This Can Only Work on a Flat Earth
Do you think you can outrun a bullet? Most people would say no, but science tells us that
we can. Can you dodge a bullet? Most of us wouldn't want to try, but science says that
we can. All you need is a basic understanding of how science works. Let's set up an
experiment where I shoot at you and you see if you can outrun or dodge the bullet.
Science tells us that the earth spins from west to east at approximately 1000 mph which is
about 1500 feet per second. They also tell us that everything on the earth including the
air and the clouds are moving at this speed and in this direction. The ballistic tests for
my gun says that the bullet will travel at 1200 feet per second at 400 yds. So let's test this
You stand 1200 feet away from me facing west and I will stand facing you. According to
science, we are both moving 1500 fps west to east along with the earth and atmosphere. I
will aim the gun at you and pull the trigger. The bullet will race towards you at 1200 fps.
But you will be moving away from the bullet at 1500 fps. Therefore the bullet cannot hit
you because you are moving faster than the bullet. But wait, I know I can hit you with the
bullet, you can't outrun it, so what's wrong here. It's because science tells us that
everything moves at the same speed as the earth, including the bullet. Yet the ballistic
test tells me that the bullet travels at 1200 fps but science tells us that the bullet is now
moving at 1500 fps. So which one is it? Are they wrong? Or does it depend on which
direction I shoot? Let's test that out.
You stand 1200 feet away from me facing east this time. When I fire the gun at you, you
will then be approaching the bullet at 1500 fps while the bullet is approaching you at 1200
fps. Therefore the bullet should take less time to arrive which would mean that the bullet
actually travels faster than 1200 fps. But wait, the ballistic tests show 1200 fps. So what
speed is the bullet actually travelling at in this direction?
Then you face north and I face south. We are 1200 feet apart. I fire at you. The bullet
takes one second to reach you. But wait. You have moved 1500 feet to the right in that
one second that it took for the bullet to arrive. How could I hit you? Yet I know I can.
Does this mean that the bullet now travels at an angle to allow for the rotation of the
earth? And does this mean that the ballistic tests in this direction would be less than
1200 fps because of the extra distance the bullet has to travel?
The ballistic tests show clearly that the speed is 1200 fps with no specifications regarding
direction. Yet in these experiments, we should get three different speeds depending on
the direction we shoot. How can this be? Should I contact the manufacturer and ask
them to clarify whether their ballistic testing accounted for the earth's rotation, or should I
question whether we are actually moving at 1500 fps west to east. It would sure be much
easier to figure out if we didn't have scientists telling us these things wouldn't it. You
aim, fire, bang, dead, blow the smoke off the barrel, put the gun back in the holster and
ride off into the sunset. BTW....did you know that you can actually move faster than a
speeding bullet? Now there's something to brag about....Superman!
