    "Moral standards" are a lot like lighthouses: they exist to help us stay on course as we sail through life. But we have to steer BY them, but not directly AT them. Lest we end up marooned on the shoals of perpetual self-righteousness.

    Simple question. We eagerly await your answer or your explanation as to why it is not relevant.

    Ah, but it does have everything to do with a spinning globe.
    The statement that water seeks level is not technically incorrect. Water does not seek its own level. According to Pascal's principle, water seeks to distribute pressure uniformly throughout the liquid. This allows water to be used as a hydro-static level under certain conditions. When look at water spread over a globe then you must look at how gravity works. In its most simplistic explanation, gravity is a force that pulls everything towards the center of the Earth. This means that water, that does conform to whatever contains it, will be pulled around the outer surface of the globe. This is why it is important to have an accurate understanding of the scientific principles associated with the words that you use. You are using them incorrectly.

    Yes, but that is what astro-turfing does: not only does it create a false sense of a peculiar community of like-minded individuals, (causing some people to suddenly question things they had never even thought to question before, like PJ), but it also draws out others who may have never felt they had a voice or a platform before. And now you suddenly have the sense of a more acceptable platform and a voice for something you've apparently held to be true for a longer time frame than this has been going on in the online community. You might think about the high probability that the supposedly now massive flat earth online community is much more likely what is fake, and computer generated, as opposed to satellite footage.
