Quote of the Day

occams-razor-definition

“If the Earth were a globe, rolling and dashing through “space” at the rate of “a hundred miles in five seconds of time,”

the waters of seas and oceans could not, by any known law, be kept on its surface – the assertion that they could be retained under these circumstances being an outrage upon human understanding and credulity!

But as the Earth –that is, the habitable world of dry land – is found to be “standing out of the wafer and in the water” of the “mighty deep,” whose circumferential boundary is ice,

we may throw the statement back into the teeth of those who make it and flaunt before their faces the flag of reason and common sense, inscribed with a proof that the Earth is not a globe.”

~William Carpenter, 100 Proofs Earth Not A Globe
