 Pro My opponent has to prove Earth moves. Good luck.Report this Argument Con The Earth can be shown to move by observing its rotation- as it rotates, different areas are illuminated by the Sun and this causes night and day. Hence, the existence of night and day demonstrates that the Earth is moving. See source 3 for more.The Earth can also be shown to have its centre of momentum frame (explained simply in Source 1 and in mathematics on page 8 of source 2) to be moving, which is what is usually meant by something "moving". This is done by observing the seasons- the Earth's axis of rotation is tilted at a slight angle, and so as the Earth orbits around the sun, different parts of the Earth experience different amounts of daylight at different points in the cycle. Hence, the seasons demonstrate that the Earth orbits the Sun (and that the Earth's axis of rotation is tilted). See sources 4 and 5.Hence, the Earth is moving, and orbits the sun. My case rests.Sources:[1]: https://en.wikipedia.org...[2]: http://users.physics.harvard.edu...[3]: http://sciencing.com...[4]: http://www.weatherquestions.com...[5]: https://www.youtube.com...Report this Argument This round has not been posted yet.

I'm pretty sure I've seen you from somewhere... Turns out, you did post a few debates over a year ago.

Not sure. Maybe both.

in what sense? That it rotates? Orbits around the sun?
