But as I've said for years, they do provoke us to refine our own understanding and methods of discourse
What is the sun, first of all?
a burning ball of fire? pfft. a nuclear reactor? pish
a plasma light bulb? dunno
Let's compare the sun to a jet plane, which cruises about 500 mph, often around 5 miles in altitude.
The sun is much higher, maybe 300 miles up. The Wild Heretic may say 3000 miles.
So I'll guess it also moves 500 mph.
I can't find the video Dr. Zach and his friends made a few years ago.
They tracked the position of the sun over a year and plotted it above the flat earth azimuthal_equidistant map. It looked something like this.
height has nothing to do with it
from one noon to the next it's 24 hours, yes?
all you need now to calculate the velocity of your sun is the length of your equator
btw, even if it was "only" 500mph you'd still have a lot of centrifugal force
what's with that?
