200 Proof: 1000 MPH Winds

23) Ball-believers often claim “gravity” magically and inexplicably drags the entire lower-atmosphere of the Earth in perfect synchronization up to some undetermined height where this progressively faster spinning atmosphere gives way to the non-spinning, non-gravitized, non-atmosphere of infinite vacuum space. Such non-sensical theories are debunked, however, by rain, fireworks, birds, bugs, clouds, smoke, planes and projectiles all of which would behave very differently if both the ball-Earth and its atmosphere were constantly spinning Eastwards at 1000mph.

Atmospheric movements are more complicated than this. They require an understanding of fluid dynamics, thermal changes, and air density. This results in weather currents. In general though, this of course makes sense. The closer air is to the Earth, the more the things like trees, hills, and buildings will cause the air to move at the same velocity as the ground. Because of the air currents and lack of friction further up, the atmospheric winds are able to climb until air density and temperature decline to a level that causes the atmosphere’s movement to slow.

I’m honestly not sure how rain, fireworks, birds, bugs, clouds, smoke, planes, or projectiles behave differently. In fact, they behave precisely the way they should on a ball Earth. All of these things move with relative velocity the way they should on a ball Earth.
