that precise.

      • The difference between a solar day and sidereal day has been proven time and time again throughout history, all by men and women a lot more intelligent than you could ever hope to imagine. You don’t have a scrap of evidence or scientific principles to support your hypothesis, in fact everything we know about the laws of the universe disprove it.

      • Is this guy “more intelligent than me”… “When we consider what the advocates of the Earth’s stationary and central position can account for, and explain the celestial phenomena as accurately to their own thinking as we can ours, in addition to which they have the evidence of their senses and scripture and facts in their favor, which we have not; it is not without a show of reason that they maintain the superiority of their system… However perfect our theory may appear in our own estimation, and however simply and satisfactorily the Newtonian hypotheses may seem to us to account for all the celestial phenomena, yet we are here compelled to admit the astounding truth, if our premises be disputed and our facts challenged, the whole range of Astronomy does not contain one proof of its own accuracy.”

  5. Just wanted to say that we do see a different set of stars in the sky every six months, and that they do slowly, imperceptibly change from night to night as the Earth moves around the sun. If you don’t believe me, go outside some fine, clear, warm night in late June or early July, the kind of night where the fireflies are simply everywhere, and try to find Orion in the star-studded skies. I don’t think your efforts will be met with much success, but at least you’ll get to get outside.
    And if you didn’t know about how the constellations change over the course of a year, either you’re lying, or I feel really, really sad for you that you’ve never gotten to lay on the grass and just look up at the stars.

    • No, I’m not lying, and I don’t believe you either. Constellations have never changed their shape over the course of human history. If there are “imperceptible” changes, it is due to either innocent human error in calculation, or deliberate lies. You have offered no proof whatsoever. Just a statement that only SOUNDS plausible, which is a common tactic. But really good jab about me never going outside… truly original. Thanks for playing.

  7. Nooooooooooooo

    the constellations seem to move in the sky. It is imperceptible day after day but after six months is drasticly different to what you aw six months earlier. the constellations don’t move but as we rotate our perception of them moves. Doesn’t the scorpion, organs killer chase him across the sky? Next year the shape of the constellations will be the same. If you don’t believe the internet look it up in a book. greek myths maby? They may not have thought the world was flat but they saw the constellations move and where great thinkers.

    • “William,” First: I wouldn’t believe a word you’re saying, especially with your opening comment of — and I quote: “Nooooooooooooo.” Secondly: even YOU seem to be admitting that the constellations somehow come back into the exact same shapes and parallax year after year. This would be impossible in the current scientific model of the universe in which the stars are distant suns. If that were the case, all of them would be whirling away at thousands of miles per second, and thus the constellations would never “come back the next year” and form the same shapes. Thanks for the condescending, arrogant tone of your comments, though.

  8. And back to “Orion” lady. So, you think it makes sense that only one set of stars is observable at a different time shows we’re moving through space? That’s silly. We see the northern star that doesn’t move. As we move further and further south, it is no longer in our view. What we can begin the see is The Southern Cross. It’s perspective. We should see different stars on a regular basis or at least parallax.
