    So then in your assement, the orientation of mass on the sun, has no effect on the daily rotation and revolution of the earth.

    I would say that the suns distriubtion of mass 14.9 hours ahead of earth has a direct effect on the earth motion both in rotation and revolution. (and may be as small as 1.3 seconds under small variations of the weak force).
    Also that it takes about 1 degree of the suns surface to hold the earths mass in orbit. disturbance that occur within that one degree along the line of earths orbit determine the variation in earths motion.

    59,750,557 square miles of the suns surface equal 1 Degree

    Also the barrier at 91,113,792 miles form the sun is the suns rotational force acting on the solar system, it is this barrier or it should be said, it is the "envelope" as it spans the solar system causeing the revolution of the planets around the sun. Once the earth passes past that point it will move as venus and Mercury. (So the earth is about to fall out of the envelope).

    Love this Dwayne. The idea of hang gliders as a form of transport on an earth that has stopped spinning. On the sun side are mountains which were under oceans, now covered in mist.

    Well there are different stages to such a event, before the water evaoprates and creates a dew or mist across the face of the earth. there is the exspansion of the earth as a result a lack of centrifugal force, in which the water, oceans will be pushed up, neary covering the surface of the earth to the points where only the mountain tops can be seen (water world). it would rain for a while, as well a boat would be handy to have around.
    It will take awhile for the sun to evaporate the water off the surface of the earth to exspose land.

    Sounds like a exact dipiction of the story of Noahs Ark recorded in the Bible.

    Have you ever had that deja vu feeling?

    Sorry about the extra post,must be interferance from the magnetic feild, time delay.

    Apparently after the flood in the story of noah, some kind of physcial change occured to noah, and or his sons, so it does seem consitant, as humans could exspect a change in the gestation time or duration of pregancy. however there seems to be no mention of a endless day that would suggest the earth stopped spinning completely.

    Venus "spins" once a year, it's about the same size and nothing "floats" off it and the "sun doesn't make it start spinning again."

    Compared to what? There are 2 scenarios:

    1. It doesn't spin on its axis. Then we would have 365 long days, as Earth advances on its path around the Sun.

    2. It doesn't rotate compared to the Sun, meaning it rotates once in every 365 days, around its axis.

    You probably meant the later. I doubt there would be serious cataclysms, because the evaporating water would form a mist and protect from more sunshine. Will do a little research on the problem.

    Well superstring
    Veuns as i suspect is gradually being pushed around, simular to the out sides of the circle being pushed every few days, while the central parts of the circle are attempting to bring about a spin.
    the same thing will happen to earth eventually, right know earth has enough force acting on tyhe center that the earth if it where to stop at this distance from the sun it would start to spin again. but we are very close to the end point for this to continue much farther in earths histroy. The end point seems to be only about 1,000,000 miles or less form earths minimum distance from the sun. if the earth where some how jolted,knocked out of place during a magnetic pole reversal, we could end up in a difficult position. also the orbit of the earth around the suns has been recorded as changing and so they may put us in the same circumstance.

    What would happen if the earth stopped rotating?
    This reminds of a story I had read when I was younger. I don't now remember the source of that story. It was an Eastern myth I suppose. The myth says, "once there was a man who wished he could do anything he wanted. So God bestowed him this capability, Now anything he wanted or thought of would immediately come true. Once he learnt he could do anything just by saying it or thinking about it, he decided to try it. So he decided to stop the movement of the earth. The moment this taught passed his mind he and everything around him went flying into the sky. Everything from stones, houses, animals, trees, people, debris, mounts was passing by him and hitting each other and everything started to get destroyed. He was lucky to be fast enough think to himself "whatever happens, just let me survive this" right before he crashed the earth again. All but him died. He was sorry to wish for such a power, used his power to return everything to normal and then wish for his power to be taken.
    This I suppose has some tracks of reality in it.

    Could be neat if we lived on a world in tidal-lock with the sun (i.e., one side of the earth always faces the sun). Because the side facing would probably be so hot and the side away so cold, we'd probably have to live around the terminator I suppose. We would, quite literally, be living in The Twilight Zone...

    I think we would just be floating. Gravity is made by the rotation and the mass in space (such as a planet). Wich in easier terms; the bigger the planet, the hevier things are.

    There still would be seasons so that kinda stops that.

    if the earth would spin twice as fast we the gravity would be 2x harder. Lets say there is a 10 pound weight at normal (1) gravity 10 x 1 = 10. if the gravity would double the gravity would be 2. so the 10 pound weight would be 20 pounds. 10 x 2 = 20.

    If the world stopped spinning instantly then we would be flying at a speed of 1,666 kp/h if you were at the equator, but that is faster than the sound barrier so you would be ripped to shreads before you understand whats going on.

    Reversed?

    If the world spun in reverse then nothing will change (that i'm conserned about) but the stars and the sun on wich way they travle.
