Why doesn’t the dark side of the Earth freeze at night in the globe model?

If the Earth is a sphere (or an oblate spheroid), and the two supposed poles of the ball Earth are perpetually covered with ice and experience extreme freezing cold temperatures, then why doesn’t the dark side of the supposed ball Earth experience extreme cold temperatures every night when it is facing away from the sun as the Earth spins on its axis? The distance between the Sun and the equator at night, for instance, would be far greater than the distance of the poles from the Sun, and therefore should experience extreme drops in temperature. But that does not happen. As we all know, temperatures at the equator at night usually don’t reach the freezing point.

Why doesn't the dark side of the globe freeze at night?

    My guess is that it’s not away from the Sun long enough to drop to freezing, whereas the poles are kept almost continuously away from direct sunlight. Thats the most logical answer I can think of anyway. 😊

    I would start with this; in the FE model, places on the equator experience light and dark intervals daily, just like a globe model. I’ve not heard of any differences in the length of these periods between these 2 models.

    Therefore, I believe your question can be revised as; during the time a spot on the equator is dark (aka – night or receiving no sun radiation), why doesn’t it freeze?

    The question is identical for either model; unless there is evidence that while both are dark, the level of sun radiation varies between them.

    Is there anything missing from this approach to the question?

    Please ignore that word, which plays no role in the ideas presented.

    The revised question is valid, unless someone has a valid response showing this is not so.

    It does on planets with am atmosphere.

    Actually, night time temperatures can reach freezing in the Sahara desert at night.

    They claim the moon is +200 during the day and at nite its -200 ( plus or minus ). SO, the earth should do the same.

      IF the moon and earth were round and rotating, the backside ( at night ) is facing toward space – cold, dark space. If the moon drops to a minus , any temperature minus, because its facing away from the sun then the earth should do likewise. It should get very cold from lack of heat. A solar oven will get to + 300 and more during the day. The shiny cone will focus the suns rays and it gets hot. At nite when the moon is full and its cloudless the cone focused on a container of water will form ice crystals. The cold is focused now to the container. I understand the earth absorbs heat during the day and releases it at nite. Supposedly ” so does the moon! If the moon has a temperature change of 400 degrees ( +200 to -200 or whatever they claim ) then the earth should be similar, going from a high of 90 degrees to a nite temp of minus 90 degrees. So, the way I see it we are flat AND sheltered in a dome OR covering of some type ( clouds ? I don’t know ) that shelters us from the full impact of outer space cold.
      How anybody can say the moon is + anything OR minus anything is beyond me. As far as I know the moon landing is not true “Hollywood”. We have never been there.

      SO, now I have a question. Why are things being hid from us ?? Not just the flat Earth thing but also Giants that were on the Earth ( bones found in caves ), Indians on the American Continent were not illiterate, they had writings ( plates found in caves ) , etc. Why are thing hidden from us. The Smithsonian institution had stuff given them and then “lost or misplaced it”. OK, this is about Earth, I know but these things are related somehow.

      Hey Burntoast, where do you get off suggesting things like “there are no atmosphere on the moon”??? and the rest of this nonsensiccal reply.

      and opening with “First; there are no such thing as “cold” rays or radiation or anything whereby “cold” can be focused or transferred in any way, including the scenario you describe. Cold is the absence of heat; it is not a real thing. There is no way to substantiate the idea you describe with any reliable evidence.”

      What the heck are you talking about Sir? “no such thing as cold”, cold is the absence of heat…ah suns out and snow is on the ground…how is that “absent of heat”??? “no such thing as radiation”, really???
      Where does the ‘Vacuum of space begin’? how can rockets push of a frictionless, dragless vacuum? How can the ISS travel in the Thermosphere at NASA told temps of up to 3500 F???, How do you know we went to the Moon? All we have is the word of NASA, full of Freemasons and actors like Neil DisGrace Tyson???
      Is your evidence solely from Space. com and NASA and the like? have you not done any research on this site with over 900 posts?

      For your education and edification, i suggest you click on link header, “STart Here” so you can learn the alt. Flat Earth truth instead of spouting platitudes of nonsensical fake news from NASA and the like…

    We did not go to the moon – the earth is flat

    You are obnoxious and I will not entertain any more conversation with you. I came here to learn, not to have somebody throw around obnoxious comments.

      Thomas, if disagreeing with you means someone is obnoxious, that’s unfortunate.

      The link posted is a single anecdotal reference (which is not a fact at all), and isn’t worth serious consideration. Heat will naturally radiate from warmth to a cooler area, but will not do more than even out the temperature between them.

      Any claim of such a phenomenon should include physical evidence under controlled conditions, otherwise a false claim using fakery might occur.

      Please feel free to not respond, as you wanted; it is still useful to debunk shady stories from fooling others.
